Joy R. Absalon-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.


  • The Rangers placed left-hander Matt Harrison on the 15-day DL with lower back inflammation and recalled right-hander Miles Mikolas from Triple-A Round Rock, the team announced.
  • The Los Angeles Dodgers activated catcher A.J. Ellis from the 15-day DL and optioned catcher Miguel Olivo to Triple-A Albuquerque, the team announced. Ellis went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in his first game back on Wednesday.

  • The Houston Astros placed right-hander Anthony Bass on the 15-day DL, retroactive to May 11, with a right intercostal strain, and recalled right-hander Josh Fields from Triple-A Oklahoma City, the team announced.

Roster Moves

  • The Marlins purchased the contract of Anthony DeSclafani from Double-A Jacksonville, according to a team announcement. The right-hander pitched six strong innings in his major league debut, allowing a pair of runs while also grabbing the victory.


Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti hopes to sign shortstop Hanley Ramirez to a contract extension before the 30-year-old hits free agency after the season. Colletti "made it a point to share that sentiment" with Ramirez' agent, Adam Katz, according to the LA Times' Dylan Hernandez.
Free agent right-hander Todd Coffey impressed scouts in a showcase on Wednesday, according to sources who were in attendance. At least ten teams, including the Tigers, Mariners, Astros, Braves, Diamondbacks, Athletics andOrioles were in attendance to see Coffey, who expects to sign soon.

Coffey, who is coming back from Tommy John surgery after missing the last season and a half, hit 92 mph with his fastball and showed a good slider in the 83-84 mph range. He threw for scouts for the first time since surgery back in January, and appears to be moving towards signing a deal to join a team's bullpen.
