Alfonso Soriano blasted a three-run homer and a solo shot in Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays.

The longballs were Soriano's 399th and 400th of his career. In 30 games for the Yankees this season, Soriano is already tied for the team lead for right-handed batters with 11 dingers. He's now gone deep 28 times this season, giving him a good shot at a second straight 30-homer campaign.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Diamondbacks "have let teams know Shelby Miller is available in a trade."

Passan, rather obviously, notes that the price to acquire Miller "isn't nearly what it cost them eight months ago." The right-hander's stock has dropped so much after a 7.14 ERA in 14 starts and a demotion to the minors that you've got to wonder if the D'Backs aren't better off riding it out. Perhaps they think they can capitalize somewhat on a depressed starting pitching market. Robert Murray of FanRag Sports reports that the Dodgers and Marlins are among the teams that have inquired on Miller.

Bruce Levine of WSCR-AM and 670thescore.com reports that the Indians "have the best names on the table" for Aroldis Chapman.

Previous reports have had both the Nationals and Cubs out in front in the sweepstakes for Chapman. There's also been a "mystery team" floated. In other words, welcome to the trade deadline. The Indians already have a capable closer in Cody Allen, but adding Chapman would bolster their bullpen for a possible playoff run.

Carlos Rodon (wrist) will make a rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte on Monday.

White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said whether Rodon needs an additional rehab start will depend on how he feels. In other words, he should rejoin the Pale Hose rotation later this week as long as he doesn't have a setback. Rodon has missed two and a half weeks with a sprained left wrist.

Logan Morrison (wrist) remained out of the Rays' lineup Sunday.

Morrison hasn't played in a week due to a wrist issue. Rays manager Kevin Cash said recently that the injury was getting worse, although the club obviously hasn't placed LoMo on the disabled list yet. Steve Pearce is at first base Sunday.

Tyler Skaggs will make his season debut for the Angels on Tuesday in Kansas City.

Skaggs has completed his rehab from Tommy John surgery and also from a shoulder ailment that cropped up earlier this season. The usual caution should be applied here with anyone coming back from Tommy John surgery, but Skaggs was dominant of late for Triple-A Salt Lake, allowing just two runs while striking out 26 over his last 12 2/3 frames. He's worth a flier in deeper mixed leagues.

Orioles activated RHP Darren O'Day from the 15-day disabled list.

O'Day has been on the shelf since early June with a nagging hamstring injury. He'll return to a setup role.

The White Sox have suspended Chris Sale five games for his conduct in a clubhouse incident prior to Saturday's game.

Sale cut up some throwback uniforms with a knife after getting into a heated argument with the front office about not wanting to wear the uniforms Saturday. The left-hander is tentatively slated to rejoin the White Sox' rotation on Thursday against the Cubs. General manager Rick Hahn said that the incident won't affect the club's decision on whether to trade the lefty or not, although that could just be GM speak.
Jul 24 - 12:57 PM

Josh Reddick (back) remained out of the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

It's a second straight game that he's missed due to a sore back. Reddick is considered day-to-day. Jake Smolinski is in right field Sunday.
Jul 24 - 12:50 PM

Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) will do some running on Sunday.

Royals manager Ned Yost said Sunday that Cain is getting close to beginning a rehab assignment. He's been on the shelf for nearly a month with a strained left hamstring but doesn't appear to be too far off from a return.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Nationals "are trailing at least three other teams" in the pursuit of Aroldis Chapman.

It's a notable change, as they had been viewed as the favorite. It was Heyman who previously reported that the Yankees wanted Joe Ross but the Nats weren't willing to part with him, so perhaps that could be a deal killer between the two teams. Heyman backs up FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal's previous report about the Cubs possibly jumping into the lead for Chapman, as he says they're "pushing hard" for the reliever. The Indians and Giants are in on Chapman, as well, although Alex Pavlovic of CSNBayArea.com hears that the Giants "aren't in the final mix" for the reliever.
Jul 24 - 12:13 PM

Mookie Betts (knee) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

He's missed two straight starts after departing Friday's contest with a sore right knee. The good news is Betts is expected to be available off the bench and is hoping to be back in the lineup Monday. Brock Holt is in right field and Bryce Brentz is in left Sunday.
