Joe Smith tallied his 14th save of the season Saturday in the Angels' 5-2 defeat of the Rangers.

Smith struck out two of the three batters he faced in a perfect ninth inning. He's been fantastic since stepping in permanently as the Angels' closer, now boasting a 2.38 ERA and 0.91 WHIP in 41 2/3 total innings this season. The right-hander should remain a strong fantasy piece in the second half as the Angels continue to click.

Rick Porcello fired seven innings of one-run ball Saturday in the Tigers' 5-1 defeat of the Royals.

It was a terrific bounceback pefromance from Porcello, who was shelled for seven runs on 11 hits last Sunday by the Rays. Porcello scattered six hits Saturday in Kansas City and struck out three. He'll wrap up the first half with a 12-5 record, 3.39 ERA, and 1.18 WHIP. The right-hander is tied for the American League lead in wins.

Fernando Rodney has been added to the American League All-Star roster.

Rodney is replacing Rays ace David Price, who opted out because he will be starting Sunday versus the Blue Jays. Rodney leads the American League with 27 saves and holds a 1.98 ERA on the season.

Kevin Kiermaier went 3-for-4 with three RBI as the Rays routed the Blue Jays 10-3 on Saturday.

Kiermaier hit a two-run single in the bottom of the sixth inning and added a one-run single in the seventh. He also doubled, and is now batting .310 with a .926 OPS in 47 games this season. It's been a surprising few months from the 24-year-old outfielder, who never really had standout minor league numbers. There could be some serious regression in the second half.
Jul 12 - 7:50 PM

Adam Wainwright limited the Brewers to two runs over seven innings Saturday in a 10-2 Cardinals victory.

Wainwright was staked to a massive early lead and went into cruise control, walking none and fanning four. He'll finish the second half of the 2014 regular season with a fantastic 12-4 record, 1.83 ERA, and 0.91 WHIP. The Cardinals are now tied for first place in the National League Central with the Brewers, who have dropped seven straight games.
Jul 12 - 7:34 PM

Chris Johnson homered twice Saturday as the Braves won an 11-6 shootout against the Cubs.

Both starting pitchers were terrible on a day that the flood gates opened early and often at Wrigley Field. Johnson hit a two-run shot off Edwin Jackson in the top of the second inning and then took E-Jax deep again in the top of the fourth. He finished the afternoon with four RBI.
Jul 12 - 7:24 PM

Shane Greene delivered 7 1/3 scoreless innings Saturday in the Yankees' 3-0 blanking of the Orioles.

Greene struck out nine and surrendered only four hits in the dominant outing. He looks to be locked into a rotation spot with the Yankees, but his numbers at Triple-A were never very good and the 25-year-old right-hander is probably due for some regression in the second half.
Jul 12 - 7:13 PM

Addison Reed picked up his 21st save of the season Saturday in the Diamondbacks' 2-0 win over the Giants.

Reed retired all three batters he faced in the bottom of the ninth inning. It was a needed clean outing for the 25-year-old right-hander, who has blown five saves and owns a rough 4.30 ERA in 37 2/3 innings this season.
Jul 12 - 7:01 PM

James Paxton (shoulder) is expected to begin a rehab assignment Thursday at Low-A Everett.

Paxton has been out since early April with a shoulder problem and will likely be asked to make several minor league rehab starts. The 25-year-old left-hander had an outstanding 2.25 ERA, 0.67 WHIP, and 13/2 K/BB ratio over his first 12 innings (two starts) this season and should be a valuable fantasy starter down the stretch.
Jul 12 - 6:27 PM

Jose Abreu slugged his 29th home run of the season Saturday as the White Sox beat the Indians 6-2.

Abreu hit his two-run shot off Indians starter Zach McAllister in the top of the fourth inning. The sensational rookie slugger is on pace for 49 home runs and 124 RBI.
Jul 12 - 6:26 PM

Domonic Brown was scratched from Saturday's lineup against the Nationals with an illness.

It's not clear whether he'll be able to return Sunday for the Phillies' final game before the All-Star break. Brown is batting just .225/.277/.328 with six home runs and 46 RBI in 90 games this season.
