Mariners activated C Curt Casali off the 10-day injured list.


Aug 11   8:11 PM


The Rockies will reportedly call-up Wynton Bernard on Friday.


Aug 11   7:39 PM

Bernard has been playing baseball in organizations since 2013, but has yet to make his MLB debut. That could change if he gets a chance to play while with the club. The outfielder isn't worth a fantasy addition, but it's an awesome story of persaverence.


Daulton Varsho drove in three runs on Thursday while stealing a base in a rout of the Pirates. 


Aug 11   7:23 PM

The steal is the eighth of the season for the speedy backstop/outfielder. All three RBI game on a bases-loaded double that broke the game open for the D-Backs; turning a 5-3 lead into an 8-3 cushion. Varsho has been so-so in his second full season, hitting .240/.313/.431 with 16 homers and 55 RBI over 102 games. 


An MRI revealed that Elias Díaz has ligament damage in his right hand.


Aug 11   7:05 PM

The good news is that he doesn't have anything broken, but the damage will almost assuredly mean he's heading to the injured list. The injury occurred during Wednesday's loss to the Cardinals. Dom Nunez will take his place on the roster.


Yonathan Daza told reporters after Thursday's win against the Cardinals that he's hopeful to avoid the injured list.


Aug 11   7:05 PM

Daza's shoulder popped out of his socket, but he popped it back in himself (sorry for the squeamish) while waiting for trainers. There's no guarantee that he won't need a stint on the injured list, but it will likely be determined by his pain in the coming days.


Daulton Varsho drove in three runs on Thursday in a rout of the Pirates. 


Aug 11   7:05 PM


Merrill Kelly allowed three runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Pirates. 


Aug 11   7:05 PM


JT Brubaker didn't factor into the decision on Thursday while allowing two runs over five frames against the Diamondbacks. 


Aug 11   7:05 PM


Mark Melancon worked a scoreless ninth inning in relief of the Diamondbacks' win over the Pirates. 


Aug 11   7:05 PM


Germán Márquez gave up two runs in six innings to get a win over the Cardinals on Thursday. 


Aug 11   6:47 PM

Márquez gave up both of his runs in the fourth; a solo homer by Nolan Gorman, and an RBI single by Corey Dickerson. Outside of that the right-hander was strong; striking out six and allowing just a walk. There has not been much consistency from the 27-year-old in 2022, but he's given up just four runs over his last two starts over 12 innings. He has a rematch against the Cardinals next week, this time in St. Louis. 


Dakota Hudson allowed two runs in five innings in a no-decision against the Rockies on Thursday. 


Aug 11   6:47 PM

Hudson was able to hold the Rockies to just the two runs despite allowing four hits and four walks in the contest. A big reason for that was he was able to pick up six strikeouts in that timeframe. Far from a dominant effort, but five innings of two-run baseball pitching in Colorado isn't too shabby. He'll take a 4.17 ERA into a rematch with the Rockies in St. Louis next week. 


Nolan Gorman homered and reached three times on Thursday in a loss to the Rockies. 


Aug 11   6:31 PM


Daniel Bard gave up a run but still picked up a save Thursday against the Cardinals. 


Aug 11   6:31 PM


Yasmani Grandal went 3-for-5 and hit a two-run homer against the Royals on Thursday.


Aug 11   6:31 PM

Keeping the struggling Grandal in the lineup when he's not catching finally sort of paid off for Tony La Russa today, though the end result was still another loss. The fine performance pushed Grandal's average up to .204. It's the first time all year that he's finished a game over the Mendoza Line. The homer was his third in 263 plate appearances.


Nicky Lopez had a two-run single Thursday in the win over the Royals.


Aug 11   6:31 PM

Normally, we wouldn't blurb about a regular collecting a mere single in four at-bats. For Lopez, though, the one hit gave him his first multi-RBI game in 106 appearances this year. He entered the day with just 13 RBI, including none in his previous 21 games.


Dylan Cease pitched six innings of one-run ball and struck out eight against the Royals on Thursday.


Aug 11   6:31 PM

It's Cease's 11th straight start in which he's allowed one or no runs, and his ERA is all of the way down to 1.96. Alas, the one run was sufficient to get him handed a loss today, as he fell to 12-5 on the season.


Scott Barlow picked up his 18th save despite giving up a homer in the ninth Thursday against the White Sox.


Aug 11   6:31 PM

Andrew Vaughn took Barlow deep in a three-run game. Barlow did retire the other three batters in the frame, striking out two of them.


Yuli Gurriel went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored Thursday against the Rangers.


Aug 11   6:15 PM

Gurriel is playing quite a bit more than Trey Mancini at the moment, which makes one wonder just how bad Mancini's situation would be right now if not for Michael Brantley's injury. In spite of the nice game today, Gurriel is still hitting just .247 with no homers and five RBI in 73 at-bats since the All-Star break. He hasn't sported even a .700 OPS since the second game of the season.


Alex Bregman went 2-for-2 with a homer, three RBI and a walk versus the Rangers on Thursday.


Aug 11   6:15 PM

Bregman is 12-for-30 with two homers and eight RBI in nine games this month. He's been a fantasy disappointment with his .255 average, 14 homers and zero steals, but the Astros remain lucky to have him.


Cole Ragans surrendered five runs in 4 1/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Astros.


Aug 11   6:15 PM

Ragans' second major league start didn't go as well as his first, but he was facing a quality offense in this one, even if the Astros were missing Yordan Alvarez. Ragans also didn't have a ton of luck, as the three-run homer hit by Martin Maldonado in the second would have been an out in a lot of parks. Ragans will probably get to face both the A's and Twins next week, making him an option for mixed leaguers eager for wins.
