by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:18 am ET) 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
(1:54 am ET) 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. 


Dodgers SP Mike Bolsinger goes five innings in impromptu start


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:41 am ET) Thrown into the start at the last minute, Dodgers right-hander Mike Bolsinger pitched reasonably well against the A's. Bolsinger allowed two runs on eight hits over five innings. He walked three and struck out three, needing 90 pitches (57 strikes) to get through the fifth. 

Bolsinger would not factor in the decision however, as the Dodgers won the game 10-7 in the late innings. Bolsinger left the game leading 3-2, but the bullpen allowed four runs to score in the seventh. The Dodgers would counter with five in their half of the inning, en route to the victory.

Bolsinger finishes the month of July with a 1-1 record and a 3.00 ERA in five starts.


Report: Dodgers, Marlins, Braves working on three-team deal


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:52 am ET) The Braves, Dodgers and Marlins are in the working stages of a three-team, nine-player deal. According to reports, the Braves are expected to send top prospect Jose Peraza , left-hander Alex Wood and relievers Jim Johnson and Luis Avilan to the Dodgers.

In return, the Braves would receive prospect Hector Olivera , lefty reliever Paco Rodriguez and minor-league pitcher Zach Bird from the Dodgers, and a 2016 draft pick from the Marlins.

The Marlins are also sending right-hander Mat Latos and first baseman Michael Morse to the Dodgers in exchange for three minor-league pitchers--right-handers Jeff Brigham, Victor Araujo and Kevin Guzman.

None of the three teams have officially announced the deal as of yet. 


Pirates acquire veteran SP Joe Blanton from Royals


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(12:42 am ET) The Pirates made a minor move early Thursday, grabbing veteran starter Joe Blanton from the Royals in exchange for cash considerations, per the teams involved.

Blandon had been designated for assignment by the Royals on Monday, shortly after they acquired starter Johhny Cueto. Blanton was 2-2 with two saves and a 3.89 ERA in 15 games with the Royals this season. 


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


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:22 am ET) 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. 


Report: Cole Hamels traded to Rangers in blockbuster deal


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(12:00 am ET) Phillies starter Cole Hamels, one of the top targets on the trade market, has reportedly been traded to the Rangers as part of an eight-player and cash deal between the teams, per multiple sources.  

Hamels, who is coming off a no-hitter last Sunday, is 6-7 with a 3.64 ERA in 20 starts this season, but the left-hander is considered to be one of the top pitchers in the game, compiling 114 wins in his 10-year career, all with Philadelphia. In addition to Hamels, the Rangers also receive reliever Jake Diekman. 

The rebuilding Phillies get a large haul of young talent, including lefty starter Matt Harrison, top catching prospect Jorge Alfaro, outfielder Nick Williams and pitchers Alec Asher, Jerad Eickhoff and Jake Thompson. 

The trade has not been officially announced by either team.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Padres infielder Yangervis Solarte recorded his second career four-hit game in Wednesday's 7-3 win over the Mets. Solarte went 4 for 5 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored.

The strong night at the plate gives Solarte a .343 batting average over his last nine games. 


Padres 1B Yonder Alonso contributes solo home run in win


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso went 2 for 5 with a double and a home run in the 7-3 win over the Mets on Wednesday. Alonso's solo home run gave the Padres a five-run advantage in the third inning.

The home run was Alonso's fourth of the year, and the second in his last five games. 


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.


D-Backs 1B Paul Goldschmidt extends hit streak to 11 games


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt pushed his hitting streak up to 11 games with a 2 for 5 effort in the 8-2 win over the Mariners on Wednesday. Goldschmidt also drove in a pair of runs and scored a run on the afternoon.

Over the course of the streak, Goldschmidt is batting .429 (15 for 35) with a home run and five RBI. He has also walked 13 times in the 11-game span, compared to just six strikeouts.


Rockies' DJ LeMahieu snaps 18-game hitting streak Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Second baseman DJ LeMahieu's hitting streak ended at 18 games, as he went 0 for 4 in the Rockies' 3-2 loss to the Cubs on Wednesday.

LeMahieu's streak was the longest active in the majors. He had gone 32 for 72 with five doubles, two triples and nine RBI over the streak. He raised his season average up from .300 to .324 over the 18-game stretch.


Aroldis Chapman nabs 21st save for Reds


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Reds closer Aroldis Chapman came into a tight situation and excelled once again, picking up his 21st save of the season to preserve a 1-0 victory. 

Chapman struck out Jason Heyward looking and Yadier Molina swinging to end the game, needing just 13 pitches to power through the Cardinals' hitters. The closer remains one of the prime targets of several teams as the trade deadline approaches. 


Cardinals SP John Lackey finds self on wrong end of 1-0 score


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Usually when a pitcher goes eight innings, allowing just one run on two hits, he's in line for a victory, but Wednesday, Cardinals starter John Lackey was saddled with a loss as the Reds eked out a 1-0 win. 

Lackey was masterful save for one mistake -- a second-inning home run to Jay Bruce -- but that pitch dropped his record to 9-6 on the season. Lackey struck out eight and walked just one, needing only 86 pitches to go eight innings. 

The loss ended a three-game winning streak for Lackey. 


Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani picks up sixth win of season


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Young Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani had one of his better outings of the year Wednesday, keeping the Cardinals in check over his seven innings of work in a 1-0 triumph. 

DeSclafani gave up just three hits while walking three and striking out three to improve to 6-7 on the season. The victory ends a three-game losing streak for DeSclafani, who threw 91 pitches.


Mets 1B Lucas Duda crushes three solo home runs on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) First baseman Lucas Duda was responsible for all the Mets' offense in the 7-3 loss to the Padres on Wednesday. Duda busted out his first career three-homer game, blasting a trio of solo bombs over the right-field wall.

Duda is locked in at the plate right now, as he has gone deep seven times in his last four games. 


SP Mike Foltynewicz hard-luck loser for Braves


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz pitched well in a spot start, but two mistakes cost him in a 2-0 loss to the Orioles on Wednesday. 

In his first start since June 14, Foltynewicz struck out eight batters over six innings, but allowed solo home runs in the third and fourth innings for the only blemishes on his ledger. 

Foltynewicz, who was recalled from Triple-A to fill in for injured Manny Banuelos, falls to 3-3. It's unclear whether he will make another start. 


Mets SP Bartolo Colon gets blasted by Padres on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Mets starter Bartolo Colon got roughed up by the Padres in Wednesday's 7-3 loss. Colon was charged for six runs on 10 hits in just 2 1/3 innings, his shortest outing in his tenure with the Mets. 

Colon (9-10, 4.96ERA) struggled right out of the gate in this one, as he allowed two runs in each of the first three innings, including third-inning home runs to Justin Upton and Yonder Alonso. 

Colon was coming off his best start of the year, but that came after a couple of sub-par outings for the veteran right-hander. Colon is 0-4 with a 6.99 ERA over his past four starts.


Padres SP Tyson Ross rides offensive support to seventh win


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Padres starter Tyson Ross picked up his seventh win of the season in Wednesday's 7-3 victory over the Mets. Ross allowed one run on two hits over five innings. He issued four walks and struck out five, throwing 47 of his 83 pitches for strikes. 

The only run Ross gave up was a solo home run by Lucas Duda, snapping a streak of 100 innings without issuing a longball for Ross. But he was lifted after five innings with the Padres already ahead by five runs.

Interim manager Pat Murphy said Ross' thigh stiffened up after taking a comebacker, but he could have pitched longer if necessary, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune

Ross (7-8, 3.38 ERA) is 2-1 with a 2.81 ERA over his past six starts.
