Freddie Freeman is in the Braves' lineup Thursday against the Dodgers.

Freeman left Wednesday's game early after coming down with an illness and is still feeling the effects of it, but got the green light for Thursday's game anyway. He'll man third base and bat third against Dodgers right-hander Brandon McCarthy.

Asdrubal Cabrera has been taking ground balls at third base.

A shortstop by trade, Cabera has been filling in for Neil Walker at second base. With Jose Reyes excelling at shortstop and Walker nearing a return from the disabled list, it looks like Cabrera could be headed to the hot corner. Manager Terry Collins also acknowledged that getting Cabrera reps at third base may make him more appealing to teams at the trade deadline. Cabrera has made one just one appearance at third base since debuting in 2007.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman said Dellin Betances "is not going anywhere."

New York's bullpen is looking crowded following the additions of David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle, leading some to wonder if Betances could be on his way out. However, Cashman quickly shot down any thought of trading the right-hander, citing his four All-Star appearances and his connection to New York as a "homegrown local guy." "I don't really like to address speculation," said Cashman. "But I can tell you that Dellin Betances is not going anywhere." The 29-year-old hasn't been as dominant as usual this year, but he still boasts a brilliant 16.95 K/9 over 35 outings for the Bronx Bombers.

ESPN's Buster Olney is hearing from "rival evaluators" that the Astros may be the "most motivated" to trade for Zach Britton.

It's still hard to believe Britton, who pitched to a 0.54 ERA while finishing fourth in AL Cy Young voting last year, is actually available. But with the Orioles struggling to stay afloat in the AL East and Britton nearing the end of his contract (his deal expires after 2018), it's certainly become a possibility. Houston already boasts a strong bullpen but could use another arm with Will Harris (shoulder) on the disabled list. The Dodgers have also been in pursuit of Britton.

Mariners GM Jerry Dipoto said the team could use David Phelps in the starting rotation in the future, but not this season.

The Mariners acquired Phelps Thursday in a deal that sent four prospects to Miami. Phelps has made 64 big league starts and could return to that role at some point but for now, the Mariners are content using him out of the pen. The 30-year-old right-hander has contributed a 3.45 ERA with 18 holds this season.
Jul 20 - 7:54 PM

Todd Frazier (hand) is in the Yankees' lineup Thursday against the Mariners.

Frazier took a pitch off his right hand Wednesday in his Yankees debut but is good to go for Thursday night's series opener. He's starting at third base and batting seventh against Seattle right-hander Felix Hernandez. Chase Headley is handling first base.
Jul 20 - 7:35 PM

Mitch Haniger (finger) is back in the Mariners' lineup Thursday against the Yankees.

He's back after missing four games with a finger injury he suffered on a bunt attempt. Haniger will draw the start in right field while batting seventh against All-Star right-hander Luis Severino. The 26-year-old got off to a hot start this year but has hit just .176 since returning from the DL last month.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Athletics "have named their price" for Sonny Gray in trade talks with the Yankees.

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports added that the A's have a scout observing the Yankees' Double-A affiliate in Trenton tonight. The Yankees made a huge trade earlier this week when they acquired Todd Frazier, David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle from the White Sox and from the looks of it, they're not done adding pieces. Gray has drawn widespread trade interest with the Astros and Indians among his top suitors. The Yankees could certainly use another arm after losing Michael Pineda to Tommy John surgery earlier this month.
