Yankees placed OF Curtis Granderson on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured fifth metacarpal of his left hand.
Granderson suffered when he was hit by a pitch in the fifth inning of Friday night’s game. It's a troubling development for the Yankees, who will be forced to go with Ichiro Suzuki and Brennan Boesch in his absence. Granderson is expected to miss a minimum of four weeks.
Yankees recalled OF Brennan Boesch from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Boesch will replace Curtis Grandeson on the active roster. He batted just .209 with a .244 on-base percentage through 20 games with the Yankees prior to being sent down earlier this month.
Orioles placed RHP Pedro Strop on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 24, with a lower back strain.
The move clears a spot on the 25-man roster for Steve Johnson. Strop has a 6.11 ERA with 14 walks over 17 2/3 innings with the Orioles.
Rubby De La Rosa (intercoastal) has resumed a throwing program.
De La Rosa was scratched from his start Tuesday with an intercoastal strain but is expected to make a quick return to the Triple-A Pawtucket rotation. The 23-year-old right-hander has a 3.65 ERA and 29/14 K/BB ratio over eight starts (25 innings) this season.
Miguel Sano leads all Florida State League third baseman in total chances, putouts and assists and ranks third in range factor.
There's been some concern over whether Sano can stay at third base in the long-term, but he's made enough progress that he won't be moving anytime soon. Through his first 44 games this season, Sano is batting .348/.442/.689 with 13 home runs and 37 RBI at the Twins' High-A affiliate.
Jordan Walden (shoulder) threw a bullpen session at Citi Field on Friday.
If Walden can avoid setbacks, he should be cleared for a rehab assignment and rejoin the Braves at some point next week. With Eric O'Flaherty out for the season, Walden is likely to return in a setup role with Luis Avilan.
A.J. Ellis doesn't expect to miss any time after he was involved in a home-plate collision with Jon Jay in the second inning of Friday's loss to the Cardinals.
Ellis remained in the game and says he isn't dealing any concussion-related symptoms. He plans to be in the lineup Saturday.
Matt Wieters is not in Saturday's lineup against the Blue Jays.
Wieters played all nine innings in Friday's win, so the Orioles will rest him in a day game following a night outing. He's batting just .192 (3-for-25) with one home run in his last seven games.
