Padres activated SS Everth Cabrera from the 15-day disabled list.

Cabrera wound up missing close to four weeks with a left hamstring strain. The speedy shortstop has posted a hideous .218/.256/.290 batting line in 80 games this year.

Padres designated LHP Jason Lane for assignment.

Lane tossed six-plus innings of one-run ball in his first major league start Monday afternoon against the Braves, but he didn't figure into the San Diego rotation going forward. The former outfielder could draw interest on waivers as a left-handed reliever.

Michael Saunders will take on-field batting practice Tuesday for the first time since straining his oblique.

If all goes smoothly, Saunders could begin a minor league rehab assignment by the end of this week. The outfielder has been on the disabled list since July 11.

Sam Fuld - OF - Twins

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Athletics are looking at numerous outfield options, including Sam Fuld of the Twins.

Fuld had a brief stint with the Athletics earlier this season and the club is looking for some outfield depth given the health of Coco Crisp (neck) and Craig Gentry (hand). The 32-year-old has played well since joining the Twins, but it likely wouldn't take much to acquire him.

Jayson Werth (ankle) is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Marlins.

Werth left Monday's game after twisting his right ankle, but the expectation was that he would be good to go Tuesday. However, he apparently needs some more time. Nate McLouth will start in right field.
Jul 29 - 3:39 PM

Marlon Byrd is getting a scheduled day off Tuesday.

With the trade deadline looming, it was a bit curious to see Byrd out of the lineup Tuesday, but there's nothing doing yet. Still, there's a decent chance he'll be moved by Thursday.

According to Jeff Passan and Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports, the Pirates are "a fast-emerging dark horse" to acquire Jon Lester from the Red Sox.

The Pirates could use an ace as much as anyone and they have the prospects to get a deal done. For what it's worth, prospect outfielder Josh Bell is said to be "at the center" of talks. The Dodgers, Brewers, and Orioles are among the other teams who have been linked to Lester over the past couple of days.
