Adeiny Hechavarria is not in Monday's lineup against the Astros.

Hechavarria made the start at shortstop Sunday in his return from the disabled list, but Willy Adames is back in there Monday. Christian Arroyo's oblique injury buys the Rays some more time, but Hechavarria wouldn't appear to have much of a future here. A trade is a distinct possibility, though maybe when Daniel Robertson (hamstring) is ready to return.

Major League Baseball has extended the administrative leave for Roberto Osuna for another week through June 25.

It's a paper move with Osuna's legal situation looming. The Blue Jays' closer was arrested May 8 for allegedly assaulting a woman and won't have his next court date until July 9. His lawyer, Domenic Basile, said Monday that his client intends to plead not guilty. It could be a while under there's a resolution here.

The Astros have promoted general manager Jeff Luhnow while extending his contract through 2023.

Luhnow originally joined the Astros as general manager in December of 2011, but his new title will be president of baseball operations and general manager. He's deserving of the promotion and new deal coming off a World Series championship. The club is currently 1.5 games ahead of the Mariners in the AL West with a 48-25 record.

Twins released INF/OF Taylor Featherston.

Featherston was batting just .167/.270/.278 over 55 games this season with Triple-A Rochester. The 28-year-old will look for a better opportunity with another club.

Astros activated LHP Reymin Guduan from the paternity leave list; optioned to Triple-A Fresno.

Guduan made one appearance with the Astros last Wednesday before leaving to be present for the birth of his first child. The 25-year-old returns to a 3.10 ERA and 43/18 K/BB ratio over 29 innings in Triple-A.

Yankees recalled OF Clint Frazier from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Frazier will provide some outfield help with Brett Gardner (knee) banged up, but it's unclear how long he'll stick around. The 23-year-old owns an impressive .312/.389/.558 batting line with seven homers over 38 games in Triple-A this season.
Jun 18 - 3:04 PM

Yankees optioned INF Ronald Torreyes to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre.

Clint Frazier has been called up from Triple-A to take his place on the active roster. Torreyes was called up on June 9 and logged just four plate appearances during his brief stay.
Jun 18 - 3:00 PM

Indians optioned OF Greg Allen.

The 25-year-old Allen is in a 1-for-33 (.030) slide at the plate, pulling his batting line down to .204/.248/.301 over 34 games. He should get another chance with the Indians before long.
Jun 18 - 2:56 PM

Indians signed LHP Marc Rzepczynski to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Columbus.

Rzepczynski was released by the Mariners earlier this month after posting a 9.39 ERA over 18 appearances this season. The 31-year-old southpaw has enjoyed some success in the past and makes for a worthy flier for Cleveland.
Jun 18 - 2:52 PM

Indians activated 1B Yonder Alonso from the family medical emergency list.

Greg Allen was sent down to Triple-A in a corresponding roster move. Alonso missed the weekend series against the Twins.
Jun 18 - 2:50 PM

Roberto Osuna's lawyer, Domenic Basile, said Monday that his client intends to plead not guilty.

Osuna wasn't present for his first court date on Monday in connection with a charge for his arrest on May 8 for allegedly assaulting a woman. The judge approved July 9 for the next hearing date. Basile said he expects MLB to wait on any punishment for Osuna until there's a resolution on his criminal case. In other words, there's nothing imminent here. Osuna could face a suspension from MLB event if he isn't convicted.

Brett Gardner said that while he's "encouraged" by how his right knee feels, he's going to sit out the second game against the Nationals on Monday.

Gardner missed Sunday's game due to right knee soreness and can be considered day-to-day. The Yankees have reportedly called up Clint Frazier to provide some depth as the 26th man, though the club has yet to make an official announcement.
Jun 18 - 2:29 PM

Miguel Sano will start at third base and bat third Monday in his first game since his demotion to High-A Fort Myers.

Sano was demoted last week after batting just .203/.270/.405 with seven homers over 37 games. The 25-year-old reported to spring training out of shape after offseason surgery on his leg and has regressed with his approach this season, so a reset could be the best thing for him. An exact timetable for his return will depend on how he responds.
Jun 18 - 2:22 PM

Kevin Kiermaier (thumb) is on track to be activated from the disabled list Friday.

Kiermaier is 7-for-17 (.412) with a triple and a double through five rehab games between High-A Charlotte and Triple-A Columbus as he makes his way back from surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb. The 28-year-old was batting just .163/.250/.233 over his first 12 games prior to the injury, but he was very productive when healthy last year and is worth scooping up in mixed fantasy leagues if he was dropped.
Jun 18 - 1:34 PM

Melky Cabrera elected free agency.

Cabrera chose free agency over an outright assignment to Triple-A Columbus. Cabrera, 33, batted just .207/.242/.293 with zero home runs through 66 plate appearances during his time with the Indians. He'll try to find a new opportunity elsewhere.
