Wil Myers (wrist) hit off a tee on Friday.
It's the first time he's done so since fracturing his right wrist back in late May. Myers is expected back in mid-August if all goes well.
Marlins recalled C J.T. Realmuto from Triple-A New Orleans.
He'll serve as the Marlins' third catcher. Realmuto had four hits in 20 at-bats earlier this season for the big club.
Marlins optioned RHP Anthony DeSclafani to Triple-A New Orleans.
DeSclafani was up for nearly a week but didn't appear in a game. He'll return to a 2.82 ERA at Triple-A.
Astros transferred RHP Matt Albers from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.
The move clears space on the 40-man roster for Gregory Petit. Albers has been out since late April with right shoulder tendinitis and isn't close to returning.
Astros optioned RHP Anthony Bass to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Bass allowed 10 earned runs over nine relief innings after being activated from the DL earlier this month. He should get another chance later this season.
Astros purchased the contract of INF Gregorio Petit from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
The Astros needed some infield depth with Marwin Gonzalez (hamstring) banged up. Petit hasn't played in the majors since 2009 but was batting .297/.340/.457 with 10 homers at Triple-A.
David Ortiz is back in the Red Sox' lineup Friday.
Big Papi didn't play Thursday after exiting Wednesday's game with back spasms, but he's made a quick recovery. The designated hitter will be facing David Price, who he had some harsh words for last month after Price hit him with a pitch.
Chase Whitley has been moved to the Yankees' bullpen.
Chris Capuano is taking Whitley's spot in the rotation. Left-handed batters are hitting .319/.360/.482 against Whitley this season, as he's always been better suited for a relief role.
