FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Blue Jays have agreed to acquire outfielder Melvin Upton from the Padres.

Jul 26 - 8:10 AM
Jay Bruce - OF - Reds

Jay Bruce hit a pair of two-run homers off Jake Peavy to lead the Reds to a 7-5 win over the Giants on Monday.

One last hurrah for Bruce in a Reds uniform? It was his third two-homer game of the season, the others coming on April 7 and May 18. He's tied with teammate Adam Duvall for fifth place in the NL with 23 homers.
Jul 26 - 1:58 AM

Raisel Iglesias pitched two perfect innings out of the pen for his fourth hold Monday against the Giants.

Iglesias has been the Reds' best reliever since coming off the disabled list, but the team has continued to use him as a multi-inning guy, suggesting that he won't soon be a threat for saves. He's allowed just one run in 20 1/3 innings over his 10 appearances as a reliever.
Jul 26 - 1:56 AM

Jake Peavy gave up three homers and six runs over five-plus innings Monday in a loss to the Reds.

Peavy had a great run in late May and June, but he's given up 20 runs -- 17 earned -- over 25 1/3 innings in his last five starts. His rotation spot could again come into jeopardy if he's not better next time out.
Jul 26 - 1:55 AM

Eugenio Suarez had a two-run homer and a double Monday against the Giants.

It's disappointing that Suarez's OBP has been hanging right around .300 for much of the year, but he's up to 17 homers now. It's too bad those homers have come with just seven doubles and a 100/27 K/BB ratio in 345 at-bats.
Jul 26 - 1:53 AM

Brandon Belt went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer as the Giants' No. 6 hitter on Monday.

Manager Bruce Bochy has been shifting hot and cold hands up and down his lineup all year long, and Belt was dropped tonight as a result of his poor July. He won't stay in the sixth spot for long if he's over his slump.
Jul 26 - 1:51 AM

Tyler Saladino went 2-for-4 with a game-winning single in the bottom of the ninth as the White Sox edged the Cubs 5-4 on Monday.

Saladino is outhitting Brett Lawrie over the last month and is the superior defensive second baseman, so maybe it's time to give him a crack at the starting job. He wouldn't do much for fantasy leaguers if it happens, but as far as the White Sox are concerned, he just needs to be a better player than Lawrie. Right now, Saladino has a .722 OPS in 130 AB, while Lawrie is at .723 in 351 AB.
Jul 26 - 12:20 AM

Jake Arrieta surrendered four runs in six innings Monday in a no-decision against the White Sox.

It looked like it'd be a second straight fine outing for Arrieta, but then Todd Frazier connected on a three-run homer with two outs in the sixth, ruining his night. The Cubs went on to lose the game, the fourth straight time they've lost one of Arrieta's starts. In fact, they're just 3-7 in his outings since their streak of 23 straight wins with him on the mound ended in May.
