CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Red Sox were prepared to up their extension offer to Jon Lester to "$100 million for five years, or thereabouts" before Lester halted negotiations.

The Red Sox' first offer -- which came during spring training -- was for four years and in the $70 million range and was quickly rejected by Lester. The left-hander told Heyman that he was "thrown off" but the club wanting to rekindle negotiations in-season and decided to officially table them until the offseason. Lester has done nothing but increase his stock this season, posting a 2.65 ERA and 134/29 K/BB ratio over 129 first-half innings.

Shelby Miller (elbow) will receive a second opinion on his ailing right elbow from Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles.

Miller went on the disabled list Monday with what the Diamondbacks are calling right elbow inflammation for now. However, manager Torey Lovullo wouldn't comment when asked if there was anything wrong with Miller's ligament, which could be an ominous sign. We should know more later this week. Archie Bradley is an option to take Miller's spot in the rotation, although the D'Backs are considering keeping him in the bullpen given his success there.

J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports that Julio Urias will be recalled to start Thursday against the Giants.

The signs had been pointing to this week being when Urias makes his season debut for the Dodgers. Slotting him in on Thursday will allow the club to give the struggling Kenta Maeda a little extra rest. Urias posted a 1.93 ERA and 15/9 K/BB ratio over 14 innings in his three starts for Triple-A Oklahoma City. The left-hander faces workload limits and can have control issues, but the upside here is obviously sky-high.

Joc Pederson (groin) is not in the Dodgers' lineup Monday.

It was expected after he hurt his right groin on Sunday. The good news is that Pederson hasn't been placed on the disabled list yet, so it appears he's day-to-day at this point. Enrique Hernandez is starting in center field.

Giants purchased the contract of INF Christian Arroyo from Triple-A Sacramento.

The Giants are 6-13 and reeling from the loss of Madison Bumgarner, so they're taking a shot that Arroyo might be able to provide a spark. A first-round pick in the 2013 Draft, Arroyo had a disappointing 2016 at the Double-A level but has been on fire this year at Sacramento, batting .446/.478/.692 with three homers, 12 RBI and two stolen bases. He is batting sixth Monday in his major league debut and will take over as the team's everyday third baseman, with Eduardo Nunez moving to left field. Arroyo might add something to San Francisco's offense, but the 21-year-old's skill set might not lead to much fantasy value, at least not right away.

Major League Baseball has suspended Miguel Sano one game for his involvement in an altercation during Saturday's game versus the Tigers.

Sano took exception to a Matt Boyd pitch that went behind him and then gave a hard shove to James McCann after the catcher intervened. The Twins' third baseman is in Monday's lineup and will continue to play until his appeal is heard.

Ian Desmond (hand) took batting practice on Monday.

It's the first time he's taken BP on the field since he suffered a fracture in his left hand in mid-March. The Rockies haven't said when Desmond would begin a rehab assignment, but it should be just right around the corner. A return in early May is looking likely.
Apr 24 - 5:18 PM

Bryce Harper is not in the Nationals' lineup Monday.

It's Harper's first day off of the season, as he had started each of the team's first 18 games. The timing is unfortunate for his fantasy owners given that the day off comes at Coors Field. Adam Eaton will slide over to right field and Michael Taylor will get a start in center. The Nationals also have Jose Lobaton at catcher over Matt Wieters.
Apr 24 - 5:12 PM

Salvador Perez (neck) is back in the Royals' lineup Sunday.

Perez missed a couple games with a stiff neck. He's catching and batting fifth against Miguel Gonzalez and the White Sox.

Zach Britton (forearm) will throw a full bullpen session on Wednesday.

That's assuming he feels fine Tuesday following Monday's flat-ground session. The Orioles are saying Britton will be re-evaluated after Wednesday's bullpen session but they didn't indicate whether a short rehab assignment might be the next step or if he might just be activated. We'll know more in a few days.
Apr 24 - 4:48 PM

Jake Odorizzi (hamstring) is on track to rejoin the Rays' rotation on May 1 in Miami.

Odorizzi threw a bullpen session over the weekend and will go through a four-inning simulated game on Tuesday. The right-hander says the strained left hamstring that put him on the disabled list is no longer an issue. Odorizzi posted a 4.15 ERA in his first 13 innings for the Rays before the injury.
Apr 24 - 4:43 PM

Dustin Pedroia (knee, ankle) is considered day-to-day after being examined Monday at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Good news for the Red Sox. Pedroia was spiked in the leg by Orioles third baseman Manny Machado on Friday and came down with soreness in his left knee and ankle, but it doesn't sound like he'll be sidelined much longer.
