Yankees pitching prospect Justus Sheffield has been shifted to the bullpen at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to prepare him for a September callup.

Sheffield could probably help the Yankees as a starter down the stretch, but there are legitimate concerns about his overall workload. The 22-year-old left-hander has registered a promising 2.48 ERA, 1.169 WHIP, and 116 strikeouts over 108 2/3 innings (20 starts) this season between Double-A and Triple-A. He logged 98 innings between two minor league levels in 2017. Sheffield is expected to make three or four relief appearances before joining the Yankees' major league roster around September 1.

Mariners designated INF Zach Vincej for assignment.

The move clears a 40-man roster spot for Ross Detwiler, who was called up from Triple-A Tacoma. Vincej, 27, has logged only 13 career at-bats in the major leagues.

Mariners purchased the contract of LHP Ross Detwiler from Triple-A Tacoma.

Detwiler will be available in long relief Tuesday night against the Astros. The 32-year-old southpaw signed with Seattle in June after beginning the season in independent ball. He had a 5.15 ERA through 71 2/3 innings (11 starts, three relief appearances) with Tacoma.

Mariners optioned RHP Chasen Bradford to Triple-A Tacoma.

Bradford has posted a decent 3.23 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 33/11 K/BB ratio in 47 1/3 innings this season, but the Mariners needed a fresh bullpen arm. Ross Detwiler got the call from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Mike Leake was scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday night against the Astros due to illness.

Nick Vincent will take the mound instead, opposing Brad Peacock of the Astros. So it'll essentially be a bullpen game for both teams. Leake should be fine for his next scheduled turn in the rotation.

Scott Schebler (shoulder) is expected to be activated off the disabled list on Thursday.

Schebler, who's been out since July 14 with a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder, went 1-for-4 in his rehab debut Monday with Double-A Pensacola. He'll play one more minor league rehab game Tuesday before taking a day of rest. The 27-year-old should close out the 2018 season as the Reds' everyday right fielder.

Buster Posey (hip) is expected to play Wednesday.

John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday evening that Posey is facing season-ending hip surgery to repair his labrum and clean out bone spurs, but that procedure apparently won't happen right away as the Giants don't want to wave the white flag on 2018 just yet. They're currently 7 1/2 games back of the Diamondbacks for first place in the National League West standings and seven games out of the crowded hunt for the second National League Wild Card slot. Nick Hundley is starting behind the plate for the Giants on Tuesday versus the Mets.

Orioles pitching prospect Hunter Harvey has been shut down for the season with right elbow discomfort.

He's scheduled to visit a specialist on Wednesday morning near the Orioles' spring training complex in Sarasota, Florida. Harvey, who has a laundry list of past arm problems, pitched just 32 1/3 innings this season in the minors, to the tune of a 5.57 ERA. The 23-year-old right-hander was the 22nd overall pick in the 2013 MLB Draft out of a high school in North Carolina.
