5/26/2015 Matt Adams, StL, 1B
Adams strained his right quadriceps while running out a double in the fifth inning and has been removed from the game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Analysis: Adams grabbed his right hip area rounding first Tuesday night after the hit off reliever Vidal Nuno. Mark Reynolds pinch ran.
5/26/2015 C.J. Cron, LAA, 1B
The Angels sent Cron back to the minors Tuesday.

Analysis: Cron is batting just .204 this season with the Angels, failing to capitalize on an opportunity to become the Angels' everyday designated hitter after Josh Hamilton's departure for Texas. He has played mostly against left-handed starters lately, and had started just three of Los Angeles' last 13 games.
5/26/2015 Alberto Callaspo, Atl, 3B
A proposed multiplayer trade between the Dodgers and Braves that would have sent third baseman Juan Uribe to Atlanta and infielder Alberto Callaspo to Los Angeles has been vetoed by Callaspo.

Analysis: The deal collapsed because of collective bargaining agreement provision that any player who became a major league free agent and cannot be traded without his approval until after June 15. Callaspo agreed to a $3 million, one-year contract with the Braves in December after spending last season with Oakland.
5/26/2015 Juan Uribe, LAD, 3B
A proposed multiplayer trade between the Dodgers and Braves that would have sent third baseman Juan Uribe to Atlanta and infielder Alberto Callaspo to Los Angeles has been vetoed by Callaspo.

Analysis: Uribe lost his starting job due to a hitting slump and the emergence of veteran Justin Turner and rookie Alex Guerrero.
5/26/2015 Grant Green, LAA, LF
Green has been recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake by the Los Angeles Angels.

Analysis: Green is batting .329 with four homers and nine RBIs in 32 games in Salt Lake. The 27-year-old veteran spent a week on the Angels' roster in April.
5/26/2015 Enrique Burgos, Mil, P
The Arizona Diamondbacks placed Burgos on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis on Tuesday, a day after the reliever faced two batters and gave up hits to both.

Analysis: The 24-year-old Burgos had 25 strikeouts in 13 appearances over 13 2-3 innings, leading major league relievers with 16.46 strikeouts per nine innings. He is 0-2 with a 4.61 ERA.
5/26/2015 Jose Bautista, Tor, RF
Bautista is back in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the White Sox and says his sore right shoulder is pain free after a cortisone shot. Bautista, who had the injection Sunday, said he was ''encouraged'' after making approximately 25 throws at around 90 feet before taking batting practice, the most he's thrown in more than a month.

Analysis: Bautista hasn't been able to play the outfield since April 21, when he strained his shoulder making a throw to first base. He missed five games following the injury before returning as designated hitter on April 27. Batting .215 with seven homers and 25 RBIs, Bautista said he' hopes to play the field next Monday when the Blue Jays start a series at Washington next Monday.
5/26/2015 Brandon Finnegan, KC, P
Finnegan was optioned to Triple-A Omaha to make room on the Royals' 25-man roster for Jason Vargas.

Analysis: Finnegan was recalled Monday and he pitched three hitless innings in relief of Jeremy Guthrie during the Royals' 14-1 loss to New York.
5/26/2015 Ryan Lavarnway, Bal, C
The Orioles designated Lavarnway for assignment. The seldom-used Lavarnway was batting .107 in 10 games.

Analysis: Manager Buck Showalter said, ''I just don't think Ryan's swing and the things that he's capable of doing are conducive to playing once a week.'' Showalter hopes Lavarnway will accept a spot on the Norfolk roster.
5/26/2015 Steve Clevenger, Bal, C
The Orioles have recalled Clevenger from Triple-A Norfolk to serve as Caleb Joseph's backup.

Analysis: Clevenger hit .352 with two homers and 14 RBIs in 27 games with Norfolk. He played in 35 games with Baltimore last year and in 118 major league games overall.
5/26/2015 Marco Gonzales, StL, P
Gonzales won't throw for about three weeks because of a shoulder injury. St. Louis general manager John Mozeliak said Tuesday an MRI showed the 23-year-old left-hander has an impingement. Gonzales is on the roster of Triple-A Memphis, and he skipped a start in late April. Mozeliak says Gonzales will be re-evaluated in a week to 10 days.

Analysis: Selected with the 19th overall pick in the 2013 amateur draft, Gonzales was among the spring-training contenders for the fifth starting spot. Gonzales was 4-2 with a 4.19 ERA in five starts for St. Louis last year and pitched in relief in the postseason. He is 0-1 with a 6.35 ERA in six minor league starts this year.
5/26/2015 Vidal Nuno, Ari, P
The Diamondbacks have recalled Nuno from Triple-A Reno.

Analysis: The 27-year-old Nuno begins his second stint with Arizona.
5/26/2015 Enrique Burgos, Ari, P
The Diamondbacks placed Burgos on the disabled list Tuesday with right shoulder tendinitis, a day after the reliever faced two batters and gave up hits to both. Burgos met with team trainers and manager Chip Hale after throwing warmups Monday and stayed in the game, if briefly, to start the ninth inning of a 3-2, 10-inning loss.

Analysis: The 24-year-old Burgos had 25 strikeouts in 13 appearances over 13 2-3 innings, leading major league relievers with 16.46 strikeouts per nine innings. He is 0-2 with a 4.61 ERA.
5/26/2015 Yangervis Solarte, SD, 3B
Solarte had two hits including a double for the second straight day Monday against the Angels.

Analysis: Solarte is batting .283 with 10 doubles.
5/26/2015 Andre Ethier, LAD, RF
Ethier was 2 for 3 with his sixth home run Monday versus Atlanta.

Analysis: Ethier is bouncing back well from a dreadful 2014, posting a .955 OPS after a career-low .691 mark last year.
5/26/2015 Freddie Freeman, Atl, 1B
Freeman was 2 for 4 with his 23rd RBI Monday against the Dodgers.

Analysis: Freeman is batting .333 over his last 20 games.
5/26/2015 Charlie Morton, Det, OF
Morton won his season debut Monday against Miami, limiting the Marlins to two runs over seven innings in the 4-2 victory.

Analysis: Morton only struck out three but he also didn't issue any walks.
5/26/2015 Giancarlo Stanton, Mia, RF
Stanton was 2 for 4 and hit his 13th homer Monday at Pittsburgh.

Analysis: Stanton isn't impressing anyone with his batting average (.234), but his 42 RBIs lead baseball and he's drawing a walk every 8.61 plate appearances.
5/26/2015 Pedro Alvarez, Pit, 1B
Alvarez was 2 for 4 and homered for his second straight game Monday against the Marlins.

Analysis: Alvarez has found his groove over his last eight games, going 11 for 29 with four home runs and six RBIs.
5/26/2015 Chase Anderson, Ari, P
Anderson limited the damage to two runs despite 10 hits over six innings in Arizona's 3-2 loss at St. Louis on Monday.

Analysis: Anderson's record remains at 1-1 while his ERA climbed slightly to 2.59.
