Jacob deGrom scattered seven hits and one run over seven strong innings Wednesday in the Mets’ loss to Atlanta.

DeGrom fanned seven and didn’t walk anyone over 86 pitches. The only run he allowed came in the fourth on an RBI single by Freddie Freeman. The 29-year-old owns the National League’s lowest ERA at 1.55 but somehow has just four wins to show for it. The Mets have won only once this month and have scored a combined six runs over deGrom’s last five outings. The right-hander will face the Rockies in his next start Monday at Coors Field.

Justin Upton went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and three RBI to lead the Angels to a 7-3 win over the Padres on Tuesday.

Upton clobbered a mammoth 435-foot two-run blast, his 26th long-ball of the year, off Padres starter Brett Kennedy in the fifth inning and tacked on an RBI single against reliever Robert Stock in the seventh. It was another monster night for the 30-year-old veteran outfielder, who homered for the second consecutive contest, and continues to haunt his former organization. A notoriously streaky hitter, he's on quite a tear lately, going deep five times in seven games since August 7. He's hitting .267/.352/.481 with 67 runs scored, 26 homers, 73 RBI and six stolen bases in 505 plate appearances.

Tommy Pham (foot) is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment Wednesday with Low-A Hudson Valley.

And it sounds like he might only need a couple of minor league rehab games before returning to the Rays' active roster, possibly sometime this weekend. "He feels really good," manager Kevin Cash said Tuesday. "Hopefully a quick turnaround." Pham, who was acquired from the Cardinals on July 31, suffered a fractured right foot in just his second game with Tampa Bay.

Mariners manager Scott Servais said late Tuesday night that James Paxton (arm) will miss at least one turn in the rotation.

Paxton suffered a left forearm contusion when he got struck by a line drive off the bat of Jed Lowrie in the bottom of the first inning Tuesday in Oakland. He's presumably going to be placed on the disabled list Wednesday, though it does sound like it'll be a minimum 10-day stint. Felix Hernandez came on in relief of Paxton on Tuesday night against the Athletics and is the logical temporary replacement for him in the Mariners' rotation.

Yasiel Puig was ejected from Tuesday night's game against the Giants after shoving catcher Nick Hundley.

Hundley began chirping at Puig after a foul tip in the bottom of the seventh inning and the two went face-to-face in front of home plate before Puig shoved Hundley twice and then took a swipe at his mask as both benches cleared. Hundley also got tossed. Puig could be facing a suspension for initiating the physical contact.

Kolten Wong went 3-for-3 with a two-RBI double and a solo home run in the Cardinals' win over the Nationals on Tuesday.

Wong pulled a two-RBI double down the right-field line in the fourth inning and later added a towering solo home run that just cleared the wall in right. He also had a single and a walk, reaching base in all four plate appearances on the night. Wong is batting .341 since the beginning of July, but he has just two homers and two steals over that span. He just doesn't provide much category juice and remains stuck at the bottom of the Cards' batting order.

Ronald Acuna Jr. went 3-for-5 with two more homers and four RBI as the Braves topped the Marlins 10-6 on Tuesday.

Juan Soto had 192 points of OPS on Acuna (.992 to .800) when the Nationals and Braves finished a doubleheader a week ago on Aug. 7. At the close of play tonight, the margin is likely to be down to 40-50 points, as Acuna is all of the way up to .922 after hitting seven homers in seven games. The NL Rookie of the Year award race is most certainly on.

J.A. Happ walked four but gave up just one single over seven shutout innings Tuesday in the Yankees’ 4-1 victory over the Rays.

The four free passes Happ handed out were more than he issued over his last four starts combined, but a C.J. Cron single with one out in the fourth inning was the only base knock he permitted. Over his first 19 innings in pinstripes across three starts, Happ has given up just eight hits and four runs, boasting a 1.89 ERA and 0.74 WHIP. He’ll take on his former team, the Blue Jays, on Sunday at Yankee Stadium.

Rick Porcello was on point Tuesday, whiffing a season-high 10 batters across seven innings of one-run ball in the Red Sox’ 2-1 win over the Phillies.

Rhys Hoskins broke up Porcello’s perfect game with a leadoff homer in the fifth inning and Odubel Herrera added a two-out single in the same frame, but those were the only two baserunners the Phillies managed all night against the former Cy Young winner. He needed just 90 pitches to cruise through his seven innings and even added a double at the plate. It might have been Porcello’s best start of the season, which is saying something considering he threw a complete game versus the Yankees two starts ago. Porcello has mixed in some clunkers, which is why his ERA is over 4.00, but the 29-year-old really has had a fantastic season. He faces the Indians at home the next time out.

Kenley Jansen (heart) is hoping to be cleared to return after a follow-up visit with a cardiologist next Monday.

Jansen threw a successful bullpen session Monday, did conditioning work on Tuesday, and is planning to throw to hitters on Wednesday. He'll then travel with the Dodgers to Seattle and face hitters again on Friday. The 30-year-old closer was initially expected to miss 4-6 weeks when he landed on the disabled list August 8 with a recurrence of heart problems, but he'll beat that timetable by a mile if everything goes according to plan.

Giants activated 1B Brandon Belt from the 10-day disabled list.

Belt will be available off the bench Tuesday night against the Dodgers and should return to the starting lineup on Wednesday. He missed a little over two weeks of action with a hyperextended left knee. The 30-year-old first baseman has batted .278/.372/.470 with 14 home runs and 43 RBI in 85 games this season.
Aug 14 - 8:22 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said he's optimistic Brandon Crawford will avoid the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Crawford took a knee to the head in an outfield collision with teammate Gorkys Hernandez on Monday night at Dodger Stadium, but he has apparently passed his first round of concussion tests and could be ready to return to action before the end of this week. Alen Hanson is starting at shortstop and batting eighth Tuesday versus Los Angeles.
