Nationals pitching coach Steve McCatty said Wednesday that Rafael Soriano has a "little tweak in his leg."

That might help explain why Soriano has had such trouble in his last two relief appearances. It's not believed to be a serious injury, but the 33-year-old right-hander may be given a few days off. Which is even more reason to go grab Nationals setup man Drew Storen.

Matt Carpenter went 2-for-3 with a home run and two runs scored to help the Cardinals top the Royals 8-4 on Tuesday.

Carpenter took Royals starter Yordano Ventura deep in the fifth inning for a solo shot, his 14th of the year. The dinger vaulted Carpenter to the top of the slugging percentage leaderboard in the National League, a distinction few would guess belongs to the 30-year-old. It's been that kind of year for Carpenter, whose 54 runs scored are second-most in the NL and who also leads the league with a 1.012 OPS. Carpenter is hitting .300/.420/.592 with 49 RBI overall.

Lorenzo Cain was diagnosed with a strained hamstring that forced his early exit from Tuesday's game.

He'll be re-evaluated by team doctors on Wednesday before determining a course of action. Even if he avoids a trip to the disabled list, expect him to miss a game or two. Look for an update after Wednesday's exam.

Zack Greinke was forced to leave Tuesday's start against the Phillies due to tightness in his left oblique.

Oblique injuries can be tricky and tend to linger, so it's hard to speculate how much time, if any, Greinke could miss. It's likely that the team could play it safe and skip a start or two heading into the All-Star break.

Brian Dozier went 3-for-4 with two home runs and all four RBI as the Twins blanked the White Sox 4-0 on Tuesday.

Dozier now has four homers in his last three games and seven in the month of June, a month in which he's hitting .361 with 19 RBI and 18 runs scored. During a 10-game hitting streak, the 29-year-old has raised his average from .227 to .259. Reports of his death were certainly exaggerated, and Dozier now has 12 home runs on the year to go with that .259/.341/.463 line.

Joc Pederson was removed from Tuesday's game against the Brewers with a right shoulder injury.

Pederson slammed into the outfield wall after making a ridiculous catch to rob Chris Carter of extra bases. The Dodgers should provide an update on his status after he's examined.

Nick Castellanos hit one of three home runs for the Tigers in a seven-run inning in Tuesday's comeback win over the Marlins.

The Tigers entered the bottom of the fifth down 3-0 and were getting dominated by Adam Conley, but Conley suddenly then fell apart. Castellanos followed dingers by Jose Iglesias and Miguel Cabrera with a homer of his own, completing the seven-run frame. The third baseman struggled in the first half of June but is batting .333 over his last 11 games.

Giancarlo Stanton went 3-for-5 with a homer in three RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Tigers.

Stanton got the scoring going in the second inning with a laser over the center field wall to plate two. He drove in another run with a single in the fifth. Stanton's slump looks to be in the rear view mirror, as he's now batting .400 with three longballs over his last 10 contests.
Jun 28 - 10:54 PM

Travis Shaw went 3-for-5 with a home run and five RBI in Tuesday's 8-2 win over the Rays.

Shaw hit a solo home run in the second inning, his eighth homer of the season, added a two-run double in the seventh and a two-RBI single in the ninth to extend the Sox' lead. The home run was the first in a month for Shaw, who has fallen hard off his early-season pace. His numbers have been buoyed by that great start, as Shaw is still batting .273/.338/.455 with 44 RBI and 39 runs scored overall.

Corey Kluber held the Braves to just two runs across eight innings in a 5-3 victory Tuesday.

Kluber was pushed back a day in order to get extra rest following last week's shutout. He came close to another shutout in this one, yielding only a two-out, two-RBI single in the sixth inning. He was at just 87 pitches through eight, but the Indians pinch-hit for him in the top of the ninth and wound up breaking the tie. Kluber will carry a 3.50 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 110/23 K/BB ratio over 110 2/3 frames into this weekend's start in Toronto. The Indians have won 11 in a row.
Jun 28 - 10:40 PM

Lorenzo Cain was lifted from Tuesday's game against the Cardinals with an apparent leg injury.

Cain lunged for first base in an attempt to beat out an infield single and appeared to tweak something. He also had his base hit taken away from him on video review, literally adding insult to injury. He'll get checked out in the clubhouse and the Royals should have an update on his status shortly.
Jun 28 - 10:28 PM

Cole Hamels struck out seven across seven shutout frames in Tuesday's 7-1 victory over the Yankees.

All six base knocks were singles, and Hamels issued only one walk. The veteran left-hander has been on some kind of roll, dropping his ERA from 3.39 to 2.60 over his last five starts. Hamels now sports a nifty 102/38 K/BB ratio over 103 2/3 innings on the season. He'll go up against the Twins in each of his next two outings.
