Torii Hunter went 2-for-5 with two RBI as the Tigers beat the Twins 7-1 on Wednesday.

The game was a lot closer than the score would imply, as Hunter's two-run double in the seventh inning gave the Tigers their first lead of the game. Hunter later scored on a passed ball, and he added a single and scored in their three-run eighth inning as well. The ageless wonder is now batting .307/.341/.466 through 112 games this year.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Mariners have landed Chris Denorfia from the Padres.

Seattle was probably hoping to land a bigger bat than what Denorfia can provide, but it's a weak trade market for such a desire. Denorfia can play all three outfield positions and will likely be moved around by the M's. He was hitting .242/.293/.319 with San Diego.

Oscar Taveras is starting in right field for the Cardinals on Thursday against the Padres.

St. Louis dealt Allen Craig to Boston on Thursday afternoon (along with right-hander) Joe Kelly for John Lackey, so the right field job now belongs to Taveras. With a clearer path to playing time, the talented 21-year-old is worth owning in all mixed fantasy leagues.

John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 reports the Diamondbacks have traded Gerardo Parra to the Brewers.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick says that outfield prospect Mitch Haniger, a supplemental first-round pick from 2012, is headed to Arizona in return. The Diamondbacks will also get left-hander Anthony Banda, a 10th-round pick from 2012. Parra hasn't hit very well this season, but he's a very good defensive outfielder.

The Reds have dangled Mat Latos in trade discussions, reports ESPN's Jayson Stark.

Cincinnati isn't buying this season, and they may decide to sell -- perhaps even their ace. Reds general manager Walt Jocketty has seen the attractive packages front-line starters Jeff Samardzija and Jon Lester have garnered and may want in on the action. Latos has a 3.31 ERA in eight starts this year after missing the first two and a half months with injury.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post is hearing from sources that the Rays are "definitely moving" David Price.

That echoes a similar report from FOX Sports' Jon Morosi. Tampa Bay has moved into better position for a playoff spot with its strong recent play, but it's probably wise from a bigger-picture perspective to maximize Price's trade value this summer. Look for big news soon. The Dodgers and Mariners are among the teams with known interest.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that Giants and Rangers are discussing an Alex Rios swap.

The Rangers are amenable to picking up a portion of what remains of the outfielder's $12.5 million salary this season, and Rios' contract includes a reasonable $13.5 million club option for 2015. Rios is slashing a respectable .304/.335/.430 and would represent a nice fit for AT&T Park with his gap power and speed.

Cardinals acquired RHP John Lackey and LHP Corey Littrell from the Red Sox for RHP Joe Kelly and OF Allen Craig.

It's another exciting blockbuster trade on an active 2014 deadline day. Lackey has posted a strong 3.60 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 116/32 K/BB ratio in 137 1/3 innings this season for Boston and should be even better with the move to the National League. He holds a bargain $500,000 club option for the 2015 season as a result of his 2012 Tommy John surgery. The Cardinals gave up two big major league pieces in Kelly and Craig, but they're both having disappointing years.

The Tigers are "making a big push" for Andrew Miller, according to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick.

Detroit, which acquired Joakim Soria from the Rangers last week, would like to upgrade its supply of left-handed relievers, which currently counts Ian Krol, Phil Coke and Blaine Hardy amongst its ranks. Miller would be a godsend. He's posted a 2.34 ERA and 69/13 K/BB ratio over 42 1/3 innings this year and is arguably the top available left-hander out there.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Dodgers are "trying hard" to land Joaquin Benoit.

Benoit is under contract with the Padres through 2015 and carries a vesting option for 2016, so the San Diego front office isn't fully set on moving him. But the Dodgers need bullpen help and have the farm system to get something done with their division foes.

According to FOX Sports' Jon Morosi, the Royals have asked about Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa.

The Royals have also been linked recently to A.J. Burnett as they try to make a minor rotation upgrade. De La Rosa has posted a weak 4.20 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 122 innings this season, but Coors Field is to blame for part of that poor production. The 33-year-old left-hander is scheduled to become a free agent this winter.
Jul 31 - 12:05 PM

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Twins have reengaged Kurt Suzuki about an extension.

The initial round of talks didn't get very far, but Rosenthal is now hearing that there's a "reasonable chance it gets done." Suzuki is having a career year offensively at age 30, batting .304/.367/.386 in 347 plate appearances. He signed a bargain one-year, $2.75 million free agent contract with Minnesota last winter.
