Indians optioned INF Cord Phelps to Triple-A Columbus.
Phelps didn't see an at-bat during the few days he was with the big club. With Nick Swisher back from paternity leave, he heads back to the minors.
Indians activated 1B/OF Nick Swisher from the paternity leave list.
Swisher was away from the team for a few days while attending the birth of his first child. Cord Phelps has been sent down in a corresponding move.
Reds activated LHP Manny Parra from the 15-day disabled list.
Parra had been out since late April with a pectoral injury. With Sean Marshall (shoulder) out, the Reds will likely have to use Parra in more critical situations than they'd like. He held an 8.10 ERA over 6 2/3 frames before landing on the DL.
Reds placed LHP Sean Marshall on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 21, with a sprained left shoulder.
It's the second time this season that the shoulder has sent him to the DL, though the Reds called it tendinitis the first time around. The club figures to take it slowly with Marshall this time, so he could be looking at an extended absence. Manny Parra (pectoral) has been activated and will take Marshall's spot in the bullpen.
Giants general manager Brian Sabean said during a radio interview Thursday that he anticipates "there’s some form of surgery coming" for Santiago Casilla (knee).
Casilla has dealt with a cyst on his right knee since last season and it recently became enough of an issue that he was placed on the DL. He shouldn't need a major operation, but it's not clear how long he would be sidelined.
Red Sox optioned C Ryan Lavarnway to Triple-A Pawtucket.
Lavarnway saw just seven at-bats with the big club while David Ross was on the DL. He'll need another injury to occur before getting another call-up.
Red Sox activated C David Ross from the 7-day disabled list.
Ross played in a rehab game with Double-A Portland on Thursday and didn't have any concussion symptoms. He'll return to backing up Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
Mariners designated INF Robert Andino for assignment.
The M's finally decided that they couldn't carry two no-hit middle infielder's, as Andino's .184/.253/.237 batting line is even worse than Brendan Ryan's. Andino is versatile, though, so it's possible he could drawn some interest on waivers.
