Shelby Miller tossed 5 1/3 scoreless innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Nationals.
Miller walked five batters, but the Nationals bailed him out with some ugly at-bats in high-leverage situations and the 23-year-old right-hander wound up dropping his season ERA from 4.67 to 3.57. He'll have to be sharper in his next start at home against the Pirates. Miller does have a 1.77 career ERA at Busch Stadium.
Angels optioned RHP Josh Wall to Triple-A Salt Lake.
The 27-year-old appeared in two games during his brief stay with the Angels, surrendering six runs on five hits in just one inning of work. He'll continue to function as organizational depth.
Rick Porcello tossed seven innings of one-run ball in the Tigers' 2-1 win over the Angels on Sunday.
It was a promising bounceback effort from Porcello, who was tagged for five runs on 10 hits last Friday against a weak Padres team. He held a dangerous Anaheim offense to five hits on Sunday afternoon in Detroit while striking out four and issuing just one walk. Porcello will carry a 2-1 record, 3.15 ERA, and 1.05 WHIP into his next scheduled start against the Twins at Target Field.
Carlos Carrasco was knocked around again but escaped with a no-decision Sunday, giving up four runs over 5 2/3 frames in a 6-4 win over the Blue Jays.
Carrasco whiffed five but permitted six hits and walked three, throwing 88 pitches over 5 2/3 innings. With a 7.31 ERA and 1.69 WHIP through his first three starts, Carrasco is going to have to shape up in a hurry to avoid getting booted from the rotation. He'll try to bounce back next weekend in San Francisco.
John Axford skated on thin ice again but managed to nail down his sixth save with a scoreless frame in Sunday's win over the Blue Jays.
Axford gave up a couple singles and a walk to load the bases with Edwin Encarnacion with two outs. He got a gift called strike on a 3-0 count and eventually got E5 to ground out into the shift. While Ax has converted six saves in seven chances, he's walked seven in 7 2/3 innings and has a pedestrian 3.52 ERA and 1.57 WHIP. Cody Allen -- who still hasn't given up a run -- continues to look like the best reliever Cleveland has.
Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson confirmed Sunday that Mike Bolsinger will remain in the rotation to start against the Cubs in Chicago on Thursday.
Bolsinger struggled in his MLB debut on Saturday, allowing six earned runs in four innings of work against the Dodgers. He remains an unattractive option in all but NL-only formats.
Steve Cishek worked out of a ninth inning jam to earn his third save of the season, securing the Marlins' 3-2 win over the Mariners on Sunday.
Cishek started the inning by allowing a leadoff double to Corey Hart, and a groundout left a runner at third with one out. After a walk to Justin Smoak, the right-hander buckled down, striking out Nick Franklin and pinch-hitter Michael Saunders to end the game. Cishek is 3-for-3 in save opportunities and still hasn't allowed a run over six innings to start the year.
Corey Hart went 2-for-4 with two doubles in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.
Hart scored the Mariners' first run of the game following the double, and he was replaced for a pinch-runner after leading off the ninth inning with another two-base hit. The right fielder is hitting .269 in his first three weeks of action after missing all of 2013 with knee injuries.
