Report: Henry Owens on the way to Pawtucket
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:02 am ET) The Red Sox have promoted premier pitching prospect Henry Owens to Triple-A Pawtucket, sources have told WEEI.com.

The 22-year-old southpaw earned the promotion by compiling a 12-4 record and 2.60 ERA. He has yielded just 89 hits in 121 innings with 126 strikeouts. Given the trades of Jon Lester and John Lackey on Thursday, Owens could be on the fast-track to Boston.


Report: Tyler Skaggs likely heading to DL
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:56 am ET) Angels left-hander Tyler Skaggs expressed confidence that the forearm strain that knocked him out of the game Thursday against Baltimore is not serious. But it will likely land him on the disabled list, according to the Los Angeles Times.

That would mark his second trip to the DL this season.

Skaggs, who is scheduled for an MRI on Friday, is 5-5 with a 4.30 ERA in 2014.


Trade deadline not likely to save Emilio Bonifacio's value
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:50 am ET) After a hot start to the season that saw  him jump to Fantasy relevance, Emilio Bonifacio has been in a long decline that saw him benched by the Cubs over the last two months and relegated to part-time duty.

Despite this, Bonifacio is still owned in 48 percent of CBSSports.com leagues, even though he has just four stolen bases to his name since May 1. The deadline-day move to send him from Chicago to Atlanta is unlikely to open up too much more playing time for the super-utility man, so Fantasy owners still clinging to whatever semblance of hope is left would be wise to cut ties with Bonifacio now. 


Jose Abreu remains on fire with three-hit game in Motor City
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:48 am ET) The only unusual aspect of another big game for White Sox slugger Jose Abreu on Thursday was that he neither scored nor drove in a run. Other than that - typical Abreu.

The breakout star doubled twice, singled and walked twice in helping his team defeat Detroit. Abreu extended his hitting streak to 20 and has hit safely in 38 of his last 39 games. He leads the majors in home runs with 31 and RBI with 83.


Grady Sizemore continues to rake in leading Phillies to win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:42 am ET) The comeback story of Phillies left fielder Grady Sizemore continued to move toward a happy ending with another productive game Thursday in Washington.

Sizemore slammed three more hits, including a two-run double in the fourth that launched the rout and an RBI single in the ninth that capped it. He has been lights-out since signing with Philadelphia. Sizemore has nine hits, five runs and five RBI in his last five starts.


Ben Revere smacks four hits to help Phillies beat Nationals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:38 am ET) Phillies center fielder and leadoff hitter Ben Revere went from hot to hotter Thursday in Washington.

Revere slapped four singles, scored twice and drove in a run in a rout of the Nationals. He has 17 hits in his last 40 at-bats and has hit safely in eight of nine games to sweeten his stat line to .306/.326/.366.


Move to Miami unlikely to give Jarred Cosart a big boost
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:37 am ET) The Marlins have slotted Jarred Cosart into Jacob Turner's slot in the rotation, meaning we will get out first view of how the team's newest pitcher adjusts to life at Marlins Park.

Cosart never really set the world on fire with the Astros, though he was better for most of the season than his 4.41 overall ERA might indicate. He entered the month of July riding a five-game quality start streak and sporting a 3.60 ERA though 16 starts, but was tagged for an 8.02 ERA in four July outings, while never finishing the sixth in any start.

The move to Miami could be a boon to Cosart's Fantasy value, as his extreme groundball tendencies should play even better in Miami. He allowed just 0.54 home runs per nine innings with the Astros as is, but is not moving from a park that ranks as one of the majors friendliest to power hitters to one that dampens power to an almost absurd degree.

Cosart should be helped by the move to Miami, but Fantasy owners probably shouldn't have too much interest until the hard-throwing righty can turn some of that velocity into strikeouts. Cosart moves into consideration for NL-only leagues with this move, but is probably not worth an addition in mixed leagues at this point. 


Moises Sierra grabs spotlight in rare start for White Sox
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:33 am ET) White Sox right fielder Moises Sierra took advantage of a rare start Thursday with his second four-hit game of the season.

Sierra recorded three singles and a double with an RBI and run. His stat line numbers of .237/.257/.344 are all at their peak for the season.


Yasiel Puig nearly entire offense for Dodgers in Thursday win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:24 am ET) Brilliant left-hander Clayton Kershaw did not beat the Braves all by himself Thursday night. He needed help from Yasiel Puig - and he got it.

Puig played the role of offensive hero with a solo home run in the third inning, as well as a double and run. That proved to be all Kershaw required. Puig has been on a tear recently with 12 hits in his last 26 at-bats and eight runs in his last six games.


Jason Kipnis slugs rare home run in Thursday defeat
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:19 am ET) The oblique injury that Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis has blamed for robbing him of his power did not rob him of his power Thursday night. He produced only his second game with a home run since April 21.

Kipnis blasted off with a two-run job in the third inning and added a double in a loss to Seattle. He sweetened his stat line to .243/.322/.356 in the process, but those numbers are significantly off what he achieved in 2013.
