A source tells Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press that it appears Josh Willingham is "staying put" with the Twins through the trade deadline.

Berardino also notes that a deal during the August waiver trading period is still a possibility. The outfielder is hitting .225/.367/.439 this year. A report from ESPN's Jerry Crasnick earlier Wednesday said the club is hopeful to move Willingham this season.

Max Scherzer improved to 13-3, holding the White Sox to one run over seven innings as the Tigers enjoyed an easy 7-2 win on Wednesday.

Scherzer appears to have found some consistency. Now in his last seven starts, the impending free agent has a 2.08 ERA over 47 2/3 innings. On Wednesday, he limited the White Sox to five hits and a walk while striking out six. As a result, he lowered his overall ERA to 3.27. He has a 1.17 WHIP and a 167/41 K/BB ratio to go along with it. Scherzer will toe the rubber at Yankee Stadium on Monday.

Hector Noesi fell to 5-8 after yielding six runs over six innings in a loss to the Tigers on Wednesday.

All six runs came in an ugly first inning in which Noesi allowed six hits (five singles and a three-run home run) and walked two batters. From the second through the sixth, Noesi put up goose eggs. Overall, the right-hander allowed 10 hits, walked three, and struck out three. It hasn't been a great season for Noesi, as he has a 5.21 ERA, a 1.48 WHIP, and a 78/41 K/BB ratio. He'll try to bounce back against the Rangers at home on Monday.

Adam Dunn homered in garbage time in Wednesday's loss to the Tigers, his only hit in four at-bats.

The White Sox went into the ninth inning trailing by six runs, and Dunn made it five with a one-out solo home run off of Al Alburquerque. Dunn has homered in back-to-back ballgames, giving him 17 on the season along with 44 RBI and a .230/.362/.450 slash line.
Jul 30 - 10:31 PM

Torii Hunter singled three times in four at-bats, scoring twice and driving in a run, in an easy win against the White Sox on Wednesday.

Hunter is sad to see the month of July come to a close. Going into Thursday afternoon's game, he is hitting .353 (30-for-85) in July. The 39-year-old outfielder has brought his numbers back towards respectability, now slashing .277/.304/.463 with 14 home runs and 61 RBI.
Jul 30 - 10:29 PM

Giants optioned OF Tyler Colvin to Triple-A Fresno.

It was reported that Colvin was given his release by the club, but it turns out the team just sent him down instead. Colvin is hitting .223/.268/.381 this season and could be recalled by the club in September.
Jul 30 - 10:27 PM

Nick Castellanos had a good night at the plate, hitting a three-run home run and knocking in another run with a single over four at-bats as the Tigers handily defeated the White Sox on Wednesday.

Castellanos hasn't made noise with the bat in a while, as he last homered on June 27. His three-run blast capped off a six-run first inning against White Sox starter Hector Noesi. The 22-year-old rookie third baseman has had a mediocre year offensively, but there's certainly plenty of potential in his bat. He's slashing .267/.312/.409 with seven home runs and 41 RBI.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports is hearing the Yankees have talked to the Phillies about Marlon Byrd, but nothing is close at present.

Byrd has been a popular name as the trade deadline approaches, and the Yankees are among the teams that have been linked to the 36-year-old in recent days. Heyman hears the club isn't wild about Byrd's $8 million contract in 2015, though, a possible sticking point for a deal. Byrd is hitting .270/.318/.477 with 20 home runs this season and would no doubt provide a boost to the Bronx Bombers' offense.
