Jorge Soler will undergo an MRI Tuesday on his ailing ankle.
The results are expected on Wednesday. Soler hurt the ankle when he landed awkwardly running to first base on Monday night. The Cubs haven't ruled out a potential stint on the disabled list.
Joc Pederson slugged a 477-foot homer in the first half of Tuesday's doubleheader in Colorado.
But the Dodgers went on to lose 6-3. Pederson also drew a walk in the game and is now batting .256/.383/.564 with 15 home runs, 29 RBI, and 30 runs scored in 51 games this season. Impressive stuff from the 23-year-old rookie.
Jorge De La Rosa picked up a win in the first half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers despite allowing three runs over six innings.
De La Rosa walked four and gave up a 477-foot Joc Pederson home run, but the Dodgers couldn't match Colorado's six-spot. De La Rosa is now 2-2 with a 6.15 ERA, 1.60 WHIP, and 37/19 K/BB ratio in 33 2/3 innings this season. He'll get the Marlins at home next.
Juan Nicasio allowed one run over two innings Tuesday in the first half of a doubleheader against the Rockies.
Los Angeles went on to lose the game 6-3. Nicasio hadn't thrown more than 38 pitches in an appearance this season, so he wasn't projected to last very long in his spot start Tuesday. The right-hander wound up throwing 41 pitches. He'll now head back to the bullpen.
Cameron Maybin (groin) remained out of the Braves' lineup Tuesday.
He's dealing with a minor groin ailment and has now missed two straight starts. Consider Maybin day-to-day. Todd Cunningham is filling in in center field.
Padres activated 1B Yonder Alonso from the 15-day disabled list.
Alonso missed nearly four weeks of action with a right shoulder injury, but he played in six rehab games with no issues. The first baseman was off to a .333/.427/.437 start this season before going on the DL.
Adam Lind (back) is back in the Brewers' lineup Tuesday.
Lind didn't start the last two games due to a back issues, although he had a pinch-hit single on Monday. He has a history of back problems but it appears this was just a minor bump in the road.
Giants pitching prospect Tyler Beede has been promoted from High-A San Jose to Double-A Richmond.
Beede tallied a career-high 11 strikeouts Saturday in his final start for San Jose and will finish his stay at High-A with a 2.24 ERA, 1.146 WHIP, and 37/9 K/BB ratio in 52 1/3 innings. The 22-year-old right-hander was the 14th overall pick in the 2014 MLB Amateur Draft.
