According to ESPN Boston's Gordon Edes, the Red Sox are still interested in free agent Nick Swisher.

The Red Sox have already committed $78 million to Shane Victorino and Mike Napoli but are prepared to spend more. They've even been linked in recent weeks to Josh Hamilton. Swisher, 32, is also drawing interest from the Giants, Yankees, Mariners and Indians. He batted .272/.364/.473 with 24 home runs and 93 RBI in 148 games this past season for New York.

Buster Posey went 2-for-6 with a three-run home run in Thursday's 12-6 win over the A's.

Posey slugged a three-run homer to center off A's starter Dillon Overton in the third inning. The stalwart backstop has notched multiple hits in three of the last five games. On the whole, he is slashing .288/.349/.464 with 18 doubles, nine homers and 39 RBI across 267 at-bats.

Madison Bumgarner posted a rare misstep of a start in Thursday's 12-6 win over the A's, allowing four runs on seven hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Bumgarner made headlines before the game, as the Giants became the first team to forego the DH since 1976, allowing the southpaw ace to take his hacks. He doubled in his first at-bat for his lone hit of the game. Bumgarner finished 1-for-4 at the dish. As for the pitching side of things (he does that, too), not so hot. At least by his lofty standards. A sign of his dominance, the four earned runs on Thursday were the most he has yielded in 17 starts. He will carry a 2.20 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 126/29 K/BB ratio into a home start against the Rockies. As the schedule stands right now, that would be his last start before the All-Star Break.

Chase d'Arnaud went 2-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a stolen base in the Braves' 8-5 win over the Marlins on Thursday.

D'Arnaud scored the first run of the game for the Braves in the third inning, motoring around from first base on Freddie Freeman's triple, and he added RBI hits in the sixth and eighth innings. The 29-year-old, who has played five different positions for the Braves this year, is batting a respectable .276/.349/.366 in 42 games. He's not much to look at, but those in deep NL-only leagues may want to take notice.

Cameron Maybin went 3-for-4 with four RBI, including a three-run double in the ninth inning that capped an eight-run inning for the visitors, as the Tigers beat the Rays 10-7 on Thursday.

Maybin led off the ninth inning with a single, and five runs later, he finished off the Rays with a bases-loaded double that put the Tigers ahead for good. During a modest six-game hitting streak, Maybin is 11-for-24 with three doubles, seven RBI and five runs scored. He's got 20 RBI and 25 runs scored in 39 games total, and the 29-year-old is hitting .359/.413/.428 on the season.

Danny Espinosa led the charge with two home runs and seven RBI as the Nationals routed the Reds 13-4 on Thursday.

Espinosa made his two hits count, cranking a grand slam off Reds starter Brandon Finnegan in the third inning before launching a three-run blast a frame later. It was a strong finish to what was an impressive month for the 29-year-old, as he closes June with nine homers, 21 RBI and 21 runs scored in the month. Espinosa is doing everything he can to keep Trea Turner in the minors for another day.

Kendrys Morales went 3-for-4 with two doubles and a home run to help the Royals down the Cardinals 4-2 on Thursday.

Morales had an RBI double in the sixth inning before belting a solo dinger in the eighth. The home run was his 11th of the year, giving him 39 RBI and 30 runs scored. Morales now has a six-game hitting streak during which he's a ridiculous 16-for-24 (.667). All six games have been of the multi-hit variety. The scorching-hot stretch has his overall line up to .262/.324/.437.

Jeurys Familia loaded the bases with one out but escaped unscathed Thursday, earning his 27th save in a 4-3 win over the Cubs.

Familia issued a leadoff walk to Miguel Montero and Ben Zobrist followed with a double to put runners in scoring position with no outs. After striking out Kris Bryant, Familia intentionally walked Anthony Rizzo to load the bases. And the high-wire act worked, as the right-hander struck out Willson Contreras and got Javier Baez to pop out to end the game. Familia is still without a blown save in 27 chances, owning a 2.82 ERA and 1.23 WHIP through 38 1/3 innings.

Carlos Carrasco struck out a season-high 14 batters over 7 1/3 innings Thursday, allowing just one run in the Indians' 4-1 win over the Blue Jays.

Carrasco yielded just three hits, including a Josh Donaldson solo homer, while walking two on the evening. The 14 punchouts were easily his highest total this season, blowing away his previous high of eight. He had four double-digit strikeout games in his breakout 2015 season. Carrasco has been brilliant in 10 starts this season, posting a 2.56 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 63/15 K/BB ratio. The 29-year-old will next set his sights on the Tigers when the teams meet Tuesday.

Cuban infielder Yulieski Gurriel posted a picture of himself wearing Yankees gear on his Instagram account.

That would suggest he had a workout with the team on Thursday. It's Gurriel's fourth known workout after previous visits with the Astros, Mets and Dodgers. It's unclear where he would fit on the Yankees with Chase Headley installed at third base and Starlin Castro at second. We'd expect Gurriel to sign shortly after the international signing window opens on July 2.

Andrew Heaney (elbow) will undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery on Friday.

The operation will be performed by Los Angeles-based surgeon Dr. Neal ElAttrache. Heaney received a stem cell injection two months ago in hopes of avoiding Tommy John surgery but it didn't make much of a difference. It's possible Heaney could return late next season but spring training of 2018 might be a more realistic timetable.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, Jay Bruce would "very likely" waive his no-trade clause to join the Indians.

It seems inevitable at this point that Bruce will be dealt and Cleveland might be his best landing spot. The Indians are beginning to run away with the AL Central and they have a need at outfield with Michael Brantley still recovering from biceps and shoulder injuries. Bruce has improved his stock by hitting .290 this month with seven jacks and 26 RBI. The 29-year-old has a club option for next season.
