CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Andre Ethier, Matt Kemp, Carl Crawford, and Josh Beckett have cleared revocable waivers.

Meanwhile, Hanley Ramirez was claimed and pulled back by the Dodgers. This ultimately doesn't mean much, as most players are placed on revocable waivers in August. Still, since Ethier, Kemp, Crawford, and Beckett all cleared, the Dodgers could hypothetically discuss trades involving them with any team.

Yangervis Solarte finished with a huge game in Thursday's 10-7 win over the Dodgers, going 4-for-5 with a solo home run, two doubles and three runs scored.

Tight effort by Solarte, who played a key role in the Padres' come-from-behind win. He cracked a solo homer in the seventh to draw his team to within 7-6, then finished off the night's scoring with an RBI double in a four-run eighth. The strong performance boosted the 28-year-old infielder's season triple-slash to .267/.321/.428. He's also hit 12 homers and driven in 55. This is the first season in which Solarte's seen more than 252 at-bats.

Top Dodgers prospect Corey Seager went 2-for-4 with a double, a two-run single and two runs scored in Thursday's 10-7 loss to the Padres.

Seager's two-run single in the sixth gave the Dodgers a 6-5 lead, but their bullpen would collapse in the late innings as they stole defeat from the jaws of victory. The 21-year-old shortstop is one of the top position prospects in the game and could make an immediate impact down the stretch, though his true fantasy value probably won't surface until he's installed for an entire season. Prior to Thursday's promotion, he hit to a .292/.343/.486 batting line with 18 homers and 74 RBI while splitting time between Double-A and Triple-A over the course of 124 games.

Carlos Gonzalez had another spectacular game Thursday, going 4-for-5 with two homers and four RBI in an 11-3 drubbing of the Giants.

Gonzalez had a career-high seven RBI in a two-homer game against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. He's the seventh player this year to have consecutive two-homer games, which is particularly impressive since he was also the fourth back on July 25-26. Gonzalez is now tops in the NL with 35 homers, one more than teammate Nolan Arenado. He's hit 31 of those in his last 76 games.
Sep 4 - 12:10 AM

Andrew McCutchen acknowledged Thursday that he's dealing with a "tight Achilles."

McCutchen made sure to say that his knee isn't the issue, but he admitted that he's been feeling "a little sore" and "hobbling around a little bit." He's not in the starting lineup Thursday, but we expect him back for Friday's series opener against the Cardinals.
Sep 3 - 5:15 PM

Daniel Murphy is dealing with a mild strain of his left quad.

Murphy left Wednesday's game with what was described as "mild discomfort" in his quad. He missed some time earlier this year with the same injury and has apparently been playing through it again in recent days. The Mets are calling him day-to-day for now.
Sep 3 - 4:42 PM

Eddie Rosario connected for a grand slam in the third inning of Thursday afternoon's 6-4 loss to the White Sox.

An Eduardo Escobar infield single and a pair of walks issued by White Sox starter Jeff Samardzija set the stage for Rosario to work his grand salami magic with two outs in the third inning. The 23-year-old outfielder is posting one of the sneakier productive seasons in the bigs in 2015, as he maintains a .271/.291/.446 triple-slash with nine homers, 10 triples, 37 RBI and 10 steals.
Sep 3 - 4:42 PM

Nationals manager Matt Williams said that Stephen Strasburg (back) felt fine coming out of his bullpen session Thursday.

Strasburg left his most recent start on Sunday due to discomfort in his upper back and will have his turn skipped on Friday. However, the expectation is that he'll make his return for a crucial series against the first-place Mets early next week.
Sep 3 - 4:30 PM

Michael Taylor (knee) is out again Thursday.

Taylor was a late scratch from Wednesday's series finale against the Cardinals with ongoing discomfort in his right knee. It's not believed to be a serious injury -- the Nationals were calling it a bruise last week -- but Taylor clearly needs at least one more day of rest. Bryce Harper is in center field and Clint Robinson is in left field on Thursday night against the Braves.
Sep 3 - 4:02 PM

Bryce Harper (glute) is in the Nationals' starting lineup on Thursday night against the Braves.

Harper made an early exit from Wednesday's win over the Cardinals with tightness in his left glute. But he looked fine for the four innings he played on Wednesday night and is back in action Thursday for the start of a four-game weekend set against the Braves. It's a very important series for the Nats, who need to make up ground in the NL East quickly.
Sep 3 - 3:59 PM

Mike Moustakas (hamstring) is out again Thursday.

Moustakas has now missed three straight games with a hamstring injury. It's considered minor, but the Royals will take advantage of their massive AL Central lead and give their third baseman an extra day of rest. Cheslor Cuthbert is at third base and batting eighth Thursday evening against Tigers lefty Matt Boyd.
Sep 3 - 3:51 PM

Matt Harvey (dehydration) is expected to be fine.

Harvey was not on the Mets' team flight to Miami after suffering from dehydration at the end of his outing Wednesday against the Phillies, but he should be good to take his next turn in the rotation in Washington, D.C. Harvey has a stellar 2.60 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 158/34 K/BB ratio in 166 1/3 innings this season for New York.
