Giants recalled RHP Hunter Strickland from Triple-A Sacramento.

Strickland had technically been sent back down after Saturday's doubleheader, but he's now back to take Casey McGehee's spot on the roster. The hard thrower will serve a middle relief role.

Giants designated 3B Casey McGehee for assignment.

The Giants traded for McGehee over the winter in hopes that he'd pick up some of the offensive slack following the loss to Pablo Sandoval. It would be an understatement to say it didn't work out, as he hit just .200/.254/.282 and is now off the roster. McGehee has already told the Giants that he will accept the assignment to Triple-A Sacramento. Matt Duffy will be San Francisco's regular third baseman.

Matt Holliday was scratched from Sunday's lineup with a left arm contusion.

Holliday was hit on the arm by a pitch during Saturday's game and evidently is still sore. Pete Kozma entered the lineup at shortstop in Holliday's place, with Jhonny Peralta sliding into the designated hitter spot and Mark Reynolds moving to left field.
May 24 - 2:08 PM

Steven Souza left Sunday's game versus the Athletics with a left wrist injury.

Souza initially hurt the wrist on a collision at home plate with Stephen Vogt, and he then aggravated it later on a swing. The A's should have more on his status later Sunday.
May 24 - 2:05 PM

Marco Gonzales will travel to St. Louis to be examined after feeling renewed tightness around his left pectoral muscle while playing catch Saturday.

It was reported previously that Gonzales would be scratched from Monday's outing at Triple-A Memphis, and now we have a few more details. The Cardinals are expected to have more on the left-hander's status Wednesday.

Brandon Crawford is not in the Giants' lineup Sunday.

Crawford played all 18 innings of Saturday's doubleheader, so it's no surprise he's sitting this one out. Joaquin Arias is filling in at shortstop.
May 24 - 1:47 PM

Red Sox placed RHP Anthony Varvaro on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 29, with a torn right flexor tendon.

This is an interesting one. Varvaro was claimed off waivers by the Cubs early this month after the Red Sox designated him for assignment. Chicago eventually removed him from their 40-man roster, as well, but he's now back in Boston because it's been discovered he suffered the elbow injury while with the Red Sox. Varvaro isn't expected to return this season, but at least he'll draw a major league paycheck now.
May 24 - 1:45 PM

Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Dodgers and Athletics discussed a trade involving Jesse Chavez over the offseason.

They could wind up revisiting the talks, as the A's have baseball's worst record and the Dodgers are in need of rotation help following season-ending injuries to Brandon McCarthy (elbow) and Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder). Chavez began the season in Oakland's bullpen but joined the rotation late last month and has posted a 2.89 ERA and 41/13 K/BB ratio over 43 2/3 innings. The Dodgers are also known to have engaged in trade discussions with the Phillies over the winter regarding Cole Hamels, so it's possible they'll try to reel in a bigger fish than Chavez.
