  • The Washington Nationals activated third-baseman Ryan Zimmerman from the 15-day DL and optioned Tyler Moore down to Triple-A Syracuse, the team announced. Zimmerman, who played left field for the first time in his career on Tuesday, hit a pair of doubles and drove in a run in his first game back.
  • The Houston Astros recalled first baseman Jon Singleton from Triple-A Oklahoma City and optioned Marc Krauss down to Triple-A, per a team announcement. Singleton registered his first career RBI on Tuesday when he drew a bases-loaded walk.
  • The San Diego Padres recalled Jesse Hahn from Double-A San Antonio, purchased the contract of Jason Lane from Triple-A El Paso, optioned Donn Roach down to Triple-A and placed left-hander Eric Stults on the bereavement list, per a team announcement.
  • The Cubs activated right-hander Hector Rondon from the paternity list, designated right-hander Jose Veras for assignment and activated catcher Eli Whiteside from Triple-A Iowa, according to a team announcement.


  • Angels outfielder Mike Trout left Tuesday's game after 1 1/2 innings with "mild back discomfort," according to's Alden Gonzalez. Trout reportedly didn't feel anything in his back while taking batting practice, but the issue apparently acted up again and was serious enough to force him to exit.
