Look! A trade not involving the Phillies:

 

That would be the Cardinals getting Mujica from the Marlins. Cox is a Triple-A third baseman.

Mujica is 0-3 with a 4.38 ERA in 41 appearances this year. He has struck out 26 and walked 9 in 39 innings.  Cox is at Memphis, hitting .254/.294/.421 with 9 homers in 316 plate appearances.

The Braves announced late this morning that the CT scan on Ronald Acuña’s left elbow came back clear and he is considered day-to-day.

As you have all heard by now, Acuña was pulled from Wednesday night’s game against the Marlins after taking a Jose Urena pitch off his elbow in the bottom of the first inning in what was quite obviously an intentional plunking. Acuña  only suffered a bruise and some swelling. He missed all but that at bat of last night’s game and will likely sit out tonight’s game against the Rockies. It is expected that he’ll be back in action this weekend, however.

Acuña is batting .358/.425/.821 with 12 home runs, 24 RBI, and 25 runs scored over his last 25 games.
