  • NYY Shortstop #74
    To make room for Taylor Trammell, the Yankees waived Smith who joined the Yankees active roster last weekend to replace the injured Jon Berti. The 27-year-old infielder spent the past two seasons with Oakland where he slashed .182/.218/.314 across 297 plate appearances.
  • NYY Left Fielder #6
    Trammell was waived by the Dodgers earlier this week and it appears the Yankees had interest in the 26-year-old outfielder. Trammell went 0-for-6 with three strikeouts in Los Angeles and spent the previous three seasons with the Mariners where he slashed .168/.270/.368 across 351 plate appearances.
  • MIN Right Fielder #26
    Kepler will get his first action of live baseball since being placed on the 10-day injured list. The 31-year-old outfielder has been sidelined due to a knee injury, but has been progressing nicely this week. He should be back with the Twins in the coming days.
  • MIL Relief Pitcher #57
    The 33-year-old hurler heads to the minors after he went unclaimed. Hergert signed a minor league deal with Milwaukee in the offseason and was brought up to the active roster earlier this month, but didn’t make an appearance. He has been outrighted before in his career, so he could elect free agency but that’s yet to be determined.
  • MIL Relief Pitcher #36
    Myers was activated for Wednesday’s game against San Diego, but the 25-year-old did not make an appearance. He’ll head back down to the Triple-A where he’s posted a 1.84 ERA, 1.16 WHIP with a 19/6 K/BB ratio across 14 2/3 innings this season.
  • PIT Relief Pitcher #61
    Don’t hold your breath for Paul Skenes. Pirates GM Ben Cherington made it clear on a radio interview this week that team wants Skenes to build up volume at Triple-A before he makes his major league debut. Regardless, Hernandez’s stint with Pittsburgh will likely be remembered when he balked and allowed a runner to score before throwing his first pitch when the score was tied 1-1 in the seventh inning.
  • KC Starting Pitcher
    The 26-year-old will head back down to the minors after he was called up to be the 27th man for the Royals’ doubleheader on Wednesday.
  • BOS Left Fielder #30
    Refsnyder will join the Red Sox after starting the regular season on the injured list. The plan was for the 33-year-old to get reps at first base, but now that the team placed Tyler O’Neill on the 7-day IL, Refsnyder will likely play his primary position in the outfield.
  • BOS Right Fielder #17
    Despite O’Neill clearing concussion tests, the 28-year-old still needs to get back into baseball activities before he can return to action. He’ll be sidelined for at least the next weeks while he recovers from a nasty collision with Rafael Devers during Monday’s game against the Guardians.
  • KC Shortstop #12
    Loftin did a nice job filling in for Michael Massey by going 8-for-29 (.276 AVG) with six RBI and only five strike outs. The 25-year-old could have another opportunity if there is another injury to Kansas City’s infield. The Royals didn’t announce it, but with this move, it’s more likely than not that Michael Massey will return from the injured list and start his season against the Orioles this weekend.
