CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Kendrys Morales will reject the Mariners' qualifying offer.

That offer -- a one-year contract that should be worth around $14 million -- will be officially made after the conclusion of the postseason. Morales wants a multi-year contract and will seek it out on the open market, but his free agent value is going to take a major hit once he officially rejects the qualifying sum because the 30-year-old DH will then be tied to draft pick compensation.

Yunel Escobar collected a pair of singles over four at-bats in Tuesday's road loss against the Dodgers.

Escobar provided 40 percent of the hits for the Halos, as Kenta Maeda and two relievers pitched the shutout to get back on track after a rare loss in Monday's series opener. He has four consecutive multi-hit performances, and he has at least two hits in six of his past seven outings.

Adam Duvall blasted his 17th home run of the season on Tuesday, powering the Reds to an 8-6 victory over the Brewers.

Duvall clobbered a two-run shot off of Junior Guerra, increasing the Reds' lead to 3-0 in the first inning. He also doubled in the ballgame, finishing the night 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored. He's enjoying another terrific season offensively, slashing .278/.322/.544 with 17 bombs and 52 RBI.

Trea Turner went 2-for-5 and swiped four bases as the Nationals dispatched of the Cubs 6-1 on Tuesday.

Turner was instant offense for the Nationals in this one. He led off the game with an infield single then proceeded to swipe second and third base before scampering home on an infield single by Brian Goodwin. Next time up he walked in the third inning, again swiped second and third base, then scored on an error. His average continues to climb as well, hitting .267/.307/.406 with seven homers, 32 RBI and 32 stolen bases.

Max Scherzer earned his ninth victory of the season on Tuesday, limiting the Cubs to one run on two hits over his six innings of work.

The star right-hander struck out six and didn't issue a free pass in the contest. He allowed an RBI triple to Kris Bryant in the first inning, but was lights-out afterwards, retiring 16 of the final 17 batters he faced. Scherzer sports an outstanding 2.06 ERA, 0.78 WHIP and 151/24 K/BB ratio through 113 2/3 innings on the season. He'll look for more of the same when he does battle against the Cardinals in St. Louis on Sunday.

Alex Cobb carried a no-hit bid into the seventh inning in a no-decision against the Pirates on Tuesday.

Cobb punched out four and walked one on the night. Josh Harrison broke up the no-hit bid with a single leading off the seventh inning, which was followed by a single from Andrew McCutchen. Those would be the only two hits Cobb would allow over eight shutout innings. Unfortunately, Alex Colome was unable to protect his lead in the ninth. He'll head into Sunday's start against the Orioles in Baltimore with a 3.69 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 71/28 K/BB ratio.

Kevin Gausman was terrific in Tuesday's victory over the Blue Jays, scattering four hits and two walks over 5 1/3 scoreless innings.

The right-hander punched out four on the night. While he has been nothing but a disaster for most of the season, he seems to own the Blue Jays and continues to pitch well against them each time out. He'll look to further improve upon a horrifying 6.07 ERA and 1.84 WHIP when he does battle against the Rays on Sunday.

Yasmany Tomas (groin) will begin a rehab assignment with the Diamondbacks' Arizona League team on Tuesday.

Tomas' recovery from a right groin injury has come along a little more slowly than expected, but he's ready to test things out in game action now. It's unclear how many rehab games he'll need before being activated, but a return within the next week or so would seem realistic. He's been out three and a half weeks.

Robert Gsellman has been diagnosed with a left hamstring strain.

Gsellman tweaked his hammy while running out a grounder in the fourth inning in Miami. It seems likely that he'll need a disabled list stint, but the Mets should have more on his status after the game. Gsellman allowed three runs on five hits over five innings before being pulled.

Mariners pitching coach Mel Stottlemyre confirmed Tuesday that Drew Smyly (elbow) has experienced a setback.

Smyly had been set to throw a second simulated game Wednesday, but that was scratched and now we know why. There's currently no timetable for when he'll return to the mound, so it sounds like it could be a significant setback. Smyly has been out all season with a strained flexor bundle in his pitching elbow.

Jon Gray (foot) will rejoin the Rockies' rotation on Friday in Arizona.

We knew it was going to be at some point this weekend and now we have an official date. Gray has been on the shelf since mid-April with a stress fracture in his left foot but got through a rehab assignment with no issues.
Jun 27 - 8:35 PM

Tyler Anderson will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee.

Anderson has made two trips to the disabled list this month with a knee issue and the decision has been made to have it operated on. He's expected to be sidelined for around four weeks, so the left-hander could still be a big part of the Rockies' rotation in the second half.
