  • The Texas Rangers placed left-hander Pedro Figueroa on the 15-day DL with left elbow inflammation, Rangers VP of Communications John Blake announced. Figueroa has allowed seven runs (four earned) in nine innings across 10 appearances this season.

Roster Moves

  • The Boston Red Sox optioned struggling outfielder Daniel Nava to Triple-A Pawtucket, recalling right-hander Alex Wilson from Triple-A in a corresponding move, the team announced. Nava, who has posted a .149/.240/.269 slash line this season, hit .303 with an .831 OPS last season. However, the Red Sox didn't cut him any slack due to his prior success, demoting him after just 75 plate appearances.
  • The Miami Marlins recalled right-handed reliever Carter Capps from Triple-A New Orleans, according to a team announcement. Capps struggled in 53 appearances with the Seattle Mariners last season, posting a 5.49 ERA along with a 1.63 WHIP, but he'll have an opportunity to improve in the more pitcher-friendly NL East.



  • Rehab assignments: Mike Minor and Gavin Floyd (Atlanta Braves), Jacob Turner (Miami Marlins)
  • Texas Rangers left-hander Martin Perez fired his second consecutive shutout, extending his scoreless innings streak to 26 innings in the Rangers' 3-0 win over the Oakland A's.
  • Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager and Baltimore Orioles outfielder Nelson Cruz each homered twice and drove in five runs in their teams' victories.
