Bruce Levine of 670thescore.com reports that the Mets have acquired Yoenis Cespedes from the Tigers.
The Tigers will receive two pitching prospects in return but will not get Zack Wheeler. Detroit pretty much had to deal Cespedes, as they're in seller mode and can't make him a qualifying offer after the season. He'll provide some much-needed thump to the Mets' lineup.
Mariners recalled INF Ketel Marte from Triple-A Tacoma.
Just 21, Marte has hit .314/.359/.410 with 20 steals at Tacoma this season. He'll likely handle second base for a while with Robinson Cano (abdomen) banged up.
Mariners recalled 1B/DH Jesus Montero from Triple-A Tacoma.
Montero picked up three hits in 10 at-bats in an earlier stint with the M's. He should see some time at first base and in the designated hitter spot.
Braves activated RHP Williams Perez from the 15-day disabled list.
He'll rejoin the rotation on Friday in Philadelphia. Perez missed the last month of action with a bruised foot.
Athletics acquired LHP Felix Doubront from the Blue Jays in exchange for cash considerations.
Doubront had been designated for assignment earlier this week. He's been added to the major league roster, though it's unclear if he'll be used as a starter or reliever.
