Robert Stock - R - Padres
Jun 24 1:47 PM
Padres purchased the contract of RHP Robert Stock from Triple-A El Paso.
Stock is a former catching prospect-turned-pitcher who was in independent ball a couple years ago. He surprised the Padres by touching 100 mph during spring training and carried it over into a nice start between Double- and Triple-A with a 1.95 ERA and 39/13 K/BB ratio over 32 1/3 innings. The 28-year-old will be making his major league debut when he gets into a game.
Phil Maton - R - Padres
Jun 24 1:48 PM
Padres optioned RHP Phil Maton to Triple-A El Paso.
Maton holds a 1.53 ERA over 17 appearances for the Padres this season, but he's been wild and was scored upon his last two times out.
Kazuhisa Makita - R - Padres
Jun 24 1:49 PM

Garrett Richards - S - Angels
Jun 24 1:57 PM
Garrett Richards (hamstring) will throw a bullpen session Monday.
If that goes well, he'll throw off a mound again Wednesday and then hopefully make a rehab start next weekend. If Richards can progress without any setbacks, he should be in line to rejoin the Angels' rotation sometime next week.
Tyler Skaggs - S - Angels
Jun 24 1:33 PM
Tyler Skaggs (hamstring) has officially been cleared to start Monday against the Royals.
Skaggs had to be scratched from his last outing with a tight right hamstring, but he threw a bullpen session Saturday without issue and is now ready to go. There's a bit of risk of re-injury with a hamstring, but a favorable matchup against the Royals makes Skaggs a must-start.
Michael Feliz - R - Pirates
Jun 24 1:37 PM
Pirates placed RHP Michael Feliz on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.
Feliz has really struggled of late, including during an appearance Saturday. It's unclear at this point how much time he might miss.
Clay Holmes - R - Pirates
Jun 24 1:38 PM
Pirates recalled RHP Clay Holmes from Triple-A Indianapolis.
Holmes allowed one run over two relief innings in his major league debut earlier this season. He'll give the bullpen some length.
Austin Hedges - C - Padres
Jun 24 1:40 PM
Padres activated C Austin Hedges from the 10-day disabled list.
Hedges has been out since early May with a sore right elbow. He's struggled at the plate this season but his power makes him relevant in two-catcher formats.
Rafael Lopez - C - Padres
Jun 24 1:41 PM
Padres optioned C Rafael Lopez to Triple-A El Paso.
Lopez has hit .180/.263/.290 with three homers over 34 games with the Pads. He's no longer needed with Austin Hedges back from the DL.

Jun 24 1:43 PM
Padres placed RHP Jordan Lyles on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 21, with right forearm tightness.

Chris Young - OF - Angels
Jun 24 1:16 PM
Chris Young (hamstring) is back in the Angels' lineup Sunday.

Ryan Borucki - S - Blue Jays
Jun 24 12:47 PM
Blue Jays pitching prospect Ryan Borucki will make his major league debut Tuesday in Houston.
Borucki, 24, holds a 3.27 ERA over 13 starts for Triple-A Buffalo this season, although he's struck out just 58 across 77 innings. It's obviously not an ideal setting for his major league debut and he should not be used in fantasy leagues.
Jason Vargas - S - Mets
Jun 24 12:50 PM
Mets placed LHP Jason Vargas on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 21, with a strained calf.
Vargas hurt the calf during a conditioning drill on Saturday. It's unclear at this point how long he might be sidelined. Chris Flexen has replaced him on the roster, although it will be Jerry Blevins starting a "bullpen game" Sunday.
Chris Flexen - R - Mets
Jun 24 12:51 PM
Mets recalled RHP Chris Flexen from Triple-A Las Vegas.
Flexen won't start Sunday's game against the Dodgers but figures to be leaned on heavily in what will be a "bullpen game." He holds an 8.05 ERA across 16 career major league appearances.
Matt Albers - R - Brewers
Jun 24 12:54 PM
Matt Albers (shoulder) is slated to resume a throwing program Tuesday.
Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Sunday that things are "going in the right direction" with Albers but the reliever isn't expected to be back before the All-Star break. He's missed the last couple weeks with a shoulder injury.
Tyler Saladino - SS - Brewers
Jun 24 12:58 PM
Tyler Saladino (ankle) is making "very good progress" and is close to beginning a rehab assignment, Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Sunday.

Carlos Gonzalez - OF - Rockies
Jun 24 12:31 PM

Noel Cuevas will handle right field with the Marlins throwing lefty Caleb Smith. The Rockies also have Tom Murphy catching again.
Joe Smith - R - Astros
Jun 24 12:33 PM
Joe Smith (elbow) threw a bullpen session Sunday.
It's his first time throwing off a mound since he landed on the disabled list two and a half weeks ago with a sore right elbow. Smith should be ready to face hitters soon.

Jun 24 12:36 PM
Matt Chapman (hand) will have another checkup with Dr. Steven Shin in Los Angeles on Monday and could be given another cortisone shot.
Chapman won't be ready to return for the A's series in Detroit that begins Monday, but the hope is that he will return during their homestand which starts on Friday. He's been sidelined for the last week with soreness in the top of his right hand.

Jun 24 12:39 PM
Daniel Mengden has traveled back to Oakland to get his injured right foot examined.
Mengden was forced from Saturday's start with a sore foot. He has a history of foot issues but this injury isn't believed to be related to his previous problems. It's possible Mengden will be able to make his next start, but that hasn't been determined yet.
