Néstor Cortés Jr returns to action. (+Cuban MLB Report)

Néstor Cortés Jr returned to the mound after missing nearly three months of action, the lefty from Batabano, Cuba tossed four innings where he only surrendered a run via a third inning José Altuve longball, which was also the only hit he gave on the evening. The hurler also fanned eight batters, but left with a no-decision in the Yankees 3-1 win over the Astros.

Dairon Blanco continued to swing a hot stick. A night removed from driving in three runs the speedy outfielder knocked in a run and scored in four trips to the plate in Kansas City’s 9-6 loss to Philadelphia. Blanco is hitting a robust .370 in his last 15 games.

Luis Robert hit his 30th jack of the season in Chicago’s 7-4 win over Cleveland. The slugger also drove in and scored a run. Oscar Colás also joined the act with his own solo shot in the fourth. Since returning from the minors the native of Santiago de Cuba is hitting .211 since his return from the minors.
