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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Giants shortstop prospect Christian Arroyo went 4-for-5 for short season-A Salem-Keizer on Monday.
Arroyo is now hitting .477/.500/.523 during an 11-game hitting steak, raising his season line to .329/.378/.421. The 19-year old was the 25th overall pick in the 2013 draft, and has been exclusively playing shortstop during his time in the Northwest League. Arroyo likely will spend the rest of his season with Salem-Keizer, and return to Low-A Augusta for 2015.
