Rangers transferred RHP Nick Tepesch from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot on the Rangers' 40-man roster for the arrival of Josh Hamilton. Tepesch remains out indefinitely with a nerve issue in his elbow.

Brewers prospect Clint Coulter crushed four hits Sunday for High-A Brevard County.

Coulter's two-run blast was his sixth of the year. Among minor league hitters, only Fresno's Preston Tucker has more home runs than him. The 21-year-old is having a breakout season and could be headed for a promotion. Coulter has now gone deep 28 times since the start of 2014.

Rangers acquired OF Josh Hamilton from the Angels for cash considerations.

The deal was officially announced by the Angels' Twitter account on Monday afternoon. Anaheim is expected to eat $68 million of the $80 million still owed to Hamilton from his original five-year, $125 million agreement with the club. He'll get a fresh restart in Texas after a falling out with the Angels brought on by his offseason alcohol and cocaine relapse. Hamilton is expected to be recovered from shoulder surgery around the middle of May and carries considerably more fantasy value with the Rangers than he would have with the Halos.

Alex Rodriguez is starting at third base for the Yankees on Monday night versus the Rays.

It's his second start of the season at the hot corner. A-Rod has been among the most productive players in baseball in the early going this year, boasting a .989 OPS with five home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 18 games for the Yankees. He's one home run away from tying Willie Mays on the all-time leaderboard.

Red Sox prospect Ty Buttrey didn't allow a hit in five innings Sunday for Low-A Greenville.

The game went 14 innings, so Buttrey didn't factor in the decision. He finished the outing with seven strikeouts, one off his season-high. Opponents have hit just .210 against Buttrey this season with two homers. The 22-year-old has shown pinpoint control, surrendering only three walks in 22 innings.

Marlins activated C Jarrod Saltalamacchia from the paternity leave list; designated him for assignment.

Salty was signed to a three-year, $21 million free agent contract before the 2014 season, but he struggled in his first summer with Miami and was off to a terrible start in 2015. 24-year-old prospect J.T. Realmuto has emerged as the Marlins' best option at catcher. Salty will presumably pass through waivers because of the money he is owed. He would then hit the free agent market, and should draw considerable interest there.

Red Sox recalled RHP Steven Wright from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Wright will give the Red Sox some much-needed bullpen depth in the wake of Sunday's 18-7 drubbing in Baltimore. The 30-year-old righty has a cool 3.66 career ERA.
Apr 27 - 3:20 PM

Red Sox optioned RHP Heath Hembree to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Hembree was only in the majors for Sunday's game, and he got rocked for six earned runs in 1 1/3 innings of relief against the Orioles. Steven Wright takes his spot.
