Cubs optioned RHP Felix Pena to Triple-A Iowa.

Pena has allowed four runs (three earned) in eight innings with a 9/4 K/BB ratio this season. Justin Grimm will take his spot in the Cubs' bullpen.
May 29 - 1:21 PM

Nationals optioned LHP Matt Grace to Triple-A Syracuse.

The move clears a spot for Stephen Drew's return from the disabled list. Grace owns a 4.05 ERA over seven appearances with the Nats this season and should get another shot at some point soon.
May 29 - 1:19 PM

Nationals activated INF Stephen Drew from the 10-day disabled list.

Drew is finally back to full health after suffering a right hamstring strain on April 11. The veteran infielder will return to a utility role.
May 29 - 1:18 PM

According to Buster Olney of ESPN, "it appears Jose De Leon is on his way to the big leagues."

The Rays have yet to make an official announcement. Erasmo Ramirez was expected to make his scheduled start on Monday despite pitching in relief on Sunday, so perhaps something has changed. De Leon, acquired from the Dodgers in the Logan Forsythe deal, has a 2.16 ERA and 12/2 K/BB ratio in 8 1/3 innings through his first two starts in Triple-A this year. He got a late start on the season due to a flexor tendon issue.
May 29 - 1:06 PM

David Freese is not in Monday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

He'll take a seat against right-hander Randall Delgado. Josh Harrison will cover third base while Alen Hanson gets a start at second base.
May 29 - 1:04 PM

Cardinals optioned OF Randal Grichuk to High-A Palm Beach.

The move clears a spot for Jose Martinez's return from the disabled list. Grichuk has struggled with a .222/.276/.377 batting line across 46 games this season and the Cardinals want him to work on his strike zone discipline in the minors. Tommy Pham will get a chance at regular playing time, and deservedly so.
May 29 - 12:55 PM

The Giants are expected to call up infielder-outfielder Orlando Calixte on Monday.

No official announcement yet from the team. Calixte, 25, was batting .287/.331/.507 with eight home runs, 26 RBI, and 11 steals over 41 games this season in Triple-A. He has experience between the infield and outfield and will serve in a utility role.
May 29 - 12:53 PM

Greg Bird (ankle) was set to take live batting practice in Tampa on Monday.

The next step should be an official minor league rehab assignment. Bird has been sidelined since the start of May with a bone bruse in his ankle and was just 6-for-60 prior to hitting the disabled list. The Yankees might want him to receive extended at-bats in the minors before bringing him back.
