Chris Davis hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning of Thursday afternoon's loss to the White Sox.

Davis home run came with two outs in the ninth inning off of Zach Duke and drew the Orioles to within 3-2. It would have tied the game, but the White Sox scored an insurance run in the top of the frame--badly needed insurance, it would turn out. Davis now has three homers in his last two games. He remains your prototypical all-or-nothing slugger, with a .217/.292/.478 batting line, 11 long balls and 28 RBI. Enjoy the recent power surge while it lasts.

Indians prospect OF Tyler Naquin had a perfect day at the plate Wednesday for Double-A Akron, going 4-for-4 with a home run and three RBI.

Naquin opened the season on the disabled list as a result of a hand injury he suffered last June, and he didn’t join Akron until late April. He’s quickly making up for the lost time, though, batting .318/.408/.430 through 25 games. The 24-year-old also has nine extra-base hits—his dinger on Wednesday was his first of 2015—and five stolen bases, and he sports a solid 19/14 strikeout-to-walk ratio on the season.

Red Sox recalled LHP Eduardo Rodriguez from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Rodriguez will be making his major league debut when he starts Thursday against the Rangers. It's just being called a spot start, designed to give Boston's other starters an extra day of rest, but Joe Kelly's rotation spot is obviously vulnerable right now. Rodriguez, 22, had a 2.98 ERA and 44/7 K/BB ratio over his first 48 1/3 innings this season in Triple-A.

Adam Jones went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts in Thursday's loss to the White Sox.

Jones did hit a single against Chris Sale, but otherwise, he was held quiet. He hasn't had many of these kinds of games this season. For the year, Jones is hitting .313/.353/.472 with six homers, 25 RBI and 21 runs scored. His bat is one of the most consistent in the majors.

Red Sox optioned RHP Heath Hembree to Triple-A Pawtucket.

The move clears a spot for Thursday's starter, Eduardo Rodriguez, on the active roster. Hembree has appeared in two games with the Red Sox this season.

Melky Cabrera went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Thursday afternoon's win over the Orioles.

Cabrera's RBI double off of Tyler Wilson in the sixth inning put the first run of the game up on the board, in a game that the White Sox would win 3-2. Even with the double, Cabrera continues to post one of the most disappointing batting lines for a former All Star that can be imagined. He's currently hitting just .244/.287/.278. There's just no power there, at all. To that point, Thursday's double was just Cabera's third of the season.

According to MLB.com's Bill Ladson, a CT scan taken Thursday on Jayson Werth's left wrist revealed two small fractures.

Werth suffered the fractures on May 15 when he got struck on the wrist by an Odrisamer Despaigne pitch. He was placed on the disabled list a couple days later and will now probably be sidelined until sometime in August. The veteran outfielder has a littered history of wrist injuries. Tyler Moore, Michael Taylor, and Clint Robinson have been on somewhat of a rotation in left field for the Nationals.

Adam LaRoche went 3-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI in Thursday afternoon's win over the Orioles.

In a low-scoring game, LaRoche hit an RBI double off Orioles starter Tyler Wilson in the sixth inning, scoring Melky Cabrera and giving the White Sox a 2-0 lead. The team would eventually win 3-2. The two doubles pushed LaRoche's season total of two-baggers to seven and the RBI was his 18th. LaRoche has struggled to this point with his new team, but he's hit 20 or more homers in each of his last four healthy seasons and it's not unreasonable to expect an improvement on his .239/.368/.373 slash as he grows familiar with AL pitchers.
