  • Twins designate Matt Guerrier for assignment
    Twins designated RHP Matt Guerrier for assignment.

    Advice: Guerrier had a 3.86 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 12/10 K/BB ratio in 28 innings out of the Minnesota bullpen. The 35-year-old right-hander could draw interest on waivers.

  • Glen Perkins nails down 24th save
    Glen Perkins notched his 24th save of the season with a scoreless inning in Wednesday's win over the Indians.

    Advice: Carlos Santana smacked a double off the left field wall to lead off the inning, but Perkins retired the side with a flyout and pair of strikeouts to end the threat. The left-hander has been scored upon in just one of his last 10 appearances to lower his ERA to 2.76.

  • Sergio Santos outrighted to Triple-A
    Blue Jays sent RHP Sergio Santos outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: The Jays had designated the disappointing reliever for assignment earlier in the week. He could get another chance later this season if he irons out his issues at Buffalo.

  • Phillippe Aumont recalled from Triple-A
    Phillies recalled RHP Phillippe Aumont from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Aumont has allowed four runs over 1 2/3 relief innings with the big club this season. The former top prospect still throws hard but control issues have kept him from reaching his potential.

  • Tony Sipp drawing trade interest
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Tony Sipp has "drawn the most interest of any Astros player."

    Advice: Sipp was scooped up by the Astros in May after opting out of a minor league deal with the Padres and has gone on to post a 2.45 ERA and terrific 41/7 K/BB ratio over 29 1/3 relief innings. Heyman lists the Angels, Braves and Orioles as possible fits for Sipp.

  • Chris Leroux called up by Yankees
    Yankees purchased the contract of RHP Chris Leroux from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Leroux was designated for assignment by the Yankees back in May after allowing five runs on five hits and a pair of walks in one inning of work. He's getting another chance now but will be used in low-leverage innings.

  • Nick Greenwood optioned to Triple-A
    Cardinals optioned LHP Nick Greenwood to Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: Greenwood posted a 4.74 ERA while striking out 10 over 19 relief innings with the big club. He was no longer needed with Kevin Siegrist back from the disabled list.

  • Kevin Gregg won't return when eligible
    Kevin Gregg (elbow) has yet to resume throwing.

    Advice: Gregg is eligible to return early next week but isn't expected to be ready at that time. The veteran reliever was placed on the disabled list shortly after the All-Star break with soreness in his pitching elbow.

  • Logan Darnell to start on Saturday
    The Twins are expected to recall Logan Darnell from Triple-A Rochester to start on Saturday versus the White Sox.

    Advice: Kris Johnson was sent down after Monday's start, so the Twins need another arm for this weekend. Darnell tossed three perfect relief innings earlier this season for Minnesota and holds a 3.43 ERA over 17 Triple-A starts this year. The 25-year-old can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

  • Santiago tosses five shutout innings vs BAL
    Hector Santiago did not factor into the decision in Tuesday's game against the Orioles, throwing five scoreless innings and allowing two hits and three walks.

    Advice: While Santiago was able to keep the Orioles off the board, he had already thrown 99 pitches by the time the fifth inning was finished. The Angels have used him both out of the bullpen and in the rotation (thirteen starts in seventeen appearances). Despite the occasional struggle, he has a 4.02 ERA and has been a useful piece for the Halos. He'll take on the Tigers next time out.

  • Mejia notches 13th save in win over SEA
    Jenrry Mejia pitched a scoreless ninth inning to pick up his thirteenth save of the year on Tuesday against the Mariners.

    Advice: Mejia did walk one batter, but otherwise put up zeroes across the stat-line. The scoreless inning dropped his ERA to 3.80. While the ERA doesn't look particularly sparkling for a closer, Mejia has only given up one run over his last ten appearances. He also has 66 strikeouts in just over 66 innings and is 13-for-15 in save chances since assuming the closer's role.

  • deGrom pitches third straight gem vs Mariners
    Jacob deGrom threw seven innings of one-run ball against the Mariners to pick up his fourth win on Tuesday.

    Advice: Jacob deGrom tossed a third straight gem on Tuesday, striking out seven and walking just one over seven frames. It's the sixth straight start in which deGrom has not allowed more than three runs. In the process, he's dropped his ERA to 3.01. This is also the third straight start in which deGrom's gone seven innings. If he can keep lasting deep into games, he'll continue to provide nice strikeout and ERA boosts. He'll square off with the Brewers next time out.

  • Petit takes no-decision in a marathon win
    Yusmeiro Petit went home with a no-decision, allowing five runs in five innings as the Giants outlasted the Phillies in a 14-inning win on Tuesday.

    Advice: Petit was starting in place of the injured Matt Cain. The top of the Phillies' lineup had his number, particularly in a three-run fifth-inning which included a Jimmy Rollins two-run home run. Overall, Petit yielded seven hits and two walks while striking out five. Pitching mostly out of the bullpen, Petit has a 4.24 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 71/17 K/BB ratio. He'll start against the Dodgers at home on Sunday.

  • Chen holds White Sox to one run in victory
    Bruce Chen held the White Sox to one run over five innings in a win Tuesday.

    Advice: Chen's only mistake was a home run by Adam Dunn, but the left-hander limited the Sox to four hits and no runs over the rest of his time on the mound. It was his first win since April 19 and just his second win overall. Chen has filled in admirably in Jason Vargas' absence, but with Vargas nearing a return Chen will soon fade back into fantasy irrelevance.

  • Carroll touched for 11 hits, five runs vs. KC
    Scott Carroll was roughed up for 11 hits and five runs over five innings in a loss to the Royals on Tuesday.

    Advice: The right-hander, who had allowed just three hits and zero runs over his past two starts combined, gave up five extra-base hits, including a home run, in the loss. He also walked two and struck out three. Carroll owns a 4.52 ERA and 1.53 WHIP through 73 2/3 innings, and he's a non-factor for fantasy purposes going forward.
    Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Blue Jays designate Santos for assignment
    Blue Jays designated RHP Sergio Santos for assignment.

    Advice: Santos had posted a dreadful 7.78 ERA and 2.09 WHIP in 19 2/3 innings this season out of the Blue Jays' bullpen. But the 31-year-old right-hander registered a 1.75 ERA and 0.58 WHIP in 25 2/3 frames last season and could draw interest from teams on the waiver wire.

  • Petit to start for Giants on Tuesday vs. PHI
    Yusmeiro Petit will start for the Giants on Tuesday night against the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.

    Advice: Petit is filling in for Matt Cain, who was placed on the disabled list Monday morning with right elbow inflammation. Petit, 29, has a solid 3.86 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 66/15 K/BB ratio in 63 innings (five starts and 21 relief appearances) this season for San Francisco. He makes for a decent streamer in deep mixed fantasy leagues.

  • Angels edge Mariners 3-2 in 16 innings
    Hector Santiago finished up with 2 2/3 scoreless innings for the win as the Angels beat the Mariners 3-2 in 16 innings on Friday.

    Advice: Several teams still have expanded bullpens right now after the All-Star break, and the Angels needed theirs tonight. Eight relievers combined on 10 scoreless innings after Jered Weaver allowed two runs over six frames, and the Angels finally broke through when pinch-hitter Efren Navarro singled in Mike Trout in the 16th. It was just Santiago's second straight win after seven consecutive losses to begin the season.

  • Jenrry Mejia picks up 11th save
    Jenrry Mejia notched his 11th save with a scoreless ninth Friday against the Padres.

    Advice: Mejia gave up an infield single with two outs, but he quickly got a groundout to end it. He's now 11-for-13 in save chances since assuming the closer's role.
    Friday, 10:27 pm
  • Kevin Gregg (elbow) placed on DL
    Marlins placed RHP Kevin Gregg on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 14, with right elbow inflammation.

    Advice: Gregg evidently must have felt something during his final relief appearance before the All-Star break. It's not clear how long he'll be sidelined.
