Matt Moore was on his game in Wednesday's win over the Dodgers, allowing just one run (none earned) on four hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Moore struck out five on the afternoon, but he also issued four walks. Even with that inefficiency, he exited with two outs in the seventh having thrown only 98 pitches (57 strikes). The unearned run that scored against him came when catcher Luke Maile made a throwing error on a Joc Pederson steal in the second inning. The error allowed Pederson to scoot on home. Moore is a potential trade chip for the Rays as they near the trade deadline. Should he make his next start with his current club, it would come at home against the Royals next Tuesday. He has pitched to a 4.08 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 109/40 K/BB ratio across 130 innings.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said that Luis Valbuena's hamstring injury is "something that's going to take a couple days [to recover from]."

Valbuena suffered a right hamstring strain while running down the first base line in the second inning of Tuesday's loss to the Yankees. The Astros have an off day on Thursday. Beyond that, Hinch said that because the Tigers will start southpaw Matt Boyd on Friday, the Astros might sit him until Saturday. Valbunea shouldn't be considered in the clear quite yet, but with the way the team is talking, he might just be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list. Hamstrings, of course, are notoriously balky.

Jose Reyes (intercostal strain) will not play until Friday at the earliest.

Reyes suffered a Grade 1 intercostal strain during Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals. He was administered an anti-inflammatory shot on Tuesday night. In terms of silver linings, Reyes at least avoided re-breaking the rib he fractured during the opening week of the 2015 season. He initially feared that Tuesday's injury might be a case of history repeating itself.

Brandon McCarthy failed to provide the Dodgers length in Wednesday's loss to the Rays, yielding three runs on four hits over four innings.

McCarthy struck out seven and walked two on the afternoon. All three runs on his line scored in the fourth inning, with Evan Longoria burning him for a two-run homer and Luke Maile notching an RBI double. In his five starts since returning from Tommy John surgery earlier this year, McCarthy has pitched to a 2.39, 0.84 WHIP and 33/9 K/BB ratio over 26 1/3 innings. A road date with the Rockies shows next on his schedule.

Sean Doolittle (shoulder) played catch on Tuesday.

Doolittle had been performing sock throws (range-of-motion exercises) as he rehabs from a left shoulder strain which waylaid him near the end of June. He has graduated to actually playing catch (like with a baseball), now. A return in mid-to-late August could be in-play for the 29-year-old reliever.

Jay Bruce - OF - Reds

Jay Bruce went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Giants.

Trade rumors have been bubbling around Bruce's name of late, with ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reporting that the Reds have been pushing dialogues with interested parties as they look to throw in the towel on the 2016 season. For the time being, though, Bruce still plies his trade with the Reds. And he still plies it well. Against the Giants, the slugger rocked a solo home run off Madison Bumgarner to lead off the seventh inning. The bomb snapped a 1-1 tie and stood as the difference in the 2-1 final. Bruce's trade value probably can't get much higher at this point. He is slashing a beautiful .271/.323/.572 with 25 homers and 79 RBI across 362 at-bats. The 29-year-old outfielder has launched home runs in five consecutive games and has homered seven times in his last 10 contests. That is how you increase your trade value.
Jul 27 - 7:27 PM

Conor Gillaspie went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Reds.

Gillaspie connected for a solo home run off Dan Straily in the third inning. That would stand as the Giants' only run of the contest. It was Gillaspie's fourth dinger of the 2016 campaign. In addition to that quartet of taters, the 29-year-old third baseman is slashing .250/.298/.405 and has driven in 16 runs in 116 at-bats. He holds no fantasy value.

Rangers designated INF Matt E. Duffy for assignment.

Poor, poor Duffy. He just hasn't a great go of things lately. The Astros designated him for assignment on July 16. He was subsequently scooped up off waivers by the Rangers on July 23, but just four days later, has once again been DFA'ed. The 27-year-old infielder has received only 12 major league plate appearances in his career to-date.
