According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Phillies are showing interest in Angel Pagan.

After missing out on B.J. Upton, it makes plenty of sense for the Phillies to make a play for Pagan. He's would come considerably cheaper than the five years and $55 million the Phillies reportedly offered Upton and Michael Bourn is expected to want more. Rosenthal was told by sources it's believed the Phillies and Giants have made four-year offers to Pagan.

Marco Gonzales (pectoral) is scheduled to return to the Triple-A Memphis rotation on Saturday.

Gonzales has been on the shelf since April 22 with a sore left pectoral muscle. If he pitches well on Saturday, the Cardinals might go ahead and insert the 23-year-old left-hander into their starting rotation next week. There's a vacancy with Adam Wainwright (heel) ruled out for the remainder of the 2015 season, and Gonzales is capable of providing a good amount of fantasy production in that spot.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times confirms that Alex Cobb has a partial ligament tear in his right elbow.

Cobb is going to try to pitch through it, but pitchers who suffer torn elbow ligaments almost always wind up undergoing Tommy John surgery. Cobb, 27, posted a 2.87 ERA, 1.136 WHIP, and 149/47 K/BB ratio over 166 1/3 innings last season. It's obviously a really bad situation for the Rays, who are off to a decent start in 2015.

Greg Holland (pectoral) will be activated Wednesday.

The initial plan called for Holland to be activated Tuesday, but the Royals will give their closer one extra day of rest before throwing him back into the fire. Holland has been on the shelf since April 18 with a pectoral strain. He'll push Wade Davis back into a setup role.

Joe Wieland has been confirmed as the Dodgers' starter for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

Wieland owns a cool 3.60 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and 22/2 K/BB ratio in 20 innings this season at Triple-A Oklahoma City and makes for an attractive fantasy streamer against the struggling Brewers. The 25-year-old right-hander could stick around for a bit if he pitches well.

An MRI came up clean on Hanley Ramirez's shoulder.

Ramirez was lifted from Monday's game against the Rays after banging his left shoulder against the left field wall at Fenway Park while trying to make a catch. He showed improved range of motion on Tuesday and is hoping to avoid the disabled list, but he'll be out for at least a handful of games. The 31-year-old slugger had racked up 10 home runs and 22 RBI through just 92 at-bats.

Indians activated 1B Nick Swisher from the 15-day disabled list.

Swisher is starting at DH and batting sixth for the Tribe in his 2015 regular-season debut Tuesday night against the Royals. He missed the first month of the season while rehabbing dual knee surgeries. The 34-year-old only has fringe value in standard mixed fantasy leagues after batting .208/.278/.331 with eight home runs and 42 RBI in 97 games last summer.

According to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Devin Mesoraco still hasn't tried squatting and is trying to avoid surgery for his left hip impingement.

Mesoraco hasn't started a game since April 11 due to the hip impingement, yet the Reds have opted against placing him on the disabled list. He will be able to DH during the Reds' upcoming weekend series against the White Sox, so a decision on a potential surgery will presumably be held off until then. Mesoraco would be out for four months if he does ultimately have to go under the knife.

Leonys Martin (wrist) is not in the Rangers' starting lineup on Tuesday against the Astros.

Martin injured his left wrist Monday while trying to make a catch. X-rays turned up negative, but he has some soreness. Delino DeShields Jr. is in center field and batting eighth for the Rangers on Tuesday night.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times speculates that Alex Cobb has a partial elbow ligament tear.

It's important to note that the Rays have not made any sort of announcement on Cobb's status, so Topkin categorized this as "informed speculation" after his recent setback and a new MRI. The belief is that the Rays will wait to see how he responds to rest and treatment, but if Topkin is correct, Tommy John surgery could very well be in his future. Stay tuned.

Marlins released C Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

This confirms a report from CBS Sports' Jon Heyman. The Marlins expressed optimism for finding a trade partner after they designated Saltalamacchia for assignment last week, but nothing has materialized. This means that the Marlins will be responsible for the remainder of his three-year, $21 million contract and he'll be free to sign with another club at the major league minimum. He should have no shortage of suitors as a free agent. The Royals, Rays, and Diamondbacks are among the teams who have been mentioned as possibilities.
May 5 - 12:18 PM

Christian Yelich (back) will likely be activated from the disabled list Friday.

The original timeline had him returning Thursday, but the Marlins want him to play another minor league rehab game. He's 1-for-5 with a walk and a stolen base over his first two games with High-A Jupiter. Yelich has been sidelined for two weeks with a herniated disk in his back.
