Latest Headlines

Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Dodgers are talking to the Astros about a trade for Carlos Lee, not Jed Lowrie.

ESPN's Buster Olney previously reported that the two sides were talking about a deal that would send Lowrie to the Dodgers for prospect right-handers Zach Lee and Garrett Gould. It's still possible Lee and Gould are involved in the deal, but the Dodgers are apparently targeting "El Caballo" to help their scuffling offense. Lee, an impending free agent, has a partial no-trade clause and would have to approve a deal to the Dodgers. He's owed roughly $9 million for the rest of the season.

Jorge De La Rosa struck out 11 batters while allowing two runs -- one earned -- over 7 1/3 innings in the Rockies' 6-4 win over the Nationals on Wednesday.

De La Rosa allowed eight hits without walking a batter, and the left-hander hasn't allowed more than two runs in any of his four starts this month. The strong outing raised his record to 11-6 with a 4.19 ERA through 21 starts. He'll try to continue his strong stretch of starts when he faces the Cubs at Wrigley next week.

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said Wednesday that first base will be a "day-to-day thing" going forward.

It's a nice way of saying Ryan Howard has lost his grip on the starting first base job. Howard and Darin Ruf will platoon based on matchups and who is swinging the hotter bat, and it appears Sandberg is resolute in his willingness to see what Ruf can do over the next two months. CSN Philly's Jim Salisbury reports the Phillies have considered the possibility of releasing Howard if he can't be moved in a trade. The Phillies owe Howard, who is hitting .224/.305/.377, $60 million guaranteed over the next three years.

Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI as the Tigers pounded the Diamondbacks 11-5 on Wednesday afternoon at Arizona's Chase Field.

Cabrera singled and scored in the top of the fourth inning and then slugged a three-run shot to give the Tigers some insurance in the top of the eighth. The Detroit slugger has gone 2-for-4 in three straight games and is now batting .315/.372/.539 with 15 home runs and 80 RBI in 97 total games this season.

Nationals manager Matt Williams said the MRI results for Ryan Zimmerman showed a "pretty substantial" hamstring strain.

Well, that's not good. Zimmerman was placed on the disabled list prior to Wednesday's game, and it doesn't appear he's anywhere close to returning to the club at this point. Anthony Rendon will get the majority of the starts at third base with Zimmerman sidelined.

Bartolo Colon carried a perfect game into the seventh inning Wednesday in the Mets' 3-2 win over the Mariners.

Robinson Cano ended the bid for perfection with a two-out single to shallow left field in the bottom of the seventh. Colon then gave up two runs in the eighth but wound up with his ninth victory of 2014. The 41-year-old right-hander has a 4.03 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 100/19 K/BB ratio in 134 innings this season. The Mets are known to be shopping him with the July 31 trade deadline drawing near.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Wednesday "it's too early to call" whether the rest program prescribed for Masahiro Tanaka's right elbow will work.

The other option is obviously surgery, so the Yankees are going to give the program all the time they can before making a decision. Cashman did add that Tanaka is feeling better since he was shut down on July 10 due to a partial tear in his ulnar collateral ligament. He's still weeks away from any potential return to the mound.

Manny Machado (back) is not in the Orioles' lineup on Wednesday.

Machado received an anti-inflammatory injection for his back after Tuesday's game, so it's no surprise that he's getting the day off Wednesday. He's still considered day-to-day for now, but if misses too many more games it might make sense for the Orioles to shut him down for a few weeks. Ryan Flaherty started at third base in his absence.

According to CSNBayArea.com beat reporter Andrew Baggarly, the Giants are "growing more concerned" about Brandon Belt's concussion.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy told reporters Tuesday that Belt was "making progress" and might soon be able to resume some baseball activities, but the first baseman was sent back to the team hotel on Wednesday evening in Philadelphia after exhibiting lingering concussion-related symptoms. There is no timetable for his return at this point.

James Shields held the White Sox to one run in seven innings Wednesday in a 2-1 Royals victory.

Shields was left with a no-decision because the Kansas City offense didn't break through for the lead until the top of the ninth inning. But the right-hander pitched really well, scattering six hits and a walk while striking out seven White Sox batters. He'll carry a 3.58 ERA and 1.27 WHIP into his next start at home against the Twins.
Jul 23 - 5:24 PM

Eric Hosmer was pulled from Wednesday's game against the Cubs with "decreased grip strength in his hand."

That was the announcement from the Kansas City medical staff. Hosmer got hit by a pitch on Sunday and sat out Monday and Tuesday with what was called a right hand contusion. He obviously needs a little more rest.
Jul 23 - 5:07 PM

Ruben Tejada left Wednesday's game against the Mariners after taking a Taijuan Walker pitch to the head.

The ball hit the front of Tejada's helmet and knocked it off. He was able to walk off the field under his own power, but the Mets will surely run concussion tests.
