Jose De Leon tallied 13 strikeouts over 7 2/3 scoreless innings Sunday with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

De Leon walked none and yielded just four hits in the brilliant outing, which helped the OKC Dodgers clinch their second straight Pacific Coast League American Northern Division title. The 24-year-old right-hander now boasts a 2.61 ERA, 0.938 WHIP, and 111/20 K/BB ratio in 86 1/3 innings (16 starts) this season at Triple-A. It's a surprise he's not already in the majors. Maybe it will happen next month.

Pirates activated RHP Tyler Glasnow from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Indianapolis.

This might be nothing more than a procedural move with major league rosters due to expand September 1. Glasnow walked three but struck out six over three scoreless innings last Monday with Double-A Altoona. It's not clear whether his next start will be in Indianapolis or with Pittsburgh. The talented 23-year-old been out since July 24 because of right shoulder discomfort.

According to FOX Sports' Jon Morosi, Tim Tebow's baseball workout Tuesday in Los Angeles will be attended by scouts from "roughly half" of the 30 major league teams.

Tebow is a serious guy and has been training in Arizona and Southern California for nearly a year, but the fact remains that he's a 29-year-old who hasn't played competitive baseball since high school. The former NFL quarterback and 2007 Heisman Trophy winner faces incredibly long odds of even lasting with a low-level minor league club. One scout told ESPN.com last week that Tebow's swing is so long it might "take out the front row." That's not a good thing.

Brandon Belt (neck) went 2-for-4 with a triple, an RBI, a walk, and a run scored in his return to the Giants' lineup Sunday against the Braves.

Belt was a late scratch Saturday due to a stiff neck. It obviously wasn't anything serious. The 28-year-old first baseman is batting .277/.390/.477 with 14 homers and 66 RBI in 126 games this season for San Francisco.

Raul Mondesi delivered a three-run triple in the sixth inning, propelling the Royals to a 10-4 victory over the Red Sox on Sunday night in Boston.

The Royals entered the sixth inning trailing 4-2, but erupted for eight runs in the frame, highlighted by Mondesi's bases-clearing triple that put them ahead to stay. Penciled in as the club's starting second baseman for the remainder of the season, Mondesi is hitting .189/.232/.300 with a homer and 10 RBI in his limited action this season.

David Ortiz crushed his 31st home run of the year on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Red Sox to victory over the Royals.

Big Papi's solo shot ignited a three-run rally in the fourth inning that briefly gave the Red Sox a 4-2 lead, but that would wind up being the extent of their offense. Ortiz finished the night 1-for-4 and is now slashing .319/.407/.633 with 31 bombs and 101 RBI in his farewell tour.

Eduardo Rodriguez was knocked around in Sunday's loss to the Royals, allowing five runs on four hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Rodriguez struggled with his command in the contest, issuing four walks while striking just one. It was his first start since August 16 due to discomfort he experienced in his left hamstring and the left-hander appeared a bit rusty. He'll bring a disappointing 5.35 ERA and 1.41 WHIP into Saturday's matchup against the Athletics in Oakland.
Aug 28 - 11:37 PM

Yordano Ventura couldn't make it out of the fifth inning in Sunday's start against the Red Sox, allowing four runs (three earned) on seven hits.

Ventura also walked a pair and struck out just one. David Ortiz tagged him for a solo homer in the fourth inning, then the Red Sox added three runs in the fifth to chase the right-hander. It has been a very disappointing season for Ventura who owns a 4.33 ERA and 1.35 WHIP across 149 2/3 innings. He'll hope for better results when he squares off against the Tigers at home on Saturday.

Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports that Homer Bailey is dealing with right biceps tendinitis.

Bailey left Sunday's debacle of a start after just one inning, and now we know it wasn't just ineffectiveness that led to the early hook. The good news is that his elbow feels fine, though the Reds may opt to skip his next start just to err on the side of caution.

Yasmany Tomas belted his 27th home run of the year on Sunday, powering the Diamondbacks in an 11-2 thrashing of the Reds.

Tomas clubbed his three-run homer in the sixth inning, increasing the D'Backs advantage to 9-2. What's even more impressive, is they did the thrashing without Paul Goldschmidt and Jean Segura in the lineup on Sunday. Tomas finished the afternoon 1-for-2 and is now slashing .264/.309/.517 with the aforementioned 27 homers and 64 RBI.
Aug 28 - 10:00 PM

Archie Bradley logged a quality start in Sunday's victory over the Reds, allowing just two runs on five hits over six innings.

Bradley struck out three and didn't walk a batter in the contest. All of the damage against him came in the second inning, where Brandon Phillips and Scott Schebler blasted solo home runs. Now 5-8 on the season, he'll look to further improve upon a 4.95 ERA and 1.53 WHIP when he takes on the Rockies in Colorado on Sunday.
Aug 28 - 9:57 PM

Brandon Phillips belted his ninth home run of the season as the Reds were clobbered by the Diamondbacks on Sunday afternoon in Arizona.

His solo shot off of Archie Bradley got the Reds on the board in the second inning. Phillips finished the afternoon 1-for-3 and is now hitting .286/.322/.410 with nine long balls and 53 RBI on the year.
Aug 28 - 9:47 PM

Homer Bailey was demolished again in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks, allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits in just one inning of work.

Bailey didn't walk a batter or record a strikeout in his brief outing. Inconsistency is to be expected when a pitcher returns from Tommy John surgery, and Bailey has certainly shown that. He now owns a disappointing 6.65 ERA and 1.83 WHIP in 23 innings on the year. He'll take on the Cardinals his next time out on Saturday.
Aug 28 - 9:41 PM

Adrian Gonzalez drove home a run with a fielder's choice in the eighth inning on Sunday, leading the Dodgers to a 1-0 victory over the Cubs.

Gonzalez also had a pair of singles on the afternoon, finishing the day 2-for-4 with the game's lone RBI. He has been on a tear in recent weeks, raising his season slash to .298/.364/.456 to go along with 16 homers and 74 RBI.
Aug 28 - 8:09 PM

Brock Stewart looked fantastic in a spot start against the Cubs on Sunday, hurling five shutout innings in a no-decision.

Stewart was on a limited pitch count in the ballgame and needed 80 pitches to get through his five frames. Four Dodgers relievers picked it up from there, combining with Stewart to shut out one of the top offenses in all of baseball. It's likely that he'll stick around in a long relief capacity for the duration of the season.
