Red Sox recalled RHP Brandon Workman from Triple-A Pawtucket.
Workman is starting Wednesday in place of Jon Lester, who was scratched from the outing amid rampant trade speculation. Workman owns a 4.13 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and 41/19 K/BB ratio in 52 1/3 innings this season, but he's not a very good fantasy play versus Toronto.
Eugenio Suarez (back) is not in the Tigers' starting lineup on Wednesday against the White Sox.
Suarez made an early exit from Tuesday's game after experiencing tightness in his lower back. It's not a serious issue and he expects to return to action Thursday.
Cubs recalled LHP Chris Rusin from Triple-A Iowa.
Rusin has allowed six runs in 8 2/3 innings this season for Chicago. He will pitch in middle relief.
Cubs acquired LHP Felix Doubront from the Cubs for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Doubront posted a rough 6.07 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 59 1/3 innings this season for Boston and asked for a trade request when the Red Sox pulled him from the rotation. He has good raw stuff and should get a chance to start in Chicago, but the lefty remains a poor fantasy bet.
Josh Rutledge (illness) will be available in an emergency on Wednesday night versus the Cubs.
Rutledge is still getting over the upper respiratory infection that kept him out of the lineup on Monday and Tuesday. He'll be on the bench again Wednesday but could enter late as a pinch-hitter or defensive replacement.
Rockies recalled RHP Rob Scahill from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Scahill has posted a 6.75 ERA in three relief appearances this season out of the Rockies' bullpen. He is doubtful to pitch in any high-leverage situations.
Rockies optioned INF Christian Adames to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Adames was only with the Rockies for about 24 hours. The 23-year-old owns an unimpressive .276/.332/.351 slash line this season between Double-A and Triple-A.
Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak told Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he was never close to trading outfielder Oscar Taveras.
Taveras was floated as a possible centerpiece for trades involving players like David Price and Jon Lester, but the Cardinals got Justin Masterson from the Indians on Wednesday afternoon for outfield prospect James Ramsey and appear to be done dealing. According to Miklasz, the Cards' GM was "amused by the speculation that had him moving Taveras." Now if only manager Mike Matheny would play the ultra-talented 21-year-old on a regular basis.
