M. Machado - SS
It is "increasingly likely" that Machado will be traded to the Dodgers in the coming days, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
According to Rosenthal's report, Machado, who is starting at shortstop and hitting seventh in Tuesday's All-Star game, will be headed to Los Angeles, barring a last-minute snag in negotiations and/or medicals. The Orioles have had a top scout sitting on the Dodgers' affiliates in recent days, but it is unclear which prospects are likely to be headed back to Baltimore. For fantasy purposes, this would represent a major upgrade in lineup, a downgrade in home ballpark, and would greatly impact AL-only and NL-only leagues, as Machado would be the season's top FAAB target in NL-only leagues if this deal goes down.

W. Ramos - C
Ramos (hamstring) confirmed Tuesday that he will land on the disabled list, but his overall timetable remains unclear, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Ramos strained his hamstring Saturday and was expected to head to the DL, but a move has still not yet been made. The catcher says his hamstring is feeling better but he'll be out at least a week while on the disabled list (depending on when the move is actually made official).

A. Asher - RP

A. Miller - RP
Miller (knee) tossed a scoreless inning, striking out two, in a rehab appearance for Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday.
Miller has been out since late May with knee inflammation. He's expected to return soon after the All-Star break and appears to be on track to do so, barring setbacks.

S. Strasburg - SP
Strasburg (shoulder) will start Friday against the Braves, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.
Nationals manager Dave Martinez confirmed Strasburg will come off the disabled list to start the first game after the All-Star break. The 29-year-old has been out for over a month with shoulder inflammation. Prior to the injury, he had posted a 3.46 ERA in 80.2 starts, with excellent strikeout (29.1 percent) and walk (5.8 percent) rates.

P. Báez - RP
Baez (biceps) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.
Baez has been out for over a month with biceps tendinitis. If his rehab assignment goes smoothly, he could rejoin the Dodgers immediately following the All-Star break. The 30-year-old had posted a 3.23 ERA in 30.2 innings prior to his injury.

Y. Céspedes - LF
Cespedes (hip) played seven innings in left field in his first rehab game for the GCL Mets on Tuesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Cespedes has been out for over two months with a hip issue. His rehab assignment could be short, as he has a good chance to return Friday for the Mets' first series after the All-Star break. That series is against the Yankees in Yankee Stadium, meaning he could be eased back into major-league action as the team's designated hitter.

J. Machi - RP
Machi signed with the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Atlantic League on Sunday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
The 36-year-old has pitched just 7.2 big-league innings since 2015, all of them coming last season with the Mariners. He has a 3.38 career ERA in 191.2 innings in the majors.
