Ryan Doumit will likely be shut down due to a thumb injury.

No word on the severity of the injury, but he will have all offseason to heal. If he's truly done, he will finish the season with a .275/.320/.461 batting line to go along with career-highs in home runs (18), RBI (75) and games played (134). His two-year, $7 million extension looks like a pretty nice value at the moment.

Mike Trout went deep twice in five at-bats during a 5-1 win over the Orioles on Saturday.

He did his damage early, blasting solo bombs off starter Kevin Gausman in each of his first two plate appearances. The young superstar's prowess at the plate this season is obscured because he missed six weeks with a thumb injury, but his 1.164 OPS would be the highest in the majors by more than a hundred points if he had enough at-bats to qualify. He is slashing .339/.464/.700 with 26 longballs, 59 RBI and 61 runs scored. He's stolen 13 bases and been caught three times.

Luis Valbuena drilled a pair of home runs in a win over the Orioles on Saturday.

He hit a solo shot in the second inning and a two-run jack in the fourth -- both off starter Kevin Gausman. He also walked in the contest. The veteran corner infielder has struggled to hit for average this year but still has plenty of thump. He has a .197 batting average with 15 home runs and 42 RBI in 244 at-bats.

Trevor Bauer threw 6 1/3 shutout innings as the Indians blanked the Royals 5-0 on Saturday.

Bauer bent, yielding seven hits and walking two, but he never broke, keeping the Royals at bay in critical at-bats. It's the continuation of what's been a really good second half for the 26-year-old, who's 5-1 since the break and who's registered five quality starts in his last six outings. Bauer is now 12-8 with a 4.50 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 149/48 K/BB ratio over 134 innings in total. He's got a tall order ahead of him Thursday when the Red Sox are in town.

Dominic Smith homered and scored two runs as the Mets bested the Marlins 8-1 on Saturday.

Smith went up to get a Javier Guerra offering in the eighth inning, lifting it over the right field fence to pad the Mets' lead. He's now homered twice in his nine MLB games, two of his five hits in 29 at-bats since his promotion earlier this month. Just 22 years old, Smith may learn on a curve but is a name to keep in mind for the future of the first base position.

Jose Berrios notched seven strikeouts while allowing just two base hits in seven shutout innings during a 5-0 throttling of the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

It was total dominance against a strong lineup. He allowed one walk, one single and one double and that was it. The 23-year-old Berrios has been very inconsistent this year but nights like this provide glimpses of his elite potential. He improves to 11-5 with a 3.99 ERA through 18 starts. He will try to maintain his momentum on Thursday against the White Sox.

Collin McHugh fired six scoreless innings in the Astros' 3-0 shutout of the Athletics on Saturday.

McHugh scattered six hits and a walk, using three strikeouts to get through six innings unscathed. The victory was the first of the year in six starts for the 30-year-old, who didn't make his debut until July 22. He's had one clunker but has largely been decent in those six starts, owning a 4.01 ERA and 1.31 WHIP. He'll try to make it two in a row Friday at the Angels.

Miguel Sano left Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks with left shin soreness.

The injury is to his lower shin. Sano didn't look right running to first on a fourth-inning double play ball but stayed in until Mitch Garver pinch-hit for him in the seventh. He went 0-for-2 with a walk before exiting. Consider the All-Star third baseman day-to-day.

Rafael Devers mashed his eighth homer Saturday in the Red Sox’s loss to the Yankees.

He trimmed New York’s lead to 4-3 by swatting a solo shot to deep center in the seventh. Devers also singled and scored on Jackie Bradley’s RBI single in the fifth inning. The rookie has been on fire, hitting a robust .407 throughout his six-game hitting streak. He’s now homered in three straight games against the Yankees, becoming the first Red Sox hitter to do that since Will Middlebrooks in 2013.
Aug 19 - 10:33 PM

Mitch Haniger went 2-for-4 and cranked a grand slam to lead his club to a 7-6 win over the Rays on Saturday.

His prodigious shot off starter Jake Odorizzi turned a one-run deficit into a three-run lead in the third inning. This was his first game since being hit in the face by a Jacob deGrom pitch on July 29th. He has missed about 60 games this year with various injuries. The young outfielder has a .259 batting average with eight home runs and 28 RBI in 59 games.
Aug 19 - 10:33 PM

Making his return from the disabled list, CC Sabathia scattered four hits and two runs over six strong innings Saturday in a win over the Red Sox.

He fanned four and walked one over the course of 80 pitches. The only runs he allowed came in the fifth inning when the Red Sox broke through for two hits and a walk. The big left-hander has been money versus Boston, yielding just two runs in 20 innings against them this year. Saturday’s win was Sabathia’s first since July 21. He’ll make his next start at home Friday against Seattle.

Blue Jays acquired RHP Tom Koehler from the Marlins in exchange for RHP Osman Gutierrez.

Koehler has battled injuries throughout the year and has also spent time in Triple-A, but offers a wealth of experience (132 major league starts) and could benefit from a change of scenery. If nothing else, the 31-year-old gives Toronto some much-needed pitching depth. He didn't cost the Jays much, either. Gutierrez has posted a miserable 7.85 ERA over 18 starts for Low-A Lansing this year.
