Brett Cecil has faced 38 consecutive batters without allowing a base hit, a Blue Jays franchise record.

The blossoming 26-year-old left-hander has an outstanding 1.46 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 42/10 K/BB ratio through 37 innings of relief this year. Cecil came into the 2013 season with a 4.79 career ERA in the big leagues.

Josh Hamilton could be placed back on the disabled list with a strained groin.

It's being called a groin strain, but Rangers manager Jeff Banister admitted that Hamilton's "whole lower half" has been an issue since he went on the disabled list with a strained hamstring at the end of May. The results of an MRI Saturday haven't been revealed yet, but it appears Hamilton could be shut down again. "Obviously, we’ll see where he is throughout the night," Banister said Saturday. "We’ll continue to try to manage how he feels. This is a guy we’d like to have for an extended period of time. I’m trying my best to figure this whole thing out with him and what is best for Josh."

In his return from Tommy John surgery, Patrick Corbin pitched five innings of two-run ball and recorded a win over the Rockies on Saturday.

Corbin allowed eight hits, three for extra bases, but he was able to spread them around enough to leave with a lead. It helped a lot that he walked no one. His fastball was consistently in the low-90s, and 56 of his 76 pitches were strikes. Corbin isn't a recommended mixed-league pitcher just yet, but he definitely has the ability. He's well worth the flier in deeper leagues.

Joe Mauer went 4-for-5 with a double and a two-run home run in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Royals.

Did somebody ask for fireworks in Kansas City? Mauer wasted little time putting the Twins on the board this Fourth of July, taking Joe Blanton deep to right after a Brian Dozier single in the first inning and staking his team to a 2-0 lead. Mauer would also double and single in the contest to finish 4-for-5. Despite a relatively light (by his standards) slash-line of .272/.341/.388, Mauer's been a productive run-producer and has now driven in 43 runs. His career best for RBI in a season was 96 in 2009 and while he's unlikely match that this year, an RBI total in the mid-to-high 80's is within reach at the rate he's currently going.

Zach Greinke continued his run of dominance in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Mets, throwing seven innings of shutout ball while allowing just four hits.

With the win, Greinke improved to 7-2 on the year. He struck out four without walking a batter and now carries a 1.48 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 97/20 K/BB ratio across 115 1/3 innings. There's not much we can say that the numbers don't say themselves. Up next for Greinke's slicing and dicing pleasure, the Philadelphia Phillies.

Carlos Gomez left Saturday's game against the Reds with a left wrist contusion.

He went 0-for-2 with a strikeout before exiting in the sixth inning. His X-rays came back negative and the Brewers are listing him as day-to-day. Gerardo Parra is likely to play center field if Gomez gets the day off on Sunday.
Jul 4 - 10:16 PM

Kris Bryant had a monster game in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Marlins, homering twice and driving in six runs.

Bryant eradicated Marlins starter Jarred Cosart from this earth, hitting a two-run homer in the first inning and following it up with a grand slam in the second to drive Cosart from the mound. This was Bryant's second multi-homer game of the season and he's now socked 12 dingers and driven in 49 runs over 70 games since being called up in late April. The rookie sports a .278/.381/.486 triple-slash and figures to be a front-runner for the NL Rookie of the Year award come the end of the season.

Carlos Gonzalez is not in the Rockies' lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

Patrick Corbin is pitching for Arizona and Gonzalez is batting just .161 against left-handers this year. Drew Stubbs will start in left field and bat sixth. Since blowing up for five hits against San Francisco on June 27, Gonzalez has gone just 3-for-28 with six strikeouts.
Jul 4 - 7:09 PM

Jeff Samardzija pitched brilliantly in a no-decision against the Orioles on Saturday, allowing just one run on three hits over 7 2/3 innings.

The Shark racked up nine strikeouts on the afternoon while issuing a pair of free passes. The only damage against him came on an inherited runner that rode home on Manny Machado's home run after Samardzija had departed. A popular name in trade rumblings, he'll carry a 4.33 ERA and 97/22 K/BB ratio into Thursday's start against the Blue Jays.
Jul 4 - 5:09 PM

Clay Buchholz allowed one run in a complete-game victory over the Astros on Saturday.

It was his ninth career complete game and his first since last August 31. Buchholz went into the top of the ninth with a chance at seventh career shutout, but Luis Valbuena hit a two-out RBI single. He fanned eight and walked none in the victory. Buchholz has been on quite the roll of late, allowing just three earned runs combined over his last four starts. His ERA is down to 3.27 for the year.
Jul 4 - 4:51 PM

David Price racked up seven strikeouts over seven strong innings in Saturday's victory over the Blue Jays.

The All-Star southpaw allowed just one run on eight hits and a walk over his seven frames. The only blemish against him on the afternoon was a solo homer off the bat of Kevin Pillar in the fifth inning. The clear ace of the Tigers staff, and pending free agent, has been terrific again this season, registering a 2.54 ERA and 107/22 K/BB ratio through 117 innings. He'll look to continue that dominance when he takes on the Twins in Minnesota on Thursday.
Jul 4 - 4:33 PM

Bryce Harper went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer, a walk, and two runs scored in Saturday's 9-3 win over the Giants.

Using a special Fourth of July-themed bat, Harper took Madison Bumgarner deep in the first inning. Bumgarner hadn't given up a home run to a left-handed batter in 47 starts. Harper is now up to 25 home runs, which ties him with Cincinnati's Todd Frazier for second in the National League. He owns a ridiculous .344/.470/.719 batting line on the year.
