James McCann went 0-for-3 in Monday's loss and is hitting just .156 in 77 at-bats this season.

It's an empty .156, too; he has one extra-base hit and a 24/3 K/BB ratio. Jarrod Saltalamacchia has cooled way down since his big April, so McCann hasn't had to worry about playing time yet. That could change if he keeps hitting like the spawn of Jeff Mathis and Drew Butera.

Matt Andriese tossed seven innings of two run (one earned) ball against the Royals.

Andriese’s surprising run rolls on. The 26-year-old righty gave up five hits and two walks while striking out three batters. His ERA is now down to a stellar 2.36 for the season after five starts and 34 1/3 innings. Be careful though because his lowly 5.24 K/9 is not the mark of an ace. Expect some rocky outings to boost his ERA upward.

Eric Hosmer hit a three-run homer to lead the Royals to a 6-2 win over the Rays on Monday.

Hosmer took Erasmo Ramirez deep in the 8th inning to put the game out of reach. Hosmer also singled and is now hitting a robust .323/.370/.547 with nine home runs on the season. He is on pace to bust his "every other year" cycle of good and bad seasons.

Paulo Orlando drew the start in right field and delivered two hits on Monday night against the Rays.

The Royals seem to view Orlando as a backup-level player despite his .759 career OPS. Orlando now has a .382 batting average and may force the Royals to see how he can do as an everyday player even after Alex Gordon returns from the DL.

Desmond Jennings went 0-for-4 on Monday against the Royals, dropping his batting average to .168 on the year.

The Rays were forced to turn to Jennings as their starting center fielder since Kevin Kiermaier’s broken hand will sideline him for 8-10 weeks. So far the returns have been brutal. Jennings’ .168/.237/.269 slash line has cemented him as one of the league’s worst players this year. The 29-year-old has a .713 career OPS, so there is a good chance he will bounce back at least a little bit, but his fantasy appeal is limited right now.

Erasmo Ramirez was blasted for four earned runs in only one-third of an inning on Monday night against the Royals.

Ramirez entered in the bottom of the eighth and gave up singles to Alcides Escobar, Whit Merrifield, and Lorenzo Cain before Eric Hosmer launched a 414-foot bomb to center field. The former starter’s glowing 2.37 ERA took a beating and now sits at 3.29 for the season.

Yan Gomes wore glasses in Monday's game against the Rangers.

Gomes, who was previously wearing contacts, has been thinking about making the change since the spring. It didn't help him at the plate Monday, as he went 0-for-4 with a strikeout and now owns an ugly .175/.211/.357 batting line through 38 games.
May 30 - 10:48 PM

Daniel Murphy went 3-for-4 with his eighth homer and 15th double to lead the Nationals past the Phillies 4-3 on Monday.

Murphy has been on fire since day one this year, and he shows no signs of slowing down. He's already more than half way to his career high of 14 homers, and his 1.047 OPS is 278 points higher than his career mark of .769 with the Mets.
