Travis Ishikawa (back) has resumed his rehab assignment with High-A San Jose.

Ishikawa had a setback with his back a couple weeks ago, but he's ready to roll again. Assuming he doesn't have any other bumps in the road, he should rejoin the Giants relatively soon.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that Justin Verlander's (triceps) next MRI is scheduled for Tuesday.

It's the third MRI he's had, as the Tigers want to see how much fluid and inflammation is remaining in his right triceps. The hope is that there's enough improvement to where Verlander can resume a throwing program. Even if that's the case, he's not expected to be back this month.
May 4 - 5:49 PM

Casey Fien (shoulder) will resume a throwing program on Thursday.

Fien has been shut down for the last week with a posterior deltoid issue behind his right shoulder. It sounds like he'll have a shot to return when he's eligible or shortly after.

Adam Ottavino revealed Monday that he's likely to have Tommy John surgery to repair a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

The warning alarm was sounded when it was reported last Friday that Ottavino was seeking multiple opinions on his elbow, and the reliever's worst fears have come true. It's brutal news for Ottavino, as he had taken over the Rockies' closer role and appeared poised for a breakthrough season. He'll now be sidelined likely until around midseason next year. John Axford has assumed the ninth inning role for the Rox, although it's possible LaTroy Hawkins could eventually get another shot when he returns from a biceps injury.

Alex Cobb (forearm) has been shut down from throwing after experiencing "a little bit of a setback," according to Rays manager Kevin Cash.

Cobb will be examined by the team's doctor, although it's unclear if an MRI is planned. More should be known about how big of a setback this could be after the doctor's visit, but obviously we don't figure to see Cobb for a while now. The right-hander had resumed throwing off a mound a little over a week ago as he worked his way back from right forearm tendinitis.

Angels recalled C Carlos Perez from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Perez was off to a blazing start at the plate at Salt Lake, batting .361/.418/.556 with a couple homers. He'll be Chris Iannetta's backup, but with Iannetta really struggling we could see Perez receive a decent numbers of starts.
May 4 - 5:19 PM

Angels designated C Drew Butera for assignment.

Butera batted just .190/.190/.190 over 10 games. The Halos have decided to carry Carlos Perez as Chris Iannetta's backup instead.
May 4 - 5:16 PM

Dodgers transferred LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears space on the 40-man roster for Matt West. Ryu wasn't going to return until at least late May, anyway, so this doesn't change his timetable. He's expected to throw live batting practice at some point this week.
