Mat Latos pitched well in Sunday's tough 2-1 loss to the Cubs, yielding one run on one hits over seven innings.

Latos has pitched erratically this season, but he worked more as Mr. Hyde than Dr. Jekyll against the Cubs on Sunday, striking out seven against two walks, with the only run to score coming when he threw a wild pitch with a runner on third in the first inning. That would be all that the Cubs needed to stick Latos with the hard-luck 2-0 defeat. At the end of June, Fox Sports' Jon Morosi reported that multiple teams had inquired about some of the Marlin starters, including Latos. It's possible we'll see him in a different uniform in the coming weeks, though that's just informed speculation at this point. Latos 4.90 ERA and 1.31 WHIP are disappointing, but given that he's never posted an ERA higher than 3.50 in any full season in his career, a change of scenery could do him wonders.
Jul 5 - 5:16 PM

Braves purchased the contract of RHP David Carpenter from Triple-A Gwinnett.

The 27-year-old hurler sports a 0.73 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 36/15 K/BB ratio over 37 frames at Triple-A. He'll work in middle relief for the Braves.
Jul 5 - 5:15 PM

Braves designated LHP Dana Eveland for assignment.

The veteran southpaw posted a 6.00 ERA, 2.67 WHIP and 4/3 K/BB ratio in his three innings with the big league club. It's unclear if he'll look to latch on elsewhere, or accept an assignment to Triple-A and continue to provide organizational bullpen depth.
Jul 5 - 5:13 PM

Tommy Pham went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and an RBI double in Sunday's win over the Padres.

Pham drove in all three Cardinal runs, all off of Padres starter Ian Kennedy. He smacked a two-run homer in the third inning and an RBI double in the fifth. As long as the Cardinals continue to grapple with outfield injuries, Pham figures to see at-bats. He hit .338/.402/.625 with five homers and six steals in 24 games for Triple-A Memphis and owners in deeper leagues might want to keep an eye on him to see if he's able to string together a little hot streak before pitchers catch up to his tendencies.
Jul 5 - 5:12 PM

Braves designated RHP Nick Masset for assignment.

The 33-year-old right-hander owns a 3.60 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 18/8 K/BB ratio across 25 innings with the Marlins and Braves this season. He could generate interest on waivers from team's desperate for bullpen help.
Jul 5 - 5:11 PM

Roberto Osuna got the final four outs of Sunday's 10-5 win against the Tigers, snagging his third save.

Osuna entered with runners on first and second with two outs in the eighth inning and struck out Rajai Davis to end the threat. In the ninth, he worked around a leadoff single to end the game quietly. Osuna has been the Jays' most reliable arm in the bullpen, getting credit for seven holds along with three saves in four opportunities while sporting a 2.13 ERA and a 43/10 K/BB ratio in 37 2/3 innings. He seems to be the Jays' current favorite for saves but that will change if the club makes a trade in the next three and a half weeks.
Jul 5 - 5:09 PM

Matt Kemp went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

Kemp's single was one of just three that Padres compiled as a team, and the only one to do any damage, as it brought a run home against Lance Lynn in the third inning. That run would be the only one scored in the losing effort. Kemp's currently posting the worst batting average of his career and is hitting just .241/.282/.359 with six homers and 42 RBI. Last season, he slashed .287/.346/.506 for the Dodgers.
Jul 5 - 5:05 PM

Tigers recalled LHP Ian Krol from Triple-A Toledo.

While Krol owns a spectacular 0.89 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 22/9 K/BB ratio over 20 1/3 innings at Triple-A, he simply has not been able to get the job done at the big league level this season. He'll work in middle relief for the Tigers.
