Yankees optioned INF Gregorio Petit to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Tuesday's starter, Chase Whitley, will take his spot on the active roster. Petit, 30, was batting .208 (5-for-24) with three doubles and five RBI over 13 games with the Yankees this season.
Apr 28 - 2:38 PM

Nationals recalled RHP A.J. Cole from Triple-A Syracuse.

With Max Scherzer (thumb) pushed back, the Nationals considered using Tanner Roark for a spot start Tuesday against the Braves, but they ultimately opted for Cole to pitch in what will be his major league debut. Scherzer is expected to be fine in a couple of days, so Cole will likely be sent right back down after the game. The 23-year-old posted a 2.40 ERA and 10/1 K/BB ratio over his first 15 innings in Triple-A this season.
Apr 28 - 2:32 PM

Rockies prospect SS/2B Trevor Story had another huge game on Monday, going 3-for-4 with a pair of home runs and five RBI for Double-A New Britain.

Story, 22, has been on a tear to begin the season, as Monday’s three-hit performance pushed his batting line to .397/.494/.714 through 18 games, and he now has 10 extra-base hits, 19 RBI, four steals and an improved strikeout-to-walk ratio of 19/12. He split the 2014 season between both middle-infield positions, but this year he’s seen time at shortstop almost exclusively. Story will always have some swing-and-miss to his game, but he makes lots of hard contact and possesses above-average power. Should he continue down this path and maintain his improved approach, then it’s possible that Story could receive his first taste of the major leagues later this year.
Apr 28 - 2:31 PM

Nationals optioned RHP Rafael Martin to Triple-A Syracuse.

The move clears a spot for Tuesday's starter, A.J. Cole, on the active roster. Martin allowed seven runs (five earned) in five innings over four appearances since being called up to the big club earlier this month.
Apr 28 - 2:29 PM

The Dodgers plan to call up Enrique Hernandez from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

The corresponding roster move isn't yet known. Hernandez, who was acquired from the Marlins in the Dee Gordon deal over the winter, batted .248/.321/.421 over 42 games as a rookie last season and can provide some depth between the infield and the outfield.
Apr 28 - 2:26 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez is lined up to start Wednesday against the White Sox.

He'll oppose Jeff Samardzija. This was the original matchup for Tuesday, but the game was postponed due to the ongoing protests in Baltimore. As of now, it's not certain that Wednesday's game will be played either.
Apr 28 - 2:21 PM

Cubs prospect C/OF Kyle Schwarber went 2-for-3 with a solo home run on Monday for Double-A Tennessee.

Schwarber now has three homers on the season, and he’s batting .370/.483/.652 with 10 RBI and a 13/11 strikeout-to-walk ratio through 14 games. The 22-year-old has been especially hot of late, as he’s posted a robust .464/.467/.750 batting line with 13 hits during his current six-game hitting streak. Meanwhile, he’s driven in at least one run in each game during that span. There’s little doubt Schwarber would continue to hit even if rushed to the major leagues, but the Cubs are wise to use his first full professional season to determine whether he can stick behind the plate.
Apr 28 - 2:20 PM

Devin Mesoraco (hip) is out of the Reds' lineup again for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.

Mesoraco is still on the active roster despite the fact that he hasn't started a game since April 11 due to a lingering hip impingement. Of course, he had a pinch-hit appearance on April 26, so putting him on the DL now might not do them much good. He remains day-to-day.
