Chris Carter went 3-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the A's.

Carter has now blown by the Mendoza Line, as he's up to a .213 average. The two RBI brought him up to 43 on the year. Carter hasn't ever been one to hit for average, but he does have nineteen home runs and a .478 slugging percentage, which tells you that he makes his hits count. Always a hot/cold slugger, Carter's on the scorching side this month, slashing .306/.352/.735 for July.
Jul 23 - 2:45 AM

Scott Kazmir went seven innings in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Astros, giving up seven hits, striking out six and walking one.

Kazmir had long since hit the showers when Houston pulled out the win in the 13th, but he put in another sterling effort while he was on the mound. Chris Carter served as Kazmir's nemesis, knocking in both of the runs on Kazmir's line (one was unearned) via a third inning two-run single. While he didn't pick up his fourteenth win on Tuesday, Kazmir is still holding batters to a fantastic .210 BAA to go with a 2.32 ERA. He's allowed only 94 hits in 122 innings pitched. He'll look for a win against the Rangers next time out.
Jul 23 - 2:40 AM

Brett Oberholtzer was strong on Tuesday, giving up two runs and six hits in seven innings of work.

Oberholtzer was pitching in the place of Colin McHugh. The numbers weren't spectacular or flashy, but he got the job done. He made the A's put the ball in play, as he didn't record a walk or strikeout. While Oberholtzer didn't factor into the decision (the game went thirteen innings), the effort dropped his ERA to 4.32. Should McHugh return this week, Oberholtzer will probably make his way back to the minors.
Jul 23 - 2:37 AM

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Tuesday's win over the Angels.

The blast was Schoop's eighth of the year and put him up to 26 RBI. Despite the homer, the second baseman is batting just .220/.256/.338 this season and doesn't merit serious fantasy consideration.
Jul 23 - 2:35 AM

J.J. Hardy went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two RBI in Tuesday's meeting with the Angels.

He now has 21 doubles on the season, to go with 30 RBI and a slash line of .284/.316/.380 His power outage through the first three months of the season has been well documented. If you're looking to buy low on an infielder, Hardy is a possible candidate, though at this point it's hard to trust him. July has been a rough month for the shortstop, as he's scuffled to the tune of .220/.281/.356.
Jul 23 - 2:30 AM

Mike Trout went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Orioles.

Trout's two-run blast accounted for the only runs the Angels were able to manage against Miguel Gonzalez. Prior to the homer, their only hits were a pair of Efren Navarro singles. The home run was Trout's 24th and put him up to 76 RBI. Even in tough losses like Tuesday's, Trout continues his march toward the AL MVP. He's slashing .309/.395/.610 to this point.
Jul 23 - 2:22 AM

Miguel Gonzalez allowed just three hits and two runs in seven and two-thirds innings against the Angels on Tuesday.

While Gonzalez did walk four, he was able to keep the Angels off the board until the eighth inning, when Mike Trout launched a two-run homer. Gonzalez has made a habit of going deep into games as of late. He'd gone eight innings in each of his last two starts. This effort dropped his ERA to 3.91. If he's able to continue this recent trend, he's somebody to keep an eye on in deep AL-only leagues. Next time out he'll face the Mariners.
Jul 23 - 2:14 AM

Hector Santiago did not factor into the decision in Tuesday's game against the Orioles, throwing five scoreless innings and allowing two hits and three walks.

While Santiago was able to keep the Orioles off the board, he had already thrown 99 pitches by the time the fifth inning was finished. The Angels have used him both out of the bullpen and in the rotation (thirteen starts in seventeen appearances). Despite the occasional struggle, he has a 4.02 ERA and has been a useful piece for the Halos. He'll take on the Tigers next time out.
