Braves acquired LHP Justin Kelly from the Angels for RHP Jim Johnson and international pool space.

Kelly, a 33rd-round pick in 2016, put up a 3.53 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, and 57/29 K/BB ratio in 63 2/3 innings this past year between five different levels of the Angels' minor league system. The 24-year-old southpaw can't really be considered a prospect.

Yasiel Puig is not in Friday's lineup against the Mariners.

It's unclear if this means that Puig has decided against appealing his two-game suspension for Tuesday's benches-clearing incident with the Giants. Either way, Enrique Hernandez is making the start in right field.

Dee Gordon will make the start at shortstop Friday against the Dodgers with Jean Segura away on the paternity list.

It will be his first start at shortstop this season. Gordon has now started at three different positions in the last three games. He should go back to splitting time between second base and center field once Segura returns in the next couple of days.

Michael Wacha (oblique) is headed to High-A Palm Beach to begin a rehab assignment.

The exact date of his first rehab start hasn't been revealed, but it sounds like it will be in the next few days. Wacha has been on the shelf since late June with a strained left oblique but has been throwing off a mound for the last week with no issues. He will require multiple rehab starts before rejoining the Cardinals' rotation.

Astros activated OF George Springer from the 10-day disabled list.

Springer needed just a minimum stay on the DL because of a minor left thumb sprain. He'll be back in action this weekend for the Astros' big series against the Athletics in Oakland.

Ryan Braun (rib cage) is not in the Brewers' lineup Friday.

Braun left Wednesday's game with tightness in his rib cage and Thursday's off day apparently wasn't enough for him to heal up. He will take some swings pregame Friday and expects to know more about his availability then. Eric Thames will get a start in the outfield.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Braun will take a day off with a rib injury, and Jesus Aguilar will return to his cleanup spot. Facing a tough pitcher on the road, Aguilar will likely be less than 5% owned across all of DFS, making him a strong tournament play today. Aguilar is hitting .281 off righties and 22 of his 29 HR's this year have come off righties. If you want a high upside bat that no one will have, Aguilar is an intriguing option tonight.

Edwin Encarnacion (hand) is unlikely to be activated when first eligible Tuesday as initially hoped.

Encarnacion is coming back from a bruised right hand and strained left biceps. He's no longer feeling symptoms in his biceps but his hand is apparently still tender. The hope is that he'll be ready to take batting practice on Sunday or Monday. While he won't return when first eligible, he would seem to have a shot to be activated sometime next week if all goes well.

Aaron Judge (wrist) played catch Friday.

There's a chance he could also take some dry swings Friday. The Yankees had initially hoped Judge would miss only three weeks of action with a right wrist fracture, but he's already at the three-week mark now. A return before the end of the month seems unlikely, but at least he's finally making progress.

Cubs placed LHP Mike Montgomery on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 14, with left shoulder inflammation.

Montgomery felt discomfort during his bullpen session Thursday, leading to the move. Tyler Chatwood will start in his place Saturday and could easily get additional turns while Montgomery recovers.
Aug 17 - 4:25 PM

Indians manager Terry Francona said Friday that Trevor Bauer (leg) could return to game action in 4-6 weeks.

It sounds like that would be a best-case scenario, so Bauer making it back at all next month still looks to be up in the air. The right-hander is recovering from a stress fracture in his right fibula and is in a walking boot, although he did do some throwing from his knees Friday.
Aug 17 - 4:14 PM

Rangers placed OF Delino DeShields on the 10-day disabled list with a fracture of the tip of right middle finger.

DeShields suffered the injury during Thursday's game. A potential timetable for his return hasn't been revealed, but he figures to be on the shelf for a while. Carlos Tocci should see most of the starts in center field while DeShields is out.
Aug 17 - 4:04 PM

Red Sox activated 2B Ian Kinsler from the 10-day disabled list.

Kinsler missed the last couple weeks of action with a strained left hamstring. He had four hits in his first 10 at-bats for the Red Sox before going down with the injury and will return to his role as the regular second baseman.
