Joakim Soria blew his second save of the season, forking over a run in the bottom of the 13th inning as the Rangers went on to lose in 14.

The Rangers had taken a 1-0 lead on J.P. Arencibia's 13th-inning solo home run, but Soria immediately got into trouble, allowing a lead-off double to Brett Gardner in the bottom half. Jacoby Ellsbury later knocked Gardner in with a single. Soria is now 17-for-19 in save chances with a 2.70 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, and a 42/4 K/BB ratio.

J.P. Arencibia broke a 0-0 tie in the 13th inning, his only hit in five at-bats, but the Rangers lost in 14 innings to the Yankees on Tuesday.

Arencibia took David Huff out to right-center to give the Rangers a 1-0 lead in the 13th, but closer Joakim Soria gave the run right back in the bottom half of the inning. Arencibia has had a miserable year offensively, but he has homered in two of five games since the All-Star break. He's slashing a terrible .139/.186/.291 with three home runs and 10 RBI in 86 plate appearances.

Mike Olt - 3B - Cubs

Cubs optioned 3B Mike Olt to Triple-A Iowa.

The last straw was Olt going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts Tuesday, dropping his season line to .139/.222/.353 and his K/BB ratio to 84/19. Olt obviously has plus raw power, but he has a lot of holes in his swing and could struggle to carve out a long-term niche on a team with a boatload of position prospect on the way.

Scott Carroll was roughed up for 11 hits and five runs over five innings in a loss to the Royals on Tuesday.

The right-hander, who had allowed just three hits and zero runs over his past two starts combined, gave up five extra-base hits, including a home run, in the loss. He also walked two and struck out three. Carroll owns a 4.52 ERA and 1.53 WHIP through 73 2/3 innings, and he's a non-factor for fantasy purposes going forward.
Jul 23 - 12:06 AM

Chase Headley made his Yankees debut in style, delivering a walk-off single in the 14th inning against the Rangers on Tuesday.

Headley took his first at-bat as a Yankee in the eighth inning and struck out. He stayed in the game, grounding out twice in his next two at-bats before driving in Brian Roberts with his 14th-inning single. The Yankees acquired Headley earlier in the day. Overall, he is slashing .230/.296/.353 with seven home runs and 45 RBI on the season.
Jul 23 - 12:04 AM

Carlos Santana went 4-for-5 with a home run and nine total bases as the Indians cruised past the Twins 8-2 on Tuesday.

Santana had just three extra-base hits in his previous nine games, but the 28-year-old added two doubles to go with his 15th home run of the year. If anything, he deserved to have an even better night from a statistical standpoint -- the homer came with nobody on, and his other three hits drove in just one run combined. The four-hit evening raised his season line to .214/.353/.401.
Jul 23 - 12:01 AM

Jesus Guzman was back in the Astros' lineup on Tuesday.

Guzman had to be scratched from Sunday's contest with back discomfort. "My back is much better today, and from yesterday to today I feel way better than last week," he said Tuesday.
Jul 22 - 11:58 PM

Kyle Gibson has been scratched from Wednesday's scheduled start against the Indians due to a stiff back.

He should be fine for his next outing or maybe even later in the week, but the Twins wanted to play it safe. Anthony Swarzak will make a spot start in Gibson's place.
