Rangers designated RHP Roman Mendez for assignment.
It clears a 40-man roster spot. Mendez has allowed seven runs over 11 2/3 relief innings this season with the big club.
Rangers recalled LHP Alex Claudio from Triple-A Round Rock; placed him on the 60-day disabled list with a left groin strain.
The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster. Claudio will miss the rest of the season with the injury.
Red Sox purchased the contract of 1B/OF Allen Craig from Triple-A Pawtucket.
Craig hasn't been the same player since suffering a Lisfranc injury with St. Louis in late 2013. He is highly doubtful to hold fantasy value down the stretch.
Twins minor leaguer Adrian Salcedo has been suspended 100 games after testing positive for the second time for Heptaminol, a stimulant.
That'll cap off a highly dissapointing 2015 for the 24-year-old right-hander, who posted a 4.70 ERA in 23 innings between Double-A Chattanooga and Triple-A Rochester. Salcedo might be cut loose from the Twins this winter.
Twins manager Paul Molitor said Tuesday that Jose Berrios could still be called up.
But the Minnesota skipper wouldn't offer anything concrete about the situation. Berrios wasn't included in the Twins' initial round of September callups despite boasting a 2.67 ERA, 1.098 WHIP, and 78/13 K/BB ratio in 70 1/3 innings (11 starts) this season at Triple-A. Molitor noted that the club is worried about Berrios' workload and wary of using the 21-year-old right-hander in relief.
