Max Kepler had an RBI single and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

Kepler plated the first run of the game with an RBI single in the fifth inning. He also walked twice in the contest, and one of those walks turned into a run in the decisive eighth inning. Kepler is having another productive year in the Twins lineup, batting .250/.337/.466 with six homers, 19 RBI and 19 runs scored in 42 games.

Yankees optioned OF Clint Frazier to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

This move was expected, as Frazier was only supposed to be with the club for a couple of games. He'll continue to play everyday at Triple-A until the Yankees have a need for an outfielder.
May 20 - 7:00 PM

Adam Plutko will be recalled from Triple-A Columbus to start for the Indians on Wednesday against the Cubs in Chicago.

He'll get the first crack at filling the open rotation spot that was vacated by Josh Tomlin's demotion to the bullpen. Plutko, 26, allowed three runs over 7 1/3 innings in his lone spot start with the Indians this season.
May 20 - 6:57 PM

Indians' manager Terry Francona said Sunday that struggling right-hander Josh Tomlin will work out of the bullpen for now.

Tomlin owns a cringe-inducing 7.84 ERA and 1.68 WHIP through 31 innings in seven appearances (six starts) this season, so this move is certainly warranted. Adam Plutko will be recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday to start in Tomlin's place.
May 20 - 6:54 PM

Ender Inciarte said after Sunday's game that he's a little sore but expects to play on Monday.

Inciarte collided with the outfield wall during the fourth inning of Sunday's game against the Marlins, but it sounds like he was lucky to have avoided any injuries. The 27-year-old speedster is hitting .268/.322/.377 with four homers, 19 RBI and 18 stolen bases on the year.
May 20 - 6:50 PM

Fernando Rodney struck out the side in the ninth inning Sunday against the Brewers, earning his ninth save of the season.

Protecting a two-run lead, Rodney made quick work of Domingo Santana, Jonathan Villar and Tyler Saladino to finish the Brewers off. Rodney had a few blips in late April but has been lights out in May, rattling off eight scoreless appearances while securing six saves. The good stretch has reasserted his place in the back end of the Twins' bullpen, and has lowered his ERA to 2.87 in 17 appearances this year.
May 20 - 6:46 PM

Blue Jays optioned INF Richard Urena to Triple-A Buffalo.

No word yet on a potential corresponding move for the Blue Jays. The 22-year-old went hitless in three plate appearances on Sunday. He's hitting .278/.278/.444 in 19 plate appearances at the big league level this season. He'll assuredly get another opportunity with the Jays later this season.
May 20 - 6:38 PM

Junior Guerra allowed a run on four hits over 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Twins.

Guerra only gave up four hits and issued two walks, but it was the inefficiency with which he got outs -- Guerra threw 91 pitches and only 49 strikes -- that precipitated his early exit. Pitching deep into games hasn't been his strong suit -- after Sunday, he's gotten through six innings in just two of eight starts -- but Guerra has been effective when on the mound, posting a 2.98 ERA on the year. Guerra will next take on the Mets on Friday.
