Pirates prospect Nick Kingham underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery on Wednesday.

Kingham hadn't pitched since May 6 and was diagnosed this week with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his throwing elbow. The 23-year-old right-hander ranked 67th on Baseball Prospectus' top-100 prospects list over the winter after posting a 3.34 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 119/52 K/BB ratio in 159 innings last season between Double-A Altoona and Triple-A Indianapolis. He won't pitch again until late 2016. It's obviously a significant blow to the Bucs' rotation depth.

The appeal hearing for Brian Matusz's eight-game suspension is scheduled for June 3.

Matusz was delivered the eight-game sentence from Major League Baseball on Monday after getting caught with a sticky grip-enhancer on his arm Saturday during an appearance against the Marlins. It's doubtful the lefty reliever will be able to get it reduced, but he's been able to continue pitching while the process plays out.

Cardinals optioned RHP Miguel Socolovich to Triple-A Memphis.

Socolovich had registered a 1.17 ERA, 0.78 WHIP, and 8/1 K/BB ratio through 7 2/3 innings out of the St. Louis bullpen, so this is a surprising move. The 28-year-old right-hander probably won't be in the minors long.

Kevin Gausman (shoulder) is scheduled to make starts June 6 and June 11 at Triple-A Norfolk.

That assumes he gets through his final simulated game without issue. Gausman has been on the self since early May with tendinitis in his right shoulder and it's not clear when he might return to the major leagues. It's also unclear what his role will be once he does make it back to Baltimore.

Conor Gillaspie (foot) will start the second half of Thursday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

Gillaspie was held out of action Monday-Wednesday in Toronto for fear that the Rogers Centre turf would aggravate his lingering plantar fasciitis. Gordon Beckham is at third base for the White Sox in the first game Thursday at Camden Yards, but Gillaspie will man the hot corner in the nightcap.
