After designating Luetge earlier this week, the Angels have now sent him back to Triple-A Salt Lake. The 29-year-old lefty has not made an appearance in the majors this year, but holds a career 4.35 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 7.5 K/9 across 89.0 innings of relief in the bigs since 2012.
Miller has apparently been dealing with discomfort in his right pointer finger since banging it into the ground last month. However, at this juncture, that simply seems like a reason to get the struggling righty out of the rotation and let him attempt to regroup. Through 10 starts this year, Miller has pitched to a dreadful 7.09 ERA while surrendering 10 homers and 29 walks across 45.2 innings. He is 1-6 with only one quality start which, interestingly enough, came against the team that dealt him to Arizona this past offseason in exchange for a slew of young talent.
Smith has been out all season due to a torn LCL in his right knee, but he appears to be very close to joining the Brewers' bullpen. The towering southpaw put together a stellar 2015 for the Crew, posting a 2.70 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 12.9 K/9 across 63.1 innings of relief.
Belisle has been out of the mix in the Nationals' bullpen since April 26th, but appears to be close to returning. The veteran reliever had been pitching well before he went on the DL, posting a 1.50 ERA and 1.17 WHIP across 6.0 innings.
Peralta appears to be moving right along without any hiccups in his rehab assignment. The Cardinals will see where the veteran shortstop is at in the process following this weekend and could activate him from the DL as soon as next week.
Phegley has been on the shelf with a knee injury since May 9th, but he is now ready to rejoin the A's. The backup backstop has gone 10-for-37 with two doubles and three RBI across 13 games in the bigs this season.
Calixte did appear in two games for the Royals last season, but has spent all of 2016 with Double-A Northwest Arkansas to this point. The 24-year-old infielder will now head to Triple-A Omaha after hitting .295 with 11 extra-base hits and 14 steals over 38 games with the Naturals.
Torres is a Dominican-born infielder that has been in the Royals' system since the age of 17. Now 23, he will make his way up to Triple-A for the first time. Torres has put up a .668 OPS with nine stolen bases across 41 games at Double-A Northwest Arkansas this season.
