Jim Callis of Baseball America reports that the Red Sox have signed first-round pick OF Andrew Benintendi.
Benintendi will receive a bonus of $3,590,400, which equals the full slot value for the No. 7 overall pick. The 20-year-old is highly-regarded for his all-around skills and is expected to stick in center field for the long-term.
Jorge Soler (ankle) went 0-for-3 with an RBI groundout Monday in his first minor league rehab game with Triple-A Iowa.
"He looked good," said Iowa manager Marty Pevey. "He made a great catch down the right-field line in the bullpen and he got his at-bats in, and we'll build on today's game." Assuming Soler feels good, he's expected to play seven to nine innings on Tuesday and get four at-bats. He's on track to join the Cubs this weekend. Soler has been sidelined for about a month with a left ankle sprain.
The Twins have promoted prospect right-hander Jose Berrios to Triple-A Rochester.
Berrios earned the promotion after posting a 3.08 ERA and 92/24 K/BB ratio in 90 2/3 innings across 15 starts with Double-A Chattanooga. The 21-year-old was ranked as the No. 36 prospect in the game by Baseball America coming into the season and he could be knocking on the door for his major league debut before long.
Kris Medlen (elbow) allowed two runs over 3 2/3 innings Monday in a minor league rehab start with Triple-A Omaha.
Medlen, who is working his way back from Tommy John surgery, gave up four hits (including two home runs) while walking none and striking out none. It was his first start in Triple-A after posting a 5.63 ERA and 7/2 K/BB ratio in eight innings over two outings with Double-A Northwest Arkansas. He's on track to join the Royals by mid-July, though it's unclear how he'll be used.
Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) went 0-for-3 with a strikeout Monday in his first minor league rehab game with High-A Tampa.
Ellsbury served as the DH on Monday, but he's expected to play center field on Tuesday. The tentative plan calls for him to be activated on Friday. Ellsbury has been sidelined since May 19 with a right knee sprain.
Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout Monday in his return to action against the Astros.
Cain didn't start Sunday due to a lingering hamstring issue, but he felt good enough to serve as the DH on Monday. He might not be completely out of the woods yet, but it's a good sign.
Jenrry Mejia struck out two batters in a scoreless inning Monday with Triple-A Las Vegas.
It was his first appearance with Triple-A after making two scoreless outings with the Mets' Gulf Coast League affiliate. Mejia is eligible to return from his 80-game PED suspension on July 7. He's likely to set up for Jeurys Familia upon his return.
The Yankees have moved Adam Warren to the bullpen.
Warren is the odd-man out now that Ivan Nova is back from the disabled list. It's an expected move, though CC Sabathia is probably more deserving to lose his rotation spot. Warren has a solid 3.59 ERA and 54/26 K/BB ratio in 82 2/3 innings over 14 starts this season.
