Kris Bryant (finger) could miss the entire weekend series against the Cardinals.

X-rays on Bryant's left pinkie came back clean after he was injured on a head-first slide Wednesday, but he's not feeling 100 percent. It doesn't appear at this point, however, that he'll require a disabled list stint. Javy Baez is at third base Friday, and Tommy La Stella is also a candidate to pick up starts.

Jumbo Diaz has elected free agency.

Diaz cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and will look for a gig elsewhere rather than accept an outright assignment. The big righty holds a 5.70 ERA this season and will likely have to settle for a minor league contract.

The Cardinals will recall Carson Kelly from Triple-A Memphis prior to Friday's game against the Cubs.

A corresponding move isn't known yet, but designating the .155/.277/.197-hitting Eric Fryer seems likely. Considered by most to be the top catching prospect in the game, Kelly has batted .283/.375/.459 with 10 homers and 41 RBI this season at Memphis. As intriguing a prospect as Kelly is, though, he's not going to have fantasy value while playing behind Yadier Molina.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Blue Jays "have gotten some feelers" on Jose Bautista.

There are some hurdles to a potential trade, though, the first of which is that Bautista is hitting a disappointing .227/.340/.402 with 16 home runs this season and just .197/.312/.338 since June 1. He also has 10-and-5 rights and thus can veto any deal. However, while the Jays no doubt would have to pick up a chunk of what remains of his $18 million salary for this season to make a trade work, some contender might think it's worth taking a shot that Bautista can slug for a couple months for them. It shouldn't cost too much to acquire him.

Kris Bryant (finger) is not in the Cubs' lineup Friday.

Bryant managed to avoid a major injury when he hurt his left pinkie on a head-first slide Wednesday, but he remains sore. Javy Baez is filling in at third base.
Jul 21 - 10:31 AM

Alex Reyes (elbow) began a throwing program Wednesday.

Reyes is simply making throws from one knee at this point, but it's a big first step as he works his way back from February Tommy John surgery. The young right-hander is expected to be ready for the beginning of next season.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Indians have expressed interest in Asdrubal Cabrera.

It sounds like he could be more of a fallback option if they're not able to work out a trade for a marquee player. Cabrera, of course, began his career with the Indians and would offer them some versatility. The 31-year-old impending free agent has batted .250/.333/.398 with nine homers in 70 games this season.
Jul 21 - 9:58 AM

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Cubs have inquired with the Rangers on the availability of Yu Darvish.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports previously reported that the Rangers were trying to gauge interest in Darvish, and it appears the Cubs are one of the first teams to have checked in. It could just be due diligence, although the Cubs have been connected to other starters, as well, even after acquiring Jose Quintana, so it appears they're interested in further upgrading their rotation.
