Rockies prospect David Dahl suffered a concussion and broken rib in a nasty on-field collision.

Dahl might also have a ruptured spleen and will obviously be sidelined for an extended period. The 21-year-old outfielder was batting just .263/.290/.374 with three home runs through 43 games this season at Double-A New Britain, though he has tallied 11 stolen bases. Dahl was the 10th overall pick in the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft.

Blue Jays optioned RHP Scott Copeland to Triple-A Buffalo.

Copeland didn't make an appearance in his nine-day stay with the major league club. He tossed three scoreless innings of relief for the Blue Jays earlier this season. The 27-year-old righty will be up and down all season.

Angels prospect Roberto Baldoquin aggravated his previously-strained left lat muscle while rehabbing at the Angels' spring training complex in Arizona.

Baldoquin has been on the disabled list at High-A Inland Empire since April 23 and he's no closer to returning now. "For him to be out this long, I think there’s more in there (in his lat area) that we’re not finding," Inland Empire manager Denny Hocking told the Orange County Register. "That’s what I think. I’m not around it, but I hope there’s something more because he needs to be on the field to develop his skills." Baldoquin signed for $8 million last December after defecting from Cuba.

Alfredo Marte is expected to join the Angels on Thursday.

He'll be replacing Collin Cowgill, who is headed for the disabled list with a hand injury. Marte was batting .343/.401/.540 with four home runs and 32 RBI in 37 games this season at Triple-A Salt Lake and should start in left field for the Angels against left-handed pitching. He may have some short-term value in AL-only fantasy leagues.

Wei-Yin Chen could have his next start pushed back.

It's not clear exactly what's ailing Chen, but the Orioles have listed his spot Saturday against the Rays as to-be-determined. There should be an update soon. Chen owns a sharp 3.13 ERA, 1.189 WHIP, and 44/14 K/BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings (nine starts) this season.

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, Dan Black is headed to the Korea Baseball Organization.

Black was batting .324/.457/.568 with six home runs and 24 RBI through 34 games this season at Triple-A Charlotte but probably wasn't going to get a shot in Chicago. The 27-year-old first baseman stands to make a fatter paycheck overseas anyway. He's reportedly signing with KT Wiz, a club based in Suwon, South Korea.

Pirates prospect Nick Kingham underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery on Wednesday.

Kingham hadn't pitched since May 6 and was diagnosed this week with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his throwing elbow. The 23-year-old right-hander ranked 67th on Baseball Prospectus' top-100 prospects list over the winter after posting a 3.34 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 119/52 K/BB ratio in 159 innings last season between Double-A Altoona and Triple-A Indianapolis. He won't pitch again until late 2016. It's obviously a significant blow to the Bucs' rotation depth.

The appeal hearing for Brian Matusz's eight-game suspension is scheduled for June 3.

Matusz was delivered the eight-game sentence from Major League Baseball on Monday after getting caught with a sticky grip-enhancer on his arm Saturday during an appearance against the Marlins. It's doubtful the lefty reliever will be able to get it reduced, but he's been able to continue pitching while the process plays out.
