According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, free agent Scott Feldman wants at least three years, $30 million.

The price for starting pitching is high this winter and Feldman is trying to cash in after posting a solid 3.86 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 132/56 K/BB ratio in 181 2/3 innings this past summer between the Cubs and Orioles. Baltimore is said to have interest in re-signing him.

Rays acquired SS Adeiny Hechavarria from the Marlins for OF Braxton Lee and RHP Ethan Clark.

The Rays are expected to cover the remainder of Hechavarria's $4.35 million salary for this season. The 28-year-old has been sidelined for over a month with an oblique injury, but he was slated to make his return this week. He'll presumably take over as the primary shortstop for the Rays. Hechavarria, who is under team control through 2018, is a .255/.291/.337 hitter in the majors.

Rangers activated LHP Cole Hamels from the 10-day disabled list.

Indians activated OF Michael Brantley from the 10-day disabled list.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Nationals are pursuing free agent reliever Francisco Rodriguez and he's likely to sign with them.

Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports that it's expected to be a minor league deal. Rodriguez was released by the Tigers last week after posting an unsightly 7.82 ERA over 28 appearances this season. It's no secret that the Nationals need bullpen help, so they are hoping to catch some lightning in a bottle here. We're not optimistic.

Yankees activated OF Jacoby Ellsbury from the 7-day concussion disabled list.

As expected, Ellsbury will replace the injured Aaron Hicks (oblique) on the active roster. The veteran outfielder went 3-for-8 with two doubles during a brief minor league rehab assignment. He put up a .281/.349/.422 batting line over 39 games prior to suffering a concussion last month.

Diamondbacks placed OF Aaron Hicks on the 10-day disabled list with a right oblique injury.

Hicks suffered the injury during Sunday's game and is expected to miss 3-4 weeks. It's a shame, as the 27-year-old has enjoyed an excellent first base. Jacoby Ellsbury (concussion) has been activated from the disabled list to take his place on the active roster.

Paul Goldschmidt is out of Monday's lineup against the Phillies.

Goldschmidt will get a day of rest with the afternoon game. Daniel Descalso will fill in at first base.

Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) tossed three no-hit innings Sunday in his first minor league rehab start with the Giants' Arizona Rookie League team.

Bumgarner, who is coming back from a sprained left AC joint in his shoulder, struck out two and walked one. According to Tommy Stokke of FanRag Sports, the southpaw sat in the 88-91 mph range with his fastball. The plan calls for him to return to San Francisco on Monday and throw another bullpen session later in the week before continuing his rehab stint. If all goes well, the Giants' ace should return by the end of July.

Yadier Molina went 3-for-4 and delivered the go-ahead RBI single in the seventh inning on Sunday as the Cardinals rallied to beat the Pirates 8-4.

Molina also scored three runs in the ballgame. His RBI single in the seventh inning broke a 4-4 tie and put the Cardinals ahead to stay. The veteran backstop is enjoying another solid season at the dish, hitting .268/.300/.426 with nine long balls and 29 RBI.
