Paulo Orlando drew the start in right field and delivered two hits on Monday night.

The Royals seem to view Orlando as a backup-level player despite his .759 career OPS. Orlando now has a .382 batting average and may force the Royals to see how he can do as an everyday player even after Alex Gordon returns from the DL.

Desmond Jennings went 0-for-4 on Monday, dropping his batting average to .168 on the year.

The Rays were forced to turn to Jennings as their starting center fielder since Kevin Kiermaier’s broken hand will sideline him for 8-10 weeks. So far the returns have been brutal. Jennings’ .168/.237/.269 slash line has cemented him as one of the league’s worst players this year. The 29-year-old has a .713 career OPS, so there is a good chance he will bounce back at least a little bit, but his fantasy appeal is limited right now.

Erasmo Ramirez was blasted for four earned runs in only one-third of an inning on Monday night against the Royals.

Ramirez entered in the bottom of the eighth and gave up singles to Alcides Escobar, Whit Merrifield, and Lorenzo Cain before Eric Hosmer launched a 414-foot bomb to center field. The former starter’s glowing 2.37 ERA took a beating and now sits at 3.29 for the season.

Yan Gomes wore glasses in Monday's game against the Rangers.

Gomes, who was previously wearing contacts, has been thinking about making the change since the spring. It didn't help him at the plate Monday, as he went 0-for-4 with a strikeout and now owns an ugly .175/.211/.357 batting line through 38 games.
May 30 - 10:48 PM

Daniel Murphy went 3-for-4 with his eighth homer and 15th double to lead the Nationals past the Phillies 4-3 on Monday.

Murphy has been on fire since day one this year, and he shows no signs of slowing down. He's already more than half way to his career high of 14 homers, and his 1.047 OPS is 278 points higher than his career mark of .769 with the Mets.
May 30 - 10:23 PM

Tanner Roark yielded two runs and four hits in seven innings in a win over the Phillies on Monday.

Because the Nationals scored three runs in the top of the eighth, Roark won despite being outpitched by opposing starter Jeremy Hellickson, who allowed one run in seven innings. Roark improved to 4-4 with a 2.70 ERA.
May 30 - 10:21 PM

Bryce Harper is day-to-day with a right knee contusion.

Harper was forced to exit Monday's game against the Phillies after he was hit in the right knee by a pitch from Jeremy Hellickson. It doesn't sound like a major concern, but the Nationals will see how he feels on Tuesday.
May 30 - 10:20 PM

Jeremy Hellickson pitched seven strong innings Monday, holding the Nationals to one run and striking out eight.

Hellickson gave up a homer to Daniel Murphy and it looked like he might have allowed another one to Ryan Zimmerman, but it was ruled a triple instead and he stranded Zimmerman on third. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to get Hellickson a win, even though he left with a one-run lead. Hellickson is 4-3 with a 3.68 ERA after 11 starts, and he might have some trade value for the Phillies this summer.
