Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Mariners are in agreement on a one-year deal with Joe Saunders, pending a physical.

The financial details aren't yet known. It's a little surprising that Saunders had to wind up settling for a one-year deal given that a handful of teams were interested in him, but perhaps the M's offered a higher AAV. Saunders is a similar pitcher to Jason Vargas, the guy he's essentially replacing, and should give Seattle a solid back-end guy. The fences coming in at Safeco won't help him, though.

Carlos Rodon and the White Sox have agreed upon a deal for more than $6.45 million, pending a physical, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

The third overall selection in the 2014 MLB Draft, Rodon got more than the $5.7 million slot amount. WRAL-TV's Jeff Graley, who first broke the news of the agreement, expects Rodon to be assigned to High-A Winston-Salem. He should be a fast-moving prospect who could be in Chicago at some point in 2015.

Roberto Hernandez needed only 84 pitches to hold the Brewers to one run over eight innings in Wednesday's victory.

Hernandez very easily could have taken the hill for the ninth inning, but manager Ryne Sandberg opted to let closer Jonathan Papelbon pick up the save. Hernandez limited the Brewers to three hits and two walks while striking out three in his most dominant start of the season. Now with a 4.22 ERA, a 1.45 WHIP, and a 70/51 K/BB ratio, Hernandez will face the Braves in Atlanta when the Phillies return from the All-Star break.

Doug Fister improved his record to 8-2 after limiting the Orioles to two runs over seven innings on Wednesday.

Fister put together his fourth consecutive quality start, holding the Orioles to seven hits -- including Manny Machado's solo home run -- and two walks while striking out three. Fister has turned out to be exactly what the Nationals hoped for when they traded for him, as he now carries a 2.90 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and a 45/8 K/BB ratio. When the Nationals return from the All-Star break, Fister will take the hill against the Brewers at home.

Billy Hamilton left Wednesday's game against the Cubs with a tight left hamstring.

Hamilton was seen grabbing his hamstring during his last at-bat, and he was double-switched out by manager Bryan Price in the eighth inning. The Reds should provide more information on the severity of the injury after the game.

Brandon Phillips left Wednesday's game against the Cubs with a sprained left thumb.

The injury initially appeared to be to his wrist, but the Reds clarified shortly after. Phillips hurt the thumb diving for a ball in the eighth inning. X-rays on the thumb came back negative, a good sign, but there's still no indication of how much time he might miss with the injury. We likely won't see him until after the All-Star break regardless.

In his first start since May 10, Dillon Gee held the Braves to one run over seven innings en route to his fourth win on Wednesday.

Gee had been out for nearly two months with a strained lat. His effort helped the Mets extend their winning streak to four games and they'll go for a series sweep against the Braves on Thursday. The right-hander held the Braves to six hits and a walk while striking out four. Gee, now 4-1, has a 2.56 ERA, a 1.06 WHIP, and a 37/16 K/BB ratio. He'll take the hill after the All-Star break, taking on the Padres in San Diego.

Yadier Molina left Wednesday's game against the Pirates with a right thumb sprain.

Trainers checked on Molina after he slid into third base in the second inning, and Tony Cruz pinch hit for him an inning later. The Cardinals said he will be re-evaluated on Thursday.

Carlos Ruiz (concussion) has been cleared to resume baseball activities after his second positive IMPACT test in three days.

Ruiz hasn't played since he was hit in the helmet by a pitch on June 26. Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro had previously said Ruiz will start baseball activities this weekend if Wednesay's test went well. If things continue to progress, the catcher will likely be ready to go shortly after the All-Star break.

Adam Lind will miss the next six to eight weeks with a non-displaced fracture in his right foot.

Lind played in games as recently as Monday, but an MRI revealed the fracture after the first basemen felt some discomfort in the foot. It's a huge blow for the struggling Blue Jays, as they're already missing Edwin Encarnacion for the next few weeks.
Jul 9 - 8:05 PM

Albert Pujols went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 8-7 win over the Blue Jays.

Pujols had a string of four straight multi-hit games snapped with an 0-for-4 night Tuesday, but he was right back at it on Wednesday. The home run, his 20th of the year, gave the Angels a one-run lead, and they ended up winning by the same margin. He also scored a run in the third inning. His strong push has his season line at .270/.321/.489 with a few days left before the All-Star break.
Jul 9 - 7:33 PM

The Giants are aiming to activate Marco Scutaro (back) from the disabled list on Friday.

The tentative plan is for Scutaro to play a full nine innings with Triple-A Fresno on Thursday, with the team activating him before Friday's game if all goes well. Scutaro hasn't played a game yet this season due to chronic back problems, but he could be a big boost to the Giants in the second half.
