Cincinnati Reds pitcher Alex Wood, who has yet to pitch for his new team after injuring his back in the spring, pitched six strong innings in his final rehab start for the Chattanooga Lookouts this past Monday and looks to make debut for the big club soon. Wood threw 85 pitches over his six innings, giving up one run on four hits while striking out four, picking up the victory and helping to end the Lookouts 14-game losing streak. After pitching Monday night, it looks like Wood will line up to debut for Cincinnati on Tuesday, July 30 when the Reds take on the Pirates at home. Winner of 25 games over the past two seasons, now is a good time to stash Wood away.
San Francisco Giants OF Alex Dickerson (back) was back in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 23, after not starting the previous two games due to a tight back.
New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner (knee) missed his third straight game Tuesday, July 23, due to soreness in his left knee.
New York Yankees C Gary Sanchez (groin) was removed from the game Tuesday, July 23, due to a groin injury. Manager Aaron Boone indicated that the injury could land Sanchez on the injured list.
Texas Rangers OF Joey Gallo (wrist) was removed from the game Tuesday, July 23, with soreness in his right wrist.
Texas Ranger Rougned Odor hit his 14th and 15th home runs of the year on Tuesday night, in a 7-2 victory over the Mariners, with the two blasts giving him three homers in the past two games. The notoriously streaky second baseman, who once punched Jose Bautista square in the face, is enjoying his best month of the year thus far, with seven home runs, 18 RBI, and 16 runs scored since July 1st. Also since July 1st, Odor has a 41.9% K-rate and 1.6% walk-rate, as he turns more and more into a true two-outcome player. The Rangers play the rubber game in the series on Wednesday afternoon, facing Mike Leake, against whom Odor is a lifetime 19-39, with two home runs and a 1.053 OPS.
Updating a previous report, Seattle Mariners 2B Dee Gordon (quad) has a strained quad that's considered to be between a Grade 1 and a Grade 2, and he's expected to miss a few weeks recovering from the injury. Gordon was placed on the IL on Tuesday, July 23.
Updating a previous report, Seattle Mariners OF Domingo Santana (elbow) will undergo an MRI on his right elbow. The elbow has been bothering Santana since the All-Star break and was aggravated today.
Baltimore Orioles OF Mark Trumbo (knee) has begun a rehab assignment with Triple-A Norfolk; Trumbo has spent the entire season on the IL as he makes his way back from knee surgery last September.
After the New York Yankees' wild victory over the Minnesota Twins Tuesday night, manager Aaron Boone gave an update on catcher Gary Sanchez. The All-Star catcher exited the game in the eighth inning running down a ground out. He appeared to have suffered an ankle injury, but Boone proclaimed it to be a groin injury and a possible IL stint. This injury caused two IL stints for the 26-year-old last season. Boone additionally confirmed an MRI for Sanchez on Wednesday before a decision is made, but the injured list seems probable at this point.
Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta (shoulder) continues to rehab from a right shoulder injury that has sidelined him for most of July, and manager Torey Lovullo indicated that Peralta could return soon.
Minnesota third baseman Miguel Sano did his part at the plate Tuesday night, in the Twins 14-12 loss to the Yankees, blasting two home runs and driving in five. Sano's boomstick struck for the first time in the bottom of the fourth, when he crushed a chest-high hanging curve 414 feet, with two men on base. He brought the big stick out again in the eighth inning, putting the Twins up 12-11, by launching a Zack Britton sinker - that did not sink - 457 feet to center field. The Twins would eventually lose in extra innings but Sano continues to rake under the radar, after missing the first month of the season due to injury. In only 50 games this year, the former top prospect has 14 HR, with 27 RBI, and 33 runs scored and continues to put the disaster of 2018 further in the rear-view mirror.
Updating a previous report, Houston Astros RP Josh James (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list with right shoulder soreness retroactive to Monday, July 22.
The New York Yankees defeated the Minnesota Twins in 10 innings Tuesday night at Target Field. It was a 14-12 final score that saw a combined 35 hits and 12 runs in the final three frames. Outfielder Aaron Hicks was at the center of it all, as he drilled a dramatic two-run home run in the ninth to put the Yankees ahead. After the bullpen blew the save, the game carried into extras, where the Yankees found themselves back with a two-run lead. Hicks put the finishing touch on this wild game with a diving catch in left-center to secure the victory. It was an all-around performance against his former team, as the Yankees moved back to 30 games over .500.
Chicago White Sox SS Tim Anderson (ankle) is set to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday, July 24.
Miami Marlins SS Miguel Rojas (shoulder) was out of the starting lineup for the third straight game on Tuesday, July 23. He did field some grounders and throw across the diamond prior to the game.
Baltimore Orioles third baseman/designated hitter Renato Nunez continued to flex his muscle in Tuesday's . 7-2 win over the Diamondbacks, going 2-for-3 with an RBI single, a solo home run, and a walk. The second-inning laser was Nunez's third in his last seven games and his 24th of the season. The 25-year-old is on another of his hot streaks, batting .346 with six RBI in his last seven games. Nunez has huge power potential and is worth a waiver wire add at just 28% ownership.
Matt Olson crushed a three-run home run in the top of the ninth inning off of Astro's closer Roberto Osuna, after Osuna had been brought in to put out the fire that starter Wade Miley had kindled. Osuna had Olson down 0-2 before serving up a center-cut fastball that the A's slugger did not miss, driving in the two runners that Miley had let on earlier. After the Astros tied the game in the bottom of the ninth, Olson then singled in the 11th, coming around to score what would end up being the deciding run. Over the last month, the A's first baseman has nine home runs, 19 RBI, and 16 runs scored but has a tough test tomorrow against Astros starter, Justin Verlander.
The New York Yankees and Minnesota Twins engaged in an offensive battle for the ages Tuesday night at Target Field. The star of the night was shortstop Didi Gregorius, who drove in seven runs in a 5-for-5 performance at the plate. The Dutch native doubled home two runs in the first inning. He later drilled a three-run blast in the fifth, before his biggest hit of the night. With two on in the eighth, he stepped to the plate with the Yankees trailing by a run. Gregorius drilled a bases-clearing double to deep center, putting New York on top. From that point on, the game became all the more insane, as the offenses engaged in a bitterly-contested offensive battle that saw New York prevail, 14-12 in 10 innings.
Milwaukee Brewers 2B Keston Hiura (quadriceps) was back in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 23, after missing the previous game due to tightness in his quadriceps.
