Devin Mesoraco will undergo surgery on Tuesday to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder.
It was a labrum tear in his hip that ended his 2015 campaign and now Mesoraco is facing another lost season. He's hit only .158/.245/.200 across just 106 plate appearances since the beginning of 2015. Tucker Barnhart and Ramon Cabrera will handle the catching duties with Mesoraco on the shelf.
Astros recalled RHP Michael Feliz from Triple-A Fresno.
Feliz has been back-and-forth from the majors and minors this season, allowing 10 runs -- nine earned -- over 7 1/3 innings with the big club. He'll be with the Astros while Tony Sipp is on paternity leave.

Tigers released INF Tommy Field.
Field, 29, was hitting only .162/.295/.189 at Triple-A Toledo. He'll look for a minor league deal elsewhere.
Royals recalled LHP Brian Flynn from Triple-A Omaha.
Flynn holds a 3.94 ERA and 14/9 K/BB ratio over 16 innings for Omaha this season. He hasn't appeared in the majors since 2014.

Justin Bour (finger) remained out of the Marlins' lineup Friday.
Bour is still recovering from a dislocated left pinkie finger, although he hopes to play this weekend. Chris Johnson is handling first base in his place.
