Giants purchased the contract of C Andrew Susac from Triple-A Fresno.
It's the first time that the 24-year-old backstop has been summoned to the big leagues. In 63 games at Fresno, he's hitting .268/.379/.451 with 10 homers and 32 RBI. He'll serve as the backup to Buster Posey while Hector Sanchez recovers from post-concussion symptoms.
Giants placed C Hector Sanchez on the 7-day concussion disabled list.
Sanchez was struck in the mask by a foul ball which forced him to leave Friday's game against the Dodgers. The hope is that he'll be ready to rejoin the team in a week after his symptoms subside.
Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) is expected to miss 6-8 weeks.
While the team could look to add a second baseman, they'll roll in the interim with a combination of Danny Espinosa and Zach Walters with Anthony Rendon sliding over to cover third base.
Manny Machado (back) has returned to the Orioles starting lineup on Saturday.
He's manning his regular position defensively and hitting seventh for the Orioles against Chris Young and the Mariners. He missed the previous four games due to pain in his lower back.
Mike Zunino is not in the Mariners lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Orioles.
It's simply a day of rest for the young backstop being a day game after a night game. Jesus Sucre will draw the start in his place and hit ninth against opposing hurler Bud Norris.
Cubs recalled RHP Blake Parker from Triple-A Iowa.
He'll take the place of Neil Ramirez in the Cubs bullpen. The Cubs needed another arm that was capable of working multiple innings, and Parker fits the bill. He owns a 9.53 ERA, 1.94 WHIP and 3/2 K/BB ratio over his 5 2/3 innings with the club this season.
Cubs optioned RHP Neil Ramirez to Triple-A Iowa.
In a bit of a head-scratching move, the Cubs demote their best reliever to Triple-A. They want to play things cautiously with the workload that the young right-hander shoulders this season, but the 25-year-old has been outstanding with a 0.96 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 36/10 K/BB ratio over his 28 innings of work.
Mets purchased the contract of RHP Buddy Carlyle from Triple-A Las Vegas.
Carlyle was sent outright to Triple-A earlier in the week, but finds himself quickly back with the Mets. The 36-year-old hurler owns a 1.29 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 7/3 K/BB ratio over seven innings with the Mets this season. He'll function in middle relief.
