by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

House will rest for two weeks before resuming his throwing program. House is at Triple-A and has been dealing with a shoulder injury.


Indians hope Josh Tomlin can begin rehab assignment soon


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(9:54 am ET) Indians manager Terry Francona said pitcher Josh Tomlin could begin his rehab assignment pretty soon, reports Cleveland.com.

Tomlin has been sidelined for the entire season after undergoing shoulder surgery.


Angels pitcher Jered Weaver feels good after bullpen session


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(9:39 am ET) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver said he felt fine after completing his third bullpen session since suffering a hip injury, reports MLB.com.

"He won't be ready before the break," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "Should be ready after."

Weaver has been sidelined since June 21 with left-hip inflammation.


Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez suffers loss in rout on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:37 am ET) Rangers left-hander Wandy Rodriguez has a rough start against the Angels on Saturday. Rodriguez allowed five runs on nine hits over five innings. He walked three and struck two, as the Angels took the 13-0 win. 

Rodriguez (5-4) brought his ERA up to 4.23 with the poor outing. He gave up three runs in the second inning and another in the third before allowing a solo home run to Kole Calhoun in the fifth.

The veteran southpaw has now given up 14 earned runs over 14 innings in his last three starts. 


Angels SP Hector Santiago rides offensive explosion in win Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:31 am ET) Backed by a 13-run offensive explosion on Saturday, Angels starter Hector Santiago earned his fifth win of the season. Santiago fired seven shutout innings against the Rangers, allowing just three hits and one walk while striking out three. 

Santiago (5-4) was pretty much in control of this one throughout, as he did not allow a runner to get passed second base.

"He had really good life on his fastball," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said, per The Orange County Register. "He moved it around, mixed in a couple changeups, a couple breaking balls, really pitched ahead in the count most of the night."

His 2.40 ERA ranks fourth in the American League. He has four consecutive quality starts, and hasn't allowed more than three runs in an outing since June 3.


Twins SP Mike Pelfrey goes four innings in no-decision Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/4/2015) Twins right-hander Mike Pelfrey came away with another disappointing outing on Saturday. Pelfrey lasted just four-plus innings against the Royals. He allowed three runs on seven hits, while walking three and striking out three. Pelfrey was able to escape with a no-decision, however, as the Twins held on to beat the Royals 5-3.

The Twins staked Pelfrey to a 3-0 lead in the first inning, and he was able to keep the Royals off the board for the first four innings. But, after the Twins tacked on another run, Pelfrey allowed the first three men to face him in the fifth to reach base before Lorenzo Cain singled in a pair. Pelfrey was then lifted for a reliever, but another run would come into score before the inning was over.

"I thought my stuff was way too good to not get anybody out in the fifth," Pelfrey said, per MLB.com. "I thought I had good stuff but didn't execute pitches in there in the fifth. But the bullpen picked me up and the offense scored another run and we were able to win. So I need to be better, but these guys picked me up."

Pelfrey's ERA sits at 3.94 now, and he has allowed 11 runs over six innings in his last two starts.


Twins P Trevor May heads to bullpen, maybe starting job in minors


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2015) The odd man out of the rotation upon the return of suspended Ervin Santana on Sunday is Trevor May.

May has been arguably the team's best starter lately. He owns a 4.37 ERA with 18 walks and 71 strikeouts in 80 1/3 innings this season, but boasts a 3.23 ERA since June 1.

His stay in the bullpen - or with the Twins - might not last. Paul Molitor has declared that May could be moved back into a starting role at Triple-A Rochester after the All-Star break.

"Trevor was great [Friday] when I told him about it," Molitor told the team website. "We have to decide long-term to see how that works out or if going into a rotation down below would help us in case something happened to one of our guys."


A's SP Kendall Graveman blanks Mariners for seven innings


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/4/2015) Athletics right-hander Kendall Graveman was excellent in his start against the Mariners on Saturday. Graveman fired seven shutout innings, allowing five hits and one walk while striking out one in the 2-0 victory.

Graveman improved his record to 6-4 and lowered his ERA to 3.16 with the fine outing on Saturday.

"Outstanding. Efficient," A's catcher Stephen Vogt said, per MLB.com. "I thought he did such a great job today of getting to 0-2 and putting them away quickly."

He now has seven consecutive quality starts, allowing a total of nine runs in 49 innings over that stretch.


Mariners' Felix Hernandez gives up season-high 10 hits Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/4/2015) Mariners ace Felix Hernandez allowed two runs and a season-high 10 hits over seven innings in a 2-0 loss to the A's on Saturday. Only one of the hits Hernandez gave up went for extra bases, but he was also out-pitched by Kendall Graveman in this one.

Hernandez (10-5) walked two and struck out six on Saturday. He gave up a run in the first inning and another in the seventh, as he really avoided any serious damage.

"It was tough today," said Hernandez, per MLB.com. "It was a battle all day long. I was just trying to make good pitches when I got runners in scoring position."

The right-hander has allowed a total of two runs over 13 innings in his last two starts, but has no wins to show for it. His season ERA sits at 3.02.


Indians rookie SP Cody Anderson great again, but falls to Pirates


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2015) Indians right-hander Cody Anderson was saddled with his first career defeat Saturday in Pittsburgh. But aside from the decision, it was another triumph.

Anderson earned his first complete game by pitching eight innings and allowing just one run on six hits. He walked none, fanned four and tossed a mere 92 pitches.

The impressive rookie, whose only hiccup was an RBI single to Neil Walker in the sixth, has given up just two runs in 23 2/3 innings over three starts. He actually raised his ERA to 0.76 in taking the loss. Walker came away impressed.

"He pounded the strike zone," he told the Northeast Ohio Media Group. "He pounded the strike zone with fastballs, sliders and changeups. We found early on that he was going to nibble in the zone. He was going to make us beat him."


Royals SP Yordano Ventura to make rehab start on Monday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/4/2015) Royals right-hander Yordano Ventura will make one more rehab start for Triple-A Omaha on Monday, prior to being activated from the disabled list, according to MLB.com. Ventura hasn't pitched for the Royals since June 12 due to irritation in his ulnar nerve.

It is not clear when Ventura will make his next big-league start.


Orioles SP Chris Tillman allows 10 hits in no-decision


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/4/2015) Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman struggled to get outs on Saturday against the White Sox.

Tillman lasted just 4 2/3 innings, gave up 10 hits and allowed two earned runs while picking up a no-decision. He did manage to strike out four batters and walk just one.

Tillman has a 5.57 ERA this season.


White Sox SP Samardzija tosses gem, ends up with no-decision


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/4/2015) White Sox starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija pitched as well as anyone could on Saturday against the Orioles and still didn't come away with a win.

Samardzija -- who held a no-hitter through 5 2/3 innings -- allowed just one earned run on three hits in 7 2/3 innings of work. He also tied a season-high with nine strikeouts.

Samardzija lowered his ERA to 4.33 with the impressive performance.

"He was just on," Orioles third baseman Manny Machado said, per MLB.com. "He was throwing all his pitches for strikes and throwing it well. It's just one of those days he was throwing the ball well and we weren't hitting."


Rangers' Matt Harrison off DL on Saturday; will start Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/4/2015) Rangers left-hander Matt Harrison has been reinstated from the disabled list on Saturday. Harrison is set to make his season debut and start on Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

Harrison hasn't thrown a big-league pitch since May of 2014, as he has been recovering from back injury that cost him most of last season.  

Yovani Gallardo will pitch on Tuesday to open the series against the D-Backs, with Harrison going on Wednesday. Then, the Rangers are expected to go with Wandy Rodriguez, Colby Lewis and Gallardo to complete the first-half of the season against the Padres, according to the Dallas Morning News.


Rangers recall pitcher Anthony Ranaudo from Triple-A


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/4/2015) The Rangers have recalled right-hander Anthony Ranaudo from Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday. Ranaudo, a former first-round draft pick, made two starts for the Rangers earlier this season, going 0-1 with a 6.48 ERA.

However, Ranaudo is expected to pitch in a long-relief role this time up, at least for the short term. 

To clear room on the roster, right-hander Chi Chi Gonzalez was sent down to Triple-A.


Rangers option SP Chi Chi Gonzalez to Triple-A on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/4/2015) Rangers starter Chi Chi Gonzalez has been optioned to Triple-A Round Rock, the team announced on Saturday. Gonzalez was lit up for six runs over 1 1/3 innings on Friday, though he had been quite impressive in his six previous starts. But his 15:19 K:BB ratio is certainly an area of concern.

Overall, the young right-hander posted a 3.74 ERA in the first seven starts of his career. 

To take his spot on the roster, the Rangers have right-hander Anthony Ranaudo from Round Rock.


Astros SP Collin McHugh allows three runs in loss to Red Sox


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/4/2015) Astros starting pitcher Collin McHugh didn't have his best stuff on Saturday against the Red Sox.

McHugh tossed 5 1/3 innings, allowed three earned runs on seven hits and picked up his fourth loss of the season. He allowed one run apiece in each of the first and second innings, and another in the fifth. McHugh struggled with giving up free bases as he walked three batters.

McHugh (9-4) ahs a 4.54 ERA with 85 strikeouts and 27 walks in 107 innings of work this season.


Blue Jays' R.A. Dickey loses third straight start


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2015) Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey lost to Detroit on Saturday, losing his third straight start and dropping to 3-9 on the year. 

Dickey gave up five runs on a season-high 11 hits, the most hits he's allowed in a start since May 30, 2013. He also gave up a home run, his fourth in the last six starts. 

"Sometimes that's the nature of the game," said Dickey, per MLB.com. "You have a rough first inning, sometimes you have rough fifth innings, but it is psychologically a little bit more difficult to continue to give the offence a hole to dig out of.

"So, today was a disappointment for sure. At the very least, I was able to eat some innings with a thin 'pen, and hopefully that will put us in a position to be OK for the next few games."


Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz throws complete-game gem


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/4/2015) Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz might have enjoyed his best start of the season on Saturday against the Astros.

Buchholz tossed a comple-game in which he was in command up until the very end. He allowed six hits and just one earned run, which came off a single that scored a runner from third base in the ninth inning.

"He's been on a run the last 10 starts where he's been in control," said Red Sox manager John Farrell, per MLB.com. "That was the case again today for the full nine innings -- a number of pitches with men on base that he was able to execute. He's in such a good place mentally where he's repeating his delivery. He's commanding four pitches for strikes, and in control today."

Buchholz improved to 7-6 with the win. He now has a 3.27 ERA with 104 strikeouts and 23 walks in 110 innings this season.


David Price wins fourth straight for Tigers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2015) Tigers starter David Price won his fourth decision in a row, Saturday against Toronto.

Price allowed one run on eight hits over seven innings. He's allowed zero or one runs in four of his last six starts.

Price struck out seven and walked one. He hasn't allowed more than one walk in the last five starts.

Price moved to 8-2 on the year.  


Yankees bullpen costs Michael Pineda a win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2015) Yankees starter Michael Pineda pitched seven shutout innings and left with a two-run lead. The bullpen couldn't close the game, however, and Pineda was left with a no-decision on Saturday.

Pineda had his longest shutout stretch since May 5 and struck out 10, the most he's recorded in a game since May 10. He allowed five hits and walked one. 

Pineda hasn't allowed more than two walks in a game all season. 

"His slider was good, his changeup was really good and I thought his fastball was extremely effective," manager Joe Girardi said, per MLB.com. "I thought he located well."


Rays' Nathan Karns takes no decision with seven innings


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2015) Rays starter Nathan Karns once again pitched well enough to win and had nothing to show for it on Saturday.

Karns matched a season high with seven innings pitched, giving up two runs on five hits. Karns also struck out a career-high 10. 

The Rays couldn't manage a run while Karns was in the game, however, and he left with a no-decision. 

"Nate Karns was tremendous," Rays manager Kevin Cash said. "And he's been tremendous, but he just keeps going out there and pressing against a very difficult lineup in this ballpark. He goes out there and gave us every opportunity to win and gave us the opportunity to rest a bunch of bullpen guys. I cannot say enough about what he did. That was just awesome."

It was the third no-decision in the last five starts for Karns. In one, he allowed one run over six innings, and in the other, he pitched six shutout innings. 


Twins' Ervin Santana activated for Sunday's start


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2015) As expected, the Twins activated pitcher Ervin Santana from the suspended list on Saturday. 

Santana will start Sunday's game for Minnesota. 

Santana served an 80-game suspension after testing positive for steroids in the spring. He was 3-0, 1.74 in three rehab starts for Triple-A Rochester. 


Orioles inform Bud Norris he's headed to the bullpen


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2015) The Orioles informed Bud Norris that he would be sent to the bullpen, per the Baltimore Sun.

Manager Buck Showalter confirmed that Kevin Gausman would start Tuesday's game, and Norris would be the right-handed long-relief man and spot starter. 

"We certainly have confidence in him, but he’s capable of a lot better level than he’s pitching at right now," Showalter said of Norris. 

"I'm going to go down there and pitch and when I get called on, I'm going to do the best job I can," Norris said

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2015) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer rebounded put in a solid effort in Friday night's 5-2 win over the Pirates. 

Bauer went 6 1/3 innings and gave up two earned runs on three hits. He struck out three batters and walked one. Bauer had a much better performance after allowing 11 runs and five walks combined in his last two starts. 

Bauer improved to 7-5 and now has a 3.88 ERA.
