- After the Mariners picked up Jacob Nottingham from the Milwaukee Brewers and then DFA’d him the next day in an odd series of roster moves, the Brewers then reacquired the catcher from Seattle for cash considerations. In his return to Milwaukee, Nottingham hit two home runs against the Angels, serving as one of the only positive storylines in the Brewers’ 16-4 loss.
- On today’s episode of bizarre baseball injuries, Oakland Athletics pitcher Jesus Luzardo is headed to the IL after fracturing his pinky from playing video games in the clubhouse before the A’s game on Saturday.
- Chicago Cubs reliever Pedro Strop has left the club for personal reasons, leaving his return uncertain.
- Los Angeles Dodgers RHP Dustin May has been placed on the 10-day IL with an arm injury after leaving his last start early due to discomfort and a sudden drop in velocity.
