Nick Markakis is getting the day off Thursday.
May 23   1:38 PM

Charlie Culberson will start in right field and bat seventh versus the Giants and left-hander Madison Bumgarner. Markakis has hit .310/.415/.496 this year against righties and .213/.260/.255 against lefties.

Alex Reyes (finger) has joined up with High-A Palm Beach.
May 23   12:34 PM

Reyes will work out of the rotation at Palm Beach for a bit before probably advancing back to Triple-A Memphis at some point. The 24-year-old right-hander fractured his left pinkie finger when he punched a wall after a rough start for Memphis in late April, but he's recovered now.

Cardinals optioned RHP Ryan Helsley to Triple-A Memphis.
May 23   12:18 PM

Helsley has pitched pretty well this season at the major league level -- 3.38 ERA, 10/2 K/BB ratio in eight innings of relief -- but the Cardinals wanted to keep outfielder Lane Thomas around after he served as the 26th man in Wednesday's doubleheader against the Royals.

Lane Thomas will remain on the Cardinals' active roster.
May 23   12:18 PM

Thomas was called up to serve as the 26th man in Wednesday's doubleheader against the Royals, and now he's going to stick around as a member of the 25-man roster. The 23-year-old outfielder is 4-for-10 with one home run and four RBI in eight games this season with St. Louis.

Phillies optioned RHP Cole Irvin to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
May 23   11:46 AM

Irvin got lit up for seven runs over 4 2/3 innings in a start Wednesday versus the Cubs. He should get another shot later this summer, either as a member of the Phillies' rotation or as a long reliever.

Phillies recalled RHP Drew Anderson from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
May 23   11:46 AM

Anderson will return to the Phillies' bullpen ahead of Wednesday afternoon's series finale against the Cubs. He has yielded five runs in six innings of relief this year at the major league level.

Travis Shaw (wrist) went 0-for-3 in his first rehab game Wednesday with Triple-A San Antonio.
May 23   11:46 AM

Shaw will probably remain with San Antonio through the weekend, and maybe for much of next week. He was batting just .163/.266/.281 through 40 games when he landed on the injured list May 14 with a strained right wrist.

Angels OF prospect Jo Adell (hamstring, ankle) has joined up with High-A Inland Empire.
May 23   11:27 AM

Adell is technically on Double-A Mobile's injured list, so he should eventually settle in there after a handful of games in High-A ball. The 20-year-old top outfield prospect has been out all season with a Grade 2 right ankle sprain and Grade 1 left hamstring strain, but he's ready for live action now and could be a fast riser through the Angels' minor league system. He's hit .302/.362/.539 with 25 home runs and 23 stolen bases in 148 professional games since being selected 10th overall in the 2017 MLB Draft out of a high school in Kentucky.

Blue Jays optioned RHP Jimmy Cordero to Triple-A Buffalo.
May 23   10:49 AM

Cordero was claimed off waivers from the Nationals last week and made just one appearance for Toronto before getting the boot back to Triple-A. He should get another shot later this summer.

Ryan Zimmerman continues to experience discomfort in his foot while running.
May 23   10:49 AM

He's going to be backed off all running workouts for a bit, but the veteran first baseman did hit in a batting cage on Thursday morning. Zimmerman is fighting plantar fasciitis yet again, and there is currently no timetable for his return to the Nationals' active 25-man roster.

Jeff McNeil (hamstring) remains out of the Mets' starting lineup on Thursday.
May 23   10:33 AM

McNeil felt some minor discomfort in his left hamstring while running the bases on Tuesday night and will continue to rest. J.D. Davis is in left field and Adeiny Hechavarria is playing second base in Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Nationals.

Mets recalled RHP Ryan O'Rourke from Triple-A Syracuse.
May 23   10:33 AM

O'Rourke will be available out of the Mets' bullpen for Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Nationals. The 31-year-old right-hander made two scoreless relief appearances with New York earlier this season.

Blue Jays activated LHP Clayton Richard from the 10-day injured list.
May 23   10:33 AM

Richard will make his Blue Jays debut on Thursday afternoon against the Red Sox after missing the first eight weeks of the 2019 season while recovering from a stress reaction in his right knee. The veteran southpaw will probably be limited to 50-60 pitches in Thursday's outing and shouldn't really be on the fantasy radar anyway.

Robinson Cano (quad) is not in the Mets' starting lineup Thursday versus the Nationals.
May 23   10:16 AM

Cano made an early exit from Wednesday's game after tweaking something in his left quad while running down the first base line. He could be placed on the injured list shortly. Adeiny Hechavarria will fill in at second base in Thursday's matinee game against Washington.

Mets recalled INF Luis Guillorme from Triple-A Syracuse.
May 23   10:16 AM

Robinson Cano has been placed on the injured list in a corresponding roster move after suffering a quad strain while running the bases on Wednesday. Guillorme will probably share starts at second base with Adeiny Hechavarria in Cano's absence, but there's no fantasy appeal here.

Red Sox placed RHP Tyler Thornburg on the 10-day injured list with a hip impingement.
May 23   10:16 AM

Travis Lakins has been added to the Red Sox bullpen in a corresponding roster move. Thornburg owns a rough 7.71 ERA in 18 2/3 innings this season, and this might be more of a phantom injury than anything overly serious. He'll probably do a lengthy minor league rehab assignment.

Red Sox recalled RHP Travis Lakins from Triple-A Pawtucket.
May 23   10:16 AM

Lakins will return to Boston's bullpen ahead of Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Blue Jays. The 24-year-old right-hander made one appearance for the Red Sox back in late April.

Yankees recalled LHP Nestor Cortes from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
May 23   9:58 AM

Cortes will return to the Yanks' bullpen ahead of Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Orioles, though it could be another short stay. He has surrendered six earned runs in six innings this year with New York.

Jason Vargas (hamstring) will start for the Mets on Saturday against the Tigers.
May 23   9:58 AM

Vargas has been sidelined for about three weeks with a left hamstring strain. He pitched well in a minor league rehab start this past Sunday at Double-A Binghamton, but the veteran southpaw owns an ugly 5.92 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 24 1/3 innings with the Mets so far in 2019 and should not be trusted in fantasy leagues, even with a juicy matchup versus Detroit.

Jung Ho Kang (side) is hitting in the cages, throwing, and fielding grounders.
May 23   9:26 AM

The next step is live batting practice, and then Kang should be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment shortly after that. He's been on the injured list since May 12 due to a left side strain. Colin Moran will continue to fill in as the Pirates' primary third baseman.
