Elieser Hernandez (finger) allowed three earned runs over four innings Tuesday in a rehab game at High-A Jupiter.

He threw 77 pitches, yielding five hits and two walks while striking out three. Hernandez landed on the disabled list at the end of spring training following a dental procedure and then had to halt his rehab assignment earlier this month after cracking a fingernail. The Rule 5 Draft pick figures to join the Marlins' active roster in some kind of role (rotation or long relief) by mid-May.

Dan Straily (forearm) threw 88 pitches over 5 1/3 innings Tuesday in a rehab start with Double-A Jacksonville.

Straily allowed four runs -- three earned -- but he struck out six batters and only issued one walk. He could make his season debut this weekend, though nothing is official yet. "The biggest things with the guys out on rehabs is making sure that they are bouncing back the next day, so we'll see where he is (Wednesday)," Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday night. Straily landed on the disabled list at the end of spring training with inflammation in his right forearm.

Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) threw a successful 25-pitch bullpen session Tuesday at Tropicana Field.

Eovaldi has made a rather swift recovery from late-March arthroscopic elbow surgery. "Pretty remarkable, but knowing him not surprising," Rays manager Kevin Cash said Tuesday evening. "That's great. We've got to do a good job of managing him simply because he's so eager to get back, and he puts a lot of pressure on himself and his rehab." Eovaldi could feasibly join the Tampa Bay rotation around late May or early June, though perhaps the brakes should be pumped a bit for a guy who has required several elbow procedures in his career -- including two Tommy John surgeries.

Matt Duffy (hamstring) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment on Thursday.

Duffy had what manager Kevin Cash called "a really good workday" on Tuesday and he is scheduled to play in a simulated game Wednesday at the Rays' spring training complex in Port Charlotte. Assuming that goes smoothly, he will then appear in one or two minor league rehab games, either at High-A Charlotte or Triple-A Durham. The 27-year-old third baseman should be ready to come off the 10-day disabled list sometime this weekend.

Todd Frazier (toe) went 1-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored in his return to the Mets' lineup Tuesday.

Frazier suffered a minor bruise on his foot after getting spiked on Saturday, but he moved around just fine in Tuesday night's series opener against the Cardinals, a 10-inning win for the Mets. The third baseman is batting .261/.411/.464 with three homers, 14 RBI, and 14 runs scored through 21 games this season.
Apr 25 - 8:28 AM

Michael Taylor went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's loss in San Francisco.

Taylor's three-run homer off of Ty Blach in the top of the fourth inning accounted for all of Washington's offense in an off night in Frisco. Despite the homer he is still slashing just .220/.289/.354, so consider him only in NL-only fantasy leagues and some deeper mixed formats for his stolen base potential.
Apr 25 - 3:14 AM

Tanner Roark allowed four earned runs, six hits and two walks with four strikeouts over six innings in a loss at San Francisco on Tuesday.

Roark is now winless over his past four outings after winning his initial start of the 2018 season in Atlanta back on April 2. Walks and homers are to blame, as Roark has yielded five homers with 10 walks in 24 innings across the past four starts. He'll look to get back into the win column on Monday night in a favorable matchup against Chad Kuhl and the Pirates to kick off a two-start week.
Apr 25 - 3:12 AM

Joe Panik finished Tuesday's game against Washington with three singles over four at-bats while scoring twice.

Panik has posted a pair of three-hit games over his past three outings, raising his average from .254 to .286 just since April 21. He hasn't hit a home run since April 3 after showing an unusual display of power early in the season. That's not his game, but you can expect a solid average and a decent number of runs scored.
