Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in a 6-2 win over the Dodgers on Saturday.

Trout celebrated his new six-year contract, which he and the Angels announced at a press conference earlier in the day, by blasting his sixth home run of the spring off Dan Haren in the second inning. Trout finishes spring with a .414 batting average and 17 RBI to go with those six homers. He's locked in with the new season on the horizon, which doesn't bode well for American League pitchers.

Mike Fiers pitched a superb game against the Reds on Friday, hurling seven innings of shutout ball in the 12-1 win.

Fiers struck out only two, but he counteracted his lack of strikeouts by limiting the Reds to just three hits while walking only one. The strong start comes on the heels of a seven-inning, one-run performance against the Twins. Pitching for a bad Brewers team, Fiers has quietly posted a respectable 3.87 ERA, though the 1.42 WHIP is on the high side. A home start against the Braves is up next.

Jose Abreu's solo home run in the third inning was the only run to score in Friday's 1-0 win over the Orioles.

The homer was Abreu's 14th of the season. Given how thoroughly he dominated in his rookie season, it's easy to shrug off Abreu's 2015 campaign as a disappointment, but the production's been there. Just to a less Godzilla-esque degree. Abreu's slashing .291/.341/.495 with 14 homers and 44 RBI this season.

Ubaldo Jimenez picked up a tough-luck loss against the White Sox on Friday, going down in defeat despite allowing just one run over seven innings.

Jimenez allowed a solo homer to Jose Abreu in the third inning. And that was it. A rare shutout gem of a start by John Danks was all that prevented Jimenez from picking up his fifth win in a row. Still, he's been rolling and now owns a shiny 2.96 ERA, solid 1.26 WHIP and a 93/29 K/BB ratio over 94 1/3 innings. A Wednesday afternoon road contest with the Twins is up next on his schedule as he tries to return to the win column.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said after Friday's game that he isn't optimistic that Miguel Cabrera (calf) will be able to avoid the disabled list.

The All-Star slugger was forced to leave Friday's game against the Blue Jays after sustaining a left calf strain while running to second base in the fourth inning. He's set to undergo an MRI exam on Saturday, but it sounds as though the most logical scenario has him heading to the disabled list and returning after the All-Star break. The Tigers should have an update on his status after his MRI.

Clint Robinson blasted a two-run homer on Friday, powering the Nationals to a 2-1 victory over the Giants.

Jake Peavy and Gio Gonzalez were locked in a scoreless pitcher's duel until the seventh inning when Buster Posey cranked a solo homer to give the Giants the lead. It would be short-lived though, as Robinson blasted his two-run shot in the bottom half of the inning, proving to be the difference in the game. He has done a nice job in limited action for the Nationals, slashing .264/.338/424 with four homers and 15 RBI.
Jul 3 - 8:58 PM

Miguel Cabrera was removed from Friday's game against the Blue Jays in the fourth inning due to an apparent hamstring injury.

Cabrera was running to second base on a 3-2 pitch to Victor Martinez when he pulled up lame. He had to be assisted off the field by the training staff and was walking with a noticeable limp. The Tigers should have an update on his status soon, but any sort of extended absence would be a deadly blow to the Tigers chances of a postseason berth.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Mets are willing to overpay to acquire Ben Zobrist from the Athletics.

With the A's winning 12 of their last 18 games, there is hope within the organization that they could still make a run for the postseason, so at least for now Zobrist has been pulled off the trade block. That being said, you never want to give away leverage in a negotiating situation and now that the word is out A's general manager Billy Beane is likely to demand a king's ransom from the Mets in exchange for Zobrist.

Matt Holliday (quad) increased the intensity of his running on Friday.

Holliday began light jogging earlier this week and is slowly but surely ramping things up. The outfielder admitted that he's not anywhere close to full speed yet. The Cardinals are hoping to get Holliday back prior to the All-Star break, but it's no sure thing.
Jul 3 - 5:50 PM

Derek Holland (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Friday.

It's the first time he's thrown off a mound since he went down with a subscapular strain in his left shoulder in early April. There's currently no timetable for Holland's return, but he should be able to begin a rehab assignment before long.
Jul 3 - 5:47 PM

Sonny Gray (illness) is not expected to need a stint on the disabled list.

Gray has started to feel much better the last couple days after being knocked out for a while with a bout of salmonella. He should be ready to rejoin the Athletics' rotation early next week.
Jul 3 - 5:42 PM

Justin Bour homered for the fourth straight game Friday, with his solo shot proving to be the winning run in a victory over the Cubs.

Making a bid for National League Player of the Week honors, Bour put a Jason Hammel offering into the basket in right field in the sixth inning. He also singled and drew a walk, reaching base in three of four plate appearances. Michael Morse (back) is due back soon, but he might have a better shot to play in the outfield with the way Bour is going.
