UPDATES & NEWS
Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with an RBI and three runs scored in Sunday's 6-5 victory over the Mariners.
Trout has picked up right where he left off to start the second half, with Sunday's performance being his second multi-hit game since returning from the All-Star break. He is now slashing .313/.400/.612 with 23 home runs, 74 RBI and 10 stolen bases through his first 361 at-bats and has shown no signs of slowing down anytime soon. There is no doubt he is the top fantasy option at this point in the season. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Mariners designated LHP Mike Kickham for assignment.
At 26-years old, it looks like the Mariners were fed up with Kickham's antics, as his inflated ERA and walk rate gave them no indication that he could get a grasp on professional pitching. Even if he gets picked up, don't expect Kickham to get a call to the show at any point this season. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Packers have released C Joe Madsen.
Madsen isn't a very athletic center and in today's NFL, it appears that is the direction that the position is beginning to head. The Packers said good riddance, but there is nothing saying that there won't be at least a couple of teams looking to give Madsen a training camp invite. Analysis: Dom Murtha
