Roberto Hernandez went the distance Tuesday in the Rays' 5-2 victory over the Diamondbacks.

Hernandez was excellent, needing only 102 pitches to go the whole nine frames. He allowed two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out six. The right-hander is pitching to keep his rotation spot with Alex Cobb (concussion, blister) progressing quickly and will try to keep it rolling next time out against these same D'Backs.

The deadline for the Tigers to work out a trade for Astros reliever Chad Qualls passed without a deal Wednesday.

The deadline passing means Qualls won't be dealt this season. That's good news for fantasy owners, as the right-hander would likely have been a setup man for Joe Nathan in Detroit a la Joakim Soria. Qualls earned his 15th save of the season on Tuesday, and the 36-year-old has a 3.05 ERA on the year.

R.A. Dickey was placed on revocable waivers by the Blue Jays on August 25, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.

The Jays placed a bunch of players on waivers, which is pretty standard procedure for teams in August. It will soon be known whether he cleared waivers or was claimed by a team. Dickey is owed $12 million in 2015 with a $12 million club option for 2016. The knuckleballer is 10-12 with a 4.00 ERA this season.

Adrian Gonzalez is not in the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday due to back stiffness.

The back hasn't really been an issue to this point, so unless it progresses into something more it's likely not something that will give him problems going forward. Justin Turner started at first base in Gonzalez' place.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports the Blue Jays have placed Mark Buehrle on revocable waivers.

Buehrle is owed $19 million in the final year of his deal in 2015, so interest in the 35-year-old may be hard to come by. The Angels, a team in serious need of another starter after Garrett Richards' injury, could be interested. Buehrle started the year strong and is 11-8 with a 3.41 ERA through 26 starts.

MLB Network's Peter Gammons said the Dodgers' interest in Bartolo Colon "apparently is more fiction than non-fiction."

The Dodgers have continually been included in the Colon trade rumors after he passed through waivers a few days ago. It makes sense that they wouldn't have a ton of interest, though, with both Zack Greinke and Hyun-Jin Ryu trending in the right direction. The Angels appear to be the lone serious suitor for Colon at this point.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (glute) threw a two-inning simulated game without pain on Wednesday.

Getting through the simulated game was the last hurdle for Ryu before a return. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly hasn't committed to when Ryu will be activated for a start, but it appears that he'll return Sunday or Monday at the latest.

Joey Votto (quad) did some "baseball activities" Wednesday, taking ground balls.

Votto has also been playing catch and doing some running. He appears to be getting closer to a return, but the minor league seasons ending over the weekend limits his opportunities to get into rehab games. Even when he comes back he won't be 100 percent, Reds manager Bryan Price has continued to say, and it's still unclear when that return may be.

Jed Lowrie (finger) may begin a rehab assignment this weekend.

Lowrie played catch on Tuesday, and the next step is a rehab assignment. Assuming he needs a few games to get up to game speed, Lowrie should be back in Oakland in the first few days of September.

Leonys Martin went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in Wednesday's 12-4 rout of the Mariners.

Martin hit an RBI single in the Rangers' four-run second inning and then singled and scored in the fourth. He capped off his productive afternoon with a two-run homer in the top of the sixth. Martin has not enjoyed the breakout season that many were predicting, but the dynamic 26-year-old is capable of putting up some big numbers down the stretch.
Aug 27 - 6:18 PM

Rockies placed C Wilin Rosario on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 23, with left wrist inflammation.

Rosario wasn't making swift enough progress from his sore left wrist, but it's not believed to be a major injury and he should be ready to return as soon as he is eligible. Rosario owns a disappointing .687 OPS with 10 home runs and 43 RBI in 91 games this year. He had an .801 OPS, 21 homers, and 79 RBI in 121 games last year.
Aug 27 - 5:24 PM

Xander Bogaerts (concussion) has been cleared to return to the Red Sox active roster on Saturday.

Bogaerts was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list last weekend, but he's been symptom-free since Monday and officially passed MLB's protocols on Wednesday. Bogaerts will try to finish the 2014 season on a positive note. He's batted just .223/.293/.333 so far.
