MLB.com's Jon Morosi reports that the Phillies are currently the "most likely destination" for Manny Machado.

Morosi says the Phillies are willing to include pitching prospect Adonis Medina -- who is ranked by MLB.com as the No. 2 player in their system -- in a deal for Machado, which looks to have catapulted them into the lead for the infielder's services. Jon Heyman of Fancred, among others, has reported that the Orioles are close to trading their star, although Machado will be representing Baltimore during Tuesday's All-Star Game. The Dodgers and Brewers are looking like the two other clubs most hot on Machado's trail, although it appears they might have some catching up to do.

Dodgers sent LHP Edward Paredes outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Paredes cleared waivers after being designated for assignment. He'll remain in the organization as left-handed relief depth.

Mariners signed C Cameron Rupp to a minor league contract.

Mike Zunino (ankle) is expected back for the start of the second half, but the M's decided that they needed a little more catching depth, anyway. Rupp has batted just .226/.316/.446 at the Triple-A level this season, but he has hit 11 homers and has plenty of big league experience. He could eventually earn the backup job behind Zunino.

Bryce Harper defeated Kyle Schwarber in the finals to win the 2018 All-Star Game Home Run Derby.

You didn't think anyone else was going to win at Nationals Park, did you? Harper smacked 13 home runs in the first round to eliminate Freddie Freeman and another 13 in the second round to take down Max Muncy. Schwarber batted first in the finals and set the bar high with 18 bombs, and it looked like it might hold up after Harper started slowly. However, Harper tied Schwarber with a flurry of dingers in the final 90 seconds and took advantage of 30 seconds of bonus time by banging one out to dead center field to win it. He became the third player ever to win the Derby in his home park.

Red Sox optioned 1B Sam Travis to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Travis was only up for the weekend with Andrew Benintendi on the bereavement list. He's 3-for-16 at the plate in the majors this season.

Red Sox activated OF Andrew Benintendi from the bereavement leave list.

Benintendi missed the final three games before the All-Star break but will be back for the start of the second half. He put up a nifty .297/.380/.517 batting line with 14 home runs and 17 stolen bases in the first half.
Jul 16 - 8:33 PM

Nick Burdi (elbow) struck out the side for High-A Bradenton on Monday in his first appearance since last May's Tommy John surgery.

Burdi needed just 13 pitches, throwing 10 of them for strikes. There's no word on what the velocity was for Burdi, who touched triple digits before the operation. The Pirates are hoping that he can make an impact sometime after the All-Star break.

Rays activated INF Christian Arroyo from the 10-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Durham.

Arroyo returned to action Sunday for Durham after missing a couple days with a sore left hand and the Rays have decided to leave him in the minors for a while. The 23-year-old has hit only .181/.224/.278 in 19 games for Durham this season.
