FOX Sports' Jon Paul Morosi reports that the Diamondbacks and Brewers "are in the midst of ongoing discussions" about Yovani Gallardo, John Axford, Jim Henderson and Francisco Rodriguez.

Morosi says that no deal appears "close or imminent" at the moment. The D'Backs have a need both in their rotation and in the bullpen and appear to want to package Gallardo and one of the Brewers' relievers. Despite Gallardo's struggles this season, it would likely require a pretty nice package, but the D'Backs can afford it with their deep farm system.

Mariners placed RHP Hisashi Iwakuma on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 21, with a strained lat muscle.

Iwakuma was scheduled to start on Sunday, though it's unclear at the moment who will fill in for him. He posted a troublesome 6.61 ERA and 1.40 WHIP awhile allowing five home runs over 16 1/3 innings in his first three starts. The M's hope to have him back in the rotation in late-May.

TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Rangers are close to acquiring Josh Hamilton from the Angels.

A return to the Rangers is one destination that seems to make sense, though Sullivan notes that there remains a lot of work to be done before a trade is officially announced, which may not happen until Monday. Reports from SI.com and Ken Rosenthal first noted that the Angels and Hamilton were close to parting ways. The Halos will surely have to pick up a large portion of the $83 million remaining on Hamilton's contract.

Ben Zobrist (knee) is back in the Athletics' lineup Friday.

It's his first start since he hurt his left knee during Sunday's game. Zobrist is being used in the designated hitter spot Friday but should be ready to play the field soon.
Apr 24 - 5:14 PM

Michael Saunders (knee) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

The Blue Jays had been considering bringing him back Friday, but with the Rays sending a lefty (Drew Smyly) to the mound, it made sense to wait another day. Saunders got a late start to the season after having minor knee surgery, but he's an interesting fantasy option in deeper leagues with Rogers Centre as his new home.

Jose Bautista (shoulder) is likely to return to the lineup at some point over the weekend.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said that Bautista's sore right shoulder is improving rapidly to the point that he's ruled out the possibility of a disabled list stint. The club will ease the outfielder back into things in the designated hitter spot initially before eventually returning him to the field.
Apr 24 - 4:54 PM

Omar Infante (groin) is back in the Royals' lineup Friday.

Infante hadn't played since straining his left groin on Sunday. The veteran infielder is sporting an ugly .250/.244/.350 batting line in the early going this season.
Apr 24 - 4:44 PM

Bobby Parnell (elbow) will be shut down for the next week due to forearm soreness.

The Mets don't appear to be overly concerned at this point, but Parnell's velocity has been down and he's been knocked around in his three rehab outings, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks over 2 2/3 innings. Obviously, he's not going to rejoin the big club's bullpen anytime soon.
Apr 24 - 4:09 PM

Dexter Fowler (groin) is back in the Cubs' lineup Friday.

Fowler missed just one game after exiting Wednesday's contest with right groin tightness. His return allows Kris Bryant to go back to third base. David Ross is again behind the plate for Jon Lester's start, meaning Miguel Montero is on the bench.
Apr 24 - 3:14 PM

Marlins placed OF Christian Yelich on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 20, with a lower back strain.

Yelich has been battling back issues for over a week and the Marlins finally decided it was best to make a DL move with him. It's not clear at this point how long he might be on the shelf. Ichiro Suzuki figures to see the bulk of the starts in left field while Yelich is out.
Apr 24 - 2:55 PM

Rays activated 1B James Loney from the 15-day disabled list.

Loney needed just one rehab game to show that he was over his right oblique strain. The first baseman wound up missing just over a week of action. Allan Dykstra, who had been filling in at first in Loney's absence, has been sent down in a corresponding move.
Apr 24 - 8:05 AM

Rays activated LHP Drew Smyly from the 15-day disabled list.

The left-hander will make his season debut on Friday against the Blue Jays after missing the first few weeks of the season with tendinitis in his pitching shoulder. Smyly went just 3 2/3 innings in his last rehab start, so he'll be on a pretty limited pitch count Friday.
