Cubs optioned RHP Justin Grimm to Triple-A Iowa.

The move opens a roster spot for Sunday's starter, Brian Matusz. The Cubs' bullpen has gotten crowded over the last week with Aroldis Chapman and Mike Montgomery both arriving in separate trades. Grimm holds a 4.72 ERA over 45 appearances this year.

Carlos Rodon (wrist) will return Sunday against the Twins.

Manager Robin Ventura had been leaning that way all week but he didn't make the official call until Saturday. Rodon has been out with a sprained wrist since July 5. He scattered five hits and two runs over 3 2/3 innings Monday in a rehab start for Triple-A Charlotte.
Jul 30 - 7:13 PM

Rich Hill (finger) felt good after throwing a 60-pitch bullpen session on Saturday.

Hill had his blister covered for the first 45 pitches but took it off for the last 15. Assuming he isn't traded, Hill should return to the A's rotation either Thursday against the Angels or Friday versus the Cubs. He left his last start on July 17 after throwing just five pitches.

Kole Calhoun is not in the Angels' lineup Saturday against the Red Sox.

Calhoun will ride the bench with left-hander Drew Pomeranz throwing for Boston. Shane Robinson will handle right field in his absence. Calhoun hasn't done anything spectacular this year, but he's hit a respectable .279 with 10 HR, 54 RBI and 63 runs scored across 384 at-bats.

Angels activated OF Craig Gentry from the 60-day disabled list; designated him for assignment.

He's missed most of the year with a back injury. Gentry opened the year in a left field platoon with Daniel Nava, who was also DFA'd on Saturday. Now that role is being filled by Jefry Marte.
Jul 30 - 7:00 PM

Angels activated OF Shane Robinson from the 15-day disabled list.

He missed most of July with a sprained right ankle. Robinson will hit ninth and play right field Saturday against Boston. The 31-year-old has hit just .215 with one homer in 65 at-bats this season.
Jul 30 - 6:55 PM

Angels designated OF Daniel Nava for assignment.

The move clears a roster spot for Shane Robinson, who is back after missing three weeks with a sprained ankle. Nava hit only .245 with one homer in 119 at-bats for the Angels. His next team will be his fourth in the last two seasons.
Jul 30 - 6:52 PM

Diamondbacks designated INF/OF Michael Freeman for assignment.

The D'Backs needed to clear space on the 40-man roster to bring up relievers Steve Hathaway and Adam Loewen. Freeman should clear waivers and return to Triple-A Reno. He went 0-for-9 during his brief stint in Arizona.
