Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Cubs and Yu Darvish have come to an agreement on a six-year, $126 million contract.

The deal is pending a physical and could run as high as $150 million with incentives. Finally, into the second week of February, there's a resolution to the top remaining name on the free agent market, which will hopefully allow for the other dominoes to fall into place, Darvish joins a stacked rotation that already boasts Jon Lester, Jose Quintana, Kyle Hendricks and Tyler Chatwood.

Lorenzo Cain (intercostal) is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Reds.

Cain was forced to leave Tuesday's game against the Reds after the muscle stiffened up on him. Christian Yelich will start in center field and Domingo Santana will patrol right field. Cain should be considered day-to-day, with a chance to return to the lineup on Friday against the Pirates.

Trevor Bauer (leg) will be activated from the disabled list Friday and start the Indians' series opener against the Red Sox.

Indians manager Terry Francona made the announcement Wednesday, adding that Bauer will probably only go a couple innings in his first start since fracturing his right fibula back on August 11. Shane Bieber will piggyback with him in that game. Bauer could get up to four or five innings next week and be might be something close to full strength leading into the American League Division Series. This is obviously a great development for the Tribe.

Michael Kopech underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery on Tuesday.

The surgery was performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles. Kopech will miss the entire 2019 season, but he should be 100 percent leading into the start of spring training in 2020. The 22-year-old top pitching prospect registered a 5.02 ERA and 15/2 K/BB ratio over his first 14 1/3 major league innings (four starts) in 2018.

Freeman opened the afternoon's scoring with a two-run shot off Cardinals starter Jack Flaherty in the bottom of the fourth inning and then added an RBI single in the bottom of the fifth. The star first baseman now has 13 three-hit performances this season, and he's notched at least two hits in seven of his last 11 games. His batting line for the year is up to .311/.390/.509.

Mets manager Mickey Callaway confirmed Wednesday that Zack Wheeler has been shut down for the season.

It's a workload-based decision, as Wheeler has pitched 187 1/3 innings this season between the minors and majors after totaling just 87 1/3 frames from 2015-2017 due to arm injuries. The right-hander showed very well in his age-28 campaign, delivering a 3.31 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 8.8 K/9 across 29 starts for the Mets. He'll be eligible for salary arbitration for the final time this winter.

Eddie Rosario is headed back to Minneapolis for an MRI on his right quad.

Rosario aggravated a lingering quad injury while trying to chase down a ball in the gap Monday night in Detroit. It's very likely that we've seen the last of the 26-year-old outfielder this season, no matter what the MRI shows. After a relatively sluggish second half, he finishes with a .288/.323/.479 batting line, 24 home runs, 77 RBI, eight stolen bases, and 87 runs scored in 138 games.
