Red Sox team president Dave Dombrowski announced Sunday that top prospect Rafael Devers will be recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket to play third base.

Devers was just moved up to Triple-A on July 14 where he hit .355 with a pair of homers and four RBI in his eight games. The 20-year-old sensation should get a chance to hold the position for the remainder of the season and could be a worthwhile investment in mixed leagues.

Mark Trumbo homered and doubled in the Orioles' 9-7 defeat of the Astros on Sunday.

Trumbo has tallied three home runs since the All-Star break and he's now sporting a .249/.311/.425 batting line with 17 homers and 50 RBI in 98 total games this season. He should be a nice source of power down the stretch.

Stephen Strasburg was removed from Sunday's start against the Diamondbacks after two innings due to an apparent injury.

No word yet on the reason for Strasburg's departure, but it's likely to be health related. Before departing, the right-hander had issued three walks and allowed a hit while striking out two in two scoreless innings. Look for the Nationals to provide an update on his status soon.

Clayton Kershaw was removed from Sunday's start against the Braves after two innings due to tightness in his lower back.

Kershaw has a history of back issues, so this is troubling news. The severity of the injury, and ultimately how much time he may miss, both remain unclear at the moment. Prior to departing Kershaw allowed just one walk while striking out two over his two scoreless innings of work. He owns a sparkling 2.04 ERA and 0.88 WHIP this season.
