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


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:46 pm ET) Blue Jays relievers Aaron Sanchez and Roberto Osuna will share the eighth- and ninth-inning roles, manager John Gibbons said Tuesday.

The Blue Jays acquired veteran reliever LaTroy Hawkins, who has experience as a closer, in a trade with the Rockies late Monday night. However, Gibbons stressed Hawkins will be used in the sixth and seventh innings.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Royals, Athletics agree on LF Ben Zobrist trade


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(2:49 pm ET) 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 SP Mike Montgomery rebounds with strong effort


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:45 am ET) After three mediocre-to-awful starts that threatened to ruin what had been a fine rookie season, Mariners left-hander Mike Montgomery stopped the bleeding Monday night.

Montgomery wasn't lights-out, but he did allow just two earned runs on five hits in 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision against Arizona. He walked four and struck out five.

Home runs by Paul Goldschmidt and Welington Castillo in the first two innings appeared to have Montgomery reeling again. But he righted himself and later retired eight in a row.

Montgomery owns a 3.20 ERA, but hasn't won a game since July 5.


Report: Multiple teams targeting Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:26 am ET) Suitors interested in Mariners starter Hisashi Iwakuma have lined up, but the team has yet to commit to trading him, according to Fox Sports.

Iwakuma has gotten into a groove after losing most of the season to injury. He is 2-0 in his last three starts with four runs allowed and 18 strikeouts in 20 2/3 innings.


Rangers SP Matt Harrison allows six runs in Monday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2015) Rangers pitcher Matt Harrison struggled throughout his start Monday against the Yankees, which the Rangers lost 6-2.

Harrison allowed six runs on six hits over six innings of work. He also struck out two and walked two. He gave up a two-run home run to Didi Gregorius in the third inning and a solo home run to Alex Rodriguez in the sixth. His ERA rose from 5.40 to 6.75.

Harrison (1-2) has one quality start over his three starts this season.


Blown lead makes outing tough for White Sox SP John Danks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2015) The White Sox won their fifth straight in Boston on Monday night - no thanks to Danks.

Starter John Danks was rocked by the Red Sox to the tune of six earned runs on nine hits in 4 1/3 innings. He walked one and fanned two.

He certainly didn't take advantage of a four-run first for his team. That lead was gone by the second, courtesy of a two-run homer by David Ortiz and RBI double by Mookie Betts. Four straight singles in the fourth and Pablo Sandoval double in the fifth sent him to the showers.

Danks had managed three quality starts in his previous four outings. But he is still saddled with a poor 4.97 ERA.


Yankees SP Ivan Nova experiences arm fatigue in Monday's win


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2015) Yankees pitcher Ivan Nova was only able to go five innings during Monday's 6-2 win over the Rangers because of arm fatigue, reports MLB.com. After the game, Nova said he was not worried about the fatigue

Despite only lasting five innings, Nova was able to receive the win after allowing two runs on five hits. He also struck out three and walked two. Nova is now 3-3 with a 3.38 ERA.

After losing three starts in a row, Nova is 2-0 in his last two appearances. He has two quality starts in six outings this season.


Red Sox SP Joe Kelly clobbered again Monday night


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2015) One might have believed it unlikely that Red Sox starter Joe Kelly would pitch worse Monday night than he had been in recent outings. But he pulled it off.

Kelly was rocked for five runs on seven hits in 3 1/3 innings before his merciful removal in Boston. He could only be thankful that his team scored enough runs to keep him from accepting his third straight defeat.

The right-hander barely survived the first. He allowed three extra-base hits to start the game, including an RBI triple by Tyler Saladino and run-scoring double by Melky Cabrera. He let the first six batters reach in the four-run frame. A double and RBI single by Jose Abreu in the third all but signaled his departure.

Kelly has given up 20 runs in his last 23 1/3 innings pitched in weakening his ERA on the year to 5.94, its highest point since May 25.


Royals SP Edinson Volquez good enough to win Monday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2015) Royals right-hander Edinson Volquez wasn't sharp Monday night in Cleveland. But he didn't have to be.

Volquez received tremendous run support and cruised to his 10th win in 15 decisions. His five walks was one off his season high, but he allowed just three runs on six hits in six innings with four strikeouts.

It appeared that his outing would be marred only by a monster home run to center field by Carlos Santana, but the two baserunners he left in the seventh after his departure also scored.

Volquez is on a roll. He has given up eight runs in his last 30 1/3 innings pitched and is 4-1 in his last five starts.


Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez takes loss in Monday's outing


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2015) Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez received his eighth loss of the season during Monday's start at Tampa Bay.

Sanchez allowed three runs on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings during the 5-2 loss. Sanchez struck out six and walked two. He also surrendered a solo home run to Curt Casali in the third inning. He is now 10-8 with a 4.61 ERA.

Prior to Monday's loss, Sanchez had been on a four-game winning steak and had not lost any of his previous eight starts.


Rays SP Nathan Karns earns win in Monday's start


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2015) Rays pitcher Nathan Karns was solid throughout his start Monday against the Tigers, which the Rays won 5-2.

Karns allowed one run on three hits over six innings of work to earn his sixth win of the season. He also struck out three and did not walk a batter. His lone mistake was giving up a solo home run to Yoenis Cespedes in the seventh inning.

Karns has now won his last two starts and has earned a quality start in four of his last six outings.


Indians SP Cody Anderson clobbered Monday by Royals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2015) It takes some poor pitching to raise an ERA from 0.89 to 3.26 in two starts. But Indians right-hander Cody Anderson has been up - or down - to the task.

Anderson, who performed brilliantly in his first four outings, was miserable for a second straight Monday night against visiting Kansas City. He allowed seven earned runs on eight hits in 5 2/3 innings with two walks and two strikeouts.

The game got away quickly as Eric Hosmer belted a three-run homer in the first inning. An Omar Infante blast made it 4-0 in the second, then Anderson was battered by an RBI single by Hosmer and two-run double by Kendrys Morales in the fifth. He survived that, but was taken out in the sixth.

Anderson has surrendered 11 runs in his last 8 1/3 innings pitched.


Tigers SP Kyle Lobstein closing in on rehab stint


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2015) Tigers left-hander Kyle Lobstein, who has been sidelined for two months with a shoulder injury, is nearing a rehab assignment after a 60-pitch bullpen session Monday, per the Detroit Free Press.

Lobstein compiled a 3-5 record and 4.34 ERA in eight starts before going down.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Farmer is 0-2 with a 9.22 ERA in three appearances (two starts) with the Tigers this season. Ryan, who was just recalled Sunday, is 1-2 in nine games with Detroit. 


Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez cruises in bounce-back effort


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2015) Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez could hardly help performing better Sunday night against Detroit than he did in his previous start. But he went from horrible to excellent.

Rodriguez was coming off an effort against the Angels in which he allowed seven earned runs in 1 2/3 innings. He bounced back to give up just one run in seven innings in taming the Tigers. He yielded just three hits while walking one and fanning seven.

His lone hiccup wound up over the fence in the fifth inning, courtesy of Nick Castellanos. He received tremendous run support to raise his record to 6-3.

Rodriguez has proven quite inconsistent. He has surrendered two or less runs in five of his last eight starts and six or more in the other three.


Tigers SP Shane Greene gives up 11 hits, five runs in loss


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/26/2015) Tigers starting pitcher Shane Greene had a difficult time getting outs on Sunday against the Red Sox.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
