Trayce Thompson was removed from Saturday's game against the Mets due to lower back soreness.

Thompson left the game in the fifth inning and was replaced by Yasiel Puig in right field. It's unclear how this will effect the 25-year-old's playing time in the coming days. Thompson has enjoyed a breakout season, hitting .274/.336/.528 with seven home runs in 116 plate appearances.

Buster Posey hit a pair of three-run home runs as the Giants outlasted the Rockies 10-5 on Saturday.

Posey took Rockies starter Eddie Butler deep in the first inning before adding a second, three-run blast in the eighth. The two-homer game was his first of 2016, giving him seven bombs and 24 RBI overall. Posey is batting .268/.328/.470 through 45 games.

Eddie Butler allowed four runs over five innings in a no-decision Saturday against the Giants.

Butler gave up just four hits and a walk, but one of those hits was a three-run home run by Buster Posey in the first inning. Butler has pitched fairly well through 32 2/3 innings this year, posting a 4.13 ERA and 1.07 WHIP, but he's just 2-2 to show for it. He'll look to get back above .500 Thursday against the Reds.
May 28 - 8:32 PM

Madison Bumgarner pitched well at Coors Field on Saturday, limiting the Rockies to one run over six innings, but didn't factor in the decision.

Bumgarner left with a 4-1 lead, but his bullpen subsequently gave up four runs in the bottom of the seventh. Preserving that lead included a high-wire act in the sixth inning, when the Rockies loaded the bases with no outs, but Bum struck out Ryan Raburn and got a double play from Cristhian Adames to end the threat. The southpaw struck out six while walking two and allowing five hits on the afternoon. Bumgarner owns a 2.12 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 83/22 K/BB ahead of a start against the Braves on Thursday.
May 28 - 8:29 PM

Carlos Santana went 2-for-5 with an RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in an 11-4 drubbing of the Orioles on Saturday.

Batting atop the Indians order, Santana played the part of leadoff hitter, collecting a couple hits and stealing his third base of the season. Without much fanfare, he's now reached base safely in 10 straight games. The 30-year-old is hitting .231/.345/.438 with eight homers, 24 RBI and 24 runs scored on the year.
May 28 - 8:23 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez gave up six runs for the third straight start -- although just three were earned -- in a loss to the Indians on Saturday.

A fielding error in the first inning made three of the Indians' four runs unearned, but it's not as though Jimenez was much better. The right-hander lasted just 1 2/3 innings, allowing five hits and walking three before exiting. He's now 2-6 with a 6.36 ERA for a team with aspirations of winning the AL East. It's hard to imagine they'll continue running him out there much longer when he's pitching like this, but his next scheduled start, until further notice, is set for Thursday against the Red Sox.

Noah Syndergaard was ejected from Saturday night's game against the Dodgers for throwing in the general direction of Chase Utley in the third inning.

Syndergaard appeared to try and hit Utley with a pitch, but missed. He was immediately ejected and manager Terry Collins was subsequently ejected for arguing. It's assumed that Syndergaard was responding to Utley's take-out slide on Ruben Tejada last October. The right-hander had only allowed two hits in 2 1/3 scoreless innings prior to his getting sent off.
May 28 - 8:05 PM

Danny Salazar allowed two runs over six innings in a win over the Orioles on Saturday.

Salazar gave up six hits and walked two to earn his fifth win of the year. He continues to be one of the best pitchers in the American League, posting a 2.39 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 72/28 K/BB ratio over 60 1/3 innings of work. He's presently second in the league in strikeouts and fourth in ERA among qualified starters. Salazar will next take on the Royals on Thursday.
