Cardinals recalled RHP Mitchell Boggs from Triple-A Memphis.
Boggs struggled mightily after being named the Cardinals' closer at the start of the 2013 season and was optioned to Memphis on May 3 with a 12.66 ERA. He wasn't exactly flawless during his time on the farm and will probably be limited to low-leverage situations for a while. Edward Mujica's job is obviously safe.
Cardinals placed LHP Jaime Garcia on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder strain.
Garcia has been dealing with shoulder issues for over a year and could be out for an extended period of time. The Cardinals are calling up reliever Mitchell Boggs on Saturday to fill the vacant roster spot but will have to add a new starting pitcher soon. Maybe 2012 first-rounder Michael Wacha will get a chance.
Rockies recalled RHP Tyler Chatwood from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Chatwood will make a spot start on Saturday night against the Giants. He has posted decent numbers this year at the Triple-A level but is not a great fantasy bet.
Rockies optioned RHP Rob Scahill to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Scahill was only up for two days this time around. He will probably be back and forth all season long.
Ian Kinsler (ribs) is out of the Rangers' starting lineup again on Saturday evening.
Kinsler was hit in the ribs by a throw Tuesday while stealing second base and aggravated his contusion Thursday during an at-bat. He is considered day-to-day.
Ike Davis was told Saturday by Mets general manger Sandy Alderson that a demotion is not imminent.
ESPN New York reported Saturday morning that there were intensifying internal discussions about sending the struggling first baseman to Triple-A, but Davis got the vote of confidence on Saturday afternoon directly from the man who would make that decision. Davis estimated that he has about a month to turn it around.
Mark Reynolds went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, an RBI single and a walk-off fielder's choice in Saturday's win over the Mariners.
Reynolds drove in three runs on the day. The fielder's choice came with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth, as catcher Jesus Montero was unable to keep his foot on home plate on a throw from shortstop Brendan Ryan. Reynolds has been one of the AL's most productive hitters thus far, batting .268/.354/.580 through 40 games. He's tied with the Yankees' Robinson Cano for the American League lead with 12 homers.
Chris Perez blew his second save of the season Saturday against the Mariners.
Perez entered the top of the ninth with a 4-2 lead, but he coughed it up after giving up back-to-back solo homers to Raul Ibanez and Justin Smoak with two outs. The Indians eventually won the game on a fielder's choice in the bottom of the ninth, so Perez actually ended up with the victory. See, it wasn't all bad for Perez owners. The 27-year-old right-hander recently dealt with some shoulder soreness and has shown diminished velocity on his fastball this season, but he owns a 1.80 ERA and 16/5 K/BB ratio over 15 innings. Vinnie Pestano just returned from an elbow injury, so there's no immediate threat to his job.
