He'll take the place of Ken Roberts in Rockies bullpen who was placed on the disabled list on Saturday. The 29-year-old owns a 4.50 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 8/5 K/BB ratio in 14 innings on the year.

Devin Mesoraco (hip) suffered a setback in his recovery when he experienced continued pain while attempting to squat on Friday.
With this setback, he's unable to serve as the team's designated hitter over the weekend in Cleveland, but could still be available as a pinch hitter. It still looks as though the Reds will let him fight through the injury and avoid a trip to the disabled list.

Dan Uggla will get the start in his place and hit seventh against Cole Hamels and the Phillies. Look for Espinosa to be back in at his regular spot on Sunday.

It doesn't appear to be anything more than a routine day of rest for the veteran outfielder. Darrell Cecilani will start in his place in left field and hit seventh for the Mets.
Michael Brantley is not in the Indians starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Reds.
It's nothing more than a routine day of rest for the All-Star outfielder. Brantley is enjoying another terrific season for the Indians, slashing .319/.397/.511 with four homers and 26 RBI in 35 games. He'll be back in there on Sunday.
Stephen Vogt is not in the Athletics starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Rays.
