  • Eddys Leonard SS | DET

    Tigers' Eddys Leonard: Back in action for Toledo

    Leonard (oblique) was reinstated from Triple-A Toledo's 7-day injured list June 4 and has gone 3-for-18 with a double, two walks, an RBI and a run scored in five games since rejoining the club.

    Leonard had resided on the shelf at Toledo since early April with a left oblique strain. Before being activated, Leonard made eight rehab appearances with Single-A Lakeland and went 5-for-22 with a double and two stolen bases.

  • Grant Anderson RP | TEX

    Rangers' Grant Anderson: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Rangers optioned Anderson to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday.

    Anderson hasn't found much success in the majors since joining the Rangers in May, posting a 9.53 ERA and 1.76 WHIP through 17 innings. He'll now head back to Triple-A in order to right the ship, and Brock Burke (hand) will come off the injured list to fill the opening in Texas' bullpen.

  • Brock Burke RP | TEX

    Rangers' Brock Burke: Reinstated from IL

    The Rangers reinstated Burke (hand) from the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

    Burke has been on the injured list since mid-April with a broken right (non-throwing) hand. He began a rehab assignment May 16, posting a 2.45 ERA and 1.09 WHIP through 11 innings across nine appearances -- seven of which came in Triple-A. The left-hander will presumably slide into a middle relief role with the Rangers, and his return will push Grant Anderson back to Triple-A Round Rock.

  • Nate Savino SP | ARI

    Diamondbacks' Nate Savino: Sticking around in rookie ball

    Single-A Visalia activated Savino (shoulder) from the 7-day injured list and assigned him to the rookie-level Arizona Complex League on May 23.

    Savino had already made four rehab appearances in the ACL before being activated. After he missed the entire 2023 season while recovering from shoulder surgery, Savino will get some extended time in rookie ball to hone his control before he reports to a full-season affiliate. Through eight appearances (six starts) in the ACL thus far, Savino has posted an 0.69 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 18:10 K:BB in 13 innings.

  • Kevin Newman SS | ARI

    Diamondbacks' Kevin Newman: Moving into reserve role

    Newman is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels.

    He'll sit for the second day in a row and looks set to see a steep reduction in playing time moving forward after the Diamondbacks brought back top shortstop Geraldo Perdomo from the injured list Tuesday. Newman joined the Diamondbacks in the second week of the season following Perdomo's placement on the IL and hit .266 with two home runs and two stolen bases over 49 games.

  • Trevor Megill RP | MIL

    Brewers' Trevor Megill: Records 11th save

    Megill earned the save Wednesday in a 5-4 win over the Blue Jays, working around a hit and a walk while striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning.

    After Toronto logged three straight hits off Hoby Milner to start the ninth, the Brewers turned to Megill to shut the door. He'd get off to a shaky start, allowing two inherited runs to score after a hit and a walk, though he'd ultimately settle in and close out the 5-3 victory. The 30-year-old Megill has now converted Milwaukee's last three save chances while allowing just one earned run in his last seven appearances. Megill's converted 11 of 12 save opportunities this year while working to a 1.89 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 25:5 K:BB across 19 innings.

  • Tobias Myers SP | MIL

    Brewers' Tobias Myers: Another strong outing Wednesday

    Myers (3-2) earned the win Wednesday over the Blue Jays, allowing one run on three hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out four.

    A Davis Schneider homer in the first inning accounted for all the damage against Myers on Wednesday. The rookie right-hander has made two starts since he was recalled from Triple-A in late May, allowing just one run on four hits over 14 innings. The 25-year-old Myers has certainly made a case to stick in the Brewers rotation with Joe Ross (back), Robert Gasser (elbow), Jakob Junis (shoulder) and DL Hall (knee) all sidelined. He's currently lined up to face the Angels at home in his next outing.

  • Royce Lewis 3B | MIN

    Twins' Royce Lewis: Homer, three hits in win

    Lewis went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer, a double and three total runs scored in Wednesday's 17-9 win over the Rockies.

    Lewis made his presence felt in Minnesota's 24-hit outburst -- he was one of eight Twins to record two or more hits, including a two-run homer off Angel Chivilli to extend the lead to 10-3. Since returning from a 10-week stint on the IL with a quad injury, Lewis has gone 9-for-28 (.321) with four homers and seven RBI across eight games.

  • Dodgers' Yoshinobu Yamamoto: Next start pushed back

    Manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday that Yamamoto's next start will be pushed back from Thursday to Saturday against Kansas City, Kirsten Watson of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.

    The Dodgers have not announced a replacement starter for Yamamoto, but they will give the right-hander an extra few days to rest after he threw a season-high 106 pitches across seven scoreless innings during his last outing against the Yankees. The 25-year-old has put up a 2.50 ERA and 1.11 WHIP alongside a 22:5 K:BB across 18 innings over his last three starts.

  • Austin Gomber SP | COL

    Rockies' Austin Gomber: Rough day in Minnesota

    Gomber (1-4) took the loss Wednesday against the Twins, allowing eight runs on 11 hits and a walk over three innings. He struck out two.

    The Twins got to Gomber early Wednesday, scoring five times in the first inning before the left-hander was charged with another three runs before recording an out in the fourth. Gomber's now surrendered 15 runs over just 11 innings in his last three starts after working to a 0.67 ERA in his previous four outings. Overall, the 30-year-old left-hander sports a 4.26 ERA with a 1.32 WHIP and 49:22 K:BB across 69.2 innings this year. Gomber will look to right the ship in his next start, though he's currently in line for a tough matchup with the Dodgers at Coors Field.
