Padres LHP prospect Adrian Morejon was scratched from his last start due to neck stiffness.

Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports that it's not considered a serious injury, and it's understandable that the Padres are being careful with one of their best prospects in the system. In seven starts for High-A Lake Elsinore he's registered a 3.67 ERA and he's struck out 36 hitters over his 34 1/3 innings.

Mitch Haniger (wrist) is back in the lineup and hitting third against the Athletics on Thursday.

Haniger ended up only missing Wednesday's game -- plus the end of Tuesday's game -- after being hit in the wrist with a pitch. He was able to swing the bat in the cages on Wednesday, and now he's back in the middle of the order for the M's. Haniger has been one of the keys to Seattle's strong play in 2018, slashing .296/.381/.568 with 11 homers and 36 RBI over 47 games.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch told reporters that he's hopeful Josh Reddick will only miss the minimum amount of time on the disabled list with his leg infection.

Reddick was placed on the disabled list retroactive to May 21, so he'd be eligible to return for the Astros on June 1. Houston was hoping that he could recover from the soreness with a few days off, but ultimately decided to place him on the DL to open up a roster spot. On the year, Reddick has a .740 OPS with six homers and a steal over 42 games.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter told reporters that Darren O'Day is likely to get a cortisone injection in his right elbow.

O'Day was supposed to throw a bullpen on Wednesday, but the right-hander wasn't feeling healthy enough to do so. If he received the injection, the Orioles will likely have the right-hander wait at least a few days to see how he responds, and then proceed from there. It's very unlikely we see him back on the mound before the end of May.

Matt Davidson (back) is not in the starting lineup against the Orioles on Thursday.

Davidson was a late scratch yesterday because of stiffness in his back, and he's not ready to make a return on Thursday. In his place, Jose Rondon will once again be the designated hitter and will hit fifth. For the year, Davidson has an .890 OPS with 11 homers and 29 RBI over 42 games.

Twins activated 3B Miguel Sano from the 10-day disabled list.

Sano will be back in the Twins' starting lineup for Friday night's series opener against the Mariners after missing a little under four weeks with a left hamstring strain. He batted .375/.474/.750 with two home runs over five rehab games with Triple-A Rochester.
May 24 - 12:07 PM

Twins optioned OF Jake Cave to Triple-A Rochester.

Cave hit a home run in his major league debut last Saturday, but he ultimately went 1-for-9 in his short stay with Minnesota. Miguel Sano has been activated off the disabled list in a corresponding move.
May 24 - 12:03 PM

Mark Trumbo (knee) is not in the lineup for Thursday's tilt against the White Sox.

It makes back-to-back games that Trumbo will be out of the lineup because of the knee trouble. Baltimore manager Buck Showalter told reporters that if Trumbo doesn't show improvement on Friday, he'll be reevaluated for a possible DL stint. Craig Gentry will play right field and hit seventh against Lucas Giolito.
