Rays announced Monday that they have placed second baseman Joey Wendle on 10-day damage list due to a strained left hamstring and recalled Christian Arroyo from Triple-A Durham in his place. Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, who first reported the movements, tweets that Wendle has a "moderate" load, which the player himself described as "not too bad". Wendle does not know how long he should pay tribute until he tests the injured leg in a few days. The 28-year-old Wendle finished fourth in the AL Rookie of the Year, which voted in 2018 after hitting .300 / .354 / .435 with seven homers, 33 doubles, six triples and 16 chair bases. Tampa Bay infield has plenty of depth between Brandon Lowe Daniel Robertson and the newly-called Arroyo, but Wendle was one of the team's better all-round players in 2018.

- Blue Jays announced that they had leftyy Clayton Richard on the 10-day IL because of a stress reaction in his left knee. In a similar move, right hand Sean Reid-Foley has been revoked from Triple-A and will start tonight's game for Toronto. Jays did not provide a timeline for Richard's return, but a stress response has the potential to keep him sidelined for a significant period. In Reid-Foley, Toronto gets a new look at one of its more promising young weapons; The 23-year-old was the team's second round in 2014 and stood for a combined 3.26 ERA with 10.5 K / 9 against 3.4 BB / 9 in 129 2/3 innings between Double-A and Triple-A last season.
- In addition to this feature, Jays revealed a comprehensive range of medical updates Monday afternoon. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. began taking some at-bats in extended Spring Training games over the weekend, tweets Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet. He still needs to get back to his third-base routine and play in some rehab games before emerging as an opportunity at MLB level. TSN Scott Mitchell tweets that Clay Buchholz will throw tomorrow and be able to start for Triple-A Buffalo on April 7, signaling that veteran law is about to join his new club rather than later. Ryan Tepera and Ryan Borucki throws open sessions in the meantime and could return at the end of the month. Bud Norris timeline is less concrete, per. Shi Davidi from Sportsnet. Norris still throws into the 90-91 mph area – well south of his usual mid 90's heat. He got a late start by signing in mid-March, so he will continue to build arm strength without a set return date in focus yet.
- David O & Brien of The Athletic tweets Braves plans to active southpaw AJ Minter on Thursday – the first day he is entitled. (Minter's IL stint was returned a maximum of three days at the start of the season.) Mike Foltynewicz was able to participate in the rotation as soon as April 14 after making a couple of rehab excursions, adds O & # 39; Brien. Right-hander Darren O & # 39; Day is unfortunately closed for a few weeks due to ongoing underarm issues. Considering this update, it looks as though it will be difficult for veteran Day & # 39; s to be ready before the end of the month. The day missed most of the 2018 season due to a hyperextended elbow.
