Marlins optioned C J.T. Realmuto to Triple-A New Orleans.

Realmuto was only in the majors for a couple of days this time around. The 23-year-old catcher is 4-for-20 (.200) in seven games this season with the Marlins.

According to Mark D. Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune, infielder Darwin Barney is headed to the Dodgers.

Barney was designated for assignment by the Cubs last week after batting just .244/.290/.335 in parts of five seasons with Chicago. He is a very good defensive second baseman -- with a Gold Glove Award to prove it -- but the 28-year-old simply can't hit.
Jul 28 - 2:29 PM

Red Sox released OF Andres Torres.

Torres exercised the out clause in his minor league contract after batting .292/.311/.472 with three home runs and eight RBI in 18 games at Triple-A Pawtucket. The 36-year-old outfielder may already have another deal lined up, but he's doubtful to reach the majors in 2014.
Jul 28 - 2:11 PM

Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the Phillies are going to hold a private workout with Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo on Tuesday.

Castillo's showcase on Saturday in Miami drew officials from 28 major league teams and the 27-year-old apparently put on a show, running a 60-yard dash in 6.4 seconds and showing impressive power to all fields during batting practice. Castillo is represented by Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports management group and is thought to be seeking a contract worth more than the $42 million that Yasiel Puig got from the Dodgers. The Red Sox and Yankees also have private workouts scheduled.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Indians are "very willing to move" Justin Masterson.

Passan says the Indians want "young, controllable starting pitching" in return, which is going to be a tough find. Masterson can become a free agent after the season and owns a rough 5.51 ERA and 1.63 ERA in 98 innings this year. The big right-hander is also on the disabled list currently with a right knee injury, though he's due back Friday night.
Jul 28 - 1:48 PM

Orioles recalled RHP Preston Guilmet from Triple-A Norfolk.

Guilmet is filling in for T.J. McFarland, who was placed on the bereavement list in a corresponding roster move. Guilmet has a 5.23 ERA this year in the majors.
Jul 28 - 1:35 PM

Orioles placed LHP T.J. McFarland on the bereavement list following his grandmother's death.

McFarland will miss the Orioles' series-opener against the Angels on Monday night and maybe a few more games. Preston Guilmet was called up in a corresponding move to provide bullpen depth.
Jul 28 - 1:34 PM

According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, the Dodgers are "floating Carl Crawford to teams."

It's going to be a difficult sell with Crawford still owed close to $70 million through 2017 and batting just .242/.278/.360 in 198 plate appearances this season. The Dodgers are also known to be shopping Matt Kemp as they try to clear their outfield logjam and dump some salary at the July 31 trade deadline. Not that they need to dump salary.
