Albert Pujols dropped seven pounds over the offseason and told reporters Thursday in Angels camp that his knee and foot are 100 percent healthy.

Pujols is hoping to return with a bang in 2014 after being limited to 99 games last summer due to a partial tear of the plantar fascia in his left foot. The 34-year-old first baseman has batted just .275/.338/.485 through his first two seasons with the Angels. He was a .328/.420/.617 hitter in 11 seasons with the Cardinals. Anaheim still owes him $222 million in guaranteed money.

Yangervis Solarte had a monster night at the dish Tuesday in St. Louis, homering and doubling twice as part of a six-RBI showing.

Solarte got the scoring going with a bases-clearing double in the third inning off of Lance Lynn, and he got to Lynn again in the fifth with another RBI double. The infielder capped off his night with a mammoth two-run blast off of Josh Lucas in the eighth that went an estimated 455 feet. Solarte has gone deep in two of his last three contests.

Doug Fister turned back the clock Tuesday, spinning a one-hit complete game in the Red Sox' 9-1 win over the Indians.

Fister entered the night with a 5.56 ERA on the season and was roughed up by the same Indians in his last start. He permitted 11 baserunners over just 4 1/3 frames in that outing last week but yielded only the one hit and a couple walks in an unexpected gem Tuesday, shutting down the Tribe's offense after Francisco Lindor led off the bottom of the first with a home run. It's Fister's first complete game in three seasons. Fister will take on the Orioles at Fenway on Sunday and it's hard to trust him as a fantasy option even after his beauty Tuesday.

Eduardo Nunez launched a three-run home run and a two-RBI double Tuesday against the Indians.

Nunez was hitless in his first three plate appearances of the night, but he saved his best for the later innings with a two-run double off of Carlos Carrasco and a three-run dinger off of Shawn Armstrong. The 30-year-old is now batting .330/.356/.557 across 21 games since joining the Red Sox.

Kelvin Herrera experienced tightness in his right forearm in the ninth inning Tuesday.

Scott Alexander entered in the top of the ninth after Herrera loaded the bases with two outs and the 28-year-old left-hander secured his first career save. If this turns into a DL situation for Herrera, the Royals could turn to former Padres closer Brandon Maurer, though he hasn't been very good since coming over in a July 24 trade. Herrera will be reevaulated by the Royals' medical staff on Wednesday.

Lucas Sims had the best start of his young career Tuesday, spinning six shutout frames in a 4-0 victory over the Mariners.

Sims yielded just two singles and a double on the night, walked two and punched out four batters. The 23-year-old had held his own in the majors before this one, but tonight’s outing was his first quality start since his debut on August 1. The swings and misses Sims got in the minors haven’t translated to this point, as he’s whiffed only 15 in 28 1/3 innings. The good news is he’s walked only eight, as the control improvements he made this year in the minors have carried over. Sims gets the Phillies on the road next.

Jackie Bradley will return to Boston on Wednesday morning for an MRI on his left thumb.

The thumb got bent back awkwardly as Bradley slid into home plate on an Eduardo Nunez two-run double Tuesday night against the Indians. X-rays turned up negative, but there may be some concern about ligament damage. Andrew Benintendi took over in center field on Tuesday, with Chris Young entering to play left.

Jason Kipnis is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his right hamstring Wednesday.

Kipnis has been bothered by right hamstring issues for much of the summer and he left Tuesday night's game against the Red Sox with renewed discomfort. The second baseman could be headed for the disabled list.

An MRI taken Tuesday night on Danny Salazar's right elbow showed no structural damage.

Salazar was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday afternoon and still figures to miss a couple of weeks to let the inflammation in his elbow subside, but he should be an option again for the Indians sometime in September. Salazar had been on a roll before getting torched for six earned runs on 12 hits Sunday in a loss to the Royals.

Kris Bryant suffered a left hand contusion when he was hit by a pitch in the top of the ninth inning Tuesday.

X-rays came back negative, but Bryant had his hand wrapped in the clubhouse after the game and could get the day off Wednesday. He drew a walk, scored a run, and tallied his 56th RBI of the season in Tuesday night's win over the Reds.

Johnny Cueto (forearm) worked three scoreless innings Tuesday with Triple-A Sacramento.

Cueto allowed three hits but issued zero walks and of most importance was that he looked healthy. The right-hander landed on the disabled list July 15 due to multiple blisters on his throwing hand and he was removed from a rehab start July 31 at High-A San Jose after suffering a flexor tendon strain. If everything goes smoothly from here, Cueto could be ready to return to the Giants' rotation around the second week of September.
Aug 22 - 10:57 PM

X-rays turned up negative on Paul Blackburn's right arm.

Blackburn got drilled by a Trey Mancini comebacker in the fourth inning of his start Tuesday night in Baltimore and left the field in serious pain, but it sounds like he could take his next turn. "We dodged a bullet," manager Bob Melvin said after the game. The 23-year-old right-hander had worked four scoreless frames against the Orioles, improving his ERA to 3.22.
