Mark Trumbo went 1-for-4 with a three-run double in Sunday's win over the Indians.
Trumbo jumped the Orioles to an early 3-0 lead when he stepped up with the bases loaded and cleared them with a double off Mike Clevinger in the first inning. It would be his only hit on the afternoon. The 30-year-old outfielder boasts a dazzling .293/.341/.581 triple-slash with 15 homers and 37 RBI. He has picked up five RBI over his last three games.
Mike Napoli went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Sunday's loss to the Orioles.
Napoli unloaded for a two-run home run off Chris Tillman in the fourth inning. The tater was his 10th of the season. In addition to the 10 long balls, he has driven in 35 runs while hitting to a .233/.305/.471 triple-slash across 172 at-bats. So long as the veteran slugger can stay healthy, the power and RBI production should be there all season.
Mariners transferred RHP Evan Scribner to the 60-day disabled list.
Scribner is recovering from a right lat strain and has been on the disabled list since spring training. He's expected to be ready to rejoin the M's bullpen at some point in June.
Mariners acquired INF/OF Patrick Kievlehan from the Rangers for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
The Rangers designated the utility man for assignment earlier in the week and were looking to flip him for anything that they could get. Kievlehan returns to the M's organization after being dealt away in the trade that sent Leonys Martin to the Mariners.
Mike Clevinger struggled in a no-decision against the Orioles on Sunday, yielding four runs on four hits over four innings.
Clevinger struck out four and walked three on the afternoon. Three of the four runs to score on his watch came home courtesy of a bases-clearing double by Mark Trumbo in the very first inning. The 25-year-old right-hander has now made three starts and has allowed at least four runs in all of them. He will try for a better result in a home start against the Royals next time out.
Chris Tillman struggled to keep the ball in the park during Sunday's win over the Indians, allowing three home runs and four total runs over six innings.
Carlos Santana and Mike Napoli burned Tillman for a pair of home runs in the fourth inning. Napoli's was of the two-run variety. Jason Kipnis would hit a solo shot off the right-hander in the sixth to polish off the scoring on his line. Tillman has now allowed five home runs over his last three starts after surrendering just one dinger through his first seven outings. Despite his recent homer-happy ways, Tillman owns a smooth 2.92 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 61/27 K/BB ratio over 64 2/3 innings. He will hit the road for a date with the Yankees next time he toes the rubber.
Rays activated RHP Brad Boxberger from the 15-day disabled list.
Rays skipper Kevin Cash has already announced that he'll ease Boxberger back into the ninth inning role, which he has the luxury of doing with Alex Colome pitching well in the closer's role. It's likely that Boxberger will return to that role within a week or so.
Rays placed RHP Ryan Webb on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 27, with a right pectoral strain.
The 30-year-old right-hander isn't expected to be out long, and could return after a minimum stint on the disabled list. In 17 outings before hitting the shelf, he posted a 3.31 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 10/3 K/BB ratio over 16 1/3 innings.
