The Angels designated Ryan Tepera for assignment on Sunday. Zach Weiss comes up from Triple-A.
The White Sox activated Jake Burger and optioned catcher Carlos Perez. Yikes! This article mentions in passing that Clayton Kershaw’s mother died the day before Mother’s Day. Bummer. The Athletics activated Aledmys Diaz and selected the contract of Garrett Acton. The Reds just placed two of their pitchers on the injured list and optioned a third. They recalled Kevin Herget and selected the contracts of Alan Busenitz and Silvino Bracho to replace them. Silvino Bracho sounds like he should be in a mafia movie. The Mets just designated right-hander Seth Elledge for assignment and selected Dennis Santana. The Marlins activated Garrett Cooper and placed Jesus Sanchez on the injured list. The Rays designated Javy Guerra for assignment. They just paid the Brewers cash for him two weeks ago. They also just placed Drew Rasmussen on the 60 day IL with a flexor strain. After only six days in the doghouse Willson Contreras is back to catching for the Cardinals.
Ryan Feltner of the Rockies was hit in the head by a line drive and had to leave the game. He has a skull fracture. He’s in the hospital.
