White Sox released C George Kottaras.

The well-traveled veteran catcher was batting .247/.403/.505 with seven home runs and 19 RBI in 31 games for the Triple-A affiliate of the White Sox. Kottaras should be able to latch on with another club rather quickly.
Aug 3 - 3:15 PM

Athletics activated SHP Pat Venditte from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Nashville.

Venditte hit the disabled list on June 12 with a right shoulder strain and is still making rehab appearances at the Triple-A level. The 30-year-old switch-pitcher should get a callup within the next couple of weeks.
Aug 3 - 3:09 PM

Yankees 2B prospect Abiatal Avelino went 5-for-8 with a home run and two stolen bases in Sunday's doubleheader for High-A Tampa.

He scored four times as Tampa split the doubleheader with Bradenton. Avelino has hit .412 during his nine-game hitting streak with three RBI and 17 total bases. The 20-year-old doesn't hit for much power (only four homers in 374 at-bats) but has game-changing speed with 45 steals on 59 attempts this season.

Athletics claimed INF/OF Danny VAlencia off waivers from the Blue Jays.

Valencia was designated for assignment by Toronto in a somewhat surprising move after the July 31 trade deadline. He's having a very good season and drew interest from a range of teams (including the White Sox, Rangers, and Orioles) on the waiver wire. The 30-year-old probably isn't going to carry a ton of fantasy value in Oakland.
Aug 3 - 3:06 PM

Michael Morse is batting seventh and starting at first base Monday in his Pirates debut.

Morse was acquired from the Dodgers in a July 31 deadline trade. He had been shipped from Miami to Los Angeles one day prior as part of a big 13-player, three-team swap. The 33-year-old first baseman has struggled mightily this season and probably won't suddenly take on significant fantasy value with Pittsburgh.
Aug 3 - 3:00 PM

Marlins RHP prosepct Jordan Holloway allowed just one hit in six scoreless innings Sunday in a victory for Low-A Batavia.

He faced the minimum 18 batters. The win was Holloway's second in a row and his third in eight starts for Batavia. The 19-year-old recorded seven ground-outs in a row between the second and fourth innings. Holloway has limited opponents to a .203 average this season but has struggled with walks with 30 free passes in only 47 innings.

Dodgers sent RHP Brandon Beachy outright to Triple-A Durham.

Beachy accepted the assignment rather than test the free agent waters. The 28-year-old right-hander is still working back from a second Tommy John surgery. He allowed seven runs in eight innings (two starts) with LA.
Aug 3 - 2:48 PM

Indians SS prospect Yu-Cheng Chang plated a career-high five runs Sunday in a win for Class-A Lake County.

He homered for the second game in a row. Over his last three contests, Chang is 4-for-13 with nine RBI. The 19-year-old has raised his average 16 points during his eight-game hitting streak. 24 of Chang's 75 hits this season have gone for extra bases.
