Willson Contreras socked his first home run of the Tuesday in Tuesday's win over the Indians.

It really should only count as half of a home run since it came off of Josh Tomlin, but Contreras will take it as he gets off the schneid. The Cubs belted four dingers in this one, with Ian Happ also hitting one and Kyle Schwarber belting a pair in addition to Contreras.

Kyle Schwarber punished a pair of solo home runs Tuesday in Cleveland.

Schwarber took Josh Tomlin deep in the second inning and again in the fourth. The young left-handed swinger is up to six longballs on the season after the two-homer night, and his batting line is up to .302/.413/.635. It's quite a different start than the one he got off to last year.

Christian Villanueva (hamstring) likely won't return to the Padres' starting lineup before Friday.

Villanueva was scratched from the Padres' lineup Monday with a sore hamstring and he's not playing Tuesday either. "We just want to make sure he gets this behind him," manager Andy Green said Tuesday evening. "Then it probably leads to the question: If we don't play him tonight, is it even smart to play him tomorrow, because we get the off-day (Thursday) as well? Probably better judgement would prevail, and we'll see him in the lineup again on Friday."

Ian Kennedy was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Brewers after getting hit in the leg by a line drive in the top of the third inning.

Kennedy held the Brewers scoreless in the first and second innings, but he was charged with four earned runs in an ugly third. Burch Smith took over in the top of the fourth. There should be a status update soon on Kennedy, who failed to strike out a batter Tuesday for the first time in 273 career major league appearances.
Apr 24 - 9:15 PM

Jose Ramirez reached base four times in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs.

The Indians' offense didn't get much done in this one, but Ramirez and Bradley Zimmer both tallied three-hit games. After an awful first couple weeks while the Indians were battling freezing temperatures, Ramirez is now batting .413 with six home runs over his last 12 contests.
Apr 24 - 9:15 PM

Tuesday night's game between the Pirates and Tigers has been postponed due to inclement weather in Pittsburgh.

Chad Kuhl was scheduled to face off against Jordan Zimmermann at PNC Park. They'll instead match up in the first half of a traditional doubleheader on Wednesday, with first pitch scheduled for 4:05 p.m. ET.
Apr 24 - 8:46 PM

Martin Prado (knee) finished 1-for-3 with an RBI and a walk in his third rehab game Tuesday with High-A Jupiter.

Prado also played seven innings at third base. He should soon advance to Double-A Jacksonville or Triple-A New Orleans and could join the Marlins' active roster sometime in early May. The veteran third baseman underwent major surgery on his right knee last July and then suffered a setback at spring training, but he's had a couple positive weeks in a row.
Apr 24 - 8:28 PM

J.T. Riddle (shoulder) went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in his rehab debut Tuesday with High-A Jupiter.

Riddle played five innings at shortstop. The 26-year-old underwent major surgery on his left shoulder last August and will likely need close to 40 minor league rehab at-bats. Look for him to join the Marlins around mid-May.
