Player News
Orioles sign Chris Perez to minor-league deal
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5:31 pm ET) The Orioles signed relief pitcher Chris Perez to a Triple-A deal on Thursday, per masnsports.com.

Perez will have to serve a 50-game suspension for his second drug abuse offense before he can play a game in the minors. 

"That doesn't affect us right now, obviously for 50 games. There are games played after August," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

"We all make some changes in our lives and get better."

Perez was an All-Star with the Indians in 2011 and 2012 and he recorded 75 total saves over that span.


Pirates' Francisco Liriano blanks Tigers for seven innings Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:26 pm ET) Pirates left-hander Francisco Liriano posted another gem, this time at the expense of the Tigers in the Pirates' 8-4 win on Thursday. Liriano held the Tigers scoreless over seven innings, allowing five hits and three walks while recording five strikeouts. 

Liriano (5-6) dropped his ERA under 3.00 with the terrific effort on Thursday. The veteran left-hander has allowed three runs or less in seven of his last eight starts.


Padres 1B Yonder Alonso gets a day off Thursday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:24 pm ET) Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso was held out of the starting lineup Thursday against the Cardinals for the first time in 10 games. It was just the third time he didn't start since coming off the disabled list June 2.

Since returning from the DL, Alonso is batting .289 with one home run, five doubles, 10 RBI, 11 runs, 11 walks and 14 strikeouts in 27 games.


Padres SP Brandon Morrow likely to throw bullpen session Saturday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5:24 pm ET) After throwing 30 pitches in a bullpen session Wednesday, Padres pitcher Brandon Morrow will likely throw another bullpen session Friday, reports MLB.com.

Morrow has been sidelined since May 3 with a shoulder injury. It is not known when his rehab assignment will start.


Cubs C Miguel Montero belts two-run home run on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:20 pm ET) Cubs catcher Miguel Montero slugged his 10th home run of the season in the 6-1 win over the Mets on Thursday. Montero's two-run shot came in the ninth inning with his team already up by three runs, so the home run came as little consequence to the outcome of the game.

The home run was Montero's first since June 13, breaking a 13-game drought. His season-high is 18, which came in 2011.


Brewers SP Wily Peralta throws bullpen session
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5:17 pm ET) Brewers starting pitcher Wily Peralta threw a bullpen session on Thursday as he continues to work his way back from an oblique injury, per MLB.com.

The bullpen session was Peralta's second this week, he threw one on Monday and was limited to just tossing fastballs and curveballs.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said the team will lay out a plan for Peralta's rehab within the week.


Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks misses third straight start
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:16 pm ET) Padres third baseman Will Middlebrooks missed a third straight start Thursday against the Cardinals due to a sprained right ankle. Yangervis Solarte continues to start at third base in his absence.

Middlebrooks has struggled offensively for several weeks, as he is batting .183 in his last 27 games.


Cubs' Jonathan Herrera blasts first home run since 2013 Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:15 pm ET) Cubs infielder Jonathan Herrera launched his first home run of the season in the 6-1 win over the Mets on Thursday. Herrera's two-run home run in the sixth inning off Jacob deGrom gave the Cubs a 4-1 lead at the time.

This was Herrera's first longball in nearly two years. His last home run prior to Thursday came on July 7, 2013. Herrera was getting a spot start at third base on Thursday, allowing Kris Bryant to have the afternoon off.


Athletics 1B Ike Davis not in Thursday's lineup
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5:12 pm ET) The Athletics held first baseman Ike Davis out of Thursday's lineup against the Mariners, the team announced.

Davis was replaced at first base by Stephen Vogt, who will bat second. Over his last 10 games, Davis is hitting .212 with one home run and five RBI.

The A's are the favorites (-150) over the Mariners on Thursday.


Mets' Jacob deGrom endures worst start in over a month Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:11 pm ET) Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom took the loss in his start against the Cubs on Thursday. deGrom allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings, his shortest outing and most earned runs allowed since May 11. deGrom walked two and struck out two, as his ERA rose to 2.30 on the season.

deGrom (8-6) didn't pitch all that poorly. But his offense and his defense failed to help him out in this one. The Mets' bats were stymied by opposing pitcher Jake Arrieta. 

A Mets' throwing error in the fifth inning allowed a go-ahead run to score, giving the Cubs a lead they would not give back. deGrom did give up a two-run home run to Jonathan Herrera in the sixth, but the Mets were already down 2-1 at that point, leaving deGrom with his sixth loss of the season.
