Carlos Martinez allowed six runs -- five earned -- over five innings in a loss to the Cubs on Thursday.

That's not the way he wanted to begin his second half, giving up seven hits, including a homer, while walking one and striking out just two before exiting. The Cardinals surely would like to see better from Martinez as well, as his name has suddenly popped up in trade rumors with the deadline approaching. He owns a 3.39 ERA through 17 starts but has now dropped two in a row to fall to 6-6 on the year. The 26-year-old will try to stop the skid Tuesday against the Reds.

Cubs acquired RHP Jesse Chavez from the Rangers in exchange for LHP Tyler Thomas.

Thomas, a seventh-round pick in last year's draft, had been pitching at Low-A South Bend. Chavez brings a decade of major league experience to the Cubs and should be a helpful bullpen arm down the stretch. The 34-year-old has pitched exclusively out of the pen this year, though he also has 70 big league starts on his resume.

Indians manager Terry Francona said Edwin Encarnacion (hand) is "all good."

Encarnacion exited Sunday's game after taking a pitch off his left hand/forearm but it sounds like he'll be ready to go for Friday's second-half opener at Texas. The veteran didn't hit for a high average during the first half (.225) but his power numbers (22 homers and 65 RBI) are about where they usually are this time of year.

Indians optioned LHP Tyler Olson to Triple-A Columbus.

The Indians made a flurry of roster moves on Thursday, promoting Melky Cabrera and Yandy Diaz from Triple-A while sending down Greg Allen, Olson and Adam Plutko. A lefty specialist, Olson owns a high strikeout rate (12.0 K/9) but his ERA (7.50) has obviously been a disappointment. Despite his struggles, the 28-year-old should be back up at some point.

Indians recalled OF Melky Cabrera from Triple-A Columbus.

Cabrera has come full circle, returning to the big leagues with Cleveland a month after being designated for assignment. He's had a great month in the minors, batting .361 over 36 July at-bats. The veteran will serve as outfield depth.
Jul 19 - 9:32 PM

Indians recalled INF Yandy Diaz from Triple-A Columbus.

The move isn't official yet, but will be on Friday. This is Diaz's first call-up of the year. The 26-year-old has held his own in the minors, hitting a respectable .284 across 81 games for Columbus this season. He'll fill a utility role for the Tribe.
Jul 19 - 9:30 PM

Jason Vargas (calf) will return Tuesday against the Padres.

Vargas is ready to rejoin the Mets' rotation after being shelved for a month with a strained calf. The left-hander fared well on his rehab assignment, compiling a 1.50 ERA over two starts for Low-A Brooklyn. Unfortunately, he's been a disaster for the Mets this year, struggling to a brutal 8.60 ERA across nine major league starts. He should be avoided for fantasy purposes.
Jul 19 - 9:26 PM

Yankees optioned C Kyle Higashioka to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Higashioka will no longer be needed with Gary Sanchez (groin) back from the disabled list. The 28-year-old didn't hit much during his stay in New York, batting just .167 with 10 strikeouts in 30 at-bats. It would probably take another injury to Sanchez or Austin Romine for Higashioka to get called up again.
