J.D. Martinez underwent surgery Wednesday to have the hook of the hamate bone removed from his left hand.

Martinez is done for the season, but could play winter ball in Venezuela. The 25-year-old outfielder got off to a nice start this season, but will finish the year with a disappointing .241/.311/.375 batting line to go along with 11 home runs, 55 RBI and a .685 OPS. He will have to fight for a regular job during spring training.

Red Sox purchased the contract of 1B Sam Travis from Triple-A Pawtucket.

The Red Sox sent down Hector Velazquez to clear a spot on the active roster. Travis got off to a slow start in April, but he was batting .333/.389/.561 with three home runs and 13 RBI this month. He's likely to see most of his at-bats against left-handers in his first stint in the majors.

Carlos Santana will make another start in right field Tuesday against the Reds.

Santana had quite the scare in right field on Monday, but fortunately he's fine. He'll move back to first base on Wednesday when the series shifts to Cleveland.

Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Binghamton.

Cabrera presumably won't need much time before he's deemed ready to return. The veteran shortstop has been sidelined since May 13 due to a lingering injury to his left thumb. Jose Reyes has been handling the bulk of the shortstop duties with Cabrera on the shelf.

Craig Mish of Fantasy Sports Radio reports that the Padres are calling up prospect right-hander Dinelson Lamet.

The expectation, according to Mish, is that Lamet will make his major league debut Thursday against the Mets. The 24-year-old owns a 3.23 ERA and 50/20 K/BB ratio in 39 innings over eight starts with Triple-A El Paso this season. The walks are a concern and some have speculated that he could be bullpen-bound in the long-term, but he has shown an ability to miss bats. He could be worth a try in deeper fantasy formats.

Zack Greinke held the White Sox to one run over 8 2/3 innings Monday in the Diamondbacks' 5-1 win.

Greinke nearly had a complete game, but manager Torey Lovullo lifted the right-hander after Jose Abreu doubled with two outs in the top of the ninth. Greinke was brilliant, yielding just four hits and striking out 12 batters against just one walk. He's now 6-2 on the year with a 2.82 ERA and he leads all National League pitchers in strikeouts with 78. A road start against the Brewers is next.

Paul Goldschmidt finished 2-for-4 with a home run in the Diamondbacks' defeat of the White Sox on Monday.

Goldschmidt singled and scored on Daniel Descalso's three-run homer in the bottom of the fourth inning before popping Miguel Gonzalez for a solo shot in the bottom of the sixth. The star first baseman is batting .315/.448/.580 with 11 home runs, 35 RBI, 11 stolen bases, and 38 runs scored in 46 games this season for Arizona.

Ken Giles nailed down his 12th save of the season Monday in the Astros' 1-0 defeat of the Tigers.

Giles struck out two of the three batters he faced in the top of the ninth inning to finish off a combined shutout that was initiated by Brad Peacock's terrific spot start. Giles has a 3.44 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, and 23/7 K/BB ratio in 18 1/3 innings this season, and he's 12-for-13 in save opportunities for the American League West-leading Astros.
May 22 - 11:50 PM

Mark Melancon recorded his ninth save of the season Monday in the Giants' 6-4 win over the Cubs.

Melancon gave up a two-out single to Javier Baez but fanned Ian Happ to seal the victory for San Francisco. The veteran closer is 3-for-3 in save opportunities since coming off the disabled list May 17. He has a 2.63 ERA and 11/1 K/BB ratio in 13 2/3 total innings this year.
May 22 - 11:33 PM

Joe Panik went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in the Giants' defeat of the Cubs on Monday.

Panik scored the first run of the night with his solo shot off Cubs starter John Lackey in the top of the first inning, and he plated the Giants' second run with an RBI double off Lackey in the top of the second. Panik also reached on a hit-by-pitch in the fourth and he doubled again in the top of the sixth. The second baseman lifted his season OPS from .641 to .698 with the offensive outburst.
May 22 - 11:30 PM

Miguel Sano went 4-for-6 with a homer and three RBI as the Twins topped the Orioles 14-7 on Monday.

Sano had gone eight straight games without a homer, but even during that stretch, he hit .300 with a .382 OBP. He's been an awesome force since day one this year, and we see no reason to expect that to change.
May 22 - 11:19 PM

Jim Johnson earned his ninth save of the season Monday in the Braves' 5-2 defeat of the Pirates.

Johnson plunked Adam Frazier with two outs, but he induced a groundout from Josh Harrison to close out the victory for Atlanta. The veteran right-hander holds a sharp 2.84 ERA, 0.84 WHIP, and 19/3 K/BB ratio in 19 innings this season for the Braves.
