Rays designated RHP Diego Moreno for assignment.

The move clears a 40-man roster for left-handed reliever Dan Jennings, who was acquired from the White Sox on Thursday morning. Moreno just returned to action in the minors after missing two months with a right shoulder injury. He will probably pass through waivers unclaimed.

White Sox acquired 1B Casey Gillaspie from the Rays for LHP Dan Jennings.

White Sox general manager Rick Hahn continues to wheel and deal. Gillaspie has posted a disappointing .227/.296/.357 batting line with nine home runs and 44 RBI in 95 games this season at the Triple-A level, but he was the 20th overall pick in the 2014 MLB Draft and Baseball America ranked him as a top-100 prospect this spring. He's a nice get for Jennings, an arbitration-eligible left-handed reliever.

Rays acquired LHP Dan Jennings from the White Sox for 1B Casey Gillaspie.

Yet another White Sox reliever out the door. Jennings had registered a 3.45 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 38/19 K/BB ratio in 44 1/3 innings this season for Chicago and will now slide into a left-handed setup role with Tampa Bay. The 30-year-old southpaw is under contractual control through 2019.

Shawn Kelley (trapezius) is set to begin a rehab assignment Saturday with Triple-A Syracuse.

Kelley got the go-ahead after a successful simulated appearance on Wednesday. He is scheduled to pitch twice at Syracuse and should then be cleared to return to the Nationals' bullpen. The right-hander has been sidelined since June 17 because of a strained trapezius.
Jul 27 - 10:37 AM

Chase Anderson (oblique) made 25 throws from a mound in a light bullpen session Wednesday.

Anderson said he felt encouraged by the workout and might soon advance to full-intensity throwing. The right-hander has been on the disabled list since late June because of a left oblique strain. He's trending toward a mid-August return to the Brewers' starting rotation.
Jul 27 - 10:33 AM

Yusmeiro Petit is scheduled to make a spot start for the Angels on Saturday in Toronto.

It will essentially be a bullpen game, with Petit expected to cover the first three or four innings. The 32-year-old right-hander holds a strong 2.70 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and 59/17 K/BB ratio in 36 relief appearances this season, but he's not stretched out enough to make for an attractive fantasy streaming option.
Jul 27 - 10:19 AM

Yunel Escobar is absent from the Angels' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Indians.

Escobar went 0-for-5 with a strikeout on Wednesday and is batting just .211/.253/.282 in July. Luis Valbuena will start at third base and hit sixth on Thursday at Cleveland.
Jul 27 - 9:59 AM

Ryan Braun is out of the Brewers' starting lineup on Thursday against the Nationals.

It appears to be a routine day of maintenance for the veteran outfielder. Hernan Perez is in left field and Lewis Brinson will play center field in the matinee game at Nationals Park.
