Carlos Correa homered for the fourth time in as many games, finishing 1-for-5 in a loss to the Rangers on Monday.

Correa gave the Astros an early 2-0 lead with a first-inning home run off of Colby Lewis, but it was quickly forgotten when the opposition posted a six-spot in the bottom half. The shortstop has done nothing but hit since arriving in the major leagues, currently the proud owner of a .297/.344/.573 triple-slash line along with 13 home runs and 34 RBI in 209 plate appearances.

The Astros will option Lance McCullers to the minors after he lasted just one-third of an innings in Monday's loss to the Rangers.

The club is giving him some rest, as he might not do any throwing while in the minors. McCullers hadn't shown any signs before Monday that his career-high workload might be getting to him, as he posted a 3.13 ERA in July and tossed seven frames of one-run ball in his previous outing. He'll be eligible to rejoin the rotation in 10 days and could be back at that time. Dan Straily will take McCullers' spot in the rotation.

Jason Castro went 2-for-4 with a double and a grand slam in Monday's loss to the Rangers.

Castro unloaded the bases with a four-bagger in the fourth inning against Colby Lewis, bringing the Astros back into the game at 11-7. The catcher has hit safely in seven consecutive games and hit home runs in three of his last four contests. Castro's surge has brought his modest batting line up to .225/.289/.406 with 10 home runs and 29 RBI.

Adrian Beltre hit for the cycle, going 4-for-5 as the Rangers fended off the Astros on Monday.

Beltre achieved the cycle in his first four at-bats. He hit a two-run triple and later scored as part of a six-run first inning. Then he doubled in the second inning, singled and scored in the third, and drilled a solo home run in the fifth to complete the cycle. It's the third time in his career he's hit for the cycle. Beltre's OPS is back above .700 for the first time since the end of May. He's hitting .270/.312/.417 with nine home runs and 30 RBI.

An MRI has revealed that Andrelton Simmons has a bone bruise in his right thumb.

Simmons suffered the injury when he tried to make a diving catch during Saturday's game. The shortstop was feeling much better on Monday and it doesn't appear at this point that the disabled list is under consideration.

Tyson Ross allowed three runs (two earned) in six innings, earning his eighth win as the Padres vanquished the Brewers 13-5 on Monday.

Ross worked around seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts. Only one of the hits went for extra bases. Though he hasn't been as dominant as he was in 2014, the right-hander has strong numbers through 23 starts, boasting a 3.37 ERA with a 1.39 WHIP and a 142/63 K/BB ratio over 133 2/3 innings. Ross matches up with the Phillies at home next.

Justin Upton left Monday's game against the Brewers with a bruised right thumb.

It had looked like Upton was pulled Monday simply to get him some rest with such a big lead, but apparently he's dealing with a big of a thumb issue. The Padres are calling him day-to-day for the time being, but he would figure to miss at least a game or two.
Aug 3 - 11:40 PM

Wily Peralta was smoked for six runs in 3 1/3 innings, taking the loss on Monday against the Padres.

The Padres scored in each of the four innings in which Peralta appeared, including a three-spot in the second inning. The right-hander gave up eight hits, walked three, uncorked a wild pitch, and struck out two on the evening. He's shown promise at times this season, but has been prone to rough outings such as Monday's. Overall, Peralta carries a 4.55 ERA, a 1.50 WHIP, and a 40/19 K/BB ratio over 63 1/3 innings. He'll have to work against the Cardinals in a home start next.
