Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star reports that Carlos Beltran tops the Royals' revised offseason wish list and the club "appears willing" to offer him a three-year contract.

The Royals crossed one thing off their to-do list when they signed Jason Vargas. They're now focused on adding a hitter, and Beltran appears to be the name they're most coveting. The Yankees, Tigers, Red Sox, Rangers, Orioles and Mariners are also interested in Beltran and have more money to spend than the Royals, but Dutton says the club believes they "can make the dollars work... if the bidding doesn’t get too high."

Yoenis Cespedes (quad) is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres.

Avisail Garcia is expected to miss at least two weeks due to a ligament strain in his right thumb.

Garcia will undergo an MRI to determine whether there is any structural damage in the thumb. Alen Hanson will play right field in his place against the Cubs on Wednesday and figures to see extended at-bats while Garcia is out of action. Prior to the injury, the outfielder was hitting .303/.347/.485 with 13 homers and 54 RBI across 88 games played.

Dallas Keuchel (neck) will start against the Tigers in Detroit on Friday.

A neck injury has kept Keuchel out of action since early June. He went through his minor league rehab assignment without issue and is now set to rejoin the rotation. Prior to his injury concern, Keuchel had been pitching to a 1.67 ERA in 11 starts. Filling out the rest of the weekend rotation, Collin McHugh will take the ball on Saturday and Lance McCullers will go on Sunday.

Rockies placed RHP Greg Holland on the paternity leave list.

Brewers recalled OF Lewis Brinson from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Brinson is starting in center field and batting seventh Wednesday night against Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez. The 23-year-old top prospect struggled in his first taste of major league action last month, but he's capable of much better results down the stretch for a Brewers team with designs on making the postseason. Brinson should start against most left-handers and some righties.

Alex Cobb fired seven innings of one-run ball Wednesday in the Rays' 5-1 victory over the Orioles.

Cobb allowed just one walk and four hits while racking up six strikeouts in the easy-looking 94-pitch effort. The one run he gave up came on a solo homer by Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop in the top of the fourth inning. Cobb has run into a couple of rough patches this season, but he owns a cool 3.46 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 90/34 K/BB ratio in 138 innings overall and he's been especially sharp over his last four outings. A road test against the first-place Astros is up next.

Phillies activated OF Aaron Altherr from the 10-day disabled list.

Altherr missed exactly 10 days with a strained right hamstring. The 26-year-old outfielder returns to an impressive .288/.359/.539 batting line with 14 home runs, 44 RBI, five stolen bases, and 40 runs scored in 79 games.

Mookie Betts is out of the Red Sox starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Mariners.

It's a rare day off for the 24-year-old outfielder, who went 0-for-6 with two strikeouts in Tuesday night's extra-innings loss at Safeco Field. Brock Holt is in right and batting leadoff Wednesday versus M's right-hander Andrew Moore.
Jul 26 - 1:51 PM

Robinson Cano is getting the day off Wednesday.

Danny Espinosa will start at second base and bat ninth for the Mariners against Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale. It appears to be routine rest for Cano.

David Peralta (knee) is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Braves.

Peralta fouled a ball off his left knee in the sixth inning Tuesday, though it doesn't seem to be anything too serious. Gregor Blanco will play left field and bat leadoff in the 3:40 p.m. ET start versus Braves right-hander Aaron Blair.
