Alex Avila (hamstring) could start his rehab assignment on Wednesday.

Avila was placed on the 15-day disabled list on April 24 because of a right hamstring injury. White Sox manager Robin Ventura said the catcher could be back ready for activation as early next week. Avila has seen action in 10 games this season.

Lions waived Casey Pierce.

Detroit has better tight ends ahead of him on the roster and had to make room for incoming signees. Pierce won't be a factor if he does sign with another franchise.

Lions waived Braxston Cave.

12 new undrafted free agents being signed put the Lions at 92 players on the roster, two over the maximum at this point. Cave was just far enough to lose his roster spot to said new players. He could catch on somewhere else but he is really nothing but a third center on a team.

Chiefs waived Cameron Gordon.

Gordon had signed in the offseason with the Chiefs but is now being shown the door to make room for incoming rookie draft picks and UDFA. He could catch on somewhere but he was only on a futures contract with the Chiefs.
