Colorado Rockies left-handed pitcher Jorge De La Rosa was claimed and blocked on waivers, meaning he will not be traded prior to Monday's deadline, CBS Sports reported Friday.
It is not known which team claimed De La Rosa, but it was apparently done to block a trade to a possible contender. He will stay in Colorado though the season.
The Rockies looked to trade De La Rosa before the non-waiver deadline in July, but he will now head into free agency, where the Rockies intend to make him a qualifying offer before trying to re-sign him.
De La Rosa has a 4.19 ERA and 13-9 record in 154 2/3 innings this season. He is 9-2 with a 3.19 ERA this year at Coors Field, and 44-14 with a 4.03 ERA lifetime.
MOLINA BACK FROM DL
St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina was activated from the 15-day disabled list before Friday night's game against the Chicago Cubs.
Molina had been sidelined since July after having right thumb surgery. To make room for him on the roster, the Cardinals optioned catcher Tony Cruz to double-A Springfield.
The 32-year-old Molina tore ligaments in the sliding into third base on July 9 and had the surgery two days later. At the time, he was batting .287 with seven home runs and 30 RBIs in 83 games and 335 plate appearances.
The six-time all-star went 5-for-6 at the plate with three doubles and two RBIs in two rehab games with Springfield.
The Cardinals entered Friday's play trailing the first-place Milwaukee Brewers by 1 1/2 games in the National League Central.
YANKEES ACTIVATE OUTMAN
The New Yankees placed left-handed pitcher Josh Outman on the 25-man roster, one day after acquiring him from the Cleveland Indians.
The Indians traded Outman to the Yankees for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Outman, 29, was 3-1 with a 4.43 ERA in 23 appearances (one start) at triple-A Columbus this season. He was available out of the bullpen beginning Friday against the Toronto Blue Jays
The Yankees also designated pitcher Rich Hill for assignment to clear a spot on the active roster for Outman. Hill appeared in six games for the Yankees as a lefty specialist, allowing just two hits in 2 1/3 shutout innings.
