C.J. Cron (hand) could begin swinging on Tuesday.

The Angels are hoping to have him back in about two weeks, which means he's way ahead of schedule. "Yeah, I know, it's amazing," said manager Mike Scioscia. Cron was originally expected to miss 6-8 weeks after breaking his hand right before the All-Star break but it looks like he'll only miss about four. Jefrey Marte has been filling in for him at first base.

The Padres have agreed to trade OF Matt Kemp to the Braves in exchange for OF/3B Hector Olivera.

The deal will become official as soon as both players complete their physicals. The Padres are sending Atlanta $10-12 million to cover part of Kemp's salary. The Braves have been wanting to move on from Olivera since his arrest in April and the Padres are trying to turn all their big league assets into prospects, so the deal works for both sides. Kemp will be playing in a more hitter-friendly park in Atlanta but RBI opportunities could be scarce in a depleted Braves lineup. Ultimately this shouldn't have a drastic impact on his fantasy value.

Ryan Braun (side) was a late scratch Saturday against the Pirates.

Braun was hoping to return after missing two games with right side tightness but apparently the injury is still lingering. His absence has nothing to do with recent trade rumors. Ramon Flores will take over in left field and bat seventh against Pirates right-hander Jameson Taillon. Consider Braun day-to-day.

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) remained out of the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

Puig made a pinch-hitting appearance on Friday night but the Dodgers are going to play it safe by keeping him out one more day. Andrew Toles will take his spot in right field and bat seventh against D'Backs right-hander Braden Shipley. Manager Dave Roberts said he expects Puig to return for Sunday's series finale.
Jul 30 - 7:34 PM

Cubs optioned RHP Justin Grimm to Triple-A Iowa.

The move opens a roster spot for Sunday's starter, Brian Matusz. The Cubs' bullpen has gotten crowded over the last week with Aroldis Chapman and Mike Montgomery both arriving in separate trades. Grimm holds a 4.72 ERA over 45 appearances this year.
Jul 30 - 7:18 PM

Carlos Rodon (wrist) will return Sunday against the Twins.

Manager Robin Ventura had been leaning that way all week but he didn't make the official call until Saturday. Rodon has been out with a sprained wrist since July 5. He scattered five hits and two runs over 3 2/3 innings Monday in a rehab start for Triple-A Charlotte.
Jul 30 - 7:13 PM

Rich Hill (finger) felt good after throwing a 60-pitch bullpen session on Saturday.

Hill had his blister covered for the first 45 pitches but took it off for the last 15. Assuming he isn't traded, Hill should return to the A's rotation either Thursday against the Angels or Friday versus the Cubs. He left his last start on July 17 after throwing just five pitches.
Jul 30 - 7:08 PM

Kole Calhoun is not in the Angels' lineup Saturday against the Red Sox.

Calhoun will ride the bench with left-hander Drew Pomeranz throwing for Boston. Shane Robinson will handle right field in his absence. Calhoun hasn't done anything spectacular this year, but he's hit a respectable .279 with 10 HR, 54 RBI and 63 runs scored across 384 at-bats.
