Tigers place Perry on DL



The Tigers placed right-handed reliever Ryan Perry on the 15-day disabled list with bicipital tendonitis in his right shoulder and called up right-hander Enrique Gonzalez.

Perry threw a bullpen on Wednesday, but felt pain in his shoulder and was shut down, according to MLB.com's Jason Beck .

"His control has not been good," Tigers manager Jim Leyland told reporters. "And normally when you see a guy that had real good control early in the season all of a sudden kind of lost that control, there's usually a red flag there. There's usually a message there that something's not quite right."

Gonzalez, 29, was 4-5 with a 3.46 ERA as a starter for Triple-A Toledo.

McLouth out of game after collision


Simple physics -- Jason Heyward is 6-foot-5 and 235 pounds, Nate McLouth is 5-11, 180-pounds, when they collide someone's going to be hurt and it's no surprise which player left the game.

The ball bounced away from McLouth and to the wall and Gerardo Parra raced around the bases for an inside-the-park home run, giving the Diamondbacks a 2-1 lead in the eighth inning.

It was the first home run Peter Moylan had given up since opening day of 2008, a streak of 123 games. Moylan didn't allow a home run in 88 appearances last season.

UPDATE: McLouth has a headache and will be evaluated throughout the night, MLB.com's Mark Bowman Tweets. McLouth was seen by doctors before the Diamondbacks finished up the 2-1 victory.

Rest prescribed for Ellsbury


Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury needs more rest to recover from his four cracked ribs, a specialist told him on Wednesday. Ellsbury visited California's Kerlan-Jobe Orthopedic Clinic Wednesday to see Dr. Lewis Yocum.

"It sounds like Dr. Yocum, at least, preliminarily, thinks he needs a little bit more rest. We all want the chance to kind of make sure everybody is on the same page because we have not gotten anything official. We want to talk through it," Red Sox manager Terry Francona told reporters .

Ellsbury injured his ribs in early April in a collision with third baseman Adrian Beltre, and played just nine games this season, only three since the second week of April.

Lee, Astros heating up



Carlos Lee's 10th-inning grand slam, coupled with a Pirates loss, moved the Astros out of last place in the National League Central.

Lee, who entered June hitting just .206, has a hit in every game this month and is hitting .333 with four home runs and 12 RBIs this month.

It's not just Lee getting hot in Houston, Lance Berkman has improved his average 28 points this month and the Astros are 7-3 in June. Houston is now just a half-game behind the Brewers for fourth in the division.

Nats, Dunn talking extension


Adam Dunn told MLB.com's Bill Lasdon that his agent Greg Genske talked with the Nationals about a contract extension last week when the team was in Houston.

Dunn is a free agent after this season, but has stated he'd like to stay in Washington.

"The Nationals know how I feel about this place. I hope that something can be worked out," Dunn told Lasdon. "Again, I'm not in any hurry. It's probably No. 10 on my list of things to worry about."

More D.C. debuts


A day after the Nationals' top prospect debuted, the Pirates rolled out their top pitching prospect on Wednesday at Nationals Park.

Brad Lincoln won't exactly be garnering headlines across the country, going six innings, allowing five runs on seven hits and two walks. He struck out three and gave up a homer to Adam Dunn in the first inning.

Another Pirate prospect, outfielder Jose Tabata batted leadoff and was 2 for 4 with a walk and a run. Tabata left the game with a cramp in his right hamstring and was taken out as a precautionary measure.
