Brandon Moss (ankle) went hitless in three at-bats in his first rehab game with Double-A Springfield on Thursday.
He'll remain with Springfield through the weekend and is on track to be activated from the disabled list early next week if all goes well. Moss has missed most of July with a left ankle sprain.
Cubs activated INF/OF Chris Coghlan from the 15-day disabled list.
Coghlan has been out nearly all month with a right rib cage injury. He's in left field and batting leadoff Friday.
Cubs optioned INF Tommy La Stella to Triple-A Iowa.
La Stella has batted .295/.388/.457 this season, but with Chris Coghlan (rib cage) back from the disabled list there weren't going to be many at-bats available for him. He'll be back eventually.
Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that Matt Moore is "emerging as the likeliest trade candidate" from the Rays' rotation.
The Rays are listening on Jake Odorizzi and even Chris Archer, but Moore has always seemed to be the most likely to be shipped elsewhere. Swingman Erasmo Ramirez could also be traded. Moore has been frustratingly inconsistent in his time in Tampa but holds a 2.39 ERA over his last nine starts and the Rays have club options on him through 2019 totaling a reasonable $26.5 million. The Rangers and Pirates are among the teams poking around.
Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Nationals, Cardinals, Indians, Rangers and Giants are in on Andrew Miller.
He cautions, however, that the chances of Miller being traded "remain slim." The Yankees remain in the Wild Card hunt and Miller is under control through 2018 relatively cheaply, so it's going to take a whole lot to get them to change their minds about dealing the shutdown reliever.
ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Tigers are "not involved" in talks for Jonathan Lucroy.
The Tigers poked around, but they probably didn't have the necessary pieces to get Lucroy and have sense moved on. The Indians, Mets and Rangers look like the most likely landing spots for the catcher.
FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Carter Capps is also going to the Padres in the Andrew Cashner deal.
He adds that Tayron Guerrero is headed to the Marlins, too, as this trade just keeps getting bigger. Capps is currently recovering from Tommy John surgery but has been dominant when healthy, posting a 1.16 ERA and 58/7 K/BB ratio over 31 innings last season. He's a big health risk with his unorthodox delivery and big velocity but should be a shutdown reliever as long as the Padres can keep him on the mound. Guerrero has flashed triple-digit heat himself and is under team control for many years.
Mariners recalled OF Guillermo Heredia from Triple-A Tacoma.
Heredia, 25, is a Cuban defector signed during spring training and has batted .309/.399/.405 with four homers and three steals between Double- and Triple-A. He can play all three outfield spots.
