Mike Pelfrey pitched inconsistently in Saturday's no-decision against the Royals, yielding three runs on seven hits over four-plus innings.

In addition to the seven hits allowed, Pelfrey also walked three batters in what was generally just an off start. The three runs on his line all scored to open the fifth inning. After a fantastic start to the season, Pelfrey's numbers have gradually started to slide and with a WHIP of 1.49, it's likely that his 3.98 ERA still has some upward movement in store for it. He'll continue his fight against the ravages of numerical inevitability in a home start against the Tigers next time he takes the ball.

Joe Blanton surrendered four runs on nine hits in five innings of work against the Twins on Saturday.

Three of those four runs scored in the first inning, when Blanton served up a two-run homer to Joe Mauer and an RBI out to Aaron Hicks. He settled down after the initial hiccup and finished with four strikeouts and no walks. Pitching between the bullpen and the rotation, Blanton is the owner of a 3.74 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and a 30/7 K/BB ratio over 33 2/3 innings. Up next on the schedule, a Thursday afternoon home date with the Rays.
Jul 4 - 11:00 PM

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Mets.

Gonzalez took Mets starter Matt Harvey deep for his 15th homer of the year in the fifth inning and with the RBI, Gonzalez has now batted in an even 50 for the season. His season-long triple-slash looks solid at .293/.367/.514, but it should be noted that after a molten hot April, he's posted progressively lower numbers each of the last two months. In June, he hit just .248/.320/.381.
Jul 4 - 10:58 PM

Ryan Pressly left Saturday's game against the Royals with a strained right shoulder.

He pitched a scoreless sixth inning before coming out. Pressly has gone 3-2 this year with a 2.93 ERA across 27 outings. The 26-year-old could be headed to the disabled list.
Jul 4 - 10:57 PM

Wilmer Flores went 3-for-4 with an RBI single in Saturday's loss to the Dodgers.

Flores knocked in a run with a single in the eighth inning. He's been absolutely sizzling this holiday weekend, with seven hits in his last 11 at-bats and back-to-back three-hit games. His recent hot stretch is not indicative of how he's been hitting all season, as he's slashing .248/.280/.398 with 10 homers and 35 RBI. The power and run-production are swell enough, but the average could use some work.
Jul 4 - 10:51 PM

Zach Greinke continued his run of dominance in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Mets, throwing seven innings of shutout ball while allowing just four hits.

With the win, Greinke improved to 7-2 on the year. He struck out four without walking a batter and now carries a 1.48 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 97/20 K/BB ratio across 115 1/3 innings. There's not much we can say that the numbers don't say themselves. Up next for Greinke's slicing and dicing pleasure, the Philadelphia Phillies.
Jul 4 - 10:44 PM

The Cubs are expected to activate OF Jorge Soler (ankle) from the 15-day disabled list on Sunday.

Soler went 2-for-13 with four strikeouts during his four-game rehab stint with Triple-A Iowa. He'll immediately take over for Chris Denorfia in right field. The 23-year-old went on the DL last month with a sprained left ankle.
Jul 4 - 10:43 PM

Matt Harvey handed out five free passes while allowing three runs over five innings in Saturday's loss to the Dodgers.

Entering the game, Harvey had only walked 17 over 99 1/3 innings, but he showed no such control against the Dodgers. Even with his location struggles, though, he only allowed three runs. Two came home in the fifth inning, when Harvey coughed up a solo home run to Adrian Gonzalez and surrendered an RBI single to Alberto Callaspo. He'll carry a 3.11 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 100/23 K/BB ratio over 104 1/3 innings into his next start, a Saturday afternoon home date with the Diamondbacks.
