Latest Updates

 

Mets 1B Lucas Duda crushes three solo home runs on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:43 pm ET) First baseman Lucas Duda was responsible for all the Mets' offense in the 7-3 loss to the Padres on Wednesday. Duda busted out his first career three-homer game, blasting a trio of solo bombs over the right-field wall.

Duda is locked in at the plate right now, as he has gone deep seven times in his last four games. 


SP Mike Foltynewicz hard-luck loser for Braves


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(10:43 pm ET) Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz pitched well in a spot start, but two mistakes cost him in a 2-0 loss to the Orioles on Wednesday. 

In his first start since June 14, Foltynewicz struck out eight batters over six innings, but allowed solo home runs in the third and fourth innings for the only blemishes on his ledger. 

Foltynewicz, who was recalled from Triple-A to fill in for injured Manny Banuelos, falls to 3-3. It's unclear whether he will make another start. 


Mets SP Bartolo Colon gets blasted by Padres on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:38 pm ET) Mets starter Bartolo Colon got roughed up by the Padres in Wednesday's 7-3 loss. Colon was charged for six runs on 10 hits in just 2 1/3 innings, his shortest outing in his tenure with the Mets. 

Colon (9-10, 4.96ERA) struggled right out of the gate in this one, as he allowed two runs in each of the first three innings, including third-inning home runs to Justin Upton and Yonder Alonso. 

Colon was coming off his best start of the year, but that came after a couple of sub-par outings for the veteran right-hander. Colon is 0-4 with a 6.99 ERA over his past four starts.


Padres SP Tyson Ross rides offensive support to seventh win


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:29 pm ET) Padres starter Tyson Ross picked up his seventh win of the season in Wednesday's 7-3 victory over the Mets. Ross allowed one run on two hits over five innings. He issued four walks and struck out five, throwing 47 of his 83 pitches for strikes. 

The only run Ross gave up was a solo home run by Lucas Duda, snapping a streak of 100 innings without issuing a longball for Ross. But he was lifted after five innings with the Padres already ahead by five runs.

Interim manager Pat Murphy said Ross' thigh stiffened up after taking a comebacker, but he could have pitched longer if necessary, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune

Ross (7-8, 3.38 ERA) is 2-1 with a 2.81 ERA over his past six starts.


Orioles RP Zach Britton earns one-out save


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(10:27 pm ET) It was a quick night of work for Orioles closer Zach Britton, who retired one batter Wednesday to pick up his 26th save and preserve his team's 2-0 win over the Braves.

Britton has converted three saves in his last five appearances, and has only allowed one run over his last 10 outings. Britton only needed five pitches to record the game's final out. 


SP Chris Tillman nearly goes the distance in Orioles victory


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(10:20 pm ET) Chris Tillman was one out from pitching a complete-game shutout, but had to settle for a victory as he was dominant for the Orioles in a 2-0 win over the Braves on Wednesday. 

Tillman threw 95 pitches and allowed four hits -- only one of which was an extra-base hit -- while walking none and striking out two. 

Tillman has now won six straight decisions over a stretch from June 5 that has seen him raise his record to 8-7 and lower his ERA from 5.94 to 4.35.


Rangers closing in on deal for Phillies' Cole Hamels


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:16 pm ET) The Rangers are on the verge of acquiring left-handed starter Cole Hamels from the Phillies, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports. 

Hamels as been the source of many trade rumors over the past several weeks, with teams like the Astros, Dodgers and the Yankees all reportedly having shown interest in the three-time All-Star. 

Hamels tossed a no-hitter against the Cubs in his most recent start on Saturday.

The deal is not yet complete, and it is not known what other player or players are involved in the potential trade.


Blue Jays' Troy Tulowitzki hits two-run home run in team debut


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:09 pm ET) Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki made quite an impression with his new team on Wednesday. Playing in his first game with the Blue Jays, Tulowitzki went 3 for 5 with a pair of doubles and a two-run home run and three RBI in the 8-2 win over the Phillies.

Tulowitzki was batting leadoff for the first time since his rookie year in 2006. It's the first time he ever started a game in the lead-off position. 

But regardless of where he was batting, Tulowitzki had a great night for his new club, as he blasted his 13th home run in the second inning. 


Marlins SP Tom Koehler victimized by HR in loss


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(10:08 pm ET) Tom Koehler was hurt once again by an old adversary, as the Marlins starter made another mistake to Washington's Bryce Harper, who delivered the big blow in a 7-2 Miami defeat.

Koehler had given up just two runs through four innings, but ran into trouble in the fifth when he allowed back-to-back singles to Yunel Escobar and Jayson Werth. Harper followed with a titanic three-run homer into the second deck -- it's the fourth time Koehler has allowed a homer to Harper this season. 

Koehler (8-7) has now lost three of his last four decisions despite his ERA dropping from 3.52 to 3.38.


Phillies' Jerome Williams struggles against Blue Jays on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:02 pm ET) Phillies right-hander Jerome Williams had a sub-par outing against the Blue Jays on Wednesday night. Williams, making his second start since returning from the disabled list, allowed four runs on 10 hits over 4 2/3 innings. He threw 49 of his 75 pitches for strikes in the 8-2 loss.

Williams (3-8, 6.36 ERA) allowed a two-run home run to new Blue Jay Troy Tulowitzki in the third inning. Two more runs would come across to score in the fifth before Williams was lifted from the game. 

The veteran hurler was better in his previous start, allowing three runs in six innings during a win against the Cubs. But overall, Williams has struggled for the better part of the season. He has allowed at least four earned runs in eight of his 16 starts in 2015. 


Nationals SP Doug Fister steady in victory


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(10:00 pm ET) Nationals starter Doug Fister put together a consistent start Wednesday, going six solid innings to pick up just his fourth victory of the season. 

Fister scattered just four hits, allowing two early runs before his teammates provided offensive help. Fister utilized his control, walking only one batter while striking out four. 

Fister had lost five of his previous six starts, allowing 26 runs over that stretch. 


Nationals OF Bryce Harper crushes two homers in victory


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(9:56 pm ET) Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper jumped back into the National League home run lead, blasting two upper-deck shots to give him 29 on the season and Washington a 7-2 win Wednesday. 

Harper continued his terrorization of Marlins starter Tom Koehler, hammering a three-run shot into the second deck of Marlins Park in the fifth inning, his fifth home run off Koehler. 

Harper added another solo shot in the eighth inning, this one again well over 400 feet. Harper now has 68 RBIs on the season and is hitting .335, third in the NL. 


Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey wins back-to-back starts


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9:56 pm ET) Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey was terrific in his outing against the Phillies on Wednesday. The veteran knuckleballer allowed a pair of unearned runs on seven hits over eight innings. Dickey walked one and struck out four in the 8-2 victory.

Dickey (5-10, 4.27 ERA) shutout the Phillies over the first six innings in this one. But a pair of errors led to single runs in the seventh and the eighth. 

This was Dickey's finest outing this season, as it was the first time he did not allow an earned run. The right-hander is 2-4 with a 3.00 ERA over his past seven starts.


Mets INF Wilmer Flores heading to Brewers in three-player deal


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9:43 pm ET) Mets infielder Wilmer Flores has been traded to the Brewers. The Mets will receive center fielder Carlos Gomez in exchange for Flores and starter Zack Wheeler, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports.

Flores, who was signed by the Mets as a 16-year-old in 2007, is in the midst of his third season in the big leagues. He entered play on Wednesday with a .249 batting average, 10 home runs and 40 RBI in 92 games for the Mets. He has seen time at shortstop and second base, though he looked much more comfortable at second. 

Neither team has officially announced the trade at this point.


Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval leaves game with dehydration


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(9:39 pm ET) Pablo Sandoval left Wednesday's game against the White Sox in the sixth inning with what the Red Sox described as dehydration, per the Boston Herald

Sandoval was 0-for-1 with a walk when he left. He was replaced in the lineup by Josh Rutledge. Sandoval is hitting .262 with eight homers this season. 


Mets to send Zack Wheeler to Brewers in three-player deal


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9:32 pm ET) Mets starter Zack Wheeler has been dealt to the Brewers as part of the deal that is sending center fielder Carlos Gomez to New York. The Mets will be sending Wheeler and infielder Wilmer Flores to Milwaukee, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman confirms.

Wheeler, 25, was originally drafted in the first round by the Giants in 2009. The Mets acquired in him in 2011 for Carlos Beltran. Wheeler made his big-league debut in 2013 and has gone 18-16 with a 3.50 ERA over his tenure with the Mets.

He is currently on the disabled list after undergoing Tommy John surgery late in the spring. He is not expected to return until the middle of next season. 

The teams have not offically announced the deal at this point.


Mets to acquire CF Carlos Gomez from Brewers


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9:22 pm ET) The Mets and Brewers have agreed on a deal that would send center fielder Carlos Gomez to New York, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports.

In exchange, the Mets would send right-hander Zack Wheeler and infielder Wilmer Flores to the Brewers, according to the New York Post

Gomez was originally signed by the Mets as an amateur free agent back in 2002. He played in 58 games with the Mets in 2007. He hit .232 that year.

In 2008, he was sent to Minnesota in the deal that sent Johan Santana to Queens. He was later traded to Milwaukee in a deal in 2009, and he has been there ever since. 

He was an All-Star in 2013 and 2014 and won a Gold Glove in '13. This year, he is batting .266 with eight home runs for the Brewers.

Gomez is currently signed through the 2016 season. Neither team has officially announced the deal as of yet.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8:53 pm ET) Mariners first baseman Logan Morrison exited Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks in the seventh inning due to an injured thumb. Morrison was 0 for 3 with a strikeout before being lifted for a defensive replacement.

Morrison is considered day-to-day, according to MLB.com. The Mariners have not released further details pertaining to the injury.


Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg goes four in rehab start


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8:50 pm ET) Stephen Strasburg made his first rehab start Wednesday since going on the disabled list with an oblique injury, tossing four innings of work for Triple-A Syracuse. 

Strasburg gave up three earned runs while striking out five hitters. Strasburg (5-5) has a 5.16 ERA with 63 strikeouts and 18 walks in 61 innings this season for the Nationals. 


Cardinals 3B Matt Holliday limps off field against Reds


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8:38 pm ET) Cardinals third baseman Matt Holliday limped off the field after hitting into an inning-ending double play in the first inning on Wednesday against the Reds, per FOX Sports.

Holliday suffered a right quad injury that forced him out of the game. The Cardinals said they would provide an update on the severity of the injury on Thursday, per MLB.com. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch said that Holliday suffered a quad strain, which is a tear, and the same injury Holliday suffered earlier in the year. 

Once Holliday got to the Cardinals' dugout he went to the floor and was visibly in pain.


Athletics RP Pat Venditte to throw rehab games Saturday, Sunday


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8:17 pm ET) Athletics relief pitcher Pat Venditte will throw for Triple-A Nashville on Saturday and Sunday as a part of his recovery from a shoulder injury that landed him on the 15-day disabled list, according to SportsNet California.

Venditte will be re-evaluated after throwing the rehab games.


Report: Mariners move top prospect D.J. Peterson to Triple-A


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8:13 pm ET) The Mariners have made the decision to promote top prospect D.J. Peterson to Triple-A Tacoma, according to a report from SeattlePI.com. 

Peterson, the 12th overall pick in the 2013 draft, didn't light it up at Double-A Jackson, putting up a .223/.290/.346 slash line with seven home runs and 44 RBIs, but started to hit better in the second half, hitting .259 with three homers and 13 RBIs in 29 games. 

The Mariners had hoped to fast-track Peterson to the majors, perhaps by the end of this season, but the 23-year-old will have to produce at Triple-A first. 


Blue Jays' Jose Bautista able to start as DH on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8:09 pm ET) Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista is good to go for Wednesday's game against the Phillies, as he is in the starting lineup. Bautista left Tuesday's games due to a cramp, but he was never overly concerned about the issue.

He is the designated hitter on Wednesday, and it is not yet known when Bautista will return to the field.


Cubs C Miguel Montero (thumb) says he's close to returning


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8:05 pm ET) Catcher Miguel Montero, who has been on the disabled list since July 17 with a sprained left thumb, will see a specialist on Thursday and travel with the team to Milwaukee in the hopes of playing this weekend, per ESPN.com. 

"I can play," Montero said. "It won't be 100 percent until after the season."

Montero's return would give the Cubs some lineup flexibility given that rookie catcher Kyle Schwarber has hit well since being promoted to the majors. Schwarber can play in the outfield, giving Chicago a stronger lineup. 


Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) not starting Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8:05 pm ET) Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis is out of the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Phillies. Travis left Tuesday's game with a shoulder injury and it is possible that he lands on the disabled list, though nothing has been confirmed yet.

Travis did spend significant time on the DL with a similar shoulder injury earlier this year, so there is some concern there. Ryan Goins is getting the start at the keystone position on Wednesday.
