USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Phillies have acquired Michael Young from the Rangers.

Young accepted the deal after getting $1.2 million in benefits from the Rangers and a full no-trade clause from the Phillies. The Rangers are expected to cover $10 million of the $16 million owed to Young next season and will receive right-hander Josh Lindblom and prospect right-hander Lisalverto Bonilla. According to Nightengale, Young has informed the Phillies he is not willing to sign an extension. The 36-year-old will serve as the Phillies' starting third baseman in 2013.

Kyle Hendricks logged his second career complete game in Saturday's one-run, five-hit domination of the Phillies.

Hendricks struck out seven and didn't walk a batter in the ballgame. He made a bid for his first career shutout, until Freddy Galvis doubled, advanced on a ground ball and stole home in the ninth inning. Now 3-4 on the season, he'll carry a terrific 2.93 ERA and 0.96 WHIP into Thursday's start against the Nationals.

Giants placed RHP Matt Cain on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring injury.

It's been a few years since Cain has been fantasy relevant -- which makes this trip to the disabled list rather harmless -- but it still affects owners in deeper leagues or NL-onlies. Cain owns a 5.20 ERA with only a 6.37 K/9. Even when he returns, it's best to avoid him, if possible.

Denard Span was scratched from the Giants starting lineup on Saturday due to a bruised right hip.

Span is still dealing with a bit of soreness from crashing into the outfield wall earlier in the week, so manager Bruce Bochy felt he could get him a day off now that Hunter Pence had returned. Span should be back in the lineup on Sunday.

Mets acquired 1B James Loney from the Padres for cash considerations.

Loney is expected to platoon at first base with Wilmer Flores. As the strong side of the platoon, he should see enough at-bats to be relevant in NL-only formats, though even at his peak he was never much of a mixed league commodity. He was hitting well at Triple-A El Paso though, slashing .342/.373/.424 with a pair of homers and 28 RBI.

Dodgers optioned LHP Julio Urias to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

While he struggled in his big league debut on Friday, Urias flashed the skills and talent that have made him the top pitching prospect in the game. He'll continue to bide his time at Triple-A for now, but will almost assuredly get another chance with the Dodgers later in the season.

Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Reds.

Braun has battled a variety of ailments already this season, so giving him a breather to keep him fresh isn't a terrible idea, especially after he looked especially spry on Friday night with a pair of stolen bases. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, he misses a juicy matchup against Alfredo Simon.
May 28 - 1:09 PM

Cardinals designated INF Ruben Tejada for assignment.

Greg Garcia flashed enough in his brief callup that that Cardinals felt it would be more prudent to keep him on the roster as a reserve infielder instead of Tejada who was hitting just .176/.225/.235 in his 34 at-bats. He should be able to latch on elsewhere with little difficulty.
May 28 - 1:06 PM

Braves placed SS Erick Aybar on the 15-day disabled list with a right foot contusion.

Aybar suffered the injury when he was drilled by an Adam Conley offering during Friday's game. Rather than rush him back into action, the club will give Aybar ample time to heal. Daniel Castro should handle the bulk of the action at shortstop while he's sidelined.

Blue Jays placed SS Troy Tulowitzki on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right quadriceps.

Tulowitzki tweaked his injured quad while running to first base during Friday's game against the Red Sox. Darwin Barney will handle most of the action at shortstop while he's sidelined.

Troy Tulowitzki (quad) is not in the Blue Jays starting lineup on Saturday.

Tulowitzki tweaked his injured quad on Friday and underwent a precautionary MRI on Saturday. He's considered day-to-day. Darwin Barney will start in his place and bat eighth against Rick Porcello and the Red Sox.
May 28 - 10:59 AM

Aaron Hill continued his power surge against the Reds on Friday, blasting a pair of home runs in a 9-5 victory.

Hill registered the first and only three homer game of his career earlier in the month against this same Reds pitching staff. Hill tagged starter John Lamb for a solo homer that tied the game at 3-3 in the fourth inning, then replicated the feat in the fifth. Hill also singled in the contest, finishing the night 3-for-4 to raise his season slash up to .271/.340/.443 to go along with six homers and 19 RBI.
