Rays recalled INF/OF Jake Elmore from Triple-A Durham.
Elmore is starting in left field and batting sixth in his return to the Rays on Monday. The 27-year-old is a .226/.292/.311 career hitter at the big league level.
Rays recalled INF Tim Beckham from Triple-A Durham.
Beckham was just optioned to the minors last week, but the Rays need him to provide infield depth with first baseman James Loney ruled out indefinitely after suffering a broken finger. Beckham was batting just .224/.266/.459 at the time of his May 22 demotion. He's doubtful to hold mixed-league fantasy value.
Rays placed 1B James Loney on the 15-day disabled list with a broken finger.
It was initially called a sprain, but further testing revealed the fracture. It's not clear how long Loney might be out. Tampa Bay will use a mix of players at first base. Logan Forsythe is starting there Monday night.
Orioles third base prospect Drew Dosch contributed a career-high six RBI Sunday in a win for High-A Frederick.
He won the game with a walk-off three-run homer, his second of the season. His six runs driven in were the most by a Frederick hitter since Chris Vinyard delivered seven RBI during a game in 2008. Dosch needed a double to hit for the cycle. The 22-year-old leads the Carolina League with 32 RBI and is tied for seventh with 19 walks.
Pirates outfield prospect Josh Bell delivered four hits in Sunday's win for Double-A Altoona
All of his hits were singles. The 22-year-old is now second in the Eastern League in batting average (.338), fourth in RBI (29), seventh in walks (21) and third in on base percentage (.412). Bell has shown remarkable consistency all season, batting .325 in May after hitting an even more robust .352 in April. He's struck out just 14 times in 151 at-bats. Altoona fans should get to the park soon because Bell won't be in Double-A for much longer.
Sean Doolittle (shoulder) is expected to return from the disabled list on Tuesday.
Doolittle has spent the first two months of the 2015 regular season rehabbing a slight tear in his left rotator cuff. He allowed five runs in five innings on his rehab assignment, so the A's will likely ease him back into high-leverage situations. The 28-year-old southpaw should eventually take over for Tyler Clippard at closer.
Blue Jays activated SS Jose Reyes from the 15-day disabled list.
Reyes is back with the Jays after missing four weeks with a cracked rib. He went 4-for-11 with two RBI on a three-game rehab assignment at Triple-A Buffalo and should be activated immediately in fantasy leagues. The veteran shortstop was batting just .250/.266/.300 in 16 games before the injury, but he can get it going in a hurry.
Blue Jays optioned INF Munenori Kawasaki to Triple-A Buffalo.
Kawasaki was in the majors for less than a week. His roster spot will be filled by shortstop Jose Reyes, who was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move.
