Jed Lowrie sets career mark
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:34 am ET) Athletics shortstop Jed Lowrie has produced a career-high five straight multi-hit games. He's gone 2 for 4 in each, raising his average to .234. In that span, Lowrie has scored five runs and driven in two.

Despite his poor average, Lowrie's 23.7 percent line-drive rate is his best since his rookie year, notes MLB.com.

"Literally everything is exactly the same, except the hits weren't falling," Lowrie said before Wednesday's game. "It still is a head-scratcher."


Scott Kazmir deadly in the daytime
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:28 am ET) Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir, who faces the Giants on Thursday afternoon, has been utterly dominant in day games. He's 4-0 with a 1.09 ERA in six afternoon starts. For the season, Kazmir is 10-3 with a 2.53 ERA in 18 starts.

Rangers impressed with Roman Mendez
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:15 am ET) Rangers reliever Roman Mendez, who made his major-league debut Tuesday night with two scoreless innings against the Astros, became the third pitcher in Rangers history to throw at least two innings without allowing a hit in his debut, reports MLB.com.

"They said he was throwing strikes, getting his slider across the plate, and that's what he did [Tuesday] night -- attacked the zone," manager Ron Washington said. "Now I didn't know he threw it 97 [mph]. ... When he popped 97 last night, I asked [pitching coach] Mike [Maddux], 'He throws 97?' He said yeah."


Michael Pineda to throw bullpen session
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:00 am ET) Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda, who continues to deal with shoulder inflammation, is scheduled to throw a bullpen session later this week, reports MLB.com. However, Pineda is not expected to return until mid-August at the earliest, the report said.

Danny Santana headed for rehab stint during All-Star break
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:54 am ET) Twins rookie shortstop Danny Santana, who's on the disabled list with a bone bruise in his left knee, likely will go on a rehab assignment during the All-Star break, reports MLB.com. The hope is Santana will return to the Twins for the homestand starting July 18.


Joe Beimel has longest scoreless streak in AL
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:50 am ET) Mariners lefty reliever Joe Beimel has not allowed a run in his last 17 2/3 innings, the longest active scoreless streak in the American League, reports MLB.com. He was last chaged with a run April 26.

Beimel, 37, has stranded 13 of 15 inherited runners and is 2-1 with a 1.30 ERA in 30 games.

"He's been real good. I've been very pleased. Joe has pitched in a lot of big games in his career," manager Lloyd McClendon said. "I think he's one of the reasons our bullpen is as good as it is. His numbers withstanding, what he brings to that bullpen is experience and gives it a calming effect down there."


Kristopher Negron up as injury insurance
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:45 am ET) The Reds purchased the contract of infielder Kris Negron from Triple-A Louisville Thursday, to provide some insurance with various players injured.

Negron appeared in four games with the Reds in 2012, but that is his only MLB experience. The 28-year-old was hitting .269/.328/.406 at Louisville this season. 


Carlos Conteras sent back to Louisville
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:39 am ET) The Reds optioned pitcher Carlos Contreras to Triple-A Louisville Thursday, to make room for the recall of infielder Kristopher Negron.

Contreras appeared in three games out of the bullpen for the Reds, allowing one run in 4 1/3 innings.  


Jayson Werth reaches three times, homers in win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:35 am ET) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth put together a big performance Wednesday, in a 6-2 win over the Orioles.

Werth reached base three times in the win, the third time he has done so in his last five games. He went 2 for 3 with a walk, and both of his hits went for extra bases. Werth drove in one run in the first inning with a double, and added a solo home run in the seventh, finishing with two runs and two RBI.

Werth has raised his batting average nearly 15 points over the last seven games, and is now hitting .279/.364/.421 in 330 at-bats overall.  


Alex Avila showing signs offensively
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:29 am ET) Tigers catcher Alex Avila could be poised for a strong second half, manager Brad Ausmus told the Detroit Free Press. Avila batted .275 over a 25-game stretch before going hitless Wednesday.

"He’s starting to swing the bat better," Ausmus said. "We were just talking about that in the coaches room. He’s been swinging the bat better, and I know he had a strong second half last year. We’re hoping he’s trending towards that again, because that would be a big boost to the bottom half of the lineup and the left side."

For the year, Avila is hitting .226 with six homers and 21 RBI in 212 at-bats.
