Brian McCann is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday.
It's nothing more than a routine day of rest for the veteran backstop being a day game after a night game. John Ryan Murphy will get the start behind the plate and will hit eighth against Nick Martinez and the Rangers.
Leonys Martin is not in the Rangers starting lineup on Saturday.
It appears as though the Rangers will continue to ride the hot hand, with Delino DeShields again starting in center field and hitting leadoff for the Rangers against opposing southpaw C.C. Sabathia. Look for Martin to return to the lineup on Sunday.
Brad Miller is not in the Mariners starting lineup on Saturday against the Blue Jays.
He'll take a seat against opposing southpaw Mark Buehrle, with Chris Taylor starting at shortstop and hitting ninth for the M's. Look for Miller to be back in there for Sunday's series finale.
Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Orioles have agreed to a minor league contract with LHP Ariel Miranda.
The deal with the 25-year-old Cuban left-hander is contingent on him passing a physical. Miranda last pitched in Cuba's Serie Nacional in 2013, posting a 3.24 ERA, 9.3 K/9 and 3.2 BB/9 in 13 starts.
Orioles optioned RHP Tyler Wilson to Triple-A Norfolk.
He was sent out to open a spot in the bullpen for Oliver Drake. The 25-year-old posted a 4.50 ERA, 2.50 WHIP and 1/0 K/BB ratio in his two innings with the big league club. He should get another opportunity with the Orioles at some point during the season.
Orioles recalled RHP Oliver Drake from Triple-A Norfolk.
The 28-year-old hurler was outstanding over 18 2/3 innings at Norfolk, registering a 0.96 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 30/4 K/BB ratio while accruing eight saves. He'll work in middle relief for the Orioles, but could eventually work himself into a setup role.
Athletics recalled RHP Kendall Graveman from Triple-A Nashville.
The right-hander will start for the A's on Saturday in place of the injured Drew Pomeranz. After struggling in the big league rotation, Graveman seems to have righted the ship, posting a 1.85 ERA over four starts at Triple-A.
Athletics placed OF Coco Crisp on the 15-day disabled list with compressed discs in his neck.
There are no immediate plans for the off-injured outfielder to undergo surgery, but also no clear timetable for his return. At this stage, fantasy owners may be wise to cut bait and free up a roster spot.
