Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports that the Yankees are close to finalizing a two-year deal with Ichiro Suzuki worth $12-13 million.

It's the same figure that CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported earlier. Feinsand says the two sides are "putting the finishing touches on the deal," so it sounds like it could be finished up Thursday night. It's a little surprising Ichiro was able to get two years, though that's what the Yanks had to do to keep him after the Phillies reportedly offered a two-year, $14 million pact.

Jean Segura (forearm) remains out of the Mariners' starting lineup on Friday night against the Red Sox.

Segura is on antibiotics after being diagnosed Thursday with an infection in his right forearm. It has caused some discomfort and swelling, but he is expected to avoid the disabled list. Andrew Romine will start at shortstop and bat ninth Friday versus Red Sox knuckleballer Steven Wright.

Braves placed RHP Mike Soroka on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.

Soroka struggled in his last start Tuesday against the Blue Jays, yielding four runs over 4 2/3 innings. It's unclear how long the 20-year-old might be sidelined. He just missed a month with a right shoulder strain, so the Braves figure to play this cautiously.

Brett Gardner (knee) is back in the Yankees' starting lineup Friday night against the Rays.

Gardner will start in left field and bat leadoff after missing five straight games with a sore right knee. The 34-year-old has five homers, seven stolen bases, and 42 runs scored in 59 games played this season.

Phillies signed INF Danny Espinosa to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Espinosa will give the Phillies some emergency organizational infield depth with J.P. Crawford out 4-6 weeks after suffering a fractured left hand. Espinosa, 31, has batted just .190/.236/.276 in 125 plate appearances this season between the Triple-A affiliates of the Blue Jays and Dodgers. He posted a .523 OPS with three different major league clubs in 2017.

Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo told Jim Bowden of MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM that he is not willing to meet the Marlins' asking price on J.T. Realmuto.

This could be posturing, but Rizzo was pretty direct: "They’ve got a great player in Realmuto," said the Nats' GM. "They’re not going to sell him cheap. We know what the return has to be on Realmuto, and we’re not willing to meet that price. So unless something changes there, on their end, we’re going to go with [Matt] Wieters when he gets healthy and a combination of [Pedro] Severino and [Spencer] Kieboom to back him up." Realmuto, 27, is batting .297/.355/.524 with nine home runs and 27 RBI in 54 games this season for a Marlins team that stands 29-46. He is under club control through 2020.

Khris Davis (illness) is back in the A's starting lineup for the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

Davis will DH and bat cleanup against White Sox right-hander James Shields after missing one game with a stomach bug. The 30-year-old slugger boasts an .850 OPS with 20 home runs and 49 RBI in 64 games this season.

White Sox activated OF Avisail Garcia from the 10-day disabled list.

Garcia will return to the White Sox active roster for Friday's doubleheader against the A's after missing nearly two months with a Grade 2 strain of his right hamstring. The 27-year-old outfielder was batting just .233/.250/.315 in 76 plate appearances before the injury, but he's capable of much better results moving forward. Garcia went 9-for-25 (.360) with three home runs, three doubles, and nine RBI on his seven-game minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte.

An MRI taken Thursday on Michael Wacha's left oblique showed a "moderate" strain.

That's relatively good news, but Wacha could still miss over a month of action. The 26-year-old right-hander suffered the injury in the fourth inning of his start Wednesday against the Phillies and was placed on the disabled list Thursday. He was sporting a strong 8-2 record, 3.20 ERA, and 71 strikeouts through 64 1/3 innings (15 starts) this season with the Cardinals, who will either turn to John Gant, Daniel Poncedeleon, or Dakota Hudson to fill the vacant rotation spot.

Tyler Skaggs (hamstring) is aiming to start Monday against the Royals or Tuesday against the Red Sox.

That makeup-game matchup in Kansas City would obviously be more favorable for fantasy purposes. Skaggs was scratched from his scheduled start Thursday night against the Blue Jays after experiencing some tightness in his right hamstring, but it looks like he will avoid the disabled list. The 26-year-old left-hander holds an impressive 2.81 ERA and 86/24 K/BB ratio in 80 innings (14 starts) this season with the Angels.

Luis Valbuena went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and three total RBI in Thursday's 8-5 win over the Blue Jays.

Valbuena connected for his first home run of the game (a two-run shot) off of John Axford with two outs in the fifth inning. He would follow that up with a solo home run to lead off the seventh inning. This was the veteran infielder's second two-homer game of the year and his first contest with a long ball since May 29. He's up to eight dingers on the season. While Valbuena does have a decent little bit of pop -- he's cracked double-digit home runs in each of the past five seasons -- there's just not enough to cling to for consistent fantasy work. He is slashing .222/.271/.369 in 65 games this year.

Eric Thames went 2-for-5 with a three-run triple and two runs scored as the Brewers pounded the Cardinals 11-3 on Thursday.

Thames' big blow, which came well after the bell would have sounded to stop the fight, was indicative of the night as a whole -- a Brewers batter hit the ball, and a Cardinals fielder wasn't able to make the play. This one came in the seventh inning as Thames drove a John Gant pitch to deep center that Tommy Pham was only able to knock down to keep it from being a grand slam, instead providing Thames his first triple of the year. After a long layoff due to a UCL tear in his left thumb, Thames is back and is hitting .233/.330/.589 with nine homers, 20 RBI and 16 runs scored in 30 games played this year.
