Mariners acquired INF/OF Patrick Kievlehan from the Rangers for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

The Rangers designated the utility man for assignment earlier in the week and were looking to flip him for anything that they could get. Kievlehan returns to the M's organization after being dealt away in the trade that sent Leonys Martin to the Mariners.

Mike Clevinger struggled in a no-decision against the Orioles on Sunday, yielding four runs on four hits over four innings.

Clevinger struck out four and walked three on the afternoon. Three of the four runs to score on his watch came home courtesy of a bases-clearing double by Mark Trumbo in the very first inning. The 25-year-old right-hander has now made three starts and has allowed at least four runs in all of them.
May 29 - 4:34 PM

Chris Tillman struggled to keep the ball in the park during Sunday's win over the Indians, allowing three home runs and four total runs over six innings.

Carlos Santana and Mike Napoli burned Tillman for a pair of home runs in the fourth inning. Napoli's was of the two-run variety. Jason Kipnis would hit a solo shot off the right-hander in the sixth to polish off the scoring on his line. Tillman has now allowed five home runs over his last three starts after surrendering just one dinger through his first seven outings. Despite his recent homer-happy ways, Tillman owns a smooth 2.92 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 61/27 K/BB ratio over 64 2/3 innings. He will hit the road for a date with the Yankees next time he toes the rubber.
May 29 - 4:33 PM

Rays activated RHP Brad Boxberger from the 15-day disabled list.

Rays skipper Kevin Cash has already announced that he'll ease Boxberger back into the ninth inning role, which he has the luxury of doing with Alex Colome pitching well in the closer's role. It's likely that Boxberger will return to that role within a week or so.
May 29 - 4:28 PM

Rays placed RHP Ryan Webb on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 27, with a right pectoral strain.

The 30-year-old right-hander isn't expected to be out long, and could return after a minimum stint on the disabled list. In 17 outings before hitting the shelf, he posted a 3.31 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 10/3 K/BB ratio over 16 1/3 innings.
May 29 - 4:23 PM

Dustin Ackley was removed from Sunday's game against the Rays with a shoulder injury.

Ackley suffered the injury while sliding. He's heading for an MRI and could be looking at a possible stint on the disabled list. Expect an update from the Yankees on his status after learning the MRI results.
May 29 - 4:19 PM

Yunel Escobar was removed from Sunday's game against the Astros with an apparent wrist injury.

Escobar sustained the injury diving for a ground ball. The Angels have been decimated by injuries throughout the season, and it would be another big blow if they lose their leadoff hitter for any significant amount of time. Expect an update on his status shortly.
May 29 - 4:16 PM

Starlin Castro went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Rays.

Castro's two-run homer off Jake Odorizzi in the seventh inning proved to be the only hit the Yankees managed on the afternoon. It would be enough to boost the team to a 2-1 win. For the season, Castro is slashing .253/.287/.425 with nine doubles, seven homers and 21 RBI over 186 at-bats. He is already halfway home to tying his career-high for homers.
