  • Cahill surrenders seven runs in loss to DET
    Trevor Cahill surrendered seven runs -- three earned -- over four innings Wednesday in a loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: It was an ugly game all around for the Diamondbacks, who lost 11-5. Cahill didn't walk a batter and struck out three, but the Detroit offense tagged him for eight hits. He's 1-7 with a 5.72 ERA and 1.71 WHIP this season.

  • Greg Holland earns 26th save of the season
    Greg Holland collected his 26th save of the season Wednesday in the Royals' defeat of the White Sox.

    Advice: Holland retired all three batters he faced -- two via strikeout. The dominant 28-year-old closer now boasts a 1.72 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and 56/10 K/BB ratio in 36 2/3 innings this season, and he's 26-for-27 in save chances.

    Twins designated RHP Matt Guerrier for assignment.

    Advice: Guerrier had a 3.86 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 12/10 K/BB ratio in 28 innings out of the Minnesota bullpen. The 35-year-old right-hander could draw interest on waivers.

  • Glen Perkins nails down 24th save
    Glen Perkins notched his 24th save of the season with a scoreless inning in Wednesday's win over the Indians.

    Advice: Carlos Santana smacked a double off the left field wall to lead off the inning, but Perkins retired the side with a flyout and pair of strikeouts to end the threat. The left-hander has been scored upon in just one of his last 10 appearances to lower his ERA to 2.76.

  • Sergio Santos outrighted to Triple-A
    Blue Jays sent RHP Sergio Santos outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

  • Phillippe Aumont recalled from Triple-A
    Phillies recalled RHP Phillippe Aumont from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Aumont has allowed four runs over 1 2/3 relief innings with the big club this season. The former top prospect still throws hard but control issues have kept him from reaching his potential.

  • Jeff Manship designated for assignment
    Phillies designated RHP Jeff Manship for assignment.

    Advice: Manship posted a 6.65 ERA over 20 relief appearances for the Phils. He shouldn't have trouble passing through waivers.

  • Chris Leroux called up by Yankees
    Yankees purchased the contract of RHP Chris Leroux from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Leroux was designated for assignment by the Yankees back in May after allowing five runs on five hits and a pair of walks in one inning of work. He's getting another chance now but will be used in low-leverage innings.

  • Kevin Gregg won't return when eligible
    Kevin Gregg (elbow) has yet to resume throwing.

    Advice: Gregg is eligible to return early next week but isn't expected to be ready at that time. The veteran reliever was placed on the disabled list shortly after the All-Star break with soreness in his pitching elbow.

  • Marlins still interested in RP Jim Johnson
    Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins "remain interested" in Jim Johnson.

    Advice: The Marlins nearly completed a deal for Johnson last month before opting for Bryan Morris instead. However, it appears they haven't given up on acquiring the struggling former closer, with Spencer saying the club has discussed sending pitching prospect Adam Conley to Oakland for the reliever. Johnson holds a 6.25 ERA with 23 walks in 40 innings this season and is making $10 million. The A's will have to pick up the bulk of the remainder of his contract in any trade.

  • Matt Lindstrom nearing rehab assignment
    White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Tuesday that Matt Lindstrom (foot) might begin a rehab assignment the first week of August.

    Advice: The Pale Hose had been hoping to get Lindstrom back in their bullpen in early August, but it sounds like it will be a little later than that. Lindstrom has made a quicker-than-expected return from May ankle surgery and could eventually recapture the White Sox' closer job.

  • Santiago tosses five shutout innings vs BAL
    Hector Santiago did not factor into the decision in Tuesday's game against the Orioles, throwing five scoreless innings and allowing two hits and three walks.

    Advice: While Santiago was able to keep the Orioles off the board, he had already thrown 99 pitches by the time the fifth inning was finished. The Angels have used him both out of the bullpen and in the rotation (thirteen starts in seventeen appearances). Despite the occasional struggle, he has a 4.02 ERA and has been a useful piece for the Halos. He'll take on the Tigers next time out.

  • Mejia notches 13th save in win over SEA
    Jenrry Mejia pitched a scoreless ninth inning to pick up his thirteenth save of the year on Tuesday against the Mariners.

    Advice: Mejia did walk one batter, but otherwise put up zeroes across the stat-line. The scoreless inning dropped his ERA to 3.80. While the ERA doesn't look particularly sparkling for a closer, Mejia has only given up one run over his last ten appearances. He also has 66 strikeouts in just over 66 innings and is 13-for-15 in save chances since assuming the closer's role.

  • Petit takes no-decision in a marathon win
    Yusmeiro Petit went home with a no-decision, allowing five runs in five innings as the Giants outlasted the Phillies in a 14-inning win on Tuesday.

    Advice: Petit was starting in place of the injured Matt Cain. The top of the Phillies' lineup had his number, particularly in a three-run fifth-inning which included a Jimmy Rollins two-run home run. Overall, Petit yielded seven hits and two walks while striking out five. Pitching mostly out of the bullpen, Petit has a 4.24 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 71/17 K/BB ratio. He'll start against the Dodgers at home on Sunday.
    Yesterday, 10:09 pm
  • Anderson holds Tigers to two runs over six IP
    Chase Anderson lasted six innings against the Tigers on Tuesday, scattering five hits while striking out five and walking three.

    Advice: The damage came on a first inning Miguel Cabrera RBI single and a third inning wild pitch that allowed Austin Jackson to score. Otherwise, Anderson was effective. While the game ended up being decided by the bullpen, this marks back-to-back quality starts for Anderson, whose ERA sits at a solid 3.58. He'll try to keep it going against the Reds in his next outing.
    Yesterday, 10:06 pm
  • Chen holds White Sox to one run in victory
    Bruce Chen held the White Sox to one run over five innings in a win Tuesday.

    Advice: Chen's only mistake was a home run by Adam Dunn, but the left-hander limited the Sox to four hits and no runs over the rest of his time on the mound. It was his first win since April 19 and just his second win overall. Chen has filled in admirably in Jason Vargas' absence, but with Vargas nearing a return Chen will soon fade back into fantasy irrelevance.

  • Soria blows save as Rangers fall in 14 frames
    Joakim Soria blew his second save of the season, forking over a run in the bottom of the 13th inning as the Rangers went on to lose in 14.

    Advice: The Rangers had taken a 1-0 lead on J.P. Arencibia's 13th-inning solo home run, but Soria immediately got into trouble, allowing a lead-off double to Brett Gardner in the bottom half. Jacoby Ellsbury later knocked Gardner in with a single. Soria is now 17-for-19 in save chances with a 2.70 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, and a 42/4 K/BB ratio.
    Yesterday, 9:10 pm
  • Blue Jays designate Santos for assignment
    Blue Jays designated RHP Sergio Santos for assignment.

    Advice: Santos had posted a dreadful 7.78 ERA and 2.09 WHIP in 19 2/3 innings this season out of the Blue Jays' bullpen. But the 31-year-old right-hander registered a 1.75 ERA and 0.58 WHIP in 25 2/3 frames last season and could draw interest from teams on the waiver wire.

  • Petit to start for Giants on Tuesday vs. PHI
    Yusmeiro Petit will start for the Giants on Tuesday night against the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.

    Advice: Petit is filling in for Matt Cain, who was placed on the disabled list Monday morning with right elbow inflammation. Petit, 29, has a solid 3.86 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 66/15 K/BB ratio in 63 innings (five starts and 21 relief appearances) this season for San Francisco. He makes for a decent streamer in deep mixed fantasy leagues.

  • Athletics still eager to trade Jim Johnson
    According to John Hickey of the Oakland Tribune, the Athletics remain eager to find a new home for former closer Jim Johnson.

    Advice: The catch is that the A's don't want to have to eat any of Johnson's $10 million contract. With a 6.25 ERA, 1.96 WHIP and 28/23 K/BB ratio through his 40 1/3 innings on the season, it's unlikely that any interested parties are going to come calling to acquire the veteran right-hander's services.
    Sunday, 6:49 pm
  • Mets designate Buddy Carlyle for assignment
    Mets designated RHP Buddy Carlyle for assignment.

    Advice: The 36-year-old did a nice job in his limited time with the Mets, allowing just one run over seven innings (1.29 ERA) while posting a 1.00 WHIP and 7/3 K/BB ratio. It's possible that he could generate interest on waivers from a team looking for bullpen depth.

  • Matt Lindstrom to face hitters soon
    Matt Lindstrom (ankle) will throw live batting practice later this week.

    Advice: Lindstrom threw another 30-pitch bullpen session Saturday and is scheduled for another side session Tuesday before then being cleared to face hitters. The reliever has made a quicker-than-expected return from May ankle surgery and is aiming to rejoin the White Sox' bullpen in early August. Lindstrom seems likely to eventually rejoin the closer gig, so stash him now if someone dropped him.

  • Angels edge Mariners 3-2 in 16 innings
    Hector Santiago finished up with 2 2/3 scoreless innings for the win as the Angels beat the Mariners 3-2 in 16 innings on Friday.

    Advice: Several teams still have expanded bullpens right now after the All-Star break, and the Angels needed theirs tonight. Eight relievers combined on 10 scoreless innings after Jered Weaver allowed two runs over six frames, and the Angels finally broke through when pinch-hitter Efren Navarro singled in Mike Trout in the 16th. It was just Santiago's second straight win after seven consecutive losses to begin the season.
    Saturday, 12:29 am
  • Jenrry Mejia picks up 11th save
    Jenrry Mejia notched his 11th save with a scoreless ninth Friday against the Padres.

    Advice: Mejia gave up an infield single with two outs, but he quickly got a groundout to end it. He's now 11-for-13 in save chances since assuming the closer's role.
    Friday, 10:27 pm
  • Trevor Cahill gives up three runs to Cubs
    Trevor Cahill yielded three runs in five innings Friday against the Cubs in his return to the Diamondbacks rotation.

    Advice: Cahill allowed four hits and two walks. Unfortunately, one of the walks and three of the hits came in the fourth, leading to a three-run inning. Still, it wasn't a disastrous outing. He'll get to make at least a couple of more starts before his status is reevaluated.
    Friday, 10:09 pm
  • Kevin Gregg (elbow) placed on DL
    Marlins placed RHP Kevin Gregg on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 14, with right elbow inflammation.

    Advice: Gregg evidently must have felt something during his final relief appearance before the All-Star break. It's not clear how long he'll be sidelined.

  • Tigers in 'ongoing discussions' for Soria
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Tigers are having "ongoing discussions" with the Rangers regarding Joakim Soria.

    Advice: The Angels and Blue Jays have also been connected to Soria. The Tigers are committed to keeping Joe Nathan in the closer role, so Soria would be used as a setup man if acquired. They're also looking at former Tiger and current Padre Joaquin Benoit. The veteran reliever boasts a 2.67 ERA and 40/4 K/BB ratio over 30 1/3 innings this season for the Rangers.
