Colby Rasmus (illness) has returned to the Astros starting lineup on Saturday.
He's back in center field and batting sixth for the Astros on Saturday after missing a week of action due to an infection he sustained from a bug bite.
Matt Kemp is not in the Padres starting lineup on Saturday.
It's nothing more than a routine day of rest for Kemp. Melvin Upton is getting the start in his place in center field and will bat leadoff for the Padres against Carlos Martinez and the Cardinals.
Cardinals recalled RHP Mitch Harris from Triple-A Memphis.
The 29-year-old right-hander has appeared in 16 games already with the Cardinals this season, posting a 3.63 ERA, 1.85 WHIP and 9/10 K/BB ratio over 17 1/3 innings. He'll function in middle relief for the Cardinals.
Cardinals optioned INF Greg Garcia to Triple-A Memphis.
The 25-year-old has impressed in his limited time with the Cardinals this season, slashing .417/.462/.750 with a homer in 12 at-bats. He'll continue to function as organizational infield depth and should get another opportunity with the Cardinals soon enough.
Chris Carter is not in the Astros starting lineup for Saturday's matchup against the Red Sox.
He'll take a seat in favor of Jonathan Singleton, who has seen his playing time increase in recent days. The 28-year-old Carter is hitting just .197/.311/.405 on the season with 15 homers, 40 RBI and a league-leading 107 strikeouts in 269 at-bats.
Royals released 1B Matt Fields.
The 29-year-old is an 11-year minor league veteran and has never made it to the big leagues. He was hitting just .244/.314/.395 with four homers and 25 RBI in 53 games at Triple-A Omaha this season.
Andrew Miller (forearm) threw 30 pitches in a successful bullpen session on Saturday.
The left-hander indicated afterwards that he would like to go out on a minor league rehab assignment, to simulate as close to MLB game speed as possible, before rejoining the bullpen. It's unclear if he'll step right back into the closer's role upon his return, or wind up in some sort of timeshare with Dellin Betances.
Chris Young is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Rays.
It appears to be just a routine day of rest for Young. Ramon Flores will start in his place in left field and bat sixth against opposing right-hander Nathan Karns.
