Travis Wood struggled in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Friday afternoon, surrendering five runs (two earned) on seven hits over his five innings of work.

The veteran southpaw punched out five while walking one. He struggled to keep the ball in the yard on a windy day at Wrigley Field, serving up a pair of solo home runs to Matt Carpenter and Matt Holliday. On the plus side, he managed to help his own cause by blasting his third long ball of the season. He’ll carry a disappointing 5.06 ERA and 1.53 WHIP into Wednesday’s matchup against the Rockies
Jul 25 - 7:57 PM

Matt Holliday had three hits, including his ninth home run of the season on Friday, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

Holliday connected on a solo blast off Travis Wood in the fifth inning, knotting the score at 5-5. With the three-hit effort, he’s now hitting .269/.374/.414 with the nine homers, 52 RBI and a pair of stolen bases on the season.
Jul 25 - 7:54 PM

Matt Carpenter went 3-for-5 and belted a solo home run in a losing effort against the Cubs on Friday afternoon.

Carpenter’s solo shot off Travis Wood in the fifth inning was his sixth homer of the season. He’s enjoying another very solid season atop the Cardinals lineup, slashing .282/.375/.393 with 65 runs scored and 36 RBI.
Jul 25 - 7:54 PM

Joe Kelly was hit hard in Friday’s no-decision against the Cubs, allowing five runs on eight hits over just 4 2/3 frames.

The right-hander struck out four and walked two on the afternoon. Most of the damage against him came via the long ball, with Ryan Sweeney blasting a three-run homer in the second inning and opposing starter Travis Wood connecting on a solo shot in the fourth. He’ll look to get back on track when he does battle against the Padres in San Diego on Thursday.

Kyle Gibson (back) will throw a bullpen session on Saturday, and if all goes well he will make his next start on Tuesday against the Royals.

He had been scheduled to start on Wednesday, but was scratched due to back stiffness. The 26-year-old owns an 8-8 record, 4.19 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 54/30 K/BB ratio over 107 1/3 innings through his first 19 starts.
Jul 25 - 7:48 PM

Michael Saunders (oblique) began taking swings in the indoor batting cages on Friday.

It's seen as a good sign in the outfielder's recovery from a strained left oblique. He has been sidelined since July 11, and is likely to need a minor league rehab assignment before returning, so don't expect him back with the M's until early August.
Jul 25 - 7:45 PM

Manny Machado (back) remains out of the Orioles starting lineup for the fourth consecutive game on Friday.

The annoying pain in his lower back continues to linger, and it remains unclear when exactly he will be able to rejoin the O's lineup. Ryan Flaherty will get the start at the hot corner in his absence.
Jul 25 - 7:11 PM

Gerrit Cole (lat) is scheduled to make his first minor league rehab start with Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday.

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle indicated that he would be limited to 80-85 pitches in the ballgame. If all goes well, he could be cleared to rejoin the Pirates rotation shortly afterwards.
