Injuries

Roster Moves

  • The Detroit Tigers purchased the contract of left-hander Robbie Ray from Triple-A Toledo and optioned right-hander Jose Ortega to Triple-A, the team announced. Ray allowed one run across 5.1 innings on Tuesday, surrendering just five hits and a walk as he picked up his first big league win.

Rumors

The Pittsburgh Pirates reportedly offered top prospect Gregory Polanco a seven-year deal despite the fact that he has yet to reach the big leagues. According to Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan (who first reported the story), the contract would've guaranteed the young outfielder slightly less than $25 million, buying out all six year's of team control, as well as a free agent season. The deal would have also netted Pittsburgh three club options, which would have brought the total (were all exercised) to ten years and $50-$60 million.
