Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com reports that the Giants are focused on re-signing Angel Pagan.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy spoke with Pagan on Thursday and Baggarly hears that there's greater optimism that a deal will eventually be reached. The 31-year-old is believed to be looking for a three-year contract. On a related note, Baggarly hears that the Giants never engaged in talks with Melky Cabrera before he signed a two-year, $16 million deal with the Blue Jays on Friday.

Sonny Gray remains hospitalized due to "severe gastroenteritis," according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.

The illness has dragged on longer than expected, but it's possible Gray could be discharged later Wednesday or Thursday. His status for his next scheduled start on Sunday remains up in the air, so the A's are keeping Chris Bassitt around in case he's needed again.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that Angels owner Arte Moreno and president John Carpino are "still trying to broker a peace" between general manager Jerry Dipoto and manager Mike Scioscia.

Various earlier reports said the Dipoto was definitely leaving, but Morosi is hearing it's not a done deal yet. It's hard to imagine Dipoto and Scioscia repairing their fractured relationship at this point, but we'll see. The situation should be resolved later Wednesday.

Matt Holliday (quad) is scheduled to do some light running this week.

Holliday has been taking batting practice and is nearly ready to test out his ailing right quad with some jogging. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Tuesday that he wasn't sure when Holliday would be cleared to up the intensity of his running. The Cards are holding out hope that the outfielder could return before the All-Star break, but it's certainly not a given.

Brandon Phillips (thumbs) is back in the Reds' lineup Wednesday.

Phillips sat out the last two games with soreness in both of his thumbs. With Phillips returning to the leadoff spot, Billy Hamilton has been moved back down to the No. 9 spot.

Yasmani Grandal went 2-for-5 with a two-run double and a two-run home run in Tuesday's 10-inning win against the Diamondbacks.

Grandal opened the scoring with a two-run home run off of Rubby De La Rosa in the second inning. He added necessary insurance in the 10th inning with a two-run double to make it a 6-3 game. Grandal has homered in back-to-back games, giving him 12 on the season along with 31 RBI and a .269/.380/.497 triple-slash line.

Howie Kendrick homered in the 10th inning on Tuesday as the Dodgers took down the Diamondbacks.

Kendrick finished 4-for-5 on the night, adding an RBI single in the seventh inning to go along with his solo home run in the 10th inning to break a 3-3 tie. He also had a four-hit game on Friday. The second baseman is on a six-game hitting streak, batting .298/.349/.429 with seven home runs and 34 RBI.

Jorge De La Rosa kept the Athletics off the board over seven innings en route to a win on Tuesday.

De La Rosa worked his way around four hits and four walks to keep the A's scoreless. Aside from one poor start against the Brewers, the lefty had a great June, ending the month with a 3.16 ERA across six starts. On the season, he has a 4.59 ERA with a 1.48 WHIP and a 60/35 K/BB ratio in 64 2/3 innings. De La Rosa will start on the road against the Diamondbacks next.

Neil Walker hit an RBI double in the 14th inning, helping the Pirates outlast the Tigers on Tuesday.

Walker finished 2-for-6 with two walks on the night. His RBI double helped salvage a scoring opportunity that appeared to have been squandered when Gorkys Hernandez made an awful base running blunder during the previous at-bat. Walker has yet to find his power, batting a meager .259/.331/.380 with four home runs and 24 RBI on the year.

Andrew Heaney pitched seven innings of one-run ball, allowing only two hits to earn a win over the Yankees on Tuesday.

Heaney has looked sharp in two major league starts thus far. The Yankees' only run came courtesy Mark Teixeira's home run in the second inning. Along with allowing only two hits, Heaney walked two and struck out seven. Though he has been traded twice already, the lefty is a well-regarded prospect, so it wouldn't be surprising if he kept it up for a while. Mixed leaguers should feel comfortable adding him. Heaney's next start, however, will come at Coors Field against the Rockies.

Eduardo Nunez finished 3-for-4 with an RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base as the Twins trumped the Reds 8-5 on Tuesday.

Nunez and the Twins racked up 15 hits against Anthony DeSclafani and the Reds bullpen. The shortstop had three of them, collecting two singles and a double. He also stole his third base of the season. Nunez' usage has been inexplicable at times -- the light-hitting shortstop has served as the team's designated hitter in 11 games this year -- but he's put up decent numbers through 33 games, hitting .305/.350/.516 with 11 RBI and 13 runs scored. Perhaps he'll begin garnering more of the playing time at short with his hot hitting.

Mike Montgomery flashed terrific stuff in a shutout of the Padres on Tuesday, losing a bid for a no-hitter in the seventh inning.

Montgomery has been on fire since debuting in the majors for the first time at the beginning of June. On Tuesday, he brought a no-hitter into the seventh inning, but lost it with one out when Yangervis Solarte doubled. It was the only hit he allowed in nine innings along with four walks and seven strikeouts. Montgomery now has tossed back-to-back shutouts. The left-hander, through six starts, owns a stellar 1.62 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, and a 29/12 K/BB ratio in 44 1/3 innings. He'll start in Oakland against the Athletics next.
