Marlins optioned OF Marcell Ozuna to Triple-A New Orleans.

It's a very curious move for the Marlins, who are struggling as a team on offense, to demote their starting center fielder to Triple-A. While he has struggled of late, the 24-year-old is still hitting a respectable .249/.301/.337 on the season with four homers and 26 RBI in 79 games.
Jul 5 - 5:22 PM

Kyle Hendricks was on his game in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Marlins, tossing 7 1/3 innings of shutout baseball.

Hendricks and Marlins starter Mat Latos were locked into an old school pitcher's duel, with both pitchers lasting through seven innings. It was Hendricks who persevered for the victory, improving to 4-4 on the year. He'll carry a 3.82 ERA and 1.15 WHIP into his next start, a home showdown with the rival White Sox.

Cubs 3B prospect Jeimer Candelario mashed four hits in Saturday's win for High-A Myrtle Beach.

That's a season-high for Candelario, who has hit .400 with 10 RBI over his last eight games. His average has shot up 19 points during that span (.263 to .282). 28 of Candelario's 73 hits this season have gone for extra bases. The 23-year-old has posted a .313 average in 83 at-bats since June 1. Before that, he was hitting just .267.

Braves reinstated RHP Arodys Vizcaino from the restricted list.

The right-hander was suspended for the first 80 games of the 2015 season due to a positive test for performance-enhancing drugs. The 24-year-old has a very live arm and will be used in middle relief for the Braves.
Jul 5 - 5:17 PM

Mat Latos pitched well in Sunday's tough 2-0 loss to the Cubs, yielding one run on one hit over seven innings.

Latos has pitched erratically this season, but he worked more as Mr. Hyde than Dr. Jekyll against the Cubs on Sunday, striking out seven against two walks, with the only run to score against him coming when he threw a wild pitch with a runner on third in the first inning. That would be all that the Cubs needed to stick Latos with the hard-luck 2-0 defeat. At the end of June, Fox Sports' Jon Morosi reported that multiple teams had inquired about some of the Marlin starters, including Latos. It's possible we'll see him in a different uniform in the coming weeks, though that's just informed speculation at this point. Latos' 4.90 ERA and 1.31 WHIP are disappointing, but given that he's never posted an ERA higher than 3.50 in any full season in his career, a change of scenery could do him wonders.
Jul 5 - 5:16 PM

Braves purchased the contract of RHP David Carpenter from Triple-A Gwinnett.

The 27-year-old hurler sports a 0.73 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 36/15 K/BB ratio over 37 frames at Triple-A. He'll work in middle relief for the Braves.
Jul 5 - 5:15 PM

Braves designated LHP Dana Eveland for assignment.

The veteran southpaw posted a 6.00 ERA, 2.67 WHIP and 4/3 K/BB ratio in his three innings with the big league club. It's unclear if he'll look to latch on elsewhere, or accept an assignment to Triple-A and continue to provide organizational bullpen depth.
Jul 5 - 5:13 PM

Tommy Pham went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and an RBI double in Sunday's win over the Padres.

Pham drove in all three Cardinal runs, all off of Padres starter Ian Kennedy. He smacked a two-run homer in the third inning and an RBI double in the fifth. As long as the Cardinals continue to grapple with outfield injuries, Pham figures to see at-bats. He hit .338/.402/.625 with five homers and six steals in 24 games for Triple-A Memphis and owners in deeper leagues might want to keep an eye on him to see if he's able to string together a little hot streak before pitchers catch up to his tendencies.
