Michael Pineda topped out at 94 MPH in a rehab start on Sunday. If all goes well, he could return to the Yankees rotation sometime in the next ten day.
Pineda has not pitched since being suspended for using pine tar back on 4/23. He was placed on the DL following his suspension due to a back injury. Pineda was having an otherwise successful season though he was spotted using pine tar on multiple occasions which could have contributed to his effectiveness. ANALYST: Jonathan Impemba
Indians recalled Lonnie Chisenhall from Triple-A Columbus.
With the trade of Brandon Moss to the Cardinals the Indians have called up their once promising prospect Chisenhall to add some depth off the bench. Consistency has been Chisenhall's biggest issue during his stints in the majors as he flashes the ability that would make him a solid middle of the order bat but eventually expand his strike zone and ultimately rack up the strikeouts.

Joakim Soria has been traded to the Pirates.
The Pirates already have the NL saves leader in Mark Melancon so Soria figures to move into the setup role for the Pirates. As for the Tigers closer situation owners will have to wait for an official announcement but Alex Wilson has been their most effective reliever this season and could be first in line.

Brandon Beachy is scheduled to pitch Thursday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Beachy's first stint with the Dodgers didn't fare too well this season, so he is going to head back to Triple-A and look to continue building arm strength in hope of regaining his form. The Dodgers have added two starting pitchers prior to the trade deadline, so barring injury, it doesn't appear that Beachy will be helping the big league club in a starting role anytime soon.
