Angels acquired 2B Gordon Beckham from the White Sox for a player to be named later or cash.
On a day where their pitching depth took a major hit, the Angels shored up their middle infield depth with the addition of Beckham. The former hot-prospect, busted out with the Pale Hose in just his second year with them and he hasn't been able to recover since. Perhaps a change of scenery will help, but he'll be serving as the primary back-up infielder. How many at-bats he sees is not yet known.ANALYST: Howard Bender

Michael Morse will be reinstated from the disabled list.
With the Marlins struggling to score runs after losing Giancarlo Stanton, they will activate Michael Morse on Sunday. However, across three levels of the minors in his rehab assignment, Morse only hit .263 in 12 games with one home run and four RBI in 38 total at bats. Just because the Marlins are activating him does not mean you have to in fantasy lineups. Analysis: Greg Jewett
Marlins optioned P Jarred Cosart to Triple-A New Orleans.
Jarred Cosart only lasted 1 2/3 innings in his start on Saturday giving up four hits, seven earned runs, three walks and struck out two to take the loss against the Cubs. With his ERA at 5.36 for the season and the Marlins needing a space to activate Mike Morse, Cosart was the odd man out and will report to Triple-A as a result. Analysis: Greg Jewett
