Padres manager Bud Black said there's a "definite possibility" that Cory Luebke (elbow) won't pitch in 2013.

Luebke is currently working his way back from Tommy John surgery and has been shut down since last month with renewed soreness in his elbow. He will try to resume a throwing program in 2-3 weeks. While the Padres aren't counting on anything from Luebke right now, they haven't completely ruled out a mid-August return.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Padres have checked in on the trade market for Manny Machado.

The Padres have played better ball lately, but they look highly doubtful to earn a spot in the 2018 postseason and Machado is due to become a free agent in November, so this doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Heyman heard from a Padres source that the interest is merely "due diligence" -- possibly setting up for a more intense pursuit of the 25-year-old superstar once he hits the open market.

Thursday night's game between the Athletics and White Sox has been postponed due to rain.

The forecast looks ugly in Chicago, so they went ahead and called this one off early. It'll be made up via a doubleheader on Friday, with first pitch in the opening game scheduled for 4:10 p.m. ET. Lucas Giolito was scheduled to start for the White Sox and Chris Bassitt was on tap for the A's. They'll both pitch Friday.

Eddie Rosario was scratched from the Twins' starting lineup on Thursday due to right shoulder soreness.

It's considered a minor issue, and Rosario might be back in there for Friday night's series opener against the Rangers. Ryan LaMarre will start in center field and bat eighth Thursday versus Red Sox right-hander Rick Porcello, with Robbie Grossman in left field and hitting fifth. Max Kepler is in right.

Jean Segura is out of the Mariners' starting lineup Thursday due to an infection in his right forearm.

The infection is treatable with antibiotics, which have been prescribed, and Segura isn't expected to miss too much time -- maybe just this one game. Andrew Romine is starting at shortstop and batting ninth for the Mariners on Thursday afternoon against Yankees right-hander Luis Severino.

Masahiro Tanaka (hamstrings) is scheduled to throw off a mound Sunday.

It'll be his first mound workout since he landed on the disabled list June 9 with tightness in both of his hamstrings. Tanaka is not expected to return to the Yankees' starting rotation until sometime in early-to-mid July. He holds a 7-2 record, 4.58 ERA, 1.087 WHIP, and 73/19 K/BB ratio in 72 2/3 innings (13 starts) this season. Jonathan Loaisiga is filling his spot.

Brett Gardner (knee) remains out of the Yankees' starting lineup on Thursday against the Mariners.

Gardner has apparently made some progress in his recovery from a sore right knee, but he'll sit out for a fifth straight game with the Mariners starting left-hander James Paxton in this matinee tilt at Yankee Stadium. Giancarlo Stanton is in left field and Gary Sanchez is taking a turn at designated hitter.

Aaron Hicks is getting the day off Thursday against the Mariners.

Clint Frazier will start in center field and bat leadoff versus Mariners left-hander James Paxton. This appears to be a routine day of rest for Hicks, who's batting .300/.364/.617 through 66 plate appearances in June.

Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 and crunched two solo home runs to lead his team over the Rays 5-1 on Wednesday.

The second baseman twice went yard against starter Nathan Eovaldi in the contest. His power bat has come alive of late although he is still well behind the pace he set the last two seasons. Everything else is right where his fantasy owners were hoping for on draft day. He leads the majors with a .347 batting average with seven home runs, 39 RBI and 49 runs scored. He has stolen 11 bases in 13 attempts.

Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-4 and drilled a walk-off, two-run home run against the Mariners on Wednesday.

Didi Gregorius singled with two outs in the bottom of the ninth and Stanton followed with a massive longball way past the center field wall to win the game. Stanton has been hot with the bat lately and has his line up to .255/.329/.504 with 18 homers and 42 RBI on the season.

Shelby Miller (elbow) is likely to join the Diamondbacks' rotation on Monday against the Marlins.

Matt Koch was sent to Triple-A Reno on Wednesday, and reliever Jake Barrett was Koch's replacement. That sets things up for Miller to start for the Diamondbacks in Monday's series opener against the Marlins, and it'll be his first start since early 2017 after undergoing Tommy John surgery last April. He owns a 4.66 ERA in four rehab starts, but he's also struck out 28 hitters in 19 1/3 innings. Miller will likely be working on strict pitch and inning counts initially, but when fully healthy, he has at times shown front-line stuff. The 27-year-old is an interesting speculative buy for what remains of the 2018 campaign.
Jun 20 - 7:47 PM

Brandon Belt went 3-for-4 with an RBI in a 6-5 victory over the Marlins on Wednesday.

Belt's RBI came on a ground-rule double, and he had two more singles in the contest. The three hits push his average to .305 on the 2018 campaign, and it's his 35th RBI in 58 games with the Giants. He's looked like the same hitter he was before the emergency appendectomy, and somewhat quietly, he's been one of the best first baseman in all of baseball in 2018.
