by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(1:00 am ET) The Pirats announced late Thursday they have outrighted outfielder Gorkys Hernandez to Triple-A Indianapolis, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Hernandez had been on a rehab assignment at Triple-A. He was hitless in five at-bats with the Pirates in his first MLB action since 2012 before being put on the disabled list with a shoulder injury. 


Reds OF Marlon Byrd has three hits, three RBIs in romp


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) Reds outfielder Marlon Byrd hammered his 17th home run of the season to start a 15-run explosion for his team in an easy win over the Pirates on Thursday. 

Byrd went 3-for-6 in the game, with his biggest hit coming in the first inning, when he connected for a three-run homer off Pirates starter A.J. Burnett. Byrd added a double later in the contest. He now has 37 RBIs on the season. 


Rockies' Corey Dickerson exits Thursday's game with rib injury


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) Rockies left fielder Corey Dickerson left Thursday's game against the Cardinals with a right rib contusion. Dickerson suffered the injury while attempting to catch a fly ball in the fifth inning. He was lifted for a defensive replacement in the sixth.

Dickerson recently returned from the disabled list, though that was for a foot injury. Dickerson's status for Friday's game is currently unknown.


Brewers recall Logan Schafer, Elian Herrera from Triple-A


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) The Brewers have recalled outfielder Logan Schafer and infielder/outfielder Elian Herrera from Triple-A on Thursday. 

Schaefer, who made the Brewers out of spring training, has not appeared in a game for the big club since being sent down in early May. He was 6 for 33 prior to his demotion.

Herrera has had 99 at-bats with the Brewers this year. He had a productive stretch in mid-May, when he homered in three consecutive games. Overall, he's batting .212 with four longballs. He has been down in the minors since early June.

The moves come hours after the Brewers traded away Carlos Gomez to the Astros earlier in the day.


Home run by Justin Upton wins it for the Padres on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) Padres left fielder Justin Upton came through with the biggest hit of the game in the 8-7 win over the Mets on Thursday. Upton, who went 1 for 5 in the game, crushed a three-run home run in the top of the ninth inning, to give the Padres their one-run lead.

Upton came to bat in the ninth after a two men reached following a 45-minute rain delay. He promptly sent a Jeurys Familia pitch over the right-center field wall for the go-ahead, three-run bomb. 

"To hit that ball out of the ballpark into a driving rainstorm, with the wind going across to the deepest part of the park," Padres interim manager Pat Murphy said per MLB.com, "that is highly unlikely."

It was Upton's 18th home run of the season and the third in his last four games, including each of the last two against the Mets. 


Dodgers OF Chris Heisey designated for assignment


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) Dodgers outfielder Chris Heisey has been designated for assignment on Thursday. Spending most of the season in the minor leagues, Heisey went 4 for 26 in 34 games with the Dodgers in 2015. 

The move comes a few hours after a blockbuster three-team deal that netted the Dodgers five big-league players. 


Astros acquire Carlos Gomez, Mike Fiers from Brewers


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) The Astros and the Brewers have struck a deal that would send center fielder Carlos Gomez and starter Mike Fiers to Houston, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports. The Brewers are expected to get several prospects back in the deal, Heyman adds.

Gomez was nearly dealt to the Mets on Wednesday, but the trade fell through after the Mets backed out due to medical concerns. Gomez's addition to the Astros will give Houston a very solid outfield and lineup down the stretch. 

Fiers has been solid for the Brewers this year, posting a 3.89 ERA in 21 starts. He will solidify an already deep rotation for the Astros.

The Brewers officially announced the deal, and they will receive outfielders Domingo Santana and Brett Phillips, along with pitchers Josh Hader and Adrian Houser.

Granderson's fifth-inning blast gave the Mets a 4-1 advantage at the time, but the bullpen was unable to hold the lead. Granderson, who also made a couple of terrific defensive plays, is batting .300 with two dingers and five RBI over his last 10 games.


Pirates OF Gregory Polanco ready to roll Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2015) Pirates outfielder Gregory Polanco is back in action after a knee issue caused him to leave the game Wednesday night in Minnesota. He is set to start Thursday against the host Reds.

Polanco had his six-game hitting streak snapped when he was forced to depart the game against the Twins.


Cardinals LF Matt Holliday back on DL due to right quad strain


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2015) The Cardinals placed left fielder Matt Holliday on the 15-day disabled list Thursday due to a right quadriceps strain. 

The veteran outfielder is on the disabled list for a second time this season due to a right quad strain. He missed 31 games from June 9-July 16 due to the injury. The Cardinals were 18-13 in Holliday's absence.

Holliday appeared in 11 games since his DL activation in mid-July. He hit .207 with one home run, three doubles and five RBI.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Indians trade Brandon Moss to Cardinals for prospect Rob Kaminsky


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2015) The Indians traded outfielder Brandon Moss to the Cardinals for left-handed pitching prospect Rob Kaminsky, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Moss is being traded for the third time in his career. He was part of a three-team trade involving the Red Sox, Pirates and Dodgers at the trade deadline in 2008 and was traded from Oakland to Cleveland in December.

The left-handed slugger is batting .217 with 15 home runs, 17 doubles and 50 RBI in 94 games. The one-time All-Star will be playing for his sixth MLB franchise. He has a career .243/.321/.452/.772 slash line.

Kaminsky was a late first-round draft pick (28th) in 2013. He is 6-5 with a 2.09 ERA in 17 starts for high Class A Palm Beach this season. He is 14-10 with a 2.15 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 43 career appearances (40 starts) in the minors.


Dodgers RF Yasiel Puig hits seventh home run in win Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig had a nice night at the plate in Wednesday's 10-7 win over the A's. Puig went 2 for 4 with a home run, three RBI and a run scored. Puig's two-run home run, his seventh of the year, gave the Dodgers a 3-1 lead in the fourth inning.

He also had an RBI single in the Dodgers' five-run eighth inning, as the team rallied from behind to claim the victory.

Puig has three home runs over his last eight games, but he has just one other hit in 24 at-bats over that stretch. 


Report: Mets' concerns over Carlos Gomez's medicals nixes trade


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) The Mets have reportedly backed out of a deal that would have sent Carlos Gomez to the New York from the Brewers. 

Sources tell FoxSports.com that the Mets had concerns over Gomez's medical records, and decided not to follow through on the proposed deal, which would have sent Wilmer Flores and Zack Wheeler to Milwaukee. 

Gomez spent time on the disabled list earlier this season with a hip injury, but he has played all but one game since June 23. However, it seems the Mets' staff did not like what they saw in the medical report. 

There had been thought that the Brewers saw something in Wheeler's medical charts, as he had Tommy John surgery in March. But reports are saying it's Gomez's injury history that has nixed the deal. 


Padres LF Justin Upton goes yard for 17th home run Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Padres left fielder Justin Upton went 2 for 3, including his 17th home run of the year, in the 7-3 win over the Mets on Wednesday. 

Upton launched a solo home run in the third inning of Bartolo Colon to extend the Padres' lead to five runs. 

As trade rumors contiune to swirl, Upton has now homered three times in his last eight games.


Nationals OF Bryce Harper crushes two homers in victory


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper jumped back into the National League home run lead, blasting two upper-deck shots to give him 29 on the season and Washington a 7-2 win Wednesday. 

Harper continued his terrorization of Marlins starter Tom Koehler, hammering a three-run shot into the second deck of Marlins Park in the fifth inning, his fifth home run off Koehler. 

Harper added another solo shot in the eighth inning, this one again well over 400 feet. Harper now has 68 RBIs on the season and is hitting .335, third in the NL. 


Mets to acquire CF Carlos Gomez from Brewers


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) The Mets and Brewers have agreed on a deal that would send center fielder Carlos Gomez to New York, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports.

In exchange, the Mets would send right-hander Zack Wheeler and infielder Wilmer Flores to the Brewers, according to the New York Post

Gomez was originally signed by the Mets as an amateur free agent back in 2002. He played in 58 games with the Mets in 2007. He hit .232 that year.

In 2008, he was sent to Minnesota in the deal that sent Johan Santana to Queens. He was later traded to Milwaukee in a deal in 2009, and he has been there ever since. 

He was an All-Star in 2013 and 2014 and won a Gold Glove in '13. This year, he is batting .266 with eight home runs for the Brewers.

Gomez is currently signed through the 2016 season.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson has since denied reports of a trade, saying "there is no trade...it will not transpire," Heyman reports.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday limped off the field after hitting into an inning-ending double play in the first inning on Wednesday against the Reds, per FOX Sports.

Pirates RF Gregory Polanco leaves game with knee issue


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2015) Left knee discomfort has resulted in Pirates right fielder Gregory Polanco being removed from the game Wednesday at Minnesota. Jeff Decker took his place in the fourth inning.

Polanco had finally heated up at the plate, hitting safely in 16 of his previous 18 games. He was 0-for-2 Wednesday before going down. The outfielder had been icing his knee after games, and manager Clint Hurdle thought the injury happened in Tuesday's contest. 

"I actually think he might have aggravated it late [Tuesday] night, on a play near the wall," Hurdle said. "And he just couldn't get loose today. We didn't feel it made any sense for him to push it."

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
