Kevin Kiermaier had to leave Wednesday's game against the Mariners after being hit on the right ankle by a pitch in the sixth inning.
Kiermaier initially stayed in but had to leave after the seventh. The Rays should have more on his status later Wednesday, but it doesn't seem to be terribly serious.
Cardinals recalled C Ed Easley from Triple-A Memphis.
Easley was up briefly with the big club earlier this season but didn't receive an at-bat. His stay this time around is also likely to be short, as Jon Jay (wrist) is due back from the disabled list Friday.
Cardinals placed 1B Matt Adams on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right quad.
It's not clear at this point how severe the strain is, so a timetable for Adams' return isn't known at the moment. It certainly figures to be more than a minimum stay on the DL, though, and could be a rather lengthy one. Mark Reynolds will handle first base in the meantime.
Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa broke an 0-for-8 slump by belting his third homer Tuesday for Triple-A Fresno.
Correa also gunned down a runner at home plate. The 20-year-old has shown he belongs by hitting .283 in his first 14 games at Triple-A. He's hitting second in a potent Fresno lineup and looks poised to be a big-time contributor. The Astros have done fine without him this season but there's certainly a chance Corra could play at the big league level this season.
Ike Davis (quad) will take batting practice on the field Thursday.
It will be his first bit of baseball activity since he landed on the disabled list a couple weeks ago with a Grade 2 strain in his left quad. Obviously running is going to be a bigger test for Davis and it's not clear when he might be able to do that.
Rangers catching prospect Jorge Alfaro slammed his fourth home run of the year Tuesday in a win for Double-A Frisco.
Alfaro also homered in Monday night's contest. He's hit .333 during his five-game hitting streak. The 21-year-old got off to a hot start (.328 average in April) but has cooled off considerably in the month of May (.233 in 86 at-bats). He's done a lot of his damage against left-handers, batting .429 with two homers in 21 at-bats.
Orioles designated OF Alejandro De Aza for assignment.
He played really well for the O's last year down the stretch of the regular season and in the playoffs, but they've decided to cut him loose after his slow start in 2015. De Aza, who batted leadoff for Baltimore on Opening Day, has hit just .214/.277/.359 over 30 games this season and was seeing his playing time dwindle. He's making $5 million this season, which means he'll almost surely clear waivers.
Braves infield prospect Elmer Reyes has been charged with kidnapping and rape following an incident that allegedly occurred over the weekend in Ohio.
Reyes, who plays with Triple-A Gwinnett, allegedly forced himself upon a woman in a hotel room after Friday’s game against Triple-A Columbus. The 24-year-old is free on bond and is scheduled for a June 2 court appearance.
