Pirates optioned INF Brent Morel to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Morel drew just one at-bat in his two-day stay with the Bucs. He'll continue serving as organizational depth.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly indicated after Tuesday's game that Hanley Ramirez (elbow) was unlikely to play Wednesday.

It's no surprise given that it's a day game after a night game. Ramirez was able to pinch-hit Tuesday (striking out), suggesting that his elbow is not at issue at the plate but in the field.

Corey Kluber struck out 14 Astros hitters Tuesday, yielding one run over seven innings in the Indians' 4-2 win.

Kluber's remarkable season continues. The right-hander mowed down the Astros for his 16th win, scattering seven hits and two walks on the evening. The win was his third straight after a three-game losing streak. Kluber will take a 2.42 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 244/48 K/BB ratio into Sunday's start at the Twins.

Roenis Elias exited Tuesday's start against the Angels with left elbow stiffness.

Well, that's no good. Elias allowed two runs on five hits and a walk and had surrendered a leadoff single in the fourth inning before departing. More info on his long-term outlook probably won't be available until Wednesday, but the rookie's season is almost surely over.

Jose Altuve went 2-for-5 with a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

The line was fairly standard for the diminutive second baseman, but it was noteworthy for the fact that Altuve passed Craig Biggio for the Astros' record for hits in a single season. He's got 211 for the season, and the Astros still have a week and a half for Altuve to pad his lead. The 24-year-old is batting a ridiculous .343/.379/.456 for the year.

Kennys Vargas went 3-for-4 with a home run Tuesday, falling just a double short of the cycle, as the Twins came back to edge the Tigers 4-3.

It was the best chance the 275-lb. Vargas may ever get at a cycle, as he legged out his first triple in 180 at-bats in the fourth inning. He followed that with a solo home run in the sixth, his eighth homer of the season, but he grounded out in his final chance at the feat. Still, the three-hit night raises his line to .294/.311/.489 with 36 RBI in 43 games this season.

Joe Nathan gave up two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning Tuesday, suffering the blown save against the Twins.

After watching his team take a one-run lead in the top half of the inning, Nathan proceeded to walk Trevor Plouffe with one out before allowing a Kurt Suzuki RBI double. Two batters later, Aaron Hicks ended the game with a walk-off infield single. Nathan's ERA is back up to 5.10, and with the Tigers needing every win they can get at this point manager Brad Ausmus will need to think long and hard about who gets the call the next time there's a save situation. Owners need to have Joakim Soria on the back burner just in case.
Sep 16 - 11:23 PM

Jake Odorizzi pitched well on Tuesday, yielding just one run over six innings as the Rays dealt the Yankees a loss.

Odorizzi has been hit or miss for most of the second half, allowing five-plus runs in three of his previous eight starts entering the evening. He was very much a "hit" on Tuesday, as he held the Yankees to five hits and a walk while punching out three batters. The 24-year-old sports an 11-2 record, a 3.98 ERA, a 1.25 WHIP, and a 171/56 K/BB ratio. Odorizzi will take the mound at Fenway Park against the Red Sox on Tuesday next.

Jake Arrieta flirted with a no-hitter, losing it with one out in the eighth, but still finished off a one-hit, 13-strikeout shutout of the Reds on Tuesday.

It's the first complete game hurled by a Cubs starter this season. Brandon Phillips squelched the no-hit bid, lacing a double just out of the reach of a diving Matt Szczur in left-center. Obviously, it's the most dominating Arrieta has looked to date in what has been a breakout season. He's 9-5 with a 2.65 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and a 157/40 K/BB ratio. Arrieta will toe the rubber next against the Dodgers at home on Sunday.

The Rangers are unsure when Alex Rios (thumb) will be ready to return to the lineup.

Rios hasn't played since September 4 due to a nagging right thumb injury and it's possible he won't return at all this season. He did travel with the club on their current road trip, but his status is very much up in the air. With Michael Choice (hamstring) also done for the season, the Rangers started Daniel Robertson in right field Tuesday.
Sep 16 - 10:52 PM

Russell Martin extended his hitting streak to eight games, slugging a two-run home run in the second inning of Tuesday's win against the Red Sox.

Martin, who finished 1-for-4, took Anthony Ranaudo out to right-center for a two-run home run in the second inning, putting the Buccos up 2-0 at the time. It's the catcher's 10th long ball of the season, and he now owns a .294/.408/.434 with 63 RBI. Martin should wind up with a few back-end NL MVP votes after the season.
Sep 16 - 10:39 PM

Steve Pearce's first-inning three-run home run gave the Orioles a lead they would not relinquish as they clinched the AL East with a win over the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Pearce put the O's up 3-1 with the jack in the first off of Drew Hutchison. It was perhaps the most poetic way for the Orioles to clinch, as Pearce has been a key contributor who came out of nowhere, in a season in which the club has gotten little out of Matt Wieters, Manny Machado, and Chris Davis. Pearce now has 18 home runs, 44 RBI, and a .294/.371/.541 slash line.
