FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Twins are "open to trading" Kendrys Morales.

Well, of course they are. Morales is under contract only for this season and the Twins are well out of the playoff picture, so it makes all the sense in the world to get something for Morales now if they can. While the designated hitter is sporting a lowly .599 OPS, he's picked it up of late with a 12-game hitting streak. The Mariners, Brewers, Yankees and Royals were among the teams pursuing Morales before the Twins signed him, but it's not which if any of those clubs could still have interest in the 31-year-old.

Christian Yelich is out of Thursday's lineup against the Pirates with a bruised knee.

Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald notes that he's not even taking batting practice, so this situation is worth watching. Derek Dietrich will start in left field while Ichiro Suzuki will play right.

Adrian Gonzalez (knee) said he's "100 percent" certain he'll be able to play Friday.

Gonzalez made an early exit from Thursday's series finale in Cincinnati after fouling a ball off his left knee, but he only suffered a small bruise. Los Angeles opens a big weekend series against the Cubs on Friday night.

Matt Shoemaker was fantastic in his return to the Angels rotation on Wednesday, allowing just one hit over 7 1/3 innings in a 2-0 win over the Tigers.

Shoemaker was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on August 16, but he rejoined the rotation on Thursday to pitch his best game of the season. The 28-year-old right-hander struck out five and walked one, with only an Anthony Gose single registering for a hit over his 7 1/3 innings of work. Don't expect these kinds of starts on a regular basis, but Shoemaker can be used as a match-up play in select situations. He takes a 4.48 ERA and 1.24 WHIP into his next start, a road showdown with the A's.

James Loney has dropped the appeal of his one-game suspension and will serve it Thursday night.

Loney was issued the punishment for making contact with home plate umpire Paul Nauert on Saturday after a called third strike. He probably wouldn't have been in the lineup anyway Thursday versus Twins lefty Tom Milone.

David Wright is back in the Mets' starting lineup, batting cleanup and playing third base, Thursday night against the Phillies.

Wright was given the night off Wednesday, but he is expected to start the Mets' next three games. The veteran third baseman homered Monday in his first game since April 14 and looks capable of providing significant fantasy value in the middle of an energized Mets lineup.
Aug 27 - 3:43 PM

Zack Greinke poured in a strong start in Thursday's 1-0 win over the Reds, tossing seven shutout innings.

Greinke scattered four hits while striking out nine and walking two. None of the hits went for extra-bases. With his strong seven innings, he improved to 14-3 on the season. He backs that record with a 1.61 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 164/31 K/BB ratio across 179 1/3 innings. A home start against the in-state rival Giants crops up next on Greinke's schedule.

Rays placed OF Desmond Jennings on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee bruise.

Jennings banged his surgically-repaired knee on a slide into second base over the weekend and hasn't felt right since. We might not see him again this season. Jennings, 28, will be arbitration eligible for the second time this winter after earning $3.1 million in 2015. He has appeared in only 28 games.

Jung Ho Kang is out of the Pirates' lineup Thursday.

Kang was also given a day off Tuesday. He's been worked hard in his first major league season and Jordy Mercer is back from his knee injury to take some of the reps at shortstop. Mercer will start there and bat eighth versus Miami on Thursday evening.
Aug 27 - 3:26 PM

Yasiel Puig was removed from Thursday's game against the Reds after re-injuring his right hamstring.

Puig pulled up lame after legging out an infield single against Aroldis Chapman in the top of the ninth inning. The 24-year-old Cuban outfielder could be looking at yet another extended absence. He's appeared in just 77 games this season for the Dodgers.
Aug 27 - 3:18 PM

Gregor Blanco (hip) is out of the Giants' starting lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

Blanco was a late scratch from Wednesday's game with a left hip strain, but he felt good running in the outfield on Thursday morning and could be available off the bench already. Juan Perez is starting in center field and batting seventh on Thursday afternoon.
Aug 27 - 2:13 PM

Brandon Crawford (oblique) is out of the Giants' starting lineup again on Thursday.

Crawford could need a couple more days to rest his tight left oblique. Ehire Adrianza is starting at shortstop and batting eighth on Thursday afternoon against the Cubs.
