Tyler Clippard picked up his fifth hold with a scoreless eighth inning Monday against the Royals.

It looked like Clippard's tenure as a reliable setup man was winding down at this time last year, but he's been great since rejoining the Yankees, particularly this season. He's struck out 27 while giving up just three earned runs in 19 2/3 innings.

Jason Vargas yielded three runs in six innings Monday in a loss to the Yankees.

Vargas fared better in Yankee Stadium than he did five days ago in a home start against the Yankees, but homer count for the season did double from two to four, as both Brett Gardner and Didi Gregorius took him deep. More homers are on the way, probably this weekend when he pitches in Cleveland.
May 22 - 11:00 PM

Brett Gardner hit his ninth homer Monday off the Royals' Jason Vargas.

It's already the third-highest homer total of Gardner's career. He hit 17 in 2014 and 16 in 2015, but he hasn't reached double figures in any other season. That's about to change, obviously.

Mike Moustakas went 0-for-4 in Monday's loss to the Yankees and is hitting .212 with a .247 OBP over his last 20 games.

Remember a month ago when Moustakas was the Royals' offensive bright spot and everyone was wondering what was wrong with Eric Hosmer? Hosmer now has the better OPS by 30 points. Moustakas is still hitting for some power, but he's been a serious liability as a No. 2 hitter lately.

Jeff Hoffman held the Phillies to one run and three hits over seven innings to prevail Monday.

Hoffman struck out seven and walked none in his spot start. One would think he'd be due for a longer look given his performance in his two outings this month, but the Rockies, for perhaps the first time in franchise history, don't have any starters worth replacing. As a result, Hoffman likely will head back to Triple-A on Tuesday.
May 22 - 10:52 PM

Jerad Eickhoff fell to 0-5 after giving up four runs in six innings Monday against the Rockies.

Eickhoff was really unlucky in going 0-1 with a 2.55 ERA over his last four starts, but he has a 6.67 ERA while going 0-3 in the last five. Overall, the Phillies are 1-8 in his starts. A Triple-A stint still doesn't seem necessary, but with the Phillies perhaps looking to shake things up, he can't take anything for granted right now.
May 22 - 10:50 PM

Alexi Amarista finished 3-for-4 in Monday's rout of the Phillies.

Everything went wrong for the Rockies this spring, but they've had pretty great fortune since Opening Day. That's particularly apparent in Amarista's .975 OPS. He came in at .600, .544 and .567 for the Padres the previous three years.
May 22 - 10:46 PM

Cesar Hernandez went 0-for-4 in the loss to the Rockies on Monday.

Pete Mackanin has been doing a lot of lineup rearranging lately, but one thing he hasn't tried is taking Hernandez out of the leadoff spot. Hernandez has cooled off after a strong April, but he still seems like the right choice at the top now, even if he has hit .193 in his last 15 games.
