Rangers recalled LHP Alex Claudio from Triple-A Round Rock.

He's taking Tanner Scheppers' spot in the bullpen. Claudio posted a 2.92 ERA over 15 relief appearances for the Rangers last season.
Apr 27 - 5:58 PM

Rangers optioned RHP Tanner Scheppers to Triple-A Round Rock.

Scheppers returned from the disabled list barely over a week ago and has now been sent out after allowing five runs over four relief innings. He'll get another chance later this season.
Apr 27 - 5:56 PM

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg indicated Monday that it's possible Domonic Brown (Achilles) could be sent to Triple-A Lehigh Valley once activated from the disabled list on Wednesday.

"I don't know that he's ready (to face major league pitching)," Sandberg said of Brown, who is hitting just .188/.298/.292 on his rehab assignment. The Phillies must do something with the outfielder, as his rehab clock runs out after Tuesday. It's hard to believe they wouldn't think Brown is a better option than Jeff Francoeur in right field, but it wouldn't be the first time Philly has made an odd decision.

Brian Duensing (intercostal) threw a bullpen session Monday with no issues.

He'll next throw a simulated game on Thursday. Assuming he gets through that without any problems, Duensing will be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on Saturday.
Apr 27 - 5:49 PM

Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Monday that Marco Gonzales (shoulder/pectoral) will resume throwing in 4-5 days.

Gonzales was placed on Triple-A Memphis' disabled list late last week with soreness in his left pectoral/shoulder. Assuming all goes well from here on out, he should be ready to take Adam Wainwright's (Achilles) spot in the rotation before long. The Cards will go with either Tyler Lyons or Tim Cooney in the meantime.
Apr 27 - 5:46 PM

Adam Wainwright will undergo season-ending surgery on Thursday after an MRI confirmed that he suffered a torn left Achilles tendon on Saturday.

The operation carries a 9-12 month rehab schedule, so it sounds like it's possible he might not be ready for the start of the 2016 season. Wainwright, who will turn 34 in August, has three years remaining on his contract after 2015. The Cardinals will go with either Tyler Lyons or Tim Cooney as his replacement in the rotation for now, but Marco Gonzales (shoulder/pectoral) is expected back soon.
Apr 27 - 5:39 PM

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Diamondbacks are having internal discussions about whether to pursue Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe says a total of five teams have expressed interest in Salty and that Marlins general manager Dan Jennings expects to trade the catcher. ESPN's Jerry Crasnick adds that, in addition to the D'Backs, the Red Sox, Indians and Mariners are also possible landing spots for Salty. Arizona would be an ideal landing spot for him, as he'd be in line to play regularly and would be in a hitter's park.
Apr 27 - 5:37 PM

Casey Janssen (shoulder) threw live batting practice on Monday.

The next step is a simulated game on Thursday. It's not clear whether the Nationals will ask Janssen to go out on a rehab assignment before being activated, but it appears he'll be back before long.
