Blue Jays transferred OF Dalton Pompey from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.
The move was made over the weekend and cleared a spot for Leonel Campos on the 40-man roster. Pompey suffered a concussion on a slide during the recent World Baseball Classic and still isn't back to 100 percent. He'll now be eligible to return in June.
J.P. Howell (shoulder) struck out three in a scoreless frame Sunday on his minor league rehab assignment with High-A Dunedin.
Howell, who landed on the disabled list earlier this month with left shoulder soreness, has now thrown a pair of scoreless outings on his rehab stint. The southpaw appears on the verge of rejoining the Jays' bullpen.
Mets manager Terry Collins said after Sunday's game that Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) told him he'll be ready for Tuesday.
Cespedes sat out the entire weekend series against the Nationals due to a sore left hamstring, but he was available as a pinch-hitter for Sunday's game and was in the on-deck circle before the final out. It's not a sure thing he'll be ready for Tuesday, as the Mets will have him go through a pre-game workout before making a final decision. Still, he's sorely missed at the moment, as the Mets have dropped eight out of their last nine.
Nationals manager Dusty Baker confirmed Sunday that Jacob Turner will be recalled from Triple-A Syracuse to start on Monday against the Rockies in Colorado.
The Nationals were forced to shuffle their rotation with Stephen Strasburg going on paternity leave and Baker didn't want one of the club's prospects to be forced into making their MLB debut against the Rockies at Coors Field. Turner owns a career 5.09 ERA and 1.51 WHIP in 323 1/3 big league innings and will be a popular target to attack in daily fantasy on Monday.
Daniel Murphy belted a grand slam in the first inning on Sunday, powering the Nationals to a 6-3 victory over the Mets and a three-game sweep of the weekend series.
A hit-batsmen, an infield single and a sharp single loaded the bases in the first inning and Murphy unloaded them by taking Zack Wheeler over the wall in right-center on a 1-0 pitch. It was his only hit in four at-bats on Sunday but proved to be the difference. He's now hitting .324/.359/.541 with three homers and 14 RBI on the season.
Ryan Zimmerman crushed his sixth home run of the season as the Nationals bested the Mets on Sunday night in New York.
Zimmerman's two-run blast came courtesy of Josh Smoker and increased the Nationals' advantage to 6-3 in the eighth inning. He has been on fire at the plate to start the 2017 campaign, slashing .387/.441/.774 with six long balls and 16 RBI. He should be owned and started in even the shallowest of mixed leagues at this point.
Koda Glover earned a save for the second consecutive game on Sunday, retiring all three hitters he faced to preserve a three-run lead against the Mets.
Glover earned his first career save when he recorded the final out of Saturday's game against the Mets and it's interesting that he's the guy Dusty Baker turned to in this one with Shawn Kelley also available in the Nationals' bullpen. Glover now boasts a 2.35 ERA, 0.78 WHIP and 6/1 K/BB ratio in 7 2/3 innings.
Max Scherzer earned his third victory of the season on Sunday night, limiting the Mets to three runs on five hits over his eight frames.
The reigning National League Cy Young award winner racked up nine strikeouts on the night while walking only one. All of the damage against him came via the long ball, with Michael Conforto swatting a leadoff homer and Neil Walker adding a two-run blast in the third. He was in complete command after that though and retired the final 16 hitters he faced. Scherzer now sports a fantastic 1.98 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 33/8 K/BB ratio across 27 1/3 innings. He'll do battle against the Mets again his next time out at home on Friday.
