Yasiel Puig is batting third for the first time in his major league career Thursday vs. the Giants.

The Dodgers are sitting multiple regulars in Thursday's series-finale with San Francisco, so Puig gets to move into prime RBI territory. The 23-year-old is batting .250/.340/.409 in 12 games played this season.
Apr 17 - 1:14 PM

Cardinals recalled RHP Jorge Rondon from Triple-A Memphis.

Rondon will pitch in mid-relief for the Cardinals. He had a 5.40 ERA in five innings this year at Memphis.
Apr 17 - 1:10 PM

Cardinals recalled RHP Eric Fornataro from Triple-A Memphis.

Fornataro was off to a nice start this year at Memphis, having rattled off five scoreless innings of relief. He will join the St. Louis bullpen on Thursday. His first appearance will be his major league debut.
Apr 17 - 1:08 PM

Cardinals optioned RHP Keith Butler to Triple-A Memphis.

Butler had allowed six earned runs in two innings of relief this season for the Cardinals. The 25-year-old right-hander should get another look later this summer.
Apr 17 - 1:06 PM

Cardinals placed RHP Joe Kelly on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Kelly suffered the injury Wednesday afternoon at Miller Park while trying to leg out a groundball to first base in the top of the fifth inning. He was sent back to St. Louis for an MRI, the results of which aren't yet available. Tyler Lyons appears likely to take his rotation spot next week against the Mets.
Apr 17 - 1:04 PM

Jason Bartlett (ankle) is set to begin a rehab assignment on Thursday with High-A Fort Myers.

Bartlett has been on the shelf since April 7 with a sprained left ankle. The Twins are expected to leave him on his minor league rehab assignment for a couple of weeks so that he can work on his swing. Bartlett batted just .093 with a .245 OPS during spring training.
Apr 17 - 12:58 PM

Dodgers shortstop prospect Corey Seager went 2-for-4 with a double and a stolen base on Wednesday night for High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

Seager is hitting .321/.381/.446 with five doubles, a triple, and four stolen bases over his first 14 games of the season. He hit just .160/.246/.320 in his 27-game introduction to the California League in 2013, so it's good to see that he is hitting well at the same level in 2014. While Seager has yet to hit a home run this season, he projects to have 15-20 home run power at his peak.
Apr 17 - 12:52 PM

Reds right-handed pitching prospect Ben Lively struck out 10 batters in six shutout innings on Wednesday at High-A Bakersfield, allowing just two hits.

Lively sports a 0.53 ERA, has struck out 23 batters, and has allowed just seven hits without surrendering a walk, leading to a 12.2 K/9, 0.412 WHIP, and a 3.7 H/9 through 17 innings. He looks like a mid-rotation starter for now, but if the 22-year-old keeps up his incredible season he could rocket up prospect lists.
