Braves placed RHP Mike Soroka on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to May 14 with a right shoulder strain.

Soroka will be eligible to return from the disabled list on May 24, but shoulder strains often take much longer to recover from. The right-hander gave up five runs -- although only one was earned -- in his last start on May 12, and was pulled after 4 2/3 innings against the Marlins. Max Fried will take Soroka's place on the 25-man roster and rotation.

Reds acquired RHP Sonny Gray and LHP Reiver Sanmartin from the Yankees in exchange for 2B Shed Long and a 2019 competitive balance pick.

Gray has agreed to a three-year, $30.5 million contract extension, as well, with the Reds holding a $12 million club option for 2023. He will be reunited with his college pitching coach, Derek Johnson, who joined new manager David Bell's staff earlier this offseason. Getting out of Yankee Stadium and moving to the National League is good news for Gray, but he'll have to pitch in another bandbox in Great American Ball Park. Mixed leaguers should probably take a wait-and-see approach with him.

Yadier Molina said Monday that his surgically-repaired left knee is at about 50 percent and he probably won't play in spring training game until mid-March.

Molina also revealed that his knee bothered him for the bulk of last season, but he played through it before going under the knife in mid-December. It's not the news you want to hear about a 36-year-old catcher, but Molina has been incredibly durable considering the number of innings he catches, so it's hard to doubt him at this point. Still, it's something for fantasy owners to consider.

Ketel Marte will move to center field for the Diamondbacks this season.

The D-backs plan to play new acquisition Wilmer Flores primarily at second base, allowing them to move Marte to center field as had been rumored. Marte has only started seven games in center in his pro career, with five of them coming in 2017 at Triple-A. With Marte moving to the outfield, Jarrod Dyson will slide back into a fourth outfielder role.

Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic writes that the Cubs have "bandied about the idea of trading Ben Zobrist this offseason."

Zobrist is set to play an integral role for the Cubs again in 2019, particularly early on in the season while Addison Russell serves the remainder of his suspension. That said, the team has evidently considered trading him for bullpen help and payroll space. However, it does not appear at this point that any deal involving Zobrist is close. The veteran utility player will turn 38 in May and is slated for free agency after the upcoming season. He'll earn $12.5 million in 2019.

Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports reports that the Dodgers, Giants, Angels, Phillies and Rays are among the teams pursuing Josh Harrison.

The Rangers have also been previously connected to Harrison. The Pirates used Harrison almost exclusively at second base last season, but his ability to play all over the field makes him a fit on just about any club. The 31-year-old batted an uninspiring .250/.293/.363 over 97 games in 2018.

Angels signed RHP Cody Allen to a one-year, $8.5 million contract.

He can earn an additional $2.5 million in games finished incentives. Allen didn't have an ideal walk year with a 4.70 ERA for the Indians, but he misses a lot of bats and has a good shot at a bounce-back season if he can stay healthy. He's in line to serve as the Angels' closer.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Dodgers have been discussing Joc Pederson in possible trades, and the White Sox are "one of clubs in those conversations."

Jason Kinander of FanSided was first to report that the two sides were talking. The White Sox really need outfield help, so it's not a surprise that they would have some interest in Pederson. It's also not a surprise that the Dodgers are fielding offers for the outfielder, as they appear interested in balancing out their left-handed-heavy lineup. Rosenthal adds that it's "not known if talks are advanced to point where teams are close to a deal." Pederson is under team control through 2020.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Dodgers are "in discussions" with A.J. Pollock.

It's a follow-up report from Rosenthal, who had noted previously that the Dodgers had interest in the free agent outfielder. Pollock would provide the Dodgers with a right-handed bat to add to a left-handed-heavy lineup and allow them to play Cody Bellinger more at first base if that's what they'd prefer. While Pollock's injury history is a concern, Rosenthal correctly notes that the Dodgers could deal with his absence more easily than most clubs due to their depth and versatility.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Twins have reached a contract agreement with free agent left-hander Martin Perez.

According to Rosenthal, it's a one-year major league deal that includes a club option for a second season. No word yet on the financials. Perez hit the open market after the Rangers declined his $7.5 million option in December. The 27-year-old hurler registered a troublesome 6.22 ERA, 1.78 WHIP and 52/36 K/BB ratio across 85 1/3 innings for the Rangers in 2018.

Jon Heyman of Fancred reports that the Giants have been gauging trade interest in third baseman Evan Longoria.

Longoria has four years and $72.5 million remaining on his contract with the Giants, in addition to a $2 million assignment bonus if he's traded, so the Giants may have to contribute significant cash if they're hoping to move him. The 33-year-old hit .244/.281/.413 with 16 homers and 54 RBI over 125 games in his first season with the Giants.

Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports that Chris Sale said his shoulder is feeling healthy again.

Sale spoke at the Red Sox annual fan convention and said "I feel normal again, I’m able to throw free and easy and feel loose and kind of have that whip back. It’s obviously a nice feeling." Sale suffered through an extended bout with left shoulder inflammation last season that cost him two stints on the disabled list. The club was able to nurse him through the season and the playoffs but he wasn't at full strength. The aches and pains limited him to 158 innings but when he was on the mound he was spectacular. He turned in a 2.11 ERA and 0.86 WHIP (both career bests) in 27 starts. He struck out 237 batters, issued just 34 walks and yielded only 11 home runs. He won 12 games against four losses and finished fourth in the AL Cy Young balloting. He has finished in the top six of the Cy Young balloting in each of the last seven seasons but has not yet won the award.
