Juan Nicasio surrendered two runs on six hits over six innings in Tuesday's 3-2 victory over the Padres.

Nicasio struck out six in each of his first two outings and fell off to three tonight, but everything else was encouraging. He issued only one free pass. The right-hander has sandwiched two quality starts around last week's rough outing against the White Sox. Add it all up and he's 2-0 with a 3.50 ERA and 1.22 WHIP through three outings. He’ll face off against the Phillies at home on Sunday.

Robbie Erlin fanned seven but lasted only 4 2/3 innings in Tuesday's 3-2 loss against the Rockies.

He coughed up three runs on six hits and a walk. During Erlin's last frame, home plate umpire Jeff Nelson's strike zone drew the ire of San Diego hitting coach Phil Plantier, who was promptly kicked out of the game. Erlin, 1-1 with a 3.18 ERA and 0.97 WHIP, has an impressive 14/1 K/BB rate over his first 11 1/3 innings. The 23-year-old southpaw faces Tim Lincecum and the Giants in San Diego on Sunday.

Mets manager Terry Collins said after Tuesday's game that Jenrry Mejia has "one hell of a blister."

Collins added that Mejia "tore it up completely" during Tuesday's start and that there is "concern" about the righty. That said, he also didn't rule out Mejia making his next start. The Mets are off Thursday, so the club could give Mejia an extra day of rest.

Although the Blue Jays are listing him as day-to-day, Adam Lind (back) admitted that it "would be a miracle" if he felt better Wednesday.

Lind was lifted from Tuesday's game with lower back tightness. It's sounding like an injury that could ultimately force him to the disabled list, but we'll just have to see how he recovers. At the very least, he figures to miss the next couple games.

In his return to the big league lineup, Kirk Nieuwenhuis went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in Tuesday's 9-0 win against the Diamondbacks.

Recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas earlier in the day to provide depth with Juan Lagares (hamstring) hitting the DL, Nieuwenhuis wasted no time getting started. His two-run shot off Bronson Arroyo came as part of a six-run fourth inning that turned this one into a laugher early. With Chris Young (quad) due back later this week, Nieuwenhuis needs to keep producing to save his roster spot.
Apr 16 - 12:35 AM

Eric Young Jr. finished 3-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 9-0 blowout win over the Diamondbacks.

Young has now reached safely in 11 straight games. He provides zero power -- he's collected two doubles, one triple, and zero homers thus far -- but wreaks havoc on the basepaths when he gets on. Young is currently second in the NL with seven steals, and he's fifth in the league with 11 runs scored. Monitor his playing time closely once Chris Young returns.

Bronson Arroyo was lit up by the Mets for nine runs on 10 hits over 3 1/3 innings of a 9-0 loss on Tuesday.

He threw 64 batting practice pitches, basically. It's bad enough that GM Kevin Towers is already feeling buyer's remorse three starts into Arroyo's Arizona career without considering that the rest of the rotation has done their best pitching machine impersonations thus far as well. Arroyo now owns a 9.95 ERA, while the Snakes staff as a whole has posted a 7.71 ERA. This is why Arizona is 4-13 overall, and 1-10 at the launching pad known as Chase Field. This Diamondbacks squad is taking on water, and it'll be interesting to see how Towers decides to go about draining the hull. Either way, even against the Cubs, you want nothing to do with Arroyo even in an All-Bronson league next time out. Make him prove it first.

Astros designated RHP Lucas Harrell for assignment.

Harrell surprisingly cracked the Opening Day rotation, but he floundered with a 9.49 ERA over his first three starts. The Astros could move Jerome Williams in from the bullpen to take Harrell's rotation spot.
