Indians recalled INF Lonnie Chisenhall from Triple-A Columbus.

With Brandon Moss shipped out of town, Chisenhall could see some action in the corner outfield, where he had been working in the minors. Unless he finds everyday at-bats though, his fantasy value is limited to AL-only formats.

Justin Upton cracked a go-ahead three-run home run in the ninth inning of Thursday afternoon's 8-7 win over the Mets.

This will go down as one of the stranger games of the season. The Mets held a 7-1 lead after six innings. This advantage was dropped to two runs after Derek Norris hit a grand slam in the seventh inning. And then the ninth inning happened. Mets closer Jeurys Familia recorded the first two outs of the inning easily enough, at which point, a string of storms hit and delayed the game for 44 minutes. You can probably guess what happened next. Familia returned to the game after the long delay, allowed two singles, then served up a three-run homer to Upton to give the Padres an 8-7 lead. This would hold as the final score, though not before another delay of over an hour. The baseball deities must have really wanted to enjoy this epic collapse. Upton's name has been swirling in trade rumors for weeks, but he's still with the Padres and it's not a given that he'll be moved. He's struggled over the last two months, but has now homered twice and driven in six in his last two games.

Athletics released OF Day an Viciedo.

The veteran slugger opted out of his deal and was granted his release from the Athletics. He'll look to latch on elsewhere on a minor league pact.

Derek Norris hit a grand slam and finished a perfect 5-for-5 in Thursday afternoon's 8-7 win over the Mets.

Norris was integral to the Padres' comeback operation. Down 7-1 in the seventh inning, he stepped up with the bases loaded and smashed a grand slam off of Mets reliever Hansel Robles. That's not all. Following a rain delay of 44 minutes, the catcher singled with two outs in the ninth inning and would come around to score on a three-run homer by Justin Upton that gave the Padres the lead and win over the reeling Mets. Norris is slashing .238/.283/.407 with 12 homers and 49 RBI this season.

Curtis Granderson went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in Thursday afternoon's loss to the Padres.

Granderson's three-run tater off of Padres starter Andrew Cashner in the fifth inning pushed the Met advantage to 4-0. They would ultimately lose 8-7 after blowing a six-run lead. The homer was Granderson's 16th of the season. He also contributed a double in the contest. While he's hitting a somewhat pedestrian .255/.350/.440, he's on track to finish with 20+ home runs for the eighth time in his career.
Jul 30 - 6:39 PM

Making his second appearance with the Mets this season, newly acquired reliever Tyler Clippard allowed a hit and no runs over his inning of work.

Clippard entered in the eighth inning with the Mets holding a 7-5 lead. Jedd Gyorko burned him for a double with one out, but the new Metropolitan was able to retire the next two batters without incident. Closer Jeurys Familia would enter an inning later and blow his third straight save. Familia's probably still got wiggle room, but there can't be much at this point. Clippard could see save opportunities if the struggles continue. He held a 2.97 ERA and 38/21 K/BB ratio in 38 2/3 innings prior to jumping over from the A's to the Mets.

Jonathan Niese tossed a solid outing in a Thursday afternoon no-decision against the Padres, allowing one run on six hits over six innings.

Niese left the game holding a 7-1 lead after six innings. The bullpen would allow a whopping seven runs to lose said advantage, but Niese deserved better than an ND. He surrendered an RBI single to Matt Kemp in his final inning of work, but otherwise kept the Padres from touching home plate. After holding a 4.42 ERA on May 30, he's managed to work that down to a 3.63 mark through strong work in June and July. His 1.37 WHIP remains a touch on the high side and as the owner of an 80/36 K/BB ratio over 121 1/3 innings, the strikeouts aren't coming at a mind-blowing pace, but he holds value in deeper NL-only formats. A road date with the Marlins is up next on the lefty's schedule.
Jul 30 - 6:35 PM

Andrew Cashner struggled mightily at times in a no-decision against the Mets on Thursday afternoon, yielding seven runs (five earned) on six hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Cashner struck out three and walked two in the contest. The Mets scored a solitary run against him in the first inning on a Daniel Murphy sacrifice fly, then brought home three more runs in the fifth, all on a Curtis Granderson home run. They would drive him from the game in the following frame, but he wiggled off the hook and picked up a no-decision, thanks to the combustive properties of the Mets' bullpen. The 28-year-old right-hander holds decent, if unspectacular, numbers overall, including a 4.13 ERA and 1.32 WHIP. Assuming he doesn't move at the trade deadline, Cashner's scheduled to face the Brewers in a road outing next time he toes the rubber.
