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.

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

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.

Mets activated INF Daniel Murphy from the 15-day disabled list.

Murphy, out since June 5 with a strained right quad, is expected to take over at third base while Wilmer Flores will play second and Ruben Tejada will function as the regular shortstop. The 30-year-old was batting .283/.335/.414 with four homers and 29 RBI in 55 games prior to the injury.

Brandon Phillips (hand) is out of the Reds' lineup again for the second straight game Tuesday against the Twins.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Astros have signed competitive balance pick OF Daz Cameron for $4 million.

Cameron was selected No. 37 overall, so the Astros went $2.332 million over the slot value in order to sign him. The 18-year-old slipped due to his high price tag, but the Astros had the largest pool in this year's draft. They also selected Alex Bregman and Kyle Tucker in the first round. It's an impressive haul of talent.

The 32-year-old has batted just .213/.275/.299 over 49 games this season and Matt Duffy has played his way into the starting third base job. He's making a $4.8 million salary.
