Reds manager Bryan Price said he doesn't believe Brandon Phillips' left thumb injury to be "brutal."

"We'll do due diligence to get much more depth on the injury," Price said. "It can be more significant than we believe it is and hope it is as this point in time. But right now, the initial signs are it's not a brutal injury and we can have him back sooner than later." Phillips appeared to be in some pain when he got the thumb caught while diving for a ball in the eighth inning, and he was seen leaving the clubhouse with a brace on the thumb after the game. More should be known about his outlook in the coming days.

Robbie Grossman went 4-for-5 with a homer and a double as the Astros beat the Rangers 8-4 on Wednesday.

Grossman, who was just recalled Tuesday after a couple of weeks back in Triple-A, snapped an 0-for-28 slump that dated back to June 9. He'll get a few more starts this week with Dexter Fowler and Alex Presley out, but he might not be much of a factor afterwards.
Jul 9 - 11:41 PM

Dallas Keuchel pitched 6 2/3 innings and allowed four runs Wednesday in a win over the Rangers.

Keuchel got the win, but it was another start that didn't measure up to his performances prior to his wrist injury. He struck out three and walked one against a mediocre offense tonight, and if not for a couple of nice plays from Enrique Hernandez, the outing could have gone considerably worse. How much the wrist was a factor is hard to say, but it remains a source of concern.
Jul 9 - 11:39 PM

Yu Darvish turned in a rocky start against the Astros on Wednesday, giving up six runs and 10 hits in six innings.

This makes four times in five starts and five times in seven that Darvish has given up at least four runs. He's still striking out plenty of batters, and while the walks have been up, that wasn't a factor tonight. Instead, he was just hit harder than practically any other time in his career. It's the second time in 78 major league starts that he's given up 10 hits and the second time he's given up at least five extra-base hits (he allowed six).
Jul 9 - 11:37 PM

Jake Smolinski had three more hits Wednesday and is 5-for-10 since being called up by the Rangers on Monday.

Smolinski's minor league averages the last five years have ranged from .245 to .267, so expecting him to keep racking up hits in the majors is asking for a lot. He could have some short-term AL-only value for the Rangers, but he's not a good rest-of-season bet.

Carlos Rodon and the White Sox have agreed upon a deal for more than $6.45 million, pending a physical, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

The third overall selection in the 2014 MLB Draft, Rodon got more than the $5.7 million slot amount. WRAL-TV's Jeff Graley, who first broke the news of the agreement, expects Rodon to be assigned to High-A Winston-Salem. He should be a fast-moving prospect who could be in Chicago at some point in 2015.
Jul 9 - 11:23 PM

Jonathan Papelbon picked up the save for the third consecutive day, slamming the door on the Brewers in the ninth inning as the Phillies earned a 4-1 victory on Wednesday.

Papelbon had another 1-2-3 inning, also his third in a row. The Phillies will likely have to rely on Jake Diekman or Ken Giles in the ninth inning if they need to in Thursday afternoon's series finale. Papelbon is 22-for-24 in save chances with a 1.24 ERA, 0.85 WHIP, and a 32/9 K/BB ratio in 36 1/3 innings.
Jul 9 - 11:08 PM

Jimmy Rollins broke a 1-1 tie with a two-run home run in the sixth inning as the Phillies defeated the Brewers on Wednesday.

Rollins' homer off of Kyle Lohse, which turned out to be the game-winning hit, was his first home run in over a month. The shortstop hasn't done a whole lot offensively after a quick start to the season, but still has average numbers relative to his position. He is slashing .240/.325/.375 with nine home runs, 34 RBI, and 17 stolen bases.
