Blue Jays recalled RHP Ryan Tepera from Triple-A Buffalo.
He's taking Drew Storen's spot in the bullpen. Tepera holds a 5.79 ERA over five relief appearances with the Jays this season.
Blue Jays designated RHP Drew Storen for assignment.
What a disaster of a season it's been for Storen, who has posted a 6.21 ERA over 38 appearances with the Jays. His velocity has also been down a bit, although he's struck out a batter per inning. Storen will almost surely clear waivers given his $8.375 million salary, although it's possible the Jays will be able to work out a trade.
Bryce Harper is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.
It's a rare day off for the slugger. Chris Heisey is handling right field in his place. The Nats also have Michael Taylor in center field and Trea Turner in the leadoff spot, as Ben Revere is on the bench.
ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Pirates are "among the teams evaluating" Matt Moore and Jake Odorizzi.
Tyler Glasnow (shoulder) and Chad Kuhl (biceps) both went down with injuries Saturday, which is surely related to the Pirates being in the market for a starter. They'll have some competition, as Moore and Odorizzi are both hot commodities, especially with it being a relatively light market for starting pitching.
Pirates recalled RHP A.J. Schugel from Triple-A Indianapolis.
Schugel holds a 3.94 ERA and 41/13 K/BB ratio over 48 relief innings this season. He'll be used in the middle of games.
Pirates placed RHP Tyler Glasnow on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury.
Glasnow departed Saturday's start against the Phillies with a sore shoulder. It's unclear at this point whether he might be dealing with any structural issues, but obviously the Pirates don't want to take any chances here. The club could offer more on a potential timetable for Glasnow later Sunday.
Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News was told by a Mets source that Lucas Duda (back) likely wouldn't return "until late August at best."
Duda has resumed running, swinging and throwing as he works his way back from a stress fracture in his back, although he's only taken dry swings to this point. While things appear to be on track, he obviously has a ways to go. "I think it’s a progression. I just started hitting today," Duda said. "We are progressing on the right track, so I will take it."
Twins pitching prospect Nick Burdi (elbow) is unlikely to pitch in another game this season.
Burdi has been limited to just three appearances this season due to a bone bruise near his right elbow that he suffered at the end of spring training. He's rehabbing at the club's spring training complex and could resuming a throwing program soon, but with just over a month left in the minor league season he's likely to run out of time. Burdi is a potential closer candidate for the Twins assuming he can get healthy, but he won't debut until at least 2017 now.
