Miguel Almonte will make his first major league start on Thursday at Yankee Stadium.

He's filling in for Nate Karns, who landed on the disabled list Wednesday with a right elbow injury. Almonte, 24, owns an impressive 1.86 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and 35/6 K/BB ratio over 29 innings this season with Double-A Northwest Arkansas. But the Yankees' offense presents a different kind of challenge.
May 24 - 2:23 PM

Royals placed RHP Nate Karns on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 21, with a right elbow injury.

Karns experienced a buildup of fluid around his right elbow during his last start Friday against the Twins. He's eligible to return next Wednesday and it's possible that he will only miss one turn in the Royals' rotation, though there isn't much clarity at this point. Miguel Almonte is starting in Karns' place on Thursday against the Yankees.

Royals activated OF Alex Gordon from the paternity leave list.

Gordon was excused from the club on Sunday to welcome a new member of his family. He returns Wednesday to a rough .175/.294/.212 batting line.
May 24 - 2:15 PM

Christian Yelich (hip) said Wednesday that he expects to avoid the disabled list.

Yelich exited Tuesday's game with right hip flexor tightness and he is not in the Marlins' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon in Oakland, but the issue is not believed to be serious. Marlins president Michael Hill echoed Yelich's optimism. Consider the center fielder day-to-day.
May 24 - 2:02 PM

Avisail Garcia (flu) is back in the White Sox starting lineup Wednesday afternoon in Arizona.

He'll start in right field and bat fifth against Diamondbacks right-hander Randall Delgado after missing Tuesday's game with a mild case of the flu. Garcia boasts a .971 OPS with eight home runs and 34 RBI over 43 games this season for Chicago.
May 24 - 1:40 PM

Athletics purchased the contract of RHP Zach Neal from Triple-A Nashville.

Neal will join the Oakland bullpen ahead of Wednesday afternoon's series finale against the Marlins. The right-hander was sporting a 3.89 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and 15/4 K/BB ratio in 34 2/3 innings this season at the Triple-A level.
May 24 - 1:37 PM

Athletics placed RHP Bobby Wahl on the 10-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain.

Wahl struggled in a two-inning appearance Tuesday night against the Marlins and apparently injured his throwing shoulder along the way. It's unclear how long he will be sidelined. Zach Neal has been called up from Triple-A Nashville in a corresponding roster move.
May 24 - 1:35 PM

Yonder Alonso (wrist) is out of the Athletics' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Marlins.

Alonso suffered a bruised right wrist Tuesday when he was hit by a pitch in the bottom of the sixth inning. X-rays turned up negative and he will probably be available off the bench for the A's in their series finale versus the Fish. Ryon Healy is starting at first base and Khris Davis is serving as Oakland's designated hitter on Wednesday.
