Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) could be activated ahead of Thursday night's game against the Padres.

May 25 - 3:25 PM

Rio Ruiz went 3-for-4 with an RBI in the loss to the Pirates on Thursday.

Ruiz is 5-for-9 the last two days, giving him a .320 average in eight games since he was called up when Freddie Freeman went on the DL last week. He should be a better player than Adonis Garcia going forward if the Braves want to give him the chance to keep starting at third base. Garcia, though, seems to be just a few days away, and it remains likely that Ruiz will be sent down when he returns.
May 25 - 3:24 PM

Shin-Soo Choo is out of the Rangers' starting lineup Thursday versus the Red Sox.

Rougned Odor will take a turn at DH with the Red Sox starting left-hander Drew Pomeranz. Pete Kozma is at second base. Choo has a .695 career OPS versus lefties and an .893 career OPS against right-handers.
May 25 - 3:03 PM

Reds designated 1B/OF Peter O'Brien for assignment.

Cincinnati just claimed O'Brien off waivers nine days ago from the Royals. The 26-year-old has batted .168/.252/.304 with four home runs and 37 strikeouts in 32 games this season between Triple-A Omaha and Triple-A Louisville.
May 25 - 1:58 PM

Reds placed LHP Amir Garrett on the 10-day disabled list with right hip inflammation.

Garrett had surrendered 13 earned runs in nine innings (two starts) since returning from Triple-A Louisville last week. It's been a very up-and-down start to the season for the talented young left-hander. There is no current timetable for his return, though this doesn't sound like a serious injury.
May 25 - 1:56 PM

Reds claimed RHP Jake Buchanan off waivers from the Cubs.

Chicago designated Buchanan for assignment earlier this week after he put up a 4.75 ERA, 1.63 WHIP, and 29/19 K/BB ratio through 41 2/3 innings with Triple-A Iowa. He could actually get some starts in Cincinnati, but that speaks more to the sad state of the Reds' pitching staff than anything. Buchanan definitely shouldn't be trusted in standard fantasy leagues.
May 25 - 1:52 PM

Twins prospect Mitchell Garver went 3-for-4 with a homer on Wednesday for Triple-A Rochester.

The homer was Garver's third for the Red Wings this season. A ninth-round selection in 2013, Garver has been impressive this season, particularly with his approach as seen in his .400 on-base percentage. He's also no slouch with the glove, and he just might be the Twins catcher of the future. The upside isn't great, but in two catcher leagues, he might be serviceable.
May 25 - 1:47 PM

Athletics prospect Paul Blackburn hurled seven shutout innings on Wednesday for Triple-A Nashville.

Blackburn allowed five hits over those seven innings, walking two and striking out six. Acquired for Danny Valencia this offseason, Blackburn has three usable pitches, the best being an above-average curve. He's not going to miss a ton of bats, but he should throw enough strikes to pitch at the backend of a rotation. Expect to see him in Oakland before the end of the year.
