    JON HEYMAN

    - Our MLB insider writes that the Red Sox are unlikely to sign former ace Jon Lester this offseason. Heyman names the Cubs and Yankees as early contenders to land the free-agent-to-be.

    (Link http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/writer/...likely-players)

    INJURY UPDATES

    - Angels: RHP Garrett Richards suffered a left knee patellar injury on Wednesday night. Early indications are that it's a serious injury.

    - Cardinals: C Yadier Molina (thumb surgery) was able to take some swings on Wednesday (via R.B. Fallstrom on Twitter). Molina still needs to progress to a likely minor-league rehab assignment, but barring setback he could be activated before the middle of September.

    - Dodgers: RHP Zack Greinke will have his next start pushed back from Thursday to Saturday because of elbow irritation. He's not going on the DL, at least right now. (Ken Gurnick, MLB.com)

    - Giants: C Hector Sanchez could be lost for the remainder of the season after suffering a second concussion. (Andrew Baggarly, CSN Bay Area)

    - Indians: 1B Nick Swisher will undergo season-ending surgery on both knees.

    - Pirates: RHP Gerrit Cole pitched well in his first start since going on the DL with a lat injury.

    - Rays: After almost three months, the Rays have activated OF Wil Myers (wrist) from the 60-day DL.

    - Rockies: OF Carlos Gonzalez might not be fully ready for the start of spring training after undergoing knee surgery on Monday. (Thomas Harding, MLB.com)

    - Yankees: RHP Masahiro Tanaka (elbow) threw 35 pitches from a bullpen mound on Wednesday. Included in his throwing session were breaking balls and splitters ... OF Carlos Beltran is still having soreness in his right elbow and will miss Thursday's game. How well he responds to a cortisone shot will determine whether he's able to play Friday. (Bryan Hoch, MLB.com)

    RUMORS, SPECULATION, NEWS, ETC.

    - Curt Schilling: Announced that he's been battling mouth cancer, which he attributes to his using tobacco in the past. Schilling's cancer is currently in remission.

    - Cubs: SS Starlin Castro has left the team to deal with what manager Rick Renteria termed a "family tragedy." As CSN Chicago's Patrick Mooney writes, Castro is expected to go on the bereavement list.

    - Cubs, Giants: After an upheld protest by the Giants, they'll resume their weather-shortened game with the Cubs on Thursday afternooon.

    - Padres: Reinstated OF Cameron Maybin from the restricted list. Maybin finished serving a 25-game suspension for failing a test for amphetamines. (Dennis Lin via Twitter)

    Does anyone else think it's absolutely ridiculous that the Yankees aren't getting TJS out of the way for Tanaka now? The writing is on the wall and they're messing around like they need him for a playoff run or something. It's going to end up costing them another full year of that contract he's on with the way they're handling it.

    He'll tear it eating soba or petting his poodle in the offseason and be lost for the 2015 season.

    I agree. I kind of feel bad for Tanaka.

    Dr. Andrews is strongly against the surgery unless 100% necessary.

    And then. He made them pancakes.

    It appears the Cubs are out on Castillo. Supposedly from the news report I read, the five finalists are the Yankees, Phillies, Giants, Red Sox and Tigers with Detroit and Boston the two favorites.

    Hovah doing his best Scott Boras impression. At this point the Red Sox are bidding against the Tigers perceived interest legit or not.

    that truly is crazy - i'd imagine one will be gone in the offseason but for now that's a 'good' problem to have as you can just send bradley down and re-focus him


    as for castillo - if he hits either his mccutchen or gardner ceilings, the deal isn't that bad, if he doesn't, that's an awful deal 2 years in.
