Markieff Morris was detained Thursday at Philadelphia International Airport because of suspected marijuana in his bag.

Braves sent RHP Jim Johnson on a rehab assignment to Single-A Rome.

Johnson has not pitched since May 8th and has largely served as a setup guy for the Braves this season as he has five holds on the year. His ERA and WHIP are both quite large however, so even in holds leagues he would likely be a detriment to your fantasy team.

Manager Craig Counsell said he will likely have long leash with Wily Peralta Thursday night with bullpen taxed after 13-inning game last night.

The leash better be very long for Peralta as he has posted a 6.99 ERA and 1.92 WHIP in nine starts this season. If anything, this news presents a stacking opportunity against him as he has allowed a 1.067 OPS to right-handed batters on the season and a .924 OPS to lefties.

Yankees activated DH Alex Rodriguez from the 15-day disabled list.

Rodriguez last played for the Yankees May 3rd and had struggled mightily to that point by batting .187 with five home runs for the season. He had swatted three home runs in his past five games before being injured however, so he will look to continue where he left off. He is slated to start tonight for the Yankees and bat fifth.

Shreve has struggled with the long ball this season as he has surrendered seven home runs in only 19 innings. Accordingly, he has just a 1.11 WHIP but a 5.21 ERA. Richard Bleier has been called up to take his spot. He has not pitched in the big leagues, but owns a career ERA of 3.98 and a WHIP of 1.27 in the minors.

Chris Capuano was placed on the 15-day disabled list. He felt the inflammation again in Wednesday night’s outing, so now the plan is to shut him down for a few days and treat the symptoms.

Capuano had taken several days off before pitching in yesterday's game for the Brewers but that rest was not enough to make the pain subside. As a result, he will again take several days off.
