Red Sox catching prospect Daniel Flores has died due to complications from cancer.

It was reported Wednesday afternoon that Flores would miss part of the 2018 season due to a serious medical condition. Now the story has turned horribly tragic. Flores, a native of Venezuela, was given a $3.1 million dollar signing bonus in July, and was considered one of the best catching prospects in the international market in quite some time. He was 17 years old.

Jeurys Familia worked two scoreless innings and earned a win Sunday in his A's debut against the Giants.

Familia gave up a single to the first batter he faced in the top of the ninth, but he struck out Steven Duggar and induced an inning-ending double play from Alen Hanson. The former Mets closer then worked a 1-2-3 frame in the top of the 10th. He was acquired from New York on Saturday to operate primarily as a bridge to Blake Treinen.

Khris Davis cranked two home runs Sunday in the Athletics' extra-innings win over the Giants.

Davis opened the game's scoring with a two-run homer in the bottom of the first and then tied things up with a solo shot in the bottom of the eighth. Matt Chapman would then walk it off for Oakland with an RBI infield single in the 10th. Davis is up to 23 home runs and 67 RBI in 90 games this season.

Marco Gonzales notched his 11th win of the season on Sunday afternoon against the White Sox.

Gonzales gave up a two-run homer to Tim Anderson in the top of the sixth inning but otherwise pitched well, yielding only three other hits and one walk while striking out six White Sox hitters. The 26-year-old left-hander is now 11-5 on the season with a 3.38 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 104/23 K/BB ratio in 119 2/3 innings. He'll get the Angels on the road next.

Ryon Healy hit a pair of three-run homers Sunday in the Mariners' 8-2 win over the White Sox.

Healy's first three-run shot capped off a five-run first inning for the host Mariners, and his second one in the bottom of the eighth put the game completely out of grasp. Healy has an ugly .274 on-base percentage in 82 games this season for Seattle, but he's up to 20 home runs and 53 RBI. That puts him on pace to finish the year with 32 homers and 86 RBI -- both of which would be career highs.

Zack Greinke allowed just two hits and one run over eight innings while striking out 13 in a 6-1 victory over the Rockies on Sunday.

Well, that’s a good way to start the second half, Mr. Greinke. Calling this a dominant effort from the right-hander is an understatement. The only run -- and for a while the only hit -- was a solo homer from Ian Desmond. Remember when people were concerned because of Greinke’s lack of velocity in spring training? We don’t either. This now makes six straight starts where he’s allowed no more than two runs, and four of them have seen Greinke allow zero. He’s on fire, and he gets the Padres on Friday in his next outing.

Jose Quintana held the Cardinals to two runs over seven innings Sunday for his ninth win of the season.

Quintana issued four walks and surrendered six hits, but he mostly prevented the Cardinals from inflicting major damage as the Cubs took the rubber match of a big five-game set against their arch rival. Quintana entered the All-Star break with some shoulder fatigue, but he got nearly two weeks off between his final start of the first half and this outing Sunday. The 29-year-old left-hander will carry a decent 3.87 ERA into his next turn Friday at St. Louis.

Rougned Odor went 3-for-3 with a homer on Sunday in a 5-0 victory over the Indians.

Odor took Oliver Perez deep in the eighth inning, and it gives the second baseman seven homers on the season. He also stole a base, his eighth of the 2018 campaign. Odor's slash of .259/.332/.403 doesn't articulate how well he's been swinging the bat as of late, as the 24-year-old second baseman has shown glimpses of the player that was so intriguing not long ago. We're not saying here's there yet, but if he's still available in your leagues, by all means.

Chris Archer struck out a season-high 13 batters, allowing four runs (three earned) on eight hits over six innings, but came away with a no-decision in the Rays' 6-4 win over the Marlins.

Archer looked crisp early on, striking out the side in the first inning in his third start since coming off the disabled list for an abdominal strain. He then immediately ran into trouble, allowing four runs on four hits in the ensuing frame. Miguel Rojas opened the floodgates with a bases-loaded, two-run double to right field. Three runs ended up scoring on the play as a result of a throwing error by Carlos Gomez. Rojas eventually came around to score on an RBI single from Bryan Holaday. Archer was virtually unhittable from that point on, retiring 14 of the final 19 batters he faced, racking up 10 strikeouts during that stretch. He threw 76 of 101 pitches for strikes and did not walk a batter. A prime candidate to be moved at the July 31 trade deadline, the 29-year-old right-hander is striking out over a batter per inning for the fourth consecutive year, but remains a little lackluster in the run prevention department.

Chris Sale struck out nine hitters over six shutout innings in a 9-1 victory over the Tigers on Sunday.

You can’t possibly be surprised. Sale was once again dominant, and the nine strikeouts give him 197 on the season. That means that the southpaw is going to get to 200 strikeouts before the end of July -- again -- giving him a real chance at a 300 total. Again. It’s hard to argue against anyone who thinks this is the best fantasy pitcher in baseball right now with an 11-4 record, 2.13 ERA and 0.87 WHIP over 135 innings. Sale toes the rubber again when he faces the Twins on Friday.

Mets placed RHP Noah Syndergaard on the 10-day disabled list with hand, foot and mouth disease.

Seriously. It's believed that he contracted the disease while helping out at a youth camp. The Mets are hopeful that he'll miss just one start. The good news, is that at least there's no physical ailment that he'll need to work his way back from this time. it's unclear who will start in his place against the Padres next week.
Jul 22 - 5:18 PM

Drew Butera hit a three-run inside-the-park homer to help the Royals to a 5-3 victory over the Twins on Sunday.

Yep, Drew Butera. He hit a shot to deep center off of Trevor Hildenberger, and it broke a 2-2 tie to give Kansas City a 5-2 lead in the seventh inning. It's just the third homer of the season, and the single hit has his season average at .168 over 39 games. He'll remember this one for a long time, however.
