The Rays placed Glasnow, who is 6-1 with an American League-leading 1.86 ERA, on the 10-day injured list and recalled infielder Andrew Velazquez from Triple-A Durham.

Glasnow, 25, exited Friday’s game against the visiting New York Yankees in the sixth inning due to what the team said then was right forearm tightness.

The Rays also activated recently acquired catcher Travis d’Arnaud, making room for him by sending catcher Nick Ciuffo to Durham.

—Veteran left-hander Madison Bumgarner’s contract with the San Francisco Giants allows him to put eight teams on his no-trade list, and he reportedly has done just that.

Bumgarner, who becomes a free agent after the season, has submitted this no-trade list to the Giants, according to Ken Rosenthal of the MLB Network: Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Houston Astros, Milwaukee Brewers, New York Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies and St. Louis Cardinals.

But Rosenthal said that doesn’t mean Bumgarner won’t wind up with one of those teams. Instead, his list gives him better control of where he could wind up and over his future as a free agent. Bumgarner is 2-4 with a 3.99 ERA in eight starts this season.

—The Oakland Athletics traded well-traveled right-hander Edwin Jackson to the Toronto Blue Jays for cash considerations.

If he makes an appearance with Toronto, it would be his 14th different team and would break the major league record he shares with Octavio Dotel. Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said Jackson could make his Toronto debut on Wednesday in San Francisco, according to Sportsnet.

Jackson, 35, who went 6-3 with a 3.33 ERA in 17 starts with Oakland last year, has started three games this season in the minor leagues.

—The Washington Nationals reinstated outfielder Juan Soto from the 10-day injured list.

Soto, who missed 10 games with back spasms, is batting .248 with six homers and 22 RBIs in 28 games. The 20-year-old reached base in 15 consecutive games (April 14-30) before going on the IL.

In a corresponding move, the Nationals optioned infielder Jake Noll to Triple-A Fresno.

—The Arizona Diamondbacks activated catcher Alex Avila from the injured list prior to their game against the Atlanta Braves.

Avila had been sidelined with a quadriceps injury suffered on April 5 while trotting around the bases after homering against the Boston Red Sox. He went on the injured list two days later.

Arizona optioned infielder Ildemaro Vargas to Triple-A Reno after Friday’s game to open up the roster spot.

—The Minnesota Twins placed left-hander Martin Perez on the paternity list and called up a pair of hurlers to bolster the staff in the meantime.

The Twins called up right-hander Kohl Stewart from Triple-A Rochester as Perez’s replacement on the 25-man roster and also recalled right-hander Tyler Duffey from Rochester as the 26th man for Saturday’s split doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers.

Perez, 28, is 5-0 with a 2.83 ERA this season, appearing in eight games and making five starts.
