Twins acquired LHP Gabriel Moya from the Diamondbacks for C John Ryan Murphy.

Moya, 22, has posted an impressive 0.82 ERA, 0.78 WHIP, and 68/12 K/BB ratio across 43 2/3 innings this season at the Double-A level. He's a nice relief prospect for Minnesota.

Diamondbacks transferred OF Yasmany Tomas from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

It's a paperwork move to clear a 40-man roster spot for catcher John Ryan Murphy, who was acquired from the Twins on Thursday. Tomas is eligible to return from the 60-day disabled list August 3, but it doesn't appear he'll be ready on that date. He had a setback earlier this month with his strained right groin and has not resumed playing in minor league rehab games.

Diamondbacks acquired C John Ryan Murphy from the Twins for LHP Gabriel Moya.

Murphy has spent the entire 2017 season at Triple-A, slashing just .222/.298/.330 with four home runs and 27 RBI over 59 games. The 26-year-old catcher will be organizational depth for Arizona.

MLB.com's Mark Feinsand reports that the Twins are "fielding calls" on Ervin Santana and Jaime Garcia.

Minnesota could also move second baseman Brian Dozier and closer Brandon Kintzler ahead of Monday's trade deadline. Santana, a 2017 American League All-Star, boasts a 3.37 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 104/47 K/BB ratio in 136 1/3 innings this season and he leads all MLB pitchers with three shutouts. The 34-year-old right-hander is due $13.5 million in 2018 and he carries a $14 million vesting option for 2019. Garcia was just acquired from the Braves, but the Twins have suddenly lost four straight games.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick says the Astros "might be the most focused team" in pursuit of Tigers reliever Justin Wilson.

Wilson has been connected to just about every contending club, but the talent-rich Astros could probably beat any trade offer if they truly wanted to. Wilson, 29, owns a 2.75 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, and 55/16 K/BB ratio over 39 1/3 innings this season for Detroit, along with 12 saves. The left-hander is under contractual control through 2018.

Carter Capps (elbow) allowed three runs -- two earned -- in the ninth inning Wednesday at Triple-A El Paso.

That snaps a streak of 15 consecutive innings without allowing an earned run for Capps, who still holds a shiny 1.59 ERA and 15/4 K/BB ratio in 17 frames since he began pitching regularly for Triple-A El Paso back in early June. He should be called up sometime next month and might even factor into the mix for saves down the stretch in San Diego. Capps underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery back in March 2016.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle believes A's manager Bob Melvin is considering a change at closer.

Santiago Casilla took a blown save and a loss Wednesday against the Blue Jays after surrendering three runs on a pair of homers in the bottom of the ninth inning and he now holds a 4.66 ERA in 39 total appearances this year. Blake Treinen, recently acquired from the Nationals, could be next in line at closer in Oakland. Ryan Dull (knee) just returned from the disabled list but owns an ugly 6.32 ERA in 2017.

Pirates outfield prospect Jordan Luplow is expected to be promoted to the majors on Friday.

The news was broken by the official Twitter account of the Fresno State Bulldogs, Luplow's college team. A third-round pick in 2014, Luplow has batted .296/.377/.543 with 21 home runs and 50 RBI in 94 games this season between Double-A Altoona and Triple-A Indianapolis. He should see regular playing time while Gregory Polanco recovers from a hamstring strain and may be worth a grab in deeper fantasy formats.
