News: Pham went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer, three RBI overall and three runs in Friday's 11-6 victory over the Marlins.

The 28-year-old outfielder plated Matt Adams with a fifth-inning single, and then provided some breathing room with a 424-foot shot to center in the eighth that brought home Jeremy Hazelbaker after the Marlins has shrunk the Cardinals' lead to 9-6. Pham has broken out with five homers and 10 extra-base hits overall during an extended stretch of consistent playing time in July, raising his average 55 points since June 30 in the process.

Marcell Ozuna
Marlins' Marcell Ozuna: Clobbers 18th homer in Friday loss
Marcell Ozuna, CF, MIA
11:38 AM
News: Ozuna clubbed his 18th home run of the season as part of a 2-for-4 effort in Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

It was the outfielder's first homer since way back on July 1 and prior to Friday's blast, he had batted .202/.262/.269 over his last 21 games. Ozuna has, however, hit in three straight, including the home run and a pair of doubles, and appears to be getting back in a groove at the plate. Even with the sluggish July, Ozuna is slashing .299/.350/.515 on the year with 18 home runs, 57 runs scored and 54 RBI.

News: Davis went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Indians.

The slugging outfielder continues to knock the cover off the ball, with his 395-foot shot in the sixth representing his third homer in the last two games. Davis also has a six-game hitting streak and six extra-base hits overall during that span.

Athletics' Josh Reddick: Homers again in Friday loss
Josh Reddick, RF, OAK
11:34 AM
News: Reddick went 1-for-5 with a solo homer and two runs in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Indians.

The veteran outfielder laced a 398-foot shot to right center in the sixth, blast that would be immediately followed by one from Khris Davis that would serve to chase Indians starter Trevor Bauer. The 29-year-old has hit safely in four straight, and has homers in two of his last three contests.

Jose Bautista
Blue Jays' Jose Bautista: Homers for first time since return from DL
Jose Bautista, RF, TOR
11:08 AM
News: Bautista went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday's 6-5 victory over the Orioles.

The slugging leadoff man got the Jays started on the road back from an early 2-0 deficit with a leadoff homer in the home half of the first. It was the first time going deep for Bautista since returning from the DL on July 25 and only his second hit overall during that span. He notably whiffed on his other three at-bats Friday after striking out three times in the first three games back as well, a strong indication that he's likely still in the process of regaining his timing at the plate.

News: Kim is not in the lineup for Saturday's contest against the Blue Jays, Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Kim will be getting a regular day off after starting the past the past four games. This will be Kim's first day off after missing 11 games due to a hamstring injury. In his place, Nolan Reimold will get the nod in left, while batting ninth in the order.

Jason Heyward
Cubs' Jason Heyward: Launches two-run homer in Friday blowout win
Jason Heyward, RF, CHC
1:44 AM
News: Heyward went 1-for-4 with a sacrifice fly and two-run homer in Friday's 12-1 victory over the Mariners.

It was only his fifth long ball of the year and first since way back on June 11 against the Braves. Heyward's power drought over his first Cubs campaign has been relatively surprising, given that he's put together six straight double-digit homer seasons to start his career. The 26-year-old has endured a rough month of July as well, with only six extra-base hits and five RBI over 84 at-bats.

Yasiel Puig
Dodgers' Yasiel Puig: Sees action off the bench Friday
Yasiel Puig, RF, LAD
1:08 AM
News: Puig (hamstring) flied out in a pinch-hit at-bat and played right field for the final two innings of Friday's victory over the Diamondbacks.

Puig was not healthy enough to play a full nine innings Friday, but he was able to get on the field for the first time in a week. Puig's pinch-hit appearance prevents the Dodgers from backdating a potential stint on the disabled list, which suggests Puig's return to the starting lineup may not be far off.

Red Sox's Jackie Bradley: Hits 17th homer Friday night
Jackie Bradley, CF, BOS
12:50 AM
News: Bradley was 1-for-4 on Friday night against the Angels, including his 17th homer.

Bradley atoned for a defensive miscue in the second inning while his sixth inning bomb off Tim Lincecum. He continues to build on his breakout season and now has 60 runs and 62 RBI to go with his 17th homer, all career highs across the board.
