Nationals prospect Wilmer Difo collected five hits Saturday for High-A Potomac.

One of the hits was Difo's first career grand slam. Last year's South Atlantic League MVP continues to impress every step of the way. The 23-year-old swiped 49 bases for Low-A Hagerstown in 2014 and already has three thefts for Potomac. Difo could be headed for a promotion if this keeps up.

Christian Yelich went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Mets.

Yelich, who signed a seven-year, $49.57 million contract extension in March, is off to a miserable start. Sunday's performance dropped his average to .200 and he has only one extra-base hit and one stolen base. He has come to the plate only 49 times, which is a small sample size, but it's not the start to the season the Marlins envisioned when they agreed to the pact with Yelich last month. Perhaps some of Yelich's struggles can be explained by a recent bout with back tightness.

Ruben Tejada went 1-for-4 with a three-run double as the Mets escaped with a win over the Marlins on Sunday.

Tejada struck the big blow in the Mets' seven-run fourth inning, clearing the bases with a double to chase Tom Koehler from the game. It was only Tejada's third start of the season. He'll still mostly be relegated to the bench despite the recent injury to third baseman David Wright.

Billy Hamilton (groin) is not in the Reds' lineup Sunday.

Hamilton strained his groin during Saturday's game and is listed as day-to-day. Brennan Boesch is taking his spot in center field. Devin Mesoraco (hip), as expected, is also still out, with Tucker Barnhart catching Mike Leake. The Reds are also going with Skip Schumaker in left field over Marlon Byrd.

Jason Grilli set the Blue Jays down in order in the ninth inning to earn his sixth save as the Braves won 5-2 on Sunday.

Grilli struck out Justin Smoke, got Kevin Pillar to pop up, and struck out Dalton Pompey to end the game. The Braves have been just fine without Craig Kimbrel, as Grilli is 6-for-6 converting saves with a 1.80 ERA and a 10/2 K/BB ratio in six innings.

Daniel Norris took the loss on Sunday, yielding five runs (four earned) in 2 2/3 innings versus the Braves.

The Braves got to Norris quickly, loading the bases ahead of a three-run Jonny Gomes double in the first inning. They tacked on two more in the third inning. Overall, Norris surrendered six hits with two walks and a strikeout. The lefty hasn't been sharp in any of his three starts, currently carrying a 6.08 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP. Norris will try to get on the winning track in his next start in Tampa against the Rays.

Ben Zobrist left Sunday's game against the Royals with an apparent injury.

Zobrist didn't suffer any obvious injury but had to be removed while playing defense in the fifth inning. He's dealt with a heel issue recently, so that could be the culprit. Expect more information on his status soon.
Apr 19 - 3:57 PM

Omar Infante left Sunday's game versus the Athletics with an apparent leg injury.

Infante was spotted wincing in the fifth inning as he pulled into second base with a double. The Royals could be without both of their middle infielders for a bit with Alcides Escobar (knee) also sidelined. Expect an update on Infante shortly.
