Phillies sent RHP Jeff Manship outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Manship had been designated for assignment, but he cleared waivers and has decided to stay in the organization. The righty has posted a 6.65 ERA over 20 relief appearances for the Phils this season.

MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez reports that Cuban prospect Rusney Castillo will work out at shortstop in addition to center field during his showcase Saturday.

Castillo is generally viewed as an outfielder, but he played some in the infield in Cuba and will apparently try to show teams Saturday that he's capable of being used there in the majors. The 27-year-old is generating plenty of buzz with his terrific speed and occasional pop. Sanchez lists the Cubs, White Sox, Braves and Giants among the teams that have expressed interest in Castillo, but every club is expected to be represented on Saturday.

Yankees designated RHP Chris Leroux for assignment.

The move clears space on the 40-man roster for Chris Capuano. It's the second time this season that Leroux has been designated for assignment, and he has the opportunity to declare free agency if he wants.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Orioles and Cardinals are among the teams showing trade interest in Kurt Suzuki.

The report backs up Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, who said in an interview earlier Friday that Suzuki was "in play" for the Cards. Suzuki makes sense for both clubs, as the Orioles (Matt Wieters) and the Cardinals (Yadier Molina) have both lost catchers to injury. The Twins have tried to extend the All-Star catcher, but talks didn't get very far. Suzuki is hitting .308 this season and has batted .348/.413/.409 over his last 19 games.

Nationals activated OF Eury Perez from the 60-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Syracuse.

Perez's fractured left toe has healed, but he'll remain at Syracuse instead of joining the big club. The speedy outfielder hasn't appeared in the majors this season.

Nationals recalled LHP Matt Purke from Double-A Harrisburg; placed him on the 60-day disabled list with a left elbow injury.

The move clears a spot on the Nationals' 40-man roster. Purke had Tommy John surgery in late May and will be sidelined until around midseason next year.

Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports that the Mets are willing to eat about $2 million of what remains on Bartolo Colon’s two-year, $20 million contract.

Colon is making $9 million this season and is owed $11 million next year. Martino adds that it's "been clear for weeks" that the Mets would like to trade Colon, who has posted a 4.03 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 100/19 K/BB ratio in 134 innings this season. He might wind up being a fallback option for contenders that lose out on the bigger names on the market.

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro has denied speculation that the team has considered releasing Ryan Howard.

"That is not something we are contemplating," Amaro said. "I don’t know where that’s coming from." While the Phillies might not be considering releasing Howard, there's no doubt that they're trying to trade him. The first baseman is now in a platoon situation and is still owed $60 million after this season. Howard has batted just .236/.306/.418 over the last three seasons.
