Diamondbacks activated C Jordan Pacheco from the 15-day disabled list.

Pacheco missed over a month with tendinitis in his right shoulder. He was 3-for-8 as a pinch-hitter for the Diamondbacks before the tendinitis put him on the shelf.

Diamondbacks released 1B/OF Nick Evans.

Evans has signed a deal with Japan's Rakuten Golden Eagles. The 28-year-old first baseman and corner outfielder tallied two home runs, two doubles, and seven RBI in 18 games this season with the Diamondbacks.

Craig Kimbrel collected his 32nd save of the season in dominant fashion Monday versus the Padres.

Kimbrel struck out all three batters he faced in the top of the ninth inning, needing only 13 pitches. Atlanta's closer has a ridiculous 1.90 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, and 74/17 K/BB ratio in 42 2/3 total frames this year.

Evan Gattis went 3-for-4 with two RBI in the Braves' defeat of the Padres on Monday afternoon.

Gattis opened the game's scoring with a solo shot in the bottom of the seventh inning off San Diego starter Jason Lane and then drove in Justin Upton with an RBI single in the bottom of the eighth. He also had one another single, and is now batting .292/.350/.556 with 17 homers and 42 RBI in 69 games this season.

Dodgers acquired 2B Darwin Barney from the Cubs for a player to be named later.

The Cubs designated Barney for assignment last week, handing second base duties to Arismendy Alcantara and Emilio Bonifacio. Barney had a rough .244/.290/.335 batting line in parts of five seasons with Chicago, but he's an elite defender at second base.

Rays activated RHP Joel Peralta from the 15-day disabled list.

Peralta was out for 15 days after contracting the chikungunya virus while vacationing in the Dominican Republic over the All-Star break. The right-hander threw a scoreless rehab inning on Saturday in High-A ball.
Jul 28 - 2:53 PM

Rays designated LHP Erik Bedard for assignment.

Bedard registered a 4.76 ERA and 1.49 WHIP in 15 starts and two relief appearances for Tampa Bay. The 35-year-old southpaw was dumped Monday to open up a roster spot for Joel Peralta, who was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding roster move.
Jul 28 - 2:51 PM

Jason Lane allowed just one run over six-plus innings but took the loss Monday against the Braves.

The one run he allowed was on an Evan Gattis solo shot that led off the bottom of the seventh inning. And that was enough for Atlanta on a day that the San Diego offense managed just five total hits and zero runs. Lane was sharp in his first major league start, striking out two Braves hitters and issuing no walks. He could get another turn in the Padres' rotation soon.
