2B Brandon Phillips has historic night in Reds romp


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) Brandon Phillips had a night to remember Thursday, blasting two home runs and driving in seven runs as the Reds crushed the Pirates. 

Phillips had two three-run home runs, in the fifth and sixth innings, to spark a Reds attack that churned out 19 hits. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Phillips is the first player to have four hits, two homers, seven RBI and and two stolen bases since the RBI became an official statistic in 1920. 

Phillips entered the game with zero homers and two RBI in July. He now has seven homers and 39 RBIs on the year. 


Brewers recall Logan Schafer, Elian Herrera from Triple-A


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) The Brewers have recalled outfielder Logan Schafer and infielder/outfielder Elian Herrera from Triple-A on Thursday. 

Schaefer, who made the Brewers out of spring training, has not appeared in a game for the big club since being sent down in early May. He was 6 for 33 prior to his demotion.

Herrera has had 99 at-bats with the Brewers this year. He had a productive stretch in mid-May, when he homered in three consecutive games. Overall, he's batting .212 with four longballs. He has been down in the minors since early June.

The moves come hours after the Brewers traded away Carlos Gomez to the Astros earlier in the day.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2015) Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor, who has finally slowed down after a torrid run, is set to sit Thursday against the Yankees.

Odor, who has not missed a game since July 1, is 0-for-13 over his last three games. He had nine hits in his previous 16 at-bats.


Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis misses second straight game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2015) Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis missed a second straight start Thursday against the Royals due to a shoulder injury. Ryan Goins started in his absence.

Travis is batting .357 with a .402 on-base percentage, .488 slugging percentage and .890 OPS in 26 games since coming off the disabled list in late June. He has one home run, eight doubles, 14 runs, nine RBI, seven walks and 16 strikeouts in that span.


Cardinals recall Greg Garcia, place Dan Johnson on waivers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2015) The Cardinals recalled infielder Greg Garcia from Triple-A Memphis on Thursday after placing left fielder Matt Holliday on the 15-day disabled list.

The team also designated first baseman Dan Johnson for assignment to clear a spot on the 25- and 40-man rosters for Brandon Moss, who was acquired in a trade with the Indians.


Dodgers snag strong starters in deal with Marlins, Braves


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2015) The Dodgers have snagged several veterans in a just-completed three-way trade filled with prospects, per Yahoo Sports.

They receive starting pitchers Alex Wood and Bronson Arroyo and relievers Luis Avilan and Jim Johnson, as well as minor league utility infielder Jose Peraza from the Braves. They also get first baseman Michael Morse and starting pitcher Mat Latos from the Marlins.

The Dodgers sent several prospects to both teams. First baseman Hector Olivera, lefty Paco Rodriguez and starting pitcher Zachary Bird head to Atlanta while pitchers Victor Araujo and Angel Guzman go to Miami.

The keys are Wood and Latos, who will likely immediately join the Los Angeles rotation, as well as Johnson, who has been used as the Atlanta closer.

The 24-year-old Wood hasn't performed as well this season as he did in 2014, but he is 7-6 with a 3.54 ERA and 90 strikeouts in 119 1/3 innings.

Latos is 4-7 with a 4.48 ERA, but has come on strong. He has allowed just six earned runs in his last 26 innings pitched.

Johnson has nine saves, but will almost certainly be used behind Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen.


Report: Dodgers, Marlins, Braves working on three-team deal


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) The Braves, Dodgers and Marlins are in the working stages of a three-team, nine-player deal. According to reports, the Braves are expected to send top prospect Jose Peraza , left-hander Alex Wood and relievers Jim Johnson and Luis Avilan to the Dodgers.

In return, the Braves would receive prospect Hector Olivera , lefty reliever Paco Rodriguez and minor-league pitcher Zach Bird from the Dodgers, and a 2016 draft pick from the Marlins.

The Marlins are also sending right-hander Mat Latos and first baseman Michael Morse to the Dodgers in exchange for three minor-league pitchers--right-handers Jeff Brigham, Victor Araujo and Kevin Guzman.

None of the three teams have officially announced the deal as of yet. 


Rockies' DJ LeMahieu snaps 18-game hitting streak Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Second baseman DJ LeMahieu's hitting streak ended at 18 games, as he went 0 for 4 in the Rockies' 3-2 loss to the Cubs on Wednesday.

LeMahieu's streak was the longest active in the majors. He had gone 32 for 72 with five doubles, two triples and nine RBI over the streak. He raised his season average up from .300 to .324 over the 18-game stretch.


Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) not starting Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis is out of the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Phillies. Travis left Tuesday's game with a shoulder injury and it is possible that he lands on the disabled list, though nothing has been confirmed yet.

Travis did spend significant time on the DL with a similar shoulder injury earlier this year, so there is some concern there. Ryan Goins is getting the start at the keystone position on Wednesday. 


White Sox recall INF Leury Garcia on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Red Sox add INF Josh Rutledge to roster; Jemile Weeks DFA'd


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) The Red Sox have added infielder Josh Rutledge to the active roster on Wednesday. Rutledge was acquired in the recent trade that sent Shane Victorino to the Angels. 

Rutledge, who played in 266 games over three years with the Rockies, did not get into a big-league game with the Angels. He was hitting .274 with five home runs and 32 RBI in 78 games with the Angels' Triple-A team this year.

Abdomen strain has Mariners 2B Robinson Cano sidelined


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2015) Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano is dealing with an abdomen strain that resulted Wednesday in his first day off since June 18. Results of the MRI showed that he has a grade 1 strain, and the team hopes that he may be able to return to a DH-only role in five or six days, per 710-AM.

"He'll get a couple days off, maybe DH after that, and probably five or six days later he should be able to resume playing [second base]," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said after Wednesday afternoon's 8-2 loss to Arizona, per MLB.com.

Cano lost his eight-game hitting streak Tuesday, but still has 13 hits in his last 32 at-bats with three of the 11 home runs he has slugged this season.

"He was trying to make a play a couple of days ago and he felt it," McClendon said. "It's gotten a little worse."

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Giants second baseman Joe Panik was held out of Tuesday's game against the Brewers due to back stiffness, manager Bruce Bochy said. Bochy also said Panik will likely miss Wednesday's game, which would give him three days off with Thursday's scheduled off-day. 

Panik has been hitting decently over the last several games, as he is batting .281 over his last 10 contests.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
