Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Nationals are willing to listen to trade offers for outfielder Denard Span.

The 29-year-old outfielder, who is set to earn $6.5 million in 2014 with the team holding a $9 million option for 2015, is coming off a season where he slashed .279/.327/.380 with four homers, 47 RBI and 20 swipes while playing Gold Glove caliber defense. The potential reasoning behind their listening to offers, is that the Nats are reportedly interested in free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, which would make Span expendable.

Kole Calhoun hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the Angels' 3-2 win over the Nationals on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old outfielder is now slashing .241/.320/.374 with 14 home runs and 49 RBI in 115 games this season for the Wild Card-hunting Halos.

Ben Zobrist (neck) is back in the Cubs' lineup on Wednesday night against the Reds.

Zobrist was held out of the starting lineup Tuesday due to a stiff neck, but he came off the bench and drove in the Cubs' only run with a pinch-hit RBI single. He will start at second base and bat leadoff Wednesday versus Cincinnati right-hander Homer Bailey.

Andrew Benintendi (knee) is in the Red Sox starting lineup on Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Benintendi left Tuesday night's blowout win over St. Louis after taking a Mike Leake pitch off his left knee in the bottom of the fifth inning. There was never any serious concern. Benintendi is 18-for-43 (.419) with five home runs, 13 RBI, five stolen bases, and 12 runs scored in 11 games this month. He'll start in left field and bat third Wednesday versus Cardinals right-hander Lance Lynn.

Jon Morosi of FOX Sports hears the Marlins are "willing to engage with other teams" on a possible Giancarlo Stanton trade.

Stanton cleared revocable waivers on Sunday, so he's eligible to be dealt to any club -- assuming he would not exercise his full no-trade protection. Miami's asking price is probably sky high even with Stanton owed more than $285 million on a mega-contract that runs through 2027. The 27-year-old slugger is batting .285/.376/.646 with a league-leading 44 home runs and 94 RBI in 116 games this season.

Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said he's hopeful Odubel Herrera (hamstring) will be able to return to the starting lineup Thursday in San Francisco.

Herrera is sitting out again Wednesday afternoon against the Padres after suffering a mild left hamstring strain on Monday night, though Mackanin suggested that he could be used as a pinch-hitter in the series finale at Petco Park. Nick Williams is starting in center field, Rhys Hoskins is starting in left field, and Cameron Perkins is in right.
Aug 16 - 1:43 PM

Kyle Seager (illness) is out of the Mariners' lineup again on Wednesday.

Seager has a stomach virus and will miss his second consecutive game. Danny Valencia is starting at third base and batting sixth Wednesday afternoon against the Orioles and right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez.

Jered Weaver has announced his retirement from baseball.

Weaver opened the season 0-5 with a 7.44 ERA in nine starts before landing on the disabled list in May due to a hip injury that continues to plague him. "While I've been working hard to get back on the mound, my body just will not allow me to compete like I want to," Weaver said in a statement Wednesday. "Many thanks to the Padres organization for the opportunity to play in the amazing city of San Diego. You have been very professional and respectful during this process and I really appreciate that." The 34-year-old right-hander spent 12 seasons in the major leagues between the Angels and Padres, compiling a 150-98 record and 3.63 career ERA. He had three straight top-five finishes in the American League Cy Young Award balloting back in 2010-2012.

Jayson Werth (foot) is reporting to the Nationals' spring training facility in West Palm Beach, Florida.

He'll work out there for the next couple of days before possibly embarking on a minor league rehab assignment over the weekend. Werth has been on the disabled list since early June with a bone bruise in his left foot. The veteran outfielder should be ready for activation around the final week of August or first week of September, assuming he can avoid setbacks.
