Giants released OF Justin Ruggiano.

Ruggiano was pushed off San Francisco's 40-man roster back in early June after batting just .217/.238/.333 across 63 plate appearances. The veteran outfielder turned 35 years old in April.

Michael Conforto is not in the Mets' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Padres.

Curtis Granderson is in center field and batting leadoff, with Jay Bruce covering right field and hitting cleanup. This looks to be a routine breather for Conforto.
Jul 25 - 6:46 PM

According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the Brewers and Tigers are "engaged in ongoing discussions" on a trade involving both Ian Kinsler and Justin Wilson.

ESPN's Buster Olney was first to report word of the Brewers' interest in Kinsler last week. The veteran second baseman is batting just .248/.331/.399 with nine home runs and 28 RBI in 81 games this season, but he's only owed around $4 million and the Brewers are exploring a range of options to upgrade their roster for the stretch run. Wilson, a 29-year-old left-handed reliever, owns a 2.75 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, and 55/16 K/BB ratio in 39 1/3 innings this season with Detroit.
Jul 25 - 6:44 PM

Giants recalled RHP Chris Stratton from Triple-A Sacramento.

Stratton has a 9.00 ERA in one start and two relief appearances this season with San Francisco. The 26-year-old right-hander will presumably work in a bullpen role.
Jul 25 - 6:39 PM

Giants optioned OF/INF Orlando Calixte to Triple-A Sacramento.

The 25-year-old utilityman has batted just .172/.242/.207 in 33 plate appearances this season at the major league level. Chris Stratton will fill his roster spot.
Jul 25 - 6:38 PM

According to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com, the Yankees are "making progress toward" a trade with the A's that would involve both Sonny Gray and Yonder Alonso.

Feinsand notes that Oakland has been "heavily scouting the Yankees' system of late." Gray is also believed to be drawing serious trade interest from the Nationals, Dodgers, Astros, and Braves. The 27-year-old right-hander holds a 3.66 ERA, 1.176 WHIP, and 85/28 K/BB ratio in 91 innings this season and he is under contractual control through 2019. Alonso, a 30-year-old first baseman batting .264/.363/.535 with 21 home runs in 89 games, is scheduled to become a free agent this winter.

Jhoulys Chacin has been scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday against the Mets due to back tightness.

The hope is that he will be able to start on Wednesday. Kyle Lloyd is set to take the mound in Chacin's place Tuesday in what will be the 26-year-old right-hander's major league debut.
Jul 25 - 6:30 PM

Padres purchased the contract of RHP Kyle Lloyd from Triple-A El Paso.

Lloyd will make his major league debut as the Padres' starting pitcher Tuesday night against the Mets. The 26-year-old right-hander threw a no-hitter earlier this season at Double-A San Antonio, but there are better fantasy streaming options out there.
