Yankees manager Joe Girardi revealed Tuesday that Mark Teixeira's absence from Monday's lineup was due to a minor left lat muscle issue.

It's something that's been bothering Teixeira for a few days. He returned to the lineup on Tuesday, though, and belted his 10th home run of the season. As long as the ailment doesn't get worse, it appears Teixeira will continue to play through it. "You deal with bumps and bruises all year," Teixeira said Tuesday. "Joe thought it was a good day for me to take off (Monday) and let it rest. It feels a little better today. The day off helped."

Jean Segura went hitless in three at-bats in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

Segura was hit on the helmet by a Pedro Strop fastball on Sunday, but he wound up missing just one game. The shortstop is batting .280/.314/.370 so far this season.
May 6 - 9:29 AM

Adam Eaton doubled and scored a run in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

Eaton missed the previous three contests while battling the flu. He's hitting a disappointing .195/.241/.268 this season.
May 6 - 9:27 AM

Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart confirmed that the club has interest in Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

"He's a player that we're going to talk a little bit more in-depth about," Stewart said Tuesday. "I have to see what our scouts are saying and talk to our internal guys, and if it makes sense then we'll make the next step." Saltalamacchia, who was officially released by the Marlins on Tuesday, makes a lot of sense as an upgrade over Tuffy Gosewisch. The D'Backs can get him cheaply now that his old $21 million contract is off the books.
May 6 - 9:25 AM

Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated Tuesday that the team might give Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) a week to improve before deciding whether to place him on the disabled list.

"You know, if you look back to what we’ve done with other situations where it’s not been a DL, you get to that midpoint, that seventh day, hopefully we would have much more clear information before the seven days arrives," Farrell said. "That’s usually been our marker when to put a guy on the DL or not." Ramirez had increased range of motion with his left shoulder on Tuesday, and an MRI showed no structural damage. Still, he's undoubtedly sore and the Red Sox might wind up shutting him down for a couple weeks.
May 6 - 9:17 AM

Mets transferred OF Cesar Puello from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears space on the 40-man roster for Johnny Monell. Puello remains sidelined with a stress fracture in his back.
May 6 - 8:36 AM

Mets purchased the contract of C Johnny Monell from Triple-A Las Vegas.

The Mets plan to carry three catchers for the time being. Monell is batting .397/.455/.638 with four homers at Las Vegas this season.
May 6 - 8:32 AM

Royals activated RHP Greg Holland from the 15-day disabled list.

Holland has been on the shelf since April 18 with a pectoral strain but threw a simulated game over the weekend and is ready to go. He'll slide back into his closer's role, pushing Wade Davis to the eighth inning.
