According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, the Mariners "may be amenable" to offering Josh Hamilton "five years, or perhaps even six."

Heyman does add that the chances they would offer a deal of such length is "fairly speculative" on his part, but he says the Mariners are "aggressively" pursuing the outfielder. Now that the Rangers have lost out on Zack Greinke, Seattle might have to offer Hamilton 5-6 years to pry him away from the Rangers. Texas is reportedly willing to go to four years with the 31-year-old.

Dexter Fowler reached base four times and stole a base in the Cardinals' comeback victory over the Cubs on Friday.

Fowler doubled in a run in the third inning and had a pair of singles. That's in addition to a walk that he drew as part of the Cardinals' nine-run eighth inning that turned a one-run deficit into an eight-run lead. The stolen base was only Fowler's fourth of the season and he's been caught three times, which is disappointing for a guy who swiped 33 bags over the previous two years with the Cubs. The nagging heel issue he's had could be a factor in his running game, and his OBP being down at .336 hasn't helped, either.

Anthony DeSclafani (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with the Arizona League Reds on Sunday.

He's slated to go three innings in what will be his first game action of the season. DeSclafani will surely need his full 30-day rehab allotment, but if all goes well, that could put him in line to rejoin the Reds' rotation by late August. The righty is trying to pitch through a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament.

Ryan Braun (calf, wrist) said Friday that he expects to return to the Brewers' lineup Saturday.

Braun also revealed that he's dealt with a sore right wrist all season and he received a cortisone shot before the All-Star break. The veteran outfielder is also still battling a nagging left calf injury.

Kevin Kiermaier (hip) said Friday that he expects to begin a rehab assignment "in the next week or so."

Kiermaier's recovery from a fractured hip is going very well, and he expects to be ready for activation from the disabled list when first eligible on August 9. The speedy outfielder is a good stash option in fantasy leagues where he was dropped.

Jaime Garcia is expected to make his scheduled start with the Braves on Friday against the Dodgers.

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reported Thursday that the Braves had agreed to trade Garcia to the Twins, but at the very least the deal appears to be on life support, if not dead. ESPN's Jerry Crasnick says that the Braves are "still talking to a number of clubs" about the left-hander.

Steven Souza (hip) is not in the Rays' lineup Friday.

Souza avoided a serious hip injury on an awkward slide Wednesday, but he could still miss a few games. Shane Peterson is in right field Friday.
Jul 21 - 3:31 PM

Yadier Molina was a late scratch from Friday's lineup due to right ankle discomfort.

It's unclear when the ankle began bothering Molina, who had a day off Thursday. Consider him day-to-day. Carson Kelly has taken Molina's spot behind the plate in what will be his first start in the majors this season.

Phillies activated INF/OF Howie Kendrick from the 10-day disabled list.

Kendrick played just one rehab game and is feeling well enough to rejoin the big league roster. He's missed the last three-plus weeks with a strained left hamstring. The Phillies will be auditioning Kendrick for a trade before the end of the month.

Mariners acquired LHP Marco Gonzales from the Cardinals in exchange for OF Tyler O'Neill.

A former first-round pick, Gonzales has been excellent in his first season back from Tommy John surgery, posting a 2.78 ERA and 64/17 K/BB ratio over 74 1/3 innings in the minors. The left-hander is a high-floor, low-ceiling type player who should be a solid mid- to back-end of the rotation option for the Mariners. It shouldn't be long before he gets a shot for them in the majors.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Twins' trade for Jaime Garcia could fall through.

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reported Thursday that the two sides had reached an agreement on a trade, but there appears to be a snag. Garcia has a long history of injury issues, especially involving his pitching shoulder, so it's possible a physical issue might be the concern. Garcia is currently still penciled in to start for the Braves on Friday against the Dodgers, but Aaron Blair is in Los Angeles and will fill in if the deal goes through.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Brewers have been "aggressive" in trade talks for Justin Wilson.

Other teams have been as well, of course, with Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reporting earlier this week that 10-12 clubs were in on the left-handed reliever. Wilson seems likelier to set up than close wherever he winds up, and that would be the case in Milwaukee.
