Tigers prospect right-hander Alex Faedo has been promoted to Double-A Erie.

It's well deserved. Faedo was selected 18th overall in last year's draft, but the Tigers shut him down after he was used heavily by the University of Florida. The wait has been worth it, though, as the 22-year-old put up a solid 3.10 ERA and 51/13 K/BB ratio in 61 innings across 12 starts with High-A Lakeland to begin his pro career. He looks like a promising building block for rebuilding Detroit.

Tigers prospect outfielder Daz Cameron has been promoted to Double-A Erie.

Cameron, who was acquired from the Astros in the Justin Verlander deal, got the promotion after batting .259/.346/.370 with three homers and 10 steals over 58 games with High-A Lakeland. The 21-year-old has seen a drop-off in power so far this year while striking out more often, but the Tigers think he's ready for a test at the next level.

Wil Myers (oblique) went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Sunday in his latest rehab game with Triple-A El Paso.

Myers is now 3-for-12 (.250) with a homer, a double, and five strikeouts through three rehab games as he makes his way back from a strained left oblique. He originally landed on the disabled list in late April, so the Padres will likely want him to play another couple of games in Triple-A before bringing him back. Still, a return later this week appears within reach assuming no setbacks.

Austin Hedges (elbow) went 2-for-4 with a solo homer Sunday in a rehab game with Triple-A El Paso.

It was his first game with El Paso after appearing in four games with High-A Lake Elsinore. Hedges had to be pulled off a rehab stint late last month with renewed discomfort in his elbow, but he hasn't had any issues this time around. He initially landed on the disabled list on May 1, but his return appears to be imminent.

Jeurys Familia (shoulder) allowed one run on three hits and walk over one inning of work in his return from the disabled list Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

Familia entered the game in the eighth inning with the Mets down by one. He allowed three straight hits to let in the run, but was able to escape without further damage. Robert Gsellman eventually notched the save after the Mets staged a comeback in the ninth. Familia should get his closer job back, though perhaps the Mets will want to see him shake the rust with a clean outing.

Javier Baez (elbow) said after Sunday's game that he expects to be in the Cubs' lineup on Monday.

Baez departed Sunday's game against the Cardinals after he was hit by a pitch in his left elbow. The 25-year-old infielder sat afterwards that he was good and that he isn't sure if he'll even need an X-ray to check for structural damage. Consider him day-to-day.

Matt Carpenter slugged his 10th home run of the season as the Cardinals topped the Cubs 5-0 on Sunday night in St. Louis.

With the victory, the Cardinals were able to salvage one game from their three-game weekend set and snapped their four-game losing streak. Carpenter's solo blast off of Brian Duensing increased the Cardinals' lead to 3-0 in the seventh inning. It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the night. The 32-year-old is now hitting .232/.332/.433 with 10 long balls and 26 RBI.

Yadier Molina went 1-for-4 with an RBI double as the Cardinals dispatched of the Cubs on Sunday night.

Molina's bloop double into left field gave the Cardinals an insurance run in the eighth inning. He's now hitting .260/.296/.413 with six homers, 24 and a pair of stolen bases in his first 162 plate appearances on the season.
