The Yankees have moved Adam Warren to the bullpen.

Warren is the odd-man out now that Ivan Nova is back from the disabled list. It's an expected move, though CC Sabathia is probably more deserving to lose his rotation spot. Warren has a solid 3.59 ERA and 54/26 K/BB ratio in 82 2/3 innings over 14 starts this season.

Nathan Eovaldi will start Wednesday against the Angels.

In turn, Adam Warren will be moved to the bullpen. Eovaldi allowed two runs over six innings against the Astros in his last start and owns a 4.81 ERA and 60/22 K/BB ratio over 82 1/3 innings on the year.

Allen Webster took a no-decision, giving up four runs in 3 2/3 innings, but the Diamondbacks still managed to pull out a 10-6 win against the Dodgers on Monday.

Webster allowed three solo home runs in the fourth inning, proving to be his undoing. Two were back-to-back shots by Andre Ethier and Yasmani Grandal. The third was a tape-measure shot by Joc Pederson. Following that, Webster issued a walk and a single before getting yanked. All told, he gave up five hits, walked four, and struck out three. In four starts, Webster has a 7.11 ERA with a 1.68 WHIP and a 12/14 K/BB ratio over 19 innings. He's due to start at home against the Rockies next.

Yasmany Tomas homered and walked in five trips to the plate Monday as the Diamondbacks took down the Dodgers.

Tomas lined a two-run home run to left field in the sixth inning off of Yimi Garcia. It barely made it over the fence and was reviewed for fan interference, but was ultimately upheld. The power hasn't quite been there as often as the D'Backs would have liked, but Tomas has otherwise done a fine job at the plate in his first year in the majors, batting .314/.357/.440 with four home runs and 29 RBI.

Joc Pederson went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run but the Dodgers were outslugged by the Diamondbacks in Monday's loss.

Pederson hit a tape-measure blast to right-center in the fourth inning off of Allan Webster, one of three solo shots the Dodgers hit in the frame. The rookie is up to 20 home runs on the season along with 38 RBI and a .241/.384/.529 triple-slash line.

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a walk, a two-run single, and two stolen bases as the Diamondbacks pounded their way to a win over the Dodgers on Monday.

Goldschmidt is now on a 10-game hitting streak, extended with a single in the sixth inning just ahead of a Yasmany Tomas home run. Goldy then ripped a two-run single in the eighth to cap off a four-run frame. He's having a bonkers year, carrying a .352/.467/.637 triple-slash line with 20 home runs, 64 RBI, 15 stolen bases, 55 runs scored, and 60 walks.

Huston Street slammed the door on the Yankees in the ninth inning for his 22nd save as the Angels completed a 4-1 victory on Monday.

Street got Garrett Jones and Brian McCann to fly out for two quick outs, but Didi Gregorius singled to keep hope alive. The ever-dangerous Brett Gardner hit a fly out to end the game. Street is 22-for-25 picking up saves this year with a 2.20 ERA and a 33/9 K/BB ratio in 32 2/3 innings.

C.J. Wilson limited the Yankees to one run in six innings to pick up the win on Monday.

Wilson scattered five hits and a three walks while striking out five. A lot of credit has to go to center fielder Mike Trout, though, as he made a handful of outstanding catches to save Wilson's hide. The lefty lowered his ERA to 3.78 with the effort and has a 1.19 WHIP with an 89/32 K/BB ratio over 102 1/3 innings. He'll face the Rangers in Texas next.
Jun 30 - 1:11 AM

CC Sabathia yielded four runs in 7 1/3 innings in a losing effort against the Angels on Monday.

It was a reasonably solid effort, but the Yankees weren't able to back him with nearly enough run support. Sabathia gave up six hits and a walk while striking out five. Two of the runs came on solo home runs. The lefty holds a disappointing 5.59 ERA with a 1.40 WHIP and an 83/18 K/BB ratio in 95 innings. He'll look to rebound in a home start against the Rays next.
Jun 30 - 1:09 AM

Brett Gardner went 3-for-5 with two doubles, but the Yankees couldn't capitalize in Monday's loss to the Angels.

Gardner, leading off, wasn't able to be brought home by the Yankees' #2, 3, and 4 hitters, who combined to go 1-for-9. He's on a seven-game hitting streak now and has logged multiple hits in eight of his last 11 games. Gardner is having a monster season with a .305/.377/.502 batting line with nine home runs, 39 RBI, 58 runs scored, and 15 stolen bases.
Jun 30 - 1:07 AM

C.J. Cron went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, helping the Angels edge the Yankees on Monday.

Cron, recently recalled from Triple-A, drilled his second big league home run of the season in the seventh inning off of CC Sabathia to pad the Angels' lead to 4-1. He hasn't hit much in the majors this season, but has crushed Triple-A competition in two short stints.
Jun 30 - 1:04 AM

Mike Trout did it all to help the Angels beat the Yankees on Monday, homering, stealing a base, and playing stellar defense.

Trout broke a 1-1 tie in the bottom of the third inning with a solo home run off of CC Sabathia. He also stole his first base since May 22, though it didn't lead to a run. On the defensive side of things, he made a handful of terrific catches in support of starter C.J. Wilson. Trout, likely to start in center field for the AL All-Star team, is batting .300/.390/.583 with 20 home runs, 43 RBI, and nine stolen bases.
Jun 30 - 1:02 AM

Kendall Graveman silenced the Rockies with seven shutout innings, helping the Athletics to a 7-1 win on Monday.

Graveman scattered five hits and three walks while striking out three. All five hits were singles. The right-hander has been terrific since returning from the minor leagues in late May. Over his last eight starts, Graveman has a 20.1 ERA in 53 2/3 innings. He'll look to keep it going over the weekend with a home start against the Mariners.
