Report: Dodgers may trade top prospect for nonrental


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) The Dodgers "haven't flat out said no" to trading one of their top three prospects for a player, as long as that player isn't due to be a free agent after the season, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Previous reports have said that outfielder Joc Pederson, third baseman Corey Seager and pitcher Julio Urias were off the table in trade talks, but that only applies to a rental like Jon Lester. The Phillies and Rays may be able to get the Dodgers to part with at least one of the team's top prospects in a deal for Cole Hamels or David Price, respectively, though neither trade has been reported to be in the works.


Jordy Mercer slugs seventh home run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer went 1 for 3 with a two-run home run in his team's 7-5 loss to the Giants Wednesday.

Mercer has managed to pick up a base hit in five straight games, but Wednesday's home run was his first since June 21. He has hit .254/.296/.370 with seven home runs and 35 RBI in 335 at-bats.


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.


Rockies call up Rob Scahill, option Cristhian Adames


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) The Rockies called up pitcher Rob Scahill and optioned infielder Cristhian Adames Wednesday.

The team went through a 16-inning game Tuesday night, so extra help in the bullpen was needed for Wednesday's game. Adames went 0 for 3 in his debut Tuesday before being sent back down. Scahill has given up four earned runs in 5 1/3 innings over three appearances with the Rockies.


Josh Rutledge out of lineup Wednesday, available in emergency


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Rockies shortstop Josh Rutledge is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Cubs, but he is available in an emergency situation, MLB.com reports.

Rutledge missed Monday and Tuesday due to an illness, and it seems like he's getting better, as the team optioned a reserve infielder Wednesday. He has hit .307/.358/.486 with three home runs and 19 RBI in 140 at-bats.


Didi Gregorius stays hot with two-run blast in Cincinnati


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Diamondbacks shortstop Didi Gregorius remained on his most impressive run of the season Wednesday in Cincinnati.

Gregorius gave his team a 5-1 lead with his fourth homer, a two-run blast in the ninth inning. He also singled and stole a base.

The second-year player has nine hits in his last 23 at-bats with two home runs.


Rockies, Mets blockbuster unlikely to come together


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) The Rockies and Mets have gotten together a few times to discuss major deal involving Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez, but CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports Wednesday any move is unlikely to come before Thursday's deadline.

"Unless we do speed dating, I think that's safe to say [that any deal will wait until winter]," one person involved in the talks told Heyman.

Gonzalez and Tulowitzki are both under long-term deals with the Rockies, but the team's struggles have pushed them into considering a move. The Mets would likely have to part with much of their young pitching talent to get the deal done, but that will likely have to wait until the offseason. The report also indicates a deal for Gonzalez is more likely than Tulowitzki, once talks resume after Thursday. 


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.


Jimmy Rollins homers, scores twice in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins made an impact Tuesday, in a 6-0 win over the Mets.

Rollins reached base twice and scored each time, and he did all the work on one of them. He slugged a solo home run in the third inning, and then scored following a walk in the seventh, finishing 1 for 4 in the win.

Rollins' overall average has tumbled all the way to .239 during the month of July, but he has remained productive while hitting six of his 14 home runs so far in the month. 


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.


Rockies summon Cristhian Adames


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) The Rockies recalled infielder Cristhian Adames from Triple-A Colorado Springs Tuesday.

Adames is needed with Josh Rutledge out due to an upper-respiratory infection. He has hit .276/.332/.351 with two home runs, 40 RBI and seven stolen bases in 348 at-bats between Double-A and Triple-A.


Josh Rutledge misses second straight start Tuesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Rockies shortstop Josh Rutledge was held out of the lineup Tuesday against the Cubs due to an upper respiratory infection, according to The Denver Post. It was the second straight start he missed.

Jason Lane taken off roster as Everth Cabrera comes off DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday. Pitcher Jason Lane was designated for assignment to clear a roster spot.

Troy Tulowitzki to return by mid-August?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who underwent a dry needling procedure Monday for his injured left hip flexor, said he will get back to movement activities Wednesday, according to MLB.com.

It is believed Tulowitzki might be back by the middle of August, but for now he is taking his recovery day to day.

"It wasn't an easy process -- a tough day for me," Tulowitzki said in a telephone interview Tuesday morning. "But I feel all right. The plan is to get back to starting movement, see how it feels.

"(Wednesday) I'll start moving around and doing some stuff. I'll be jogging and walking a little bit -- obviously, it's not baseball activity, just getting moving to see how I feel."


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.


Report: Rockies evaluating players from three teams


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) While it seems unlikely the Rockies will trade shortstop Troy Tulowitzki by Thursday's non-waiver deadline, MLB.com reports the team spent much of Monday evaluating major-league players and prospects from the Mets' organization. New York has been a team linked to Tulowitzki rumors in the last week.

MLB.com also reports the Rockies spent time evaluating players within the Cardinals and Angels organizations. They are considered two teams with money and major-league-ready players that would intrigue the Rockies' front office, if they were to inquire about a trade.


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.


Jordy Mercer emerging as option to bat second vs. LHPs


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer was slotted second in the batting order Monday against the Giants for the third time this season and second time in three games.

Mercer has become an option to hit second when a left-handed starter is on the hill, as was the case Monday with Giants hurler Madison Bumgarner.

"I think he gives us, against left-handed pitching, probably the best dynamic in that spot right now," manager Clint Hurdle said, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "From last season into this season, he’s been one of our better hitters against left-handed pitching. He’s a guy we’ve used to play some small ball with, a guy who’s shown an ability to barrel the ball. He’s leading the team in RBIs against left-handed pitching in probably less at-bats than the other guys had."

Mercer is batting .319 with a .351 on-base percentage, .458 slugging percentage and .809 OPS in 40 games against lefties this season.


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.

Josh Rutledge dealing with illness


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Rockies infielder Josh Rutledge was scratched from the starting lineup Monday against the Cubs because of an illness, the Denver Post reports. Rutledge is hitting .307 over 140 at-bats. He'll look to return Tuesday in Chicago.

Josh Rutledge scratched Monday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Rockies infielder Josh Rutledge has been scratched from Monday's lineup.

It's unclear why Rutledge was scratched at this time. Charlie Culberson will take his place at shortstop. Rutledge is hitting .307 over 140 at-bats. 


Chris Owings still hasn't taken live batting practice


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Diamondbacks shortstop Chris Owings still hasn't taken live batting practice, according to MLB.com.

Owings has been sidelined since June 25 with a shoulder injury. He's been slow to recover. There's currently no timetable for his return. Owings was hitting .277/.313/.458 over 238 at-bats.
