Mike Minor’s inconsistency has left the Atlanta Braves wondering what they’re going to see from start to start. It’s been pretty well known, though, that he hasn’t been at his best when facing the Miami Marlins recently. Minor hopes that’s not the case Tuesday night as he looks to help Atlanta avoid a third loss in four games at Turner Field. He’s coming off his first win since May 19, though that’s a bit deceiving considering he allowed six runs and 11 hits in six innings of the Braves’ 11-6 victory over the Chicago Cubs on July 12.

Oakland general manager Billy Beane acted boldly, trading top prospect Addison Russell in a deal that brought starters Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to the Athletics. Then it was Jerry Dipoto’s turn. The GM of the Los Angeles Angels acquired closer Huston Street on Friday night, giving his team another option in the late innings and adding more intrigue to an already-spirited AL West race. The A’s have baseball’s best record, but the Angels are only 1 1/2 games behind, and both teams have aggressively improved themselves with major trades since the beginning of July.

Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon knows he has to take a special approach with his younger players, something that requires patience when overseeing a club expecting to contend in the AL West. Rookie starter Roenis Elias is going through a rough patch at the moment, but that could be coming to an end as he faces the sputtering New York Mets’ offense at home Monday night. The signing of Robinson Cano immediately increased expectations for the Mariners (52-46), who are in third place behind major league-best Oakland and the Los Angeles Angels. Seattle dropped two of three to the Angels over the weekend, though both defeats came on walk-off hits.

A year after a disappointing departure from Baltimore, Jake Arrieta is thriving in Chicago. Now he’ll try to stop the Cubs’ four-game skid Sunday against Paul Goldschmidt and the Arizona Diamondbacks. Arrieta’s undefeated stretch began with one of his shortest outings of the season, when he lasted 4 2-3 innings on June 3 against the New York Mets. He gave up seven hits and walked three, but he allowed one first-inning run in Chicago’s 2-1 win.

Rubby De La Rosa pitched seven sharp innings and Mike Napoli homered to lead the surging Boston Red Sox to a 2-1 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Saturday night. Napoli, Boston’s first baseman, had two hits and a walk and scored two runs. He hit a solo home run in the sixth inning that gave the Red Sox the lead for good en route to their sixth win in seven games. While they have lost 20 one-run games this season, tied with the New York Mets and now the Royals for the most in baseball, the Red Sox (45-52) are growing accustomed to eking out narrow victories at home.

It was not so much that Travis d’Arnaud drove in the winning run for the New York Mets on Friday night at Petco Park. D’Arnaud’s two-out single in the top of the ninth off San Diego Padres reliever Joaquin Benoit snapped a 4-4 tie and gave the surging Mets a 5-4 win — their fourth straight victory and ninth in their last 11 games. But the fact that right-hander Benoit was pitching the ninth for the Padres was as big a story as D’Arnaud’s game-winning hit. During the game, the Padres traded All-Star closer Huston Street and minor league closer Trevor Gott to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for four minor league prospects — Triple-A second baseman Taylor Lindsey, Double-A relief pitcher R.J. Alvarez, Class A shortstop Jose Rondon and Class A starting pitcher Elliott Morris.

Winning 300 games, hitting 500 homers and racking up more than 2,000 managerial wins was easy compared with what comes next for the Baseball Hall of Fame class of 2014 — delivering a brief but career-encompassing speech in front of 60,000 people. Five-sixths of one of the most decorated classes in Hall of Fame history — managers Bobby Cox, Tony LaRussa and Joe Torre, left-handed pitcher Tom Glavine and first baseman/designated hitter Frank Thomas — conducted a dry run of sorts during a series of conference calls Friday. They looked back on their Hall of Fame careers and looked ahead to the induction ceremonies scheduled to take place on the grounds of the Cooperstown’s Clark Sports Center on July 27. Right-handed pitcher Greg Maddux was unable to participate because of a scheduling conflict.
