Zach Walters underwent surgery Friday to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder.
The 26-year-old is expected to be cleared to resume baseball activities in 5-6 months, which means he'll surely get a late start to the 2016 season. Walters had a disappointing 2015 campaign that saw him spend most of his time at Triple-A Columbus, where he hit only .249/.310/.416 with 10 homers over 91 games.
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.
