Joel Sherman of the New York Post was told that Michael Pineda is dealing with a right forearm muscle strain, not an elbow issue.

Sherman says it's not considered serious, but Pineda has been scratched from his scheduled start Thursday night against the Rangers and it's not clear when he might be ready to pitch next. Bryan Mitchell will take the mound for the Yankees, who may now have a little more urgency to add a starter ahead of the July 31 trade deadline.

Blue Jays acquired LHP David Price from the Tigers for LHPs Daniel Norris, Jairo Labourt, and Matt Boyd.

Price had been drawing heavy interest from the Dodgers, Yankees, Cubs, and Giants, but the Blue Jays beat all the other offers. It's a risky play to give up so much young, cost-controlled talent for what could be a 2-3 month rental -- Price is eligible for free agency after the World Series -- but the Jays feel they can make a postseason push and they've now combined two of the top trade targets on this year's market. Troy Tulowitzki was acquired from the Rockies earlier this week.

Tigers acquired LHPs Daniel Norris, Jairo Labourt, and Matt Boyd from the Blue Jays for LHP David Price.

Norris hasn't shown a whole lot yet at the major league level, but the 22-year-old left-hander entered the 2015 season as one of the top pitching prospects in baseball and the Tigers get six years of him for 2-3 months of Price. Labourt and Boyd also carry considerable upside. It's a nice haul for the retooling Detroit front office.

Tigers acquired LHPs Jairo Labourt, Matt Boyd, and Daniel Norris from the Blue Jays for LHP David Price.

Labourt has posted some underwhelming numbers this season in High-A ball, but he's a big left-hander with a very good arsenal and he doesn't turn 22 years old until next March. The kid is more than just a throw-in.

Tigers acquired LHPs Matt Boyd, Jairo Labourt, and Daniel Norris from the Blue Jays for LHP David Price.

Boyd, a 6-foot-3 southpaw, boasts a 1.68 ERA, 0.84 WHIP, and 107/24 K/BB ratio in 112 2/3 innings this season between Double-A and Triple-A. He made two starts earlier this year for Toronto and neither went particularly well, but the 24-year-old former sixth-round pick looks like a nice long-term rotation piece for the retooling Tigers.

According to Mike Francesa of WFAN, Michael Pineda has been scratched from his scheduled start Thursday night against the Rangers due to an elbow issue.

"He’s not pitching tonight, and he might be badly hurt," Francesa told WFAN co-hosts Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts on Thursday afternoon. Pineda was rocked for five runs on eight hits over 5 2/3 innings last Friday against the Twins, which may have been a strong signal that something was wrong. The 26-year-old is probably going to undergo a range of tests on his right elbow. It could be time for the Yankees to jump into the trade market.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Tigers are "working to trade" closer Joakim Soria.

Soria would make sense for the Blue Jays -- the team the Tigers just traded David Price to -- but it doesn't appear there's anything happening on that front. Soria, 31, has a 2.85 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, and 36/11 K/BB ratio in 41 innings this season for Detroit and he is 23-for-26 in save opportunities. As usual, just about every contending club is looking for relief help.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports confirms that the Blue Jays have acquired David Price from the Tigers.

Daniel Norris, Jairo Labourt, and Matt Boyd are the three pitching prospects headed to Detroit in return, per USA Today's Bob Nightengale. There was talk Thursday morning that the Dodgers were the heavy favorite to land Price, but Toronto simply stepped up with a better package. Price, 29, has a 2.53 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and a 138/29 K/BB ratio in 146 innings this season. He'll likely be no more than a rental for the Jays, but it's a huge boost to that previously-underwhelming pitching staff.
