Blue Jays optioned OF Dwight Smith Jr. to Triple-A Buffalo.

He'll head back to the minors now that Ezequiel Carrera has returned from the disabled list. Smith has batted .370 (10-for-27) with a pair of doubles during his time in the majors this season. He should get another chance soon.

Blue Jays recalled RHP Chris Smith from Triple-A Buffalo.

This confirms a report from Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca. Smith, 28, has posted a 3.93 ERA and 15/2 K/BB ratio over 18 1/3 innings this season with Triple-A Buffalo. He'll be making his major league debut when he gets into a game.
Jun 27 - 3:28 PM

Blue Jays activated OF Ezequiel Carrera from the 10-day disabled list.

Amazingly, Carrera only ended up missing a little under two weeks with his right foot fracture. He returns to a .297/.366/.412 batting line.
Jun 27 - 3:27 PM

Blue Jays designated RHP Jason Grilli for assignment.

It's part of a host of moves for the Blue Jays, including the addition of Chris Smith to the bullpen. The 40-year-old Grilli has put up an unsightly 6.97 ERA over 26 appearances this season and the Blue Jays are now ready to move forward.
Jun 27 - 3:25 PM

Brewers activated INF Jonathan Villar from the 10-day disabled list.

Villar landed on the disabled list with a back strain earlier this month, but he made it through a brief rehab assignment with no issues while going 8-for-13. The Brewers will have to hope that he can keep it going in his return to the active roster. Villar has put up a disappointing .213/.283/.342 batting line so far this season. Eric Sogard could cut into his playing time if he continues to struggle.
Jun 27 - 3:22 PM

Brewers activated OF Ryan Braun from the 10-day disabled list.

Braun, who has been out for a month with a calf strain, went 2-for-8 with a homer during a brief minor league rehab stint with Class A Wisconsin. The 33-year-old returns to a .262/.350/.524 batting line with seven home runs and 19 RBI over 30 games.
Jun 27 - 3:18 PM

Brewers designated INF Nick Franklin for assignment.

Franklin gets the boot with Jonathan Villar and Ryan Braun coming back from the disabled list. The 26-year-old was claimed off waivers from the Rays at the end of spring training, but he batted just .195/.258/.317 with two homers and 10 RBI through 53 games during his tenure with Milwaukee.
Jun 27 - 3:15 PM

Rays released C Derek Norris.

Norris was designated for assignment last week with Wilson Ramos on the verge of being activated. The 28-year-old was batting just .201/.258/.380 with nine homers through 53 games, but he shouldn't be out of work for long.
