Left fielder Jared Mitchell, the club’s first-round pick in 2009, has checked in at Triple-A Charlotte in each of the past three seasons, but the results haven’t been pretty, so now he checks in at Double-A Birmingham for the third straight year.

Double-A Huntsville outfielder Mitch Haniger hit the disabled list after hyperextending his elbow during a swing. The 2012 supplemental first-rounder had been finding his swing in the Southern League, batting .333/.380/.591 with seven homers in his past 25 games.

Placed on 60-day DL: RHP Ty Bashlor, RHP Carlos Gomez
Reinstated from DL: RHP Noah Syndergaard

Triple-A Las Vegas righty Rafael Montero left his June 14 start after five pitches with what turned out to be a strained left oblique. He logged a 4.15 ERA in three starts since being demoted back to Triple-A, though with an unhealthy ratio of eight strikeouts, six walks and 13 hits allowed in 8 2/3 innings.

Lefthander Steve Matz went 4-4, 2.21 in 12 starts at high Class A St. Lucie, striking out 8.0 per nine innings and not allowing a home run in 69 innings, which earned him the bump to Double-A Binghamton. The 2009 second-rounder has experienced relatively smooth sailing since returning from a lengthy Tommy John surgery rehab in the second half of 2012.


New York Yankees

RHP Heath Bell (released by Orioles, June 10), RHP Travis Hissong (NDFA—Wright State), RHP Matt Marsh (NDFA—Liberty), RHP Mike Noteware (NDFA—Lewis-Clark State (Idaho)), C Jake Hernandez (NDFA—Southern California), SS Tyler Palmer (NDFA—Thomas (Ga.))

Drafted out of Illinois after the 20th round in both 2012 (Yankees) and 2013 (Athletics), righthander Kevin Johnson didn’t sign either time. He was injured in 2013 and subsequently had Tommy John surgery, but Oakland stayed on him and signed Johnson as a nondrafted free agent last week.

Placed on 60-day DL: RHP Juan Bautista
Reinstated from DL: RHP Jose Almarante, RHP Tyrell Jenkins, RHP Boone Whiting, OF Anthony Garcia

The Cardinals’ crowded outfield depth chart struck again, when 26-year-old Mike O’Neill rode the shuttle back to Double-A Springfield now that Triple-A Memphis is operating at full capacity with Randal Grichuk, Stephen Piscotty and Oscar Taveras. O’Neill went 8-for-26 (.308) with four walks and one strikeout in nine games for the Redbirds.

San Francisco Giants
Draft picks signed:

Optioned to Triple-A: RHP George Kontos

Reinstated from DL: RHP Joan Gregorio, LHP Jose De Paula, C Andrew Susac, 2B Will Callaway, OF Ryan Lollis

The Giants assigned 23-year-old Cuban center fielder Daniel Carbonell to short-season Salem-Keizer, but he’s not on the active roster, so this could be a paperwork move. The righthanded hitter, who signed for four years and a guaranteed $1.4 million, can really run but is not regarded as a safe bet as a hitter.


Seattle Mariners
Draft picks signed:
RHP Vinny Nittoli (25), RHP Rohn Pierce (19), C Dominic Blanco (28), C Wayne Taylor (16), 2B Andy Peterson (27), 3B Kavin Keyes (39), SS Chris Mariscal (14), SS Taylor Smart (26)

The Nationals released Triple-A Syracuse righthander Ryan Tatusko so that he could sign with Hanwha in Korea, the very same club that lost Caleb Clay when he recently signed a minor league deal with the Angels.

Double-A Harrisburg lefty Matt Purke had Tommy John surgery in June, so the Nationals freed up a reserve roster spot by shifting him to the 60-day disabled list.
