Pirates SP J.A. Happ tosses three hitter in Friday's win


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:25 am ET) Pirates pitcher J.A. Happ was nearly unhittable during Friday's 9-3 win over the Cardinals. Happ did not allow a run over seven innings and only gave up three hits.

He also struck out eight and did not walk a batter. Happ is now 8-7 with a 3.90 ERA and has won his last four outings.


Padres pitcher Josh Johnson leaves rehab game after one batter


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2015) Padres pitcher Josh Johnson left Friday's rehab game after facing one hitter, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Johnson left with a trainer, but the injury is not known. Johnson is coming off Tommy John surgery. Friday was his first rehab assignment game since the surgery.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(9/4/2015) The Brewers and Reds will play a doubleheader on Saturday after a rainout Friday.

For the Reds, John Lamb will start in the early game while  Keyvius Sampson will take over during the night game.

Milwaukee will send Matt Garza to the mound for the first game and Wily Peralta for the late game.


Marlins SP Jose Fernandez to throw simulated game


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2015) Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez is scheduled to throw a simulated game in the next couple of days, reports Fox Sports.

If all goes well, Fernandez could return by mid-September. A biceps strain has kept him out since early August.


Pirates SP A.J. Burnett expects to return soon


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2015) After throwing a simulated game Friday without any issues, Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett said he expects to return soon, reports Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

"I feel where I need to be," said Burnett, who is on the 15-day disabled list because of a flexor strain in his right elbow. "A lot better than I expected to."

He is set to throw a bullpen session Sunday and then go from there.

"I expect to be throwing soon for the Pirates, because I feel great," he said.


Brewers bring up P Ariel Pena from Triple-A


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2015) The Brewers have promoted right-hander Ariel Pena from Triple-A Colorado Springs, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has reported. He is expected to join the team for its Friday night game in Cincinnati.

The 26-year-old Pena managed a 2-2 record and 1.32 WHIP in 43 appearances for the SkySox. He fanned 83 in 82 2/3 innings.

It remains to be seen how Milwaukee will use Pena, who hurled in both relief and as a starter this year. His last seven outings came in the latter role.


Marlins activate RP Jose Urena, promote INF Donovan Solano


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2015) The Marlins have reinstated reliever Jose Urena from the disabled list and recalled infielder Donovan Solano, per the Miami Herald.

Urena had been out with a bruised left knee. He performed poorly when healthy, posting a 1-5 record and 5.11 ERA this season.

Solano was demoted in early August after recording a terrible slash line of .156/.194/.219 in just 64 at-bats with the Marlins.


Marlins set to give SP Jarred Cosart another chance


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2015) The Marlins have promoted starter Jarred Cosart, who had been dealing with vertigo and pitching in a minor league rehab stint, per the Miami Herald.

Cosart was demoted after a long stretch of poor performances. He returns with a 1-4 record and 5.36 ERA.

The Marlins hope he can revert to his 2014 form, when he went 13-11 with Houston and Miami with a 3.69 ERA.


Padres SP Josh Johnson set to start rehab stint Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2015) Padres starter Josh Johnson, who is coming off Tommy John surgery, will begin a rehab stint Friday with Class A Advanced Lake Elsinore, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

If that appearance goes smoothly, Johnson will pitch another inning for the same team Monday.

Johnson has not pitched in a major league game since the summer of 2013. He has not completed a season without a major injury since 2012.


Padres SP Colin Rea holds his own against Dodgers on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9/4/2015) Padres rookie starter Colin Rea pitched well on Thursday, but was unable to hang around long enough to get a win against the Dodgers. Rea went five innings, allowing two runs on four hits. He walked two and struck out a career-high six batters. He was handed a no-decision in the 10-7 victory.

Rea was staked to an early 4-0 lead after the second inning, and he was able to keep the Dodgers off the board over the first four frames. But he allowed two runs to score in his final inning of work, though he left with a two-run lead.

The bullpen coughed up that lead, costing Rea a chance for his third big-league win. 


Struggles for Dodgers' Mat Latos continue on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9/4/2015) Dodgers starter Mat Latos turned in another subpar performance on Thursday against the Padres. Latos allowed four runs on eight hits over four innings.

Latos gave up a pair of runs in each of the first two innings, which continues a troubling trend for the veteran right-hander. Coming into the game, Latos owned a 5.46 ERA over the first three innings of his starts in 2015.

The Dodgers got Latos off the hook in this one, as they were able to rally back to take a lead in the middle innings. They would wind up losing the game 10-7, however.

Latos has now failed to go at least five innings in each of his last four starts, allowing at least four runs in three of those outings. He is still seeking his first win as a member of the Dodgers.


Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong mashed again in third straight loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2015) One might have thought it couldn't get much worse for Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong. One might have been wrong.

Vogelsong has been downright masterful lately in comparison to the pounding he took Thursday in Colorado. He surrendered eight runs on 11 hits in just three innings for his third consecutive defeat. He walked none and fanned one.

The right-hander yielded a two-run homer to sizzling Carlos Gonzalez in a four-run first inning in which he gave up six hits and it was all downhill from there. 

Vogelsong, who is trying in vain to maintain a rotation spot, has given up 14 runs over his last 11 innings to send his ERA soaring to 4.58.


Rockies SP Chris Rusin tosses second complete game at Coors


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) Rockies left-hander Chris Rusin didn't just beat the Giants on Thursday night. He made history.

Rusin became the first Colorado pitcher to toss two complete games at Coors Field in the same season since Aaron Cook in 2008. He allowed three runs on six hits with one walk and five strikeouts. He threw 69 of 103 pitches for strikes.

Oddly, two of the three runs he allowed came off the bat of opposing pitcher Ryan Vogelsong, who took him yard in the third.

Rusin has four quality starts over his last five outings and has lowered his ERA to 4.78, which is not bad considering he gave up 11 runs in two innings in a start two weeks ago.


PIrates SP Francisco Liriano falls apart in loss to Brewers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) The Pirates had won 11 consecutive games started by southpaw Francisco Liriano when they arrived at the ballpark Thursday in Milwaukee.

Liriano didn't allow them to make it 12. He continued to slump with a weak effort in which he allowed four runs on seven hits in just five innings with five walks and four strikeouts. The walk total was his highest since April 26.

He was fine through four, but a Khris Davis double tallied one in the fifth and a walk, triple and double to start the sixth sent him to the showers.

Liriano now owns a 3.40 ERA, its highest point since May 29. He has given up 19 runs in 32 1/3 innings since the beginning of August.


Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann shines again in beating Pirates


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) Rookie starter Taylor Jungmann continued to be a bright light in a dark season for the Brewers on Thursday against the playoff-bound Pirates.

Jungmann gave up just one run on three hits in six innings to raise his record to 9-5 and shrink his ERA to 2.42. He walked two and whiffed three.

The right-hander escaped a bases-loaded jam in the third, then locked in to retire the next eight batters he faced. A groundout tallied the lone run against him in the fifth.

Jungmann has yielded just one run over his last 12 innings.


Braves' Matt Wisler torched for seven runs in blowout Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9/3/2015) Braves starter Matt Wisler had a rather forgettable outing against the Nationals on Thursday. The rookie right-hander lasted just 1 2/3 innings, allowing seven runs on five hits and three walks. Wisler needed 48 pitches (27 strikes) to record his five outs, en route to the 15-1 blowout loss.

Wisler (5-6, 5.97 ERA) has really struggled since the calendar turned to August. Over his last seven starts, he has allowed 32 earned runs over 31 1/3 innings of work, leading to a gaudy 9.20 ERA. He also owns a 18:20 K:BB ratio over that stretch.


Nationals SP Jordan Zimmermann rides offense to 12th win


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9/3/2015) Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann turned in a solid effort against the Braves on Thursday, and he was backed by an offensive explosion. Zimmermann limited the Braves to just one run on two hits over six innings.

He struck out five and matched a season-high with four walks. He threw 53 of his 87 pitches for strikes in the 15-1 blowout.

Zimmermann (12-8, 3.38 ERA) posted his second consecutive quality start, and the fourth in his last six outings. 


Rockies' Tyler Chatwood done for the year, skipper confirms


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9/3/2015) Rockies pitcher Tyler Chatwood began a rehab assignment with Class A Modesto on Wednesday. Chatwood has been out all season after undergoing Tommy John surgery last July. The right-hander pitched two innings, allowing one run on three hits. He walked two and struck out one, throwing 23 of 42 pitches for strikes.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss did say that Chatwood will not pitch for the Rockies in 2015, according to MLB.com. Chatwood hasn't thrown a big-league pitch since the end of April 2014.


Braves P Manny Banuelos gets another shot at starting Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) The pounding Braves starter Manny Banuelos absorbed in his first outing since returning from an elbow injury has not prevented Fredi Gonzalez from keeping him in the rotation for now.

Gonzalez confirmed that Banuelos will start Sunday in Washington, but will be limited to about 70-75 pitches, per MLB.com.

Banuelos performed well during a three-week stint in July before going down. But he allowed three runs on six hits in just 2 2/3 innings Tuesday against Miami.


Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg on track to face Mets next week


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg threw a successful bullpen session Thursday, manager Matt Williams said.

Strasburg will miss his scheduled start Friday against the Braves due to a back injury, but he remains on track to make his next start against the Mets, per MASNsports.com.


Giants GM Evans says Chris Heston will start Friday at Colorado


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) Giants general manager Bobby Evans said starting pitcher Chris Heston will take the mound Friday against the Rockies.

"We're looking at Chris Heston. Heston will start for us," Evans revealed on KNBR 680-AM on Thursday morning, per CSNBayArea.com. "We're not sure whether the time off held back his best stuff in his last outing, but we're wanting the best of Chris Heston to show up."


Mets say Matt Harvey should be fine, expected to make next start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey did not end up traveling with the team to Miami on Wednesday, according to ESPN. However, the Mets said he "should be fine," and he is expected to join the team Friday

Harvey experienced dehydration and weakness after his start Wednesday against the Phillies, a team spokesman said. He is expected to make his next start Tuesday against the Nationals.


Giants SP Tim Lincecum undergoes hip surgery, done for season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) Giants starting pitcher Tim Lincecum underwent hip surgery Thursday morning and is out for the season, general manager Bobby Evans told CBS Sports Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

The veteran right-hander finishes the season with a 7-4 record and 4.13 ERA through 15 starts. He totaled 60 strikeouts through 76 1/3 innings.


Dodgers' Bolsinger starting Friday to give rotation an extra day of rest


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) Dodgers pitcher Mike Bolsinger will start Friday's game against the Padres, manager Don Mattingly announced after Wednesday's game against the Giants.

"We've been wanting to slip him into the rotation to either move somebody forward or to give someone an extra day," Mattingly said, per MLB.com. "Just if somebody needs a blow, kind of looking at all our guys individually and what's best for them."

Mattingly said they don't plan to skip anyone in the rotation, so all the starters (Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Brett Anderson, Alex Wood and Mat Latos) will get an extra day of rest moving forward.

Bolsinger's last MLB start was July 29. He is 5-3 with a 2.83 ERA in 16 starts this season.

"You can anticipate he's going to be in this rotation for at least a turn," Mattingly said.
