Michael Pineda (back) has been cleared to begin a rehab assignment after throwing a successful simulated game Tuesday.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi described Pineda during the sim game as "really good." It's not clear where he'll be assigned for his rehab assignment or what day it will begin, but it will come later this week. Pineda is tracking towards a mid-August return if all goes well.

Rockies recalled INF Cristhian Adames from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Adames will give the Rockies some infield depth while Troy Tulowitzki (hip) is on the DL and Josh Rutledge battles an illness. The 23-year-old has hit .276/.332/.351 with two homers between Double- and Triple-A this season and will be making his major league debut when he gets into a game.

Rockies activated LHP Boone Logan from the 15-day disabled list.

Logan missed the minimum amount of time with diverticulitis. He returns to a 6.11 ERA over 25 relief appearances.
Jul 29 - 6:10 PM

Rockies optioned RHP Chad Bettis to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Bettis gave up nine runs over eight appearances during his latest stint with the big club. He has a nice arm, but the righty has yet to put it together at the major league level.
Jul 29 - 6:09 PM

Rockies optioned RHP Brooks Brown to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Brown held a 7.56 ERA over nine relief appearances with the big club. He'll likely be back in September, if not before.
Jul 29 - 6:08 PM

Rockies optioned 1B Ben Paulsen to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Paulsen had 10 hits in 22 at-bats while up with the Rockies, but he's no longer needed with Justin Morneau back from the DL. He'll be back later this season.

Cubs pitching prospect C.J. Edwards (shoulder) is expected to return to Double-A Tennessee this week.

Edwards made a successful rehab start on Monday for rookie-level Mesa and will now rejoin the rotation at Tennessee. The right-hander had a 2.61 ERA, 1.065 WHIP, and 20/8 K/BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings for the Smokies before his shoulder began bothering him in late April. He should make it to Chicago sometime in 2015.
Jul 29 - 5:56 PM

Cubs placed RHP Neil Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list with a sore right triceps muscle.

Ramirez was optioned to Triple-A Iowa last week, but that has now been voided because of this triceps injury. The 25-year-old right-hander has registered a brilliant 0.96 ERA and 36/10 K/BB ratio in 28 innings of relief this season out of the Chicago bullpen.
