Bryce Harper exited Monday's game against the Phillies after being hit in the right knee by a pitch.

May 30 - 9:06 PM

Marlon Byrd went 4-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Rangers.

The Indians had a couple longballs in this one, but unfortunately for them they were pretty meaningless. After the Rangers jumped out to a 9-0 lead after the top of the fourth, Mike Napoli smashed a long solo shot in the sixth and Byrd added a blast to left in the seventh. Byrd will turn 39 in August but has remained pretty productive, hitting .270/.328/.459 with five homers and 19 RBI.

Royals signed LHP Joe Beimel to a minor league contract.

The Royals could use the depth in Triple-A after Brian Duensing and David Huff recently left the organization. The 39-year-old Beimel was recently given a clean bill of health from Dr. James Andrews after a minor league deal with the Marlins fell through. The southpaw will have a couple of outings in Arizona before joining Omaha.

Hector Rondon nailed down his ninth save of the season with a perfect ninth inning in Monday's win over the Dodgers.

Entering to protect a two-run lead, Rondon cruised through the ninth on 13 pitches, striking out Howie Kendrick and inducing a couple groundouts. The Cubs lost starter Jason Hammel to a hamstring cramp after two innings but still managed to toss a one-hitter. Rondon hasn't pitched a ton this season because the Cubs are crushing everyone, but he's a perfect 9-for-9 in save opportunities and boasts a 1.04 ERA, 0.63 WHIP and 27/2 K/BB ratio over 17 1/3 innings.

Braves sent INF Reid Brignac outright to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Brignac passed through waivers after being designated for assignment on Friday. The 30-year-old will serve as organizational depth in Triple-A.
May 30 - 8:47 PM

Alex Wood recorded seven strikeouts but only lasted five innings Monday, allowing two runs in a loss to the Cubs.

Wood gave up only one extra-base hit on the day, but he also permitted six singles and issued three free passes. The good news is that the tight triceps which forced him to be scratched from his last start didn't appear to be an issue. Wood will be back on the hill this weekend against his former team, the Braves, at home.
May 30 - 8:46 PM

Anthony Rizzo notched an RBI double in Monday's win over the Dodgers.

The Cubs plated two runs in the fifth on a Jason Heyward infield single and Rizzo's double and that wound up being enough. Rizzo also reached on a hit by pitch. The first baseman has really been fighting it over the last few weeks but has reached base five times over the last two days.
May 30 - 8:43 PM

Yasmani Grandal went hitless in three plate appearances Monday, watching his season batting line drop to .188/.281/.357.

The Cubs managed to hold the Dodgers to just one hit on the day even after losing starter Jason Hammel to a hamstring cramp after two innings. Grandal can't wait to flip the calendar to June, as he's batted an ugly .123/.183/.292 in May after a .295/.426/.477 April.
