Cubs signed LHP Dontrelle Willis to a minor league contract.

Willis announced his retirement from baseball in July after posting an 8.53 ERA and 2.21 WHIP in four games for the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate. The D-Train hasn't been major league relevant since the 2007 season, but is still only 30 years old. It's a low-risk signing for the Cubs, and if he can regain his control, he could develop into a decent lefty out of the bullpen.

J.C. Ramirez kept the Red Sox to one run over six innings Saturday, leading the Angels to a 6-3 victory.

Ramirez gave up just four hits, one of which was a Mitch Moreland solo home run for the only Sox run against him. He also didn't walk a batter while striking out five. A lot of the shine has worn off the 28-year-old since his surprising start to the season, but he's still 7-5 with a passable 4.38 ERA in 17 appearances. Another tough test is on tap for Thursday, when the Angels travel "across town" to face the Dodgers in an interleague battle.

Josh Harrison doubled, homered and scored two runs in the Pirates' 7-3 win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

Harrison got busy early, doubling into the left field corner in the first inning and scoring on a Josh Bell single. He drove himself in in the fifth inning, just barely clearing the left field wall for a solo homer, his ninth dinger of the year. The 29-year-old also plated a second run when he was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the sixth. Harrison doesn't have a permanent home on the diamond, but he's not leaving the lineup any time soon, hitting .294/.374/.463 in 72 games this year.

Jacob deGrom limited the Giants to one run over eight innings, striking out seven, and the Mets came on late to grab a 5-2 win Saturday.

deGrom scattered four hits and a walk but was in danger of not factoring in the decision after Brandon Belt's solo homer in the seventh inning tied the game at 1-1. Fortunately for the right-hander, the Mets answered in the top of the eighth and the bullpen held on, getting him his third straight win. He's allowed one run while going at least eight innings in each of those three wins, improving him to 7-3 with a 3.71 ERA and 1.27 WHIP through 15 starts overall. The 29-year-old will have a terrific chance to make it four in a row when he takes on the Phillies on Friday.

A.J. Pollock (groin, quad) will resume his rehab assignment with Triple-A Reno on Sunday.

He hasn't played since tweaking his quad on Monday. According to Steve Gilbert of MLB.com, the Diamondbacks are looking to get Pollock 10 at-bats before bringing him up to the big leagues. Barring another setback, Pollock should be back in Arizona by mid-week.

Corey Kluber punched out 13 batters and allowed two runs -- both unearned -- in seven innings and did not earn a decision as his club lost to the Twins on Saturday.

Second baseman Jason Kipnis made a throwing error on the first batter of the game that led to two unearned runs scoring in the first inning. Kluber didn't let it bother him and proceeded to dominate the game. He surrendered just three base hits and two walks. Unfortunately his teammates couldn't help him out with much run support. This was the third game in a row and fifth time in his 11 starts this season that Kluber has notched double-figure strikeouts in a game. His record holds at 6-2 with a 3.24 ERA. He has 93 punchouts and 19 walks in 72 1/3 innings.

Trea Turner went 5-for-5 with two runs batted in and four runs scored as the Nationals thrashed the Reds on Saturday.

All five hits were singles and he also walked in the ballgame. His team amassed 19 hits and seven walks as they circled the bases all afternoon. The big day boosts Turner's slash line to .275/.312/.424 in 292 plate appearances. He has hit seven home runs, scored 49 times, driven in 32 runs and swiped 28 bags on the season.

Michael Taylor went 4-for-5, belted two home runs, drove in three runs and scored four times as his team routed the Reds 18-3 on Saturday.

He delivered a week's worth of production in one day in this good, old-fashioned barn-burner of a ballgame. He singled and scored in the second inning, bashed a two-run dinger in the fourth inning, ripped a solo shot in the sixth, then doubled and scored in the eighth. He is batting .273/.306/.507 with 10 longballs, 32 runs and 28 RBI. He has stolen seven bases in nine tries.

Homer Bailey was crushed to the tune of eight runs -- all earned -- in just 1 2/3 innings in a gruesome loss to the Nationals on Saturday.

He was making his first start of the season after finally recovering from elbow surgery. He gave up six base hits and three walks. Eight of those nine ducks on the pond came home to roost, leaving Bailey with a 43.20 ERA and 5.40 WHIP. Those numbers can only improve when he takes the mound against the Brewers next week.

Corey Seager (hamstring) is not in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Rockies.

Seager will get the night off after leaving Friday's game with a right hamstring injury. His MRI confirmed a Grade 1 strain, but the Dodgers are still calling him day-to-day. Enrique Hernandez will fill in at shortstop and bat eighth against right-hander Tyler Chatwood.
Jun 24 - 7:37 PM

Carlos Gonzalez (shoulder) remains out of the Rockies' lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.

He's been dealing with soreness in his right shoulder. Raimel Tapia will draw another start in right field and bat seventh against left-hander Clayton Kershaw. Gonzalez has had a rough year and has been especially cold recently, batting just .172 over 58 June at-bats.

Trey Mancini went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's 8-3 win over the Rays.

All the 25-year-old seems to do is hit, smashing his 13th homer of the year -- a two-run blast -- off Rays reliever Jumbo Diaz in the seventh inning. He's now hitting an impressive .370 (30-for-81) with six homers in June, basically forcing O's manager Buck Showalter to pencil him into the lineup every day. Overall, Mancini is hitting .322/.368/.580 in 60 games.
