Mariners recalled RHP Erasmo Ramirez from Low-A Everett.

Ramirez was sent down to Low-A Everett after he was knocked around seven runs over just 4 2/3 innings on July 11 against the Red Sox, but the Mariners just wanted him to stay on his regular turn. He'll return to start Tuesday night against the Indians. The 23-year-old should be relevant in mixed fantasy leagues during the second half.

J.T. Realmuto went 3-for-4 and swatted a pair of two-run home runs to lead his team to a 5-4 win over the Reds on Saturday.

He pulverized rookie starter Robert Stephenson in the second inning and again in the sixth. Justin Bour was aboard both times. Realmuto now has a .305 batting average with 10 home runs and 39 RBI for the season. He's even chipped in five stolen bases for good measure. There are not many fantasy catchers who can consistently contribute that level of goodness. He is already just one longball away from matching the career high he set last year.

Marwin Gonzalez blasted a pinch-hit, three-run bomb in an 8-4 win over the Orioles on Saturday.

He came in to replace Colin Moran in the middle of an at-bat after the young third baseman took a foul ball to the eye and had to be carted off the field in the sixth inning. Gonzalez promptly launched a three-run tater to put his club in the lead to stay. He added a double in his second at-bat. The veteran infielder has been one of the biggest surprises in the game this year. He offers multi-position eligibility in fantasy leagues and is slashing .316/.394/.593 with 18 homers and 58 RBI in 79 games.

Mike Moustakas hit a pair of solo home runs, two of four Royals homers on the night, in a 7-2 win over the White Sox on Saturday.

Moustakas did his work against the Sox bullpen, victimizing David Holmberg and Brad Goldberg for the solo blasts in the sixth and eighth innings, respectively. Don't look now, but the 28-year-old is second in the American League with his 28 homers, and his 62 RBI also rank among the league's best. That's very good news for the impending free agent, who is setting himself up to get paid handsomely this winter.

Wilmer Flores hit a walk-off, solo home run in the ninth inning Saturday to complete the Mets' comeback in a 6-5 win over the Athletics.

The Mets once trailed 5-0 in the game, but the battled against A's starter Sean Manaea to close the gap and got to the Athletics' bullpen late. That included Flores, who deposited a Simon Castro fastball into the left field seats to send the fans home happy. Flores finished 2-for-5 with a double and two runs scored in the game. The 25-year-old infielder doesn't have a permanent home but has been serviceable when called upon, batting .284/.312/.473 in 222 at-bats this year.

Jarrod Dyson left Saturday's game against the Yankees after crashing into the center field wall.

Dyson went hard into the wall while trying to reel in a fifth-inning triple hit by Garrett Cooper. He finished out the inning after being checked on by trainers but was later replaced by Guillermo Heredia. Dyson was hitless in two at-bats before exiting. The 32-year-old has hit a sluggish .236 this year but ranks second in the American League with 22 steals.

Francisco Lindor hit his first career walk-off homer in the 10th inning Saturday to give the Indians a 2-1 win over the Blue Jays.

Lindor left little doubt, turning on a Danny Barnes offering and slamming it deep into the Cleveland night. The homer was a big one for the 23-year-old, who'd gone since June 21 without a dinger after he hit 12 in the season's first two months. Lindor has 15 homers overall to go with a .257/.318/.462 line in 93 games overall.

Ryan Braun went 3-for-3 with a home run, a stolen base, four RBI and three runs scored in a wild 9-8 win over the Phillies on Saturday.

He laced a two-run double in the third inning, and topped that with a two-run bomb off starter Jeremy Hellickson in the fifth. In the seventh inning he walked, stole second base and scored as the Phillies made two errors on the play. Braun is always nursing multiple injuries and misses a lot of games but is one of the most productive players in the game when he is on the field. He is slashing .271/.353/.560 with 12 homers, 31 RBI and six stolen bases in only 47 games.

According to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News, the Cubs may have more interest in acquiring Jonathan Lucroy than Yu Darvish.

Per Grant, the Cubs have made "at least a passing call" on Darvish but Lucroy is who they really have their eye on. The Cubs traded backup catcher Miguel Montero after his criticism of Jake Arrieta earlier this month, forcing Willson Contreras into a near-everyday role. Lucroy has struggled this year (.244 AVG with four homers in 266 at-bats) but has a proven track record and has plenty of experience playing in the NL Central after spending the first six-and-a-half years of his career with Milwaukee. His contract is up after this year, so he'd only be a rental.

Danny Salazar was stellar in his return from the disabled list Saturday, holding the Blue Jays to a solitary hit over seven scoreless innings.

Where has this Danny Salazar been all year? The right-hander was reminiscent of his 2016 form, striking out eight and not walking a batter over his seven shutout frames. The only travesty is that the usually-steady Andrew Miller allowed a run in relief, denying Salazar a win for his efforts. Still, it was a very encouraging return from the disabled list for the 27-year-old, who has been out since June 6 with shoulder troubles. He's not out of the woods yet, but another good turn for Salazar Thursday against the Angels would be promising.

Elvis Andrus went 3-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored as the Rangers came back to beat the Rays 4-3 on Saturday.

Andrus hit a solo homer in the fourth inning to get the Rangers on the board, and he was in the middle of the three-run sixth inning that saw the Rangers take the lead. It's the second straight game in which the shortstop has homered among three hits, after collecting just two hits in his first 29 at-bats of the second half. Andrus is batting .291/.333/.466 with an already career-best 13 homers, 53 RBI, 58 runs scored and 20 steals to date.

Odubel Herrera went 4-for-4 with a solo home run and scored three runs in a loss to the Brewers on Saturday.

He went deep against starter Brent Suter in the fifth inning. He added two doubles and a single in the ballgame. Herrera struggled badly in the first months of the season but has turned things around in recent weeks. He is batting .270/.312/.437 with nine homers, 35 RBI and five stolen bases. He is unlikely to come anywhere close to the 25 bags he swiped a year ago.
