Melky Cabrera went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in Sunday's loss to the Orioles.

The double was his 11th of the season, the RBI his 30th. Cabrera has played well of late with a triple, two doubles and two homers in his last seven games, but he's still slashing just .259/.299/.330 for the year. He's hit just three home runs in 309 at-bats.
Jul 5 - 5:45 PM

Red Sox 2B prospect Yoan Moncada contributed two hits Saturday for Low-A Greenville.

That gives Moncada four two-hit games in his last nine contests. Over that span, he's hit .314 with two RBI. The 20-year-old has only managed a .234 average in his first 34 minor league games, but he already has 10 steals without getting caught. He joined the Red Sox in March and received a $31.5 million signing bonus.
Jul 5 - 5:41 PM

Miguel Gonzalez pitched well in Sunday's win over the White Sox, yielding one run on four hits over six innings.

Gonzalez struck out three and walked one in the contest. Melky Cabrera struck him for an RBI double in the sixth inning, but it was otherwise an uneventful start for the 31-year-old right-hander. The start could be viewed as a microcosm of his season. Solid, if unspectacular, as he now holds a 7-5 record, 3.87 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 67/28 K/BB ratio over 88 1/3 innings. The Orioles will certain take this kind of reliability, as should those who happen to own him in deeper AL-only formats. He'll take to the road against the Nationals in his last start before the All-Star Break.
Jul 5 - 5:39 PM

Jayson Werth (wrist) was able to take swings with a fungo bat for the first time on Saturday.

Nationals manager Matt Williams called it "significant progress" for the injured outfielder who is recovering from a fractured wrist. He isn't expected to be ready to rejoin the Nationals lineup until early August, but is at least making strides in the right direction.
Jul 5 - 5:39 PM

Carlos Rodon pitched inconsistently in Sunday's loss to the Orioles, walking four while surrendering two runs on four hits over five innings.

Rodon fanned seven and allowed just the four hits, but a lack of general control stopped him from lasting longer in the contest. Runs scored against him in the first and second innings on an RBI double by Adam Jones and a solo home run by Jonathan Schoop, respectively. To his credit, Rodon didn't let the game unravel, though he clearly did not have his sharpest stuff. He'll carry a 3.88 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 62/35 K/BB ratio (60 1/3 innings) on a short road trip over to Wrigley Field to face the Cubs in his next scheduled start.
Jul 5 - 5:32 PM

Adrian Gonzalez was removed from Sunday's contest against the Mets after being hit by a pitch on his hand.

Gonzalez remained in the game until his next at-bat, where Alex Guerrero pinch-hit for him. He's likely headed for precautionary X-rays to rule out any structural damage and the Dodgers should have an update on his status shortly.
Jul 5 - 5:31 PM

Chris Coghlan went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

Coghlan scored on a wild pitch by Marlins starter Mat Latos in the first inning, then pushed the advantage to 2-0 with an RBI single in the eighth. The Cubs would win by that final score. While his numbers aren't eye-popping, he's shown frisky power and is a useful real-life baseball piece, if not a legitimate fantasy one. Coghlan's hitting .254/.355/.428 with eight homers, 19 RBI and 31 runs scored this season.
Jul 5 - 5:30 PM

Reds RHP prospect Tyler Mahle fanned three hitters in six shutout frames Saturday in a win for Low-A Dayton.

Mahle is 2-0 with a 0.82 ERA in his last two starts. He leads the Midwest League in strikeouts with 87. The right-hander is also second in wins (eight) and innings pitched (91). Opponents have hit just .238 against Mahle with runners in scoring position. The 20-year-old has a good chance to move up to High-A Daytona before the season ends.
