Rafael Perez had shoulder surgery on Wednesday.

Perez had already been ruled out for the rest of the season, and now his offseason routine may be slightly affected. But the Indians are optimistic that the left-hander will be close to full health by spring training.

Corey Kluber went the distance against the Royals Wednesday, recording six strikeouts while allowing just one run in a 12-1 victory.

He missed out on a shutout when Alex Rios had an RBI groundout in the ninth inning, but that's hardly anything to quibble over. Kluber permitted just five base knocks on the day and issued just one free pass as the Tribe rolled to a win. The reigning American League Cy Young winner has a superb 172/32 K/BB ratio over 157 innings this season to go along with a 3.44 ERA. He'll get the Angels on the road next.

Randal Grichuk (groin) is back in the Cardinals' starting lineup Wednesday against the Reds.

Grichuk missed a couple of games with groin discomfort. He underwent an MRI on Monday and it showed no structural damage. The young slugger is starting in center field and batting seventh in his return to action Wednesday.

Red Sox placed OF Mookie Betts on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Betts was injured when he fell over the short bullpen wall at Fenway Park while trying to make a catch during Tuesday's game. As is the case with most any concussion, how long he'll be sidelined is totally up in the air at this point. Jackie Bradley will handle center field while Betts is out.

ESPN's Jim Bowden reports that Tyson Ross has become the Blue Jays' "top trade target."

The issue, however, is how eager the Padres are to move him given his skill level and the fact that he's under team control through 2017. San Diego is also listening on James Shields, Andrew Cashner and Ian Kennedy and they'd surely prefer to trade any of those three over Ross. The Jays have also been connected to Jeff Samardzija, Mike Leake and others.

ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Tigers called teams Wednesday to tell them they were "rebooting" and will listen to trade offers for David Price, Yoenis Cespedes and others.

One of the big questions this week has been whether the Tigers will be buyers or sellers at the deadline, and now we have our answer. Price instantly becomes one of the most attractive trade chips and will surely bring a boatload even though he's slated for free agency after the season. Cespedes should also bring back quite a bit and the Tigers figure to shop Joakim Soria and others, as well.

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBI in Wednesday's win over the Royals.

Lindor singled in his first at-bat, hit a sacrifice fly in his second and capped off his day with a three-run homer in the sixth. The shortstop has really turned it up a notch of late, hitting .324 with four homers and 12 RBI over his last 16 games. It was an offensive explosion for the Tribe, as they pounded out 18 hits -- including four home runs -- and 12 runs.

Justin Verlander turned back the clock Wednesday, striking out 10 while spinning eight frames of one-run ball in a 2-1 victory over the Rays.

Asdrubal Cabrera got to Verlander with a solo shot in the fifth inning, but it was the only extra-base hit and just one of four baserunners he yielded all day. Verlander was really struggling initially after coming off the disabled list, but he's now allowed only one run over eight innings in each of his last two outings. It's the first time since July of 2012 that he's accomplished that feat. He'll try to keep it going next week against the Royals.

Gregory Polanco departed Wednesday's game versus the Twins due to left knee discomfort.

He didn't appear to suffer the injury on one play, although it's worth noting that he had an issue with the same knee last month after banging into the outfield wall. More should be known on Polanco after Wednesday's game.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mets "have their sights clearly on a big bat."

Heyman lists Justin Upton, Carlos Gonzalez, Carlos Gomez, Gerardo Parra and Jay Bruce as possibilities that they're considering. He adds that the Reds at one point were showing interest in Zack Wheeler (elbow) in a potential trade for Bruce. It was Heyman who reported over the weekend that the Mets were unwilling to meet the Padres' asking price for Upton, but it sounds like the two sides haven't given up on getting something done.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Padres have discussed Javier Baez with the Cubs.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reported on Monday that they've also talked to the Cubs about Starlin Castro as they look for a long-term solution at shortstop. The Cubs are interested in a few of the Padres' starters, namely Tyson Ross and Andrew Cashner, so the two sides could be a match. Baez has spent all season at Triple-A Iowa, batting .317/.387/.572 with 10 homers over 38 games in an injury-shortened campaign.

Robinson Cano is dealing with an abdominal strain and will undergo an MRI.

Cano initially was hurt while playing the field on Monday. The ailment isn't considered serious, as the Mariners are saying the MRI is precautionary. He's expected to travel with the M's for their road trip that begins Thursday.
