Cardinals recalled OF Stephen Piscotty from Triple-A Memphis.

Piscotty will be the team's 26th man for Sunday's game in Williamsport, PA, but he could potentially stick around after that. He hit four home runs and posted a 1.202 OPS over eight games for Memphis after being demoted earlier this month. Randal Grichuk is hitting .372/.400/.674 over his last 11 games, so the Cards seem unlikely to bench him right now even if Piscotty does stick with the big club.

Brock Stewart will be recalled to start Tuesday versus the Dodgers in place of Yu Darvish (back).

It will only be a spot start, as Darvish is due back next Sunday. Stewart has posted a 1.64 ERA over nine appearances -- two starts -- for the Dodgers this season and isn't a bad deep-league streaming option.

Jayson Werth (foot) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse on Monday.

Werth has been on the disabled list since early June with a bad bone bruise in his left foot, but he appears to have finally turned a corner with his recovery and is ready for game action. It's unclear how many rehab games he'll require given that he's been out so long, but a return before the end of August is possible. The Nationals could use him given how banged up their outfield is.
Aug 20 - 9:03 AM

Mets activated LHP Tommy Milone from the 60-day disabled list.

Milone missed the last three months with a sprained knee. He'll operate in long relief for now but could get some starts down the stretch.

Nick Ahmed (hand) went 0-for-2 with a walk in his first rehab game with the Diamondbacks' Arizona League affiliate on Saturday.

Ahmed is working his way back from a fractured right hand, which he suffered back in late June. Ketel Marte has played well at shortstop with both Ahmed and Chris Owings (finger) out, but he could slide over to second base when Ahmed returns.
Aug 20 - 8:31 AM

Blue Jays sent C Michael Ohlman outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

Ohlman cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and has decided to remain in the organization. He's gotten a cup of coffee in the majors this season and hit .222/.343/.418 with 12 homers at Buffalo.
Aug 20 - 8:16 AM

Angels signed RHP Fernando Salas to a minor league contract.

Salas was released by the Mets last week after posting a 6.00 ERA over 48 appearances. The veteran reliever had some successful years in Anaheim and is worth a shot on a minor league deal.
Aug 20 - 8:14 AM

Chris Beck (shoulder) allowed three runs over two relief innings against the Rangers on Saturday in his return to action.

Beck had to leave an appearance Thursday after being hit on the pitching shoulder with a line drive, but he'll be fine. What isn't fine is his ERA, which now sits at an even 6.00 after Beck was scored upon for the 12th time in 17 appearances since the beginning of July.
