• Mets right-hander Matt Harvey took the next step in his rehabilitation from right elbow surgery, increasing his throwing distance from 90 to 120 feet. Harvey said Friday he feels great and the target date for throwing off a mound is June 10. The right-hander had Tommy John surgery Oct. 22.

• The Twins reinstated outfielder Aaron Hicks from the 7-day disabled list. Hicks suufered a concussion when he crashed into the center-field wall against the Los Angeles Dodgers on May 1.

• Alex Wood is being moved to the bullpen by the Braves, for at least for a week. Wood had been scheduled to start Sunday against the Chicago Cubs but instead will become Atlanta's second left-handed reliever in addition to Luis Avilan.

• The Angels recalled infielder Efren Navarro from Triple-A Salt Lake City and moved struggling left-hander Hector Santiago to the bullpen. Acquired from the Chicago White Sox in the offseason, Santiago is 0-6 with a 5.19 ERA in seven starts.

• Jay Bruce was on hand to greet his Cincinnati teammates when they returned home Friday. The Reds right fielder wasn't able to travel with them to Boston after arthroscopic surgery Monday to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. He is expected to miss about a month.

• The Athletics placed reliever Ryan Cook on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right forearm, sent struggling starter Dan Straily to Triple-A Sacramento and called up relievers Fernando Rodriguez and Joe Savery.

• The Phillies selected the contract of infielder Reid Brignac from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
