MLB.com's Mark Feinsand reports that the Rays are close to acquiring Steve Cishek from the Mariners in exchange for Erasmo Ramirez.

Jul 28 - 11:10 AM

Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports that the Mets are expected to call up first base prospect Dominic Smith "soon."

Multiple outlets reported Thursday that a Smith promotion wasn't imminent even after Lucas Duda was traded. However, the club is probably just waiting for more trade dominoes to fall with Jay Bruce, Curtis Granderson and Asdrubal Cabrera all likely to be dealt in the next few days. Top prospect Amed Rosario also figures to join Smith in the majors soon. A first-round pick in the 2013 Draft, Smith sports a .337/.390/.524 batting line with 15 homers at Triple-A Las Vegas this season. Those numbers are inflated by the environment at Vegas, but Smith is one of the top first base prospects in the game and is worth stashing now in deep formats.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that David Price had an MRI on his left elbow Thursday.

Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe first reported earlier Friday that Price's elbow is "barking again," and Evan Drellich of CSN New England hears that the left-hander will be placed on the disabled list. It's unclear at this point what exactly the MRI revealed and how long he might be sidelined. Price, of course, missed almost the first two months of the season with an elbow injury. Brian Johnson is a candidate to replace him in the rotation.

Martin Prado will have season-ending surgery on his right knee.

The operation will be performed by Dr. David Altchek. It's essentially been a lost season for Prado, who has made multiple trips to the disabled list due to hamstring issues and more recently the knee problem. The Marlins no doubt would love to trade him over the winter, but with two years and $28.5 million remaining on his contract after this year interest could be minimal.

Byron Buxton (groin, migraine) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester this weekend.

Buxton had been slated to return from a groin injury Tuesday, but he's dealt with migraine issues occasionally since his collision with the outfield wall back in early May. The Twins will get him some at-bats in the minors this weekend before hopefully activating him early next week.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Braves are "listening" to inquiries on Jim Johnson, but they're "not actively looking to move him."

Johnson is under contract for 2018 at a reasonable $4.5 million, so the Braves aren't necessarily in a rush to trade their closer, but Crasnick says of the reliever that "several teams have had scouts in to look at him." The veteran reliever hasn't had a great July, pushing his ERA for the year up to 4.10, but he boasts a nice 50/15 K/BB ratio over 41 2/3 innings and would be a quality addition for a contender, likely as a setup man. Arodys Vizcaino is a worth stash just in case the Braves do wind up dealing Johnson.

Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe reports that David Price's left elbow is "barking again."

Uh oh. It's unclear when Price might have started feeling discomfort in the elbow again, but it's worth noting that he was knocked around in his last start. He's currently scheduled to take the ball Friday against the Royals, but Shaughnessy suspects the Red Sox might place him on the disabled list instead. We should know more on Price's status soon.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said that Jedd Gyorko didn't start Thursday for the second time in three games due to fatigue.

Gyorko has batted only .159 with a .500 OPS since the All-Star break. He's on pace this season to play more than he ever has at the big league level, so it's not a surprise that he's getting a little worn down. Gyorko will be back in the lineup Friday. "You could just tell he’s beat down a little bit (by) how they’re going about his work," Matheny said. "He’s a guy who wants to grind just like every other guy we have on this team. He’s also appreciative of the fact that we see he’s a little beat down and if we can find a way to buy him a little time to get right, I think, we’re going to end up seeing benefits down the road."
