According to Chad Jennings of The Journal News, the Yankees have a deal "in place" with Travis Hafner.

Jennings suspects that an official announcement will be made within the next 24 hours. Hafner struggled to attract much interest this winter on the open market after batting .228/.346/.438 with 12 home runs in 66 games last season for the Indians. He's injury prone but will carry decent fantasy value in New York if he can stay healthy.

DJ LeMahieu (wrist) remained out of the Rockies' lineup Friday.

He hasn't played since Monday because of inflammation in his left wrist. LeMahieu is considered day-to-day. Daniel Descalso is at second base in his place. The Rockies also have Ryan Raburn over David Dahl in left field with the Nationals starting southpaw Gio Gonzalez.

Red Sox activated RHP Steven Wright from the 15-day disabled list.

He'll rejoin the Red Sox' rotation on Friday against the Royals after missing three weeks with a jammed shoulder that he suffered while pinch-running. Wright has mostly faded the last couple months after a terrific start to the season, although he did throw a shutout in his last outing.

Royals manager Ned Yost said Thursday that Wade Davis (forearm) will make "a couple more" rehab appearances before being activated from the disabled list.

Davis allowed one hit and recorded one strikeout in his first rehab appearance with the Royals' Rookie League affiliate in Arizona on Wednesday. Kevin Herrera has been terrific while filling in as the Royals' closer and it's unclear whether Davis will immediately get his job back upon his return.

Hunter Pence said that he is dealing with tightness in his right hamstring.

Pence was lifted for a defensive replacement in the middle innings of Thursday's win over the Dodgers. He will be reevaluated on Friday, but a disabled list stint would be in the cards if this is any kind of a lasting injury.

Corey Seager picked up a dunker of a single with two outs in the ninth inning of Thursday's loss to the Giants, ending Matt Moore's no-hit bid in the process.

Seager stepped to the plate with two outs in the ninth having previously walked against Moore. He would deny him the no-hitter with a little flare single that landed in right field. For the season as a whole, Seager has done quite a bit more than just dunk singles left and right. He is slashing a meaty .322/.377/.538 with 22 homers, 61 RBI and 86 runs scored over 494 at-bats.

Matt Moore came within one out of a no-hitter in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Dodgers.

Moore struck out seven and walked three on the evening. Manager Bruce Bochy was noticeably agitated in the dugout as the 27-year-old southpaw's pitch count began to balloon in a 24-pitch eighth inning. Moore had thrown 120 total pitches by the end of that frame, but despite the high count, Bochy decided to trot him out for the ninth. He retired Kike Hernandez on a sinking liner to start the frame -- Denard Span made a spectacular sliding catch on that one -- then induced a ground out from Howie Kendrick. Corey Seager would break up the near no-no via a flare single to right with two outs in the frame. Ouch. He finished the game having thrown 133 pitches (88 strikes). Since coming over to the Giants at the trade deadline, Moore has pitched to a 3.41 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 29/20 K/BB ratio over 31 2/3 innings (five starts). He will look to build off of Thursday's stellar outing in a home start against the Diamondbacks next time he toes the rubber.

Todd Frazier went 2-for-5 with three RBI, including a walk-off RBI single in the ninth inning, as the White Sox edged the Mariners 7-6 on Thursday.

Frazier yanked a Steve Cishek pitch through the left side of the infield in the seventh inning to plate two runs and tie the game, and he finished what he started two innings later. That time, he pulled a Nick Vincent offering over the third baseman's head and into the left field corner to bring home the winning run. Driving in runs is one thing the 30-year-old has done well this year, collecting 80 RBI, and he's also got 31 home runs. Those numbers have helped redeem a disappointing .211/.293/.447 line overall.

Matt Wisler was fantastic in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Diamondbacks, tossing eight innings of two-hit, one-run ball.

Wisler wasn't particularly adept at hitting the strike zone -- he walked three and only managed strikes on 62 of 103 pitches -- but the Diamondbacks were unable to square him up. Jean Segura and Paul Goldschmidt managed singles against the 23-year-old right-hander, with Goldschmidt scoring on a Chris Owings ground out in the seventh inning. That was it for the damage on Wisler's watch. This was his first major league appearance since late July and dropped his ERA from 5.16 to 4.92. Baby steps. Wisler will try for a similar result when he returns to his home confines to help play host to the Padres next time he toes the rubber.

Andrew McCutchen went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI, including the game-winning RBI single in the 10th inning, to lead the Pirates past the Brewers 3-2 on Thursday.

Cutch was up to the task all evening, hitting a solo homer in the first before knocking an RBI single in the third and his game-winner in the 10th. The homer was his 18th of the season to give him 55 RBI and 65 runs scored. It's still not the Andrew McCutchen we've come to know and expect, but he's now hitting .303 in the month of August and is batting .250/.329/.419 in 116 games overall.
Aug 26 - 12:28 AM

Cole Hamels allowed just two hits over eight shutout innings, striking out eight, as the Rangers skunked the Indians 9-0 on Thursday.

Hamels was brilliant, yielding just a pair of singles and not walking a batter in his eight innings. The start was his sixth consecutive quality start and the eighth in a row in which he's allowed three or fewer runs. It shouldn't be surprising, then, that the southpaw is 14-4 with a 2.67 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 26 starts total. Hamels will try to keep rolling Tuesday against the Mariners.
Aug 26 - 12:12 AM

Carlos Gomez wasted little time Thursday endearing himself to Rangers fans, hitting a three-run home run in his first at-bat against the Indians.

Of course, he finished 1-for-4 with the homer and a strikeout, but it's the big fly that people will latch onto. Gomez was so bad with the Astros that they waived him after giving up an attractive package of prospects for him at last year's trade deadline, but the Rangers hope they can catch lightning in a bottle. If they can, Gomez could be in a really good spot with that lineup and ballpark. While those odds remain long, Thursday was a start.
