Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun reports that the Blue Jays have offered Colby Rasmus to two teams in hopes of getting starting pitching in return.

Elliott doesn't list which teams the Jays have talked to. MLBTradeRumors.com projects Rasmus to earn $6.5 million in what will be his final year of arbitration. It's not a bad salary for a guy that batted .276/.338/.501 with 22 homers in 2013, but the Jays would take some pitching help in exchange for a guy nearing free agency.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Brewers are not willing to trade Jonathan Lucroy.

The Brewers look like obvious sellers at the moment, with names like Kyle Lohse and Matt Garza likely to be dealt. Lucroy would obviously net a bigger return than either of them, but the Brewers see him as a core player. The 28-year-old is making $3 million this season and $4 million next year while his contract includes a $5.25 million club option for 2017.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Monday that David Wright (hamstring) is not back to 100 percent yet.

Wright ramped up some baseball activities last week, but he's not running at 100 percent and the Mets won't have a clear timetable for his return until he does. "It’s just hard to say," said Alderson. "He could be a week away, could be 10 days away. Until he gets into a game situation and feels confident with the leg, we’re not going to know." There was some talk about him returning this weekend, but now it appears that the best-case scenario is sometime next week. Daniel Murphy will continue to play third base during his absence while young Dilson Herrera will play second.

Madison Bumgarner flirted with a no-hitter in Monday's win against the Padres, tossing 7 1/3 scoreless innings.

Justin Upton singled to lead off the seventh inning, ending Bumgarner's attempt at a no-hitter. Yangervis Solarte followed up with a single himself, but Bumgarner saw himself out of the no-out jam with no further damage. They were the only two hits he allowed. He issued only one walk while striking out six. The lefty has put together back-to-back dominant outings, lowering his ERA to 3.03. Bumgarner also owns a 1.06 WHIP with a 32/6 K/BB ratio in 38 2/3 innings. He'll take on the Marlins at home next.

Nelson Cruz broke a scoreless tie in the seventh inning with a solo home run, his 14th of the season, to help the Mariners take down the Angels on Monday.

Angels starter Matt Shoemaker was twirling a gem until Cruz ripped a line drive down the left field line to put the Mariners up 1-0. He finished 1-for-4 on the night. Cruz has four home runs in his last four ballgames. Along with the 14 in total, he has knocked in 26 runs and is batting .340/.382/.796.

Mark Reynolds went 2-for-3 with a walk and a grand slam as the Cardinals narrowly defeated the Cubs on Monday.

The Cardinals were behind 5-0 before they even had a chance to bat, but Reynolds immediately brought them back into the game with a grand slam in the bottom half of the inning off of Travis Wood. It's only the second home run of the year for Reynolds, who has served as a pinch-hitter and occasional first baseman against left-handed starters. He's batting .216/.341/.459 on the year along with eight RBI.

Stephen Vogt finished 3-for-5 with a grand slam and an RBI double in Monday's loss versus the Twins.

Vogt sent the A's up 4-0 early with a first-inning grand slam off of Phil Hughes. He added an RBI double in the ninth in an attempt to help his team stage a comeback, but it fell short. Vogt homered twice and knocked in four runs on Sunday, continuing what has been a highly productive season. He's batting .372/.462/.718 with seven home runs and 25 RBI on the season.

X-rays on Leonys Martin's left wrist came back negative.

Martin injured the wrist while trying to make a catch on Monday, but he's managed to come away with just a bruise. Consider the outfielder day-to-day.

Monday's game between the Diamondbacks and Rockies has been postponed due to rain.

No makeup date has been announced. Scheduled starters Josh Collmenter and Tyler Matzek will be pushed back a day.
May 4 - 11:16 PM

Jean Segura (head) is expected to return to the Brewers' lineup on Tuesday.

Segura was hit on the helmet by a Pedro Strop fastball on Sunday, but he'll wind up missing just one game. The young shortstop is sporting a .289/.324/.381 batting line with one homer and five stolen bases this season.
May 4 - 11:01 PM

Jake Odorizzi picked up his third win on Monday, holding the Red Sox to one run over seven innings.

Odorizzi scattered seven hits without issuing a walk and striking out six. The Red Sox plated their only run in the second inning following a Xander Bogaerts triple. The 25-year-old Odorizzi has been close to lights-out through his first six starts, owning a 2.21 ERA with a 0.89 WHIP and a 32/8 K/BB ratio in 40 2/3 innings. He'll test his stuff next in a home start versus the Rangers.
May 4 - 10:51 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said after Monday's game that Hanley Ramirez's left shoulder injury is not a "clear-cut DL" situation.

Farrell referred to Ramirez, who has been diagnosed with a left shoulder sprain following a collision with the side wall, as day-to-day. It's certainly possible that Hanley could still wind up going on the disabled list, but Farrell's words are encouraging. Ramirez has had surgery on the shoulder twice before.
