Twins signed LHP Zach Duke to a one-year contract.

The deal was agreed to on Christmas day and then finalized on Tuesday evening after the veteran reliever passed his physical. It's believed to be worth around $2 million. Duke returned last July from Tommy John and flexor tendon surgeries and posted a 3.93 ERA and 1.036 WHIP over 18 1/3 innings with the Cardinals. He'll operate as a lefty specialist for Minnesota in 2018.

Reds placed OF Scott Schebler on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to July 15, with an AC sprain in his right shoulder.

Schebler hurt his shoulder last Saturday when he banged against the outfield wall in St. Louis while making a catch on a Yadier Molina fly ball. AC shoulder sprains can sometimes take over a month to recover from, though the severity of this particular one is currently unclear. Schebler holds a respectable .821 OPS with 12 home runs, 37 RBI, three stolen bases, and 42 runs scored in 76 games this season for a better-than-expected Reds team. Adam Duvall and Jesse Winker will be everyday players to open the second half in Cincinnati.

Cardinals placed RHP Miles Mikolas on the paternity leave list.

Mikolas missed the All-Star Game to be with his pregnant wife in Jupiter, Florida and he won't return in time for the Cardinals' first game out of the break on Thursday at Wrigley Field. But it's likely that he will make a start at some point during that five-game set against the rival Cubs -- maybe during Saturday's doubleheader. The 29-year-old right-hander went 10-3 with a 2.79 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, and 83/20 K/BB ratio over 119 1/3 innings in the first half.

Major League Baseball announced Wednesday that Josh Hader will not be suspended for his past racist and homophobic tweets.

That ugly Twitter history was uncovered as Hader was pitching in the eighth inning of Tuesday night's All-Star Game. Most of the tweets were sent when Hader was 17 years old (in 2011-2012) and he apologized in the National League clubhouse after the game, telling a scrum of reporters that he was "ready for any consequences" that might come. Here is the statement from MLB: "During last night's game we became aware of Mr. Hader's unacceptable social media comments in years past and have since been in communication with the Brewers regarding our shared concerns. After the game, Mr. Hader took the necessary step of expressing remorse for his highly offensive and hurtful language, which fails to represent the values of our game and our expectations for all of those who are part of it. The Office of the Commissioner will require sensitivity training for Mr. Hader and participation in MLB's diversity and inclusion initiatives."

Yoenis Cespedes (hip) is starting at first base in a minor league rehab game Wednesday.

Mets manager Mickey Callaway said last week that Cespedes would return as the team's starting left fielder, but the 32-year-old has gotten in some work at first base while rehabbing his hip and quad injuries, and now he'll play his first live game there in the Gulf Coast League. It sounds like Cespedes could get some run at the position for the Mets in the second half. He's on track to be activated Friday before the team's weekend series at Yankee Stadium and will likely DH during that three-game set.

Alex Bregman belted a go-ahead solo homer in the top of the 10th inning Tuesday as the American League beat the National League 8-6 in the 2018 MLB All-Star Game in Washington, D.C.

Reds second baseman Scooter Gennett tied things up in the bottom of the ninth with a two-run homer off Mariners closer Edwin Diaz, but Bregman and the American League All-Stars quickly got revenge, plating three runs off Dodgers starter Ross Stripling in the first frame of extras to seal the deal. Bregman and his Astros teammate George Springer went back-to-back to lead off the top of the 10th and then Jean Segura and Mitch Moreland both singled, with Segura eventually being driven in on a sacrifice fly for the AL's eighth run of the affair. There were 10 total home runs hit on the night, a new All-Star Game record. The previous record was six. Bregman was named the MVP.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic and FOX reports that Manny Machado will indeed be traded to the Dodgers.

Rosenthal interviewed Machado during the sixth inning of Tuesday night's All-Star Game and the 26-year-old superstar spoke about the Orioles in the past tense while acknowledging that he hadn't heard anything official. Moments later, Rosenthal wrote on Twitter that the trade to the Dodgers is "happening." MLB discourages teams from making big announcements on the day of the Midsummer Classic, and that's probably the only thing that is keeping the full trade agreement under wraps. 21-year-old outfield prospect Yusniel Diaz is expected to be part of the O's return package. We haven't heard word about any other names that might be included. Look for this deal to be made official on Wednesday.

Wilson Ramos (hamstring) will open the second half of the season on the disabled list.

Ramos suffered a left hamstring strain on Saturday against the Twins and won't be ready when play resumes after the All-Star break. The move can be made retroactive to July 15, which means Ramos would be first eligible to return next Wednesday, July 25. The 30-year-old catcher is one of the biggest trade chips for the Rays with the July 31 non-waiver deadline fast approaching.

Andrew Miller (knee) pitched a hitless inning in his rehab debut Tuesday at Triple-A Columbus.

Miller struck out two of the three batters he faced and needed just 12 pitches to record a 1-2-3 frame against the Triple-A affiliate of the Phillies. The 33-year-old left-hander figures to make one or two more appearances at the Triple-A level before returning to the Indians' bullpen shortly after the All-Star break. He has been out since May 26 with a right knee injury.
Jul 17 - 4:54 PM

Stephen Strasburg (shoulder) will return to the Nationals' rotation Friday against the Braves.

Strasburg allowed just one earned run over nine innings on his two-start minor league rehab assignment with High-A Potomac, tallying 12 strikeouts against one walk. And he made it up to 82 pitches in his last outing there Sunday, so there shouldn't be any limitations on the 29-year-old right-hander in his first start back Friday versus Atlanta. Strasburg has been sidelined since June 10 due to inflammation in his throwing shoulder.
Jul 17 - 4:49 PM

Yoenis Cespedes (hip) went 1-for-4 with a single and played seven innings in left field Tuesday while playing for the rookie-level Gulf Coast League Mets.

Cespedes hit two home runs in a simulated game on Monday, but this was his first real game action since May 13. Progress with his hip and quad has been slow, but the veteran slugger appears on track to rejoin the Mets when the second half of the season begins Friday against the Yankees in Yankee Stadium. The timing makes sense, as Cespedes can be eased back in as the designated hitter.

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports that the Indians are among the teams interested in Padres closer Brad Hand.

It's not a big surprise to see the Indians are looking for bullpen help, as their relievers rank 29th in the majors with 5.28 ERA. Still, the asking price will be considerable. Hand is owed $13.5 million over the next two years, with a $10 million club option for 2021. The southpaw has compiled 24 saves for the Padres this season while posting a 3.05 ERA and 65/15 K/BB ratio over 44 1/3 innings. There would be value beyond this season for the Indians with Andrew Miller and Cody Allen due to hit free agency this winter.
