Sean McAdam of CSNNE.com reports that the Red Sox are unlikely to trade closer Koji Uehara.

The Red Sox are reportedly considering trading the likes of Jon Lester and Andrew Miller, but they apparently intend to make a qualifying offer to Uehara, who is an impending free agent. Because the qualifying offer will likely be in the area of one-year, $15 million this offseason, the thought is that he will accept. Of course, the Red Sox could trade Uehara and still re-sign him as a free agent, but there's the chance they would have to guarantee multiple years in order to do so.

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Monday that Kameron Loe broke his right hand in Saturday's brawl at Triple-A Reno.

Yes, that's his throwing hand. Loe, 32, signed a minor league deal with Arizona earlier this month and had a 9.00 ERA over his first six appearances in Triple-A.

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Monday that Chris Owings (shoulder) has yet to take live batting practice.

Owings landed on the disabled list almost exactly one month ago with a bruised left shoulder and his recovery is taking a bit longer than originally expected. Until he starts hitting without discomfort, it's difficult to pinpoint a timetable for his return.

Athletics designated OF Kenny Wilson for assignment.

The move clears a spot for the newly-promoted Billy Burns on Oakland's 40-man roster. Wilson was just claimed off waivers from the Blue Jays earlier this month and could soon be on the move once again.

FOX Sports' Jon Paul Morosi reports that the Orioles are among the teams who have contacted the Red Sox about Jon Lester.

Hey, it doesn't hurt to ask. Still, it's probably unlikely that the Red Sox would deal Lester to a division rival, even for just two months. The Dodgers are among the other teams who have expressed interest in Lester, who suddenly appears to be a legitimate possibility to be dealt before Thursday.

Craig Gentry is dealing with a non-displaced fracture of his right hand and hopes to only miss a couple of weeks.

Gentry broke his hand on a bunt attempt Sunday, but it sounds like things could have been much worse under the circumstances. The A's have called up speedster Billy Burns for some outfield insurance with Coco Crisp (neck) also sidelined.

Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports hears that teams have called to express interest in Troy Tulowitzki, but that the Rockies have no plans to move him.

There's increased speculation that Tulo wants to be part of a winner, but a deal appears unlikely to come together before Thursday's non-waiver trade deadline, especially considering that he is currently on the disabled list with a left hip flexor strain. Putting the rumors aside, the Rockies would likely have to be overwhelmed to move him. We're guessing it has a better chance of happening this winter, if anything.

Brewers prospect infielder Nick Delmonico has been suspended 50 games for testing positive for an amphetamine.

Delmonico, who was acquired from the Orioles for Francisco Rodriguez last July, was batting .262/.300/.404 with four homers and 15 RBI over 37 games this season in High-A. The suspension essentially ends his season.
