Brad Ziegler (flu) remains unavailable Wednesday.
And he won't fly on the team charter to the West Coast after Wednesday's game, though the Red Sox are hoping he can make that trip on his own Friday. Ziegler has been fighting a bad case of the flu, so the Red Sox are keeping him away from their other players.
Athletics recalled INF Joey Wendle from Triple-A Nashville.
Wendle was hitting .279/.324/.452 with 12 home runs and 14 stolen bases through 125 games this season at the Triple-A level. The 26-year-old probably won't play enough in Oakland to carry fantasy value.
Athletics acquired LHP Colt Hynes from the Indians for OF Coco Crisp.
Hynes has posted a 3.99 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and 52/9 K/BB ratio in 47 1/3 innings this season between four different minor league clubs. The 31-year-old southpaw holds a brutal 8.55 ERA in 27 career major league appearances.
Indians acquired OF Coco Crisp from the Athletics for LHP Colt Hynes.
The deal was agreed to on Tuesday night and formally announced Wednesday -- the deadline for waiver trades. Crisp has batted just .234/.299/.399 with 11 home runs and seven stolen bases in 102 games this season, but he gives the Indians some much-needed outfield depth for the stretch run. Michael Brantley (shoulder) is done for the year and Abraham Almonte is not eligible for the postseason following his February PED suspension. Crisp, 36, began his major league career with Cleveland back in 2002. He'll be a free agent this winter.
Melky Cabrera is in the White Sox starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon versus the Tigers.
Melky has been dealing with a flu-like illness since the weekend and made an early exit from Tuesday night's game due to dehydration. He was given IV fluids and is apparently feeling much better 12 hours later.
