Blue Jays DFA Bobby Korecky Friday
Korecky spent some time with the Blue Jays earlier in the season, allowing three runs in 3 1/3 innings of work.
No slowing J.D. Martinez down in July
Four days after slugging his career-high 12th home run of the season, Martinez was held in the yard Thursday. He still managed to make his impact felt, reaching base three times and driving in three runs, while going 2 for 3 with a walk. He added a pair of runs scored in the win.
Martinez is hitting .429/.462/.829 with three home runs and nine RBI in nine July games.
Dan Johnson to get the call for Blue Jays
The Jays will select the contract of infielder
Johnson signed a minor-league contract with the Jays in the offseason, and was hitting .248/.402/.471 in 94 games at Buffalo. Adam Lind is expected to be placed on the disabled list with a foot injury in order to make room.
Torii Hunter drives in three more in win
Hunter went 3 for 6 in the blowout win, with a solo home run. He drove in three runs overall and scored twice, bringing his RBI total for the month to 14 in nine games.
Hunter was hitting just .249 on July 1, but has raised his season average to .276 with his play since. He is hitting .444/.447/.750 with three home runs and 14 RBI in nine July games.
Carlos Santana hits homer No. 14
Santana went 1 for 5 with a two-run home run in the win, while striking out twice. It was his second home run of the month of July and 14th of the season.
Santana is hitting .208/.349/.391 in 81 games.
Roberto Perez homers in big-league debut
Perez reached base three times in the win, going 2 for 3 with a walk. He added a home run and two RBI, while scoring twice.
Perez spent two days on the roster before getting his first action, so it is not clear how much playing time he might find moving forward.
Jair Jurrjens sent down following second start
Jurrjens made two starts for the Rockies, allowing eight runs over 9 1/3 innings, with nine strikeouts and a 2.46 WHIP. He could return to the rotation after the All-Star break if needed.
Asdrubal Cabrera drives in three with triple
Cabrera reached base three times, and none of those times was more important than when he drove in three runs with a seventh-inning triple to tied the game. He finished the game 2 for 4 with one run scored and a walk in addition to his three RBI.
Cabrera had just one RBI in the first eight games of the month of July, and now has 37 RBI in 86 games overall. He is hitting .251/.312/.398 in 339 at-bats.
Miguel Cabrera drives in three after day off
Cabrera went 2 for 3 in the game, and he drove in three runs in the first four innings as the Tigers ran up the score. He also walked twice and scored once in the big win.
Cabrera got off to a slow start -- by his standards -- but is back to seventh in the American League with a .926 OPS. He is batting .315/.376/.550 while ranking second in the AL with 73 RBI in 87 games.
