David Wright (hamstring) could return to the Mets' lineup by the middle of next week.

Wright ran the bases on Wednesday and will do it again Thursday before ramping up his activities over the weekend. If that goes well, it sounds like he could be activated for next week's series against the Giants. Wright has been sidelined since early August with a Grade 3 strain of his right hamstring.

Brandon Phillips left Thursday's game against the Giants with left groin tightness.

Phillips has been deemed day-to-day. He will be reevaluated on Friday to determine the exact severity of the injury.

Matt Kemp left Thursday's game against the Giants due to a tight left hamstring.

Kemp was lifted after hitting a single in the fifth inning. He has dealt with hamstring problems at several other points this season. The Braves are labeling him day-to-day for the time being, but a stay on the disabled list is always in play with a finicky issue like the hamstring. Kemp will be reevaluated on Friday.

Austin Jackson went 3-for-5 with a triple, three RBI and a run scored in the Indians' 6-3 win over the Orioles on Thursday.

Jackson swatted an RBI triple and scored a run in the second inning, and he tacked on a two-run single with the bases loaded in the third. The 30-year-old has come on strong in recent days, going 8-for-19 with two doubles, a triple and a homer in his last five games. He's still a situational player but he's being used well by the Tribe, hitting .301/.382/.516 in 34 games this year.

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports the Royals have reached a deal with RHP Neftali Feliz.

Feliz was terrible with the Brewers earlier this year but perhaps he'll benefit from a change of scenery. The right-hander has a proven track record with 107 big league saves. In Kansas City, he'll fill a setup role in front of closer Kelvin Herrera.

According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the Nationals have shown interest in Pat Neshek.

Neshek, who is headed for free agency in 2018, acknowledged that it's likely he'll be traded before the July 31 deadline. Nobody is more desperate for a closer than the Nationals and Neshek would seem to be a perfect fit. It's rare for teams to trade within the division but perhaps the two sides would make an exception. The Nats have also expressed interest in White Sox closer David Robertson and Padres lefty Brad Hand.

Addison Russell went 4-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored as the Cubs pounded the Marlins 11-1 on Thursday.

The Cubs' cleanup hitter on this day certainly did his fair share of cleaning up, homering in the seventh inning and knocking two more doubles over the course of the game. It's been a difficult year for the 23-year-old, but he's now hitting .297 (14-for-47) with four homers this month. Overall, Russell still has some work to do on his .234/.304/.413 line.

Chase Headley was unavailable for Thursday's game against the Angels due to back spasms.

Manager Joe Girardi isn't sure if he'll be able to play Friday against Texas. Ronald Torreyes handled the hot corner in Headley's absence on Thursday night. It's been a rough couple of weeks for the Yankees, who have lost eight of nine while falling into a first-place tie with the Red Sox in the AL East. Losing Headley wouldn't help matters.

Corey Seager is not in the Dodgers' lineup Thursday against the Mets.

The Dodgers are going with a mostly right-handed lineup (Cody Bellinger is the one exception) against Mets lefty Steven Matz. Chris Taylor will fill in at shortstop and bat second for the Dodgers. Seager enjoyed his second career three-homer game on Tuesday night.

Jose Quintana pitched a sharp game in Thursday's 9-0 win over the Twins, firing off 6 2/3 innings of scoreless ball.

Quintana scattered five hits while striking out nine. He did not walk a batter over his strong 6 2/3 innings of work. The 28-year-old southpaw threw 119 pitches (69 strikes) in the outing. After a slow start to the season, Quintana has limited the opposition to two or fewer runs in three of his last four starts, lowering his ERA from 5.30 to 4.69 in that space. A home start against the Yankees shows next on his schedule.

Danny Duffy (oblique) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Saturday.

Duffy is scheduled to throw 40-45 pitches. He'll need a few starts to get his pitch count back up after missing the last few weeks with a strained oblique. If all goes according to plan, Kansas City's ace should be back around the All-Star break.

Mets manager Terry Collins said the team will consider moving Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) to second base when he returns from the disabled list.

Cabrera is expected to return on Friday. He's already made 11 errors this year and Collins would prefer to keep Jose Reyes at shortstop. T.J. Rivera has been filling in at second base for Neil Walker, who is out with a torn hamstring. Cabrera has started 197 games at second base in his career, though he hasn't played there since 2014.
