A look at what’s happening around the majors today:
Shohei Ohtani is making his last start before heading to the All-Star Game, hoping to lead Los Angeles to a better result against Houston’s Cristian Javier, who defeated 14 Angels on July 1.
A start after hitting 13 in seven innings to start a combined no-hitter against the Yankees, Javier increased his career again with the 14 punchouts during seven innings with one-run ball in the Astros’ 8-1 win in Houston. One run was a homer by Ohtani.
Ohtani was named to his second straight All-Star Game as batter and pitcher. It is uncertain if he will start on the hill again like last year. He’s been even better as a pitcher this season, starting Wednesday 8-4 with a 2.44 ERA and 28 2/3 innings scoreless.
The Angels will also be checking on Mike Trout after the three-time AL MVP walked out of Tuesday’s game with upper back pain.
The Los Angeles Dodgers’ Tony Gonsolin is 11-0 with a major league-leading 1.62 ERA before his start in St. Louis.
The 28-year-old right-hander, a first-time All-Star, has allowed two runs or fewer in all 16 starts. He wants to become the first big league pitcher to win his first 12 decisions in a season since Detroit’s Max Scherzer started 13-0 in 2013. Prior to Scherzer, the feat had not been achieved since Boston’s Roger Clemens started 14-0 in 1986.
ALL STAR SHUFFLE
Red Sox designated hitter JD Martinez, San Francisco left-hander Carlos Rodón and Miami first baseman Garrett Cooper are the latest players to be added to rosters for next week’s All-Star Game.
They replaced Philadelphia’s Bryce Harper and Houston’s Yordan Álvarez, who are injured, and Milwaukee’s Josh Hader, who is missing the July 19 game at Dodger Stadium for family reasons.
Rodón made the All-Star Team for the second straight season. Martinez is a five-time All-Star. Cooper becomes the 31st first-time All-Star this year.
Bypassed for the All-Star Game, Philadelphia right-hander Zack Wheeler is taking into the finals of a two-game series in Toronto with an 8-4 record and 2.46 ERA.
Wheeler is 8-1 and a 1.53 ERA as of April 28 after losing his first three starts this season.
Rob Thomson leads the Phillies – he is the first Canadian to lead a major league game in his home country.
Thomson hails from Sarnia, Ontario, a town on the Michigan border about 200 miles west of Toronto. He was promoted to interim manager from his role as bench coach after Joe Girardi was fired on June 3.
This made Thomson the first Canadian-born manager in the big leagues since Pittsburgh’s George Gibson was fired in June 1934.
“It’s great to be home,” Thomson said ahead of Tuesday night’s game. “I like to come back here. I love the baseball park, especially when the roof is open. I have a lot of family and friends here. That means a lot.”
Among those friends were eight former teammates from the 1984 Canada Olympics baseball team, for whom 58-year-old Thomson was a catcher.
“I guess they rented a suite,” Thomson said. “I don’t know how they got the money. It will be nice to see her too.”
