Angels placed LHP C.J. Wilson on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 29, with left elbow inflammation.
Wilson had fluid drained from the elbow earlier this season and he's now having trouble with it again. It doesn't appear he has any structural issues, so the lefty should be back at some point in August. Jered Weaver (hip) will take his rotation spot.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Friday that Luis Severino's next start will come in the majors.
The Yankees weren't able to land a starter at the trade deadline, but part of the reason they felt comfortable passing on deals is surely that they felt good about giving Severino a shot. It's unclear what day the top prospect will debut, but he'll take Michael Pineda's (forearm) spot in the rotation. Severino is worth a shot in all fantasy leagues.
Marlins acquired LHP Cody Ege and C Tomas Telis from the Rangers in exchange for RHP Sam Dyson.
Ege boasts a 2.29 ERA with 177 strikeouts across 137 2/3 career minor league innings. He could get a shot with the Marlins during the second half.
Marlins acquired C Tomas Telis and LHP Cody Ege from the Rangers in exchange for RHP Sam Dyson; optioned Telis to Triple-A New Orleans.
Telis has hit only .241/.268/.266 in his chances in the majors so far but is a career .291/.325/.400 batter in the minors. He could be J.T. Realmuto's long-term backup.
Rangers acquired RHP Sam Dyson from the Marlins in exchange for C Tomas Telis and LHP Cody Ege.
Dyson holds a 3.68 ERA with 41 strikeouts over 44 innings this season. He'll be used in the middle innings.
Indians acquired OF Abraham Almonte from the Padres in exchange for LHP Marc Rzepczynski; optioned him to Triple-A Columbus.
Almonte has hit only .204/.271/.259 in the majors this season. He's simply a depth guy.
Padres acquired LHP Marc Rzepczynski from the Indians in exchange for OF Abraham Almonte.
Rzepczynski holds a 4.43 ERA over 45 relief appearances this season. There's a good chance the Indians would have non-tendered him over the winter.
Cardinals optioned RHP Miguel Socolovich to Triple-A Memphis.
He's making room for Jonathan Broxton on the roster. Socolovich is being sent out even though he holds a 1.54 ERA over 21 relief appearances.
