CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees discussed Shin-Soo Choo at their recent organizational meetings.

The Yankees have lots of other needs -- including pitching, third base, shortstop, and catcher -- but the club values Choo's on-base ability. Still, it's unclear whether they'll be willing to pay the high price in order to sign him, especially as they attempt to get under the $189 million threshold for 2014. Heyman writes that the Rangers, Cubs, Astros, Mariners, Phillies, Mets and Astros could all make a play for Choo while the Reds are expected to make an effort to retain him.

Manny Machado underwent surgery Wednesday to repair a partially-torn ligament in his right knee.

Doctors said nothing unusual was found and that the procedure went according to plan. Machado is hoping to be ready for the start of spring training next year, though that's not necessarily guaranteed to happen. This is the second season in a row he's been shut down early by a major knee injury.

Athletics recalled LHP Drew Pomeranz from Triple-A Sacramento.

Pomeranz will start for the A's on Wednesday night against the Astros. He had a strong 2.91 ERA and 48/23 K/BB ratio in 55 2/3 innings before being demoted in July and makes for a good fantasy streamer in Houston.

Michael Wacha (shoulder) has been cleared to make his first rehab start Sunday at Double-A Springfield.

Wacha tossed a successful simulated game on Wednesday afternoon and is now ready to face live-game competition. The 23-year-old right-hander could be back in the Cardinals' starting rotation around the middle of September. He has been out since June 22 because of a stress reaction in his throwing shoulder.

Adam Wainwright revealed Wednesday that he's been going through a "dead arm" phase.

Wainwright lost again Wednesday versus the Pirates and finished with a 5.17 ERA in six August outings. He entered the month with a 1.92 mark. The good news is that the tall right-hander thinks he's just about over the hump, saying he's "ready for September." The Cardinals could certainly use the first-half version of their ace in the final month.
Aug 27 - 4:00 PM

Ike Davis launched his second home run in as many days in Wednesday's victory over the Cardinals.

After belting a go-ahead, pinch-hit, three-run homer Tuesday, Davis got the start Wednesday and deposited an Adam Wainwright mistake well over the right-center field wall for a two-run shot in the second inning. The two runs wound up being all Jeff Locke and the Pirates' bullpen needed. Davis figures to see regular time against righties at first base if Pedro Alvarez (foot) is out a while.

Yankees signed OF Chris Young to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Young was cut loose by the Mets earlier this month after batting just .205/.283/.346 with eight homers and 28 RBI over 254 at-bats. He's bottomed out offensively and is no longer great defensively, but at the league minimum Young is worth a shot. He figures to join the big league roster next month.
Aug 27 - 3:40 PM

David Wright (neck) remained out of the Mets' lineup Wednesday.

Wright is nursing some neck spasms and has also admitted that his left shoulder is still an issue. He's remains day-to-day for now. Eric Campbell is handling third base again Wednesday.
Aug 27 - 3:13 PM

David Ortiz is back in the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.

Ortiz missed the previous two contests after fouling a ball off his right foot on Sunday, but he's obviously feeling better. Big Papi is hitting .265/.362/.524 with 30 homers and 93 RBI for the Red Sox this season.
Aug 27 - 3:07 PM

Adam LaRoche is back in the Nationals' lineup Wednesday.

LaRoche sat out Tuesday due to back soreness, but he's apparently feeling much better and is ready to give it a go. The Nationals' first baseman is sporting a .266/.372/.454 batting line with 19 homers and 69 RBI this season.
Aug 27 - 3:02 PM

Cubs recalled OF Jorge Soler from Triple-A Iowa.

Soler is in right field and batting fifth in his major league debut Wednesday in Cincinnati. The Cuban defector missed time with a hamstring injury this season but has batted .340/.432/.700 with 15 homers and 57 RBI over 62 games when healthy. The 22-year-old figures to be the everyday right fielder down the stretch with the Cubbies and is worth a shot in all fantasy leagues.
Aug 27 - 2:26 PM

Anthony Rizzo (back) is not in the Cubs' lineup Wednesday.

Rizzo exited Tuesday's game due to lower back tightness. It's not considered a big deal, but the Cubs want to be safe. Rizzo should be back in there in a day or two. Chris Valaika is playing first base Wednesday.
