Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said after Monday's game that he would worry about the closer situation when Joe Nathan (elbow) returns from the disabled list.

He has previously stated that Nathan would get his job back when he returned, but the skipper appears to be backpedaling a bit here. Perhaps he might finally be willing to face reality and admit that Joakim Soria, who is 5-for-5 in save chances with a 1.35 ERA, is a better choice for the ninth inning. As for Nathan, he could throw a simulated game soon, which might be the last step before he's activated.

Padres manager Bud Black said that Ian Kennedy (hamstring) "looked good" during an 81-pitch appearance in an extended spring training game Monday.

"He looked good, [threw] all his pitches," Black said. "He had a few strikeouts. They nicked him for a couple runs, but overall he's throwing the ball good, no issues with the hamstring." Black wouldn't officially confirm that Kennedy was slated to rejoin the rotation on Saturday against the Dodgers when first eligible, but all signs point to it happening. Odrisamer Despaigne will head back to the bullpen.

Anthony DeSclafani held the Brewers scoreless over eight innings on Monday as the Reds won 6-1.

Though it was against the lowly Brewers, DeSclafani gave up only two hits and a walk while striking out five. DeSclafani was a popular sleeper pick coming into the season and he's already paying dividends. The right-hander owns a 0.86 ERA, a 0.62 WHIP, and a 16/4 K/BB ratio over 21 innings. DeSclafani will attempt to remain undefeated in his next start at home versus the Cubs.

Jonathan Lucroy will be placed on the disabled list after suffering a fractured toe on his left foot during Monday's game versus the Reds.

The injury occurred when Lucroy was struck by a foul tip. It's absolutely brutal news for the Brewers, who are 2-11, have Carlos Gomez (hamstring) and now Lucroy on the DL and might have Scooter Gennett (hand) join them. It's not clear at this point how long Lucroy might be sidelined. Martin Maldonado is now set to see the bulk of the action behind the plate for the Brewers, and Juan Centeno will be promoted to take Lucroy's roster spot.

Wily Peralta yielded six runs over seven innings in a loss to the Reds on Monday.

Peralta made a couple of mistake pitches at inopportune times. One resulted in a three-run home run to Zack Cozart in the sixth inning, and the other was a two-run home run by Joey Votto in the seventh. Overall, Peralta gave up eight hits, walked three, and struck out five. The right-hander will bring a 5.68 ERA into his next start, at home against the Cardinals.

Zack Cozart went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run on Monday in a win over the Brewers.

Cozart lifted a three-run home run to left field off of Wily Peralta in the sixth inning, bumping the Reds' lead up to 4-0. Cozart, who finished with a .568 OPS last season, has been hot at the plate to begin the season, batting .326/.367/.522 with two home runs and five RBI.

Joey Votto went 2-for-4 with a walk and a two-run home run as the Reds topped the Brewers on Monday.

Votto's two-run home run in the seventh inning off of Wily Peralta padded the Reds' lead to 6-0 at the time. That marks five round-trippers on the season for the first baseman, who missed more than half of the 2014 season with a quad strain. Votto also owns a .375/.492/.771 triple-slash line with 12 RBI, making him by far the Reds' most productive hitter to start the season.
Apr 20 - 9:50 PM

Ryan Braun provided the Brewers their only run with a ninth-inning solo home run in Monday's loss to the Reds.

The Brewers entered the bottom of the ninth trailing 6-0, so Braun's solo homer -- his first of the season -- off of Burke Badenhop barely made a dent. Braun has been off to a slow start this season, currently slashing .238/.273/.310 in 44 trips to the dish.
