Yovani Gallardo fired six innings of two-run ball in Sunday's victory over the Yankees, allowing just four hits and a walk along the way.

Gallardo punched out six on the night. All of the damage against him came in the first inning on a two-out, two-run single by Brian McCann. He was able to settle in nicely afterwards though, keeping his team in the game and allowing the Rangers offense to come from behind. Now 4-6 on the season, he'll head into Friday's start against the Red Sox with a 4.13 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 40/16 K/BB ratio through 56 2/3 innings on the year.

Brian McCann went 1-for-4 with and plated both of the Yankees runs in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

His two-run single off Yovani Gallardo in the first inning gave the Bombers the early advantage, unfortunately that would be their extent of their offense on the evening. He's had a rough go of it at the plate this season, slashing just .233/.289/.383 with four long balls and 25 RBI.

Chris Capuano allowed two runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings in a losing effort against the Rangers on Sunday night.

The veteran southpaw racked up four strikeouts on the night without issuing a walk. He needed 84 pitches go get 13 outs, and departed with two men on and one out in the fifth. He has struggled since returning from the disabled list, posting a 7.36 ERA, 1.91 WHIP and 8/2 K/BB ratio through 7 1/3 innings in his first two starts. He'll hope for better results when he does battle against the Athletics in Oakland on Friday.

Jose Reyes (ribs) is set to be activated from the disabled list and rejoin the Blue Jays lineup on Monday.

He's making his way back from a cracked rib sustained in late April. Reyes went 4-for-11 with a pair of RBI in a three-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo over the weekend. He'll return to a .250/.266/.300 slash line with no homers, seven RBI and three stolen bases through 16 games.

Anthony Rendon (knee, oblique) is set to begin playing in simulated games on Monday.

Rendon went through a workout with team on Sunday, taking batting practice in the cage and fielding ground balls at third base. He'll play either three or four innings on Monday and will progress from there. Barring any setbacks, he's on track to join the Nationals in early June.

Doug Fister (forearm) said Sunday that he is feeling better and hopes to begin throwing soon.

Fister admitted that it's a slow process, noting, "The process of getting complete game ready is going to be a little bit, but I'm making strides every day." While it's a positive development, there is still no clear timetable for his return. Tanner Roark will occupy his spot in the rotation in the meantime.

Bobby Parnell (elbow) worked a scoreless inning in his first minor league rehab appearance with Double-A Binghampton on Sunday.

He allowed just a one-run double, but was able to strand the runner at third without incident. Parnell was reportedly hitting as high as 94 mph on the radar gun and struck out one in the ballgame. It's unclear how many appearances he will require before becoming an option for the Mets bullpen.

Nolan Arenado went 4-for-5 and finished a double shy of the cycle as the Rockies thrashed the Giants 11-2 in Colorado on Sunday.

His three-run blast off Jean Machi capped off an eight-run uprising in the fourth inning that gave the Rockies an early 9-0 lead. Arenado scored three runs and plated four in the impressive performance. He's now hitting .275/.321/.516 with eight homers and 25 RBI on the season.
