  • In case you missed it, the Home Run Derby contestants were announced. The crew includes Robinson Cano and Corey Seager.
  • Grant Brisbee proposes a Home Run Derby that would draw in loads of viewers.
  • Josh Donaldson continues to improve, writes Dave Cameron.
  • The Red Sox have added infielder Aaron Hill from the Brewers.
  • Boston also netted reliever Brad Ziegler in a trade with the Diamondbacks.
  • Ex-Mariners reliever Oliver Perez accomplished a batting feat that hadn't been done in some time.
  • Matt Harvey is out for the season after choosing to undergo surgery.
  • The Pirates have called up top prospect Josh Bell.
