MLB Trades & Trade Rumors Heating Up

Will Harris (R) Headshot

Harris (shoulder) is expected to be activated for Friday's series opener in Detroit, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Harris had just one rehabilitation outing and apparently that was enough for the Astros. With Dallas Keuchel also returning Friday, Houston is likely to make room on the roster by sending down outfielder Derek Fisher and reliever Michael Feliz to Triple-A Fresno. Harris should resume his role as a high-leverage reliever.

Tyler Skaggs (L) Headshot

Skaggs (oblique) will likely require at least one more rehab start after his outing was cut short by rain Thursday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

His outing was off to a rocky start as Skaggs had allowed three runs over 1.2 innings before a rain delay ended his night early. Skaggs was touched up for five earned runs over his first two outings (7.0 IP) entering Thursday and hadn't gone longer than 4.0 innings in either start. With that, the Angels will likely have Skaggs make another start to further build up his pitch count before bringing him back off the disabled list.

Cheslor Cuthbert (R) Headshot

Cuthbert (wrist) suffered a setback during his rehab assignment this week, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

He had been on pace to be activated from the disabled list by the end of the month, but Cuthbert's recent setback will extend his stay on the DL. Cuthbert had been slashing .212/.350/.394 with one home run during his rehab stint prior to the setback. The Royals figure to have an updated timeline for his return in the coming days.

Paulo Orlando (R) Headshot

Orlando (shin) suffered a setback during his rehab assignment and his timeline for a return has been delayed, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

Both Orlando and Cheslor Cuthbert suffered setbacks this week, which complicates both of their paths back to being activated. Orlando, who is currently on the 60-day disabled list due to a fractured shin, began his rehab assignment last weekend. The team has yet to announce an updated timeline for Orlando, but it appears that a return before early August may be off the table. Look for the Royals to have a further update on Orlando in the coming days.
9:30 pm (EST)
Chris Flexen (R) Headshot

Flexen has been officially recalled ahead of his start Thursday against the Padres.

He's been tabbed as the Mets' scheduled starter since Zack Wheeler (forearm) landed on the disabled list, but the Mets have now officially added him to the roster. Flexen will be making his major league debut after making the leap from Double-A. He posted a sterling 1.66 ERA and a 0.73 WHIP over 48.2 innings at Double-A Binghamton prior to being promoted.
