- The Royals have agreed to a contract with a middle school right-handed pitcher from Japan.
- We’ve got some more Manny Machado updates.
Sources: Dodgers have stepped up pursuit of a position player and are looking beyond Manny Machado. Have had conversations with Reds about Scooter Gennett, Twins about Brian Dozier and Mets about Asdrubal Cabrera. Dodgers’ versatility allows them to pursue a number of positions.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) July 10, 2018
- Grant Brisbee provides his take on the MLB All-Star rosters.
