Nationals signed LHP Bill Bray to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Bray, who was originally drafted by the Expos back in 2004, was limited to just 8 2/3 innings for Cincinnati this year due to back and groin issues. However, he has enjoyed some success in 2010 and 2011 and could make for a savvy addition if healthy.

Lance McCullers held the Royals to a lone run in seven innings of work to pick up the win on Monday.

McCullers scattered four hits and a pair of walks while striking out six. The lone run came in the seventh inning on a Salvador Perez home run. It's only the third time in nine starts the right-hander has pitched into the seventh inning, but he has otherwise had a terrific start to his major league career, brandishing a 2.19 ERA with a 1.01 WHIP and a 58/18 K/BB ratio in 53 1/3 innings. McCullers will match up with the Red Sox at Fenway Park next.

Billy Hamilton reached base four times and stole four bases in six plate appearances on Monday to help the Reds stave off the Twins.

Hamilton stole four bases in a game earlier this year and also accomplished the feat in September of 2013, so it's old hat for him. He singled twice and walked twice to set up his speed attack. The outfielder is batting a measly .224/.273/.295 but has scored 37 runs while stealing 40 bases in 46 attempts just ahead of the schedule's midpoint.

Jonathan Lucroy tallied four hits in five at-bats, scoring twice and knocking in two runs to help the Brewers take down the Phillies on Monday.

All four hits were singles. He singled and scored in the first and third innings, then hit run-scoring singles in the sixth and eighth innings. The catcher missed about a month and a half of the season due to a broken toe and has only been able to muster a .235/.284/.302 batting line with one home run and 14 RBI on the year.

The Rays officially announced that Matt Moore (elbow) will make his season debut on Thursday against the Indians.

Moore struck out eight while allowing two runs over five innings for Triple-A Durham on Saturday in his final rehab start. Overall, he held a 2.95 ERA and 24/8 K/BB ratio over 21 1/3 frames across five rehab outings. The numbers are nice, but Moore's velocity hasn't returned to pre-Tommy John levels yet and he's a guy who had control issues before the operation. Fantasy owners would be wise not to get too carried away with expectations.

Mitch Moreland drilled a pair of home runs, powering the Rangers past the Orioles on Monday.

Another big day for the first baseman. He clubbed a solo shot in the second inning off of Bud Norris, then victimized Norris again in the fourth inning for a two-run blast. He finished 2-for-5 on the evening. Moreland has 12 homers on the year with 39 RBI and a .300/.346/.533 batting line in what has been a career year.

Cody Anderson brought a perfect game into the seventh inning against the Rays on Monday, ultimately getting the win with eight innings of one-run ball.

Anderson's bid for perfection was broken up in the seventh inning when Grady Sizemore ripped a solo home run to right field. It was only one of two hits he'd allow on the night. He walked none and struck out two. So far, so good for Anderson in two major league starts. He's allowed the one run in 15 2/3 innings with six strikeouts and one walk. It doesn't seem like a good long-term recipe but stranger things have happened. Anderson will look to keep it going in Pittsburgh against the Pirates next.

Clay Buchholz delivered eight innings of one-run ball in a win against the Blue Jays on Monday.

Buchholz's ERA continues to drop at a precipitous rate. In his third consecutive sterling performance this month, the right-hander scattered five hits without issuing a walk and striking out five. The lone run came around in the sixth inning on Josh Donaldson's RBI double. Buchholz heads into a weekend start at home against the Astros with a 3.48 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and a 96/23 K/BB ratio in 101 innings.

Carl Crawford (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Rancho Cuncamonga on Tuesday.

He'll remain with Rancho Cuncamonga through Thursday before then likely moving up to Triple-A Oklahoma City. Crawford, who has been sidelined since late April with a strained right oblique, is pegged for a backup role upon his activation from the disabled list.

Jered Weaver (hip) threw a bullpen session on Monday.

He threw all fastballs during the 20-pitch session and felt good afterwards. Weaver will toss another bullpen session in a few days and will incorporate all of his pitches that time. The veteran right-hander has missed the last week of action with left hip irritation and isn't expected to rejoin the Angels' rotation until after the All-Star break.
Jun 29 - 7:20 PM

Alcides Escobar (finger) was a late scratch from the Royals' lineup Monday.

Escobar had to be pulled from Sunday's game because of a split nail on his right index finger. He admitted prior to Monday's game that he's having some pain when he throws and the Royals have decided to play it safe and scratch him. Consider Escobar day-to-day.
Jun 29 - 7:02 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Tampa on Monday.

He was cleared for game action after working out with the Yankees over the weekend with no issues. Ellsbury will be used in the designated hitter spot for Tampa on Monday and is slated for 3-4 plate appearances. The Yankees expect him to need only a few rehab games, so Ellsbury could be activated from the disabled list before the end of the week.
