Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times is hearing the Dodgers haven't outright refused to talk about top prospects Joc Pederson, Corey Seager or Julio Urias in a trade.

There have been reports that the Dodgers are hesitant to move the trio of top prospects, but Shaikin said the only players they won't be moved for are two-month rentals. Pederson is arguably the best of the three, batting .319/.448/.587 with 23 homers and 25 steals for Triple-A Albuquerque this season. If the Dodgers do move one or multiple prospects, the return will likely be a top-flight starting pitcher.

Brett Lawrie (finger) took batting practice on the field at the Blue Jays' complex in Dunedin, Florida, on Wednesday.

Lawrie also took ground balls during his work on the field, and Jays manager John Gibbons said Lawrie may be ready to begin a rehab assignment by this weekend. It's a nice development for the infielder, who was believed to still be a few weeks away from returning. He could rejoin the club in early August after a short rehab assignment if things continue to progress.

Michael Saunders (oblique) took batting practice Wednesday and could be on a rehab assignment as soon as the weekend.

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Saunders still isn't swinging at 100 percent and that "it's going to take some time," but McClendon had hopes Saunders will be advanced enough to begin a rehab assignment this weekend. Saunders has been on the disabled list since July 11 due to an oblique strain. He was hitting .276/.327/.434 before the injury.

James Paxton (lat) threw a 45-pitch bullpen session Wednesday and is on track to rejoin the Mariners rotation on Saturday.

"I was throwing all my pitches where I wanted to throw them today, my mechanics felt smooth, everything was coming out at the right time. It felt good," Paxton said after the session. The left-hander hasn't pitched since April 8 due to a strained lat. He may have some rust early, but Paxton was pitching well early and could be a valuable contributor for the M's down the stretch.
Jul 30 - 8:03 PM

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) threw another successful bullpen session on Wednesday.

Of note, Cashner was able to throw sliders without discomfort, something that couldn't be said earlier this season. A rehab stint is on the horizon, possibly as early as next week. If all goes well, Cashner should be back with the Padres by the middle of August.

Cubs optioned RHP Blake Parker to Triple-A Iowa.

Parker made two scoreless appearances since being recalled on July 26. The right-hander was sent down for another bullpen arm after Tuesday's 16-inning game.
Jul 30 - 7:52 PM

Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press believes Brian Duensing could draw some trade inquiries before Thursday's non-waiver trade deadline.

Duensing owns a 2.27 ERA and 1.19 WHIP as a reliever this season, and in a market where lefties Andrew Miller and Antonio Bastardo are drawing interest Berardino views Duensing as a trade candidate as well. He also reports the Twins haven't approached Duensing about a long-term deal. Duensing, 31, will be a free agent following the 2015 season.
Jul 30 - 7:49 PM

A source tells Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star that the Royals aren't close to a deal for Emilio Bonifacio.

Bonifacio was on hug watch after his name was absent from a delayed Cubs starting lineup, and the Royals were reported as his expected destination. It still could happen, but right now there doesn't seem to be a ton of fire there. Bonifacio and his .279/.318/.373 line remain likely to be moved before Thursday's non-waiver trade deadline.
