Rockies signed 1B Ryan Howard to a minor league contract.

It's the first we've heard of Howard since the Braves cut him loose in early May. Howard's power would theoretically play well at Coors Field, though the 37-year-old didn't show much during an 11-game stint with Triple-A Gwinnett earlier this year (.184 AVG, 1 HR, 5 RBI in 38 at-bats). He'll likely begin his Rockies tenure with Triple-A Albuquerque.

Kenley Jansen registered his 27th save of the season in Sunday's victory against the Angels.

Manager Dave Roberts, a.k.a. Doc, said after the game that while Jansen looked better, he would get four days off. That likely means the skipper will not play Jansen in the All-Star Game on Tuesday in Washington. Fantasy owners hope he gets rest and comes back raring to go in the second half. After a slow start, Jansen now has converted 27 of his 30 save chances while posting a 2.33 ERA and a microscopic 0.93 WHIP across 46 1/3 innings over 44 appearances.

Brian Dozier hit a walk-off grand slam in the bottom of the 10th inning Sunday as the Twins beat the Rays 11-7.

The heroic big fly came after the Rays opted to intentionally walk Joe Mauer and Eddie Rosario to load the bases. Dozier also hit an RBI single in the bottom of the seventh, driving in five total runs on the day. The veteran second baseman has been hugely productive since the calendar flipped to July and finished the first half with 16 home runs, 48 RBI, five stolen bases, and 60 runs scored in 93 games.

Josh Bell went 2-for-5 with a two-run walk-off double in a 6-5 victory over the Brewers on Sunday in extra innings.

Bell came to the plate with the Pirates trailing 6-5, but he laced a two-run extra-base hit to score Gregory Polanco and Colin Moran to give Pittsburgh the win over Milwaukee. Bell has swung the bat much better as of late, but his first-half line of .261/.342/.396 with five homers is disappointing after he hit 26 homers in his 2017 campaign.

Lucas Giolito threw 6 1/3 scoreless innings on Sunday in a 10-1 victory over the Royals.

This marks back-to-back strong starts for Giolito, which is nice to see considering he was pummeled for seven runs in the start before that, and if we're being honest, most of the starts before this as well. He did walk three, but he allowed just two hits, and he struck out six. There's still a chance Giolito has some long-term value for the White Sox, but let's keep in mind that the Royals are atrocious, and Giolito still owns an ERA of 6.18 even with the shutout innings. His next start will come sometime after the All-Star break.

Matt Carpenter hit another leadoff homer Sunday in the Cardinals' 6-4 defeat of the Reds.

He did the same on Saturday, but the Cardinals wound up losing that one. Carpenter has been on a tremendous run for the last month-plus and will try to keep it going when the second half kicks off for St. Louis on Thursday at Wrigley Field. His season OPS is up to .903.

Jordan Hicks earned his second career save Sunday in the Cardinals' win over the Reds.

Hicks gave up two hits, including an RBI single to Scooter Gennett, but the hard-throwing youngster ultimately managed to ice a 6-4 victory for St. Louis. Bud Norris was apparently unavailable for this game because of an arm issue. If it lingers through the All-Star break, Hicks could open the second half as the Cardinals' primary closer.
Jul 15 - 5:16 PM

Jeremy Hellickson allowed one run over six innings with six strikeouts in a 6-1 victory over the Mets on Sunday.

Hellickson allowed just two hits, and he walked two. It makes back-to-back strong starts for the right-hander after his nine-run start against the Marlins on July 5. Signed to a minor league contract this spring, Hellickson has beaten expectations, posting a 3.29 ERA and 1.05 WHIP over 13 starts and 63 innings. His next start will come after the All-Star break, but it has yet to be scheduled.
Jul 15 - 5:08 PM

Manny Machado went 1-for-1 with a homer and a walk in a 6-5 victory over the Rangers on Sunday.

Machado's homer was his 24th of the season, and it came off of Mike Minor in the first inning with no one on. There's at least a chance that this was the last time we see Machado in a Baltimore uniform -- not counting the All-Star game -- as trade rumors run rampant for his services. Whatever team acquires him will betting a hitter who has a line of .315/.387/.575 with 65 RBI and eight stolen bases on nine attempts.

Red Sox' manager Alex Cora announced Sunday that Eduardo Rodriguez has "serious damage" to the ligaments in his right ankle.

He won't require surgery, and the Red Sox are optimistic that he'll be able to pitch again this season, but that isn't a certainty. He'll be in a walking boot for the next two weeks before being re-evaluated. It's a crushing blow to his fantasy value for the 2018 season. The 25-year-old southpaw has been a major asset in mixed leagues, posting an 11-3 record, 3.44 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 110/32 K/BB ratio across his 104 2/3 innings.
Jul 15 - 4:42 PM

Julio Teheran pitched 6 1/3 scoreless innings in a win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Teheran allowed just four hits against the Arizona lineup, and while he did walk three, he was able to fan six and keep anything from crossing the plate. It’s been a bit of a mixed first-half for the right-hander, but when Teheran has been on, he’s been excellent. He’ll take a 4.00 ERA into his first start after the All-Star break, but that start has yet to be announced as Atlanta hasn’t set their second-half rotation just yet.
Jul 15 - 4:36 PM

Josh Harrison was pulled from Sunday's game against the Brewers with left hamstring discomfort.

Harrison was injured while running out a grounder. He's being treated and examined further and an update on his condition figures to be available after the game.
