Marlins sent LHP Chris Reed outright to Triple-A New Orleans.
He's now off the 40-man roster. A former first-round pick, Reed made a full-time move to reliever this season but responded with a 5.20 ERA between Double- and Triple-A.
Blue Jays sent RHP Donn Roach outright to Triple-A Buffalo.
Roach had been designated for assignment, but he's cleared waivers and will remain in the organization. He posted a 3.34 ERA at the Triple-A level this season but struck out only 53 over 143 innings.
Nelson Cruz probably won't play Sunday after injuring a quad in extra innings Saturday.
That could open the door for Franklin Gutierrez or Jesus Montero to get a start against a right-hander.
Marcus Semien hit a two-run homer in the top of the 13th to help the A's beat the Mariners 7-5 on Saturday.
Well, Semien is going to end up finishing the season with more RBI (45) than errors (35), so that's a good thing. Since he's shown decent range at shortstop and he's been pretty decent offensively with no one on base, the A's will probably keep him around as a starter next year. Probably. He still has some fantasy upside, particularly if he can get his OBP up and establish himself as a top-of-the-order guy.
Sean Nolin allowed three runs over five innings Saturday in a no-decision against the A's.
Nolin's debut this year was delayed by shoulder problems, but he was healthy enough to get a chance last month and he ended up with a 5.28 ERA in six starts. Particularly unimpressive was his 15/12 K/BB ratio in 29 innings. Maybe he'll be stronger next year, but he probably won't be much of a threat to make the A's out of spring training.
