Rays signed OF Jason Bourgeois to a minor league contract.

It does not include an invitation to spring training. Bourgeois has good speed but is a career .261/.306/.324 hitter and merely represents minor league depth.

Wei-Yin Chen tossed eight dominant innings in a win against the Rangers on Wednesday, allowing only two runs.

Chen scattered four hits and a walk while striking out two. Both runs came on solo home runs by Shin-Soo Choo and Ryan Rua in the third and fourth innings, respectively. Chen had also pitched well on Friday in his return to the Orioles' rotation. He now owns a 2.84 ERA with a 1.11 WHIP and a 78/22 K/BB ratio over 95 innings. The lefty will take on the Twins on the road in his next outing.

Buster Posey left Wednesday's game after taking a foul ball off his mask.

Posey stayed in after the incident, but he was removed in the fifth inning. He's being re-evaluated, likely for concussion symptoms, and the club may have a better prognosis after the game. Andrew Susac would be in line for the bulk of the playing time if Posey is forced to miss time.

Bill Burns finished 2-for-4 with a double, triple and two runs scored as the Athletics topped the Rockies 4-1 on Wednesday.

Burns, as he has been for much of the year, was the catalyst for the A's offense against Chad Bettis and the Rockies. The speedy outfielder tripled and scored in the third inning -- his fifth triple of the season -- and doubled and scored in the fifth. Burns is batting .320/.361/.430 with 34 runs scored and 16 steals on the year. Burns is owned in just 64 percent of Yahoo leagues, a number that should be higher given what he's shown to this point.

Sonny Gray (illness) was released from the hospital Wednesday.

Gray had been hospitalized since Tuesday due to "severe gastroenteritis." Despite feeling better, there's no clear picture of when the right-hander might make his next start.
Jul 1 - 7:08 PM

Taijuan Walker yielded just one hit over six scoreless frames Wednesday in the Mariners' 7-0 blanking of the Padres.

The only two blemishes of the afternoon for Walker happened in the bottom of the fourth, when Derek Norris got hit by a pitch and Yonder Alonso singled to center. Walker did meet with a trainer in the sixth inning, but it apparently wasn't anything serious. He was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the seventh after throwing 76 pitches. Walker has been terrific since late May and will look to keep it rolling next week versus the Tigers.

Joc Pederson is not in the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

Pederson will take a seat with lefty Robbie Ray on the bump for the D'backs. Kike Hernandez will get the start in center field for Pederson on Wednesday.

Adrian Gonzalez is not in the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

With lefty Robbie Ray on the hill, Gonzalez and a few of the other left-handed hitting Dodgers are getting a rest. Scott Van Slyke started in his place at first base Wednesday.

Orioles designated OF Delmon Young for assignment.

Young wasn't terrible this year but wasn't producing much, either, owning a .270/.289/.339 with two home runs in 174 at-bats. The 29-year-old showed enough that he could be of interest to a team as a possible trade target or waiver claim, though. Young is making $2.25 million this year before becoming a free agent this winter.

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Patrick Corbin (elbow) could make his season debut Saturday against the Rockies.

Corbin was expected to make a final rehab start Thursday, but the club is holding him back with the idea that he could be needed with the big club sooner. Corbin owns a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 minor league innings as he makes his way back from Tommy John surgery. Corbin is worth owning, if not starting, in all fantasy leagues.

MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports that the Twins are calling up prospect Miguel Sano.

Kennys Vargas has already been optioned to Triple-A Rochester to open up a roster spot. Sano, 22, boasts a .918 OPS with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in 66 games this season at the Double-A level. He's primarily played third base in the minors, but look for the Twins to use him as their everyday designated hitter. Sano has been a consensus top-20 prospect for going on four years and is worth a shot in every mixed fantasy league for his power potential.
Jul 1 - 5:14 PM

Jaime Garcia (groin) won't make his next scheduled start Thursday against the Padres.

Garcia is expected to avoid the disabled list, but he was unable to complete scheduled throwing sessions on Saturday and Monday due to ongoing cramping in his left groin. He should be fine after one skipped turn in the Cardinals' rotation. Tim Cooney is probably going to fill in on Thursday versus San Diego.
