Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Mets backed out of the proposed trade to acquire Carlos Gomez from the Brewers due to concern over his hip issue.

Scott Boras, the agent for Gomez, has stated that his client is "injury-free" and that he has "no problem whatsoever" with his hip. The Mets will have to continue shopping elsewhere to acquire the big bat they would like to add to the outfield.

Albert Pujols went yard for the 30th time this year, but the Angels wound up losing on Wednesday to the Astros by a 6-3 score.

Pujols did his part in attempting to spur a comeback, clubbing a solo home run in the ninth inning against Luke Gregerson to make it 6-2, but the Halos ultimately fell short. He went 1-for-4 on the night. Pujols is one homer shy of Mike Trout's 31 for the major league lead. He's also knocked in 64 runs while hitting .260/.323/.539.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Phillies will acquire Matt Harrison, Alec Asher, Jerad Eickhoff, Nick Williams, Jorge Alfaro and Nick Williams in exchange for Cole Hamels and Jake Diekman.

Alfaro, Williams and Thompson are the three best prospects in the deal, and represent a nice return package for the Phillies. The Rangers get another ace to pair with Yu Darvish for the next few seasons as they strive to return to glory in the American League West.

Lance McCullers pitched well in a winning effort on Wednesday against the Angels, allowing only one run in seven innings of work.

The right-hander gave up an RBI triple to Conor Gillaspie in the second inning, but that was it. He scattered five hits while walking none and striking out five. With the win, the Astros retake sole possession of first place in the AL West over the Angels. McCullers has been quite effective in his first 13 major league starts, brandishing a 2.48 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP, and a 78/27 K/BB ratio over 76 1/3 innings. He'll take on the Rangers in a road start next.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports confirms that the Rangers have agreed to a deal to acquire Cole Hamels from the Phillies.

TR Sullivan of MLB.com had first reported that the two sides were very close on ironing out a deal. Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reported that Jorge Alfaro, Jerad Eickhoff and Nick Williams will head to the Phillies, while Jake Diekman will join the Rangers. The Phillies will also send cash to the Rangers as part of the deal. Expect everything to be finalized and officially announced on Thursday.

Bryce Harper hit two home runs and knocked in four runs in a 3-for-4 effort, helping the Nationals take down the Marlins on Wednesday.

Harper drilled a three-run home run to break a 2-2 tie in the fifth inning, then added a solo shot in the eighth for good measure. That ends a nine-game homerless streak and allows Harper to retake the National League lead in home runs with 29. He carries a superb .335/.463/.690 batting line with 68 RBI.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Phillies will acquire Jorge Alfaro, Jerad Eickhoff and Nick Williams as part of the Cole Hamels trade.

Grant also notes that both sides will be receiving other players in the deal as well, and the Rangers will be receiving cash. Expect the deal to be finalized and announced on Thursday.

Chris Tillman delivered 8 2/3 scoreless innings to beat the Braves on Wednesday.

Tillman got the first two outs of the ninth inning on ground balls, but allowed a double to Cameron Maybin before Zach Britton entered the game to get the final out. Tillman used 95 pitches, limiting the Braves to four hits while walking none and striking out two. The right-hander has held opponents to two runs or fewer in six consecutive starts, doing wonders for his ERA which now stands at 4.35 with a 1.33 WHIP and an 80/42 K/BB ratio over 113 2/3 innings. Tillman will look to keep it going in Oakland versus the Athletics next.

R.A. Dickey picked up his fifth win after limiting the Phillies to two unearned runs in eight innings on Wednesday.

Russell Martin and Danny Valencia made errors which led to both runs scoring, one in each of the seventh and eighth innings. Dickey scattered seven hits and a walk while striking out four. He's limited the opposition to two or fewer runs in four consecutive starts, lowering his ERA to 4.27 with a 1.28 WHIP and an 84/47 K/BB ratio over 137 innings. The knuckleballer squares off at home against the Twins next.

Troy Tulowitzki made his Blue Jays debut and went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a home run, three runs scored and three RBI in a win against the Phillies on Wednesday.

What a way to make a debut. He struck out in his first at-bat with his new club, but made up for it with a two-run home run in the third inning. He added an RBI double in the sixth. Tulowitzki now has 13 home runs on the year with 56 RBI along with a .305 average. The Rogers Center is friendly to right-handed hitters, so the move away from Coors Field may not hurt his numbers all that much.
Jul 29 - 9:54 PM

TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Rangers are getting close to acquiring Cole Hamels from the Phillies.

While the two sides are reportedly at the finish line of a potential deal, there has been no word as to what the Phillies would receive in return. Sullivan expects a deal to be finalized on Thursday.
