Giants: Leadoff hitter Nori Aoki left the game against the Dodgers after getting hit by a pitch. Aoki apparently was hit in the foot by Carlos Frias’s second pitch. He ran the bases and scored before leaving in the bottom half of the first.
Marlins: Recalled LHP Justin Nicolino from Class AAA New Orleans to start Saturday in his major league debut against Cincinnati. Nicolino replaced RHP Tom Koehler, who was scratched with neck and back problems.
Orioles: Activated RHP Kevin Gausman off the 15day disabled list and selected RHP Mychal Givens from Class AA Bowie. Baltimore optioned RHPs Mike Wright and Tyler Wilson to Class AAA Norfolk.
Rays: Starter Erasmo Ramirez left the game against the Indians in the fourth inning with a strained right groin.
Royals: RHP Aaron Brooks is rejoining the staff, and RHP Yohan Pino is going back to Class AAA Omaha.
Yankees: Willie Randolph was overjoyed. Mel Stottlemyre was simply stunned. The former New York stars were honored with plaques in Monument Park — Randolph’s expected and Stottlemyre’s a well-kept secret.
