Kevin Plawecki (hand) will begin a rehab assignment on Thursday for Triple-A Las Vegas.

Plawecki will be joined in Vegas by Hansel Robles, who will start a rehab assignment for a sprained right knee. The catcher has been out since April 13 because of a fractured hairline in his right hand, and the Mets recently acquired Devin Mesoraco in the Matt Harvey deal to help compensate for his loss. Assuming no setbacks he should be back near the end of May, and it will be interesting to see how New York splits Plawecki and Mesoraco's playing time going forward.

Pirates promoted RHP Jesus Liranzo to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Liranzo was excellent for Double-A Altoona; throwing 12 scoreless innings over nine appearances with 18 strikeouts in that time frame. He'll touch triple-digits with his fastball, and the breaking ball is just good enough to keep hitters from sitting on the pitch. He has a chance to pitch for Pittsburgh at some point before the season ends.
May 22 - 1:23 PM

Pirates released RHP Tyler Jones.

Jones appeared in 12 games for Triple-A Indianapolis this year, posting a 5.40 ERA over 16 2/3 innings with a 17/7 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
May 22 - 1:13 PM

Jorge Polanco (suspended) can begin a 20-game rehab assignment in the minor leagues starting on June 12.

Polanco will be able to play 20 games at the minor league level -- essentially a spring training for the shortstop -- before being eligible to return to the Twins on July 2, assuming there are no cancelled games beforehand. The 25-year-old shortstop was suspended for testing positive for the performance-enhancing drug Stanozolol in March. He should return to being Minnesota's regular shortstop once eligible to play.

Tim Lincecum (blister) allowed one run on two hits and a walk over two-plus innings of work in his latest rehab appearance with Triple-A Round Rock on Monday.

Lincecum allowed just a walk over his first two innings before allowing two hits to begin his third inning of work. The run scored after he was pulled from the game. Lincecum has reportedly topped out at 90 mph during his rehab stint and owns a shaky 6.48 ERA and 8/6 K/BB ratio over 8 1/3 innings. He's eligible to be activated from the 60-day disabled list, but he can stay on his rehab stint until June 6. That's the more realistic target at this time. Lincecum figures to join the Rangers' bullpen eventually, but expectations should be modest.

The Angels have promoted prospect outfielder Jo Adell to High-A Inland Empire.

It's a well-deserved promotion for the 2017 first-round pick. Adell mashed for Low-A Burlington to the tune of a .326/.398/.611 batting line with six homers and four steals over 25 games. The 19-year-old was ranked as the No. 46 prospect in the game by Baseball America back in January and he's done nothing to hurt that standing. He's one of the more exciting outfield prospects in the minors. Brandon Marsh, another promising outfield prospect for the Angels, was also recently promoted to High-A.
