Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said that Jedd Gyorko didn't start Thursday for the second time in three games due to fatigue.

Gyorko has batted only .159 with a .500 OPS since the All-Star break. He's on pace this season to play more than he ever has at the big league level, so it's not a surprise that he's getting a little worn down. Gyorko will be back in the lineup Friday. "You could just tell he’s beat down a little bit (by) how they’re going about his work," Matheny said. "He’s a guy who wants to grind just like every other guy we have on this team. He’s also appreciative of the fact that we see he’s a little beat down and if we can find a way to buy him a little time to get right, I think, we’re going to end up seeing benefits down the road."

Astros optioned RHP Michael Feliz to Triple-A Fresno.

Feliz has generally pitched well out of the Astros' bullpen this season, but he was bombed for six runs over two innings in his last appearance. He'll be back up later this summer.
Jul 28 - 9:05 AM

Braves recalled RHP Jason Hursh to Triple-A Gwinnett.

The 25-year-old has allowed one run over 5 2/3 innings with the Braves this season. He'll work in middle relief.

Nationals signed 1B/OF Chad Huffman to a minor league contract.

Huffman was released by the Cardinals earlier this week. The 32-year-old was up with the big club briefly but has spent nearly all year at the Triple-A level, hitting .247/.386/.437 with six homers.

David Peralta (knee) singled in one of his four plate appearances in his return to the lineup Thursday.

Peralta sat out Wednesday after fouling a ball off his left knee Tuesday, but he'll be fine. The outfielder has settled into the leadoff spot for the Diamondbacks.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal writes that "the odds remain heavily against" a trade of Justin Verlander.

Rosenthal adds that a source with knowledge of the Tigers' thinking considers it a "low probability" that Verlander is dealt. There are numerous obstacles to a trade, with Verlander's contract and ability to veto any deal among them. There's also the fact that he's 34 and not having a terribly good season. The Cubs, Brewers and Dodgers have been mentioned as possible landing spots for Verlander.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Padres are a "dark horse" to acquire Sonny Gray.

They'd certainly be an unconventional landing spot for Gray given that they're not contenders in 2017 and don't appear poised to contend soon. However, Rosenthal writes that the Padres "have shown steady interest in Gray, apparently viewing him as a possible fit in their long-term plan." The Braves are another non-contender that looks like a legitimate player for Gray. The Yankees, Dodgers and Cubs are also in the mix, while the Astros and Brewers, at this moment, "are not significantly involved" anymore, according to Rosenthal.

Brett Gardner scored the tying run in the ninth inning before hitting a walk-off homer in the 11th to give the Yankees a 6-5 win over the Rays on Thursday.

Gardner had a relatively quiet night before he stepped to the plate to lead off the ninth inning. In that at-bat, he slapped a triple into the left-center gap, eventually scoring the game-tying run later in the inning. He then stepped in to lead off the 11th inning and ripped a pitch over the right field wall to commence the celebration. The 33-year-old now has a career-high 18 homers to go with 46 RBI, 66 runs scored and 13 steals. He's batting .261/.353/.465 after Thursday's fireworks.
