Yankees traded Peter O'Brien in exchange for Martin Prado.

O'Brien earned a promotion after hitting .321 with 10 home runs over 30 games at High-A this season and has since hit 23 home runs in 72 games at Double-A. He's got tremendous power obviously, but he also strikes out more than 25-percent of the time and he doesn't know how to draw a walk.

Didi Gregorius went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored during the Diamondbacks' 5-4 win over the Reds on Wednesday.

The usually slick-fielding, light-hitting shortstop has been on a bit of an offensive surge lately and has hit safely in five of his last six games with four multi-hit performances. He's batting .391 (9-for-23) with two home runs, four RBI, four runs scored and two stolen bases in that span and has entrenched himself in the starting shortstop role as Nick Ahmed has gone back to the bench with the return of Aaron Hill.

Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, a run scored and a walk against the Reds on Wednesday.

While it isn't exactly the dream season it was last year and it looks like it's going to be tough for Goldy to break the 30-home run barrier for a second consecutive season, he's still posting strong enough totals to keep him as the No. 1 first baseman out there (obviously assuming you're all wisely using Miguel Cabrera at third still). He's batting .301 with 19 home runs, 69 RBI and nine stolen bases thus far and should continue to be a highly-productive asset the rest of the way.

Addison Reed picked up his 26th save after getting the final two outs of the ninth inning against the Reds on Wednesday. He did allow a solo home run.

Though he did serve up a solo shot to Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco in this one, Reed managed to notch his sixth save in his last seven outings. It was the only run he's allowed in that span and even with the mistake, he's managed to keep his ERA below 4.00 over his last four appearances. It's definitely possible that the Diamondbacks deal him away as everyone expects Tony LaRussa to do some sort of house-cleaning, but so far, all is quiet.

Wade Miley tossed 6.2 shutout innings against the Reds on Wednesday. He allowed seven hits and four walks with just one strikeout.

Miley bounced back from a tough outing last week and now has thrown five quality starts in his last six outings. He's picked up four wins in that span, and while he's walked a few too many lately and only fanned one in this most-recent outing, he's seen a decent uptick in his strikeout rate as he improves those ratios. He's got a nice, favorable match-up against the Royals next week, so leave him active.

Veteran Eric Chavez, who has battled knee problems all season, is retiring.

It's time, Eric. It's time. After 17 seasons and a world of injuries throughout the career, we appreciate your efforts and thank you for your performance. He finishes with a career slash line of .268/.342/.475 with 260 home runs and 902 RBI.

Clayton Richard will sign a minor league deal with the Diamondbacks.

The Diamondbacks will get him right out into the Arizona League and start this weekend. He underwent AC joint surgery last summer and thoracic outlet surgery over the offseason but it seems that it's time for him to get back into game action. There is a chance we could see him as a September call up if all goes well.
