David Ortiz underwent ultrasound treatment for his right Achilles tendon Monday.

Ortiz will be in a walking boot for the next 7-10 days and won't be able to run for 4-6 weeks, but should have plenty of time to get ready for spring training. "I did it just to make sure," said Ortiz. "I talked to so many people that had it done, so I wanted to be sure. They said they were sore after doing it, but I wasn't sore at all." Ortiz, who turns 37 in November, is due to hit free agency five days after the World Series.

Jake Odorizzi (oblique) tossed 5 2/3 innings Monday in his latest minor league rehab start with High-A Charlotte.

Odorizzi, who has been out for a month with an oblique strain, allowed just two hits and one walk while striking out six. I haven't had any pain for quite a while now so I was just looking to get through this healthy and make sure I got all my pitches in," said Odorizzi. He's on track to rejoin the Rays on Saturday against the Astros.

Howie Kendrick went 4-for-5 with a double, a triple, an RBI, and two runs scored as the Dodgers outlasted the Phillies for a win on Monday.

It's his third four-hit game in his last 10 games. He tripled in the first inning and scored the Dodgers' first run, then led off the fifth inning and came around to score on Yasmani Grandal's three-run home run. He added an RBI single in the sixth, finishing a home run short of the cycle. Kendrick is hitting .300/.349/.432 with seven home runs, 37 RBI, and 40 runs scored on the year.

J.D. Martinez hit his 24th home run of the season, setting a new career high and helping the Tigers bash their way to a win against the Mariners on Monday.

Martinez went back-to-back with Victor Martinez in the fourth inning and finished 3-for-5 with two RBI and three runs scored on the evening. He has hit consecutively in seven games, homered in three consecutive games, and has homered 11 times in his last 13 games. Named an AL All-Star on Monday, Martinez is batting .290/.344/.573 with 24 home runs and 58 RBI this season.

Nick Castellanos went 4-for-5 with a solo home run and four runs batted in to help the Tigers pound out a win against the Mariners on Monday.

Every Tiger, with the exception of Ian Kinsler, was hitting Mariner pitching on Monday as the club pounded out 19 hits. Castellanos started the scoring in the second with a solo home run, added a two-run single in a five-run sixth inning, and tacked on an RBI single in a four-run seventh. The third baseman is on a seven-game hitting streak, now batting .245/.289/.365 with five home runs and 34 RBI.

Jon Niese kept the Giants off the board over eight innings, earning his fourth win of the season on Monday.

Niese limited the Giants to five base runners (three hits and two walks) while striking out four. The lefty hit the kids in May but has racked up quality starts in each of his last six starts. As a result, his ERA is down to 3.58 with a 1.42 WHIP and a 67/33 K/BB ratio in 98 innings. The Mets, who have been attempting to trade him, couldn't be happier. Niese will take on the Diamondbacks at home in his final first half start.

Johnny Monell hit a two-run double in the ninth inning to help the Mets hold off the Giants on Monday.

Neither the Mets nor the Giants seemed very interested in scoring runs after eight innings, but perhaps Monell just wanted to go home. Finishing 1-for-4, he doubled in a pair of runs off of Santiago Casilla to break a scoreless tie. He later came around to score on a Juan Lagares single. Monell had accrued an RBI in only one of his other 20 games this season, back on May 10 against the Phillies. He's batting an unimpressive .189/.250/.243 with four RBI.

Jon Lester brought a no-hitter into the seventh inning, but ultimately lost it and the game on Monday after giving up two unearned runs in seven innings against the Cardinals.

The highlight of the game may have been Jon Lester ending a career-long 0-for-66 skid at the plate when he beat out an infield single in the second inning. He brought a no-hit bid into the seventh inning but lost it when Jhonny Peralta, fittingly, reached on an infield single. Kris Bryant later committed an error, which set up two unearned runs. Lester allowed two hits overall, walked two, and struck out eight on the evening. Lester has pitched quite well after a tough April, owning a 3.48 ERA on the year with a 1.28 WHIP and a 101/30 K/BB ratio in 103 1/3 innings. He wraps up his first half with a home start against the White Sox.
Jul 7 - 12:11 AM

Kelly Johnson went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a two-run home run to help the Braves fend off the Brewers on Monday.

Johnson started the scoring with a two-run blast to right-field off of Kyle Lohse in the first inning. He added an RBI single in the second inning to make it a 4-1 game. The 33-year-old has cooled off considerably since being activated from the disabled list a month ago, but is still hitting a respectable .272/.315/.437 with seven home runs and 28 RBI.
Jul 6 - 11:42 PM

Brian Dozier slugged a walk-off two-run home run in the 10th inning, helping the Twins outlast the Orioles on Monday.

Dozier was 0-for-3 with a walk leading into the at-bat against Tommy Hunter. Perhaps angered by his being left off the AL All-Star roster, Dozier parked a two-run home run beyond the left field fence for his 17th home run of the season. Among qualified second basemen, Stephen Drew is the only other hitter at the position with double-digits in home runs (11). Dozier is hitting a cool .260/.332/.517 with 42 RBI and seven stolen bases.
Jul 6 - 11:02 PM

Preston Tucker had the best game of his young career, going 4-for-5 with a double, a home run, two RBI, and two runs scored to lead the Astros past the Indians on Monday.

Tucker, celebrating his 25th birthday, drilled a solo home run to right field in the fourth inning against Carlos Carrasco and added an RBI single in the sixth. It's the first four-hit game of his young career. He's hitting .252/.316/.434 with five home runs and 21 RBI in 174 plate appearances.
Jul 6 - 10:48 PM

Pedro Alvarez delivered a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning, helping the Pirates eke out a win against the Padres on Monday.

In a 1-1 game, Alvarez stepped to the plate with runners on second and third and two outs in the bottom of the ninth against Brandon Maurer. He hit a single to right-center to plate the winning run, finishing 1-for-4. Alvarez has been solid this season, hitting almost exclusively against right-handed pitching. He owns a .242/.313/.450 triple-slash line with 12 home runs and 37 RBI.
