Padres signed 2B Adam Buschini to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Buschini flamed out after being a fourth-round pick of the Phillies in 2009, but he resurfaced in independent ball and won the Australian Baseball League Triple Crown in 2012, hitting .363 with 15 home runs and 50 RBI in 42 games for the Canberra Cavalry. He also played 96 games last year for the Amarillo Sox of the American Association, batting .354 with 14 homers, 70 RBI and 34 steals. Buschini is a longshot to make the Opening Day roster, but his story is an interesting one.

George Springer was scratched from the Astros starting lineup on Friday.

No word given yet as to the reason for the late scratch. Robbie Grossman will start in his place in center field and hit sixth for the Astros.

Diamoncbacks activated OF Mark Trumbo from the 15-day disabled list.

Trumbo blasted five long balls in his seven rehab games, forcing the Diamondbacks to activate him a few days earlier than originally planned. He is in the lineup and will bat fifth against Tim Lincecum in his return.

Hanley Ramirez is not expected to play before the All-Star break due to a flare-up with his arthritic right shoulder.

Ramirez, who received another injection in the shoulder following Thursday's game, missed a handful of games last month with the same ailment. The Dodgers are hoping that he'll be ready to go for the start of the second half, but it's no guarantee. Miguel Rojas is handling shortstop while Ramirez is sidelined.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Mark Trumbo (foot) is in San Francisco with the Diamondbacks and could be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

The plan has been to activate him immediately after the All-Star break, but Trumbo appears to have forced the club's hand by hitting five homers over seven rehab games. We should find out shortly whether the Giants indeed plan on activating him early. Trumbo has been sidelined since late April with a stress fracture in his left foot.

Jason Castro is back in the Astros' lineup Friday.

It's his first start since Sunday, as Castro has been battling pain in his left armpit. The Astros catching is sporting a .228/.303/.366 batting line with seven homers and 34 RBI over 73 games this season.
Jul 11 - 4:41 PM

Orioles placed RHP Ubaldo Jimenez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 6, with a sprained right ankle.

Jimenez rolled his ankle on Wednesday while getting out of his car, resulting in lots of swelling. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. Kevin Gausman has been recalled to take his spot in the rotation.

Adam Lind (foot) is expected to return in 2-3 weeks after undergoing a second opinion.

Lind was initially expected to be sidelined 6-8 weeks, so obviously this is great news. He'll wear a walking boot on his fractured right foot for the next 5-7 days before then beginning his rehab. Dan Johnson has replaced Lind on the roster.
Jul 11 - 4:21 PM

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle revealed on Friday that Gerrit Cole (lat) will not return from the disabled list when first eligible on July 20.

Cole is already throwing again, but he's dealt with two shoulder injuries over the last month and the Pirates don't want to rush him back. There's no timetable for his return, but early August seems doable as long as the right-hander doesn't have any setbacks.
Jul 11 - 3:52 PM

Ian Desmond (hand) is not in the Nationals' lineup Friday.

X-rays on Desmond's right hand came back negative, but he's still a little sore. The Nats are hoping that he'll be ready to go on Saturday. Danny Espinosa is at shortstop Friday.
Jul 11 - 3:38 PM

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi and Ken Rosenthal report that the Angels, Blue Jays and Tigers have been in contact with Rangers regarding Joakim Soria.

The Angels would be the best landing spot for Soria from a fantasy perspective, as he would figure to have the best chance to remain a closer. Soria is making a reasonable $5.5 million this season with a $7 million club option for 2015, so it's no surprise that he's drawing interest. He's put up a 2.76 ERA and ridiculous 40/4 K/BB ratio over 29 1/3 innings this season.

Cardinals claimed C George Kottaras off waivers from the Indians.

The Cards needed some depth at catcher following the Yadier Molina (thumb) injury, and Kottaras makes sense as a stop-gap. The 31-year-old is a career .216/.326/.415 hitter but did slug three homers over 10 games with the Tribe. He figures to share time with Tony Cruz while Molina is out, with Audry Perez heading back to Triple-A Memphis. Kottaras won't officially report until Saturday.
