by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:02 pm ET) The Rangers have optioned first baseman/outfielder Jake Smolinski to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday. Smolinski has been up and down with the team this year, and has had limited playing time due to the returns of Mitch Moreland and Josh Hamilton and the emergence of Delino DeShields.

Smolinski is 8 for 53 with a home run and six RBI for the Rangers in 2015. The team recalled pitcher Jon Edwards from Triple-A to take his place on the roster.


Red Sox using six-man rotation to give starters rest
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:58 am ET) Without an off-day on Thursday, Red Sox manager John Farrell wanted to give his starters an extra day's rest heading into the weekend. So, the team will call up prospect Eduardo Rodriguez to start Thursday's game against the Rangers, with the rest of the rotation being pushed back a day.

Steven Wright, who was originally scheduled to go on Thursday, will now pitch Friday. He will be followed by Wade Miley and Joe Kelly. Clay Buchholz will open the three-game set with the Twins at home on Monday. 

The Red Sox don't have a scheduled off-day until June 8.

Rodriguez is being called up from Triple-A to start Thursday, and Farrell said he will get the one start for now, according to the Boston Herald. Though it remains to be seen if the team in fact sends him down after Thursday.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:41 am ET) Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Twins due to a sore right shoulder. Castillo jammed the shoulder while diving to make a catch in Tuesday's game. At this point, there are no talks of a possible trip to the disabled list, but there is no timetable for his return to the lineup.

Castillo is hitting .200 (3 for 15) in four games since being recalled from Triple-A. 


Rangers to recall RP Jon Edwards on Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:38 am ET) The Rangers are recalling right-hander Jon Edwards from Triple-A on Wednesday. Edwards had a brief stint with the big club this season, making one relief appearance without recording an out. In 2014, he appeared in nine games for the Rangers, allowing four earned runs in 8 1/3 innings.

He's made 18 relief outings with Round Rock this season, owning a 1.15 ERA in 15 2/3 innings.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(11:38 am ET) Phillies starter Chad Billingsley will visit doctors on Friday to have his shoulder examined, per The News Journal.

Billingsley -- diagnosed with a Grade 2 right lat strain -- is also expected to start playing catch as his rehab continues to progress. He will need at least one rehab start before rejoining the rotation.

Billingsley is 0-2 with a 6.75 ERA and 7:3 K:BB ratio in 16 innings.

Smith was handed an eight-game suspension last week after he was ejected from a May 21 outing against the Braves for having a foreign substance on his arm.


Report: Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez to join the club
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:31 am ET) Red Sox left-handed pitching prospect Eduardo Rodriguez is reportedly on his way to join the team for a what could be just a spot start in the coming days, a source told the Providence Journal.

Rodriguez, the No. 59 prospect in baseball according to Baseball America, has been pitching at Triple-A Pawtucket this season and holds a 4-3 record and a 2.98 ERA. In 48 1/3 innings, he has ratios of 8.2 K/9 and 1.3 BB/9 over his eight starts.
