Jose Bautista left Tuesday's game versus the Phillies with an apparent right hamstring injury.

Bautista pulled up lame while running out a groundball. It looked like a potentially significant injury, but we'll have to wait and see what the Blue Jays say after the game.

Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that it would take a "deadline type premium" for the Rays to trade Brad Boxberger or Jake McGee.

Boxberger isn't eligible for arbitration until after next season, so he always seemed unlikely to be dealt. It appears McGee will also probably stay put even though he's starting to get expensive in arbitration. Kevin Jepsen seems like the Rays reliever most likely to be on the move.

Angels designated RHP Vinnie Pestano for assignment.

It's been quite a fall for Pestano, who looked like one of the better relievers in the American League a few years ago. The 30-year-old has put up a 24/4 K/BB ratio over 20 Triple-A innings this season but holds a 5.40 ERA in 19 relief appearances with the big club. He'll clear waivers given his $1.15 million salary.

Indians acquired SS Eric Stamets from the Angels in exchange for OF David Murphy.

Stamets is known for a good glove but has hit just .262/.317/.351 with limited power in his four pro seasons. He was ranked prior to the season by Baseball America as the Angels' No. 23 prospect.
Jul 28 - 8:39 PM

Angels acquired OF David Murphy and cash considerations from the Indians in exchange for SS Eric Stamets.

Murphy should take over as the regular left fielder against right-handers, although he could also see some start in the designated hitter spot. He's batting .296/.344/.437 this season and should form a solid platoon with Shane Victorino.
Jul 28 - 8:35 PM

Emilio Bonifacio exited Tuesday's game against the Red Sox with a left rib injury.

Bonifacio was nailed with a ground ball. He'll be re-evaluated Wednesday.
Jul 28 - 8:32 PM

Nationals designated C Dan Butler for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Jonathan Papelbon. Butler, 28, has hit .231/.315/.312 with one homer at Triple-A this season and has a good chance to clear waivers.
Jul 28 - 8:30 PM

Aaron Brooks will be recalled to start on Saturday against the Indians.

Acquired from the Royals in the Ben Zobrist deal, Brooks holds a 3.71 ERA over 18 appearances -- 17 starts -- at Triple-A this season. The A's will keep Drew Pomeranz in the bullpen.
