Sam Fuld - OF - Twins

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Athletics are looking at numerous outfield options, including Sam Fuld of the Twins.

Fuld had a brief stint with the Athletics earlier this season and the club is looking for some depth given the health of Coco Crisp (neck) and Craig Gentry (hand). The 32-year-old has played well since joining the Twins, but it likely wouldn't take much to acquire him.

Jayson Werth (ankle) is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Marlins.

Werth left Monday's game after twisting his right ankle, but the expectation was that he would be good to go Tuesday. However, he apparently needs some more time. Nate McLouth will start in right field.

Marlon Byrd is getting a scheduled day off Tuesday.

With the trade deadline looming, it was a bit curious to see Byrd out of the lineup Tuesday, but there's nothing doing yet. Still, there's a decent chance he'll be moved by Thursday.

According to Jeff Passan and Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports, the Pirates are "a fast-emerging dark horse" to acquire Jon Lester from the Red Sox.

The Pirates could use an ace as much as anyone and they have the prospects to get a deal done. For what it's worth, prospect outfielder Josh Bell is said to be "at the center" of talks. The Dodgers, Brewers, and Orioles are among the other teams who have been linked to Lester over the past couple of days.

Chris Davis is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Angels.

The struggling Davis will sit against Jered Weaver. Meanwhile, Steve Pearce will start at first base and Delmon Young will serve as the DH.

Andy Martino of the New York Daily News hears from major league sources that the Royals could be interested in the Mets' Bartolo Colon or the Phillies' A.J. Burnett.

Martino notes that the Royals might not be able to add the payroll necessary to acquire Colon or Burnett, but the team's evaluators like both pitchers. Colon, who got the best of Burnett on Monday, is owed $11 million next season. Burnett's contract includes a complicated player option for 2015 which already guarantees him $7.5 million. It will increase to $12.75 million if he makes 30 starts this season. He has already made 23 starts.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Orioles are not pursuing Twins' catcher Kurt Suzuki.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported a few days ago that the O's and Cardinals were showing trade interest in Suzuki, but Baltimore apparently feels content with their in-house options. St. Louis might also be out as an option after their recent addition of A.J. Pierzynski.
Jul 29 - 3:21 PM

Eric Hosmer (hand) is back in Tuesday's lineup against the Twins.

Hosmer has missed four straight starts due to a bruised right hand, but he's ready to give it a go. He'll bat third against Trevor Bauer.
