J.D. Martinez (elbow) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Toledo.

Jul 26 - 8:38 AM

Homer Bailey (elbow) gave up two runs on five hits and four walks over 4 1/3 innings Monday in his latest rehab start with Triple-A Louisville.

Bailey made it up to 98 pitches, though the results weren't ideal. He has yet to complete six innings since resuming his minor league rehab assignment about a week ago. The plan calls for him to meet the team in San Francisco from here, so it's possible he could finally be cleared to be activated from the disabled list. Bailey hasn't pitched in the majors since April of 2015 due to Tommy John surgery.
Jul 26 - 8:36 AM

Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Omaha.

Cain, who has been out for about a month with a left hamstring strain, got the green light after doing some running over the weekend. Barring a setback, he appears on track for a return around the end of the month.
Jul 26 - 8:27 AM

Nationals activated LHP Sammy Solis from the 15-day disabled list.

Solis, out since July 7 with right knee inflammation, was cleared to return after making two appearances on a minor league rehab assignment. He returns to a 2.43 ERA and 34/16 K/BB ratio in 29 2/3 innings.
Jul 26 - 8:23 AM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Blue Jays have agreed to acquire outfielder Melvin Upton from the Padres.

The Padres are expected to receive a Class A prospect in return. No word yet on the financial details, but the deal is expected to be finalized on Tuesday. Upton is batting .256/.304/.439 with 16 home runs, 45 RBI, and 20 steals across 95 games this season and should add some versatility to Toronto's outfield. The addition could allow Jose Bautista to see more time out of the designated hitter spot and Edwin Encarnacion to play more first base. Upton is still under contract (for $16.45 million) next season, which is notable with Jose Bautista and Michael Saunders due to hit free agency this winter. The Padres are expected to pick up some of the tab.

Jay Bruce - OF - Reds

Jay Bruce hit a pair of two-run homers off Jake Peavy to lead the Reds to a 7-5 win over the Giants on Monday.

One last hurrah for Bruce in a Reds uniform? It was his third two-homer game of the season, the others coming on April 7 and May 18. He's tied with teammate Adam Duvall for fifth place in the NL with 23 homers.
Jul 26 - 1:58 AM

Raisel Iglesias pitched two perfect innings out of the pen for his fourth hold Monday against the Giants.

Iglesias has been the Reds' best reliever since coming off the disabled list, but the team has continued to use him as a multi-inning guy, suggesting that he won't soon be a threat for saves. He's allowed just one run in 20 1/3 innings over his 10 appearances as a reliever.
Jul 26 - 1:56 AM

Jake Peavy gave up three homers and six runs over five-plus innings Monday in a loss to the Reds.

Peavy had a great run in late May and June, but he's given up 20 runs -- 17 earned -- over 25 1/3 innings in his last five starts. His rotation spot could again come into jeopardy if he's not better next time out.
