Tuesday was an important day for a number of rumored trade candidates, and some of them came through. Among them:
- Ted Lilly threw 5.2 shutout innings against Houston, striking out eight
- Brett Myers, opposing Lilly, threw a complete game against the Cubs, allowing a run while striking out 12
- Jose Bautista homered twice against the Orioles, increasing his league lead and bumping him up to 30 on the year
Corey Hart, however, missed his fourth straight game with a bruised wrist, and teams are going to want to see him prove that he's healthy before they offer up what Milwaukee would want in return in a trade. In other words, if Hart is to get traded, he's going to need to get back in there in a hurry.
