Matt Shoemaker has been optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Shoemaker was a revelation as a rookie in 2014, but he has disappointed since. He is 1-4 with a 9.15 ERA in five starts in 2016, but if he can get things figured out in Triple-A he could be back up before long.

Craig Gentry (back) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Gentry was in a platoon with Rafael Ortega in left field, but Shane Robinson will fill that role with Gentry out. Gentry has struggled in limited opportunities the last two seasons, and he may not get his job back if Robinson hits while Gentry is out.
