Astros owner Jim Crane confirmed Tuesday that his team has interest in right-hander Masahiro Tanaka.

But it's difficult to envision Houston out-bidding clubs like the Yankees, Dodgers, Cubs and Diamondbacks for the 25-year-old starter's services. The White Sox and Mariners are also thought to have interest in Tanaka, and the Blue Jays could be looming as a darkhorse. Tanaka's signing deadline is this Friday (January 24) at 5 p.m. ET. He's likely to command more than $120 million on his first major league contract.

Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports that Homer Bailey is dealing with right biceps tendinitis.

Bailey left Sunday's debacle of a start after just one inning, and now we know it wasn't just ineffectiveness that led to the early hook. The good news is that his elbow feels fine, though the Reds may opt to skip his next start just to err on the side of caution.

Joe Panik crushed a pair of home runs and drove home four as the Giants routed the Braves 13-4 in San Francisco on Sunday afternoon.

Panik gave the Giants the lead with a solo shot off of Braves starter Aaron Blair in the second inning, then increased that advantage with a towering two-run drive his next trip to the plate. He finished the day 3-for-4 and is now slashing .251/.329/.407 with 10 long balls and 52 RBI on the season.

Nolan Arenado was perfect in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Nationals, finishing 4-for-4 with a two-run home run and three total RBI.

Arenado opened his immaculate afternoon with an RBI single in the first inning. He would crunch a two-run homer in the third. The star third baseman finished a double shy of the cycle. For the 2016 campaign as a whole, he is hitting a beautiful .291/.361/.576 with 35 homers and 111 RBI over 495 at-bats. On the micro level, he has homered in five of his last 10 games.

Derek Holland hurled six innings of one-run ball Sunday in the Rangers' 2-1 defeat of the Indians.

The one run he gave up came on a Jason Kipnis RBI single in the top of the sixth inning. Holland was otherwise excellent, yielding only four total hits -- all singles -- while walking none and whiffing five. The left-hander has put together two very good pitching lines since returning August 23 from a two-month shoulder injury. A start at home against the Astros is next.

Chris Archer struck out 10 batters over seven innings Sunday in the Rays' 10-4 rout of the Astros.

Archer was charged with three earned runs, but they came on just four hits and two walks. It was his first double-digit strikeout game since July 20. Archer, 27, now stands 8-17 with a 4.10 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 202/60 K/BB ratio in 169 innings this season. A start at home against the Blue Jays is next.

Khris Davis slugged his 34th home run of the year Sunday in the Athletics' 7-4 victory at St. Louis.

It was a two-run shot in the top of the first inning that set the tone for the afternoon. Davis later drew a walk and scored his second run of the game on a three-run shot from Stephen Vogt. The 28-year-old outfielder is setting himself up for a nice payday in his first turn through salary arbitration this winter.

Tony Watson notched his 10th save Sunday in the Pirates' 3-1 defeat of the Brewers.

That concluded a big four-game sweep for the Bucs, who are very much alive in the National League Wild Card race despite selling off veteran closer Mark Melancon (and starter Francisco Liriano) at the August 1 trade deadline. Watson has converted 10 straight saves this month since Melancon's departure. The lefty has a 2.57 ERA for the year.
Aug 28 - 4:56 PM

Kevin Gausman was sharp in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Yankees, striking out nine over seven shutout innings.

Gausman wasn't unhittable -- he scattered seven of them -- but this was perhaps his best overall start of the season. The flame-throwing right-hander did not walk a batter on the afternoon and finished his seven brilliant innings having thrown 108 pitches (75 strikes). Gausman has not allowed a run in either of his past two starts. For the season as a whole, the 25-year-old holds a 3.73 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 140/38 K/BB ratio over 140 innings. The Yankees will have the displeasure of facing him again in Camden Yards next time he takes the mound.
Aug 28 - 4:55 PM

Carlos Rodon tossed six innings of one-run ball Sunday as the White Sox beat the Mariners 4-1.

Rodon struck out six, issued just one walk, and limited the Mariners to five hits. The one he gave up came on a Robinson Cano solo homer in the top of the sixth inning. Rodon finishes the month of August with a 1.47 ERA in 30 2/3 innings. The young southpaw is finding his groove with a favorable matchup against the Twins coming up next.
Aug 28 - 4:49 PM

Luis Perdomo excelled in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Marlins, tossing a complete game while yielding just one run.

Perdomo walked three against three strikeouts, but he managed to keep the Marlins in check despite the lack of whiffs. The lone run to score on his watch came when Xavier Scruggs picked up a shallow RBI double in the second inning. Otherwise, nothing doing for the fish. This makes two beautiful outings in a row for Perdomo, who fired seven innings of one-run ball against the Diamondbacks last time out. He will try to make it three consecutive gems when he takes his lowering-by-degrees 5.84 ERA and 1.70 WHIP into a road showdown with the Dodgers next time he toes the rubber.
Aug 28 - 4:38 PM

Josh Doladson put on a fireworks show in Sunday's 9-6 win over the Twins, socking a trio of home runs and finishing with four RBI.

Donaldson cracked a solo home run off Kyle Gibson in the third inning. He would homer again -- this time a two-run shot -- in the seventh inning before polishing off his impressive power showing with a final solo tater in the eighth. The reigning AL MVP has now cracked 33 home runs and driven in 91. He can pair those counting stats with a strong .294/.407/.578 triple-slash over 476 at-bats.
