Aaron Sanchez could get more multi-inning save chances down the stretch for the Blue Jays.
Sanchez has been dominant out of the Toronto bullpen since his July 22 promotion and Jays closer Casey Janssen is in a bit of a slump. "We're trying to maximize who [Sanchez] is," manager John Gibbons said this weekend. "So if he goes out there and he's got one inning under his belt and it's easy, we're going to ride him." Sanchez earned six outs for his first major league save Saturday against the Yankees.
Angels purchased the contract of UTIL Shawn O'Malley from Triple-A Salt Lake.
O'Malley was hitting .317/.402/.463 in 102 games this season in the Angels' minor league system and is now being rewarded with his first promotion to the majors. The 26-year-old can play all around the diamond defensively, giving the American League West-leading Halos some versatility for their bench.
Jesse Hahn is doubtful to get a start this month.
MLB.com's Corey Brock suspects that the Padres will use the rookie right-hander in a long relief role the rest of the way. Hahn has registered 114 1/3 innings this season between the minors and majors -- well above the 69 innings he threw in 2013. San Diego is being extra careful with the 25-year-old. Dump him in redraft leagues.
Braves recalled OF Joey Terdoslavich from Triple-A Gwinnett.
Terdoslavich was hitting .256/.337/.385 in 569 plate appearances this season at the Triple-A level. The 25-year-old can play first base and both corner outfield spots but probably won't get much playing time in Atlanta.
Braves recalled OF Jose Constanza from Triple-A Gwinnett.
Constanza will operate as outfield depth for the Braves over the final month of the regular season. He is a .278/.322/.329 career hitter in 100 major league games.
