Colin Moran was carted off the field Saturday against the Orioles after fouling a ball off his left eye.

It was a scary moment for Moran, who went down immediately. His eye was noticeably bruised and bloodied after Darren O'Day's pitch struck the handle of his bat and headed straight for his face. Moran, who slugged his first big league homer on Friday, went 1-for-2 with a single before exiting in the sixth inning. If it's any consolation, Marwin Gonzalez finished Moran's at-bat by launching a three-run homer onto Eutaw Street.

Evan Longoria went 2-for-4 with two RBI in a loss to the Rangers on Saturday.

Longoria plated two with an RBI single in the third inning. The multi-hit game was the latest in what's been a scorching start to the second half for the 31-year-old, who's 12-for-32 with six RBI and five runs in eight games since the break. Longoria is now hitting .269/.321/.447 with 14 homers and 59 RBI on the year.

Alex Claudio worked a four-out save against the Rays Saturday, his fourth save of the year.

With runners on first and second and two outs in the eighth inning, Claudio was called on to protect a one-run lead. He did so, and then held onto it with a scoreless ninth. Claudio now has three saves since the All-Star break and hasn't been scored upon in five second-half appearances. He owns a 2.42 ERA and 1.02 WHIP in 52 innings overall and has a decently solid grip on the Rangers' closing gig for now, despite not having the weapons of a traditional closer.

Chris Archer struck out 11 Rangers over seven innings but allowed four runs -- only one earned -- in taking the loss Saturday.

Archer yielded a solo homer to Elvis Andrus in the fourth inning, but it was an egregious drop of a catchable fly ball by center fielder Mallex Smith in the sixth inning that allowed two runs to score. Things got worse for Archer when a wild pitch then brought in the go-ahead run, saddling the 28-year-old with his sixth loss. Archer owns a 3.77 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 167/44 K/BB ratio over 136 innings this year, and he'll look for a better result Thursday against the Yankees.

Andrew Cashner allowed three runs over six innings to earn a win against the Rays on Saturday.

The Rays hung a 3-spot on Cashner in the third inning that looked for a time like it would stand up, but the Rangers were gifted the lead in the seventh inning to get Cashner a backdoor win. The right-hander allowed four hits and three walks on the evening. The win improved him to 5-8 with a 3.64 ERA in 16 starts overall, albeit with a 1.39 WHIP to go with it. Cashner will try to make it two in a row when he faces the Orioles on Friday.

Lance Lynn spoke at length with Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak before Saturday's game against the Cubs.

Lynn, who is a free agent after this year, has been one of the most sought-after pitchers leading up to the trade deadline with the Astros, Rockies and Royals among his top suitors. "He knows where we stand, and if nothing else has the peace of mind with that knowledge," said Mozeliak after sitting down with Lynn. The right-hander has had an outstanding season, compiling a superb 3.30 ERA over 20 starts for the Cardinals, who are still the only team he's ever played for.

According to ESPN's Scott Lauber, the Red Sox have not considered trading for Jose Bautista.

The Red Sox are trying to think outside the box at third base after missing on Todd Frazier, but Bautista is not on their radar. Despite his success at Fenway Park, Bautista hasn't spent much time at the hot corner recently (he's only started one game at third this year) and probably wouldn't be able to play there on an everyday basis. It's also rare for teams to trade within their division. Rafael Devers figures to be Boston's long-term solution at third base, but he's only 20 and still needs time to develop in the minor leagues.

Marlins manager Don Mattingly suggested that Kyle Barraclough could take over the closer role if A.J. Ramos is traded.

The Marlins already shipped David Phelps out of town and Ramos could be the next domino to fall. The ninth inning would likely fall to either Barraclough or Brad Ziegler if Ramos is dealt, though it seems like Mattingly would lean toward Barraclough in that scenario. "Claw would be easy to put there for me," said Mattingly. "Out of our guys who’ve had success, I think Claw’s that guy." Barraclough has all the right tools to be a closer with a high 90s fastball and a wipeout slider. In deeper leagues, he could be worth a speculative add.
