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.
