Cubs pitcher Pedro Strop available to throw Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:53 pm ET) Cubs relief pitcher Pedro Strop is available to throw Sunday after being held out with a sore left foot, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Strop, who has thrown 7 1/3 scoreless innings this season, would have been available Saturday, but the contest was rained out with no make-up date scheduled yet. He has recorded 10 strikeouts with just two walks so far this season.


Report: Hamilton swap from Angels to Rangers should be approved
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7:52 pm ET) It's only a matter of time before the trade sending embattled outfielder Josh Hamilton from the Angels to the Rangers is approved, per MLB.com, which is claiming through a source that there has been no reason given for its rejection.

CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reported Friday that it would take a day or two for the details of the deal to be ironed out.


Cubs' Joe Maddon not concerned with Addison Russell's slow start
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:50 pm ET) Cubs manager Joe Maddon knows rookie Addison Russell is still trying to find his way at the plate in the big leagues. Which is why the skipper is not too worried about Russell's 2 for 18 start with 10 strikeouts, according to the Chicago Tribune.

"It's not just about hits, folks," said Maddon. "If anybody wants to make it just about hits, fine. But if you want to play that game, you're going to lose a lot. You've got to catch it. He's a very good baserunner and runs well. He does a lot of things to help us win games."


Cubs pitcher Zac Rosscup throwing with confidence this season
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:46 pm ET) Cubs pitcher Zac Rosscup is making sure he doesn't waste the opportunity he's been given this season, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The reliever has done well since being called up a week and a half ago, posting a 1.35 ERA with nine strikeouts and one walk in 6 2/3 innings.

"I have more confidence," said Rosscup. "I'm trusting my stuff. I just go out there and pitch. When I simplify everything — and (manager) Joe (Maddon) talks about it a lot, 'do simple better' — that's what's stuck with me, and that's what I'm trying to do."


Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu to throw bullpen this week
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:39 pm ET) Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu is scheduled to throw a bullpen session in the next couple of days and possibly as early as Sunday, according to the L.A. Times.

Ryu, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a shoulder injury, remains without a timetable for his return to the pitching staff. He has been unable to throw in a game so far this season after posting a 14-7 record in 2014 with a 3.38 ERA and 139 strikeouts.


Red Sox bring up RHP Matt Barnes from Triple-A
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7:30 pm ET) Right-hander Matt Barnes has been promoted by the Red Sox from Triple-A Pawtucket to take the place of shelved outfielder Shane Victorino.

Barnes, who was one of the last cuts off the big-league roster before the regular season, has struggled in the minors this year to the tune of five earned runs in eight innings in two starts. He pitched five games in relief late last year with the Red Sox.


Athletics starter Kendall Graveman gives up six runs in loss on Saturday
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(7:25 pm ET) Athletics starting pitcher Kendall Graveman (1-2) allowed six earned runs on nine hits in 4 2/3 innings on Saturday to take the loss against the Astros.

Graveman struck out one and walked one and was tagged for a home run off Jose Altuve.

Graveman's next start is Friday in Texas.

Marlins SS Adeiny Hechavarria blasts off in defeat of Nationals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7:21 pm ET) For a guy hitting eighth in the lineup, Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria is certainly doing one heck of an impression of a slugger.

Hechavarria maintained his status Saturday one of the hottest hitters in the sport by slamming a three-run homer in the eighth inning of a lopsided defeat of the Nationals. It marked his second three-RBI performance in the last three games.

The 26 year old owns an eight-game hitting streak in which he is 14-for-31. He has been particularly hot lately with 11 hits in 16 at-bats and six RBI in the last four games. Hechavarria has 13 RBI and 15 runs scored in 17 games on the year.


Sizzling Giancarlo Stanton keys Saturday win for Marlins
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7:12 pm ET) It took Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton 10 days this season to get his booming bat going. But he has certainly made up for lost time.

Stanton not only slugged his fifth homer in the last 10 games in a waltz Saturday over Washington, but he singled, doubled and walked to send his slugging percentage soaring to a season-high .569.

He was involved in the rout throughout. He doubled in a run and scored in the fourth, walked and scored in the sixth, then put the cherry on top with a 419-foot clout in the eighth.


Astros starting pitcher Scott Feldman pitches into seventh to earn win
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(7:11 pm ET) Astros starting pitcher Scott Feldman (2-2) yielded three earned runs on five hits and struck out six in 6 2/3 innings Saturday to defeat the Athletics.

Feldman was pulled in the seventh inning after allowing a two-run triple to second baseman Eric Sogard.

Feldman's next start is set for Thursday against the Mariners.
