Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto and 2B Brandon Phillips are both on the disabled list, and general manager Walt Jocketty is trying to add a bat. "I'd like to add a bat," Jocketty said Sunday, July 20.

Tampa Bay Rays 2B Ben Zobrist could be a potential trade target for the Seattle Mariners, according to a Tampa writer. Zobrist's affordable 2015 contract could also keep him with the Rays.

Tampa Bay Rays 2B Ben Zobrist (thumb) is on his way to rejoin the club in Boston, where he'll be activated from the 15-day disabled list. He played nine innings and went 1-for-4 with a hit and a walk Wednesday, May 28, for Single-A Charlotte, and determined he didn't need a second rehab game the following day.
