Mariners recalled OF Stefen Romero from Triple-A Tacoma.
Romero will take the place of the injured Leonys Martin on the Mariners roster. The 27-year-old outfielder was hitting .358/.417/.601 with seven homers and 34 RBI in 39 games at Triple-A. He could be interesting in AL-only leagues, but is unlikely to see enough playing time to be relevant in mixed leagues.
Mariners placed OF Leonys Martin on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.
Rather than rush the hot-hitting outfielder back, they'll give him the proper time to heal his injury. Stefan Romero has been recalled from Triple-A to take his place on the M's roster.
Padres manager Andy Green said Friday that Tyson Ross (shoulder) could pick up a baseball within the next week.
The right-hander has been in San Diego doing weighted-ball drills while he continues to recover from inflammation in his pitching shoulder. They're going to play things very cautiously in his rehab, but it at least sounds as though he's trending in the right direction.
Sonny Gray (shoulder) is expected to throw off a mound on Saturday.
He played catch without any issues on Thursday and indicated Friday that his trapezius was feeling much better. A's manager Bob Melvin was unsure how many bullpens Gray would need before being cleared for a minor league rehab start, but it sounds like he could potentially be ready to return around when he's first eligible on June 6.
Chasen Shreve (shoulder) is expected to resume throwing next weekend.
He has rejoined the team after receiving a cortisone injection on Thursday. There remains no clear timetable for a potential return to the Yankees bullpen for the 25-year-old left-hander.
