Rays recalled LHP Matt Moore from Triple-A Durham.

Moore was demoted about a month ago after posting an 8.78 ERA over six starts in his return from Tommy John surgery. The results have been much better at the Triple-A level, with a 3.30 ERA and 43/8 K/BB ratio in 30 innings across five starts. He could rejoin the Rays' rotation this weekend against the Yankees.

Rays recalled OF Mikie Mahtook from Triple-A Durham.

Mahtook, 25, has batted .189/.268/.459 with three home runs and six RBI in 42 plate appearances at the major league level this season. The 2011 first-rounder will provide some outfield depth down the stretch.
Sep 1 - 9:22 AM

Rays recalled 1B/OF Richie Shaffer from Triple-A Durham.

Shaffer went 5-for-19 with two solo home runs and 10 strikeouts during his first stint in the majors in August. He deserves another look, though it's unclear if he'll get another playing time to be fantasy relevant.
Sep 1 - 9:18 AM

Yankees purchased the contract of LHP James Pazos from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Pazos has had an excellent season between Double- and Triple-A, posting a 1.27 ERA and 49/15 K/BB ratio in 42 2/3 innings. The 24-year-old could get a look in certain matchups.
Sep 1 - 8:53 AM

Yankees purchased the contract of OF Rico Noel from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Noel latched on with the Yankees after being released by the Padres back in June. The 29-year-old is likely to function strictly as a pinch-runner. He has 283 steals over 611 minor league games.
Sep 1 - 8:50 AM

Yankees purchased the contract of C Austin Romine from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Romine was removed from the 40-man roster back in April, but the Yankees needed a third catcher and an injury to Gary Sanchez opened the door for his return. The 26-year-old was batting .260/.311/.379 with seven home runs and 49 RBI over 92 games in Triple-A this season.
Sep 1 - 8:48 AM

Yankees recalled RHP Caleb Cotham from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Cotham appeared in two games with the Yankees earlier this season and has posted a 2.21 ERA and 61/13 K/BB ratio in 57 innings between Double- and Triple-A. The 27-year-old will provide some depth in a middle relief role.
Sep 1 - 8:45 AM

Yankees recalled INF/OF Jose Pirela from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The 25-year-old Pirela has struggled in limited opportunities with the Yankees this season, batting .212/.232/.303 over 70 plate appearances. However, he'll provide some speed and versatility off the bench down the stretch.
Sep 1 - 8:41 AM

Yankees recalled 2B Robert Refsnyder from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Refsnyder, who got a cup of coffee with the Yankees back in July, could be an option to take away some playing time from Brendan Ryan. The 24-year-old hit .271/.359/.402 with nine home runs, 56 RBI, and 12 stolen bases over 117 games in Triple-A this season.
Sep 1 - 8:38 AM

Yankees purchased the contract of RHP Andrew Bailey from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

It's been a long road back for Bailey, who hasn't appeared in the majors since July 12, 2013 due to shoulder issues. Now 31 years old, the former All-Star and AL Rookie of the Year posted a 1.35 ERA and 30/9 K/BB ratio in 26 2/3 innings between Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season. It was enough to earn his way back to the big leagues.
Sep 1 - 8:35 AM

Yankees activated INF/OF Dustin Ackley from the 15-day disabled list.

Ackley was acquired from the Mariners at the trade deadline, but he appeared in just two games prior to going down with a right lumbar strain about a month ago. He'll function in a utility role down the stretch.
Sep 1 - 8:29 AM

Marlon Byrd went 2-for-6 with a double and three RBI, but the Giants suffered a 14-inning, 5-4 loss to the Dodgers on Monday.

Byrd singled and knocked in two runs to break a 1-1 tie in the third inning, then added a game-tying RBI double in the eighth inning. It would be the last run either team would score until the Dodgers broke through in the 14th. Byrd, since joining the Giants, is batting .286 (12-for-42) with four doubles, a triple, three home runs, and 17 RBI.
Sep 1 - 3:53 AM

Buster Posey went 4-for-7 but the Giants were defeated in 14 innings by the Dodgers on Monday.

All four hits were singles, but the Giants couldn't capitalize on any of them. Posey is batting a lusty .321/.377/.475 with 16 home runs and 80 RBI on the season.
Sep 1 - 3:50 AM

Jake Peavy went 5 2/3 innings, yielding four runs in a no-decision as the Giants lost in 14 innings to the Dodgers on Monday.

Peavy had limited the Dodgers to only one run through five innings, but served up a game-tying two-run home run to Adrian Gonzalez, then a go-ahead solo home run to Andre Ethier in the sixth. He was pulled with two outs in the frame. In total, he gave up six hits, walked none, and struck out four. Peavy has been solid in 11 starts since returning from the disabled list, posting a 3.80 ERA. He'll face the Rockies at Coors Field in his next outing.
Sep 1 - 3:49 AM

Brett Anderson got a no-decision, allowing three runs in five innings, in Monday's 14-inning win against the Giants.

Anderson allowed all three runs in the third inning, when the Giants used four singles and a walk to take a 3-1 lead. The lefty, overall, gave up six hits and a walk while striking out only one. Anderson now has a 3.43 ERA with a 1.31 WHIP and a 100/40 K/BB ratio over 152 1/3 innings. He'll take the mound at Petco Park to oppose the Padres next.
