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.
Apr 19 - 3:38 PM

Braves recalled RHP Matt Wisler from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Wisler will make a spot start for the Braves on Thursday night against the Mets. The 25-year-old right-hander owns a 5.26 ERA in 298 career innings at the major league level and is not a recommended fantasy streamer.
Apr 19 - 3:33 PM

Braves designated OF Lane Adams for assignment.

The move clears a roster spot for Matt Wisler, who will make a spot start for the Braves on Thursday night against the Mets. Adams went 4-for-17 (.235) during his three-week stay with the Braves.
