Michael Taylor (oblique) played catch in the outfield on Wednesday.

Taylor could start taking some light swings before the end of the week. He was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right oblique strain just before the All-Star break. Currently up 11.5 games in the NL East, the Nationals have the luxury to allow Taylor some time to recover. He could potentially rejoin the team in early August so long as his rehab continues to progress smoothly.

Stephen Piscotty (groin) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Low-A Peoria on Thursday.

Piscotty will be rehabbing at Low-A at least through the weekend. The initial hope was that he would be activated from the disabled list earlier this week, but he was not quite ready to return to the team when first eligible. Piscotty has been out of action since July 15 with a right groin strain.

Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports that "about eight teams" remain interested in Addison Reed as a trade piece.

The Rays, Dodgers and Red Sox are among the teams that have reportedly kicked the tires on potentially acquiring Reed. There is no smoke around an imminent trade at this juncture. In 48 appearances this season, the right-hander is 30-for-33 in save chances and has pitched to a 2.63 ERA with a 48/6 K/BB ratio.

Odubel Herrera is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros.

Aaron Altherr is playing center and hitting fifth in Herrera's place. Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said that Herrera will also sit when the team takes on the Braves on Friday, but says that this two-game rest is not a benching.

Todd Frazier hit his first home run in a Yankees uniform as part of Wednesday's 9-5 defeat of the Reds.

Frazier took Tony Cingrani deep to left in the Yankees' five-run bottom of the seventh inning. He also singled in the bottom of the third, finishing 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored. Frazier is 5-for-21 (.238) since being acquired from the White Sox last Wednesday.

Brewers placed RHP Matt Garza on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to July 23, with a right lower leg strain.

Garza had been scheduled to start against the Nationals on Thursday, but that is no longer in the cards. The Brewers have yet to announce a replacement starter. There is no current timetable for Garza's return. Prior to landing on the disabled list, he had been pitching to a 3.83 ERA in 15 starts.

Adam Duvall swatted his 21st home run of the year on Wednesday afternoon against the Yankees.

It was a three-run bomb in the top of the eighth inning off Yankees right-hander Luis Cessa. Duvall finished 1-for-4 with three RBI and one run scored in the loss.
