Bruce Chen allowed two runs on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings of a no-decision against the Tigers on Sunday.

Chen, who's filling in for Jason Vargas as he recovers from an appendectomy, struck out two without walking a batter on the day. He owns a 6.46 ERA and 1.66 WHIP through 30 2/3 innings as a spot starter and long reliever.
Jul 13 - 6:01 PM

LHP Randy Wolf opted out of his contract with the Orioles.

The veteran southpaw has been toiling at Triple-A Norfolk where he registered a 4.20 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 12/5 K/BB ratio over 15 innings. He should be able to latch on elsewhere if he so chooses.
Jul 13 - 6:00 PM

Justin Verlander allowed four runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings in a loss to the Royals on Sunday.

Verlander struck out just three on the afternoon, walking one, in his first loss since June 16. Even with an 8-8 record, it's been a first half to forget for the former American League MVP. Verlander owns a 4.88 ERA and 1.46 WHIP through 20 starts, and the second half doesn't hold much more promise for the 31-year-old.
Jul 13 - 5:59 PM

RHP Chien Ming Wang opted out of his contract with the Reds.

That now makes the 34-year-old right-hander a free agent. He was pitching decently at Triple-A Louisville, compiling a 3.70 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 50/45 K/BB ratio over 119 1/3 innings. He should be able to secure a minor league deal elsewhere.
Jul 13 - 5:53 PM

Carlos Gomez propelled the Brewers to a huge 11-2 win over the Cardinals on Sunday, going 3-for-4 with three runs scored and two RBI on the day.

Gomez wrapped up an MVP-like first half with a great showing, scoring in the first, fourth and sixth innings. Gomez is among the league leaders in runs, stolen bases, slugging percentage and OPS at the break. He owns a .304/.370/.510 line, with his next start coming in Tuesday's All-Star Game.
Jul 13 - 5:42 PM

Scooter Gennett finished up a strong first half with a good day on Sunday, going 3-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored.

Gennett hit a two-run double in the fourth inning, driving in two of the Brewers' 11 runs. The second baseman is among the National League leaders with a .309 batting average through a surprising first half. Gennett has a .828 OPS to go with seven homers and five stolen bases, and he's definitely a mixed league asset in the second half.
Jul 13 - 5:36 PM

Suk-Min Yoon (shoulder) threw a successful simulated game on Sunday and is close to rejoining Triple-A Norfolk.

The 27-year-old has had a disappointing and injury-riddled season in his first year stateside, registering a 5.76 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 53/15 K/BB ratio over 75 innings at Triple-A Norfolk. He's unlikely to pitch for the Orioles this season.
Jul 13 - 5:31 PM

Aramis Ramirez went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

Ramirez had three of the Brewers' 19 hits on the afternoon. The third baseman is enjoying another strong season, collecting 11 home runs and 43 RBI in the first half. He'll carry a .288/.336/.459 line into the second half of the season.
