Reds designated 1B/OF Peter O'Brien for assignment.

Cincinnati just claimed O'Brien off waivers nine days ago from the Royals. The 26-year-old has batted .168/.252/.304 with four home runs and 37 strikeouts in 32 games this season between Triple-A Omaha and Triple-A Louisville.

Reds placed LHP Amir Garrett on the 10-day disabled list with right hip inflammation.

Garrett had surrendered 13 earned runs in nine innings (two starts) since returning from Triple-A Louisville last week. It's been a very up-and-down start to the season for the talented young left-hander. There is no current timetable for his return, though this doesn't sound like a serious injury.

Reds claimed RHP Jake Buchanan off waivers from the Cubs.

Chicago designated Buchanan for assignment earlier this week after he put up a 4.75 ERA, 1.63 WHIP, and 29/19 K/BB ratio through 41 2/3 innings with Triple-A Iowa. He could actually get some starts in Cincinnati, but that speaks more to the sad state of the Reds' pitching staff than anything. Buchanan definitely shouldn't be trusted in standard fantasy leagues.

Twins prospect Mitchell Garver went 3-for-4 with a homer on Wednesday for Triple-A Rochester.

The homer was Garver's third for the Red Wings this season. A ninth-round selection in 2013, Garver has been impressive this season, particularly with his approach as seen in his .400 on-base percentage. He's also no slouch with the glove, and he just might be the Twins catcher of the future. The upside isn't great, but in two catcher leagues, he might be serviceable.
May 25 - 1:47 PM

Athletics prospect Paul Blackburn hurled seven shutout innings on Wednesday for Triple-A Nashville.

Blackburn allowed five hits over those seven innings, walking two and striking out six. Acquired for Danny Valencia this offseason, Blackburn has three usable pitches, the best being an above-average curve. He's not going to miss a ton of bats, but he should throw enough strikes to pitch at the backend of a rotation. Expect to see him in Oakland before the end of the year.
May 25 - 1:42 PM

Dodgers prospect Alex Verdugo went 2-for-5 with a double on Wednesday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

He also scored a run. Verdugo still isn't hitting for power, but it's tough to complain too much about a .321 average and a .402 on-base percentage. There is average power potential in his left-handed bat, so the homers should start to come. Even if they don't, he might have a chance to play everyday because of the advanced hit tool.
May 25 - 1:35 PM

Kenta Maeda (hamstring) will start for the Dodgers on Thursday night against the Cardinals.

Maeda allowed three runs -- one earned -- over four innings in a rehab start with High-A Rancho Cucamonga last Friday. He was on a nice roll before landing on the disabled list May 11 with a hamstring injury and attributed it to a change in approach. "I think I was relying too much on my four-seamer, throwing it hard and not focusing enough on getting hitters out quickly," Maeda told the Orange County Register on Wednesday night. "I think, looking back, I’m now relying on moving the ball more and making sure I’m more efficient. … I’ve come to realize I am not a power pitcher."
May 25 - 1:32 PM

Phillies prospect J.P. Crawford went 0-for-5 with an RBI on Wednesday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

The hitless day drops Crawford's average to .180. The only positive for his 2017 season is that he's still drawing walks, but the on-base percentage is still under .300. The defense makes Crawford a lock for the big-leagues, but there's nothing that's happened over the past year that suggests you'd want to start him on your fantasy team.
