Braves transferred RHP Gavin Floyd from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for the Braves' new additions. Floyd underwent season-ending surgery in June to repair a fractured olecranon in his right elbow.
Jul 31 - 5:40 PM

Indians recalled RHP Austin Adams from Triple-A Columbus.

In light of the Justin Masterson trade, the Indians bring back Adams to function as an additional arm in the bullpen. The 27-year-old has been excellent this year at Triple-A, but will only be entrusted with low-leverage situations in the bigs.
Jul 31 - 5:36 PM

C.J. Wilson (ankle, hip) is penciled in to rejoin the Angels' rotation Saturday against the Rays.

Wilson has been sidelined since early July with a right ankle sprain and hip tightness, but he made it through a minor league rehab start Monday with no issues. The 33-year-old southpaw owns a 4.33 ERA and 107/48 K/BB ratio in 116 1/3 innings this season, but there's reason to expect better if he's back to full health.
Jul 31 - 5:34 PM

Diamondbacks recalled OF Roger Kieschnick from Triple-A Reno.

Kieschnick has already had a couple of stints with the D-Backs this year and he's back now that Gerardo Parra has been traded to the Brewers. The 27-year-old is strictly bench depth and doesn't figure to be fantasy relevant.
Jul 31 - 5:31 PM

The Padres didn't trade Joaquin Benoit before Thursday's non-waiver trading deadline.

Great news for Benoit owners, as the 37-year-old remains San Diego's closer. It wouldn't be a surprise, however, if Benoit is moved in a waivers trade in August. The reliever is under contract for $8 million next season and has an $8 million vesting option in 2016. Those numbers are reasonable enough that a contender won't blink an eye, and likely prohibitive enough for non-contenders to pass on him during the waiver process.
Jul 31 - 5:29 PM

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of INF Andy Marte from Triple-A Reno.

Back in the majors for the first time since 2010, the former top prospect was batting .330/.384/.513 with 13 home runs and 62 RBI over 102 games this season in Triple-A. Now 30 years old, Marte could get semi-regular playing time at third base now that Martin Prado is with the Yankees, at least in the short-term, but we're not expecting much of anything in fantasy leagues.
Jul 31 - 5:28 PM

Cubs acquired C Victor Caratini from the Braves for LHP James Russell and Emilio Bonifacio.

Caratini, a second-round pick in 2013, owns a .283/.377/.415 batting line with six home runs and 67 RBI over his first 145 professional games. The 20-year-old was ranked as the team's No. 8 prospect by Baseball America coming into the year, but he was somewhat expendable for the Braves due to the presence of Evan Gattis and Christian Bethancourt. He could turn into something interesting for Chicago, but he's still likely a couple of years away, especially considering he's still adjusting to being a full-time catcher.
Jul 31 - 5:19 PM

Padres sent LHP Jason Lane outright to Triple-A El Paso.

He had been designated for assignment but has cleared waivers and will remain in the organization. Lane tossed six-plus innings of one-run ball in his first major league start on Monday.
