Efren Navarro was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Navarro was just up to fill in as depth with Mike Trout banged up, but wasn't seeing much in the way of work. He'll head back down and likely return when there is another depth need. Analysis: Howard Bender

John Mayberry Jr. has been officially released by the Mets.

With the additions of Yoenis Cespedes and Kelly Johnson, the Mets are flush with outfield help. Mayberry will look to pick up with another team in need of a bench bat. Analysis: Howard Bender

Brooks Brown (shoulder) made a rehab appearance at Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday. He pitched one scoreless inning.

Brown hit the DL in June with shoulder inflammation but finally appears ready. He'll make another appearance or two in the minors but should then rejoin the Rockies bullpen soon after. Analysis: Howard Bender

Travis Shaw was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday and is in the starting lineup.

With Pablo Sandoval nursing a bone bruise, Shaw will get the opportunity to work the hot corner for a little while. It may just be a game or two, but keep tabs on Sandoval's recovery for a more set timetable. Analysis: Howard Bender

Jake Odorizzi will now start for the Rays on Sunday.

Odorizzi will push up a day to take the start in place of Nate Karns. Whether or not Karns is going to just swap or have a start skipped is not yet known. Manager Kevin Cash could just like the match-up better as Karns would then be facing the White Sox while Odorizzi takes on a slightly more troublesome lineup in Boston. Analysis: Howard Bender

Russell Martin is not in the Blue Jays lineup on Saturday.

Just a day of rest for Martin here. Nothing more. He'll be replaced by Dioner Navarro, so if you are looking for a cheap catcher on that early slate on Fan Duel, he's just $2,200 while batting sixth in the lineup. Analysis: Howard Bender

Wade Davis says his back feels better and will test it playing catch before Saturday game.

Davis was held out of Friday's game due to back stiffness, but the club didn't seem to think it was more than just a day-to-day thing. If all goes well in his session prior to Saturday's game, he could be available. Analysis: Howard Bender

Red Sox optioned RHP Jonathan Aro to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Aro was just up for bullpen depth and wasn't even used. He'll head back to the minors where he should remain for most of, if not all of, the second half. Analysis: Howard Bender

Troy Tulowitzki is not in the Blue Jays lineup on Saturday.

It's just a day of rest for Tulo as manager John Gibbons wants to make sure he's not too overwhelmed after the move. Muneori Kawasaki will handle the work at shortstop for the day. Analysis: Howard Bender

Hanley Ramirez (foot) has returned to the lineup on Saturday.

After a one game absence due to a foot injury for the Red Sox, Hanley will be back in the lineup on Saturday. Ramirez is putting together a solid season over in Boston, hitting .263 with 19 home runs and 49 RBI.  Analysis: Dillon Conklin

Alex Gordon is hitting off a tee again on Saturday.

Gordon is taking steps forward to make his return to the club. He will begin hitting off a tee and should resume baseball activity soon. Expect him to make his return sometime in mid-August.  Analysis: Dillon Conklin

Danny Valencia has been designated for assignment.

Another one bites the dust for the Blue Jays as they make a push for the playoffs. Valencia has been designated for assignment to make room for the newcomers. He may be looked at by some teams who need bench help but he will most likely find his way down to the minors.  Analysis: Dillon Conklin
