Mariners recalled RHP Tom Wilhelmsen from Triple-A Tacoma.
Donn Roach was sent down in the corresponding move. Wilhelmsen signed a one-year deal with the Seattle last week after getting released by Texas. He owns a lousy 10.07 ERA over 22 appearances this year.
Caleb Cotham (shoulder) is expected to make at least five rehab appearances for Double-A Pensacola before joining the Reds' bullpen.
He'll be with the team through at least July 11, meaning Cotham's return to the big leagues won't come until after the All-Star break. It's already a lost year for Cincinnati so there's no point in rushing Cotham back if he's not 100 percent. The 28-year-old pitched to an ugly 7.40 ERA over 23 appearances for the Reds before getting hurt.
Billy Hamilton (concussion) is back in the Reds' lineup Thursday against the Nationals.
This comes as quite a surprise after Hamilton took a ball to the face in center field Wednesday against the Cubs. He was placed in the league's concussion protocol but must have passed all his tests. He'll bat seventh Thursday against Nats left-hander Gio Gonzalez. Despite missing 14 games this year, Hamilton still ranks third in the NL with 19 steals.
Twins manager Paul Molitor wouldn't commit to Tommy Milone making another start.
Milone was unimpressive in Thursday's loss to the White Sox, allowing five earned runs in only 3 1/3 innings. Jose Berrios flirted with a no-hitter in his last start for Triple-A Rochester and could be ready for another shot at the major leagues. Milone holds an underwhelming 6.23 ERA in seven outings for the Twins this year.
Adam Warren is expected to join the Cubs' rotation as a spot starter Tuesday or Wednesday against the Reds.
Manager Joe Maddon wants to give his starters an extra day of rest heading into the All-Star break. Warren was sent to the minors last week to get stretched out and is scheduled to start Thursday night's game for Triple-A Iowa. Warren owns a mediocre 4.56 ERA in 25 relief outings for the Cubs this year.
