In this MLB News and Notes segment, I will be giving occasional reports on the latest news and rumors throughout the MLB.  I also will try to tweet news and rumors as I see them, so feel free to follow me on Twitter: @ajnicholsIBI.

Here are the stories from Sunday, April 20th.

Top Stories

  • Yankees starter Ivan Nova was placed on the 15-day DL with a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.  The injury is believed to require Tommy Johnsurgery.

Tribe News

  • Francona noted that the plan remains to activate veteran DH Jason Giambi prior to Monday’s game against Kansas City.  A corresponding move is not yet known.

News and Notes

  • The Twins claimed outfielder Sam Fuld off of waivers.  Fuld was designated for assignment by Oakland.  To make room for their new outfielder, Minnesota designated fellow outfield Darin Mastroianni for assignment.
  • According to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Giants are unlikely to acquire infield help, despite the fact that second baseman Marco Scutaro still isn’t able to play in extended Spring Training games because of his back injury.

Detroit has made some real head scratching moves this year....Fister trade...then using a piece from that to get Alex then just cut him two weeks later.

Maybe we can deal them Johnson? lol
