If USA advances to the final round of the World Baseball Classic, Chase Headley will take David Wright's (ribs) spot on the roster.

Most speculated that it would either be Headley or David Freese, and with Headley already in California (and the final round being played in San Francisco), he's the obvious choice. "This has always been a dream to play for Team USA," Headley said. It's a shame Wright won't be able to shoot for sole possession of the WBC RBI record, but USA won't lose much at third base. Willie Bloomquist or Ben Zobrist will start at the hot corner in Friday's elimination game against Puerto Rico.

According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, the Marlins are "now open to trading" starter Dan Straily.

There have been multiple reports stating the Marlins would not deal controllable assets in the midst of their ownership change, but it appears they'll at least do some shopping around with some of those guys. Straily, who's under control through 2020, owns a 3.84 ERA, 1.185 WHIP, and 107/33 K/BB ratio in 117 1/3 innings (21 starts) this season. He has struggled a bit lately.

Cardinals recalled RHP Luke Weaver from Triple-A Memphis.

Weaver will start for the Cardinals on Thursday night against the Diamondbacks, though it might only be a one-off with Adam Wainwright (back) due to return from the disabled list next week. Weaver, a first-round pick in 2014, boasts a 1.81 ERA and 8.9 K/9 in 51 career minor league starts. He has a 5.26 ERA in 39 1/3 career major league innings.

MLB.com's Mark Feinsand reports that the Twins are "fielding calls" on Ervin Santana and Jaime Garcia.

Minnesota could also move second baseman Brian Dozier and closer Brandon Kintzler ahead of Monday's trade deadline. Santana, a 2017 American League All-Star, boasts a 3.37 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 104/47 K/BB ratio in 136 1/3 innings this season and he leads all MLB pitchers with three shutouts. The 34-year-old right-hander is due $13.5 million in 2018 and he carries a $14 million vesting option for 2019. Garcia was just acquired from the Braves, but the Twins have suddenly lost four straight games.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick says the Astros "might be the most focused team" in pursuit of Tigers reliever Justin Wilson.

Wilson has been connected to just about every contending club, but the talent-rich Astros could probably beat any trade offer if they truly wanted to. Wilson, 29, owns a 2.75 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, and 55/16 K/BB ratio over 39 1/3 innings this season for Detroit, along with 12 saves. The left-hander is under contractual control through 2018.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle believes A's manager Bob Melvin is considering a change at closer.

Santiago Casilla took a blown save and a loss Wednesday against the Blue Jays after surrendering three runs on a pair of homers in the bottom of the ninth inning and he now holds a 4.66 ERA in 39 total appearances this year. Blake Treinen, recently acquired from the Nationals, could be next in line at closer in Oakland. Ryan Dull (knee) just returned from the disabled list but owns an ugly 6.32 ERA in 2017.

Pirates outfield prospect Jordan Luplow is expected to be promoted to the majors on Friday.

The news was broken by the official Twitter account of the Fresno State Bulldogs, Luplow's college team. A third-round pick in 2014, Luplow has batted .296/.377/.543 with 21 home runs and 50 RBI in 94 games this season between Double-A Altoona and Triple-A Indianapolis. He should see regular playing time while Gregory Polanco recovers from a hamstring strain and may be worth a grab in deeper fantasy formats.

Rays acquired LHP Dan Jennings from the White Sox for 1B Casey Gillaspie.

Yet another White Sox reliever out the door. Jennings had registered a 3.45 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 38/19 K/BB ratio in 44 1/3 innings this season for Chicago and will now slide into a left-handed setup role with Tampa Bay. The 30-year-old southpaw is under contractual control through 2019.

Nationals placed RHP Stephen Strasburg on the 10-day disabled list with a right elbow nerve impingement.

Strasburg played long-toss without issue on Wednesday and the plan for now calls for him to miss just one turn in the starting rotation, but the first-place Nationals can afford to play this one cautiously. Erick Fedde, a top-100 prospect, will be promoted from Triple-A Syracuse to pitch in Strasburg's place on Saturday against the Rockies.
Jul 27 - 9:28 AM

Justin Turner played the role of hero on Wednesday, delivering a walk-off RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning against the Twins.

You just can't ever count this team out. The Dodgers trailed 5-0 heading into the bottom of the fourth inning of this one and rallied all the way back. The stage was set for Turner's dramatics after Austin Barnes and Chris Taylor each singled with one out in the ninth. After Corey Seager grounded out to advance the runners, Turner came to the dish and lined a two-strike offering into left field for the game-winner. Turner is hitting an absurd .362/.456/.556 with 11 homers and 41 RBI on the season.

Eric Hosmer went 5-for-6 with a grand slam, five runs, six RBI and a stolen base as his team crushed the Tigers on Wednesday.

He blasted a grand slam off reliever Warwick Saupold in the Royals' nine-run seventh-inning outburst. Hosmer singled four times in the ballgame, two of which drove in runs. He scored every time he reached base. The monster evening boosted his triple slash to .319/.375/.501 with 16 home runs and 54 RBI on the season.
Jul 27 - 1:07 AM

Anthony Rizzo went 3-for-4 with a double and four RBI on Wednesday, leading the Cubs to an 8-3 victory over their cross-town rivals.

Rizzo's bases-clearing three-run double off of James Shields in the fifth inning increased the Cubs' lead to 4-0 and proved to be the difference in the ballgame. He chipped in an RBI single in the eighth inning for good measure. Rizzo is now hitting .258/.385/.508 with 23 homers and 66 RBI on the season.
