Casey Kotchman (hamstring) will be placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday.

Kotchman suffered a left hamstring strain in Wednesday night's game against the Nationals. Greg Dobbs is filling in for him at first base on Thursday and could keep that starting gig for the next two or three weeks.

Zack Wheeler (elbow) will begin facing live hitters next week, per Mets manager Terry Collins.

That's the final step before a minor league rehab assignment. Wheeler has run into multiple setbacks in his recovery from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery, but he could become an option for New York in late August if everything runs smoothly from here.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that several teams have called the Royals inquiring on the availability of closer Wade Davis.

The Royals, who are considering selling at the trade deadline, are reportedly demanding a King's ransom for Davis. Heyman notes that the current asking price for Davis is higher than the Yankees are demanding for Aroldis Chapman. Davis is still under contract for a very affordable $10 million club option for next season, while Chapman hits free agency after the 2016 campaign, so there's certainly merit to asking for a higher price. Davis value shouldn't change much if he is dealt, as he's likely to close wherever he ends up. The Nationals are one club that Heyman notes have expressed interest in Davis.

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Rays have demanded Jurickson Profar be included if they are to deal one of their available starting pitchers to the Rangers.

Chris Archer, Jake Odorizzi and Matt Moore are all said to be available for the right price, and it appears that price must include Profar if the Rangers are going to land a major upgrade to their starting rotation. The Rangers have said no thus far, but as things get closer to the trade deadline we'll see if their position changes.

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Marlins are among the teams that have been discussing Andrew Cashner with the Padres.

The Orioles are also known to be negotiating with the Padres. The Marlins could become a legitimate title contender in the National League with the addition of a second starter behind Jose Fernandez, and Cashner could fit the bill potentially.

Jeff Samardzija has had his scheduled start against the Yankees pushed back to Sunday.

That means it'll be Johnny Cueto, not Samardzija, taking on Ivan Nova and the Yankees on Saturday. Make sure to adjust your lineups accordingly if you had planned on attacking Samardzija in daily leagues.

Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports that the Orioles and Blue Jays are the leaders in the pursuit of Melvin Upton.

The interest in Upton has certainly intensified in the past day or so, and it's looking increasingly likely that he'll be wearing a new uniform in August. While a park shift away from Petco Park could seem like a boon to his fantasy value, he hasn't handled changes of scenery well in the past, and isn't likely to land with a manager as willing to run as Andy Green has been this season.

Miguel Cabrera went 4-for-4 and drove home a pair of runs on Friday, leading the Tigers to a 7-5 victory over the White Sox in Chicago.

Cabrera delivered a two-out, two-run single in the seventh inning that broke a 5-5 tie and stood as the difference in the ballgame. The first run that scored on that play gave the veteran slugger 1500 RBI for his big league career, a milestone that has only been achieved by 55 other players in MLB history. Even though he has slumped as of late, Cabrera is still hitting .300/.376/.515 with 19 homers and 56 RBI on the year.

Lance McCullers struck out 10 batters over eight-plus innings of one-run ball in a 2-1 win over the Angels on Friday.

It was his longest outing of the season. McCullers gave up four hits and walked four while striking out Mike Trout three times. The young right-hander struck out the side in the eighth inning, so he entered the ninth inning with a chance to go the distance, but he was pulled after walking the first two batters he faced. Still, it was a fantastic outing. His 10 strikeouts tied a season-high. McCullers has a 3.33 ERA with 90 strikeouts in 70 1/3 innings through 12 starts this season, but walks (42) have been a big issue for him. He has now walked four batters in three straight starts.

Kyle Gibson delivered an outstanding performance in Friday's victory over the Red Sox, allowing just two hits over eight innings of one-run ball.

Gibson walked one and punched out six on the evening. He gave up a leadoff home run to Mookie Betts to begin the ballgame, then shut down the vaunted Red Sox offense for eight innings. He'll look to further improve upon a 4.67 ERA and 1.39 WHIP when he squares off against Orioles at home on Thursday.

Dexter Fowler celebrated his return from the disabled list by going 3-for-4 with a home run, a walk, three RBI, and two runs scored in Friday’s win over the Brewers.

Fresh off missing a month and change with a hamstring injury, Fowler didn’t need any time to shake the rust. He made an immediate impact by socking a leadoff homer against Jimmy Nelson before adding an RBI double one inning later. The 30-year-old faded a bit in June prior to the injury, but he still owns a cool .298/.405/.504 batting line on the year.
Jul 22 - 11:50 PM

Dan Straily racked up eight strikeouts over six innings of two-run ball in a victory over the Diamondbacks on Friday.

The right-hander scattered five hits and three walks on the evening. The D'Backs jumped on him with two runs in the first inning, but Straily was able to settle in beautifully afterwards, finishing his night with five shutout innings. Now 5-6 on the season, he'll look to replicate this fine effort when he does battle against the Giants in San Francisco on Wednesday.
