Date Player News
7/31/2014 Chris Davis, 1B (Bal) Davis missed a second straight game with a stomach virus Wednesday.

Analysis: It's uncertain when he will return to action.
7/30/2014 Alex Rios, RF (Tex) Rios left the Texas Rangers game Wednesday after getting hit by a pitch on the left quad.

Analysis: The Rangers called the move precautionary after Rios left against the New York Yankees. Rios, considered a potential trade possibility before Thursday's non-waiver trading deadline, stayed in the game to run after getting hit by a pitch thrown by Hiroki Kuroda in the third inning.
7/30/2014 Rob Scahill, P (Col) The Rockies recalled Scahill from Triple-A Colorado Springs before Wednesday night's game at Wrigley Field.

Analysis: The move was made after the Rockies used eight relievers in Tuesday night's 16-inning loss, which lasted 6 hours and 27 minutes, setting a franchise record for each team.
7/30/2014 James Shields, P (KC) Shields lost for the third time in his last four decisions despite allowing just two runs - one earned - over six innings in a 2-1 defeat to Minnesota on Tuesday.

Analysis: Shields is only 1-2 in his last five starts despite a 1.93 ERA, though he wasn't necessarily deserving of a win Tuesday considering he issued a season high-matching four walks.
7/30/2014 Kyle Gibson, P (Min) Gibson recorded his ninth win of the season Tuesday, striking out seven over seven scoreless innings of two-hit ball in a 2-1 victory at Kansas City.

Analysis: Gibson has been somewhat inconsistent - after all he was coming off an outing in which he gave up six runs - but he's 5-3 over his last nine games with a 3.44 ERA.
7/30/2014 Felix Doubront, P (ChC) The Boston Red Sox have traded left-hander Felix Doubront to the Chicago Cubs for a player to be named.

Analysis: The Red Sox announced the deal before Wednesday night's game against Toronto. The 26-year-old Doubront was 2-4 with a 6.07 ERA in 17 games. He began the season in the rotation and was moved to the bullpen in late June.
7/30/2014 Danny Santana, CF (Min) Santana was 2 for 5 with a pair of doubles in a 2-1 win at Kansas City on Tuesday.

Analysis: Santana has enjoyed an electric start to his big league career, hitting .318 in 47 games this year and .333 over his last eight with seven runs scored.
7/30/2014 Marcus Stroman, P (Tor) Stroman won a third straight start Tuesday, limiting Boston to a run and six hits over seven innings in a 4-2 road victory.

Analysis: The rookie is 4-0 in his last seven starts with a 1.75 ERA. He should be owned in all leagues.
7/30/2014 Brock Holt, 3B (Bos) Holt was 2 for 5 in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to Toronto with his 20th double of the season.

Analysis: Owners hope Tuesday's performance helps Holt get on track as he was 1 for 23 in his previous six contests.
7/30/2014 Jose Bautista, RF (Tor) Bautista was 1 for 3 wand walked twice in Tuesday's 4-2 win at Boston.

Analysis: Bautista is 12 for 29 over his last eight games with seven RBIs and seven walks, touting a .553 on-base percentage in that span.
7/30/2014 Colby Rasmus, CF (Tor) Rasmus hit his 14th homer of the year and drove in a run for the third straight game in Tuesday's 4-2 win at Boston.

Analysis: Rasmus' .223 batting average isn't going to impress anyone, though he is 11 for 39 (.282) over his last 11 games with six RBIs.
7/30/2014 Alex Rios, RF (Tex) Rios was 3 for 5 with a double in Tuesday's 12-11 loss to the Yankees.

Analysis: Rios continues to enjoy a solid season, batting a career-best .305, though he's hit just four homers in 103 games.
7/30/2014 J.P. Arencibia, C (Tex) Arencibia had quite the performance Tuesday, going 4 for 5 with two homers and seven RBIs in a 12-11 loss to the Yankees.

Analysis: It was a spectacular showing but just one game - after all, Arencibia's still batting just .183, though he does have 22 RBIs in 32 games.
7/30/2014 Nate Jones, P (CWS) Jones underwent surgery on his right elbow and is expected to need 12 to 15 months to recover.

Analysis: Jones had Tommy John surgery Tuesday. The operation was performed by Dr. James Andrews. Jones also had back surgery May 5. The right-hander has been limited to just two appearances this season, failing to retire a batter in a pair of April games. He went 4-5 with a 4.15 ERA in 70 games last season.
7/30/2014 Chase Headley, 3B (NYY) Headley was 1 for 3 with an RBI in a 12-11 win at Texas on Tuesday.

Analysis: A change scenery apparently has been a good thing for Headley, who has hit safely in all eight of his games with New York while driving in four runs.
7/30/2014 Brett Gardner, LF (NYY) Gardner recorded his second four-hit game of the season Tuesday, finishing a triple shy of the cycle and scoring three runs in a 12-11 win at Texas.

Analysis: Gardner is 12 for 31 (.387) over his last eight games and has three homers in his last two.
7/30/2014 Brandon McCarthy, P (NYY) McCarthy picked up another win for his new club despite a mediocre outing, allowing four runs and nine hits over six innings in a 12-11 victory at Texas on Tuesday.

Analysis: McCarthy is 3-0 with a 2.55 ERA in four starts for the Yankees after posting a career-worst 5.01 ERA and 3-10 record over 18 outings with Arizona earlier this season.
7/30/2014 Eric Chavez, 3B (Ari) Chavez announced his retirement Wednesday, ending his 17-year major league career at the age of 36.

Analysis: left-handed hitting infielder, on the disabled list since June 9 because of a sprained left knee, spent 13 seasons with the Oakland Athletics, two with the New York Yankees and was in his second season with Arizona. In 1,615 career regular-season games, he hit .268 with 260 home runs and 902 RBIs. This season, he hit .246 with three homers and eight RBIs in 69 at-bats.
7/30/2014 Jered Weaver, P (LAA) Weaver matched a season high by allowing six runs in five innings in Tuesday night's 7-6 loss to Baltimore.

Analysis: Weaver (11-6, 3.62 ERA) avoided a losing decision, keeping his win streak intact at four. He had a 2.68 ERA in his prior seven outings and a 2.35 ERA in his previous four.
7/30/2014 Anibal Sanchez, P (Det) Sanchez's struggles continued Tuesday night in an 11-4 loss to the Chicago White Sox.

Analysis: Sanchez (7-5, 3.57 ERA) allowed five runs - four earned - and six hits in 6 1-3 innings. He's 1-2 with a 6.27 ERA in his last three starts.
