Brad Hand allowed a run but secured his second save of the season Thursday against the Mets.

The same day Padres manager Andy Green was noncommittal about Hand's role, he pitched the ninth for a second straight game. Hand has been stellar this year, posting a 2.00 ERA and 1.04 WHIP with a 35/11 K/BB ratio over 27 innings. San Diego Union-Tribune writer Dennis Lin has said Hand is drawing trade interest, but while he's on the Padres, he's the reliever to own, it seems.

Dustin Pedroia left Thursday's game against the Rangers with left knee soreness.

Josh Rutledge replaced Pedroia at second base to begin the sixth inning. The Red Sox said his removal was "precautionary" while beat writer Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe noted that Pedroia pleaded to stay in the game. He went 0-for-2 with a walk before exiting. This is the same knee that Pedroia injured earlier this year when Manny Machado slid into him at second base.

John Wagner of the Toledo Blade reports John Hicks will be called up from Triple-A Toledo for Friday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

Teams are allowed to carry an extra player for doubleheaders but the Tigers are already bringing up Buck Farmer to start Game 1. That means a roster move must be coming. James McCann left Thursday night's game with a hand laceration and could be headed to the disabled list. This will be Hicks' third stint with the Tigers this year.

Ryan Braun left Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks with left calf tightness.

It's the same injury that put Braun on the disabled list earlier this month. Jesus Aguilar pinch-hit for Braun in the fourth inning and stayed in to play first base while Eric Thames shifted to left field. Braun fouled out in his only at-bat before exiting.

James McCann left Thursday's game against the Astros with a left hand laceration.

McCann's hand was bleeding badly after he got hit by a pitch from Mike Fiers in the fourth inning. Alex Avila pinch-ran for him and also replaced McCann behind the plate. He went 0-for-1 before exiting.

Dodgers placed LHP Luis Avilan on the 10-day disabled list with left triceps soreness.

His roster spot will be absorbed by left-hander Adam Liberatore. Avilan leads the Dodgers with six holds but sports a lethargic 1.53 WHIP over 15 innings of work. He's the 20th Dodger to be placed on the DL this year.

Dodgers activated LHP Adam Liberatore from the 10-day disabled list.

He'll take the roster spot left by Luis Avilan, who is headed to the disabled list with left triceps soreness. Liberatore sat out two weeks with a strained groin. He's allowed one run in 1 1/3 innings for the Dodgers this year.

According to Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Brad Hand is "drawing keen interest" around the league.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports filed a similar report last week. Per Lin, the rebuilding Padres are "likely to consider just about anything" in trade talks, just as they did a year ago when they dealt Matt Kemp, Drew Pomeranz, Fernando Rodney and James Shields. Hand would make a ton of sense for the Nationals, who are in desperate need of bullpen help. We're guessing Hand will be wearing a new uniform by July 31.
