Indians manager Terry Francona said Nick Swisher (knees) will be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

Tyler Holt will be optioned to Triple-A Columbus to open a spot on the Indians' 25-man roster. Swisher missed all of April while rehabbing from dual knee surgeries. He batted just .208/.278/.331 with eight home runs and 42 RBI in 97 games last season for the Indians and the 34-year-old seems doubtful to carry significant value in standard fantasy leagues.

Astros prospect Domingo Santana blasted a pair of homers Sunday in a win for Triple-A Fresno.

Santana used Sunday's bounce-back effort to snap a 2-for-14 drought. The 22-year-old is batting a steady .286, though it's come with 29 strikeouts in 70 at-bats. This could be the start of something big as Santana's production is known to come in spurts. He already has two multi-home run games this season. Santana is MLB.com's 70th-ranked prospect.

Rule 5 Draft pick Logan Verrett cleared waivers and has been returned to the Mets.

Verrett was selected by the Orioles in December's Rule 5 Draft and then claimed off waivers by the Rangers in early April. Now he's back with the organization that made him a third-round pick in the 2011 MLB Amateur Draft. Verrett, 24, allowed seven runs -- six earned -- in nine innings of relief this season with Texas. He'll join the Mets' Triple-A affiliate in Las Vegas.

Ben Zobrist (knee) has begun playing catch.

Zobrist is already itching to get back, though he's not expected to be fully ready until sometime in early-to-mid June. He rode a stationary bike for 20 minutes the day after his April 28 arthroscopic knee surgery.
May 4 - 1:01 PM

Jarrod Parker (elbow) allowed three earned runs over 4 1/3 innings Sunday in a rehab start at Triple-A Nashville.

Parker walked one and struck out four. It was the third rehab outing for the 26-year-old right-hander, who underwent the second Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery of his career last March. He should become an option for the A's starting rotation later this month.

Jean Segura's CT scan turned up negative.

Segura got drilled in the helmet by a Pedro Strop fastball on Sunday afternoon and was shaken up after the game, but it seems he avoided a serious injury and might not even need a disabled list stint. There should be more on his status Monday evening. The 25-year-old shortstop is batting .289/.324/.381 with one home run and five stolen bases in 25 games this season.

Cardinals signed 1B Dan Johnson to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Memphis.

Johnson was released by the Reds in late April after managing just two hits in 40 plate appearances at Triple-A Louisville. The 35-year-old first baseman hasn't been an effective major leaguer since 2007.
May 4 - 12:02 PM

Craig Counsell has been officially named the Brewers' manager on a three-year contract.

Ron Roenicke was let go on Sunday night, but it sure seems like this change has been in the works for some time. Most teams would name a new manager and give him interim status, but the Brewers have gone ahead and committed three years to Counsell, who carries no previous managerial experience. Counsell played 16 seasons in the majors -- six for Milwaukee -- and had been working as a special assistant to Brewers GM Doug Melvin for the last four seasons. He's a graduate of Notre Dame.
