Blue Jays sent INF Andy LaRoche outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

LaRoche cleared waivers after being designated for assignment earlier this week. He'll continue to serve as organizational depth.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Mike Leake is one of the starters the Blue Jays are considering.

Rosenthal says that the Jays' targets are "all at similar talent levels," which suggests that they aren't in the market for an ace if they're considering Leake. Toronto is "looking for the best acquisition cost," Rosenthal adds. Leake certainly didn't hurt his trade value with eight shutout innings against the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Ryan Braun (back) is back in the Brewers' lineup Wednesday.

Braun missed the previous two contests with lower back tightness but is feeling well enough to give it a go. The former MVP is hitting .268/.338/.487 with 18 homers and 16 steals this season.

Byron Buxton (thumb) will take batting practice on the field Thursday before then beginning to play in simulated games at the Twins' spring training complex.

It's unclear how many sim games he'll need, but if they go well Buxton will then be cleared for a rehab assignment. There had been some talk that the young outfielder could be out until as long as late August, but it's looking like it will definitely be sooner than that if he can avoid a setback.

Clayton Kershaw (hip) has been scratched from Wednesday's scheduled start versus the Athletics.

It's unclear when Kershaw's hip/glute started bothering him, but it's not seen as a major issue. The Dodgers hope the left-hander will be ready to start on Saturday or Sunday against the Angels. Mike Bolsinger will take the ball Wednesday instead.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Dodgers, Yankees and Blue Jays are "poised to have an all-out bidding war" for David Price "once they get the go-ahead."

To this point, the Tigers have remained steadfast in their desire to compete for a playoff spot this season rather than be sellers. But, it's getting harder by the day for them to view themselves as real contenders, so they could reverse course soon. Price would be one of a few assets they could barter off, with Yoenis Cespedes and Joakim Soria being a couple others.

Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that the Dodgers have acquired Mat Latos and Mike Morse from the Marlins in exchange for prospects.

Wittenmyer adds that the Dodgers will also receive "at least one competitive balance pick." The Dodgers almost surely aren't done shopping for starters, but Latos should fit in nicely in their rotation, as he boasts a 2.96 ERA and 43/9 K/BB ratio over 45 2/3 innings since returning from the disabled list. Morse is merely a salary dump by the Marlins, so he would serve only in a pinch-hitting role in Los Angeles.

Giancarlo Stanton (hand) has been cleared to swing off a tee.

He's been taking dry swings for a week and is ready to take the next step. While manager Dan Jennings wouldn't offer a firm timetable on when Stanton will return, he didn't rule out the slugger being activated at some point next week. "His hand looks good," Jennings said. "It's healed. The scar looks well. Now he's going to start off the tee and into flips. He'll progress at his timetable. It's good to see him making strides the right way."

Joe Panik will miss a second straight game Wednesday due to back tightness.

Panik noted that it wasn't one play that caused the injury, but rather it's just "one of those things" you have to deal with during a long season. He's considered day-to-day. Ehire Adrianza will get another start at second base Wednesday.
Jul 29 - 8:24 AM

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi thinks there's a "better chance" that the Tigers trade David Price than the White Sox trade Jeff Samardzija.

The White Sox suddenly have a better record than the Tigers after winning six straight and might decide to make a run at a Wild Card spot. It's certainly still possible another club makes an offer for Samardzija that they can't refuse, but the righty has pitched really well of late and Chicago could just settle on receiving draft pick compensation for him if he leaves as a free agent.

David Peralta went 3-for-4 with a double, a stolen base, two RBI, and a run scored as the Diamondbacks defeated the Mariners 8-4 on Tuesday.

Peralta gave the D'Backs an early 1-0 lead with an RBI single in the first inning. He tacked on an RBI double in the third, and scored after singling in the sixth. He walked and stole second base in the seventh but was stranded. Peralta has put up great numbers this season, batting .278/.352/.495 with nine home runs and 45 RBI.

Brett Gardner and his Yankees teammates took it to the Rangers on Tuesday, with the outfielder going 3-for-4 with a homer, three RBI and five runs scored in the 21-5 rout.

Gardner walked three times to go with his three hits, reaching base in six of his seven plate appearances on the night. The 31-year-old scored runs in the second, third, fourth and sixth innings before adding a two-run homer for good measure in the ninth. Gardner is batting .297/.379/.471 with 11 homers, 46 RBI, 15 steals and 72 runs scored, second-most in the American League.
