Hector Neris needed eight pitches to throw a perfect ninth and earn his ninth save Monday against the Braves.

Gabe Kapler is getting more creative with his pen, but he hasn't given up on Neris, who earned his first save since giving up three runs in blowing a game against the Mets 10 days ago. He's a subpar 9-for-12 in save chances this year, though he's given up runs in just four of his 20 appearances.

Mike Foltyniewicz took a tough loss after allowing one run in six innings Monday against the Phillies.

Folty has allowed three runs -- one earned -- in his last three starts, but he has just one win to show for it. It doesn't help that he hasn't been able to pitch deep into games -- he completed six innings for the third time in 10 starts tonight, but he's yet to go beyond that -- but he's been really effective for a team that seems to have little trouble scoring runs for its other starters.

Nick Williams went 2-for-4 and homered Monday in the victory over the Braves.

Williams got the start over Aaron Altherr in this one, but he didn't actually help his cause over Altherr, since Altherr hit a two-run homer in his lone at-bat off the bench. Those two homers accounted for all of the Phillies' scoring tonight. Williams has been performing better in limited action this month, going 10-for-32 with two homers. That's raised his OPS from .532 to .685.

Maikel Franco went hitless in a third straight start Monday and is in a 3-for-30 slump.

Franco still has 29 RBI in 40 games this year, but his OPS is back down to .734 now after a strong first 10 days of May. Still, he shouldn't have to worry much about playing time as long as J.P. Crawford is out, and even with his slump, he still has 130 points of OPS over Scott Kingery.

Astros released 1B Jon Singleton.

The former top prospect batted just .171/.290/.331 over 420 plate appearances with the Astros from 2014-15 and didn't hit much the last two years in the minors, either. He was suspended 100 games in January following a third positive test for a drug of abuse. Singleton is still just 26 and should resurface somewhere, but obviously his future outlook is cloudy.

Brock Stewart is on the Dodgers' taxi squad and lined up to start Tuesday against the Rockies.

The Dodgers don't want to officially name him the starter yet for whatever reason, but he'll be taking the ball unless something unexpected happens. Stewart is taking Rich Hill's (blister) spot in the rotation.

Clayton Kershaw (biceps) will throw another bullpen session Wednesday before throwing a simulated game Saturday.

He threw his first bullpen session since his biceps injury on Sunday and played catch Monday. The simulated game could be in lieu of a rehab start, and if that's the case Kershaw could be ready to rejoin the Dodgers' rotation late next week. He's been sidelined for nearly all of May.

Steven Souza has experienced marginal improvement with his strained right pectoral.

While the feeling is that this strain is less serious than the one that cost him six weeks earlier this season, it sounds like he could still head back to the disabled list. The Diamondbacks can backdate his DL stint the maximum three days if they make a move Tuesday, so we'll likely find out then what they'll do.
