USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports there are three teams "in on" Marlins closer A.J. Ramos.

Miami is just about to trade setup man David Phelps, and Ramos could very well follow him out the door. The 30-year-old right-hander has struggled a bit in 2017, but he boasts a 2.81 career ERA and 10.5 career K/9, and he's racked up 89 saves since the beginning of the 2015 season. Ramos is under control, via arbitration, through 2018.

David Phelps to the Mariners is "at the finish line," according to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post adds that the trade is expected to be completed sometime on Thursday. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported early this morning that the Marlins were not enamored with the available options in the Mariners' minor league system, but it seems the two clubs have found a match. Or are very close to finding one. Phelps, 30, boasts a 2.69 ERA and 11.1 K/9 over his last 133 2/3 innings dating back to the beginning of the 2016 season and he is under contractual control through 2018.

A.J. Pollock is getting the day off Thursday against the Reds.

Gregor Blanco will start in center field and bat eighth, with Daniel Descalso taking a turn at leadoff. It's just a routine day of maintenance for Pollock.

J.D. Martinez (hand) is not in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Thursday.

Martinez got hit by a pitch Wednesday in his second-ever at-bat with Arizona and suffered a left hand contusion. X-rays turned up negative, so he should be good to go in a day or two. Chris Herrmann is starting in right field and Daniel Descalso is in left field on Thursday afternoon in Cincinnati.

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Matt Koch from Triple-A Reno.

Koch has surrendered 16 earned runs in 17 innings this season at the Triple-A level, and seven runs in 11 innings at High-A. The 26-year-old right-hander won't be up in the majors for very long.
Jul 20 - 10:23 AM

Diamondbacks placed RHP Taijuan Walker on the paternity leave list.

Patrick Corbin is starting in Walker's place on Thursday afternoon against the Reds. The right-hander should be back with the Diamondbacks sometime this weekend, after welcoming a child into the world.

According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the Mariners are "fairly close" on a trade for Marlins right-hander David Phelps.

MLB.com's Mark Feinsand was first to report word of the Mariners' growing interest in Phelps late Wednesday night. The 30-year-old reliever hasn't been as effective this season as he was in 2016, but he would still fit nicely into a setup role in Seattle and he is controllable through 2018. It sounds like there could be something official soon, though FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal tweeted early Thursday morning that the Marlins are "not in love" with the offerings in the Mariners' farm system.
Jul 20 - 10:17 AM

Xander Bogaerts (hand) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup Thursday against the Blue Jays.

Bogaerts missed a couple of games with a small sprain of a joint in his right hand. He is starting at shortstop and hitting sixth on Thursday afternoon versus Toronto left-hander Francisco Liriano.
