Replay proposal ready

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — Major League Baseball executive VP Joe Torre has given his instant replay proposal to the executive committee to consider as baseball's brass huddled for two days of meetings.

Commissioner Bud Selig plans to address the media this morning to discuss what is on the table.

"I thought it was very thoughtful and well-done," Selig said Wednesday evening. "We'll discuss it in more detail (today). We haven't even discussed it."

MLB is looking at a vast expansion of video review for the 2014 season and is examining whether all calls other than balls and strikes should be subject to instant replay.

Torre said at the All-Star Game in New York last month that he was fairly confident a new system would be in place for next season.

Selig initially wanted to add trap plays and fair-or-foul calls down the lines for 2013, then decided to proceed cautiously, and the change was put off while more radical options were studied.

MOLINA READY: Cardinals C Yadier Molina expects to be in the lineup today, the first day he's eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list from a right knee strain.

ROYALS ADD INFIELDER: Kansas City acquired Emilio Bonifacio from the Blue Jays for cash or a player to be named, adding depth to a banged-up infield.

A'S: LHP Brett Anderson, who hasn't pitched in a game since April 29 because of a stress fracture in his right foot, is scheduled to throw two innings in relief Saturday for Triple-A Sacramento.

BLUE JAYS: CF Colby Rasmus went on the 15-day disabled list with an oblique strain. OF Kevin Pillar was called up from Triple-A Syracuse.

CARDINALS: LF Matt Holliday was in the lineup after X-rays on sprained right ankle came back negative.

CUBS: RHP Jake Arrieta is set to join the rotation Friday. Arrieta, 27, was acquired July 2 from the Orioles. … RH reliever Matt Guerrier, who went on the 60-day DL last week, will seek a second opinion for a tear in his right forearm flexor mass.

RED SOX: RHP Clay Buchholz, out since June 9 with neck and shoulder ailments, threw 50 pitches during a bullpen session and called it "probably the best day so far" in his recovery.
