Sweeny Murti of WFAN reports that a deal between the Yankees and Ichiro Suzuki is not done.

Nikkan Sports in Japan reported that Ichiro was set to re-sign with the Yankees on a one-year, $5 million deal (with incentives), but it's just a rumor for now. However, the 39-year-old outfielder has made it clear that his preference is to remain in pinstripes.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Nationals are "making progress" on acquiring Jonathan Papelbon from the Phillies.

Papelbon has said that he would only waive his no-trade clause if he's sent to a team where he would close, so there's a chance Drew Storen could be moved back into a set-up role. However, the Nationals could sweeten the pot if they guarantee his $13 million vesting option for 2016.

Rockies acquired SS Jose Reyes and RHPs Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro, and Jesus Tinoco from the Blue Jays for SS Troy Tulowitzki and RHP LaTroy Hawkins.

The deal is now official. Reyes would appear to be an odd fit for the Rockies, who have prospect Trevor Story in Triple-A, so the expectation is that he could be eventually flipped to another team. The Rockies would likely have to eat some salary in order to do it, as Reyes has showed diminished skills at the plate and in the field. The 32-year-old is owed $22 million in 2016 and 2017 and his contract includes a $22 million club option or a $4 million buyout for 2018. This is the second time he's been traded since signing his six year, $106 million contract with the Marlins in December of 2011.

Blue Jays acquired SS Troy Tulowitzki and RHP LaTroy Hawkins from the Rockies for SS Jose Reyes and RHPs Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro, and Jesus Tinoco.

While many expected the Blue Jays to make a big splash for their pitcher, they stunned the baseball world late Monday night by upgrading what was already the best offense in the majors. Tulowitzki has managed to stay mostly healthy this season while batting .300/.348/.471 with 12 home runs and 53 RBI over 87 games. His injury history is a concern, especially on the turf at Rogers Centre, but the 30-year-old could age better in the American League because of the ability to DH. Tulowitzki will receive a $2 million assignment bonus for being traded and his contract now includes a full no-trade clause. He's owed $94 million from 2016-2020 with a $15 million club option or $4 million buyout in 2021.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Rockies are planning to trade outfielder Carlos Gonzalez.

And the timing couldn't be better, as Gonzalez went deep twice on Monday against the Cubs and now has 10 home runs this month. The 29-year-old is batting .278/.332/.520 with 20 home runs and 51 RBI overall this season. His injury history and contract could cause some teams to shy away, but he has the potential to be an impact bat for a contender. He's making $16 million this season and is owed $37 million from 2016-2017.

Ryan Zimmerman (foot) will be activated from the disabled list for Tuesday's game against the Marlins.

The Nationals got Anthony Rendon back over the weekend and they are now prepared to add Jayson Werth and Zimmerman back into the mix. Sidelined since early June with plantar fasciitis, Zimmerman went just 1-for-15 during his minor league rehab assignment, but the important thing is that the rest has done him good.

Jayson Werth (wrist) is set to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

The Nationals will also get Ryan Zimmerman (foot) back on Tuesday. Werth, out since mid-May with two small fractures in his left wrist, batted .367 (11-for-30) with two doubles over nine minor league rehab games between High-A Potomac and Triple-A Syracuse.

Dee Gordon (thumb) went 1-for-4 with a single and played seven innings in the field in a minor league rehab game Monday with High-A Jupiter.

Gordon reported "no pain" with his dislocated left thumb and declared himself ready to be activated on Tuesday. "I'm not the training staff -- I'm going to go with whatever the organization wants me to do," said Gordon. "But I feel good and it was good to get back out there today."

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Giants are making a "strong push" to acquire Cole Hamels from the Phillies.

Rosenthal notes that the Giants have $50 million coming off the payroll at the end of the season, so adding Hamels wouldn't break the bank. The Giants' biggest competition might be the division rival Dodgers, though the Rangers, Yankees, Cubs, Diamondbacks, and Astros have also been mentioned as possibilities.

Diamondbacks prospect shortstop Dansby Swanson suffered a "mild concussion" and received 14 stitches on the right side of his mouth after he was hit in the face by a pitch during a simulated game on Thursday.

The incident occurred just one week after the 2015 No. 1 overall pick agreed to a $6.5 million contract with the Diamondbacks. Team farm director Mike Bell said that Swanson is recovering well and showing no current "concussive symptoms." His professional debut will be pushed back a bit, but he's still expected to play in games this season. "Everything is fine, really, all things considered," said Bell. "Whenever anybody gets hit like that it’s scary. But he’s doing good."

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mets are not interested in reacquiring Jose Reyes.

Reyes is set to be traded to the Rockies (along with Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro, and Jesus Tinoco), but many expect that he will eventually be flipped elsewhere. The 32-year-old is owed $22 million per season through 2017, with a $22 million option or a $4 million buyout for 2018, which would likely be too expensive for the Mets unless the Rockies were to absorb a big chunk of his remaining salary. Reyes has also shown a decline in skills, both at the plate and in the field. He's batting .285 with four home runs and a .708 OPS over 69 games this season.

Paul Goldschmidt drew three walks and went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Monday's 10-inning win over the Mariners.

Goldschmidt put the Diamondbacks up 1-0 in the first inning when he drilled a solo home run to left field off of Mike Montgomery. The Mariners didn't seem to have any interest in pitching to him after that, and with good reason: the first baseman is batting an absurd .346/.465/.611 with 22 home runs, 75 RBI, and 17 stolen bases. Goldschmidt also leads the majors in walks by a large margin with 82, 10 more than the next-highest total (Bryce Harper, 72).
