Sonny Gray (illness) has officially been cleared to rejoin the Athletics' rotation on Tuesday against the Yankees.
Gray missed one turn in the rotation and had another one pushed back after needing a brief stay in the hospital due to salmonella. He's back on track now, though, and will take the ball on Tuesday in New York. Chris Bassitt, who has filled in for Gray, will likely be sent down after Sunday's start.
Pirates claimed 1B/OF Travis Ishikawa off waivers from the Giants.
Ishikawa was actually the Pirates' Opening Day first baseman last season but didn't last with the club for long. The veteran has spent almost all of 2015 at Triple-A, batting .271/.342/.421 with four homers over 34 games. He'll give the Pirates a backup option at first base and the corner outfield spots.
Nationals recalled RHP Taylor Jordan from Triple-A Syracuse.
Jordan will be used in long relief for now but is an option to take Stephen Strasburg's (oblique) spot in the rotation eventually. He's allowed 10 runs over 10 2/3 innings in the majors this season.
Nationals placed RHP Stephen Strasburg on the 15-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.
Strasburg suffered the injury during Saturday's start. It's really a shame, as he had been looking terrific since returning from a trapezius injury a couple weeks ago. How long Strasburg will be sidelined isn't known at this point. The Nats haven't revealed who will replace him in the rotation, but an off day on Thursday means they can wait until after the All-Star break to make a decision.
Starling Marte left Sunday's game against the Indians with an apparent injury to his side.
Marte grabbed his side after a swing in the bottom of the fourth inning and eventually walked off the field after a conversation with the Pirates' trainer and manager Clint Hurdle. Obviously, the fear is that he might had strained his oblique, but the club should offer an update on Marte shortly.
Athletics sent 1B Nate Freiman outright to Triple-A Nashville.
He cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and will remain in the organization. Freiman has hit only .171/.225/.188 over 35 games this season for Nashville.
Blue Jays sent RHP Todd Redmond outright to Triple-A Buffalo.
It's the third time since Opening Day that he's been outrighted off the 40-man roster. Redmond could declare free agency if he wants, but he stuck around before and might do so again.
Jerry Blevins (forearm) has yet to be cleared to resume a throwing program.
Blevins has been sidelined since mid-April with a distal radius fracture of his left arm. Obviously, a timetable for his return won't become cleared until he's throwing again.
