Starling Marte went 1-for-5 with a three-run homer in Sunday's 9-1 win over the Mets.

Marte launched his bomb off of Erik Goeddel in the sixth inning. It was the young outfielder's ninth homer of the season and pushed his RBI total to an even 30. This is just a continuation of what's been a stellar year for Marte, who's hitting .278/.326/.513.

Jeff Mathis (finger) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A New Orleans on Sunday.

Mathis has been on the shelf since April 13 due to a fractured right ring finger. In his absence, J.T. Realmuto has emerged as the starting catcher for the Marlins, which isn't expected to change once Mathis returns.

Gio Gonzalez picked up his fourth win of the season after holding the Phillies to a lone run in 6 1/3 innings of work on Sunday.

The run scored in the fourth inning on a Jeff Francoeur single to left field. The lefty allowed seven hits and a walk while striking out seven in what was one of his best outings of the season. Gonzalez has otherwise been inconsistent, owning a 4.53 ERA with a 1.51 WHIP and a 50/19 K/BB ratio in 53 2/3 innings. He'll toe the rubber in Cincinnati against the Reds in his next start.
May 24 - 4:35 PM

Wilmer Flores went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Pirates.

Flores can proudly tell his grandchildren that he did not strike out against Francisco Liriano in a game that saw 12 strikeouts by the former Twin. Not only did Flores not strike out, he managed the only run for the Mets (on an RBI single in the fifth inning) and was the only Met to record more than one hit. He's hitting .252/.288/.417 with six homers and 16 RBI this season.
May 24 - 4:32 PM

Bryce Harper went 2-for-3 with a walk and two RBI as the Nationals beat the Phillies on Sunday.

Harper broke a 1-1 tie in the fifth inning with an RBI ground out. He provided insurance in the seventh inning with an RBI single, and soon thereafter scored from first base on a Ryan Zimmerman double. The 22-year-old phenom has looked unstoppable through two months, batting .333/.471/.728 with 16 home runs and 41 RBI.
May 24 - 4:32 PM

Brock Holt was removed early from Sunday's game against the Angels after he was struck in the arm by a line drive.

Holt hung around for another few innings afterwards, but claimed he started to lose feeling in his arm as the game wore on. Pablo Sandoval replaced him and finished the game at third base for the Red Sox. Holt should be considered day-to-day.
May 24 - 4:32 PM

Marlon Byrd went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Indians.

Byrd drilled a Trevor Bauer offering to left-center, putting the Reds on the board for the first time. He appeared to be figuring things out, but slumped over the last week, going 2-for-24 between May 15-22. Byrd has a mediocre .203/.275/.434 triple-slash line with nine home runs and 24 RBI.
May 24 - 4:29 PM

Cubs prospect Corey Black held his own Saturday for Double-A Tennessee, matching Montgomery left-hander Blake Snell in a classic pitcher's duel.

He gave up just one hit in five solid innings. Black fanned six hitters without allowing a walk. Though he hasn't won since his first outing of the season, Black owns an impressive 3.24 ERA across eight starts. He's been especially hard on lefties, limiting them to a .130 average in 16 2/3 innings. Out of 165 batters faced, only one has homered off Black this season.
