Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Giants are hoping to finalize a contract with Pablo Sandoval on Friday.

Heyman says it's "still the expectation" that Sandoval will sign with the Giants, but he adds that the Royals and other teams have also shown interest. It will be a minor league deal for Sandoval, who was released by the Red Sox with $49 million left on his contract after hitting just .237/.286/.360 over parts of three seasons.

Braves purchased the contract of C Anthony Recker from Triple-A Gwinnett.

He'll serve as Tyler Flowers' backup this weekend while Kurt Suzuki (bereavement) is away. Recker is a .199/.283/.348 career hitter at the major league level.

Braves placed C Kurt Suzuki on the bereavement list.

Suzuki will be away for the weekend in order to attend his grandfather's funeral. Anthony Recker has replaced him on the roster.

Matt Koch is an option to make a spot start for the Diamondbacks on Saturday against the Nationals.

There's a chance Taijuan Walker will be back from paternity leave by then, but manager Torey Lovullo said they're "not counting on it." If Koch isn't needed out of the bullpen Friday, he could fill in Saturday. The righty holds an ugly 8.47 ERA over four starts at Triple-A Reno this season.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Rangers "have started reaching out to teams potentially interested in acquiring" Yu Darvish.

The Rangers aren't committed to selling yet, but they're 4.5 games out of the second American League Wild Card spot and are behind five other teams chasing the Rays and Yankees. If they do wind up selling, Darvish would immediately become the best available rental pitcher on the market. Passan lists the Astros, Brewers, Yankees, Indians, Rockies and Dodgers as teams that he could see as having interest in the impending free agent, although it's unclear at this point which, if any, of those clubs have talked to the Rangers about Darvish at this point.

Neil Walker (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Monday.

Walker will begin a short rehab assignment with Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday. He'll return to his starting spot at second base, pushing Asdrubal Cabrera to third. Walker has been on the shelf since mid-June with a torn left hamstring.
Jul 21 - 8:28 AM

Athletics recalled RHP Frankie Montas from Triple-A Nashville.

Montas holds a 6.91 ERA over 21 relief appearances with the A's this season. He'll provide length in the bullpen.
Jul 21 - 8:15 AM

Brett Gardner went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Mariners.

The Yankees had just one hit to their credit (a dunk single by Chase Headley) against Felix Hernandez until Gardner added to the total in emphatic fashion in the sixth inning, pulling a no-doubter to right to give the Yankees a 1-0 lead. Gardner has been incredibly hot-and-cold this season and it looks like he might be heating up again, having gone 5-for-15 with three extra-base hits in his last three games.
