Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said in an interview on Astros Radio on Sunday that there's a "decent likelihood" outfield prospect Kyle Tucker will make his major league debut this summer.

It's not exactly groundbreaking stuff, as Luhnow is hardly committing to anything here. Still, Tucker is certainly looking worthy of a look-see by the big club with a .314/.382/.509 batting line, 10 home runs, 57 RBI and 13 stolen bases with Triple-A Fresno. He's been on fire in June with an absurd .415/.451/.634 batting line and has played all three outfield spots for Fresno this season. One of the top prospects in the game, Tucker is a worthy stash in redrafts even if it might be a while before we see him.

Rockies recalled RHP Yency Almonte from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Almonte was just sent down but makes a quick return with Bryan Shaw (calf) going down. He's allowed two unearned runs over two relief appearances during his time with the big club.
Jun 24 - 2:21 PM

Rockies placed RHP Bryan Shaw on the 10-day disabled list with a right calf strain.

Shaw has been a disaster this season with a 7.57 ERA over 41 appearances and now finds himself on the disabled list. It's unclear how much time he might miss.

Garrett Richards (hamstring) will throw a bullpen session Monday.

If that goes well, he'll throw off a mound again Wednesday and then hopefully make a rehab start next weekend. If Richards can progress without any setbacks, he should be in line to rejoin the Angels' rotation sometime next week.
Jun 24 - 1:57 PM

Padres recalled RHP Kazuhisa Makita from Triple-A El Paso.

Makita has posted a 6.55 ERA over 19 relief appearances this season. He won't be trusted in high-leverage situations.
Jun 24 - 1:49 PM

Padres optioned RHP Phil Maton to Triple-A El Paso.

Maton holds a 1.53 ERA over 17 appearances for the Padres this season, but he's been wild and was scored upon his last two times out.
Jun 24 - 1:48 PM

Padres purchased the contract of RHP Robert Stock from Triple-A El Paso.

Stock is a former catching prospect-turned-pitcher who was in independent ball a couple years ago. He surprised the Padres by touching 100 mph during spring training and carried it over into a nice start between Double- and Triple-A with a 1.95 ERA and 39/13 K/BB ratio over 32 1/3 innings. The 28-year-old will be making his major league debut when he gets into a game.
Jun 24 - 1:47 PM

Padres placed RHP Jordan Lyles on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 21, with right forearm tightness.

Lyles had to be scratched from a scheduled outing Saturday after his forearm tightened up on him during warm-ups. It's unclear at this point how long he might be out or who will replace him in the rotation.
