Andrelton Simmons left Saturday's game against the Phillies after jamming his right thumb on a play in left field.

Daniel Castro replaced him in the eighth inning. His X-rays came back negative but the soreness could keep Simmons out for a few days. He was hitless in three at-bats before exiting.

Paul Goldschmidt went 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Astros.

In a season filled with highlights and astronomical numbers, Saturday's loss to the Astros won't be making the cut when Goldschmidt decides what to show his grandchildren. He failed to pick up a hit or walk in the game and couldn't put the ball in play for two of his three at-bats. These things happen--just not very often for Goldy, who is hitting .346/.462/.599 with 22 homers, 77 RBI and 17 steals. The steal number is one off of his personal best for a season.

Dallas Keuchel improved to 13-5 after defeating the Diamondbacks on Saturday, tossing six innings of two-run ball in the 9-2 victory.

Keuchel struck out eight, but also walked three. The free passes led to two runs in the second inning, including one that scored when the All-Star offered ball four to Ender Inciarte with the bases loaded. The 27-year-old southpaw calmed down after all that silliness, though, shutting out the Diamondbacks the rest of the way. Keuchel's consistently great play has put him in the AL Cy Young conversation, as he holds a 2.35 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 140/37 K/BB ratio over 157 innings. He'll head to Oakland for a road outing against the A's in his next scheduled start.

Bryan Mitchell didn't fool many hitters in Saturday's loss to the White Sox.

Mitchell let up four runs and seven hits before getting the hook from manager Joe Girardi after only four innings of work. It looks like Mitchell is on his way out of the rotation as the Yankees are planning to call up top prospect Luis Severino for Wednesday's start against the Red Sox. Mitchell could be headed back to the minors.

Jeremy Hellickson was absolutely rocked in Saturday's loss to the Astros, surrendering seven runs (six earned) on seven hits over 3 1/3 innings.

Many, many things went wrong in this outing for Hellickson, but the proceedings didn't officially burst into flame until the fourth inning. Following a Nick Ahmed fielding error to put runners on first and third, Hellickson proceeded to plunk Colby Rasmus and walk Chris Carter to push across the first run of the inning. The other four runs didn't take much time to develop, as Hank Conger followed the Carter walk with a grand slam. Two more hits followed to drive the Snakes' starter from the contest. Hellickson had pitched very well over his last four starts, but when the dust settled from Saturday's disaster, he held a 4.95 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. He continues to hold value in deeper NL-only formats, but that value's limited at this point and could disappear altogether if he turns in another start of this variety.

Eugenio Suarez went 1-for-2 with an RBI double and three total RBI in Saturday's win over the Pirates.

Suarez drove in two of his three runs with productive outs, hitting sacrifice flies in the second and eighth innings. He also drove in a run with a double off Pirates starter Gerrit Cole in the fourth inning. Filling in for the injured Zack Cozart, Suarez has been one of the best stories to come along this season and his .302/.333/.456 triple-slash isn't anything to sneeze at.
Aug 1 - 10:59 PM

Melky Cabrera paced the White Sox with three hits Saturday in a win over the Yankees.

He went 2-for-3 with a single and a three-run homer. The veteran has hit safely in 13 of his last 15 games, raising his batting average 26 points over that span. Cabrera has appeared in all but one game for the White Sox this season with 114 hits.
Aug 1 - 10:55 PM

Jung Ho Kang went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Reds.

Kang took a Raisel Iglesias offering for a ride with two outs and nobody on in the fourth inning. The homer was his eighth of the season. He hit a blistering .379/.443/.621 in July, a triple-slash that was buoyed by 13 extra-base hits over the course of the month.
