Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Blasts 14th homer4m ago
LeMahieu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in an 8-4 loss against the Rockies on Sunday.
The 31-year-old's incredible season continued Sunday, as he hit his 14th homer. He's now just one shy of his career-high 15 home runs from last year, and LeMahieu is on an eight-game hitting streak. He is batting .333 with 14 home runs, 68 RBI, 71 runs and four steals in 375 at-bats this season.
Charlie Blackmon COL RF
Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Posts four hits8m ago
Blackmon went 4-for-5 with a solo home run and three runs in an 8-4 victory against the Yankees on Sunday.
The 33-year-old led off the game with a solo shot, which was clearly an indication of things to come. This was Blackmon's first four-hit game since June 15, and incredibly, he almost went as long without a homer, as June 30 was the last time he went deep prior to Sunday. Blackmon is batting .319 with a .602 slugging percentage, 21 home runs, 60 RBI, 74 runs and two steals in 354 at-bats this season.
Ryan Zimmerman WAS 1B
Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Headed for MRI10m ago
Zimmerman (foot) will undergo an MRI on Monday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Zimmerman missed around two months earlier this season with the same issue, though the Nationals won't know the extent of his injury until the results of his MRI return. Matt Adams and Howie Kendrick would see more playing time at first base if Zimmerman is forced to miss an extended period of time.
James Paxton NYY SP
Yankees' James Paxton: Suffers fifth loss12m ago
Paxton (5-5) allowed seven runs (four earned) on five hits with three walks and six strikeouts over just 3.1 innings while taking a loss against the Rockies on Sunday.
The 30-year-old remains winless in July, as he hasn't capture a victory since June 21. Paxton averaged almost two strikeouts per inning Sunday, but that's about the only thing that went his way. He had trouble with control, gave up a homer and struggled to overcome defensive lapses. Even with a few of the runs considered unearned, Paxton saw his ERA rise to 4.20 after this outing. He also has a 1.47 WHIP, .272 batting average against and 108 strikeouts in 85.2 innings this season. Paxton will look to get back on track Friday at the Red Sox.
German Marquez COL SP
Rockies' German Marquez: Beats Yankees17m ago
Marquez (9-5) allowed two runs on three hits with two walks and five strikeouts across seven innings while earning a victory against the Yankees on Sunday.
This was how owners were hoping Marquez would respond after yielding 11 runs in 2.2 innings during his last start. After such a terrible performance, Marquez couldn't possibly bring his numbers back to where they were after one good start, but this was a step in the right direction. He has a 4.99 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 133 strikeouts in 137 innings this season. Marquez will pitch next in Cincinnati on Friday.
Byron Buxton MIN CF
Twins' Byron Buxton: Practices Sunday1h ago
Buxton (concussion) took batting practice, ran the bases and completed outfield drills Sunday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Buxton could have been activated Sunday, but the Twins held him out another day. He could be activated before Monday's game against the Yankees, but it's hard to get a true read on his progress.
Julio Jones ATL WR
Falcons' Julio Jones: Not holding out36m ago
Jones (foot) is reporting for the start of training camp, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Jones hasn't received the new contract he desires, but he apparently is confident about a deal eventually being completed. He was a spectator during mandatory minicamp in June, not wanting to aggravate an issue with his foot. The 30-year-old wideout may reconsider his amicable stance if negotiations don't wrap up soon.
Ha Ha Clinton-Dix CHI SS
Bears' Ha Ha Clinton-Dix: Expected to start camp on PUP4h ago
Clinton-Dix is expected to open up training camp on the physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Ravens' Jaylon Ferguson: Good to go for camp4h ago
Ferguson (undisclosed) was removed from the Non-Football Injury list and will be available for the starting of training camp Thursday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
Ferguson landed on the NFI on Friday for an undisclosed reason, but the linebacker was able to pass a physical just two days later. Ferguson was selected in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft and should be good to go once training camp kicks off Thursday.

Ravens' Daylon Mack: Removed from NFI4h ago
Mack (undisclosed) was removed from the Non-Football Injury list and will be available for Thursday's practice, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
Mack was placed on the NFI on Friday with an undisclosed injury, but it looks like whatever was bothering him then is no longer an issue. Look for Mack to be on the practice field once the team kicks off training camp Thursday.
Michael Pierce BAL DT
Ravens' Michael Pierce: Cleared for training camp4h ago
Pierce (undisclosed) was removed from the non-football injury (NFI) list after passing a physical and will be available for Thursday's practice, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
Pierce's time on the NFI lasted just two days, as the Ravens were apparently going to keep him inactive until he was back in shape after failing to take part in minicamp last month due to conditioning issues. Pierce is believed to be in line for a contract extension at some point this offseason, and the defensive lineman being cleared to practice should help expedite that process.
Ken Webster NE DB
Patriots' Ken Webster: Placed on PUP list7h ago
Webster (undisclosed) was placed on New England's Physically Unable to Perform list Sunday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Webster was healthy when the Patriots selected him in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft in late April, so it's unclear what his current issue is or how long he may need to recover. The injury comes at an unfortunate time for the Mississippi product as he tries to make a name for himself in New England's secondary. Webster can be activated off the PUP list at any time between now and the end of preseason.

Knicks' Kenny Wooten: Signs deal with Knicks1d ago
Wooten has agreed to an Exhibit 10 contract with the Knicks, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

Undrafted out of Oregon this summer, Wooten appeared in three summer league games for New York. In 35 total minutes, he racked up five points, eight rebounds, eight blocks and one assist. Even if he doesn't land a roster spot, it's possible Wooten will see time for the Westchester Knicks of the G League.

Kyle Korver PHO SG
Bucks' Kyle Korver: Inks deal with Bucks2d ago
Korver agreed to a one-year contract with the Bucks on Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Korver had narrowed his choices down to Milwaukee and Philadelphia, but his past relationship with coach Mike Budenholzer likely gave the Bucks and edge. The veteran sharp-shooter will not likely see heavy minutes, but his experience could make him valuable in clutch situations when the team needs a spark off the bench. He hit 2.0 triples per game on 38.4 percent from beyond the arc last season.
B.J. Johnson SAC SF
Kings' B.J. Johnson: Waived by Kings2d ago

Johnson also appeared in six summer league games for the Kings in 2019, though wasn't a significant contributor. Ultimately, the organization has opted to explore other options with the roster spot.
Neal Pionk WPG D
Jets' Neal Pionk: Lands two-year deal with Jets5h ago
Pionk inked a two-year, $6 million deal with Winnipeg on Sunday.
Pionk was traded to Winnipeg last month as part of the deal that sent Jacob Trouba to the Rangers. The Jets' blue line has taken a significant hit this offseason, so the 23-year-old should slot into a top-four role. Last season, he scored six goals and 26 points with 98 blocked shots and 138 hits in 73 contests.
Oskar Sundqvist STL C
Blues' Oskar Sundqvist: Inks four-year deal with Blues6h ago
Sundqvist signed a four-year deal worth $2.75 million annually with St. Louis on Sunday, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Sundqvist played 74 games for the Blues last season, notching 14 goals and 17 points. Entering the 2018-19 campaign, he scored just nine points in 70 career contests. The 25-year-old also tallied four goals and nine points during St. Louis' Stanley Cup run. Sundqvist should continue working in a bottom-six role with the Blues at least during the 2019-20 season.
Ville Husso STL G
Blues' Ville Husso: Re-ups with Blues1d ago
Husso agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the Blues on Saturday.
Husso will return to the Blues for the 2019-20 season. He played 27 games for the San Antonio Rampage, the Blues' AHL affiliate, last season, posting a 6-18 record with a 3.67 goals-against average and an .871 save percentage.
Brock McGinn CAR RW
Hurricanes' Brock McGinn: Secures new deal2d ago
McGinn and the Hurricanes agreed to a two-year, $4.2 million contract Saturday.
McGinn filed for arbitration July 1 after receiving a qualifying offer from Carolina. The 25-year-old notched 26 points (10 goals, 16 assists) over 82 games in 2018-19. With a new deal in place, McGinn will likely continue his role on Carolina's fourth line in 2019-20.
Jacob Trouba NYR D
Rangers' Jacob Trouba: Lands huge deal2d ago
Trouba agreed to terms on a seven-year, $56 million contract with the Rangers on Friday.
Trouba was acquired by New York from Winnipeg in June and has now tied himself to the club for the next seven years. With this deal, the 25-year-old becomes the highest paid blueliner on the Rangers and trails only Henrik Lundqvist ($8.5 million) and Artemi Panarin ($11.6 million) in terms of annual cap hit. Clearly, team brass believes the Michigan native can repeat his 2018-19 campaign, in which he set career highs in assists (42), points (50) and shots (162).
James Neal EDM LW
Oilers' James Neal: Flipped in big trade2d ago
Neal was acquired by Edmonton from Calgary on Friday in a swap for Milan Lucic and a conditional third-round pick in 2020, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
After failing to hit the 20-goal mark for the first time in his career, Neal will hope for a fresh start with the Oilers. The veteran winger could be a candidate for a top-line role alongside Connor McDavid and should be in contention for a spot on the No. 1 power-play unit as well. If he does get the opportunity to play alongside McDavid, Neal could threaten the 30-goal mark.
