The Minnesota Twins have recalled star prospect Miguel Sano from Double-A Chattanooga.

7/2/2015 Chad Bettis, Col, P
Bettis fell to 4-3 on Wednesday.

7/2/2015 Billy Butler, Oak, DH
Butler was 2 for 3 on Wednesday.

Cuddyer has been given two shots to relieve discomfort in his left knee but expects to avoid the disabled list.

Analysis: Cuddyer was out of New York's starting lineup Wednesday night against the Chicago Cubs after leaving Tuesday's game in the seventh inning. He had an MRI on Wednesday that revealed a slight strain and said doctors told him that was the ''best-case scenario.''
7/1/2015 J.D. Martinez, Det, RF
Martinez went 3 for 6 with a two-run homer in Detroit's 5-4 loss in 14 innings to Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

Kendrick went 4 for 5 with a solo homer in the 10th inning and an RBI single in a 6-4 win over Arizona on Tuesday.

7/1/2015 Delmon Young, Bal, RF
The Baltimore Orioles have designated Young for assignment to expand a thin bullpen in dire need of another arm. Within 10 days, the Orioles must place Young on waivers, trade him, release him or outright him to the minor leagues.

Analysis: Young signed a one-year, $2.25 million deal during the offseason after batting .302 with seven homers and 30 RBIs in 83 games in 2014. He also delivered a clutch three-run double to give the Orioles a win over Detroit in the postseason.
