Royals OF prospect Bubba Starling hit for the cycle Tuesday in a win for Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

He finished it off with a ninth-inning single. The cycle was the first in club history. Starling has hit a remarkable .356 in 23 games this month with 12 RBI and 11 extra-base hits. The 22-year-old is batting .300 with an .850 OPS across two minor league levels this year.

Corey Kluber went the distance against the Royals Wednesday, recording six strikeouts while allowing just one run in a 12-1 victory.

He missed out on a shutout when Alex Rios had an RBI groundout in the ninth inning, but that's hardly anything to quibble over. Kluber permitted just five base knocks on the day and issued just one free pass as the Tribe rolled to a win. The reigning American League Cy Young winner has a superb 172/32 K/BB ratio over 157 innings this season to go along with a 3.44 ERA. He'll get the Angels on the road next.

Randal Grichuk (groin) is back in the Cardinals' starting lineup Wednesday against the Reds.

Grichuk missed a couple of games with groin discomfort. He underwent an MRI on Monday and it showed no structural damage. The young slugger is starting in center field and batting seventh in his return to action Wednesday.

Jeremy Guthrie was lit up for eight runs -- seven earned -- over 5 1/3 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Indians.

He yielded 10 hits -- including three home runs -- while walking one, hitting three batters and recording just three strikeouts. It could be the last straw for Guthrie, whose ERA on the season now sits at 5.65. Royals manager Ned Yost will decide by next Tuesday whether to keep Guthrie or Chris Young in the rotation.
Jul 29 - 4:05 PM

Reds RHP prospect Robert Stephenson fanned 10 hitters over eight shutout frames Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Louisville.

It was Stephenson's first double-digit strikeout game since getting promoted to Triple-A on July 3. The 105-pitch outing matched the longest of his minor league career. He's logged an outstanding 2.40 ERA during his five-game unbeaten steak. The 2011 first-round pick has struck out 9.97 hitters per nine innings this season. Stephenson was ranked 46th in MLB.com's most recent prospect rankings.

Indians acquired LHP Jayson Aquino from the Pirates in exchange for cash considerations.

Aquino was designated for assignment a week ago. He holds a 3.54 ERA with 66 strikeouts over 104 1/3 innings at the High-A level this season.
Jul 29 - 4:00 PM

Brock Holt (knee) is back in the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.

Holt missed the last two games with a hyperextended left knee. He's at second base and batting leadoff.
Jul 29 - 3:59 PM

Troy Tulowitzki is at shortstop and batting leadoff in his Blue Jays debut Wednesday.

He might be lower in the order if Devon Travis (shoulder) wasn't hurt, but, unfortunately, that's not the case. It's the first time in Tulowitzki's career that he's hit leadoff.
