An MRI on Brandon Beachy's elbow taken Saturday showed no structural damage.

Beachy was scratched from his scheduled start against the Mets with tenderness, but the MRI showed only fluid and no damage to the elbow itself. That's good news, as it just requires rest. The Braves aren't hurting for a starter at the moment, so they'll give Beachy all the time he needs as he continues to work his way back from last year's Tommy John surgery.

Ian Kinsler went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI as the Tigers downed the Royals 6-5 on Tuesday.

Kinsler knocked an RBI single in the fourth inning before delivering a big two-run blast in the seventh. The homer, his 10th of the season, ended up being the difference in the game. It hasn't been a great year for the Tigers as a whole but the 33-year-old is doing his part, batting .306/.357/.452 with 64 RBI, 84 runs scored and eight steals through 129 games.

Alex Gordon went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in his return to action against the Tigers on Tuesday.

Gordon wasted no time finding ways to contribute, lifting an RBI sacrifice fly in his first at-bat before doubling and scoring in the seventh. The 31-year-old was enjoying another fine season at the plate before a groin strain stole nearly two months from him. Now healthy, Gordon will carry a .284/.396/.464 line into the season's final month.

Scott Feldman (shoulder) will undergo an MRI on Wednesday.

Feldman revealed after Tuesday's start that his shoulder discomfort gradually built up during the game before it finally forced him to exit in the third. The Astros are currently rolling with a six-man rotation, but it looks like they might be forced to go back to a traditional five-man set.

Glen Perkins returned to the closer role on Tuesday, allowing a run on three hits but earning the save in the Twins' 8-6 win over the White Sox.

It wasn't a smooth return to the ninth inning by any means, but the left-hander was still able to get the job done after back issues forced him out of the role last week. With Perkins taking over as closer, Kevin Jepsen returned to a setup role. Perkins now has 32 saves with a 2.68 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 46/8 K/BB ratio in 50 1/3 innings this year.

Jean Segura went 2-for-4 with three RBI as the Brewers bested the Pirates 7-4 on Tuesday.

Segura had an RBI infield single in the first inning before contributing a big two-run single in the eighth. It was the first time Segura has had three RBI in a game since April 27. The shortstop is a better fantasy player than he is in real life, hitting .264/.288/.329 with four homers, 40 RBI, 43 runs scored and 20 stolen bases on the season.

Kyle Schwarber's two-run home run in the seventh inning was the deciding factor in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

The slugger put the Cubs ahead 5-4 when he sent a Burke Badenhop offering over the fence in left-center. Schwarber finished 2-for-3 with a walk and three runs scored on the night. He's batting .270/.365/.552 with 13 home runs, 38 RBI, and 41 runs scored in 189 plate appearances in his rookie season.

Darin Ruf went 3-for-5 with a home run and six RBI as the Phillies doubled up the Mets 14-8 on Tuesday.

Ruf extended the Phillies' lead to 5-0 in the third inning with a three-run home run to left field off of Jon Niese. He added an RBI single in the fifth, and a two-run single in the sixth. The six RBI mark a career-high for Ruf, as he hadn't even knocked in four in a game before. The 1B/OF has otherwise not done much at the plate, batting .245/.292/.406 with seven home runs and 26 RBI in 209 plate appearances.

Edwin Encarnacion's hitting streak ended at 26 games as he went 0-for-2 with a walk and a sacrifice fly in Tuesday's win against the Orioles.

Encarnacion put the Jays up 1-0 in the first inning with a sacrifice fly and drew a walk in the third inning but was stranded. He lined out to shortstop and fouled out to first base in his other two attempts. The 32-year-old is hitting .273/.361/.545 with 30 home runs and 92 RBI this season.

Ryan Goins belted a walk-off two-run home run in the 10th inning as the Blue Jays overcame the Indians on Tuesday.

Closer Roberto Osuna blew the save in the ninth inning, but Goins picked up his teammate. The second baseman sent a Bryan Shaw offering over the fence in right field to break a 3-3 tie and send the Jays home happy. He finished 1-for-3 with a walk on the evening. Goins is typically not one for power hitting, as he's batting .246/.318/.357 with five home runs and 37 RBI on the year.
Sep 1 - 10:32 PM

Drew Smyly dominated the Orioles in Tuesday's win, striking out 10 across seven scoreless innings.

Smyly scattered four hits and a walk along with the 10 strikeouts in a dominating performance -- his best of the season. His results have been mixed in four starts since coming off of the disabled list, but overall has a 3.11 ERA with a 1.14 WHIP and a 42/8 K/BB ratio over 37 2/3 innings. Smyly will look to keep it going next week in Detroit against the Tigers.
Sep 1 - 10:25 PM

J.P. Arencibia had himself a ballgame, going 3-for-4 with a home run and six RBI in Tuesday's rout of the Orioles.

Oddly enough, six RBI isn't even a career-high for Arencibia. He knocked in seven last season for the Rangers and six back in 2012 for the Blue Jays. The catcher plated two with a single in the fourth inning, another two with another single in the fifth, then tacked on a two-run home run in the seventh. Arencibia had singled twice in nine at-bats across five games in the big leagues entering the night. With Curt Casali sidelined, he will start every two or three days along with Rene Rivera.
