Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com hears from a source that Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo worked out for the Phillies on Monday.

Jul 29 - 2:39 PM

Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network on Sirius XM hears that the Blue Jays, Mariners, Brewers, Cardinals, Dodgers, Orioles, and Marlins are the teams that are "in" on Red Sox left-hander Jon Lester.

With this many teams involved, it's increasingly likely that the Red Sox will find a deal to their liking. Lester is due to become a free agent after the season, so teams will be paying for a rental, but he's capable of putting a contender over the top. The 30-year-old has a 2.52 ERA and 149/32 K/BB ratio over 143 innings this season.
Jul 29 - 2:33 PM

Mariners prospect third baseman D.J. Peterson (wrist) could return to action as soon as Tuesday.

Peterson left Saturday's game with a bruised left wrist, but it's not a major concern. The 22-year-old has batted .318/.375/.586 with 23 home runs and 89 RBI over 91 games this season between High-A and Double-A.
Jul 29 - 2:30 PM

Dustin Ackley will bat leadoff Tuesday against the Indians.

This is his first start out of the leadoff spot this season. The struggling James Jones has been dropped down to ninth in the order.
Jul 29 - 2:22 PM

Blue Jays optioned LHP Rob Rasmussen to Triple-A Buffalo.

The move clears a spot for newly-acquired Danny Valencia on the active roster. Rasmussen owns a 3.18 ERA over 10 appearances with the Blue Jays this season and should get another shot with the big club down the stretch.
Jul 29 - 2:15 PM

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports hears from a club official that the Diamondbacks aren't moving Wade Miley.

The Marlins are among the teams who have checked in about Miley, but the Diamondbacks are inclined to keep him. The 27-year-old southpaw owns a 4.34 ERA and 131/42 K/BB ratio over 139 innings this season. He'll be arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter and is under team control through 2017.
Jul 29 - 2:04 PM

Buster Olney of ESPN.com writes that the "perception" around the Indians is that they are ready to move both Asdrubal Cabrera and Justin Masterson.

The Indians are just four games out in the AL Wild Card race and 6 1/2 games back in the AL Central, but they could move one or both if the right offer comes along. Cabrera and Masterson are both set to become free agents this offseason.
Jul 29 - 1:46 PM

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish hears from a major league source that there is "still a good chance" that the Padres deal Joaquin Benoit before Thursday's trade deadline.

The Padres have already traded Huston Street this month, but they could also move Benoit if the right offer comes along. The Tigers are likely out as a possibility after the Joakim Soria deal, but teams like the Pirates and Indians could be in the mix. Benoit is owed $8 million next season while his contract includes an $8 million vesting option or $1.5 million buyout for 2016, so the Padres have no sense of urgency to move him. Dale Thayer could take over the closer role if Benoit ends up elsewhere.
