Indians signed OF Melky Cabrera to a minor league contract.

The news was first reported by Hector Gomez of Z101 Digital and confirmed by MLB.com's Jon Morosi. Cabrera, 33, batted .285/.324/.423 with 17 home runs and 85 RBI last season for the White Sox and Royals. He will need some time in the minors to knock the rust off but should be added to the Indians' roster sometime next month and see at-bats in right field.

Gerrit Cole took his first loss after giving up two runs over seven innings Monday against the Angels.

Cole retired the first 13 batters he faced before the Angels pushed across single runs in the fifth and sixth innings. Unfortunately, there was no run support for him in this one. Even though he's gone seven innings in all five of his starts and never allowed more than two runs, he has just two wins.

Mike Trout went 1-for-3 with a walk and two steals against the Astros on Monday.

Trout not only leads the league with nine homers, but he's 5-for-5 stealing bases in the early going. Maybe he intends to aim for his first 30-30 season since his Rookie of the Year campaign in 2012. He has stolen 30 bases twice since, but they were in the only two seasons in which he didn't hit 30 homers (27 homers in 2013, 29 homers in 2016).

Miguel Andujar went 2-for-5 with a solo homer Monday in the Yankees' defeat of the Twins.

Andujar belted a first-pitch dinger off Twins starter Jake Odorizzi in the bottom of the second inning and later added a double. He's now gone seven straight games with an extra-base hit. The only other Yankees in history to do that before age 24: Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio.
Apr 23 - 11:05 PM

Gleyber Torres went 1-for-4 with a single and a run scored in the Yankees' win over the Twins on Monday.

The eighth-inning poke to center field was the first MLB hit for Torres, who got promoted from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday and finished 0-for-4 with a strikeout in his debut. The 21-year-old top infield prospect is the youngest Yankees player to record a hit since Melky Cabrera (20 years, 338 days) on July 15, 2005 at Boston.
Apr 23 - 11:02 PM

Didi Gregorius launched a grand slam in the Yankees' rout of the Twins on Monday.

Gregorius was the only Yankees hitter who had not reached base when he stepped to the plate in the bottom of the eighth inning and he quickly righted that wrong with a four-run bomb to right-center field. The 28-year-old shortstop has an outstanding .324/.429/.746 batting line with seven home runs in 21 games this season, and he leads all major league hitters with 24 RBI.
Apr 23 - 10:59 PM

Masahiro Tanaka tossed 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball Monday in a win over the Twins.

New York's offense put up 14 runs in this one and Tanaka didn't let the Twins up for air, yielding just three hits and two walks while striking out five. He's now 3-2 on the year with a 5.28 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 28/6 K/BB ratio in five starts covering 29 innings. Up next is a road start against the Angels.
Apr 23 - 10:55 PM

Jake Odorizzi surrendered five earned runs over 4 2/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Yankees.

Odorizzi struggled right out of the gate in this one, yielding three runs in the bottom of the first inning and one run in the bottom of the second. He issued three walks and gave up five hits, including two home runs. The 28-year-old right-hander will carry a 1-2 record, 4.50 ERA, and 1.42 WHIP into his next start at home against the Reds -- a team that doesn't have quite the firepower of the Bronx Bombers.
