Zack Godley has been moved to the bullpen.

That's how the Diamondbacks will clear a spot for Shelby Miller, who is set to return to the rotation Wednesday against the Giants. Godley, 26, has a 6.71 ERA and 1.51 WHIP in nine starts and seven relief appearances this season at the major league level.

Dodgers recalled RHP Casey Fien from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Fien had a 3.80 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 20/6 K/BB ratio in 23 2/3 innings earlier this season out of the Los Angeles bullpen. He'll return to a middle relief role.
Aug 30 - 8:12 PM

Dodgers optioned RHP Pedro Baez to Double-A Tulsa.

Baez will be back when Tulsa's season comes to a close later this week. The right-hander owns a 3.61 ERA in 62 1/3 innings this year out of the Dodgers' bullpen.
Aug 30 - 8:11 PM

Homer Bailey (biceps) will not take his next turn in the Reds' rotation.

But the hope is he won't be out much longer than that. Bailey allowed four runs on five hits in just one inning of work Sunday against the Diamondbacks and was diagnosed later that day with right biceps tendinitis. He has a 6.65 ERA through six starts in his return from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery.

Jake Peavy received a cortisone shot for his lower back strain on Tuesday.

That'll keep him shut down for the next couple of days, but it should ultimately expedite his recovery. Peavy landed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday. He's aiming to return around mid-September.
Aug 30 - 7:54 PM

Pirates designated LHP Kyle Lobstein for assignment.

The move clears a 40-man roster spot for Kelvin Marte, who joined the Pirates' bullpen in a corresponding move. Lobstein, 27, had a 3.96 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and 15/12 K/BB ratio in 25 innings of relief this season with the Pirates. He was demoted to Triple-A on July 7.
Aug 30 - 7:49 PM

Pirates optioned LHP Steven Brault to Low-A Bristol.

Brault will return to the Pirates' active roster when Bristol's season ends on Friday. The 24-year-old left-hander owns a 3.86 ERA and 12/7 K/BB ratio in 14 innings (three starts) this season with Pittsburgh.
Aug 30 - 7:47 PM

Pirates optioned RHP Jameson Taillon to Low-A Bristol.

This is really just a procedural move -- Taillon can and will return to the majors when Bristol's season ends this Friday. The young right-hander boasts a 3.39 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 63/12 K/BB ratio over his first 77 innings (13 starts) at the big league level.
Aug 30 - 7:45 PM

Pirates purchased the contract of LHP Kelvin Marte from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Marte has registered a 3.67 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 57/21 K/BB ratio in 73 2/3 innings this season at the Triple-A level. He will presumably work in middle relief.
Aug 30 - 7:42 PM

Pirates recalled INF/OF Alen Hanson from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Hanson will be available off the Pirates' bench on Tuesday night against the Cubs. The versatile 23-year-old has batted .266/.318/.389 with eight home runs and 36 stolen bases in 110 games this season at Triple-A.
Aug 30 - 7:40 PM

Greg Garcia is day-to-day with knee soreness.

Garcia is not in the Cardinals' lineup Tuesday and the discomfort could limit his ability to play shortstop over the next few days or even weeks. Jedd Gyorko is at short for St. Louis on Tuesday night in Milwaukee.
Aug 30 - 7:31 PM

Brandon McCarthy (hip) worked a five-inning simulated game on Tuesday.

McCarthy remains without a timetable for activation, but he is obviously getting pretty close. The right-hander landed on the disabled list August 13 with stiffness on the right side of his hip. He holds a 3.63 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 38/24 K/BB ratio in 34 2/3 innings (eight starts) this season with Los Angeles.
Aug 30 - 7:26 PM

Brett Anderson (blister) tossed a four-inning simulated game on Tuesday afternoon.

Anderson has been on the disabled list since August 23 with a blister on his left index finger. He has a ridiculous 24.75 ERA and 4.25 WHIP in two starts this season with the Dodgers and can go on being ignored in standard fantasy leagues when he is activated, probably in about two weeks.
Aug 30 - 7:24 PM

Scott Kazmir (neck) threw a five-inning simulated game on Tuesday.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said afterward that Kazmir is closer to returning than Brandon McCarthy and Brett Anderson but couldn't offer up an exact timetable for any of the injured starting pitchers. Kazmir has been out since August 23 with neck inflammation.
Aug 30 - 7:20 PM

Corey Seager (wrist) is expected to return to the Dodgers' lineup on Wednesday.

Seager is sitting out Tuesday after getting struck by two pitches -- one off his left wrist -- on Monday night. X-rays came back negative on the National League Rookie of the Year frontrunner. Charlie Culberson is starting at shortstop for the Dodgers on Tuesday in Colorado.
