Blue Jays designated RHP David Herndon for assignment.

Toronto claimed Herndon form the Phillies just over a week ago, but he's now getting the boot to clear a roster spot for left-hander Scott Maine. Herndon, 27, should be able to find an organization that wants him.

Joe Musgrove (shoulder) will make his Pirates debut Friday against the Cardinals.

It had looked like it would be Wednesday, but manager Clint Hurdle officially announced Sunday that Friday will be Musgrove's debut with his new club. The right-hander has been out all season with a shoulder issue that cropped up in spring training but made it through four rehab starts with no issues, posting a 4.58 ERA and 17/2 K/BB ratio over 17 2/3 innings. Musgrove should be picked up in deeper mixed leagues, although it might be a good idea to keep him on the bench for a start or two to see how he looks.

Pirates activated 2B Josh Harrison from the 10-day disabled list.

Harrison missed five weeks of action with a fractured fifth metacarpal in his left hand. He'll return to a .263/.328/.351 batting line and will go back to being the Pirates' everyday second baseman and leadoff hitter.

Nationals purchased the contract of OF Juan Soto from Double-A Harrisburg.

It's a bold move, as Soto will be the youngest player in the majors at 19 and has just 512 plate appearances as a pro, with nearly all of them coming in the lower minors. However, there's no doubting his talent, and he's posted a ridiculous .362/.462/.757 batting line with 14 home runs and 52 RBI across 39 games over his three stops this season. Soto will be the Nats' regular left fielder with Adam Eaton (ankle) slated to be out a while longer, although he's not in Sunday's lineup with the Dodgers throwing lefty Alex Wood.

Braves released 3B/OF Jose Bautista.

It's an experiment that just never worked out, as Bautista unsurprisingly struggled defensively at third base and didn't do nearly enough with the bat (.143/.250/.343) to make up for it. Johan Camargo will take over as the everyday third baseman for the Braves. This could be the end of the line for the 37-year-old Bautista, although Braves general manager Alex Anthopoulos said the veteran has a standing offer to join Triple-A Gwinnett if he's unable to catch on anywhere else.

James Paxton allowed just two earned runs, three hits and a walk with eight strikeouts in a complete-game victory against the Tigers on Saturday.

Paxton has gone the distance in two of his past three outings. He threw 83 of his 117 pitches for strikes to lower his ERA to 3.30. He has managed five straight quality starts while winning his past three decisions over the past nine outings. The southpaw hasn't endured a setback since losing his initial start of the season back on March 31 against the Indians. He'll look to stay hot at home Friday against the visiting Twins.

Daniel Robertson connected for his first-career grand slam in Saturday's 5-3 road victory against the Angels.

Robertson, from nearby Upland, Calif., had a huge contingent of fans cheering for him in what has been a very successful homecoming to SoCal. The 24-year-old middle infielder is 5-for-10 with two home runs, six RBI and five runs scored in the first three games of the series. He'll look to stay hot against rookie RHP Shohei Ohtani in the series finale on Sunday.

Devin Mesoraco went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Diamondbacks.

Mesoraco was instrumental in the Mets' push to overcome a 4-2 deficit in the eighth inning. Stepping to the plate after Archie Bradley had surrendered a leadoff single to Jay Bruce to open the frame, the backstop proceeded to uncoil for a game-tying two-run shot. With their life thus renewed, Mesoraco's crew completed the comeback via a walkoff sacrifice fly by Wilmer Flores in the bottom of the ninth inning. Since coming over to New York in the trade that sent Matt Harvey to the Reds earlier this month, the catcher has already socked three home runs and driven in five runs through the first seven games he's played in his new uniform.

Rich Hill (blister) is expected to go on the 10-day disabled list.

Hill had a blister on his left pitching hand rip open Saturday -- Hill told reporters he felt it during his warmup pitches, and he threw just two pitches before exiting Saturday's contest against the Nationals. The southpaw, who has dealt with blister issues for years now, said this one is as bad as the blister in 2016 that cost him weeks at a time, even delaying his Dodgers debut after they acquired him from the A's at the waiver trade deadline that year. There exists no timetable at this point.

Howie Kendrick suffered a ruptured right Achilles Saturday and will undergo surgery Monday.

Kendrick hurt himself making a catch in Saturday afternoon's game against the Dodgers and had to be carted off the field. The Nationals haven't put a timetable on it yet, but a ruptured Achilles is almost certainly a season-ending injury at this stage of the year. The Nats are reportedly promoting top prospect Juan Soto to replace Kendrick on the active roster.
May 20 - 12:04 AM

Josh Hader earned the win and got the last seven outs Saturday against the Twins, closing out a 5-4 win.

Hader came on with the game tied in the seventh inning and just kept getting outs, issuing just one walk without allowing a hit and striking out six. People call them video-game numbers, but most people aren't even good enough at video games to put up the kind of stats Hader is putting up at the back of the Brewers' pen this year. Through Saturday, the southpaw has a 1.32 ERA, 0.51 WHIP and 56/7 K/BB ratio in 27 1/3 innings of work.

Jose Quintana tossed seven innings of one-hit, one-run baseball in Saturday's 10-0 win over the Reds in the second game of a doubleheader.

Quintana was in need of a sharp performance after surrendering three homers to the Mets last time out, and the Reds offered him the perfect rebound opponent to work on. He was brilliant throughout, at least setting aside the four walks that he issued. He struck out seven on the evening and finished his seven innings of work having thrown 101 pitches (63 strikes). Had he been a bit more economical, he could have easily pitched into the eighth or ninth inning. The Reds were not touching him. He'll try to use this as a springboard toward respectability when he brings his still-cumbersome 4.47 ERA and 1.47 WHIP into a home date with the Giants next time out.
