Jose Reyes stole a base, homered, and doubled in a run in five at-bats as the Jays slugged their way to a win against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

For Reyes, the two extra-base hits equaled his total over the previous two weeks. His solo shot in the sixth inning off of Jake Peavy gave the Jays a 2-0 lead. He added some insurance in the eighth with an RBI double to make it 7-1. The shortstop is now sporting a .276/.326/.420 slash line with eight home runs, 32 RBI, and 19 stolen bases.

Manny Machado was scratched from Tuesday's lineup with lower back tightness.

It's probably safe to call him day-to-day, but the Orioles don't want to take any chances with their stud young third baseman. Machado was replaced at third base by Ryan Flaherty.

ESPN's Jim Bowden reports that the Reds and Phillies "continue trade talks" involving Marlon Byrd.

Byrd has been linked to the Reds, Royals and Mariners this month and he's a good bet to be traded. The veteran outfielder has proved this year that his power outburst in 2013 was no fluke, hitting 19 homers over 98 games. He's making $8 million this season and in 2015 and has an $8 million club/vesting option for 2016.

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said that Roenis Elias "checked out fine" Tuesday after exiting Monday's start with a left forearm cramp.

Elias left the outing after 90 pitches when he cramped up, but it sounds like he'll be fine. The left-hander will start this weekend against the Orioles.
Jul 22 - 9:48 PM

Scooter Gennett left Tuesday's game against the Reds with right quad tightness.

It's not clear how Gennett was injured. He was hitless in two at-bats before being replaced by Rickie Weeks in the fifth inning. The Brewers should provide more clarity on Gennett's status after the game.
Jul 22 - 9:26 PM

Pedro Alvarez exited Tuesday's game against the Dodgers with left knee discomfort.

It's not clear when Alvarez was injured, nor is it clear how long he might be out, but the Pirates should provide an update after the game. The third baseman had a double in two at-bats and committed his league-leading 22nd error before leaving.
Jul 22 - 9:13 PM

George Springer (knee, quad) remained out of the Astros' lineup Tuesday.

It's the second straight game he's missed. When asked whether he feels more pain in his knee or quad, Springer said, "I just have overall kind of discomfort." An MRI revealed no structural damage, so for now the young outfielder remains day-to-day. "You have to say to yourself 'He's not going to play within the next 15 days,'" manager Bo Porter said of a possible DL stint for Springer. "We're not at that point right now."
Jul 22 - 9:03 PM

Reds outfield prospect Jesse Winker will miss the next 2-4 weeks with a strained tendon in his right wrist.

Winker will not require surgery, but the wrist is currently immobilized. Ranked by MLB.com prior to the season as the team's No. 3 prospect, Winker has batted .287/.399/.518 with 15 homers and 57 RBI between High- and Double-A this season.
