Yankees announced that they have placed RHP Michael Pineda on the 15-day disabled.
This was bound to happen and the Yankees decided today was the day. Clayton Kerhsaw has missed over a month of action due to the same injury. Pineda, who is in the midst of serving a 10-game suspension for his use of pine tar, suffered the injury while throwing a simulated game on April 29th. He had been shut down since that game but it seems he'll need more time to recover. David Phelps has been filling in for Pineda since the pine tar incident.ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Paul Millsap does not need surgery on his shoulder, just rest.
After the Hawks were eliminated from the NBA Playoffs, it was reported he could need surgery on his sprained right shoulder. Millsap will head into the offseason as a free agent and he is reportedly undecided about how he will conduct his summer. He didn't play well in the playoffs, although it's tough to know how much the shoulder affected his play. Analysis: Spencer Silva
Blue Jays optioned RHP Scott Copeland to Triple-A Buffalo.
Copeland didn't pitch during his short stint back with the club, but recorded three scoreless innings in a previous stint earlier this month. At 27, he's not much of a prospect in spite of having strong success in the International League in 2015. He could eventually establish himself as a swingman for the Jays in the near future.
