Yoenis Cespedes hit a go-ahead two-run home run in the eighth inning as the Red Sox eked out a one-run victory over the Reds on Tuesday.

With a runner on second base, Cespedes homered to center field off of Jonathan Broxton to turn a 2-1 Red Sox deficit into a 3-2 lead in the eighth inning. He has now homered in back-to-back games, accounting for his only two home runs since joining his new team. Including his time with the Athletics, the outfielder has a .256/.301/.467 slash line with 19 home runs and 74 RBI.

Todd Frazier was a late scratch from the White Sox starting lineup on Friday due to flu-like symptoms.

Fantasy owners will be sad to miss out on a matchup against Ricky Nolasco. Tyler Saladino will start in his place at third base and bat eighth for the White Sox.

Jayson Stark of ESPN reports that there may be a blockbuster three-team trade in the works between the Dodgers, Reds and a mystery club that would send Jay Bruce to the Dodgers.

No team is linked to more rumors at this time of the year than the vaunted "mystery team", but it sounds as though the Dodgers are hellbent on acquiring the Reds' slugger. It's looking increasingly likely that Bruce will be wearing a new uniform in August.

John Lester was dominant in Friday's victory over the Mariners, racking up seven strikeouts over six shutout innings.

The veteran southpaw scattered four hits and a pair of walks on the afternoon. He has been tremendous for the Cubs this season, registering a 2.95 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 125/38 K/BB ratio over 128 1/3 innings while posting an 11-4 record. He'll look to replicate this fine outing when he does battle against the Marlins on Wednesday.

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) remained out of the Dodgers' lineup Friday.

He hasn't played in a week due to a strained hamstring and a disabled list stint could be in the offing. Andrew Toles is handling right field.
Jul 29 - 5:42 PM

Jhonny Peralta (thumb) is on track to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday, the first day he's eligible.

Peralta is not expected to go out on a rehab assignment, as he'll just rehab his thumb with some baseball activities over the weekend. The veteran infielder has been out of action with soreness in his surgically-repaired left thumb.

Matt Carpenter (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Springfield on Sunday.

If all goes well, Carpenter is expected to be activated from the disabled list next Friday. The infielder has been on the shelf for the last three weeks with a strained right oblique.
Jul 29 - 5:21 PM

Ryan Braun (side) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Friday.

Braun has had trouble getting loose the last few days, feeling some tightness in his right side. At this point it's not considered more than a day-to-day injury. Jake Elmore is in left field Friday.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Braun's absence is great news for Steven Brault, but the Brewers still possess multiple RH bats that should give him trouble. Chris Carter and Jonathan Lucroy will shift up one spot in the order with Hernan Perez batting fifth and Jake Elmore slotting second. Perez is arguably the sneakiest target of the group; he owns a very solid .348 wOBA, .256 ISO and 39.4 hard% against southpaws in 2016 and has added 16 SBs despite limited playing time earlier in the season. Elmore is a viable punt play batting second, but he doesn't have much of a ceiling.
Jul 29 - 5:01 PM

Carlos Gomez (hamstring) hopes to return to the lineup on Sunday.

Gomez injured his right hamstring in Wednesday's win over the Yankees. He underwent an MRI, which apparently revealed just a minor strain. Gomez said Friday that he's feeling better and hopes to be ready to go later this weekend. Jake Marisnick is in center field Friday.
Jul 29 - 4:17 PM

Rich Hill (blister) will not start for the Athletics on Sunday against the Indians.

Hill threw a bullpen session Friday without a covering on his blistered left middle finger. While the blister is doing better, he's still not ready to take the ball. That means he will not make another start before the trade deadline and will have gone over two weeks in between starts. It obviously is going to affect his trade market, although he still seems likely to be dealt. Sonny Gray will start on regular rest Sunday.
Jul 29 - 3:59 PM

ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Mariners have inquired on Zack Cozart.

Ketel Marte (mono) is due back in about a week and is unlikely to be going anywhere, so Cozart seems like an odd fit. Stark says that the Mariners have looked into acquiring Jay Bruce, as well. Cozart is arbitration-eligible for a final time this winter.
Jul 29 - 3:53 PM

Rays placed 1B Logan Morrison on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 28, with a right forearm strain.

LoMo returned from the injury a couple days ago after missing a week of action, but apparently he still wasn't feeling 100 percent. It's unclear how much time he might miss. Steve Pearce will handle first base, at least until he's traded.
