Felix Doubront lasted only four innings, allowing three runs as the Blue Jays were defeated on Tuesday by the Phillies.

All three runs came in the fifth inning, as the Phillies used an infield single and three doubles to plate two runs and chase Doubront out of the game. The lefty gave up six hits and a pair of walks while striking out three. Doubront has made only four starts this season, but only one of them was passable. He has a 4.76 ERA, a 1.63 WHIP, and a 13/5 K/BB ratio over 22 2/3 innings. He will take on the Royals at home in his next outing.

Mookie Betts is being evaluated for a possible concussion after leaving Tuesday's game against the White Sox.

Betts made a catch on Jose Abreu's deep drive to right-center field but then fell over the bullpen wall and landed on his neck/head area. He seemed fine initially but was then removed. The play was eventually ruled a home run after replay.

Ken Giles, in his new role as the Phillies' closer, pitched a scoreless ninth inning in Tuesday's victory versus the Blue Jays.

Giles allowed a leadoff single to Edwin Encarnacion, but got Chris Colabello to fly out, Russell Martin to line out, and Danny Valencia to ground out in an otherwise easy ninth inning. Jonathan Papelbon was traded prior to the start of Tuesday's game. As a result, Giles will function as the Phillies' regular closer going forward and should be owned in all formats. He has the potential to be an elite closer, though he won't see many save opportunities for the Phillies, baseball's worst team by record. Having functioned as Papelbon's setup man for the bulk of the season, Giles owns a 1.81 ERA and a 54/20 K/BB ratio in 44 2/3 innings.

Curtis Granderson had a two-run home run and a single in a 2-for-4 effort as the Mets shut out the Padres 4-0 on Tuesday.

Granderson added insurance when he took reliever Shawn Kelly yard in the eighth inning, doubling the Mets' lead. Though his bat has cooled off a bit in July, the outfielder has turned in a solid year despite carrying a .682 OPS through the end of April. Granderson is batting .253/.346/.431 with 15 home runs and 33 RBI to date.
Jul 28 - 9:49 PM

Lucas Duda went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run, helping the Mets to a win on Tuesday against the Padres.

Duda staked the Mets to an early 2-0 lead when he drilled a James Shields offering over the fence in center field. Given how masterful Noah Syndergaard was on the mound, it was the only offense the Mets would need. Duda has three home runs in his last three games, giving him 15 on the season with 42 RBI and a .236/.338/.433 batting line.
Jul 28 - 9:45 PM

James Shields allowed three runs in seven innings, taking a loss on Tuesday versus the Mets.

Shields allowed a two-run home run to Lucas Duda in the first inning, then got his act together and kept the Mets scoreless the rest of the way. He took the mound to begin the eighth, but allowed a leadoff double to Juan Lagares before being lifted. Shawn Kelly then allowed a two-run home run to Curtis Granderson. Shields yielded seven hits overall, walked none, and struck out four. A candidate to be moved by the July 31 trade deadline, the right-hander has a 3.77 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP, and a 148/47 K/BB ratio over 133 2/3 innings. He'll match up with the Marlins in Miami next.

Noah Syndergaard fired eight shutout innings -- and was perfect through the first six -- in Tuesday's win against the Padres.

Syndergaard lost his bid for a perfect game and a no-hitter when Will Venable led off the seventh inning with a single. It was one of only three hits he allowed on the evening while walking none and striking out nine. The right-hander has, in eight of 14 starts to begin his major league career, limited the opposition to one or zero runs. Syndergaard has an outstanding 2.70 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP, and a 91/20 K/BB ratio over 86 2/3 innings. He'll toe the slab at home against the Nationals next.
Jul 28 - 9:37 PM

Jose Bautista left Tuesday's game versus the Phillies with an apparent right hamstring injury.

Bautista pulled up lame while running out a groundball. It looked like a potentially significant injury, but we'll have to wait and see what the Blue Jays say after the game.
