Brewers prospect Tyler Wagner looked sharp Saturday for Double-A Biloxi, allowing four hits and one run over seven innings.

Wagner finished with a season-high seven strikeouts, though he failed to win for the first time this year. He's posted a 3.27 ground-out to fly-out rate while limiting opponents to a paltry .198 average in 115 plate appearances. Milwaukee's No. 11 prospect has gone at least five innings in each of his five starts this year.

Diamondbacks prospect Aaron Blair spun seven shutout innings Saturday for Double-A Mobile.

Blair threw six straight balls to start the game but settled down after that, allowing just two hits. The 22-year-old used Saturday's outing to lower his season ERA from 4.01 to 3.13. Nine of the 21 outs he recorded came on the ground. Mobile didn't win until the 11th, leaving Blair with the no-decision.

Steve Pearce had to leave Sunday's game against the Rays with a stomach illness.

He was hitless in two at-bats before exiting. Pearce should be fine following Monday's off day.
May 3 - 3:25 PM

Zack Cozart exited Sunday's game versus the Braves with a finger injury.

Cozart was hurt while attempting to field a ground ball. Replays showed that he appeared to be bleeding and may have cracked a fingernail. The Reds should provide an update on his status shortly.
May 3 - 2:57 PM

Austin Jackson left Sunday's game versus the Astros with a right ankle injury.

Jackson looked to have rolled the ankle when he stepped on Roberto Hernandez's foot at first base. He needed assistance as he limped off to the clubhouse. It certainly looked like an injury that could require a disabled list stint, but the Mariners should have more on his injury later Sunday.

Red Sox transferred C Ryan Hanigan from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Luis Jimenez. Hanigan is out through the All-Star break after having surgery on Saturday to repair a fractured hand.
May 3 - 2:46 PM

Red Sox claimed INF Luis Jimenez off waivers from the Brewers.

Jimenez has hit just .218/.255/.269 over parts of three big league seasons, but he offers versatility and was a .299/.335/.509 hitter in the minors. He gives the Red Sox some infield depth.
May 3 - 2:45 PM

Joel Peralta (neck) has yet to resume a throwing program.

Peralta hasn't made any progress after being diagnosed late last month with a strained neck. He'll remain shut down until he starts feeling better.
May 3 - 2:42 PM

Brandon League (shoulder) threw a bullpen session on Sunday.

It's the first time he's thrown from the bump since being diagnosed with a right shoulder impingement back in March. While League does appear to finally be making strides, it's still going to be a while before he's activated since he's on the 60-day DL.
May 3 - 2:38 PM

Padres manager Bud Black said Sunday that it's possible Joaquin Benoit (arm) could go on the disabled list.

Benoit is going through a "dead arm" phase. His status remains day-to-day and even hour-to-hour, as it's possible he could be available as soon as Sunday but also possible he'll be shut down for a couple weeks.
May 3 - 2:36 PM

Cubs designated LHP Joseph Ortiz for assignment.

The move cleared space on the 40-man roster for Anthony Varvaro. Ortiz, 24, has a 1/5 K/BB ratio over 10 2/3 relief innings at Triple-A Iowa this season.
May 3 - 2:19 PM

Cubs claimed RHP Anthony Varvaro off waivers from the Red Sox.

Varvaro had a rough month for the Red Sox, but his sub-3.00 ERA for his career entering the season pretty much assured him of not passing through waivers unclaimed. He'll report to Triple-A Iowa for now but should get a shot with the big club before long.
May 3 - 2:17 PM

Justin Morneau is not in the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

It appears to just be a routine day off. Daniel Descalso is at first base while Morneau sits.
May 3 - 2:04 PM

Troy Tulowitzki is not in the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

It looks like he's just getting a breather. Rafael Ynoa is at shortstop Sunday in Tulowitzki's place.
May 3 - 2:02 PM

White Sox signed OF Tyler Colvin to a minor league contract.

Colvin refused a minor league assignment after failing to make the Marlins' Opening Day roster, hoping to net a big league deal elsewhere. That didn't happen and he's now resurfaced in the minors with Chicago. He'll probably need an injury or two to get a shot with the Pale Hose.
