Allen Webster will get another start on Saturday versus the Yankees.

Webster earned another turn after holding the Rays to two runs over 5 1/3 frames on Sunday. "Everything points to Allen making that start. There's no plans right now to make any changes in our rotation," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. Webster will need to pitch well to retain his spot in the rotation, as Brandon Workman looms.

Hector Sanchez (concussion) failed a concussion test Monday.

He'll have to wait 3-4 days before he can take another one. Sanchez was placed on the disabled list Saturday after having to leave Friday's game following a foul top to the mask.

Dodgers signed RHP Barry Enright to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Enright was released by the Phillies earlier this month after posting a 5.58 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 64/33 K/BB ratio over 101 2/3 at Triple-A. He'll give the Dodgers minor league depth.

Royals recalled INF Christian Colon from Triple-A Omaha.

Colon was up for a cup of coffee earlier this month, picking up four hits in 12 at-bats. He can play all over the infield and should see some starts at third base against left-handed pitching.

Royals designated C Brett Hayes for assignment.

Hayes wasn't providing much protection for Salvador Perez, batting just .135/.151/.212 over 53 plate appearances. He seems likely to clear waivers. Erik Kratz is the Royals' new backup catcher.

Royals acquired RHP Liam Hendriks and C Erik Kratz from the Blue Jays in exchange for 3B Danny Valencia.

Hendriks holds a 6.08 ERA in three starts in the majors this season but boasts a 2.33 mark at Triple-A. He'll provide some rotation depth for the Royals.

Royals acquired C Erik Kratz and RHP Liam Hendriks from the Blue Jays in exchange for 3B Danny Valencia.

Kratz has hit .198/.226/.346 with three homers over 34 games for the Jays this season. He's show pop in his career with 21 homers over 501 plate appearances and is likely to take over as Salvador Perez's primary backup.

Blue Jays acquired 3B Danny Valencia from the Royals in exchange for RHP Liam Hendriks and C Erik Kratz.

Valencia can play third base against left-handed pitching until Brett Lawrie (finger) is ready to return, and even then he might still get starts if Lawrie is used at second base. The 29-year-old has batted .282/.328/.382 with two homers over 36 games for the Royals this season and is a career .333/.369/.510 batter versus southpaws.
