Player News
Brewers SP Matt Garza mashed again Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:06 am ET) The consistency that had marked the career of Brewers starter Matt Garza has vanished in 2015. The right-hander who managed an ERA between 3.32 and 3.95 for eight consecutive seasons has been simply awful.

He was simply awful Saturday, allowing seven runs on 11 hits in 3 2/3 innings in a lucky no-decision against Cincinnati. He walked one and struck out two.

Garza managed one shutout inning in the pounding. The big blow was a three-run homer by Jay Bruce in a four-run second.

His 5.56 ERA is the second-worst among qualifying National League starters this year. He has yielded a ridiculous 19 runs and 27 hits over his last 13 innings.


Cubs prospect Javier Baez expected to be promoted soon
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2015) Joe Maddon has declared that Cubs premier infield prospect Javier Baez is expected to be promoted at early at Tuesday.

"I would say he would be (here) sooner rather than later," Maddon told ESPN. "There's a lot of things he can do to help you win now."

Like, for instance, hit like he has at Triple-A Iowa. Baez is hitting .316 with 13 home runs and .380 on-base percentage at that level.


Angels SP Garrett Richards strikes out nine in no-decision
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/29/2015) Angels starter Garrett Richards was impressive during his start against the Indians on Saturday.

Richards allowed just three runs on seven hits in seven innings. He showed crisp command as he struck out nine batters without allowing a walk in the no-decision.

Richards (12-10) now has a 3.80 ERA in 161 innings this season. 


Athletics RP Drew Pomeranz fans side in snagging Saturday save
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2015) If Athletics left-hander Drew Pomeranz was seeking to solidify what appears to be his hold on the closer role, he certainly stated one heck of a case with his arm Saturday night.

Pomeranz struck out the side in Arizona for his third save. He finished with a flourish, fanning Jarrod Saltalamacchia on three pitches.

He has thrown 4 2/3 consecutive scoreless innings and whiffed seven in that stretch.


Athletics SP Aaron Brooks bounced back from dud to pitch well
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2015) Athletics right-hander Aaron Brooks was either motivated by his last start or didn't let it affect him at all Saturday in Arizona.

Brooks couldn't have forgotten the Aug. 12 outing in which he allowed eight runs in 1 2/3 innings in Toronto. He certainly rebounded in style by giving up only two runs on eight hits in six innings to keep his team in a game it eventually won. He finished with one walk and four strikeouts.

He blanked the Diamondbacks through four, but an A.J. Pollock single and double play ball resulted in the only two runs scored against him.

His ERA still stands at a rather disturbing 5.47.


Indians SP Corey Kluber strikes out six in no-decision
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/29/2015) Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber recorded six strikeouts during his start against the Angels on Saturday.

Kluber allowed three runs, two of them earned, on five hits in six innings. He gave up three walks and a pair of home runs in the no-decision.

Kluber (8-13) has a 3.41 ERA in 200 1/3 innings this season.


Diamondbacks SP Jhoulys Chacin impressive before demotion
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2015) The Diamondbacks were trying to catch lightning in a bottle by signing retread starter Jhoulys Chacin and sticking him in their rotation.

Consider lightning caught - at least for now.

Chacin managed his second straight strong performance Saturday against Oakland despite being saddled with a no-decision. He yielded just two runs on five hits in seven innings with two walks and six strikeouts.

He was sent to the minors after the game, per AZCentral.com. But he has certainly made an impression.

Only a Stephen Vogt homer in the second inning prevented him from throwing shutout ball. He allowed only three hits the rest of the way.

Chacin has allowed just four earned runs in 13 1/3 innings since joining the starting staff.


Rangers closer Shawn Tolleson remains on roll for 28th save
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2015) Rangers closer Shawn Tolleson didn't become the Rangers closer until late May. But he has certainly made up for lost time.

Tolleson snagged his 28th save in just over three months Saturday against Baltimore. He did have to work out of a bit of a jam, but stranded two baserunners in the ninth.

The right-hander has surrendered a run in only two August appearances. He has 10 saves in the month.


Scuffling Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez falls again Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2015) The fading Orioles are fading to some degree because starter Ubaldo Jimenez has faded away.

He continued to fade Saturday night in Texas. Jimenez again failed to make it through six innings, going 5 2/3 and allowing four runs on eight hits with three walks and three whiffs.

He has just two wins since June 28 as his ERA has skyrocketed from 2.81 to 4.34.

Jimenez gave up three runs in the third on a double by Shin-Soo Choo and blast by Adrian Beltre and another in the sixth on another double, this one off the bat of Bobby Wilson.


Rangers SP Martin Perez good enough to beat Orioles
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2015) Rangers starter Martin Perez blew a lead, got it back and received a boost from the bullpen to earn a win over Baltimore on Saturday night.

Perez gave up three runs on seven hits in 6 1/3 innings to snag his second win of the season. He walked none and whiffed four.

A three-run, four-hit fifth inning that began with a Steve Pearce blast turned a 3-0 lead into a tie. He retired the next five batters, but successive singles in the sixth knocked him out of the game.

Perez has given up just 11 runs over his last 32 2/3 innings and has lowered his ERA to a still-poor 5.15.
