Marlins purchased the contract of RHP Brian Ellington from Triple-A New Orleans.

Ellington, 24, was sporting a 2.44 ERA, 0.925 WHIP, and 48/13 K/BB ratio in 44 1/3 innings this season between Double-A and Triple-A. He should do well in mid-relief.

Marlins placed RHP Carter Capps on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain.

It's not clear how long he might be out. Capps has used his funky delivery to become one of the most dominant relievers in baseball this year, boasting a 1.16 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, and 58/7 K/BB ratio in 31 innings.

Dodgers 2B prospect Jose Peraza provided three hits in Sunday's doubleheader for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

One of the hits included his first home run as a member of the Dodgers organization. He also stole his 27th base and drove in a pair of runs. Peraza has gone 9-for-23 (.391) during his six-game hitting streak. The 21-year-old joined the Dodgers last week as part of a three-team swap with Atlanta and Miami.

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.
