White Sox OF prospect Micker Adolfo will undergo an MRI soon to check on his strained UCL and flexor tendon.

Adolfo is trying to "rest" the injury rather than undergo surgery, as going under the table would likely cause the 21-year-old to miss all of the 2018 season and could bleed into 2019. He recently told MLB.com's Scott Merkin that he doesn't feel strain or sore during workouts, which could be a positive sign. We should know more about Adolfo's ETA after the MRI.

Danny Farquhar will stay in the hospital for at least the next three weeks after having surgery to remove the swelling in his brain.

Farquhar suffered a hemorrhage in the sixth inning of Friday's game, and was rushed to the hospital after passing out in the dugout. He's currently listed as being in critical but stable condition, and reports indicate that more information isn't being released at the request of Farquhar's family.

Yasmani Grandal delivered a two-run double in the sixth inning on Sunday, helping to lead the Dodgers to a 4-3 victory over the Nationals.

Grandal got the Dodgers on the board with a two-run double off of Jeremy Hellickson in the sixth inning, sparking a three-run rally that would eventually springboard the Dodgers to victory. He also drew a walk in the contest, finishing the night 1-for-3. The hard-hitting backstop has been the Dodgers' biggest weapon on offense this season, slashing .349/.446/.587 with three homers and 16 RBI.

Chris Taylor went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored as the Dodgers came from behind to beat the Nationals on Sunday Night Baseball.

Taylor doubled off of Jeremy Hellickson with one out in the sixth inning, sparking a three-run rally that tied the game. He has struggled at the dish in the early going this season, slashing just .239/.277/.432 with three homers and eight RBI. He was also caught stealing on Sunday for the third time this season, and he has yet to successfully swipe a base.
Apr 22 - 11:34 PM

Kenley Jansen earned his third save of the season on Sunday, working a scoreless ninth inning to protect a one-run lead against the Nationals.

As has been the case throughout the season with Jansen, it wasn't easy. He allowed consecutive singles from Matt Adams and Wilmer Difo to begin the inning, before fanning Andrew Stevenson and Trea Turner and getting Howie Kendrick on a deep fly ball. Jansen now owns a 6.23 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 10/4 K/BB ratio through 8 2/3 innings on the season.
Apr 22 - 11:34 PM

Alex Wood logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Nationals on Sunday, allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits over his six frames.

The left-hander punched out four while walking one in the ballgame. He served up a solo homer to Michael Taylor in the fourth inning, then the Nats scratched out runs with sacrifice flies in each the second and sixth innings. Wood now sports a 3.72 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 26/2 K/BB ratio through his first 29 innings on the season. His next outing will come on Saturday against the Giants in San Francisco.

Michael Taylor had a monster day at the dish in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers, going 3-for-3 with a double and his first home run of the season.

Taylor also walked, scored a pair of runs and swiped a pair of bases. His solo shot in the fourth inning increased the Nationals' lead to 2-0. He'll never be expected to hit for a high average, but his combination of power and speed is certainly valuable in most mixed leagues. He's now hitting .224/.280/.329 with a homer, five RBI and eight stolen bases on the year.
Apr 22 - 11:29 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was handed his first loss of the season on Sunday, allowing three runs on three hits over 5 1/3 innings against the Dodgers.

Hellickson allowed a double to Corey Seager in the first inning, then kept the Dodgers at bay until the sixth, at one point retiring 14 consecutive hitters. The Dodgers finally broke through in the sixth, using three doubles to score three times and chase Hellickson from the game. He'll carry a 4.50 ERA and 1.30 WHIP into Saturday's matchup against the Diamondbacks.
