Recalled: LHP Brooks Raley
Designated for assignment: RHP Eduardo Sanchez
Placed on 7-day DL: RHP Eddie Orozco
Reinstated from DL: RHP Barret Loux, 3B Brad Zapenas, SS Junior Lake, SS Edwin Maysonet

A fourth-round selection in 2010, lefty Hunter Ackerman concentrated most of his Cubs career in the Rookie-level Arizona League, making just nine relief appearances at short-season Boise last season (1.70 WHIP, 11.3 SO/9 in 22 innings).

Henry Rodriguez still throws 97 mph, but he also walked about every fifth batter (18.6 percent) he faced with the Nationals in 17 appearances this season, leading to a 1.67 WHIP and 11-to-16 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Washington had designated him for assignment.

Chicago White Sox
Signed:
RHP David Cales (released by Cubs, May 20), RHP Michael Nix (Sugar Land (Atlantic)), RHP Mike Recchia (Windy City (Frontier)), RHP Jacob Sanchez (Joliet (Frontier))

Cincinnati Reds
Signed:
C J.R. Reynolds (NDFA—Ohio), 3B Joe Jocketty (NDFA—Miami-Hamilton (Ohio)), OF Corey Wimberly (released by Braves, May 30)
Draft picks signed: RHP Ben Lively (4), RHP Joe Mantoni (18), RHP Daniel Wright (10), 1B Logan Uxa (32), SS Cory Thompson (5), OF Dalton Carter (17), OF Phillip Ervin (1)
Released: RHP Mike MacDougal, 1B Dominic D’Anna, SS Michael Gilmartin
Recalled: RHP Curtis Partch, LHP Tony Cingrani, 2B Henry Rodriguez
Optioned to Triple-A: RHP Logan Ondrusek, RHP Pedro Villarreal, 2B Henry Rodriguez

Transferred to 60-day DL: RHP Ryan Kemp, 1B Sean Buckley
Reinstated from DL: RHP Jesus Adames, RHP Sal Romano, SS Jason Donald

Robert Stephenson’s upward trajectory with low Class A Dayton—he’s 4-0, 0.92 in his past six starts, with 50 strikeouts and five walks in 39 innings—will be interrupted as he recovers from a strained left hamstring.

The Reds signed a pair of undrafted Ohio college players after the draft who happen to be the progeny of Reds executives. Joe Jocketty, whom the Cubs drafted out of a St. Louis high school in ’09, is the son of GM Walt Jocketty. J.R. Reynolds, who previously attended Cincinnati’s Moeller High, is the son of pro/global scouting director Terry Reynolds.

Cleveland Indians
Signed:
LHP J.C. Romero (released by Nationals, June 1), 2B Paddy Matera (Camden (Atlantic))
Draft pick signed: C Shane Rowland (20)
Recalled: RHP Carlos Carrasco
Optioned to Triple-A: SS Juan Diaz
Placed on 7-day DL: 1B Matt LaPorta, OF Luigi Rodriguez
Reinstated from DL: RHP Robbie Aviles, RHP Daisuke Matsuzaka, OF Cedric Hunter, OF Bryson Myles

Colorado Rockies
Draft picks signed:
RHP John Beck (15), RHP Jonathan Gray (1), RHP Jerad McCrummen (23), RHP Matt Pierpont (26), RHP Dylan Stamey (14), RHP Konner Wade (7), LHP Trent Daniel (17), LHP Billy Waltrip (12), 3B Mike Benjamin Jr. (13), OF Sean Dwyer (11), OF Mike Tauchman (10)
Traded: OF Carl Thomore to White Sox for cash considerations
Recalled: RHP Chris Volstad, LHP Josh Outman, OF Tyler Colvin
Optioned to Triple-A: LHP Josh Outman
Placed on 7-day DL: OF Juan Crousset, OF Greg Golson, OF Kyle Parker
Reinstated from DL: OF Greg Golson, OF Tim Wheeler

You don’t often see a premium pick from a recent draft change teams in a minor league deal, but the fact the Rockies found a trade partner for 2011 second-rounder Carl Thomore suggests that the White Sox had good reports on him from his high school days in East Brunswick, N.J. The 20-year-old Thomore spent two seasons in the Rookie-level Pioneer League, batting .196/.308/.309 in 238 plate appearances. The corner outfielder has present strength and power, though he’ll need to recover from lower-half injuries that have cut into his playing time.

RHP Johnnie Kirkland (25), RHP Jon Maciel (18), RHP Zach Reininger (8), C Austin Green (13), C Duncan McAlpine (16), 2B Taylor Johnson (40)

Optioned to Triple-A: RHP Tyler Thornburg
Placed on 7-day DL: RHP Leonard Lorenzo

Reinstated from DL: 2B Michael Fabiaschi
Optioned to Double-A: 3B Vinnie Catricala

The Athletics acquired DFA’d third baseman Vinnie Catricala from the Mariners, perhaps for the righthander’s ability to punish Double-A lefties. He hit .347/.407/.531 with seven extra-base hits in 49 at-bats at Jackson this season.

Philadelphia Phillies

RHP Tyler Buckley (27), RHP Chris Burgess (26), RHP Mark Leiter Jr. (22), RHP Shane Martin (9), RHP Mark Meadors (21), RHP Jon Prosinski (10), RHP Lee Ridenhour (16), RHP Matt Soren (19), RHP Matt Southard (28), RHP David Whitehead (34), LHP Cody Forsythe (25), LHP Rob Marcello (17), LHP Chris O’Hare (23), C Corey Bass (20), 3B Logan Pierce (15), OF Nick Ferdinand (35), OF Justin Parr (8), OF Cord Sandberg (3)

Reinstated from DL: C Tommy Joseph, OF Peter Lavin

The aftereffects of a May 4 concussion have forced Tommy Joseph back to the disabled list after he went 1-for-18 for high Class A Clearwater during a rehab assignment.

The Phillies released Boca Raton, Fla., prep shortstop Tyler Greene, an 11th-round pick in 2011, and not the big league utility infielder of the same name.

Washington Nationals
Signed:
SS Michael Gilmartin (released by Reds, June 7)
Traded: RHP Henry Rodriguez to Cubs for RHP Ian Dickson
Recalled: LHP Xavier Cedeno, 1B Chris Marrero
Added to 40-man roster: RHP Ross Ohlendorf
Optioned to Triple-A: LHP Tyler Robertson, OF Tyler Moore
Optioned to Double-A: RHP Nate Karns
Placed on 7-day DL: RHP Colin Bates, RHP Ronald Pena, RHP Cameron Selik, LHP Sammy Solis, C Thor Meeks
Reinstated from DL: SS Brian Bocock

Ian Dickson signed for a six-figure bonus ($100,000) out of the 35th round of the 2011 draft, and despite a 6.88 ERA for low Class A Kane County prior to the trade, he showed swing-and-miss stuff (8.2 SO/9) and decent control (3.8 BB/9) while working mostly out of the bullpen. He’s 6-foot-5 and still relatively young (22), the type of lottery a team can expect when trading Henry Rodriguez, who had been designated for assignment.

Sammy Solis’ return from Tommy John surgery hit a bump in the road when he hit the DL with what the Nationals are calling shoulder fatigue.
