Michael Cuddyer is out of the Mets' starting lineup on Wednesday with stiffness in his neck.
Darrell Ceciliani will start in left field and and bat sixth Wednesday night against the Padres. Cuddyer is day-to-day for now. It doesn't sound like a major issue.
Reds released 1B/OF Donald Lutz.
Lutz underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery in early May. He'll rehab as a free agent.
Reds purchased the contract of INF Ivan DeJesus Jr. from Triple-A Louisville.
The 28-year-old was batting .303/.378/.384 in 50 games this season for Louisville. De Jesus is capable of playing all around the infield and will likely do just that in a part-time role with the big-league Reds.
Reds placed OF Marlon Byrd on the 15-day disabled list with a fracture in his right wrist.
Byrd suffered the injury Tuesday when he was struck by a pitch. He's had previous fractures in the same area and the Reds are still trying to figure out how much time he will miss. Brennan Boesch and Skip Schumaker will likely share playing time in left field.
Red Sox transferred RHP Brandon Workman from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.
The move clears a 40-man roster spot for outfielder Alejandro De Aza, who was acquired from the Orioles on Wednesday. Workman is trying to rehab a torn right elbow ligament. He began a throwing program in late May.
Red Sox acquired OF Alejandro De Aza and cash considerations from the Orioles for RHP Joe Gunkel.
De Aza was designated for assignment by the O's last week after opening the season with a rough .214/.277/.359 batting line in 30 games. He seems doubtful to get much playing time in the crowded Boston outfield. Baltimore was paying him $5 million this season.
Orioles acquired RHP Joe Gunkel from the Red Sox for OF Alejandro De Aza and cash considerations.
Gunkel had registered a decent 2.90 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and 44/12 K/BB ratio in 40 1/3 innings this season between High-A Salem and Double-A Portland. The 23-year-old right-hander is a pretty nice get for the O's considering they had designated De Aza for assignment.
Jordan Lyles needs season-ending surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left big toe.
The procedure -- basically a Tommy John surgery for the toe -- is scheduled for June 10 in Denver. Lyles, 24, finishes the 2015 season with a 2-5 record, 5.14 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, and 30/19 K/BB ratio in 49 innings. Chris Rusin looks like the primary candidate to replace him in the Rockies' starting rotation.
