Matt Davidson (back) was scratched from the White Sox' starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Tigers.

Davidson was set to return after missing the previous three gamesdue to back stiffness, but he didn't feel right after taking batting practice on the field prior to the game. Jose Rondon has replaced him in the White Sox' lineup and will bat cleanup against Francisco Liriano and the Tigers.

Indians designated RHP Oliver Drake for assignment.

Rather than fix the ills in the Indians' bullpen, Drake contributed to the debacle, posting a 12.46 ERA, 1.85 WHIP and 4/1 K/BB ratio in 4 1/3 innings. Given his poor performance, there's a chance he could pass through waivers unclaimed and remain with the Indians.
May 26 - 3:08 PM

Indians recalled RHP Ben Taylor from Triple-A Columbus.

He'll bring a fresh arm to what has been a miserable bullpen for the Indians this season. Taylor has made three appearances with the Tribe this season, posting a 2.70 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 5/1 K/BB ratio over 3 1/3 innings. He'll function in middle relief.
May 26 - 3:06 PM

Athletics recalled RHP Carlos Ramirez from Triple-A Nashville.

Ramirez was claimed off of waivers from the Blue Jays earlier in the week. He owns a terrific 2.84 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 17/8 K/BB ratio over 19 innings at the big league level for his career. He's an intriguing arm that could eventually work his way into a setup gig if he pitches well.
May 26 - 2:42 PM

Athletics placed RHP Santiago Casilla on the 10-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain.

The right-hander has dealt with various shoulder issues over the years, so this is a troubling development. He owns a solid 3.32 ERA over 21 2/3 innings out of the A's bullpen this season. At the moment, there's no clear timetable for his potential return.
May 26 - 2:39 PM

Athletics recalled RHP Chris Bassitt from Triple-A Nashville.

The 29-year-old hurler hasn't appeared in the big leagues since the 2016 season. He has struggled at Triple-A Nashville this season, posting a 6.35 ERA and 1.65 WHIP in 28 1/3 innings. He'll work in middle relief for the A's.
May 26 - 2:38 PM

Athletics optioned RHP Josh Lucas to Triple-A Nashville.

Lucas has registered a 3.12 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 8/5 K/BB ratio over 8 2/3 innings with the big league club. He's a victim of the Athletics needing a fresh arm in the bullpen. Lucas should get another chance with the A's in relatively short order.
May 26 - 2:36 PM

Pirates' manager Clint Hurdle said Saturday that Ivan Nova is dealing with a sprained ligament in his right index finger.

There's a chance that Nova will hit the disabled list because of the issue. In that event, Nick Kingham would start in his place on Tuesday. Nova has the finger taped up and is currently getting treatment, but he remains hopeful that he'll be able to make his scheduled start.
