MLB Daily Dish May 6: Yasiel Puig, Jason Giambi, Jeff Locke, Lorenzo Cain

Justin K. Aller

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

  • The Cleveland Indians placed designated hitter Jason Giambi on the 15-day DL, retroactive to May 4, with a strained right calf, the team announced. Catcher Yan Gomes was activated from the paternity list to fill the vacant roster spot.

Roster Moves

  • The San Francisco Giants recalled right-hander Jake Dunning from Triple-A Fresno while officially placing starter Matt Cain on the 15-day DL, the team announced. Dunning went two-thirds of an inning without getting charged with a run on Monday, though he allowed a pair of inherited runners to score, both via wild pitches.

Rumors

The two sides were ultimately unable to reach an agreement on a long-term deal, and instead came to terms on a one-year, $7.2 million contract for 2014 only. The Nationals acquired the right-hander in a trade with the Detroit Tigers in early December.
