Justin Ruggiano (groin) is available to pinch-hit Friday.

Ruggiano hasn't played since Tuesday due to some tightness in his groin. The outfielder has made enough progress that he can swing a bat, but he's yet to be cleared to play the field.

Edwin Jackson does not have any lingering effects after leaving Thursday's start with cramping in his right hand.

He'll be fine for his next scheduled outing on Tuesday against the Rockies. Jackson has posted an ugly 5.68 ERA and 1.56 WHIP over 21 starts this season.

Padres optioned INF Jace Peterson to Triple-A El Paso.

He's clearing room for the return of Jesse Hahn to the Padres' rotation. Peterson has hit just .100/.151/.100 across 25 games this season at the big league level but should be back in September, if not before.

Padres recalled RHP Jesse Hahn from Triple-A El Paso.

Hahn will start on Friday in Atlanta after being sent down before the All-Star break in order to keep pitching. The young right-hander has been superb over his 40 2/3 innings with the Padres, putting up a 2.21 ERA and 1.06 WHIP with 47 strikeouts.
Jul 25 - 1:40 PM

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.
