FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that multiple teams have expressed interest in trading for Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia.

This news comes as a bit of a surprise, as Arencibia is coming off a terrible year in which he batted .194 with a .592 OPS. However, teams are apparently interested in his power. The 27-year-old is arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter. With a trade a legitimate possibility, the Blue Jays are currently monitoring the free agent market for a replacement at catcher.

Red Sox claimed RHP Doug Fister off waivers from the Angels.

Fister exercised the opt-out clause in his $1.75 million deal with the Angels earlier this week, but Boston scooped him up on release waivers. The sinkerballer could fill a spot in their rotation until Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) is ready to return.

Dustin Pedroia (ribs) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

Pedroia hasn't played since taking a pitch in the ribs on Sunday. Josh Rutledge continues to fill in at second base.

Rays placed OF Colby Rasmus on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 19, with left hip tendinitis.

It's the same hip Rasmus had surgery on last October, which isn't terribly encouraging. However, Rasmus said that he expects to return when first eligible on June 29.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Mets are telling teams they're "open for business now."

The Mets are sitting 12 games behind the Nationals in the National League East and are 14.5 games out of a Wild Card Spot, so it appears they're realistic about their chances of making the postseason. Olney lists Curtis Granderson, Addison Reed, Jay Bruce and Asdurbal Cabrera among the pieces that the Mets are willing to sell off. Of that group, only Cabrera is potentially under contract for next season, as the club has an $8.25 million option on him.

Marlins activated 3B Martin Prado from the 10-day disabled list.

Prado has been limited to 17 games this season due to a pair of hamstring injuries, but he's ready to go again now after playing a few rehab games. Derek Dietrich will move back into a utility role.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal writes that the odds of the Pirates trading Andrew McCutchen before next month's deadline are "good."

The Pirates shopped McCutchen heavily last winter and they seem likely to do so again even if they climb back into the playoff hunt. While the former MVP got off to a painfully slow start this season, he's been one of the hottest hitters in baseball over the last month with a .396/.486/.736 line and eight homers across his last 26 games. The Pirates holds an affordable $14.5 million club option on McCutchen for 2018. 'Cutch will turn 31 in October.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Johnny Cueto plans to exercise the opt-out clause in his contract after the season.

It's been a disappointing season for Cueto, as he's posted a 4.42 ERA over 15 starts. However, as long as he finishes the year healthy it makes sense that he'd opt out of the four years and $84 million he has remaining on his deal after this season. Even at 31 years old, he'd surely land a bigger contract than that as a free agent. Heyman does add that Cueto "would listen to any extension offer" from the club, but the Giants "don’t seem inclined to do that." Given their aging roster and multitude of long-term contracts, the Giants might be in favor of Cueto opting out.

Bud Norris (knee) is expected to resume a throwing program in the next couple days.

Norris was placed on the disabled list earlier this week with a right knee issue that has bothered him for nearly a month. The hope is that he'll be ready for activation from the DL when first eligible on June 29, and he seems likely to get his closer job back at that time.

Julio Urias will have his ailing left shoulder examined further this weekend in Los Angeles.

An MRI last week showed no structural damage, but Urias' shoulder is still bothering him and Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times writes that "there is a heightened level of concern about the severity" of the injury. That obviously doesn't sound good, but we'll know more about Urias' condition this weekend.

Nick Markakis went 4-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored to help the Braves hold on for a 12-11 win over the Giants on Thursday.

Markakis took Giants starter Matt Cain deep in the first inning for a two-run blast, just his third of the season. It kicked off the scoring in a game that would see 23 runs scored on 31 hits. Markakis himself picked up three more singles along the way, raising his line to .296/.374/.394 on the year. The 33-year-old has 41 RBI and 37 runs scored in 72 games as the Braves' primary right fielder.

Buster Posey was an extra-base hit machine Thursday, finishing 3-for-5 with two doubles, a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in a loss to the Braves.

Posey has always had a penchant for hitting left-handed pitching and feasted on Braves starter Jaime Garcia in this one, hitting a solo homer in the second and smacking two doubles off the southpaw before Garcia could be relieved. The homer was Posey's 10th of the season, the sixth straight year the backstop has reached double-digits in dingers. Quietly, the 30-year-old is having a remarkable offensive year this season, batting .344/.427/.537 through 63 games.
