Eduardo Nunez was spotted hugging his Giants teammates after leaving Tuesday's game against the Pirates in the bottom of the fifth inning.

It looks like Nunez has been traded, though there are no reports yet about where he is headed. USA Today's Bob Nightengale tweeted Monday night that the Red Sox "continue to scout" the 30-year-old third baseman. Stay tuned.

Edwin Encarnacion blasted a walkoff grand slam on Tuesday, propelling the Indians to an 11-7 victory over the visiting Angels.

Encarnacion victimized Angels' closer Bud Norris in the 11th inning. The stage was set after Bradley Zimmer and Francisco Lindor drew walks, then Michael Brantley was walked intentionally to load the bases. Encarnacion also doubled in the ballgame and walked twice, finishing the night 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored. He's now hitting .262/.377/.491 with 21 homers and 59 RBI.

Bradley Zimmer had a monster night at the plate on Tuesday, going 3-for-5 with a homer and four RBI as the Indians topped the Angels.

Zimmer blasted a grand slam during a seven-run uprising in the second inning. He also singled twice, walked, scored three runs and swiped a pair of bases in the contest. For the season, the impressive rookie is hitting .277/.337/.436 with six homers, 33 RBI and 12 stolen bases.

Michael Brantley went deep as the Indians outlasted the Angels in extra innings on Tuesday.

Brantley capped off a seven-run rally in the second inning with a solo shot off of Jesse Chavez. He finished the night 1-for-5 plus a walk and scored a pair of runs. Brantley is enjoying a nice season at the dish, slashing .301/.367/.445 with seven homers and 46 RBI.

Mike Clevinger struggled in Tuesday's no-decision against the Angels, allowing six runs (five earned) on nine hits across 4 1/3 innings.

Clevinger punched out five on the evening and walked two. He surrendered a pair of long balls in the game, including a three-run blast to Kole Calhoun in the fourth inning. Even with the rough outing, the right-hander will carry a 3.20 ERA and 1.21 WHIP into Monday's start against the Red Sox in Boston.

Kole Calhoun blasted a three-run homer as the Angels fell to the Indians in extra innings on Tuesday.

His three-run shot off of Mike Clevinger got the Angels on the board in the third inning, cutting their deficit to 7-3. It would wind up being Calhoun's lone hit in five at-bats on the night. He's now hitting .234/.315/.376 with 13 homers and 44 RBI on the season.

Zack Cozart aggravated his left quad injury on Tuesday night against the Yankees.

Cozart was held out of the Reds' starting lineup as a precautionary measure for the lingering injury, but he entered as a pinch-hitter in the eighth and had to beat out a fielder's choice to first base. Cozart was then pulled after limping into third after Billy Hamilton's two-out double to right field. This comes with awful timing for the rebuilding Reds, who were aiming to deal the impending free agent shortstop ahead of the July 31 trade deadline.

Jesse Chavez was crushed in a no-decision against the Indians on Tuesday, surrendering seven runs on five hits in 2 1/3 innings.

Chavez also walked four on the night while striking out three. All seven runs against him came in the second inning, with the big blow coming on a grand slam from Bradley Zimmer. The right-hander will bring an uninspiring 5.35 ERA and 1.42 WHIP into Sunday's start against the Blue Jays in Toronto.
