Nolan Arenado blasts off for first time since May 5
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:32 am ET) Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado has been struggling to hit for power since returning from a thumb injury, but he didn't struggle in the third inning of a Tuesday night loss to Washington.

Arenado slammed his first homer since May 5, a two-run job against Jordan Zimmermann. Despite the power outage, Arenado does have nine hits in his last eight games.


Adam LaRoche breaks slump with big game in Colorado
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:24 am ET) Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche continued his bounce-back season Tuesday night by playing hero in a victory at Colorado. He slugged a three-run homer in the seventh inning to break a 4-4 tie. The blast proved to be the game-winner.

LaRoche, who also singled, owns a solid .275/.381/.453. His fine game against the Rockies ended a 2-for-23 slide.


Chad Qualls retires Oakland 1-2-3 for another save
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:15 am ET) Astros closer Chad Qualls continued to shut down team after team Tuesday night in Oakland by nailing down his 11th save.

Qualls has just three saves since June 9, but only due to a lack of opportunity. He got the Athletics in order in the 12th inning, striking out Coco Crisp to end it.


Report: Asdrubal Cabrera not DL-bound
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:01 am ET) Despite his absence again from the Indians lineup Tuesday, shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera is not yet destined for the disabled list with a back ailment, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, which is further reporting that prized prospect Francisco Lindor would not be promoted if he does land on the DL.

Cabrera left Monday's game with back spasms. His injury is poorly timed for himself and for the team, which could seek to trade him at the deadline. Cabrera is a free agent after this season and Cleveland will most assuredly not try to keep him.


Kyle Gibson out, Anthony Swarzak in as Wednesday starter
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:29 am ET) Twins starter Kyle Gibson has been scratched from his Wednesday start against visiting Cleveland due to back stiffness. Anthony Swarzak is set to move from the bullpen to replace him.

Swatzak has been a bit of a disappointment this season with a 4.34 ERA in 30 appearances. He posted a 2.91 ERA a year ago while working a major league-high 96 innings. The right-hander has been particularly poor against the Indians, who have battered him for five runs on nine hits in 1 2/3 innings in 2014.


Scott Kazmir strikes out six in no-decision vs. Astros
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:56 am ET) Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir wasn't a factor in Tuesday's decision, giving up two runs (one earned) on seven hits and one walk in seven innings and striking out six in his team's extra-innings game against the Astros.

Kazmir wasn't able to pick up his third straight win despite holding the opposition to one earned run or fewer for the fourth straight start. The Oakland pitcher has been at the top of his game over the last few months, aside from an ugly seven-run outing in late June. Kazmir owns a 2.32 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 114:28 K:BB ratio in 124 1/3 innings. He's slated to take on the Rangers Sunday.


Brett Oberholtzer gives up two runs in no-decision Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:56 am ET) Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer didn't factor into the decision Tuesday after surrendering two earned runs on six hits and two walks in seven innings and not recording a strikeout in his team's extra-innings game against the A's.

Oberholtzer was handed a 2-0 lead after the top of the third innind, but he gave back one run in the bottom of the frame and the other on a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning. He has given up two runs or fewer in five of his last six starts, but he hasn't earned a win since rejoining the team in late June. Oberholtzer owns a 4.32 ERA and 51:19 K:BB ratio in 77 innings. He'll likely be taken out of the rotation if Collin McHugh is ready to return this weekend.


Michael Wacha may not pitch again this season
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:45 am ET) Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha admitted before Tuesday's game that team doctors told him he might not pitch again this season after discovering a shoulder "fissure," the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Wacha had an MRI and CT scan over the weekend but wasn't cleared to resume throwing Monday. He'll rest for a few more weeks before being re-evaluated. A best-case scenario would find Wacha getting a couple of starts in September, and the pitcher remains optimistic he'll be able to return before the end of the season.


Mike Trout slugs 24th home run Tuesday vs. Orioles
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:41 am ET) Angels outfielder Mike Trout provided his team's only offense Tuesday, going 1 for 4 with a two-run home run in his team's 4-2 loss to the Orioles.

Trout was one of only two Angels to get a hit in the game, and while his hit sailed over the outfield fence for a home run, it wasn't enough to avoid the loss. He has hit .309/.395/.610 with 24 home runs, 76 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 369 at-bats.


Jonathan Schoop knocks eighth home run Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:39 am ET) Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop went 2 for 4 with a two-run home run in his team's 4-2 win over the Angels Tuesday.

After J.J. Hardy drove in the first run of the game with a double in the sixth inning, Schoop immediately followed with a home run to give his team the cushion needed to hang on to the win. He has hit .220/.256/.338 with eight home runs and 26 RBI in 287 at-bats, but two of his homers have come since the All-Star break.
