Giants placed RHP Jake Peavy on the 15-day disabled list with a back strain.

This had to be done as Peavy hasn't looked right in either of his two starts this season. With Ryan Vogelsong already filling in for Matt Cain (flexor tendon strain), Yusmeiro Petit seems likely to replace Peavy in the starting rotation. Andrew Susac was called up from Triple-A to fill Peavy's roster spot.

Matt Carpenter went 2-for-4 with a two-run double Saturday's win over the Reds.

There might not be a hotter hitter than Carpenter right now. He now has six straight multi-hit games and has more doubles (seven) than Albert Pujols, Victor Martinez, Jose Bautista, and Yasiel Puig have hits, just to name a few. He's hitting .390 so far.
Apr 18 - 5:58 PM

Jason Heyward connected for a solo homer Saturday against the Reds.

It was his first home run of the season and his only hit in four at-bats on Saturday. Hitting .227 through 10 games, Heyward is off to a slow start with his new team, but this isn't something out of the ordinary. He came into Saturday's action with a .729 OPS between March and April for his career. Things should get better as the calendar flips to May and beyond.
Apr 18 - 5:58 PM

Zack Cozart went 3-for-4 with a solo homer in Saturday's loss to the Cardinals.

His fifth-inning blast off Carlos Martinez was his first home run of the season and the only offense of the game for the Reds. The 29-year-old has hit safely in seven straight games and is batting .368 (14-for-38) on the young season, but with his poor plate discipline, it's unlikely to last.
Apr 18 - 5:57 PM

Giants recalled C Andrew Susac from Triple-A Fresno.

Susac lost the backup catcher job to Hector Sanchez this spring. He probably won't be up long.
Apr 18 - 5:52 PM

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is back in the Dodgers' starting lineup Saturday versus the Mariners.

Puig missed three games while nursing a hamstring injury. Fortunately it wasn't serious enough to land him on the DL. Puig has been boom or bust this year, jacking two homers but also striking out seven times. Carl Crawford will head to the bench with Puig back in the lineup.
Apr 18 - 5:39 PM

Billy Hamilton is day-to-day with a sore groin.

Hamilton tweaked a groin muscle Saturday when he leaped awkwardly over Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams after beating out a hard grounder to second base. The young speedster looked to be in a good amount of pain and can probably be ruled out for Sunday night's series finale in St. Louis.
Apr 18 - 5:37 PM

Royals recalled INF Orlando Calixte from Triple-A Omaha.

Calixte gives the Royals some needed shortstop depth while Alcides Escobar recovers from a knee injury. Calixte, 23, is a .242/.299/.370 career hitter in the minors.
