Rangers signed RHP Yonata Ortega to a minor league contract.

He also gets an invite to major league spring training. Ortega, 26, posted an ugly 8.12 ERA over 34 relief appearances with the Diamondbacks' Double-A squad this year. He will likely serve as organizational depth for Texas.

Adrian Beltre hit for the cycle, going 4-for-5 as the Rangers fended off the Astros on Monday.

Beltre achieved the cycle in his first four at-bats. He hit a two-run triple and later scored as part of a six-run first inning. Then he doubled in the second inning, singled and scored in the third, and drilled a solo home run in the fifth. Beltre's OPS is back above .700 for the first time since the end of May. He's hitting .270/.312/.417 with nine home runs and 30 RBI.

An MRI has revealed that Andrelton Simmons has a bone bruise in his right thumb.

Simmons suffered the injury when he tried to make a diving catch during Saturday's game. The shortstop was feeling much better on Monday and it doesn't appear at this point that the disabled list is under consideration.

Justin Upton left Monday's game against the Brewers with a bruised right thumb.

It had looked like Upton was pulled Monday simply to get him some rest with such a big lead, but apparently he's dealing with a big of a thumb issue. The Padres are calling him day-to-day for the time being, but he would figure to miss at least a game or two.

Yangervis Solarte hit two home runs, knocked in four runs, and drew a walk in five plate appearances in Monday's win over the Brewers.

Solarte put the Padres on the board early with a first-inning solo home run against Wily Peralta. He added a three-run home run to cap off a six-run seventh inning. The third baseman is on a nine-game hitting streak, the most recent four of which have included multiple hits. Solarte owns a productive .266/.319/.418 batting line with seven home runs and 40 RBI on the year.

Adonis Garcia sent the Braves home happy with a walk-off two-run home run in the 12th inning against the Giants on Monday.

The Braves had fallen behind 8-7 in the top half of the frame, but Garcia played hero when he drilled a two-run shot to right-center against Ryan Vogelsong. He finished 2-for-6 on the night with a double along with the homer. In 11 games in the majors this season, he has nine hits in 40 plate appearances. Six of those nine hits are extra-base hits (three doubles, three homers).

Yoenis Cespedes plated four runs, doubling three times in five at-bats on Monday as the Mets routed the Nationals.

Cespedes had only one hit in eight plate appearances since joining the Mets, but broke out on Monday. He doubled in a pair of runs in the fifth inning and later scored, then added another two-run two-bagger in the sixth before coming home on a wild pitch. The Mets are now in first place ahead of the Nationals and Cespedes should provide plenty more offense for them down the stretch.

Michael Conforto's first major league home run was a three-run home run that gave the Mets a lead they wouldn't relinquish on Monday versus the Marlins.

The 22-year-old rookie was batting .211 (4-for-19) in his first six big league games entering Monday. With a pair of ducks on the pond, Conforto deposited a Tom Koehler offering over the fence in right field at Marlins Park to give the Mets a 3-0 lead. He finished 2-for-4.
Aug 3 - 10:14 PM

Nick Ahmed went 4-for-4 with a solo home run as the Diamondbacks beat the Nationals on Monday.

Ahmed broke a scoreless tie in the top of the third inning with a solo home run off of Doug Fister. It was one of four Arizona homers on the evening. The shortstop hasn't exactly been an offensive dynamo, as Monday's performance still leaves him with a lackluster .232/.289/.348 batting line along with seven home runs and 26 RBI.

Freddie Freeman was pulled from Monday's game versus the Giants with a right oblique strain.

Well, at least he didn't aggravate his wright injury. The Braves are calling Freeman day-to-day for the time being, but, as we all know, oblique injuries usually wind up leading to stints on the disabled list. Chris Johnson would be poised to take over at first base if Freeman misses significant time.

Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Jason Kipnis (shoulder) is expected to be sidelined for 2-3 weeks.

Kipnis tried to battle through a sore right shoulder for a few days, but the Indians finally placed him on the disabled list Monday. He doesn't have any structural damage, but it's an ailment that's bothered Kipnis off and on for a good chunk of the season. Mike Aviles is likely to receive the bulk of the playing time at second base while Kipnis is out.
Aug 3 - 7:46 PM

Chris Tillman (ankle) threw on flat ground from 90 feet Monday and is hoping to throw a bullpen session Wednesday.

Tillman had to be scratched from Monday's scheduled start due to a sprained right ankle, but he should be ready to rejoin the rotation later this week. The right-hander has been on a roll of late with a 1.09 ERA over his last six starts.
