FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Nationals would like to trade Drew Storen.

Storen will make $3.45 million in 2014 and will be due for raises in 2015 and 2016 in his final two arbitration years. It's evidently more than the Nats want to pay for a guy who is coming off a disappointing year and who is slated for seventh inning duty. That said, Storen is fully capable of bouncing back, and $3.45 million is a relative bargain for a potential closer. The Nats should get plenty of phone calls if they're indeed motivated to deal him.

Masahiro Tanaka (shoulder) is expected to start Tuesday against the Tigers.

Aroldis Chapman has been temporarily removed from the closer role.

The move was long overdue as Chapman hasn't looked right in a while. Whether it's his hamstring or simply fatigue from pitching deep into the playoffs last year, the flame-throwing left-hander hasn't been himself in 2017, producing a very un-Chapman-like 4.29 ERA over 38 appearances. Chapman should eventually reclaim his closer status—the Yankees didn't pay $86 million for him to work in middle relief—but right now he's doing more harm than good in the ninth inning. Dellin Betances and David Robertson will split save chances while Chapman works to rebuild his confidence in a lower leverage role.

Yankees activated LHP CC Sabathia from the 10-day disabled list.

Jordan Montgomery was sent down to Triple-A in the corresponding move. Sabathia ended up missing just one start with knee inflammation and will take the hill Saturday at Boston. He'll have his work cut out for him with Chris Sale going for the division-leading Red Sox.

Nationals activated RHP Stephen Strasburg from the 10-day disabled list.

Strasburg will get the nod Saturday against his hometown Padres. He's taking the place of Max Scherzer, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list with neck inflammation. Strasburg has pitched well when healthy, delivering a 3.25 ERA over 20 starts this season.

Yoan Moncada (shin) was scratched from the White Sox's lineup Saturday against the Rangers.

He's out with shin splints in his right leg. Yolmer Sanchez will spell him at second base and bat ninth against Rangers left-hander Martin Perez. Consider Moncada day-to-day.
Aug 19 - 5:37 PM

Jose Quintana pitched well in Saturday's victory over the Blue Jays, racking up eight strikeouts over six innings of two-run ball.

The left-hander scattered four hits and a pair of walks on the afternoon. The Jays pushed across two runs in the fourth inning on a two-run single by Raffy Lopez, but Quintana was in complete command otherwise. He now sports a 4.27 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 155/53 K/BB ratio over 145 1/3 innings on the year. He'll do battle against the Phillies in Philadelphia on Friday.
Aug 19 - 5:34 PM

Padres optioned OF Hunter Renfroe to Triple-A El Paso.

His roster spot will be absorbed by Jabari Blash. Despite his immense power (20 homer), Renfoe's .230 average wasn't cutting it in the big leagues. Renfroe has been pressing lately (four for his last 26 with 16 strikeouts) and could probably use a couple weeks to recharge in the minor leagues. He'll be back when rosters expand next month.
Aug 19 - 4:48 PM

Rangers placed Carlos Gomez on the 10-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury.

The move was made retroactive to August 16. Gomez had a cyst removed from his right shoulder and is still recovering. Utility man Phil Gosselin was called up to take his roster spot. It should be a minimum DL stint for Gomez, who has hit .251 with 15 homers, 42 RBI and 11 steals this season.
Aug 19 - 4:41 PM

Dodgers placed RHP Yu Darvish on the 10-day disabled list with back tightness.

The Dodgers aren't overly concerned with the issue, and Darvish is only expected to miss one start. He's slated to return to the rotation next Sunday against the Brewers.
Aug 19 - 2:43 PM

Dodgers optioned OF Joc Pederson to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

With Friday's addition of Curtis Granderson, the struggling Pederson was squeezed out of his role as the club's primary center fielder against right-handed pitching. The 25-year-old was hitting just .116/.218/.261 with two homers, seven RBI and a 14/6 K/BB ratio over 78 plate appearances in his last 26 games dating back to July 16.
Aug 19 - 2:12 PM

Curtis Granderson is starting in left field and batting fifth in his Dodgers' debut against the Tigers on Saturday.

Granderson was acquired from the Mets late on Friday and is already in Motown with his new club. He adds another potent left-handed bat to an already deep and supremely talented Dodgers' lineup.
