Mets purchased the contract of OF Kevin Kaczmarski from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Kaczmarski was batting .363/.413/.450 in 92 plate appearances at the Triple-A level, but he doesn't have enough power to warrant attention in standard fantasy leagues.

Mets purchased the contract of RHP Drew Smith from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Smith will join the Mets' bullpen ahead of Friday night's series opener against the Dodgers. He was sporting a 2.88 ERA over 24 appearances (one start) this season with Triple-A Las Vegas and Double-A Binghamton.
Jun 22 - 3:22 PM

Tigers signed C Josh Thole to a minor league contract.

Thole hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2016, when he posted a .169/.254/.220 slash line in 118 at-bats with the Blue Jays. He has been assigned to the Tigers' Double-A affiliate in Erie.
Jun 22 - 3:20 PM

Yoanys Quiala has received an 80-game suspension without pay after testing positive for Drostanolone.

Drostanolone is an anabolic–androgenic steroid. Quiala had a 5.97 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, and 44/22 K/BB ratio in 57 1/3 innings this season at Double-A Corpus Christi, so the drugs apparently weren't working very well.

Braves transferred RHP Jose Ramirez from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Ramirez has been out since April 18, so this is really just a paperwork move to open up a 40-man roster spot. There is no timetable for the 28-year-old setup man's return from a right shoulder impingement.
Jun 22 - 3:13 PM

Braves purchased the contract of OF Danny Santana from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Santana was sporting a decent .839 OPS with 11 home runs and eight stolen bases in 54 games this season at the Triple-A level, but he probably won't see enough playing time in Atlanta to offer fantasy upside.
Jun 22 - 3:12 PM

Braves placed RHP Mike Soroka on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.

Soroka struggled in his last start Tuesday against the Blue Jays, yielding four runs over 4 2/3 innings. It's unclear how long the 20-year-old might be sidelined. He just missed a month with a right shoulder strain, so the Braves figure to play this cautiously.
Jun 22 - 3:09 PM

Rays sent INF Rob Refsnyder outright to Triple-A Durham.

Refsnyder was designated for assignment by Tampa Bay earlier this week to open up a 40-man roster spot for Kevin Kiermaier's return from the 60-day disabled list. Kiermaier made it through waivers unclaimed.
Jun 22 - 3:07 PM

Rays optioned RHP Austin Pruitt to Triple-A Durham.

Pruitt has registered a 4.24 ERA over 51 innings this year in a long relief role with Tampa Bay. He probably won't be down in the minors for too long.
Jun 22 - 3:06 PM

Rays activated INF Daniel Robertson from the 10-day disabled list.

Robertson is back in action for Friday night's series opener against the Yankees after missing a little under two weeks with a left hamstring strain. The 24-year-old utility infielder has posted an impressive .257/.385/.423 batting line in 55 games this season with the Rays, but he doesn't offer enough counting-stats upside to warrant high ownership in standard mixed fantasy leagues.
Jun 22 - 3:03 PM

Twins released OF Nick Buss.

Buss was batting just .239/.309/.340 in 178 plate appearances this season at Triple-A Rochester. The 31-year-old has appeared in only 44 games at the MLB level.
Jun 22 - 3:01 PM

Dodgers activated INF Chase Utley from the 10-day disabled list.

Utley is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup Friday night against the Mets and will probably play sparingly the rest of the way. The 39-year-old infielder was batting .216/.302/.324 with one home run through 126 plate appearances when he landed on the disabled list May 30 with a left thumb strain.
Jun 22 - 2:57 PM

Daniel Murphy is out of the Nationals' starting lineup again on Friday versus the Phillies.

Murphy was also on the bench Thursday, though he did appear as a pinch-hitter. The veteran second baseman is 3-for-29 (.103) since returning from offseason knee surgery. Wilmer Difo will play the keystone for Washington on Friday night against the visiting Phils.
Jun 22 - 2:56 PM

Adam Eaton is out of the Nationals' starting lineup again on Friday night against the Phillies.

This is now two straight absences for Eaton, who has just one extra-base hit in 37 plate appearances since returning from ankle surgery. Juan Soto is in left field, Michael Taylor is in center field, and Bryce Harper is in right field for the Nats' series opener versus Philadelphia.
Jun 22 - 2:53 PM

Brett Gardner (knee) is back in the Yankees' starting lineup Friday night against the Rays.

Gardner will start in left field and bat leadoff after missing five straight games with a sore right knee. The 34-year-old has five homers, seven stolen bases, and 42 runs scored in 59 games played this season.
