Mets recalled RHP Hansel Robles from Triple-A Las Vegas.
He'll take the spot of Jerry Blevins in the Mets bullpen who sustained a broken arm on Sunday. The 24-year-old will work in middle or long relief and shouldn't provide any fantasy value.
Adam Jones finished 4-for-5 with a home run and five RBI in the Orioles' 8-3 rout of the Red Sox on Sunday.
The scorching start continues for Jones, who is batting .457/.490/.848 with five home runs and 16 RBI through 46 at-bats. He opened the game's scoring Sunday with a two-run shot off Red Sox starter Rick Porcello and then later added two singles and a three-run double. The 29-year-old center fielder is quickly justifying his first-round ADP.
Mets recalled C Kevin Plawecki from Triple-A Las Vegas.
Manager Terry Collins has already confirmed that the 24-year-old backstop will serve as the Mets primary catcher for as long as Travis d'Arnaud remains sidelined. He has a solid offensive skill set and should be able to carve out mixed league value in deeper two-catcher formats over the next few weeks.
Steven Souza had a big day at the plate, going 3-for-5 with a two-run home run and an RBI double, but the Rays fell to the Yankees 5-3 on Sunday.
Souza gave the Rays a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the first inning with a two-run home run off of Michael Pineda. He helped bring the Rays back within two runs with a fifth-inning double off of Pineda, but it ultimately wasn't enough to avoid a series sweep. Souza is off to a good start, batting .289 with three home runs, 10 RBI, and four stolen bases.
Rick Porcello was hammered for eight earned runs in five innings Sunday as the Red Sox fell to the Orioles.
Porcello gave up two runs in the first inning, one run in the second, another two in the fifth, and then three in the sixth. He surrendered 12 hits in all and walked three Baltimore batters, watching his WHIP balloon from 0.93 to 1.47. The 26-year-old right-hander had been off to a decent start with his new team, but he'll carry an ugly 1-2 record and 6.63 ERA into his next outing on the road against these same Orioles.
Omar Infante was diagnosed with a strained left groin and is considered day-to-day.
Infante sustained the injury during Sunday's game against the Athletics. The oft-injured infielder will probably be rested for a couple of days before rejoining the Royals lineup.
Alex Rodriguez went 1-for-3 with a double, two walks, and two runs scored to help the Yankees take down the Rays on Sunday.
Rodriguez's hot start to the 2015 season continues. Sunday's performance leaves him with a terrific .316/.447/.711 slash line. He has four home runs, 11 RBI, and 10 runs scored to go along with it. Rodriguez remains two home runs shy of tying Willie Mays with 660 career home runs, fourth-most in baseball history.
Giants prospect Jarrett Parker has been a prodigious power hitter this year, blasting four homers in 31 at-bats for Triple-A Sacramento.
He also has ten RBI. Parker only went deep 15 times last season so it's hard to tell if this is a fluke or if the 26-year-old has turned a corner. He's someone to keep an eye out for if injuries force the Giants to call up an outfielder.
