Twins activated 3B Miguel Sano from the 10-day disabled list.

Sano will be back in the Twins' starting lineup for Friday night's series opener against the Mariners after missing a little under four weeks with a left hamstring strain. He batted .375/.474/.750 with two home runs over five rehab games with Triple-A Rochester.

Twins optioned OF Jake Cave to Triple-A Rochester.

Cave hit a home run in his major league debut last Saturday, but he ultimately went 1-for-9 in his short stay with Minnesota. Miguel Sano has been activated off the disabled list in a corresponding move.

Mark Trumbo (knee) is not in the lineup for Thursday's tilt against the White Sox.

It makes back-to-back games that Trumbo will be out of the lineup because of the knee trouble. Baltimore manager Buck Showalter told reporters that if Trumbo doesn't show improvement on Friday, he'll be reevaluated for a possible DL stint. Craig Gentry will play right field and hit seventh against Lucas Giolito.

Blue Jays pitching prospect Sean Reid-Foley has been promoted from Double-A New Hampshire to Triple-A Buffalo.

Reid-Foley earned the level bump by posting a 2.03 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 52 strikeouts over 44 1/3 innings (eight starts) this season at the Double-A level. The former second-round pick had a rough 2017 at New Hampshire, but he can again be considered one of the top pitching prospects in the Blue Jays' system.

Indians signed RHP Mitch Talbot to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Columbus.

Talbot hasn't appeared in a major league game since way back in 2011, but he put up strong numbers (1.93 ERA in five starts) over the last several weeks with the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League. The 34-year-old right-hander will join the rotation at Columbus.

White Sox recalled OF Charlie Tilson from Triple-A Charlotte.

Tilson was batting just .248/.288/.298 through 173 plate appearances this season at the Triple-A level, but the White Sox need outfield help with Leury Garcia (hamstring) landing on the disabled list Thursday morning. Tilson has good speed and could see semi-regular action in the Chicago outfield, but he's not a strong enough hitter to warrant consideration in standard mixed fantasy leagues.
May 24 - 11:27 AM

White Sox placed OF Leury Garcia on the 10-day disabled list with a left knee sprain.

Garcia suffered the injury on Wednesday night against the Orioles and could be out a while. The 27-year-old outfielder had two home runs and nine stolen bases through 39 games this season with the White Sox.
May 24 - 11:25 AM

White Sox purchased the contract of C Alfredo Gonzalez from Triple-A Charlotte.

Gonzalez will serve as the backup to Omar Narvaez, who has become the new starting catcher for the White Sox in the wake of Welington Castillo's performance-enhancing drug suspension. Gonzalez, 25, was batting just .169/.279/.191 in 105 plate appearances this season at the Triple-A level.
