Lorenzo Cain is not in the Royals' lineup Wednesday.

He's just getting some rest. Jarrod Dyson is in center field in Cain's place.

Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports that Cole Hamels' no-trade clause "continues to be a roadblock" when it comes to the Red Sox trying to acquire him.

The Red Sox have often been connected to Hamels since last offseason, but Bradford says they "aren’t a likely landing spot" due to them being on the southpaw's no-trade list. The Astros have run into the same problem, as they've pursued Hamels heavily but it doesn't sound like the lefty wants to go there. The Dodgers and Rangers look like the favorites for Hamels at the moment.

Byron Buxton (thumb) took batting practice on Tuesday.

He'll continue to take BP this week and could go through other pregame drills by the weekend. Buxton could be sent to the Twins' spring training complex next week if he continues to progress. The young outfielder isn't expected to be activated until mid- to late-August.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon indicated Tuesday that Hector Rondon could get another shot in the closer role.

"Of course he could, and I anticipate he will at some point," Maddon said. "I think (Pedro) Strop has that kind of stuff, too. Strop and Rondon are two physically gifted, stuff-wise, closers. We have to get to the point where they are mentally able to deal with that role on a nightly basis. And the big thing is not after they've done well. How do you deal with it after you've not done so well." It's somewhat encouraging for Rendon owners, although Maddon certainly didn't commit to using him in the ninth inning. Jason Motte seems likely to be pulled off the role for now, but we could just see Maddon play the matchups.

Neil Ramirez could be placed back on the disabled list due to recurring right shoulder issues.

Ramirez hasn’t pitched since Saturday and had trouble warming up during Tuesday's game. He returned to action a month ago after missing two months with his shoulder woes and it appears he could be facing another extended absence.

Indians recalled OF Tyler Holt from Triple-A Columbus.

He's taking David Murphy's spot on the roster. Holt has spent almost all season at Columbus, hitting .286/.369/.348 with 20 steals. He'll back up at all three outfield spots.
Jul 29 - 8:54 AM

Kevin Kiermaier (eye) went hitless but had a sac fly in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

Kiermaier had to leave Monday's game after suffering a scratch in his left eye, but he'll be OK. The outfielder is hitting .245/.280/.407 with four homers and 11 steals this season.
Jul 29 - 8:47 AM

Mark Reynolds (hand) doubled in one of his three at-bats in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

Reynolds missed a couple games with a bruised left hand, but he'll be fine. He's batting .230/.312/.395 with nine homers for the Cardinals this season.
