by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Britton has converted three saves in his last five appearances, and has only allowed one run over his last 10 outings. Britton only needed five pitches to record the game's final out.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Yankees DFA veteran P Chris Capuano


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2015) The Yankees have designated for assignment veteran pitcher Chris Capuano, the New York Daily News has reported.

Capuano is coming off a miserable outing Tuesday in which he allowed five earned runs with five walks in just two-thirds of an inning. He has allowed nine runs in his last 1 2/3 innings in rising his ERA on the year from 4.60 to 6.97.


Yankees' Diego Moreno tosses 5 1/3 hitless innings of relief


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Making just his third appearance of his young career, Yankees right-hander Diego Moreno was outstanding in his outing on Tuesday. Moreno was brought in to clean up Chris Capuano's mess, after he allowed five runs to score in the first inning.

Moreno wound up going 5 1/3 scoreless innings. He did not gave up a hit, as he walked one batter and struck out five. Meanwhile, the Yankees' offense exploded for 21 runs, giving Moreno his first career win. 

This outing was the longest of Moreno's short career, as he had totaled two innings combined over his first two games. He was just recalled from Triple-A prior to the game, and was able to completely shut down the Rangers offense in the middle innings. 

It remains to be seen if Moreno has a long-term role with the Yankees, or if he will be sent back down to the minors in favor of a fresh bullpen arm.


Yankees' Chris Capuano gets shelled for five runs in 2/3 innings


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) Yankees starter Chris Capuano had a disaster of an outing on Tuesday. The left-hander was lifted after recording just two outs in the first inning. He allowed five runs on five walks and three hits. He threw 42 pitches in his two-thirds of an inning, with just 18 of them going for strikes.

However, despite the nightmare outing, Capuano was left with a no-decision, as the Yankees demolished the Rangers 21-5. 

This was Capuano's fourth start of the year, and his first since May 29. He had been pitching out of the bullpen and has been getting roughed up all year. Tuesday's clunker boosted his season ERA up to an unsightly 6.97.


Twins closer Glen Perkins loses second straight


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) Twins closer Glen Perkins entered a tie game in the ninth inning, his first non-save situation in five games. 

Perkins gave up a home run, his third in two games, and took a loss for the second straight outing, dropping to 0-3 on the year. 

Perkins has allowed six runs in his last four appearances. 


Mariners' Charlie Furbush throws off mound


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) Mariners pitcher Charlie Furbush returned to the mound on Tuesday. Furbush is on the disabled list with a biceps injury. 

Furbush tested the injury with his first throwing session off a mound since suffering the injury on July 7. 

"Just 10 pitches," Furbush said, per the News Tribune. "This was a, 'Let's see what's happening. Let's see where I am.' Honestly, it was encouraging. It had been a while, but it felt pretty good."

Furbush will throw again on Thursday.


Wade Davis, Greg Holland lead Royals past Cleveland


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) The Royals bullpen shut down Cleveland over the final two innings on Tuesday. Wade Davis earned the win, moving to 7-1 on the year, and closer Greg Holland recorded his 22nd save. 

Davis pitched a perfect eighth inning, and Holland allowed just a walk in the ninth to record his second straight save. 


A's pitcher Aaron Brooks to start Saturday; Pomeranz stays in 'pen


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) New Athletics right-hander Aaron Brooks will make his first start of the season on Saturday. Brooks was involved in the just-completed Ben Zobrist deal from the Royals. He'll toe the rubber on Saturday against the Indians.

Brooks made a pair of starts for the Royals in 2014. This year he has seen action out of the bullpen for Kansas City--two relief appearances to be exact. He has made 18 appearances (17 starts) at Triple-A Omaha. There he was 6-5 with a 3.71 ERA.

Having Brooks in the rotation will keep lefty Drew Pomeranz in the bullpen for now. It is not clear if this will be a permanent situation.


A's RP Edward Mujica to become team's closer following trade


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) With the trade of Tyler Clippard to the Mets official, the Athletics have said that right-hander Edward Mujica will assume the role as the team's closer. Mujica has not recorded a save this season, though he has earned as many as 37 in a single season (in 2013).

The right-hander has had a rough go of it on the mound this season, has he currently owns a 4.13 ERA while pitching with the A's and the Red Sox. Since returning from the disabled list on June 19, Mujica holds a 5.79 ERA in 9 1/3 innings for Oakland.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Goody was promoted to New York on Saturday and had not seen any game action. Moreno will be in his second stint with the team this season.


Astros RP Samuel Deduno to have hip surgery, likely out for season


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) Astros pitcher Samuel Deduno will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his hip next week, manager A.J. Hinch announced on Tuesday. The procedure is likely to be season ending, according to MLB.com.

The right-hander has been on the disabled since the middle of May, and was able to pitch one inning in a rehab appearance. But he walked four batters in that outing and has not taken to a mound since then. 

If Deduno's 2015 season is in fact over, he'll finish with an 0-1 record and an ugly 6.86 ERA over 21 innings of relief. 


Gibbons: Sanchez, Osuna to share eighth- and ninth-inning roles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) Blue Jays relievers Aaron Sanchez and Roberto Osuna will share the eighth- and ninth-inning roles, manager John Gibbons said Tuesday.

Royals, Athletics agree on LF Ben Zobrist trade


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) The Royals and Athletics have agreed on a trade that would send left fielder Ben Zobrist to Kansas City, CBS Baseball Insider Jon Heyman is reporting.

Kansas City sent one of its top prospects, Sean Manaea , to Oakland in the swap. Manaea was a concensus top-100 prospect by MLB.com and Baseball America. In addition, the Royals also parted ways with pitcher Aaron Brooks in the trade.

For the A's, Zobrist will initially play in the outfield to help fill the void of the injured Alex Gordon. Upon Gordon's return, Zobrist can shift into the infield.


Mariners closer Carson Smith takes second straight loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) Mariners closer Carson Smith struggled for a second straight game Monday in a loss to Arizona.

Smith opened the 10th inning in a tie game with two walks and a hit-by-pitch sandwiched around a strikeout. He was removed, but a sacrifice fly scored the go-ahead run and tagged him with the loss.

He has allowed three runs and taken two defeats in his last two appearances.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

White Sox closer David Robertson shaky in earning save


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2015) White Sox closer David Robertson continued to be shaky in his role Monday night, but a three-run lead gave him some leeway.

Robertson retired the first two Red Sox at Fenway Park before trouble ensued. A walk, RBI single to Pablo Sandoval and another walk allowed the winning run to come to the plate. But Robertson induced Ryan Hanigan to ground out to secure his 22nd save.

The right-hander has given up two runs on three hits and three walks over his last three appearances.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Orioles SP Kevin Gausman blanks Braves, but win eludes him


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2015) On-again, off-again Orioles starter Kevin Gausman was on Monday night against Atlanta. But all he got for his shutout effort was a no-decision.

Gausman blanked the Braves on six hits over 7 2/3 innings with one walk and five strikeouts, but the game remained scoreless throughout his stint on the mound.

He allowed at least one baserunner in each of his first first innings before retiring nine in a row. Successive singles with two out in the eighth prompted his removal.

His finest outing of the year followed two duds and shrunk his ERA to 4.20.
