Frank Herrmann underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow on Wednesday and will miss the entire 2013 season.

It's a tough blow for Herrmann, who made 15 relief appearances with the Indians last season. The 28-year-old will now have to set his sights on getting ready for 2014.

Eric Hosmer (hand) could be sidelined for up to six weeks.

The initial timetable floated was four weeks, but apparently Hosmer could be on the shelf even longer than that. The first baseman is dealing with a stress fracture in his right hand, an ailment that he originally suffered over a week ago but played with after initial X-rays didn't find anything. The Royals will go with a combination of Billy Butler and Raul Ibanez at first base while Hosmer is sidelined.

Tyler Skaggs (forearm) is expected to be placed on the disabled list.

Skaggs' elbow ligament is fine and the Angels are confident his forearm tightness is a minor issues, but they don't want to take any chances. He'll undergo an MRI Friday before the Halos officially make a decision. "The doctor said the UCL [ulnar collateral ligament] is fine," Skaggs said. "At the moment, it’s not looking bad. I have full range of motion, and the tests went well. We’ll see tomorrow, though. It’s not feeling too bad right now."

Jason Heyward (back) is hoping to return to the Braves' lineup on Saturday.

Heyward has sat out three straight games with a sore back, but he started to feel some relief on Thursday. He'll hope to play in the final two games of the weekend series in San Diego.

Clayton Kershaw dazzled again in Thursday's victory over the Braves, racking up nine strikeouts and allowing only one run in a 2-1 complete-game victory.

Kershaw walked none and allowed nine hits in his 10th straight victory -- his first regular season win over the Braves, the only NL team he'd never vanquished in the regular season -- and the Dodgers' sixth consecutive win. He's allowed only nine runs in 86 innings over his last 11 starts. Having improved to 13-2 with a 1.71 ERA, Kershaw hosts the crosstown Angels on Tuesday.

Albert Pujols broke a 0-0 tie in the 13th inning with an RBI single, finishing 2-for-6 overall in Thursday's win over the Orioles.

After the Angels had Kole Calhoun and Mike Trout reach base with a walk and a single, respectively, Pujols ended 12 innings of offensive futility with a single up the middle to score Calhoun. Stunningly, it was Pujols' first RBI since July 23. The 34-year-old has a fine .274/.324/.471 slash line with 20 home runs and 67 RBI on the season.

Ben Revere finished with four hits and a stolen base in six at-bats as the Phillies handily defeated the Nationals on Thursday.

Thursday's game didn't start off so well, as Cliff Lee quickly exited with an injury, but Revere did his best out of the lead-off spot to ensure a victory. It's Revere's third four-hit game of the season, and the stolen base brings him up to 30 on the season in 34 opportunities. Acknowledging his total lack of power, Revere has done his job at the plate thus far, slashing .306/.326/.366.

Phillies placed LHP Cliff Lee on the 15-day disabled list with a left flexor pronator strain.

It's an aggravation of the injury that sidelined him for two months earlier this season. Lee might require surgery this time around, though that won't be known until he's examined Saturday. Either way, he's likely done for the season. The veteran lefty is owed approximately $45.8 million through the end of next year.

Nolan Reimold hit two solo home runs on Thursday, including a go-ahead shot in the ninth inning to help the Blue Jays edge out the Astros.

The two homers were his only successes in four at-bats, but they were big successes. His first occurred in the fifth off of starter Jake Buchanan, and his second came against reliever Chad Qualls to break a 5-5 tie in the ninth. Reimold recently returned from a calf injury and hasn't played much since joining the Jays earlier this season. In 19 plate appearances with the Jays, he has the pair of homers along with three doubles and five RBI.
Jul 31 - 11:05 PM

Fernando Rodney picked up save number 30, preserving the Mariners' one-run lead in the ninth inning in Thursday's win against the Indians.

Rodney allowed a two-out single, but was able to strike out Lonnie Chisenhall to end the minor threat. The veteran is 30-for-33 in save chances with a 2.06 ERA, a 1.17 WHIP, and a 50/17 K/BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings. Rodney's 30 saves are fifth-best in baseball and tops in the American League.
Jul 31 - 10:50 PM

Johnny Cueto hung in tough in a low-scoring game against the Marlins on Thursday, limiting the opposition to one run over seven innings en route to his 12th win in the Reds' 3-1 victory.

Cueto was on the hook for a loss going into the seventh inning, but a fielding error by Jordany Valdespin opened up an opportunity for the Reds to tie the game and then take the lead. Cueto allowed just four hits and a walk while striking out nine. He now sports a 2.05 ERA, a 0.92 WHIP, and a 166/43 K/BB ratio. Cueto will take on the Indians in a road start next Tuesday.
Jul 31 - 10:15 PM

Jason Vargas (appendectomy) will rejoin the Royals' rotation on Saturday in Oakland.

Vargas threw 60 pitches in a four-inning simulated game Tuesday, clearing the way for his return. The lefty boasts a 3.31 ERA for the Royals this season but makes for a sketchy fantasy play Saturday given that he'll surely be on a pitch count and will be facing a difficult lineup.
