David Price lost to the Rays on Tuesday, surrendering five runs in six innings of work.

The Rays jumped on him for three runs in the fourth inning, two of which came on the first of Curt Casali's two home runs. Casali victimized Price again for a solo shot in the sixth. The lefty, overall, allowed seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out four. He stands with a terrific 2.53 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and a 138/29 K/BB ratio in 146 innings. If Price remains with the Tigers through the trade deadline, he's on tap to finish out a road trip in Baltimore against the Orioles.

Jaime Garcia pitched well in defeat in his return to the mound Tuesday, allowing three runs over six innings in a loss to the Reds.

Garcia only yielded four hits while walking two on the night, but one of those was a three-run homer by Joey Votto in the sixth inning. He was otherwise sharp, striking out five while throwing just 80 pitches. Garcia was activated from the disabled list earlier Tuesday after missing a month with a groin strain. He owns a 2.00 ERA and 0.89 WHIP despite a 3-4 record, and Garcia will square off with the Rockies on Sunday.

Evan Longoria finished 1-for-4 in Tuesday's rout of the Tigers, slugging a solo home run.

Longoria kickstarted a five-run eighth inning to blow the Tigers out of the water, taking Neftali Feliz out to right-center for a solo home run. The third baseman is on a modest six-game hitting streak, batting .268/.337/.420 with 11 home runs and 44 RBI on the year.

Yoenis Cespedes went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, but the Tigers were felled by the Rays on Tuesday.

Cespedes hit a solo home run off of Jake Odorizzi in the fourth inning to create a 1-1 tie. He's gone deep in back-to-back games and seven times in 19 games since July 6, giving him 17 on the year with 58 RBI and a .289/.321/.500. The Tigers are four games under .500 with less than three days remaining until the trade deadline. Cespedes remains a candidate to be moved in a trade.

Curt Casali contributed two home runs in Tuesday's rout of the Tigers, finishing 3-for-4.

Casali belted two home runs on Monday as well. He drilled a two-run home run to left-center off of David Price in the fourth inning and added a solo shot in the sixth. Casali has only 55 plate appearances on the year, but has gone yard seven times with 11 RBI and a .300/.345/.780 batting line.

Jay Bruce - OF - Reds

Jay Bruce had an RBI single in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals.

Bruce was held in check by Cards starter Jaime Garcia, but he got in the action with a run-scoring single against reliever Miguel Socolovich in the ninth. Bruce finished 1-for-4 on the evening. He's somewhat quietly put together a nice stretch recently that has his line up to a respectable .257/.342/.480 with 16 homers and 55 RBI. That resurgence has his trade value up, too, as the deadline approaches.

Greg Holland worked a scoreless ninth inning to pick up his 22nd save as the Royals edged the Indians 2-1 on Tuesday.

Holland issued a one-out walk to Michael Bourn, but he was immediately erased when Mike Aviles grounded into a game-ending double play. The right-hander has struggled thus far in the second half, but is 22-for-25 in save opportunities with a 3.13 ERA and a 35/18 K/BB ratio in 31 2/3 innings overall.
Jul 28 - 10:49 PM

Chris Young got a no-decision, allowing one run in 4 2/3 innings as the Royals defeated the Indians on Tuesday.

Michael Bourn accounted for the only run when he singled to lead off the fifth, then stole second base with one out and scored on catcher Salvador Perez's throwing error. Young gave up five hits and walked three while striking out five. It's the second time in as many starts Young has failed to complete five innings, but he still maintains a productive 3.25 ERA with a 1.10 WHIP and a 66/32 K/BB ratio over 99 2/3 innings. He's set to face the Blue Jays in Toronto next.

Braves designated RHP David Carpenter for assignment.

It's the second time this month he's been removed from the 40-man roster. Assuming Carpenter clears waivers and is outrighted, he'll have the chance to declare free agency if he wants.
Jul 28 - 10:46 PM

Jose Abreu went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI as the White Sox jumped on the Red Sox 9-4 on Tuesday.

Abreu had three of the team's 14 hits on the evening, hitting a two-run homer in the sixth before adding an RBI double in the eighth. The homer was his 16th of the year, giving him 56 RBI. The three-hit night extended his modest hitting streak to eight games while raising his overall line to .296/.349/.489.
Jul 28 - 10:44 PM

Trevor Bauer pitched a nine-inning complete game, allowing two runs, but took a tough-luck loss against the Royals on Tuesday.

The struggling Indians provided Bauer only one run of support. He then went in position for the loss after allowing a solo home run to Eric Hosmer with two outs in the top of the ninth inning. Overall, the right-hander gave up five hits and a walk while striking out six. Bauer has a 4.13 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP, and a 121/48 K/BB ratio in 124 1/3 innings this season. He will look to avoid a fourth consecutive loss when he takes on the Athletics in Oakland in his next start.
Jul 28 - 10:43 PM

Jason Kipnis went 3-for-4 with a double, but the Indians dropped Tuesday's contest to the Royals.

Kipnis couldn't be brought around to score as the Indians' 2-5 hitters combined to go 2-for-14. The Indians have dropped six games in a row, averaging 1.7 runs per game. But it's not the fault of Kipnis, who has an outstanding .330/.405/.485 triple-slash line on the year.
Jul 28 - 10:40 PM

Eric Hosmer was responsible for both runs as the Royals edged the Indians on Tuesday, finishing 3-for-4.

Hosmer broke a 0-0 tie in the fourth inning with an RBI single, then broke a 1-1 tie in the top of the ninth with a solo home run off of Trevor Bauer. He broke a 25-game homerless drought last week and now has three round-trippers in his last seven games. Hosmer has 11 home runs overall with 55 RBI and a .313/.372/.478 batting line.
Jul 28 - 10:35 PM

A.J. Ramos got into and out of danger in the ninth inning on Tuesday, closing out a 4-1 win versus the Nationals.

Ramos loaded the bases with one out on a double and two walks. He managed to get Yunel Escobar to ground into a game-ending double play. The right-hander did the same thing in an appearance on Thursday, but with no outs and still escaped. It's not the most efficient way to get saves, but at least he's getting them. Ramos is 17-for-21 in save situations on the year with a 1.44 ERA and a 55/14 K/BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings.
Jul 28 - 10:32 PM

Pablo Sandoval went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox.

Sandoval's two-run blast against White Sox starter Jeff Samardzija in the second inning was all the offense the Red Sox could muster until the ninth inning. The two-hit game was Sandoval's third in a row, raising his line to .263/.307/.382 with eight homers and 34 RBI.
