Transactions for Saturday, July 21, 2018

Cubs placed RHP anthony Bass on the 10-day disabled list with a back injury.

The severity of the injury, and how much time he stands to miss, are unlcear at the present time. This move clears a spot on the active roster for Jesse Chavez who is joining the club on Saturday.

Cubs recalled RHP Luke Farrell from Triple-A Iowa.

Farrell will serve as the team's 26th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Cardinals. The 27-year-old hurler owns a 3.86 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 37/14 K/BB ratio across 28 innings at the big league level this season.

Cubs recalled RHP Dillon Maples from Triple-A Iowa.

Maples will provide a fresh arm in a Cubs' bullpen that has been taxed over the last two games. The 26-year-old hurler owns a 16.88 ERA and 2.63 WHIP in 2 2/3 innings with the big league club this season. He can be completely ignored for fantasy purposes.

Cubs optioned RHP James Norwood to Triple-A Iowa.

It's the second time in three days that Norwood has been optioned to Triple-A, this time after he gave up one run in two innings of work against the Cardinals on Friday. Dillon Maples has been recalled and will take his place in the Cubs' bullpen.

White Sox signed RHP Mauricio Cabrera to a minor league contract.

The 24-year-old hurler was cut loose by the Braves after posting an 11.03 ERA and 2.71 WHIP across 31 innings at High-A Salem this season. He owns a triple-digit fastball, but has never been able to consistently throw it for strikes. Still, the talent is worth taking a flier on for the White Sox.

White Sox optioned OF Ryan LaMarre to Triple-A Charlotte.

The 29-year-old outfielder was claimed off of waivers from the Twins earlier this month and went 2-for-8 (.250) in his brief time with the White Sox. He'll continue to function as outfield depth at Triple-A.

Yankees recalled RHP Domingo Acevedo from Double-A Trenton.

Acevedo is taking the rotation spot vacated by Domingo German after he was optioned to Triple-A on Friday night. This is the first trip to the big leagues for the 24-year-old hurler. It may be wise to take a wait-and-see approach here before trying to utilize him as a streaming option in mixed leagues.

Cardinals recalled RHP John Brebbia from Triple-A Memphis.

The 28-year-old has already appeared in 27 games with the Cardinals this season, compiling a 4.13 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 36/8 K/BB ratio across 32 2/3 innings. He'll function in middle relief.

Cardinals recalled RHP Luke Weaver from Triple-A Memphis.

Officially, he'll serve as the 26th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs, where he's slated to start Game 1. The 24-year-old is 5-8 with a 4.72 ERA and 1.32 WHIP over 103 innings in his 19 starts with the Cardinals this season.

Cardinals optioned RHP Matt Bowman to Triple-A Memphis.

His stay with the big league club lasted only three days this time around. The 27-year-old has struggled out of the Cardinals' bullpen this season, posting a 6.26 ERA and 1.74 WHIP over 23 innings. He'll bide his time at Triple-A until he's needed again.

Cardinals reinstated RHP Miles Mikolas from the paternity leave list.

He'll rejoin the Cardinals' rotation for Sunday's series finale against the Cubs. The right-hander skipped his first All-Star game in order to be with his wife who gave birth to twins over the break.

Cardinals placed RHP Carlos Martinez on the 10-day disabled list with a right oblique strain.

Martinez suffered the injury during his miserable outing against the Cubs on Thursday. It's unclear how long the 26-year-old hurler will be sidelined, but oblique injuries generally tend to linger for a couple of weeks. Martinez has made 17 starts for the Cardinals this season, registering a 3.39 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 89/48 K/BB ratio over 95 2/3 innings while beaning a league-high 11 batters.
