Mike Trout went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and two walks in the Angels 6-1 triumph over the Marlins on Wednesday night at Angel Stadium. 

Much has been made of Trout's relatively cold second half, but he now has home runs in three of his last six games.ANALYST: Steve Pimental

Yunel Escobar (hamstring) is not in the Nationals lineup on Tuesday.

Escobar left Monday's game with left hamstring tightness and so he is getting a day of rest to see if that takes care of the tightness issue. Danny Espinosa will play third while Dan Uggla will take Espinosa's spot at second for Tuesday's game. Analysis: Matt Selz

Denard Span (back) is not in the Nationals lineup on Tuesday.

Span left Monday's game with back spasms and they are causing him to miss Tuesday's game as well. Span should not be out for more than a game or two which will be a relief to Nats fans as they deal with injuries all over the diamond this season. Michael Taylor will play center and lead off for the Nationals in the second game of the Reds series. Analysis: Matt Selz

Marlins recall INF Jordany Valdespin from Triple-A New Orleans.

He will take the roster spot forfeited by Marcell Ozuna after he was demote on Sunday. Valdespin has not appeared in the majors this season while putting up solid numbers at Triple-A. In 60 games he's hitting .287/.342/.378 with one homer, and six thefts. Not sure how much playing time he will receive but he could have slight fantasy relevance if playing time is available. Analysis: Matt Selz

Marlon Byrd is not in the Reds lineup on Tuesday.

Tuesday's off day is just a day of rest for the veteran slugger. Byrd has been on a hot streak since coming off the DL June 19th and is currently in the midst of an 11-game hit streak. Skip Schumaker will draw the start against Max Scherzer and the Washington Nationals. Analysis: Matt Selz

David Goforth has been optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Optioning Goforth is the corresponding move to the activation of Khris Davis off of the DL. Goforth had seen action in four games for the Brewers this season giving up 0 earned and sub-one WHIP in 2 1/3 IP. He should be in line to return at some point this season. Analysis: Matt Selz

Khris Davis has been activated from the 15-day disabled list.

He will be starting in Left Field and batting seventh for Milwaukee Tuesday as he returns from knee surgery performed in late-May. Prior to the injury he was batting .250 with five homers in 46 games played. Analysis: Matt Selz
