Phillies agreed to terms with first-round pick SS J.P. Crawford.
Crawford recieved a $2,299,300 signing bonus, which was the exact recommended figure for his slot. The high school shortstop was selected 16th overall last week.
Roy Oswalt is officially scheduled to make his Rockies debut on Thursday against the Nationals.
Oswalt signed a minor league contract with Colorado on May 2 and has registered a stellar 2.16 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 25/7 K/BB ratio across 33 1/3 innings since reporting to Double-A Tulsa. The veteran right-hander is worth a try in most standard mixed fantasy leagues, though keep in mind that he struggled last year with the Rangers.
Mariners activated 1B Justin Smoak from the 15-day disabled list.
Smoak wound up missing a little under three weeks with a right oblique strain. He did not hit the ball well on his rehab assignment and will return to a .240/.350/.344 batting line. The 26-year-old first baseman remains a poor option in standard mixed fantasy leagues.
Mariners optioned INF Alex Liddi to Triple-A Tacoma.
The move opens up a 25-man roster for Justin Smoak's return from the 15-day disabled list. Liddi went 1-for-17 with seven strikeouts during his time in Seattle.
Joakim Soria (elbow, pectoral) will begin a rehab assignment on Thursday with Double-A Frisco.
Soria has thrown multiple bullpen sessions and rounds of live batting practice this month, reporting no issues with his surgically-repaired elbow. He could join the Rangers' bullpen by the end of this month.
Diamondbacks recalled RHP Randall Delgado from Triple-A Reno.
Delgado is starting for the Snakes on Tuesday night against the Marlins. He has a troubling 5.91 ERA and 57/35 K/BB ratio in 64 innings this season at the Triple-A level and can't be trusted in standard fantasy leagues.
Diamondbacks optioned RHP Charles Brewer to Triple-A Reno.
Brewer threw 3 2/3 scoreless innings of relief during his week-long stay in the major leagues. The right-hander will likely get another look in the coming months.
J.A. Happ (head) threw a bullpen session Tuesday.
Another step in the right direction for the left-handed starter, who suffered a sprained right knee when he collapsed on the mound after being in the head by a line drive last month. He should be ready to return to live major league games in early-to-mid July.
