Neil Walker will miss a few games after he sustained a deep cut on his right index finger during Friday's game that required six stitches.

Walker sustained the injury on a slide into second base in the eighth inning on Friday. It's not clear if the Pirates will make a roster move or go short-handed over the next few days. Brandon Inge should see increased playing time during his absence.

Yovani Gallardo yielded just three hits over seven scoreless frames in Wednesday's 5-0 victory over the Rays.

Gallardo gave up just three singles, walked one and struck out five. Though he's dealt with his bouts of inconsistency, the right-hander has tossed 14 2/3 scoreless innings over his last two outings. He'll take a nifty 3.38 ERA into a home start against the Giants next week.

Eric Chavez has retired from baseball.

Chavez has battled a nagging knee issue this season and the 36-year-old has decided to hang it up rather than continue rehabbing. He won six Gold Gloves and was one of the better players in the AL during the early 2000s. Injuries wrecked a big chunk of his career, but he deserves credit for making it back to be a useful player for a few years before the injury bug ultimately did him in. "I'm very lucky," Chavez said Tuesday. "I just enjoyed competing and being on the field. There's nothing like winning at the major-league level."

Wade Miley threw 6 2/3 scoreless innings Wednesday in the Diamondbacks' 5-4 win over the Reds.

Miley surrendered seven hits and walked four, but he was able to work out of multiple threats against the struggling Cincinnati offense despite recording only one strikeout. The left-hander moved to 7-7 on the season with a 4.14 ERA and 1.28 WHIP. Arizona has told teams that Miley is not available for trade, so his next start will be Tuesday against the Royals.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that a trade sending Jon Lester to the Orioles is "not close."

Rosenthal didn't rule out something getting done, but it appears the two sides aren't as close to crossing the finish line as previously reported. MLB.com's Peter Gammons adds that the Red Sox still have "plenty" of alternatives if they're not able to work something out with the O's.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Cubs have an agreement in place to acquire Felix Doubront from the Red Sox for a player to be named later.

Doubront has fallen out of favor in Boston, but he should get his wish to start again with the Cubs. The lefty holds a career 4.82 ERA, but he's just 26 and has a career 8.1 K/9 rate, so it's probably worth a shot for Chicago to see if he can right the ship in the National League.

Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald is hearing that there's "zero chance" the Marlins trade for John Lackey.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reported earlier Wednesday that the Fish were talking to the Red Sox about a deal involving the veteran righty, but apparently those negotiations didn't get very far. Morosi's colleague, Ken Rosenthal has said there's a "very good chance" Lackey is dealt somewhere. It just apparently won't be to Miami.

Angel Pagan (back) could begin a rehab assignment on Thursday if his full workout on Wednesday goes well.

It's not clear how many rehab games he'll need, but Pagan has progressed well over the past week. He should be ready to rejoin the Giants' outfield in early August if he can avoid a setback. The veteran outfielder has been on the shelf since mid-June with a back injury.

Cardinals acquired RHP Justin Masterson from the Indians in exchange for OF James Ramsey.

Masterson has struggled in his walk season, posting a 5.51 ERA over 19 starts. However, he's dealt with a knee issue and the Cards are hopeful that he'll pick things up if that injury is behind him. He should also certainly benefit from a move to the National League. Masterson will make his Cardinals' debut on Saturday against the Brewers.
Jul 30 - 2:55 PM

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Cardinals could still go after Jon Lester even after the acquisition of Justin Masterson.

Morosi says that they would have to be willing to give up Shelby Miller to do it. It's certainly possible that the Red Sox have floated this information to Morosi in order to drive up Lester's price with other teams. On the other hand, St. Louis didn't have to surrender any of their top prospects to get Masterson, so we can't rule anything out.

MLB.com's Peter Gammons reports that the Dodgers are no longer pursuing Jon Lester, David Price and Cole Hamels.

The Dodgers are refusing to give up Joc Pederson, Corey Seager or Julio Urias in any deal, which makes acquiring one of the aforementioned aces an impossibility. Gammons said they're now focused on adding a back-end starter and bullpen help. With the Cardinals also out of the picture, it appears the Lester market might be down to the Pirates and A's.

Diamondbacks signed LHP Clayton Richard to a minor league contract.

He'll make a start for the Arizona League Diamondbacks this weekend. Richard underwent AC joint surgery last summer and thoracic outlet surgery over the offseason but is finally ready for game action again after a long rehab. He could possibly come up with the D'Backs in September if he looks good in the minors.
