Daniel Murphy went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run as the Mets beat the Reds 4-2 on Tuesday.

Murphy's home run was his 13th of the season, giving him 76 RBI and 92 runs scored. The second baseman is finishing strong, too, as he's batting .303 with 13 RBI and 13 runs scored in September. Murphy has now hit safely in 18 of 23 games this month.

Steve Gilbert of MLB.com confirms Shelby Miller (elbow) will start Monday against the Marlins.

This was the expected outcome, though Miller's presence in the Diamondbacks' clubhouse on Thursday should make it official. It will be his first big league start in 14 months after undergoing Tommy John surgery last April. The 27-year-old has been up-and-down during his minor league rehab, delivering a mediocre 4.66 ERA over four starts for High-A Visalia and Double-A Jackson. Miller logged 81 pitches in his last outing and should see close to a normal workload on Monday.

Jon Morosi of MLB.com reports that the Phillies have expressed interest in trading for Adrian Beltre.

He'd be a big upgrade defensively (and offensively) over Maikel Franco, who's been thrust back into an everyday role in Philly with J.P. Crawford out 4-6 weeks due to a broken hand. Beltre is batting .302/.357/.428 in 45 games this season for the Rangers and he still plays a great third base at age 39. The future Hall of Famer is in the final year of a two-year, $36 million deal.

Cardinals placed RHP Michael Wacha on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.

Wacha suffered the injury in the fourth inning of his start Wednesday afternoon against the Phillies. It was so painful that he had trouble breathing, which is a sign that it might be a serve strain. The 26-year-old right-hander could miss over a month. John Gant has been recalled from Triple-A Memphis in a corresponding roster move and may take the vacant spot in the Cardinals' rotation, though Daniel Poncedeleon and Dakota Hudson are also options.

Eduardo Escobar has been diagnosed with a right elbow contusion.

That's relatively good news. Escobar got hit in the right elbow by a Rick Porcello pitch in the bottom of the first inning of Thursday's matinee game at Target Field. He could return to action on Friday.

White Sox OF prospect Eloy Jimenez has been promoted from Double-A Birmingham to Triple-A Charlotte.

Jimenez tore up the Southern League to the tune of a .317/.368/.556 batting line with 10 home runs, 15 doubles, and 42 RBI in 53 games. The 21-year-old outfielder is one of the top prospects in all of baseball and could very well make his major league debut later this season -- maybe after the rebuilding White Sox sell off some parts ahead of the July 31 trade deadline.

Padres activated OF Wil Myers from the 10-day disabled list.

Myers will return to the Padres' starting lineup on Thursday night against Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner after missing nearly two months with a strained oblique. The 27-year-old also sat out for much of April with an arm issue. He batted .300 with a .900 OPS on his five-game minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso and is safe for immediate activation in fantasy leagues.

Yoenis Cespedes (hip, quad) is hoping to progress to running drills in the next few days.

That's what Mets manager Mickey Callaway relayed to reporters on Thursday afternoon. Cespedes landed on the disabled list in mid-May with a right hip injury and then experienced tightness in his right quad earlier this month after embarking on a minor league rehab assignment. He could be ready to return in early-to-mid July if he's able to avoid further setbacks.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Padres have checked in on the trade market for Manny Machado.

The Padres have played better ball lately, but they look highly doubtful to earn a spot in the 2018 postseason and Machado is due to become a free agent in November, so this doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Heyman heard from a Padres source that the interest is merely "due diligence" -- possibly setting up for a more intense pursuit of the 25-year-old superstar once he hits the open market.

Thursday night's game between the Athletics and White Sox has been postponed due to rain.

The forecast looks ugly in Chicago, so they went ahead and called this one off early. It'll be made up via a doubleheader on Friday, with first pitch in the opening game scheduled for 4:10 p.m. ET. Lucas Giolito was scheduled to start for the White Sox and Chris Bassitt was on tap for the A's. They'll both pitch Friday.

Eddie Rosario was scratched from the Twins' starting lineup on Thursday due to right shoulder soreness.

It's considered a minor issue, and Rosario might be back in there for Friday night's series opener against the Rangers. Ryan LaMarre will start in center field and bat eighth Thursday versus Red Sox right-hander Rick Porcello, with Robbie Grossman in left field and hitting fifth. Max Kepler is in right.
Jun 21 - 11:43 AM

Jean Segura is out of the Mariners' starting lineup Thursday due to an infection in his right forearm.

The infection is treatable with antibiotics, which have been prescribed, and Segura isn't expected to miss too much time -- maybe just this one game. Andrew Romine is starting at shortstop and batting ninth for the Mariners on Thursday afternoon against Yankees right-hander Luis Severino.
