New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano drove in 85 runs last season, a very respectable number. His current hitting streak has him on pace to surpass that total by year's end. Cano has a major-league-best .361 batting average and 50 RBI near the season's halfway mark, landing him in the top 10 in the American League. Cano, who has a .413 on-base percentage and 53 runs, said he has become more patient at the plate. Viewing more pitches also helped him to hit .400 in April and .357 in June, he said.

The Dodgers' expected signing of Cuban second baseman Alexander Guerrero puts a spotlight on the most anticipated free-agent saga of the coming off-season: Whither Robinson Cano ? This saga comes with a song: "Crown," the Jay-Z song that features this lyric: " Scott Boras , you over baby/Robinson Cano, you coming with me. " When Jay-Z expanded from rap star to sports agent, he recruited Cano away from Boras, who is perhaps baseball's most prominent agent. If Jay-Z wants to prosper in his new calling, and if his first baseball client is the undisputed king of this year's free-agent class, Jay-Z had better land the second baseman a mega-contract.

Reporting from Phoenix — Matt Kemp admitted he got a little excited at his first taste of All-Star competition, even if it was basically just batting practice. "I was probably a little amped up. Probably a little quick," the Dodgers outfielder said after Monday's home run derby. But even the fact he finished last in the eight-man event with just two home runs couldn't take the shine off his evening. "It was tight, man. That was a great experience," Kemp said. "I wish I could have hit more home runs.

Nick Swisher hit the first of three consecutive home runs that sent Phil Hughes and the New York Yankees to their eighth straight victory, 11-4 over the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night. Robinson Cano and Melky Cabrera also hit solo shots to right field in the second inning against Jeremy Guthrie -- all with two strikes.

Angel ace Jered Weaver came out of Monday's game after 12 pitches, injuring his lower back while throwing a first-inning strike to New York Yankees cleanup hitter Robinson Cano. After delivering a 1-0 pitch, Weaver leaped off the mound in pain. Manager Mike Scioscia and a trainer ran out to Weaver, who tried to talk them into leaving him in the game. But after tossing a warmup pitch to catcher Bobby Wilson, it was obvious Weaver was in too much pain to continue. Frustrated, he walked off the mound and into the clubhouse.

Hey, at least Matt Kemp didn't aggravate his hamstring. Otherwise, Kemp looked a lot like someone who hasn't played a major league game since May during Monday's All-Star Home Run Derby at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. While the Angels' Mark Trumbo was advancing to the semifinals with seven homers,  Kemp hit only … one. Last year he hit two. Doubt the Dodgers were too upset that Kemp, on the disabled list with a strained hamstring, was eliminated in the first round.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The Angels filled out their starting rotation on Tuesday, trading Mark Trumbo to the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-way deal. The Angels got Hector Santiago from the Chicago White Sox and Tyler Skaggs from the Diamondbacks, fulfilling an off-season goal of using the power-hitting Trumbo to acquire young and cost-effective pitching. Trumbo, who played first base for the Angels last season, is expected to play left field for Arizona. The Diamondbacks sent center fielder Adam Eaton to Chicago and got two players to be named -- one from the Angels, one from the White Sox. The deal is expected to be announced later Tuesday.

PHOENIX - With a long-awaited conflict again coming into view, Dodgers outfielders have taken a variety of approaches to what could be an uncomfortable situation. Matt Kemp was brazen, declaring he wouldn't be a fourth outfielder. Carl Crawford was understanding. Yasiel Puig was diplomatic, saying he would respect any decision made by Manager Don Mattingly. Then there is Andre Ethier, who, when asked about playing time and potential trades, smiled, shook his head and shrugged his shoulders.
