Rangers activated OF Delino DeShields from the 15-day disabled list.
DeShields is back from his hamstring injury after completing a six-game rehab assignment. With Josh Hamilton's (groin) status up in the air, he could wind up playing a lot in left field.
Starling Marte exited Sunday's game against the Indians with discomfort in his left side.
The Pirates don't want to provide a definitive diagnosis until Marte is re-evaluated on Monday. The fear, obviously, is that he's suffered a strained oblique, which would surely require a trip to the disabled list. More will be known about Marte on Monday.
White Sox RHP prospect Yency Almonte lost a no-hitter with two outs in the ninth inning Saturday in a win for Low-A Annapolis.
He finished with 11 groundouts and six strikeouts. Saturday was the longest outing of his career. The 21-year-old right-hander has now won seven of his last nine starts with a 2.78 ERA. Almonte was acquired from the Angels in February in the deal that sent Gordon Beckham to Los Angeles.
Rays RHP prospect Jacob Faria tossed seven hitless innings Saturday in a win for Double-A Montgomery.
Jared Mortensen took over for Faria in the eighth inning and lost the no-hitter five pitches later. Faria's 14 strikeouts were a career-high. It also matched the team record set by Mitch Talbot in 2006. Saturday marked the right-hander's second start in Double-A after beginning the year with High-A Charlotte. Faria is now 11-1 with a 1.34 ERA in 14 appearances.
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.
