Injury Moves and Notes: July 19th

By on 7/19/2014 06:15:00 PM

Not got time to check on all those injury-related moves and recovering players? No problem, we've got you covered here:


Colorado Rockies: activated RHP Eddie Butler and optioned him to Double-A Tulsa. The Rockies rotation has been devastated by injury but Butler got knocked around for six earned runs in last night's rehab start for the Colorado Springs Sky Sox, so perhaps that gave the team enough concern about their prospect to hold him down.

Detroit Tigers: transferred RHP Joel Hanrahan to the 60-day DL. The Tigers recently indicated that they were unsure about Hanrahan's timetable for return and this move doesn't affect any return date in any case, as he has already been on the DL for more than 60 days.

Miami Marlins: transferred 2B Rafael Furcal to the 60-day DL. Furcal (hamstring) only went on the DL on June 22nd so this move means the Marlins won't be playing the veteran infielder again until at least the end of August, if at all.

San Diego Padres: activated RHP Nick Vincent from the 15-day DL. Vincent has been on the DL since mid-June with shoulder fatigue.

Rehab roundup

The Boston Red Sox sent catcher Ryan Lavarnway to their Gulf Coast League affiliate on Friday. Lavarnway played both Friday and Saturday, playing DH in the first game and first base in the second and collecting two hits and a walk in six plate appearances.

Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso played for the team's Rookie league affiliate in a 5-1 victory. Alonso collected two singles and two RBI in his five at-bats. Meanwhile, Jedd Gyorko joined the Triple A El Paso Chihuahuas for his rehab assignment.

The injury-ravaged Texas Rangers sent left-hander Joe Ortiz on rehab to the AZL Rangers, where he pitched a scoreless inning, giving up one hit.

Phillies catcher Wil Nieves started his rehab with the Reading Fightin Phils by going 0-5 as the DH. He is in their lineup at catcher on Saturday evening.
