Andrew Knapp hit his second homer and walked Tuesday against the Rockies.

The Phillies are searching all over for offense and Knapp has been very good, hitting .261 with an .848 OPS in 46 at-bats. Still, starting catcher Cameron Rupp hasn't been a problem -- he has a .776 OPS -- and there's not really any way for the Phillies to play both of them. Knapp figures to remain a backup.

Chris Carter belted a solo homer and drew a walk in Tuesday's loss to the Royals.

Carter's blast over the left field wall in the fifth inning put the Yankees out to a 2-0 lead, but they were outscored 6-0 the rest of the way. The big first baseman has now gone deep in each of the first two games of the series.

Jeff Locke (biceps) is scheduled to make a fourth minor league rehab start Wednesday with Double-A Jacksonville.

If it goes well, it should be his last. Locke has registered a promising 2.51 ERA with 17 strikeouts and zero walks through 14 1/3 innings (three starts) in the minor leagues. The left-hander has been on the disabled list all season because of biceps tendinitis.

Tyson Ross (shoulder) threw five scoreless innings Tuesday in a rehab start with Triple-A Round Rock.

Ross needed just 73 pitches to make it through those five shutout innings, yielding only two hits. The right-hander could be cleared to join the Rangers' starting rotation after just two more minor league appearances, assuming they go as smoothly as his start on Tuesday. He last pitched in a major league game on Opening Day in 2016.

Anthony Rendon had two homers, a double and five RBI as the Nationals crushed the Mariners 10-1 on Tuesday.

That's not quite three homers and 10 RBI, like he had last month against the Mets, but it does make him the third player this year with multiple two-homer, five-RBI games, joining Jay Bruce and teammate Bryce Harper. Rendon has seven homers and 29 RBI in 42 games.
May 23 - 9:56 PM

Joe Ross pitched eight innings of one-run ball Tuesday to beat the Mariners in his return to the majors.

Ross was really strong early on, reaching the mid-90s with his fastball. His velocity dipped steadily as the night went along, but the effectively never waned. We'd still like to see him maintain that fastball longer into outings before recommending him especially vehemently, but he needs to be owned in mixed leagues regardless.

Ervin Santana became the first pitcher to reach two shutouts this season on Tuesday, holding the Orioles off the scoreboard in a 2-0 victory.

Dylan Bundy was good in this one, but Santana was better. Singles from Welington Castillo and Jonathan Schoop and a couple walks were all the Orioles were able to muster off the right-hander. Santana struck out six batters on the night, needing just 105 pitches to complete the gem. The righty's other shutout came back on April 15 against the White Sox. Santana's 1.80 ERA is the best mark in baseball, and his 0.83 WHIP is second only to Chris Sale's 0.79 mark. He'll face the Astros next.
May 23 - 9:53 PM

Royals signed INF Chris Nelson to a minor league contract.

Nelson hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2014 and he was batting just .261/.307/.359 in 101 plate appearances this season for the independent Sugar Land Skeeters. The 31-year-old infielder is doubtful to climb his way to Kansas City.
