Padres released RHP Freddy Garcia.

The veteran right-hander was unable to make a real push for a roster spot, posting an 8.71 ERA in 20 2/3 innings this spring. Despite the poor showing in Cactus League action, Garcia shouldn't be out of a job long.

Matt Carpenter is out of Tuesday's lineup against the White Sox.

Chris Sale is on the hill for the White Sox, so it's not a bad time to give Carpenter a bit of a breather. Mark Reynolds will start at third base while Xavier Scruggs plays first.

Kolten Wong is not in Tuesday's lineup against the White Sox.

The Cardinals had a scheduled off-day on Monday, so manager Mike Matheny is likely just using this as an opportunity to give him some extra rest. Pete Kozma will start at second base while Peter Bourjos will bat leadoff. Chris Sale is on the mound for Chicago.

James Loney (finger) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Charlotte.

Loney, out since May 24 with a broken left middle finger, will DH in his return to game action. He has a good chance to return prior to the All-Star break.

Rays signed first-round pick OF Garrett Whitley.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Whitley will receive a $2,962,000 bonus, which is the full slot value for the No. 13 overall pick. The 18-year-old is a toolsy outfielder who should stick in center field as a pro.

Rangers activated OF Josh Hamilton from the 15-day disabled list.

Hamilton went 4-for-12 (.333) with a double and three RBI over four rehab games between Double-A Frisco and Triple-A Round Rock. His hamstring isn't back to 100 percent quite yet, but he's going to try to manage it. The Rangers have talked about using Hamilton in center field, but he's playing left field in his return Tuesday.

Rangers optioned 3B/OF Joey Gallo to Triple-A Round Rock.

Gallo was sent out with Josh Hamilton (hamstring) coming back from the disabled list. The 21-year-old batted .218/.306/.448 with five home runs and a 43/11 K/BB ratio over 98 plate appearances during his first stint in the majors. He has massive long-term potential, but some more time in the minors is the best thing for him right now.

Padres recalled INF Jedd Gyorko from Triple-A El Paso.

He'll replace the injured Cory Spangenberg (knee) on the active roster and figures to see at least part-time at-bats at second base. The 26-year-old was batting just .210/.282/.311 prior to his demotion earlier this month, but he was swinging the bat well during his time in Triple-A.

Padres placed 2B Cory Spangenberg on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 28, with a left knee contusion.

Spangenberg injured the knee on Saturday and will require a couple of weeks of rest. The Padres are calling up Jedd Gyorko to take his place on the active roster.

Sonny Gray was scratched from Tuesday's start against the Rockies due to illness.

He should be back to normal in the next couple of days. The A's are calling up Chris Bassitt to fill in.
Jun 30 - 2:47 PM

Michael Morse has returned to Miami after tweaking a back muscle during his minor league rehab assignment.

Morse was considered likely to be activated Tuesday, but that's obviously not going to happen now. No word yet on how much time he'll miss. The 33-year-old has already been sidelined since May 23 with a finger sprain.
Jun 30 - 2:39 PM

Adam Lind is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Phillies.

He'll take a seat against left-hander Cole Hamels. Jason Rogers will start at first base and bat seventh.
