D-Backs SP Chase Anderson may make one more rehab start


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1:08 am ET) After throwing four innings during a rehab outing in the minors Sunday, Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said pitcher Chase Anderson may need another rehab start before returning to the team, reports The Arizona Republic.

Anderson was expected to replace Zack Godley in the rotation, but Hale said he is considering using a six-man rotation.

"That would help that, just get guys extra days," Hale said. "With [Patrick Corbin] coming back from Tommy John and all our young guys starting to pile up the innings. But it's tough to do that with still keeping seven bullpen guys. We would probably have to lose a position player. That's a very tough decision to make."


Cubs-Pirates postponed Monday due to rain; make-up date TBD


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:39 am ET) Monday's game between the Cubs and Pirates has been postponed due to rain. After two rain delays totaling more than three hours, the game was called in the fourth inning with the score tied 1-1.

A make-up date for the game has not yet been announced. 

Cubs manager will talk with Monday's starter Jon Lester regarding his next start. He could come back a day or two early, according to ESPN.com.

The Pirates announced that they will stay with their current rotation and keep everyone on regular rest, meaning Monday's starter Francisco Liriano will toe the rubber again on Sunday. 

Both starters were removed from the game following the first delay, which lasted two hours.


Rockies SP Eddie Butler allows seven runs in Monday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:12 am ET) Rockies pitcher Eddie Butler struggled from the first inning on during Monday's 8-7 loss to the Mariners.

Butler gave up four runs in the first inning en route to seven runs on seven hits over four innings of work. He surrendered back-to-back home runs to Kyle Seager and Nelson Cruz in the second inning and another to Brad Miller in the third. He also struck out two and walked one.

Butler is now 3-8 with a 5.45 ERA. He is winless in his last four starts and has one quality start in those outings.


Padres SP Tyson Ross receives win in Monday's start


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2015) Padres pitcher Tyson Ross produced a quality start Monday to help him earn his eighth win of the season.

Ross allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits over six innings during the 13-5 win over the Brewers. He also struck out five and walked two during the outing. He is now 8-8 with a 3.37 ERA.

Ross has won his last two starts and earned a quality start in three of his last five outings.


Giants SP Matt Cain can't get a win despite big lead on Monday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/3/2015) Giants starter Matt Cain struggled once again on Monday, his sixth start of the season after spending the beginning of the year on the disabled list. On Monday, after being staked to a 6-0 lead, Cain gave up four runs on 10 hits over five-plus innings. He walked one and struck out one, throwing 54 of his 80 pitches for strikes.

Cain cruised through the first five innings, blanking the Giants along the way. But the wheels came off in the sixth. He allowed the first two batters to reach before serving up a three-run home run to Jace Peterson. He gave up a double to the next batter, and was then lifted from the game. That run came around to score and was charged to Cain.

Though he left the game leading 6-4, Cain did not factor in the final decision, as the Braves rallied to tie the game before winning 8-7 in walk-off fashion.

Cain has now allowed four or more runs in four of his six starts. His ERA now sits at 4.91 for the season.


Brewers SP Wily Peralta allows six runs in Monday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2015) Brewers pitcher Wily Peralta struggled throughout his start Monday against the Padres, which the Brewers lost 13-5.

Peralta allowed six runs on eight hits over 3 1/3 innings. His first mistake came in the first inning when he gave up a solo home run to Yangervis Solarte. He also struck out two and walked three.

"What's frustrating is especially in the first inning, I was all right. I just gave up a homer and felt fine," Peralta said, per MLB.com. "I was locating pretty good. After that, the third hitter in the second inning, things got away."

Peralta is now 2-6 with a 4.55 ERA. He has earned a quality start in one of his last four starts.


Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz beat up for four home runs in loss


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/3/2015) Braves rookie starter Mike Foltynewicz got shelled in his outing against the Giants on Monday. The young right-hander gave up six runs on nine hits over six innings. Despite the poor performance, he was able to escape with a no-decision, as the Braves won 8-7 in walk-off fashion.

Foltynewicz was bitten by the longball in this one, as he gave up a total of four home runs on the night. He was taken deep by a couple of Brandons in the second, as Brandon Crawford and Brandon Belt each hit solo shots. Buster Posey added a two-run blast in the third, before Crawford hit another solo homer in the fourth.

Foltynewicz's ERA rose to 5.40 with the rough outing. It's the sixth start in which he's allowed at least four runs, though this was the first time since mid-June. 


Tom Koehler loses second straight for Marlins


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2015) Marlins starter Tom Koehler lost his second straight start, Monday against the Mets. 

Koehler matched a season high with seven runs allowed, six of them earned. He walked two and struck out six, dropping to 8-8 on the year. 

Koehler has given up 11 earned runs in 10 1/3 innings over the last two starts.


Mets' Bartolo Colon snaps six-decision losing streak


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2015) Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon evened his record at 10-10 with a win over Miami on Monday. The victory snapped a personal six-decision losing streak. 

Colon allowed one run and seven hits over eight innings. He didn't walk a batter for the third straight start. 

Colon's last win was June 12. 


Nationals SP Doug Fister allows three homers in loss Monday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/3/2015) Nationals starter Doug Fister had a rough outing against the Diamondbacks on Monday. The right-hander was bitten by the longball, as he allowed a trio of home runs in the 6-4 loss. On the night, he allowed five runs on eight hits over six innings. He did strike out six without walking a batter, but overall it was another shaky start for Fister.

Fister (4-7, 4.60 ERA) allowed a solo home run to Nick Ahmed in the third inning before David Peralta (two-run shot) and Welington Castillo went back-to-back in the fourth.

This is the fourth time in his past six starts that Fister has allowed at least four runs. He owns a 5.29 ERA over that stretch.


Diamondbacks SP Zack Godley wins third start, blanks Nationals


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/3/2015) Diamondbacks starter Zack Godley won his third straight start to begin his career on Monday night. The young right-hander held the Nationals scoreless over six innings, allowing just three hits and two walks while striking out six.

Godley left the game after throwing 83 pitches--48 strikes--with his club leading 6-0. They would go on to win the game 6-4.

This is the second of the three starts in which Godley tossed six shutout innings. He allowed three runs in his previous start against the Mariners, as he owns a very fine 1.50 ERA to start off his MLB tenure.

It is not entierly clear if and when Godley will make his next big-league start. Right-hander Chase Anderson is nearing a return from the disabled list, which was expected to push Godley from the rotation.

But manager Chip Hale said that might not be the case, and he is toying with the idea of going to a six-man rotation once Anderson returns, according to The Arizona Republic


Nationals' Stephen Strasburg (oblique) strikes out 11 in rehab start


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/3/2015) Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg was excellent in what could be his final rehab start on Monday. Strasburg pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowing two runs on five hits. He did not walk a batter and struck out 11, throwing 85 pitches (55 strikes) in the outing.

Strasburg has been on the disabled list for four weeks dealing with an oblique strain. He has made two rehab starts now, allowing five earned runs over 9 2/3 innings.

He could be back with the Nationals by the weekend, though the team has not made any official announcements regarding Strasburg's return.

"We'll see how he feels," manager Matt Williams said, per MLB.com.


Cubs call up Matt Szczur; DFA Clayton Richard


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2015) The Cubs promoted outfielder Matt Szczur from Triple-A on Monday, reports ESPNChicago.com. Szczur hit .211 with one home and eight RBI in 32 games earlier this season.

To make room for Szczur, the team designated pitcher Clayton Richard for assignment. Richard went 2-0 with a 4.29 ERA over three starts this season.


Counsell: Kyle Lohse scheduled to start Friday vs. Cardinals


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2015) Brewers starting pitcher Kyle Lohse remains on track to start Friday against the Cardinals, manager Craig Counsell told reporters Monday. Counsell indicated Sunday that Lohse's spot in the rotation was in jeopardy following a third straight loss. 

The veteran right-hander has struggled all season, compiling a 5-13 record and 6.31 ERA through 22 starts. He is winless in his last five starts, going 0-4 with a 6.58 ERA in that span.


Rockies confirm Jon Gray will make MLB debut Tuesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2015) Starting pitcher prospect Jon Gray will make his MLB debut Tuesday against the Mariners, the Rockies confirmed Monday.

The 23-year-old Gray was the third overall selection in the 2013 MLB Draft. The hard-throwing right-hander is 6-6 with a 4.33 ERA and 1.49 WHIP in 21 outings (20 starts) at Triple-A this season. Although, his numbers are a little inflated due to a rocky start to the season. In his last 17 starts, he is 6-3 with a 3.17 ERA and .256 opponents' batting average.

Gray is 20-11 with a 3.82 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in three minor-league seasons. He is striking out 8.9 batters per nine innings.

He entered the season as a top-25 prospect, according to MLB.com, Baseball America and BaseballProspectus.com.

Manager Walt Weiss said Gray would be under an innings limit of no more than 30-35 innings for the rest of the season, reports The Denver Post.

"It's pretty restrictive," Weiss said. "Because one year to the next, you want a guy to stay within that 20-25 percent bump, especially for a young pitcher."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
