Report: Orioles set to place SP Miguel Gonzalez on DL Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:01 pm ET) The Orioles are planning to place struggling starter Miguel Gonzalez on the disabled list Friday, according to MASNsports.com.

Gonzalez, who is dealing with elbow inflammation and right shoulder pain, has been a mess on the mound of late. He has surrendered 29 runs over his last 35 innings and has dropped his last five decisions. His ERA has risen to a season-worst 4.85.


Report: SP Mike Wright to rejoin Orioles on Thursday night


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:51 pm ET) Pitcher Mike Wright is set to join the Orioles in Toronto on Thursday night, per the Virginian-Pilot.

Wright has been sidelined with an oblique injury for five weeks and has recently completed a rehab stint at Triple-A Norfolk. He is a candidate to start Saturday in Toronto, according to MASNsports.com.

The right-hander owns a 2-3 record and 4.99 ERA in seven big league outings, including six starts.


Twins SP Kyle Gibson gets no-decision despite quality start


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:23 pm ET) Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson turned in a quality start on Thursday against the White Sox, but was left with a no-decision. Gibson allowed three runs on five hits over six innings. He struck out four and did not walk a batter, as the Twins dropped the series-finale 6-4.

Gibson allowed an early run in the top of the first inning, but the Twins rallied to take the lead on the heels of an Eddie Rosario grand slam in the third. But the White Sox chipped away, adding runs in the fourth and sixth innings. He left the game with the score tied 3-3, but the bullpen gave up three runs in the seventh.

Gibson has allowed three runs or fewer in five of his last seven starts, as his ERA is down to 3.84 on the year.


White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija gives up grand slam, still gets a win


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:15 pm ET) White Sox starter Jeff Samardzija was actually out-pitched by opposing Twins starter Kyle Gibson on Thursday, but the tall right-hander walked away with his ninth win of the season. Samardzija allowed four runs on five hits over 6 1/3 innings. He walked four and struck out four, en route to the 6-4 victory.

Samardzija (9-11, 4.87 ERA) didn't pitch quite as poorly as his line may suggest. All four runs came from one swing of the bat--a grand slam by Eddie Rosario in the third inning. The White Sox, meanwhile, were able to rally back and retake the lead.

The win snapped a personal six-game losing streak for Samardzija. Still, he has allowed a total of 14 earned runs over his last three starts, spanning 17 2/3 innings.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:48 pm ET) Tigers starting pitcher Kyle Lobstein (shoulder) was activated off the 60-day disabled list Thursday. The Tigers also announced he will start Friday's game against the Indians.

White Sox's Erik Johnson starting Sunday, Chris Sale pushed to Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:15 pm ET) The White Sox made a slight change to their pitching rotation Thursday. The team announced starting pitcher Erik Johnson will start Sunday against the Royals, which will bump Chris Sale to Monday against the Indians.

Johnson, who was added to the roster Tuesday, will make his season debut Sunday after a stellar season for Triple-A Charlotte. He went 11-8 with a 2.37 ERA in 23 outings (22 starts). He also had 136 strikeouts in 132 2/3 innings.

Sale is 1-0 with a 1.80 ERA in two starts against Cleveland this season. He is 7-1 with a 2.42 ERA in 12 starts this season with five days of rest.


Twins SP Phil Hughes days away from throwing simulated game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Hamels (8-8) has a 3.70 ERA in 170 1/3 innings this season.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(12:24 am ET) Astros starting pitcher Scott Kazmir lasted just 4 1/3 innings during his start against the Mariners on Wednesday.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Rays SP Erasmo Ramirez allows four runs in no-decision


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(9/2/2015) Rays starting pitcher Erasmo Ramirez didn't have his best stuff during his start against the Orioles on Wednesday.

Ramirez allowed four runs on six hits in just four innings of work. He allowed a home run but did manage to record six strikeouts in the no-decision.

Ramirez now has a 3.84 ERA this season.


Orioles SP Kevin Gausman gives up two homers in short outing


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(9/2/2015) Orioles starting pitcher Kevin Gausman suffered his shortest start of the season on Wednesday against the Rays.

Gausman lasted just 2 1/3 innings before being pulled from the game. He allowed four runs, three of them earned, on eight hits while giving up two home runs and two walks in the no-decision.

Gausman (2-6) now has a 4.59 ERA in 82 1/3 innings this season.


Tigers SP Randy Wolf clobbered in Kansas City


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) Veteran starter Randy Wolf provided encouragement to the Tigers with his first two starts. He provided discouragement with his effort Wednesday in Kansas City.

Wolf was pounded for eight runs on eight hits in just 3 2/3 innings. He walked two and struck out three. He escaped no inning unscathed.

The big blows against him were home runs by Ben Zobrist and Lorenzo Cain, who added a two-run double.

Wolf had his ERA soar from 2.57 to 6.11 with the miserable performance. He is 0-3 on the season.


Royals SP Yordano Ventura remains on roll by stifling Tigers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) The new-and-improved Yordano Ventura continued to pitch like an ace Wednesday for the Royals.

Ventura hurled seven innings against visiting Detroit and yielded only one run on five hits. Most indicative of his dominance was his one walk and 11 strikeouts. The lone run scored on a groundout in the sixth.

The right-hander turned on the switch in early August and it has remained on. He has given up only four runs on 20 hits in his last 32 innings with a whopping 43 strikeouts. His 4.24 ERA is at its lowest point since April 12.


White Sox SP Carlos Rodon not good enough Wednesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) White Sox starter Carlos Rodon needed to be lights-out Wednesday night at Minnesota. He was only good.

The result was a defeat that evened his record to 6-6 as his team got shut out. Rodon allowed two runs on five hits in six innings with three walks and four strikeouts.

He gave up the only run the Twins really needed in the second on a Miguel Sano homer. Two more runs scored in the second on a Trevor Plouffe double.

Rodon has been on a roll. He has surrendered only seven runs over his last 34 innings, but has just two victories to show for it. 


Twins SP Tommy Milone masterful in blanking White Sox


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) Twins southpaw Tommy Milone has experienced both good and bad starts this season. But he had not pitched seven shutout innings since the first time he took the mound in April.

That is, until Wednesday night against the scuffling White Sox. Milone allowed just three hits with no walks and seven strikeouts, his largest total since June 28.

Milone did not yield a hit until a Tyler Saladino single in the third. He then retired nine of the next 10. 

His 3.60 ERA is at its lowest point since July 25.


Inconsistent Indians SP Trevor Bauer battered by Blue Jays


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) Indians enigmatic starter Trevor Bauer is either really good or really bad. He was really bad in Toronto on Wednesday night. The result was predictable.

Bauer surrendered five runs on six hits in just 1 1/3 innings. He walked one and whiffed two.

He was greeted by RBI singles from Josh Donaldson and Troy Tulowitzki before escaping further trouble in the first. Two singles and a two-run double by Donaldson in the second knocked him out of the game.

Bauer was coming off successive performances in which he allowed just two runs in 14 1/3 innings.


Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey shackles Indians on four hits


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey had the old knuckleball knuckling Wednesday against visiting Cleveland. The result was his first complete-game victory of the season.

Dickey allowed just one run on four hits with no walks and six strikeouts. He retired the first nine batters he faced before giving up three singles in the fourth inning, including one by Carlos Santana that drove in the lone run.

The right-hander had been struggling a bit since a strong run in July and early August, but the outing against the Indians puts him back on track. It also raised his record to 10-10 and lowered his ERA to 4.09.


Mariners rehabbing P James Paxton removed from Triple-A start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) Mariners left-hander James Paxton was considered to be one healthy rehab start away from returning to the big-league mound. But a monkey wrench might have been thrown into those plans.

Paxton was removed in the fourth inning of his outing Wednesday for Triple-A Tacoma. He left the mound with the trainer looking at a finger on his pitching hand. He had been sidelined for more than three months with a finger injury.

It remains to be seen if what appears to be a setback will prevent him from joining the Mariners in the near future.


Shelved Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman lights-out in rehab start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) The hope that Marcus Stroman can return to full health in time to pitch for the Blue Jays this season was strengthened by his rehab effort Wednesday for Class A Lansing.

Stroman tossed 4 2/3 innings of no-hit ball against Great Lakes. He walked one, fanned seven, and threw 44 of his 69 pitches for strikes.

The right-hander has been sidelined all year after undergoing knee surgery.


Blue Jays flip weekend starts of Mark Buehrle, David Price


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) The Blue Jays have announced that they have flip-flopped starters Mark Buehrle and David Price in the rotation. Buehrle will now pitch Sunday against Baltimore with Price moved up to Saturday.

The decision was made to give Buehrle more rest, according to MLB.com. Buehrle conceded in August that he doesn't generally feel to be in peak condition this time of the season and that 2015 is no exception.


Red Sox SP Henry Owens mashed by Yankees


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) Red Sox rookie starter Henry Owens took the first pounding of his major league career Wednesday against the Yankees.

Owens gave up seven runs on six hits in just 1 2/3 innings with two walks and two strikeouts.

The lefty retired the Yankees in order in the first, then couldn't make it out of the second. Successive homers by Greg Bird and John David Murphy sent him reeling and run-scoring singles by Chris Young and Alex Rodriguez knocked him out.

The terrible performance sent his ERA skyrocketing from 4.03 to 5.87.


Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka benefits from run support in win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) The bad news for Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka is that his streak of quality starts is over. The good news is that his team scored so many runs for him Wednesday in Boston that it didn't matter.

Tanaka struggled after his team bolted out to a 12-1 lead. He allowed four runs on six hits in 6 1/3 innings with one walk and five strikeouts.

He was cruising after an RBI double by David Ortiz in the first. But he gave up three runs in the sixth and seventh, including a blast by Xander Bogaerts.

Tanaka had five consecutive quality starts before faltering against the Red Sox.


Angels SP Andrew Heaney recovers from bad start to win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) Angels rookie starter Andrew Heaney appeared destined for an early departure from the mound Wednesday in Oakland.

Heaney allowed three runs on five singles and a wild pitch in the first inning after his teammates handed him a 6-0 lead. But he did not fritter it away. He responded with six shutout innings and finished having yielded seven hits with no walks and three strikeouts.

The talented southpaw has given up just three runs in 13 innings over his last two starts. He has now won six of eight decisions and is sporting a 3.18 ERA.


Athletics ace Sonny Gray clobbered Wednesday by Angels


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) It was not a sunny day for Sonny Gray in Oakland on Wednesday. He took a rare pounding by the Angels.

The Athletics right-hander allowed six runs in the first two innings before settling down to toss shutout ball over the last three he pitched. He gave up eight hits while walking one and fanning two, matching a season-low.

The first four batters he faced singled as Gray gave up four in the first inning. Albert Pujols took him deep for a two-run homer in the second.

It marked the first time he has surrendered six earned runs in an outing this season.
