According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, time has expired on the waiver claim of Ian Kinsler.

It's still unclear which team made that claim, but they were unable to work out a trade with the Tigers and so the veteran second baseman will finish out the 2017 season in Detroit. Kinsler is out of the Tigers' starting lineup Sunday versus the Twins after getting hit by a pitch on Saturday. He's batting .244/.323/.392 with 11 home runs and 34 RBI in 98 games this year.

Gleyber Torres (hip) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Tampa on Saturday.

The plan is for Torres to play a few games for Tampa and then rejoin the Yankees for the final game for their series against the Rays next Wednesday. The young infielder has been on the shelf for over two weeks with a strained right hip.

Padres shortstop prospect Fernando Tatis Jr. is expected to be done for the season after X-rays revealed a fractured left thumb.

Tatis suffered the injury on a stolen base attempt Thursday at Double-A San Antonio. He is likely to need surgery, although there is still hope after the swelling goes down that an MRI shows he can avoid an operation. Either way, his season is over, but the good news is the Padres don't expect the ailment to be an issue for Tatis beyond this year. One of the top prospects in the game, Tatis will finish the season with a .286/.355/.507 batting line, 16 homers, 43 RBI and 16 steals in 88 games.

Nationals activated 1B Ryan Zimmerman from the 10-day disabled list.

Zimmerman has been on the shelf since early May with an oblique strain but is finally ready to go after a 4-for-9 showing with a home run in three rehab games. He's surely going to require lots of days off, and the Nats have viable alternatives at first base in Matt Adams and Mark Reynolds. Zimmerman is not in the lineup Friday and he's more of a deeper league play at this point.

Nationals activated RHP Stephen Strasburg from the 10-day disabled list.

Strasburg will rejoin the Nationals' rotation Friday versus the Braves after missing six weeks of action with inflammation in his pitching shoulder. He threw 82 pitches in his last rehab outing, so Strasburg should be ready for a relatively normal workload Friday.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News expects the Rangers to recall Willie Calhoun prior to Friday's game against the Indians.

Calhoun tweeted out airplane emojis and "Dallas" Friday afternoon before quickly deleting the tweet. Grant believes it could just mean there are some moving parts with the roster that the Rangers haven't worked out yet and they didn't want Calhoun to spill the beans. It does appear the top prospect is finally getting a promotion, though. Calhoun has batted .306/.360/.444 with eight home runs at Triple-A Round Rock this season and has hit .429/.520/.619 so far in July. He is worth scooping up in all fantasy leagues where he's still available.

CC Sabathia plans to play one more season in 2019.

Sabathia will turn 38 on Saturday but has had another solid season with a 3.51 ERA and 1.27 WHIP over 18 starts. "I'm [going] start to start," Sabathia said last weekend. "I go out one start and feel like I can pitch five more years. I go out another start and I'm [feeling] done. But if I can stay healthy -- if my knee holds up -- hopefully I'll play one more." Sabathia didn't say he would only pitch for the Yankees in 2019, but that undoubtedly would be his preference. He's in his 10th season in pinstripes and 18th overall.

Orioles activated RHP Chris Tillman from the 10-day disabled list; designated him for assignment.

Tillman made three Opening Day starts for the Orioles and was an All-Star back in 2013, but the 30-year-old hasn't been any good for a while. The Orioles have offered him the chance to stick around in the organization at Triple-A Norfolk and Tillman is still trying to make up his mind whether he wants to do that or elect free agency. He's posted a hideous 8.42 ERA since the beginning of last season and wound surely have to settle for a minor league contract elsewhere.

Mets activated OF Yoenis Cespedes from the 10-day disabled list.

Cespedes wound up missing nine weeks of action with a strained hip flexor and he also dealt with a bout of quad tightness. The Mets had him play some first base while on a rehab assignment and he appears likely to see some time there at some point, but most of his at-bats should come in left field. As far as this weekend goes, he can be used in the designated hitter spot during the interleague series versus the Yankees.

The Mariners have signed manager Scott Servais to a multi-year contract extension.

This move was expected after the team inked general manager Jerry Dipoto to an extension earlier this month. The specifics of the extension weren't revealed. Servais has gone 222–199 in two and a half years at the helm of the Mariners, including a 58-39 record this season.

Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak conceded Thursday that the team could look to trade Jose Martinez to an American League club "at some point."

Interim manager Mike Shildt has had Martinez on the bench in both of his lineups so far, as he's preferred to go with the better defensive alignment with Matt Carpenter at first base and Jedd Gyorko at third. Martinez is sporting a nifty .299/.365/.478 batting line with 13 home runs and 56 RBI this season, but his defensive shortcomings make him a better fit as a designated hitter. He'll turn 30 next week but still won't be arbitration-eligible this winter, so there should be plenty of interest. Martinez's fantasy outlook appears cloudy should he remain in St. Louis.

Pedro Strop was asked to get the final out Thursday and was up to the task, earning his third save in preserving the Cubs' 9-6 win over the Cardinals.

With closer Brandon Morrow hitting the disabled list Thursday, there was some interest in how Cubs manager Joe Maddon would deploy his bullpen in a close game. How he did tells a story: Steve Cishek, viewed by some as a possible fill-in closer, pitched the seventh inning with a two-run lead; Carl Edwards Jr. entered in the eighth and was almost able to finish it off but yielded a run with two outs in the ninth; and needing a stopper, Maddon turned to Strop to finish it. Morrow's health is a constant question mark and Strop has been terrific this year, posting a 2.50 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 39/14 K/BB ratio over 39 2/3 innings of work, so he's worth adding everywhere, even if Morrow's stay on the shelf is abbreviated. Strop could still pick up a few saves between now and Morrow's return.
