Mariners designated 2B Willie Bloomquist for assignment.

The 37-year-old has hit just .159 this season with two runs and one extra-base hit. Chris Taylor was called up from Triple-A Tacoma to take his place on the active roster. If Bloomquist decides to hang up his cleats, he'll finish his career with 778 hits in 1,055 big league appearances.
Jul 2 - 2:31 PM

Astros transferred RHP Brad Peacock (intercostal) to the 60-day disabled list.

Peacock suffered an intercostal strain in his first start and hasn't pitched in the big leagues since. He was close to coming back but suffered a setback during a rehab appearance on June 11. Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija should be available if the Astros choose to upgrade their starting rotation at the trade deadline.
Jul 2 - 2:18 PM

Astros placed OF George Springer on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right wrist.

Edinson Volquez drilled Springer with a 96 mph fastball on Wednesday night and now he'll miss six weeks. Alex Presley was called up from Triple-A Fresno to take his place in right field. Springer has been a different player since moving into the leadoff spot, batting .325 with 12 RBI since June 1. The 25-year-old had been on pace for 26 homers and 28 stolen bases before his injury. It's a big loss for fantasy owners.
Jul 2 - 1:56 PM

Phillies activated RHP Chad Billingsley (lat) from the 15-day disabled list.

He'll take Aaron Harang's spot in the starting rotation. If Billingsley wins Thursday against Milwaukee, it will be his first victory in the majors since April 10, 2013. He went 1-1 with a 5.06 ERA during a three-game rehab stint with Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Jul 2 - 1:46 PM

Phillies placed RHP Aaron Harang on the 15-day disabled list with plantar fasciitis.

This has "phantom injury" written all over it. Harang has imploded over his last eight starts, losing all eight with a 6.94 ERA. His outing Wednesday against the Brewers may have been his worst yet. He scattered 14 hits and eight runs over five brutal innings. The Phillies activated Chad Billingsley from the 15-day disabled list in the corresponding roster move.
Jul 2 - 1:42 PM

Royals prospect LHP Sean Manaea (abdomen) allowed three runs (one earned) on six hits in five innings on Monday for High-A Wilmington.

He struck out eight batters in the outing without issuing a walk. Manaea was moved up to Wilmington after making his season debut in the Rookie Arizona League the previous week. The 23-year-old left-hander posted a 3.11 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, .228 opponents’ batting average, 4.0 BB/9 and 10.8 K/9 in 121 2/3 innings (25 starts) last season in his professional debut for Wilmington. Assuming he stays healthy, Manaea likely will spend a majority of the 2015 season at Double-A Northwest Arkansas.
Jul 2 - 1:38 PM

Michael Cuddyer (knee) remained out of the Mets' lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

He got an injection Wednesday and may need a few days to recover. Manager Terry Collins said Cuddyer could require a trip to the disabled list if he doesn't improve in the next three days. Eric Campbell and John Mayberry would split time in left field if Cuddyer faces a lengthy absence.
Jul 2 - 1:30 PM

Twins prospect RHP Nick Burdi has been demoted to High-A Fort Myers from Double-A Chattanooga.

The Twins selected Burdi in the second round of the 2014 draft, targeting the Louisville closer for his potential to impact a big league bullpen in short order. Unfortunately, that hasn’t been the case for the 22-year-old right-hander, who is headed back to the Florida State League after posting a 5.93 ERA, 1.78 WHIP and 33/22 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 30 1/3 innings (22 appearances) at Double-A Chattanooga. Burdi dominated last summer after signing, pitching to a 2.66 ERA with five saves and 16.8 K/9 in 20 1/3 innings (20 appearances) between both Class-A levels.
