Michael Pineda (forearm) will play catch Wednesday.
It will be the first time he's done any throwing since being diagnosed last week with a Grade 1 right flexor muscle strain. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman on Tuesday said that Pineda will not return until September. "I don’t have control for that," Pineda said. "... It’s a long process for starting pitching and we have to do (it)."
Brian McCann tweaked his left knee during Tuesday's game.
McCann was shifting to block a pitch in the seventh inning when he said his knee "stretched a little bit" when he pushed off. He remained in the game but was moved from catcher to first base. No tests are planned as of now. "I’m just hoping I wake up tomorrow and it’s not stiff," McCann said Tuesday.
Andrelton Simmons (thumb) is hoping to return to the Braves' lineup before the end of the week.
Out with a bone bruise in his right thumb, Simmons was able to throw and field ground balls prior to Tuesday's game but has yet to resume swinging a bat. "(Trainer Jeff Porter) says if you see a bat in his hands, hit him over the head with it," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "But he’s getting better."
Rockies sent LHP Aaron Laffey outright to Triple-A Albuquerque.
He predictably cleared waivers after being removed from the 40-man roster. Laffey will stick around as a depth guy.
Cubs sent C Taylor Teagarden outright to Triple-A Iowa.
He cleared waivers after being designated for assignment. Teagarden will stick around for organizational depth but isn't going to be needed unless injuries strike.
