Jung Ho Kang went 3-for-4 with an RBI double and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Reds.

Kang had two doubles on the night. He continues to swing and incredibly hot bat, hitting .435 (27-for-62) over his last 17 games. His batting average is now up to .299 on the year.

Marlon Byrd went 2-for-3 with a solo homer, a walk, and two runs scored Friday against the Pirates.

Byrd has gone deep in back-to-back games and now has 18 homers and a .779 OPS on the year. It's a bit surprising he wasn't moved by Friday's non-waiver trade deadline, but there's still a chance a deal could happen in August.
Jul 31 - 10:30 PM

Freddie Freeman belted his 14th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Phillies on Friday.

The Phillies jumped out to an early 9-0 lead in this one, and Freeman's two-run shot in the eighth merely made it a 9-3 ballgame. He also singled in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-4 and raising his season slash to .288/.354/.509 to go along with 14 bombs and 45 RBI.
Jul 31 - 10:30 PM

Williams Perez was clobbered in his return from the disabled list on Friday, giving up nine runs on nine hits over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Phillies.

Aside from being extremely hittable, Perez struggled with his command as well, issuing four free passes while striking out three. A three-run double by Ryan Howard and two-run blast by Domonic Brown inflicted the majority of the damage against the right-hander. He'll look to put this beating behind him and get back on track when he does battle against the Giants on Wednesday.
Jul 31 - 10:28 PM

Kyle Kendrick was forced to leave Friday's start against the Cardinals due to inflammation in his right shoulder.

Before departing, the right-hander had surrendered a pair of runs on four hits in his lone inning of work, including a home run by Matt Carpenter. He's considered day-to-day and should be ready to take his next turn through the rotation on Wednesday against the Mariners. He and his 6.43 ERA should continue to be avoided for fantasy purposes.
Jul 31 - 9:21 PM

Mike Wright was forced to leave Friday's game against the Tigers with a left calf cramp.

Wright was called in early to replace a struggling Wei-Yin Chen, then was forced to become a spectator himself after working a scoreless inning. He should be considered day-to-day.
Jul 31 - 8:51 PM

Phillies placed LHP Matt Harrison on the 15-day disabled list with lower back inflammation.

Harrison didn't look right in his three starts since returning from the disabled list, so the Phillies will play it cautiously and shut him down until he's fully healthy. There is no clear timetable for his return to the mound.
Jul 31 - 8:07 PM

Rockies manager Walt Weiss announced Friday that John Axford has been removed from his role as the team's closer.

Weiss said Friday, "I had a conversation with John a little earlier and I told him I was going to get him out of that ninth inning for a little bit and let him catch his breath". He has blown four saves in his last five appearances and has had difficulty finding the strike zone. Rafael Betancourt and Tommy Kahnle are the two most likely candidates to take over the role.
