Rangers-Orioles Preview (The Associated Press)

Posted on 30 June 2015

By the time he takes the mound at Camden Yards, it’ll be exactly a year since the Baltimore Orioles dealt Nick Martinez one of his worst outings in the majors. Despite a glut of quality starts this season, the right-hander seeks only his second win in just over a month when the Texas Rangers and Orioles continue this four-game series Wednesday night.

Indians-Rays Preview (The Associated Press)

Posted on 30 June 2015

Carlos Carrasco faced Tampa Bay less than two weeks ago and was about as hittable as he’s been all season. The way the Rays are batting entering Wednesday night’s game at Tropicana Field, it looks as though the Cleveland Indians right-hander might have a decent shot at getting back at them and becoming the third AL pitcher to reach 10 wins. After Tuesday’s 6-2 victory, Cleveland (35-41) has taken the first two of the four-game set and three straight over Tampa Bay (42-37).

Angels' Scioscia downplays report of rift with GM Dipoto (The Associated Press)

Posted on 30 June 2015

Scioscia addressed the report by Fox Sports before the Angels faced the Yankees, largely insisting that vehement closed-doors discussions are being misconstrued as an unbridgeable disagreement between the longest-tenured manager in baseball and the Angels’ new-school top executive. ”I’m passionate, he’s passionate,” Scioscia said. The Angels largely declined to comment directly about a team meeting last weekend that apparently highlighted the differences between Scioscia’s more traditional approach and Dipoto’s interest in statistical analysis.

Hendricks, 3 relievers shut down Mets in Cubs' 1-0 win (The Associated Press)

Posted on 30 June 2015

Maddon brought in an illusionist to entertain his team after a rough patch of play, but after a 1-0 win over the New York Mets on Tuesday night that snapped a five-game skid, the Chicago Cubs seemed to think the man with the magic touch was actually their mischievous manager. ”I just felt more comfortable and, I’m sure the guys felt the same, because he kind of tones it down a little bit, lets you relax,” Matt Szczur said about Maddon. Kyle Hendricks (3-4) pitched three-hit ball for six innings and combined with three relievers to bail out the Cubs, who scored just six runs during their losing streak.

Castillo joined the team in Toronto but wasn’t added to the active roster for Tuesday night’s game against the Blue Jays. Ramirez was out of the lineup for the sixth straight game while his ailing left hand heals.
