Manager Buck Showalter didn't dismiss idea of six man rotation when Johan Santana is ready.
Do they Orioles even have six pitchers that are worth being in a major league starting rotation? That perspective combined with the fact that Santana's workload will be heavily monitored make the idea of a six-man rotation in Baltimore a very logical one. Santana's value lies solely in AL-only formats at this time, but could progress to becoming worthy of a spot start here and there once we get a feel for how far into a game the former CY Young will be allowed to go.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Angels recalled RHP Cam Bedrosian from Triple-A Salt Lake.
Mike Morin has been mediocre (putting it nicely) working in middle-relief for the Angels this season, posting a 6.00 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and a 13/5 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 20 appearances. Relief Pitcher Cam Bedrosian has been recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake, where he has posted a 3.15 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 27/5 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 20 innings pitched, to take Morin's spot in the bullpen.

Wilson Ramos is not in the Nationals starting lineup on Sunday.
This appears to be a routine day off for the Nationals starting Catcher (nothing out of the ordinary in a Sunday afternoon game), but the timing may provide Ramos an opportunity to break out of the mini-slump that he's in. After stringing together a 19-game hit-streak, Ramos has gone 0-for-11 in his last three games. Jose Lobaton, who is 1-for-8 in his career against opposing starting pitcher Aaron Harang, will get the start in Ramos' absence. Analysis: Brad Costilo
