Here’s a recap of the transactions that occurred yesterday in the world of American League baseball. There was an injury and an activation in the AL, while the other moves were options.

The Texas Rangers activated right-hander Colby Lewis from the disabled list and the 32-year-old took the mound yesterday against the Oakland Athletics. Lewis held the A’s to a single run on three hits over his five innings of work, leaving the game after experiencing tightness in his forearm. However, Lewis said his removal was precautionary following the game.

To make room for Lewis, the Rangers optioned left-hander Martin Perez to Triple-A.

The Seattle Mariners have placed left-hander Charlie Furbush on the 15-day DL with a strained triceps muscle. To take Furbush’s place on their roster, the Mariners recalled right-hander Steve Delabar from Triple-A.

The Kansas City Royals optioned left-hander Ryan Verdugo back to Triple-A, recalling southpaw Francisley Bueno to take his spot on their roster.

The New York Yankees have recalled right-hander David Phelps from Triple-A, while optioning right-hander D.J. Mitchell.

Pedro Hernandez made his major league debut last night, surrendering eight runs on 12 hits to the Boston Red Sox over his four innings of work. The left-hander was "rewarded" for this uninspiring performance with a demotion back to Triple-A following the game. Chicago recalled left-hander Donnie Veal to take Hernandez’s spot on their roster.
