Raisel Iglesias allowed a grand slam, accounting for all four runs in his six innings of work during Monday's loss to the Cardinals.

The Cardinals loaded the bases on a double, a single, and a hit batter when Kolten Wong unloaded them with two outs in the fourth inning. Iglesias otherwise kept the Cardinals off the board, yielding six hits while striking out seven and issuing zero walks. He's winless in five starts since rejoining the rotation, carrying an overall 5.53 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and 42/13 K/BB ratio in 40 2/3 innings. Iglesias faces off against the Pirates at home next.

Kolten Wong hit a grand slam, the only offense the Cardinals needed to beat the Reds on Monday.

Wong, who finished 1-for-3, cleared the bases and the fence in right-center in the fourth inning when he took Raisel Iglesias yard. The second baseman now has 11 home runs, leaving him one shy of tying last year's total. Wong has also knocked in 42 runs, stolen 11 bases, and compiled a .275/.337/.433 triple-slash line for the Red Birds.

Brad Boxberger picked up his 25th save with a scoreless ninth inning in Monday's 5-2 victory over the Tigers.

Boxberger struck out J.D. Martinez and Nick Castellanos, issued a walk to Alex Avila, then got Jose Iglesias to ground out to end the game. The right-hander is now 25-for-27 in save chances on the year with a 3.10 ERA and a 51/20 K/BB ratio over 40 2/3 innings.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Dodgers "have let teams know that Yasiel Puig is available in the right deal."

However, he also adds that "teams are showing much more interest in their prospects." That's not altogether surprising, given that the Dodgers have one of the better farm systems in the game and have elite prospects like Corey Seager and Julio Urias. Puig is having a disappointing season with a .253/.327/.423 batting line and just six homers, but he's just 24 and is under team control cheaply through 2019. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman has reported previously that the Dodgers have told Puig he will not be traded.

Nate Karns got the win on Monday against the Tigers after limiting them to a lone run in six innings of work.

Karns tossed six shutout innings, but allowed a leadoff home run to Yoenis Cespedes in the seventh. Victor Martinez added a single before the right-hander was lifted. They were two of three hits he allowed on the night with no walks and three strikeouts. Karns has limited the opposition to two or fewer runs in seven of his last eight starts and now boasts a 3.37 ERA with a 1.21 WHIP and a 106/40 K/BB ratio over 115 innings. He'll face the Red Sox at Fenway Park next.

Anibal Sanchez gave up three runs in 5 1/3 innings to the Rays on Monday, resulting in his eighth loss of the season.

Curt Casali hit a solo home run in the third, Kevin Kiermaier ripped an RBI double in the fourth, and Logan Forsythe hit an RBI single in the fifth to account for the damage. Sanchez, overall, allowed eight hits and a pair of walks while striking out six. Though it was his eighth loss of the season, he hadn't lost a start since June 3, ending a stretch of eight starts in which he earned seven wins. Sanchez owns a disappointing 4.61 ERA with a 1.25 WHIP and a 121/43 K/BB ratio over 136 2/3 innings. He'll go up against the Orioles in a road start this weekend.
Jul 27 - 10:51 PM

Yoenis Cespedes went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a solo home run, accounting for all of the Tigers' offense in Monday's loss to the Rays.

Cespedes got the Tigers on the board with a solo home run off of Nate Karns in the seventh inning to make it 3-1, then added an RBI single in the eighth. The Tigers weren't doing much else offensively. Cespedes has put together a fine season, batting .287/.319/.492 with 16 home runs and 57 RBI. He could be wearing a new uniform by Saturday.

Curt Casali hit a pair of homers, helping the Rays take down the Tigers on Monday.

Casali put the Rays up 1-0 in the third inning with a solo home run off of Anibal Sanchez. He tacked on a two-run home run to push the Rays' lead to 5-2 in the bottom of the eighth off of Bruce Rondon, finishing 3-for-4 on the night. The catcher has taken only 51 plate appearances, but has already gone deep five times while knocking in eight runs and posting a .261/.314/.652 batting line.
