Royals released 1B Matt Fields.
The 29-year-old is an 11-year minor league veteran and has never made it to the big leagues. He was hitting just .244/.314/.395 with four homers and 25 RBI in 53 games at Triple-A Omaha this season.
Andrew Miller (forearm) threw 30 pitches in a successful bullpen session on Saturday.
The left-hander indicated afterwards that he would like to go out on a minor league rehab assignment, to simulate as close to MLB game speed as possible, before rejoining the bullpen. It's unclear if he'll step right back into the closer's role upon his return, or wind up in some sort of timeshare with Dellin Betances.
Chris Young is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Rays.
It appears to be just a routine day of rest for Young. Ramon Flores will start in his place in left field and bat sixth against opposing right-hander Nathan Karns.
Logan Forsythe is not in the Rays starting lineup on Saturday against the Yankees.
He'll take a seat against tough opposing right-hander Michael Pineda. Jake Elmore will draw the start in his place at second base and bat eighth for the Rays on Saturday.
Brian McCann is not in Yankees starting lineup on Saturday.
It has become commonplace for Yankees manager Joe Girardi to rest McCann on Saturday when the Yankees play an afternoon game following a night game. Friday night's hero will step aside and John Murphy will work behind the plate for the Bombers and bat seventh on Saturday.
