In his spectacular Diamondbacks debut, Vidal Nuno tossed seven shutout innings Tuesday against the Marlins.

He also scored Arizona's only run, coming around on Aaron Hill's fifth inning single. Acquired from the Yankees in exchange for Brandon McCarthy and cash over the weekend, Nuno dazzled the Arizona faithful in his first outing sporting Sedona red and Sonoran sand. He would have won if Addison Reed hadn't blown a save. The 26-year-old posted a 4.78 ERA across 98 innings the last two seasons for the Yankees, but we think he'll find pitching in the National League a little easier. Overall, Nuno finishes the first half 2-5 with a 4.98 ERA.

Sonny Gray tossed a three-hit shutout, beating the Dodgers on Tuesday.

The Dodgers' only hits came in the fourth inning on a two-out Adrian Gonzalez double, in the seventh when Howie Kendrick led off with a single, and in the ninth when Kendrick kept hope alive with another single. Gray issued one walk and struck out nine in a 110-pitch effort. He's the AL leader in ERA at 2.16 with a 0.97 WHIP and a 124/36 K/BB ratio over 145 2/3 innings. He'll have a good opportunity to improve on that as he gets to face the struggling Indians at home next.

An MRI on Mike Trout's left wrist showed only mild inflammation.

The Angels weren't worried about Trout's wrist, but this gives them and fantasy owners peace of mind. Manager Mike Scioscia said that Trout could return to the lineup as soon as Wednesday.

D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-4 with a double, triple and two runs scored in the Rockies' 7-2 win over the Cubs on Tuesday.

LeMahieu got the scoring started with an RBI double in the first inning, coming around to score later in the inning. He fell a homer shy of a cycle, but that's not terribly surprising given that he's hit just 13 homers in 469 career games. Still, the 27-year-old is on fire in July, riding an 18-game hitting streak en route to a .324/.381/.423 overall line. His 56 runs scored are eighth-most in the National League.

Joey Votto went 3-for-3 with a three-run home run as the Reds shut out the Cardinals 4-0 on Tuesday.

Votto hit a single and a double to go along with his three-run homer in the sixth inning. The multi-hit game was his eighth in his last 11 contests, including five three-hit outings. After a lull in early July, the 31-year-old is back to hitting a robust .311/.428/.538 with 19 homers, 51 RBI and 55 runs scored overall.

Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports that Mookie Betts will likely be placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Betts is showing concussion symptoms after tumbling over the short bullpen wall at Fenway Park while trying to make a catch during Tuesday's game. It's unclear at this point how much time he might miss, but it makes no sense for the Red Sox to push him. Jackie Bradley Jr. is expected to be called up to take Betts' spot on the roster and in center field.

Curt Casali contributed two home runs in Tuesday's rout of the Tigers, finishing 3-for-4.

Casali belted two home runs on Monday as well. He drilled a two-run home run to left-center off of David Price in the fourth inning and added a solo shot in the sixth. Casali has only 55 plate appearances on the year, but has gone yard seven times with 11 RBI and a .300/.345/.780 batting line.

Jose Abreu went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI as the White Sox jumped on the Red Sox 9-4 on Tuesday.

Abreu had three of the team's 14 hits on the evening, hitting a two-run homer in the sixth before adding an RBI double in the eighth. The homer was his 16th of the year, giving him 56 RBI. The three-hit night extended his modest hitting streak to eight games while raising his overall line to .296/.349/.489.

Eric Hosmer was responsible for both runs as the Royals edged the Indians on Tuesday, finishing 3-for-4.

He broke a 25-game homerless drought last week and now has three round-trippers in his last seven games. Hosmer has 11 home runs overall with 55 RBI and a .313/.372/.478 batting line.
