Cardinals optioned OF Magneuris Sierra to Double-A Springfield.

Sierra sports a .365/.400/.365 batting line during his time in the majors this season, but the Cards have decided they'd rather have the 21-year-old playing regularly in the minors. Randal Grichuk is back from the disabled list to assume his roster spot.

Cardinals activated OF Randal Grichuk from the 10-day disabled list.

Grichuk missed barely over the minimum amount of a time with a lower back strain. He should see regular starts at least until Stephen Piscotty (groin) returns from the disabled list next week.

Cardinals designated C Eric Fryer for assignment.

Fryer hit an ugly .155/.277/.197 this season and hardly played as Yadier Molina's backup. He's being replaced on the roster by Carson Kelly.

Kris Bryant (finger) could miss the entire weekend series against the Cardinals.

X-rays on Bryant's left pinkie came back clean after he was injured on a head-first slide Wednesday, but he's not feeling 100 percent. It doesn't appear at this point, however, that he'll require a disabled list stint. Javy Baez is at third base Friday, and Tommy La Stella is also a candidate to pick up starts.

Jumbo Diaz has elected free agency.

Diaz cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and will look for a gig elsewhere rather than accept an outright assignment. The big righty holds a 5.70 ERA this season and will likely have to settle for a minor league contract.

Cardinals recalled C Carson Kelly from Triple-A Memphis.

Joe Schwarz of TheIntrepidSTL.com was first to report on Kelly's promotion. The Cards have designated the .155/.277/.197-hitting Eric Fryer for assignment. Considered by most to be the top catching prospect in the game, Kelly has batted .283/.375/.459 with 10 homers and 41 RBI this season at Memphis. As intriguing a prospect as Kelly is, though, he's not going to have fantasy value while playing behind Yadier Molina.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Blue Jays "have gotten some feelers" on Jose Bautista.

There are some hurdles to a potential trade, though, the first of which is that Bautista is hitting a disappointing .227/.340/.402 with 16 home runs this season and just .197/.312/.338 since June 1. He also has 10-and-5 rights and thus can veto any deal. However, while the Jays no doubt would have to pick up a chunk of what remains of his $18 million salary for this season to make a trade work, some contender might think it's worth taking a shot that Bautista can slug for a couple months for them. It shouldn't cost too much to acquire him.
Jul 21 - 10:37 AM

Kris Bryant (finger) is not in the Cubs' lineup Friday.

Bryant managed to avoid a major injury when he hurt his left pinkie on a head-first slide Wednesday, but he remains sore. Javy Baez is filling in at third base.
