Braves recalled RHP Juan Jaime from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Jaime will replace the injured Shae Simmons (shoulder) on the active roster. The young fireballer has allowed one run in four innings with the big club this season to go along with a 7/1 K/BB ratio.
Jul 29 - 3:10 PM

Braves placed RHP Shae Simmons on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 27, with a right shoulder strain.

Simmons got off to a great start in the majors, but he has struggled a bit recently, so the shoulder issue would explain it. No word on how long he'll be sidelined. The Braves have called up hard-throwing Juan Jaime to take his spot in the bullpen.
Jul 29 - 3:08 PM

Reds recalled RHP Curtis Partch from Triple-A Louisville.

He'll take the roster spot of Jay Bruce, who has been placed on the bereavement list. Partch threw 1 2/3 innings Monday night, so he's not exactly a fresh arm.

Jay Bruce - OF - Reds

Reds placed OF Jay Bruce on the bereavement list.

Bruce can spend three to seven days on the bereavement list. The Reds have called up Curtis Partch to take his spot on the active roster.

Marlon Byrd is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Mets.

No word on the reason for his absence, but it's noteworthy with Thursday's trade deadline fast approaching. Grady Sizemore will make the start in right field Tuesday.
Jul 29 - 2:53 PM

Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com hears from a source that Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo worked out for the Phillies on Tuesday.

28 out of 30 MLB teams were reportedly on hand for Castillo's showcase on Saturday and he's now scheduling private workouts for teams. According to Sanchez, he'll work out for the Red Sox on Friday and the Mariners on Sunday. Meanwhile, Ben Badler of Baseball America reports that the Yankees have also scheduled a workout. Known for his plus-speed, Castillo could receive a contract in the range of Yasiel Puig's $42 million deal with the Dodgers.
Jul 29 - 2:39 PM

Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network on Sirius XM hears that the Blue Jays, Mariners, Brewers, Cardinals, Dodgers, Orioles, and Marlins are the teams that are "in" on Red Sox left-hander Jon Lester.

With this many teams involved, it's increasingly likely that the Red Sox will find a deal to their liking. Lester is due to become a free agent after the season, so teams will be paying for a rental, but he's capable of putting a contender over the top. The 30-year-old has a 2.52 ERA and 149/32 K/BB ratio over 143 innings this season.
Jul 29 - 2:33 PM

Mariners prospect third baseman D.J. Peterson (wrist) could return to action as soon as Tuesday.

Peterson left Saturday's game with a bruised left wrist, but it's not a major concern. The 22-year-old has batted .318/.375/.586 with 23 home runs and 89 RBI over 91 games this season between High-A and Double-A.
