Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports that the Orioles and Blue Jays are the leaders in the pursuit of Melvin Upton.

The interest in Upton has certainly intensified in the past day or so, and it's looking increasingly likely that he'll be wearing a new uniform in August. While a park shift away from Petco Park could seem like a boon to his fantasy value, he hasn't handled changes of scenery well in the past, and isn't likely to land with a manager as willing to run as Andy Green has been this season.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Saturday that Russell Martin (knee) is feeling much better.

Martin sat out Friday's game due to a minor knee injury. He's out again on Saturday, but that's a product of knuckleballer R.A. Dickey being on the hill for the Jays. Look for Martin to be back behind the dish for Sunday's series finale against the Mariners.

Shawn O'Malley is starting at shortstop and batting ninth for the Mariners on Saturday.

He gets the challenge of facing Jays' knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. With Ketel Marte on the disabled list, the door is open for O'Malley to see some extra time in the infield over the next week or so.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Orioles are pursuing Andrew Cashner from the Padres but that it isn't related to any potential trade for Melvin Upton.

The O's are looking at both Padres in separate deals, not as a package play. The O's are in desperate need of an upgrade in their starting rotation, and the hard-throwing right-hander could be just the guy for the job.

Mariners recalled LHP David Rollins from Triple-A Tacoma.

Rollins returns to the Mariners to provide an extra arm from the left side in the bullpen. As they have been so many times this season, expect his stay with the M's to be relatively short.
Jul 23 - 9:20 AM

Mariners placed SS Ketel Marte on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 20, with mononucleosis.

Marte has already missed a week of action with the illness, so while they wait on him to get well they'll utilize his roster spot elsewhere. David Rollins was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move to provide bullpen depth.
Jul 23 - 9:20 AM

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Blue Jays have discussed Melvin Upton and Andrew Cashner with the Padres.

Rosenthal notes that it's unclear if the Jays would have interest in just Upton if they can't get Cashner. The Padres seem to be pitting potential suitors against one another in an effort to drive up the price on their available pieces. Where there's this much smoke, there's usually fire, so don't be surprised to see some sort of deal get done in the next couple of days.

Nationals signed RHP Justin De Fratus to a minor league contract.

The right-hander was acquired by the Rangers in mid-June, but designated for assignment shortly after. The 28-year-old owns a 2.89 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 25/16 K/BB ratio across 37 1/3 innings at Triple-A this season.
