Marlins activated INF Jeff Baker from the 15-day disabled list; released hmi.

Baker is apparently over his intercostal strain but is now looking for a new job. The 34-year-old has hit only .208/.288/.375 this season, but he's been a big weapon versus lefties in the past so someone figures to take a shot on him.

Twins acquired RHP Kevin Jepsen from the Rays for RHP Chih-Wei Hu and RHP Alexis Tapia.

Jepsen has pretty much the same ERA this year as last (2.81 vs. 2.63), but it's come with weaker peripherals. Last year for the Angels, he had a 75/23 K/BB ratio in 65 innings. This year, he has a 34/20 K/BB ratio in 41 2/3 innings. The Twins will try him in a setup role and hope for the best, but it'd be no surprise to see him start to fade.

Rays acquire RHP Chih-Wei Hu and RHP Alexis Tapia from the Twins for RHP Kevin Jepsen.

Hu, a 21-year-old from Taiwan, has been one of the Florida State League's best pitchers this year, amassing a 2.44 ERA and a 73/19 K/BB ratio in 84 2/3 innings. He doesn't throw very hard and his palmball/changeup is his best pitch, so it will be interesting to see how he performs at higher levels. Tapia a 19-year-old in Rookie ball and isn't viewed as a top prospect.

ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Rockies have told teams they will revisit trading Carlos Gonzalez next month or over the winter.

They evidently haven't been able to find a robust enough market for CarGo this month. Gonzalez is one of the hottest hitters in baseball with a .431/.481/.958 batting line and 11 homers over his last 18 games.

Yankees sent LHP Chris Capuano outright to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

He was removed from the 40-man roster earlier this week. Capuano will stick around for depth.
Jul 31 - 2:26 PM

Yankees activated OF Slade Heathcott from the 60-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Heathcott is over his quad injury but is now back in the minors as depth. He's hit .353/.353/.588 in six games for the Yankees this season.
Jul 31 - 2:24 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mets are "making a push" for Yoenis Cespedes.

The Mets had a deal in place for Carlos Gomez and were close on Jay Bruce, only to see both potential trades fall apart. It appears they've moved their focus to Cespedes as they seek some offensive help. It's unclear at this point what the Mets would have to give up.
Jul 31 - 2:20 PM

Yankees designated first baseman-outfielder Garrett Jones for assignment.

The move makes room for Dustin Ackley on the roster. The Yankees thought they'd have more need for Jones this year, but who would have guessed Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez would be this healthy and productive? Jones hit just .215/.257/.361 with five homers in 144 at-bats in his lesser role. He might land another bench gig now, but his major league career doesn't figure to last a whole lot longer.
