Mariners signed C Erik Kratz to a minor league contract.

The veteran backstop elected free agency after being designated for assignment by the Red Sox earlier in the week. While he'll begin at Triple-A Tacoma, he should work his way up to the big league club in relatively short order.
Jul 2 - 11:28 PM

James Wagner of the Toledo Blade reports that the Tigers plan to purchase the contract of Jeff Ferrell from Triple-A Toledo on Friday.

It's unclear at the moment what the corresponding move for the right-hander will be. The 24-year-old has made just one appearance at Triple-A Toledo, but was dominant in 18 games at Double-A Erie, posting a 1.61 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 36/4 K/BB ratio in 28 innings.
Jul 2 - 11:17 PM

Dodgers designated RHP Brandon League for assignment.

As he's still owed $7.5 million this season, it's extremely unlikely that any other squad will pick up the veteran hurler off of waivers. He should continue to provide organizational bullpen depth for the Dodgers.
Jul 2 - 11:12 PM

Blue Jays designated RHP Todd Redmond for assignment.

With Jays starter Matt Boyd failing to record an out on Thursday, the bullpen was incredibly taxed, forcing them to send Redmond out to get a fresh arm in the bullpen for the weekend. He should be back with the Blue Jays before long.
Jul 2 - 11:08 PM

Blue Jays optioned LHP Matt Boyd to Triple-A Buffalo.

Boyd had an opportunity to secure a spot in the Blue Jays starting rotation, but his disastrous outing against the Red Sox on Thursday sealed his fate. He'll look to get back on track at Triple-A with the hope of earning another opportunity later in the season.
Jul 2 - 11:06 PM

David Ortiz clobbered a three-run home run in the first inning on Thursday, powering the Red Sox to a 12-6 victory over the visiting Blue Jays.

What's impressive to note is that the first inning blast came off Blue Jays' southpaw Matt Boyd. It was Big Papi's one hit in five at-bats on the night, and he also drew a walk. While he's hitting just .228/.313/.426 on the season, he now has eight homers and 18 RBI in his last 21 games.
Jul 2 - 11:05 PM

Wade Miley picked up his eighth victory of the season on Thursday despite allowing four runs on seven hits over his five innings of work.

The left-hander also issued an astounding seven walks in the contest while striking out only two. The Red Sox offense provided more than enough support for him though, and all he needed to do was hang around for five frames to collect the win. He'll bring a 4.53 ERA and 62/35 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's matchup against the Marlins.
Jul 2 - 10:58 PM

Kevin Pillar had a nice night at the plate in Thursday's loss to the Red Sox, going 4-for-5 with a double and a run scored.

Pillar has made a name for himself in recent years with his tremendous defensive prowess in center field, but he has developed into an integral part of the Blue Jays offense this year. With the four-hit attack, he's now hitting .285/.348/.409 on the season.
