Phillip Ervin Cincinnati Reds

Continues to maul lefties with his double off Hamels tonight ... sending his OPS against lefties above 1.400.

Brian Anderson Miami Marlins

And another knock in the 4th to make it 20.

Oh ... and make that 24 days in a row for someone hitting 2 out.

About to join the 20 HR club with his next dinger.

Since June 18, over 44 games he's hit 12 HR with a .900+ OPS after tonight (after 7 HR and a .710 OPS over his first 69 games).

Jose Leclerc Texas Rangers

Good luck on LeClerc, If I owned him I would hold on. I don't, and I am happy about that.  Even during that last performance against the Indians, getting a save, he didn't look confident to me.

Trevor Rosenthal Detroit Tigers

Managed to get two outs yesterday while issuing two more walks, both of which resulted in runs counted against him (on singles against the next pitcher). Rosenthal's last fastball reached triple digits. He's thrown 283 this year with an average speed of 98.0.

His next will for someone else, most likely in Triple-A. He was DFAed after the game.

I spent a dollar on him this Monday. A reasonable bet if it wasn't 25 percent of my remaining FAAB.

Mike Trout Los Angeles Angels

WAR has Trout as the best ever. But where would he rank if we didn't have advanced metrics?

Trade Deadline day in PCL so will be interesting to see the trades that get done during the last minute.

Tucker Barnhart Cincinnati Reds

Seems like the teams are going to take a bath in arbitration. I hit X homers last year. Over the past five years, players who have hit X homers have earned $Y. Give me my money.

Dinelson Lamet San Diego Padres

Glad to see him back and pitching.

Padres stick it to the Mariners in Safeco as Lamet strikes out 12 in seven innings for his first win. It's astonishing how bad the bad teams are, especially in the AL.

Jose Berrios Minnesota Twins

I would put money on Berrios in his next start. The very best pitchers, after a pounding, come back with a vengeance.

Tucker Barnhart Cincinnati Reds

Five Cinci homers, two by Tucker, power the Reds past the Angels in Great American. Since coming off the IL nine games ago, he's hitting .393.

I'm finally ready to stop calling it the DL but understand if you're not.
