Although Tigers avoided arbitration with Max Scherzer Friday, GM Dave Dombrowski confirms team will still explore a long-term deal with Scherzer. 

Scherzer's deal is for about $15.5 million for 2014 so it would be wise for the Tigers to pay Scherzer now versus waiting for him to have another dominating season thereby pushing his price tag even higher.ANALYST: Ray Flowers

Jay Bruce is not in the Reds lineup on Friday.

We're not sure what this means quite yet. The Reds could be playing it safe in case they decide to trade their right fielder. Also Bruce's head probably isn't much into baseball right now with all the rumors swirling around his name. Stay tuned for more news.  Analysis: Brian Rothstein

Update: Titans starting nose tackle Sammie Hill said he’ll likely sit out the first week or two of training camp due to the sprained knee he suffered in offseason workouts.

Hill suffered the knee sprain back in May, but still isn't healthy enough to be on the field. Tennessee had a terrible run defense last year and it should be just as bad this season. Hill was one of the worst defensive tackles in 2014.  Analysis: Brian Rothstein

Miguel Cabrera (calf) will do some light agility work on Friday.

Miggy is expected back around the 15th of August, but the Tigers have already decided to sell this year. It's possible they could make a late push once their best player is back on the field, but Detroit's offense isn't the problem.  Analysis: Brian Rothstein

Bears CB Tim Jennings doesn't expect any discipline from the NFL from his court case in Georgia.

Jennings is likely correct because he didn't plead guilty to the DWI, but to reckless driving instead. It would be surprising to see Jennings get punished, but Roger Goodell's punishment system is so arbitrary nobody really knows.  Analysis: Brian Rothstein

Rays LHP Drew Smyly (shoulder) will make his second rehab start Friday Class-A Charlotte.

Smyly is working his way back from a partial labrum tear. He was beaten up in his first rehab start to the tune of four runs over 2 1/3 innings. We don't really see this experiment to not have surgery ending well.  Analysis: Brian Rothstein

James Loney is not in the Rays lineup on Friday.

Just a day off for Loney against a left-hander. Logan Forsythe will bat cleanup and play first base in his place.  Analysis: Brian Rothstein

Jose Ureña has been recalled from Triple-A New Orleans.

Urena will take Dan Haren's place in the Marlins rotation. In seven starts for Miami he's posted a 4.04 ERA and 1.42 WHIP, with a 19/17 strikeout to walk ratio. He's not a great fantasy option. Analysis: Brian Rothstein

Donovan Solano has been reinstated from the paternity list.

Solano returns to the club and will continue to be used as a pinch-hitter off the bench. He has just nine hits in 62 at-bats. Ignore him.  Analysis: Brian Rothstein

Orioles recall RHP Mychal Givens from Double-A Bowie.

Givens will take Bud Norris' spot on the active roster. The 25-year-old is a little old to still be at the Double-A level, but has 1.79 ERA in the minors.  Analysis: Brian Rothstein

Garrett Jones has been designated for assignment.

The Yankees needed to make room for Dustin Ackley. Jones batted just .215 with five home runs and 17 RBI in 144 at-bats. This might be the end of the road for the 34-year-old.  Analysis: Brian Rothstein

Blue Jays acquire OF Ben Revere from the Phillies, pending medical reviews.

The Blue Jays remain incredibly busy. Rever gives them a legitiamte lead off option so they no longer have to have Troy Tulowitzki in that role. Revere will play left field and has the chance to score a boatload of runs at the top of Toronto's dynamic lineup.  Analysis: Brian Rothstein
