Chris Sale was knocked around by the Rays on Tuesday, allowing seven runs over 5 1/3 innings in the loss.
That's now the second straight start in which Sale has given up seven runs, a bit of a concerning trend for a pitcher of Sale's ilk. On Tuesday it was the long ball, as Sale served up two homers among his six hits allowed. As usual, Sale did strike out nine in the start. Sale is now 9-7 with a 3.52 ERA and 1.08 WHIP, and he'll look to get back in the win column Monday against the Angels.
Brewers recalled RHP Tyler Cravy from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Cravy has yielded five runs across 15 innings with the big club this season. He'll be used in long relief.
Brewers optioned RHP Preston Guilmet to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Claimed off waivers last week, Guilmet was rocked for six runs over an inning of work in his last appearance with the Brew Crew. Tyler Cravy is taking his spot in the bullpen.
Chris Archer limited the White Sox to two runs over seven innings in Tuesday's win.
Archer yielded six hits and a walk, striking out seven in the start. In an unlikely turn of events, Archer earned his first win since June 23 on Tuesday despite being opposed by Chris Sale. Archer is now 10-8 with a 2.54 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 180/34 K/BB ratio over 148 2/3 innings. His next start will come Tuesday against the Braves.
Preston Tucker left Tuesday's game versus the Rangers after being hit on his right triceps by a pitch.
He was understandably sore but just has a bruise and should be fine. Tucker singled in one of his two at-bats before exiting.
Yankees optioned RHP Nicholas Rumbelow to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Rumbelow has fared well with the big club this season, allowing just one run over six appearances. The Yanks needed to clear a roster spot for Luis Severino, who will be promoted to make his major league debut Wednesday.
Matt Duffy went 4-for-5 with an RBI double, a run scored and a stolen base as the Giants topped the Braves 8-3 on Tuesday.
Duffy had three singles to go with his RBI double, and the steal was his fifth of the year. The infielder hasn't had back-to-back hitless games since July 2-3, and Tuesday's outburst has his line up to .309/.346/.465. He'll have some stiff competition, but Duffy is square in the middle of the Rookie of the Year race in the National League.
Daniel Castro went 3-for-4 with two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.
Castro accounted for two of the Braves' three runs on the evening. The multi-hit game was the infielder's first since being recalled on July 25. Castro is hitting .316 through his first eight games in the majors.
