Jose Reyes continued his hot hitting going 3-for-4 with a walk but it was not enough as the Blue Jays fell to the Orioles 9-3 in front of the home crowd at the Rogers Centre on Tuesday night.
Reyes has recorded back-to-back three hit performances and had his fifth multi-hit performance over his past nine games where he has seen his average go from .274 to .285. This is coming on the heels of solid month of July where he hit .324 with two home runs, 18 runs, 10 RBI, and three stolen bases in 26 games. He already has one stolen base this month to give him 20 on the year.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Addison Russell was 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Sunday.
Top prospect Addison Russell had his timetable to the majors sped up this season with the Cubs and has responded admirably. Russell has played 87 games with 33 runs, seven home runs, 27 RBI and two stolen bases with a .237 average. Signs point to a better year in 2016 but for this year, Russell will put up stats but is a batting average risk. Analysis: Greg Jewett
Adam Morgan tossed five innings in Sunday’s 6-2 loss to the Braves, surrendering four runs on seven hits and three walks while recording just one strikeout.
After holding the struggling Braves scoreless over the first four frames of Sundays outing, Morgan ran into big trouble in the fifth. The young lefty did finish out the inning, but not before being tagged for four runs. Morgans first two starts in the bigs, which came on June 21st and July 3rd respectively, were impressive and left some fantasy players feeling that he could become a deep-league option for the second half, especially in N.L.-only formats. However, over his last five turns in the Phillies rotation Morgan has provided a mixed bag of results. ultimately pitching to a 5.61 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 3.5 K/9 across 25 2/3 innings. He is expected to be back on the bump Saturday night in San Diego. Analysis: Nate Miller
