  • The Cincinnati Reds placed left-handed starter Tony Cingrani on the 15-day DL with shoulder tendinitis, the team announced. The Reds recalled right-handed prospect Curtis Partch from Triple-A Louisville to replace Cingrani.

Roster Moves

  • The Toronto Blue Jays made a series of moves on Thursday, purchasing the contract of Steve Tolleson from Triple-A Buffalo and recalling Anthony Gose, also from Triple-A, according to a team announcement. To make room on the roster, the Jays designated right fielder Moises Sierra for assignment and optioned Jonathan Diaz to Buffalo.
  • The Los Angeles Dodgers purchased the contract of Red Patterson from Triple-A Albuquerque and designated center fielder Nick Buss for assignment, the team announced. Patterson started the second leg of the Dodgers' doubleheader, going 4.2 innings and allowing one run on a pair of hits and three walks as the Dodgers won in 12 innings.
  • The Minnesota Twins recalled left-hander Kris Johnson from Triple-A Rochester, per a team announcement. Johnson pitched in the second leg of the Twins' doubleheader, going 4.1 scoreless innings, though he allowed four hits and six walks.



  • Rehab Assignments: Aroldis Chapman, Wandy Rodriguez
*Note: Many of these moves were temporary 26th-man call-ups for today's doubleheaders, which means those players were sent back to the minors following Thursday's games.
