Daniel Gossett (R) Headshot

Gossett was named the starting pitcher for Thursday's game against the Astros, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

With Jharel Cotton (finger) unable to take his next turn in the rotation until Saturday due to a lingering blister, Gossett had his scheduled start pushed up to fill the void. While the 24-year-old is coming off back-to-back quality starts, he's now set to face one of the best offenses in baseball when he toes the rubber against the Astros.

Álex Reyes (R) Headshot

Reyes (elbow) was moved to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday.

The Cardinals transferred Reyes in order to make room for Alex Mejia on the 40-man roster. Reyes underwent Tommy John surgery this February and will miss the entirety of the 2017 season.
6:31 pm (EST)
Mason Melotakis (L) Headshot

Melotakis cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Melotakis compiled a 2.42 ERA and 31 strikeouts in 26 innings of relief with Double-A Chattanooga this season. His velocity saw a dip after he was promoted to Triple-A, which could be problematic when taking into account his injury history. He's still only 25-years-old, and he he's got the stuff to be a decent bullpen arm if he's able to stay healthy.

Pat Light (R) Headshot

The Mariners outrighted Light to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

The transaction opens up a 40-man roster spot for the Mariners, though the team has yet to announce a corresponding move. Light, 26, was plucked off waivers from the Pirates on July 17 and was lit up for four runs in one inning during his lone appearance with the Tacoma.
6:30 pm (EST)
Matt Boyd (L) Headshot

Boyd will be recalled from Triple-A Toledo to start one game of Saturday's doubleheader with the Indians, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Boyd, who was banished to the minors on June 2, will serve as the 26th man in the doubleheader, meaning he'll likely head back to Toledo once the twin bill is completed. Jordan Zimmermann is in line to start the other half of the doubleheader. Since moving to Triple-A, Boyd has performed admirably, albeit against lower-caliber competition. In five starts, he's compiled a 3.00 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 32:8 K:BB over 27 innings.
6:27 pm (EST)
Alex Bregman (R) Headshot

Bregman is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Athletics, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

With a .303/.410/.515 line over the Astros' past nine games, Bregman seems to be heating up after a sluggish start to the season, but he'll get a breather Wednesday. Marwin Gonzalez slots in at third base, batting seventh in the order.
6:22 pm (EST)
Aledmys Diaz (R) Headshot

Diaz was sent down by the Cardinals on Wednesday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Diaz started the past 13 games before hitting the bench for Tuesday's contest. After another day out of the lineup for Wednesday's contest, the team announced that Diaz would be optioned to Triple-A Memphis with Alex Mejia taking his place on the big-league team. Thus far in 2017, Diaz is hitting .260/.293/.396 with seven home runs and 20 RBI. Even though he has been struggling, this move comes as a surprise, but the 26-year-old will likely be back with the team in the near future after getting reps at Memphis.
6:22 pm (EST)
Brad Boxberger (R) Headshot

Boxberger (back) could be activated from the disabled list as early as Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Boxberger came through his last rehab appearance with no issues, and as long as there is no lingering soreness come Thursday, it sounds like the 29-year-old could rejoin the Rays' bullpen for their series finale with the Pirates.
6:18 pm (EST)
Austin Romine (R) Headshot

Romine will start at first base and bat sixth Wednesday against the White Sox, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

Romine might not be in store for an everyday role with Matt Holliday (illness) hitting the disabled list Wednesday, but he'll certainly benefit from all of Holliday, Starlin Castro (hamstring) and Aaron Hicks (oblique) sustaining injuries within the last week. He'll draw his third consecutive start Wednesday and projects to see time at either catcher, first base or DH until the Yankees regain some health.
