Astros purchased the contract of RHP Michael Foltynewicz from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Ranked prior to the season by Baseball America as the team's No. 4 prospect, Foltynewicz holds a 5.08 ERA but has struck out a batter per inning at Oklahoma City this season. While he will compete for a rotation spot next spring, Foltynewicz will be used as a reliever for the final two months as a means to keep his innings down.

Collin Cowgill (nose) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.

Cowgill has been out since mid-July with a broken nose and thumb. He should be activated early next week if all goes well.
Aug 1 - 12:52 PM

MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports that the Braves are expected to designate Jordan Schafer for assignment.

The Braves need to clear roster space for the arrival of new acquisitions Emilio Bonifacio and James Russell. Schafer sports a hideous .163/.256/.213 batting line this season and has started just two games over the last month, so the move comes as no surprise.
Aug 1 - 12:41 PM

Jordan Lyles (hand) struck out four over 4 2/3 scoreless inning in his second rehab start for Triple-A Colorado Springs on Wednesday.

All told, Lyles has now spun 8 1/3 scoreless frames during his two rehab outings. The Rockies haven't officially announced anything, but the right-hander could rejoin the rotation as soon as Monday, the first day he's eligible to be activated. Lyles has been out since early June with a fractured middle metacarpal on his left hand.
Aug 1 - 12:35 PM

A.J. Pollock (hand) began a rehab assignment with the Diamondbacks' Arizona League team on Thursday.

He was retired in his lone at-bat, but that hardly matters. Pollock has been sidelined for the last two months after breaking his right hand and is expected to need a couple weeks' worth of rehab at-bats before being activated. He was hitting .316/.366/.554 with six homers, 15 RBI and eight steals before getting hurt, so feel free to stash him now if he's been dropped in your league.
Aug 1 - 12:31 PM

Angel Pagan (back) doubled twice in three at-bats in his first rehab game with the Giants' Arizona League club on Thursday.

Pagan's back ailment has progressed well over the past week and he didn't show any rustiness in his first game action in seven weeks. It's not clear how many rehab games the outfielder will need, but he's close to rejoining the Giants' lineup.
Aug 1 - 12:28 PM

Robbie Erlin (elbow) will move his rehab assignment up to Double-A San Antonio on Friday.

Erin struck out five over two scoreless innings for the Padres' Arizona League club on Sunday. It's not clear what he'll get his pitch count up to on Friday, but the left-hander appears to be tracking towards a mid-August return.
Aug 1 - 12:25 PM

Brewers optioned OF Logan Schafer to Triple-A Nashville.

He's clearing room for Gerardo Parra, who was added via trade Thursday. Schafer has batted only .183/.267/.288 with the big club this season.
