Zack Cozart (knee) is not expected to miss much time.
Cozart gave the Reds a bit of a scare when he was forced to exit Sunday's game against the Pirates with an injury to his surgically-repaired right knee, but he's merely dealing with some tendinitis and should be fine. He could play on Monday, but the Reds are understandably being cautious with him. Consider him day-to-day.
Homer Bailey (elbow) said Monday that he expects to be shut down for 5-7 days.
Bailey got roughed up in his most recent minor league rehab start last Tuesday and it was revealed on Sunday that he suffered a slight setback. It's not believed to be serious, so the Reds are hoping that a few days of rest will get him back on track. Bailey was previously expected to rejoin the Reds by mid-May, but his timetable is up in the air right now.
Braves purchased the contract of INF Reid Brignac from Triple-A Gwinnett.
This will be Brignac's sixth major league team. He's a .219/.266/.310 hitter in 922 plate appearances.
Braves purchased the contract of INF Chase d'Arnaud from Triple-A Gwinnett.
The 29-year-old infielder was hitting just .255/.300/.372 at Triple-A. He may get some playing time for the battered, rebuilding Braves, but it's doubtful d'Arnaud will be able to hold any kind of fantasy relevance.
Braves optioned INF Jace Peterson to Triple-A Gwinnett.
Peterson was batting .182/.260/.205 in 50 plate appearances this season at the major league level. The former supplemental first-round draft pick has posted good numbers in the minors, but it just hasn't translated.
Braves designated OF Drew Stubbs for assignment.
Stubbs slashed .237/.310/.316 across 42 plate appearances with the Braves. He can play all three outfield spots and still has good speed, so there should be some interest from other teams on the waiver wire.
Tigers RHP prospect Beau Burrows earned his first win of 2016 by allowing just two hits over 5 2/3 scoreless innings for Low-A West Michigan.
He finished with two strikeouts and one walk. Burrows lowered his ERA from 3.29 to 2.33 while throwing 52 of his season-high 81 pitches for strikes. He now owns the Midwest League's third-lowest WHIP at 0.72. Burrows has allowed just one run across 15 2/3 innings over his last three outings. The 19-year-old was Detroit's first-round pick in 2015.
Rangers RHP prospect Luis Ortiz fanned six hitters over six scoreless innings Sunday in a win for High-A High Desert.
It was the longest outing of his career. Ortiz had been winless in his previous three appearances before Sunday's victory. The 20-year-old has only issued three walks in 20 innings this season. He's logged 22 strikeouts over that same span. The 2014 first-round pick rolled to a stellar 1.80 ERA in 13 starts for Low-A Hickory in 2015.
