According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Rangers are "now the clear-cut favorite" to land Cole Hamels.

Nightengale says the Dodgers prefer David Price, and the Tigers made it public Wednesday that they're going to begin selling parts. Hamels is also drawing interest from the Astros, but word from Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle is that the Astros expect the ace left-hander to land elsewhere. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported Wednesday afternoon that the Giants are "fading" in the Hamels chase. It's all coming together for Texas.

Rangers recalled RHP Jon Edwards from Triple-A Round Rock.

Edwards has posted very good numbers this season at the Triple-A level, but he has struggled mightily in the majors. The right-hander will pitch in middle relief.
Jul 29 - 4:48 PM

Rangers recalled LHP Alex Claudio from Triple-A Round Rock.

Claudio holds a solid 2.87 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 18 appearances this season at the major league level. The 23-year-old will function as a left-handed specialist.
Jul 29 - 4:47 PM

Rangers optioned RHP Phil Klein to Triple-A Round Rock.

Klein owns a 5.82 ERA in 17 innings this season at the major league level. He'll get another shot at some point.
Jul 29 - 4:46 PM

Rangers designated LHP Wandy Rodriguez for assignment.

Wandy was lit up for seven earned runs in just one inning of work Tuesday by the Yankees. The 36-year-old left-hander has shown promise at times this season, but it seems like he'll probably pass through waivers. He has a 4.90 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 86 1/3 innings.
Jul 29 - 4:45 PM

An MRI taken Wednesday on Manny Banuelos' left elbow showed a posterior bone spur.

The hope is that he will be able to pitch again this season, but there are no guarantees. Banuelos was placed on the disabled list earlier this week.
Jul 29 - 4:43 PM

Mike Trout (wrist) is out of the Angels' starting lineup again on Wednesday night.

Trout injured his wrist on a diving catch attempt Monday. An MRI taken Tuesday showed only inflammation and the star center fielder is fully expected to avoid the 15-day disabled list. David DeJesus is starting in center field Wednesday in his Angels debut.
Jul 29 - 4:41 PM

Angels designated OF Efren Navarro for assignment.

Anaheim needed to clear out roster spots for the arrival of David Murphy and David DeJesus. Navarro, 29, is a .248/.306/.328 career hitter at the major league level.
