Nationals recalled RHP Erick Fedde from Triple-A Syracuse.

Fedde will make a spot start for the Nats on Wednesday afternoon against the Padres. He's registered a weak 4.35 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and 42/13 K/BB ratio in 41 1/3 innings (eight starts) this season at Triple-A, but the 25-year-old former first-round pick makes for a decent fantasy streamer versus a San Diego offense that ranks 29th in team OPS.
May 23 - 12:35 PM

Rays purchased the contract of LHP Vidal Nuno from Triple-A Durham.

Nuno was sporting a 3.57 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and 37/3 K/BB ratio in 40 1/3 innings (seven starts, one relief appearance) this season at the Triple-A level. It's not clear what role he will play in Tampa Bay, where pitching roles aren't very defined.
May 23 - 12:29 PM

Rays placed RHP Jake Faria on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.

Faria suffered the oblique strain in the the third inning of his start Tuesday night against the Red Sox and Rays manager Kevin Cash acknowledged after the game that the 24-year-old right-hander will be sidelined for a while. It could be something like 4-6 weeks. Faria has turned in some impressive outings this season, but he holds a poor 5.48 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 37/22 K/BB ratio in 47 2/3 overall innings. It's probably safe to drop him in standard redraft leagues.
May 23 - 12:27 PM

Tyler O'Neill is not in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon against the Royals.

O'Neill went 1-for-4 with a single and three strikeouts on Tuesday night versus Kansas City after homering in three consecutive games. Harrison Bader is starting in right field on Wednesday, with Dexter Fowler again on the bench. Tommy Pham is in center and Marcell Ozuna is in left.
May 23 - 12:16 PM

Michael Pineda threw off a mound Wednesday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery.

Pineda had the reconstructive elbow procedure last July 18 and won't be an option for the Twins' rotation until at least mid-August or maybe even September. The 29-year-old right-hander signed a two-year, $10 million contract with Minnesota this past winter. He's more of a 2019 piece for the Twins.
May 23 - 11:44 AM

Austin Hedges (elbow) hit a three-run homer in his second rehab game Tuesday with Triple-A El Paso.

It would appear that Hedges will be ready to return to the Padres' active roster this weekend. He's been on the shelf since May 1 because of tendinitis in his right elbow. Raffy Lopez and A.J. Ellis are currently sharing time at catcher for San Diego.
May 23 - 11:21 AM

Colin Rea (elbow) allowed four runs over 3 1/3 innings Tuesday in his rehab debut with Double-A San Antonio.

It was his first live game since July 2016 -- he underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery in November 2016. Rea struck out two, walked one, and yielded six hits, including a home run. The 27-year-old right-hander will need several more rehab starts before he becomes an option for the San Diego rotation.
May 23 - 11:19 AM

Astros recalled OF Jake Marisnick from Triple-A Fresno.

Marisnick was demoted to the minor leagues on May 16 after batting just .141/.151/.282 over his first 87 plate appearances, but the Astros need him right now with Josh Reddick battling a leg infection.
