Rubby De La Rosa notched a quality start on Tuesday, allowing three runs over six innings, but took a loss against the Blue Jays.

It could have been a lot worse for De La Rosa, as the lefty allowed nine hits and walked two while only striking out one batter. The 25-year-old has a 3.64 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP, and a 37/16 K/BB ratio. De La Rosa will begin an eight-game road trip when he takes on the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Marcus Stroman improved to 7-2, allowing one run over seven innings as the Blue Jays hung on to victory against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old Stroman has quickly shown that he belongs in the big leagues. He held the Red Sox to six hits and two walks while striking out eight. Since moving into the rotation at the end of May, the right-hander has a 2.12 ERA in 11 starts spanning 68 innings. The talented rookie will look to keep it going on Monday, when he takes on the Astros in a road start.

Jason Vargas (appendectomy) could rejoin the Royals' rotation on Saturday in Oakland.

Vargas threw a four-inning simulated game on Tuesday with no issues. "He threw four innings, 15 pitches each inning. He had much more life on his pitches, much better command on his pitches, so he looked really good," manager Ned Yost said. Yost said "we'll see" when asked about Vargas starting Saturday, but it sounds like the club is leaning that way. We'll know for sure in a day or two.

Brandon Guyer went 2-for-3 with an RBI single in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

Guyer had a run-scoring infield single in the Rays' four-run eighth inning, and he also doubled in the game. The two-hit night was his first multi-hit game in 10 days, as he'd seen his average drop to .265. With the two-hit game, Guyer's line is back up to .272/.333/.361.

Dillon Gee fell to 4-4, allowing five runs in 6 2/3 innings as the Mets were shut out 6-0 in Tuesday's loss.

Gee had a decent start working for him, allowing only two runs on two solo home runs through six innings. In the seventh, he mixed base runners and outs, allowing Domonic Brown to reach on a single, hitting Ben Revere with a pitch, and walking Jimmy Rollins. Manager Terry Collins opted to bring in lefty reliever Josh Edgin to face the left-handed Chase Utley, but Utley deposited a grand slam into the upper deck in right field. Overall, Gee allowed five hits, walked three, and struck out two. He'll take a 3.77 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 53/21 K/BB ratio into Monday's start at home against the Giants.
Jul 29 - 10:14 PM

Matt Garza held the Rays to one run on five hits over seven innings but settled for a no-decision Tuesday.

Garza has now allowed two runs over his last 15 innings after allowing five while recording just one out against the Nationals on July 19. Unfortunately Alex Cobb matched him frame for frame, depriving Garza of his eighth win. The right-hander walked two while striking out two in the outing. Garza will carry a 3.74 ERA into his next start, Tuesday against the Giants.
Jul 29 - 10:11 PM

Ben Zobrist went 2-for-4 with a home run and an RBI double in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

Zobrist got the Rays on the board with his solo shot in the sixth inning, and he gave them the lead in the eighth with his RBI double. The homer was his ninth of the season, and Zobrist has scored nine runs in his last 10 games. After a slow start to the year, the 33-year-old has his line up to a respectable .271/.361/.421.
Jul 29 - 10:11 PM

Jimmy Rollins hit a solo home run and walked in five plate appearances in Tuesday's win against the Mets.

Rollins broke a scoreless tie in the third inning, hitting a fly ball just over the fence in right field off of Mets starter Dillon Gee. It's the sixth homer of the month, and the 14th overall, for the shortstop. His numbers continue to hover around the league average for shortstops, as he owns a .239/.321/.398 slash line with 47 RBI and 19 stolen bases.
