MLB Daily Dish April 30: A.J. Griffin, Michael Pineda, Paco Rodriguez

Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

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

  • Oakland A's starter A.J. Griffin will undergo Tommy John surgery, according to CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman. The A's are already without Griffin's fellow starter Jarrod Parker, meaning Bob Melvin will have to stick with his current rotation for the remainder of the season and hope its league-best 2.89 ERA can continue.

Roster Moves

Signings

Miscellaneous

  • Miami Marlins starter Jose Fernandez allowed just two hits over eight shutout innings as the Marlins blew out the Atlanta Braves by a score of 9-0.
  • Cincinnati Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton hit his first career home run as part of a 3-for-4 day in which he scored twice and also stole a base.
