Jason Miller

Each weekday morning, we'll provide you with a recap of everything you need to know transaction-wise from yesterday in the baseball world. Injuries, rumors, signings and more–you'll find them all right here.

Injuries

Roster Moves

  • The Seattle Mariners made a series of moves on Thursday, activating right-hander Stephen Pryor from the 15-day DL and optioning Pryor to Triple-A for the time being. The Mariners also placed first baseman Ji-Man Choi on the restricted list after he was suspended 50 games after testing positive for methandienone, a banned performance-enhancing drug.
  • The Milwaukee Brewers placed first baseman Lyle Overbay on the paternity list, recalling utilityman Elian Herrera from Triple-A Nashville, the team announced. Overbay hasn't factored into the equation much for the Brewers this season, accumulating just 10 at-bats thus far.
  • The Minnesota Twins recalled infielder Eduardo Nunez from Triple-A Rochester, the team announced. Playing third base and batting seventh, Nunez went 1-for-3 with a walk in the nightcap of the Twins' doubleheader on Thursday.

Rumors

Scouts there say Hanrahan looked fit and healthy, and pitched at 87-93 mph, putting him possible ahead of schedule for someone 11 months removed from Tommy John surgery.

According to The Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo, teams are already discussing a deal for Hanrahan, who saved 76 games as the Pirates closer in 2011-12.

Miscellaneous

  • Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright pitched a complete-game, two-hit shutout as St. Louis crushed Washington, 8-0.
  • White Sox left-hander Chris Sale pitched seven innings of one-hit ball, striking out 10 batters in Chicago's 3-1 loss to the Red Sox.
  • Rehab assignments: SP Gavin Floyd (Braves), SP Mike Minor (Braves), SS Jason Bartlett (Twins), OF Denard Span (Nationals)
