Royals acquired RHP Liam Hendriks and C Erik Kratz from the Blue Jays in exchange for 3B Danny Valencia.

Hendriks holds a 6.08 ERA in three starts in the majors this season but boasts a 2.33 mark at Triple-A. He'll provide some rotation depth for the Royals.

Royals acquired C Erik Kratz and RHP Liam Hendriks from the Blue Jays in exchange for 3B Danny Valencia.

Kratz has hit .198/.226/.346 with three homers over 34 games for the Jays this season. He's show pop in his career with 21 homers over 501 plate appearances and is likely to take over as Salvador Perez's primary backup.

Blue Jays acquired 3B Danny Valencia from the Royals in exchange for RHP Liam Hendriks and C Erik Kratz.

Valencia can play third base against left-handed pitching until Brett Lawrie (finger) is ready to return, and even then he might still get starts if Lawrie is used at second base. The 29-year-old has batted .282/.328/.382 with two homers over 36 games for the Royals this season and is a career .333/.369/.510 batter versus southpaws.

Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins are "thought to be considering" a trade for Tommy Milone.

Milone requested a trade from the A's last week, as he became buried on their depth chart following the acquisition of Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel. As Spencer notes, the lefty is appealing to the Marlins because he won't reach free agency until 2018. Spencer also lists Wade Miley and Ian Kennedy as possible targets for the Marlins, with Kennedy being the unlikelier of the two. Miley might also be a long shot, as FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported earlier this month that the D'Backs have told teams the southpaw is unavailable.

Brandon Belt (concussion) passed a concussion test Monday.

He could resume baseball activities as soon as Monday. It's obviously great news for the Giants, as Belt should rejoin the lineup in short order now that his post-concussion symptoms appear to be behind him. The first baseman has been out of action since July 19.
Jul 28 - 7:06 PM

Daisuke Matsuzaka (elbow) is expected to resume throwing in 3-4 days.

Matsuzaka doesn't have an structural damage in his right elbow and anti-inflammatory medication has reduced the swelling. He's eligible to return from the DL on August 9 and it sounds like he'll have a shot to be ready at that time.
Jul 28 - 6:59 PM

Aaron Hill (hand) is expected back in the lineup on Tuesday.

Hill has missed the last two games after being hit on the right hand by a pitch Saturday, but he's feeling much better. The second baseman had heated up at the plate of late, batting .410/.442/.718 with a couple homers during a 10-game hit streak.
Jul 28 - 6:55 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Marlon Byrd is "not an option" for the Royals and the Mariners' talks for the outfielder "remain stalled."

Byrd has been connected to both clubs, but the Royals and Mariners are both on his no-trade list. The outfielder has said he'd be willing to waive the clause only if his $8 million option for 2016 is picked up. Byrd has also been linked to the Reds, and ESPN's Jim Bowden said last week that talks between Cincinnati and Philadelphia are ongoing.
