Athletics released RHP Jim Johnson.

Oakland GM Billy Beane made a rare mistake this winter when he traded for Johnson and his $10 million salary for 2014. The right-hander had poor peripherals in Baltimore despite his dominant save totals and wound up posting a 6.92 ERA in 40 1/3 innings with the A's. Johnson should latch on with a new team pretty quickly.

Mets recalled SS Wilmer Flores from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Flores has batted just .225/.253/.300 in 83 plate appearances this season at the major league level, but the 22-year-old infielder has been a force in the Pacific Coast League. He was rated a Top 75 prospect this winter by Baseball Prospectus and may carry mixed-league fantasy value if he finds consistent playing time in New York.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Rockies asked for Kevin Gausman in exchange for Jorge De La Rosa.

It was worth a shot, but the O's weren't going to bite on that ridiculous request. Gausman has tremendous upside and at least five more years of cost control. De La Rosa, meanwhile, is set to become a free agent this winter. Baltimore is seeking pitching upgrades with the July 31 trade deadline approaching, but it's been a seller-friendly market so far and the club is reluctant to part with any top prospects.

Angel Pagan (back) took more swings Wednesday.

Pagan is slowly but surely recovering from a back strain that put him on the disabled list in the middle of June. He is aiming to return sometime in early August. Gregor Blanco has been playing center field for the Giants.

Nationals signed LHP Brandon Sisk to a minor league contract.

Sisk announced the deal on his personal Twitter account. The 29-year-old was released from the Angels' Triple-A affiliate this season after allowing 16 earned runs in 11 innings. He's never appeared in the majors.

According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, the Padres "have sent word to some teams that they would need to be overwhelmed to trade" starting pitcher Ian Kennedy.

This could be a negotiating ploy on the part of the Padres, or it might just be serious. Kennedy is under contractual control (via arbitration) through the 2015 season, so the San Diego front office can slow-play this and wait for the best offer -- even if it doesn't come until this winter or next summer. The 29-year-old right-hander owns an impressive 3.66 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 143/42 K/BB ratio in 135 1/3 innings (22 starts) this season.

Rangers transferred 1B Mitch Moreland from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

It's a procedural move to clear a 40-man roster spot for reliever Nate Adcock, who was called up Thursday in the wake of the Joakim Soria trade. Moreland underwent season-ending ankle surgery near the end of June.

Neftali Feliz is expected to take over as the Rangers' closer in the wake of the Joakim Soria trade.

Soria was dealt to the Tigers on Wednesday night for right-handed pitching prospects Jake Thompson and Corey Knebel. Feliz is still working to regain his dominant raw stuff, but he owns a cool 2.61 ERA and 0.77 WHIP in 10 1/3 innings of relief since rejoining the Rangers' active roster on July 4. The 26-year-old right-hander needs to be owned in all standard fantasy leagues even though his save opportunities may be few and far between for a Rangers team that has clearly mailed it in.
