Jerome Williams set to get start Friday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:43 am ET) The Rangers have tabbed pitcher Jerome Williams to start Friday against the Athletics, after Nick Tepesch had to be scratched from his scheduled start.

The Rangers will purchase Williams' contract from Triple-A Round Rock prior to the start, though it is not yet clear what the corresponding roster move will be. Williams has not started in the majors since 2012, and has a 6.10 ERA in 10 1/3 innings at Round Rock this season. 


Blake Beavan back in action - for not for Mariners
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:29 am ET) The Mariners have activated right-hander Blake Beavan from the 60-day disabled list and dispatched him to Triple-A Tacoma. He has recovered from a shoulder injury that has limited him to one start this season for Seattle. But there is no place for him in its rotation.

David Ortiz set to get back checked Friday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:24 am ET) Red Sox prolific designated hitter David Ortiz will have his ailing back evaluated Friday before a determination is made about possible missed time, per the Boston Herald.

Ortiz was removed in the ninth inning of the Thursday loss to Toronto after experiencing spasms in the middle of his back on a check swing. He received treatment after the game.

"We haven't talked about (missing time)," Ortiz said. "... Hopefully it's nothing serious." Ortiz added that he felt a "little pop or something" in his back Wednesday, but the discomfort disappeared, allowing him to play Thursday.


No timetable set for return of Michael Bourn
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:16 am ET) Terry Francona has provided no timetable for the return of Indians center fielder Michael Bourn, who has been out nearly three weeks with a strained left hamstring.

"When he's ready to play, he's ready to play," Francona told the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Bourn has proven disappointing again after signing a free agent contract in 2013. Extensive hamstring problems have played a role in him being limited to seven stolen bases. His .267/.316/.379 stat line is nearly identical to the one he compiled a year ago.


Danny Santana hits rare homer in loss
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:06 am ET) Twins outfielder Danny Santana provided the lone offensive contribution in the team's 5-2 loss to the White Sox Thursday.

Santana had just one hit in the game, but he made it count, clubbing a two-run home run in the eighth inning in a failed effort to spark a rally. He went 1 for 3 overall with one strikeout in addition to his two RBI.

Santana hasn't provided much power this season, as he is hitting .325/.361/.465 with three home runs in 157 at-bats.


Slumping Eugenio Suarez scores twice in win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:01 am ET) The Tigers got a solid contribution from infielder Eugenio Suarez Thursday, in a 6-4 win over the Angels.

Suarez reached base three times in the win, and made the most of his time on. He scored two runs and stole one base while going 2 for 3 with a walk.

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. 


Delmon Young's homer leads Orioles to win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9:49 am ET) Orioles outfielder Delmon Young showed some rare power Thursday, as he carried the team to a 4-0 win over the Mariners.  

Young started his first game in more than two weeks, and made it count. He went 2 for 4 with a home run, and drove in three runs with a third-inning home run, his fourth of the season.

The Home run was Young's first since June 16. He is hitting .317/.344/.455 with four home runs and 14 RBI in 123 at-bats.


Chris Carter's solo homer all Astros can muster
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9:44 am ET) Astros designated hitter Chris Carter provided the team's lone offensive contribution Thursday, in a 13-1 loss to the Athletics.

Carter went 1 for 4 in the loss, clubbing a solo home run to account for the Astros' only run. He moved into ninth place in the American League with his 20th home run, and is now hitting .213/.288/.480 in 296 at-bats.  


Rene Rivera homers in blowout win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9:41 am ET) Padres catcher Rene Rivera put together a strong performance Thursday, in a 13-3 win over the Cubs.

Rivera went 3 for 5 in the blowout win, and played a big role with his bat. Rivera went 3 for 5 with three RBI, including one with his fifth inning home run and then two more with a single in the sixth. He also came around to score twice in the win.

Rivera has been a solid option for the Padres behind the plate this season, hitting .228/.286/.436 with seven home runs in 149 at-bats. 


Garrett Richards suffers first loss since May 30
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:31 am ET) Angels pitcher Garrett Richards was not at his best on Thursday against the Tigers, dropping to 11-3 on the year. The right-hander permitted four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings of a 6-4 defeat.

Richards dropped his first decision since May 30. Over his last four starts covering 28 1/3 innings, Richards has allowed six earned runs. He owns a 2.62 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP over 21 starts (137 1/3 innings). He will look to get back on track Wednesday at Baltimore.
