Carlos Ruiz's activation among Phillies roster moves
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:23 pm ET) The Phillies made a few roster moves Wednesday, which included removing catcher Carlos Ruiz (concussion) from the 7-day disabled list.

The Phillies also recalled reliever Phillippe Aumont from Triple-A Lehigh Valley, optioned catcher Cameron Rupp to Triple-A and designated pitcher Jeff Manship for assignment.


Sergio Santos clears waivers, shuffled off to Buffalo
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:23 pm ET) Blue Jays reliever Sergio Santos has cleared waivers and will report to Triple-A Buffalo.

The veteran right-hander was designated for assignment on July 12 after a miserable stretch in which he yielded five runs on seven hits in 2 1/3 innings to balloon his ERA on the season to 7.78.


Nationals recall infielder Zach Walters
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:19 pm ET) The Nationals recalled infielder Zach Walters from Triple-A Syracuse to take the roster spot of third baseman Ryan Zimmerman, who was placed on the disabled list Wednesday with a hamstring injury. It's the second time Walters has been on the major-league roster this season.

Jayson Werth getting a few days to rest sore right knee
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:16 pm ET) Nationals manager Matt Williams said outfielder Jayson Werth is dealing with a sore right knee, which is an injury that has been lingering, according to MASNsports.com. The thinking behind keeping Werth out of the lineup Wednesday at Colorado is it will give him two days off coupled with Thursday's off-day.

Werth is having a big month at the plate in July, batting .377 with a .472 on-base percentage, .852 slugging percentage and 1.325 OPS in 16 games. He also has six home runs, 11 doubles, 16 runs and 20 RBI.


Setback all but kills shot at return this year for Joel Hanrahan
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:14 pm ET) Reliever Joel Hanrahan has experienced a setback in his recovery from Tommy John surgery and has been shut down by the Tigers. The move all but eliminates any chance of him returning this season.

Hanrhan has been sidelined since early May 2013.


Noah Syndergaard could join Mets rotation in August?
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:09 pm ET) Although Mets manager Terry Collins isn't sure if starting pitcher prospect Noah Syndergaard will make his major-league debut in 2014, others in the organization anticipate the top pitching prospect being in the majors as early as August, according to the New York Daily News.

They view Syndergaard as a potential replacement for Bartolo Colon, who is being mentioned in trade rumors.

"In the worst case, it would be (Daisuke) Matsuzaka, and in the best case, it would be Syndergaard," one source said, explaining why the organization would be comfortable replacing Colon over the next two months.


Report: Zach McAllister to start Saturday against Royals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:06 pm ET) What was expected has been all but confirmed. The Indians will promote right-hander Zach McAllister from Triple-A Columbus to start Saturday in Kansas City, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

McAllister has earned a spot in the rotation with a strong run with the Clippers, followed by two starts with the Indians in which he surrendered just four runs in 12 1/3 innings.


Ryan Zimmerman placed on DL for second time this year
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:00 pm ET) The Nationals announced Wednesday third baseman Ryan Zimmerman was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a right hamstring strain. It his second stint on the disabled list this season, as he missed 44 games earlier this year with a fractured right thumb.

The injury comes at a bad time for Zimmerman, who is batting .387 with a .613 slugging percentage and 1.050 OPS in his last 17 games. He has two home runs, eight doubles and 17 RBI in that span.


Aramis Ramirez to continue career past 2014 season
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:49 pm ET) Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez, who appeared in his 2,000th MLB game Wednesday, said he has decided to continue his career past the 2014 season, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"I'm going to go for 2,500 (games) so let's see what happens," Ramirez said. "I'm only 36; I'll be OK. I'm playing past this year, for sure. I don't know how much longer but definitely more years. I'll see where I'm at after the season but I feel good right now. Health is the main thing. My body is telling me I can still play."

Ramirez has a mutual option for $14 million for next season. If Ramirez exercises the option and the Brewers decline, he gets a $4 million buyout.

"That, I don't think about," he said. "I don't really like to talk about contracts during the season. They haven't approached me about anything, either, so we'll see what happens.

"I like it here. It's the reason I came here. I have no regrets. I've had a great three years here. I've liked it. It's a good place to play baseball. A great stadium; we have a roof (so) I don't have to worry about the conditions. A good team. We just missed the playoffs my first year here. This year, we're in the pennant race. So, we have a good team and it was the right choice."


Yankees promote one righty, DFA another
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:48 pm ET) The Yankees have made moves with two right-handers. They have designated for assignment Bruce Billings while calling up Chris Leroux from Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre.

The 30-year-old Leroux made two regrettable appearances with New York earlier this season, giving up five earned runs on seven hits in two innings pitched.
