    Nick Hundley went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Hundley took Mariners starter Vidal Nuno deep in the fourth inning for his ninth home run of the season. The move to the Rockies has definitely aided Hundley's offense, as he's now hitting .303/.343/.472 with 39 RBI and 40 runs scored on the season. Yesterday, 10:57 pm
  • Shoemaker stays strong, tosses 6 scoreless
    Matt Shoemaker continued to pitch well, tossing six scoreless innings in a no-decision as the Angels lost in 12 innings to the Indians on Tuesday.

He last allowed a run in the first inning on July 12, a span of 19 innings. Shoemaker now has a 4.01 ERA, a 1.22 WHIP, and a 101/27 K/BB ratio over 110 innings. He'll get the White Sox in a road start next. Yesterday, 10:46 pm
  • Braun reaches base four times in Brewers' win
    Ryan Braun reached base four times Tuesday, going 2-for-2 with two walks and two runs scored as the Brewers downed the Padres 4-1.

    Advice: Braun also stole his 16th base of the season in the game. The outfielder has four doubles in his last three games, and he's scored a run in each of his last five. Braun is now hitting .273/.345/.497 with 19 homers, 63 RBI and 63 runs scored overall. Yesterday, 10:32 pm
  • K-Rod works perfect ninth to earn 24th save
    Francisco Rodriguez worked a perfect ninth inning against the Padres on Tuesday to earn his 24th save of the season.

    Advice: Rodriguez stayed put at the trade deadline, and he was called on Tuesday for his first save chance since the deadline passed. He had no problem closing out the Padres, striking out one in the perfect inning. The right-hander now has a 1.42 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 43/9 K/BB ratio over 38 innings this year. Yesterday, 10:24 pm
  • Nelson yields just an unearned run in victory
    Jimmy Nelson allowed only an unearned run over 6 2/3 innings in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: Nelson gave up three hits and a walk while striking out four in the win. It was his third straight start without allowing an earned run, a stretch that spans 20 2/3 innings. Nelson moved to 9-9 with the win, his sixth in his last seven decisions, and the scoreless streak lowered his ERA to 3.57. Nelson will try to keep it going Sunday against the Cardinals. Yesterday, 10:13 pm
  • Cashner takes 11th loss despite decent outing
    Andrew Cashner gave up just two runs over six innings but took the loss against the Brewers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Cashner was actually fortunate to get out with just two runs allowed, as he yielded eight hits and walked four over his six innings of work. Cashner also struck out five in the outing. Even with the decent showing, the loss dropped Cashner to 4-11 with a 4.08 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. He's got a good shot at getting his fifth win Sunday against the Phillies. Yesterday, 10:09 pm
  • Semien clubs three-run homer as A's top O's
    Marcus Semien went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Orioles.

    Advice: Semien broke the game open in the sixth inning, hitting his three-run shot to left-center off of reliever Chaz Roe to send the Athletics' lead to 5-0. It's his second home run in four games, but he's been mediocre offensively overall, batting .245/.292/.382 with 10 home runs and 26 RBI. Yesterday, 10:06 pm
    12:35 pm vs Bal
  • Bassitt all bite vs. Orioles with 7 scoreless
    Chris Bassitt got the win versus the Orioles on Tuesday after firing seven scoreless innings.

    Advice: The right-hander scattered five hits and two walks while striking out seven. Bassitt has been fantastic since joining the rotation at the end of June, posting a 2.43 ERA with a 26/5 K/BB ratio in six starts spanning 37 innings. Oddly enough, it's his first win. He'll toe the rubber at home against the Astros in his next start. Yesterday, 10:01 pm
  • Fielder hits 16th homer, Rangers best Astros
    Prince Fielder hit his 16th home run of the season as the Rangers beat the Astros 4-3 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Fielder hit nine homers in May but had hit just five since June 1 prior to Tuesday. The solo homer was his only hit in four at-bats. In his comeback season, the first baseman is batting .329/.398/.502 with 62 RBI and 53 runs scored on the year. His .900 OPS is eighth-best in the AL. Yesterday, 9:59 pm
  • Gomez hits first homer as member of Astros
    Carlos Gomez went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a loss to the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Advice: The dinger was the first for Gomez since being dealt to the Astros as the deadline. He's hitting .348 with four RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base through five games in the American League. Gomez should continue to produce good numbers in the middle of the Astros lineup going forward. Yesterday, 9:54 pm
  • Gallardo earns eighth win despite short start
    Yovani Gallardo lasted just five innings but stuck around long enough to earn the win Tuesday, holding the Astros to three runs in a victory.

    Advice: Gallardo gave up just four hits and walked two, but he needed 98 pitches to get through five innings. The win was Gallardo's first since June 27. The right-hander is now 8-9 with a 3.47 ERA and 1.33 WHIP through 23 starts. He'll look to make it two in a row Tuesday at the Twins. Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • Cabrera hits one of four Rays' homers in win
    Asdrubal Cabrera went 2-for-3 with a home run and three runs scored as the Rays trounced the White Sox 11-3 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Cabrera hit one of the Rays' four homers on the night, taking reliever Daniel Webb deep in the seventh inning. It was his third consecutive two-hit game and extended his hitting streak to a modest eight games. Cabrera has raised his average 21 points in that span, and he's now hitting .241/.294/.390 with seven homers on the season. Yesterday, 9:18 pm
  • Kiermaier has three hits, two RBI against Sox

    5:10 pm vs SD
  • Preston Guilmet optioned to Triple-A
    Brewers optioned RHP Preston Guilmet to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Claimed off waivers last week, Guilmet was rocked for six runs over an inning of work in his last appearance with the Brew Crew. Tyler Cravy is taking his spot in the bullpen. Yesterday, 9:00 pm
  • Braun doubles twice, notches three total hits
    Ryan Braun went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: Braun's been on a gentle power tear over his last 10 games, notching three homers and Sunday's pair of doubles. He's hitting .269/.338/.490 with 19 homers, 63 RBI and 15 steals this season. Given that he could not buy an extra-base hit through the first month of the year, his overall power numbers are very respectable. Sunday, 2:46 pm
  • Gomez drives in first two runs since trade
    Carlos Gomez went 1-for-4 with a two-run single in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Gomez took an 0-for-5 in his first game with the Astros on Friday, but he's come through in each of the last two games, notching three hits on Saturday and a two-run single on Sunday. He hit .262/.328/.423 with the Brewers, but if he's able to stay healthy, we could see a rejuvenated hitter as the Astros battle for a playoff spot. Sunday, 2:39 pm
  • Marcus Semien homers, walks against Indians
    Marcus Semien homered, walked and scored twice against the Indians on Saturday.

    Advice: Semien has more errors (29) than RBI (23) or walks (25) this year, yet he still has an OPS (.670) right at the league average for shortstops. It's about as weird of a bad season as one could dream up. Saturday, 10:52 pm
    12:35 pm vs Bal
  • Braun smacks solo homer Friday
    Ryan Braun smacked a solo homer Friday against the Cubs.

    Advice: His first-inning blast against Jason Hammel was the only offense of the game for the Brewers. Braun had a fairly quiet July overall, but he has three home runs over his last seven games. Friday, 10:15 pm
  • Yovani Gallardo staying with Rangers
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Rangers will keep Yovani Gallardo.

    Advice: They entertained offers but ultimately decided they'd rather hang on to him an make him a qualifying offer after the season if he doesn't re-sign. Gallardo has really struggled his last three times out, which could have affected the quality of offers for him. Friday, 1:02 pm
  • Rangers leaning towards keeping Gallardo
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Rangers "appear to be planning to hold" Yovani Gallardo.

    Advice: They've been telling teams all along that they'd rather keep Gallardo and make him a qualifying offer over the winter if they're unable to get a trade proposal they like. Evidently teams haven't met the asking price. The Dodgers, Cubs and Blue Jays have been linked to the right-hander. Friday, 12:06 pm
  • Brewers claim Preston Guilmet off waivers
    Brewers claimed RHP Preston Guilmet off waivers from the Dodgers.

    Advice: Guilmet has allowed three runs over 5 1/3 relief innings during his brief time in the majors this season. He'll join the Brews' bullpen. Friday, 10:28 am
  • Dodgers in 'ongoing talks' for SP Gallardo
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Dodgers are in "ongoing trade talks" with the Rangers involving Yovani Gallardo.

    Advice: ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reported earlier Friday that the chances of a Gallardo deal are "50/50." The Dodgers' rotation is full following the additions of Alex Wood and Mat Latos, so the club would figure to make an additional trade should they acquire Gallardo. Friday, 8:04 am
  • '50/50' chance Yovani Gallardo is traded
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick hears that there's a "50/50" chance of Yovani Gallardo being traded Friday.

    Advice: He says that the Dodgers, Cubs and Blue Jays are still "in the mix" for the right-hander. The Rangers are open to dealing Gallardo, but Crasnick says they'll just keep him if they don't get a proposal they like and then make him a qualifying offer after the season. Friday, 7:25 am
  • Jimmy Nelson goes seven scoreless
    Jimmy Nelson pitched seven shutout innings for the second straight start Thursday in a no-decision against the Cubs.

    Advice: This one was better than last week's, in which he allowed five hits and struck out five. Tonight, he allowed just two hits and struck out eight. It's certainly encouraging for the Brewers that Nelson is in the midst of a second-half surge, but we're still not sure he has a lot to offer mixed leaguers, especially with runs and wins becoming tougher to come by. Thursday, 10:24 pm
  • Matt Shoemaker goes seven scoreless
    Matt Shoemaker blanked the Astros for seven innings, allowing just three hits and striking out seven, in a no-decision Thursday.

    Advice: Shoemaker was supposed to be bumped from the Angels rotation by now. Instead, he's back looking like a legitimate mixed-league SP with his performance of late. It's going to leave the Angels with a very difficult call to make on Jered Weaver. Their current five would seem to be their best five. Thursday, 9:48 pm
  • Bassitt only gets 1 run support again in loss
    Chris Bassitt gave up three earned runs across seven frames in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Indians.

    Advice: Bassitt surrendered six hits and one walk while punching out six. It wasn't an altogether bad outing, but life isn't fair: Bassitt has received five runs of support combined in five starts for Oakland. That helps explain why he's 0-4 despite a 3.10 ERA. Thursday, 9:34 pm
  • Five teams in the mix for Yovani Gallardo
    Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Cubs, Blue Jays, Dodgers, Yankees and Giants are all in the mix to acquire Yovani Gallardo from the Rangers.

    Advice: As perhaps the top hurler left on the open market, the price for Gallardo has likely risen now that Johnny Cueto, David Price and Cole Hamels have already been dealt. With the recent injuries in the Yankees rotation, they may be the most desperate club at the moment. Expect the bidding to escalate quickly. Thursday, 6:58 pm
  • Astros snag Carlos Gomez in six-player deal
    Astros acquired OF Carlos Gomez and RHP Mike Fiers from the Brewers for OF Domingo Santana, OF Brett Phillips, LHP Josh Hader, RHP Adrian Houser and international bonus slot #76.

    Advice: The dynamic 29-year-old outfielder was nearly traded to the Mets on Wednesday evening before the deal fell apart due to financial issues. Their loss, is a huge gain for the Astros though who will add another monster bat to an already dangerous lineup. In 74 games with the Brewers this season, Gomez was hitting .262/.328/.423 with eight homers, 43 RBI and seven stolen bases. Thursday, 5:08 pm
  • Astros acquire Carlos Gomez from Brewers
    Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Astros have acquired Carlos Gomez and Mike Fiers from the Brewers.

    Advice: The Brewers will net several prospects in the deal. Gomez was nearly traded to the Mets on Wednesday before the deal broke down over financial issues, and it appears that their loss is the Astros gain. It's a very strong move for the Astros and should put them as the favorites to capture the American League West. Thursday, 4:37 pm
  • Mets light up Cashner for seven runs
    Andrew Cashner struggled mightily at times in a no-decision against the Mets on Thursday afternoon, yielding seven runs (five earned) on six hits over 5 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Cashner struck out three and walked two in the contest. The Mets scored a solitary run against him in the first inning on a Daniel Murphy sacrifice fly, then brought home three more runs in the fifth, all on a Curtis Granderson home run. They would drive him from the game in the following frame, but he wiggled off the hook and picked up a no-decision, thanks to the combustive properties of the Mets' bullpen. The 28-year-old right-hander holds decent, if unspectacular, numbers overall, including a 4.13 ERA and 1.32 WHIP. Assuming he doesn't move at the trade deadline, Cashner's scheduled to face the Brewers in a road outing next time he toes the rubber. Thursday, 3:34 pm
  • Carlos Gomez trade fell apart over money?
    According to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Carlos Gomez trade to the Mets broke down primarily over financial issues.

    Advice: FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported late Wednesday night that the proposal fell apart because of Gomez's hip, but agent Scott Boras and Brewers GM Doug Melvin are vehemently rejecting that angle. It should be noted that there's posturing going on here from all sides -- the Brewers want other teams to believe Gomez is fully healthy, and questioning the Mets' desire to spend is an easy alibi. The 29-year-old center fielder is still very much on the trade block, but talks have obviously been called off with the Mets. Thursday, 8:27 am
  • Blue Jays interested in SP Yovani Gallardo's T.R. Sullivan reports that there's a possibility of Yovani Gallardo being traded to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Texas just beefed up its rotation with the Cole Hamels trade, but the club is still buried in the American League Wild Card race and could sell some parts. Gallardo is due to become a free agent this winter. If the price is right, it sounds like the Rangers will move him. Thursday, 7:46 am
  • Hip issue caused Mets to back out on Gomez
    Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Mets backed out of the proposed trade to acquire Carlos Gomez from the Brewers due to concern over his hip issue.

    Advice: Scott Boras, the agent for Gomez, has stated that his client is "injury-free" and that he has "no problem whatsoever" with his hip. The Mets will have to continue shopping elsewhere to acquire the big bat they would like to add to the outfield. Wednesday, 9:17 pm
  • Rangers remain open to dealing Gallardo
    According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, the Rangers remain open to the idea of trading Yovani Gallardo.

    Advice: Even though Wednesday's acquisition of Cole Hamels sets the Rangers up to compete in 2016, Gallardo is an impending free agent and could net the club a nice return in the trade market. The veteran right-hander owns a 3.19 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 83/46 K/BB ratio over 121 1/3 innings on the season. Wednesday, 8:47 pm
  • Carlos Gomez trade will not happen
    Mets general manager Sandy Alderson clarified late Wednesday that a trade for Carlos Gomez from the Brewers will not be happening.

    Advice: The deal had been agreed upon by both sides, pending physicals, so the most logical explanation is that something came back with the physical of Zack Wheeler that the Brewers didn't like. Well, it was fun while it lasted. The Mets are likely to turn their attention to other outfield targets once again, perhaps Yoenis Cespedes of the Tigers or Justin Upton from San Diego. Wednesday, 8:33 pm
  • Alderson: Gomez trade will not transpire
    Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said late Wednesday that the rumored deal to acquire Carlos Gomez from the Brewers "will not transpire".

    Advice: The reported deal had the Mets sending Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores to the Brewers in exchange for the outfielder. The deal was reportedly pending physicals, and still could be, but it doesn't sound as if it's a sure thing at this point. Stay tuned. Wednesday, 8:13 pm
  • Mets agree to acquire Carlos Gomez from MIL
    Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Mets have agreed to a deal with the Brewers to acquire Carlos Gomez.

    Advice: As rumored, Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores will be headed back to Milwaukee in the trade. The deal is done pending physicals, so don't expect an official announcement to take place until Thursday. Gomez returns to the organization where he began his big league career as a 21-year-old in 2007. Wednesday, 6:12 pm
  • Brewers have discussed Wheeler and Flores
    Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Brewers have discussed a deal involving Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores in exchange for Carlos Gomez.

    Advice: Rosenthal again cautions that there are no indications that a deal between the two clubs is close, just that talks are ongoing. The Brewers a reportedly seeking a "top four" starter in return for Gomez, and with the Mets wealth of young pitching they certainly have the pieces to make a deal work. It just depends on what they are willing to give up. Wednesday, 5:25 pm
  • Asdrubal Cabrera homers in Rays' loss
    Asdrubal Cabrera belted a solo homer in Wednesday's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Cabrera's solo shot in the fifth inning represented the lone run for the Rays. He also gave it back and then some, as a crucial error by the shortstop in the seventh led to the Tigers' only two runs. Cabrera is batting just .231/.281/.373 for Tampa this season. Wednesday, 11:54 am
  • Ryan Braun (back) returns to Brewers' lineup
    Ryan Braun (back) is back in the Brewers' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Braun missed the previous two contests with lower back tightness but is feeling well enough to give it a go. The former MVP is hitting .268/.338/.487 with 18 homers and 16 steals this season. Wednesday, 9:54 am
  • Kevin Kiermaier (eye) returns to action
    Kevin Kiermaier (eye) went hitless but had a sac fly in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Kiermaier had to leave Monday's game after suffering a scratch in his left eye, but he'll be OK. The outfielder is hitting .245/.280/.407 with four homers and 11 steals this season. Wednesday, 5:47 am
  • Rodriguez sets down Giants for 23rd save
    Francisco Rodriguez earned his 23rd save with a scoreless ninth inning in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Giants.

    Advice: Rodriguez allowed a harmless two-out single to Brandon Belt before getting Brandon Crawford to strike out to end the game. The right-hander is perfect in 23 save chances with a 1.50 ERA and a 40/9 K/BB ratio in 36 innings. Rodriguez is one of many Brewers who could be moved to a new location by the trade deadline on Friday. Tuesday, 10:01 pm
  • Asdrubal Cabrera activated from DL
    Rays activated SS Asdrubal Cabrera from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Cabrera missed just one day more than the minimum with a strained right hamstring. He's hitting .223/.275/.352 for the Rays this season. Tuesday, 7:03 pm
  • Ryan Braun (back) held out again Tuesday
    Ryan Braun (back) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: It's the second straight game he's missed with lower back tightness. Braun is considered day-to-day. Gerardo Parra is in right field Tuesday, with Khris Davis covering left. Tuesday, 3:25 pm
  • Cabrera (hamstring) to be activated Tuesday
    Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list prior to Tuesday's game.

    Advice: Cabrera played in his first rehab game with High-A Charlotte on Monday and evidently that's all he needed. The veteran shortstop will have missed just one day more than the minimum with a strained right hamstring. Monday, 7:43 pm
  • Ryan Braun scratched with back tightness
    Ryan Braun was a late scratch from Monday's game with lower back tightness.

    Advice: He should be considered day-to-day. Gerardo Parra moved over to right field in Braun's spot, with Khris Davis entering the lineup in left field. Monday, 6:57 pm
  • Kevin Kiermaier exits with eye abrasion
    Kevin Kiermaier left Monday's game against the Tigers with a minor abrasion of his left eye.

    Advice: It's unclear how it happened, but Kiermaier should be alright in a day or two. He had an RBI double in three plate appearances before exiting. Monday, 6:48 pm
  • Asdrubal (hamstring) ready for rehab games
    Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) is set to begin a rehab assignment Monday night with High-A Port Charlotte.

    Advice: Cabrera, who's been out since July 12 with a strained right hamstring, will play between five and seven innings in his first rehab game. The expectation is that his rehab assignment will be a short one. "He's a veteran guy, so he gives us as good a sense as anybody as to when he thinks he's ready," manager Kevin Cash said Sunday. "But I know he's itching to get back." Monday, 7:00 am
  • Dodgers view Gallardo as secondary option
    Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports that the Dodgers currently view Yovani Gallardo as a secondary option if they are unable to land Cole Hamels or David Price.

    Advice: It's a near certainty that the Rangers deal the right-hander before next week's deadline, and they may not be able to wait for the rest of the pitching market to play out before pulling the trigger. Jul 26, 1:17 pm
  • Gallardo surrenders five runs in no-decision
    Yovani Gallardo allowed five earned runs in four innings Saturday in a no-decision versus the Angels.

    Advice: Texas won the game with a three-run top of the eighth inning. Gallardo was very little help, coughing up eight hits and three walks in a crucial showcase start. The 29-year-old right-hander is one of the more talked-about players on the trade block and could be done in a Rangers uniform. His ERA is back above 3.00. Jul 25, 9:53 pm
