Rusney Castillo is with the Red Sox in Toronto on Tuesday.
Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal writes that it's unclear whether he's with the team to be activated or just as Hanley Ramirez insurance. Castillo was batting .333 (7-for-21) with a homer and a double over five games since his demotion to Triple-A Pawtucket last week.
Brandon Phillips (hand) is out of the Reds' lineup again for the second straight game Tuesday against the Twins.
Phillips injured both of his hands in Sunday's loss to the Mets and isn't feeling quite right yet. Ivan De Jesus will start at second base again while Billy Hamilton remains in the leadoff spot.
Rangers released RHP Jared Burton.
Burton signed a minor league deal with the Rangers about a month ago and posted a 0.90 ERA and 11/3 K/BB ratio over 10 innings with Triple-A Round Rock. The 34-year-old asked for his release and apparently hopes to find a better opportunity elsewhere.
CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Astros have signed competitive balance pick OF Daz Cameron for $4 million.
Cameron was selected No. 37 overall, so the Astros went $2.332 million over the slot value in order to sign him. The 18-year-old slipped due to his high price tag, but the Astros had the largest pool in this year's draft. They also selected Alex Bregman and Kyle Tucker in the first round. It's an impressive haul of talent.
A.J. Cole left his start with Triple-A Syracuse on Monday after two innings due to groin tightness.
It's unclear if the issue will require an extended absence. Cole, 23, has made three appearances (one start) with the Nationals this season and owns a 4.40 ERA and 32/19 K/BB ratio over 47 innings in Triple-A.
Giants purchased the contract of INF Ehire Adrianza from Triple-A Sacramento.
He'll take Casey McGehee's spot on the 40-man roster. The 25-year-old Adrianza is a .235/.276/.322 hitter over 62 games in the majors and will function as a backup infielder.
Giants designated 3B Casey McGehee for assignment.
McGehee was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento in late-May before returning a couple of weeks later, but now he's officially off the 40-man roster. The 32-year-old has batted just .213/.275/.299 over 49 games this season and Matt Duffy has played his way into the starting third base job. He's making a $4.8 million salary.
Jim Callis of Baseball America reports that the Red Sox have signed first-round pick OF Andrew Benintendi.
Benintendi will receive a bonus of $3,590,400, which equals the full slot value for the No. 7 overall pick. The 20-year-old is highly-regarded for his all-around skills and is expected to stick in center field for the long-term.
