Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Aaron Sanchez from Triple-A Buffalo.
Sanchez is a highly-regarded starting pitching prospect, but the Jays will break him into the majors as a reliever. The 22-year-old has posted a 3.95 ERA and 84/57 K/BB ratio over 100 1/3 innings this season between Double- and Triple-A.
Blue Jays optioned OF Darin Mastroianni to Triple-A Buffalo.
Mastroianni is hitting .156 (5-for-32) with one home run and two RBI over 14 games this season. He could be back in September.
Blue Jays designated LHP Brad Mills for assignment.
As expected, the move clears a spot for Aaron Sanchez on the active roster. Mills was just claimed off waivers from the A's last week and could soon be on the move again.
Cubs recalled RHP Kyle Hendricks from Triple-A Iowa.
Hendricks will return to make the start Tuesday night against the Padres. The 24-year-old has a decent chance to stick in Chicago's rotation the rest of the way and is worth picking up in NL-only leagues.
Shane Victorino is back in Tuesday's lineup against the Blue Jays.
Victorino took a seat Monday, but he's back in right field on Tuesday. Brock Holt will make the start in center field while Jackie Bradley, Jr. will be on the bench.
Scott Rice will undergo season-ending elbow surgery Wednesday in New York.
Rice will have a bone spur removed and a nerve relocated, so he's looking at a four-month rehab process. The 32-year-old southpaw was used heavily by the Mets last season, but he struggled to the tune of a 5.93 ERA over 13 2/3 innings this season prior to being demoted to Triple-A last month.
Reds recalled RHP Curtis Partch from Triple-A Louisville.
Partch will replace the injured Logan Ondrusek (shoulder) on the active roster. Partch has tossed 5 1/3 scoreless innings with the Reds this season and will operate in middle relief.
Reds placed RHP Logan Ondrusek on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 13, with a strained right shoulder.
Curtis Partch will take his place in the Reds' bullpen. Ondrusek owns a 4.31 ERA and 29/13 K/BB ratio over 31 1/3 innings this season.
