MLB notebook: Mets' Harvey makes progress in rehab from surgery
• 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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
