Yankees purchased the contract of RHP Chris Leroux from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Leroux was designated for assignment by the Yankees back in May after allowing five runs on five hits and a pair of walks in one inning of work. He's getting another chance now but will be used in low-leverage innings.

Yankees designated RHP Bruce Billings for assignment.

The move clears room on the 40-man roster for Chris Leroux. Billings, who allowed four runs over four relief frames in his lone big league appearance this season, has a good shot to clear waivers.

Yankees placed INF/OF Kelly Johnson on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left groin.

Johnson suffered the injury during Tuesday's win over the Rangers. It's not clear how long he'll be sidelined, and even when Johnson returns he faces an uphill battle for playing time following the acquisition of Chase Headley.

Padres purchased the contract of OF Jeff Francoeur from Triple-A El Paso.

Francoeur has batted .294 with 15 homers and a .790 OPS at El Paso this season and has also done some pitching, posting a 4.26 ERA and 4/3 K/BB ratio over 6 1/3 relief innings. It would be fun to see him get some work on the mound with San Diego, but most -- if not all -- of Frenchy's playing time figures to come as an outfielder. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues. The Padres have yet to announce a corresponding move.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Twins are "open to trading" Kendrys Morales.

Well, of course they are. Morales is under contract only for this season and the Twins are well out of the playoff picture, so it makes all the sense in the world to get something for Morales now if they can. While the designated hitter is sporting a lowly .599 OPS, he's picked it up of late with a 12-game hitting streak. The Mariners, Brewers, Yankees and Royals were among the teams pursuing Morales before the Twins signed him, but it's not which if any of those clubs could still have interest in the 31-year-old.

Dayan Viciedo was scratched from Wednesday's lineup due to tightness in his left lower hamstring.

It's not clear when Viciedo suffered the injury, nor is it known how long he might be sidelined. The White Sox should have an update on the outfield's status later Wednesday. Moises Sierra is covering fro Viciedo in right field.

Cardinals optioned LHP Nick Greenwood to Triple-A Memphis.

Greenwood posted a 4.74 ERA while striking out 10 over 19 relief innings with the big club. He was no longer needed with Kevin Siegrist back from the disabled list.
Jul 23 - 1:08 PM

Cardinals activated LHP Kevin Siegrist from the 15-day disabled list.

Siegrist has been out since late May with a forearm strain and more recently a nerve issue in his shoulder, but he made it through five rehab appearances with no issues and is ready to rejoin the Cards' bullpen. Nick Greenwood has been optioned in a corresponding move.
