MLB trade deadline digest:

Cam Atkinson: Two-Year Extension With Jackets
Update: Atkinson signed a two-year, $2.3 million contract extension with the Blue Jackets on Friday, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

Recommendation: The 23-year-old winger has agreed to continue his career in Columbus after taking a relatively modest step forward in his second year with the club. Atkinson has notched just two more points than he did last season (in seven more games), but he has improved his plus-minus rating from plus-1 to 2011-12 to plus-7 this year.
