Matt Carpenter is not in the Cardinals' lineup Saturday against the Athletics.

Carpenter is just getting a breather. Brandon Moss will handle first base in his absence and bat third against A's right-hander Zach Neal. Carpenter enjoyed a monster first half but has slumped since the All-Star break (.219 AVG in 73 at-bats).

Gary Sanchez continued his historic home run barrage on Saturday, blasting a solo homer off Dylan Bundy in the fourth inning of a 13-5 win over the Orioles.

With that long ball, Sanchez is now the fastest player in MLB history to reach 11 home runs, accomplishing the feat in only 23 games. He has now hit 10 homers in his last 12 contests and is showing no signs of slowing down. Fantasy owners who scooped him up off of the waiver wire early on are reaping tremendous rewards that could decide the championship in many season-long leagues. He finished the day 1-for-3 plus a pair of walks on Saturday and is now hitting .400/.467/.900 with 11 bombs and 21 RBI on the season.

Chris Davis belted a pair of home runs as the Orioles were crushed by the Yankees on Saturday afternoon.

Davis got the O's on the board with a two-run shot off of Chad Green in the third inning then added on a towering solo shot in the fifth as part of back-to-back jacks with Mark Trumbo. Davis finished the afternoon 2-for-3 and is now hitting .227/.340/.482 with 32 homers and 72 RBI on the season.

Kyle Seager has returned to the Mariners starting lineup for Saturday's game against the White Sox.

Seager missed three straight games after fouling a ball off of his foot on Tuesday, but is ready to go now. The 28-year-old is having a terrific season, slashing .286/.364/.515 with 24 homers and 83 RBI.

Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Ervin Santana has cleared trade waivers.

That makes the right-hander an extremely attractive year chip, and someone who is likely to be on the move in the coming days. Teams searching for rotation upgrades are likely paying close attention to Santana's start against the Jays on Saturday.

Adam Jones (hamstring) is not in the Orioles starting lineup on Saturday.

Jones was forced to exit Friday's game due to a strained left hamstring. He is listed as available on Saturday and isn't expected to require a trip to the disabled list. Julio Borbon is starting in his place in center field and batting ninth for the O's

Evan Gattis slugged a walk-off solo homer in Friday’s 5-4 victory over the Rays.

Carlos Correa led off the bottom of the ninth with a game-tying solo homer off Alex Colome and Gattis followed him with a long home run which hit the train behind the Crawford Boxes in left field. The 30-year-old went 2-for-4 with two RBI on the evening. He has gone deep in back-to-back games and now sits at 21 homers on the year.

Alex Reyes will make his first major league start on Saturday in place of Mike Leake, who is dealing with shingles.

The 21-year-old right-hander has been impressive in his time out of the Cardinals bullpen, posting a 13/4 K/BB ratio over 9 1/3 scoreless innings. He's worthy of a look in all formats for as long as he's in the rotation. He'll get the Athletics at home Saturday in a relatively juicy matchup.
Aug 27 - 12:16 AM

Felix Hernandez gave up just one run in 7 1/3 innings in a 3-1 victory over the White Sox on Friday.

His only mistake was a solo homer by Todd Frazier in the seventh. Hernandez gave up eight hits and walked a pair while striking out five. He loaded the bases in the eighth inning before getting pulled, but fortunately for him, Edwin Diaz was able to put out the fire. While his stuff might not be what it once was, King Felix is now 5-0 since returning from the disabled list last month and has allowed two runs or fewer in four consecutive starts. He’ll bring a 3.14 ERA into a tough matchup against the Rangers on the road next week.
Aug 26 - 11:54 PM

Chris Sale allowed three runs and struck out 14 batters in a complete-game loss to the Mariners on Friday.

He also didn’t walk a batter. It was a good thing the Mariners got to him early, because Sale eventually found his groove and was completely dominant. The southpaw retired the final 16 batters he faced and struck out six batters in a row at one point. This was his fifth complete game of the season. He has now dropped four out of his last five decisions to fall to 15-7 on the year. He’ll bring a 3.14 ERA into a start against the Tigers on the road next week.
Aug 26 - 11:54 PM

Russell Martin went 2-for-5 with a homer and five RBI in Friday’s 15-8 victory over the Twins.

Martin cleared the bases with a double to left-center field in the sixth inning, but he didn’t stop there. He slugged a two-run homer one inning later, which served as the exclamation point on a five-run frame for Toronto. After hitting eight homers through his first 95 games this season, Martin has seven homers in his last 11 games.
