Ryan Vogelsong (hand) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A San Jose on Friday.

Vogelsong was cleared after getting through a simulated game on Tuesday with no issues. The right-hander is expected to make at least a couple rehab start before hopefully rejoining the Giants' rotation on August 9. He's been on the shelf since mid-May with a fractured right hand.

Chris Tillman delivered 8 2/3 scoreless innings to beat the Braves on Wednesday.

Tillman got the first two outs of the ninth inning on ground balls, but allowed a double to Cameron Maybin before Zach Britton entered the game to get the final out. Tillman used 95 pitches, limiting the Braves to four hits while walking none and striking out two. The right-hander has held opponents to two runs or fewer in six consecutive starts, doing wonders for his ERA which now stands at 4.35 with a 1.33 WHIP and an 80/42 K/BB ratio over 113 2/3 innings. Tillman will look to keep it going in Oakland versus the Athletics next.

R.A. Dickey picked up his fifth win after limiting the Phillies to two unearned runs in eight innings on Wednesday.

Russell Martin and Danny Valencia made errors which led to both runs scoring, one in each of the seventh and eighth innings. Dickey scattered seven hits and a walk while striking out four. He's limited the opposition to two or fewer runs in four consecutive starts, lowering his ERA to 4.27 with a 1.28 WHIP and an 84/47 K/BB ratio over 137 innings. The knuckleballer squares off at home against the Twins next.

Troy Tulowitzki made his Blue Jays debut and went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a home run, three runs scored and three RBI in a win against the Phillies on Wednesday.

What a way to make a debut. He struck out in his first at-bat with his new club, but made up for it with a two-run home run in the third inning. He added an RBI double in the sixth. Tulowitzki now has 13 home runs on the year with 56 RBI along with a .305 average. The Rogers Center is friendly to right-handed hitters, so the move away from Coors Field may not hurt his numbers all that much.

TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Rangers are getting close to acquiring Cole Hamels from the Phillies.

While the two sides are reportedly at the finish line of a potential deal, there has been no word as to what the Phillies would receive in return. Sullivan expects a deal to be finalized on Thursday.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Braves would receive Hector Olivera from the Dodgers as part of the rumored three-team deal with the Marlins.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Mets have agreed to a deal with the Brewers to acquire Carlos Gomez.

As rumored, Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores will be headed back to Milwaukee in the trade. The deal is done pending physicals, so don't expect an official announcement to take place until Thursday. Gomez returns to the organization where he began his big league career as a 21-year-old in 2007.
Jul 29 - 9:12 PM

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that Alex Wood and Jim Johnson could be on their way to the Dodgers as part of a three team deal with the Marlins.

The Braves would be receiving at least Michael Morse and a compensation pick from the Marlins in the deal that would send Mat Latos to the Dodgers. This one appears to be gaining traction and a deal could be finalized before the night is through.
Jul 29 - 8:54 PM

Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports reports that the Mets are "pushing hard" to acquire Carlos Gomez from the Brewers.

The Mets are reportedly close to making a big trade for an outfielder, and Gomez would certainly be everything that they are looking for, a dynamic talent who is still relatively inexpensive and under team control through the 2016 season. Stay tuned, as the Mets appear poised to make some noise before the evening is through.

Welington Castillo blasted a pair of home runs off Felix Hernandez on Wednesday, powering the Diamondbacks to an 8-2 victory over the Mariners in Seattle.

Castillo capped off a four-run uprising in the first inning with a two-run blast, then added a solo shot in the fourth. He finished the afternoon 2-for-3 plus a walk and is now hitting .280 (31-for-111) with eight homers and 19 RBI in 35 games with the Diamondbacks.

Edwin Encarnacion has been scratched from the Blue Jays' lineup Wednesday with a jammed finger.

X-rays on the finger -- his left middle finger -- turned up negative. Encarnacion can be considered day-to-day for now. Chris Colabello is filling in at first base and batting cleanup Wednesday against the Phillies.

According to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, the reported trade sending Mat Latos and Michael Morse to the Dodgers "could be falling apart."

Latos and Morse are still in the Marlins' clubhouse and Marlins GM-turned-manager Dan Jennings told the media on Wednesday afternoon that he hadn't heard about any trade being close. Word is the Dodgers are trying to flip Morse to a third team, so that could be the holdup. There's also talk of this being a medical thing. It's going to be a crazy 48 hours as the July 31 trade deadline approaches.
