  • Hanley Ramirez clubs two-run homer on Sunday
    Hanley Ramirez clubbed a two-run homer in the first inning on Sunday helping to power the Red Sox to a 6-2 victory over the Cubs.

    Advice: The Red Sox got to Kyle Hendricks early in this one, with Andrew Benintendi reaching on a single and riding home on Ramirez's blast over the Green Monster. Ramirez also drew a walk in the ballgame, finishing the night 1-for-3 with two RBI. Through the first month of the season he's hitting .253/.314/.405 with three homers and 11 RBI. Today, 9:14 pm
  • Benintendi scores two runs in Sunday's win
    Andrew Benintendi went 2-for-4 and scored a pair of runs in Sunday's victory over the Cubs.

    Advice: Benintendi singled in the first inning and rode home on Hanley Ramirez's home run. He also singled and came around to score during the four-run rally in the eighth. He has been as advertised through the first month of the season, slashing an impressive .333/.392/.478 with three homers, 14 RBI and two stolen bases. Today, 9:10 pm
  • Marco Hernandez scores winning run Sunday
    Marco Hernandez scampered home on a wild pitch in the eighth inning on Sunday, providing the go-ahead run in a victory over the Cubs.

    Advice: The Red Sox loaded the bases with no outs in the eighth inning of a 2-2 ballgame. Mookie Betts struck out for the first out in the inning, but Pedro Strop unleashed a wild pitch on a 2-2 offering to Hanley Ramirez that allowed Hernandez to score. He finished the night 1-for-3 and is hitting .288/.315/.327 on the season. Today, 9:06 pm
  • Kris Bryant crushes homer in loss to Red Sox
    Kris Bryant crushed his fourth home run of the season as the Cubs fell to the Red Sox on Sunday night in Boston.

    Advice: Bryant's fifth-inning blast was the only damage off of Red Sox' starter Eduardo Rodriguez in this one. He finished the night 1-for-4 and is now hitting .289/.391/.515 with four homers and 14 RBI on the season. Today, 9:03 pm

  • Eduardo Rodriguez fans nine in no-decision
    Eduardo Rodriguez was dominant in a no-decision against the Cubs on Sunday night, striking out nine over six innings of one-run ball.

    Advice: The left-hander gave up five hits and walked two on the night. The only blemish on his evening was a solo homer off the bat of Kris Bryant in the fifth inning. He left in line for his second victory of the season, but the Red Sox' bullpen was unable to oblige. Rodriguez owns a 2.70 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 31/14 K/BB ratio through his first 23 1/3 innings on the season. He'll take on the Twins his next time out in Minnesota on Friday. Today, 9:03 pm
  • Brandon Drury has two hits in win on Sunday
    Brandon Drury went 2-for-6 with a double and a run scored as the Diamondbacks topped the Rockies in 13 innings on Sunday.

    Advice: Drury led off the 13th inning with an infield single and rode home on Daniel Descalso's walk-off home run. He has had a nice first month of the season at the plate, slashing .318/.370/.435 with a homer and eight RBI. Today, 5:32 pm
  • Leake goes six strong in no-decision
    Mike Leake tossed six innings of one-run ball Sunday in a no-decision versus the Reds.

    Advice: Cincinnati mounted a comeback against the St. Louis bullpen to steal a 5-4 victory at Busch Stadium. Leake gave up eight hits but struck out five and induced eight groundouts. He also issued just one walk. The 29-year-old right-hander will take an impressive 1.35 ERA and 0.99 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Braves. Today, 2:52 pm
  • Miguel Gonzalez gives up 14 hits in loss
    Miguel Gonzalez was pounded for seven runs -- six earned -- and 14 hits in six innings by the Tigers on Sunday.

    Advice: Gonzalez was due for a clunker after gems against the Yankees and Royals. He's the first pitcher this season to give up 14 hits in a start. Alfredo Simon and Cole Hamels were the only two to do so last year. Today, 2:45 pm
  • Carlos Correa goes 2-for-4 vs. Oakland
    Carlos Correa finished 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored Sunday in the Astros' defeat of the A's.

    Advice: Correa drove in George Springer with an RBI double in the bottom of the first before singling and scoring on a Marwin Gonzalez three-run homer in the bottom of the eighth. The star shortstop is beginning to produce at a more reliable rate after a short mid-April slump. He's slashing .233/.309/.349 overall on the year. Today, 2:37 pm
  • Folty falls to 0-3 in loss to Brewers
    Mike Foltynewicz allowed four runs -- one earned -- over six innings Sunday in a loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: Domingo Santana tagged him for two home runs, including a three-run shot that followed a Dansby Swanson error in the bottom of the sixth. Folty is now 0-3 on the season despite a 2.81 ERA. He struck out six and walked none on Sunday afternoon. The 25-year-old right-hander will hope for a little more luck in his next outing at home versus the Cardinals. Today, 2:10 pm
  • Freeman slugs ninth home run of season
    Freddie Freeman slugged his ninth home run of the year Sunday in the Braves' loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: It was a go-ahead shot in the top of the sixth, but the Braves' lead wouldn't survive the bottom of that frame. Freeman finished 1-for-3 on the afternoon. He's on pace for 63 home runs and 99 RBI. Today, 2:02 pm
  • Chase De Jong hit hard by Indians
    Chase De Jong was lit up in his first major league start, surrendering six runs in 2 2/3 innings against the Indians.

    Advice: De Jong didn't get any help from his teammates; the worst of the bunch was Ben Gamel losing Abraham Almonte's fly in the sun for an RBI "triple." Still, De Jong also didn't help himself much, finishing with just one strikeout and missing out of the zone with 33 of his 73 pitches. It's unclear if De Jong will get another start. Either he or Dillon Overton, who threw five innings in relief today, will likely be sent down in exchange for a fresh arm. Today, 2:01 pm
  • Rafael Montero expected to start on Friday
    Rafael Montero is expected to start for the Mets on Friday in place of the injured Noah Syndergaard.

    Advice: Syndergaard left Sunday's start due to a lat injury and is presumably heading to the disabled list. Montero has struggled in his limited time with the big league club this season, registering a 9.45 ERA and 3.60 WHIP in 6 2/3 innings. Today, 1:40 pm
    Not Active
  • Howie Kendrick (oblique) works out at 1B
    Howie Kendrick (oblique) worked out at first base during pre-game on Friday and Saturday.

    Advice: Kendrick doesn't figure to become a regular at first base, but with Tommy Joseph struggling and Aaron Altherr hitting he could see some starts at first. The veteran is due to come off the disabled list in about a week. Today, 9:35 am

    10-Day DL
  • Alex Bregman getting a breather Sunday
    Alex Bregman is not in the Astros' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It looks to be a simple day off. Carlos Beltran is also sitting out, as the Astros have Marwin Gonzalez at third base and Evan Gattis in the designated hitter spot. Today, 8:22 am
  • Sean Manaea (shoulder) lands on disabled list
    Athletics placed LHP Sean Manaea on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 27, with a left shoulder strain.

    Advice: He's expected to miss just one start, as the A's could afford to make a DL move with Manaea with Sonny Gray (lat) coming off the DL this week. The left-hander is eligible for activation on May 7. Today, 8:01 am
    10-Day DL
  • Matz (elbow) to throw off slope of mound
    Steven Matz (elbow) will throw off the slope of the mound on Sunday.

    Advice: He'll do so at "about 75 percent" effort, according to Mets general manager Sandy Alderson. Matz had expanded his flat-ground throwing out to 200 feet with no issues, clearing the way for the next step. He's making some nice progress but obviously still has a ways to go. Alderson said that Matz won't be an option for the Mets until at least late May at the earliest. Today, 7:25 am
    10-Day DL
  • James Shields (lat) makes 40 throws
    James Shields (lat) made about 40 light throws on Saturday and said he "felt good."

    Advice: It's unclear what the next step is for Shields at this point or if he'll require a rehab assignment before rejoining the White Sox' rotation. This is the first time in his 12-year career that Shields has been on the disabled list. Today, 6:15 am
    10-Day DL
  • Manuel Margot whiffs three times
    Manuel Margot finished 2-for-5 with an RBI and three strikeouts in Saturday's game against the Giants.

    Advice: You have to take the good with Margot. He has collected two or more hits in five of his past nine games, and he has 10 multi-hit games overall on the season. However, he has also struck out nine times over the past six outings, including at least once in each game. Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • Delino DeShields cannot take advantage
    Delino DeShields was hitless in three at-bats with a walk Saturday against the Angel.

    Advice: It was DeShields' first start against a right-handed starter this season and it didn't go well. The outfielder was rewarded with another start after posting a pair of multi-hit games against two southpaws. Until he proves he can hit right-handed pitching his fantasy appeal is rather limited.
