Matt Garza has been cleared for a normal offseason program and should be ready for spring training.

Garza underwent a scan of his throwing elbow on Thursday morning that showed significant healing where he once experienced a painful stress reaction. The 28-year-old right-hander seems likely to be traded at some point during the 2013 season, but he will have to be fully healthy for the Cubs to get anything significant in return.

Sonny Gray (illness) was released from the hospital Wednesday.

Gray had been hospitalized since Tuesday due to "severe gastroenteritis." Despite feeling better, there's no clear picture of when the right-hander might make his next start.

Taijuan Walker yielded just one hit over six scoreless frames Wednesday in the Mariners' 7-0 blanking of the Padres.

The only two blemishes of the afternoon for Walker happened in the bottom of the fourth, when Derek Norris got hit by a pitch and Yonder Alonso singled to center. Walker did meet with a trainer in the sixth inning, but it apparently wasn't anything serious. He was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the seventh after throwing 76 pitches. Walker has been terrific since late May and will look to keep it rolling next week versus the Tigers.

Joc Pederson is not in the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

Pederson will take a seat with lefty Robbie Ray on the bump for the D'backs. Kike Hernandez will get the start in center field for Pederson on Wednesday.

Adrian Gonzalez is not in the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

With lefty Robbie Ray on the hill, Gonzalez and a few of the other left-handed hitting Dodgers are getting a rest. Scott Van Slyke started in his place at first base Wednesday.

Orioles designated OF Delmon Young for assignment.

Young wasn't terrible this year but wasn't producing much, either, owning a .270/.289/.339 with two home runs in 174 at-bats. The 29-year-old showed enough that he could be of interest to a team as a possible trade target or waiver claim, though. Young is making $2.25 million this year before becoming a free agent this winter.

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Patrick Corbin (elbow) could make his season debut Saturday against the Rockies.

Corbin was expected to make a final rehab start Thursday, but the club is holding him back with the idea that he could be needed with the big club sooner. Corbin owns a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 minor league innings as he makes his way back from Tommy John surgery. Corbin is worth owning, if not starting, in all fantasy leagues.

MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports that the Twins are calling up prospect Miguel Sano.

Kennys Vargas has already been optioned to Triple-A Rochester to open up a roster spot. Sano, 22, boasts a .918 OPS with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in 66 games this season at the Double-A level. He's primarily played third base in the minors, but look for the Twins to use him as their everyday designated hitter. Sano has been a consensus top-20 prospect for going on four years and is worth a shot in every mixed fantasy league for his power potential.
Jul 1 - 5:14 PM

Jaime Garcia (groin) won't make his next scheduled start Thursday against the Padres.

Garcia is expected to avoid the disabled list, but he was unable to complete scheduled throwing sessions on Saturday and Monday due to ongoing cramping in his left groin. He should be fine after one skipped turn in the Cardinals' rotation. Tim Cooney is probably going to fill in on Thursday versus San Diego.

Justin Smoak went 3-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in the Blue Jays' 11-2 defeat of the Red Sox on Wednesday afternoon at Rogers Centre.

Smoak cranked a two-run shot in the bottom of the first inning and a solo shot in the bottom of the third. He then added a single in the bottom of the seventh. The 28-year-old first baseman is having a quietly tremendous season, now with an .849 OPS, seven home runs, and 24 RBI in 62 games.
Jul 1 - 3:58 PM

Johnny Cueto held the Twins to just one run over eight innings while striking out eight in a 2-1 victory Wednesday.

Brian Dozier came around to score after smacking a leadoff double down the left-field line in the sixth inning, but that's all the Twins were able to scrape together against Cueto. In six starts since returning from an elbow issue, Cueto boasts a 2.52 ERA and 40/8 K/BB ratio over 39 1/3 innings. In other words, he's looked like his normal self. The righty takes on the Nationals on the road next.
Jul 1 - 3:53 PM

Michael Cuddyer (knee) isn't expected to require a trip to the disabled list.

Cuddyer had to leave Tuesday's game with a left knee injury, but an MRI apparently didn't show any serious damage. The Mets think he'll only have to sit out a few days.
