Date Player
7/28/2015 Troy Tulowitzki, Col, SS
Tulowitzki has been traded to Toronto, according to multiple reports on social media.

Analysis: Reports are surfacing that the Rockies legend will go to the Blue Jays for Jose Reyes and minor leaguers so monitor the situation closely.
7/27/2015 Dallas Beeler, ChC, P
Beeler will start Tuesday against Colorado.

Analysis: Beeler has started twice for the Cubs this season and has no record with a 6.43 ERA.
7/27/2015 Edwin Jackson, ChC, P
The Cubs released Jackson on Monday, one week after he was designated for assignment.

Analysis: Jackson, 31, was 2-1 with a 3.19 ERA in 23 relief appearances for the Cubs this season. Signed to a four-year deal worth $52 million before the 2013 season, Jackson struggled badly over his first two years with the Cubs, going 14-33 with a 5.58 ERA and was moved to the bullpen near the end of last season.
7/27/2015 Fernando Rodney, Sea, P
Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon thinks struggling reliever Fernando Rodney is tipping his pitches, causing some of his problems. McClendon said before Monday's series opener with Arizona that his staff has been watching tape and there are some ''dramatic'' things that stand out and may have helped batters know what pitch is coming from the right-hander.

Analysis: Rodney was pulled from the closer role in early June, but his struggles have continued. He has given up at least one earned run in six of his last eight appearances. He allowed Mark Teixeira's winning homer in the eighth inning on July 19 against the Yankees, then gave up a tying, two-run homer in the eighth inning of last Saturday's 8-6 loss to Toronto. You should not use him in critical fantasy action.
7/27/2015 Tyler Clippard, NYM, P
In their second trade in four days, the Mets have acquired Clippard from the Oakland Athletics for minor league pitcher Casey Meisner in a swap of right-handers that increases New York's payroll by a little more than $2 million.

Analysis: The 30-year-old Clippard, who is eligible for free agency after this season, is 1-3 with a 2.79 ERA and 17 saves in 21 chances. The A's obtained him from Washington in January.
7/27/2015 Xander Bogaerts, Bos, SS
David Ortiz, who had two three-run homers and an RBI single, and Bogaerts each had four of the season-high 20 hits by the Red Sox on Sunday.

Analysis: Bogaerts has two four-hit games while batting .405 in 20 games this month.
7/27/2015 David Ortiz, Bos, DH
Ortiz homered twice and drove in a career-high seven runs to lead the Boston Red Sox to an 11-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday night.

Analysis: Big Papi is batting .348 with five home runs and 13 RBIs in 12 games.
7/27/2015 Josh Rutledge, Bos, SS
The Los Angeles Angels have acquired veteran outfielder Shane Victorino and cash from the Boston Red Sox in a trade for Rutledge. The Angels announced the deal Monday.

Analysis: Rutledge has spent this season in the minors after playing in 105 games for the Angels last season.
7/27/2015 Nelson Cruz, Sea, RF

The Los Angeles Angels have acquired Victorino and cash from the Boston Red Sox in a trade for infielder Josh Rutledge. The Angels announced the deal Monday.

Analysis: The 34-year-old Victorino is a two-time World Series champion, a two-time All-Star and a four-time Gold Glove winner. He has spent the past three years in Boston, batting .245 in just 33 games this season with two stints on the disabled list.
7/27/2015 Rougned Odor, Tex, 2B
Odor was 2 for 5 with a home run and three RBIs in Sunday's loss in Los Angeles.

Analysis: Odor has left the yard in three of four games and has grown into a new hitter in the last month. He was batting .192 entering play on June 27, but he's at .378 with six home runs, four triples and six doubles in 22 games since.
7/27/2015 Johnny Cueto, KC, P
Cueto will make his debut for Kansas City on Friday in Toronto.

Analysis: Cueto was acquired on Sunday in a trade with Cincinnati for left-handers Brandon Finnegan, John Lamb and Cody Reed. Cueto, who won 20 games last season for the Reds, is still getting personal business in order and plans to join the AL's best team on Tuesday.
7/27/2015 Mike Trout, LAA, CF
Trout was 4 for 4 with a grand slam and a solo homer in Sunday's 13-7 home win over the Rangers.

Analysis: His 31 home runs lead the total of teammate Albert Pujols by two for the MLB lead, and he's five off his career high from last season with four games remaining in July. Reaching 30 in his 97th game marks the fastest pace in club history.
7/27/2015 Buster Posey, SF, C
Posey had a season-high four hits in Sunday's 4-3 win over Oakland.

Analysis: Posey is on quite a tear, going 23 for 45 (.511) over his last 11 games.

7/27/2015 Nolan Reimold, Bal, RF
Reimold was 3 for 3 with two RBIs in Sunday's win in Tampa Bay.

Analysis: Reimold had been in a 3-for-25 slump and doesn't get consistent enough at-bats for this to turn into anything.

The Texas Rangers have recalled Klein from Triple-A Round Rock.

Analysis: Texas brought back Klein before its series opener Monday against the AL East-leading New York Yankees. In two previous stints with the Rangers, Klein had an 8.25 ERA in eight games.
