Diamondbacks' Tuffy Gosewisch suffers jammed left knee


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Diamondbacks catcher Tuffy Gosewisch suffered a jammed left knee on a play at first base in Wednesday's game against the Cardinals, the team announced.

Gosewisch appeared to trip over the bag at first base while trying to beat a tag, and fell to the ground, where he was holding his knee and grimacing in pain. He had to be helped to the dugout and finished the night 0 for 3.

"It looks OK," manager Chip Hale said of the knee, per FOX Sports Arizona. "He will have an MRI tomorrow. We'll have to make a decision Friday."

The Diamondbacks' only other catcher on the active roster is Jordan Pacheco, who replaced Gosewisch in the game. If Gosewisch needs to miss an extended period of time, Jarrod Saltalamacchia is an option at Triple-A after being signed earlier this month.

Orioles catcher Matt Wieters catching every other day


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Orioles catcher Matt Wieters is still working his way through a rehab assignment, but will only be behind the plate every other day, according to MLB.com.

Wieters is building back his stamina before he catches on consecutive days. 

"And it's going to be a slow process. I've sort of come to terms with that, it's not going to be going back to catching four, five days in a row," Wieters said. "It's how I feel. The every other [day] feels good now and as soon as that little soreness that we have in between is gone, we will start by picking up a ball the day after I catch and go from there. Every other day is better than not playing at all for me right now."

Wieters was able to catch a full game on Tuesday for Double-A Bowie and will catch Thursday and Saturday.

"I'm ready to go," he said. "Yesterday, I was able to get a little bit of a heartbeat going playing under the lights at Bowie. I've been waiting for almost a year now to get back out there."


Blue Jays' Russell Martin shifts to second base Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin saw two innings at second base on Wednesday, the second time in his career he's manned the postition, MLB.com reports.

"We had talked about it a couple of weeks ago," Martin said of his conversations with manager John Gibbons about playing second. "We had another situation where we were a little bit short on the bench. I always knew that it was a possibility, and I think he even asked me a couple of days ago, too, in a situation kind of like that. So, it wasn't really that much of a surprise, and I know I can play in the field. I played there for a long time, so I've had plenty of reps over there and it's kind of like riding a bike. Once you get out there, just play the game."

Martin played the first eight innings of the game behind the plate but shifted to second base after Ryan Goins was removed for a pinch-hitter. He went 2 for 5 and scored a run in his team's 5-3, 10-inning loss to the White Sox.
