Chris Bassitt has been diagnosed with a partially torn UCL in his right elbow and could require Tommy John surgery.
It's another tough break for the Athletics who have been ravaged by injuries in their starting rotation. Bassitt will get a second opinion on Thursday to confirm the diagnosis, but it's very likely his 2016 season is over.
Phillies recalled RHP Colton Murray from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Murray will take the place of the injured Dalier Hinojosa in the Phillies bullpen. The 26-year-old hurler posted a 6.10 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 14/5 K/BB ratio across 10 1/3 innings at Triple-A. He'll be used in low-leverage situations.
Phillies placed RHP Dalier Hinojosa on the 15-day disabled list with a right hand contusion.
He'll be replaced in the Phillies bullpen for the time being by Colton Murray who was recalled from Triple-A on Saturday. Hinojosa is expected to only need around the minimum time on the disabled list.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy admitted Saturday that Joe Panik (groin) is likely to sit out the remainder of the weekend, though he is available to pinch hit.
Panik suffered a minor groin injury during the final inning of Friday's game. Kelby Tomlinson is starting in his place on Saturday and is expected to fill in again on Sunday.
Devin Mesoraco remains out of the Reds starting lineup on Saturday.
It sounds as though Reds manager Bryan Price wanted to give his young backstop a few days off to clear his head after starting the season in a .140/.218/.160 funk with only one RBI. Tucker Barnhart is behind the plate again on Saturday and batting seventh for the Reds against Francisco Liriano and the Pirates.
