Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Royals are trying to package Ian Kennedy in a Wade Davis trade, with the Dodgers "a strong match."

Los Angeles badly wants Davis, as reported earlier by Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, and the club has deep enough pockets to comfortably take on what remains on the ill-advised five-year, $70 million free agent contract that Kennedy received this winter from Kansas City. Kennedy has been a big disappointment in his first year with the Royals, currently holding a 4.41 ERA through 20 starts. He could eat some innings for a contender, but that's probably about it.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Orioles are "trying hard" for Andrew Cashner.

Baltimore badly needs rotation help -- Ubaldo Jimenez and his 7.38 ERA are starting Thursday against the Twins -- and Cashner is almost certain to be dealt somewhere by the August 1 trade deadline. Rosenthal says the O's are not necessarily the front-runner for the 29-year-old right-hander, with the Rangers, Marlins, and Giants also lurking. Cashner, an impending free agent, owns a 4.76 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 67/30 K/BB ratio in 79 1/3 innings this season.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Cardinals are "said to have looked at Joe Smith."

St. Louis is on a wide-reaching search for relief help with Trevor Rosenthal falling apart this summer. Smith isn't the most exciting name on the market and he owns an underwhelming 4.08 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, and 24/13 K/BB ratio in 35 1/3 innings this season. The 32-year-old impending free agent right-hander should come rather cheap.

Blue Jays signed C Erik Kratz to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Buffalo.

Kratz was designated for assignment by the Pirates on July 19 and elected to become a free agent a few days alter. He was 6-for-56 (.107) in Pittsburgh and is no more than a depth signing for the Blue Jays.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Dodgers are showing interest in Royals closer Wade Davis.

Los Angeles reportedly made a run at Aroldis Chapman before he landed with the Cubs. Davis hasn't been as dominant this year as he has been in years past, but the 30-year-old right-hander still ranks among the top relievers in baseball with his 1.60 ERA in 33 2/3 innings. It's not clear what a trade for an elite late-inning arm would do for Kenley Jansen's status as the Dodgers' closer. He has 30 saves this season and a 1.41 ERA in 44 2/3 innings.

Carlos Gonzalez said he's open to shifting to first base for the Rockies.

That might be where the Rockies have to put him next year -- or perhaps down the stretch this year -- if they don't trade him ahead of the August 1 deadline. David Dahl arrived in the majors this week, prospect Raimel Tapia is going to arrive eventually, and Gerardo Parra and Charlie Blackmon are both locked in for the next couple of years. CarGo is under contract for $20 million in 2017 and can then become a free agent. "We have some really good outfielders, and prospects coming up," Gonzalez said Wednesday. "So if (moving to first base) is something that will be for our benefit, that’s something that I would definitely do. I love playing in Denver, I feel at home playing there."

Desmond Jennings (hamstring) was scratched from what should have been his second rehab game Wednesday due to a stiff neck.

The hope is that he can play Thursday night and remain on track to rejoin the Rays early next week. Jennings, out since July 1 with a left hamstring strain, went 1-for-4 in his rehab debut Tuesday with High-A Charlotte.

Brad Boxberger made his second appearance in as many days Wednesday with High-A Charlotte.

Boxberger faced two batters, walking one and striking out the other. He is on track to rejoin the Rays' bullpen on Friday after missing nearly two full months with a left oblique strain. Boxberger also had an abdominal injury before that and has been limited to just one appearance this season at the major league level.
