Lucas Duda (wrist) has begun hitting off a tee.

"It's going well, feels great," Duda said of his surgically-repaired right wrist. Duda, who fractured his wrist while moving furniture in his apartment, will be just fine for the start of spring training. The Mets are counting on the soon-to-be 27-year-old to be their left fielder in 2013.

Cardinals placed LHP Jaime Garcia on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 25, with a left groin strain.

Garcia got through a bullpen session on Saturday without any apparent issues with his groin, but he reported some discomfort when he arrived at the park Sunday. The Cardinals are hoping he'll be ready to go right after the All-Star break. Tyler Lyons and Tim Cooney will now start during Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Cubs.

Yordano Ventura (hand) is expected to skip his final rehab start and rejoin the Royals' rotation, likely on Thursday versus the Rays.

Ventura had been pegged to take the ball on Monday for Triple-A Omaha in a final tune-up, but it appears the club has decided he doesn't need that outing. "He's ready," manager Ned Yost said. Ventura has been on the shelf since mid-June with ulnar neuritis in his pitching hand.

Cubs activated OF Jorge Soler from the 15-day disabled list.

Soler went just 2-for-13 with four strikeouts during his four-game rehab stint with Triple-A Iowa, but his ankle is feeling fine and that's all the Cubs really care about. The youngster missed just over a month of action with a sprained left ankle.

Carlos Gomez (wrist) is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

Gomez had to exit Saturday's contest after being hit on the left wrist by a pitch. X-rays came back clean and he's expected to be fine, but the outfielder is surely sore. Gerardo Parra is handling center field Sunday.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Angels have had trade discussions with the Brewers regarding Adam Lind and Gerardo Parra.

Rosenthal notes that the talks about Parra came before former general manager Jerry Dipoto resigned and that "nothing was close" to getting done. Still, both Parra and Lind make a lot of sense for the Halos since they're in need of left field and designated hitter help. The Brewers have caught fire of late, but they still figure to be sellers at the deadline and both Lind and Parra likely will be on the move.

Josh Hamilton could be placed back on the disabled list with a strained groin.

It's being called a groin strain, but Rangers manager Jeff Banister admitted that Hamilton's "whole lower half" has been an issue since he went on the disabled list with a strained hamstring at the end of May. The results of an MRI Saturday haven't been revealed yet, but it appears Hamilton could be shut down again. "Obviously, we’ll see where he is throughout the night," Banister said Saturday. "We’ll continue to try to manage how he feels. This is a guy we’d like to have for an extended period of time. I’m trying my best to figure this whole thing out with him and what is best for Josh."

In his return from Tommy John surgery, Patrick Corbin pitched five innings of two-run ball and recorded a win over the Rockies on Saturday.

Corbin allowed eight hits, three for extra bases, but he was able to spread them around enough to leave with a lead. It helped a lot that he walked no one. His fastball was consistently in the low-90s, and 56 of his 76 pitches were strikes. Corbin isn't a recommended mixed-league pitcher just yet, but he definitely has the ability. He's well worth the flier in deeper leagues.

Joe Mauer went 4-for-5 with a double and a two-run home run in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Royals.

Did somebody ask for fireworks in Kansas City? Mauer wasted little time putting the Twins on the board this Fourth of July, taking Joe Blanton deep to right after a Brian Dozier single in the first inning and staking his team to a 2-0 lead. Mauer would also double and single in the contest to finish 4-for-5. Despite a relatively light (by his standards) slash-line of .272/.341/.388, Mauer's been a productive run-producer and has now driven in 43 runs. His career best for RBI in a season was 96 in 2009 and while he's unlikely match that this year, an RBI total in the mid-to-high 80's is within reach at the rate he's currently going.
Jul 4 - 11:08 PM

Zach Greinke continued his run of dominance in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Mets, throwing seven innings of shutout ball while allowing just four hits.

With the win, Greinke improved to 7-2 on the year. He struck out four without walking a batter and now carries a 1.48 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 97/20 K/BB ratio across 115 1/3 innings. There's not much we can say that the numbers don't say themselves. Up next for Greinke's slicing and dicing pleasure, the Philadelphia Phillies.
Jul 4 - 10:44 PM

Carlos Gomez left Saturday's game against the Reds with a left wrist contusion.

He went 0-for-2 with a strikeout before exiting in the sixth inning. His X-rays came back negative and the Brewers are listing him as day-to-day. Gerardo Parra is likely to play center field if Gomez gets the day off on Sunday.
Jul 4 - 10:16 PM

Kris Bryant had a monster game in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Marlins, homering twice and driving in six runs.

Bryant eradicated Marlins starter Jarred Cosart from this earth, hitting a two-run homer in the first inning and following it up with a grand slam in the second to drive Cosart from the mound. This was Bryant's second multi-homer game of the season and he's now socked 12 dingers and driven in 49 runs over 70 games since being called up in late April. The rookie sports a .278/.381/.486 triple-slash and figures to be a front-runner for the NL Rookie of the Year award come the end of the season.
