Esmil Rogers P TOR 6 Hrs

Esmil Rogers is expected to be called up from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

Rogers was outrighted off the 40-man roster back in May, but the Blue Jays need a fresh arm in their bullpen. The 28-year-old owns a 6.97 ERA over 16 appearances at the major league level this season and figures to pitch in long relief.

A. J. Burnett SP PHI 6 Hrs

According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, Pirates right-hander A.J. Burnett can be traded to the Orioles, Red Sox, Red Sox, Reds, Royals, Mets, Yankees, Pirates, Cardinals, and Nationals without his consent.

Similar to teammate Cliff Lee, Burnett has a 20-team no-trade list. The Pirates and Orioles are two of the teams who have been scouting Burnett recently and the trade list won't be an issue.

John Danks SP CWS 6 Hrs

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees have checked in with the White Sox about the availability of left-hander John Danks.

There's nothing to indicate that the two sides are close to a deal, but Yankees general manager Brian Cashman hasn't made any secret about his desire to add starting pitching. Danks owns a 4.35 ERA and 87/46 K/BB ratio over 124 innings this season, so he's not quite the pitcher he once was. There's still around $34 million remaining on his contract, which runs through 2016. He has a six-team no-trade list, but it's unclear if the Yankees are on it.

Steve Cishek RP MIA 6 Hrs

Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports that Marlins' relievers Steve Cishek and Mike Dunn are being closely watched by scouts.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman has reported that Cishek has been a popular name in recent trade talks, but it's unclear whether the Marlins are willing to move him. However, he's making $3.8 million in his first year of arbitration and won't qualify for free agency until after 2017, so he could fetch a big return. The Marlins would like to add a controllable starting pitcher and/or a second baseman, which would be reasonable requests in a Cishek deal. Dunn making $1.4 million in his first year of arbitration and is under team control through 2016.

Joel Peralta RP TB 7 Hrs

Joel Peralta (virus) is expected to be placed on the disabled list.

Peralta believes that he acquired the chikungunya virus, an illness transferred by mosquitoes in the Caribbean, which is where Peralta spent his All-Star break. He would be placed on the disabled list retroactive to July 13, setting him up to return within a few days assuming he feels up to it. Jeff Beliveau is the most likely replacement on the active roster.

Kyuji Fujikawa RP CHC 8 Hrs

Kyuji Fujikawa (elbow) allowed one run on two hits over one inning Monday in his first rehab appearance with Triple-A Iowa.

Fujikawa, who is currently making his way back from Tommy John surgery, moved his rehab up to Triple-A on Monday after he made six scoreless appearances between rookie ball and Class A Wayne County. He could be ready to join the Cubs' bullpen after a handful of appearances in Triple-A.

Garrett Richards P LAA 9 Hrs

Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said Monday that the club has no plans to temporarily shut down Garrett Richards in order to limit his workload.

Richards is already at 131 1/3 innings, just a tad shy of the 145 innings he threw last season. He has never thrown more than 157 innings in a season before in pro ball, but Dipoto said there haven't been any discussions about giving him a break. "Not at all," said Dipoto. "Garrett has thrown from end to end in a season. His innings have not escalated to the point where they're 200-plus, but Garrett throws the ball as easily as anybody you'll ever see. It's not a violent delivery, it's not a violent package. He maintains velocity pretty easily." Richards is currently on pace for 216 2/3 innings and could pitch more if the Angels play deep into October.

Collin Cowgill OF LAA 9 Hrs

Collin Cowgill (nose) expects to return from the disabled list in a couple of weeks.

Cowgill landed on the disabled list prior to the All-Star break after he was hit by a pitch on July 12 and broke both his nose and his right thumb. He had stitches removed from his nose on Monday and is likely a few days away from swinging a bat.

C. J. Wilson SP LAA 9 Hrs

C.J. Wilson (ankle) is scheduled to throw an "up-and-down" bullpen session on Wednesday.

Wilson felt good after throwing 50 pitches in a bullpen session Monday and will test himself Wednesday in what will essentially amount to a simulated game, as he'll take breaks as if he was pitching separate innings. The southpaw will almost certainly require a minor league rehab assignment, but should be able to return within a couple of weeks.

Ryan Goins 2B/SS TOR 9 Hrs

Ryan Goins is expected to be called up from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

The Blue Jays will also call up top prospect Aaron Sanchez. No word yet on the corresponding roster moves involved. Goins began the year as Toronto's starting second baseman, but he batted just .150/.203/.217 over 24 games before being demoted. Still, he's highly-regarded for his defense and could have value as a backup infielder.
