The Astros made room on their roster and demoted Colin Moran to Triple-A for Gomez to rejoin the 25-man roster. Gomez has struggled mightily this year, but he's shown he's an elite talent in years past and the Astros hope he can revert back to the player he was in Milwaukee.

Twins recall Byron Buxton from Triple-A Rochester.

Added 1 hour ago Source
As soon as Danny Santana came down with an injury the Twins knew he was headed for the disabled list and that meant they were calling up Byron Buxton. Buxton had an awful time with the team at the start of the year but once he was sent down he began to rake. He hit .336 with six homers and 14 RBI at Triple-A. He's a must-own player going forward. Don't expect him to be back in the minor leagues anytime soon.

Manager Pete Mackanin said Monday that Ryan Howard has not been benched, but he will lose some playing time to Tommy Joseph moving forward.

The former National League MVP is slowly losing playing time so the team can get a look at a promising young prospect. For the majority of this season, Howard has only been playing against right-handed pitchers. Now, even that is being cut back due to his .157 batting average and 52 strikeouts.

Manager Robin Ventura said the White Sox will wait to make a decision about placing Austin Jackson (toe) on the disabled list.

Added 2 hours ago Source
The White Sox aren't sure how long Jackson will be out, but they feel like it won't be long enough to place him on the 15-day disabled list. Jackson has been absolutely crushing the ball lately as he is hitting .464 over his last 31 plate appearances. Chicago called up J.B. Shuck before Monday's game and started him in center field in Jackson's place.

Emmanuel Burris will likely lose his roster spot when Cody Asche is activated from the disabled list.

Added 3 hours ago Source
Ashe's return is imminent which means someone will have to be taken off the roster to make room, and it appears that Burriss will be that guy. Having only 33 at-bats in 27 games, Burriss hasn't shown that is is capable of performing well in either a starter role or off the bench. His .121 BA and .194 OBP show that he could use the time in the minors to work on his approach at the plate.

Giancarlo Stanton (side) could return Tuesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Added 3 hours ago Source
Stanton missed his sixth straight games yesterday with soreness in his side but could possibly return today. Giancarlo said earlier that he expected to play in this series, even if it was to just pinch hit. Even that didn't happen in yesterdays game, so hopefully he will be able to find his way back into the game today.
