Reed Johnson (Achilles) has yet to be cleared to resume running.

"I still can’t run," Johnson said. "So I’ve just been walking on the treadmill. I haven’t even really jogged yet so I don’t even really know what the timetable would be from there." Johnson has been taking batting practice and throwing for the past 5-6 days and is having custom orthotics made in hopes of speeding along the recovery process.

Adam Jones went yard for the 21st time this season and finished 2-for-4 overall on Wednesday as the Orioles edged out the Angels for a win.

Jones belted a two-run home run off of Garrett Richards in the first inning to stake the Orioles to a 2-0 lead. The outfielder went yard last night as well, giving him five long balls in 12 games since returning from the All-Star break. On the season, Jones owns a .294/.321/.498 slash line with 67 RBI and six stolen bases.

Michael Wacha (shoulder) could begin a throwing program next week.

Wacha will undergo an MRI on the shoulder on Monday, and if the results are positive he could begin to throw shortly after. Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak likened Wacha's situation to a pitcher starting spring training, so he's likely still roughly a month away from a return. The Cardinals are hoping the 23-year-old can contribute down the stretch in September.

Alex Rios left Wednesday's game after being hit by a pitch in the left quadriceps muscle.

Rios was hit in the third inning, and he was replaced by Dan Robertson in right field to start the fifth inning. Rios was hitless in one at-bat before exiting. The outfielder's name has been prevalent in trade rumors in recent days, so it may have been his last game as a member of the Rangers.

Corey Kluber notched his first career shutout, limiting the Mariners to just three singles over nine innings in a win on Wednesday.

Kluber appeared to have the unfortunate draw of going up against King Felix, but it was the other way around. In his previous start, the talented Indians right-hander allowed only one run to the Royals and followed it up with Wednesday's gem, in which he did not allow a walk and struck out eight. Kluber, now 11-6 with a 2.61 ERA and a 170/33 K/BB ratio, will go for a third consecutive complete game on Monday at home against the Reds.

Brett Lawrie (finger) took batting practice on the field at the Blue Jays' complex in Dunedin, Florida, on Wednesday.

Lawrie also took ground balls during his work on the field, and Jays manager John Gibbons said Lawrie may be ready to begin a rehab assignment by this weekend. It's a nice development for the infielder, who was believed to still be a few weeks away from returning. He could rejoin the club in early August after a short rehab assignment if things continue to progress.

James Paxton (lat) threw a 45-pitch bullpen session Wednesday and is on track to rejoin the Mariners rotation on Saturday.

"I was throwing all my pitches where I wanted to throw them today, my mechanics felt smooth, everything was coming out at the right time. It felt good," Paxton said after the session. The left-hander hasn't pitched since April 8 due to a strained lat. He may have some rust early, but Paxton was pitching well early and could be a valuable contributor for the M's down the stretch.

A source tells Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star that the Royals aren't close to a deal for Emilio Bonifacio.

Bonifacio was on hug watch after his name was absent from a delayed Cubs starting lineup, and the Royals were reported as his expected destination. It still could happen, but right now there doesn't seem to be a ton of fire there. Bonifacio and his .279/.318/.373 line remain likely to be moved before Thursday's non-waiver trade deadline.

Pablo Sandoval went 2-for-3 with an RBI and two runs scored as the Giants topped the Pirates 7-5 on Wednesday.

The Giants banged out 12 hits in the game, all singles. Sandoval drove in a run, his 45th RBI of the season, with a hit in the eighth inning. The RBI and runs scored were his first in seven games, and he's without an extra-base hit in that span. The third baseman is hitting .277/.326/.425 overall.

A source tells FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal that the Royals, Pirates, Marlins "and others" are in on Ian Kennedy.

Rosenthal also notes the right-hander isn't a certainty to be dealt at the deadline. The Padres would have incentive to hold onto him, as Kennedy still has another year of arbitration before becoming a free agent. Still, he's having a great year and the Padres would likely be better dealing him for players who will be peaking closer to when they're ready to contend. Stay tuned.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports the Blue Jays are looking at Asdrubal Cabrera to fill their second base vacancy.

The Jays have a need but don't have much payroll flexibility, making Cabrera and his expiring contract a fit. FOX Sports' Jon Morosi also mentioned the Giants as having interest in Cabrera, presumably to play the keystone as well. The "perception" around baseball, per ESPN's Buster Olney, is that the Indians are prepared to move Cabrera before the deadline.

Carlos Gonzalez (ankle, knee) is out of the Rockies' starting lineup Wednesday against the Cubs.

CarGo was limping around the visitors clubhouse at Wrigley Field before Wednesday night's game. He rolled his ankle on Saturday and also has some left knee soreness.
