Andy Pettitte left Thursday's start against the Mariners in the fifth inning with an apparent injury.

Pettitte whiffed the first two batters of the fifth before Yankees manager Joe Girardi came to get the left-hander. He dealt with back spasms last month, but it's unclear if that's the issue this time. The club will provide an update on his status soon.

Cardinals optioned SS Aledmys Diaz to Triple-A Memphis.

Diaz has been hitting fine (if unspectacularly) this season, slashing .260/.293/.396 with seven homers, 20 RBI and 30 runs scored in 273 at-bats. He was in a 5-for-22 slump prior to this demotion. The Cardinals will try to get him right at Triple-A, but in the meantime, Paul DeJong (starting at short on Wednesday) and Alex Mejia (just called up) will likely see the majority of at-bats at shortstop.

Koda Glover (back) said that he is now dealing with severe rotator cuff inflammation.

Glover landed on the disabled list with lower back stiffness on June 11 and has yet to resume a throwing program. He believes that attempting to pitch through that back stiffness might have led to overcompensation with his right shoulder, hence the severe inflammation. There is no current timetable for his recovery. Do not be surprised if the Nationals make an acquisition to shore up the back of the bullpen before the trade deadline.

Diamondbacks recalled SS Ketel Marte from Triple-A Reno.

Marte earns the call up with Nick Ahmed landing on the disabled list due to a fractured hand. He was hitting a sizzling .338/.391/.514 with six homers and seven base thefts with Triple-A Reno in the Pacific Coast League prior to his promotion on Wednesday. He warrants fantasy consideration for those in deeper formats.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the Yankees and Red Sox have reached out to the Marlins about a potential Martin Prado trade.

Chase Headley and Pablo Sandoval have both struggled at the hot corner for the Yanks and Sox, respectively. Prado has played in just 21 games this season due to a hamstring injury which cost him about six weeks of action. He is hitting .277/.299/.398 with two homers and nine RBI in 83 at-bats this season.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Blue Jays are among the teams with interest in Miguel Montero.

Montero was designated for assignment by the Cubs following a rant about Jake Arrieta not being able to hold runners on. It's possible Chicago could work out a trade of the catcher before having to release him, but either way they're going to have to pick up nearly all of what remains of his $14 million salary. Montero would be a backup to Russell Martin in Toronto.

Michael Conforto (hand) remained out of the Mets' lineup Wednesday.

He hasn't played since being hit on the left hand by a pitch Sunday. A pair of X-rays revealed no fracture, but Conforto wasn't able to grip a bat without pain Tuesday and it's unclear when he'll be ready to return to action. In the meantime, Curtis Granderson will continue to get starts. Lucas Duda is also getting a breather Wednesday, as Wilmer Flores is at first base and T.J. Rivera is at third.

Blue Jays signed OF Michael Saunders to a minor league contract.

Saunders was cut loose by the Phillies after hitting just .205/.257/.360 this season. They remain on the hook for all but a prorated portion of the veteran minimum. Saunders has been terrible at the dish since last year's All-Star break, but he was terrific for the Jays in the first half of 2016 and they'll hope he can recreate some of that. He could eventually be an option for them in left field.

Yankees placed DH Matt Holliday on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 25, with a viral infection.

Holliday has been feeling fatigued and is headed back to New York for further testing. The Yankees aren't sure at this point whether he's dealing with a virus or maybe allergies. They'll find out soon enough. Miguel Andujar has replaced him on the roster and should see regular starts in the DH spot.

Hanley Ramirez (knee) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.

He's missed three games now with a sore left knee. Sam Travis is filling in at designated hitter.
Jun 28 - 3:08 PM

Carlos Gomez (back) remained out of the Rangers' lineup Wednesday.

He's missed two straight starts with a sore back. Gomez is considered day-to-day. Delino DeShields is again in center field.
Jun 28 - 3:05 PM

Tigers activated DH Victor Martinez from the 10-day disabled list.

Martinez missed nearly two weeks of action with an irregular heartbeat. Thankfully, it appears that he's going to be fine. He'll go back to being the Tigers' regular designated hitter.
