Tigers placed RHP Alfredo Simon on the bereavement list.

Simon has returned to his native Dominican Republic to be with his father, who is ill. The Tigers aren't sure when Simon will be back, but he seems likely to be ready for his next start. Kyle Ryan will fill in Wednesday.

Nick Hundley is not in the Rockies' lineup Wednesday.

It's simply a routine day off. Michael McKenry is at catcher in Hundley's place.
May 27 - 10:12 AM

Carlos Ruiz is not in the Phillies' lineup Wednesday.

It's just a day of rest. Cameron Rupp is catching in Ruiz's place.
May 27 - 10:11 AM

Brandon Phillips (toe) remained out of the Reds' lineup Wednesday.

Phillips recently aggravated a turf toe issue that initially cropped up a couple weeks ago. He's day-to-day. Skip Schumaker is filling in at second base.
May 27 - 10:07 AM

Rays released RHP Grant Balfour.

Balfour exercised the opt-out deal in his contract that was agreed upon when he re-signed with the Rays at the beginning of this month. The veteran reliever struck out 11 while posting a 2.79 ERA over 9 2/3 innings for Triple-A Durham. He shouldn't have an issue catching on elsewhere quickly, though it remains to be seen whether he'll be able to land a major league contract.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Tuesday that he expects Ivan Nova (elbow) to begin a rehab assignment "pretty soon."

Nova is expected to throw about 70 pitches Wednesday or Thursday in an extended spring training game. His rehab assignment would figure to be pretty lengthy, so Nova is still multiple weeks away from a return. Still, the Yanks will be happy to have him as a rotation option relatively soon.
May 27 - 9:37 AM

Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup Wednesday.

As expected, he hasn't been catching back-to-back games as he eased back into things in his return from the disabled list. Roberto Perez is behind the dish in Gomes' place.
May 27 - 9:32 AM

Brandon Moss is not in the Indians' lineup Wednesday.

It's a rare day off versus a righty for Moss. David Murphy is starting in right field, while Nick Swisher is handling designated hitter duties.
