Diamondbacks' Silvino Bracho: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(6/26/2017) Bracho was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Monday.

The 24-year-old has pitched well across multiple stints with the Diamondbacks in June, having allowed one run on four hits and striking out six over seven innings of work. Bracho earned a spot on the Opening Day roster but has now been optioned to Triple-A six times in 2017, and likely remains near the top of the list should Arizona need a fresh arm.


Cubs' Matthew Carasiti: Dealt to Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(6/26/2017) Carasiti was traded to the Cubs on Monday in exchange for lefty reliever Zac Rosscup.

Carasiti got rocked during a 19-games stint in the majors last season, as he allowed a 9.19 ERA and 2.30 WHIP over just 15.2 innings of work. He has bounced back at Triple-A, though, where he owns a 2.37 ERA with 43 strikeouts over just 30.1 innings of relief this season. The Cubs will take a flyer on him as they add right-handed organizational depth to their bullpen.


Rockies' Zac Rosscup: Acquired by Rockies

(6/26/2017) Rosscup was acquired by the Rockies on Monday in exchange for right-handed pitcher Matt Carasiti,

Rosscup owned a sharp 2.60 ERA and 39:8 K:BB over just 27.2 innings in relief at Triple-A Iowa, but without room on the Cubs' roster, he was designated for assignment last week. He will give the Rockies some much needed left-handed organizational depth in their bullpen.


Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(6/26/2017) Stripling was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma on Monday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Stripling ate up two innings Sunday, which was all the Dodgers really needed from him. He owns a mediocre 4.03 ERA and 1.42 WHIP over 38 innings and will likely be up and down all season long.


Rockies' Jairo Diaz: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(6/26/2017) Diaz was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

He'll take the place of Tyler Anderson (knee) on the roster, who was recently placed on the disabled list with left knee inflammation. Diaz, who started the season on the disabled list after undergoing Tommy John surgery in March of 2016, compiled a 3.52 ERA and nine strikeouts in 7.2 innings for Albuquerque before being promoted. He'll likely start out in low-leverage roles, but the 25-year-old could work his way up into higher-leverage innings if he pitches well.


Rockies' Chad Qualls: Activated from DL
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(6/26/2017) Qualls (back) was activated from the disabled list Monday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

As expected, Qualls is back in the Rockies' bullpen after a minimum stay on the disabled list. The 38-year-old owns a 4.60 ERA and 9:5 K:BB ratio through 15.2 innings of relief this season.


Nationals' Shawn Kelley: Resumes throwing long toss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(6/26/2017) Kelley (neck) was able to take part in long toss prior to Monday's game against the Cubs, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

Kelley could advance to the next phase of the rehab process and throw off a mound in the coming days, but it's not looking like he'll be activated from the disabled list at any point this week. Once the Nationals deem Kelley fit to pitch in games, he may be in store for lower-leverage work after laboring through his first 22 appearances of the season. He's already allowed nine home runs in just 18 innings, which has kept his ERA at a bloated 7.00.


Nationals' Koda Glover: Yet to begin throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(6/26/2017) Glover (back) hasn't resumed throwing since landing on the 10-day disabled list June 11, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

Glover's lack of activity more than two weeks removed from suffering the injury is somewhat concerning, and could put him at risk of remaining sidelined through the All-Star break. Nationals manager Dusty Baker has seemed to rely on Matt Albers and Enny Romero as his primary options to close out games while Glover has been sidelined, but no pitcher in the team's mess of a bullpen has performed well enough to create much separation from his competition this season. Even if Glover is able to reclaim the closing gig once he returns from the DL, it wouldn't be surprising if the team pursued an upgrade via trade to eventually displace him from those duties.


Cubs' Dylan Floro: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(6/26/2017) Floro was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Monday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

With Jeimer Candelario joining the team from Triple-A to temporarily fill in for the injured Addison Russell (shoulder), Floro was sent back to Iowa as the corresponding roster casualty. The 26-year-old didn't appear in a game during his latest stint with the big club, but he compiled a 8.53 ERA and 2.21 WHIP in 6.1 innings with the Cubs earlier in the season. He'll likely be back in the majors sometime later in the year, and could even rejoin the team once Russell is healthy.


Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Walks first batter, remains dominant
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(6/26/2017) Jansen recorded a five-out save Sunday, striking out two and walking his first batter of the 2017 season in a win over the Rockies.

It took 30 games for the dominant closer to finally issue his first free pass of the season, an impressive feat to say the least. With a 0.83 ERA and an astronomical 52.0 K/BB ratio, it's hard to find a better closer in the game right now.
