• Jesús Tinoco fans two in successful run as opener
    Serving as the opener in Tuesday's win over the Mariners, Jesús Tinoco struck out two and walked one over two scoreless innings.

    Advice: Tinoco was not completely perfect during his opening performance, but close enough. In 14 appearances with the big league club this season, the 27-year-old right-hander holds a sharp 1.53 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 15/8 K/BB ratio.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 2 minutes ago
     
  • Robbie Ray fans eight into sixth inning of defeat
    Robbie Ray allowed two runs on six hits over 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: Bummer for Ray, who pitched well but was unable to come away with the end win. The 2021 AL Cy Young winner struck out eight and walked two on the evening. Josh Jung proved to be his nemesis in this one, with Jung blasting him for a solo homer in the top of the second inning and an RBI single in the top of the sixth inning. With just one start remaining on the regular-season schedule -- a home showdown with the A's -- Ray now owns a 3.58 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 209/59 K/BB ratio across 31 starts covering 183 1/3 frames.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 2 minutes ago

  • Jimmy Herget records seventh save as Halos top A's
    Jimmy Herget registered his seventh save of the season after tossing  a perfect ninth inning in Tuesday's win over the A's.

    Advice: Herget came on for the top of the ninth with the Angels holding a 4-3 advantage. He kept the scoreboard still over his inning of work, recording the final three outs sans issue. With the lockdown ninth, Herget improved to 7-of-10 in save chances this season while working to a 2.33 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 61/15 K/BB ratio across 46 appearances.

  • Shohei Ohtani doubles, singles in win over A's
    Shohei Ohtani went 2-for-4 with a double in Tuesday's win over the A's.

    Advice: Ohtani worked his 29th double of the season in the 4-3 win. The 2021 AL MVP is once again in the hunt for that award as we pull into the final week-plus of the season. The two-way superstar is slashing .273/.358/.532 with 34 homers, 93 RBI and 11 steals across 553 at-bats while pitching to a 2.47 ERA in 26 starts. NBCSportsEDGE.com 24 minutes ago

  • No fractures in Corey Seager's forearm after HBP
    Corey Seager does not have any fractures in his left forearm, per Rangers interim manager Tony Beasley.

    Advice: That's obviously good news after he got hit by a Matthew Boyd fastball in the eighth inning of Tuesday night's win over Seattle. Seager does have a bad bruise and will probably sit out Wednesday, but he should be available again to the Rangers at some point in their final stretch of games. NBCSportsEDGE.com 24 minutes ago

  • A.J. Puk saddled with loss after allowing late run
    A.J. Puk allowed one run on one hit over an inning in Tuesday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Puk came in for the bottom of the eighth inning looking to keep the score deadlocked at 3-3, but he proved unable to get the job done, ultimately surrendering a go-ahead RBI single to Jo Adell. In 63 1/3 innings this season, the 27-year-old reliever owns a 3.27 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 73/20 K/BB ratio. Puk has now surrendered at least one run in four of his last seven appearances.

  • Nick Allen posts two-run double against Angels
    Nick Allen went 2-for-4 with a two-run double in Tuesday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Allen came through with a two-run double off Patrick Sandoval in the top of the second inning to boost the A's to an early 3-0 lead, albeit one which would not even last through the bottom of the frame. Through 273 at-bats this season, rookie shortstop Allen is slashing a modest .212/.261/.289 with three homers, 16 RBI and three steals.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 36 minutes ago

  • Angels DFA outfielder Magneuris Sierra on Tues.
    Angels designated OF Magneuris Sierra for assignment.

    Advice: This opens a 40-man roster spot for Logan O'Hoppe, who is getting the call on Wednesday. Sierra, once a top prospect with the Cardinals and then the Marlins, batted just .165/.200/.242 in 45 games this year for Anaheim. NBCSportsEDGE.com 36 minutes ago
