Jorge De La Rosa struck out 11 batters while allowing two runs -- one earned -- over 7 1/3 innings in the Rockies' 6-4 win over the Nationals on Wednesday.

De La Rosa allowed eight hits without walking a batter, and the left-hander hasn't allowed more than two runs in any of his four starts this month. The strong outing raised his record to 11-6 with a 4.19 ERA through 21 starts. He'll try to continue his strong stretch of starts when he faces the Cubs at Wrigley next week.

Ichiro Suzuki is out of the Marlins' starting lineup on Wednesday against the Phillies.

Ichiro is three hits from 3,000, but the Marlins don't want to push the 42-year-old too hard. He went 1-for-5 with a single in Tuesday's 5-0 defeat of Philadelphia.

Nationals manager Dusty Baker suggested late Tuesday that he's considering a change at closer.

Papelbon blew his second straight save opportunity on Tuesday night against the Indians, yielding three runs on two walks and two hits. He did not record an out. "It’s too soon after," Baker said in his postgame press conference. "I mean, that’s his job. That’s what he’s getting paid for. I don’t know. We just have to go back to the drawing board. It’s too early to say after the game." Washington was heavily interested in Aroldis Chapman before he went to the Cubs. Maybe there's a plan now that involves Andrew Miller. If no outside upgrade is made and Papelbon's struggles continue, Shawn Kelley could become the guy.

Adam Duvall went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and three total RBI in Tuesday's 9-7 loss to the Giants.

Duvall hit a two-run shot off Matt Cain with one out in the sixth inning for home run No. 1, then followed it up with a solo blast in the eighth for home run No. 2. He was on-deck at the time Jay Bruce whiffed to end the game with a runner on in the top of the ninth. Bruce represented the tying run. These were Duvall's first two home runs since the All-Star break and give him 25 for the season as a whole. He owns a .247/.294/.545 triple-slash over 336 at-bats.

Josh Reddick went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI to lead the Athletics past the Rangers 6-3 on Tuesday.

Reddick hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning and added an RBI single an inning later. It was a nice little showcase for the 29-year-old, who has been the subject of trade rumors in recent days. His .296/.373/.442 line has certainly increased his value, as have his seven homers, 27 RBI, 30 runs scored and four steals this year. We'll know soon enough whether the big night was his last as a member of the A's.

Joey Gallo hit his first home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Athletics.

So it begins. Gallo muscled a Sonny Gray pitch to left-center in the fifth inning to get the Rangers on the board. It was his only hit in four at-bats, and he struck out in two of the four at-bats. That's a typical Gallo night, as he'll strike out plenty but he hits it plenty far when he makes contact. The power makes him fantasy relevant, but the propensity to swing and miss makes him a high-risk, high-reward player.

Scooter Gennett went 2-for-3 with three RBI, a stolen base and a run scored as the Brewers used a late surge to down the Diamondbacks 9-4 on Tuesday.

As he did seemingly all night, Gennett had a large part in the Brewers' five-run eighth inning that sealed the win. The second baseman got the scoring started in the inning with a two-run single, and he later came around to score. Gennett has been finding ways to contribute in recent days, and the 26-year-old is hitting .264/.319/.414 with nine homers, 33 RBI, 36 runs scored and six steals in 78 games overall.

Rich Hill (finger) is tentatively scheduled to return to the A's rotation Sunday in Cleveland.

Hill first has to make it through a bullpen session Friday. He hasn't appeared in a game since July 17 because of a blister on his left middle finger, but his recent throwing sessions with a protective cover have gone well. The veteran southpaw is one of Oakland's top trade chips leading up to the August 1 deadline, boasting a 2.25 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 90/28 K/BB ratio in 76 innings this season.

Tyler Skaggs showed no rust in carving up the Royals on Tuesday, allowing just three hits over seven scoreless innings in the Angels' 13-0 victory.

Making his first major league start since July 31, 2014, Skaggs was brilliant, needing just 88 pitches to get through his seven innings. He walked one and struck out five before exiting. The 25-year-old, who is working his way back from elbow and shoulder issues, had similar success in minor league rehab starts leading up to Tuesday, so it wasn't a total surprise, but dominating Triple-A opponents and flaying the defending World Series champs are two different things. Skaggs is definitely worth a mixed league flyer, and we'll get a better idea of what we're looking at when he squares off with the potent Red Sox offense on Sunday.

Andrew Miller struck out two in a scoreless inning of work to earn his ninth save as the Yankees bested the Astros 6-3 on Tuesday.

Miller is now 2-for-2 converting save chances since taking over for the departed Aroldis Chapman. What happens with the Yankees' bullpen will be fascinating to watch over the next few days, as the club seems intent on keeping Miller but would almost certainly deal him for the right return. With a 1.39 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 77/7 K/BB ratio in 45 1/3 innings, he won't come cheap.
Jul 26 - 11:58 PM

Francisco Lindor finished 3-for-5 including a game-winning, walk-off single as the Indians came back to beat the Nationals 7-6 on Tuesday.

With the bases loaded and one out, Lindor hit an Oliver Perez pitch just past a drawn-in infield to give the Indians the victory. It capped a good night at the dish for the 22-year-old, who now has multiple hits in four of his last six games. Lindor has been one of the most productive all-around hitters in the league to this point, batting .307/.362/.460 with 12 homers, 50 RBI, 68 runs scored and 13 steals.

Jose Reyes has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 intercostal strain.

Reyes went to a local hospital for tests after feeling a muscle tweak on his final swing of Tuesday afternoon's 3-2 loss to the Cardinals -- part of a traditional doubleheader at Citi Field. He did not play in the night game (a 3-1 win) and the Mets are expecting him to miss at least a couple of days. This could easily turn into a DL situation.
