Jason Vargas went only four innings, allowing two runs, in an loss to the Yankees on Tuesday.

Both runs came in the first inning on a Mark Teixeira home run. He allowed four hits and a walk while striking out six. Vargas needed 76 pitches to get through four innings and did not take the mound in the fifth. The Royals were just being a bit cautious as Vargas hadn't pitched since May 5 due to a flexor strain in his left elbow. He'll take a 5.16 ERA, a 1.45 WHIP, and a 20/11 K/BB ratio in 29 2/3 innings into a start at Wrigley Field against the Cubs.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that trade talks between the Dodgers and Braves involving Juan Uribe and Alberto Callaspo are "back on."

It was reported earlier Tuesday that the deal was looking likely to fall through, but talks have apparently heated back up and it looks like something could get done soon. Rosenthal says it would be a six-player trade, although it's unclear at this time who would be involved other than Uribe and Callaspo.

Adam Warren evened his record at 3-3 after holding the Royals to one run in 6 1/3 innings on Tuesday.

Warren now has three consecutive quality starts following Tuesday's outing. The lone run scored on a Paulo Orlando home run in the sixth inning, accounting for one of the mere two hits he surrendered on the evening. He also struck out five without issuing a walk. The right-hander has a 3.91 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and a 32/18 K/BB ratio over 50 2/3 innings. Warren will take on the Athletics in a road start next.

Mark Teixeira went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a two-run double in Tuesday's win over the Royals.

Teixeira got the party started early, driving a two-run home run in the first inning off of Jason Vargas. He tacked on a two-run double in the fifth and later scored as the Yankees went up 5-0. Teixeira has shown no signs of slowing down as May nears its end. He's batting .243/.365/.588 with 14 home runs and 35 RBI.
May 26 - 9:45 PM

Mike Fiers will start Wednesday's game versus the Giants on three days' rest.

Fiers threw 86 pitches over five innings on Saturday against the Braves. The Brewers still need a starter to replace Wily Peralta (oblique), but they've decided to delay a decision for now. Taylor Jungmann, Tyler Thornburg and Tyler Cravy could be considered for a call-up on Sunday.
May 26 - 9:34 PM

Samuel Deduno (back) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday.

He was cleared for game work after getting through another bullpen session Tuesday with no issues. Deduno should be ready for activation sometime next week.
May 26 - 9:28 PM

Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that Phil Coke has received interest from at least six teams.

Coke has been placed on release waivers and will officially become a free agent on Thursday. It sounds like he could land a big league contract despite posting a 6.30 ERA over 16 appearances before the Cubs designated him for assignment.
May 26 - 9:20 PM

The Rangers are considering activating Ross Detwiler (shoulder) from the disabled list to start on Saturday against the Red Sox.

Out with left shoulder inflammation, Detwiler threw an extended bullpen session on Tuesday that went well. The Rangers would ideally like to give him at least one rehab start, but Phil Klein was awful in his last start so the club is considering bringing Detwiler back early. "We continue to assess where we’re at," manager Jeff Banister said.
