• Reds right fielder Jay Bruce had surgery Monday to repair torn cartilage in his left knee and will be sidelined for about a month. Bruce was scratched from the starting lineup Sunday because of a sore knee but pinch hit and struck out during a 4-3, 10-inning win over Milwaukee. He had tests Sunday night that detected the tear.

• The Indians placed designated hitter Jason Giambi on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right calf muscle. Giambi was removed from Saturday night's game against the White Sox after grounding into a double play in the fourth inning. Giambi began the season on the disabled list after breaking a rib during training camp.

• Outfielder Yasiel Puig wasn't listed in the starting lineup for the Dodgers' series opener against the Nationals a day after he slammed into a wall trying to make a game-saving catch. The Dodgers said Puig passed a concussion test after the game and that he would be day-to-day.

• The Nationals reinstated outfielder Scott Hairston from the 15-day disabled list and optioned outfielder Steven Souza Jr. to Triple-A Syracuse. Hairston had been sidelined since April 6 with a strained side muscle.

• Rays minor league pitcher Steve Geltz was suspended 50 games by the commissioner's office after a second positive drug test. Geltz was pitching for Triple-A Durham. The 26-year-old right-hander made two relief appearances for the Angels in 2012. Geltz was penalized after testing positive for a drug of abuse.
