Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Mets are ready to listen to trade offers for "virtually everyone" on their roster.

Rosenthal notes that the Mets would understandably prefer to keep their young, controllable talent, but he also adds that the club is more open to moving Noah Syndergaard (under team control through 2021) than staff ace Jacob deGrom (under team control through 2020). Obviously it would take a huge haul for them to part with either pitcher, but they are keeping an open mind. Probably the most realistic name to be moved is closer Jeurys Familia, who is due to become a free agent following the season. Asdrubal Cabrera also makes sense as a possible trade chip for New York.

Mariners optioned RHP Rob Whalen to Triple-A Tacoma.

Juan Nicasio has been activated from the disabled list in a corresponding roster move. Whalen was just called up late last week and allowed just one hit in four scoreless innings during his lone appearance. He should get another shot down the line.

Mariners optioned C David Freitas to Triple-A Tacoma.

Chris Herrmann will take his spot as Mike Zunino's backup. Freitas is batting .217/.299/.283 with four doubles and three RBI over 23 games with the big club this season.

Mariners activated C/INF/OF Chris Herrmann from the 10-day disabled list.

Herrmann went 2-for-12 (.167) with a double over five games during a rehab stint with Triple-A Tacoma. The 30-year-old appeared in just one game with the Mariners in late May before going down with a right rib cage strain. David Freitas was sent down in a corresponding roster move, so Herrmann will serve as Mike Zunino's backup.

Mariners activated RHP Juan Nicasio from the 10-day disabled list.

Nicasio had no issues with his right knee coming out of a bullpen session over the weekend. The 31-year-old returns to a 5.34 ERA over 30 appearances. Despite the shaky results, he owns a solid 37/2 K/BB ratio over 28 2/3 innings.

According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the Yankees and Mariners are both expressing interest in Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ.

The Blue Jays are coming off a surprising three-game sweep of the Nationals, but they're buried in fourth place in the American League East standings and are likely to launch into selling mode within the next several weeks, ahead of the July 31 deadline. Happ has seemingly emerged as Toronto's most valuable trade chip with Josh Donaldson battling health issues. The veteran left-hander holds a 3.48 ERA, 1.065 WHIP, and 94/25 K/BB ratio in 82 2/3 innings (14 starts) this season. He's making $13 million in the final year of a three-year, $36 million deal.

Roberto Osuna's first court date in connection with his sexual assault charge will be "a largely procedural hearing" and the Blue Jays closer will not attend it, per Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca.

That hearing is scheduled for Monday afternoon at the Old City Hall courthouse in Toronto. Criminal defense lawyer Domenic Basile will appear on Osuna's behalf for pre-trial discussions that "will set the stage for the next court hearing, possibly in two or three weeks," writes Davidi. Osuna has been on Major League Baseball's administrative leave list since his arrest May 8 for allegedly assaulting a woman. A resolution to this case is clearly not imminent.

Tigers prospect right-hander Alex Faedo has been promoted to Double-A Erie.

It's well deserved. Faedo was selected 18th overall in last year's draft, but the Tigers shut him down after he was used heavily by the University of Florida. The wait has been worth it, though, as the 22-year-old put up a solid 3.10 ERA and 51/13 K/BB ratio in 61 innings across 12 starts with High-A Lakeland to begin his pro career. He looks like a promising building block for rebuilding Detroit.
