UPDATES & NEWS
Outfielder Randal Grichuk was called up from Triple-A Memphis on Sunday night.
Grichuk is known for being the player the Angels selected ahead of Mike Trout back in the 2009 (24th overall). The 22-year old has had his ups and downs as he has made his way through the minors, those ups and downs should continue as his time up with the big league club will likely be short lived, so do not overbid on him in your NL-only leagues.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Rays designated P Grant Balfour for assignment.
There's no word as to why Balfour was DFA'd here as he's pitched pretty well so far, especially for a guy who had to leave the team during spring training to help take care of his ailing father. He did hit a bump in the road Saturday when he allowed three earned runs in two-thirds of an inning, but before that, he had made five appearances, pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed two hits with no runs. The Rays will likely give some reason for the move, but look for Balfour to pick up with another team fairly quickly. Analysis: Howard Bender
