Vidal Nuno tossed eight innings of one-run ball Saturday in a tough-luck loss to the Rockies.
Nuno was fantastic, yielding only two hits and zero walks while striking out seven. One of those hits, however, was a Matt McBride solo home run. And the Arizona offense didn't offer any sort of support. Nuno has a stellar 3.23 ERA since joining the Snakes. He'll hope for a little more assistance next week in San Diego.
Kyle Ryan hurled six shutout innings Saturday as the Tigers won the second half of a doubleheader with the White Sox.
It was the 22-year-old left-hander's major league debut and he rose to the occasion, limiting Chicago to five hits and two walks over six scoreless frames. Ryan wasn't having a dominant season in the minors, so the Tigers probably won't go back to the well soon. But the performance Saturday was timely and impressive.
Chris Bassitt surrendered five earned runs in 6 1/3 innings Saturday as the White Sox dropped the second half of a doubleheader against the Tigers.
It was the 25-year-old's major league debut and he looked overmatched, yielding two runs in the top of the third inning and three runs in the top of the fourth. Bassitt has posted good numbers this year at the Double-A level, but he's not exactly a prospect.
White Sox optioned LHP Eric Surkamp to Triple-A Charlotte.
Surkamp has posted a 6.91 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 14 1/3 innings this season for the White Sox. The left-hander should be back at some point next week when rosters expand.
Red Sox acquired INFs Ivan DeJesus Jr. and Jemile Weeks from the Orioles for INFs Michael Almanzar and Kelly Johnson.
DeJesus, 27, was hitting .282/.358/.389 with five home runs and 56 RBI in 113 games this season for the Orioles' Triple-A team. He hasn't appeared in the majors since 2012 -- when he was a member of the Red Sox.
