Ubaldo Jimenez will start Sunday's game against the Mariners.

Jimenez is slowly winning back Buck Showalter's trust after being dropped from the rotation earlier this month. He scattered three hits and one run over five solid innings in his last outing Tuesday against San Diego. Since rejoining the rotation on June 22, Jimenez has lowered his ERA from 7.34 to 6.63.

Cuban infielder Yulieski Gurriel posted a picture of himself wearing Yankees gear on his Instagram account.

That would suggest he had a workout with the team on Thursday. It's Gurriel's fourth known workout after previous visits with the Astros, Mets and Dodgers. It's unclear where he would fit on the Yankees with Chase Headley installed at third base and Starlin Castro at second. We'd expect Gurriel to sign shortly after the international signing window opens on July 2.

Orioles optioned RHP Oliver Drake to Triple-A Norfolk.

Drake has had back-to-back rough outings, allowing six runs in only 2 1/3 innings against the Padres earlier this week. The 29-year-old should have more chances in Baltimore as the year rolls on.

Orioles optioned C Francisco Pena to Triple-A Norfolk.

He's no longer needed now that backup catcher Caleb Joseph is back after missing a month with a groin injury. Pena hit .219 with one homer and three RBI during his nine-game stint with Baltimore. He'll be called up again the next time an Orioles catcher gets hurt.

Orioles activated C Caleb Joseph from the 15-day disabled list.

The Orioles made room for Joseph by optioning Francisco Pena to Triple-A Norfolk. Joseph needed a month to recover from a testicular injury that required surgery. He'll return to his usual backup role behind starting catcher Matt Wieters.

Orioles activated RHP Vance Worley from the 15-day disabled list.

A strained groin sidelined him for about two weeks. The 28-year-old has enjoyed a successful year out of the bullpen, providing a 2.66 ERA over 40 2/3 innings. He'll continue to work as the Orioles' primary long reliever.

Andrew Heaney (elbow) will undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery on Friday.

The operation will be performed by Los Angeles-based surgeon Dr. Neal ElAttrache. Heaney received a stem cell injection two months ago in hopes of avoiding Tommy John surgery but it didn't make much of a difference. It's possible Heaney could return late next season but spring training of 2018 might be a more realistic timetable.

Desmond Jennings left Thursday's game against the Tigers with a tight left hamstring.

Jennings doubled in his lone at-bat before exiting in the third inning. Brandon Guyer, who started the game in right field, took over for Jennings in center with Nick Franklin substituting in right. Jennings is day-to-day.

Orioles purchased the contract of RHP Chaz Roe from Triple-A Norfolk.

Roe was called up to replace T.J. McFarland, who is headed to the disabled list with left knee inflammation. The 29-year-old has recorded a stellar 2.39 ERA in 33 outings for Norfolk this season. Roe made 36 appearances out of the Baltimore pen last year while posting a 4.14 ERA in 41 1/3 innings.
Jun 30 - 9:12 PM

Orioles placed LHP T.J. McFarland on the 15-day disabled list with left knee inflammation.

McFarland had been pitching through the injury but the Orioles decided giving him an extended rest was the best course of action. Chaz Roe has been called up to take McFarland's spot in the Orioles' bullpen. McFarland carries a disappointing 5.63 ERA over 15 outings this year.

Ramiro Pena's MRI revealed a sprained ankle.

Pena suffered the injury in last night's loss to Oakland. The injury will keep him out of the lineup for the next 5-7 days, though Pena could be available to pinch-hit this weekend. He's hit .400 with six RBI since arriving in the big leagues about three weeks ago.

Khris Davis (shoulder) is slated to take batting practice on Thursday.

If that goes well, he could be available off the bench tonight against San Francisco. Davis is hoping to return to the lineup Friday after being scratched from Wednesday's game with a bruised shoulder. He's been a bright spot for the A's this year with 19 HR and 53 RBI. Coco Crisp will start in his place Thursday night.
Jun 30 - 8:12 PM

Giants designated RHP Jacob Smith for assignment.

The team needed to clear a spot for Grant Green on the 40-man roster. Smith has had a tough year at Double-A with a 7.08 ERA over 22 outings for Richmond. He'll likely head back to Richmond if he clears waivers.
Jun 30 - 8:08 PM

Giants optioned RHP Chris Stratton to Triple-A Sacramento.

Stratton holds a respectable 3.60 ERA in seven outings for the Giants this year but his underwhelming K/BB (6/5) was probably a factor in his demotion. The 25-year-old should get a few more cameos in the big leagues this season.
Jun 30 - 8:05 PM

Giants purchased the contract of INF Grant Green from Triple-A Sacramento.

The Giants made room for Green by sending Chris Stratton down to Triple-A. The 28-year-old has had a solid year in the minors, hitting .294 with 33 RBI in 65 appearances for Sacramento. He missed time with a laceration earlier this month but is now back at full strength. Green will draw the start at second base and bat seventh Thursday against A's left-hander Dillon Overton.
