Jeremy Guthrie yielded two runs in a complete-game victory against the Diamondbacks on Thursday.

Guthrie, who retired the last 19 batters he faced, declined to issue a free pass and struck out four batters. He was absolutely battered in July, going 1-3 with a 10.07 ERA in four starts, but allowed three hits over six innings Friday against the A's in his first start of August and put together his second consecutive quality outing this evening. The right-hander is safe to use in AL-only formats again. Guthrie (8-9, 4.35 ERA) gets the A's again next week.

Carlos Correa reached base twice Wednesday in the Astros’ win over the Angels.

Correa walked in the fourth inning and later scored on a bases-clearing double by Alex Bregman. He followed that up in the sixth by ripping a double to right field off Halos right-hander Nick Tropeano. In doing so, he extended his hitting streak to 10 games. Correa’s .341 average through 88 at-bats ranks seventh in the American League.

Jose Altuve slugged his first home run of the year Wednesday in the Astros’ win over the Angels.

Altuve went hitless with a walk in his other three plate appearances. The reigning AL MVP teed off on Nick Tropeano in the sixth inning, extending Houston’s lead to 4-0 by belting a solo shot to left field. Altuve hasn’t shown much power in the early going—Wednesday’s home run was only his fifth extra-base hit of the year—though he’s still hitting for average with a .333 mark through 102 at-bats.

Justin Verlander gave up four hits and two runs over seven stellar innings Wednesday in the Astros’ win over the Angels.

He notched nine strikeouts over his 97 pitches. Verlander had a perfect game going until Zack Cozart broke it up with a two-out single in the fifth inning. He cruised through his first six innings but seemed to run out of gas in the seventh, allowing a solo home run to Albert Pujols and an RBI double to Cozart later in the frame. Including the postseason, Verlander is now 13-1 with a 1.55 ERA in 17 appearances (16 starts) since joining Houston late last season. Wednesday was the first time the right-hander threw to a catcher other than Brian McCann, who caught all of Verlander’s previous starts with Houston.

Albert Pujols launched his fifth home run of the season Wednesday in the Angels’ loss to the Astros.

The three-time MVP ended Justin Verlander’s shutout bid in the seventh by drilling a solo shot to left field. That marked the 619th home run of his illustrious career. Pujols is now just six hits away from 3,000, a milestone he could reach in the Angels’ upcoming series against the Yankees.

Athletics acquired RHP Wilmer Font from the Dodgers in return for LHP Logan Salow.

Font, 27, was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Monday after allowing 13 runs in his 10 1/3 innings with Los Angeles. The right-hander has shown swing-and-miss stuff, but he's also shown he doesn't command that stuff very well. Expect him to pitch in low-leverage situations for the Athletics, with an outside chance of making some starts.

Rangers placed 3B Adrian Beltre on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Beltre strained the hamstring while hustling out a single in the eighth inning against the Athletics on Tuesday. The Rangers called up outfielder Ryan Rua to take his place. Beltre has been a quick healer in his career, and assuming there are no setbacks in his rehab he should be back with Texas in a couple of weeks.

Adrian Beltre is not in the lineup on Wednesday against the Athletics.

Beltre was diagnosed with a left hamstring strain on Tuesday after running down the line on an RBI single against the Athletics. He hasn't been placed on the disabled list yet, but a trip to the 10-day DL could be in the cards for the 39-year-old. Isiah Kiner-Falefa will play third in Beltre's place.
Apr 25 - 4:08 PM

Brewers placed 1B Eric Thames on the 10-day disabled list with a torn UCL in his left thumb.

Awful news, as Thames was having another tremendous April. UCL thumb tears can sometimes cost players as much as two months and sap power production even when the player returns. Jesus Aguilar will get a boost in starts at first base in Thames' absence, and Ryan Braun could also see more action at the position. Thames had a .976 OPS and seven home runs through 22 games this season for Milwaukee.
Apr 25 - 3:33 PM

Orioles placed INF Tim Beckham on the 10-day disabled list with a left groin strain.

Beckham initially injured his groin during spring training and then reaggravated it in Monday's game against the Indians. He could be sidelined for three or even four weeks. Danny Valencia is at third base and batting sixth on Wednesday night against the Rays.
Apr 25 - 3:29 PM

Kris Bryant (head) remains out of the Cubs' starting lineup Wednesday night against the Indians.

Bryant took a pitch off his helmet on Sunday and hasn't played since, though he did pass his initial round of concussion tests. Tommy La Stella is starting at third base and batting fifth for the Cubs on Wednesday versus Cleveland right-hander Trevor Bauer.
Apr 25 - 3:26 PM

Jose Abreu left Wednesday's game against the Mariners after experiencing flu-like symptoms.

Abreu was 0-for-2 before getting replaced at first base by Matt Davidson to begin the top of the fourth inning. The veteran slugger might have to sit out Thursday's series opener at Kansas City.
