Robinson Cano expects to be in the Mariners lineup on Monday after getting hit by a pitch on his ankle in Sunday's game.
There's still a chance that his ankle could swell on the trip back to Seattle, or the Mariners could give him a day to rest as a precaution, but expect to see him in the M's lineup for Monday's series opener against the Tigers.
Bryce Harper was the leading vote getter in the entire National League for the All-Star game, garnering 13,864,950 ballots.
It will be the third time in his first four years in the big leagues that he has made the National League squad. He'll be joined by Paul Goldschmidt, Dee Gordon, Todd Frazier, Jhonny Peralta, Buster Posey, Giancarlo Stanton and Matt Holliday in the starting lineup for the senior circuit. Stanton is on the disabled list and will not be able to appear in the game, and Holliday's status is up in the air.
While it wasn't the complete sweep that Royals fans had pushed so hard for, four Royals were voted in as starters for the American League squad in the 2015 All-Star game.
Alcides Escobar and Salvador Perez were each the leading vote getters at their respective positions, while Lorenzo Cain and Alex Gordon finished second and third respectively in the outfield. They'll join Miguel Cabrera, Jose Altuve, Josh Donaldson, Nelson Cruz and Mike Trout as the fan's picks to start the mid-summer classic, though Cabrera is on the disabled list and will not be able to play in the game.
Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports that the Marlins will recall Jordany Valdespin from Triple-A New Orleans.
He'll take the spot of Marcell Ozuna on the Marlins active roster after the outfielder was demoted on Sunday. Valdespin was pulled from his game at Triple-A shortly afterwards and is heading to join the team in Boston for Tuesday's game, though the move hasn't been announced yet.
Yasmany Tomas went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and three RBI in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.
Tomas launched his fifth homer in the season when he took Jorge De La Rosa deep to right for a solo shot in the second inning. He also drove in runs with a sacrifice fly and a single, finishing out 2-for-3. The Cuban import has played well in his first 65 major league games, slashing .315/.352/.448 with five homers and 35 RBI. Given that the Diamondbacks didn't feel confident enough with Tomas to carry him on the Opening Day roster, he's shown an impressive development to this point and could reasonably put up improved power numbers in the second half of the season. The average is already there.
Troy Tulowitzki hit a three-run homer in the first inning and went 2-for-5 with two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.
Tulowitzki's three-run bomb in the first inning was his ninth homer of the season. He's been his typically brilliant self this season, slashing .321/.358/.489. While the power's down from some of his best seasons, Tulo's been healthy to this point, which is what matters most for the oft-injured star. Management has stressed that the shortstop won't be traded, but expect his name to at least surface in rumors over the next three weeks, even if he doesn't ultimately change uniforms.
Jorge De La Rosa posted a quality start in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks, allowing two runs on five hits over six innings.
De La Rosa was facing off with Diamondback starter Rubby De La Rosa. The Rockies' species of De La Rosa far out-pitched the Diamondback species, holding the home team down for just a pair of runs over six innings. Yasmany Tomas accounted for both runs on his line with a solo home run in the second inning and a sacrifice fly in the sixth. For the season, De La Rosa is pitching to a 4.46 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 66/37 K/BB ratio in 70 2/3 innings. A home start against the Braves finishes out his schedule before the All-Star Break.
Rubby De La Rosa struggled in Sunday's loss to the Rockies, allowing six runs on eight hits over five-plus innings.
De La Rosa was bit by the home run bug, serving up a three-run shot to Troy Tulowitzki in the first inning and a two-run bomb to Carlos Gonzalez in the sixth. The rough start pushed an already lackluster ERA from 4.60 to 4.89. In addition, De La Rosa holds a 1.27 WHIP and 97/27 K/BB ratio over 106 2/3 innings. The strikeouts are there, and De La Rosa had pitched well in his previous four starts, but these kinds of big letdowns are ERA killers. He'll try to get back on the right track when he takes on the Mets at Citi Field in the Diamondbacks' final game before the All-Star Break.
