Brandon Moss blasted two home runs and a double against the White Sox in Tuesday's win.

He finished 3-for-5 with two runs scored and five RBI. Moss feasts on right-handers with all kinds of stuff, so he had a sort of delicious buffet of Scott Carroll (RBI double!), Frank Francisco (two-run sixth inning homer!), and Matt Lindstrom (two-run eighth inning homer!) to enjoy tonight. This was his fifth career multi-homer game. Moss is slashing .286/.364/.526 with eight homers and 29 RBI (sixth in the AL).

Jason Heyward has been dealing with muscle tightness in his left side for a few days.

Heyward suffered the injury making a throw from right field. He's healthy enough to play but manager Joe Maddon decided to play it safe by giving him another day off Thursday against Mets left-hander Steven Matz. Heyward should be back in the lineup on Friday.

Athletics placed LHP Sean Doolittle on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 26, with a strained left shoulder.

The oft-injured southpaw is heading back to the disabled list, though this soreness is not in the same area that troubled him in 2015. Doolittle compiled a 2.93 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 35/8 K/BB ratio over 30 2/3 innings before landing on the shelf.

Nationals manager Dusty Baker indicated Thursday that Stephen Strasburg (back) is unlikely to rejoin the rotation on Sunday against the Reds.

Baker didn't completely rule it out but said he's "more inclined not to rush him." Lucas Giolito pitched well in a rain-shortened major league debut, so the Nats can afford to give Strasburg a little more time. It does appear that he'll be back fairly soon, though.

Marlins acquired RHP Fernando Rodney from the Padres in exchange for RHP Chris Paddack.

Rodney has allowed only one earned run over 28 2/3 innings while sporting a 33/12 K/BB ratio out of the bullpen this season. With closer A.J. Ramos having yet to blow a save this season, Rodney presumably will slide into a setup role. Ryan Buchter is expected to be first in line for saves now in San Diego.
Jun 30 - 3:46 PM

Curtis Granderson (calf) remained out of the Mets' lineup Thursday.

Granderson was able to pinch-hit Wednesday but apparently isn't ready to return to the lineup just yet. Brandon Nimmo is in right field and in the leadoff spot and Kelly Johnson is in left.
Jun 30 - 3:39 PM

Dodgers acquired RHP Bud Norris, OF Dian Toscano, a player to be named later and cash considerations from the Braves in exchange for LHP Philip Pfeifer and RHP Caleb Dirks.

Norris will occupy a spot in the Dodgers' rotation while Clayton Kershaw (back) is on the shelf and is slated to make his debut for the club on Friday against the Rockies. The Dodgers are getting a hot pitcher, as the righty holds a 2.15 ERA and 29/8 K/BB ratio over his last 29 1/3 innings.
Jun 30 - 3:20 PM

Bryce Harper is not in the Nationals' lineup Thursday.

It's a rare day off for the slugger. Ben Revere is also getting a breather, as the Nats are going with Michael Taylor in center field and Chris Heisey in right.
Jun 30 - 3:08 PM

Corey Dickerson (thumb) is back in the Rays' lineup Thursday.

Dickerson missed four games with a sore thumb. He's in left field and hitting sixth against Jordan Zimmermann and the Tigers.
Jun 30 - 3:04 PM

ESPN's Keith Law hears that the Marlins are nearing a deal to acquire Fernando Rodney from the Padres.

Law says that the Padres will receive "a good A-ball prospect" in return. Rodney has had a fantastic season in San Diego, allowing just one earned run over 28 2/3 innings while sporting a 33/12 K/BB ratio. The trade is a big hit to his fantasy value, as he'll presumably slide into a setup role ahead of A.J. Ramos, who has converted all 24 of his save chances this season. The Padres might go with a committee in the ninth inning to replace Rodney, but Ryan Buchter and Brandon Maurer seem likely to get the first shot.
Jun 30 - 2:25 PM

Andrew Cashner (neck) is expected to rejoin the Padres' rotation on Sunday against the Yankees.

Cashner tossed three scoreless innings for High-A Lake Elsinore on Tuesday, and that was enough to convince the Padres he was ready. The right-hander has put up a disappointing 4.75 ERA over 11 starts this season. The Padres are considering going with six starters for a while rather than remove someone from the rotation to accommodate Cashner.
Jun 30 - 1:11 PM

Joc Pederson (shoulder) is not available to play Thursday.

Pederson is missing a second straight start with a bruised AC joint in his right shoulder, and he's not available off the bench, either. The hope is that he'll be ready to go sometime over the weekend. Trayce Thompson is again filling in in center field.
