Zack Greinke (elbow) thinks he won't have to miss a turn at the start of the regular season.

Greinke threw 43 pitches over four scoreless innings in a minor league game Wednesday, reporting afterwards that his arm "felt really good... It felt strong." The right-hander is scheduled to pitch twice more during the exhibition season, on March 25 and 30, and he believes that will be enough to build up arm strength and have ideal sharpness. It would potentially line him up for his Dodgers' regular season debut on April 5. It's not the second game of the season that he had originally been slated for, but, all things considered, the Dodgers would certainly take it.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Rockies are planning to trade outfielder Carlos Gonzalez.

And the timing couldn't be better, as Gonzalez went deep twice on Monday against the Cubs and now has 10 home runs this month. The 29-year-old is batting .278/.332/.520 with 20 home runs and 51 RBI overall this season. His injury history and contract could cause some teams to shy away, but he has the potential to be an impact bat for a contender. He's making $16 million this season and is owed $37 million from 2016-2017.

Ryan Zimmerman (foot) will be activated from the disabled list for Tuesday's game against the Marlins.

The Nationals got Anthony Rendon back over the weekend and they are now prepared to add Jayson Werth and Zimmerman back into the mix. Sidelined since early June with plantar fasciitis, Zimmerman went just 1-for-15 during his minor league rehab assignment, but the important thing is that the rest has done him good.

Jayson Werth (wrist) is set to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

The Nationals will also get Ryan Zimmerman (foot) back on Tuesday. Werth, out since mid-May with two small fractures in his left wrist, batted .367 (11-for-30) with two doubles over nine minor league rehab games between High-A Potomac and Triple-A Syracuse.

Dee Gordon (thumb) went 1-for-4 with a single and played seven innings in the field in a minor league rehab game Monday with High-A Jupiter.

Gordon reported "no pain" with his dislocated left thumb and declared himself ready to be activated on Tuesday. "I'm not the training staff -- I'm going to go with whatever the organization wants me to do," said Gordon. "But I feel good and it was good to get back out there today."

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Giants are making a "strong push" to acquire Cole Hamels from the Phillies.

Rosenthal notes that the Giants have $50 million coming off the payroll at the end of the season, so adding Hamels wouldn't break the bank. The Giants' biggest competition might be the division rival Dodgers, though the Rangers, Yankees, Cubs, Diamondbacks, and Astros have also been mentioned as possibilities.

Diamondbacks prospect shortstop Dansby Swanson suffered a "mild concussion" and received 14 stitches on the right side of his mouth after he was hit in the face by a pitch during a simulated game on Thursday.

The incident occurred just one week after the 2015 No. 1 overall pick agreed to a $6.5 million contract with the Diamondbacks. Team farm director Mike Bell said that Swanson is recovering well and showing no current "concussive symptoms." His professional debut will be pushed back a bit, but he's still expected to play in games this season. "Everything is fine, really, all things considered," said Bell. "Whenever anybody gets hit like that it’s scary. But he’s doing good."

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mets are not interested in reacquiring Jose Reyes.

Reyes is set to be traded to the Rockies (along with Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro, and Jesus Tinoco), but many expect that he will eventually be flipped elsewhere. The 32-year-old is owed $22 million per season through 2017, with a $22 million option or a $4 million buyout for 2018, which would likely be too expensive for the Mets unless the Rockies were to absorb a big chunk of his remaining salary. Reyes has also shown a decline in skills, both at the plate and in the field. He's batting .285 with four home runs and a .708 OPS over 69 games this season.

Paul Goldschmidt drew three walks and went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Monday's 10-inning win over the Mariners.

Goldschmidt put the Diamondbacks up 1-0 in the first inning when he drilled a solo home run to left field off of Mike Montgomery. The Mariners didn't seem to have any interest in pitching to him after that, and with good reason: the first baseman is batting an absurd .346/.465/.611 with 22 home runs, 75 RBI, and 17 stolen bases. Goldschmidt also leads the majors in walks by a large margin with 82, 10 more than the next-highest total (Bryce Harper, 72).
Jul 28 - 1:40 AM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers have discussed parting with Alex Guerrero in trade talks.

Guerrero has a clause in his contract that says he can become a free agent at the end of the season if he's traded, but the Los Angeles Times reported recently that he would consider waiving that right if it meant more money. Rosenthal says that the Dodgers, not surprisingly, are looking for pitching in return.
Jul 28 - 1:27 AM

Brandon Crawford homered and walked in a 1-for-2 effort on Monday as the Giants defeated the Brewers.

Crawford delivered a two-run home run off of Kyle Lohse in the third inning, pushing the Giants' lead to 3-0. He's on a six-game hitting streak, currently standing with a .270/.336/.481 batting line along with 15 home runs and 61 RBI.
Jul 28 - 12:56 AM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Troy Tulowitzki and LaTroy Hawkins have been traded to the Blue Jays for Jose Reyes and minor leaguers.

Well, how about that for a late-night surprise? Offense certainly wasn't a need for Toronto given that they are leading baseball in runs by a wide margin, but they obviously saw an opportunity to make a strength even stronger. They're also improving their defense with the deal, as Reyes' defense has really gone south. Tulo is under contract through 2020 with a club option for 2021. Reyes might be flipped elsewhere, as dealing Tulo but then taking on Reyes' contract wouldn't mesh with the Rockies' rebuild. Colorado is reportedly set to receive Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro and one other minor leaguer in the deal.
