Scott Feldman said his knee bothered him Thursday against the Cubs.

The right-hander got blown up for six runs in only 3 2/3 innings Thursday and his fastball was barely hitting 82 mph. Feldman hasn't looked right since coming off the DL earlier this month and admitted as much after the game. "If it doesn’t get any better, I don’t think I can pitch like that anymore," he said. "We’ll see." If anything, Feldman's knee seems to be getting worse, not better. With nothing left to play for this year, the Reds may consider shutting Feldman down for the season. Headed for free agency this winter, Thursday may very well have been Feldman's final start in a Reds uniform.

Stephen Strasburg (elbow) is expected to return Saturday against the Padres.

He'll return to the mound in his home city of San Diego after missing roughly three weeks with an elbow impingement. Strasburg looked sharp in his lone rehab start, fanning five over five innings of one-run ball Monday for High-A Potomac. The former first overall pick has been steady as ever this year, going 10-3 with a 3.28 ERA over 20 starts for the first-place Nats.

Robbie Grossman left the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Indians with a left thumb injury.

He injured himself in a near-collision with Byron Buxton in center field. Max Kepler pinch-hit for Grossman and replaced him in right field. Grossman singled in his only at-bat before exiting.

Chris Archer scattered five hits and three runs over seven strong innings Thursday in a no-decision against the Blue Jays.

Archer served up a pair of solo homers to Josh Donaldson but was otherwise lights out. He finished his afternoon with 10 strikeouts and didn’t walk anyone. Archer has fanned 10 or more hitters in three of his last six outings, though he’s only won once during that span. He’ll take a 3.84 ERA into his next start Wednesday against the very same Jays he just faced.

Evan Longoria reached base four times Thursday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

Longoria singled, doubled and walked twice. His wall-ball double in the eighth, which fell just out of Ezequiel Carrera’s reach in center field, knotted the game at three, though Justin Smoak broke the tie with a solo blast later in the inning. The Rays’ long-time third baseman has hit .268 with 17 homers and 68 RBI this season.

Mallex Smith tripled and drove in a run Thursday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

The triple, which drove in Adeiny Hechavarria for Tampa Bay’s first run of the afternoon, was Smith’s only hit of the game. In fact, his day ended in the sixth inning when Trevor Plouffe replaced him as a pinch-hitter. Smith’s days as a regular in Tampa could be coming to an end with Gold Glove center-fielder Kevin Kiermaier (hip) slated to return this weekend.
Aug 17 - 8:33 PM

Chris Rowley spanned five innings Thursday against the Rays, allowing four hits and two runs in a no-decision.

The West Point grad walked five and struck out three while throwing 51 of his 90 pitches for strikes. Rowley struggled with his control at times but kept the damage to a minimum. He left with the lead, though Tampa Bay eventually tied the game at three on an RBI double by Evan Longoria in the eighth inning. Even if he didn’t get the win, it was impressive to see Rowley match Rays starter Chris Archer in only his second major league start. He’ll face the Rays again in his next start Wednesday at Tropicana Field.
Aug 17 - 8:32 PM

Justin Smoak propelled the Blue Jays to victory by belting a go-ahead home run Thursday against the Rays.

Smoak broke a 3-3 tie by smashing a two-run bomb off Tommy Hunter in the eighth inning. He also drove in a run with an RBI single in the third. Smoak has singlehandedly kept Toronto in the Wild Card hunt with his breakout season, setting career-highs in both homers (33) and RBI (80). Crazy as it may seem, he’s become a legitimate MVP candidate.
