Carlos Beltran got a qualifying offer from the Cardinals.

It was a no-brainer move for the Cards, who now stand to get a compensatory draft pick if (or when) Beltran signs with a new team. The offer is for one year, $14.1 million and Beltran can do much better on the open market.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Friday that Marcus Stroman (knee) "might come up and start for us" with as well as his rehab is progressing.

The conventional wisdom is that Stroman would likely return in a relief role since he's missed so much time. That might still wind up being the case, but him joining the rotation isn't being ruled out. Making his way back from ACL surgery, Stroman has thrown a couple simulated games and is slated to begin a rehab assignment next week.

Mark Teixeira (shin) remains sore and could be sent for more tests.

Teixeira returned to action Tuesday, but he could barely run and he's still feeling it after Thursday's off day. Obviously he's not in Friday's lineup and he could finally be placed on the disabled list. Greg Bird will fill in again at first base.

Nationals manager Matt Williams confirmed Friday that Denard Span will undergo season-ending surgery on his left hip next Tuesday.

He also revealed that it will be to repair Span's labrum, which has been bothering the outfielder for a while. The Nats think the hip issue is connected to the core and back problems Span was plagued by this season. It's a really tough break for Span, as he's slated to hit free agency in a couple months. The timetable for his recovery should be known after Tuesday's procedure.

Rougned Odor (finger) remained out of the Rangers' lineup Friday.

Odor hasn't played since cracking his right middle fingernail when he was hit by a grounder Tuesday. He did work out again prior to the game and should be back in there soon. Hanser Alberto is holding down second base again in Odor's place.

Matt Kemp (shoulder) remained out of the Padres' lineup Friday.

It's the second straight game Kemp has been out with a sore left shoulder. He remains day-to-day. Travis Jankowski is in right field again in Kemp's place.

Michael Taylor (knee) is expected to be sidelined for a few days.

The feeling is that Taylor didn't cause any major damage when he collided with the outfield wall Thursday, but he has a bad bruise on his right knee. He could wind up missing the entire weekend series against the Marlins. Matt den Dekker should handle center field for a few days.

Justin Morneau (concussion) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A New Britain on Friday.

Morneau hasn't played since mid-May due to a concussion and a cervical neck sprain, but he's been slowly but surely progressing of late and is ready to test things out in game action. He'll play in three contests for New Britain before being re-evaluated. It's not clear whether the Rockies have a target date for Morneau's return.

Mariners optioned C Mike Zunino to Triple-A Tacoma.

The demotion is probably long overdue. Zunino has simply been lost at the plate all season, sporting a hideous .174/.230/.300 batting line over 112 games. John Hicks has replaced him on the roster and will share the catching duties with Jesus Sucre for now.

Danny Salazar has been scratched from Friday's scheduled start against the Angels due to illness.

The Indians presumably will hope that he'll be ready to go at some point over the weekend. Trevor Bauer will start Friday in Salazar's place and will be on regular rest.
Aug 28 - 1:09 PM

Jon Jay (wrist) could begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Memphis on Friday.

He'll report to Memphis on Friday but might not begin playing in games just yet. Jay began taking batting practice earlier this week and hasn't had any issues with his nagging left wrist injury. He should be on track to be activated from the disabled list within the next two weeks.

The Mariners have fired general manager Jack Zduriencik.

Zduriencik has seemingly been on the hot seat for a few years now and it's not a surprise to see him get the boot in the midst of the Mariners' disappointing season. Assistant GM Jeff Kingston will handle the GM duties for the remainder of the season, although it's unclear whether he might be a candidate to get the full-time gig. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal says that the club has already reached out to former Rockies GM Dan O'Dowd.
