Recapping the news and scores for May 7:
The Braves will likely call up shortstop Diory Hernandez to take the place of Julio Teheran once Teheran is demoted (link). The rule says a player must remain at Triple-A for 10 days once demoted, so Brandon Hicks can't come back up yet, meaning Hernandez will probably get the call instead.
Marlins reliever Clay Hensley was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a rib contusion (link). Burke Badenhop gets the call to replace Hensley in Florida.
Mets starter Chris Young was scratched from his start on Saturday (link). He will have an MRI before a decision is made.
