Jarred Cosart will be called up to start on Friday against the Rays.

It will be the top prospect's major league debut. Cosart's control issues have carried over into this season but he's pitched well overall, posting a 3.29 ERA and 93/50 K/BB ratio over 93 innings. With the uncertainty in the Astros' rotation, he could stick around for a while if he pitches well. He's worth adding in AL-only formats and probably deep mixed leagues.

J.D. Martinez (elbow) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Toledo.

Martinez will be eased in as the DH as he makes his way back from a non-displaced fracture of the radial neck of his right elbow. He admitted Monday that he'll have to deal with pain for the rest of the season, but he wants to make it back with the Tigers still in the mix. "My bat worries me more than my throwing," said Martinez. "Timing-wise and arm-wise. I feel it puts more stress on my elbow hitting than it does throwing."

Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Omaha.

Cain, who has been out for about a month with a left hamstring strain, got the green light after doing some running over the weekend. Barring a setback, he appears on track for a return around the end of the month.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Blue Jays have agreed to acquire outfielder Melvin Upton from the Padres.

The Padres are expected to receive a Class A prospect in return. No word yet on the financial details, but the deal is expected to be finalized on Tuesday. Upton is batting .256/.304/.439 with 16 home runs, 45 RBI, and 20 steals across 95 games this season and should add some versatility to Toronto's outfield. The addition could allow Jose Bautista to see more time out of the designated hitter spot and Edwin Encarnacion to play more first base. Upton is still under contract (for $16.45 million) next season, which is notable with Bautista, Encarnacion, and Michael Saunders due to hit free agency this winter. The Padres are expected to pick up some of the tab.

Scooter Gennett singled and ripped a solo home run in Monday's victory over the Diamondbacks.

Gennett got the scoring going with a deep blast to center field in the first inning. It was one of four dingers the Brewers had on the night, as Jonathan Villar, Martin Maldonado and Andy Wilkins also went deep. Gennett has already tied his career high with nine home runs.

Justin Verlander held the mighty Red Sox offense to one run over six innings in Monday's 4-2 victory.

The Red Sox ran up his pitch count as they do with most opposing hurlers, as Verlander needed 110 pitches to get through his six frames. The right-hander held the Red Sox in check, though, as he gave up just five hits and two walks while striking out five. Verlander has yielded just six runs over his last five starts since his blowout outing against the Indians. He'll face the Astros his next time out.

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said after Monday's game that Jake Lamb is dealing with a bruised left hand.

Lamb isn't expected to undergo an MRI, but Hale said that they'll try to give him some rest and treatment. Consider him day-to-day. Lamb went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Monday and is now hitless over his last five games.

Aaron Sanchez struck out seven batters across seven shutout innings in Monday's 4-2 victory over the Padres.

Sanchez was dominant yet again, holding the Padres to just three hits -- two singles -- while walking two. He's yielded only 113 hits and 39 walks over 132 1/3 innings this season, good for a 1.15 WHIP to go along with his 2.72 ERA. Sanchez is now 11-1 on the season and hasn't given up more than two runs in any of his last seven starts. It's possible he'll hit a wall at some point or even be moved to the bullpen, but Sanchez hasn't shown any signs of slowing down yet. He'll get the Orioles next.

Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports that moving Ivan Nova has become "the next priority" for the Yankees following the Aroldis Chapman deal.

ESPN's Buster Olney reported earlier in the day Monday that team executives have been pushing for a trade involving Nova, so things could come together quickly now that the Chapman deal is finalized. "They're focused on him," a major-league source told Feinsand. "They're looking at the guys with expiring contracts first - though not Beltran right now." Nova, an impending free agent, has posted a 4.65 ERA and 72/22 K/BB ratio over 93 innings this season. In a weak market for starters, he could draw some interest as rotation depth.

Joe Panik (concussion) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Sacramento.

Panik had to briefly halt his minor league rehab assignment last week, but he's back on track now and could join the Giants by the end of the week if all goes well. The 25-year-old has been out since June 27 due to concussion symptoms.
Jul 25 - 8:13 PM

Monday's game between the Cardinals and Mets was postponed due to rain.

The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Tuesday, beginning at 4:10 p.m. ET. Monday's starters, Noah Syndergaard and Carlos Martinez are expected to be pushed back to Game 1 on Tuesday. Jaime Garcia and Bartolo Colon will pitch the nightcap.
Jul 25 - 7:12 PM

Brandon Belt was moved down to sixth in the lineup for Monday's game against the Reds.

Belt has been the primary No. 3 hitter dating back to mid-June, but he's batting just .185 with zero homers and a .589 OPS this month. Jarrett Parker will get an opportunity to hit third Monday against Anthony DeSclafani.
