Tigers not strongly confident they can sign SP David Price
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:25 pm ET) The Tigers are not particularly confident that they will be able to sign ace left-hander David Price, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman is reporting. Price could be destined for free agency after this season.

Detroit is 9-1 when Price starts this year despite his occasional meltdowns. But its front office is concerned that he will want to test the market and top the contract earned by Max Scherzer, who left the Tigers after last season to join Washington. Scherzer earned $210 million after turning down the Detroit offer of $144 million.

Price, however, is considered more likely to remain where he is comfortable than a guy who is seeking maximum dollar.

He has seven quality starts and another in which he pitched shutout ball for 5 2/3 innings. But two terrible outings has resulted in a still-strong 2.97 ERA.


Nationals' Anthony Rendon could be 7-10 away from returning
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:23 pm ET) Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon is believed to be 7-10 days away from returning, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reported Friday. He began playing in extended spring games Wednesday.

Rendon has been on the disabled list all season recovering from knee and oblique injuries.


Scout: Mets SP prospect Steven Matz is 'really good'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:11 pm ET) Mets starting pitcher prospect Steven Matz continues to impress in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League. He is 6-2 with a 1.99 ERA and 1.05 WHIP through 10 outings (nine starts).

"He's really good," an AL scout told CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. "He has a slower curveball that works in the minors, so he may need to complement that with a slider. But he has deception with his fastball."


Exec: Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes won't skip free agency
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:11 pm ET) There is no possibility that Tigers slugger Yoenis Cespedes will eschew free agency to sign early with Detroit, an executive of one of his former teams told CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

"He's a businessman," the source said.

The Tigers, however, like Cespedes and plan to keep him in Detroit. He has been steady and productive this year to the tune of a .285/.320/.478 slash line and 27 RBI.


Rivals teams prefer Mets' Bartolo Colon over Dillon Gee
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:08 pm ET) The Mets are still keeping starting pitcher Dillon Gee on the trade market, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. However, his injury history limits his value.

Also, rival teams seem to prefer acquiring veteran Bartolo Colon.

"He takes the ball every fifth day and throws strikes," a rival executive said of Colon.


Yasiel Puig eyeing return on homestand, Dodgers not as optimistic
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:00 pm ET) Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig, who is on the disabled list with a hamstring injury, will soon be at the team's spring complex in Arizona to continue his rehab, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Puig hopes to come off the DL and begin playing in games again when the Dodgers come off their road trip next week. The team opens a seven-game homestand June 4 vs. St. Louis.

However, the team doesn't seem as optimistic about Puig's timetable and won't put a timeframe on his return.


Orioles shut door on long-term deal with SP Chris Tillman
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:59 am ET) The window might be shut tight permanently on any possibility that the Orioles and starting pitcher Chris Tillman come to a long-term agreement, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman is reporting.

The two sides never came close to hammering out a contract. And Tillman seems to be wiping out any opportunity with his performance on the mound. He opened the season as the ace but hasn't pitched like one.

Tillman is 2-6 with a 5.59 ERA and has walked 25 in 48 1/3 innings. He has lost his last five decisions, though his last start against Houston was arguably his best of the year.


Trade market limited for Orioles OF Alejandro De Aza
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:51 am ET) The trade market for fading Orioles outfielder Alejandro De Aza is limited, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman has reported. Even the Angels, who would appear to be an ideal fit, are not interested.

De Aza was designated for assignment Wednesday after a miserable start to this season in which he compiled a slash line of .214/.277/.359. He has been especially unproductive recently with one hit in his last 14 at-bats.


Scouts anticipate Dodgers' Hector Olivera will be big star in majors
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:45 am ET) Scouts who have seen prospect Hector Olivera believe he is going to be a big star, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

"He's a terrific hitter," one scout said.

The Cuban slugger signed a six-year, $62.5 million deal with the Dodgers in mid-May. The 29-year-old Olivera had a .323/.407/.505/.912 slash line over 10 seasons in Cuba. He had 96 home runs and 433 RBI in 642 career games.


Cody Asche back with Phillies after playing in LF at Triple-A
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:41 am ET) The Phillies recalled outfield/third baseman Cody Asche from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday.

Asche was sent to the minors on May 11 to work in the outfield. He hit .295 with one home run, three doubles, three RBI, six walks and nine strikeouts in 15 games. He played all 15 games in left field.
