Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com hears from a source that Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo worked out for the Phillies on Tuesday.

28 out of 30 MLB teams were reportedly on hand for Castillo's showcase on Saturday and he's now scheduling private workouts for teams. According to Sanchez, he'll work out for the Red Sox on Friday and the Mariners on Sunday. Meanwhile, Ben Badler of Baseball America reports that the Yankees have also scheduled a workout. Known for his plus-speed, Castillo could receive a contract in the range of Yasiel Puig's $42 million deal with the Dodgers.

CC Sabathia was fantastic in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Mariners, firing seven innings of three-hit, one-run ball.

Sabathia struck out seven and walked just one in what was one of his stronger starts of the season. The only run to score on his watch came in the third inning, when Ketel Marte picked up an RBI single off the veteran southpaw. The shiny outing must have felt all the sweeter for what came before, as Sabathia was shelled for seven runs by the Blue Jays last time out. He will try to replicate Tuesday's results when he brings his 4.33 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 117/52 K/BB ratio (137 1/3 innings) into a road date with the Royals next time he toes the rubber.

Mets placed LHP Jon Niese on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee injury.

Niese was forced out of Tuesday's start versus the Cardinals after feeling a shooting pain in his left knee. He managed to record just one out in the first inning before being attended to by the training staff. In a corresponding move, Erik Goeddel was recalled from Triple-A. At this early stage, there is no timetable for Niese's return.

Robert Gsellman earned his first major league win Tuesday, tossing 3 2/3 scoreless innings in relief against the Cardinals.

Gsellman was thrust into a difficult position for his first MLB appearance, asked to take over for injured starter Jon Niese after Niese faced just four batters. The 23-year-old answered the bell, though, holding the Cardinals to two hits and three walks while striking out two in his debut. He was rewarded with the win for his efforts, another first. Gsellman was recalled on Monday as a likely bullpen arm, but if Niese or starter Steven Matz is forced to miss a turn it will likely be Gsellman who is asked to take the ball instead.

Hernan Perez hit a two-run triple in the seventh inning to help the Brewers get past the Rockies 6-4 on Tuesday.

The hit was Perez' only one in four at-bats, but it was a big one. With two outs and an 0-2 count, Perez slashed a Carlos Estevez pitch down the right field line and into the corner, plating both Jonathan Villar and Ryan Braun to give the Brewers a late lead. It was just the latest noteworthy performance for the 25-year-old this year, who's hitting .282/.308/.458 with 11 homers, 43 RBI, 35 runs scored and 23 steals in 87 games played.

Victor Martinez finished 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in Tuesday's 8-3 win over the Twins.

Martinez had three of the Tigers' 14 hits on the evening, including a two-run blast in the seventh. The homer was No. 23 for V-Mart, who now has 73 RBI and 52 runs scored. After enduring a cold July, the 37-year-old is hitting .305 with six homers, 13 RBI and 12 runs scored this month.

Kevin Gausman twirled six shutout innings in Tuesday's 8-1 victory over the Nationals.

It wasn't all that pretty, as Gausman recorded only two strikeouts and needed 110 pitches to get through his six frames. However, five of the six hits he gave up were singles and he managed to keep the Nats off the scoreboard in his best start in a month. Gausman will carry a 3.92 ERA into the Bronx this weekend.

Jose Abreu homered in his third straight game Tuesday, leading the White Sox to a lopsided 9-1 victory over the Phillies.

Abreu finished 2-for-3 with three RBI in the game, knocking an RBI single in the third inning before blasting a two-run homer in the fifth. After a largely pedestrian season, Abreu is lighting it up in the month of August, hitting .373 with six homers, 14 RBI and 13 runs scored. The good month has his overall line up to .285/.341/.455 with 17 home runs, 70 RBI and 48 runs scored.

Chris Davis singled and smacked a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

He singled and scored in the Orioles' three-run third inning and then added an insurance run with a long homer in the eighth off of Yusmeiro Petit. The dinger was Crush's 30th of the season, giving him at least 30 bombs in four out of the last five campaigns. Six of those homers have come over his last seven games.
Aug 23 - 11:15 PM

Ivan Nova spun his first complete game since 2013 on Tuesday, holding the Astros to one run over nine innings in a 7-1 victory.

He had a chance for a "Maddux" but gave up back-to-back doubles to start the ninth. Nova then rebounded to retire the next three batters, throwing just 98 pitches while holding the Astros to one run on six hits and a walk with six strikeouts. The former Yankee has looked like a shrewd pick-up by the Pirates, as he's put up a 3.20 ERA and 1.105 WHIP over four starts with his new club. He'll face the Brewers in Milwaukee on Sunday.

Huston Street will undergo season-ending surgery Wednesday on his right knee.

It'll be an arthroscopic procedure, which should allow Street to enter spring training in 2017 at 100 percent. The 33-year-old right-hander wound up with a highly disappointing 6.45 ERA, 1.93 WHIP, and 14/12 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings this season. He's due $9 million from Anaheim next year with a $10 million club option (or $1 million buyout) for 2018.
Aug 23 - 10:59 PM

Carlos Rodon threw 6 2/3 scoreless innings in a win over the Phillies on Tuesday.

Rodon gave up just three hits and a walk while striking out four, making it the fourth consecutive quality start turned in by the 23-year-old. He's 2-0 in those starts but just 4-8 on the year, a victim of pitching for a bad White Sox team. Rodon now owns a 4.02 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 118/40 K/BB ratio over 123 innings on the year. The southpaw seems to have found his groove this month, and he'll look to keep it going Sunday against the Mariners.
