Twins signed RHP Scott Atchison to a minor league contract.
Atchison posted a 6.86 ERA in 23 games before getting released by the Indians last week. The 39-year-old has logged 298 appearances over nine big league seasons.
Yovani Gallardo will start Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.
The Rangers are moving him up a day so he can start twice before the All-Star break. With Gallardo starting next Sunday, it's unlikely he'll be picked for the All-Star Game. The right-hander hasn't allowed a run in his last 29 1/3 innings and now owns the American League's fifth-lowest ERA at 2.56.
Delino Deshields (hamstring) will be reevaluated after Saturday's workout.
Deshields recently wrapped up a six-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock and is close to 100 percent. He should be activated from the disabled list in the next day or two. Texas has a crowded outfield now with Josh Hamilton, Leonys Martin and Shin-Soo Choo all seeing regular at-bats. Deshields had 13 steals in 48 games before his injury.
Diamondbacks transferred C Tuffy Gosewisch to the 60-day disabled list.
Gosewisch suffered a torn ACL in late May and is out for the season. Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Oscar Hernandez will handle the catching duties with Gosewisch sidelined.
Diamondbacks optioned RHP Matt Stites to Triple-A Reno.
Stites' stint with Arizona was short and sweet. He allowed one hit over two scoreless outings, throwing a combined 18 pitches in 1 1/3 innings. The 25-year-old right-hander missed the first two months of the season with a strained right flexor tendon. He'll be back with Arizona as soon as a roster spot opens up.
