Elijah Dukes was arrested in the Tampa area on Thursday morning after he tried to eat a plastic bag of marijuana and had a marijuana blunt tucked behind his ear.

More trouble for the former top prospect. Dukes, who has been arrested five times over the past year, was pulled over after committing a traffic violation. He faces charges of tampering with physical evidence, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving with a cancelled, suspended or revoked license. His bail was set at $4,750. The 27-year-old hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2009 and is unlikely to get another chance.

Max Scherzer held the Giants to one run in seven innings as the Nationals won 4-1 on Friday.

He fanned six while walking two and giving up five base hits. He jumped over Jose Fernandez to retake the major league lead with 187 strikeouts in 148 2/3 innings. Scherzer is now 11-6 with a 2.85 ERA. Next on the docket is a Tuesday start in Arizona.

Rick Porcello gave up only two runs in a dominant complete game five-hitter to lead the Red Sox to a 6-2 victory over the Angels on Friday.

He fanned three batters without issuing any walks to raise his record to an impressive 14-2. The win puts him in a four-way tie for the major league lead. Only three starting pitchers have a better walk rate than Porcello this year. He will take his 3.47 ERA into a matchup with the Mariners on Wednesday.

Junior Guerra almost went the distance Friday against the Pirates, allowing just one run over 8 2/3 innings as part of a 3-1 victory.

Guerra entered the ninth with a chance at his first career shutout (and complete game), but he allowed the first two batters to reach base before a run eventually scored on a fielder’s choice. He then gave up a single to Starling Marte before getting the hook. While Guerra ran out of gas at the end, it was still an excellent outing. He gave up just four hits and one walk while striking out five batters. The 31-year-old journeyman now owns a surprising 2.70 ERA and 85/34 K/BB ratio in 103 1/3 innings through 16 starts this season. He could be an interesting trade chip for Milwaukee.

Rougned Odor finished 3-for-4 with a pair of solo homers in a win over the Royals on Friday.

It was the second multi-homer game of his career. The first one was a legitimate blast, but the second just barely eked over the right field fence. But it all counts the same in the box score. He’s now up to 21 homers on the year to go along with 54 RBI, 10 steals, and a .282/.301/.508 batting line.

Ricky Nolasco delivered an outstanding performance in a no-decision against the White Sox on Friday, allowing one run on three hits over eight innings.

Nolasco surrendered a leadoff home run to Adam Eaton to start the ballgame, then limited the White Sox to just two hits and a walk over the rest of his outing. The right-hander struck out six on the evening. While he still isn't trustworthy in mixed leagues, he had delivered two strong outings in a row and could be worth a look in a decent matchup against the Indians in Cleveland on Wednesday.

Ichiro Suzuki went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday’s loss to the Cardinals.

The chase continues. Suzuki made the start on Friday after delivering a pinch-hit single on Thursday, but he failed to take advantage of the opportunity. He remains two hits away from 3,000 in MLB.

Francisco Cervelli had to be removed from Friday's game against the Brewers after getting hit on the right ankle by a pitch while behind the plate.

Cervelli had to be helped off the field by team trainers and was unable to put any weight on his injured ankle. He'll presumably head for X-rays and the Pirates should have an update on his status before Saturday's game. Losing Cervelli for any length of time would be very detrimental to the Pirates.

Alex Dickerson was forced to leave Friday's game against the Reds in the first inning after a nasty collision with teammate Travis Jankowski.

Dickerson was attempting to track down a line drive from Zack Cozart in the left-center field gap when he was upended by a sliding Jankowski. He was able to walk off the field under his own power eventually, but will certainly head for further evaluation. Dickerson had homered in each of his last four games and his absence for any length of time would be a big blow to the Padres offense.
Jul 29 - 11:15 PM

Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-5 with a homer and four RBI in Friday’s victory over the Mets.

CarGo got the Rockies on the board with an RBI double in the first inning before slugging a long three-run blast (an estimated 448 feet) in the ninth inning to put the game out of reach. He has now hit safely in 11 straight games, though this was his first multi-hit game since July 18. He’s hitting .317/.369/.549 through 99 games on the year to go along with 21 homers and 66 RBI. Trade chatter has been quiet in recent days with the Rockies playing well.

Tyler Collins homered, tripled and drove home three runs on Friday as the Tigers routed the Astros 14-6 in the opening game of a three-game weekend set in Detroit.

Collins clubbed a three-run homer that capped off a seven-run second inning to put the Tigers ahead 9-2. He then tripled and scored a run in the fifth inning. Even with his two-hit attack, Collins is hitting just .204/.235/.449 with three homers and nine RBI on the season, and he's likely headed for a trip back to Triple-A Toledo once J.D. Martinez completes his rehab assignment.
Jul 29 - 10:38 PM

Edwin Encarnacion socked his 28th home run of the season on Friday, powering the Blue Jays to a 6-5 victory over the visiting Orioles.

Encarnacion hit one of three first-inning solo shots off O's starter Kevin Gausman, as Jose Bautista and Troy Tulowitzki also tagged him. Encarnacion also doubled and walked in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-3 with a pair of runs scored. He's now hitting .265/.357/.549 with 28 bombs and a league-leading 88 RBI on the season.
