Carlos Gomez (hamstring) hopes to return to the lineup on Sunday.

Gomez injured his right hamstring in Wednesday's win over the Yankees. He underwent an MRI, which apparently revealed just a minor strain. Gomez said Friday that he's feeling better and hopes to be ready to go later this weekend. Jake Marisnick is in center field Friday.

Rich Hill (blister) will not start for the Athletics on Sunday against the Indians.

Hill threw a bullpen session Friday without a covering on his blistered left middle finger. While the blister is doing better, he's still not ready to take the ball. That means he will not make another start before the trade deadline and will have gone over two weeks in between starts. It obviously is going to affect his trade market, although he still seems likely to be dealt. Sonny Gray will start on regular rest Sunday.

ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Mariners have inquired on Zack Cozart.

Ketel Marte (mono) is due back in about a week and is unlikely to be going anywhere, so Cozart seems like an odd fit. Stark says that the Mariners have looked into acquiring Jay Bruce, as well. Cozart is arbitration-eligible for a final time this winter.

Rays placed 1B Logan Morrison on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 28, with a right forearm strain.

LoMo returned from the injury a couple days ago after missing a week of action, but apparently he still wasn't feeling 100 percent. It's unclear how much time he might miss. Steve Pearce will handle first base, at least until he's traded.
Jul 29 - 3:28 PM

Yoenis Cespedes (quad) is back in the Mets' lineup Friday.

Cespedes sat out Thursday after a minor aggravation of his quad injury, although he drew an intentional walk as a pinch-hitter. He's in left field and batting third against Tyler Chatwood and the Rockies.
Jul 29 - 3:24 PM

Royals activated OF Lorenzo Cain from the 15-day disabled list.

Cain missed exactly a month of action with a strained left hamstring but is ready to roll now after playing a couple rehab games. Brett Eibner was optioned in a corresponding move.
Jul 29 - 3:20 PM

Diamondbacks activated OF David Peralta from the 15-day disabled list.

Peralta spent five and a half weeks on the DL with a lower back sprain but is ready to roll now after playing in a few rehab games. He's hit a disappointing .259/.308/.442 with four homers over 41 games this season.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Mets are among the teams that have expressed interest in Jay Bruce.

The feeling had been that the Mets likely were just shopping for a reliever, but that thinking may be shifting with them being connected to Jonathan Lucroy and now Bruce. Bruce wouldn't be a perfect fit, as they could use someone who could play center field, but the Mets appear to be thinking bat first, defense second here. ESPN's Jerry Crasnick also lists the Dodgers, Nationals and Orioles as having trade talks involving Bruce.

Justin Bour (ankle) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A New Orleans on Friday.

Bour has been out of commission nearly all month with a sprained ankle but is finally ready for game action again. He should be activated early next week if all goes well.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Nationals are willing to trade Lucas Giolito for Andrew Miller straight up.

However, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports says that the Yankees would not do a Miller-for-Giolito one-for-one deal. Giolito's three starts for the Nats have been up and down, but he's still viewed as one of the best pitching prospects in the game and the Yankees would have control of him for many years. Still, it sounds like they'd want even more for Miller, who is owed $9 million in 2017 and 2018.
Jul 29 - 1:49 PM

Marlins acquired RHPs Andrew Cashner, Colin Rea, Tayron Guerrero and cash considerations from the Padres in exchange for RHPs Jarred Cosart, Carter Capps and Luis Castillo and 1B Josh Naylor.

The previously reported deal has now become official. Cashner holds a 4.76 ERA over 16 starts this season, but he's pitched well in his last three outings and the Marlins are hopeful that he can stay hot down the stretch. He's slated for free agency this winter.
