Nationals reliever Erik Davis recently underwent Tommy John surgery.

Davis sustained a right elbow sprain in early February, and surgery was among the options. The right-hander had a 3.12 ERA and 12/1 K/BB ratio over 8 2/3 innings last season with the club. He's looking at being back sometime early in 2015.

David Peralta went 3-for-3 with a two-run homer and three RBI in the Diamondbacks’ 5-4 walk-off win over the Angels on Tuesday.

Peralta crushed a two-run, opposite-field dinger -- his 24th of the year -- off Angels starter Felix Pena in the first inning. He also delivered an RBI single and came around to score a run in the third, doubled in the fifth and walked in the eighth. The 31-year-old outfielder has been one of the hottest hitters in baseball this month, posting an absurd .422 (27-for-64) batting average with eight home runs and 15 RBI in 16 games.

Brett Anderson fired seven shutout innings in the Athletics’ win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

Anderson had settled for three consecutive no-decisions, despite allowing only two earned runs over 19 2/3 innings during that span, before picking up a win in this one. The 30-year-old left-hander was brilliant, holding the Rangers offense to one hit -- a leadoff double by Shin-Soo Choo in the fourth inning -- over seven shutout frames. He struck out six and only issued one walk. He’s allowed three runs or fewer in seven of eight starts since coming off the disabled list on July 8. With the victory, Anderson improves to 3-3 with a 3.47 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 12 total starts this season. He’ll face the Twins at Target Field in his next turn on Sunday.

Michael Kopech got to pitch just two scoreless innings Tuesday against the Twins before a rain delay spoiled his major league debut.

Kopech threw 52 pitches in the two innings, so perhaps it wouldn't have been a long outing for him regardless. However, he struck out four and walked none while touching 98 mph in his debut. The 22-year-old top pitching prospect should get the ball again on Sunday against the Tigers.

Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and three RBI in the Athletics' 6-0 blowout win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

Davis connected on a 95-mph fastball from Rangers reliever Matt Moore, launching a two-run, opposite field blast, his 38th round-tripper of the year, in the seventh inning. He's now tied with Red Sox slugger J.D. Martinez for the major-league lead and is on the precipice of his third-straight 40-homer campaign. He also added an RBI single in this one. There's no denying that Davis has inserted himself into the conversation for American League MVP with a monster second-half. The Athletics' offensive catalyst is hitting .304 (35-for-115) with 17 homers and 38 RBI in 29 games since the All-Star break.

Aroldis Chapman's left knee flared up on him again Tuesday and he will likely undergo an MRI.

Chapman was removed from an appearance Tuesday night against the Marlins after throwing just six pitches. He also battled left knee discomfort in early July and skipped the All-Star Game to rest it. If he requires an extended absence, Dellin Betances or David Robertson could fill in at closer for the Yankees, though Robertson is currently experiencing some minor tenderness in his right shoulder. There should be more information available on the Yankees' late-inning situation by Wednesday evening.

Blake Snell fanned 11 Royals while allowing only one run over six innings in Tuesday's victory.

It's hard to believe Snell didn't have more trouble against a lineup that featured Hunter Dozier in the cleanup spot and Rosell Herrera batting fifth. Snell has allowed just two runs over 20 innings since coming off the disabled list at the beginning of the month. He's racked up 160 strikeouts in 139 innings on the season and his ERA is down to 2.07.

Kevin Gausman tossed eight shutout innings Tuesday in the Braves' 6-1 victory over the Pirates.

Gausman had to pitch out of jams in the second, sixth and seventh innings but was able to do so without any damage being done. He ultimately yielded just four hits on the night while walking two and striking out five. Gausman didn't pitch well in his first start as a Brave but has been excellent in three outings since, allowing only three runs over his last 22 innings. The righty has surrendered just one home run over his first four starts for the Braves after giving up 21 in 21 outings with the Orioles. He has a juicy matchup Sunday in Miami.

Dansby Swanson swatted a pair of two-run home runs Tuesday in Pittsburgh.

Swanson lined one just over the wall down the left-field line in the fifth inning off of Ivan Nova and then took reliever Michael Felix deep out to left-center in the seventh. It's the first multi-homer game in the young shortstop's major league career but the fourth longball over his last nine contests. Swanson has reached base in 11 straight games.

Tommy Pham has been diagnosed with a dislocated right ring finger.

Pham suffered the injury Tuesday night against the Royals while diving back into the first base bag in the bottom of the eighth inning. X-rays turned up negative for any fractures and the Rays are calling him day-to-day, but this could very well turn into another extended absence for the 30-year-old outfielder. He just missed two weeks of action after fracturing his right foot in just his second game with Tampa Bay.

Jose Abreu underwent surgery Tuesday on his lower abdomen (or groin area) and is not expected to resume baseball activities for two weeks.

Well, that escalated quickly. Abreu was scratched from the White Sox starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Twins due to what was called lower abdominal pain, and now comes word that he'll be sidelined through at least the early part of September. The first baseman had been on a tear, slashing .350/.400/.699 with nine home runs, nine doubles, and 26 RBI over his last 26 games. Matt Davidson played first base for the White Sox on Tuesday, with Daniel Palka at DH.

Buster Posey (hip) is expected to play Wednesday.

John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday evening that Posey is facing season-ending hip surgery to repair his labrum and clean out bone spurs, but that procedure apparently won't happen right away as the Giants don't want to wave the white flag on 2018 just yet. They're currently 7 1/2 games back of the Diamondbacks for first place in the National League West standings and seven games out of the crowded hunt for the second National League Wild Card slot. Nick Hundley is starting behind the plate for the Giants on Tuesday versus the Mets.
