Brad Ausmus was officially announced as the Tigers new manager at a press conference on Sunday.

Ausmus receives a three-year deal, plus a club option for a fourth season. Financial details of the contract were not disclosed. He becomes the 37th manager in the history of the Detroit Tigers. While the 44-year-old former catcher has no professional managerial experience, he's widely respected around baseball and garnered serious attention from several teams this offseason, also interviewing for the Cubs and Mariners managerial vacancies. He inherits a Tigers team that has won three consecutive division titles, and should be among the favorites to win the American League pennant in 2014.

Rashad Crawford is the fourth player headed to the Yankees in the Aroldis Chapman trade.

The other three are shortstop prospect Gleyber Torres, outfielder prospect Billy McKinney, and right-hander Adam Warren. Crawford, 22, has batted .255/.327/.386 with three home runs and 22 stolen bases in 83 games this season at High-A Myrtle Beach. He was an 11th-round pick in 2012. This trade should be finalized within the hour.

Astros purchased the contract of INF Alex Bregman from Triple-A Fresno.

Bregman will join the Astros ahead of Monday night's series opener against the visiting Yankees. The 22-year-old has been one of the best hitters in the minors this season, boasting a .306/.406/.580 batting line with 20 home runs and 61 RBI in 80 games between Double-A and Triple-A. He can also steal bases. Bregman should see everyday-like action between third base and left field and needs to be owned in all standard fantasy leagues.

According to FOX Sports' Jon Morosi, the Rangers are expressing interest in Vincent Velasquez.

Velasquez is a 24-year-old with five years of contractual control and he's been having a very good season for Philadelphia, so the asking price is going to be astronomical. The right-hander holds a 3.34 ERA and 103 strikeouts in 91 2/3 innings this year. Texas has been connected to just about every pitcher in baseball.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Yankees and Cubs have agreed to an Aroldis Chapman trade.

New York will get shortstop prospect Gleyber Torres, outfield prospect Billy McKinney, right-hander Adam Warren, and one other player. The trade feels like a huge score for the Yankees, but this is the go-for-it of all go-for-its with the Cubs, who haven't won a World Series title since 1908. Chapman will take over at closer in Chicago, with Hector Rondon shifting to a setup role. The flame-throwing 28-year-old left-hander owns a 2.16 ERA and 590 strikeouts in 350 1/3 career major league innings.

Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports the Marlins have interest in Seattle starter Wade Miley.

Miley struggled in 2014 with the Red Sox and has been even worse since the offseason trade that sent him to the Mariners. Miami, a half-game up on the second Wild Card, should probably shoot a little higher. The 29-year-old left-hander is sitting on a 5.23 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and 73/33 K/BB ratio through 105 innings this season, and he's owed $8.97 million in 2017.

Rival executives tell ESPN's Buster Olney that the Yankees have been pushing an Ivan Nova trade.

Nova is due to become a free agent after the 2016 season and doesn't seem like a qualifying offer candidate, so the Yankees might as well try to get something out of him. The 29-year-old right-hander has pitched very well in his last two starts but owns a pedestrian 4.65 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 72/22 K/BB ratio in 93 innings overall this season. Maybe a move to the National League would work.

Indians outfield prospect Bradley Zimmer has been promoted from Double-A Akron to Triple-A Columbus.

Fellow top outfield prospect Clint Frazier will join him on the move. Zimmer, 23, was slashing .252/.370/.472 with 14 home runs, 53 RBI, 31 stolen bases, and 57 runs scored through 92 games this season at the Double-A level. He needs to improve his overall plate discipline, but those counting stats are eye-popping to any fantasy baseball enthusiast. Zimmer was the 21st overall pick in 2014 out of the University of San Francisco. He should make his major league debut later this summer.
Jul 25 - 6:37 AM

According to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, Angels closer Huston Street is among the Giants' trade targets leading up to the August 1 deadline.

He's probably more of a backup plan, as the Giants have been linked to a number of other relievers having far better seasons. Street, 32, owns a rough 5.03 ERA and 1.93 WHIP in 19 2/3 innings this year out of the Anaheim bullpen. He has missed time with oblique and hamstring injuries. The right-hander is under contract for $9 million in 2017 and carries a $10 million club option for 2018.

Adrian Gonzalez blasted a grand slam in the first inning on Sunday, powering the Dodgers to a 9-6 victory over the Cardinals in St. Louis.

The Dodgers jumped on rookie right-hander Mike Mayers right out of the gate, with a pair of singles and a walk before Gonzalez unloaded on a towering grand slam to center field. He added a pair of singles, including a run-scoring knock in the second inning, finishing the night 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and four RBI. He's now hitting .284/.360/.412 with nine homers and 51 RBI.

The Rockies announced Sunday that top prospect David Dahl will be recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday.

The club gets the benefit of having a designated hitter for their series in Baltimore to begin the week, so they'll take a look at the sweet-swinging outfielder. With Carlos Gonzalez and Charlie Blackmon on the trade block, Dahl could be up with the big league club to stay. The 22-year-old is hitting .314/.394/.569 with 18 homers, 61 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 92 games between Double-A Hartford and Triple-A Albuquerque this season. He's immediately an interesting commodity in all mixed leagues.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers have expressed interest in acquiring veteran right-hander Edinson Volquez from the Royals.

Grant notes that the entire Rangers brass in charge of player personnel was on hand for Volquez's start on Sunday and the club has admitted that they're seeking a major upgrade to their rotation. The Royals haven't yet decided if they'll be buyers or sellers at next week's trade deadline. The right-hander's next start is conveniently against the Rangers in Arlington on Friday, so all he may need to do is change dugouts if a deal gets consummated.
