Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Josh Donaldson (shoulder) "felt great" after throwing on Thursday.

Donaldson is eligible to return from the disabled list this weekend, though Gibbons confirmed Thursday that he needs more time. The former MVP has been battling shoulder issues since spring training. Yangervis Solarte will continue to fill in at third base for Toronto.
Apr 19 - 4:13 PM

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said he expects Tommy Kahnle (shoulder) to miss about three weeks.

Kahnle was placed on the disabled list Tuesday due to tendinitis in his right shoulder and biceps. He'll be in no-throw mode for 10 days before attempting to ramp things back up. The 28-year-old right-hander had struggled to a 6.14 ERA and 9/8 K/BB ratio through 7 1/3 innings this season while showing diminished zip on his fastball.

Freddie Freeman (wrist) is starting at first base and hitting third Thursday night against the Mets.

Freeman took a pitch off his left wrist on Wednesday -- the same wrist he fractured last season -- but tests came back negative for any fractures and he has talked his way into the lineup for Thursday's series opener versus the Mets. What a gamer.
Apr 19 - 3:51 PM

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Thursday that Clint Frazier is working out "full-bore" with High-A Tampa.

It sounds like he'll start playing in some real games soon. Frazier suffered a concussion in late February and battled lingering symptoms for several weeks, but he seems to be past all of that now. The 23-year-old outfielder will likely be stationed at Triple-A/Scranton-Wilkes-Barre before the end of the month.

Blue Jays activated OF Dalton Pompey from the 10-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Buffalo.

The outfield in Toronto is crowded, so both Pompey and Anthony Alford (hamstring) will be stationed at Triple-A where they can get regular playing time. Alford was placed on the MLB disabled list on Opening Day after suffering a right wrist strain early in camp.
Apr 19 - 3:45 PM

Blue Jays activated OF Anthony Alford from the 10-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Buffalo.

Alford is recovered from his Grade 2 hamstring strain, but the Blue Jays don't have a spot for him right now on their major league roster. The 23-year-old outfield prospect should get a shot at some point this summer.
Apr 19 - 3:43 PM

Marlins recalled RHP Merandy Gonzalez from Double-A Jacksonville.

Gonzalez was working out of the rotation at Jacksonville, but it looks like the Marlins are planning to use him in long relief -- at least initially. The 22-year-old right-hander owns an impressive 2.54 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 332 strikeouts in 379 2/3 career minor league innings.
Apr 19 - 3:40 PM

Marlins placed LHP Chris O'Grady on the 10-day disabled list with a left shoulder sprain.

It's unclear how long he might be sidelined. O'Grady holds a 6.43 ERA, 1.57 WHIP, and 8/4 K/BB ratio in seven innings this season out of the Miami bullpen.
