Eugenio Suarez a no-go for Wednesday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) A stiff back that forced Tigers shortstop Eugenio Suarez out of the game Tuesday has also kept him out of the lineup Wednesday against the White Sox.

Suarez, who has just five hits in his last 25 at-bats, owns a decent stat line of .260/.347/.394.


Xander Bogaerts goes deep, can't spark rally


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Red Sox infielder Xander Bogaerts got his bat going late Tuesday against the Blue Jays, but it was not enough in a 4-2 loss.

Bogaerts went 2 for 4 with a pair of strikeouts, and also scored once and drove in one run with his ninth inning solo home run. He has been unable to snap out of his long slump as Bogaerts is hitting just .213/.241/.307 in 75 at-bats during the month of July.  

Bogaerts has failed to live up to expectations as a rookie, with a batting line of just .241/.311/.362 with eight home runs and 26 RBI in 98 games. 


Hamstring problem keeps Marwin Gonzalez out Wednesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) A tight hamstring has prevented Astros shortstop Marwin Gonzalez from taking his place in the lineup for a day game Wednesday after a night game. He is sidelined against Oakland.

Gonzalez homered in the Tuesday loss.


Marwin Gonzalez mashes fifth homer in loss to Athletics


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Astros shortstop Marwin Gonzalez has been on a roll since the All-Star break and he continued rolling Tuesday night.

Gonzalez blasted his fifth home run to open the scoring in the first inning before going hitless the rest of the way. He has hit safely in seven of nine games since the time off with 11 hits in 34 at-bats.


Eugenio Suarez exits game with lower back tightness


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Tigers shortstop Eugenio Suarez was removed from Tuesday's game due to lower back tightness, the team announced.

Suarez singled in his only trip to the plate Tuesday and also committed a throwing error. He is day-to-day moving forward. Suarez has hit .260/.347/.394 with three home runs and 11 RBI in 127 at-bats.


Chris Taylor in, Brad Miller out of Monday lineup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Chris Taylor could be wresting at-bats away from disappointing Brad Miller at shortstop for the Mariners. The former is in the lineup Tuesday against the host Indians. Taylor is starting for the second time in the last three games.

Taylor is 3 for 8 since his promotion. Miller has four hits in his last 25 at-bats and his batting average has sunk to .203. He is also tied for the American League lead in errors at that position with 14.


Francisco Lindor might be on verge of promotion to Indians


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) The conventional wisdom is that veteran Mike Aviles or young Jose Ramirez will assume the starting shortstop job with the Indians if Asdrubal Cabrera is traded at the deadline, as has been rumored. But stud prospect Francisco Lindor could be throwing himself into the conversation.

The 20-year-old Lindor has raised his level of production since his promotion to Triple-A Columbus. He has 10 hits in 32 at-bats with two home runs and four RBI. He has scored seven runs in seven games.

The Indians could also be tempted to bring him up to spur fan interest, though it remains likely they wait until September. They rank second-last in the major leagues in average attendance per game.


Erick Aybar nothing but a singles hitter in July


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) An inability to hit anything but singles has limited the production of Angels second baseman Erick Aybar recently.

Aybar has hit safely in 17 of his last 21 games, but 19 of his 22 hits during that stretch have been singles. He has no triples or home runs in that period. He has just five runs scored and six RBI since July 6. Aybar owns a decent .281/.317/.403 stat line on the season. His slugging percentage has fallen 30 points in July, but he has been productive overall in 2014 with 50 runs scored and 51 RBI.


Derek Jeter climbs to seventh on all-time hits list


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter reached another milestone Monday night against the Rangers, cranking out two singles and a double. He finished 3 for 4 with a walk in his team's 4-2 defeat.

With his three hits, Jeter moved to seventh place all-time on the hits list. He has 3,420 hits and is now 10 hits away from surpassing Honus Wagner for sixth on the list. He owns a .278/.333/.329 slash line with two homers and 27 RBI in 374 at-bats this season.

Report: Blue Jays targeting Asdrubal Cabrera


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Indians veteran shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera is on the radar of the Blue Jays as the trading deadline approaches, per Fox Sports. He would play second base, a spot with which he became familiar early in his career, as Jose Reyes is locked in at shortstop.

Cleveland has shown no inclination to sign Cabrera with prized prospect Francisco Lindor on the way. Lindor has been raking at Triple-A Columbus after his recent promotion. Cabrera has raised his trade value by hitting well lately, but he is tied for the American League lead in errors with 14 and has limited range.


Adam Rosales leaves the yard for the first time this season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Rangers infielder Adam Rosales unleashed his first home run of the season Sunday night at home against the Athletics.

Rosales took starter Scott Kazmir deep for a two-run home run in the second inning. He finished 1 for 3 with a run scored and an RBI in a 9-3 victory. He owns a .250/.333/.417 slash line with five RBI in 24 at-bats.

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/27/2014) Whether because of poor matchups, unfavorable platoon splits or the fact they're just plain cold, Yan Gomes, Allen Craig, Josh Rutledge, Lonnie Chisenhall, Andrelton Simmons and Khris Davis are "sits" for Fantasy Week 18 (July 28-Aug. 3)

Find out the "why" for each in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Hitters to start in Week 18


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/27/2014) Need a sleeper hitter for Fantasy Week 18 (July 28-Aug. 3)? You won't find one much better than Austin Jackson. Of course, he's not the only "start" for the week. Stephen Vogt, Mike Napoli, Emilio Bonifacio, Chase Headley and Jed Lowrie also fit the bill.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Indians haven't talked about promotion for Francisco Lindor


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Indians shortstop prospect Francisco Lindor hit a pair of home runs Saturday for Triple-A Columbus. The 20-year-old infielder is batting .333 (6 for 18) with one stolen base, three walks, four extra-base hits and five runs in five games since being promoted from Double-A Akron.

Indians manager Terry Francona said Sunday the team has not had any internal discussions about bringing Lindor to the majors later this season, per MLB.com.

"We haven't even talked about it," Francona said. "He's on a pretty fast track right now. ... I think the organization views Lindor as a mature enough kid that he'll probably handle whatever. So, I think [being in Triple-A] is good for him. He's a pretty young kid, but he's a very mature kid."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez went 2 for 5 with a two-run home run in his team's 7-0 win over the Twins Saturday.

Ramirez has started to up his game in the second half, and he has managed to hit home runs in back-to-back games while turning in multihit performances in four of his last five. He has hit .285/.322/.408 with 10 home runs, 46 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 404 at-bats.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Report: Jorge Polanco likely victim of pitcher promotion


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2014) Shortstop Jorge Polanco made the huge jump Thursday from Class A to the Twins, but it appears he will be heading back down to the minors Saturday to make room for promoted pitcher Logan Darnell, according to MLB.com.

Polanco was playing for Minnesota in June - just days before his 21st birthday - and smacked two hits in five at-bats.


Hamstring still a problem for Marwin Gonzalez


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2014) Though he was able to start in Thursday's game against the Athletics, Astros infielder Marwin Gonzalez was ultimately forced out due to lingering soreness.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Derek Jeter little more than singles hitter in swan song season


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2014) One might have expected that the production of 40-year-old future Hall of Fame shortstop Derek Jeter was destined to slip this season - and it has.

Jeter has been serviceable for the Yankees with a stat line of .270/.325/.320, numbers that pale in comparison to those he achieved even two years ago. He has just three hits in his last 17 at-bats with just one extra-base hit since July 1. He has not homered in more than a month.

Suarez has struggled in the month of July, hitting just .240 with seven runs scored in 15 games. He is still hitting .263/.351/.407 through the first 38 games of his career.
