Angels recalled C Hank Conger from Triple-A Salt Lake.

As expected, Conger will replace Bobby Wilson (concussion) on the active roster. The 24-year-old likely would have joined the club following Chris Iannetta's wrist surgery, but he only recently returned from an elbow injury. He's obviously a much bigger threat than John Hester with the bat, so he's well worth adding in AL-only leagues.

Chris Taylor posted three singles with a run scored and an RBI across four at-bats in Monday's win against the Twins.

Taylor has been on a roll lately, posting three consecutive multi-hit games while collecting two or more hits in eight of his past 10 outings. The outfielder is hitting a ridiculous .525 (21-for-40) with three doubles, three triples and two home runs during the run to push his average from .285 to .318 just since July 9.

Eddie Rosario posted a pair of doubles, a solo home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Monday's road loss against the Dodgers.

Rosario has rolled up two or more hits in three straight games and he is hitting a robust .369 (24-for-65) with 10 doubles, a home run and 10 RBI in the month of July while posting an outstanding .969 OPS. He has increased his average from .276 to .296 since the calendar flipped to July.

J.D. Martinez (hand) crushed a three-run home run for his only at-bat across five at-bats in Monday's win against the Braves.

Martinez returned to the starting lineup after suffering a bruised hand on a hit-by-pitch in his debut last Wednesday. Over his past six games he has driven in 10 runs dating back to his tenure with the Tigers.

George Springer (quad) is expected to avoid the disabled list.

It sounds like the left quad discomfort that forced Springer from Monday's game might have been a cramp more than anything else. Astros manager A.J. Hinch said that Springer is considered day-to-day.

Astros recalled OF Derek Fisher from Triple-A Fresno.

George Springer (quad) is expected to avoid the disabled list, but the Astros want to give Fisher another look, anyway. The 23-year-old made a nice five-game impression (.278/.381/.611, two homers) last month and sports a robust .318/.384/.583 line with 21 homers, 66 RBI and 16 steals this season with Fresno. At-bats figure to be available in left field with Marwin Gonzalez moving in to shortstop to cover for Carlos Correa (thumb), so it will be interesting to see whether the Astros give Fisher a chance to run away with a job.

Jose Altuve went 4-for-4 with three RBI and three runs scored in the Astros' 13-4 thrashing of the Phillies on Monday.

Altuve reached base in all five of his trips to the plate, including a first-inning walk. He also had two doubles and a pair of run-scoring singles. The star second baseman has somehow gotten hotter since the All-Star break, even after a scorching first half. He's slashing .365/.431/.574 for an Astros team that is 33 games over .500.

Angels placed RHP Alex Meyer on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to July 20, with right shoulder inflammation.

Meyer certainly didn't show any signs of being injured in his last outing, surrendering just one hit over seven shutout innings versus the Nationals. Unfortunately, the tall right-hander has a history of shoulder issues, so this obviously isn't a good sign. Meyer has continued to struggle with his control this season (42 walks), but he holds a 3.74 ERA with 75 strikeouts over 67 1/3 innings.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Red Sox "continue to scout" Eduardo Nunez.

The impending free agent is a shoo-in to be traded before the deadline. Boston makes some sense as a landing spot for Nunez, as he'd offer insurance for Rafael Devers at third base and could move around to different positions if it looks like Devers is ready to contribute. The 30-year-old is batting .305/.330/.414 with four homers and 17 steals for the Giants this season.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Brewers are "fading" in the trade pursuit of Sonny Gray.

Joel Sherman of New York Post reported earlier Monday that the Brewers and Yankees were viewed as the "strongest pursuers" of Gray, so this is big news. Milwaukee still figures to trade for a starter, but it's looking unlikelier now that that hurler will be Gray. In addition to the Yankees, the Astros, Braves, Mariners, Twins and Indians have been among the teams connected to the A's right-hander.

Mike Moustakas went 1-for-4 with a homer and two RBI in the Royals' 5-3 extra-innings defeat of the Tigers on Monday.

Moustakas hit a run-scoring sacrifice fly in the top of the fourth inning and a solo shot in the top of the 12th as Kansas City outlasted Detroit at Comerica Park. The 28-year-old third baseman boasts an .874 OPS with 29 home runs and 64 RBI in 89 games this season for the Royals, who have won six straight games and continue to make a hard charge at a playoff spot.
Jul 24 - 11:32 PM

Mike Leake pitched seven shutout innings Monday in the Cardinals' 8-2 defeat of the Rockies.

Leake carved his way through a dangerous Colorado lineup, yielding only four hits -- all singles -- while striking out six batters and issuing zero walks. It was a nice bounceback effort from the 29-year-old right-hander, who was pounded for seven runs -- four earned -- on 10 hits last Wednesday by the Mets. He'll bring a cool 3.20 ERA into his next start at home versus the Diamondbacks.
