Rangers released RHP Jaye Chapman.

Chapman had an ugly 6.63 ERA and 1.72 WHIP through 36 2/3 innings this summer in the Rangers' minor league system. The 30-year-old right-hander hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2012.

Seung Hwan Oh worked a scoreless seventh inning Wednesday night against the Red Sox.

Oh needed just 10 total pitches to retire Jackie Bradley, Eduardo Nunez, and Mookie Betts. The South Korean right-hander boasts a 0.82 ERA and 13/0 K/BB ratio over his last 12 appearances and could take back over as the Cardinals' primary closer if Trevor Rosenthal (arm) lands on the disabled list. Tyler Lyons and John Brebbia might also enter the ninth-inning mix.

Rangers released LHP Bobby LaFromboise.

LaFromboise had logged just three innings this season with the Rangers' rookie-level Arizona League team. The 31-year-old left-hander hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2015.

Trevor Rosenthal will be examined by the Cardinals' medical staff for renewed tightness in his right arm.

Rosenthal was pulled from a save chance Wednesday night against the Red Sox after giving up a homer and a walk to the first two batters he faced. His fastball velocity was way down and Cardinals manager Mike Matheny noted in his postgame press conference that "something didn't look right." This comes with frustrating timing, as Rosenthal had recaptured ninth-inning duties in St. Louis this summer alongside a career-best strikeout rate. Seung Hwan Oh, Tyler Lyons, and John Brebbia could all see saves down the stretch if Rosenthal is badly injured. Oh is probably the best fantasy stash of the group.

Andre Ethier (back) went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts and a walk Wednesday in his third rehab game with High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

The promising news is he was able to play six innings in left field without his back flaring up. Ethier will likely join the Dodgers when rosters expand in September, assuming he can avoid further setbacks. The veteran outfielder has been sidelined all season.

Kevin Kiermaier (hip) is eyeing a return this weekend, per Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.

Kiermaier is just 1-for-15 through four rehab games at High-A Charlotte, but if he feels good after playing a full nine innings of center field on Thursday it sounds like the Rays might activate him from the disabled list ahead of Friday's series opener against the visiting Mariners. Kiermaier has been on the shelf since early June because of a fractured hip. He also came down with a minor back issue in late July.

Alex Cobb (toe) threw a successful 40-pitch bullpen session Wednesday at Tropicana Field.

Rays manager Kevin Cash told reporters that Cobb "felt very good" during and after the workout, calling the progress "great news." It sounds like the right-hander will be cleared to return to Tampa Bay's starting rotation next week, without making a minor league rehab start. Cobb, out since August 6 due to turf toe, holds a 3.80 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 96/37 K/BB ratio in 147 innings this season.
Aug 17 - 8:37 AM

Grant Dayton (neck) said he's expecting to be activated from the disabled list on September 1.

Dayton will spend one week pitching in rehab games with Double-A Tulsa and the next week appearing in rehab games at Triple-A Oklahoma City. He'll then be ready to rock when rosters expand. The lefty reliever has struggled with his command in 2017 and the Dodgers have fared just fine without him, so a slow process seems like the wise process here.
