Alex Rodriguez is not in the Yankees lineup for Saturday's afternoon tilt against Johnny Cueto and the Giants.
Rodriguez has been struggling at the dish lately and has been receiving more and more days off because of it. They're rolling with Carlos Beltran as the DH on Saturday with Aaron Hicks starting in right field and batting ninth.
Pirates recalled C Elias Diaz from Triple-A Indianapolis.
He'll provide depth behind the plate for the Bucs with Eric Fryer away on paternity leave. He doesn't hold any fantasy value.
Pirates placed C Eric Fryer on the paternity leave list.
Fryer's wife gave birth to twins on Saturday morning, so he certainly has his hands full for the next couple of days. Elias Diaz was recalled from Triple-A to take his place on the roster.
Pirates optioned RHP A.J. Schugel to Triple-A Indianapolis.
Schugel had been serving as the long man in the Pirates bullpen, but with Jeff Locke shifting to that role he became expendable. Expect to see him again at some point during the second half of the season.
Pirates recalled RHP Tyler Glasnow from Triple-A Indianapolis.
Glasnow will make his second start with the Pirates on Saturday at home against the Phillies. If he pitches well, he could make a case for remaining in the rotation for the remainder of the season.
