According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Phillies are talking to the Blue Jays about outfielder Curtis Granderson.

Per Rosenthal, the Phillies are looking at Granderson as a left-handed bat off the bench and fourth outfielder. The 37-year-old is batting .230/.337/.417 with nine homers and 29 RBI over 81 games this season. This includes a .781 OPS against right-handers. The veteran outfielder would be a nice fit for multiple contenders.

Rangers manager Jeff Banister said the decision to remove Joey Gallo (ankle) from Sunday's game was precautionary.

Gallo injured his ankle on the first base bag while trying to beat out a grounder, but fortunately it doesn't sound serious. "I’ve played on sprains before," said Gallo. "Just ice it all night and tape it up tomorrow." Consider him day-to-day.

According to Jon Heyman of FanCred Sports, the Yankees are "still trying" on Orioles closer Zach Britton.

The Astros and Cubs have been been mentioned most prominently in reports, but the Yankees are on a long list of teams who are also in the mix. Many were skeptical that Peter Angelos would sign off on Manny Machado going to the Yankees, but it could be a different story with Britton. In truth, Britton would be a luxury for New York's bullpen, which is already tops in the majors with a 2.78 ERA. Their biggest need is a starting pitcher.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Rockies are scouting Orioles' right-handers Kevin Gausman and Dylan Bundy.

Rosenthal adds that while the Rockies are looking at starters and relievers from other clubs, they have longstanding interest in Gausman, who is a Colorado native. The Orioles are weighing all sorts of trade scenarios right now, as Roch Kubatko of MASN reported Sunday that the Brewers, Yankees, and Braves have all asked about Gausman. Meanwhile, the Braves are also reportedly among the teams interested in Bundy. Gausman is under team control through 2020 while Bundy won't be a free agent until after 2021.

Twins recalled LHP Adalberto Mejia from Triple-A Rochester.

As expected, Mejia will make the start Monday against the Blue Jays. The southpaw made one appearance with the Twins at the end of June and owns a 3.32 ERA and 61/20 K/BB ratio in 62 1/3 innings at Triple-A this year. He's a shaky streaming option in fantasy leagues.

Matt Duffy (back) went 0-for-3 in his return to action Sunday against the Twins.

Duffy missed the first two games out of the All-Star break while nursing back spasms, but he's feeling better now. The 27-year-old has been excellent when healthy this year, batting .314/.369/.410 with four homers, 27 RBI, and seven steals over 81 games.

J.D. Martinez (general soreness) went 0-for-3 with a sacrifice fly in his return to action Sunday against the Tigers.

Martinez was held out of Saturday's lineup with general soreness after running into the outfield wall on Friday, but he felt good enough to return as the DH on Sunday. He's now up to 81 RBI on the year, tops in the majors.

Evan Longoria was beaned in the upper left triceps in his final plate appearance during his minor league rehab assignment on Sunday.

Longoria is fine, he did not sustain any further injury from the beaning, but the veteran third baseman was not happy about it. As long as he's feeling alright on Monday, it sounds as though Longoria will return to the Giants on Tuesday.
