The Rangers are discussing a trade for Rays righty James Shields, according to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

The Rangers have also been connected to Zack Greinke and some of the other free agent starters, so this could a case of a team simply exploring all its options. Shields, 30, posted a 3.52 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 223/58 K/BB ratio in 227 2/3 innings this past season for Tampa Bay. The Rays will want a package of good prospects in return.

Xander Bogaerts was removed from Friday's game against the Mariners with a sprained left index finger.

He sustained the injury while sliding head first into second base. The severity of the injury remains unclear at the moment, but the Red Sox should provide an update on his status after the conclusion of Friday's game.

Cody Bellinger slugged a monstrous grand slam to lead the Dodgers to a 5-2 victory over the Mets on Friday.

His sixth-inning second deck blast off Zack Wheeler proved to be the difference in the ballgame. It was his second career grand slam. Bellinger has been pretty quiet since homering in four straight games earlier this month, but he’s now up to 13 homers on the year to go along with a disappointing .232/.323/.459 batting line.

Franklin Barreto had the best day of his young MLB career on Friday afternoon, blasting a pair of three-run homers as the Athletics routed the White Sox 11-2.

The 22-year-old smashed a three-run homer off of James Shields in the second inning to increase the A's early lead to 4-0. He then tacked on an additional three-run bomb off of Luis Avilan in the eighth to help put the game away. He finished the day 2-for-4 with six RBI and is now slashing .217/.250/.309 with three homers and nine RBI in his first 24 plate appearances at the big league level this season. While he's been impressive the last few days, he's only up to fill in for the injured Matt Chapman and is expected to head back to Triple-A Nashville in short order, limiting his fantasy appeal.

Roberto Osuna was suspended for 75 games, without pay, for violating the league's Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy.

The suspension is retroactive to his arrest date of May 8, which means that he'll be ineligible to return until August 4. Osuna's next scheduled court date is on July 9 where he plans to plead not guilty. Ryan Tepera will continue to fill in as the Blue Jays' closer for the time being.

Michelle McPhee of ABC News reports that Hanley Ramirez is "being eyed in connection with an ongoing federal and state investigation."

There are no other details available at this time, but the report helps to explain why Hanley has remained a free agent nearly four weeks after getting cut loose by the Red Sox. The 34-year-old former All-Star was batting .254/.313/.395 through 44 games this season with Boston. He's still owed around $14 million in the final year of a four-year, $88 million deal.

Clayton Kershaw (back) will return to the Dodgers' rotation Saturday against the Mets.

Kershaw had been scheduled to make a minor league rehab start Saturday for Triple-A Oklahoma City, but that team is playing a weekend series in Omaha, where there is heavy rain in the forecast. The ace left-hander will instead jump right back into major league action, with a pretty favorable matchup versus the free-falling Mets. Kershaw has been limited to 49 innings this season due to back and biceps issues. When healthy, he has delivered a 2.76 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 53/11 K/BB ratio.

Carlos Carrasco (elbow) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session early next week.

Carrasco was placed on the disabled list last Sunday with a right elbow contusion after getting drilled by a comebacker in his start Saturday against the Twins. He has already resumed playing catch and could feasibly return to the Indians' rotation before the end of June, without making a minor league rehab start.

Stephen Strasburg (shoulder) played catch for the second time Friday.

Nationals manager Davey Martinez told reporters after the workout that the inflammation is nearly gone from Strasburg's shoulder, but added that there is no timetable for him to resume throwing off a mound. Strasburg has been on the disabled list since June 10. It's possible -- but obviously not certain -- that he'll be ready to return to Washington's starting rotation before the All-Star break.
Jun 22 - 4:43 PM

Eduardo Escobar (elbow) is out of the Twins' starting lineup Friday versus the Rangers.

Escobar was lifted from Thursday's series finale against the Red Sox after taking a Rick Porcello pitch off his right elbow. He only suffered a contusion and is considered day-to-day. Taylor Motter will start at third base and bat sixth Friday night against Rangers left-hander Mike Minor.
Jun 22 - 4:41 PM

Eddie Rosario (shoulder) is back in the Twins' starting lineup on Friday night against the Rangers.

He'll start in left field and bat second versus left-hander Mike Minor after missing Thursday's series finale against the Red Sox due to minor soreness in his right shoulder. Rosario is slashing .320/.359/.579 with 16 home runs, 46 RBI, six stolen bases, and 52 runs scored in 70 games this season.

Mike Foltynewicz (triceps) is now lined up to return from the disabled list Monday.

Foltynewicz felt good during a bullpen session on Friday, but the Braves want to give Sunday's start against the Orioles to Brandon McCarthy, with Folty handling Monday's series opener versus the Reds. The 26-year-old right-hander had a sharp 2.16 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 94/33 K/BB ratio through 79 innings this season with Atlanta when he landed on the disabled list June 16, retroactive to June 13, with right triceps tightness.
