Adam Warren picked up his second victory of the season on Sunday despite allowing four runs on four hits over his 5 2/3 innings of work.

Warren fanned two and walked two on the evening. After being staked to an early lead, Warren cruised through four innings unscathed before running into a buzzsaw in the sixth. Two of the four runs charged to him scored on a Mike Napoli home run after he left the game. Warren will bring a 4.78 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 14/10 K/BB ratio into his next start against the Orioles on Friday.

Mike Napoli launched a three-run homer in a losing effort against the Yankees on Sunday night.

His towering drive off Esmil Rogers capped a three-run Red Sox uprising in the sixth inning, pulling them to within three at 8-5, though that would be as close as the score would get. Napoli finished the night 1-for-3 and also drew a walk. He has been in quite the funk offensively through the first month-plus of hte season, hitting .167/.278/.295 with two homers and seven RBI.

Joe Kelly was hit hard in a losing effort against the Yankees on Sunday, surrendering five runs on nine hits over 4 2/3 frames.

Kelly struck out three and didn't issue a walk in the ballgame. The Yankees got to him early, with Mark Teixeira blasting a two-run homer in the first inning. They would tack on another three runs in the third to jump out to a commanding lead. Kelly has struggled during his time in the Red Sox rotation, compiling a 5.72 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 31/8 K/BB ratio over 28 1/3 innings. He'll look to right the ship when he does battle against the Blue Jays in Toronto on Saturday.

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Brewers are not expected to hire Ron Gardenhire as their next manager.

With Ron Roenicke getting the axe late on Sunday, there have been rumblings that Gardenhire could be his successor, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Craig Counsell seems like an option that is gaining steam and could be the mystery man announced on Monday.

Dodgers designated RHP Scott Baker for assignment.

The Dodgers are expected to recall an extra bullpen arm to fulfill his spot on the active roster. Baker posted a 5.73 ERA over 11 innings with the Dodgers. There's a decent chance that he'll attract interest from elsewhere.
May 3 - 11:14 PM

Corey Brock of MLB.com reports that the Padres are expected to recall Austin Hedges from Triple-A El Paso on Monday.

Brock notes that Hedges will join the team in San Francisco in time for Monday's series opener. Widely regarded as one of the top defensive catching prospects in all of baseball, it's unclear how much action Hedges will see with the Padres. The 22-year-old was hitting .343/.413/.552 with two homers and 15 RBI in 20 games at El Paso.
May 3 - 11:05 PM

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Twins have had internal discussions about hitting Joe Mauer leadoff.

With his ability to get on base and work a walk, combined with the disappearance of his power in recent years, the idea makes sense. He's off to a nice start hitting out of the three-hole though, slashing .302/.382/.396 with no homers and 13 RBI.

Brewers general manager Doug Melvin announced Sunday evening that the team has fired manager Ron Roenicke.

The organization will name Roenicke's successor on Monday. The Brewers exercised his option for the 2016 season only six weeks ago despite the fact that they stumbled down the stretch in 2014. Milwaukee currently own the worst record in the National League at 7-18 and the club sits 11 1/2 games back in the National League Central standings.
