Before Lucas Giolito's MLB debut, Nationals manager Dusty Baker said that his prized prospect was on more a "performance count" than a pitch count. The one count he didn't count on was a pause count. Following the second rain delay of the night - an 85-minute job hat interrupted the game in the bottom of the fourth - Giolito is done, as reliever Yusmeiro Petit took over to start the fifth. As impressive as the 21-year old righty was (4 IP, 1 H, 0 ER), don't be surprised if the Nats take their time activating Stephen Strasburg (out since June 16 with an upper back strain) from the DL.

When does a six-inning start feel like a complete game? Rick Porcello gives pitching-starved Red Sox exactly what they need, namely 18 outs in an 8-2 victory over the Rays, and sets up David Price to pitch Boston to a 3-3 road trip Wednesday afternoon.

Juan Lagares went 1-for-4 with a strikeout and a run scored for Double-A Binghamton in the first game of his rehab assignment. He logged seven innings in center field. Lagares is trying to demonstrate he can play through a partially torn ligament in his left thumb and can avoid in-season surgery.

The Yankees haven't had any bad news in a few minutes, so here you go. 2015 first round pick James Kaprielian has a flexor tendon strain in his right elbow. He has had re-occurring discomfort and will next go see Dr. Neal ElAttrache. There was thought before the injuries that Kaprielian might be able to shoot through the minors to the majors in one year.

Another rain delay at Nats Park could put an end to Lucas Giolito's debut. After weather delayed the start of the game by 55 minutes, the 21-year old righty came out and tossed four scoreless innings, allowing one hit and two walks. But with Washington batting in the bottom of the fourth and leading 1-0, the heavens have reopened. Depending on how long the wet stuff lasts, Dusty Baker might not want to run his prized prospect back out there.
