CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Johnny Cueto "is at least on (the Astros') radar."

It's possible they could ultimately shoot a little lower (Heyman says that they're also considering Aaron Harang), but it sounds like there's a good chance the Astros will add a starter before the deadline. One executive noted that potential trade talks between the Astros and Reds could get interesting given the icy relationship Houston general manager Jeff Luhnow and Cincinnati GM Walt Jocketty had when together in St. Louis. Cueto is currently dealing with an elbow issue, but he was cleared of structural damage and is expected to rejoin the rotation Sunday.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Aaron Harang "has at least been discussed by the Astros."

It's unclear at this point whether they deemed him a fit or not, but the common feeling is that the Astros will look to add an arm to their rotation. Harang, 37, has experienced a career renaissance, putting up a 1.93 ERA across 10 starts for the Phillies this season.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that "there's said to be a bit of a market" for Alejandro De Aza.

De Aza was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Wednesday after batting .214/.277/.359 over 30 games. He's making $5 million this season, so the O's would likely have to eat some of the contract to move him in a trade. Heyman says that the Angels are not among the clubs interested in De Aza.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Cody Ross is receiving interest from clubs looking to sign him to a minor league contract.

It sounds like Ross isn't ready to jump at any of the offers, though, preferring to hold out for an ideal situation. The 34-year-old was released by the A's earlier this month after notching just two hits in 22 at-bats.

Phillies recalled 3B/OF Cody Asche from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Asche batted .295/.358/.393 with one homer over 15 games for Lehigh Valley while making the conversion from third base to left field. The Phillies will make a corresponding move prior to Friday's game.

Royals pitching prospect Sean Manaea (abdomen) has been shut down from his throwing program due to a groin injury.

Manaea has been out all season with an abdominal strain and now has a groin ailment to deal with. He's expected to be assigned to Double-A Northwest Arkansas by the third week of June.

Brandon Finnegan will be used as a starter at Triple-A Omaha.

The Royals had been planning to use him in relief in case he was needed for a bullpen role in the majors, but Finnegan needed to iron out some issues in his delivery and the club thought the best way for him to do that would be as a starter. Finnegan has split his time between starting and relieving in the minors this season, posting a 3.60 ERA and 15/13 K/BB ratio over 15 innings between Double- and Triple-A.

Royals pitching prospect Kyle Zimmer (shoulder) will make his season debut at Low-A Lexington on Friday.

Zimmer had been shut down for a few weeks after having soreness in his surgically repaired right shoulder, but he's back on track now. He'll work in relief for now as the Royals build him up. The 23-year-old was one of the best pitching prospects in the game before the shoulder issues cropped up in 2014, but he's playing catch-up now after throwing just 4 2/3 frames since the beginning of last season.
