  • STL Catcher #48
    Iván Herrera homered and walked in his fourth rehab game for Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.
    Herrera, out since June 19 with back tightness, is 3-for-10 with two homers and four walks on his rehab assignment. The Cardinals love Pedro Pagés defense behind the plate, so it’s unclear if Herrera is going to have a role with the team once he’s activated. It’d be a shame if not, since he’s probably one of the club’s five-or six-best hitters.
  • TB Relief Pitcher #53
    Rays optioned RHP Tyler Zuber to Triple-A Durham.
    Zuber was recalled Sunday and allowed one run in 1 1/3 innings of work in his lone appearance with the team. He’ll head back to Durham with Tyler Alexander recalled in the corresponding transaction.
  • TB Starting Pitcher #14
    Rays recalled LHP Tyler Alexander from Triple-A Norfolk.
    Alexander will be a multi-inning bullpen arm for the Rays while he’s with the club. Tyler Zuber was optioned to Triple-A in the corresponding transaction.
  • DET Starting Pitcher #45
    Tigers manager AJ Hinch told reporters Tuesday that Reese Olson’s shoulder injury is not considered serious.
    Olson was placed on the injured list Sunday with a right shoulder strain, but Hinch told MLB Network radio that testing revealed the injury to be “mild.” The 24-year-old remains without a timeline, but it sounds like Olson has a good chance to return at some point this summer.
  • ATL Third Baseman #65
    Braves recalled INF Luke Williams from Triple-A Gwinnett.
    Williams will take the place of Austin Riley on the active roster with Williams heading to the paternity list. He’s hit .220/.280/.287 in his 275 MLB plate appearances.
  • ATL Third Baseman #27
    Braves placed INF Austin Riley on the paternity list.
    Riley left Monday’s game after his wife went into labor. The infielder can be away from the team for up to three games. Luke Williams takes his place on the roster.
  • BAL Starting Pitcher #97
    Chayce McDermott is with the Orioles in Miami as a member of Baltimore’s taxi squad.
    McDermott could very well make his MLB debut in the series against the Marlins. The 25-year-old has forged a 3.96 ERA and 129/54 K/BB over his 91 innings in Triple-A across 19 starts with Norfolk. McDermott is not an elite pitching prospect, but would be worth streaming consideration against a not-so-good Miami roster.
  • INT First Baseman #25
    Cardinals transferred INF/OF Jared Young to the Doosan Bears of the Korea Baseball Organization.
    You can’t trade a player to an international team, but you can transfer them with a player’s agreement. Young has been one of the most productive hitters in Triple-A the last two years with the Cubs and Cardinals, and he should get a chance to play everyday in the KBO.
  • CIN Relief Pitcher #28
    Nick Martinez will start Tuesday’s game against Atlanta.
    Martinez has been working as a bulk pitcher as of late, and he hasn’t thrown five innings since May 16. The 33-year-old will give it a go against the Atlanta lineup, but it’s unlikely he goes the prerequisite frames to qualify for a win.
  • NYM Catcher #88
    Mets signed C Logan Porter to a one-year contract.
    The deal, which was first reported last Thursday, is now official. Porter joins New York’s active roster as a backup catching option behind young stalwart Francisco Alvarez. He’s not going to make an impact for fantasy purposes, but he’s a reliable depth option for the Mets moving forward.
  • LAD Left Fielder #37
    Teoscar Hernández went 3-for-4 with a homer, a double and all three Dodgers runs batted in Monday in a 3-2 win over the Giants.
    Hernández had a solo homer in the fourth and RBI singles in the sixth and eighth innings to lead the Dodgers to their 60th win of the year. He’s tied for 11th in the majors with 67 RBI and is alone in 13th place with his 21 homers.
