Felix Hernandez struck out 11 while allowing two runs in seven-plus innings Friday in a win over the A's.

Manager Lloyd McClendon had little reason to send Hernandez back out for the eighth having already thrown 100 pitches in a 6-0 game, but he did and it nearly cost him big-time. Hernandez hit the first batter he faced and then gave up a single before being pulled. The Mariners ended up using four pitchers and giving up four runs in the frame, with two of the runs being charged to King Felix. Fortunately, Fernando Rodney shut the door from there in the ninth, giving Hernandez his third win in three starts.

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.

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.

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.

Adam Eaton exited Sunday's game versus the Mariners with a bruised right forearm.

Eaton was hit in the forearm by a Taijuan Walker pitch in the fourth inning. The good news is X-rays came back negative and he's considered day-to-day.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Yasiel Puig has been placed on revocable waivers.

Most every player goes through revocable waivers in August, but there would seem to be a small chance Puig gets moved given the whispers about the Dodgers listening to trade offers for him over the last couple months. However, as Rosenthal notes, a trade is much likelier over the offseason when the Dodgers are able to negotiate with all teams rather than just the one that claims him.

Asdrubal Cabrera exited Sunday's game versus the Phillies with a sore left knee.

It looked like his arm was hurt in a collision at first base with Tommy Joseph, but apparently Cabrera aggravated the knee injury that recently cost him three weeks of action. The Mets could have more on his status after the game, but this could certainly be a disabled list situation.

Sonny Gray (forearm) is slated to resume a throwing program this week.

Gray has been shut down for the last three weeks with a muscle strain and inflammation in his right forearm, but he's apparently experienced improvement of late. A return before the end of the season is possible but not a given, especially with the minor league season likely ending before Gray would be ready for a rehab assignment. He's posted a 5.74 ERA over 21 starts this season.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports hears that Giancarlo Stanton (groin) could return for the final week of the regular season if things go "absolutely perfect."

The report backs up what Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill said a week ago about Stanton holding out hope for a late-season return. It's certainly good news for the club, although it's just speculation at this point with Stanton still shut down from baseball activities. The slugger suffered a Grade 3 groin strain two weeks ago.

Dustin Pedroia will be away from the Red Sox on Sunday due to a family matter.

The Red Sox will not make a roster move, and it's possible, although not a given, that Pedroia will rejoin the club on Monday. It's unfortunate timing, as Pedroia is red-hot at the plate with 11 hits in his last 12 at-bats. The Red Sox are playing the Sunday night game and haven't released a lineup yet, so it's unclear who will be filling in for Pedroia at second base. Aaron Hill, Brock Holt and Marco Hernandez are the options.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Sunday that Adam Jones (hamstring) is "close" to returning to the lineup.

Showalter speculated that if they were playing a night game rather than a day game Sunday that Jones would be in the lineup. The outfielder has been in and out of action since suffering a hamstring injury Thursday but should be available off the bench Sunday and back in the lineup Monday.

Wil Myers was scratched from the Padres' lineup Sunday with a stomach virus.

He should be OK in a day or two. Yangervis Solarte will slide across the diamond to cover for Myers, with Adam Rosales entering the lineup at third base.
