Indians designated RHP Carlos Carrasco for assignment.

It's a procedural move, as he will clear optional waivers. Carrasco gets the boot after being rocked for seven runs -- six earned -- in 3 1/3 innings Saturday. The righty has pitched really well at Columbus this season but holds a 9.10 ERA and 2.09 WHIP during his chances with the big club.

Kyle Gibson has been scratched from Wednesday's scheduled start against the Indians due to a stiff back.

He should be fine for his next outing or maybe even later in the week, but the Twins wanted to play it safe. Anthony Swarzak will make a spot start in Gibson's place.

Jonathan Lucroy's second home run of the game also served to give the Brewers a 4-3, walk-off victory over the Reds on Tuesday.

Lucroy homered off Reds starter Homer Bailey in the sixth inning, and leading off the ninth he took reliever Sam LeCure out to send the fans home happy. The homers were his first since July 4, also against the Reds. The All-Star catcher has now got 11 home runs to go with a .310/.381/.500 line on the year.

Adam Wainwright was lit up for six earned runs in 4 2/3 innings Tuesday in a loss to the Rays.

Wainwright had an abnormal amount of rest after pitching one inning in last week's 2014 MLB All-Star Game and looked off at home versus Tampa Bay, issuing four walks and surrendering six hits in the rough outing. He should be able to bounce back next week in San Diego. The ace right-hander still boasts a 2.02 ERA and 0.95 WHIP on the season.

Anthony Rizzo continued his hot hitting on Tuesday, blasting two home runs in the Cubs' 6-0 win over the Padres.

Rizzo hit solo shots in the third and seventh innings, giving him 25 on the year. That's now the most in the National League, and what's more, he's hit five in the team's four games since the All-Star break. Rizzo won the Final Vote in the NL, and he's proving all his backers right with his strong start to the second half.

Gregory Polanco drove in three of the Pirates' 12 runs in a slugfest win over the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Polanco belted a solo home run in the third inning and singled in two runs in the sixth. The 22-year-old rookie has been mired in a slump, but the Pirates certainly hope Tuesday's effort is the slump-buster. Polanco owns a .253/.339/.349 slash line with four home runs, 17 RBI, and six stolen bases.

Donovan Solano reached base in all five plate appearances in Tuesday's win over the Braves, drawing a walk, hitting a double, and tallying three singles.

It's the first four-hit game of Solano's career. The Marlins could only bring him around to score once, however. Solano hasn't had much to write home about at the plate otherwise, as his slash line has improved to a still-paltry .261/.309/.322 with one home run and 12 RBI in 126 plate appearances.

Jose Reyes stole a base, homered, and doubled in a run in five at-bats as the Jays slugged their way to a win against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

For Reyes, the two extra-base hits equaled his total over the previous two weeks. His solo shot in the sixth inning off of Jake Peavy gave the Jays a 2-0 lead. He added some insurance in the eighth with an RBI double to make it 7-1. The shortstop is now sporting a .276/.326/.420 slash line with eight home runs, 32 RBI, and 19 stolen bases.

Manny Machado was scratched from Tuesday's lineup with lower back tightness.

It's probably safe to call him day-to-day, but the Orioles don't want to take any chances with their stud young third baseman. Machado was replaced at third base by Ryan Flaherty.

ESPN's Jim Bowden reports that the Reds and Phillies "continue trade talks" involving Marlon Byrd.

Byrd has been linked to the Reds, Royals and Mariners this month and he's a good bet to be traded. The veteran outfielder has proved this year that his power outburst in 2013 was no fluke, hitting 19 homers over 98 games. He's making $8 million this season and in 2015 and has an $8 million club/vesting option for 2016.
Jul 22 - 10:15 PM

Scooter Gennett left Tuesday's game against the Reds with right quad tightness.

It's not clear how Gennett was injured. He was hitless in two at-bats before being replaced by Rickie Weeks in the fifth inning. The Brewers should provide more clarity on Gennett's status after the game.
Jul 22 - 9:26 PM

Pedro Alvarez exited Tuesday's game against the Dodgers with left knee discomfort.

It's not clear when Alvarez was injured, nor is it clear how long he might be out, but the Pirates should provide an update after the game. The third baseman had a double in two at-bats and committed his league-leading 22nd error before leaving.
