Matt Joyce went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Joyce clocked a solo home run off Clay Buchholz in the first inning to give the A's an early 1-0 lead. The dinger was his sixth of the season. For the campaign as a whole, the veteran outfielder is slashing .211/.331/.394 with six home runs and nine RBI in 48 games played. He should be good for double-digit long balls when all is said and done this year, but his bat doesn't bring much else to the fantasy table.

Paul Goldschmidt went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the A's.

Goldschmidt's been surprisingly quiet with the bat this season and Saturday's game continued that trend. Overall, the usually-dependable slugger is slashing just .201/.319/.380 with six home runs and 16 RBI in 51 games played this year. The numbers are discouraging, but Goldschmidt is a far better hitter than what he's shown this season and even if he can't quite get his numbers back to what we're accustomed to seeing -- and there's still plenty of runway to land that statistical plane -- he is a prime buy-low candidate for fantasy purposes.

Hisashi Iwakuma (shoulder) will face live hitters Tuesday.

The right-hander threw a bullpen session Friday and came out of it well, allowing him to take the next step. Iwakuma hasn't pitched yet this year after an arthroscopic debridement procedure on his right shoulder in September and a setback in late April when he experienced soreness in the shoulder. It's still unclear when he might return to the Mariners rotation.

Cubs recalled LHP Randy Rosario from Triple-A Iowa.

Rosario was just sent down less than a week ago, but Yu Darvish's triceps injury created a need for another arm. Rosario has a microscopic 0.47 ERA in 12 appearances at Triple-A this year and threw two scoreless innings in his only big league outing a week ago.
May 26 - 6:50 PM

David Peralta went 1-for-4 in Saturday's loss to the A's.

The Diamondbacks managed just a pair of singles off a dominant Daniel Mengden in this one. Peralta had a knock, Socrates Brito had a knock and that was it in terms of the team's offensive action on the afternoon. That single by Peralta actually extended a hitting streak to six games. So there was that. Otherwise, nothing to write home about for the road team. On the whole, the outfielder is slashing .268/.340/.436 with seven home runs and 21 RBI across 179 at-bats this season.
May 26 - 6:49 PM

Cubs placed RHP Yu Darvish on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 23, with right triceps tightness.

Darvish owns a disappointing 4.95 ERA in eight starts, so perhaps this injury has contributed to some of his struggles. It's unclear when the triceps injury occurred, though, especially since his last outing was a positive one. Tyler Chatwood will make Darvish's scheduled Sunday start.
May 26 - 6:47 PM

X-rays taken on Dexter Fowler's right knee Saturday were negative, and he's considered day to day.

Fowler was hit in the knee by Trevor Williams in the fourth inning of Saturday's game, requiring assistance just to get off the field, but it appears he avoided any serious damage. The knee will likely still be sore Sunday, so the outfielder may require another day or two before he's back in the lineup. Tyler O'Neill should draw the starts while Fowler is out.

Daniel Mengden was brilliant in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Diamondbacks, tossing a complete game shutout while allowing just two hits over his nine innings of work.

Beautiful, beautiful outing by Mengden. He struck out five without walking a batter on the afternoon and finished up having thrown an economic 102 pitches (72 strikes). He's been hot all season, but right now he's blazing, having fired off 16 shutout frames with just four hits allowed over his last two starts combined. On the macro scale, he has held the opposition to one or no runs in six of his last eight starts. The 25-year-old right-hander will try to make it three straight shutout performances when he carries his 2.85 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 43/6 K/BB ratio (66 1/3 frames) into a home start against the Rays next time out.
