Sonny Gray (shoulder) threw off a mound with hitters standing in the box on Tuesday.

Gray said he felt "free and easy" during the workout. He'll throw a bullpen session Thursday and then the A's will reevaluate the situation. There's been talk of Gray returning when first eligible on June 6, but it might be best for him to make a minor league rehab start. Look for an update Thursday evening.
May 31 - 7:07 PM

Rich Hill (groin) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday.

If it goes well, he should be cleared to pitch this weekend against the Astros. Hill left his start Sunday versus the Tigers after suffering a mild groin strain. He went 6 1/3 strong innings in that outing and boasts a 2.25 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 74 strikeouts over 64 total innings this season.
May 31 - 7:03 PM

Braves recalled RHP Ryan Weber from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Weber will take over the bullpen spot left vacant by Jason Grilli, who was traded to the Blue Jays on Tuesday evening. Weber has allowed nine runs in 7 2/3 innings of relief this season at the major league level.
May 31 - 6:59 PM

Blue Jays acquired RHP Jason Grilli from the Braves for RHP Sean Ratcliffe.

Grilli has posted an ugly 5.29 ERA, 1.71 WHIP, and 23/13 K/BB ratio in 17 innings this season, but the Blue Jays apparently believe he has something left in the tank. The 39-year-old right-hander will presumably join up with the Jays on Wednesday in Toronto. He figures to pitch in low-leverage situations initially.
May 31 - 6:53 PM

Braves acquired RHP Sean Ratcliffe from the Blue Jays for RHP Jason Grilli.

Ratcliffe was an 18th-round pick of the Jays in 2013 and he owns a 4.91 ERA in 62 1/3 professional innings, all below High-A ball. The young right-hander (he turned 21 in April) is more a project than a prospect.
May 31 - 6:51 PM

Chase Whitley (elbow) worked in breaking balls Tuesday in a 35-pitch bullpen session.

It was his first time using those pitches since his Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last May. Whitley could become an option for the Rays in July.
May 31 - 6:47 PM

Alex Cobb (elbow) threw a 35-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday at Tropicana Field.

He worked in breaking balls for the first time since undergoing Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last May. Cobb is aiming to join the Rays' starting rotation at some point in July. He hasn't appeared in a game at the major league level since September 2014.
May 31 - 6:45 PM

Andrelton Simmons (thumb) took batting practice and fielded grounders on Tuesday.

Simmons resumed baseball activities last week and is now progressing quickly toward a minor league rehab assignment. Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register suspects the shortstop could be ready in three weeks. He was given a 6-8 week timetable when he landed on the disabled list May 10 with a UCL tear in his left thumb.
