Indians purchased the contract of OF Jerry Sands from Triple-A Columbus.
Sands is back on the 40-man roster for the third time this season. He'll provide outfield depth.
Indians sent RHP Toru Murata outright to Triple-A Columbus.
Murata was knocked around in his major league debut last month. The 30-year-old remains in the organization but probably won't get another shot in the big leagues.
Jordan Walden (biceps) will not come off the disabled list early next week as hoped.
Walden hasn't had a setback, but rather the Cardinals think he just needs to build up more arm strength. Their acquisition of Jonathan Broxton on Friday no doubt was related to Walden's stalled return.
Tigers acquired RHPs Luis Cessa and Michael Fulmer from the Mets in exchange for OF Yoenis Cespedes.
Cessa, 23, holds a 3.98 ERA with 85 strikeouts over 101 2/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A this season. The righty was top ranked among the Mets' top 30 prospect before the season by Baseball America.
Tigers acquired RHPs Michael Fulmer and Luis Cessa from the Mets in exchange for OF Yoenis Cespedes.
Fulmer is the prize here, as he's bounced back from a disappointing 2014 with a strong 2015, posting a 2.03 ERA while striking out a batter per inning between High- and Double-A. He has a shot to be a nice mid-rotation starter for the Tigers.
Mets acquired OF Yoenis Cespedes from the Tigers in exchange for RHPs Michael Fulmer and Luis Cessa.
The Mets whiffed on Carlos Gomez and Jay Bruce but found the bat they were looking for in Cespedes. He'll patrol left field in New York and should provide a much-needed jolt to the Mets' lineup.
Angels recalled RHP Drew Rucinski from Triple-A Salt Lake.
Rucinski has allowed four runs over 4 2/3 relief frames with the big club this season. He'll work in middle relief.
Angels placed LHP C.J. Wilson on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 29, with left elbow inflammation.
Wilson had fluid drained from the elbow earlier this season and he's now having trouble with it again. It doesn't appear he has any structural issues, so the lefty should be back at some point in August. Jered Weaver (hip) will take his rotation spot.
