Angels placed OF Kole Calhoun on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right ankle.

Calhoun rolled the ankle in the 11th inning of Tuesday's game, and it was immediately clear he was headed for a DL stint. Calhoun was on crutches in the clubhouse after the game, saying the ankle "hurt real bad." Hopefully it's just a 15-day thing and won't require a longer stay. Brennan Boesch was recalled to take his roster spot.

Angels recalled OF Brennan Boesch from Triple-A Salt Lake.

The Angels are piecing together an outfield with Josh Hamilton and Kole Calhoun on the disabled list. Boesch had two home runs and nine RBI through the first 13 games with Salt Lake and will be a bench bat for the Angels.

Giants optioned OF Juan Perez to Triple-A Fresno.

Perez was optioned to make room for Jeremy Affeldt. Perez was hitless in eight at-bats with the Giants before the demotion.
Apr 16 - 6:33 PM

Giants activated LHP Jeremy Affeldt from the 15-day disabled list.

Affeldt was sidelined to start the year due to a strained medial collateral ligament in his right knee. He'll resume his role as the Giants' primary left-handed reliever. Juan Perez was optioned to make room for Affeldt on the roster.

Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said Taijuan Walker will be shut down for two weeks with a right shoulder impingement.

Walker was scratched from his scheduled rehab start Tuesday due to the setback. It was supposed to be the final rehab start before he rejoined the big club, but that's gone by the wayside. Even when he does resume throwing, he'll need to build his arm strength back up before being recalled. At this point, his return date is up in the air.

Bryce Harper was scratched from the Nationals' lineup Wednesday due to left quad tightness.

The Nationals say he's been dealing with tightness in the quad since Friday. It was bad enough that he was removed from Monday's game, so it's not an situation that should be taken too lightly. At this point he seems to be day-to-day, but the team may give him more rest over the next few days to get his legs right.

Koji Uehara threw a 34-pitch bullpen session Wednesday and came out of it fine.

It was the last real hurdle before the right-hander returns to action for the Red Sox. He won't be available for Wednesday's game after throwing so many pitches in the bullpen, but he'll be ready for use for Thursday. It's assumed, then, that he'll also be ready to roll if a save opportunity arises.

Bryce Harper (quad) was a late scratch from the Nationals' lineup for Wednesday's game against the Marlins.

Harper was originally in the lineup batting third, but he was removed from the lineup about an hour before first pitch. There's no indication what the reason is but he left Monday's game with quad tightness, so its likely connected to that. He was replaced in left field by Tyler Moore.

Denard Span (concussion) could return from the concussion disabled list on Saturday.

Span first has to make it through rehab games on Thursday and Friday. He was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list April 12 after a collision with Braves infielder Dan Uggla. All reports so far have been good.
Apr 16 - 5:21 PM

Doug Fister (lat) headed to extended spring training in Viera, Florida on Wednesday.

Fister will begin working on a five-day throwing schedule, beginning with two simulated innings on Thursday. He'll then throw three simulated innings five days after, and a rehab assignment could follow that workout. Fister should join the Nationals around early May and will be a front-line fantasy starter once he is activated.

Brad Peacock will start Sunday against the A's.

Peacock opened the 2014 regular season in the Houston bullpen but will take over the rotation spot left vacant by Lucas Harrell, who was designated for assignment after getting rocked Tuesday by the Royals. Peacock is not good fantasy option, even with the upgraded role.
Apr 16 - 5:10 PM

Craig Kimbrel (shoulder) threw a 15-pitch bullpen session Wednesday and declared himself "ready."

According to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, manager Fredi Gonzalez was "noncommittal" about using Kimbrel on Wednesday night because of the cold weather in Philadelphia. Kimbrel has been unavailable the past two games with mild shoulder soreness.
Apr 16 - 4:58 PM

Mariners recalled OF James Jones from Triple-A Tacoma.

Jones is a .282/.363/.440 career hitter in the minor leagues with decent power and good speed, but the 25-year-old probably won't play enough to carry fantasy relevance. When he gets into a game, it'll be his major league debut.
Apr 16 - 4:39 PM

Mariners placed RHP Blake Beavan on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury.

Beavan left his start Tuesday night against the Rangers after experiencing tightness in his throwing shoulder. It's not yet known how long he might be sidelined.
Apr 16 - 4:38 PM

Yankees recalled RHP Shane Greene from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Greene will be the Yankees' 26th man for the second half of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cubs. The reliever will be optioned back to Triple-A after the game.
