  • Robert Stock (hamstring) moved to 60-day IL
    Mets transferred RHP Robert Stock to the 60-day injured list.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Rich Hill. Stock not won't be eligible for activation until late September. 4 minutes ago
  • Rays get Tommy Hunter from Mets
    Rays acquired RHP Tommy Hunter and C Matt Dyer from the Mets for LHP Rich Hill.

    Advice: Hunter's inclusion in the deal was more about the club's balancing out the money side. He is not expected to return this season due to a back injury. 9 minutes ago
  • Mets officially announce trade for Rich Hill
    Mets acquired LHP Rich Hill from the Rays for RHP Tommy Hunter and C Matt Dyer.

    Advice: Hill's results and spin rate have gone down since the league began cracking down on grip enhancers. However, he's pitched well overall this season with a 3.87 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 91/36 K/BB ratio over 95 1/3 innings. He'll give the banged-up Mets rotation a boost. 10 minutes ago
  • John Hicks designated for assignment
    Rangers designated C John Hicks for assignment.

    Advice: Hicks cranked four homers in 10 games, but he wasn't going to play much with Jose Trevino back and the Rangers wanted to clear a spot on the 40-man roster. 12 minutes ago
  • Rangers demote struggling Nick Solak to Triple-A
    Rangers optioned INF Nick Solak to Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Solak had a great April but was batting just .196/.260/.277 since May 1. He should get another shot at regular playing time with the Rangers later this season, but for now he'll try to get his swing back in a less pressurized situation. Andy Ibanez could see the lion's share of starts at second base for now. 15 minutes ago

  • Jose Trevino activated from injured list
    Rangers activated C Jose Trevino from the 10-day injured list.

    Advice: Trevino has been out all month with a bruised forearm. He'll share time at catcher with Jonah Heim. 21 minutes ago
  • Jose De Leon released by Reds
    Reds released RHP Jose De Leon.

    Advice: De Leon cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and is now free to look for a gig elsewhere. The 28-year-old posted an 8.35 ERA over 18 1/3 innings for the Reds but did strike out 33 batters. He'll get another shot somewhere. 22 minutes ago
  • Alejo Lopez recalled from Triple-A
    Reds recalled INF Alejo Lopez from Triple-A Louisville.

    Advice: Lopez went 5-for-17 during a brief stint with the Reds earlier this season. He'll provide infield depth. 25 minutes ago
  • Vladimir Gutierrez recalled from Triple-A
    Reds recalled RHP Vladimir Gutierrez from Triple-A Louisville.

    Advice: Gutierrez was just sent down Tuesday but can return because he's replacing an injured player. It's not clear at this point whether he'll go back into the rotation or be used in relief. 26 minutes ago
  • Amir Garrett goes on paternity leave
    Reds placed LHP Amir Garrett on the paternity leave list.

    Advice: He'll probably miss the entire three-game series against the Cardinals. Garrett has had an up-and-down season for the Redlegs. 27 minutes ago
  • Nick Castellanos (wrist) placed on injured list
    Reds placed OF Nick Castellanos on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to July 20, with a fractured right wrist.

    Advice: The Reds were hoping a couple days of rest would be enough to allow Castellanos to avoid an IL stint, but it wasn't meant to be. He's dealing with a microfracture in his wrist, an injury he suffered a week ago on a hit by pitch. Aristides Aquino and Shogo Akiyama will see increased playing time while Castellanos is out. 29 minutes ago
  • Michael Taylor (wrist) not in Friday's lineup
    Michael Taylor (wrist) is not in the Royals' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Taylor exited Wednesday's game with left wrist soreness and the off day Thursday wasn't enough to get him over the hump. Jarrod Dyson is in center field Friday. 52 minutes ago
  • Mariners have talked Adam Frazier deal with Bucs
    Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Mariners are "actively pursuing controllable infielders, including Adam Frazier."

    Advice: The Mariners are, somewhat surprisingly, in the playoff hunt and would also retain control of Frazier in 2022, as well. The 29-year-old will be a hot commodity on the trade market as he's in the midst of a career year with a .327/.390/.453 batting line. The White Sox are another club know to be interested in Frazier. Today, 11:31 am
  • Mauricio Llovera optioned to Triple-A
    Phillies optioned RHP Mauricio Llovera to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Llovera has allowed one run over three innings covering two appearances with the big club this season. It's the first year he's been used exclusively as a reliever. Today, 11:24 am
  • Alec Bohm activated from COVID-19 injured list
    Phillies activated 3B Alec Bohm from the COVID-19 injured list.

    Advice: Bohm tested positive for the virus earlier this month but is now apparently recovered. Mauricio Llovera was sent down in a corresponding move. Today, 11:23 am
  • Cubs claim Johneshwy Fargas off waivers
    Cubs claimed OF Johneshwy Fargas off waivers from the Mets.

    Advice: He's been assigned to Triple-A Iowa. Fargas injured his left shoulder back in late May and it's unclear when he'll be ready to play again. Today, 11:21 am
  • Kris Bryant (hamstring) back in lineup Friday
    Kris Bryant (hamstring) is back in the Cubs' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Bryant pinch-hit during Thursday's game and is now back in the lineup a day after after missing two starts with right hamstring fatigue. He's in left field and batting second against Zac Gallen and the Diamondbacks. Today, 10:59 am

  • Report: NYY in recent talks with MIA about Marte
    Brendan Kuty of reports that the Yankees had discussions as recently as late Thursday night with the Marlins regarding a trade for Starling Marte.

    Advice: Kuty says that the Yanks have also talked to the Twins about Max Kepler and the Rockies about Trevor Story. Marte looks like a shoo-in to be traded sometime over the next week after contract extension talks with the Marlins broke down. He would fill a big need for the Yankees in center field, although there will be plenty of interest in him from other suitors, as well. Kepler is a fit, as well, although he's under team control cheaply for several years so the asking price for him has been "exorbitant," per Kuty. Story would allow the Yanks to move Gleyber Torres to second base. Today, 10:54 am
  • Brad Wieck to undergo ablation procedure
    Cubs transferred LHP Brad Wieck to the 60-day injured list.

    Advice: Wieck will undergo a cardiac ablation procedure, which is the same operation he had back in spring training of 2020. There is no timetable for his return, but it seems unlikely that the lefty will make it back this season. Today, 10:03 am
  • Cubs designate Eric Sogard for assignment
    Cubs designated INF Eric Sogard for assignment.

    Advice: Sogard has batted just .249/.283/.314 this season after inking a minor league deal with the Cubs during spring training. The 35-year-old might be able to land a bench job somewhere else. Today, 9:56 am
