Padres and LHP Clayton Richard avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year $5.24 million contract.

Richard was the last arbitration eligible player remaining in the league, meaning that no cases will go to arbitration this season. He posted a respectable 3.99 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 2012, and is a strong fantasy option when used for his home starts at Petco Park.

Wilson Ramos needed six staples to close a laceration on his head after he was hit by a shattered bat Monday.

The Orioles' Ruben Tejada's bat broke on a backswing and the barrel struck Ramos in the head in a scary incident at Tropicana Field. The Rays will continue to evaluate Ramos and would figure to put him through concussion protocol.

George Springer departed Monday's game against the Phillies with discomfort in his left quad.

It's unclear when Springer suffered the injury or whether it could potentially be more than a day-to-day situation. The Astros will have an update on their star outfielder after the game.

Johnny Cueto (blisters) could throw a bullpen session Tuesday.

Cueto played catch again Monday and it appears his blister issues have healed for now. The veteran right-hander is expected to rejoin the Giants' rotation before long, although it's unclear whether he'll need a rehab start first.

Dodgers placed LHP Clayton Kershaw on the 10-day disabled list with a lower back strain.

Kershaw suffered the injury during Sunday's start against the Braves. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported earlier Monday that the initial prognosis has Kershaw missing 4-6 weeks, but more will be known after he's examined by Dr. Robert Watkins. Manager Dave Roberts said Monday that it's "not a disc issue" with Kershaw this time like he had last season, which cost him a couple months.

Royals acquired RHPs Trevor Cahill and Brandon Maurer and LHP Ryan Buchter from the Padres in exchange for LHPs Matt Strahm and Travis Wood and INF Esteury Ruiz.

Robert Murray of FanRag Sports first reported the deal and it is now official. Cahill has experienced a big bounce-back season in 2017, posting a 3.69 ERA and 72/24 K/BB ratio over 61 innings. He'll give the Royals some more reliable innings out of the back-end of their rotation. Meanwhile, Maurer and Buchter will supplement Kansas City's relief corps.
Jul 24 - 6:30 PM

Matt Carpenter (quad) is expected back in the Cardinals' lineup Tuesday.

Carpenter isn't playing Monday after exiting Sunday's game with a tight right quad, but manager Mike Matheny said it was simply a dehydration issue and the infielder is feeling much better. Luke Voit is starting at first base Monday.
Jul 24 - 5:47 PM

Dallas Keuchel (neck) is expected to rejoin the Astros' rotation on Friday or Saturday in Detroit.

Collin McHugh will start whichever of the two days Keuchel doesn't. The former Cy Young winner allowed one run on three hits over five innings Saturday for Short-Season Tri-City in his final rehab start. Keuchel has been out since early June with a neck injury.
Jul 24 - 5:33 PM

Twins acquired LHP Jaime Garcia, C Anthony Recker and cash considerations from the Braves in exchange for RHP Huascar Ynoa.

The two sides tentatively agreed to a trade last week, but it was nixed due to physical concerns with Nick Burdi (elbow), who had been slated to go to Atlanta in the deal. Garcia has been up-and-down this season, posting a 4.30 ERA and 85/41 K/BB ratio over 113 innings, but he should offer Minnesota more reliable work at the back of their rotation.

Joel Sherman of New York Post reports that the Braves "have gotten more involved" in trade talks for Sonny Gray.

The Braves aren't really viewed as a legit playoff contender this season, but they've been connected to Gray dating back to the offseason as they seek to obtain a cost-controlled starter. They certainly have the pieces in their farm system to get something done. Sherman notes that the Yankees and Brewers are viewed as the "strongest pursuers" over Gray at this point, with the Astros "still trying, too." The Mariners, Twins and Indians have also been connected to Gray.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that there's been "little indication" to this point that the Rangers will trade Yu Darvish.

The Rangers reported have put out feelers to see what Darvish could potentially bring back in return, but they've won three straight and sit just 2.5 games out of a Wild Card spot. They are also interested in re-signing Darvish to a long-term contract and figure they'd have a better chance to do it if they hang on to him. Unless the Rangers collapse over the next week, it seems likely that they'll hang on to their ace. Sherman notes that Darvish is "pretty much" the Dodgers' "only interest" among starters, so they could stand pat in that regard if the Texas righty isn't made available.
Jul 24 - 4:38 PM

Mets placed RHP Zack Wheeler on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to July 23, with a stress reaction in his right arm.

It doesn't sound good given Wheeler's arm injury history, but the good news is he received a CT scan and was told his elbow and shoulder are fine. It's unclear at this point how long the right-hander will be sidelined, but the out-of-contention Mets certainly figure to proceed cautiously. Tyler Pill has replaced Wheeler on the roster and could get some starts.
