According to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, the reported trade sending Mat Latos and Michael Morse to the Dodgers "could be falling apart."

Latos and Morse are still in the Marlins' clubhouse and Marlins GM-turned-manager Dan Jennings told the media on Wednesday afternoon that he hadn't heard about any trade being close. Word is the Dodgers are trying to flip Morse to a third team, so that could be the holdup. There's also talk of this being a medical thing. It's going to be a crazy 48 hours as the July 31 trade deadline approaches.

Jon Lester limited the Rockies to two runs over eight innings Wednesday in the Cubs' 3-2 victory.

Lester struck out 14 and walked just one in the dominant outing on a hot, sunny day at Wrigley Field. The left-hander has been on a roll for the last couple of months, now boasting a 3.26 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 136/32 K/BB ratio in 132 2/3 total innings. He will get the Pirates on the road next time out.

Hector Rondon notched picked up his 13th save of the season Wednesday afternoon against the Rockies.

Rondon walked one but struck out two of the four batters he faced in a mostly clean ninth frame. Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Tuesday evening that Rondon could reclaim closer duties at some point, and it looks like we may already be headed in that direction. Maddon had been using a ninth-inning committee.

Anthony Rizzo cranked a two-run homer in the Cubs' win over the Rockies on Wednesday.

It was his first home run since July 7. Rizzo has been in an offensive rut, but he still owns a shiny .279/.393/.500 batting line on the season. And he's now up to 17 home runs and 53 RBI in 99 games.
Jul 29 - 5:02 PM

Andrew McCutchen went 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI in Wednesday's 10-4 rout of the Twins.

McCutchen launched a two-run homer in the top of the fifth inning and an RBI single in the top of the sixth. He's batting .290/.386/.490 with 14 home runs and 64 RBI in 97 games this season for the Bucs.
Jul 29 - 5:00 PM

Ervin Santana was blasted for eight earned runs in 5 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Pirates.

Yikes. Santana entered the afternoon outing with a 2.60 ERA in four starts since returning from his PED suspension and he left it with a 3.78 ERA. The 32-year-old right-hander will try to get back on track next week in a road outing against the Blue Jays.

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Rangers are "now the clear-cut favorite" to land Cole Hamels.

Nightengale says the Dodgers prefer David Price, and the Tigers made it public Wednesday that they're going to begin selling parts. Hamels is also drawing interest from the Astros, but word from Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle is that the Astros expect the ace left-hander to land elsewhere. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported Wednesday afternoon that the Giants are "fading" in the Hamels chase. It's all coming together for Texas.

Rangers recalled RHP Jon Edwards from Triple-A Round Rock.

Edwards has posted very good numbers this season at the Triple-A level, but he has struggled mightily in the majors. The right-hander will pitch in middle relief.
