Player News
George Springer hits another dinger
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:21 am ET) Astros outfielder George Springer hit his 19th home run Wednesday against the Rangers.

In the seventh inning, Springer stepped to the plate against Jason Frasor. He worked a four-pitch at-bat. On the final pitch, Springer smashed a 93 mph fastball out to right center for the two-run shot. Springer also singled during the game. He finished 2 for 5, with one run scored and two RBI. 


David Robertson picks up 22nd save Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:14 am ET) Yankees closer David Robertson picked up his 22nd save Wednesday against the Indians.

Robertson had to wait some time to get into the game, as both teams went deep into extra innings. After a Jacoby Ellsbury put the Yankees on top, Robertson came in to finish things out in the bottom of the frame. He gave up one hit during the inning, but also managed a strikeout. Robertson lowered his ERA to 2.84 following the appearance. 


Chase Whitley earns relief win Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:07 am ET) Yankees pitcher Chase Whitley picked up a win in relief Wednesday against the Indians.

Whitley was called upon to pitch in extra innings. He provided the club with two scoreless innings. Whitley allowed one hit, and struck out three during the appearance. The Yankees managed to score during the next half inning, putting Whitley in line for the win.

With the win, Whitley moves to 4-2 on the year. 


Jonathan Papelbon hopes to be traded to contender
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:06 am ET) Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon indicated Wednesday that he'd be willing to waive his no-trade clause to be moved to a contender, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

When asked whether he would want to join a contender or stay with the Phillies, Papelbon responded, "Some guys want to stay on a losing team? That's mind-boggling to me. I think that's a no-brainer." The report also indicated that the Phillies would be likely to cover some of the salary he is owed through the end of next season to facilitate a deal.


Brandon McCarthy earns no decision in first Yankees start
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:01 am ET) Yankees pitcher Brandon McCarthy gave up one earned run in his debut with the club Wednesday.

McCarthy found himself in some trouble early on. After Carlos Santana reached on an error, the Indians managed to drive in three runs. None of those runs were officially charged to McCarthy due to the error. McCarthy settled in after that, posted three straight scoreless innings before allowing another run in the fifth. 

McCarthy allowed four runs, one earned, on nine hits over 6 2/3 innings in his team debut. Josh Tomlin also gave up four runs, so McCarthy did not factor into the decision. It’s unclear where McCarthy will slot into the team’s rotation following the All-Star break. 


Josh Tomlin does not factor into decision Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:01 am ET) Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin had a rough start against the Yankees Wednesday.

Tomlin surrendered four runs on eight hits over seven innings. Things looked solid early on, as Tomlin tossed three scoreless innings to open the game. In the fourth inning, Mark Teixeira managed to break things open with a solo shot. The following inning, Tomlin found himself in trouble. After striking out the leadoff hitter, Tomlin allowed a double and single before Brian McCann hit a sacrifice fly. Teixeira then struck again, hitting a two-run shot, which tied the game.

Tomlin left with the score tied 4-4, and did not factor into the decision. His next start has yet to be determined due to the All-Star break.


Trevor Rosenthal notches save number 27 Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Cardinals reliever Trevor Rosenthal notched save number 27 Wednesday against the Pirates.

Rosenthal entered the game with a three-run lead, and didn't get himself into too much trouble. After giving up a leadoff walk to Pedro Alvarez, Rosenthal was able to work around the base runner. He recorded one strikeout during the outing. Rosenthal now has a 3.59 ERA. 


Brandon Cumpton gets knocked around Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Pirates starter Brandon Cumpton lasted less than four innings Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Cumpton was very hittable, allowing four runs on nine hits in just 3 1/3 innings. He walked three and struck out two during the outing. Things could have been worse, as Cumpton loaded the bases in the fourth inning. After getting one out, he was removed with the bases juiced. Ernesto Frieri managed to work out of the jam without surrendering any additional runs, most of which would have been charged to Cumpton. 

The loss dropped Cumpton to 3-3 on the year. It's unclear when Cumpton will make his next start due to the approaching All-Star break. 


Lance Lynn picks up 10th win Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn picked up his 10th win Wednesday.

Lynn allowed two earned runs on six hits over 6 2/3 innings of work. He walked two and struck out four during the outing. Neil Walker proved to be a thorn in his side Wednesday. Walker hit a solo home run in the second inning, and then doubled, and eventually came around to score, in the fourth. He accounted for both runs against Lynn. 

The win moves Lynn to 10-3 on the year. His next start should come shortly after the All-Star break .


Yu Darvish knocked around against Houston Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish was smashed for six earned runs Wednesday against the Astros.

Darvish proved to be fairly hittable during the outing, allowing 10 hitters to reach base. He did not issue any walks, and struck out eight batters. Of the six innings Darvish tossed, he only had two scoreless innings. Darvish allowed six extra-base hits during the start, including a home run to Robbie Grossman in the fifth. Darvish wound up throwing 109 pitches during the start.

The loss dropped Darvish to 8-5 on the season. It’s unclear when he’ll make his next start with the All-Star Game approaching.
