Rangers placed 3B Adrian Beltre on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 1, with a sprained left thumb.
Beltre suffered a lacerated and dislocated left thumb when he attempted to break up a double play during Sunday's game. He's expected to miss 2-3 weeks. Top prospect Joey Gallo is being called up from Double-A and will fill in at third base.
Rays designated RHP Ernesto Frieri for assignment.
The Rays bought low on Frieri over the winter in hopes that he would show his old form, but he posted a mediocre 4.63 ERA and 19/11 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 innings while allowing six home runs. He has an $800,000 guarantee with Tampa Bay.
The Dodgers are expected to call up left-hander Ian Thomas on Tuesday.
He'll serve as the 26th man for Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rockies. Thomas, who was recently acquired from the Braves in the Juan Uribe deal, has a 3.94 ERA and 18/11 K/BB ratio over 16 innings in the majors.
Juan Nicasio will start the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rockies.
Nicasio has a solid 1.29 ERA and 28/11 K/BB ratio in 21 innings this season, but he hasn't thrown more than 38 pitches in an appearance this season. In other words, look for this to be a bullpen game for the Dodgers.
Rajai Davis is expected to be placed on the paternity leave list Tuesday.
Davis has left the team in order to be present for the birth of his second child. He can be away from the team for 24 to 72 hours. Daniel Fields is set to be called up to replace him on the active roster.
The Tigers are expected to promote outfielder Daniel Fields from Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Rajai Davis is expected to be placed on the paternity leave list. Fields, 24, is batting .271/.394/.486 with three home runs, 21 RBI, and nine stolen bases over 48 games this season in Triple-A. He'll be making his major league debut.
Jenrry Mejia is slated to return to the United States in about 10 days to begin a throwing program.
Mejia was placed on the disabled list in early April due to right elbow inflammation before being handed an 80-game PED suspension. He'll be eligible to return on July 7 and Mets manager Terry Collins said Monday that they'll find a spot for him in their bullpen.
Michael Pineda improved to 7-2 after limiting the Mariners to two runs in six innings as the Yankees went on to a 7-2 victory on Monday.
Both runs scored in Pineda's final inning. He took the mound in the seventh, allowed a single, a triple, and a double before walking Brad Miller and earning a trip to the showers. He had more than enough run support. Pineda allowed seven hits, walked two, and struck out nine. He'll bring a 3.33 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and an 80/17 K/BB ratio over 76 2/3 innings into a home start versus the Angels next.
