Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said Thursday there is "mutual interest" between the club and Clayton Kershaw in working out a contract extension.

"This is not going to be a daily discussion point for us publicly," Colletti said. "But there is a mutual interest." Kershaw said late last month that the two sides had not yet started negotiating a new deal, and Colletti did not say Thursday whether they had talked yet. It's clear, though, that both sides are interested in getting something done well before Kershaw hits free agency after the 2014 season.

Anthony Rizzo (back) is not expected to return to the lineup this weekend.

Rizzo was pulled from Tuesday's game due to tightness in his lower back and has yet to progress enough to return to the lineup. He'll hope to be back in the lineup during the Cubs' homestand, which begins Monday. Chris Valaika will once again draw the start at first base in his place.

Rusney Castillo will make his professional debut with the Gulf Coast League Red Sox on Sunday.

He'll play in the Gulf Coast League finals on Sunday, before progressing to join Double-A Portland or Triple-A Pawtucket for their respective postseason series. He's expected to reach the Red Sox at some point in September.

Yasmani Grandal hit a walk-off RBI single in the 12th inning to help the Padres overcome the Dodgers on Friday.

Grandal was 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in the game prior to his single. The 25-year-old has otherwise had a tough season, slashing .210/.309/.372 with 11 home runs and 34 RBI in 337 plate appearances.

Buster Posey went 5-for-5 with a triple, three RBI, and three runs scored as the Giants routed the Brewers on Friday.

It's the second five-hit game of Posey's career, and it continues the catcher's fantastic month of August. Since the beginning of the month, Posey is batting .350 (36-for-103). He singled in a run in the second inning and tripled in two more in the fifth. Posey owns a .297/.352/.472 slash line with 18 home runs and 71 RBI.

Anthony Rendon reached base in all five plate appearances in Friday's win against the Mariners.

Rendon finished a triple short of the cycle. He drove in his only run with a first inning solo home run to left-center off of Felix Hernandez. He has been just what the Nationals needed at third base after losing Ryan Zimmerman to an injury. Rendon has 18 home runs, 71 RBI, 13 stolen bases, and a .282/.341/.471 slash line.

Chris Iannetta drew a bases-loaded walk and hit a two-run home run in four at-bats as the Angels shut out the Athletics on Friday.

Iannetta came into the game mired in a slump, hitting .056 (1-for-18) dating back to August 20. He broke a scoreless tie with his two-run shot off of Jon Lester in the fifth inning, then walked with the bases loaded to force in a run in the sixth. The catcher has quietly put together a productive season, slashing .257/.372/.412 with six home runs and 37 RBI in 309 plate appearances.

Jake Lamb's eighth-inning grand slam gave the D'Backs the lead and, shortly thereafter, the win against the Rockies on Friday.

The D'Backs had the bases loaded with nobody out and appeared well on their way to squandering their golden opportunity after two unproductive outs. Lamb then slugged a 420-foot grand slam to center field off of Adam Ottavino to put his team up 5-2. Lamb finished 1-for-4 on the evening. The 23-year-old rookie hasn't had a whole lot of success at the plate to begin his career, slashing .218/.279/.345 with a pair of homers and nine RBI.
Aug 30 - 12:35 AM

Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-for-5 with a triple and a two-run homer in Friday's 6-3 win over the Blue Jays.

The red-hot Ellsbury now has four homers and nine RBI over his last five games. Unfortunately, he hurt his left ankle on a slide into home plate in the ninth inning. Tests came back negative, but he was limping after the game and might not be able to play Saturday.

Jose Bautista smacked a solo homer against the Blue Jays on Friday.

Bautista has now gone deep in three straight games. He's now up to 27 home runs on the year, which ties him with teammate Edwin Encarnacion for sixth in the majors.

Justin Verlander was terrific in Friday’s victory over the White Sox, allowing just one run on nine hits over seven strong innings of work.

Verlander racked up eight strikeouts on the evening while issuing just two free passes. The only blemish on his evening was a sacrifice fly off the bat of Adam Dunn in the first inning. It has been a hugely disappointing season for the former Cy Young award winner, who owns a 4.68 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 132/60 K/BB ratio through 171 1/3 innings. He’ll look to carry over this dominant effort when he does battle against the Indians in Cleveland on Wednesday.
Aug 29 - 11:47 PM

Chris Davis smashed a grand slam in Friday's win over the Twins.

It was the big blow in a five-run fifth inning against Trevor May. Davis has three hits in his last seven games and they all happened to be home runs. He's now up to 24 homers on the year, but he's done it with a lousy .189/.292/.400 batting line.
