Pirates RHP prospect Jameson Taillon scattered two hits and one walk over seven shutout innings Tuesday in a no-decision for Triple-A Indianapolis.

He lowered his ERA from 1.54 to 1.19 while pushing his season strikeout total to 26. Taillon is now tied with Lehigh Valley's Zach Eflin for the International League lead in WHIP (0.76). The 24-year-old has handed out just three free passes in 30 1/3 innings this season. Finally healthy after spending all of last year recovering from Tommy John surgery, Taillon is poised to make his Pirates debut this summer.

Indians designated C Adam Moore for assignment.

Moore's stay in the majors only lasted a handful of days. He will probably make it through waivers.
May 4 - 1:11 PM

Indians acquired C Chris Gimenez from the Rangers for cash considerations.

Gimenez was designated for assignment by the Rangers on May 3. He'll take over as the Indians' backup catcher, with Adam Moore getting shipped out in a corresponding roster move. Gimenez, 33, is a .218/.303/.336 career hitter.

Dodgers director of player development Gabe Kapler announced Wednesday that Erisbel Arruebarrena has been suspended for the rest of the season "for repeated failure to comply with the terms of his contract."

This is the same thing the Dodgers tried to do last May, but a grievance was filed and the suspension was reduced to 30 days. It might be best if these two parties simply go their separate ways, though the Dodgers still owe Arruebarrena around $17.5 million. The 26-year-old infielder was signed out of Cuba in 2013 and has been a major disappointment both off and on the field. He was slashing .182/.224/.400 with four home runs and 21 strikeouts in 17 games this season at Double-A Tulsa.

Ben Revere (oblique) is expected to rejoin the Nationals on Thursday at Wrigley Field.

Revere played a full nine innings of center field Tuesday in his fifth minor league rehab game and came out of it feeling fine. He's been on the disabled list since suffering a strained oblique in the Nationals' regular-season opener. Michael Taylor and Jayson Werth are probably both looking at a reduction in playing time with Revere returning to starting center field duties.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Wednesday that he has increasing interest in free agent Tim Lincecum.

Lincecum is scheduled to throw a showcase for interested teams on Friday in Arizona, and over 20 major league clubs are expected to have a representative in attendance. Bochy and the Giants are viewing Lincecum as a potential long reliever. The two-time National League Cy Young Award winner probably prefers to start.

Garrett Richards "seems questionable" for his Friday start, per MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez.

Richards battled some dehydration this past weekend and did not throw his usual between-starts bullpen session on Tuesday or Wednesday. There should be a status update soon from the Angels. The 27-year-old right-hander holds a 2.34 ERA and 34 strikeouts in 34 2/3 innings this season and was supposed to open the Angels' weekend series against the visiting Rays.
May 4 - 12:08 PM

Joe Panik (groin) is doubtful to play until Saturday.

Panik is out of the Giants' starting lineup for the fifth straight game Wednesday against the Reds, though he was able to do some jogging and agility drills on Tuesday. If the second baseman doesn't make it back this weekend, the Giants will have to consider a disabled list stint (retroactive to April 30). Kelby Tomlinson is starting at second on Wednesday.
