A nine-player deal completed August 25 confirmed that LA is willing to spend at all costs under new ownership to become a perennial contender, while BOS unloaded $270M in salary in the midst of a very disappointing 2012 campaign. How does this blockbuster trade affect PT in BOS and LA? Also, lots of pitcher shuffling between DL, bullpen, and starting rotation...

While Denard Span (OF, MIN), David Ortiz (DH, BOS) and Jose Bautista (OF, TOR) returned to action after lengthy absences, Dexter Fowler is among those sidelined by injury. Span was 2-for-5 with two SB in his August 23 return, his first action since suffering a bruised clavicle on August 12. Miguel Cabrera (3B, DET) continues playing through injury, though limited to a DH role.

LAA has activated Scott Downs (LHP, LAA) from the 15-day DL after missing the minimum amount of time with a left shoulder strain. In a prior update, BaseballHQ.com's Brian Rudd surmised that Ernesto Frieri (RHP, LAA), who had been in a timeshare for save opportunities with Downs in July, would run away with the role during his absence.

Jon Rauch (RHP, NYM), among the few bright lights in a largely dim bullpen, might be emerging as his team's preferred saves option. Rauch has recorded NYM's two most recent saves, August 12 and 16.

The NYM closing situation remains murky, as both Bobby Parnell (RHP, NYM) and Frank Francisco (RHP, NYM) have also recorded saves this month.
