Marlins transferred OF Marcell Ozuna from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for Gil Velazquez on the 40-man roster. Ozuna underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb last month and won't return this season.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Royals are "quietly" letting teams know they plan to be sellers at the trade deadline.

The 16-33 Royals have no chance of competing this year and are looking to rebuild by trading some of their bigger names for prospects. Heyman named Kelvin Herrera and Mike Moustakas, who are both headed for free agency after this year, as players the Royals would consider trading. He also said they'd be open to shopping Lucas Duda, Jon Jay and Whit Merrifield. Herrera has been excellent in the closer's role this year and is almost certain to be traded at or before the July 31 deadline. The Astros, who have been searching for late-inning depth and a possible upgrade on Ken Giles, would be a logical fit.

Mets manager Mickey Callaway said he has no plans to remove from Jeurys Familia the closer role.

Familia coughed up the lead in Wednesday's loss to the Marlins and now leads the majors with four blown saves. Even as the blown saves pile up, Callaway still has faith in his closer. "If you look at the numbers, he's been our best reliever," said Callaway. "He's the best version of himself he's ever been." Despite Wednesday's meltdown, Familia still carries an impressive 2.35 ERA to go with an equally superb 10.96 K/9. He'll be fine.

Alex Gordon (hip, neck) has been scratched from Thursday's game against the Rangers.

Gordon had been slated to start in left field and bat sixth, but instead he'll get the night off. He's still dealing with stiffness in his hip and neck after making a great diving catch in Wednesday's win against the Cardinals. Jon Jay, who had been slated to start in center field, will shift over to left with Whit Merrifield getting the nod in center. Consider Gordon day-to-day.

Dylan Bundy fanned a career-high 14 and turned in his second career complete game as the Orioles beat the White Sox 9-3 on Thursday.

Bundy allowed just two hits, though one was a three-run homer in the fourth. It was a magnificent outing, though we wonder about the wisdom of having the oft-injured righty throw 121 pitches in a game that wasn't close and wouldn't have been very meaningful to an awful Orioles club even if it had been close. Still, give credit to Bundy, who is just a couple of weeks removed from failing to get anyone out in a start against the Orioles. Since his horrible three-start run that concluded with that loss, he's allowed seven runs and struck out 29 over 19 innings.

Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) will make his 2018 debut Monday or Tuesday against the Athletics.

Eovaldi got knocked around in his last rehab start for Triple-A Durham (4 IP, 10 H, 8 ER Wednesday at Gwinnett) but appears to finally be healthy following a long recovery from Tommy John surgery. The hard-throwing right-hander last pitched in the majors in 2016, going 9-8 with a 4.76 ERA over 24 appearances including 21 starts for the Yankees.

Dustin Pedroia (knee) will be activated for Friday's game against the Braves.

The 34-year-old is back after missing Boston's first 60 games while recovering from offseason knee surgery. Pedroia might be eased in at first, but it shouldn't take long for him to regain his post as the everyday second baseman. Eduardo Nunez, who had been filling in at second base, will shift to a utility role. Pedroia collected just one hit in 14 at-bats during his rehab assignment for Triple-A Pawtucket.

Travis Shaw is not in the Brewers' lineup Thursday against the Mets.

He's getting the night off against left-hander Steven Matz. Utility man Hernan Perez will fill in at third base and bat fifth. Shaw leads the Brewers in both home runs (12) and RBI (31) despite a sluggish .243 batting average.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the assault allegations against Roberto Osuna are of a "physical nature" and could result in a "significant" ban.

Osuna has denied that he did actual physical harm. His administrative leave was extended on Monday through May 28; the second time that his leave has been extended since his arrest for assault on May 8. Heyman mentions that previous cases for domestic violence without proof of physical abuse have received 15-game suspensions. If Heyman's sources are correct in the serious nature of the accusations, Osuna could be facing something closer to Aroldis Chapman's 30-game number, maybe more.

Twins activated 3B Miguel Sano from the 10-day disabled list.

Sano will be back in the Twins' starting lineup for Friday night's series opener against the Mariners after missing a little under four weeks with a left hamstring strain. He batted .375/.474/.750 with two home runs over five rehab games with Triple-A Rochester.
May 24 - 12:07 PM

Mark Trumbo (knee) is not in the lineup for Thursday's tilt against the White Sox.

It makes back-to-back games that Trumbo will be out of the lineup because of the knee trouble. Baltimore manager Buck Showalter told reporters that if Trumbo doesn't show improvement on Friday, he'll be reevaluated for a possible DL stint. Craig Gentry will play right field and hit seventh against Lucas Giolito.

Major League Baseball suspended C Welington Castillo for 80 games for performance-enhancing drug use.

Castillo was popped for taking the hormone Erythropoietin, a popular PED in the cycling world. He'll be out until late August and will not be eligible to participate in the 2018 postseason, not that that matters for any White Sox player this year. The 31-year-old catching was slashing .267/.309/466 with six home runs and 15 RBI through 33 games for Chicago. Omar Narvaez will presumably see the large share of the starts behind the plate moving forward. He carries no mixed-league fantasy upside.
