Jameson Taillon struck out 10 while allowing a lone run over six innings in a 6-3 win over the Brewers on Thursday.

Taillon scattered four hits and two walks, with Jesus Aguilar's solo homer in the fourth inning serving as the only damage against him. Taillon has now managed to hold opponents to three runs or fewer in nine consecutive starts, lowering his ERA to 3.91 through 19 starts overall. He'll take a 6-7 record into the season's second half next week.

Jacob deGrom's agent Brodie Van Wagenen told Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic on Tuesday that he believes the Mets' "best course of action is to seriously consider trade opportunities now" for his client.

The full quote, via Rosenthal's Twitter account: "We have discussed Jacob’s future with the Mets at length," said Van Wagenen. "Jacob has expressed interest in exploring a long-term partnership that would keep him in a Mets uniform for years to come. If the Mets don’t share [the] same interest, we believe their best course of action is to seriously consider trade opportunities now. The inertia of [the] current situation could complicate Jacob’s relationship with the club and creates an atmosphere of indecision." The 30-year-old right-hander is currently under team control through 2020 via salary arbitration. He holds an MLB-leading 1.68 ERA with 149 strikeouts in 123 1/3 innings this season.

Max Scherzer has been named as the National League starter for Tuesday night's All-Star Game in D.C.

Jacob deGrom and his MLB-leading 1.68 ERA would have been a fine choice as well, but Scherzer gets the nod with the game being played at Nationals Park, and deGrom will come on right after him. Scherzer, 33, registered a brilliant 2.41 ERA, 0.899 WHIP, and 182/34 K/BB ratio over 134 2/3 innings in the first half for Washington. He'll be opposed by Chris Sale to get things underway on Tuesday.

Chris Sale will start for the American League in Tuesday night's MLB All-Star Game in Washington, D.C.

Sale is the first pitcher to start three All-Star Games in a row since Robin Roberts in 1953-1955. The 29-year-old left-hander put up a sensational 2.23 ERA, 0.899 WHIP, and 188/31 K/BB ratio across 129 innings in the first half for Boston. Max Scherzer will take the mound first for the National League squad.

Yoenis Cespedes (hip, quad) hit two home runs in a simulated game Monday at the Mets' spring training complex.

He also singled, drew a walk, and played five innings of left field. Cespedes is aiming to come off the disabled list for the Mets' first game after the All-Star break on Friday night at Yankee Stadium, and he would seem to be on track to meet that goal. He can DH in that series before returning to the outfield next week. Cespedes has been sidelined since since May 13 due to hip and quad injuries.

Jon Heyman of Fancred reports that the Nationals could revisit a deal for J.T. Realmuto.

The Nationals reportedly attempted to acquire Realmuto this winter, but the Marlins understandably had a higher price tag for the 27-year-old backstop than the other components they sold off before the season started. Realmuto has pushed his value up even more because of his strong 2018 campaign, posting a .902 OPS with 12 homers and 45 RBI while being named an All-Star for the first time. Heyman mentions that the Nationals might even be willing to include Victor Robles to procure his services; a player widely believed to be untouchable because of his offensive and defensive upside. Because Realmuto isn't a free agent until 2021, it wouldn't make sense for the Marlins to give him up without getting a star prospect like Robles back in return.

Trevor Story went 1-for-4 with a game-winning solo homer in the bottom of the ninth inning in Sunday's 4-3 victory against the Mariners.

The walk-off homer was the first of Story's career, and he extended his hitting streak to 10 games with the late-game heroics to tie a career long. Story wraps up the first half slashing .292/.353/.557 with 20 homers and 68 RBI. He is second behind Nolan Arenado for the team lead in homers, and tied with the hot corner man for the team lead in RBI. The duo is also tied for sixth in the majors in RBI.

Kenley Jansen registered his 27th save of the season in Sunday's victory against the Angels.

Manager Dave Roberts, a.k.a. Doc, said after the game that while Jansen looked better, he would get four days off. That likely means the skipper will not play Jansen in the All-Star Game on Tuesday in Washington. Fantasy owners hope he gets rest and comes back raring to go in the second half. After a slow start, Jansen now has converted 27 of his 30 save chances while posting a 2.33 ERA and a microscopic 0.93 WHIP across 46 1/3 innings over 44 appearances.

Brian Dozier hit a walk-off grand slam in the bottom of the 10th inning Sunday as the Twins beat the Rays 11-7.

The heroic big fly came after the Rays opted to intentionally walk Joe Mauer and Eddie Rosario to load the bases. Dozier also hit an RBI single in the bottom of the seventh, driving in five total runs on the day. The veteran second baseman has been hugely productive since the calendar flipped to July and finished the first half with 16 home runs, 48 RBI, five stolen bases, and 60 runs scored in 93 games.
Jul 15 - 6:55 PM

Josh Bell went 2-for-5 with a two-run walk-off double in a 6-5 victory over the Brewers on Sunday in extra innings.

Bell came to the plate with the Pirates trailing 6-5, but he laced a two-run extra-base hit to score Gregory Polanco and Colin Moran to give Pittsburgh the win over Milwaukee. Bell has swung the bat much better as of late, but his first-half line of .261/.342/.396 with five homers is disappointing after he hit 26 homers in his 2017 campaign.
