Latest Headlines

According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports, the Mets are on the verge of trading R.A. Dickey to the Blue Jays.

Passan hears that Blue Jays would send prospect catcher Travis d'Arnaud back to the Mets, but similar to a report by Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, more players are involved in the trade. The teams are currently looking at medicals, so it doesn't sound far off from being official.

Maikel Franco (wrist) will take batting practice on Wednesday.

The feeling at the time when Franco was placed on the disabled list with a fractured left wrist was that there was a good chance his season would be over. However, it's now looking very likely that he'll be back at some point in September. "Once he does that -- getting a few at-bats and taking some batting practice -- I might run him right in there if he's 100 percent," Phillies interim manager Pete Mackanin said.

Hunter Pence (oblique) took 20 swings off a tee on Monday but still was feeling pain.

Alex Pavlovic of CSNBayArea.com says Pence's left oblique injury is "worse than the Giants first thought" and "it's going to be a while" before the outfielder returns. Obviously it's a major blow to the Giants' postseason hopes. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported earlier Monday that San Francisco was having trade talks with the Red Sox regarding Alejandro De Aza.
Aug 31 - 7:42 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Monday that it's "realistic" Enrique Hernandez (hamstring) to be sidelined for a couple weeks.

Hernandez strained his hamstring during Sunday's game. The 24-year-old had been receiving the lion's share of playing time in center field of late with Joc Pederson's struggles. Pederson, who has just five hits in his last 60 at-bats, is in there Monday.
Aug 31 - 7:23 PM

Brandon Crawford (oblique) is back in the Giants' lineup Monday.

Crawford hasn't played since tweaking his left oblique last Tuesday, but he's back in there just in time for the big series versus the Dodgers. The shortstop sports a .265/.324/.482 batting line with 19 homers and 75 RBI this season.
Aug 31 - 6:20 PM

Cubs acquired OF Austin Jackson and cash considerations from the Mariners in exchange for a player to be named later and international slot No. 98.

Jackson is hitting just .272/.312/.387 this season, but he gives the Cubs more depth and offers them another option in the outfield with Jorge Soler (oblique) injured. He's slated to hit free agency after the season.
Aug 31 - 6:10 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Giants are "still talking" to the Red Sox about Alejandro De Aza.

Rosenthal notes that San Francisco "would prefer to add an infielder," but it's "possible" they wind up with De Aza. De Aza could offer them protection with Hunter Pence (oblique) still on the shelf and Angel Pagan's health status always shaky. The veteran outfielder has hit .292/.347/.484 in 60 games for the Red Sox.
Aug 31 - 6:04 PM

Carlos Martinez will not make his scheduled start on Tuesday due to a back injury.

It looks like a move made to give Martinez some rest as much (or more) than it is about a back injury. He's currently on pace to throw 192 2/3 innings, which would eclipse last season's career-high workload by about 80 frames. Martinez should be ready to go early next week. Marco Gonzales will start in Martinez's place Tuesday.
Aug 31 - 5:54 PM

Corey Dickerson (ribs) will take batting practice on Monday.

It will be his first time doing so since he suffered non-displaced fractures of two ribs back in late July. Dickerson probably half-jokingly said that he could play Tuesday if the Rockies would let him, but they won't. Regardless, it does appear he's making progress so we can't rule out him regaining fantasy relevance in September.
Aug 31 - 5:40 PM

Rougned Odor (finger) is back in the Rangers' lineup Monday.

It's Odor's first start since he cracked the fingernail on his right middle finger last Tuesday. The young infielder has hit .336/.369/.581 since returning from the minors.
Aug 31 - 5:30 PM

Yunel Escobar (hand) is back in the Nationals' lineup Monday.

It's his first game since he was hit on the right hand by a pitch last Thursday. Escobar has had a surprisingly nice season with a .308/.367/.423 batting line and nine homers.
Aug 31 - 4:43 PM

Mark Teixeira (shin) has been sent back to New York to undergo more tests and has been ruled out for the series versus the Red Sox.

The Yankees wish they had a mulligan on this one, as it's clear Teixeira should have been placed on the disabled list a while ago. As it is, they won't make a move now with rosters expanding on Tuesday. Obviously more will be known when the test results come back, but Teixeira is simply in too much pain to play now. Alex Rodriguez is expected to get a start at first base on Wednesday, but Greg Bird will continue to play versus righties.
