Padres recalled LHP Tom Layne from Triple-A Tucson.
Layne, 28, had a 4.00 ERA and 13/12 K/BB ratio in 18 innings over 19 appearances this season in Triple-A. He'll operate in middle relief.
Jed Lowrie (foot) is out of the Athletics' lineup again Friday.
Lowrie hasn't played since he was hit in the right foot by Yu Darvish on Tuesday. X-rays came back negative, but he's still dealing with some soreness. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Mark Teixeira (wrist) expects to play rehab games with Double-A Trenton next Wednesday and Thursday.
Teixeira has participated in simulated games this week and will test himself in extended spring training on Saturday, Monday and Tuesday. He'll be reevaluated after his two rehab games with Trenton, but there's a chance that he could be activated from the disabled list late next week if all goes well. Teixeira has been sidelined since early March with a torn tendon sheath in his wrist.
Orioles released LHP Zach Braddock.
Braddock signed a minor league deal with the Orioles over the winter, but was on the disabled list with Triple-A Norfolk and never appeared in a game. The 25-year-old left-hander underwent surgery last July to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder.
Justin Maxwell (hand) expects to begin a minor league rehab assignment next Wednesday with Class A Quad Cities.
Maxwell, who fractured his left hand on month ago, took 20 swings in the cage on Friday without discomfort. He's likely looking at a return in early June.
P.J. Walters will start against the Tigers on Saturday.
That was the assumption already, but it's now official. Walters had a solid 3.31 ERA with 46 strikeouts over 54 1/3 innings this season with Triple-A Rochester, but he can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.
Andy Pettitte (trapezius) played catch Thursday and Friday and is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Saturday.
Pettitte was placed on the disabled list last week with a strained trapezius muscle, but he's currently throwing without any discomfort. The veteran left-hander expects to throw a simulated game rather than go out on a minor league rehab assignment. Either way, he should return around when he's first eligible on June 1.
Trevor Plouffe passed an imPACT concussion test on Thursday.
Plouffe took a knee to the head Tuesday night when he tried to break up a double play and was placed on the 7-day disabled list because of his initial wooziness. However, he has already done some cardio work and should return right around when he's first eligible.
