Reds signed RHP David Hernandez to a two-year, $5 million contract.

Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reported the contract details. Hernandez pitched with the Diamondbacks and Angels last season while posting a quality 3.11 ERA and 52/9 K/BB ratio over 55 innings. The 32-year-old will function as a bridge to closer Raisel Iglesias.

Brandon Nimmo left Thursday's game against the Phillies with a left finger injury.

The injury occurred in the third inning when Ranger Suarez's 90 mph fastball struck Nimmo's left finger while also making contact with his bat. He grounded out on the play, which ended his streak of reaching base in 10 straight plate appearances. Jose Bautista came on to replace Nimmo in right field.

MLB suspended Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig two games for "fighting and inciting a bench-clearing incident" Tuesday against the Giants.

He had words with Nick Hundley during his at-bat in the seventh inning and later shoved the Giants catcher, leading to a bench-clearing brawl as both players were ejected. The league didn't suspend Hundley, though he has been fined for his role in Tuesday's melee. Puig is appealing the ban and will be available for the Dodgers' next game Friday against Seattle.

Charlie Blackmon is not in the Rockies' lineup Thursday against the Braves.

Blackmon has had a rough week, going 3-for-23 with six strikeouts over his last six games while seeing his average dip from .281 to .273. He'll get a night off to recharge the batteries while David Dahl fills in at center field. Dahl will hit leadoff against Julio Teheran in Thursday night's opener.

Rangers activated OF Nomar Mazara from the 10-day disabled list.

Mazara missed a month of action with a sprained right thumb. He returns Thursday to a solid .272/.332/.450 batting line with 15 home runs and 58 RBI in 91 games. Willie Calhoun has been optioned to Triple-A Round Rock in a corresponding 25-man roster move.

Matt Carpenter (hand) is starting at first base and batting leadoff Thursday night against the Nationals.

Carpenter was pulled from Wednesday night's win over Washington after taking a pitch off his right hand, but tests came back clean and he's back in there Thursday. The 32-year-old is a legitimate MVP candidate.

Starling Marte (illness) is back in the Pirates' starting lineup Thursday night against the Cubs.

Marte sat out of Wednesday's series finale against the Twins due to a minor illness. He is starting in center field and batting second Thursday versus Jon Lester.

Ronald Acuna (elbow) is in the Braves' starting lineup on Thursday night against the Rockies.

The rookie phenom will start in left field and bat leadoff despite exiting Wednesday's game shortly after taking a pitch off his left elbow. X-rays and a CT scan both came back negative. Acuna's five-game home run streak is still alive because his only plate appearance Wednesday resulted in that first-pitch HBP.

Joe Ross (elbow) is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday night with High-A Potomac.

Ross is around 13 months removed from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and could potentially pitch some innings for Washington down the stretch if everything continues to go well. The 25-year-old right-hander holds a 3.95 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and 230/70 K/BB ratio in 255 1/3 career major league frames.

According to MLB.com's Jon Morosi, MLB team executives are expecting Japanese left-hander Yusei Kikuchi to be posted this winter.

Let's note here that there are new posting rules going into effect this offseason. All postings must occur between November 1 and December 5, with a 30-day negotiating window to follow. The posting fee, which goes to the Japanese team the player leaves behind, will be based on the guaranteed value of the player's MLB contract -- 20 percent of the first $25 million, 17.5 percent of the next $25 million, and 15 percent of any amount beyond $50 million. Kikuchi, a 27-year-old right-hander starter who flirted with the idea of signing with a Major League Baseball team as a teenager, has registered a 2.81 ERA and 8.0 K/9 in 984 1/3 professional innings, mostly with the Seibu Lions. Morosi has heard from MLB scouts that his ceiling is that of a No. 2 starter.

Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports hears that Adam Jones has cleared revocable trade waivers.

That means he is eligible to be traded to any team, but Jones has stated a desire to remain in Baltimore through the end of the season and his 10-and-5 rights allow him to veto any potential deal. There was real interest from the Phillies at the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline -- Jones apparently even had conversations with members of the Philadelphia front office -- but Heyman says the 33-year-old impending free agent "might be more likely to consider an AL team, where he’d have a chance to DH as well as play the outfield."

Rays activated OF Tommy Pham from the 10-day disabled list.

Pham missed two weeks of action with a small fracture in his right foot -- an injury he sustained in just his second game with Tampa Bay. The 30-year-old outfielder is batting .244/.332/.393 with 14 home runs and 10 stolen bases in 404 plate appearances this season between the Cardinals and Rays. He slashed .306/.411/.520 with 23 homers and 25 steals in 2017. Pham will start in left field and hit cleanup in his return Thursday versus Yankees righty Masahiro Tanaka.
