A look at what's happening all around the major leagues today:

---

WALK HIM!

The Indians might want to pitch around Miguel Cabrera when Detroit visits. The Tigers star is 22 for 34 (.647) with five home runs and 15 RBIs in nine games against Cleveland this season. He's also walked seven times and scored 10 runs.

THE KING AND I

Eric Hosmer is 4 for 9 against Mariners ace Felix Hernandez, who starts when the first-place Kansas City Royals open a three-city, 10-day trip in Seattle. It will be Hernandez's first outing since throwing eight shutout innings to beat Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants.

HELP ON THE WAY

All-Star second baseman Jose Altuve could be back in the lineup when the AL West-leading Houston Astros visit the Los Angeles Angels. Altuve has been out with a sore hamstring.

HARD LUCK AT HOME

The Rays begin a 10-game homestand, hosting Toronto. Tampa Bay is just 19-19 at Tropicana Field, while its 21-12 road record is the best winning percentage (.636) in the AL.

MISMATCH, MAYBE

Yankees righty Michael Pineda (8-3) took a no-hitter into the seventh inning in his last start against Miami. He now faces the Phillies, who have scored the fewest runs in the majors.
