Yankees manager Joe Girardi indicated Friday that they haven't ruled out Derek Jeter (ankle) returning before the All-Star break.

Jeter is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment on Saturday. If he performs well in his first few games there, and his surgically-repaired ankle holds up, it's not unthinkable to believe he'll be back in the Bombers' lineup by the end of next week.

Zack Cozart (quad) is out of the Reds' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Yankees.

Cozart aggravated his lingering left quad injury while running the bases on Tuesday night and could be looking at another extended absence. Jose Peraza will start at shortstop and bat ninth for the Reds on Wednesday afternoon at Yankee Stadium.

Aaron Judge is absent from the Yankees' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon.

It's a routine breather for the young slugger. Clint Frazier will start in right field and bat second Wednesday versus Reds right-hander Homer Bailey.

Chris Davis (illness) is back in the Orioles' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Rays.

Davis missed two games with a nasty stomach bug. The veteran slugger will start at first base and bat cleanup Wednesday versus Rays right-hander Alex Cobb.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Royals are in talks with the Blue Jays about a trade for Francisco Liriano.

Liriano owns an ugly 5.99 ERA, 1.67 WHIP, and 70/42 K/BB ratio through 76 2/3 innings (17 starts) this season with Toronto, but the Royals don't have the kind of high-level prospects necessary to pursue big-ticket arms -- especially after acquiring Trevor Cahill, Brandon Maurer, and Ryan Buchter on Monday from the Padres. Liriano, 33, is owed around $4.5 million in the final year of a three-year, $39 million deal.

Rafael Devers was hitless over four at-bats in Seattle on Tuesday in his major league debut.

Devers also grounded into a double play, and that's the bad news. The good news is he drew a pair of walks, showing good patience at the plate while seeing 23 pitches across his six plate appearances. It was a tough assignment facing veteran Felix Hernandez in his first major league game. Perhaps he'll fare better against Andrew Moore on Wednesday, a pitcher with a 5.70 ERA.

Madison Bumgarner allowed one earned run, six hits and a walk with four strikeouts across five innings to nail down his first win of the season Tuesday against Pittsburgh.

Bumgarner has had a strange and bumpy road this season. Normally his first victory comes in the first or second start of a new campaign, but he dropped his first four decisions and also missed two months due to a shoulder injury. He is starting to pitch like his normal ace-like self, posting a 1-1 record and 3.92 ERA over three outings since returning from the 10-day disabled list. He is likely to continue trending in a positive direction as he builds up his stamina.

Red Sox acquired INF/OF Eduardo Nunez from the Giants for RHP Shaun Anderson and RHP Gregory Santos.

Nunez had a double, two RBI, and two runs scored for the Giants on Tuesday night against the Pirates before getting lifted in the bottom of the fifth inning. Shortly thereafter, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal broke word of the trade to Boston. Nunez has been hitting well lately and can play a variety of positions for the Red Sox, but look for top prospect Rafael Devers to continue getting most of the starts at third base. Nunez, a 30-year-old impending free agent, will work in more of a utility role.

Yoenis Cespedes made an early exit from Tuesday night's win over the Padres due to quad tightness.

Cespedes came out of the game after rounding the bases on a Little League home run (triple, error) in the top of the seventh inning. He hit a real home run in the top of the first inning and an RBI double in the top of the fifth, finishing 3-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored. Cespedes may get the day off Wednesday.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Brewers are recalling top outfield prospect Lewis Brinson.

Brinson struggled in his first stay at the major league level earlier this season, slashing .097/.200/.161 with 13 strikeouts in 14 games, but the talented 23-year-old has been tearing it up at Triple-A Colorado Springs and should see regular starts down the stretch with the in-contention Brewers. We'd expect much better results this time around.

Edwin Encarnacion blasted a walkoff grand slam on Tuesday, propelling the Indians to an 11-7 victory over the visiting Angels.

Encarnacion victimized Angels' closer Bud Norris in the 11th inning. The stage was set after Bradley Zimmer and Francisco Lindor drew walks, then Michael Brantley was walked intentionally to load the bases. Encarnacion also doubled in the ballgame and walked twice, finishing the night 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored. He's now hitting .262/.377/.491 with 21 homers and 59 RBI.
Jul 26 - 12:07 AM

Paul DeJong belted a two-run homer and added a single in Tuesday's win over the Rockies.

DeJong took Jon Gray deep in the bottom of the first inning to get the scoring going and also singled off Gray in the fifth. With Dexter Fowler (forearm) on the disabled list, it looks like DeJong is going to stick in the third spot in the Cardinals' lineup for now. He has 13 homers with the big club over just 183 plate appearances, and 12 of them have come over his last 35 games.
