Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that the Pirates might be willing to offer Russell Martin a three-year deal in the range of $25 million.

The belief is that the Yankees are only willing to offer two years, so the Pirates may come in with the top bid. Martin likes New York and he would have the best chance to win there, so it's possible he could stick around if the Yankees add an option year or bump up his annual salary. The Rangers and Mariners have also been mentioned as possible suitors for Martin, but it appears that the decision will come down to the Pirates and Yankees. The 29-year-old backstop will likely make his choice in the next several days, possibly before the Winter Meetings begin next week.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the "perception of some involved" in Adeiny Hechavarria trade talks is that the Rays have "created some traction."

The Marlins appear eager to dump Hechavarria and his $4.35 million contract and a deal is expected to go down sometime over the weekend. The Orioles and Cardinals have reportedly been interested in addition to the Rays, but it appears Tampa Bay has inched ahead. Tim Beckham can move to second base to clear a starting spot for the slick-fielding Hechavarria.

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) could begin a rehab assignment as soon as June 29.

Rodriguez will face hitters on Saturday and should be cleared to make a rehab start five days after that if all goes well. The left-hander has been out nearly all month with a recurring knee issue, but the hope is that he'll be ready to rejoin the Red Sox' rotation by the All-Star break.

Red Sox signed INF Jhonny Peralta to a minor league contract.

It's a good landing spot for Peralta, as the Red Sox have been desperate for a contribution from their third basemen this season. Of course, he's no guarantee to be an improvement given his .251/.299/.376 line since the beginning of last season. Still, the 35-year-old is worth a shot on a minor league deal. He'll report to Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday.

Matt Kemp (hamstring) is not in the Braves' lineup Friday.

Kemp exited Thursday's game with a tight left hamstring. It's been a recurring issue for him this season. Danny Santana is in left field.
Jun 23 - 4:26 PM

Matt Duffy had surgery this week to remove a calcium deposit from his ailing left Achilles.

The Rays think it's what had been causing the pain in Duffy's heel and causing multiple setbacks. If that proves to be the case, he'll be back sometime this season. However, there's still no timetable for his return.
Jun 23 - 4:24 PM

Dexter Fowler (quad) is back in the Cardinals' lineup Friday.

Fowler was not in the team's initial lineup but evidently was cleared to return after being checked out. He missed one game with a quad cramp.
Jun 23 - 4:22 PM

Freddie Freeman (wrist) has been cleared to take dry swings.

Freeman was given the go-ahead after having a follow-up CT scan Friday. It's the first step in a hitting progression for him that's going to take a while, but the slugger hopes to return around the All-Star break. Freeman has been working out at third base, as he could switch positions so Matt Adams can stay at first base.
Jun 23 - 4:19 PM

Miguel Sano is not in the Twins' lineup Friday due to illness.

Sano is a little under the weather, so he'll get some rest. Eduardo Escobar is at third base.

Royals signed RHP Neftali Feliz to a one-year contract.

The deal was first reported by FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal on Thursday and has now become official. Feliz had issues with the home run ball in Milwaukee, but he's throwing hard and should benefit from a more spacious park.
Jun 23 - 3:43 PM

Royals designated RHP Chris Young for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Neftali Feliz. Young was great for the Royals in 2015 but holds a 6.52 ERA since the beginning of 2016. The 38-year-old will probably get another shot somewhere, but he looks done as far as being a successful major leaguer.
Jun 23 - 3:42 PM

Red Sox claimed RHP Doug Fister off waivers from the Angels.

Fister exercised the opt-out clause in his $1.75 million deal with the Angels earlier this week, but Boston scooped him up on release waivers. The sinkerballer will start on Sunday against the Angels and could fill a spot in their rotation until Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) is ready to return.
