Marlins send Anthony DeSclafani back down
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Marlins optioned pitcher Anthony DeSclafani to Triple-A New Orleans Friday, to open up a spot on the active roster.

DeSclafani was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans last week, but did not appear in any games. He was simply called up to provide a fresh arm in the bullpen, and will likely return to New Orleans' rotation. 

DeSclafani has a 2.82 ERA in 38 1/3 innings at Triple-A, but allowed 20 runs in 24 1/3 innings over five starts with the Marlins.

Chase Whitley heading back to bullpen
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The addition of veteran Chris Capuano to the rotation for the Yankees has kicked Chase Whitley out of it and sent him to the bullpen.

Whitley is coming off his strongest start, a six-inning shutout performance against Texas on Tuesday. But that came in the wake of several duds, so apparently the die was cast. He is 4-3 with a 4.60 ERA on the year.

The Nationals recalled infielder Zach Walters from Triple-A Syracuse Wednesday, and are putting him in the lineup for Friday's game against the Reds.

According to the Washington Post, Walters is likely to see a majority of the playing time at second base against right-handed pitchers as part of a platoon with Danny Espinosa. Walters hit 12 of his 15 home runs in Triple-A from the left side of the plate.
