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.

A.J. Cole left his start with Triple-A Syracuse on Monday after two innings due to groin tightness.

It's unclear if the issue will require an extended absence. Cole, 23, has made three appearances (one start) with the Nationals this season and owns a 4.40 ERA and 32/19 K/BB ratio over 47 innings in Triple-A.

Giants purchased the contract of INF Ehire Adrianza from Triple-A Fresno.

He'll take Casey McGehee's spot on the 40-man roster. The 25-year-old Adrianza is a .235/.276/.322 hitter over 62 games in the majors and will function as a backup infielder.

Giants designated 3B Casey McGehee for assignment.

McGehee was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento in late-May before returning a couple of weeks later, but now he's officially off the 40-man roster. 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.

Jim Callis of Baseball America reports that the Red Sox have signed first-round pick OF Andrew Benintendi.

Benintendi will receive a bonus of $3,590,400, which equals the full slot value for the No. 7 overall pick. The 20-year-old is highly-regarded for his all-around skills and is expected to stick in center field for the long-term.

Jorge Soler (ankle) went 0-for-3 with an RBI groundout Monday in his first minor league rehab game with Triple-A Iowa.

"He looked good," said Iowa manager Marty Pevey. "He made a great catch down the right-field line in the bullpen and he got his at-bats in, and we'll build on today's game." Assuming Soler feels good, he's expected to play seven to nine innings on Tuesday and get four at-bats. He's on track to join the Cubs this weekend. Soler has been sidelined for about a month with a left ankle sprain.

The Twins have promoted prospect right-hander Jose Berrios to Triple-A Rochester.

Berrios earned the promotion after posting a 3.08 ERA and 92/24 K/BB ratio in 90 2/3 innings across 15 starts with Double-A Chattanooga. The 21-year-old was ranked as the No. 36 prospect in the game by Baseball America coming into the season and he could be knocking on the door for his major league debut before long.

Kris Medlen (elbow) allowed two runs over 3 2/3 innings Monday in a minor league rehab start with Triple-A Omaha.

Medlen, who is working his way back from Tommy John surgery, gave up four hits (including two home runs) while walking none and striking out none. It was his first start in Triple-A after posting a 5.63 ERA and 7/2 K/BB ratio in eight innings over two outings with Double-A Northwest Arkansas. He's on track to join the Royals by mid-July, though it's unclear how he'll be used.
Jun 30 - 10:42 AM

Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) went 0-for-3 with a strikeout Monday in his first minor league rehab game with High-A Tampa.

Ellsbury served as the DH on Monday, but he's expected to play center field on Tuesday. The tentative plan calls for him to be activated on Friday. Ellsbury has been sidelined since May 19 with a right knee sprain.
Jun 30 - 10:33 AM

Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout Monday in his return to action against the Astros.

Cain didn't start Sunday due to a lingering hamstring issue, but he felt good enough to serve as the DH on Monday. He might not be completely out of the woods yet, but it's a good sign.
Jun 30 - 9:24 AM

Jenrry Mejia struck out two batters in a scoreless inning Monday with Triple-A Las Vegas.

It was his first appearance with Triple-A after making two scoreless outings with the Mets' Gulf Coast League affiliate. Mejia is eligible to return from his 80-game PED suspension on July 7. He's likely to set up for Jeurys Familia upon his return.

The Yankees have moved Adam Warren to the bullpen.

Warren is the odd-man out now that Ivan Nova is back from the disabled list. It's an expected move, though CC Sabathia is probably more deserving to lose his rotation spot. Warren has a solid 3.59 ERA and 54/26 K/BB ratio in 82 2/3 innings over 14 starts this season.
Jun 30 - 8:29 AM

Nathan Eovaldi will start Wednesday against the Angels.

In turn, Adam Warren will be moved to the bullpen. Eovaldi allowed two runs over six innings against the Astros in his last start and owns a 4.81 ERA and 60/22 K/BB ratio over 82 1/3 innings on the year.
Jun 30 - 8:26 AM

Allen Webster took a no-decision, giving up four runs in 3 2/3 innings, but the Diamondbacks still managed to pull out a 10-6 win against the Dodgers on Monday.

Webster allowed three solo home runs in the fourth inning, proving to be his undoing. Two were back-to-back shots by Andre Ethier and Yasmani Grandal. The third was a tape-measure shot by Joc Pederson. Following that, Webster issued a walk and a single before getting yanked. All told, he gave up five hits, walked four, and struck out three. In four starts, Webster has a 7.11 ERA with a 1.68 WHIP and a 12/14 K/BB ratio over 19 innings. He's due to start at home against the Rockies next.
Jun 30 - 1:40 AM

Nick Ahmed went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a stolen base in Monday's win against the Dodgers.

Ahmed clubbed a two-run home run to left-center off of Joel Peralta in the fifth inning to put the Diamondbacks on the board. The 25-year-old has struggled as the Diamondbacks' regular shortstop, batting .233/.303/.348 with five home runs, 18 RBI, and four stolen bases.
