Ervin Santana posted his second double-digit strikeout game of the season, allowing one run in 7 1/3 innings en route to a win against the Marlins on Wednesday.

Santana struck out 10, including the one out he recorded in the eighth. His last double-digit strikeout game occurred in his second start on April 14. The Marlins had runners on base but couldn't convert, as Santana allowed six hits (all singles) and three walks. The right-hander improves his ERA to 3.87 and has a 1.27 WHIP and 107/37 K/BB ratio to go along with it. Santana will wrap up a homestand on Monday against the Padres next.

Curtis Granderson hit a grand slam in the Dodgers' comeback win over the Pirates on Monday.

Granderson's four-run shot drove Pirates starter Gerrit Cole from the game in the top of the seventh inning. The new Los Angeles outfielder also singled and drew a walk in the 12-inning victory, finishing 2-for-5 with one run scored and four RBI. He's rattled off two home runs, five RBI, and three runs scored through his first three games with Los Angeles.

A.J. Pollock hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the top of the 10th inning Monday as the Diamondbacks defeated the Mets 3-2.

It proved to be a huge home run for the Wild Card-hunting Diamondbacks after Michael Conforto answered with a solo shot off Fernando Rodney in the bottom of the 10th. Pollock isn't having a very good August overall and is up to just six home runs in 79 games this season, but the dynamic 29-year-old center fielder certainly possesses the goods to finish strong down the stretch.

Adam Jones finished 4-for-4 with a pair of solo homers Monday in the Orioles' 7-3 win over the Athletics.

Jones went deep off A's starter Chris Smith in the bottom of the fourth inning and then tagged A's reliever Ryan Dull in the bottom of the fifth. He also peppered in two singles, finishing with three total runs scored in the victory at Camden Yards. The veteran center fielder has nine multi-hit games in August and he's up to 24 homers, 63 RBI, and 69 runs in 117 games this year.

Carlos Santana exited Monday's game against the Red Sox with lower back tightness.

Santana was hitless in three plate appearances before being pulled. It's unclear at this point if it might be more than a day-to-day type injury, but the Indians should have more on his status after the game.

Andrew Miller was pulled from an appearance versus the Red Sox on Monday after aggravating the patella tendinitis in his right knee.

Miller made only one rehab appearance and was making just his second appearance since being activated from the disabled list. Clearly, he wasn't totally over the ailment and a trip back to the DL would seem to be possible, if not likely.

Carlos Gomez (shoulder) expects to be activated from the disabled list on Saturday, the first day he's eligible.

Gomez had minor surgery to remove a cyst from his right shoulder. He's slated to throw, shag flys and possibly swing a bat on Tuesday. It's unclear whether he might need a short rehab assignment before returning, but either way it sounds like fantasy owners will get him back later this week.

Steven Matz will undergo surgery this week to repair irritation of the ulnar nerve in his left elbow.

Matz was given an injection in his elbow Monday, but rather than wait to see if that would help him improve enough to return later this season, the Mets have decided it would be best for him to go under the knife now. The left-hander has reportedly been pitching through pain all season, and it's been reflected in his 6.07 ERA over 13 starts. Teammate Jacob deGrom had the same operation last September and returned for the start of spring training. It's possible Matz could be brought along a little more slowly given his past elbow issues, but he should have a good shot to be ready on Opening Day if all goes smoothly with his rehab.

Carlos Rodon held the Twins to two earned runs while striking out nine batters over 6 1/3 innings Monday in the first half of a split doubleheader.

Another excellent outing from the 24-year-old left-hander, who boasts a 2.25 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 37/9 K/BB ratio in 36 innings over his last five starts. And those numbers have come against some very good offenses, including the Indians, Red Sox, Astros, and Dodgers. Rodon has lowered his season ERA to 3.88 and he boasts 68 strikeouts in 60 1/3 total frames. The former No. 3 overall pick should be owned and active in most mixed fantasy leagues as he rolls into his next start at home against the Tigers.

Cameron Maybin (knee) is back in the Angels' lineup Monday.

It's his first start since last Tuesday, as he's been battling nagging soreness in his right knee. Maybin missed nearly three weeks of action previously due to an injury to the same knee, and he's hit only .214/.267/.250 since returning so it seems he may never have really recovered. He's feeling well enough to give it a go Monday, though.
Aug 21 - 8:04 PM

Mike Puma of the New York Post hears that Jeurys Familia (shoulder) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as this weekend.

Familia has tossed two scoreless innings on his rehab assignment so far and will pitch on back-to-back days Tuesday and Wednesday. That's often the last step before a reliever is activated, so Familia will get a day of rest Thursday before likely being activated Friday if all goes well. A.J. Ramos might keep the closer job initially if the Mets want to ease Familia back into things but the latter should get his job back in short order.

Joey Gallo is experiencing concussion symptoms and did not travel with the Rangers to Anaheim.

Gallo also suffered a nasal fracture as a result of a collision with teammate Matt Bush on Sunday. The Rangers are holding off placing Gallo on the concussion disabled list for now in hopes that he'll make a quick recovery. As is the case with all concussions, though, that's anything but a guarantee. Gallo is a risky fantasy play this week. Ryan Rua has been recalled and is getting a start in left field Monday.
