Cameron Maybin has been suspended 25 games by Major League Baseball for testing positive for amphetamines.

It was Maybin's second positive test as you're only given a warning and eventually more testing after testing positive the first time. Maybin is batting just .247/.286/.368 over 62 games for the Padres this season. Jeff Francoeur has replaced him on the roster.

Royals acquired RHPs Trevor Cahill and Brandon Maurer and LHP Ryan Buchter from the Padres in exchange for LHPs Matt Strahm and Travis Wood and INF Esteury Ruiz.

Robert Murray of FanRag Sports first reported the deal and it is now official. Cahill has experienced a big bounce-back season in 2017, posting a 3.69 ERA and 72/24 K/BB ratio over 61 innings. He'll give the Royals some more reliable innings out of the back-end of their rotation. Meanwhile, Maurer and Buchter will supplement Kansas City's relief corps.

Matt Carpenter (quad) is expected back in the Cardinals' lineup Tuesday.

Carpenter isn't playing Monday after exiting Sunday's game with a tight right quad, but manager Mike Matheny said it was simply a dehydration issue and the infielder is feeling much better. Luke Voit is starting at first base Monday.
Jul 24 - 5:47 PM

Dallas Keuchel (neck) is expected to rejoin the Astros' rotation on Friday or Saturday in Detroit.

Collin McHugh will start whichever of the two days Keuchel doesn't. The former Cy Young winner allowed one run on three hits over five innings Saturday for Short-Season Tri-City in his final rehab start. Keuchel has been out since early June with a neck injury.

Twins acquired LHP Jaime Garcia, C Anthony Recker and cash considerations from the Braves in exchange for RHP Huascar Ynoa.

The two sides tentatively agreed to a trade last week, but it was nixed due to physical concerns with Nick Burdi (elbow), who had been slated to go to Atlanta in the deal. Garcia has been up-and-down this season, posting a 4.30 ERA and 85/41 K/BB ratio over 113 innings, but he should offer Minnesota more reliable work at the back of their rotation.

Joel Sherman of New York Post reports that the Braves "have gotten more involved" in trade talks for Sonny Gray.

The Braves aren't really viewed as a legit playoff contender this season, but they've been connected to Gray dating back to the offseason as they seek to obtain a cost-controlled starter. They certainly have the pieces in their farm system to get something done. Sherman notes that the Yankees and Brewers are viewed as the "strongest pursuers" over Gray at this point, with the Astros "still trying, too." The Mariners, Twins and Indians have also been connected to Gray.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that there's been "little indication" to this point that the Rangers will trade Yu Darvish.

The Rangers reported have put out feelers to see what Darvish could potentially bring back in return, but they've won three straight and sit just 2.5 games out of a Wild Card spot. They are also interested in re-signing Darvish to a long-term contract and figure they'd have a better chance to do it if they hang on to him. Unless the Rangers collapse over the next week, it seems likely that they'll hang on to their ace. Sherman notes that Darvish is "pretty much" the Dodgers' "only interest" among starters, so they could stand pat in that regard if the Texas righty isn't made available.

Mets placed RHP Zack Wheeler on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to July 23, with a stress reaction in his right arm.

Well, that doesn't sound good, especially given Wheeler's arm injury history. It's unclear at this point how long the right-hander will be sidelined, but the out-of-contention Mets certainly figure to proceed cautiously. Tyler Pill has replaced Wheeler on the roster and could get some starts.

MLB.com's Mark Feinsand reports that the Mariners "might be preparing to make a run" for Sonny Gray.

Feinsand's source told him that general manager Jerry Dipoto "is going for it these next two years" and "if he is going for it, he might as well go completely in." Seattle doesn't have a terribly strong farm system, but it sounds like Dipoto could be willing to empty the cupboard in order to acquire a quality starter who is under team control through 2019. He'll have plenty of competition for Gray, of course, as most every contender looking for pitching help has been connected to him.

Aaron Altherr (hamstring) expects to return from the disabled list by the end of the week.

Altherr is eligible to return on Tuesday, but he needs a little more time. Howie Kendrick figures to slide into a utility role once he's ready to return. Of course, Kendrick is likely to be traded soon.
Jul 24 - 3:51 PM

Troy Tulowitzki (groin) has returned to the Blue Jays' lineup Monday.

Tulo apparently got the go-ahead after taking ground balls and doing some light baserunning early Monday. The veteran shortstop sat out Saturday and Sunday with groin soreness.
Jul 24 - 3:43 PM

Chris Davis is not in Monday's lineup versus the Rays.

He'll take a seat against lefty Blake Snell. Mark Trumbo is drawing the start at first base while Welington Castillo serves as the DH. Caleb Joseph will start behind the plate and catch Kevin Gausman.
