Padres recalled INF/OF Alexi Amarista from Triple-A El Paso.

Amarista will fill in for Yangervis Solarte, who was placed on the family leave list in a corresponding move. Amarista, 27, has hit .239/.299/.261 in 98 plate appearances this year at the major league level.
Jul 27 - 10:10 AM

Blue Jays optioned RHP Bo Schultz to Triple-A Buffalo.

The move clears a roster spot for Joaquin Benoit, who was acquired from the Mariners late Tuesday night for Drew Storen. Schultz has a 3.27 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and 7/2 K/BB ratio in 11 innings this season at the MLB level.
Jul 27 - 9:55 AM

Ichiro Suzuki is out of the Marlins' starting lineup on Wednesday against the Phillies.

Ichiro is three hits from 3,000, but the Marlins don't want to push the 42-year-old too hard. He went 1-for-5 with a single in Tuesday's 5-0 defeat of Philadelphia.
Jul 27 - 9:41 AM

Marlins sent RHP Asher Wojciechowski outright to Triple-A New Orleans.

Wojciechowski was designated for assignment by Miami earlier this month and passed through waivers without drawing a claim from another team. The 27-year-old right-hander has a brutal 6.02 ERA and 1.62 WHIP in 46 1/3 innings this season in the minor leagues.
Jul 27 - 9:37 AM

Braves sent INF Ronnier Mustelier outright to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Mustelier served as the 26th man for the Braves in a doubleheader earlier this month, but he did not receive a plate appearance. The 31-year-old from Santiago de Cuba is batting .300/.362/.399 over 357 plate appearances this season in the minor leagues.
Jul 27 - 9:33 AM

Trea Turner is making his second straight start in center field Wednesday versus the Indians.

He will also bat leadoff for the Nationals against Indians right-hander Carlos Carrasco. Turner made his first career start in center field on Tuesday night and had some issues, but it's the best spot for him at the moment under the Nats' current roster construction. He should be athletic enough to make it work.
Jul 27 - 9:27 AM

Rangers released OF Justin Ruggiano.

Ruggiano was batting .226/.321/.427 with seven home runs over 190 plate appearances this season at Triple-A Round Rock. The 34-year-old outfielder will probably latch on with another organization soon.
Jul 27 - 9:22 AM

Nationals manager Dusty Baker suggested late Tuesday that he's considering a change at closer.

Papelbon blew his second straight save opportunity on Tuesday night against the Indians, yielding three runs on two walks and two hits. He did not record an out. "It’s too soon after," Baker said in his postgame press conference. "I mean, that’s his job. That’s what he’s getting paid for. I don’t know. We just have to go back to the drawing board. It’s too early to say after the game." Washington was heavily interested in Aroldis Chapman before he went to the Cubs. Maybe there's a plan now that involves Andrew Miller. If no outside upgrade is made and Papelbon's struggles continue, Shawn Kelley could become the guy.
