The San Francisco Giants announced Monday they will be recalling eight players from the minors on Tuesday prior to a game at San Diego, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The following players will be brought up from various levels of the minors: Infielders Nick Noonan and Ehire Adrianza; outfielders Francisco Peguero and Juan Perez; relievers George Kontos, Jake Dunning and Heath Hembree; and catcher Johnny Monell.

Blue Jays left-handed relief pitcher Juan Perez is expected to head to the team's spring training complex in Dunedin Monday, the National Post reports. Perez will undergo an MRI on his injured elbow after he suffered a torn ulnar collateral ligament Friday. The 34-year-old Perez appears likely to need Tommy John surgery to correct his injury. Should that be the case, he would likely be out until at least August of next season and possibly longer.
