Steven Souza has been diagnosed with a sprained left wrist.

He sustained the injury in a collision with A's catcher Stephen Vogt on Sunday. There have been rumblings that he may go for a precautionary MRI on Monday to make sure there's no further damage. At this stage, it doesn't sound like a trip to the disabled list is imminent, but check for updates before setting weekly lineups on Monday.

Jeremy Hellickson allowed three runs in 6 2/3 innings during Sunday's win over the Cubs.

Hellickson surrendered just four hits while striking out four and walking one. All three runs allowed came on the long ball, as Miguel Montero touched him up for a solo homer in the second inning and Chris Coghlan burned him for a two-run shot in the fifth. With the win, Hellickson improved to 2-3, with a 5.33 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and a 36/17 K/BB ratio in 50 2/3 innings. He'll need more starts like Sunday's if he wants those numbers to drop. Up next, a road start against the Brewers.
May 24 - 6:48 PM

Jake Peavy (back) is scheduled to make a minor league rehab start with Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday.

The veteran right-hander came through his first start with High-A San Jose without any issues. Depending on how well that start goes, he could be cleared to rejoin the Giants rotation shortly after.
May 24 - 6:46 PM

Jason Hammel allowed four runs in seven innings during Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Hammel struck out nine and walked one in the contest. Three of the four runs against came in the third inning, when he allowed a sacrifice fly and a two-run homer by Paul Goldschmidt. Goldschmidt also knocked him for an RBI single in the first. This season, Hammel has posted a 2.98 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 58/7 K/BB across 60 1/3 innings. He'll face off with the Royals in his next start.

Yankees pitching prospect Jordan Montgomery tossed a career-high seven innings Saturday in a win for Low-A Charleston.

An amazing 57 of his 69 pitches went for strikes. Montgomery has now allowed one run or fewer in each of his last four starts, trimming his ERA from 3.80 to 2.27 during that span. The 22-year-old has put on muscle since college, adding velocity to his low 90s fastball. The South Carolina alum ranks second in the South Atlantic League with 50 strikeouts.

Blue Jays pitching prospect Matt Boyd racked up eight strikeouts Saturday in a win for Double-A New Hampshire.

Boyd is undefeated over his last seven starts, going 4-0 in that span with a 1.29 ERA. The 24-year-old left-hander leads the Eastern League in both ERA (1.05) and strikeouts (56). He also owns the league's third-lowest WHIP (0.84). With nothing left to prove in Double-A, it's only a matter of time before Boyd gets called up to Buffalo.

Brian Dozier hit a pair of home runs and drove in four in Sunday's 8-1 win over the White Sox.

Dozier's been on a tear this month and the hot bat wasn't cooling on Sunday. He hit a solo shot off Jose Quintana in the first, then smashed a three-run bomb off Scott Carroll in the seventh to finish 2-for-5 with four RBI and two runs scored. With the recent stretch of offensive goodness, Dozier's hitting .253/.335/.506 with nine homers, 24 RBI and three steals.
May 24 - 5:35 PM

Jose Abreu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Twins.

Abreu hit his solo tater off of Kyle Gibson in the fourth inning. It would be the only run that the White Sox managed to score in the game. The dinger was Abreu's seventh and pushed his RBI total to 23. While he's not hitting at the monstrous level that he was in 2014, he's still posting a rock-solid .282/.349/.474 slash-line.
