Danny Hultzen (shoulder) has begun playing catch.
Hultzen was shut down in late April with a left rotator cuff strain and general shoulder tendinitis. The Mariners are expected to take it very slowly with their prized pitching prospect. He had a cool 2.78 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 25/6 K/BB ratio through his first 22 2/3 innings (four starts) this season at Triple-A Tacoma and could reach the major leagues later this summer if he can get healthy.
Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Monday that Anthony Gose will not be an everyday player.
The talented 22-year-old outfielder was promoted from Triple-A Buffalo on Monday morning but isn't likely to hold much value in standard mixed fantasy leagues. Gibbons said Gose will "help out on defense" and as a pinch-runner. He will not make very many starts.
Rays optioned LHP Jeff Beliveau to Triple-A Durham.
Beliveau was up in the majors for only two days and did not make an appearance in a game. The 26-year-old left-hander was sporting a 4.35 ERA in 10 appearances at the Triple-A level at the time of his promotion.
David Freese needed stitches along the base of his right thumb after Sunday's win over the Brewers.
Freese suffered a small gash while applying a diving tag on Norichika Aoki's cleat at home plate. The Cardinals' third baseman does not expect to miss any playing time. He's finally starting to come alive offensively after a dreadful first month-plus and might make for a decent buy-low candidate in some fantasy formats.
Blue Jays recalled OF Anthony Gose from Triple-A Buffalo.
Gose batted .223/.303/.319 in 189 plate appearances last season with Toronto. The 22-year-old has good speed and some raw power, but he is not a polished enough hitter at this point to make a big impact in the majors. He can be ignored in most mixed formats.
Blue Jays optioned RHP Mickey Storey to Triple-A Buffalo.
Storey allowed three earned runs in 3 2/3 innings during his 10-day stint with Toronto. He'll be back eventually.
Sean Burnett reported no pain in his left forearm after playing catch on Sunday afternoon.
Burnett made his first minor league rehab appearance on Saturday and came out of it feeling fine. He is on track to return to the Angels' bullpen early this week.
Jered Weaver (elbow) is scheduled to pitch in a game at extended spring training on Wednesday.
Weaver was hoping to embark on a minor league rehab assignment, but the Angels want him to throw one more time in a controlled environment at their spring training complex in Arizona. He is still on track to return to the Anaheim rotation at some point in early June.
