Orioles optioned LHP Jayson Aquino to Triple-A Norfolk.

Aquino was solid in a spot start for the O's but was then roughed up in consecutive relief appearances. He'll join Norfolk's rotation.

X-rays on Steven Souza's left hand came back negative.

Souza departed Saturday's game after being hit with a Joe Biagini 95 mph fastball, but he's managed to escape with a bruise. He's sore and might sit out Sunday but should ultimately be fine.

Nelson Cruz (hamstring) smacked a two-run homer Saturday in his return to the lineup.

Cruz missed Friday's game with a hamstring cramp but returned with a bang Saturday, swatting a two-run shot off of Danny Salazar in the first inning. It doesn't look like his hammy will be a lingering issue.

Justin Turner belted a game-tying pinch-hit home run in the bottom of the ninth inning Saturday against the Phillies.

The homer was Turner's first of the season, but fantasy owners cannot complain too loudly. He is hitting .388 with a .541 slugging percentage. The scruffy hot corner man has hit safely in 15 straight, longest active streak in the majors. He has at least one RBI in each of his past three outings.
Apr 30 - 2:44 AM

Cody Bellinger hit two home runs, including a solo shot in the bottom of the ninth inning, in Saturday's win against the Phillies.

The rookie was one of three players to hit back-to-back-to-back clouts off of Philadelphia closer Hector Neris, giving the Dodgers a miraculous comeback victory. Bellinger started out just 1-for-10 but he has back-to-back two-hit games, looking more and more comfortable at the plate by the at-bat. Manager Dave Roberts is on record saying Bellinger is headed back to OKC once Franklin Gutierrez (hamstring) and Joc Pederson (groin) are ready to return. However, Bellinger remains a decent short-term fantasy play until then.
Apr 30 - 2:39 AM

Brandon McCarthy was tagged for four runs, eight hits and a walk over just five innings in a no-decision Saturday against Philadelphia.

The Dodgers offense got McCarthy and his fantasy owners off the hook for the loss with three consecutive homers off of Phillies closer Hector Neris to give the home team a miraculous comeback victory. McCarthy has yet to take a loss in five starts. He has 25 strikeouts over 29 innings and continues to be a solid fantasy option. He faces a favorable matchup next weekend in San Diego.
Apr 30 - 2:35 AM

Andrew Knapp went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's road game against the Dodgers.

Knapp, a California native, was pumped for this start back in the Golden State. He delivered his first Major League homer with a career-high three hits to push his batting average to .304. Knapp won the backup gig behind Cameron Rupp in the spring and he has done nothing to change management's mind. However, he is only worth a look as a low-end No. 2 receiver in deeper NL-only play unless Rupp does down with a long-term injury at some point.
Apr 30 - 2:06 AM

Zach Eflin allowed two earned runs, four hits and no walks with four strikeouts over seven innings in a no-decision Saturday at L.A. Dodgers.

Eflin threw 68 of his 103 pitches for strikes and he deserved a better fate. Fantasy owners can send their hate mail to closer Hector Neris, as he served up three consecutive homers en route to a blown save to cost Eflin a victory. Eflin is expected to make his next scheduled start Thursday at Chicago Cubs.
