Scott Feldman pitched decently in Friday's no-decision against the Diamondbacks, allowing three runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings.
Feldman punched out three and didn't issue a walk in the ballgame. With Thursday's acquisition of Mike Fiers it remains unclear whether it will be Feldman or Collin McHugh who gets bumped from the Astros rotation, so Feldman needed a decent effort on Friday to state his case.
Kyle Kendrick will undergo an MRI exam on his injured shoulder on Monday.
The Rockies believe that the injury is to his rotator cuff but remain hopeful that it isn't too serious. Either way, a trip to the disabled list could be in the works for the veteran right-hander.
Josh Donaldson drove in four runs in Friday's 7-6 win over the Royals, including a walk-off RBI single in the 11th.
Donaldson had a two-run double in the third inning before knocking in another run with a double in the seventh. The game-winning rally in the 11th was set up after Troy Tulowitzki reached on a one-out single and moved over to second base on a balk by Frankin Morales. Donaldson then laced a single to left field to end it. The 29-year-old continues to have a monster year, batting .295/.358/.550 with 25 homers and 73 RBI.
Drew Hutchison gave up four runs (three earned) over five-plus innings Friday in a no-decision against the Royals.
Hutchison allowed three runs in the first inning and was charged with the final run after being pulled in the sixth. He gave up seven hits and walked one while registering just one strikeout. The 24-year-old has now failed to complete six innings in eight out of his last nine starts. He'll bring a 5.42 ERA into a start against the Twins next week at home.
Making his Royals debut, Johnny Cueto allowed three runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Friday.
Cueto didn't have his best command in his first start with his new club, but it was good enough for a quality start. He gave up seven hits and walked a pair while striking out seven batters. The new Royals' ace will get the Tigers next time out.
Kevin Pillar was 2-for-4 with an RBI single against the Royals on Friday.
Pillar hit .283 over 25 games this month, but oddly he drove in just four runs. Either way, he should remain Toronto's regular center fielder even after Friday's addition of Ben Revere. Revere will likely share playing time with Chris Colabello in left field.
Troy Tulowitzki went 2-for-6 with two runs scored in Friday's extra-inning win over the Royals.
Tulowitzki singled with one out in the 11th inning and eventually came around to score the winning run on Josh Donaldson's walk-off single. With Devon Travis (shoulder) back on the disabled list, the slugging shortstop appears likely to stick in the leadoff spot for Toronto.
Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-5 with two runs scored and a stolen base Friday against the Blue Jays.
The hot-hitting continues for Cain, who wraps up July with a .367 batting average. The 29-year-old is batting .314/.371/.504 on the year and has already set a career-high with 11 home runs. He's currently on pace for new career-highs in RBI and stolen bases as well.
