Sizzling Jays mash Tigers SP Alfredo Simon for four dingers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:58 pm ET) Tigers starter Alfredo Simon has been getting clobbered since mid-June. And he was pitching Sunday on the road against the explosive Blue Jays.

It was not a recipe for success.

Simon spent much of his afternoon watching baseballs travel over the fence. Toronto slugged four home runs against him. He allowed six runs on five hits in six innings with two walks and two strikeouts.

Blasts by Josh Donaldson and Edwin Encarnacion got Simon off to a bad start in the first, then taters by Kevin Pillar and Russell Martin added to his misery.

Simon has just one quality start over his last six outings. His 5.09 ERA is a season-high.


Cubs RP Neil Ramirez starting rehab with Double-A Tennessee
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:25 pm ET) Cubs reliever Neil Ramirez is set to begin a rehab assignment at Double-A Tennessee, per MLB.com.

Ramirez, who landed on the disabled list a month ago with abdominal soreness, has pitched in just 13 games this season and compiled a 3.12 ERA.


Brewers P Matt Garza remains in rotation for now
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:16 pm ET) A bad year has turned into a terrible one for Brewers veteran starter Matt Garza over his last three outings, but Craig Counsell is not ready to remove him from the rotation.

He is ready, however, to talk with Garza about his struggles. The right-hander has allowed 19 runs over his last 13 1/3 innings to raise his ERA to a rather disturbing 5.56, which ranks second-worst in the National League among qualifying starters.

Garza remains listed as the probable pitcher for Thursday against visiting Pittsburgh.

"We haven't sat down with Matt yet," Counsell told MLB.com. "We need to do that. But the way we're listed now is the way we are right now. ... The probables are accurate."

Garza owned a 3.63 ERA in 100 starts over the previous four years.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(2:12 pm ET) Cardinals starter Lance Lynn, who rolled his ankle during his start Saturday, did not have the injury taped up Sunday and said he was ready to make his next start, per USA Today
