The Los Angeles Dodgers put Kenta Maeda on the 10-day injured list after he hurt his left thigh, costing them one of their best starters in May.

Maeda gave up only three hits in 6 2/3 innings of a 2-0 win over the Padres on Wednesday. The right-hander is 5-2 in nine starts with a 3.52 ERA. He hasn't allowed a run in his last two starts.

The Dodgers called up infielder Matt Beaty and outfielder Kyle Garlick for the start of a series against the Reds on Friday.

Beaty is in his second stint with the Dodgers. He went 2-for-3 in a brief stint last month. Garlick, 27, will make his major-league debut.

 

Rays trade for catcher

The Tampa Bay Rays acquired journeyman catcher Erik Kratz in a trade with the San Francisco Giants.

Kratz, 38, hit .125 (4-for-32) in 15 games for San Francisco. He was designated for assignment Tuesday.

As part of the trade, the Giants agreed to send the Rays $471,613 to cover a majority of the $877,419 left in Kratz's $1.2 million, one-year contract. San Francisco will receive a player to be named or cash.

The Giants acquired Kratz in a March 24 trade with Milwaukee for minor-league infielder C.J. Hinojosa.

 

Guess who's back?

Twelve years later, Carlos Gomez is back in the New York Mets' lineup.

New York selected Gomez's contract from Triple-A Syracuse.

The Mets placed outfielder Michael Conforto on the seven-day injured list due to a concussion, and designated outfielder Keon Broxton for assignment. They recalled right-hander Paul Sewald from Syracuse.

Gomez, 33, an All-Star for Milwaukee in 2013-14, last played for the Mets when he was a rookie in 2007. They signed the outfielder to a minor-league deal in March, and he batted .270 with 22 RBI in 35 games for Syracuse.

 

Shortstop returns

The Washington Nationals activated shortstop Trea Turner from the 10-day injured list after placing starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez on the IL with a left hamstring strain.

Turner, 25, missed 38 games with a broken right index figure suffered April 2 against Philadelphia. He hit .357 with a double and two homers through the first four games of the season.

Sanchez, 35, (0-6, 5.10) was removed in the second inning of Thursday's start against the New York Mets with the hamstring strain.

Washington also optioned infielder Wilmer Difo to Triple-A Fresno and recalled right-hander Kyle McGowin from Fresno.
