Player News
Report: Rockies not looking to move Brett Anderson
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12:31 pm ET) Rockies pitcher Brett Anderson is set to take the mound Wednesday against the Cubs, and FOXSports.com reports it will not be his last appearance with the team.

The Rockies are not considering trading Anderson according to the report, and will likely look to lock him up for next season and beyond. Anderson has an option for $12 million for next season, and the Rockies plan to pick up that option, and possibly extend him beyond that.

Anderson has a 3.24 ERA in 33 1/3 innings for the Rockies this season, while missing three months due to a broken finger. 


Illness costs Chris Carter lineup spot against Athletics
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:29 pm ET) Astros outfielder Chris Carter, who has slumped a bit after a hot streak, has been scratched from the Wednesday afternoon lineup against visiting Oakland with an illness.

Carter has one hit in his last 12 at-bats, is on a roll in general with two home runs and nine RBI in his last nine games.


Michael Pineda ready to roll into rehab start Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:20 pm ET) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda is set to make a rehab start Sunday, though his destination has yet to be determined.

Pineda, who threw 45 pitches in a simulated game Tuesday, has been out with a shoulder injury since late April. His minor league rehab is expected to last about a month.

"I think you've got to get him to where he can go 90 pitches, and you feel good abot it (and) where he's not fatiguing," Joe Girardi told the New York Daily News. "I think if you get there, then he's a guy you think about."

Pineda compiled a 2-2 record and 1.83 ERA in four starts before a 10-game suspension from Major League Baseball for his use of pine tar on the mound. He sustained the injury upon his return.


Adam Jones opens game with solo homer
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12:19 pm ET) Orioles outfielder Adam Jones snapped out of a bit of a home power outage Tuesday, in a 7-6 win over the Angels.

Jones ended a six-game streak without a home run Tuesday, as he clubbed a solo shot in the first inning to get the Orioles on the board. It was his only contribution to the winning effort, as he finished 1 for 5 with one strikeout.

Jones has seen his average fall to .292 during a month of July that has seen him hit just .244/.286/.456. He still has five home runs and 16 RBI during the month, bringing his season total to 20 and 65, respectively. 


Nick Markakis drives in three with homer in win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12:18 pm ET)  Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis played a big part in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the Angels, as he drove in three runs.

Markakis drove in all three runs in the fourth inning with his home run, his eighth of the season. He finished the game 2 for 6 overall, with one strikeout and one run scored.

Markakis has had a successful bounceback season, hitting .285/.346/.393 in 438 at-bats. He also has eight home runs in just 105 games, after hitting just 10 in 160 games a year ago. 


Josh Hamilton drives in three in win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12:09 pm ET) Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton snapped out of a funk Tuesday, in a 7-6 loss to the Orioles.

 Hamilton, who was just 2 for 14 over his previous five appearances, had hits in half of his at-bats Tuesday. He went 3 for 6 with a solo home run, and added two other RBI with a groundout in the first inning and an infield single in the seventh to tie the game.

Tuesday's was Hamilton's first home run since July 2, and third in the month of July. He has six in 215 at-bats overall, while hitting .293/.365/.442 with 32 RBI on the season. 


Emilio Bonifacio slams second homer in defeat of Rockies
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:05 pm ET) Cubs leadoff hitter Emilio Bonifacio continued to run with his momentum Tuesday night in a 16-inning win over Colorado. He tied the game in the fifth inning with his second homer of the season and added a double and two singles in seven at-bats.

Bonifacio has nine hits in his last four games in raising his batting average to .279, its highest point since May 26.


Yangervis Solarte stays hot with homer against Cardinals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:59 am ET) Third baseman Yangervis Solarte continued to rake since joining the Padres with another big game Tuesday in a victory over St. Louis.

Solarte homered in the seventh inning and scored two runs. He has eight hits, including two taters, in 28 at-bats since the trade that brought him to San Diego from the Yankees.


Yasiel Puig remains on roll in defeat of Braves
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:50 am ET) Dodgers slugger Yasiel Puig fell a home run short of a cycle Tuesday night in leading a 15-hit attack that overwhelmed Atlanta.

Puig tripled, doubled, singled twice and scored twice in the win. His four-hit performance was his second in the last four games. His .317 batting average and .544 slugging percentage are at their highest points in about six weeks.


Adam Dunn homers, strikes out twice in win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:50 am ET) White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn had another all-or-nothing game Tuesday, in an 11-4 win over the Tigers.

Dunn had just one hit as he went 1 for 4 in the win, but he made it count. Dunn slugged a solo home run in the seventh inning, and added one walk while striking out twice.

Dunn now has 16 home runs and 43 RBI, while also ranking third in the American League in walks with 61. He is hitting .230/.364/.443 in 206 at-bats overall.
