Yankees' Andrew Miller to start rehab assignment on Monday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(12:55 pm ET) Yankees reliever Andrew Miller will pitch for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday, in what he hopes will be a one-game minor league rehab stint.

Astros pitcher Chad Qualls nearing rehab assignment


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:32 pm ET) Astros pitcher Chad Qualls was recently able to throw a bullpen session and he will pitch in one or two games at Double-A this week, reports the Houston Chronicle

Qualls is on the 15-day disabled list with a pinched nerve in his trapezius and neck.

"He's coming along great," manager A.J. Hinch said. "He threw a really good bullpen here in Boston, he played catch again [Sunday]. So that's very encouraging that we've solved the pain he had. We didn't think it was going to last the whole 15 days he had [to be out], but it was necessary to put him on there given the rest of the roster."

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:56 am ET) Rangers right-hander Spencer Patton got lit up in a relif outing on Saturday. Spencer entered the game in the sixth inning with the Angels up 5-0. Before he knew it, he had allowed six runs, including a three-run home run to C.J. Cron, while getting just two outs in the inning. 

With the horrid outing, Patton's ERA jumped up seven runs, from 4.05 to 11.05. Patton had given up a total of three runs in his first six appearances this season, prior to Saturday's meltdown.


Twins RP Glen Perkins works clean inning Saturday for 27th save


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/4/2015) Twins closer Glen Perkins recorded his 27th save in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Royals. Perkins worked another perfect ninth inning, striking out a pair of batters on the way. The right-hander hasn't allowed a run in his last 11 appearances.

Royals' Joe Blanton loses second straight start on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/4/2015) Royals right-hander Joe Blanton gave up four runs on nine hits over five innings in the 5-3 loss to the Twins on Saturday. Blanton struck out four and did not walk a batter, but he picked up his second consecutive loss.

Blanton (2-2, 3.74 ERA) got off to a bad start on Saturday, as he gave up a two-run home run to Joe Mauer in the first inning. He would give up another run later in the inning, before allowing an RBI triple to Trevor Plouffe in the fifth inning. 

After allowing two earned runs over 11 innings in his first two starts of the season, Blanton has now allowed eight runs in 7 2/3 innings.

"It was good to get him into the fifth inning, especially after the first," Royals manager Ned Yost said, per MLB.com. "Mechanically, he was drifting, which means that his body was going forward, not allowing his arm to catch up. It results in a flat fastball and not as much bite on the sinker. He finally, about the middle of the second, stayed back more. He was pretty good from that point on. But the big, three-run first inning was a little bit of a hole to climb out of."

It remains to be seen if he will get another start, as the Royals are expecting to have Yordano Ventura back from the disabled list next week sometime.
