Herrera, 28, is 1-2 with three saves and a 4.76 ERA in 19 appearances for Washington since being obtained from the Kansas City Royals. He was 1-1 with 14 saves and a 1.05 ERA in 27 games prior to the trade.

—The Boston Red Sox activated third baseman Rafael Devers from the 10-day disabled list prior to their game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Devers, 21, is batting .245 with 15 homers and 52 RBIs this season. The Red Sox optioned infielder Tony Renda to Triple-A Pawtucket in a corresponding move.
