Cardinals prospect right-hander Alex Reyes struck out five batters over six innings for Low-A Peoria on Wednesday, allowing three hits, two walks, and one run.

Two of the three hits were doubles, and hitters have a .205/.328/.305 off Reyes for the season. He has the potential to be a frontline pitcher, but his below-average command could prevent him from reaching his ceiling. He has a 5.7 BB/9 for the season, but has dominated Low-A hitters and his WHIP is only 1.382. Reyes won't turn 20 until the end of August, and will likely spend the rest of the season in the Midwest League.

Rockies outfield prospect Raimel Tapia went 2-for-5 with a home run for Low-A Asheville on Wednesday.

Tapia is hitting .331/.387/.463 for the season, and is hitting .351/.430/.500 in July. He started slowly, but has displayed an innate ability to make solid contact and has the potential to be a batting champion in the major leagues. The Rockies promoted David Dahl to High-A Modesto, and Tapia could be next.

Marwin Gonzalez is in the Astros' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon versus the Athletics.

Gonzalez was pulled from Wednesday's game with soreness in his right hamstring -- something he's been dealing with since last week. But it's a manageable injury and he'll start at shortstop on Thursday. Gonzalez is batting .294/.333/.412 so far in July. He took over starting duties from Jonathan Villar at the end of June.

Orioles acquired INF Jimmy Paredes from the Royals for cash; optioned him to Triple-A Norfolk.

Paredes was designated for assignment by Kansas City over the All-Star break. He has posted a decent .305/.332/.457 batting line with 17 stolen bases in 65 games this season at the Triple-A level, but the 25-year-old has never had much success in the majors.
Jul 24 - 1:18 PM

Yoenis Cespedes (thumb) is not in the A's starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Astros.

Cespedes sprained his right thumb on a hard swing late Wednesday night -- after clubbing two home runs earlier in the game. X-rays ruled out a fracture, but the Cuban slugger could need multiple days of rest.
Jul 24 - 1:08 PM

Athletics recalled RHP Evan Scribner from Triple-A Sacramento.

Scribner is taking the bullpen spot left vacant by Jim Johnson, who was designated for assignment on Thursday afternoon. Scribner has made two scoreless appearances this season for Oakland. He'll pitch in middle relief.

Athletics designated RHP Jim Johnson for assignment.

Oakland GM Billy Beane made a rare mistake this winter when he traded for Johnson and his $10 million salary for 2014. The right-hander had poor peripherals in Baltimore despite his dominant save totals and wound up posting a brutal 6.92 ERA in 40 1/3 innings with the A's. Johnson should latch on with a new team pretty quickly as a reclamation project, but he's probably done getting save opportunities.
Jul 24 - 12:56 PM

Mets recalled SS Wilmer Flores from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Flores has batted just .225/.253/.300 in 83 plate appearances this season at the major league level, but the 22-year-old infielder has been a force in the Pacific Coast League. He was rated a Top 75 prospect this winter by Baseball Prospectus and may carry mixed-league fantasy value if he finds consistent playing time in New York.
