by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9:31 pm ET) 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.

The Red Sox announced that Sandoval suffered a bruised left forearm. 

He was replaced at third for the second straight night by Josh Rutledge.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Manager Buck Showalter said Tillman was dealing with some soreness in the ankle, though he does not believe the injury is serious at this time, according to MLB.com.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7:54 pm ET) 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.

Dodgers RP Chin-Hui Tsao designated for assignment
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7:47 pm ET) Dodgers reliever Chin-Hui Tsao was designated for assignment on Thursday. Tsao made a less-than valiant return to the big leagues in 2015, after last pitching in 2007 for the Dodgers.

This year, Tsao allowed eight earned runs over seven innings of relief, resulting in an ugly 10.29 ERA.


Dodgers OF Chris Heisey designated for assignment
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7:43 pm ET) 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
(7:37 pm ET) 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.
