  • Phillies place John Mayberry on 15-day DL
    Phillies placed OF John Mayberry Jr. on the 15-day disabled list with left wrist inflammation.

    Advice: Darin Ruf has been called up in a corresponding 25-man roster move. There's no timetable for Mayberry's return, though it doesn't sound like an overly serious injury.

  • Rays place Joel Peralta on the disabled list
    Rays placed RHP Joel Peralta on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 13, with a virus.

    Advice: The belief is that Peralta caught the chikungunya virus in the Dominican Republic over the All-Star break. It's an illness that is transferred by mosquitoes in the Caribbean and can cause nasty symptoms for over a week. He should be fine by the end of this month.

    Rangers activated RHP Nick Martinez from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Martinez missed a little over two weeks with a left side injury. He will return to the Rangers' starting rotation on Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium. The 23-year-old righty owns a rough 5.10 ERA and 1.69 WHIP this season.

  • A's activate Josh Reddick (knee) from the DL
    Athletics activated OF Josh Reddick from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Reddick wound up missing over three weeks with a strained right knee. He went 9-for-21 with three home runs and eight RBI on his five-game minor league rehab assignment and will try to build off that offensive success in his return to the majors. The 27-year-old outfielder has a disappointing .229/.296/.358 batting line in 54 games this season for Oakland.

  • Cubs activate Bonifacio from 15-day DL
    Cubs activated INF/OF Emilio Bonifacio from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Darwin Barney has been designated for assignment in a corresponding roster move. Bonifacio has been sidelined since mid-June with a strained right oblique and will return to a .261/.307/.340 batting line to go along with 13 steals and 29 runs scored over 61 games.

  • Blue Jays call up Rogers from Triple-A
    Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Esmil Rogers from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Rogers posted a 6.97 ERA over 16 appearances at the major league level earlier this season, but he's back because the Blue Jays need a fresh arm for their bullpen. Look for him to pitch in long relief.
    Today, 12:23 pm
  • Blue Jays call up prospect Aaron Sanchez
    Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Aaron Sanchez from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Sanchez is a highly-regarded starting pitching prospect, but the Jays will break him into the majors as a reliever. The 22-year-old has posted a 3.95 ERA and 84/57 K/BB ratio over 100 1/3 innings this season between Double- and Triple-A.

  • Blue Jays send down Darin Mastroianni
    Blue Jays optioned OF Darin Mastroianni to Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Mastroianni is hitting .156 (5-for-32) with one home run and two RBI over 14 games this season. He could be back in September.

  • Yankees officially acquire 3B Chase Headley
    Yankees acquired 3B Chase Headley and cash considerations from the Padres for INF Yangervis Solarte and RHP Rafael De Paula.

    Advice: The deal is now official. Headley's stock has plummeted since his breakout season in 2012, but he's a worthwhile gamble for the Yankees given their current options at third base. The 30-year-old has swung the bat better of late and has good road numbers for his career, so it would be no surprise if he finishes his walk year on a high note.
    Today, 10:40 am
  • Padres acquire Solarte in Headley deal
    Padres acquired INF Yangervis Solarte and RHP Rafael De Paula from the Yankees for 3B Chase Headley and cash considerations.

    Advice: The Yankees picked Solarte up for nothing over the winter and managed to turn him into an upgrade at third base. Pretty nice work by GM Brian Cashman. For San Diego, this was mostly about getting anything for Headley, who will be a free agent after the season. A qualifying offer wasn't a realistic option, as he likely would have accepted a one-year deal in the range of $15 million. Solarte could see some time at third base down the stretch in San Diego, but his days of fantasy relevancy are likely already behind him.

  • Padres acquire RHP De Paula from Yankees
    Padres acquired RHP Rafael De Paula from the Yankees in the Chase Headley deal.

    Advice: The Padres also acquired Yangervis Solarte, but De Paula is the most intriguing piece. The 23-year-old owns a 4.15 ERA and 104/38 K/BB ratio over 89 innings this season with High-A Tampa. He has a big arm and has struggled with his control at times, so some believe he could end up in the bullpen in the long-term.

  • Report: Yankees acquire Headley from Padres
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees have acquired third baseman Chase Headley from the Padres.

    Advice: Neither team has confirmed the deal, but the Yankees will send infielder Yangervis Solarte and prospect right-hander right-hander Rafael De Paula to the Padres. New York will also receive $1 million from San Diego to help cover part of the nearly $4 million remaining on Headley's contract for this season.

  • Pirates C prospect McGuire 3 hits, double
    Pirates prospect catcher Reese McGuire went 3-for-5 with a double for Low-A West Virginia on Monday.

    Advice: McGuire had a brutal June, hitting .213/.272/.267, and has improved slightly in July, hitting .258/.262/.306. It is common for prospects in their first full season to struggle with the grind of travel and games, but McGuire has struggled with the bat all season, hitting just .263/.310/.309 with eight doubles, one triple, and one home run. McGuire has All-Star potential, and has controlled the running game, throwing out 42 percent of all base stealers for the season.

  • Blue Jays to call up Rogers from Triple-A
    Esmil Rogers is expected to be called up from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

    Advice: Rogers was outrighted off the 40-man roster back in May, but the Blue Jays need a fresh arm in their bullpen. The 28-year-old owns a 6.97 ERA over 16 appearances at the major league level this season and figures to pitch in long relief.

  • Peralta (virus) expected to be placed on DL
    Joel Peralta (virus) is expected to be placed on the disabled list.

    Advice: Peralta believes that he acquired the chikungunya virus, an illness transferred by mosquitoes in the Caribbean, which is where Peralta spent his All-Star break. He would be placed on the disabled list retroactive to July 13, setting him up to return within a few days assuming he feels up to it. Jeff Beliveau is the most likely replacement on the active roster.

  • Wilson (ankle) set for sim. game Wednesday
    C.J. Wilson (ankle) is scheduled to throw an "up-and-down" bullpen session on Wednesday.

    Advice: Wilson felt good after throwing 50 pitches in a bullpen session Monday and will test himself Wednesday in what will essentially amount to a simulated game, as he'll take breaks as if he was pitching separate innings. The southpaw will almost certainly require a minor league rehab assignment, but should be able to return within a couple of weeks.

  • Blue Jays calling up prospect Aaron Sanchez
    Shi Davidi of reports that the Blue Jays plan to call up prospect right-hander Aaron Sanchez on Tuesday.

    Advice: Sanchez was just shifted to the bullpen last week in Triple-A, which is where he'll pitch in his first taste of the majors. The 22-year-old has posted a 3.95 ERA and 84/57 K/BB ratio over 100 1/3 innings this season between Double- and Triple-A. He still has a promising future as a starter, but the Jays are hoping he can make an impact down the stretch in a relief role.

  • Norris allows 2 runs in Monday's win over LAA
    In his return to the rotation, Bud Norris allowed two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Monday against the Angels.

    Advice: Demoted prior to the All-Star break to keep him on a regular pitching schedule, Norris walked two and allowed eight hits, but he also struck out eight. The right-hander struggled in his one-start sojourn in Double-A, so it was nice to see a quick return to form at the game's highest level. Norris (8-6, 3.78 ERA) stays out West next time around, taking on the Mariners this weekend in Seattle.

  • Ackley's glove and bat push Mariners to win
    Dustin Ackley had a monster game in Monday's 5-2 win over the Mets, going 3-for-4 at the dish and robbing a homer in the field.

    Advice: Ackley's heroics improved Seattle to 53-46, 2 1/2 games up for the second Wild Card slot in the American League. The outfielder had two singles and an RBI double, but his most impressive display came in stealing Travis d'Arnaud's sixth inning would-be-homer. Ackley started heating up right when we started hearing his name in trade rumors; he's batting .360 (18-for-50) in July.

  • Niese struggles in loss Mariners on Monday
    In his return from the disabled list, Jon Niese allowed four earned runs over six innings in the Mets' loss to the Mariners on Monday.

    Advice: Out since early July with shoulder inflammation, Niese punched out six and issued two free passes. The Mariners weren't fooled by his stuff, collecting 11 hits. Regardless, New York is happy to have Niese back, if for no other reason than to showcase him. The left-hander's contract is extremely team-friendly, paying out just $16 million over the next two seasons, with the Mets also in possession of a pair of club options totaling $21 million after that. Outside of a rusty return from layoff, Niese has been remarkably consistent; this was the first time he'd yielded more than three earned runs in a start. Now 5-5 with a 3.13 ERA, Niese heads to Milwaukee this weekend.

  • Ian Desmond goes 5-for-5, homers in win
    Ian Desmond went 5-for-5 with his 17th homer in the Nationals' 7-2 defeat of the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: It was his second career five-hit game, the other coming against the Mets in Sept. 2011. He raised his average from .243 to .253, which is the highest it's been since way back on April 12. He's now driven in runs in five straight games and collected a total of 16 RBI in his last 15 games.

  • Elias leaves with forearm cramp, K's eight
    Roenis Elias left with a forearm cramp on Monday, but not before striking out eight and allowing one run on five hits over 5 1/3 innings against the Mets.

    Advice: The Mariners were just being cautious with their young left-hander -- he was at 90 pitches and would have been pulled after the inning anyway -- and it would be surprising if his next start were pushed back. Elias needed a positive outing to prevent talk of a demotion, and he got it, tying for his second highest strikeout total of the season. All shouldn't be forgiven -- the 25-year-old left-hander was 0-3 while getting lit up for a 10.05 ERA over his previous three outings, and had coughed up four runs or more in five of seven to close out the first half -- but he just bought himself some leash. Assuming the injury isn't more serious than the team is letting on, Elias hosts the Orioles this weekend.
    Yesterday, 9:26 pm
  • Doug Fister picks up ninth win
    Doug Fister gave up two runs and nine hits in 5 2/3 innings Monday in a win over the Rockies.

    Advice: Fister wasn't at his best tonight, but he didn't need to be against a Rockies lineup missing Troy Tulowitzki, Justin Morneau and Michael Cuddyer. He still managed to take a shutout into the sixth inning before giving up five hits and a walk in the frame. Fortunately, Aaron Barrett was able to strand the bases loaded by striking out Brandon Barnes.
    Yesterday, 9:26 pm
  • Roenis Elias exits with apparent arm injury
    Roenis Elias left Monday's game against the Mets with an apparent arm injury.

    Advice: Elias was visited by the trainer and seen stretching out his fingers/hand, so he could be dealing with some tightness in his forearm. The Mariners should provide more on his status shortly. Elias allowed one run while striking out eight over 5 1/3 innings before exiting.
    Yesterday, 8:58 pm
  • C.J. Wilson (ankle) throws bullpen session
    C.J. Wilson (ankle) threw a bullpen session Monday.

    Advice: It was his first since landing on the disabled list. Wilson's right ankle doesn't hurt while he's throwing, but he's expected to go out on a rehab assignment so that he can test things out. It's looking like he probably won't be ready to return before the end of the month.

  • Bud Norris recalled to start Monday
    Orioles recalled RHP Bud Norris from Double-A Bowie.

    Advice: Norris was sent down prior to the All-Star break in order to keep pitching. He'll make his return to the Orioles' rotation on Monday against the Angels. Norris holds a 3.96 ERA and 1.19 WHIP over 15 starts this season.
    Yesterday, 4:08 pm
  • Joel Peralta may have chikungunya virus
    Joel Peralta believes he has the chikungunya virus.

    Advice: It's an illness transferred by mosquitoes in the Caribbean, where Peralta spent his All-Star break. The symptoms typically last over a week and the Rays might place him on the disabled list retroactive to July 13. The right-handed reliever should be fine eventually.

  • Mets activate Jon Niese for Monday start
    Mets activated RHP Jon Niese from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: He'll rejoin the Mets rotation on Monday when he takes on the Mariners in Seattle. Before hitting the disabled list with shoulder inflammation, he posted a terrific 2.96 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 74/28 K/BB ratio over his first 103 1/3 frames.
    Sunday, 4:53 pm
  • Joel Peralta unavailable with illness Sunday
    Joel Peralta was unavailable for the Sunday's game against the Twins due to an illness.

    Advice: The Rays needed all hands on deck to preserve a two-run victory over the Twins on Sunday, and it wound up being Kirby Yates who cleaned up Grant Balfour's mess by recording the final two outs. Peralta should be fine in a day or two.

  • Josh Reddick could be activated Tuesday
    Josh Reddick (knee) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Tuesday.

    Advice: A's manager Bob Melvin said he spoke to Reddick Sunday morning and the outfielder said he was feeling "great." Reddick has seven hits -- including two home runs -- over 17 at-bats during his rehab assignment with High-A Stockton.

  • C.J. Wilson not cleared to throw off mound
    Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Friday that C.J. Wilson's injured ankle is still sore, and while he's currently throwing, he hasn't yet been cleared for mound work.

    Advice: There is still no definitive timetable for when the veteran southpaw may be able to rejoin the Angels rotation. Fantasy owners should plan on going without Wilson until early August.

  • Reddick to continue rehab through weekend
    Josh Reddick (knee) will remain on his rehab assignment until at least Sunday.

    Advice: Reddick is making slow progress in his recovery from a right knee injury, and it's starting to look as though he may need more than the minimum stint on the disabled list that was originally forecast.
    Friday, 4:13 pm
  • Niese expected to rejoin rotation on Monday
    Jon Niese (shoulder) threw a successful bullpen session on Friday and remains on track to rejoin the Mets rotation on Monday in Seattle.

    Advice: Niese has been on the shelf with a strained left hamstring since June 22. He will return to a 2.96 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 74/28 K/BB ratio through his first 103 1/3 innings.
    Friday, 3:53 pm
  • Mariners receiving interest in Dustin Ackley
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that "a lot of teams" have asked the Mariners about Dustin Ackley.

    Advice: Ackley has hit only .242/.310/.351 across parts of four seasons in the majors, but many still feel that the former top prospect has untapped potential. He wouldn't be the headliner in any deal, but Ackley could turn out to be a nice buy low opportunity as a secondary piece.
    Friday, 12:01 pm
  • Blue Jays move Aaron Sanchez to bullpen
    Blue Jays pitching prospect Aaron Sanchez has been moved to the bullpen at Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: The 22-year-old right-hander will likely be called up to Toronto once he gets comfortable in his new, temporary role. Sanchez is a highly-thought-of prospect and projects as a starting pitcher long term.
