Yankees optioned RHP Matt Daley to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Daley was sent out to make room for Jeff Francis who arrived on Saturday. Over 12 appearances with the Bombers this season, he owns a 4.85 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 9/6 K/BB ratio over 13 innings.
Blue Jays recall OF Anthony Gose from Triple-A Buffalo.
With Nolan Reimold heading to the disabled list, Gose will once again provide depth in the outfield for the Jays. In 44 games this season, the 23-year-old is hitting .229/.333/.284 with five RBI, five stolen bases and a 32/16 K/BB ratio over 109 at-bats.
Blue Jays placed OF Nolan Reimold on the 15-day disabled list with a left calf strain.
Reimold sustained the injury running the bases during Friday's game. Anthony Gose was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding move.
George Springer has returned to the Astros starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Red Sox.
The dynamic young outfielder was a late scratch from Friday's contest due to discomfort in his right knee. While it sounds like a nagging issue that could remain a problem off and on all season, he felt good enough to give it a go on Saturday. Through 74 games, he's hitting .238/.342/.475 with 19 homers, 50 RBI, five stolen bases and a league-leading 109 strikeouts.
Cubs shortstop prospect Addison Russell went 2-for-5 for the second consecutive night for Double-A Tennessee.
Russell was 0-for-9 over his first two games, but has gone 4-for-10 over his last two games, bringing his Cubs-only line to .211/.211/.211 over four games. Russell is a better shortstop, both now and long-term, than Javier Baez, but the Cubs future infield is beyond crowded, with Arismendy Alcantara, Baez, Kris Bryant, and Russell making the case for three spots, one of which is already in the possession of 22-year old Starlin Castro.
Stephen Drew is not in the Red Sox starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Astros.
Brock Holt will draw the start in his place at shorstop while Xander Bogaerta covers third base. Drew continues to struggle offensively, slashing just .135/.198/.258 with two homers and five RBI through his first 27 games.
Matt Lindstrom (ankle) threw 30 pitches in a successful bullpen session on Saturday.
The veteran right-hander is finally making progress in his recovery since undergoing ankle surgery in May. He will throw another bullpen session over the All-Star break, and if all continues to go well, he could be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment at some point next two weeks.
Angels right-handed pitching prospect Cam Bedrosian struck out all three batters he faced for Double-A Arkansas on Friday.
After a brief but solid second stint with the Angels, Bedrosian returned to the Texas League to strike out all three batters he faced in one inning, two swinging and one looking, on just 16 pitches, 11 of which were strikes. Bedrosian has the stuff and the bloodlines to be a closer (his father, Steve, has 184 saves for his career), and should be back up in the majors before the end of the season.
