Matt Harrison (back) said he's ready to return to the Rangers' starting rotation.

He scattered three runs over six innings Wednesday in his sixth rehab start for Triple-A Round Rock. Harrison's 30-day rehab window expires on Thursday so the Rangers have to make a decision on where he'll make his next start. They could go with a six-man rotation and address the situation after the All-Star break. Rookie Chi Chi Gonzalez has lost three of his last four starts and could be the odd man out when Harrison returns.

The Astros will call up OF Alex Presley from Triple-A Fresno.

He's expected to replace George Springer, who left Wednesday night's game with a bruised wrist. The 29-year-old appeared in 89 games for Houston last season, batting .244 with six homers and 19 RBI. In 244 at-bats for Fresno this season, Presley has hit .308 with 10 steals and 35 RBI.
Jul 2 - 12:44 PM

Twins recalled INF Miguel Sano from Double-A Chattanooga.

Sano will take over as the Twins' regular designated hitter in Thursday's series opener against the Royals. The 22-year-old was sporting a .918 OPS with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in 66 games this season at the Double-A level and he's a must-own in all standard fantasy leagues for his massive power potential.
Jul 2 - 11:57 AM

Buster Posey (head) is starting at first base for the Giants on Thursday afternoon against the Marlins.

Posey left Wednesday's game after taking a foul ball off the center of his mask, but he passed a concussion test. He is batting cleanup Thursday against Jose Fernandez, who's making his first start in over 13 months.
Jul 2 - 11:30 AM

Braves recalled LHP Manny Banuelos from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Banuelos will make his major league debut Thursday in the Braves' series finale against the Nationals. The 24-year-old former top prospect has registered a strong 2.29 ERA and 69/38 K/BB ratio over 82 2/3 innings this season for Gwinnett but probably isn't worth the one-time stream in most fantasy leagues. If he gets an extended look, that may change.
Jul 2 - 11:25 AM

Braves optioned RHP Ryan Kelly to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Kelly allowed a run on two hits in his one relief appearance with the Braves. He has posted very good numbers this year at Triple-A and should get another look soon.
Jul 2 - 11:22 AM

Tigers released OF Xavier Avery.

Avery exercised a July 1 opt-out in his minor league contract with the Tigers. The 25-year-old outfielder was batting .305/.371/.393 with one homer and 14 stolen bases through 73 games for Triple-A Toledo and should have no trouble latching on with a new organization.
Jul 2 - 11:04 AM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said he will back off Santiago Casilla for a few days due to fatigue.

Casilla blew his fourth save of the season on Wednesday night, yielding three runs without retiring batter. His job still seems safe, but look for Bochy to play the matchups with Javier Lopez and Sergio Romo over the next few games should a save opportunity arise. Casilla, 34, has a 3.03 ERA and 30 strikeouts in 29 2/3 total innings this season. He's been fine for the most part.
