Carlos Rodon tossed 7 1/3 scoreless innings Wednesday as the White Sox blanked the Cardinals 4-0.

It was easily his best outing since he made his season debut in early June. Rodon scattered three hits and two walks while striking out seven batters, notching his second win in seven starts this season. The 25-year-old left-hander ranked as one of the top pitching prospects in baseball not all that long ago and he should get better and better as he moves further and further away from last year's shoulder surgery. Look for strong results from Rodon in the second half.

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Athletics are interested in acquiring Tigers' right-hander Mike Fiers.

The 33-year-old right-hander is a free agent at season's end and highly likely to be dealt before the trade deadline at the end of the month. He has also been pitching very well for the Tigers, compiling a 2.47 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 50/14 K/BB ratio over 62 innings in his last 10 starts. That includes 6 1/3 shutout innings against the Red Sox in a victory on Saturday. The A's have tremendous prospect depth, even after acquiring Jeurys Familia this week, so there could be a match here, though Morosi notes that serious talks have not begun yet.

Vince Velazquez was dominant in Sunday's victory over the Padres, racking up seven strikeouts over seven shutout innings.

The right-hander scattered just two hits (both of them singles) and walked one. He was in complete command throughout, needing just 87 pitches to blaze through seven innings. Now 6-8 on the season, Velasquez sports a 4.09 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 117/36 K/BB ratio across 101 1/3 innings on the year. He'll look to keep the good times going when he takes on the Reds in Cincinnati on Saturday.

Juan Soto went 3-for-4 with two doubles to help the Nationals beat the Braves 6-2 on Sunday.

Soto also drew a walk, so the teenager was on four times in the victory over Atlanta. The two doubles give the wunderkind 13 on the season, and his season slash is up to .311/.422/.546 over his first 53 games. Without hyperbole, what Soto has done in his time with the Nationals is remarkable. He's not just a future star, he's a legitimate middle-of-the-order bat right now. We can't wait to see what he does in the second half of 2018.

Matt Kemp went 3-for-5 with a pair of solo home runs and three runs scored in the Dodgers 11-2 blowout win over the Brewers on Sunday.

Kemp went deep twice off southpaw Brent Suter, leading off the second and third innings, and is now up to 17 home runs in 95 games this year. He only hit 19 in 115 with the Braves last season. He also singled in the fifth inning. The remarkable renaissance campaign continues for the 33-year-old, who has shown no signs of slowing down, and is now hitting a remarkable .317/.359/.544 with 47 runs scored and 62 RBI in 337 plate appearances.

Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a homer and a stolen base to help the Angels rout the Astros 14-5 on Sunday.

Trout's homer gives him 26 on the season, and this one was a two-run shot off of Chris Devenski in the seventh inning. The stolen base gives him 16 on the season, and there's a decent chance that Trout could have a 40-homer, 30-steal season. He also walked, and his OPS is now up to a 1.057. Expect another stellar second-half from the presumed MVP of the American League.

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.
Jul 22 - 7:37 PM

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.
Jul 22 - 7:19 PM

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.
Jul 22 - 6:57 PM

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.
