- was recalled from Triple-A Reno. Kieschnick made his Diamondbacks debut Thursday, starting in left field, and went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts.
- Cardinals ace
- threw a bullpen session and said his right knee feels good enough to allow him to make his scheduled start Sunday against Pittsburgh. He stretched his scoreless streak to 17 innings Tuesday but left a 3-0 win over the Mets after hyperextending his right knee.
- Yankees right-hander
- has decided to have season-ending Tommy John surgery for a partially torn elbow ligament. Nova left Saturday’s 16-1 loss at Tampa Bay in the fifth inning after allowing eight runs and eight hits, including four homers. An MRI revealed the injury.
