Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that Mets general manager Sandy Alderson and assistant general manager John Ricco traveled to Houston last week to have dinner with free agent center fielder Michael Bourn and his agent, Scott Boras.

It was described as more of a "getting-to-know-you session" than a negotiation, but it shows that the Mets are seriously considering making a run at Bourn. Still, the Mets don't want to give more than three years to a player who relies on his legs and will not sign him without "iron-clad assurances" they only have to surrender a second-round pick. Meanwhile, the commissioner's office is against making an exception for the Mets this late in the offseason. The combination of factors makes an agreement between the two sides a long shot.

Alex Wood is questionable for his next start due to soreness in his left triceps.

Wood woke up with the discomfort Tuesday after lasting just five innings Monday in a loss to the Cubs. He was set up for a juicy weekend matchup against the Braves. There should be an update Wednesday.

Steve Pearce (elbow) is back in the Rays' starting lineup on Tuesday night.

He'll start at second base and bat cleanup versus Royals right-hander Dillon Gee. Pearce made an early exit Monday with elbow discomfort, but he told reporters Tuesday that it's nothing more than inflammation.

Yunel Escobar (wrist) remains out Tuesday.

Escobar bruised his right wrist Sunday while diving for a ball and hasn't played since. He is still considered day-to-day. Jefry Marte will start at third base and bat fifth Tuesday night against the Tigers.

Stephen Piscotty (illness) is back in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night.

Piscotty missed Monday's series opener at Milwaukee Park with food poisoning. He is starting in right field and batting cleanup in his return to action Tuesday versus Brewers right-hander Wily Peralta.

According to MLB.com's Mark Bowman, the Braves are finalizing a trade that will send veteran reliever Jason Grilli to the Blue Jays.

It sounds like the negotiations could be wrapped up at some point Tuesday night. Grilli was sporting a rough 5.29 ERA, 1.71 WHIP, and 23/13 K/BB ratio through 17 innings this season out of the Atlanta bullpen. This is his age-39 campaign. Atlanta will get minor league right-hander Sean Ratcliffe in return, per Robert Murray of BaseballEssential.com.

Ryan Braun (neck) is back in the Brewers' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Cardinals.

Braun acknowledged Monday that he doesn't have full mobility in his neck, but he'll try to give it a go in the second game of a three-game set at Miller Park. He missed three straight days with neck stiffness.

According to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Rangers have discussed keeping Jurickson Profar around after Rougned Odor's suspension ends.

Hanser Alberto would also remain on the active roster and the Rangers would go with a seven-man bullpen. Profar is 6-for-18 (.333) since his callup on Friday and he was slashing 284/.356/.426 with five homers and four steals in 189 plate appearances this season with Triple-A Round Rock. The former top prospect might have finally found some footing at the major league level, though it's still pretty loose.
May 31 - 4:36 PM

Trayce Thompson (back) is in the Dodgers' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Cubs.

He will start in left field and bat fifth versus Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta. Thompson missed a couple of games in a row with some minor soreness in his back.
May 31 - 4:17 PM

James Loney has officially been added to the Mets' 25-man roster.

Loney was acquired from the Padres on Saturday for cash and will be thrown into the Mets' starting lineup Tuesday night against the White Sox. He should start regularly at first base against right-handed pitching, at least until Lucas Duda (back) returns. Loney was hitting the ball well at Triple-A El Paso before the trade and is worthy of consideration in deeper fantasy formats now that he's in a good position for playing time.

David Wright was given a pain-killing injection for his neck injury on Tuesday.

The veteran third baseman revealed to reporters Monday that he's been diagnosed with a herniated disk in his neck and he is out of the Mets' starting lineup on Tuesday night. The hope is this pain-killing injection will help him avoid the 15-day disabled list.
May 31 - 4:04 PM

Alex Rodriguez is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

Carlos Beltran will get a second straight start out of the DH spot. Meanwhile, Rob Refsnyder will make the start in right field.
