According to Thomas Harding of MLB.com, the Rockies have been scouting Tigers reliever Justin Wilson.

Zach Britton of the Orioles and A.J. Ramos of the Marlins are also targets of the Rockies as they try to beef up their bullpen for the stretch run. Colorado's biggest need is relief pitching, and we might see multiple arms head that way before July 31. Wilson, a 29-year-old left-hander, owns a 2.75 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, and 55/16 K/BB ratio in 39 1/3 innings this season. He is under control through 2018.

According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the Cubs "remain interested" in Tigers starter Justin Verlander.

Morosi adds, however, that Chicago has shown reluctance to pay the $60 million that Verlander is still owed on a contract that runs through 2019. The 34-year-old right-hander has posted an underwhelming 4.50 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in 124 innings this season, after finishing with a 3.04 ERA last year. Detroit is going to have to eat some cash in order to find a willing trade partner before the July 31 deadline.

Alex Bregman was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Phillies with discomfort in his right hamstring.

Bregman tripled and scored in the top of the third inning before getting lifted. The young third baseman entered play Tuesday with a red-hot .356/.457/.627 batting line in 70 plate appearances since July 4.

Brewers acquired RHP Anthony Swarzak from the White Sox for OF/3B Ryan Cordell.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports was first to report word of the swap. Swarzak arrives in Milwaukee as a reliable setup option for closer Corey Knebel, after registering a 2.23 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 52/13 K/BB ratio over 48 1/3 innings this season on the south side of Chicago. The 31-year-old right-hander can become a free agent in November.

Cardinals placed RHP Adam Wainwright on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to July 23, with a stiff back.

This comes out of nowhere for Wainwright, who had looked strong in his last several outings. It should be a short absence. St. Louis will announce a corresponding roster move on Wednesday. Luke Weaver may be on the way up.

According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the Brewers and Tigers are "engaged in ongoing discussions" on a trade involving both Ian Kinsler and Justin Wilson.

ESPN's Buster Olney was first to report word of the Brewers' interest in Kinsler last week. The veteran second baseman is batting just .248/.331/.399 with nine home runs and 28 RBI in 81 games this season, but he's only owed around $4 million and the Brewers are exploring a range of options to upgrade their roster for the stretch run. Wilson, a 29-year-old left-handed reliever, owns a 2.75 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, and 55/16 K/BB ratio in 39 1/3 innings this season with Detroit.

According to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com, the Yankees are "making progress toward" a trade with the A's that would involve both Sonny Gray and Yonder Alonso.

Feinsand notes that Oakland has been "heavily scouting the Yankees' system of late." Gray is also believed to be drawing serious trade interest from the Nationals, Dodgers, Astros, and Braves. The 27-year-old right-hander holds a 3.66 ERA, 1.176 WHIP, and 85/28 K/BB ratio in 91 innings this season and he is under contractual control through 2019. Alonso, a 30-year-old first baseman batting .264/.363/.535 with 21 home runs in 89 games, is scheduled to become a free agent this winter.

Willson Contreras went 3-for-4 with a home run and four total RBI in the Cubs' 7-2 defeat of the White Sox on Tuesday.

Contreras belted a three-run homer in the bottom of the first inning and an RBI single in the bottom of the sixth. The 25-year-old catcher has been in a good offensive groove since the middle of May and now boasts a .273/.336/.498 batting line with 16 home runs and 56 RBI over 89 games this season.

Rafael Devers will start at third base and bat ninth Tuesday in his MLB debut.

Devers got promoted to the majors on Monday afternoon but did not start against Mariners left-hander James Paxton. He'll get his turn Tuesday with Seattle throwing right-hander Felix Hernandez. The ultra-talented 20-year-old was slashing .311/.377/.578 with 20 home runs and 60 RBI in 86 games this season between Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Brewers are in talks with the White Sox about reliever Anthony Swarzak.

Swarzak earned the first save of his career on Monday against the Cubs and boasts a 2.23 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 52/13 K/BB ratio in 48 1/3 innings this season. The 31-year-old right-hander is scheduled to become a free agent this winter, so he'd likely be a rental property for Milwaukee.
