Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that the Rangers have signed right-handed starter Colby Lewis to a one-year, $2 million contract extension.

The deal also includes around $4 million in performance-based incentives. Lewis seemed poised to hit it big in free agency this winter, but he needed season-ending elbow surgery in late July and now has to settle for a contract that only covers him through the end of 2013. The 33-year-old posted a 3.43 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 93/14 K/BB ratio in 105 innings this season for the Rangers. He won't be ready by Opening Day but should be back in action by the middle of next summer.

Mark Reynolds slugged two home runs Wednesday in the Brewers' 5-1 defeat of the visiting Reds.

Reynolds' offensive outburst helped Milwaukee to a big three-game sweep of Cincinnati. He hit a two-run bomb in the bottom of the sixth inning and then smacked a solo shot in the bottom of the eighth. The first baseman is batting just .207 this year, but he now has 16 home runs.

Hanley Ramirez (wrist) is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup Tuesday night versus the Pirates.

Hanley was struck by pitches on the left shoulder and wrist in the Dodgers' win over the Cardinals on Sunday night and hasn't played since. He's still day-to-day.

Yasiel Puig (hand) is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup on Wednesday against the Pirates.

It'll be the fourth straight game that Puig has missed. He took a Joe Kelly pitch off his left hand on Saturday and is still sore. Multiple X-rays have been taken and the results were negative. Puig remains day-to-day.

Astros placed OF George Springer on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right quad.

Springer also has a knee issue and wasn't making enough progress in his workouts. The hope is that he'll be ready as soon as his 15-day stint is over. Springer, 24, boasts an .804 OPS, 20 home runs, and 51 RBI through his first 78 games at the major league level.

Shelby Miller will start fort the Cardinals on Saturday at Wrigley Field.

Carlos Martinez is being moved back to the bullpen. Miller has not been good this season, but Martinez had gone just four innings in back-to-back starts. The Cardinals are expected to acquire a starter at the deadline, so both pitchers could be relievers by August.

The Pirates will place Starling Marte on the disabled list prior to Wednesday's game.

Marte took a fastball off his helmet on Friday, and although he was cleared off a possible concussion and played Monday, it appears he's had a setback. The Pirates should provide more on his status later Wednesday. Brent Morel will take his spot on the roster.

Cameron Maybin has been suspended 25 games by Major League Baseball for testing positive for amphetamines.

It was Maybin's second positive test as you're only given a warning and eventually more testing after testing positive the first time. Maybin is batting just .247/.286/.368 over 62 games for the Padres this season. Jeff Francoeur has replaced him on the roster.

Phillies activated C Carlos Ruiz from the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Ruiz wasn't supposed to be back until Friday, but the Phils decided to make the move a couple days early. The veteran backstop was been out since late June with post-concussion symptoms, but he got through five rehab games with no issues and is ready to go.

Nationals placed 3B Ryan Zimmerman on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

The Nationals are still awaiting MRI results before they determine how long the third baseman will be sidelined, but it's worth noting that Zimmerman admitting to feeling worse Wednesday than when he suffered the injury Tuesday. He could be looking at an extended stay on the DL. Anthony Rendon will handle third base and Danny Espinosa will be at second while Zimmerman is on the shelf. Zach Walters has replaced Zimmerman on the roster.

Padres purchased the contract of OF Jeff Francoeur from Triple-A El Paso.

Francoeur has batted .294 with 15 homers and a .790 OPS at El Paso this season and has also done some pitching, posting a 4.26 ERA and 4/3 K/BB ratio over 6 1/3 relief innings. It would be fun to see him get some work on the mound with San Diego, but most -- if not all -- of Frenchy's playing time figures to come as an outfielder. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues. The Padres have yet to announce a corresponding move.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Twins are "open to trading" Kendrys Morales.

Well, of course they are. Morales is under contract only for this season and the Twins are well out of the playoff picture, so it makes all the sense in the world to get something for Morales now if they can. While the designated hitter is sporting a lowly .599 OPS, he's picked it up of late with a 12-game hitting streak. The Mariners, Brewers, Yankees and Royals were among the teams pursuing Morales before the Twins signed him, but it's not which if any of those clubs could still have interest in the 31-year-old.
