TRADES

- Giants, Red Sox: As CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman reported, the Red Sox sent RHP Jake Peavy to the Giants in exchange for minor-league pitchers Heath Hembree and Edwin Escobar.

RUMORS, SPECULATION, NEWS, ETC.

- Angels: Signed LHP Randy Wolf to a minor-league deal.

- Astros: Will reportedly promote RHP Mark Appel to Double-A.

- Cardinals: Designated C George Kottaras for assignment in order to make room on the roster for the newly signed C A.J. Pierzynski.

- Phillies: Our own Jon Heyman writes that OF Marlon Byrd may want his option picked up before he approves a trade out of Philly.

INJURY UPDATES

- Blue Jays: 1B Edwin Encarnacion has suffered a minor setback in his recovery from a quad injury. His immediate time-table isn't certain.

- Giants: Why did the Giants swing a deal for Peavy? Because they're worried about the health of Matt Cain. As a source tells Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News, Cain may have a "significant" number of bone chips in the elbow. If that's the case, then Cain's status this season may be up in the air. He's been on the DL since July 11 ... The Giants placed C Hector Sanchez on the 7-day concussion DL.

- Indians: RHP Justin Masterson (knee) is slated to be activated from the DL in time to start on Friday. (Jordan Bastian via Twitter)

- Mets: Placed RHP Daisuke Matsuzaka on the DL with elbow inflammation.
