After a Wednesday that saw several players across the majors go down due to injury, including Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton, Thursday cooled down a bit in that regard. Let's take a look at what made the most noise in the majors on April 10:


  • Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre has a mild Grade 1 strain, according to an MRI exam done on his left quadriceps muscle. (Via the Dallas Morning News' Evan Grant.) General manager Jon Daniels, who broke the news, also noted that the team would give its starting third baseman a few days before determining whether or not a DL move is necessary.

Roster Moves

  • One day after making a successful start for the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night, Trevor Bauer has been optioned to Triple-A Columbus, as expected.
  • The Indians also placed third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall on the paternity list, the team announced, recalling Justin Sellers from Triple-A Columbus to take his spot. Sellers, a 28-year-old utilityman, can play a variety of infield positions, including shortstop, third base and second base, but he owns a .199/.278/.301 career slash line.
  • The Kansas City Royals secured outright waivers for utility infielder Pedro Ciriaco, the team announced. Ciriaco reportedly accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Omaha. In 137 plate appearances with three teams last season, he posted a .224/.279/.336 slash line.




  • Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Bourn played a rehab game in Double-A Akron, finishing the game 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts and a walk.
  • Justin Upton and Jose Abreu each hit a pair of homers on Thursday night. The Braves fell to the Mets 6-4 despite Upton's offensive explosion, and the White Sox beat the Indians 7-3.
