Josh Harrison (hamstring) is hoping to return to the Pirates' lineup this weekend.

Harrison had to be lifted from the final game before the All-Star break with a left hamstring injury, but the Pirates are optimistic they could the ailment before it got serious. He'll test out the hamstring with a workout Thursday and hopes to be back in there at some point over the weekend.

Jon Heyman of Fancred reports that the medical holdup with the Manny Machado trade isn't related to Dodgers outfield prospect Yusniel Diaz.

Diaz is the headliner of the deal, so any problem with him probably would've meant the deal falling apart. Since the medical issue is with more of a complementary piece, the two sides still figure to work things out even if it means having to alter the trade a bit. It wouldn't appear to be a slam dunk anymore, though, so it's possible the Phillies and/or Brewers put in a call to see if they can jump back in.

Rays placed C Wilson Ramos on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to July 15, with a left hamstring strain.

Ramos suffered the injury last Saturday and he's expected to be sidelined at least for the remainder of the month. He is one of the Rays' biggest trade chips, but it appears that they might have to wait until August after the non-waiver deadline to deal him. Ramos is hitting an impressive .297/.346/.488 with 14 home runs and 53 RBI this season. Jesus Sucre will receive the bulk of the starts behind the plate while Ramos is out and the club will need to call up another catcher prior to Friday's game.

Yoenis Cespedes (hip) hit a three-run homer and played nine innings at first base Wednesday in a rehab game with the Mets' affiliate in the Gulf Coast League.

Cespedes has now played three straight days on the farm and should be a go for the Mets' first game out of the of the All-Star break on Friday night at Yankee Stadium. He can DH in that three-game set before returning to left field (and maybe trying some first base) next week. The 32-year-old slugger has been on the shelf since May 13 because of hip and quad injuries.

Miles Mikolas (paternity) will start for the Cardinals in Sunday's series finale against the Cubs.

Mikolas skipped his first All-Star Game to be with his wife, who is expecting twins, and he was officially placed on the paternity leave list by the Cardinals on Wednesday. But the 29-year-old right-hander won't wind up missing a turn in the rotation. Carlos Martinez is set to start Thursday's series opener at Wrigley Field, with Jack Flaherty pitching Friday and Luke Weaver and John Gant handling the doubleheader on Saturday. Mikolas will then take the mound on Sunday night.

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.

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."

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.

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.
