Astros get OF Cameron Maybin on waiver claim

Astros land Verlander in last-minute trade

The Angels are close to swinging a surprise trade for slugging Detroit outfielder Justin Upton, according to a person with knowledge of the situation who requested anonymity because the deal has not yet been finalized. Upton will provide a big bat in Los Angeles alongside all-star Mike Trout. Only players acquired before September 1 are eligible for postseason rosters. Despite the power, Pujols is just hitting.232 on the season and sports a negative WAR on the season.

Those games against Texas will be key as the Rangers are now chasing the Angels for the final wild care slot.

The Astros acquired Cameron Maybin from the Angels the team announced Thursday.

From the perspective of the Tigers, Upton's deal was a no-brainer. In 23 starts in Double-A this season, he has a 2.52 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP.

Novartis approval for gene therapy signals new cancer treatment era
Eleven patients who had CR+ CRi relapsed after tisagenlecleucel prior to data cut-off and before any new cancer therapy. Novartis said it expects between 30 and 35 centers to be certified to offer the treatment by the end of the year.

Detroit also gets cash considerations or a player to be named. Without Upton, the team receives almost $90 million in salary relief - though they likely would have received that anyways if Upton opted out of his contract at the end of the season, like many expected. His position? Left field. The Tigers want top-tier talent in return for their ace pitcher, but teams are reticent to give up the necessary prospects while also swallowing a larger portion of his future salary (he's owed $56 million over the next two seasons).

The Angels are now 1.5 games back of an American League wild card spot.

He's due $21.125 million annually through 2021, although his contract includes an opt-out clause after this season.
