According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the Reds and Giants continue to engage trade discussions involving Billy Hamilton.

These talks heated up at the Winter Meetings, but the final word from Orlando -- via Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports -- was that the two sides could not find a match. Maybe something will change as more dominos fall in the trade and free agent markets. Hamilton holds a weak .248/.298/.334 career batting line at the major league level, but he's a strong defensive center fielder and a game-changer on the basepaths. The 27-year-old is under contractual control through 2019.

Mariners placed LHP James Paxton on the 10-day disabled list with a left forearm contusion.

Paxton suffered the injury during his start Tuesday night against the Athletics when he got hit on the throwing arm by a Jed Lowrie line drive in the bottom of the first inning. He's expected to miss at least one turn in the rotation, but the end result of that frightening incident obviously could have been much worse. Felix Hernandez figures to return to a starting role in Paxton's absence.

Dee Gordon is starting in center field on Wednesday, with Robinson Cano playing second base.

It'll be Gordon's first start in center since May 16. He moved to second base after Cano got hit with an 80-game PED suspension, but with Cano now back in the fold Mariners manager Scott Servais is going to do a little more mixing and matching. Gordon is batting eighth Wednesday versus Athletics left-hander Brett Anderson. Cano will hit second.

Starling Marte is out of the Pirates' starting lineup Wednesday due to illness.

Adam Frazier will start in center field and bat second against Twins right-hander Jose Berrios, with Corey Dickerson in left field and batting leadoff. Elias Diaz is serving as the Pirates' designated hitter at Target Field.

Wilson Ramos (hamstring) will be activated off the disabled list Wednesday.

Ramos arrived in Philadelphia on Wednesday morning and should make his Phillies debut as the starting catcher in Wednesday night's series finale against the Red Sox. He went 4-for-9 with three doubles in three minor league rehab games at High-A Clearwater. The 30-year-old was acquired from the Rays on July 31 for a player to be named later.

Mike Trout's brother-in-law, former minor league pitcher Aaron Cox, passed away on Wednesday morning.

Cox was only 24 years old and had just retired from professional baseball earlier this summer. Trout, who's currently on the disabled list with wrist inflammation, left the Angels on Tuesday and presumably won't return to the club for at least another couple of days while he and his extended family cope with this tragedy.

Brandon Morrow (biceps) is scheduled to resume throwing off a mound this weekend.

Morrow has been sidelined since the All-Star break due to discomfort in his lower right biceps and there is currently no timetable for his return to the Cubs' bullpen, though a successful mound workout would obviously be a significant step in the right direction. "It’s just kind of a deep thing that’s just sticking around. I can’t put my finger on it," Morrow said Tuesday. "I think the muscle is healed though. So throwing around some discomfort is going to be OK. I’m going to see if it’s good when I continue to stretch it out." Pedro Strop has been serving as the Cubs' primary closer in Morrow's absence.

Michael Wacha (oblique) could begin a minor league rehab assignment after throwing one more bullpen session.

That bullpen workout will either come Wednesday or Thursday, which means the rehab assignment might start next week. Wacha has been on the shelf since June 21 with a left oblique strain, so he'll probably need at least two outings on the farm to get properly stretched back out. He took part in fielding and batting practice Tuesday without issue. The 27-year-old right-hander held a sharp 8-2 record, 3.20 ERA, and 71 strikeouts through 64 1/3 innings (15 starts) this season with the Cardinals.

Justin Upton went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and three RBI to lead the Angels to a 7-3 win over the Padres on Tuesday.

Upton clobbered a mammoth 435-foot two-run blast, his 26th long-ball of the year, off Padres starter Brett Kennedy in the fifth inning and tacked on an RBI single against reliever Robert Stock in the seventh. It was another monster night for the 30-year-old veteran outfielder, who homered for the second consecutive contest, and continues to haunt his former organization. A notoriously streaky hitter, he's on quite a tear lately, going deep five times in seven games since August 7. He's hitting .267/.352/.481 with 67 runs scored, 73 RBI, and six stolen bases in 505 total plate appearances this season.

Tommy Pham (foot) is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment Wednesday with Low-A Hudson Valley.

And it sounds like he might only need a couple of minor league rehab games before returning to the Rays' active roster, possibly sometime this weekend. "He feels really good," manager Kevin Cash said Tuesday. "Hopefully a quick turnaround." Pham, who was acquired from the Cardinals on July 31, suffered a fractured right foot in just his second game with Tampa Bay.
Aug 15 - 1:17 AM

Yasiel Puig was ejected from Tuesday night's game against the Giants after shoving catcher Nick Hundley.

Hundley began chirping at Puig after a foul tip in the bottom of the seventh inning and the two went face-to-face in front of home plate before Puig shoved Hundley twice and then took a swipe at his mask as both benches cleared. Hundley also got tossed. Puig could be facing a suspension for initiating the physical contact.
Aug 15 - 12:30 AM

Kolten Wong went 3-for-3 with a two-RBI double and a solo home run in the Cardinals' win over the Nationals on Tuesday.

Wong pulled a two-RBI double down the right-field line in the fourth inning and later added a towering solo home run that just cleared the wall in right. He also had a single and a walk, reaching base in all four plate appearances on the night. Wong is batting .341 since the beginning of July, but he has just two homers and two steals over that span. He just doesn't provide much category juice and remains stuck at the bottom of the Cards' batting order.
