Tigers recalled RHP Michael Fulmer from Triple-A Toledo.
Fulmer will make his major league debut on Friday against the Twins. He's posted a 4.11 ERA and 20/5 K/BB ratio across 15 1/3 innings for Toledo this season and the top prospect isn't a bad streaming option. Fulmer is replacing Shane Greene (blister) and isn't a given to stick around long.
Tigers placed RHP Shane Greene on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 25, with a middle finger blister.
The blister didn't heal fast enough for Greene to make his scheduled start this weekend, so the Tigers are playing it safe. He should be back soon. Michael Fulmer is taking Greene's rotation spot.
Brewers recalled RHP David Goforth from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Goforth posted a 4.35 ERA over his first eight relief appearances with Colorado Springs. He'll work in the middle innings.
Brewers optioned RHP Taylor Jungmann to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Jungmann pitched pretty well in 21 starts for the Brewers last season and started their third game of the season this year. However, he's put up a 9.15 ERA and 13/13 K/BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings through five outings this season, so it's not a surprise a change was made. The Brewers haven't announced who will take Jungmann's rotation spot.
Michael Foltynewicz is expected to start for the Braves on Monday versus the Mets.
He's expected to take the rotation spot of Bud Norris, who is headed to the bullpen. Tyrell Jenkins was also mentioned as a possibility to take Norris' spot, but it appears the duty will fall to Foltynewicz. The hard-throwing right-hander holds a 2.05 ERA and 20/14 K/BB ratio across 22 frames for Triple-A Gwinnett this season. He'll likely provide strikeouts but not much else for fantasy owners.
Phillies optioned RHP Luis Garcia to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Garcia was only up for a few days, throwing one scoreless inning with the big club. He should get another shot with Philly at some point this season.
Phillies recalled LHP Adam Morgan from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Morgan will start on Friday against Cleveland, taking the rotation spot of Charlie Morton (hamstring). The left-hander held a 3.57 ERA in his first three starts for Lehigh Valley but isn't a strong fantasy option.
The Pirates have extended the contracts of their entire coaching staff through 2017.
This does not include manager Clint Hurdle, who was already under contract through 2017 with a club option for 2018. It does, however, including pitching coach Ray Searage, who is widely viewed as one of the best pitching coaches in the game. It's obviously good news for the Pirates' hurlers.
