Braves recalled LHP Ian Thomas from Triple-A Gwinnett.
Thomas held a 2.70 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 3/3 K/BB ratio over his four innings of relief work earlier this season with the big club. He'll be used in middle relief.
Braves optioned INF/OF Adonis Garcia to Triple-A Gwinnett.
Garcia had just two plate appearances while up with the big club, striking out in one and drawing a walk in the other. Ian Thomas has replaced him on the roster.
Danny Duffy's (shoulder) next scheduled start has been pushed back from Saturday to Tuesday.
Duffy is dealing with some stiffness in his pitching shoulder, which could at least partly explain his erratic performance of late. It doesn't appear to be something the Royals are overly concerned with since they're merely pushing him back a few days, but anytime the shoulder is involved there's some worry. Edinson Volquez and Yordano Ventura will move up a day but will be on regular rest.
Dillon Gee (groin) will rejoin the Mets on Sunday in Pittsburgh.
Manager Terry Collins indicated that Gee will rejoin the rotation but also that Noah Syndergaard will stick around, so it sounds like the club is poised to go with a six-man rotation at least for a while. Gee posted a 3.86 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over five starts before going on the disabled list earlier this month with a groin injury.
Ryan Brett (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Charlotte on Sunday.
Brett has been out for nearly a month with a subluxation of the left shoulder. He'll probably be sent down to Triple-A Durham once ready.
C.J. Riefenhauser (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Charlotte on Sunday.
Riefenhauser has been out the last month with a shoulder injury. He could be optioned to Triple-A once ready.
Victor Martinez will begin rehabbing his ailing left knee on Friday.
The Tigers put V-Mart on the disabled list earlier this week after he had another setback with his surgically-repaired knee. The Tigers haven't set a timetable for his return, but they'll proceed cautiously.
Charlie Morton (hip) will be activated from the disabled list to start on Monday against the Marlins.
Morton has been healthy for a while, but the Pirates wanted him to work on his mechanics as he made his way back from hip surgery. He appears to have accomplished that with a 1.33 ERA and 22 strikeouts over 20 1/3 innings during a rehab assignment. Vance Worley has been moved to the Pirates' bullpen.
