Bud Norris had a decent start on Tuesday, allowing three runs in seven innings, but took the loss against the Mets.

All three runs came in the fourth inning when Daniel Murphy singled in a run and Kevin Plawecki doubled in another two. Norris allowed seven hits and a walk while striking out four. Norris badly needed Tuesday's outing, as it lowered his ERA to a still-ugly 9.75 with a 1.75 WHIP and a 16/10 K/BB ratio in 24 innings over five starts. He'll look for more positive results his next time out, which will come against the Yankees in the Bronx.

Bartolo Colon pitched effectively into the eighth inning, earning his fifth win of the season to help the Mets take down the Orioles on Tuesday.

Colon was working on a shutout until Manny Machado lifted a solo home run to left-center with one out in the eighth inning. He got one more out, then was taken out of the game. The right-hander scattered six hits in total while issuing no walks and striking out nine. The 41-year-old has been in top form through six starts, sporting a terrific 2.90 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, and a 36/1 K/BB ratio in 40 1/3 innings. Colon will go for win number six at Wrigley Field against the Cubs next.

Angel Pagan has been scratched from Tuesday's lineup with a laceration on his left middle finger.

Pagan injured the finger sliding into second base on Monday, cracking the nail of the finger after his hand was stepped on. Justin Maxwell will get the right field start, with Gregor Blanco moving to center. Pagan is considered day-to-day.
May 5 - 9:28 PM

Stephen Strasburg exited Tuesday's game against the Marlins with an apparent injury.

Strasburg labored through three innings and 64 pitches before Doug Fister pinch-hit for him. Nationals' broadcasters were speculating that it might be Strasburg's back, but that's just speculation at this point. The team should pass along concrete details shortly.

Josh Johnson (elbow) reported that he had felt tightness in his triceps after throwing a simulated game a week ago.

Johnson said that the tightness he felt after his simulated game on April 28 has abated, at least. He plans on playing catch later this week. It's a setback for the oft-injured pitcher, who will need to show that he's healthy before the Padres move forward with his rehab.
May 5 - 8:47 PM

Austin Hedges will make his first major league start in Wednesday's game against the Giants.

Hedges will catch Ian Kennedy. One of the top catching prospects in the game, he has made a reputation on his strong defense. With a career line of .256/.316/.390 in the minors, though, you shouldn't expect a ton from his bat, especially at this stage in his major league career. Derek Norris remains the primary catcher for the Padres.
May 5 - 8:39 PM

According to Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago, Jeff Samardzija plans on dropping the appeal of his suspension.

Samardzija, among many others, was suspended for his role in an April 23 bench-clearing fracas with the Royals. The White Sox have not yet announced what they would do with their rotation if Samardzija dropped the suspension.

Casey McGehee is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Padres.

McGehee is getting Tuesday and possibly Wednesday off, as he's admitted to pressing at the plate. Fans have started to boo the third baseman, who is hitting just .181/.234/.264. A few days off could help clear his head.
