|7/31/2015||Kyle Kendrick, Col, P|
|Kendrick left Friday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals after one inning due to right shoulder inflammation. Kendrick, who came in 4-11 with a 6.37 ERA, gave up a leadoff home run to Matt Carpenter and trailed 2-0 after one inning.
Analysis: Kendrick has allowed a major league-high 26 home runs this season. He has given up 14 runs in his last three starts covering 10 1/3 innings. Left-hander Aaron Laffey replaced Kendrick on the mound.
|7/31/2015||A.J. Burnett, Pit, P|
|Burnett complained of elbow pain and was placed on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation following his third straight bumpy outing Thursday.
Analysis: Burnett has a 10.13 ERA in his last three starts so the toil of the rigorous baseball season may be taking its toll on the aging veteran.
|7/31/2015||Devon Travis, Tor, 2B|
|Toronto put second baseman Devon Travis on the 15-day disabled list to make room for David Price, who is to make his Blue Jays debut on Monday afternoon against wild-card rival Minnesota.
Analysis: Travis has a left shoulder strain.
|7/31/2015||Garrett Jones, NYY, 1B|
|Jones has been designated for assignment.
Analysis: Jones batted .215 and wasn't helping the Yanks or anyone's fantasy squad.
|7/31/2015||Ryan Cook, Bos, P|
|The active Oakland Athletics traded Cook to the Boston Red Sox on Friday for a player to be named or cash.
Analysis: Cook was pitching for Triple-A Nashville but has been a key member of Oakland's bullpen in the past, even making four appearances for the A's early in the year.
|7/31/2015||Mike Leake, SF, P|
|Leake will make his San Francisco Giants' debut when the right-hander starts their series finale Sunday at Texas. Acquired from the Cincinnati Reds late Thursday night, Leake is replacing 40-year-old Tim Hudson in the Giants rotation. Hudson was placed Friday on the 15-day disabled list with a shoulder strain.
Analysis: San Francisco sent two prospects to Cincinnati for the 27-year-old Leake, who allowed only two earned runs winning his last four starts for the Reds. He threw eight scoreless innings in a win at St. Louis on Tuesday and is 9-5 with a 3.56 ERA in 21 starts this season.
|7/31/2015||Jake Diekman, Tex, P|
|The Texas Rangers have activated newly acquired left-handed reliever Jake Diekman and catcher Bobby Wilson.
Analysis: Diekman and Wilson were available for Friday night's series opener against the San Francisco Giants, as was catcher/first baseman Chris Gimenez after his contract was selected from Triple-A Round Rock. Diekman was part of the trade that also brought ace left-hander Cole Hamels from Philadelphia.
|7/31/2015||Bobby Wilson, Tex, C|

|7/31/2015||Ketel Marte, Sea, SS|
|The Seattle Mariners have recalled infielders Marte and Jesus Montero and pitchers Jose Ramirez and Rob Rasmussen following a busy trade deadline.

|7/31/2015||Luis Severino, NYY, P|
|Severino will make his next start with the New York Yankees.
Analysis: Manager Joe Girardi says the 21-year-old Severino will start at home next week against Boston, but didn't specify when he would get the ball. Severino is lighting it up in the minors, going 7-0 with a 1.91 ERA at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He made his last start on Wednesday, striking out 10 while allowing three hits in six scoreless innings. Fantasy players should immediately jump on the Dominican's bandwagon.
|7/31/2015||Jose Tabata, LAD, RF|
|Tabata was sent to the Dodgers in a deal that included Pittsburgh and Seattle.
Analysis: Tabata, who Los Angeles assigned to Triple-A Oklahoma City, never lived up to expectations after signing a $21-million contract in 2011. He spent most of the last two seasons bouncing back and forth between Pittsburgh and Triple-A Indianapolis, his most notable contribution this season breaking up Max Scherzer's perfect game when the Washington ace dinged Tabata in the left elbow with two outs in the ninth inning on June 20.
|7/31/2015||Carlos Carrasco, Cle, P|
|Carrasco went the distance Thursday, allowing one run and two hits in a 3-1 win over the A's. He fanned seven.

|7/31/2015||Scott Kazmir, Hou, P|

Analysis: Kazmir hasn't given up a run in 14 2-3 innings in two starts for Houston.
|7/31/2015||Eddie Rosario, Min, LF|
|Rosario went 3 for 5 with a three-run homer in Thursday's 9-5 win over Seattle.
Analysis: Rosario has been on a roll, going 11 for 21 over his last five games.
|7/31/2015||Mark Teixeira, NYY, 1B|
|Teixeira went 3 for 4 with two home runs in Thursday's 7-6 loss at Texas.
Analysis: Teixeira had been 1 for 11 over his previous three games and hadn't homered since July 22.
|7/31/2015||David Ortiz, Bos, DH|
|Ortiz went 3 for 3 with two RBIs in Thursday's win over the White Sox.
