Brandon Phillips left Thursday's game against the Dodgers with right hamstring tightness.

Johan Camargo replaced Phillips at second base with Dansby Swanson taking Camargo's place at shortstop. Phillips went 1-for-3 with a triple before exiting in the sixth inning. The 36-year-old seems to get hurt all the time but his injuries are always minor. Consider him day-to-day.

Eric Hosmer went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored as the Royals bombarded the Tigers 16-4 on Thursday.

Hosmer got all of a solo homer in the third inning, taking Tigers starter Michael Fulmer out for a 444-foot blast. It was perhaps a metaphor for the game itself, as the Royals pounded Fulmer and company at every turn. Hosmer has five multi-hit games in his last nine contests to raise his season line to .315/.372/.493 with 14 homers, 46 RBI and 55 runs scored overall.

Brandon Moss went 2-for-5 with four RBI and a run scored in a win over the Tigers on Thursday.

Moss smacked a two-run double in the third inning and capped the scoring with a two-RBI single in the eighth, contributing four of the Royals' 16 runs on the night. It's been a big few days for the beleaguered 33-year-old, who has a pair of doubles, a homer and six RBI in the last two games. It's been a rare highlight of what's been a difficult year for Moss, who's hitting just .205/.273/.410 in 63 games overall.

According to LaVelle E. Neal of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Twins "continue to monitor the market" for Sonny Gray.

Add another team to Gray's growing list of suitors. The Twins are finalizing a trade for Braves lefty Jaime Garcia but apparently that won't stop them from pursuing Gray. Minnesota is clearly all-in but with so many other teams in the running, acquiring Gray is probably a long shot.

Mike Moustakas went 3-for-4 with three RBI and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Tigers.

The Royals put together four, four-run frames in the game, and Moustakas was in the middle of three of them. He chipped in RBI singles in the first and eighth innings, and hit a sacrifice fly in the sixth. The third baseman has put together a strong season in his walk year, batting .275/.305/.544 with 25 homers, 59 RBI and 46 runs scored to date.

Whit Merrifield went 2-for-6 with a home run and two runs scored in Thursday's lopsided win over the Tigers.

Merrifield socked a solo homer in the sixth inning, his eighth home run of the year. The 28-year-old has been on a tear during a seven-game hitting streak, going 11-for-30 with six extra-base hits during that time. On the year, Merrifield is hitting a healthy .290/.330/.468 with those eight homers, 35 RBI, 37 runs scored and 15 steals.

Michael Fulmer allowed eight runs -- five earned -- over 2 2/3 innings in a loss to the Royals on Thursday.

If one believed in signs, a throwing error allowing the first batter of the game to reach may have been an indication of things to come for Fulmer and the Tigers. The Royals would go on to score four runs in the frame, and they hung four more -- this time all of them earned -- on the 24-year-old in the third inning before he was removed. Some days you're the windshield, some days you're the bug. The good news for Fulmer is that he's had a lot more days when he's been the windshield this year, rendering Thursday's outing as an outlier. Even with the loss, Fulmer is 10-7 with a 3.35 ERA and 1.11 WHIP through 19 starts. He'll have a chance to exorcise some demons when the Tigers host the Royals next Tuesday.

Danny Duffy allowed four runs on nine hits over five-plus innings in a win over the Tigers on Thursday.

Duffy looked to be on his way to a nice evening after being staked to an eight-run lead, and while he cruised through the first four innings the southpaw ran into turbulence in the fifth. None of the damage was major -- all nine of the Tigers' hits were singles or doubles -- but they pecked away, forcing him from the game with no outs in the sixth. The 28-year-old struck out four without walking a batter in the outing. The win improved him to 6-6 with a 3.71 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 15 starts overall. A rematch with these same Tigers is on tap for Tuesday in Detroit.
