Padres activated 2B Jedd Gyorko from the 15-day disabled list.

Gyorko wound up missing close to two months with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. He was batting just .162/.213/.270 in 221 plate appearances before the injury, but the 25-year-old second baseman is capable of much better down the stretch. Gyorko signed a five-year, $35 million contract extension with the Friars in early April.

According to ESPN's Buster Olney, there is a "growing expectation from rival execs" that the Red Sox will move Jon Lester before the July 31 trade deadline.

The Red Sox have failed to work out a long-term contract extension with Lester, who can become a free agent after this season, and so they might as well get something for him before he hits the open market. The Dodgers are known to have interest and many other contending teams will likely be in contact with the Boston front office over the next couple of days. Lester, 30, boasts a 2.52 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 149/32 K/BB ratio in 143 innings this year for the 48-57 Red Sox.

According to Yahoo's Jeff Passan, the Mets have reached out to the Rockies about Troy Tulowitzki.

Passan says New York is "prepared to offer top pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard in a deal for" the star shortstop, who is signed through 2021. The Cardinals have also made their interest known, but it doesn't sound like the Rockies are going to budge this summer on a trade involving the current face of their franchise. Tulo is currently on the disabled list anyway with a left hip flexor strain. He flew to Philadelphia this weekend to meet with a sports hernia surgeon and took in a game (quite controversially) on Sunday at Yankee Stadium.

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) threw a 31-pitch bullpen session on Sunday afternoon at Turner Field.

"I kinda surprised myself with my command," Cashner said after the workout. "It was coming out good." He threw only fastballs and changeups, and is still a long way from returning to the Padres' starting rotation. But it was a significant step in the right direction. The right-hander has been out since late June with a shoulder injury.

Mike Adams (shoulder) hopes to begin throwing off a mound during the first week of August.

Adams, who's been out since June 7 with fraying in his right shoulder labrum, was recently transferred to the 60-day disabled list. The right-hander could return in late August if he's able to avoid setbacks, but he admitted to reporters Sunday that he won't be 100 percent. Adams holds a $6 million club option for next season.

According to MLB.com's Thomas Harding, the Pirates have interest in Rockies closer LaTroy Hawkins.

The Bucs are looking for some easy and inexpensive ways to upgrade their bullpen, and the 41-year-old Hawkins fits that mold. He has posted a 3.09 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 35 innings this season out of the Colorado bullpen on a salary of just $2.25 million. Hawkins also carries a $2.25 million club option for the 2015 campaign.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Giants "remain interested" in trading for Ben Zobrist.

The Giants don't exactly have a loaded farm system and gave up two good young pitchers to acquire Jake Peavy last week, but it seems they're ready to go all-in (so to speak) as they try to keep pace with the Dodgers in the National League West. Zobrist, 33, has hit .268/.358/.409 in 403 plate appearances this season for Tampa Bay. He could play all around the field for San Francisco.

Carlos Gonzalez (ankle) entered Sunday's loss to the Pirates in the top of the sixth inning.

That's a good sign for CarGo's ankle, which he rolled in a pregame workout on Saturday. The 28-year-old outfielder should be in the Rockies' lineup Monday in Chicago.
