Royals SP Kris Medlen goes six innings in fourth rehab start
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:27 pm ET) Royals starting pitcher Kris Medlen (elbow) took the hill Sunday for his fourth start on a rehab assignment. It was his second start with Triple-A Omaha.

Medlen allowed two runs on five hits and one walk in six innings. He struck out two during his first win in four starts. 

The six innings were the most the right-hander has thrown since beginning his rehab assignment June 19. He also threw 81 pitches (50 strikes), which was also the most he has thrown on his rehab assignment.

Medlen still dealt with some control issues Sunday as he hit a batter. It is the fourth batter he has hit in four starts.


Pirates hopeful prospect Jameson Taillon can pitch in September
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:25 pm ET) Pirates premier pitching prospect Jameson Taillon could return to action in September if his recovery from hernia surgery, which he is scheduled to undergo this week, goes smoothly.

"We'll see how the recovery goes," general manager Neal Huntington told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "It is two months-ish. I mean, we have been told it is roughly two months until he is ready to compete."


Rays 1B James Loney hits safely in first three games off DL
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:22 pm ET) So far, so good for Rays first baseman James Loney in his return from a fractured middle left finger, which forced him to miss six weeks. He has hit safely in all three games since he returned to the lineup Friday.

Loney drove in two runs on a single in the first inning Sunday against the Yankees, giving Tampa Bay a 2-0 lead. They won the game 8-1.

He is batting .308 (4 for 13) with three RBI, two runs and two strikeouts since his activation from the disabled list.


Cardinals LF Matt Holliday weighing ASG participation
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:15 pm ET) That invitation Cardinals veteran left fielder Matt Holliday received from the fans to start the All-Star Game? He might just have to reply, "thanks, but no thanks."

Holliday was voted in, but he's still dealing with a quad injury that has kept him sidelined for nearly a month. The news, however, is not all bad.

"It's getting better," he told MLB Network Radio.

Holliday added that he will take the next couple days to decide if he can participate.


D-Backs rookie SS Nick Ahmed batting .313 in last 23 games
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:14 pm ET) Diamondbacks rookie shortstop Nick Ahmed tied a career best with three hits Sunday against the Rockies. He has accomplished the feat twice this season.

Ahmed had two singles and his eighth double this season in the 6-4 loss. He also scored a run.

The rookie middle infielder has been on a nice run offensively since early June. He is batting .313 with a .360 on-base percentage, .475 slugging percentage and .835 OPS in his last 23 games. He has three home runs, four doubles, nine RBI, 11 runs, six walks, eight strikeouts and two stolen bases in that span.


Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma ready to go full tilt Monday night
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:10 pm ET) Hisashi Iwakuma will not be treated with kid gloves when he returns to the mound for the Mariners on Monday night for his first start since April 20.

"That's why we brought him back," Lloyd McLendon told the Tacoma News-Tribune. "I said he's not coming back until he's able to get up and down seven times. He's ready to go."

Whether he will perform significantly better than he did before going down with a strained back muscle is another matter. But McLendon is optimistic based on his velocity.

"He's back up to 91 (mph), which is a good thing," he added. "That makes his split better. He can't pitch at 86 and expect to have some deception on his split."

Iwakuma returns with an 0-1 record and 6.61 ERA, a far cry from his performance over the past three seasons, when he posted a combined 3.07 ERA.


Tigers' McCann getting increased PT again with Avila at first base
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:05 pm ET) Tigers catcher James McCann drew back-to-back starts Saturday and Sunday against the Blue Jays after Alex Avila started in his first game off the disabled list Friday. Avila started at first base the last two games after Miguel Cabrera went on the disabled list.

McCann went 1 for 4 with a triple, one RBI and one strikeout Saturday before going 2 for 3 with one run, one RBI and one walk Sunday. 

He has now hit safely in five straight games, batting .476 (10 for 21) with one double, one triple, two home runs, five RBI, five runs, one walk and three strikeouts.


Nationals C Wilson Ramos dedicates homer to daughter
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:02 pm ET) Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos didn't just blast off for his team Sunday night. His solo home run was a sort-of birthday present for his daughter.

"Soon as I hit the ball, I felt in my bat that ball is gone," he told masnsports.com. "...It made me feel good for this day I hit well. Especially this day, because my daughter have 11 months today. I did today for her. It made me really happy today."

It didn't exactly make Matt Williams sad. He was impressed not just by the home run, but by Ramos' RBI single in the eighth.

"That's vintage Wilson," Williams said. "Man on third, line drive back through the middle. He's got the ability to do that. That's why he hits in the middle of the order, because he's an RBI guy. He's a run producer. He stayed on a first-pitch slider and delivered."

Ramos is on a bit of a roll with five hits in his last 12 at-bats to sweeten his slash line to .266/.294/.411.


Mets SS Ruben Tejada ties season high with three hits
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:58 am ET) Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada tied a season high with three hits during an 8-0 win Sunday against the Dodgers. He has totaled three hits three times this season.

Tejada had singles in the fourth, seventh and eighth innings. He drove in a run with his single in the seventh.

Tejada, who had two runs and one strikeout Sunday, has multiple hits in two of his last three games. 

Since May 29, he is batting .252 with 10 doubles, nine RBI, 10 runs, eight walks, 24 strikeouts and one stolen base in 31 games.


Indians C Yan Gomes finally finding comfort level at plate
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:52 am ET) A knee injury and the struggle to find his stroke has pretty much cost Indians catcher Yan Gomes half a season. But he's finally showing signs of life.

Gomes is batting .333 (7-for-21) in his last five games to end a 4-for-37 slide. PITCHf/x reports that he has slammed seven balls with exit velocities of at least 100 mph since June 16 after managing zero before the injury that knocked him out for six weeks. He is simply trying to grind his way through it.

"This game is so frustrating and so hard," Gomes told MLB.com. "And the more and more I think about looking at the board and seeing if I'm getting there, or if I'm going to get talks from you guys where I'm struggling or something, it's just some stuff that I can't even worry about.

"It comes down to good at-bats or hard outs or bloopers - whatever. It's going to work out the way it's supposed to work out. From my career, I know I'm a good hitter. I know things are going to turn out."

Gomes added that he's feeling better at the plate.

"You've just got to take it and know it's a good sign," he said. "I'm seeing the ball well."
