R.A. Dickey picked up his fifth win after limiting the Phillies to two unearned runs in eight innings on Wednesday.

Russell Martin and Danny Valencia made errors which led to both runs scoring, one in each of the seventh and eighth innings. Dickey scattered seven hits and a walk while striking out four. He's limited the opposition to two or fewer runs in four consecutive starts, lowering his ERA to 4.27 with a 1.28 WHIP and an 84/47 K/BB ratio over 137 innings. The knuckleballer squares off at home against the Twins next.

Troy Tulowitzki made his Blue Jays debut and went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a home run, three runs scored and three RBI in a win against the Phillies on Wednesday.

What a way to make a debut. He struck out in his first at-bat with his new club, but made up for it with a two-run home run in the third inning. He added an RBI double in the sixth. Tulowitzki now has 13 home runs on the year with 56 RBI along with a .305 average. The Rogers Center is friendly to right-handed hitters, so the move away from Coors Field may not hurt his numbers all that much.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that Jose Peraza would head to the Dodgers in the rumored three-team deal with the Marlins.

As it currently stands, the Dodgers would receive Peraza, Alex Wood and Jim Johnson from the Braves plus Mat Latos and Michael Morse from the Marlins. The Braves would receive Hector Olivera, Zach Bird and a compensation pick, while the Marlins would acquire three low-level minor league pitchers. There are still hurdles to clear, so don't expect anything to be finalized until Thursday at the earliest.

TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Rangers are getting close to acquiring Cole Hamels from the Phillies.

While the two sides are reportedly at the finish line of a potential deal, there has been no word as to what the Phillies would receive in return. Sullivan expects a deal to be finalized on Thursday.

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Dodgers, Yankees, Giants and Blue Jays are the four main teams vying to acquire David Price from the Tigers.

All four teams have been in contact with the Tigers. In a move that came as a surprise to virtually no one, Dave Dombrowski announced Wednesday that the Tigers would listen to offers on their impending free agents, which immediately added another elite hurler to the trade market. With four big market clubs in the bidding, expect the Tigers to net a decent haul for the All-Star left-hander.
Jul 29 - 9:46 PM

Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports that the Blue Jays have spoken to the Tigers about David Price on Wednesday.

It doesn't come as a surprise, as they had been rumored to have interest in the All-Star southpaw and the Tigers officially announced their stance as sellers on Wednesday. Expect talks to continue as several clubs vie to acquire one of the top arms in the market.

Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-4 and swiped his first base of the season in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.

Lucroy was one of the few bright spots in the Brewers offense on a day where they were shutout by Jake Peavy and company. The hard-hitting backstop is now hitting .257/.317/.350 with three homers and 22 RBI in 61 games on the season.
Jul 29 - 9:34 PM

Mike Fiers logged a quality start in Wednesday's loss to the Giants, allowing only two runs on four hits over six-plus frames.

The right-hander racked up five strikeouts on the afternoon while walking one. The two teams had been locked in a scoreless tie heading into the seventh inning, where Fiers allowed the first two men to reach before turning the game over to the bullpen, who subsequently allowed the two runners to score. A popular name in trade rumblings, Fiers will take on the Padres at home on Monday if he remains a Brewer through the deadline.
