The move fills a need for a bullpen that had just three right-handers in Philadelphia. Solano "wasn't great getting off the plane (Thursday)," per manager Gabe Kapler, but the Giants didn't give an initial timetable for his return. For now they can cover for him at second base, with Tommy La Stella, Wilmer Flores and Mauricio Dubon all on the active roster. Kapler said the Giants wanted another right-handed arm against a righty-heavy Marlins lineup, and also felt they were short in the bullpen on the last road trip. New York Mets

Hoerner struggled in the batters box last season, where he recorded a .222 batting average, .571 OPS, 13 RBI and 24 hits in 108 at-bats (48 games). But this past spring, Hoerner slashed .364/.396/.659 while recording two home runs, 11 RBI, eight runs scored and 16 hits in 44 at-bats (17 games). Despite these solid numbers, the Cubs optioned him to the minors and had David Bote start at second base instead.Detroit Tigers

Acuña first injured himself diving back to the first base bag on a pickoff attempt in Sunday Night Baseball‘s win over the Chicago Cubs. While he would play out the rest of the frame for the Braves, including scoring a run in an impressive ninth game in a row, he was removed from the game after sliding head first into home. Even if he is not on the IL, it does not feel like he is playing.

Turnbull's best pitch was his slider, which he used for 21 of his 61 total offerings. It also generated six of his eight swings-and-misses, as well as four of his 10 called strikes. Only five pitches were needed in the top of the fifth, including a three-pitch strikeout — capped off by a slider — for Turnbull's final out.New York Yankees
