Mariners optioned 1B Justin Smoak to Triple-A Tacoma.

The move clears a spot for Tuesday's starter Erasmo Ramirez. Smoak went 4-for-20 (.200) with one double and one RBI during his most recent stint with the big club.

Cody Ross (calf) had a pinch-hit single Monday against the Tigers.

Ross left Saturday's game due to tightness in his left calf, but apparently he's feeling improvement. He should be able to return to the lineup soon.
Jul 22 - 4:24 AM

Danny Farquhar (elbow) allowed an unearned run in one inning of work in his return to action Monday against the Mets.

Farquhar was unavailable Sunday due to tenderness in his pitching elbow, but it's not a major concern. The 27-year-old has an excellent 2.68 ERA and 50/14 K/BB ratio over 43 2/3 innings this season.
Jul 22 - 4:24 AM

Charlie Blackmon returned to action on Monday July 21.

Jul 22 - 4:24 AM

Erick Aybar (groin) grounded out in a pinch-hit appearance Monday against the Orioles.

Aybar has missed three straight starts with a sore right groin, but it's a good sign that he was able to pinch-hit. Look for him to return to the starting lineup soon.
Jul 22 - 4:24 AM

Adam Jones went 2-for-4 with a pair of two-run homers in Monday's 4-2 win against the Angels.

Jones' first inning shot off Matt Shoemaker plated Nick Markakis and put the Orioles on top 2-0. Five frames later, deja vu, only this time Jones was even more emphatic, pulverizing the ball 443 feet over the left center wall to give Baltimore a 4-2 lead it wouldn't relinquish. Jones has two homers and nine RBI over his last three games. His slash line is up to a healthy .300/.325/.500, and the outfielder is on pace for 31 homers and 104 RBI.

Zach Britton worked a scoreless ninth inning on Monday to earn save No. 17 as the Orioles emerged victorious against the Angels.

Britton has worked a pair of perfect appearances since blowing the save and taking the loss by allowing three runs without retiring a batter Friday against the A's. Since June 21, those three runs are the only runs he's yielded. He's given up runs in only three of 34 appearances since the start of May. Britton boasts a stellar 1.81 ERA and 0.95 WHIP.
Jul 22 - 1:22 AM

In his return to the rotation, Bud Norris allowed two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Monday against the Angels.

Demoted prior to the All-Star break to keep him on a regular pitching schedule, Norris walked two and allowed eight hits, but he also struck out eight. The right-hander struggled in his one-start sojourn in Double-A, so it was nice to see a quick return to form at the game's highest level. Norris (8-6, 3.78 ERA) stays out West next time around, taking on the Mariners this weekend in Seattle.
