Padres signed OF Forrestt Allday to a minor league contract.

Aside from the awesome name, there isn't a whole lot to get excited about here. The 26-year-old slashed .298/.410/.341 with one homer, 33 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 92 games at Double-A Mobile in 2017.

Jhoulys Chacin fired six shutout innings to pick up his 13th win of the year against the Cardinals on Sunday.

Chacin scattered four hits and did not walk a batter. He stuck out three and threw a staggering 62 of 82 pitches for strikes over six frames. The 30-year-old righty has allowed one run or fewer in five of his last seven starts dating back to July 15. He's 13-4 with a 3.58 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 122/55 K/BB ratio in 27 starts this season. He's been an outstanding free agent bargain for the Brewers, who inked the well-traveled veteran to a two-year $15 million deal in December. He’ll face the Pirates at home in his next start on Saturday.

Justin Turner went 4-for-5 with a homer and five RBI in a 12-1 shellacking of the Mariners on Sunday.

Turner's homer came off of Andrew Romine -- yep, another position player pitching -- and it gives the third baseman nine on the season. The other three knocks were all singles, and his average is now over the .300 mark at .305. Turner is as hot as it gets with the bat right now, and his OPS 1.223 in his 52 at bats in August. It was only a matter of time for Turner to start playing at the level we've come accustomed to. We just wish it would have come a little sooner, but injuries certainly have played a part in his early "struggles."

A.J. Pollock clubbed a go-ahead solo homer off of Kirby Yates in the ninth inning on Sunday, powering the Diamondbacks to a 4-3 victory over the Padres.

Pollock strolled to the dish with one out in the ninth inning and fouled off a tough 1-2 offering before crushing his go-ahead home run into the seats in left-center. He also doubled in the contest, finishing the afternoon 2-for-5. The 30-year-old outfielder is now slashing .286/.344/.540 with 16 homers, 50 RBI and 10 stolen bases in his 78 games on the season.

Khris Davis hit two homers on Sunday, but the Athletics fell to the Astros on Sunday.

Both of Davis's homers were off of Justin Verlander; a solo shot in the first inning and a two-run shot in the third to tie the game at 4-4. The pair of blasts give Davis 36 on the season, and the three RBI bring his RBI tally to 98. With those numbers along with an .898 OPS over 114 games, it wouldn't be a huge surprise if Davis received some MVP down votes. He's deserving of them.

Rougned Odor went 2-for-3 with a homer and four RBI in a 4-2 victory over the Angels on Sunday.

Odor hit a three-run shot off of Noe Ramirez in the seventh inning to turn a 2-1 deficit into a 4-2 lead. It's the 15th homer of the season, and that along with an RBI single in the first give the second baseman 54 runs batted in on the 2018 season. What an improvement Odor has made over the past few months. His .279/.355/.483 line would be impressive even before you consider he was hitting .171 on May 23. The only blemish here was a caught stealing, his 10th of the season. You'll happily trade it for the results he's put up over the past two-plus months.

Adam Frazier hit a pinch-hit, walk-off homer to give the Pirates a 2-1 victory over the Cubs on Sunday in 11 innings.

Frazier came up with two outs in the bottom of the 11th to face Brandon Kintzler, and he deposited the baseball into the stands to give himself five homers and the Pirates the victory. He's received inconsistent playing time, but he's performed reasonably well over his 80 games with a line of .284/.352/.447 over 197 at-bats. You can certainly do worse, but it's tough to call him more than a bench outfielder right now in redraft leagues.

Yankees' manager Aaron Boone said after Sunday's game that the bruised left heel sustained by Didi Gregorius is "pretty significant" and could require a trip to the disabled list.

Gregorius went to the hospital for further testing, but it sounds like he's going to be on the shelf for awhile. He suffered the injury during Sunday's game against the Blue Jays when he collided with Kendrys Morales at first base.
Aug 19 - 4:54 PM

Starlin Castro went 5-for-6 with an RBI and three runs scored in a blowout victory over the Nationals.

Castro doubled twice, and the other three hits were singles. He drove in the first run of the game with an RBI single in the third to score Rafael Ortega. The second baseman now has an eight-game hitting streak, and his season line improves to .287/.335/.407 with 10 homers and 45 RBI over 123 games in his first year with the Marlins.
Aug 19 - 4:29 PM

Jose Urena pitched a complete game in a 12-1 victory over the Nationals on Sunday.

Urena allowed only two hits, and he walked two while striking out four. In his last start, Urena didn't get anyone out as he was ejected for plunking Ronald Acuna to start the game. In this one, Urena didn't need any bullpen help, as he kept the Nationals off balance all game. It's the fourth win of the season for the right-hander against 12 losses, and his ERA drops to 4.50 over 138 innings. Urena’s next listed start is Saturday against the Braves, but for obvious reasons, his next outing likely will come later against a different club.
Aug 19 - 4:23 PM

Melky Cabrera hit a grand slam to help the Indians to an 8-0 victory over the Orioles on Sunday.

Cabrera's grand slam came off of Sean Gilmartin, and it's the fourth homer of the season for the veteran outfielder. Three of those homers have come in the last seven appearances for the 34-year-old, and he has his season line up to .254/.295/.397 in 142 plate appearances. He's not an ideal fantasy outfielder, but you can do worse if you need an active player in your lineup right now.
Aug 19 - 4:13 PM

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said in a radio interview Sunday that "it is not out of the realm of possibility" Jose Altuve (knee) is activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

Altuve is beginning a rehab assignment with Triple-A Fresno on Sunday and it sounds like he could need just one rehab game before resting Monday and then being activated Tuesday. The star second baseman has been on the shelf since late July with right knee discomfort.
