Adam Eaton is not in the White Sox lineup Saturday against the Twins.

Eaton hasn't missed a game since the first week of the season, so he was probably due for a day off. Avisail Garcia will get the nod in right field and bat fifth against Twins lefty Tommy Milone. Eaton should be back in the starting nine for Sunday's series finale.

Kevin Pillar went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and four RBI on Saturday, leading the Blue Jays in a 9-1 thrashing of the Orioles.

Pillar capped off a seven-run uprising in the fifth inning with a two-run double, then replicated the feat in the seventh to put the Jays ahead 9-1. With his two-hit attack, he's now hitting .268/.300/.396 with seven homers, 45 RBI and eight stolen bases.

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports the Padres are looking to deal Matt Kemp.

Everything must go. The Padres still aren't done selling even after trading away Andrew Cashner, Melvin Upton, James Shields, Fernando Rodney and Drew Pomeranz. Trading Kemp appears to be the team's next order of business and the Padres are willing to eat a large chunk of his salary to broker a deal. The 31-year-old has had a fine season, hitting .269 with 23 HR and 69 RBI. Rosenthal mentioned Atlanta as a possible fit. It looks like the only Padre safe from being traded is All-Star first baseman Wil Myers.

J.A. Happ delivered a brilliant outing in Saturday's victory over the Orioles, punching out 11 over seven innings of one-run ball.

Happ allowed just three hits and three walks on the day. His lone mistake came on an 0-2 pitch to Pedro Alvarez in the second inning that caught too much of the plate and was deposited into the seats in right field. Happ has been a tremendous addition to the Blue Jays rotation this season, posting a 13-3 record with a 3.16 ERA and 1.16 WHIP. He'll take on the Astros his next time out in Houston on Thursday.

Pedro Alvarez clubbed a solo home run on Saturday, accounting for the Orioles' lone run in a loss to the Blue Jays.

Alvarez took advantage of a mistake that J.A. Happ made on an 0-2 pitch and pummeled it into the seats in right field. The left-handed slugger finished the afternoon 1-for-4 and is now hitting .249/.306/.480 with 13 homers and 32 RBI on the season.
Jul 30 - 4:25 PM

Jonathan Lucroy is not in the Brewers' lineup Saturday against the Pirates.

This can't be a coincidence. Lucroy isn't hurt and the Brewers can't really call this a maintenance day since he was out of the lineup two days ago. It's unclear if a deal is in the works, but it seems likely that Lucroy will have a new team in the next 24-48 hours. Stay tuned.
Jul 30 - 4:20 PM

Yovani Gallardo was hammered in Saturday's loss to the Blue Jays, allowing five runs on five hits over 4 1/3 innings.

Gallardo struggled badly with his command, walking five and striking out five on the afternoon. He made it through the first four innings unscathed, but ran into a buzzsaw in the fifth. After a strikeout to begin to begin the inning, he gave up a homer to Devon Travis, then a pair of walks, a two-run double to Edwin Encarnacion and an intentional walk before departing. He'll look to improve upon a troublesome 5.70 ERA and 1.67 WHIP when he takes on the White Sox in Chicago on Friday.
Jul 30 - 4:18 PM

Tony Watson is expected to serve as the Pirates' closer in the wake of Saturday's trade sending Mark Melancon to the Nationals.

Watson has been nothing short of exceptional over six seasons in the Pirates bullpen, compiling a 2.48 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 8.1 K/9. He has five career saves under his belt already and should pile them up in a hurry over the final few months of the season. Should he falter, Neftali Feliz has prior closing experience and could be considered for the ninth-inning gig.
