Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan reports that the Diamondbacks are talking to the Reds about a trade for Aroldis Chapman.
It would be a weird move for the Diamondbacks, who aren't in contention this season. A dominant closer is a luxury in such a situation, but Arizona apparently sees him as a difference-maker as they look toward 2016. Chapman, who will be eligible for free agency after next season, has also reportedly drawn interest from the Nationals.
Indians transferred LHP Nick Hagadone from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.
The move clears a spot for Michael Roth on the 40-man roster. Hagadone underwent surgery last week to repair a fracture in his left elbow and is expected to miss 6-9 months.
Indians optioned 1B Jesus Aguilar to Triple-A Columbus.
Aguilar was called up on Friday and went 2-for-9 with an RBI over three games with the big club. Michael Roth will take his place on the active roster.
Indians purchased the contract of LHP Michael Roth from Triple-A Columbus.
Roth, who previously pitched in the majors with the Angels, had a 4.19 ERA and 70/37 K/BB ratio in 114 2/3 innings this season in Triple-A. The 25-year-old southpaw will provide some bullpen depth for Cleveland.
Red Sox transferred RHP Clay Buchholz from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.
The move clears a spot for Jean Machi on the 40-man roster and also rules Buchholz out until the early part of September. Of course, Buchholz estimated last week that he's likely about five or six weeks away from throwing off a mound as he recovers from a right flexor strain, so he's no sure thing to pitch again this season.
Red Sox claimed RHP Jean Machi off waivers from the Giants.
Machi was recently designated for assignment by the Giants after struggling to the tune of a 5.14 ERA over 33 appearances this season. The 33-year-old was a useful bullpen piece from 2013-2014, so the Red Sox will try to get him turned around.
Marlins placed INF Donovan Solano on the paternity leave list.
Solano can remain on paternity leave for 24 to 72 hours. Dee Gordon will take his place on the active roster.
Marlins activated 2B Dee Gordon from the 15-day disabled list.
Gordon only needed one minor league rehab game to prove that he was ready to go. The speedy second baseman has been out since July 12 with a dislocated left thumb. He returns to a .338/.359/.413 batting line to go along with 33 steals.
