J.D. Martinez (hand) drew a walk as a pinch-hitter Sunday against the Nationals.

It was his first appearance in a game since being hit in the left hand with a pitch in his first game with the Diamondbacks last Wednesday. It seems like he's trending in the right direction.

Chad Bettis (cancer) allowed three runs over 2 2/3 innings Sunday in his latest minor league rehab start with Triple-A Albuquerque.

Bettis, who previously made two starts with Double-A Hartford, allowed six hits and two walks while striking out four. He was pulled after throwing 62 pitches. The results weren't the best, but Bettis is feeling good as he continues his comeback from testicular cancer. "Physically, I felt good and strong. I felt like I could've thrown a lot more," Bettis said after Sunday's outing. "But I worked on what I need to. I felt like I was able to execute some of the pitches that I really wanted to, but at the same time, it seemed like there's some stuff to work on." Bettis is slated to throw 75-80 pitches in his next rehab start on Friday before being reevaluated. He should join the Rockies' rotation at some point in August.

Neil Ramirez has elected to become a free agent.

Ramirez cleared waivers after being designated for assignment by the Mets late last week. The 28-year-old owns a rough 7.18 ERA over 29 appearances in the majors this season between the Giants and Mets. He'll try to find a new opportunity elsewhere.

Red Sox transferred LHP Robbie Ross to the 60-day disabled list.

Nothing has changed in the recovery for the left-hander, this was done merely as a procedural move to free up a roster spot for the promotion of Rafael Devers on Monday.

Red Sox optioned RHP Kyle Martin to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Martin was only with the club for a couple of days as an extra bullpen arm. The 26-year-old owns a 3.86 ERA, 1.71 WHIP and 1/2 K/BB ratio in 2 1/3 innings at the big league level this season. He should get another chance with the Red Sox when rosters expand in September.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that Brandon McCarthy (blister) won't make his scheduled start on Tuesday and will be heading to the disabled list.

Kenta Maeda will start in his place on Tuesday against the Twins. McCarthy dealt with blister issues in each of his previous two starts and the club wants to make sure he gets rid of the problem before he takes the hill again.

Jul 23 - 11:19 PM

Wade Davis locked down his 20th save of the season on Sunday, working a scoreless ninth inning to protect a two-run advantage against the Cardinals.

Davis allowed a leadoff single to Paul DeJong, but no damage came from it. The 31-year-old now boasts a 2.12 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 48/16 K/BB ratio across 34 innings on the season.
