Cardinals optioned RHP Carlos Martinez to Triple-A Memphis.

He's being sent there to stretch out as a starter, which is the best thing for his development rather than being used sporadically in relief. Martinez, who holds a 4.74 ERA with 64 strikeouts over 68 1/3 innings this season, will be back in September.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss announced Friday that John Axford has been removed from his role as the team's closer.

Weiss said Friday, "I had a conversation with John a little earlier and I told him I was going to get him out of that ninth inning for a little bit and let him catch his breath". He has blown four saves in his last five appearances and has had difficulty finding the strike zone. Rafael Betancourt and Tommy Kahnle are the two most likely candidates to take over the role.

Clayton Kershaw was scratched from his scheduled start on Friday due to his hip issue.

The same ailment scratched him on Wednesday. He is now scheduled to start on Saturday after an extra day of rest. Zack Greinke will start in his place against the Angels on Friday.

Stephen Strasburg (oblique) will make another rehab start with Triple-A Syracuse on Monday.

Strasburg allowed three runs on four hits over four innings in his first rehab outing Wednesday. As long as he doesn't have a physical setback on Monday, he'll rejoin the Nationals' rotation late next week.

Pirates placed RHP A.J. Burnett on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation.

That could help to explain the Pirates acquiring J.A. Happ from the Mariners before the trade deadline, as the veteran southpaw will slide into the rotation to replace Burnett. It's unclear at the moment how much time Burnett may miss.

Robinson Cano (abdomen) remained out of the Mariners' lineup Friday.

He's likely to sit out through the weekend with a Grade 1 abdominal strain. The Mariners have brought up Ketel Marte for infield help while Cano recovers.

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.
Jul 31 - 5:35 PM

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.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Friday that Luis Severino's next start will come in the majors.

The Yankees weren't able to land a starter at the trade deadline, but part of the reason they felt comfortable passing on deals is surely that they felt good about giving Severino a shot. It's unclear what day the top prospect will debut, but he'll take Michael Pineda's (forearm) spot in the rotation. Severino is worth a shot in all fantasy leagues.
Jul 31 - 5:28 PM

Pirates acquired LHP J.A. Happ from the Mariners in exchange for RHP Adrian Sampson.

Happ holds a 4.64 ERA and 1.41 WHIP over 108 2/3 innings this season. Despite those underwhelming numbers,he'll enter the club's rotation. A.J. Burnett (elbow) is headed to the disabled list.
Jul 31 - 4:46 PM

Pirates acquired 1B/OF Michael Morse from the Dodgers in exchange for OF Jose Tabata.

Morse was designated for assignment after the Dodgers picked him up in the three-team deal with the Marlins and Braves. He's hit only .214/.277/.314 in 173 plate appearances this season but offers the Pirates an option at first base against left-handed pitching.
Jul 31 - 4:23 PM

Blue Jays acquired OF Ben Revere from the Phillies for RHP Alberto Tirado and RHP Jimmy Cordero.

The Jays got a nice complimentary piece for their outfield. Revere shouldn't start over Kevin Pillar in center, but he can fill in there on occasion. He'll probably end up platooning with Chris Colabello in left field, giving the Jays more defense there at the cost of power. His fantasy value would seem to drop some, since he could hit low in the order and play less than he might have elsewhere. Still, he remains worth using in mixed leagues. The Phillies have freed up more at-bats for Domonic Brown and Cody Asche as they try to figure out their 2016 outfield.
