Justin Ruggiano homered and drove home three runs, powering the Cubs to a 10-8 victory over the Brewers in Cactus League action on Sunday.

The 31-year-old outfielder finished the day 3-for-3 and is now hitting an impressive .583 (7-for-12) with two homers and seven RBI on the spring season. He's likely to hit in the middle of the Cubs lineup, and while his batting average will be a detriment, his nice blend of power and speed should give him significant mixed league value.

Yovani Gallardo extended his scoreless innings streak to 29 1/3 with another six shutout frames against the Orioles in a no-decision on Thursday.

The right-hander was once again superb, scattering just two hits and three walks on the evening while striking out two. He now boasts a tremendous 2.56 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 72/31 K/BB ratio over 102 innings on the season. He'll look to extend his dominance further when he does battle against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Max Scherzer gave up two runs over 8 1/3 innings in a complete-game loss against the Braves on Thursday.

The game was tied 1-1 until Scherzer gave up a walk-off single to Cameron Maybin in the bottom of the ninth. While he took the loss, it was still a heck of an outing. Scherzer allowed a total of five hits and no walks while striking out nine batters. He now has a 42/1 K/BB ratio over his last four starts and has gone the distance in three of them. Quite a run for someone who had one complete game over his first 210 starts in the majors.

Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will not rejoin the Yankees on Friday as had been anticipated.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Thursday that Ellsbury is still trying to get his legs in baseball shape. It seems likely that he'll continue on his minor league rehab assignment with High-A Tampa through the weekend before rejoining the Bombers next week.

Manny Banuelos was forced to leave his major league debut in the sixth inning on Thursday with an apparent injury.

Banuelos was visited by the trainer and pulled after consecutive hit batsmen in the sixth inning. He had been absolutely dealing prior to that point, hurling 5 2/3 shutout innings while allowing just two hits and striking out seven. The Braves should have an update on his status soon.

According to Robert Patrick and Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Cardinals have fired scouting director Chris Correa after an "imposed leave of absence."

The Cardinals declined to comment on the situation, but a source with knowledge of the investigation into the hacking of the Astros' network said that Correa admitted to accessing the database in order to verify that the team had stolen proprietary data. Many assumed that some lower-level employees were involved in the alleged hacking, but this story obviously goes much deeper. Correa, who originally started working with the Cardinals in 2009, was promoted to director of amateur scouting over the winter and recently oversaw his first draft.

Miguel Sano will serve as the designated hitter and bat sixth in his MLB debut Thursday against the Royals.

Sano was called up Thursday after batting .274/.374/.544 with 15 home runs and 48 RBI over 66 games this season with Double-A Chattanooga. The 22-year-old offers massive power potential from the right side of the plate. He's expected to serve as the primary DH now that Kennys Vargas has been demoted, so he's well worth a flier in most fantasy formats.

Cardinals placed OF Jon Jay on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 1, with a left wrist stress reaction/bone bruise.

Jay has been dealing with the wrist injury all season and hopes that a couple of weeks of rest will prove beneficial. He'll be eligible to return after the All-Star break.

Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports that the Dodgers have signed right-hander Trevor Cahill.

No official word yet from the Dodgers, but it's presumably a minor league deal. Cahill had an ugly 7.52 ERA in three starts and 12 relief appearances with the Braves this season and will function as organizational depth.

Jake Arrieta pitched a superb game in Thursday's 6-1 win over the Mets, tossing eight innings and allowing just one run.

Arrieta scattered five hits over his eight innings, striking out seven without walking a batter. Three of the hits went for doubles, but only Curtis Granderson's two-bagger in the third inning would plate a run. In his last 24 innings, Arrieta has allowed just two runs. He holds a 2.80 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 110/23 K/BB ratio in 106 innings and is pitching his best ball of the season as we near the All-Star Break. He'll have his work cut out for him in his next scheduled start, though, a Tuesday afternoon home tilt with the Cardinals.
Jul 2 - 4:01 PM

Freddie Freeman (wrist) confirmed Thursday that he'll be out through the All-Star break.

The Braves were initially hoping that Freeman would be ready to return sooner, but that was mostly wishful thinking. He's aiming to rehab during the All-Star break and rejoin the Braves shortly after.
Jul 2 - 4:00 PM

Corey Kluber fanned 14 and allowed four runs (three earned) to the Rays over eight innings in earning a no-decision on Thursday.

Kluber scattered seven hits and walked just one in the contest. The Rays dinged him for two runs in the first inning and two in the sixth, but he otherwise managed to keep the scoreboard clean. Despite his brilliance across eight innings, the score remained tied at 4-4 after he exited the game and he was unable to pick up the victory. Nothing new there, as Kluber currently holds a 3-9 record. That aside, he's struck out 24 batters in his last 15 innings and holds a 3.64 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 141/24 K/BB ratio over 118 2/3 innings this season. He'll look to break back into the win column in a home start against the Astros next time he takes the mound.
