Angels signed RHP Fernando Salas to a minor league contract.

Salas was released by the Mets last week after posting a 6.00 ERA over 48 appearances. The veteran reliever had some successful years in Anaheim and is worth a shot on a minor league deal.

Chris Beck (shoulder) allowed three runs over two relief innings against the Rangers on Saturday in his return to action.

Beck had to leave an appearance Thursday after being hit on the pitching shoulder with a line drive, but he'll be fine. What isn't fine is his ERA, which now sits at an even 6.00 after Beck was scored upon for the 12th time in 17 appearances since the beginning of July.
Aug 20 - 8:11 AM

Rhys Hoskins went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Giants.

Hoskins smashed a three-run home run off Ty Blach in the third inning. The 24-year-old outfielder made his major league debut on August 10 and has jumped out of the gate with four home runs in his first 10 games in the bigs.
Aug 20 - 1:27 AM

Cameron Rupp went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, two runs scored and a walk in Saturday's win over the Giants.

Rupp put a final bow on a strong offensive night by the Phillies, cracking a solo home run in the ninth inning to put the Giants up by a 12-4 score. The backstop has now homered in back-to-back games. For the overall campaign, he owns a .233/.320/.446 triple-slash with 12 homers and 27 RBI over the course of 71 games played.
Aug 20 - 1:22 AM

Denard Span went 2-for-3 with a solo inside-the-park home run and three total RBI in Saturday's loss to the Phillies.

Span scooted his way around the bases for an inside-the-park home run in the first inning and collected a two-run single just one frame later. No further RBI damage after that point for the veteran outfielder. For the campaign as a whole, Span is hitting a modest .275/.326/.431 with nine homers, 32 RBI and eight steals over the course of 96 games played. He no longer holds any fantasy value, but has been a dependable enough contributor during this trying season by the Giants.
Aug 20 - 1:17 AM

Pablo Sandoval went 2-for-5 with a two-run single and a double in Saturday's loss to the Phillies.

Sandoval hit a two-run single in the ninth inning to spark an ultimately failed comeback attempt from down 12-4. They drew to within 12-9 before the magic ran out. In 13 games since joining the Giants after being released by the Red Sox, Sandoval is hitting .250/.280/.375 with one homer and four RBI.
Aug 20 - 1:05 AM

Jerad Eickhoff allowed four runs on eight hits over 4 2/3 innings in Saturday's win over the Giants.

Eickhoff was not exactly cruising in this one, but he was more than adequate compared to opposing starter Ty Blach. The Giants burned Eickhoff for a run in the first inning, two in the second and one more in the fourth to account for the damage on his line. He will bring a 4.46 ERA and 1.49 WHIP into a home start against the Marlins in his next scheduled outing.

Scooter Gennett had two hits, including a grand slam, and five RBI as the Reds outlasted the Braves 11-8 on Saturday.

Gennett drove in a run with a sac fly in the seventh inning before lifting a no-doubter into the right field seats in the ninth. It seemed like piling on at the time, but the Braves plated four of their own in the bottom of the frame, making Gennett's slam the difference. He's now got 21 homers on the season, easily a career best, and he's also on pace to set career highs in runs scored, RBI, slugging percentage and OPS as well. There have been few more surprising stories in 2017 than that of the Brewers castoff.
