Brad Boxberger (abdomen) threw another successful 30-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday.

Boxberger worked in some changeups and sliders in anticipation of the next step of his rehab, which will be facing live hitters. He'll head to the Rays' spring training complex Friday to begin simulated work. The right-hander is probably two weeks away -- maybe a little less -- from joining the back end of the Tampa Bay bullpen. Rays fill-in closer Alex Colome is sitting on a 3.00 ERA and five saves.
May 4 - 9:08 AM

Mike Moustakas (thumb) hit a game-tying, pinch-hit, two-run single on Tuesday versus the Nationals.

Moustakas then scored the game-winning run on a Lorenzo Cain walkoff RBI single a few batters later. The third baseman was held out of Kansas City's starting lineup because of a nagging thumb contusion. He may be given another "bench day" on Wednesday.
May 4 - 8:59 AM

Mike Napoli (neck) had a double, a walk, and two RBI in his return to action Tuesday.

The veteran first baseman had been sidelined for a few days in a row because of some mild stiffness in his neck. It was clearly no big deal. Napoli, 34, is batting .210/.273/.420 with 13 RBI in 21 games this season.
May 4 - 8:54 AM

Matt Kemp went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Rockies.

The poor, poor Rockies would probably prefer Kemp just be traded over to the American League. He has made a career of demolishing the boys from the Rocky Mountains. To wit, Tuesday's fourth-inning home run off Eddie Butler was the 40th of his career against Colorado pitching. He has also hit 40 doubles against the team and holds a monumental .314/.372/.617 triple-slash across 564 career at-bats in match-ups with the Rockies. For the 2016 campaign as a whole, the veteran outfielder is hitting .301/.318/.612 with eight homers and 22 RBI.
May 4 - 1:24 AM

Lorenzo Cain hit a walk-off RBI single to complete the Royals' 7-6, comeback win over the Nationals on Tuesday.

It will go down in the scorebook as a single, but Cain tattooed a Jonathan Papelbon pitch to center that was just out of the reach of a sprawling Michael Taylor, plating Mike Moustakas and ending what was a three-run inning for the defending champs. Cain finished 2-for-5 in the game. After seeing his average dip to .200 a little over a week ago, Cain is 9-for-26 (.346) during a six-game hitting streak. It has his overall line up to .240/.305/.302.
May 4 - 1:20 AM

Jonathan Papelbon went off the rails Tuesday, allowing three runs in two-thirds of an inning in a loss to the Royals.

Called on to protect a two-run lead, Papelbon instead allowed two quick singles to start the inning. One out later, Mike Moustakas tied the game with a two-run single, and two batters later -- after a line out and, you guessed it, a single -- Lorenzo Cain ended Papelbon's nightmare with a walk-off single as well. The blown save was Pap's second of the season, leaving his ERA at 4.50 with a 1.42 WHIP through 13 appearances.
May 4 - 1:16 AM

Alcides Escobar went 4-for-5 with an RBI, two runs scored and a steal in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

Escobar swatted four singles on the evening, including a big one with two outs in the ninth inning to extend the game for Lorenzo Cain, who promptly ended it with an RBI single of his own. The stolen base was Escobar's seventh of the season, third-most in the American League. Royals manager Ned Yost is a subscriber to the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" theory, leaving Escobar atop a lineup that won the 2015 World Series despite Escobar's .259/.288/.321 line through 26 games.
May 4 - 1:13 AM

Charlie Blackmon went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Padres.

Blackmon led off the contest with a solo home run against Padres starter Andrew Cashner in the top of the first inning. The dinger was his first of the 2016 campaign. A toe injury sidelined him for two weeks in April, but he has legitimate fantasy upside now that he is back in action. Last season, the 29-year-old outfielder slashed .287/.347/.450 with 17 homers, 58 RBI and 43 steals. A 20-20 season is not out of the question if he can maintain his health over the coming months.
