Josh Reddick RF OAK 25 Mins
Athletics activated OF Josh Reddick from the 15-day disabled list.
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.
Hanley Ramirez SS LAD 33 Mins
Hanley Ramirez (wrist) is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup Tuesday night versus the Pirates.
Ramirez was the struck by pitches on the left shoulder and wrist Sunday night in St. Louis. X-rays have been taken and came back negative, but the shortstop is still pretty sore. Justin Turner will again fill in.
Yasiel Puig CF/RF LAD 35 Mins
Yasiel Puig (hand) is again out of the Dodgers' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Pirates.
Puig has now missed three consecutive games since taking a Joe Kelly pitch off his left hand on Saturday afternoon. A second X-ray was taken Monday and the results were negative, but Puig still has a bad bruise. Matt Kemp is in right field Tuesday in Pittsburgh.
Emilio Bonifacio 2B/LF.. CHC 36 Mins
Cubs activated INF/OF Emilio Bonifacio from the 15-day disabled list.
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.
Darwin Barney 2B CHC 40 Mins
Cubs designated 2B Darwin Barney for assignment.
The move clears a spot for Emilio Bonifacio's return from the disabled list. It was increasingly obvious that Barney's days in Chicago were numbered, especially with the recent emergence of Arismendy Alcantara. The 28-year-old was originally drafted by the Cubs in 2007 and has compiled a .244/.290/.335 batting line over 542 games with the club.
Esmil Rogers P TOR 41 Mins
Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Esmil Rogers from Triple-A Buffalo.
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.
Ryan Goins 2B/SS TOR 43 Mins
Blue Jays recalled INF Ryan Goins from Triple-A Buffalo.
Goins batted just .150/.203/.217 over 24 games with the Blue Jays earlier this season. He's not fantasy relevant.
Aaron Sanchez SP TOR 45 Mins
Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Aaron Sanchez from Triple-A Buffalo.
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.
Darin Mastroianni LF/RF TOR 47 Mins
Blue Jays optioned OF Darin Mastroianni to Triple-A Buffalo.
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.
Brad Mills SP TOR 49 Mins
Blue Jays designated LHP Brad Mills for assignment.
As expected, the move clears a spot for Aaron Sanchez on the active roster. Mills was just claimed off waivers from the A's last week and could soon be on the move again.
