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.

Tyler Moore was 3-for-4 with two doubles and four RBI against the Giants on Saturday.

Moore doubled home a run in the fourth inning before hitting a two-run double in the sixth. He then added an RBI single in the seventh. It was his first three-hit game of the season. The 28-year-old is batting .227/.277/.400 in part-time duty this year.

Stephen Strasburg was forced to leave Saturday's start against the Giants with an apparent oblique injury.

Strasburg came back from the disabled list to throw a pair of gems last week, then hurled 3 2/3 scoreless frames against the Giants on Saturday before the injury bit him. It's unclear how serious the injury is, or how long he may be sidelined, but it's once again terrible news for the Nationals and fantasy owners alike, just as he was starting to roll. The Nats should have an update on his status shortly.

Miguel Cabrera is expected to be sidelined for six weeks with a grade 3 left calf strain.

The Tigers had hoped that he would be ready to return shortly after the All-Star break, but it appears that the All-Star slugger will be on the shelf until late August. It will be interesting to see if the Tigers look to acquire a bat to replace Cabrera in the lineup, or if his untimely injury will force Dave Dombrowski to become a seller at the trade deadline.

Jedd Gyorko hit a game-tying homer in the seventh inning and a go-ahead RBI single in the ninth to help lead the Padres to a 2-1 win over the Cardinals on Friday.

Gyorko was just called up on June 30 to help fill in for the injured Cory Spangenberg (knee). He showed his worth on Friday when he homered off of the ever-dominant Michael Wacha in the seventh inning to tie the game at 1-1. He then helped ensure things wouldn't move to extras when he singled home Yangervis Solarte in the ninth inning to put the Padres up 2-1. Gyorko hit .283/.368/.500 with four home runs in 15 games for Triple-A El Paso after being sent down in early June and should see his share of playing time in the near future, though there's little to love on the fantasy front here.

Michael Wacha continued to throw like one of the best pitchers in baseball on Friday, holding the Padres to just one run over seven innings in a 2-1 loss.

Wacha struck out six and walked just one. Only a Jedd Gyorko solo homer in the seventh inning prevented Wacha from the shutout. It also prevented him from picking up his 11th win of the year, as the homer tied the game at 1-1. With a 2.66 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and a 10-3 record, he's a near lock for the All-Star Game and should be in the Cy Young discussion at the end of the season assuming he stays healthy.

Carlos Correa went 3-for-6 with a solo home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 12-8, 10-inning win over the Red Sox.

Correa's homer off Craig Breslow in the eighth inning was the rookie phenom's sixth of the season and his RBI single in the 10th snapped an 8-8 tie. The 20-year-old shortstop has lived up to the hype since his call-up and is currently slashing .300/.320/.570 with six homers and 17 RBI. There are bound to be bumps in the road as major league pitchers make adjustments, but Correa's career is off to a fantastic start.
Jul 4 - 12:17 AM

Brian McCann belted a walkoff three-run home run in the 11th inning on Friday, propelling the Yankees to a 7-5 come-from-behind victory against the Rays.

The Yankees were on the ropes a couple of times in the ballgame but never stopped fighting. They trailed 3-0 heading into the eighth inning where Mark Teixeira connected on a three-run homer to tie the game and force extra innings, then trailed 5-3 in the 11th before McCann's heroic blast against Steve Geltz. It was the veteran backstop's lone hit in five at-bats on the night and he also drew a walk. He has been one of the best offensive catchers in the league this season, slashing a healthy .264/.333/.477 with 13 long balls and 52 RBI.
Jul 3 - 11:55 PM

Carlos Gomez launched a grand slam and finished with five RBI to help down the Reds by a 12-1 score on Friday.

Gomez stepped up with the bases loaded and the Brewers up 5-0 in the seventh inning. He promptly unloaded on a Carlos Contreras offering for a grand slam to vanquish any vague hopes of a Reds comeback. In addition to the big slam, Gomez also chipped in with an RBI single to finish 3-for-5 with five total RBI. Overall, he's hitting .271/.314/.427 with six homers, 31 RBI and 36 runs scored. Plus seven steals, though he's also been caught four times.

Rangers designated RHP Neftali Feliz for assignment.

The Rangers needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Matt Harrison who is returning from the disabled list on Saturday, but it seems like Feliz is an odd choice after he fired a pair of scoreless innings on Friday. The 27-year-old should generate interest on waivers.
Jul 3 - 11:39 PM

Erick Aybar had a terrific night at the plate in Friday's 8-2 victory over the Rangers, going 5-for-5 with a double and two RBI.

He also scored a pair of runs in the contest. Aybar capped off the Halos' six-run uprising in the second inning with a two-run single. He has been a very solid and stable source of fantasy production at the shortstop position this season, slashing .274/.315/.336 with 25 RBI.
