A look at what’s happening around the majors today:FINAL

SALEAndrew McCutchen was on the verge of becoming a Yankee late Thursday night as New York was close to completing a deal with San Francisco Babe Ruth Jersey , and more players might move on the final day to swing trade waiver deals. The timetable for Aaron Judge’s return from a broken wrist remains uncertain, meaning McCutchen could fill a big hole in the Bronx down the stretch. Among the players who could be traded Friday: Washington closer Ryan Madson has reportedly been claimed by the Dodgers, while Toronto could try to shop Josh Donaldson, Curtis Granderson or Justin Smoak.GETTING CLOSECubs star Kris Bryant is likely to come off the disabled list and join the NL Central leaders this weekend in Philadelphia. The 2016 NL MVP struck out twice Thursday while batting leadoff during a rehab stint at Triple-A Iowa. The third baseman has been out because of shoulder inflammation. Meanwhile, outfielder Jason Heyward left Thursday’s game with tightness in his right hamstring after diving for a line drive. Heyward was able to walk slowly off the field. He’ll be evaluated further but is expected to miss at least a couple of games.WESTWORLDDiamondbacks ace Zack Greinke pitches the second leg of a pivotal four-game series against the NL West-rival Dodgers. Greinke is 2-0 in two starts against Los Angeles this season despite a 4.38 ERA. Hyun-Jin Ryu starts for the Dodgers. He gave up 11 hits in his previous start against San Diego but still pitched two-run ball over 5 2/3 innings in a victory.FAMILIAR FOESWhite Sox rookie Michael Kopech faces Boston for the first time since the Red Sox traded the hard-throwing prospect to Chicago in the Chris Sale deal after the 2016 season. Kopech was selected by Boston in the first round of the 2014 draft.Kopech made his major league debut on Aug. 21 and threw six effective innings at Detroit on Sunday for his first win. Nathan Eovaldi pitches for major league-leading Boston. Eovaldi is 2-2 with a 3.94 ERA in six starts since Tampa Bay traded him to the Red Sox on July 25.FACE OFFClean-shaven Corey Kluber gets the ball for Cleveland against Tyler Glasnow and the Rays. Kluber (16-7, 2.91) gave up five runs in 5 1/3 innings to Kansas City last time out, but perhaps he’ll get a different result after shaving his beard for the first time since Christmas. His wife had wagered he couldn’t go a full season without shaving, but she called off the bet this week when she tired of all that face fuzz. ATLANTA (AP) The Atlanta Braves acquired outfielder Adam Duvall from the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night to bolster their lineup http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-nick-markakis-jersey , especially against left-handers, for a postseason push.Duvall was targeted for a platoon role, starting against left-handers. The move will cut into Ender Inciarte’s playing time.For the Reds, the trade opens the way for full-time roles for corner outfielders Jesse Winker and Scott Schebler while adding three young players.The Braves sent right-handers Lucas Sims and Matt Wisler and outfielder Preston Tucker to Cincinnati. All three spent time in Atlanta this season but were with Triple-A Gwinnett at the time of the trade.The trade was announced following the Braves’ 5-3 win over Miami on Monday night.Duvall, 29, has hit 15 home runs with 61 RBIs but is hitting only .205 this season.Braves general manager Alex Anthopoulos said the Braves plan to start Duvall in left field against left-handers, with rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. moving to center and Inciarte, a Gold Glove Award-winning center fielder Freddie Freeman Jersey , moving to the bench.”We’ve been a good team against left-handers but we can get better and this is a guy who’s under control going forward,” Anthopoulos said.Anthopoulos said Duvall and Inciarte have been told of the outfield plan.”I talked to Ender tonight and he was great,” Anthopoulos said. ”His response was `I just want to get to the playoffs.’ He’s awesome.”Duvall hit 64 homers over the previous two seasons, including 31 in 2017. He was an NL All-Star in 2016.Duvall was also a finalist for the Gold Glove Award in each of the last two seasons.The Braves are only a half-game behind Philadelphia in the race for the NL East. The Reds are last in the NL Central despite a recent surge.”We’re pleased with the performance we’ve seen in the middle of the summer,” said Reds president of baseball operations Dick Williams. ”We’ve been trying to keep an eye on next year but this year is also important. … I think when we looked at next year we saw Winker and Schebler really emerging as corner outfielders that are going to have a lot of success in the big leagues.”Wisler, 25, had a 5.40 ERA in seven games, including three starts http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-nick-markakis-jersey , with Atlanta this season. Sims, 24, had a 7.84 ERA in six relief appearances. Tucker, 28, hit .256 with four homers and 22 RBI in 62 games. Tucker was optioned to Gwinnett on Saturday.—
