Athletics sent OF Kenny Wilson outright to Double-A Midland.

Wilson cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and will remain in the organization. He had just been claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays last month.
Aug 1 - 12:11 PM

Giants released LHP Jose De Paula.

De Paula cleared waivers after being designated for assignment, but the Giants just decided to cut bait. He held a 4.21 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 41/16 K/BB ratio over 51 1/3 innings at Triple-A Fresno this season.
Aug 1 - 12:10 PM

Jon Lester will make his Athletics' debut on Saturday against the Royals.

Coincidentally, Saturday happens to be Yoenis Cespedes (who was traded for Lester) t-shirt day at O.co Coliseum. Lester has put up a 2.52 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 149/32 K/BB ratio in 143 innings this season and should only get better at his new pitcher-friendly park.
Aug 1 - 12:04 PM

Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Astros will call up pitching prospect Michael Foltynewicz from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday.

Ortiz says the Astros plan to use Foltynewicz as a reliever. Eighteen of the 22-year-old's 21 appearances at Oklahoma City this season have been as a starter, but many scouts ultimately see Foltynewicz as a reliever over the long haul. Ranked prior to the season by Baseball America as the team's No. 4 prospect, Foltynewicz holds a 5.08 ERA but has struck out a batter per inning at Triple-A. His fastball can reach triple digits.
Aug 1 - 11:55 AM

Jarred Cosart will make his Marlins' debut on Friday against the Reds.

He'll take the spot of Jacob Turner, who is presumably headed to the bullpen. Acquire via trade from the Astros on Thursday, Cosart holds a 4.41 ERA with just 75 strikeouts over 116 1/3 innings this season. He's not really an option in mixed leagues.
Aug 1 - 11:12 AM

Nationals manager Matt Williams said Thursday that the newly acquired Asdrubal Cabrera will receive the "majority" of the starts at second base.

That means the bench for Danny Espinosa, who offers excellent defense but is hitting just .221/.287/.354 this season. Anthony Rendon will continue to hold down the fort at third base with Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) out indefinitely. Cabrera, who hasn’t played second base since 2009, has nine homers and 40 RBI this season but is batting only .246/.305/.386 overall. He's not much of a fantasy option in mixed leagues.
Aug 1 - 11:05 AM

Mariners outfield prospect Alex Jackson (facial fracture) is on track to return to the team's Arizona League club in mid-August.

Jackson suffered a broken bone in his left cheek last month when he was struck by a flyball after losing it in the lights. "About 10 days," general manager Jack Zduriencik said Thursday. "He wants to go now." Jackson, the No. 6 pick in June's draft, was batting .289 with two homers and 15 RBI in 20 games before the injury.
Aug 1 - 10:46 AM

Alex Speier of WEEI.com reports that the Red Sox have promoted pitching prospect Henry Owens to Triple-A Pawtucket.

He's filling the rotation spot vacated by Anthony Ranaudo, who will make his major league debut on Friday. Boston's top pitching prospect, Owens earned the promotion by posting a 2.60 ERA with a 126/47 K/BB ratio over 121 innings. It's possible that he'll get a cup of coffee next month if things go well at Pawtucket.
