He knows how to look over the baseball. He attacks it when it's in the zone. He fouls balls off. He fights. He is a tough out," he said.The Marlins got Single-A left-hander McKenzie Mills.

Tue Jul 3122:19Gausman helps Braves 'hit all the boxes' for NL East push
ATLANTA (AP) — From the perspective of manager Brian Snitker, the addition of right-hander Kevin Gausman means the Atlanta Braves added help in all the right places for their push to win the NL East.Snitker applauded four trades made by general manager Alex Anthopoulos."I feel really good," Snitker said. "We talked about what you would like to have, and I think he hit all the boxes. Bullpen depth, starting pitcher, maybe a bat off the bench. I think they did a great job."The Braves acquired Gausman and veteran reliever Darren O'Day from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for four prospects Tuesday. The Braves also added outfielder Adam Duvall, acquired from the Reds late Monday, and relievers Brad Brach and Jonny Venters in the last five days.Atlanta didn't part with any of its top prospects in the process, either.The Orioles acquired Triple-A right-hander Evan Phillips, Class A infielder Jean Carlos Encarnacion and two Double-A prospects — catcher Brett Cumberland and left-hander B...

Tue Jul 3119:19NL East-leading Phillies add injured Ramos, lefty Loup
Looking for an offensive boost, the Philadelphia Phillies added an All-Star who may not help them for a while.The NL East-leading Phillies acquired injured catcher Wilson Ramos from the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday for a player to be named or cash. They also got left-hander Aaron Loup from the Toronto Blue Jays for minor league right-hander Jacob Waguespack.Ramos is batting .297 with 14 homers and 53 RBIs but is on the disabled list with a left hamstring strain. General manager Matt Klentak said the best-case scenario has Ramos returning in mid-to-late August, though it's possible he may be sidelined until September."We're uniquely positioned to take on a risk like this," Klentak said in a conference call. "The fact he may not be active for a few more weeks is not the end of the world for us."Ramos said he can do everything behind the plate but still feels pain when he runs.When healthy, Ramos should upgrade an offense that has struggled during a four-game losing streak. He's also solid d... [More]

He is 1-3 with an 11.12 ERA in four starts in July. But the 34-year-old Hamels is an experienced postseason pitcher — he was the NL Championship Series and World Series MVP when Philadelphia won the title in 2008."To be able to change kind of the mindset, now to go on a first-place team, there's something inside of you that sparks when you get in those situations," Hamels said.PLAYOFF PUSHSwitch-hitting infielder Eduardo Escobar is headed to Arizona after the NL West contenders got him from Minnesota Twins on Friday for minor league right-hander Jhoan Duran and outfie...

Fri Jul 2721:43Phillies get INF Cabrera from Mets for pitching prospect
CINCINNATI (AP) — Asdrubal Cabrera moved around a lot for the New York Mets, switching spots all over the infield. He was on the go Friday, too — to the Philadelphia Phillies.The NL East-leading Phillies swung a deal four days before the trade deadline, getting Cabrera from the Mets for Double-A right-hander Franklyn Kilome."He's proven in the batter's box," Philadelphia general manager Matt Klentak said. "He's a solid hitter and can cover three defensive positions. We see him playing second, short and third. Adding a player with flexibility to our roster was really important. We think he's an excellent roster fit for our current group of Phillies.""We think this was our most pressing need. It was important to get this one done, but we will continue to make phone calls looking for any possible way to upgrade the club," he said.Cabrera was hitting .277 with 18 home runs and 58 RBIs as the Mets' second baseman.

CINCINNATI (AP) — The NL East-leading Philadelphia Phillies acquired infielder Asdrubal Cabrera from the New York Mets on Friday for Double-A right-hander Franklyn Kilome.Cabrera was hitting .277 with 18 home runs and 58 RBIs as the Mets' second baseman. The 32-year-old Cabrera was a two-time All-Star shortstop for Cleveland earlier in his career.New York saves the remaining $2,883,065 of Cabrera's $8.25 million salary, which is assumed by the Phillies.

He has started only at second this season. He had three hits, including a homer, and drove in four runs in Thursday night's 12-6 win over Pittsburgh.The 23-year-old Kilome was 4-6 with a 4.24 ERA in 19 starts for Reading in the Double-A Eastern League.Mets assistant general manager John Ricco said several teams were interested in Cabrera as the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline approached.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball
