Phil Hughes was outstanding in Saturday's victory over the A's, scattering four hits and a pair of walks over eight scoreless innings and amassing nine strikeouts.

It was far and away the best start of the 2013 season for the 26-year-old right-hander, who was in complete command the entire afternoon. He's now fanned nine hitters in each of his last two outings and sports a terrific 34/7 K/BB ratio over 35 innings. He'll look to keep things rolling when he does battle against the Royals in Kansas City on Friday. Grab him now if he's available.

Corey Kluber notched his first career shutout, limiting the Mariners to just three singles over nine innings in a win on Wednesday.

Kluber appeared to have the unfortunate draw of going up against King Felix, but it was the other way around. In his previous start, the talented Indians right-hander allowed only one run to the Royals and followed it up with Wednesday's gem, in which he did not allow a walk and struck out eight. Kluber, now 11-6 with a 2.61 ERA and a 170/33 K/BB ratio, will go for a third consecutive complete game on Monday at home against the Reds.

Brett Lawrie (finger) took batting practice on the field at the Blue Jays' complex in Dunedin, Florida, on Wednesday.

Lawrie also took ground balls during his work on the field, and Jays manager John Gibbons said Lawrie may be ready to begin a rehab assignment by this weekend. It's a nice development for the infielder, who was believed to still be a few weeks away from returning. He could rejoin the club in early August after a short rehab assignment if things continue to progress.

James Paxton (lat) threw a 45-pitch bullpen session Wednesday and is on track to rejoin the Mariners rotation on Saturday.

"I was throwing all my pitches where I wanted to throw them today, my mechanics felt smooth, everything was coming out at the right time. It felt good," Paxton said after the session. The left-hander hasn't pitched since April 8 due to a strained lat. He may have some rust early, but Paxton was pitching well early and could be a valuable contributor for the M's down the stretch.

A source tells Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star that the Royals aren't close to a deal for Emilio Bonifacio.

Bonifacio was on hug watch after his name was absent from a delayed Cubs starting lineup, and the Royals were reported as his expected destination. It still could happen, but right now there doesn't seem to be a ton of fire there. Bonifacio and his .279/.318/.373 line remain likely to be moved before Thursday's non-waiver trade deadline.

Pablo Sandoval went 2-for-3 with an RBI and two runs scored as the Giants topped the Pirates 7-5 on Wednesday.

The Giants banged out 12 hits in the game, all singles. Sandoval drove in a run, his 45th RBI of the season, with a hit in the eighth inning. The RBI and runs scored were his first in seven games, and he's without an extra-base hit in that span. The third baseman is hitting .277/.326/.425 overall.

A source tells FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal that the Royals, Pirates, Marlins "and others" are in on Ian Kennedy.

Rosenthal also notes the right-hander isn't a certainty to be dealt at the deadline. The Padres would have incentive to hold onto him, as Kennedy still has another year of arbitration before becoming a free agent. Still, he's having a great year and the Padres would likely be better dealing him for players who will be peaking closer to when they're ready to contend. Stay tuned.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports the Blue Jays are looking at Asdrubal Cabrera to fill their second base vacancy.

The Jays have a need but don't have much payroll flexibility, making Cabrera and his expiring contract a fit. FOX Sports' Jon Morosi also mentioned the Giants as having interest in Cabrera, presumably to play the keystone as well. The "perception" around baseball, per ESPN's Buster Olney, is that the Indians are prepared to move Cabrera before the deadline.

Carlos Gonzalez (ankle, knee) is out of the Rockies' starting lineup Wednesday against the Cubs.

CarGo was limping around the visitors clubhouse at Wrigley Field before Wednesday night's game. He rolled his ankle on Saturday and also has some left knee soreness.

Cubs acquired LHP Felix Doubront from the Cubs for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Doubront posted a rough 6.07 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 59 1/3 innings this season for Boston and asked for a trade request when the Red Sox pulled him from the rotation. He has good raw stuff and should get a chance to start in Chicago, but the lefty remains a poor fantasy bet.

Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak told Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he was never close to trading outfielder Oscar Taveras.

Taveras was floated as a possible centerpiece for trades involving players like David Price and Jon Lester, but the Cardinals got Justin Masterson from the Indians on Wednesday afternoon for outfield prospect James Ramsey and appear to be done dealing. According to Miklasz, the Cards' GM was "amused by the speculation that had him moving Taveras." Now if only manager Mike Matheny would play the ultra-talented 21-year-old on a regular basis.
Jul 30 - 5:40 PM

Dallas Keuchel tossed his fourth complete game of the season in Wednesday's 8-1 rout of the A's.

Keuchel was fantastic, allowing only four hits (and one run) over his nine frames. The only run that Oakland scored was on a Josh Donaldson solo homer in the top of the second inning. Keuchel struck out five and now boasts a 2.97 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 104/33 K/BB ratio through 136 1/3 innings this season. The Orioles have expressed interest in acquiring him before Thursday's July 31 trade deadline, but Houston seems likely to keep the blossoming 26-year-old southpaw.
