According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the Nationals have shown interest in Pat Neshek.

Neshek, who is headed for free agency in 2018, acknowledged that it's likely he'll be traded before the July 31 deadline. Nobody is more desperate for a closer than the Nationals and Neshek would seem to be a perfect fit. It's rare for teams to trade within the division but perhaps the two sides would make an exception. The Nats have also expressed interest in White Sox closer David Robertson and Padres lefty Brad Hand.

Addison Russell went 4-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored as the Cubs pounded the Marlins 11-1 on Thursday.

The Cubs' cleanup hitter on this day certainly did his fair share of cleaning up, homering in the seventh inning and knocking two more doubles over the course of the game. It's been a difficult year for the 23-year-old, but he's now hitting .297 (14-for-47) with four homers this month. Overall, Russell still has some work to do on his .234/.304/.413 line.

Chase Headley was unavailable for Thursday's game against the Angels due to back spasms.

Manager Joe Girardi isn't sure if he'll be able to play Friday against Texas. Ronald Torreyes handled the hot corner in Headley's absence on Thursday night. It's been a rough couple of weeks for the Yankees, who have lost eight of nine while falling into a first-place tie with the Red Sox in the AL East. Losing Headley wouldn't help matters.

Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Cubs.

Ozuna launched his 20th homer of the year in the second inning, the only damage the Marlins could muster against Cubs starter Jake Arrieta. He ranks behind only Cody Bellinger in the National League in homers, and he's also among the league leaders in RBI (53) and rate stats. In a forgettable year for the Marlins, the 26-year-old is hitting a less-forgettable .326/.391/.593.

Kris Bryant went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and three runs scored in a win over the Marlins on Thursday.

Bryant had just two hits in his previous 19 at-bats, with no runs batted in in that time, before breaking out Thursday. He hit a three-run homer off Marlins starter Jeff Locke in the fourth inning, his 16th of the year, and scored three of the Cubs' 11 runs in the contest. The 25-year-old is hitting a relatively mediocre .264/.393/.524 with 31 RBI, 48 runs scored and six steals, but there's plenty of time for him to go on a tear and make us forget about his early-season swoon.

Ian Happ - OF - Cubs

Ian Happ had a big night Thursday, finishing 4-for-5 with two RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in a win over the Marlins.

Happ had a double and three singles on the night, plating two of the Cubs' 11 runs on the evening. The 22-year-old has started figuring it out at the plate in recent weeks, batting .333 (12-for-36) with five homers, 11 RBI and seven runs scored in his last nine games. Overall, Happ is hitting .246/.331/.585 in his rookie campaign.

Jeff Locke once again failed to record an out in the fifth inning, allowing five runs on seven hits over four innings in a loss to the Cubs on Thursday.

It's the third time in five starts this year that the southpaw has fallen short of even qualifying for a win. Not that he'd have earned one anyway Thursday, as the Cubs pounded out 11 runs against Locke and company. In five starts, Locke is now 0-3 with a 5.70 ERA and 1.52 WHIP. He'll keep searching for that elusive first win Wednesday against the Mets.
Jun 22 - 10:38 PM

Jake Arrieta limited the Marlins to one run over seven innings in a win Thursday.

The right-hander wasn't overpowering, striking out just three, but he made up for it but scattering six hits without walking a batter. The only blemish was a Marcell Ozuna solo homer. The win improved Arrieta to 7-5 with a 4.36 ERA and 1.29 WHIP through 15 starts. It certainly hasn't come easy for the 31-year-old this year, and he'll try to string together a couple good starts when he faces the Nationals in Washington on Tuesday.
