Drew Hutchison was only able to make it through three innings, allowing four runs in a no-decision in Thursday's win against the Astros.

Hutchison was inefficient over the three frames, needing 61 pitches to see his way through. He allowed six hits -- including a home run to Jon Singleton -- while walking none and striking out two. The right-hander has seen his ERA skyrocket into the mid-4.00's recently, as it currently sits at 4.62. He'll try to rebound at home against the Orioles in his next start.

Jake Buchanan allowed three runs -- including two on a pair of solo home runs -- in five innings but got a no-decision in Thursday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Buchanan was making his first start since June 21, having served several times out of the bullpen in the time since. He was starting in place of Jarred Cosart, who was traded to the Marlins prior to Thursday's 4 PM ET deadline. The right-hander yielded five hits, walked none, and struck out three. Brad Peacock, not Buchanan, will likely take Cosart's rotation spot long-term, however. In the off-chance the Astros have Buchanan make another start, he'll be on schedule to face the Phillies on the road on Wednesday.

Jose Bautista finished 1-for-3 with a sacrifice fly and a solo home run in Thursday's win against the Astros.

Bautista staked the Jays to an early 1-0 lead with a first-inning home run off of starter Jake Buchanan. He helped tie the game up at 5-5 in the eighth inning with the sacrifice fly. The slugger has now gone yard 21 times this season with 63 RBI and a fantastic .293/.414/.519 slash line.

Cliff Lee (elbow) will be examined by a doctor on Saturday.

Lee admitted feeling soreness in his left elbow while warming up Thursday and he made it just 2 2/3 innings before having to leave. The initial diagnosis is a left flexor pronator strain, which is the same ailment that kept him out for two months earlier this season. Lee admitted that surgery is a possibility and conceded that he's probably done for the season. We'll know for sure after Saturday's exam.

Nolan Reimold hit two solo home runs on Thursday, including a go-ahead shot in the ninth inning to help the Blue Jays edge out the Astros.

The two homers were his only successes in four at-bats, but they were big successes. His first occurred in the fifth off of starter Jake Buchanan, and his second came against reliever Chad Qualls to break a 5-5 tie in the ninth. Reimold recently returned from a calf injury and hasn't played much since joining the Jays earlier this season. In 19 plate appearances with the Jays, he has the pair of homers along with three doubles and five RBI.
Jul 31 - 11:05 PM

Eric Hosmer left Thursday's game versus the Twins after aggravating his right hand injury.

He's set to undergo X-rays. Hosmer was hit in the hand by a pitch over a week ago and still isn't right, so it seems likely that he has more than just a bruise. The results of the X-ray should be available later Thursday.
Jul 31 - 11:01 PM

Mike Zunino hit a go-ahead two-run home run, his only hit in four at-bats, as the Mariners enjoyed a 6-5 win over the Indians on Thursday.

Zunino took Indians reliever Bryan Shaw out to left field for his 17th homer of the season, and his third in his last four ballgames. The catcher continues to supply the power but not much else, slashing .212/.262/.438 with 40 RBI.
Jul 31 - 11:01 PM

Jason Kipnis went 2-for-5 with a double and a two-run home run, but the Indians lost by one run to the Mariners on Thursday.

The Indians hung a three-spot on the Mariners in the third, but Kipnis answered back with a two-run homer in the bottom half of the inning, part of the Indians' own three-spot. Kipnis has been slumping at the plate and recently acknowledged that his right oblique muscle is still bothering him. He's slashing .243/.322/.356 with six home runs, 36 RBI, and 15 stolen bases.
