Michael Brantley had a two-run single in Thursday's loss to the Astros.

Before the Astros ran away with it late, Brantley's two-RBI hit in the third inning gave the Indians an early lead. It was his only hit in four at-bats. The single extended his hitting streak to 13 games, running his batting average to .335, second to only the inhuman Mookie Betts among qualified hitters in the American League. The 31-year-old has managed to stay on the field thus far this year and is showing what he can do when healthy, hitting .335/.371/.555 with seven homers, 32 RBI and 23 runs scored on the year. Fantasy owners who took the leap of faith this spring are being rewarded handsomely.

Jake Marisnick went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in a win over the Indians on Thursday.

In a two-run game in the sixth inning, Marisnick dealt the biggest blow with a three-run blast to dead center that extended the Astros' lead. The homer was his fourth of the year. Marisnick is a strong defender in center field but doesn't bring much to the plate, batting just .157/.167/.326 in 35 games this year.

George Springer went 2-for-3 with a pair of walks, two steals and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Indians.

Springer did his job, setting the table atop the Astros' lineup as they banged out 12 hits and eight runs against Mike Clevinger and company. The steals were the most notable part of Springer's night, as the once-dangerous base-stealer -- he stole 77 bases between the 2012 and 2013 seasons as a minor leaguer in the Astros system -- tripled his season total with the pair of swipes. Stolen bases are no longer a big part of his game, but the rest of the 28-year-old's offensive abilities have been on point again this year, as Springer is now hitting .299/.364/.508 with 10 homers, 31 RBI and 38 runs scored overall.

Mike Clevinger allowed five runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Astros on Thursday.

Clevinger blanked the Astros through the first four innings before a three-run homer by Alex Bregman put him in the hole. The Astros pushed across two more runs in the sixth before Clevinger's book was closed, and they ended up scoring five in the inning to build an insurmountable lead. The Houston club has been Clevinger's biggest bugaboo this year, handing him both of his losses (in his last two starts, no less). On the year he's been much better, posting a 3.32 ERA and 1.22 WHIP through 10 starts. A date with the White Sox on Tuesday should cure what ails the 27-year-old.

Charlie Morton limited the Indians to two runs over six innings Thursday for his seventh win of the year.

Morton allowed five hits and walked three but managed to avoid most of the potential damage. The right-hander also struck out five in the quality start. The win improved him to a perfect 7-0 thorugh 10 starts, and Morton owns a shiny 2.04 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 75/21 K/BB ratio across 61 2/3 innings. A tough test awaits Morton Tuesday when the Astros visit the Yankees in New York, but at this point it's hard to bet against the 34-year-old regardless of opponent or situation.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Royals are "quietly" letting teams know they plan to be sellers at the trade deadline.

The 16-33 Royals have no chance of competing this year and are looking to rebuild by trading some of their bigger names for prospects. Heyman named Kelvin Herrera and Mike Moustakas, who are both headed for free agency after this year, as players the Royals would consider trading. He also said they'd be open to shopping Lucas Duda, Jon Jay and Whit Merrifield. Herrera has been excellent in the closer's role this year and is almost certain to be traded at or before the July 31 deadline. The Astros, who have been searching for late-inning depth and a possible upgrade on Ken Giles, would be a logical fit.

Mets manager Mickey Callaway said he has no plans to remove from Jeurys Familia the closer role.

Familia coughed up the lead in Wednesday's loss to the Marlins and now leads the majors with four blown saves. Even as the blown saves pile up, Callaway still has faith in his closer. "If you look at the numbers, he's been our best reliever," said Callaway. "He's the best version of himself he's ever been." Despite Wednesday's meltdown, Familia still carries an impressive 2.35 ERA to go with an equally superb 10.96 K/9. He'll be fine.

Todd Frazier (hamstring) took batting practice on Thursday.

He also fielded grounders at third base. Frazier and Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) are both traveling with the team, though it's unclear if either is close to returning. The 32-year-old went on the DL with a strained hamstring earlier this month.
