CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that "teams are starting to emerge" for free agent outfielder Michael Bourn.

Heyman identifies eight different teams -- the Mets, Braves, Rangers, Mariners, Orioles, Cubs, Rays and Dodgers -- that could be looking to make a late run at the best free agent left on the open market. Bourn, 30, batted .274/.348/.391 with nine homers, 57 RBI and 42 stolen bases in 155 games last year for the Braves while playing his usual brand of excellent defense in center field. He'll probably want to sign before mid-February.

Carlos Carrasco was spectacular on Tuesday, tossing nine shutout innings and allowing only one hit, but was left with a no-decision as the Indians needed 12 innings to topple the Angels.

Carrasco has been hot-and-cold throughout the year, but he was very much on point on Tuesday. David Murphy got the only hit off the right-hander with a single to lead off the fifth. The right-hander walked one and struck out seven, lowering his ERA to 3.76 with a 1.09 WHIP and a 147/28 K/BB ratio over 136 1/3 innings. Carrasco will look for similar results his next time out, a home start against the Yankees.

Giovanny Urshela smacked a two-run home run in the 12th inning to break a scoreless tie, allowing the Indians to beat the Angels on Tuesday.

Urshela finished 3-for-5 with a double on the night. The Indians were able to pound out 10 hits and draw three walks, but couldn't capitalize until the 12th. It was a welcome night for Urshela, as he had been held hitless since the fifth inning on July 30. He's batting .247/.283/.367 with four home runs and 12 RBI.

Jon Gray allowed three runs -- two earned -- over four innings in his major league debut on Tuesday.

Taking on the Mariners, Gray struck out four while giving up five hits and two walks. He didn't factor in the decision. The 23-year-old has huge upside but is pitching on a losing team that plays its home games in a hitter's ballpark. Gray will get a chance to pitch in a normal atmosphere when the Rockies travel to face the Mets on Monday.

Ryan Braun reached base four times Tuesday, going 2-for-2 with two walks and two runs scored as the Brewers downed the Padres 4-1.

Braun also stole his 16th base of the season in the game. The outfielder has four doubles in his last three games, and he's scored a run in each of his last five. Braun is now hitting .273/.345/.497 with 19 homers, 63 RBI and 63 runs scored overall.

Chris Bassitt got the win versus the Orioles on Tuesday after firing seven scoreless innings.

The right-hander scattered five hits and two walks while striking out seven. Bassitt has been fantastic since joining the rotation at the end of June, posting a 2.43 ERA with a 26/5 K/BB ratio in six starts spanning 37 innings. Oddly enough, it's his first win. He'll toe the rubber at home against the Astros in his next start.
Aug 5 - 1:01 AM

Prince Fielder hit his 16th home run of the season as the Rangers beat the Astros 4-3 on Tuesday.

Fielder hit nine homers in May but had hit just five since June 1 prior to Tuesday. The solo homer was his only hit in four at-bats. In his comeback season, the first baseman is batting .329/.398/.502 with 62 RBI and 53 runs scored on the year. His .900 OPS is eighth-best in the AL.

Asdrubal Cabrera went 2-for-3 with a home run and three runs scored as the Rays trounced the White Sox 11-3 on Tuesday.

Cabrera hit one of the Rays' four homers on the night, taking reliever Daniel Webb deep in the seventh inning. It was his third consecutive two-hit game and extended his hitting streak to a modest eight games. Cabrera has raised his average 21 points in that span, and he's now hitting .241/.294/.390 with seven homers on the season.
Aug 5 - 12:18 AM

Richie Shaffer hit his first major league home run in Tuesday's win over the White Sox.

Shaffer took reliever Daniel Webb deep for a solo homer in the seventh inning to get on the board. He also walked and scored another run in the game. It's not surprising that it took Shaffer just two games to find the seats, as he hit 16 homers in 55 games at Triple-A this year before being promoted. The homer certainly won't be the last for the former first-round pick.
Aug 5 - 12:11 AM

Matt Duffy went 4-for-5 with an RBI double, a run scored and a stolen base as the Giants topped the Braves 8-3 on Tuesday.

Duffy had three singles to go with his RBI double, and the steal was his fifth of the year. The infielder hasn't had back-to-back hitless games since July 2-3, and Tuesday's outburst has his line up to .309/.346/.465. He'll have some stiff competition, but Duffy is square in the middle of the Rookie of the Year race in the National League.

Maikel Franco hit a grand slam in the seventh inning, helping the Phillies fend off the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Franco, who finished 1-for-4, made the Dodgers pay for some erratic pitching in the seventh when he ripped a Joel Peralta pitch into the stands in left field for a tie-breaking grand slam, putting the Phillies up 5-1. Franco is on a six-game hitting streak, batting .282/.339/.491 overall with 12 home runs and 44 RBI. If he can keep it up, he'll be in the conversation for the NL Rookie of the Year Award at the end of the season.
