Xander Bogaerts attempted to spark a ninth-inning rally by himself, hitting a solo home run off of Casey Janssen, but the Red Sox ultimately fell to the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

It's been a tough year for the third baseman, but the Red Sox hope the flash of power on display Tuesday is a sign of things to come. The 21-year-old owns a .241/.311/.362 slash line with eight home runs and 26 RBI.

Jon Lester has been scratched from Wednesday's scheduled start versus the Blue Jays.

He hasn't been traded yet, but this move suggests that the Red Sox believe they might be close to dealing their ace left-hander. Brandon Workman will take the ball Wednesday in Lester's place. The Pirates, Blue Jays, Mariners, Brewers, Cardinals, Dodgers, Orioles, and Marlins are among the clubs that have been linked to Lester.

Colby Rasmus went 2-for-4, including a solo home run, as the Blue Jays enjoyed a victory over the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Rasmus broke a scoreless tie in the top of the second, taking Rubby De La Rosa out to center field. The 27-year-old outfielder has been quiet as the month of July has gone on, but still maintains a slugging-heavy .223/.285/.459 slash line with 14 home runs and 33 RBI.
Jul 29 - 10:26 PM

Rubby De La Rosa notched a quality start on Tuesday, allowing three runs over six innings, but took a loss against the Blue Jays.

It could have been a lot worse for De La Rosa, as the lefty allowed nine hits and walked two while only striking out one batter. The 25-year-old has a 3.64 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP, and a 37/16 K/BB ratio. De La Rosa will begin an eight-game road trip when he takes on the Cardinals on Tuesday.
Jul 29 - 10:22 PM

Marcus Stroman improved to 7-2, allowing one run over seven innings as the Blue Jays hung on to victory against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old Stroman has quickly shown that he belongs in the big leagues. He held the Red Sox to six hits and two walks while striking out eight. Since moving into the rotation at the end of May, the right-hander has a 2.12 ERA in 11 starts spanning 68 innings. The talented rookie will look to keep it going on Monday, when he takes on the Astros in a road start.

Jason Vargas (appendectomy) could rejoin the Royals' rotation on Saturday in Oakland.

Vargas threw a four-inning simulated game on Tuesday with no issues. "He threw four innings, 15 pitches each inning. He had much more life on his pitches, much better command on his pitches, so he looked really good," manager Ned Yost said. Yost said "we'll see" when asked about Vargas starting Saturday, but it sounds like the club is leaning that way. We'll know for sure in a day or two.
Jul 29 - 10:17 PM

Brandon Guyer went 2-for-3 with an RBI single in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

Guyer had a run-scoring infield single in the Rays' four-run eighth inning, and he also doubled in the game. The two-hit night was his first multi-hit game in 10 days, as he'd seen his average drop to .265. With the two-hit game, Guyer's line is back up to .272/.333/.361.
Jul 29 - 10:15 PM

Dillon Gee fell to 4-4, allowing five runs in 6 2/3 innings as the Mets were shut out 6-0 in Tuesday's loss.

Gee had a decent start working for him, allowing only two runs on two solo home runs through six innings. In the seventh, he mixed base runners and outs, allowing Domonic Brown to reach on a single, hitting Ben Revere with a pitch, and walking Jimmy Rollins. Manager Terry Collins opted to bring in lefty reliever Josh Edgin to face the left-handed Chase Utley, but Utley deposited a grand slam into the upper deck in right field. Overall, Gee allowed five hits, walked three, and struck out two. He'll take a 3.77 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 53/21 K/BB ratio into Monday's start at home against the Giants.
