Oscar Taveras is starting in right field for the Cardinals on Thursday against the Padres.

St. Louis dealt Allen Craig to Boston on Thursday afternoon (along with right-hander) Joe Kelly for John Lackey, so the right field job now belongs to Taveras. With a clearer path to playing time, the talented 21-year-old is worth owning in all mixed fantasy leagues.

Yankees claimed RHP Esmil Rogers off waivers from the Blue Jays.

Rogers was designated for assignment by Toronto on July 27. The 28-year-old right-hander owns an ugly 5.59 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 396 career major league innings.

Athletics optioned OF Billy Burns to Triple-A Sacramento.

Burns needed to go to make room for the newly acquired Jonny Gomes. He went hitless in five at-bats in the majors. The 24-year-old, acquired from the Nationals in the Jerry Blevins deal, will be back in September to function as a blazing pinch-running option off the bench.

John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 reports the Diamondbacks have traded Gerardo Parra to the Brewers.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick says that outfield prospect Mitch Haniger, a supplemental first-round pick from 2012, is headed to Arizona in return. The Diamondbacks will also get left-hander Anthony Banda, a 10th-round pick from 2012. Parra hasn't hit very well this season, but he's a very good defensive outfielder.
Jul 31 - 2:02 PM

Athletics designated INF/OF Jake Elmore for assignment.

It's likely Elmore didn't realize, while looking at the Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes for Yoenis Cespedes trade, that his 40-man spot was needed to accommodate the extra big leaguer. Elmore was claimed off waivers by the White Sox from the Astros over the winter, and then dealt to Oakland for cash, so it's possible a team looking for a young utility player will place a claim.
Jul 31 - 2:01 PM

The Reds have dangled Mat Latos in trade discussions, reports ESPN's Jayson Stark.

Cincinnati isn't buying this season, and they may decide to sell -- perhaps even their ace. Reds general manager Walt Jocketty has seen the attractive packages front-line starters Jeff Samardzija and Jon Lester have garnered and may want in on the action. Latos has a 3.31 ERA in eight starts this year after missing the first two and a half months with injury.

The Athletics are getting "flooded" with calls on Jason Hammel, according to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

"Weren’t planning to trade him, but..." Rosenthal tweeted. Billy Beane is going all in on this season, so you'd expect him to only consider a Hammel package that brought back immediate help -- perhaps a bat to slot at designated hitter, or another outfielder to cover for Yoenis Cespedes' move to Boston or Coco Crisp's nagging neck injury? Either way, Beane has the luxury of listening with Jon Lester, Jeff Samardzija, Sonny Gray, Scott Kazmir and Jesse Chavez forming an outstanding rotation, even without Hammel.
Jul 31 - 1:51 PM

Joel Sherman of the New York Post is hearing from sources that the Rays are "definitely moving" David Price.

That echoes a similar report from FOX Sports' Jon Morosi. Tampa Bay has moved into better position for a playoff spot with its strong recent play, but it's probably wise from a bigger-picture perspective to maximize Price's trade value this summer. Look for big news soon. The Dodgers and Mariners are among the teams with known interest.
