Chris Tillman will start Sunday against the Angels.

Aug 19 - 11:59 PM

Carlos Santana went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Royals.

Santana has a modest seven-game hitting streak going during which time he's 12-for-26 with eight runs scored. He recently topped the 70-run plateau for the sixth time in seven full seasons in the bigs, and he's got a decent shot at making this his fourth year in a row with at least 80 RBI. The 31-year-old is hitting .251/.356/.450 in 117 games on the year.
Aug 19 - 11:57 PM

Jose Ramirez had an RBI double and scored a run in a win over the Royals on Saturday.

Ramirez got the scoring started with a run-scoring double in the first inning. It marked a return to the lineup for the 24-year-old, who underwent X-rays on his right wrist and forearm Thursday after taking a fastball to the arm. He's obviously fine, it appears, and ready to continue wreaking havoc on American League pitching. Ramirez is hitting .307/.363/.533 with 18 homers, 59 RBI, 80 runs scored and 12 steals on the year.
Aug 19 - 11:53 PM

Travis Wood allowed just one run (none earned) on three hits over seven innings in Saturday's win over the Nationals.

Wood was not missing many bats in this one, striking out two and walking two, but he was able to mostly keep the Nationals at bay nonetheless. His has been a disappointing campaign on the whole -- he entered action on Saturday the owner of a 6.46 ERA between the Royals and Padres -- but he has pitched well in his last two outings, having surrendered just three runs on nine hits in his last 12 innings. He will try to make it three consecutive respectable showings when he takes to the road for a showdown with the Marlins in his next scheduled start.
Aug 19 - 11:52 PM

Manny Machado stayed hot at the plate, going 2-for-4 in Saturday's loss to the Angels.

He singled twice and didn't factor into the scoring but it is nice to see him consistently finding success at the plate for a multi-game stretch. He struggled through a long slump for a good portion of the season but the tide has turned in recent days (he hit three home runs on Friday). He has his stat line up to .266/.320/.494 with 26 home runs, 81 RBI and 63 runs scored in 522 plate appearances and is a good bet to be one of the better hitters in baseball for the rest of the season.
Aug 19 - 11:52 PM

Stephen Strasburg allowed two runs on four hits over six innings in Saturday's loss to the Padres.

Strasburg had missed about three weeks of action due to an elbow impingement before being activated from the disabled list for Saturday's outing. He punched out eight and walked one on the evening. Yangervis Solarte smacked a two-run home run off him in the first inning, but he settled in for five more scoreless frames after the early hiccup. In 21 starts this season, Strasburg owns a 3.24 ERA and 1.10 WHIP. He will do battle with the Mets in a home outing next time out as he looks to work back into the groove of the campaign.
Aug 19 - 11:51 PM

Jason Vargas allowed four runs on six hits over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Indians on Saturday.

Vargas did manage to strike out seven for the second start in a row, but the Indians pecked away with a run in the first, two more in the fourth and one in the fifth. The loss is the third in his last four starts, dropping him to 14-7 with a 3.59 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in 24 starts overall. He'll have a shot at some retribution Friday when the Royals travel to Cleveland to take on the Tribe once again.
Aug 19 - 11:49 PM

Jesus Aguilar hit a go-ahead two-run home run in the ninth inning of Saturday's win over the Rockies.

With the game knotted at 3-3, Aguilar unloaded for a no-doubt two-run home run off Greg Holland to put the Brewers on top 5-3. Beyond that big dinger, he has done a fine job overall this season -- albeit with some struggles this month -- and is working to a .266/.333/.498 triple-slash with 12 homers and 41 RBI in 107 games.
