ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Cubs, Yankees, Red Sox, Giants, Astros, Phillies and Braves are among the teams in the mix for Zach Britton.

Crasnick says the Orioles are "barreling ahead" with Britton trade talks now that the Manny Machado deal is finish. Britton's velocity and effectiveness has picked up recently and as a result the interest in him has perked up, as well. The left-handed reliever is making $12 million this season and is slated to hit free agency this winter.

Red Sox signed RHP Mark Montgomery to a minor league contract.

Montgomery was released by the Tigers earlier this month after posting a 1.98 ERA and 17/8 K/BB ratio over 13 2/3 innings at Triple-A Toledo. Per Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com, Montgomery is dealing with a non-UCL elbow injury and might not pitch again this season, but it's a two-year deal so the move is more geared toward 2019.

Jose Martinez is not in the Cardinals' lineup Friday.

He's now been benched in all three of interim manager Mike Shildt's lineups and in four straight overall. Martinez has been excellent at the plate this season, but the Cards have had enough of his defense and it appears he'll need a trade to see everyday at-bats again. Matt Carpenter is at first base and Jedd Gyorko is at third again Friday.

Clay Buchholz (oblique) is slated to rejoin the Diamondbacks' rotation on Tuesday against the Cubs.

Buchholz struck out six while yielding two runs over six innings of work in a rehab start with High-A Visalia on Thursday, clearing the way for his return to the big club. He's taking Shelby Miller's (elbow) spot in the rotation.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Tigers are "focusing their efforts" on trading Francisco Liriano, Mike Fiers and Leonys Martin and Michael Fulmer and Nicholas Castellanos "are more on the back burner."

Crasnick adds that general manager Al Avila "will listen, but a team will have to make a big push to land" Fulmer or Castellanos. Fulmer is arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter, while Castellanos will become a free agent after next season. It's hard to imagine Detroit getting much, if anything, for Liriano, Fiers or Martin.

MLB.com's TR Sullivan writes that the Rangers are unlikely to trade Adrian Beltre "unless circumstances change drastically."

Beltre has been mentioned as a possible target for contenders, but he would have the right to veto any deal. It sounds like the Rangers would rather just hang on to him this season for his clubhouse value and attempt to re-sign him for 2019. Beltre has indicated that if he decides to play next season, he wants it to be for the Rangers.

Harrison Bader (hamstring) was available to play Thursday.

Bader exited Sunday's game with what the team called a mild left knee hyperextension, although the outfielder said the pain was more in his hamstring. Either way, it appears that he's OK after resting over the All-Star break. The Cardinals seem committed to giving Dexter Fowler another shot in right field under interim manager Mike Shildt, so Bader might not play a ton, at least not against righties.
