FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Tyson Ross has been the "focus" of the Cubs' trade talks with the Padres.

The Padres appear willing to trade anyone from their rotation, but Ross would probably be the least likely to be dealt since he's under team control through 2017. The Cubs have also expressed interest in Ian Kennedy and there's been some speculation that they could consider James Shields.

Yadier Molina left Monday's game against the Reds in the fifth inning because he was "not feeling well."

It's the vaguest of injury designations. Worth noting is that Molina looked a bit woozy after taking a foul tip to the mask earlier in the game, although he did double and score after that incident. It's possible he just got a little overheated on a hot night in St. Louis.

Ryan Braun was a late scratch from Monday's game with lower back tightness.

He should be considered day-to-day. Gerardo Parra moved over to right field in Braun's spot, with Khris Davis entering the lineup in left field.

Kevin Kiermaier left Monday's game against the Tigers with a minor abrasion of his left eye.

It's unclear how it happened, but Kiermaier should be alright in a day or two. He had an RBI double in three plate appearances before exiting.

Jay Bruce - OF - Reds

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Angels are still searching for a left-handed hitting outfielder.

They picked up Shane Victorino from the Red Sox on Monday, but he's viewed as a depth guy that will start some versus lefties. Heyman lists Jay Bruce, David Murphy and Ben Revere as players that the Angels have been interested in. They've also been connected to Gerardo Parra.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Monday that Kyle Schwarber could start seeing more playing time in left field.

He played one inning in left field on Sunday and has been working on outfield drills on days he's not starting at catcher. The outfield isn't totally foreign to Schwarber, as he played left field 36 times in the minors last season. "You saw him play one minute of outfield [Sunday]," Maddon said. "You might see him out there more often as we move along." Schwarber has only been starting three out of every five games at catcher, sitting out on days when Jon Lester and Jake Arrieta pitch. Fantasy owners would obviously love to see his bat in the lineup more often.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Astros "remain in the thick" of the bidding for Cole Hamels and are "making a big push" for the left-hander.

The Astros acquired Scott Kazmir last week but apparently aren't done in their search for frontline pitching. Houston is on Hamels' no-trade list and it's been reported previously that he might not be willing to waive it in order to go to the Astros. The Rangers are viewed by most as the favorites at the moment to land Hamels.
Jul 27 - 9:03 PM

Mariners acquired RHP J.C. Ramirez from the Diamondbacks in exchange for cash or future considerations.

Ramirez was removed from Arizona's 40-man roster last month and is now getting a fresh start in another organization. He holds a 4.11 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 11/4 K/BB ratio over 15 1/3 innings in the majors this season.
