Padres optioned INF/OF Carlos Asuaje to Triple-A El Paso.

May 25 - 5:51 PM

Padres recalled RHP Dinelson Lamet from Triple-A El Paso.

May 25 - 5:50 PM

Ben Zobrist went 3-for-4 and hit his sixth homer as the Cubs topped the Giants 5-1 on Thursday.

Zobrist is 13-for-28 with three homers during his current eight-game hitting streak. He's raised his OPS from .686 to .822 over the stretch.
May 25 - 5:43 PM

Evan Gattis is not in the Astros' lineup Thursday against the Tigers.

Gattis could use a rest after starting four of the last five games behind the plate. Juan Centeno will catch for Mike Fiers in Thursday's series finale. Gattis will go back to splitting catching duties with Brian McCann (concussion) when he returns from the disabled list this weekend.
May 25 - 5:43 PM

Eddie Butler pitched five innings and allowed one run in a victory over the Giants on Thursday.

Oddly, manager Joe Maddon opted to let Butler hit in the bottom of the fifth and then pulled him to start the sixth after just 69 pitches. It makes plenty of sense to tread carefully with the 26-year-old Butler, who battled shoulder problems and was constantly mishandled by the Rockies. He'll likely be inconsistent but occasionally excellent for as long as the Cubs keep him in the rotation.
May 25 - 5:41 PM

Mike Montgomery pitched four scoreless innings for a save against the Giants on Thursday.

Montgomery came into a 2-1 game and stayed in as the Cubs added three insurances runs. It was his first career save. He's now thrown 31 2/3 innings this year, putting him on an incredibly high pace for a reliever. The Cubs could back off him or some or they still could transition him into the rotation at some point.
May 25 - 5:37 PM

Jeff Samardzija fell to 1-6 after giving up three runs in seven innings Thursday against the Cubs.

All of the runs scored on solo homers. Samardzija struck out eight and walked one, but that's par for the course for him this year; he has a 79/11 K/BB ratio in 69 innings. He just needs some help from his offense. His double today was one of only five Giants hits against Eddie Butler and Mike Montgomery in the loss.
May 25 - 5:35 PM

Jason Heyward hit his second homer in three days Thursday against the Giants.

Heyward has hit in all five games since coming off the DL, though he has exactly one hit in each of those contests. He's gone 16 straight without having a multihit game. Still, between the defense and a .763 OPS, he's been a valuable player for the Cubs this year.
