The New York Yankees have talked to the Phillies about Marlon Byrd, though no deal is close yet.

It was recently reported that the Phillies had not yet received an "acceptable" offer for any of their players. The 36-year-old is owed $8 million in each of the next two years. He's continued his late-career renaissance into the 2014 season, slashing .273/.321/.482 with 20 home runs, 53 runs, and 60 RBI. Ruben Amaro's current asking price is unknown.

Alex Rios might be dealt before the non-waiver trade deadline Thursday, but the Yankees are not believed to be in on Rios at this time.

Rios is one of the few stars Jon Daniels' front office is willing to move before the deadline. He's got an option for 2015 for $13.5 million and a $1 million dollar buyout.

Phillies have not received acceptable offer for any of their players. 

The Phillies are clearly sellers, and it would be a shame if they weren't able to unload a few of their albatross contracts before the deadline. Cole Hamels is the only piece that is likely to land them more than a B-level prospect at this point, as Cliff Lee's recent struggles have now placed his value in doubt.

Geovany Soto (groin) expects to begin rehabbing Friday with Triple-A Round Rock, and is on track to return to the Rangers on Aug. 8.

Soto suffered a knee injury during the Spring that required surgery and kept him out for the better part of three months. He returned to the Rangers on July 18th and suffered a groin strain just a few days later. He was 4 for his first 11 on the season (.364) with two runs and a rbi.

The Giants released Tyler Colvin after Wednesday's game.

Colvin's Giants career got off to a fine start, but since the calendar turned to July, Colvin has been awful. Over his last 10 games, Colvin is 3-for-18 (.167) with just one run and one rbi. The Giants could be clearing roster space in preparation for some deadline dealings.

Giants release second baseman Dan Uggla.

Well, that was short. Uggla was signed to a minor league deal and promoted just last week. In his short Giants' career he went 0-12 with a walk, a run and six strikeouts.

Jason Heyward (back) will likely return for the weekend series against the Padres.

Heyward left Monday's game with a back issue and apparently it's not serious enough to require significant time on the shelf. He's expected to return this weekend against the Padres in San Diego.

Alex Rios was removed from Wednesday's game in the fourth inning for precautionary reasons after being hit by a pitch in the third inning.

It's understandable he would be removed as a precautionary measure given the fact his name is one of those swirling in trade rumors. Rios was 0 for 1 before exiting.
