Didi Gregorius hit two homers and knocked in three runs to help the Yankees to a 5-2 victory over the Indians in Game 5 of the ALDS on Wednesday.

When we say Gregorius was the early offense for New York in this one, we mean it. All three runs were knocked in by the shortstop up until Brett Gardner's two-run single in the ninth. And outside of Didi's two blasts off of Corey Kluber and that Gardner hit, the Yankees really didn't do much major damage at the plate. It's just another example of how much Gregorius has improved as a hitter since coming to New York. He'll need another big series if the Yankees are going to contend in the ALCS against Houston. That best-of-seven series begins Friday.

MLB.com's Jon Morosi reports that the Phillies are currently the "most likely destination" for Manny Machado.

Morosi says the Phillies are willing to include pitching prospect Adonis Medina -- who is ranked by MLB.com as the No. 2 player in their system -- in a deal for Machado, which looks to have catapulted them into the lead for the infielder's services. Jon Heyman of Fancred, among others, has reported that the Orioles are close to trading their star, although Machado will be representing Baltimore during Tuesday's All-Star Game. The Dodgers and Brewers are looking like the two other clubs most hot on Machado's trail, although it appears they might have some catching up to do.

Bryce Harper defeated Kyle Schwarber in the finals to win the 2018 All-Star Game Home Run Derby.

You didn't think anyone else was going to win at Nationals Park, did you? Harper smacked 13 home runs in the first round to eliminate Freddie Freeman and another 13 in the second round to take down Max Muncy. Schwarber batted first in the finals and set the bar high with 18 bombs, and it looked like it might hold up after Harper started slowly. However, Harper tied Schwarber with a flurry of dingers in the final 90 seconds and took advantage of 30 seconds of bonus time by banging one out to dead center field to win it. He became the third player ever to win the Derby in his home park.

Gleyber Torres (hip) hopes to be activated from the disabled list on July 23.

Torres ran the bases on Monday and said afterward that "I think I’m ready right now." However, Torres will first have a short rehab assignment with High-A Tampa over the weekend. He'll then rejoin the Yankees in a week for the start of their series against the Rays, assuming all goes well. Torres has been sidelined for nearly two weeks with a right hip strain.

Jacob deGrom's agent Brodie Van Wagenen told Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic on Monday that if the Mets don't intend to sign his client to an extension, the team's "best course of action is to seriously consider trade opportunities now."

The full quote, via Rosenthal's Twitter account: "We have discussed Jacob’s future with the Mets at length," said Van Wagenen. "Jacob has expressed interest in exploring a long-term partnership that would keep him in a Mets uniform for years to come. If the Mets don’t share [the] same interest, we believe their best course of action is to seriously consider trade opportunities now. The inertia of [the] current situation could complicate Jacob’s relationship with the club and creates an atmosphere of indecision." The 30-year-old right-hander is currently under team control through 2020 via salary arbitration. He holds an MLB-leading 1.68 ERA with 149 strikeouts in 123 1/3 innings this season.

Max Scherzer has been named as the National League starter for Tuesday night's All-Star Game in D.C.

Jacob deGrom and his MLB-leading 1.68 ERA would have been a fine choice as well, but Scherzer gets the nod with the game being played at Nationals Park, and deGrom will come on right after him. Scherzer, 33, registered a brilliant 2.41 ERA, 0.899 WHIP, and 182/34 K/BB ratio over 134 2/3 innings in the first half for Washington. He'll be opposed by Chris Sale to get things underway on Tuesday.

Chris Sale will start for the American League in Tuesday night's MLB All-Star Game in Washington, D.C.

Sale is the first pitcher to start three All-Star Games in a row since Robin Roberts in 1953-1955. The 29-year-old left-hander put up a sensational 2.23 ERA, 0.899 WHIP, and 188/31 K/BB ratio across 129 innings in the first half for Boston. Max Scherzer will take the mound first for the National League squad.

Yoenis Cespedes (hip, quad) hit two home runs in a simulated game Monday at the Mets' spring training complex.

He also singled, drew a walk, and played five innings of left field. Cespedes is aiming to come off the disabled list for the Mets' first game after the All-Star break on Friday night at Yankee Stadium, and he would seem to be on track to meet that goal. He can DH in that series before returning to the outfield next week. Cespedes has been sidelined since May 13 due to hip and quad injuries.

Jon Heyman of Fancred reports that the Nationals could revisit a deal for J.T. Realmuto.

The Nationals reportedly attempted to acquire Realmuto this winter, but the Marlins understandably had a higher price tag for the 27-year-old backstop than the other components they sold off before the season started. Realmuto has pushed his value up even more because of his strong 2018 campaign, posting a .902 OPS with 12 homers and 45 RBI while being named an All-Star for the first time. Heyman mentions that the Nationals might even be willing to include Victor Robles to procure his services; a player widely believed to be untouchable because of his offensive and defensive upside. Because Realmuto isn't a free agent until 2021, it wouldn't make sense for the Marlins to give him up without getting a star prospect like Robles back in return.

Trevor Story went 1-for-4 with a game-winning solo homer in the bottom of the ninth inning in Sunday's 4-3 victory against the Mariners.

The walk-off homer was the first of Story's career, and he extended his hitting streak to 10 games with the late-game heroics to tie a career long. Story wraps up the first half slashing .292/.353/.557 with 20 homers and 68 RBI. He is second behind Nolan Arenado for the team lead in homers, and tied with the hot corner man for the team lead in RBI. The duo is also tied for sixth in the majors in RBI.
