Corey Kluber throws 85 pitches in complete-game shutout
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:21 pm ET) Indians pitcher Corey Kluber was dominant Wednesday, needing just 85 pitches to turn in a complete-game shutout in his team's 2-0 win over the Mariners.

Kluber (11-6) gave up just three hits in his nine scoreless innings, striking out eight and walking none. It's his second straight start going nine innings and not giving up an earned run, though he did surrender an unearned run in a no-decision his last time out. Kluber owns a 2.61 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 170:33 K:BB ratio in 158 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to take on the Reds Monday.


Felix Hernandez sets MLB record in loss Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:19 pm ET) Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez was hung with a loss Wednesday, giving up two earned runs on four hits and two walks in seven innings and striking out five in his team's 2-0 defeat against the Indians.

Hernandez (11-3) set a major-league record Wednesday, posting his 14th straight start of at least seven innings with two runs or fewer allowed, according to the team. Unfortunately, he has just one win to show for his last five quality starts as the team has failed to back him offensively. Hernandez owns a 2.01 ERA and 178:31 K:BB ratio in 165 1/3 innings. He'll take on the Braves Tuesday.


Jose Berrios could make next start despite shoulder issue
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:15 pm ET) Twins pitching prospect Jose Berrios may not miss a start after coming out of Tuesday's game with shoulder tightness, MLB.com reports.

Berrios was removed for precautionary reasons, and the team still seems likely to skip him in the Double-A rotation if he is still feeling the aftereffects of the tightness in a few days. He owns a 4.58 ERA and 13:6 K:BB ratio with New Britian after an excellent stretch at high Class A Fort Myers.


Jake Smolinksi not running at full speed
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8:59 pm ET) Rangers outfielder Jake Smolinski has yet to run at full speed since suffering a small cracked bone in his left foot on a foul ball last week, MLB.com reports.

"I'll be fine," Smolinski said. "But it's always frustrating to not be on the field with your teammates. I'm just trying to stay positive and control everything I can control right now, and do my best to get back out there."

Smolinski is eligible to come off the disabled list next Wednesday, but that remains unlikely until he can run without issue. He has hit .389/.450/.472 in 36 at-bats over 11 games.


Jason Heyward likely out until Friday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8:56 pm ET) Braves outfieler Jason Heyward will likely not play Thursday as the team gives him one more day of rest as a precaution, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Heyward was initially expected to return Wednesday or Thursday, but the Braves will play it safe with the outfielder. He has been dealing with a back injury this week.


Derek Holland pitches two innings in rehab debut
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8:48 pm ET) Rangers pitcher Derek Holland struck out four and walked two in two scoreless innings in his rehab debut with Double-A Frisco Wednesday.

Holland was playing in his first game this season after dealing with a knee injury. If all goes well during rehab, he could return to the Rangers rotation in the last few weeks of August.


Report: Dodgers may trade top prospect for nonrental
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8:39 pm ET) The Dodgers "haven't flat out said no" to trading one of their top three prospects for a player, as long as that player isn't due to be a free agent after the season, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Previous reports have said that outfielder Joc Pederson, third baseman Corey Seager and pitcher Julio Urias were off the table in trade talks, but that only applies to a rental like Jon Lester. The Phillies and Rays may be able to get the Dodgers to part with at least one of the team's top prospects in a deal for Cole Hamels or David Price, respectively, though neither trade has been reported to be in the works.


Michael Saunders closing in on rehab assignment
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8:35 pm ET) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon remains hopeful that outfielder Michael Saunders will be able to begin a rehab assignment by the weekend, MLB.com reports.

Saunders isn't swinging the bat at 100 percent yet and that "it's going to take some time," according to McClendon, but he was able to participate in batting practice for a second straight day Wednesday. Saunders has been sidelined since July 10 due to a strained oblique.


Andrew Cashner closing in on rehab assignment
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8:28 pm ET) Padres pitcher Andrew Cashner should begin a rehab assignment next week after throwing another successful bullpen session Wednesday, MLB.com reports.

Cashner was able to throw sliders in Wednesday's session, something that caused him soreness earlier in the year. He has been out since June 20 while recovering from a shoulder injury. Cashner owns a 2.36 ERA and 59:22 K:BB ratio in 76 1/3 innings.


Geovany Soto to begin rehab Friday, return Aug. 8
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7:55 pm ET) Rangers catcher Geovany Soto expects to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock Friday and return to the team the following Friday, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Soto was placed on the disabled list last week with a groin injury. He has made just three appearances with the Rangers this season, going 4 for 11 at the plate.
