Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Rougned Odor was "out late" with teammate Yohander Mendez on Monday night in Kansas City.

That might help explain why Odor was scratched from the Rangers' starting lineup on Tuesday night, as Yohander Mendez got demoted to Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday afternoon for what was called a "violation of team rules." Stevenson writes that "the night on the town got out of hand for Mendez," though there are no other details available at this time. Jurickson Profar is starting at second base Tuesday over Odor, who holds a disappointing .217/.292/.309 batting line with just one home run and one stolen base in 45 games this year. Perhaps he too should be sent to the minor leagues.

Giants recalled RHP Pierce Johnson from Triple-A Sacramento.

Johnson will take the bullpen spot left vacant by Hunter Strickland, who broke his hand when he punched a door out of frustration on Monday. Johnson holds a 5.46 ERA in 31 1/3 innings this season at the MLB level.

Giants placed RHP Hunter Strickland on the 10-day disabled list with a fractured right hand.

Strickland broke his pitching hand Monday when he punched a door following a blown save against the Marlins. He will undergo surgery and is expected to miss 6-8 weeks. Tony Watson and Sam Dyson were floated as the likeliest fill-in options at closer Tuesday by Giants manager Bruce Bochy, though Mark Melancon could eventually retake the role.

Matt Joyce (back) is on track to return to the Athletics' active roster this weekend.

Joyce had three hits in his second minor league rehab game Tuesday at Triple-A Nashville, after going 1-for-3 in his rehab debut on Monday. The veteran outfielder was batting just .196 with a .677 OPS through 55 games with Oakland when he landed on the disabled list June 3 with a back injury.

Matt Chapman got a cortisone injection for his sore right hand on Tuesday.

The hope is that he responds well to the cortisone and is able to begin swinging a bat on Thursday. Chapman was placed on the disabled list June 16 with discomfort in his right hand, but an MRI showed no structural damage, so he shouldn't be out too long. This has been a breakout season for the 25-year-old third baseman.

Dodgers recalled RHP Brock Stewart from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Stewart will serve as the 26th man for the Dodgers in the second half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cubs. He has posted a 5.60 ERA in two starts and six relief appearances this year the major league level.
Jun 19 - 7:45 PM

Dodgers activated LHP Rich Hill from the 10-day disabled list.

Hill is set to rejoin the Dodgers' starting rotation for the second half of Tuesday's day-night doubleheader at Wrigley Field after missing a month with a blister on his left middle finger. The veteran southpaw struck out 10 batters over 4 2/3 innings in his lone rehab start last Thursday at High-A Rancho Cucamonga. He should be a valuable fantasy asset moving forward, assuming he can stay blister-free.
Jun 19 - 7:44 PM

Dodgers optioned INF/OF Breyvic Valera to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The move clears a 25-man roster spot for Rich Hill, who will return to the Dodgers' starting rotation for the second half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cubs. Valera has hit just .172/.273/.172 in 19 games (29 at-bats) this season at the major league level.
