The Rays announced on Monday that they were the second baseman Joey Wendle on the 10th – Day injured list due to a tense left Achilles tendon and recalled Christian Arroyo of Triple-A Durham in its place. Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, who first reported the moves, Tweets said Wendle had a "moderate" load that the player himself described as "not too bad". Wendle does not know how long He will be deferred until he tests the injured leg in a few days. 28-year-old Wendle finished fourth in AL Rookie of the Year in 2018 after hitting 0.3300 / 0.354 / 0.435 with seven homers, 33 doubles, six triples and 16 stolen bases. The Tampa Bay infield has plenty of depth between Brandon Lowe Daniel Robertson and the newly retired Arroyo, though Wendle was quietly one of the team's better all-rounders in 2018.

- The Blue Jays announced that they had placed Clayy Richard on the 10-day IL due to a stress reaction in his left knee. In a similar move, right-handed Sean Reid-Foley was recalled by Triple-A and will begin the game tonight for Toronto. The Jays did not provide a timetable for Richard's return, but a stress reaction has the potential to hide him for a considerable period of time. In Reid-Foley, Toronto gets another look at one of his more promising young arms. The 23-year-old was the team's second round in 2014 and fought last season with a combined 3.26 ERA at 10.5 K / 9 against 3.4 BB / 9 in 129 2/3 innings between Double-A and triple-A.
- Beyond this measure, the Jays unveiled a comprehensive series of medical updates on Monday afternoon. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. began this weekend to take some thugs in extended spring training games, Tweets Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet. He still has to get back into his routine at the third base and participate in some rehab games before he appears as an option at the MLB level. Scott Mitchell of TSN, Tweets who will throw Clay Buchholz tomorrow, might start on April 7 with Triple-A Buffalo, suggesting that the veteran will be pretty soon on his way to his new club is as later. Ryan Tepera and Ryan Borucki now hold foundation meetings and could return until the end of the month. Bud Norris's timeline is less concrete, ever Shi Davidi of Sportsnet. Norris still throws in the 90-91 mph range – far south of his usual mid-90s heat. He got a late start when he signed in mid-March, so he can extend his arm strength without a specific deadline.
- David O'Brien of The Athletic Tweets that the Braves plan to make Southpaw active, AJ Minter on Thursday – the first day, where he is entitled. (Minter's IL stint was backdated for a maximum of three days at the start of the season.) Mike Foltynewicz was admitted to rotation on April 14, after making a few rehab trips, adding 'O'. Brien added. Right-Handed Darren O'Day is unfortunately closed for a few weeks due to forearm problems. With this update it seems to be difficult for veteran O & # 39; Day to finish before the end of the month. O & # 39; Day missed the majority of the 2018 season due to an overstretched elbow.
