Diamondbacks optioned OF Alfredo Marte to Triple-A Reno.

Marte has hit .258 with a .710 OPS in 16 games this season for the Snakes. The 25-year-old outfielder will likely get another look before the summer is over.

Chris Davis is out Tuesday because of an illness.

Davis should be fine after a day or two of rest. Steve Pearce is at first base and Delmon Young is serving as the Orioles' DH on Tuesday night versus the Angels.
Jul 29 - 4:24 PM

Mike Napoli has some swelling in one of his fingers.

It's the reason he's out of the Red Sox starting lineup for the second time in three games. Mike Carp, who's thought to be available via trade, is starting at first base for Boston on Tuesday against the Blue Jays.
Jul 29 - 4:20 PM

Matt Guerrier has elected to become a free agent.

Guerrier was pushed off the Twins' 40-man roster on July 23 and refused an assignment to Triple-A Rochester after passing through waivers unclaimed. The 35-year-old right-hander will try to find a spot in a major league bullpen. He had a 3.86 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 12/10 K/BB ratio in 28 innings of relief for Minnesota.
Jul 29 - 4:12 PM

Padres activated SS Everth Cabrera from the 15-day disabled list.

Cabrera wound up missing close to four weeks with a left hamstring strain. The speedy shortstop has posted a hideous .218/.256/.290 batting line in 80 games this year and he's just 13-for-20 in stolen base attempts.
Jul 29 - 4:10 PM

Padres designated LHP Jason Lane for assignment.

Lane tossed six-plus innings of one-run ball in his first major league start Monday afternoon against the Braves, but he didn't figure into the San Diego rotation going forward. The former outfielder could draw interest on waivers as a left-handed reliever.
Jul 29 - 4:08 PM

Michael Saunders will take on-field batting practice Tuesday for the first time since straining his oblique.

If all goes smoothly, Saunders could begin a minor league rehab assignment by the end of this week. The outfielder has been on the disabled list since July 11.

Sam Fuld - OF - Twins

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Athletics are looking at numerous outfield options, including Sam Fuld of the Twins.

Fuld had a brief stint with the Athletics earlier this season and the club is looking for some outfield depth given the health of Coco Crisp (neck) and Craig Gentry (hand). The 32-year-old has played well since joining the Twins, but it likely wouldn't take much to acquire him.
