Michael Saunders (shoulder) took batting practice Friday.

Good news. Saunders was placed on the disabled list last Thursday with a sprained right shoulder, but he's hopeful of returning as soon as he's eligible late next week.

Mookie Betts is out of the Red Sox starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Mariners.

It's a rare day off for the 24-year-old outfielder, who went 0-for-6 with two strikeouts in Tuesday night's extra-innings loss at Safeco Field. Brock Holt is in right and batting leadoff Wednesday versus M's right-hander Andrew Moore.

Robinson Cano is getting the day off Wednesday.

Danny Espinosa will start at second base and bat ninth for the Mariners against Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale. It appears to be routine rest for Cano.

David Peralta (knee) is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Braves.

Peralta fouled a ball off his left knee in the sixth inning Tuesday, though it doesn't seem to be anything too serious. Gregor Blanco will play left field and bat leadoff in the 3:40 p.m. ET start versus Braves right-hander Aaron Blair.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Cubs are "among several clubs" to inquire on Mets right-hander Seth Lugo.

It would probably take a big-time prospect or two to pluck Lugo away from New York, as the 27-year-old boasts a 3.32 ERA over his first 116 2/3 major league innings and is under contractual control through 2022. But perhaps the 47-51 Mets will look to sell high on a guy who's had recent elbow problems. Crasnick says the Cubs "love his spin rate and think he has breakout potential."

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Cubs, Red Sox, Rockies, Indians, Pirates, Orioles, White Sox, Tigers, Athletics, and Blue Jays are the 10 teams on Yu Darvish's no-trade list.

Meaning, of course, that he can veto a deal to any of those 10 clubs. The big notable here is the presence of the Cubs, as they have expressed serious interest, but Darvish might not be against a move to the defending World Series champs and the DH-less National League. The 30-year-old impending free agent holds a 3.44 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 143/43 K/BB ratio in 133 1/3 innings (21 starts) this season with Texas.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Aaron Judge will be back in the lineup on Thursday.

Judge is "a little banged up," per Girardi, and he will not start in Wednesday afternoon's series finale against the Reds. But this is nothing serious. Clint Frazier will handle right field and bat ninth versus Cincinnati starter Homer Bailey.
Jul 26 - 11:18 AM

Zack Cozart (quad) is out of the Reds' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Yankees.

Cozart aggravated his lingering left quad injury while running the bases on Tuesday night and could be looking at another extended absence. Jose Peraza will start at shortstop and bat ninth for the Reds on Wednesday afternoon at Yankee Stadium.
Jul 26 - 10:36 AM

Chris Davis (illness) is back in the Orioles' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Rays.

Davis missed two games with a nasty stomach bug. The veteran slugger will start at first base and bat cleanup Wednesday versus Rays right-hander Alex Cobb.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Royals are in talks with the Blue Jays about a trade for Francisco Liriano.

Liriano owns an ugly 5.99 ERA, 1.67 WHIP, and 70/42 K/BB ratio through 76 2/3 innings (17 starts) this season with Toronto, but the Royals don't have the kind of high-level prospects necessary to pursue big-ticket arms -- especially after acquiring Trevor Cahill, Brandon Maurer, and Ryan Buchter on Monday from the Padres. Liriano, 33, is owed around $4.5 million in the final year of a three-year, $39 million deal.

Rafael Devers was hitless over four at-bats in Seattle on Tuesday in his major league debut.

Devers also grounded into a double play, and that's the bad news. The good news is he drew a pair of walks, showing good patience at the plate while seeing 23 pitches across his six plate appearances. It was a tough assignment facing veteran Felix Hernandez in his first major league game. Perhaps he'll fare better against Andrew Moore on Wednesday, a pitcher with a 5.70 ERA.
Jul 26 - 5:06 AM

Madison Bumgarner allowed one earned run, six hits and a walk with four strikeouts across five innings to nail down his first win of the season Tuesday against Pittsburgh.

Bumgarner has had a strange and bumpy road this season. Normally his first victory comes in the first or second start of a new campaign, but he dropped his first four decisions and also missed two months due to a shoulder injury. He is starting to pitch like his normal ace-like self, posting a 1-1 record and 3.92 ERA over three outings since returning from the 10-day disabled list. He is likely to continue trending in a positive direction as he builds up his stamina.
