Twins acquired OF Alex Presley and a player to be named later or cash from the Pirates for 1B Justin Morneau.

Presley will get significant playing time with the Twins in September and audition for a starting role in 2014. He's batting .264/.274/.389 with two home runs over 29 games this season, but hit .298/.372/.427 at the Triple-A level. It's an underwhelming return for Morneau. Presley's upside is likely as a fourth outfielder. He's doubtful to hold any fantasy value.

Rene Rivera went 2-for-5 with two home runs and three total RBI in Sunday's 8-2 win over the Giants.

With the Mets already up 1-0, Rivera bumped the lead to 3-0 with a two-run homer off Matt Moore in the second inning. He would add a solo shot in the fourth. The light-hitting backup catcher is slashing .268/.305/.423 with five homers and 19 RBI in 123 at-bats this season.

Ervin Santana mowed down the Indians over six scoreless frames Sunday in the Twins’ 4-0 victory.

The Indians actually managed nine hits off Santana but most of them were singles and they couldn’t do much with runners in scoring position (1-for-8). Santana fanned seven without allowing a walk while throwing 70 of his 108 pitches for strikes. Sunday’s win was Santana’s 10th of the year, placing him third in the majors behind Jason Vargas and Clayton Kershaw, who both have 11. Santana will go head-to-head with Vargas next Friday at Kansas City.

Michael Taylor launched his 11th homer Sunday in the Nationals’ 6-2 loss to the Reds.

His two-run shot off Scott Feldman accounted for Washington's only runs on Sunday. Taylor has been on a tear, providing five homers and 10 RBI over his last nine games. He should easily eclipse his career-high of 14 round-trippers, which he set back in 2015.

Scooter Gennett went ballistic in Sunday’s 6-2 victory over the Nationals, leading the Reds with four hits including his 11th home run of the season.

What a day for Gennett. He brought home Billy Hamilton on an RBI single in the first inning before clobbering a solo home run off Tanner Roark an inning later. Gennett has batted an astounding .474 during his four-game hitting streak while raising his season average from .287 to .308. He’s just three homers shy of tying his career-best of 14.

Zach Davies spun seven shutout innings Sunday in the Brewers’ victory over Atlanta.

Davies was pitching to contact—he didn’t strike anyone out—but he only gave up four hits and was extremely efficient over his 98-pitch outing. He got stronger as the game went on, allowing just two base runners after the second inning. Davies leads Milwaukee with eight victories this year despite a sluggish 4.96 ERA. He’ll look for win No. 9 Saturday against Miami.

Keon Broxton clobbered another homer as part of a three-hit, three-RBI afternoon Sunday in the Brewers’ win over the Braves.

Broxton also stole his 13th base of the season. His home run was a 366-foot solo shot off Julio Teheran in the second inning. Broxton was struggling for a while but the threat of top prospect Lewis Brinson seems to have lit a fire under him. Seven of Broxton’s 13 homers this year have come over his 15 games.
Jun 25 - 6:12 PM

Jose Bautista went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and four total RBI in Sunday's 8-2 win over the Royals.

The Royals held a 2-0 lead after four innings before Bautista evened up the score with his two-run dinger off Jason Hammel in the top of the fifth. The pull-shot to left was a no-doubter which traveled an estimated 451 feet. One inning later, he would draw a bases-loaded walk to give the Blue Jays a 3-2 lead. Bautista then capped off his nice day at the office with an RBI single in the seventh inning. For the season as a whole, the veteran slugger is hitting .233/.346/.419 with 13 homers and 35 RBI through 274 at-bats. He has turned in multi-hit efforts in three of his last four games.

Sonny Gray was terrific in Sunday's victory over the White Sox, allowing just two runs (one earned) on four hits over his seven frames.

Gray racked up seven strikeouts on the afternoon while walking only one. He gave up a solo homer to Adam Engel in the third inning, then kept the White Sox off the board except for an unearned run that scampered home on a passed ball in the fourth. Now 3-3 on the season, Gray will carry a 4.45 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 65/22 K/BB ratio into Saturday's matchup against the Braves.
Jun 25 - 5:51 PM

Trey Mancini bashed his 14th home run of the season Sunday in the Orioles’ victory over the Rays.

He ended Jake Odorizzi’s outing by belting a one-out solo shot in the sixth inning. That would be his only hit of the afternoon. The 25-year-old has caught fire recently, hitting an absurd .474 during his five-game hitting streak. If he had enough at-bats to qualify, Mancini's .321 average would be fourth-highest in the American League.
Jun 25 - 5:17 PM

Aaron Hicks was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Rangers due to right oblique tightness.

Hicks is scheduled to undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury. This comes on the heels of the outfielder missing a few games due to a sore Achilles. It sounds like it could lead to a trip to the disabled list, but more will be known on Monday.
Jun 25 - 4:23 PM

Addison Russell departed Sunday's game versus the Marlins with right shoulder discomfort.

It's something that's been a recurring ailment for him this season. Consider Russell day-to-day.
