Yankees avoided arbitration with RHP Ivan Nova by agreeing to a one-year, $3.3 million contract.

It's a sizable raise for the right-hander in his first year of arbitration eligibility. Nova had his best season to date last year, posting a 3.10 ERA with 116 strikeouts across 139 1/3 frames.

Yonder Alonso (wrist) is back in the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

It's his first start since he took a pitch off his right wrist Tuesday. Alonso is at first base and batting fifth against Michael Pineda and the Yankees.

Astros placed RHP Charlie Morton on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 25, with a strained right lat.

Morton evidently must have suffered the injury during his last start or perhaps his between-starts bullpen session. Either way, he's going to be sidelined for a while. Mike Fiers had been slated to head to the bullpen with Brad Peacock taking his rotation spot, but he should be given a reprieve now.

Adrian Beltre (calf) could be activated from the disabled list Monday.

Beltre has returned to Texas after playing three extended spring training games. He'll be re-evaluated Monday as the Rangers return home for the beginning of a homestand, and all signs are pointing toward Beltre returning from the disabled list. The third baseman has been out all season with a strained right calf.

Zack Wheeler left Saturday's game against the Pirates with a blister.

Wheeler was at 94 pitches when he exited so his night was winding down anyway. The severity of his blister will determine Wheeler's availability going forward. Despite the blister, Wheeler turned in a quality start (6 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 5 Ks) and would have been in line for the win if not for a blown save by Addison Reed. His next start is scheduled for Thursday against Milwaukee.

Dallas Keuchel allowed just one earned run, four hits and two walks while recording eight strikeouts across six innings in a win Saturday against the Orioles.

Keuchel showed no ill effects from the neck injury which forced him to the 10-day disabled list. He made 86 pitches, throwing 55 for strikes, and continues to mow down opponents. Keuchel is now 8-0 with a 1.81 ERA and sparkling 0.88 WHIP, and he is even better at home. The southpaw is 4-0 with a 1.04 ERA in five outings at Minute Maid Park this season. His next scheduled start is set for Friday in Texas.

Buck Farmer struck out 11 White Sox over 6 1/3 scoreless innings to help the Tigers salvage a split in Saturday's doubleheader with a 4-3 win in the nightcap.

Making what was supposed to be a spot start as the team's 26th man for the doubleheader, Farmer may have forced the club to make a tough decision with his dominant performance. He gave up just three hits, all singles, while walking two over his 6 1/3 innings, then watched as the Sox tried to mount a comeback in the ninth to deny him of the win. Assuming the Tigers find reason to keep him around -- and given their rotation struggles, it's not hard to see how they might -- Farmer might get another shot at the White Sox when the two clubs meet next weekend.

Brandon McCarthy left Saturday's game against the Cubs with right knee tendinitis.

He's headed for an MRI. McCarthy started feeling discomfort in the fourth inning but went another two innings before getting the hook from manager Dave Roberts. The right-hander pitched in a win over the Cubs, scattering two hits and one walk over six shutout innings. If McCarthy lands on the disabled list, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Julio Urias would be candidates to replace him in the starting rotation.

Updating an earlier report, Kolten Wong was scratched from Saturday's game against the Rockies with left elbow stiffness.

It's the same injury that sidelined Wong earlier this week. Greg Garcia is starting at second base on Saturday and would likely draw another start there if Wong can't go on Sunday. Until we hear otherwise, consider Wong day-to-day.

Cameron Maybin finished 2-for-4 with three runs scored and two stolen bases to lead the Angels to a 5-2 win over the Marlins on Saturday.

Maybin had a single and a triple -- his first triple this season -- in the game, and he twice victimized Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto for stolen bases. He's now got 12 steals in 13 tries, second-most in the American League. He's hitting .247/.369/.380 overall, including batting .280 in the month of May.

Yoenis Cespedes was held out of Saturday's rehab game for High-A St. Lucie due to right quad soreness.

He suffered the injury while running the bases in a rehab game on Friday night. The Mets are hoping it's only a minor setback as Cespedes is tentatively expected to resume batting practice on Tuesday. A hamstring injury has sidelined Cespedes since late April.

According to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, "indications" are that Danny Salazar could be moved to the bullpen.

Cleveland will need to bump someone from the starting rotation with Corey Kluber (back) returning Thursday against the Athletics. With Mike Clevinger pitching extremely well (2-1, 2.82 ERA), it looks like Salazar could be the odd man out. Salazar only has three quality starts in 10 outings this year while struggling to a 5.50 ERA.
