Nationals prospect Joe Ross tossed seven shutout innings Saturday for Double-A Harrisburg.

Abel De Los Santos blew a three-run lead in the eighth, preventing Ross from picking up his first win of the year. Despite the no-decision, Ross was sensational Saturday, allowing just two hits and a pair of walks. Ross' eight strikeouts were a season-high. The right-hander threw 62 of his 96 pitches for strikes.

Freddie Freeman hit a pair of doubles in Sunday's loss to the Phillies.

Freeman finished the contest 2-for-4 with the two doubles and a run scored. He's now hit five doubles on the season. In every area but average, Freeman's been producing in the early going, as he has four home runs, eight RBI and 11 runs scored to go with a .235/.307/.485 batting line. Given that he hit .288 last season and .319 in 2013, that average isn't likely to stay low for long.

Nationals manager Matt Williams said Sunday that Max Scherzer (thumb) was unlikely to pitch on Tuesday.

Scherzer was unable to throw his scheduled bullpen session on Sunday due to his thumb still being swollen. The Nationals don't believe that he will miss multiple starts or require a stint on the disabled list. Tanner Roark is the most logical candidate to start in his place and makes for a decent streaming option against the Braves in Atlanta.

Miguel Cabrera finished 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI as the Tigers topped the Indians 8-6 on Sunday.

Miggy singled in the first inning, singled and scored in the third inning, jacked a two-run shot in the sixth inning, and then plated James McCann with a sacrifice fly in the eighth. Cabrera is off to a tremendous start in 2015, batting .377/.463/.580 with three home runs and 13 RBI in 19 games.
Apr 26 - 4:35 PM

Jonathan Papelbon was far from effective on Sunday, but still managed to secure his fourth save of the season despite allowing a ninth inning run to the Braves.

A solo home run by Alberto Callaspo inched the Braves to within 5-4, but Papelbon managed to shut the door in awkward fashion after that, inducing a Kelly Johnson flyball out with runners on first and second to secure his fourth save of the season. To be fair, the pitcher was home in bed with illness on Friday and it's very possible that he's still feeling the aftereffects of his ailment. He's saved four of the team's seven wins and now boasts a 1.23 ERA and 0.50 WHIP over 7 1/3 innings pitched. The Callaspo home run was the first run Papelbon has allowed this season.
Apr 26 - 4:34 PM

Marlins prospect Justin Nicolino kept his scoreless streak going with six shutout frames Saturday in a start for Double-A New Orleans.

The left-hander hasn't allowed an earned run since April 9. Nicolino, who was acquired from the Blue Jays two years ago in the Jose Reyes trade, has won his last two starts after opening the year with consecutive no-decisions. The 23-year-old went against former Cy Young winner Barry Zito on Saturday. Nicolino is the Marlins' fourth-ranked prospect according to MLB.com.

Kyle Lobstein yielded three earned runs over seven innings but the Tigers topped the Indians on Sunday.

Lobstein gave up six hits, walked two, and struck out four Cleveland batters in the solid outing. He's done a nice job of eating innings for the Tigers with Justin Verlander (triceps) on the shelf, boasting a 2-1 record and 3.50 ERA through 18 innings (three starts). A road date with the Royals is next.
Apr 26 - 4:30 PM

Marlins sent LHP Grant Dayton outright to Triple-A New Orleans.

Dayton was designated for assignment on Friday but passed through waivers unclaimed. He'll continue to provide organizational bullpen depth for the Fish and could get an opportunity with the big league club at some point during the 2015 campaign.
