Rays manager Kevin Cash said Monday that Logan Forsythe will function as the regular first baseman with James Loney (finger) sidelined.
This will open things up for Nick Franklin to get more playing time at second base. Rene Rivera, Jacob Elmore, and Tim Beckham could also see some reps at first base, but Forsythe should get most of the playing time. Loney is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.
Brewers recalled RHP David Goforth from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
He'll replace the injured Wily Peralta (oblique) on the active roster. Goforth, 26, had a 3.43 ERA and 18/11 K/BB ratio over 21 innings this season in Triple-A. He'll pitch in middle relief.
Collin Cowgill (hand) served as a pinch-runner Monday against the Padres and scored the winning run.
Cowgill was scratched from Sunday's lineup after he felt pain in his top hand while swinging in batting practice. It's unclear when he'll be ready to return to the lineup, but that the Angels were willing to use him as a pinch-runner indicates that it might not be long.
Billy Hamilton (shoulder, wrist) went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in his return to the lineup Monday.
Hamilton sat out Sunday after banging his shoulder and wrist on a slide into second base on Saturday, but one day of rest was enough. It's worth noting that he was moved from eighth to ninth in the order on Monday, which Reds manager Bryan Price is hopeful will allow him to take more advantage of his speed. Look him him to stick there, at least for the short-term.
Brian McCann (foot) blasted a three-run homer, drew two walks, and scored twice in Monday's blowout win over the Royals.
McCann left Sunday's game with cramping in his right foot and calf, but it was never a major concern. The 31-year-old backstop has driven in seven runs over his last four games and is now batting .235/.299/.404 with five home runs and 28 RBI on the year.
Angels optioned 1B/DH C.J. Cron to Triple-A Salt Lake.
Cron's playing time had been dwindling and he's hit just .204/.225/.276 for the season with an ugly 23/2 K/BB ratio. The Halos will make a corresponding move prior to Tuesday's game.
Tyson Ross took a no-decision after allowing three runs (two earned) in six innings as the Padres lost 4-3 to the Angels on Monday.
Ross was fortunate to only allow the three runs as he gave up 10 hits in the outing along with a walk. The Angels also stole three bases off of him and catcher Derek Norris. Ross used seven strikeouts to limit runner advancement. The young right-hander has pitched well, but not at the level that led to an All-Star bid in 2014. He has a 3.84 ERA, a 1.50 WHIP, and a 69/30 K/BB ratio in 58 2/3 innings. Ross will face the Pirates at home in his next outing.
Jered Weaver got a no-decision on Monday, holding the Padres to one run in 6 2/3 innings of work.
Weaver was working on a shutout, but allowed the tying run to get into scoring position in the seventh inning before he was pulled. Reliever Jose Alvarez allowed Weaver's runner to score plus two of his own, ruining Weaver's bid for a win. Weaver allowed six hits and a walk while striking out seven. He has really turned things around over his last four starts, lowering his ERA to 4.06 with a 1.15 WHIP, and a 35/10 K/BB ratio in 64 1/3 innings. Weaver will face the Tigers at home next weekend.
