Javier Baez will be promoted to the Cubs on Tuesday.

Baez got off to a slow start this season at Triple-A Iowa, but he hit .322 with a 1.046 OPS, 12 home runs, and 38 RBI over his last 40 games and obviously isn't being brought up to sit on the Cubs' bench. The talented 21-year-old can play both shortstop and second base, and is worth adding in all mixed fantasy leagues for the stretch run. He'll debut Tuesday night in Colorado.

Justin Verlander spanned 5 2/3 innings on Wednesday night, allowing four hits, three runs and a walk in a no-decision against Seattle.

Verlander collected a season-high 11 strikeouts. He tormented Seattle early, taking a perfect game into the sixth inning. Jarrod Dyson ruined his bid for perfection with a bunt single that eventually sparked a three-run rally. Verlander handed the bullpen a one-run lead but Shane Greene promptly gave it up by allowing four runs in the seventh inning. Last year’s Cy Young runner-up will carry a six-start winless streak into his next outing Tuesday against the Royals.

Nelson Cruz plated three runs Wednesday in the Mariners’ comeback win over the Tigers.

Seattle didn’t have its first base-runner until the sixth inning, but that didn’t stop the Mariners from stealing a 7-5 victory. Cruz was a seminal figure in Seattle’s comeback, narrowing the gap to 4-3 with a two-run double in the sixth before giving the Mariners an insurance run with an RBI single in the seventh. A recent MRI showed a minor tear in his right calf, but that hasn’t done much to slow Cruz, who leads the American League with 58 RBI.

Matt Kemp hit a game-ending two-run homer to beat the Giants 5-3 in 11 innings on Wednesday.

He was 0-for-4 with three strikeouts when he got a fifth chance in the bottom of the 11th inning of a tie game. He lifted a ball the opposite way that just barely scraped over the right field wall for the walk-off. Kemp is no longer the MVP-caliber 30/30 threat he was a few years ago but he is having a good fantasy season. He is rocking a .320 batting average with 12 home runs, 30 runs and 35 RBI. He has yet to steal a base successfully and only had one last year.

Yasmani Grandal unleashed on the Mets, hammering a pair of home runs Wednesday in the Dodgers’ 8-2 victory.

He took Tyler Pill deep for a solo shot in the sixth and made Neil Ramirez his next victim with another solo blast in the eighth. Grandal has had a monster series, gashing the Mets by going 5-for-9 with three homers over his last two games. Wednesday was Grandal’s first multi-homer game since Opening Day.

Yasiel Puig rocked his 13th homer of the year in Wednesday’s win over the Mets.

He admired the heck out of it too, taking an incredible 32 seconds to tour the bases. Puig’s three-run shot off Tyler Pill put Los Angeles up 5-1 in the fourth inning. The 26-year-old still isn’t hitting for a high average (.247) but he’s rediscovered his power stroke by slugging four homers over his last eight games.

Carlos Carrasco punched out 10 batters while firing six shutout innings to lead his team to a 5-1 win over the Orioles on Wednesday.

He gave up seven hits without walking a batter and reached double figures in strikeouts for the first time this year. All of the hits he allowed were singles. Carrasco moves to 8-3 with a very nice 2.99 ERA and stellar 1.02 WHIP after 14 starts. He has 89 strikeouts and 22 walks in 87 1/3 innings. His fantasy owners are looking forward to his two-start week coming up.

David Peralta rattled off four hits Wednesday in the Diamondbacks’ 16-5 victory over the Rockies.

He reached five times, walking once and scoring on four occasions. All four of his hits were singles. Peralta has had an incredible month so far, batting .390 over 59 June at-bats. His .332 average this year ranks fourth in the National League behind Ryan Zimmerman, Daniel Murphy and Buster Posey.

Brandon Drury buried the Rockies on Wednesday night, chipping in with four hits and a career-high six RBI in Arizona’s 16-5 victory at Coors Field.

The floodgates opened for Arizona during a 10-run fourth inning and Drury played a big role in the onslaught with two hits in the frame. He plated a pair of runs on a one-out double before dropping an RBI single to center later in the inning. Drury also contributed a two-run single in the sixth and another two-run single in the ninth. Through 64 games, Drury is slashing an impressive .304/.348/.500 with eight homers and 36 RBI.

Tommy Pham cracked a pair of solo home runs, including a game-tying blast in the ninth inning, to lead the Cardinals to a 7-6 win over the Phillies on Wednesday.

His homer off starter Nick Pivetta in the fifth inning began the process of digging the Cardinals out of a 5-0 deficit. His clutch tater off closer Hector Neris in the ninth finished it. Pham did yeoman's work in the outfield as well, throwing out two runners at home plate. He is batting .286/.374/.521 with nine homers and 22 RBI in 140 at-bats. He has been getting everyday playing time of late.

Adrian Gonzalez said that if he continues to deal with back pain, he would consider retiring when his current contract runs up.

Gonzalez, who is currently on the disabled list due to a herniated disc in his back, is under contract through the 2018 season. This is not the first time he has dealt with a back issue -- the first baseman has been bothered by them on-and-off since 2012. Said Gonzalez, "I want to be out there. I want to be out there playing. But I don’t want to be out there playing when I’m hurt." In the short term, the Dodgers are hoping that the veteran slugger will be able to return to action before the All-Star break.

Jose Berrios was on his game in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the White Sox, surrendering two runs on four hits over eight innings.

Berrios struck out eight and walked one on the evening. The only run-scoring action on his line came via an RBI single by Avisail Garcia in the first inning and an RBI double play groundout by Melky Cabrera in the third. Not only did Berrios almost completely handcuff the White Sox in this one, he did so in extremely economical fashion, needing just 97 pitches to get through eight innings. This marks his second consecutive outing of eight frames. He has not allowed more than two runs in any of his last four starts and will try to keep the momentum going when he carries a 2.67 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 54/15 K/BB ratio (54 innings) into a road showdown with the Red Sox next time he takes to the mound.
