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.
X-rays on the hand of Hanley Ramirez came back negative late Friday.
He was hit by a pitch during Friday's loss to the Angels and was removed from the game. He appears to have avoided any serious injury and should be considered day-to-day.
Nick Ahmed homered and delivered a game-winning single in the 13th as the Diamondbacks edged the Cubs 5-4 on Friday.
Nick Ahmed? The homer was his first of 2015 and second in 174 major league at-bats. He raised his average from .l94 to .212 with his first three-hit game of the year. His defense has been terrific, which is why he won the job in the first place. Anything he offers with the bat is a bonus as far as the Diamondbacks are concerned.
Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI against the Cubs on Friday.
After the Cubs pulled ahead in the 10th, it was Goldschmidt's two-run homer that tied the game back up. He's certainly in the running for early NL MVP honors with his .331 average, 11 homers and 35 RBI in 41 games.
Hector Rondon gave up two runs in the 10th to blow a save against the Diamondbacks on Friday.
A Paul Goldschmidt homer tied up the game, giving Rondon his third blown save in 12 chances this year. It's just the second homer Rondon has allowed, and he has a solid 18/5 K/BB ratio in 19 innings, so his job should be safe.
