Blue Jays optioned C Erik Kratz to Triple-A Buffalo.

The Blue Jays are expected to make multiple roster moves in advance of Tuesday's game. Kratz has hit .198 with three homers and a .572 OPS over 84 plate appearances with the Jays this season.

Blue Jays shortstop prospect Franklin Barreto went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, and a stolen base for short season-A Vancouver on Monday, raising his season line to .314/.390/.479.

Barreto has hits in 15 of his last 16 games, putting up a .385/.446/.646 line with six doubles, four triples, and one home run. He is an elite athlete with the potential to hit .280 with 10-plus home runs, 20-plus doubles, and 20-plus stolen bases, but may need to move to the outfield if he cannot improve his infield defense.

Rangers third base prospect Ryan Rua went 3-for-4 with two home runs for Triple-A Round Rock on Monday.

Rua has spent roughly one-third of his games in left field since being promoted to Triple-A, possibly as reaction to the Joey Gallo's breakout season. Rua has held his own, hitting .296/.348/.531 over 21 games in the Pacific Coast League since his promotion. Rua has not been able to replicate the 32 home runs he hit in 2013, but his combined line of .299/.369/.488 is better than his .247/.347/.525 line from 2013.

Jason Marquis has been placed on the disabled list at Triple-A Lehigh Valley due to a strained right oblique.

Marquis' contract included an opt-out on July 31, but the injury figures to keep him around for a little while longer. The 35-year-old right-hander has a 2.22 ERA over his first four starts in Triple-A.

Yankees acquired 3B Chase Headley and cash considerations from the Padres for INF Yangervis Solarte and RHP Rafael De Paula.

The deal is now official. Headley's stock has plummeted since his breakout season in 2012, but he's a worthwhile gamble for the Yankees given their current options at third base. The 30-year-old has swung the bat better of late and has good road numbers for his career, so it would be no surprise if he finishes his walk year on a high note.
Jul 22 - 1:40 PM

Padres acquired INF Yangervis Solarte and RHP Rafael De Paula from the Yankees for 3B Chase Headley and cash considerations.

The Yankees picked Solarte up for nothing over the winter and managed to turn him into an upgrade at third base. Pretty nice work by GM Brian Cashman. For San Diego, this was mostly about getting anything for Headley, who will be a free agent after the season. A qualifying offer wasn't a realistic option, as he likely would have accepted a one-year deal in the range of $15 million. Solarte could see some time at third base down the stretch in San Diego, but his days of fantasy relevancy are likely already behind him.

Padres acquired RHP Rafael De Paula from the Yankees in the Chase Headley deal.

The Padres also acquired Yangervis Solarte, but De Paula is the most intriguing piece. The 23-year-old owns a 4.15 ERA and 104/38 K/BB ratio over 89 innings this season with High-A Tampa. He has a big arm and has struggled with his control at times, so some believe he could end up in the bullpen in the long-term.
Jul 22 - 1:36 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees have dealt pitching prospect Rafael DePaula to the Padres as part of the Chase Headley trade.

DePaula has as good fastball and slider, but has poor command and a well below-average change-up. The Yankees have been developing the 23-year old Dominican as a starter, and the Padres will likely continue to do so, though his poor command and solid two-pitch mix could turn him into another solid relief option for the Padres.
