Justin Verlander was touched up for seven runs across five innings in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

The Indians jumped on Verlander for three runs in the first inning, and Francisco Lindor provided an exclamation point in the fifth with a three-run homer. Verlander has posted quality starts in four of his six tries this season, but he's been lit up for seven runs in each of his other two outings, resulting in an ugly 6.49 ERA. He'll try to bounce back this weekend at home versus the Rangers.
May 3 - 9:44 PM

Francisco Lindor went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer and three runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Tigers.

Lindor's long three-run homer in the bottom of the fifth inning off of Justin Verlander effectively ended the game, extending the Indians' lead to 7-2 at the time. It was the young shortstop's second longball of the season and pushed his RBI total up to 12. With a .315/.380/.438 batting line in his first 23 games, Lindor has certainly avoided a sophomore slump to this point.
May 3 - 9:41 PM

Alex Rodriguez was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Orioles with an apparent leg injury.

A-Rod appeared to tweak something in his right leg while running to first base in the top of the fifth inning and Dustin Ackley entered to hit for him in the top of the eighth. There should be an update after the game. This could be a big blow for the already-struggling Yanks.
May 3 - 9:31 PM

Ian Kinsler singled and smacked a two-run homer in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

Kinsler's shot to left field off of Josh Tomlin in the top of the fifth inning got the Tigers back in the game, but Francisco Lindor's three-run blast in the bottom of the frame essentially put the contest out of reach. After slugging a disappointing 10 homers last season, Kinsler already has five this year.
May 3 - 9:25 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) allowed three runs over six innings Tuesday with Triple-A Pawtucket.

But he didn't walk anybody and those three runs came on only five hits. It was a much better outing than his rehab debut with Pawtucket last Thursday, when Rodriguez gave up three runs on six hits and three walks in just 3 2/3 innings. The young left-hander should be a start or two away from returning to Boston.
May 3 - 8:54 PM

Aroldis Chapman is expected to make two appearances this week in the minors before joining the Yankees next Monday.

Chapman has been looking sharp in extended spring training games at the Yankees' complex in Tampa, Florida and he should roll through a pair of innings on the farm. Yankees manager Joe Girardi reiterated Tuesday that Chapman will immediately take over as the team's closer when he is activated May 9 from his domestic violence suspension. Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller will work as setup men in what promises to be a shutdown bullpen trio.
May 3 - 8:19 PM

Ben Revere (oblique) is on track to rejoin the Nationals this weekend in Chicago.

Revere is playing in his fifth rehab game Tuesday at Triple-A Syracuse, though he's yet to go a full nine innings. The speedy center fielder has been sidelined since the first game of the 2016 regular season because of a right oblique strain. Michael Taylor and Jayson Werth figure to lose playing time upon Revere's return to Washington's outfield mix.

Bronson Arroyo is now throwing side-arm or three-quarters in a final attempt to stave off retirement.

"Because it hurts if he gets on top," Nationals manager Dusty Baker explained Tuesday. "So we’re taking our time. And if not, if nothing else, he’s a good guy to have in your organization." Arroyo was re-signed to a minor league contract in late March and is currently rehabbing a torn rotator cuff at the Nationals' spring training complex in Viera, Florida. There's no exact timetable.
