Marlins placed 1B Justin Bour on the 10-day disabled list with a right oblique strain.

Bour suffered the injury in Monday night's series opener against the Rangers and will probably miss the next 3-4 weeks. The 29-year-old first baseman leaves behind a stellar .289/.366/.548 batting line with 21 home runs and 63 RBI in 87 games. Tomas Telis has been recalled from the minors in a corresponding roster move.

Marlins purchased the contract of INF/OF Mike Aviles from Triple-A New Orleans.

Aviles will give the Marlins infield depth while shortstop JT Riddle recovers from a biceps injury. The veteran utilityman went hitless in seven plate appearances earlier this season with Miami.
Jul 25 - 4:43 PM

Marlins placed SS J.T. Riddle on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to July 22, with biceps tendinitis.

Riddle has been sidelined for nearly a week with this upper-arm discomfort and the Marlins finally decided to quit playing a man short. The hope is Riddle will be ready for activation when first eligible in early August. Mike Aviles has been promoted from Triple-A New Orleans to give Miami infield depth.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports is hearing that Mets shortstop prospect Amed Rosario "could be up in a week or so."

The promotion will probably come after the Mets unload some pieces around the July 31 trade deadline. Rosario, 21, is batting .329/.367/.473 with seven home runs, 55 RBI, 17 stolen bases, and 59 runs scored in 88 games this season at Triple-A Las Vegas. He was recently ranked the No. 4 overall prospect in the sport by Baseball America.

Rockies recalled RHP Carlos Estevez from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Estevez has a hideous 8.10 ERA in 18 relief appearances this season in the majors, but the Rockies were desperate for a fresh bullpen arm. He'll work in low-leverage spots.
Jul 25 - 4:27 PM

Rockies optioned RHP Jairo Diaz to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Diaz has a 9.00 ERA and 3.40 WHIP in five innings of relief this season at the major league level. Carlos Estevez will take his spot on Colorado's active roster.
Jul 25 - 4:26 PM

Athletics transferred RHP Bobby Wahl from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

It's just a procedural move. Wahl recently began a minor league rehab assignment and will be eligible to return to the A's active roster later this week.
Jul 25 - 4:25 PM

Jedd Gyorko is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night.

Greg Garcia will start at third base and bat eighth versus Rockies right-hander Jon Gray. This appears to be a routine breather for Gyorko, who's fallen into a bit of a slump since the All-Star break.
