Yankees designated first baseman-outfielder Garrett Jones for assignment.

The move makes room for Dustin Ackley on the roster. The Yankees thought they'd have more need for Jones this year, but who would have guessed Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez would be this healthy and productive? Jones hit just .215/.257/.361 with five homers in 144 at-bats in his lesser role. He might land another bench gig now, but his major league career doesn't figure to last a whole lot longer.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Cubs "would love to pull off a blockbuster" and land Tyson Ross and Craig Kimbrel from the Padres.

The Cubs, Padres and Red Sox are reportedly discussing a possible three-team deal and it's possible Chicago would be getting Ross and Kimbrel in a blockbuster swap. It remains unclear at this point what would be going to San Diego and Boston, but FOX Sports' Jon Morosi says the potential three-team deal "remains very much alive."
Jul 31 - 2:17 PM

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Angels have talked with the Tigers about Yoenis Cespedes.

The Angels have already traded for three different outfielder/designated hitter types, but Cespedes would be a much bigger bat than all of them. It's unclear how serious the discussions are at this point. The Mets have also been linked to Cespedes.

MLB.com's Todd Zolecki reports that the Blue Jays have acquired Ben Revere from the Phillies.

It's unclear at this point what the Blue Jays are giving up in return. Revere will take over in left field for Toronto and possibly slide into the leadoff spot. He could score a ton of runs in front of that dynamic offense.
Jul 31 - 2:06 PM

Rangers released RHP Ross Ohlendorf.

Ohlendorf has battled a groin issue for much of the season and was removed from the 40-man roster earlier this week. He should receive a look elsewhere as long as he's healthy.
Jul 31 - 2:02 PM

Rangers claimed C Bobby Wilson off waivers from the Rays.

A defense-first backstop, Wilson has hit just .145/.203/.145 in the majors this season. He's merely a depth guy.
Jul 31 - 2:01 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Twins have acquired Kevin Jepsen from the Rays.

The Twins have been seeking bullpen help and appear to have landed their man. Jepsen has had a nice year in Tampa, putting up a 2.81 ERA while striking out 34 across 41 2/3 innings. Minnesota has had trouble bridging the gap from their starters to closer Glen Perkins and Jepsen should help out in that regard.
Jul 31 - 1:54 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Astros "continue to talk" to the Reds about Aroldis Chapman.

The Astros have also been connected to Craig Kimbrel, but Heyman says he "may be backup plan," as Houston ownership "is said to want Chapman." FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal has said it's "50/50" as to whether Chapman winds up being dealt. The Diamondbacks had been in the mix but the Reds don't appear too enticed by the package they offered.
