Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that Diamondbacks have had recent conversations with the Padres, Rangers and Mariners regarding a Justin Upton trade.

The D'Backs and Padres have had on-and-off discussions about a potential Upton-for-Chase Headley swap, though not much progress has been made on that front. The Rangers wish to acquire Upton without giving up Jurickson Profar or Elvis Andrus, and are attempting to build a package around Mike Olt, who is the odd man out in Texas after Saturday's signing of Lance Berkman.

J.D. Martinez (hand) is not in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Thursday.

Martinez got hit by a pitch Wednesday in his second-ever at-bat with Arizona and suffered a left hand contusion. X-rays turned up negative, so he should be good to go in a day or two. Chris Herrmann is starting in right field and Daniel Descalso is in left field on Thursday afternoon in Cincinnati.

Diamondbacks placed RHP Taijuan Walker on the paternity leave list.

Patrick Corbin is starting in Walker's place on Thursday afternoon against the Reds. The right-hander should be back with the Diamondbacks sometime this weekend, after welcoming a child into the world.

According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the Mariners are "fairly close" on a trade for Marlins right-hander David Phelps.

MLB.com's Mark Feinsand was first to report word of the Mariners' growing interest in Phelps late Wednesday night. The 30-year-old reliever hasn't been as effective this season as he was in 2016, but he would still fit nicely into a setup role in Seattle and he is controllable through 2018. It sounds like there could be something official soon, though FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal tweeted early Thursday morning that the Marlins are "not in love" with the offerings in the Mariners' farm system.

Xander Bogaerts (hand) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup Thursday against the Blue Jays.

Bogaerts missed a couple of games with a small sprain of a joint in his right hand. He is starting at shortstop and hitting sixth on Thursday afternoon versus Toronto left-hander Francisco Liriano.

Ryan Braun (calf, wrist) remains out of the Brewers' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon.

It's the second straight absence for Braun, who's battling some calf and wrist soreness. These aren't new ailments. Hernan Perez will start in left field and bat fifth versus Pirates right-hander Jameson Taillon.

Zack Cozart went 4-for-6 with a home run and two RBI in an extra-inning, 4-3 win over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

He started things off with an RBI single in the first inning and busted a solo home run in the third frame off starter Zack Greinke. The veteran shortstop has always been a wizard in the field but this is the first season he has excelled at the dish. He was the National League starter at shortstop in his first All Star game last week. He is a free agent at the end of this season and is a prime candidate to be traded before the end of the month. He is batting .321/.400/.566 with 11 home runs, 38 RBI and 45 runs scored in 70 games.

The Royals said after Wednesday's blown save that Kelvin Herrera was still dealing with an illness.

Herrera gave up a two-run homer to Mikie Mahtook in the top of the ninth inning before being lifted from the game. It seemed the Royals made the wrong call by pitching him after he was running a high fever on Tuesday, but they won anyway on a walkoff. Herrera should be considered day-to-day.

Gerrit Cole punched out 10 batters while allowing one run in seven innings as his club defeated the Brewers 3-2 in extra innings on Wednesday.

He didn't get the win but he certainly deserved one. The big right-hander gave up a run in the first inning, then marched through six scoreless frames before being relieved after tossing 103 pitches. He surrendered six hits and didn't walk a batter in the sterling effort. It was the third strong start in a row for Cole after he struggled through the month of June. His record holds at 7-7 with a 4.18 ERA in 20 starts. He has 108 strikeouts and 27 walks in 120 2/3 innings.

Jacob deGrom gave up just one run in 6 2/3 innings to earn a 7-3 victory over the Cardinals on Wednesday.

He rattled off six shutout innings before tiring in the seventh. He walked two batters in that frame and was relieved after throwing 110 pitches. Reliever Jerry Blevins promptly allowed both inherited runners to score. DeGrom improves to 11-3 with a 3.37 ERA in 19 starts. He has a splendid 144/40 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 125 2/3 innings. He lines up for a very attractive two-start week coming up, with road games against the Padres and Mariners on tap.

Following Wednesday's loss to the Red Sox, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons revealed that Aaron Sanchez was lifted due to a blister concern.

This would explain why Sanchez managed to pitch just four innings in the loss. He allowed five runs (three earned) in the short outing. The Blue Jays will reevaluate him on Thursday, but the disabled list could be looming again after already costing him about 10 weeks of the season due to a previous blister concern.
Jul 19 - 10:25 PM

Pablo Sandoval told ESPN's Marly Rivera that he has not yet decided where he will sign following his release from the Red Sox.

MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez was reporting earlier on Wednesday that Sandoval -- who was just released by the Red Sox -- was set for a reunion with the Giants. That may well still happen, but he would not go so far as to confirm it when asked. Said the veteran third baseman, "I'm waiting for Friday to make a decision, and the Giants are one of my options. I have a few teams interested but I won't be making a decision until Friday."
