Felix Hernandez wasn't involved in the decision after allowing one run over seven innings and striking out 10 Friday against the Orioles.

This makes 13 starts in a row of seven or more innings and no more than two runs allowed. The Mariners have won 10 of those outings, with seven of the wins getting credited to Hernandez. Tonight, though, they lost 2-1 in 10 innings.

Steve Pearce fanned all four times up Friday versus the Mariners.

Pearce is in his first minislump in a while, going 1-for-16 with eight strikeouts in his last four games. He was so good for the Orioles for two months that he figures to get a little rope. However, if he doesn't pick it up these next few days, the team might go hunting for another left field/DH option before the deadline.

Brad Miller, who is playing for his job, walked three times and struck out once as the Mariners' No. 9 hitter on Saturday.

Miller will certainly be sitting against lefties with Chris Taylor up. How the two split time against right-handers could be a day-to-day decision from Lloyd McClendon. Miller has faded again of late after his strong June, but it's not like his early season swoon when he was striking out every third at-bat; he has an 11/7 K/BB ratio in 53 at-bats this month. He's still the Mariners' best option as a shortstop against righties.

After replacing an injured Josh Hamilton, Efren Navarro went 2-for-3 with a go-ahead single Friday in the Angels' 2-1 win over the Tigers.

Both Angels runs came in the sixth, as Kole Calhoun doubled in Chris Iannetta and Navarro singled in Calhoun. Navarro is hitting .333 with a 3/4 K/BB ratio in 27 at-bats since being called up on July 12. It makes sense for the Angels to use him against all right-handers right now, but they haven't made any sort of commitment to him yet.
Jul 26 - 1:35 AM

Drew Smyly fanned a career-high 11 against the Angels on Friday, but he still took a loss after giving up two runs in 5 2/3 innings.

Smyly struck out 10 on July 6, 2012, but he hadn't fanned more than seven in a start since (partly because he hasn't had much of a chance to work deep into games). He's been sharp in both of his starts since the All-Star break, and while the loss tonight dropped him to 6-9, he still has a solid 3.77 ERA.
Jul 26 - 1:33 AM

C.J. Cron went 0-for-3 and struck out twice Friday against the Tigers.

It's kind of odd that while the Angels chose Efren Navarro over Cron a week ago, Cron has started both games over Navarro since the Grant Green injury got him back to the majors. Cron was a certainty to start tonight against the left-handed Drew Smyly, but he also played over Navarro against a righty on Thursday. He's 1-for-7 with five strikeouts since his callup and 10-for-51 (.196) with one homer and an 18/2 K/BB ratio in 51 major league at-bats this month. He should be sitting in favor of Navarro against righties.
Jul 26 - 1:22 AM

Josh Rutledge went 2-for-4 with four RBI and a run scored in an 8-1 win over the Pirates on Friday.

Rutledge got the Rockies on the board with an RBI double in the third inning and later had a bases-clearing double in a seven-run seventh. The 25-year-old has hit .308 with three home runs and 16 RBI over 53 games this season and should get regular playing time over the next two weeks with Troy Tulowitzki on the disabled list. He should be a useful fantasy shortstop in the meantime.
Jul 26 - 1:01 AM

Charlie Morton allowed four runs over six-plus innings Friday in a loss to the Rockies.

Morton held the Rockies to just one run before he unraveled to begin the seventh inning. He struck out three and walked one in the loss and now sits at 5-10 with a 3.40 ERA and 106/44 K/BB ratio over 132 1/3 innings of work this season. He'll attempt to turn the page next week in another road start, this time against the Giants.
