Paul Fry Headshot

Fry owns an unimpressive 5.75 ERA and 1.48 WHIP through 12 combined relief appearances this season with Triple-A Tacoma and Norfolk.

The southpaw began the season with the Triple-A Tacoma, but made just one appearance before being designated for assignment by the Mariners. Fry was signed and recalled by the Orioles in late April, but never toed the rubber in his two days with the club. The 24-year-old's minor-league numbers are a bit misleading. He's had three rough outings that have account for 11 of his 13 runs allowed. Regardless, Fry's inconsistency hasn't helped his chances of being recalled any time soon.

Juan Minaya Headshot

The White Sox recalled Minaya from Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.

The right-hander owns a sparkling 1.23 ERA with 11 strikeouts and four walks in 10 appearances (14.2 innings) for Chicago's most advanced affiliate. Minaya, 26, probably will fill a mere bullpen depth role for the big club.
12:50 pm (EST)
Tyler Danish Headshot

The White Sox added Danish from Triple-A Charlotte as their 26th man for Friday's doubleheader.

Danish will start the second game of the twinbill. The 22-year-old boasts a 3.15 ERA in 45.2 innings over eight starts for Charlotte, but he's struck out only 23 and walked 13 there. He'll probably return to Triple-A after taking this turn.

Dylan Covey Headshot

The White Sox placed Covey on the 10-day disabled list Friday with a strained left oblique.

Covey was removed from his Tuesday outing by trainers after giving up four earned runs in 2.1 innings. The White Sox are calling up Tyler Danish from Triple-A Charlotte to start the second game of Friday's doubleheader but should provide an update on who'll fill in for subsequent outings.
12:44 pm (EST)
Matt Dermody Headshot

Dermody has allowed just one run over 10 appearances and 11.1 innings since returning to Triple-A Buffalo.

Dermody's one MLB appearance this season didn't go well -- he allowed five runs on four hits, including three homers while recording just one out April 16 against Baltimore. Despite proving to be an effective minor-league reliever since 2013, the righty has failed to make a positive impression in his limited major-league service over the past two years. Dermody will likely get another crack with the Jays once a hole opens in the team's bullpen.

Conor Sheary Headshot

Sheary garnered an assist in Thursday's Game 7 victory over Ottawa.

Sheary reinsertion into the lineup couldn't have come at a better time for the Penguins as his feed to Chris Kunitz gave them an early 1-0 lead in Thursday's double overtime thriller. The 24-year-old spent the previous two contests watching from the press box in favor of Josh Archibald, but may have retaken his spot in the lineup with his Game 7 performance -- although his inclusion for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals could be tied to the healthy of Patric Hornqvist (upper body). Sheary logged his highest ice time of the season (21:44) in addition to firing off four shots on goal and dishing out a pair of hits.

Rio Ruiz Headshot

Ruiz could continue to act as the Braves' primary third baseman even after Adonis Garcia (Achilles) returns from the disabled list, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Ruiz has impressed during his brief time with Atlanta, going 8-for-25 (.320) with a home run and four RBI. He does have eight strikeouts in that time, however, but the Braves are not ignoring the fact that he has a bit of development left. The thought is that Ruiz could platoon with Garcia once he is back in commission in order to play up both of their respective strengths, which could also bolster the Braves' bench in the process. Garcia has been pretty poor relative to the other third baseman in the league, so there's certainly a good chance that Atlanta gives Ruiz an extended look to see if he's their third baseman of the future.
12:26 pm (EST)
Tyler Naquin Headshot

Naquin received treatment on his injured back from the major-league trainers, and manager Terry Francona said he thinks the outfielder "is turning the corner and feeling better," Indians Insider reports.

Last year's third-place finisher in AL Rookie of the Year voting has had a disappointing 2017. Just seven games into the regular season, the Tribe sent the 26-year-old to Triple-A Columbus, essentially replacing him with spring's non-roster invitee Austin Jackson. Naquin was putting it together in Columbus (.396/.441/.528) before suffering a back ailment. However, even when he returns to full health, the MLB squad is unlikely to recall Naquin as they already have three left-handed bats on the roster.
12:24 pm (EST)
J.A. Happ Headshot

Happ (elbow) threw 56 pitches (39 strikes) over three innings in his first rehab start Thursday for High-A Dunedin.

The sidelined starter allowed three runs on seven hits while striking out three in his return to the mound. More importantly, Happ came away feeling good. He's scheduled to make another one or two rehab starts before rejoining the big-league club.
