Varvaro (3-3) gave up a pair of singles to begin the bottom of the seventh and saw the first run cross the plate on the second out of the inning. He then surrendered a two-run home run, which was just his third homer allowed this season. Varvaro owns a 2.83 ERA and 41:9 K:BB ratio in 41 1/3 innings.

(12:30 am ET) Though the Rockies have talked to a few teams regarding closer LaTroy Hawkins, they plan to keep the pitcher through the trade deadline, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports.

The Rockies will almost assuredly pick up Hawkins' $2.25-million option if he can remain healthy throughout the season. While the Rockies appreciate his intangibles more than anything, he has converted 17 of his 18 save opportunities while posting a 3.09 ERA.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Brewers pitcher Will Smith was stuck with a loss Tuesday after giving up four earned runs on two hits and three walks in one-third of an inning in his team's 5-1 defeat against the Rays.

The only out Smith (1-3) was able to record was on a sacrifice after the leadoff man reached base via a walk. Two doubles brought home two runs, and Smith walked the bases loaded before being removed. He owns a 3.72 ERA and 65:24 K:BB ratio in 48 1/3 innings.


Scott Elbert designated for assignment


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) The Dodgers activated pitcher Scott Elbert from the 60-day disabled list Tuesday and immediately designated him for assignment.

Elbert was working his way back from three elbow surgeries over the last two years, but he was an effective arm out of the Dodger bullpen in 2011 and 2012. The team will likely hope he passes through waivers so he can continue to work towards full strength at the minor-league level.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Reds closer Aroldis Chapman picked up his 23rd save Tuesday, striking out one during a 1-2-3 inning to close out his team's 3-0 win over the Diamondbacks.

Chapman has managed to record at least one strikeout in each of his 33 outings this season, helping him post a blistering 67:11 K:BB ratio in 33 1/3 innings. He owns a 2.16 ERA and 0.78 WHIP and has converted 92 percent of his save opportunities.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Diamondbacks pitcher Trevor Cahill recorded a quality start in Tuesday's loss, surrendering three earned runs on seven hits in six innings while striking out three and walking none in his team's 3-0 defeat against the Reds.

Cahill (1-8) is still looking for his first win since rejoining the rotation, but Tuesday's start was just the second time in seven starts he's managed to complete six innings. He owns a 5.59 ERA and 53:27 K:BB ratio in 56 1/3 innings. Cahill is scheduled to face the Pirates Sunday.


Logan Ondrusek resumes throwing program Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Reds pitcher Logan Ondrusek resumed a throwing program Tuesday, playing catch on the outfield grass, MLB.com reports. He has been out since July 13 with a strained shoulder.

"He still had just a bit of soreness [Monday], so that's a good sign," manager Bryan Price said. "There will be a throwing protocol. He's going to have to take some steps as far as effort level, long toss and bullpen to be able to sign off on reactivation. If we activate him and he's sore in his first outing, we have to put him back on for 15 days."

Ondrusek owns a 4.31 ERA and 29:13 K:BB ratio in 31 1/3 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Cubs pitcher Neil Ramirez, who was sent down to the minors last week to rest his arm, is going on the disabled list with a sore triceps, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The injury is not believed to be serious and could be related to fatigue. Ramirez has been excellent in his rookie season, which is also his first year in relief work. He owns a 0.96 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 36:10 K:BB ratio in 28 innings.
