Indians manager Terry Francona will stick with Cody Allen as closer
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(9:18 pm ET) Indians manager Terry Frnacona knows Monday wasn't what he expected from his closer Cody Allen, but he will continue to gut it out with him, according to Cleveland.com.

"The last thing we want is to have chaos at the end of the bullpen," said manager Terry Francona. "That doesn't help anybody."

Allen gave up four runs in the ninth inning Monday with Cleveland up 3-0 after seven scoreless from starter Trevor Bauer.

"Cody is about as trustworthy and dependable as anyone we have," said Francona. "Monday night wasn't a lot of fun, but if there's anybody we believe in, he's right at the top of the list.

"I hope so bad that we have a lead tonight and we can give it back to him. When you believe in somebody that much, some nights hurt. . . I think we believe in him so much, he'll be OK."

Allen is 0-2 this season with an 18.00 ERA and has three saves in four opportunities.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Phillies plan to use all 20 days of Domonic Brown's injury rehab
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8:53 pm ET) The Phillies have moved outfielder Domonic Brown's minor league injury rehab to Triple-A, but Brown won't be back in the big leagues for awhile. 

Brown is rehabbing an inflamed Achilles that has kept him out this season. The team plans to use all 20 days of Brown's rehab, which would take him through next Tuesday. 

"It's kind of up to him when he finds his stride to get hot with the bat," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said, per MLB.com. "I think that would be important for him."

Brown was hitting .200 at Class A at the start of his rehab assigment.


Giants to go with Ryan Vogelsong or Yusmeiro Petit Thursday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:39 pm ET) Giants manager Bruce Bochy remains on the fence about naming his starting pitcher for Thursday, according to CSN Bay Area.

Bochy wants to see how Tuesday and Wednesday play out before naming his starter, but is expected to choose either Ryan Vogelsong or Yusmeiro Petit for the job. Jake Peavy was the scheduled starter, but has since been placed on the 15-day DL with a back strain.

Vogelsong has made one start this season with a 10.45 ERA in three appearances. Petit has made five appearances this season with a 4.91 ERA in 7 1/3 innings.


Giants C Buster Posey breaks out of normal routine with early BP
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8:32 pm ET) Giants catcher Buster Posey broke out of his normal daily routine with an early round of batting practice prior to Tuesday's game against the Dodgers, reports Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. Posey, who is hitting only .229 to start the season, worked on hitting the opposite field.

"He did some work off a tee today to get a couple things figured out," manager Bruce Bochy said. "You don't see it a lot, but I know Buster is trying. These guys are really trying. That goes with the territory."

Posey has only four hits over his last 24 at-bats. Two of Posey's four hits over that seven-game span are home runs. He has driven in six runs over first 14 games.
