Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports that the Red Sox and David Ortiz are having discussions Friday about extending the designated hitter's contract through 2015.

Ortiz will be paid $15 million next season before hitting free agency, but the Red Sox want to make sure he never hits the open market. The veteran DH turned 38 last month, but he appears to have more left in the tank after batting .309/.395/.564 with 30 homers and 103 in 2013 before winning the World Series MVP.

David Vassegh 570 AM in Los Angeles writes that the "indication" is that the Dodgers will place Corey Seager (hamstring) on the disabled list Sunday or Monday.

Seager strained his right hamstring on Friday. It's considered a Grade 1 strain and doesn't look like a long-term ailment, but it appears the Dodgers intend to play things safely here. Mike Freeman has been added to the Dodgers' taxi squad and looks like Seager's replacement on the roster.

Zach Britton (forearm) is aiming to rejoin the Orioles' bullpen on July 5.

Britton has tossed three scoreless innings so far on his rehab assignment with Low-A Delmarva. He'll move up to Double-A Bowie to pitch Monday and Thursday, then go to High-A Frederick and finally to Triple-A Norfolk. Assuming he continues to progress without any setbacks, Britton will be activated on July 5, five games before the All-Star break.

Carlos Rodon (biceps) will rejoin the White Sox' rotation this week.

Manager Rick Renteria hinted Saturday that Rodon was ready to go and he made it official Sunday. It's unclear which day he'll make his 2017 debut, but he would be on regular rest Wednesday against the Yankees. Rodon has been on the shelf all season with left biceps tendinitis.

Matt Kemp (hamstring) has been added to the Braves' lineup on Sunday.

Kemp had been slated to miss a third straight start with a tight hamstring, but he talked his way into the lineup. He's in left field and batting cleanup against Zach Davies and the Brewers.
Jun 25 - 11:50 AM

Miguel Sano (illness) is back in the Twins' lineup Sunday.

Sano had been feeling under the weather. Max Kepler (foot) and Eddie Rosario (illness) are also back in there.
Jun 25 - 11:20 AM

Yunel Escobar (thumb) remained out of the Angels' lineup Sunday.

Escobar is feeling better, but he'll miss a second straight start with a strained left thumb. Kaleb Cowart is at third base.
Jun 25 - 11:12 AM

Jason Heyward (hand) will hit off a tee Sunday.

Heyward took some light swings Saturday and is ready to take the next step. He's working his way back from an abrasion on his right hand and could be activated on Thursday when first eligible.
Jun 25 - 11:00 AM

Kyle Hendricks (hand) played catch Saturday with no issues.

He'll play catch again Sunday. Hendricks had been shut down for the last two weeks with tendinitis in his right hand, but it appears he's making some progress. Obviously, he's at the beginning of his throwing progression, so it still figures to be a couple weeks before he returns even if all goes well.

Nomar Mazara (forearm) remained out of the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

He's missed two straight starts because of a bruised right forearm that came as a result of an Aroldis Chapman hit by pitch. Delino DeShields is in left field and Shin-Soo Choo is in right.
Jun 25 - 10:18 AM

Blake Snell will start for the Rays on Wednesday in Pittsburgh.

Erasmo Ramirez is headed back to the bullpen. Snell was sent down last month after posting a 4.71 ERA over seven starts, but he's earned another opportunity with a 2.66 ERA and 61/15 K/BB ratio over 44 innings at Triple-A Durham. The left-hander is going to get swings and misses, but we'll see whether the improved control he showed at Durham translates now that he's back in the majors. We're skeptical.

Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Cardinals will recall Randal Grichuk from Triple-A Memphis prior to Sunday's game versus the Pirates.

The corresponding move isn't known yet. Grichuk had an eight-game hitting streak going at Memphis and had homered in six of his last 10 contests. He also sported a 29 percent strikeout rate and 4.8 percent walk rate, so the plate discipline the Cards hoped he'd magically find in the minors didn't happen. Manager Mike Matheny noted Saturday that he didn't think it would be wise to recall Grichuk and not play him, so he should be in the lineup fairly regularly. Who sits is the question, as Tommy Pham has been one of the team's best players over the last seven weeks.
