CBS Sports' Danny Knobler reports that the Brewers have considered trading Corey Hart to free up salary to go after a pitcher.

Hart is penciled in as the first baseman for next season, but the Brewers will need to clear some salary to be in the market for big-name pitchers. The 30-year-old is owed $10 million in 2013 before hitting free agency. His limited no-trade clause allows him to block deals to 15 teams.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday night that Sam Dyson will serve as the team's primary closer for now.

Hunter Strickland broke his right (pitching) hand when he punched a door out of frustration following a blown save Monday against the Marlins and is expected to miss the next 6-8 weeks. Dyson earned the first save in Strickland's absence on Tuesday versus Miami, inducing a game-ending double play from Brian Anderson after Will Smith issued a walk to Yadiel Rivera and struck out Derek Dietrich to begin the top of the ninth inning. Dyson holds an impressive 2.45 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in 33 innings this season. Mark Melancon and Tony Watson also make for good stashes in mixed fantasy leagues in case Dyson can't keep it going.

Rich Hill’s return to Dodgers’ rotation Tuesday proved fruitful, as he tossed six scoreless innings and settled for a no-decision against the Cubs.

Hill showed no rust after missing the last month of action with another blister issue. He permitted just three singles and two walks while striking out six Cubs hitters in the excellent effort. Unfortunately for Hill, he missed out on a win when Kyle Schwarber took reliever Erik Goeddel deep to knot things up in the seventh inning. The Cubs eventually won in extras. Hill’s next start will also come against the Cubs, but that one will be at home.

A.J. Ramos will undergo season-ending surgery Wednesday for a torn labrum in his right shoulder.

Ramos was placed on the disabled list May 28 with what was originally described as right rotator cuff tendinitis. After getting a number of different opinions, the torn labrum was revealed and the 31-year-old setup man opted to go under the knife. He'll be a free agent this winter and might struggle to attract interest after posting an ugly 6.41 ERA and 1.63 WHIP over 28 appearances this season for the Mets. His rehabilitation from this shoulder procedure could very well linger into next spring.

Freddy Peralta was excellent in his return to the majors Tuesday, fanning seven over six scoreless frames in the Brewers’ 3-2 victory over the Pirates.

Peralta gave up just two singles – one of them being the infield variety – and didn’t walk a batter across his six superb innings. He’s now allowed just six hits over 15 2/3 innings in his first three major league starts, and the no free passes is huge for a guy who walked six in his last outing for the Brewers last month. We remain worried about Peralta’s control getting him into trouble, but he’s earned more starts and looks like a good streaming option Sunday against a Cardinals offense that’s struggled.

J.P. Crawford has been diagnosed with a fractured left hand and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

Crawford suffered the injury when he was hit on the hand by a pitch in the bottom of the fourth inning Tuesday night against the Cardinals. This probably means increased playing time for Maikel Franco, who has been in and out of the Phillies' lineup over the last couple of weeks. Crawford has struggled at the plate this season, but the 23-year-old is a big part of the future in Philadelphia.

Matt Carpenter drilled a go-ahead home run in the ninth inning of Tuesday's win over the Phillies.

Carpenter was hitless in his first three plate appearances, but he then tied the game up with a two-out, two-run double in the seventh inning before taking rookie flamethrower Seranthony Dominguez deep on an 0-2 count with two outs in the ninth to break a tie. He's homered four times over his last five games and now has 12 longballs on the season.

Odubel Herrera homered for the third day in a row in the Phillies' loss to the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Herrera mysteriously tried to bunt for a hit in the first inning with two on and nobody out. He had a better plan of attack in his second plate appearance when he took Luke Weaver over the right-field wall. Herrera had been in a horrible slump but has now gone deep four times over his last five contests and has 10 hits over his last six games.

Trea Turner had a monster night at the plate Tuesday, going 4-for-4 with a solo home run in the Nationals' win over the Orioles.

Turner's solo shot was the only hit the Nats had through the first four innings. The shortstop led off the fifth with a single and Washington's offense got to work after that, ultimately totaling 14 hits and nine runs. Turner's home run was his eighth on the season and first in 12 tilts.

Mike Clevinger fanned 10 while limiting the White Sox to one run in 7 2/3 innings in a victory Tuesday.

Half of Clevinger's six wins have come against the White Sox; he's allowed three earned runs and fanned 28 over 22 1/3 innings in his three starts against the team. His control still rates as uneven, but he's been so much better at avoiding walks than he was last year, making it quite possible that he'll maintain the strong results.

Domingo German limited the Mariners to two runs – one earned – across seven innings Tuesday in the Yankees’ 7-2 win.

He gave up a solo home run to Nelson Cruz, but it was one of just two base knocks he permitted. German had his swing-and-miss stuff again in this one, whiffing nine over his seven frames while not issuing a walk. He boasts a 28/2 K/BB ratio over 19 innings across his last three starts, rebounding nicely from a rough four-start stretch. German will try to keep the momentum going Sunday in Tampa.

Aaron Hicks went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's victory over the Mariners.

It was one of four longballs the Yankees had on the night, as Giancarlo Stanton, Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres also went deep. Hicks -- who also added a pair of singles -- has now homered in three straight games and four of his last six contests, pushing his season total up to an even 10. He has seven hits over those three games.
