X-rays on Devin Mesoraco's left elbow came back negative.

The Marlins' Brian Anderson hit Mesoraco with his backswing Monday and burst a fluid sac, causing some swelling. He's fine, though, and expects to be available Tuesday, although it wouldn't be a surprise if he rested.

Mark Reynolds went 3-for-5 with two homers Monday as the Nationals crushed the Padres 10-2.

With half of the lineup on the DL, the Nationals' replacements sure are stepping up nicely. Reynolds has four homers in 18 at-bats since his callup. It doesn't figure to last, but he'll steal away Matt Adams' at-bats until he cools off.

Gio Gonzalez held the Padres to two runs and two hits over seven innings in a win Monday.

Gonzalez has gone 10 straight starts without allowing more than three runs, so he's on the same kind of pace that he was early last year. Of some interest is that Nationals manager Dave Martinez is giving him a longer leash of late; he's throwing 110 pitches in four of his last five starts and never doing so in his first five; he didn't even top 100 in four of his first five starts. Last year, he threw 110 pitches seven times in 32 starts, with the first time coming on May 19.

Robbie Erlin was tagged for six runs in four innings by the Nationals in a loss Monday.

Erlin was making just his second start to go along with 13 relief appearances this season. Relief work might suit him a little better, as he's been showing extra velocity out of the pen of late. It's never going to be easy for him to get through major league lineups three times when he's throwing 87-91 mph.

Joey Lucchesi (hip) has yet to progress beyond playing catch from 75 feet.

It was reported over the weekend that he was playing catch from 90 feet, but apparently that wasn't accurate. "I'm hopeful it can move faster," Padres manager Andy Green said, "but him playing catch to 75 feet doesn't give me a lot of optimism that he's coming back in the next week." Lucchesi has been on the DL for a week with a right hip strain.

Bryce Harper collected his 14th homer and his fifth double Monday against the Padres.

Harper leads the NL with 14 homers and 43 walks. He also has 33 RBI, so he's on a good early pace to perhaps reach the century mark for the first time. It's something that would have happened last year had he remained healthy (87 RBI in 111 games).

Juan Soto hit a three-run homer in his first at-bat and finished 2-for-4 in his first big-league start Monday against the Padres.

Soto didn't start against the lefty on Sunday, but he was in there against fellow southpaw Robbie Erlin tonight and he went deep in the second inning. The homer didn't come in his first major league at-bat, since he had one off the bench yesterday, but it was close enough. It seemed unlikely that he'd play much against lefties initially, but he helped his case here, even if Erlin has been worse against lefties than righties over the course of his career.

Franmil Reyes homered to give the Padres their only two run in a loss to the Nationals on Monday.

Too bad it will be overshadowed by Juan Soto's homer. Reyes, who homered off Gio Gonzalez, came into this one 2-for-17 with a 6/0 K/BB in six games since his callup. It's still too difficult to say whether he'll last in the Padres' lineup; he should be in there against every lefty the team faces as long as he's up, but playing time against righties might become more sporadic.
