Astros optioned RHP Vincent Velasquez to Double-A Corpus Christi.

It's a move made in order to conserve Velasquez's innings, as he won't pitch for Corpus Christi. The young right-hander will rejoin the Astros' rotation just after the All-Star break. He holds a 3.94 ERA, a 1.31 WHIP, and a 31/14 K/BB ratio over 32 innings.
Jul 7 - 10:47 PM

Michael Brantley went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, helping the Indians fend off the Astros on Tuesday.

Brantley singled with two outs in the first inning and came around to score on David Murphy's double. He then clobbered a solo home run in the sixth inning to add an insurance run. Though he hasn't been nearly as dominant at the plate as he was last year, Brantley is still batting a productive .293/.365/.425 with five home runs, 43 RBI, 31 runs scored, and nine stolen bases.

Vincent Velasquez pitched well over 6 1/3 innings, allowing only two runs, but took the loss on Tuesday against the Indians.

The young right-hander had the misfortune of opposing Corey Kluber, as he pitched well enough to win on most other nights. He held the Indians to six hits and a pair of walks while fanning five. David Murphy knocked in the first run with a double in the first inning, and Michael Brantley added the other with a home run. Velasquez, in six starts, has a 3.94 ERA, a 1.31 WHIP, and a 31/14 K/BB ratio over 32 innings. He'll start in Tampa against the Rays to lead his team into the All-Star break.
Jul 7 - 10:43 PM

Corey Kluber hurled 6 2/3 shutout innings to earn the win on Tuesday against the Astros.

Kluber limited the opposition to five hits (all singles) and two walks with seven strikeouts. The right-hander has looked downright dominating at times and pedestrian at other points this season. Altogether, he has a 3.45 ERA with a 1.13 WHIP and a 148/26 K/BB ratio in 125 1/3 innings. Kluber will close the chapter on the first half at home against the Athletics next.
Jul 7 - 10:39 PM

Tyler Clippard kept the Yankees off the board in the 10th inning, snagging his 16th save in Tuesday's 4-3 win.

Clippard caused some nail-biting, as he walked two batters to put the tying run in scoring position with two outs for Mark Teixeira. The right-hander was able to fan the slugger to end the contest. Clippard has done a commendable job as the closer, filling in for Sean Doolittle. He's 16-for-18 in save chances with a 2.52 ERA and a 34/18 K/BB ratio in 35 2/3 innings.
Jul 7 - 10:36 PM

Sonny Gray tossed seven solid innings, allowing three runs, but was handed a no-decision as the Athletics needed 10 innings to beat the Yankees on Tuesday.

Gray was victimized by back-to-back RBI singles in the first inning, then allowed another RBI single in the fourth. They were three of six hits he gave up on the evening along with three walks and five strikeouts. Gray has been much more hittable in his last three starts, but still maintains a stellar 2.20 ERA with a 1.01 WHIP and a 102/29 K/BB ratio in 114 2/3 innings. His final first half start will come in Cleveland against the Indians.
Jul 7 - 10:33 PM

Nathan Eovaldi limited the Athletics to two runs in 5 1/3 innings, but took a no-decision as the Yankees lost in 10 innings on Tuesday.

Eovaldi allowed run-scoring singles in the first and third innings, accounting for both runs. He got Ben Zobrist to ground out for the first out in the sixth inning before departing at 86 pitches in favor of Chasen Shreve. Eovaldi gave up six hits and a walk while striking out four. He's put together four solid outings in a row, though he hasn't been able to escape the sixth inning in his last two. He owns a 4.45 ERA with a 1.53 WHIP and a 67/26 K/BB ratio in 93 innings. Eovaldi will close out the first half in Boston against the Red Sox.
Jul 7 - 10:30 PM

Denard Span (back) is expected to miss at least a few games.

The MRI results on Span's back aren't available yet, but Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington reports that the outfielder "sounds like guy who accepts he needs some time off," and is "worried this could get worse by playing hurt." Obviously more will be known once the MRI results are in.
