The Rockies are expected to go with a committee at closer while John Axford is on the family medical emergency list.

Nick Groke of the Denver Post lists LaTroy Hawkins, Scott Oberg and Tommy Kahnle as ninth-inning options for manager Walt Weiss. Hawkins is probably the favorite out of the gate, as he has closer experience and has pitched very well since returning from the disabled list, allowing just one run with a 7/1 K/BB ratio over 6 2/3 innings.

Koji Uehara worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning to earn his 18th save as the Red Sox eked out a 4-3 victory versus the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Uehara got Danny Valencia and Dioner Navarro to fly out to the outfield and Kevin Pillar to fly out in the infield for a stress-free ninth inning. The veteran right-hander has converted 18 saves in 20 opportunities with a 2.89 ERA and a 30/6 K/BB ratio in 28 innings.

David Ortiz hit a solo home run in a 1-for-4 effort as the Red Sox took down the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Ortiz made it a 4-0 game when he slugged a solo home run off of Marco Estrada in the third inning. He's gone yard in two of his last three games, giving him 13 on the year with 36 RBI and a .228/.313/.422 triple-slash line.

Danny Salazar held the Rays to two runs -- one earned -- on just two hits over 7 2/3 innings in a 6-2 win Tuesday.

Salazar yielded just one hit over seven scoreless innings before Asdrubal Cabrera hit an RBI double in the eighth. Another run scored on a throwing error before Salazar was removed. The start was a necessary turn after two subpar outings his last two times out. The right-hander will carry a 3.80 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 101/24 K/BB ratio into Sunday's interleague matchup against the Pirates.

Jose Reyes went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, but the Blue Jays were bested on Tuesday by the Red Sox.

Reyes' two-run blast came in the seventh inning off of Tommy Layne and brought the Jays right back into the game. The shortstop has had a quiet year at the plate, batting .267/.302/.386 with four home runs, 27 RBI, and 10 stolen bases.
Jun 30 - 10:24 PM

Marco Estrada yielded four runs (two earned) in 2 1/3 innings, suffering a loss against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Estrada flirted with a perfect game in his previous outing, so he really stunk by comparison. The right-hander was hurt by a Devon Travis error on leadoff hitter Mookie Betts' grounder, which helped lead to two runs scoring. But Estrada also walked four and allowed three hits while striking out only one batter. He'll try for better results next time when he takes on the Tigers in Detroit. He now has a 3.58 ERA with a 1.15 WHIP and a 64/27 K/BB ratio over 75 1/3 innings.
Jun 30 - 10:21 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez held the Blue Jays to one run in six innings to earn the win on Tuesday.

The lone run came around in the fourth inning on Chris Colabello's RBI single. It was one of only four hits Rodriguez allowed on the evening along with two walks and four strikeouts. It was a nice bounce-back effort as he was shelled in his previous outing. The rookie carries a 3.92 ERA with a 1.11 WHIP and a 36/13 K/BB ratio over 41 1/3 innings. He'll match up with the Astros in a home start next.
Jun 30 - 10:17 PM

Shawn Tolleson allowed a run but still grabbed his 11th save as the Rangers hung on for an 8-6 win against the Orioles on Tuesday.

Tolleson got two quick outs on ground outs, but walked J.J. Hardy. Hardy moved to second on defensive indifference, then Travis snider knocked him in with a single to right field. Tolleson bounced back and struck out Ryan Flaherty to end the game. The right-hander has yet to blow a save in 11 chances and now has a 2.67 ERA wtih a 34/7 K/BB ratio over 33 2/3 innings.
