MLB.com's William Ladson reports that Denard Span will have season-ending surgery on his left hip on Tuesday.
FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Craig Kimbrel has been claimed on revocable waivers.
Rosenthal was told by a Padres official that they have "no intention" of trading the closer. San Diego did entertain offers for Kimbrel prior to the deadline, but obviously it's not ideal to only be able to negotiate with one team. Kimbrel is owed $24 million from 2016-17 and the Padres have a $13 million club option or $1 million buyout on him for 2018.
Mariners recalled C John Hicks from Triple-A Tacoma.
The M's have decided to give Mike Zunino some much-needed time in the minors so he can try to figure things out at the plate. Hicks has batted .245/.282/.362 with six homers at Tacoma this season and should share the workload behind the dish with Jesus Sucre.
Mariners optioned C Mike Zunino to Triple-A Tacoma.
The demotion is probably long overdue. Zunino has simply been lost at the plate all season, sporting a hideous .174/.230/.300 batting line over 112 games. John Hicks has replaced him on the roster and will share the catching duties with Jesus Sucre for now.
Danny Salazar has been scratched from Friday's scheduled start against the Angels due to illness.
The Indians presumably will hope that he'll be ready to go at some point over the weekend. Trevor Bauer will start Friday in Salazar's place and will be on regular rest.
