Josh Hamilton went 1-for-4 with a double and one RBI during the Angels' 2-0 win over the Red Sox on Thursday.
Hamilton is now 3-for-10 with two doubles and four RBI since returning to the starting lineup for the Angels after the team gave him a couple days off to clear his head. The Angles high-paid outfielder is slashing .222/.281/.361 with three home runs and 12 RBI over 108 at-bats since returning from the All-Star break as his struggles continue since moving to Hollywood. For now, fantasy owners should explore other options until he gets back on track. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Orioles are expected to option Tyler Wilson to Triple-A Norfolk.
Wilson's demotion to Triple-A will clear a spot in the bullpen for Oliver Drake, who's been pitching unbelievably well in Triple-A. Wilson hasn't been particularly bad since being called up, appearing in two games and posting a 4.50 ERA and a 2.50 WHIP, but Drake's performance appears to have have won him the opportunity to take that next step.

Athletics recalled Kendall Graveman from Triple-A Nashville.
Graveman will make the start in today's game against the Rays as a result of Drew Pomeranz being placed on the DL. Graveman struggled mightily in his four starts with the A's (8.27 ERA, 2.02 WHIP, 9/7 strikeout-to-walk ratio) prior to being sent back down to Triple-A, but has been dominant in his four minor leagues starts since then (1.85 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and a 14/9 strikeout-to-walk ratio).
