Mets optioned INF Danny Muno to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Muno has one hit in 15 at-bats over a couple stints with the big club this season. He'll return to a .280/.354/.400 line at Las Vegas.

Brewers recalled 1B/OF Shane Peterson from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Peterson has hit .320/.387/.523 with seven homers and 27 RBI at hitter-friendly Colorado Springs this season. He'll give the club some outfield depth with Khris Davis (knee) out.

Brewers optioned RHP Tyler Cravy to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Cravy held the Cardinals to one run over seven innings in his major league debut Tuesday, but the Brewers needed to add another outfielder. The righty certainly will receive consideration the next time the big club needs a starter.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Red Sox have acquired Alejandro De Aza from the Orioles.

There's no word yet on what the Orioles will be getting in return or how much of what's remaining on his $5 million contract they might be picking up. De Aza was designated for assignment by Baltimore last Friday after batting just .214/.277/.359 over 30 games. Boston certainly isn't an ideal landing spot for him given all the other outfield options that they have.

The Diamondbacks plan to ease Jarrod Saltalamacchia into everyday catcher duties.

They need him to serve as their regular catcher following Tuffy Gosewisch's (knee) season-ending injury, but Salty isn't completely familiar with the pitching staff yet. He'll share time behind the dish with Jordan Pacheco for now. "It'll almost be a day-on, day-off thing until we really feel like his legs are underneath them," manager Chip Hale said. Despite him being eased into starting duties, Salty's power makes him a worthy second catcher in mixed leagues.

Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said Monday that a decision has not been made as to whether prospect Peter O'Brien has given up catching and become a full-time outfielder.

The Triple-A Reno Aces' official Twitter account tweeted Sunday that O'Brien had "made the decision" to give up catching and it was later confirmed by the D'Backs. The tweet has since been deleted and now Stewart is saying nothing is final yet. "We're never going to let a player dictate to us what he wants to do," Stewart said. "We'll sit down and, as a group, discuss and talk about what we should be doing and what the best direction is for a player." O'Brien's throwing from the catcher position has returned to normal after he had the yips in spring training. Still, it sure seems like his future is in the outfield even if the decision isn't official yet. He's batting .339/.377/.634 with 12 homers and 47 RBI over 49 games for Reno this season.

Rafael Betancourt yielded a go-ahead grand slam in the ninth inning Tuesday versus the Dodgers in his return to action.

Betancourt hadn't been available for a few days due to a sinus infection but appeared in both ends of Tuesday's doubleheader. He retired the only batter he faced in the first game but allowed four hits -- including Alex Guerrero's grand slam -- as he tried to close out the second game with John Axford unavailable.

Andrew Miller allowed a run in the 11th inning, but still got his 16th save as the Yankees won 5-3 over the Mariners on Tuesday.

Miller allowed a one-out single to Welington Castillo, then hit Austin Jackson with a pitch. After getting Brad Miller to pop up, Miller served up an RBI single to Robinson Cano, putting the tying run on base. The lefty bounced back and struck out Nelson Cruz to end the ballgame. It's only the second time this season Miller has been scored upon. He's 16-for-16 in save chances with a 1.16 ERA and a 37/9 K/BB ratio in 23 1/3 innings.
