Henderson Alvarez threw the fifth no-hitter in Marlins history in Sunday's 1-0 victory against the Tigers.

In one of the strangest no-hitters ever thrown, Alvarez was in the on-deck circle in the bottom of the ninth inning when Giancarlo Stanton scored on a Luke Putkonen wild pitch to end the game. Alvarez had already completed nine no-hit innings, but wouldn't have been credited with the no-hitter until Miami won the game. The 23-year-old right-hander, who struck out four and walked one, required only 99 pitches to complete nine frames and would have been given an opportunity to work the 10th if Putkonen hadn't bounced a pitch. The third no-no of 2013 sends Alvarez into the off-season having gone 5-6 with a 3.59 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 57/27 K/BB ratio over 102 2/3 innings.

Angels acquired OF/DH David DeJesus from the Rays in exchange for RHP Eduar Lopez.

The Angels got Shane Victorino on Monday and have now picked up DeJesus and are slated to acquire David Murphy on Tuesday. DeJesus has faded after a nice start to the season, hitting .259/.323/.375 with five homers over 257 plate appearances. He should see a decent amount of time in the designated hitter spot and possibly in left field.

Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Angels are close to acquiring David Murphy from the Indians.

Murphy was a late scratch from the Tribe's lineup Tuesday and now we know why. While it won't be a headline-grabbing move, Murphy should be a nice upgrade for the Angels in left field, as he's batting .296/.344/.437 this season and has always been a pretty good hitter versus righties. He should form a platoon with Shane Victorino and spell the end of Matt Joyce's days in Anaheim.

Ryan Braun (back) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Tuesday.

It's the second straight game he's missed with lower back tightness. Braun is considered day-to-day. Gerardo Parra is in right field Tuesday, with Khris Davis covering left.

Major League Baseball has suspended RHP Jenrry Mejia 162 games for a second positive PED test.

Mejia tested positive for Stanozolol and Boldenone. The reliever just returned from an 80-game ban three weeks ago and inexplicably was busted again. The Mets' acquisition of Tyler Clippard looks even bigger now.
Jul 28 - 6:22 PM

Mike Trout (wrist) will undergo an MRI Tuesday.

Trout tweaked his left wrist during Sunday's game. The Angels don't seem worried at this point and think he's probably just day-to-day, but they wanted to send him for an MRI just to be safe. More should be available on his status later Tuesday.

According to FOX Sports' Jon Morosi, a trade sending Jonathan Papelbon to the Nationals has been "agreed upon."

MLB.com's Todd Zolecki says the Phillies will receive pitching prospect Nick Pivetta in the deal. Papelbon is expected to take over as the Nationals' closer, pushing Drew Storen into a setup role. There should be something more official shortly.

Nationals activated 1B Ryan Zimmerman from the 15-day disabled list.

Zimmerman missed over a month and a half with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. He went 1-for-15 on his rehab assignment and is batting just .209/.265/.346 in 234 plate appearances this season for the Nationals.
Jul 28 - 4:38 PM

Nationals activated OF Jayson Werth from the 60-day disabled list.

Werth is in the Nationals' starting lineup on Tuesday night for the first time since mid-May. He missed over two months with a pair of small fractures in his left wrist. The veteran outfielder hit well on his lengthy minor league rehab assignment and should be safe for immediate activation in fantasy leagues.
Jul 28 - 4:36 PM

Randal Grichuk (groin) is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup again on Tuesday night.

Grichuk is still nursing a groin injury, though an MRI taken Monday showed nothing serious. Peter Bourjos will start in center field against the Reds and Mike Leake.
Jul 28 - 4:34 PM

Yadier Molina (illness) is back in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Reds.

Molina made an early exit from Monday's game because he wasn't feeling well. It obviously wasn't anything major. He is batting fifth versus righty Mike Leake.
Jul 28 - 4:32 PM

Royals designated RHP Joe Blanton for assignment.

The move clears a 40-man roster spot for Johnny Cueto. Blanton had a 3.89 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 40/7 K/BB ratio in 41 2/3 innings (four starts, 11 relief appearances) this season for Kansas City. He is 34 years old but will probably draw interest on waivers.
