Daniel Nava (knee) is expected to rejoin the Angels on Friday.
And manager Mike Scioscia confirmed Wednesday that Nava will resume serving as the Angels' primary left fielder, which probably means Rafael Ortega is headed back to Triple-A. Nava has been on the disabled list since April 16 with left patella tendinitis.
DJ LeMahieu is out of the Rockies' lineup Wednesday.
LeMahieu has leveled off somewhat after his scorching start to the 2016 season and will take a day of mental and physical rest on Wednesday with the Rockies wrapping up a series in San Diego. Cristhian Adames is starting at second base and batting ninth in the matinee game versus Padres right-hander Cesar Vargas.
Pirates RHP prospect Jameson Taillon scattered two hits and one walk over seven shutout innings Tuesday in a no-decision for Triple-A Indianapolis.
He lowered his ERA from 1.54 to 1.19 while pushing his season strikeout total to 26. Taillon is now tied with Lehigh Valley's Zach Eflin for the International League lead in WHIP (0.76). The 24-year-old has handed out just three free passes in 30 1/3 innings this season. Finally healthy after spending all of last year recovering from Tommy John surgery, Taillon is poised to make his Pirates debut this summer.
Indians designated C Adam Moore for assignment.
Moore's stay in the majors only lasted a handful of days. He will probably make it through waivers.
Indians acquired C Chris Gimenez from the Rangers for cash considerations.
Gimenez was designated for assignment by the Rangers on May 3. He'll take over as the Indians' backup catcher, with Adam Moore getting shipped out in a corresponding roster move. Gimenez, 33, is a .218/.303/.336 career hitter.
