Twins avoided arbitration with RHP Jared Burton by agreeing to a two-year, $5.5 million contract extension.

The Twins will also hold a $3.6 million option on him for 2015. The deal buys out Burton's first year of free agency and also gives Minnesota a chance to keep him around for an additional year. The 31-year-old was a nice surprise in 2012, posting a 2.18 ERA and 55/16 K/BB ratio over 64 appearances.

Mike Trout hit one of the Angels' four home runs Tuesday, finishing 2-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored in a 10-2 victory.

Trout was hit by a pitch and scored in the first inning before blasting a three-run homer in the second. The home run was his 22nd home run of the season. The all-everything outfielder is once again among the American League leaders in most every category and will make his third straight All-Star Game start next week. Trout is hitting .302/.396/.584 with 48 RBI, 62 runs scored and nine steals on the year.

Manny Banuelos held the Brewers to one run over 5 1/3 innings to earn his first major league win, a 4-3 victory, on Tuesday.

The second batter of the game, Jonathan Lucroy, hit a solo shot off Banuelos, but the southpaw locked it down after that. Banuelos scattered five hits and three walks on the evening. The 24-year-old has been effective, if brief, in his two major league starts, throwing a combined 11 innings while allowing just the one run. A date with the Rockies in Colorado on Sunday may not be so friendly to Banuelos.

Tests showed that Kolten Wong suffered a mild concussion during the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Cubs.

Wong said after the game that he passed the test and is fine, but obviously that wasn't the case. That he says he's feeling OK suggests maybe he won't need to go on the 7-day concussion disabled list, but we should know more on Wednesday.

Miguel Sano hit his first major league home run and the Twins raced past the Orioles 8-3 on Tuesday.

Sano hit the blast, a two-run shot, off Orioles starter Kevin Gausman in the first inning. He later collected an RBI walk, finishing 2-for-3 with three RBI. Through six games the 22-year-old has been as advertised, hitting .450 with a 1.242 OPS and five RBI. If all goes as planned, the homer will be the first of many Sano will hit over the course of his career.

Gregory Polanco delivered a run scoring triple late to help the Pirates edge the Padres on Tuesday.

Polanco finished 1-for-3 with a pair of walks on the evening. He tripled to bring in Sean Rodriguez and break a 2-2 tie in the bottom of the eighth inning. All the Pirates had to do was bring in Mark Melancon from there. The 23-year-old has otherwise had a quiet year offensively, batting .232/.304/.336 with three home runs and 20 RBI.

Alex Gordon went 4-for-5 with a double and four runs batted in as the Royals easily beat the Rays in the second game of a doubleheader on Tuesday.

Gordon tied the game at one apiece in the fifth inning with an RBI single, added another RBI single to cap off a four-run sixth, and knocked in two with a double in the eighth. Gordon entered the game batting .133 (4-for-30) in his previous nine games. On the season, he's sitting on 10 home runs with 37 RBI, 30 runs scored, and a .280/.394/.459 batting line.

Roberto Osuna picked up his fourth save of the season Tuesday, pitching a scoreless ninth to secure the Blue Jays' 2-1 win over the White Sox.

Osuna gave up a hit but nothing more in the frame. The right-hander has asserted himself since taking over the closer role for the Jays, registering four saves since June 22 while allowing one run in seven innings of work. The 20-year-old now owns a 2.08 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 43/10 K/BB ratio over 39 innings on the year.
Jul 7 - 11:24 PM

Michael Brantley went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, helping the Indians fend off the Astros on Tuesday.

Brantley singled with two outs in the first inning and came around to score on David Murphy's double. He then clobbered a solo home run in the sixth inning to add an insurance run. Though he hasn't been nearly as dominant at the plate as he was last year, Brantley is still batting a productive .293/.365/.425 with five home runs, 43 RBI, 31 runs scored, and nine stolen bases.
Jul 7 - 10:46 PM

Corey Kluber hurled 6 2/3 shutout innings to earn the win on Tuesday against the Astros.

Kluber limited the opposition to five hits (all singles) and two walks with seven strikeouts. The right-hander has looked downright dominating at times and pedestrian at other points this season. Altogether, he has a 3.45 ERA with a 1.13 WHIP and a 148/26 K/BB ratio in 125 1/3 innings. Kluber will close the chapter on the first half at home against the Athletics next.
Jul 7 - 10:39 PM

Brett Lawrie went 1-for-4, delivering a home run in the top of the 10th to help the Athletics squeak out a win against the Yankees on Tuesday.

Lawrie was 0-for-3 with three strikeouts coming into his at-bat in the 10th inning, so the home run was a nice way to recover. He's gone yard eight times this season with 37 RBI and a .291/.328/.432 batting line.
Jul 7 - 10:25 PM

Xander Bogaerts hit a bases-clearing single in the seventh inning to send the Red Sox to a victory over the Marlins on Tuesday.

Bogaerts finished 2-for-4 with a double on the evening. The bases were loaded with two outs in the seventh inning with the Red Sox trailing by two runs when Bogaerts lined a single to right-center, clearing the bases and giving his team the lead. The 22-year-old has hit safely in all six games in July. In those six games, he's registered multiple hits in four and multiple RBI in three. Bogaerts is hitting .304/.341/.418 with three home runs and 40 RBI on the season.
