Cubs RP Hector Rondon gets first save in over a month Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:49 pm ET) Cubs reliever Hector Rondon recorded his 13th save of the year in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Rockies. Rondon struck out two and walked a batter in a scoreless ninth inning to preserve the victory.

The save was Rondon's first since June 20, as the Cubs have been mixing and matching at the back end of the bullpen for the last month or so. Still, Rondon has been scored upon just once in his last 19 outings, and his ERA is down to 1.80 for the season.


Cubs yo-yo pitchers to and from Triple-A Iowa


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:23 am ET) The Cubs have made a slew of moves in the wake of their placement of reliever Neil Ramirez (abdominal) on the disabled list.

The team has recalled right-handed relievers Ben Rowen and Yoervis Medina from Triple-A Iowa and optioned starter Dallas Beeler.

Beeler certainly didn't earn his stay. He compiled an ugly 9.72 ERA in three starts.


Cubs place RP Neil Ramirez on disabled list


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:07 am ET) The Cubs have placed reliever Neil Ramirez on the disabled list with an abdominal ailment, per the Daily Herald.

Ramirez, who was unavailable to pitch Tuesday, has been getting hit hard recently. He has allowed two runs on nine hits in his last 4 2/3 innings.


Nationals RP Drew Storen unhappy about move to setup role


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:22 am ET) Deposed Nationals closer Drew Storen is not taking his exile from that role lying down. But he's also not opening up to the media about his displeasure.

Storen is now the setup man in the wake of the trade that brought veteran Jonathan Papelbon to Washington. He is displased, especially considering he has nailed down 29 of 31 save opportunities and boasts a fine 1.71 ERA.

"Really, all I'm going to say is that obviously I'm aware of the move," Storen told MASN Sports. "I've talked to (Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo) about it. I've talked to my agent. We've had some ongoing discussions. I'm just going to leave it at that and no comment for now."

Storen has not yielded a run since June 24 and is on a scoreless run of 8 1/3 innings.


Cubs RP Neil Ramirez was not available to pitch Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:42 am ET) Cubs reliever Neil Ramirez was unavailable out of the bullpen in Tuesday's game against the Rockies. It is not exactly known what has Ramirez ailing, with manager Joe Maddon telling ESPN.com "He was not OK tonight. That's why I could not use him. I have to find out more about that."

Ramirez returned from the disabled list on June 28 after dealing with a shoulder injury. It is not known if his current issue is related to that injury, or if it's something new. 


Diamondbacks summon RP Addison Reed from Triple-A


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:30 am ET) Diamondbacks reliever Addison Reed was recalled from Triple-A Reno following Tuesday's game. Reed struggled this year with Arizona, as he lost his closer's job prior to being sent down to the minors on June 22.

In 25 relief appearances with the D-Backs in 2015, Reed owns an unsightly 5.92 ERA. He's been better with the Reno Aces however, as he has a 1.74 in 11 games at Triple-A.

He will take the roster spot of Randall Delgado, who was placed on the disabled list on Tuesday.


D-Backs RP Randall Delgado sent to DL with ankle sprain


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:27 am ET) Diamondbacks pitcher Randall Delgado has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with an ankle sprain. Delgado apparently suffered the injury during warm-ups on Tuesday, and the injury was significant enough to warrant a stay on the DL. 

Reliever Addison Reed was recalled from Triple-A Reno to take Delgado's spot on the roster.


Brewers RP Francisco Rodriguez stays perfect with 23rd save


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:58 am ET) Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez shut the door and recorded his 23rd save of the season in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Giants. Rodriguez allowed a two-out hit, but was otherwise flawless in his scoreless inning of work. 

The 2015 All-Star has yet to blow a save opportunity this year.


Pirates' Mark Melancon earns win in relief


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) Pirates closer Mark Melancon entered a tie game on Tuesday, his first non-save situation in the last four outings.

Rockies' Yohan Flande earns first career win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) Rockies pitcher Yohan Flande started his first game of the season, Tuesday against the Cubs.

Marlins RP A.J. Ramos works out of jam for 17th save on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) Marlins closer A.J. Ramos picked up his 17th save of the year as he worked a scoreless ninth inning to preserve the 4-1 win over the Nationals. Ramos made things interesting, as he loaded the bases with one out, bringing the go-ahead run to the plate.

But he was able to coax a game-ending double play to seal the victory for the Marlins. Ramos has converted nine of his last 10 save opportunities and he has given up two earned runs over his last 15 outings.


Phillies' Ken Giles earns first save of year


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) Phillies reliever Ken Giles earned his first save of the year in Tuesday's win over Toronto. 

Giles pitched a scoreless ninth to protect a one-run lead. He allowed one hit and earned his second career save, and first since September 20 of last season. 


Mets RP Tyler Clippard gets into first game with new team Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) Mets reliever Tyler Clippard pitched in his first game with his new team on Tuesday. The right-hander worked a scoreless ninth inning, allowing one hit, to close out the 4-0 victory over the Padres.

The Mets were prepared to go with Jeurys Familia in the ninth, but the Mets scored two runs in the bottom of the eighth, removing the chance for a save. So manager Terry Collins opted to get Clippard's feet wet instead.


Dodgers' Paco Rodriguez starts light throwing


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) Dodgers pitcher Paco Rodriguez has started a light throwing program, per SB Nation.

Nationals RP Drew Storen moving to set-up role following trade


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) With the Nationals reportedly set to acquire right-hander Jonathan Papelbon from the Phillies, incumbent closer Drew Storen will be relegated to set-up duties, according to CBS Sports Baseball Inside Jon Heyman. 

Storen has had a terrific season so far as the Nationals' closer. He is 29-for-31 in save chances and has a 1.73 ERA this season. 

Still, the acquisition will give the Nationals a formidable back-end of the bullpen with a pair of stud closers at manager Matt Williams' disposal.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

He returns with a 1-5 record and a 4.00 ERA through his first nine starts of the season. 

In a corresponding move, the Brewers optioned right-hander David Goforth to Triple-A.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) Following the recent trade of Troy Tulowitzki to Toronto, the Rockies have shuffled their roster a bit on Tuesday. They have recalled infielder Christian Adames , right-hander Justin Miller and left-hander Aaron Laffey from Triple-A.

Adames has not appeared in the big leagues yet this season, but he owns a .296/.342/.416 slash line with 16 doubles and seven home runs in 86 games with Alburquerque. 

Miller made eight relief appearances for the Rockies earlier this season, posting a 1.29 ERA over seven innings of work.
