ESPN's Jim Bowden reports that if the Dodgers are unable to sign Ryu Hyun-Jin, they'll shift their attention to Anibal Sanchez.

Even after agreeing to terms with the top free agent pitcher on the market, it appears the Dodgers might go after arguably the second-best hurler. Sanchez is said to be looking for a six-year deal in the $90 million range, and if anyone is willing to give him that much, it's probably the Dodgers. Ultimately, though, there's probably a very good chance they end up working something out with Hyun-Jin.

Eduardo Rodriguez held the Blue Jays to one run in six innings to earn the win on Tuesday.

The lone run came around in the fourth inning on Chris Colabello's RBI single. It was one of only four hits Rodriguez allowed on the evening along with two walks and four strikeouts. It was a nice bounce-back effort as he was shelled in his previous outing. The rookie carries a 3.92 ERA with a 1.11 WHIP and a 36/13 K/BB ratio over 41 1/3 innings. He'll match up with the Astros in a home start next.

Michael Cuddyer admitted that he was "definitely concerned" about the left knee injury that forced him from Tuesday's game versus the Cubs.

Cuddyer said he first felt pain in the knee while running to first base after his first plate appearance, but he wasn't removed until the seventh. The veteran outfielder will undergo an MRI on Wednesday to determine the extent of the damage, but it sounds like a trip to the disabled list could be in the offing.

Chris Davis went 2-for-4 with a pair of two-run home runs, but it wasn't enough in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

Davis also extended his hitting streak to 10 games. He homered for the first time in the first inning, staking the Orioles to an early 2-0 lead. He drilled his second home run in the third inning, breaking a 2-2 tie. The slugger is batting .238/.328/.491 with 18 home runs and 49 RBI as we near the midpoint of the season.

Kyle Hendricks held the Mets scoreless over six innings in Tuesday's 1-0 victory.

Hendricks allowed just three hits and a walk over his six innings. He struck out six in the effort. The win was his first since June 7, raising his record to 3-4 with a 4.15 ERA and 1.18 WHIP. More than that, it righted the ship a bit after a few tough starts for the 25-year-old. He'll try to keep it going Sunday at the Marlins.

Mitch Moreland enjoyed his second consecutive two-homer game, helping the Rangers beat the Orioles on Tuesday.

Moreland also walked in his four plate appearances. He tied the game at two apiece with a two-run home run in the second, then repeated the act in the eighth inning to boost the Rangers' lead to 8-5. Moreland now has 14 home runs, 43 RBI, and a .305/.353/.563 triple-slash line.

Rockies placed RHP John Axford on the temporary inactive list.

Manager Walt Weiss said that the reliever "just has things to take care of at home." He did note that Axford's son, Jameson, who was bitten by a rattlesnake during spring training, is fine. It's not clear how long Axford will be away. LaTroy Hawkins, Rafael Betancourt and Tommy Kahnle could be in the mix for saves in Axford's absence.

Hunter Pence (wrist) took swings off a tee with a fungo bat on Tuesday.

He also played catch as he resumed baseball activities for the first time in nearly two weeks. There remains no timetable for Pence's return, as the Giants will have to see how his ailing left wrist responds to increased activity.

James Paxton (finger) played catch from 60 feet on Tuesday.

It's a nice step, but Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon cautioned that it's "going to be a slow process" for Paxton. "Pax is going to be out for a while," the skipper added. It's not a surprise, as Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune speculated last week that the lefty returning prior to August would be "optimistic."

Ryan Zimmerman (foot) went through a full workout on Tuesday, hitting, fielding grounders and doing some running.

He'll go through a similar workout on Wednesday before being re-evaluated. It's possible at that point Zimmerman will be cleared to begin a rehab assignment, as it would appear he could be activated by next week. "He hasn’t hit a groundball to short and had to run full-speed to first yet, so that’s the telling sign," Nationals manager Matt Williams said. "There’s no way to simulate that unless you get in a game situation and it happens naturally and he reacts. Going five steps to his left to dive for a ball or having to turn first to third, you can’t do it, you can’t simulate that, it’s never the same as being in competition."

Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) did not play in Tuesday's rehab game with High-A Tampa as scheduled due to "general fatigue," according to Yankees manager Joe Girardi.

It's obviously not ideal, but at least it's not a significant setbacks. Ellsbury, who hopes to play Wednesday, had been slated for activation from the disabled list as soon as Friday. That could be pushed back a bit now.

Freddie Freeman (wrist) might be held out until after the All-Star break.

The Braves had been optimistic about getting him back before the break, but that's looking unlikely now. Freeman hasn't had a setback with his right wrist, but it makes sense to give him a little extra time. "We were hoping we could get him shortly after the 15 days, but I think it’s going to be a little longer than that," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "Not quite sure how much longer. We had our fingers crossed and were optimistic to get him (then or soon after), but I think it’s going to be little longer."
