Antonio Bastardo (quad) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday.

Bastardo made two appearances in extended spring training this week and apparently felt good enough to begin a minor league rehab stint. A strained left quad has sidelined him since late April.
May 27 - 9:10 PM

Josh Lindblom (side) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday.

Lindblom landed on the DL with side discomfort about a week ago and could be activated as soon as his 10 days are up. The right-hander holds a 7.94 ERA over four big league outings this year.
May 27 - 9:09 PM

J.C. Ramirez yielded only an unearned run over seven innings of work Saturday in a win over the Marlins.

Ramirez scattered seven hits and a walk in the latest installment of what's been a wildly successful first two months for the right-hander. The win improved him to 5-3 with a 3.38 ERA and 1.16 WHIP through 12 games, including nine starts. He's provided impressive length in those nine starts, four times going seven innings and registering five quality starts. He'll get back to facing American League opponents Thursday when the Angels host the Twins.

According to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, "indications" are that Danny Salazar could be moved to the bullpen.

Cleveland will need to bump someone from the starting rotation with Corey Kluber (back) returning Thursday against the Athletics. With Mike Clevinger pitching extremely well (2-1, 2.82 ERA), it looks like Salazar could be the odd man out. Salazar only has three quality starts in 10 outings this year while struggling to a 5.50 ERA.

Mike Moustakas went 3-for-4 with a home run to help the Royals best the Indians 5-2 on Saturday.

He's now homered in three of his past four games, and the third baseman has 13 homers in 43 games this year. It's been a much-needed surge for the 28-year-old, whose average had dipped to .250 in the middle of this month after his hot start to the year. Through Saturday, Moustakas is hitting .260/.297/.526 with 26 RBI and 23 runs scored.
May 27 - 8:58 PM

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in a loss to the Royals on Saturday.

Lindor took Royals starter Jason Vargas deep as the second batter the southpaw faced, his 11th homer of the season. He also attempted to start a rally in the ninth inning with a two-out double, but he was stranded on second base to end the game. Lindor quietly has a 12-game hitting streak going, leaving him with a .283/.346/.545 line, 11 homers, 24 RBI and 33 runs scored overall.
May 27 - 8:55 PM

Alcides Escobar had a two-run double and scored a run in a win over the Indians on Saturday.

Escobar came to the dish with the bases loaded in a tie game in the sixth inning, and he proceeded to swat a two-RBI double to give the Royals a lead they wouldn't relinquish. It was his only hit in five at-bats. Hits have been hard to come by for the 30-year-old, who has just 32 of them in 182 at-bats this season. That translates to a forgettable .176/.205/.231 line and, more noteworthy, the accomplished base-stealer has yet to swipe a bag in 2017.
May 27 - 8:52 PM

Kelvin Herrera struck out two in a scoreless inning of work Saturday, earning his 11th save against the Indians.

Herrera struck out Bradley Zimmer and then had to face the top of the Indians' order, allowing a two-out double to Francisco Lindor before getting Michael Brantley to ground out to end it. A mid-May slump appears to be in Herrera's rear-view mirror, as he's now struck out five over three scoreless appearances since that vulnerable stretch. Altogether, the 27-year-old has a 3.86 ERA and 22/4 K/BB ratio over 21 innings of work.
