Trayce Thompson (back) is available off the bench again Monday.

Thompson left Saturday's game with lower back soreness and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts would prefer to give him another day of rest. Consider him day-to-day.
May 30 - 4:13 PM

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Monday that they aren't ruling out Rich Hill (groin) from making his next start.

Melvin said Hill was still "a little bit sore" after leaving Sunday's start against the Tigers with a mild groin strain, but they'll see how he feels over the next couple of days before making an official decision. The A's have an off-day on Thursday and next Monday, so they have the flexibility to push him back if necessary.

Brandon Belt slugged a solo homer in the Giants' loss to the Braves on Monday in Atlanta.

Belt went yard off Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz in the top of the second inning. He then singled in the top of the ninth and would eventually cross home plate on a Kelly Johnson fielding error, but the late rally wasn't enough. Belt has five homers and 25 RBI in 51 games this season for the National League West-leading Giants.

Mike Foltynewicz tossed six innings of one-run ball Monday in the Braves' 5-3 defeat of the Giants.

Folty gave up a solo homer to Brandon Belt in the top of the second inning, but his line was otherwise clean in the Memorial Day game at Turner Field. He yielded only three total hits and struck out four, moving to 2-2 on the year with a 3.51 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 28/8 K/BB ratio in 33 1/3 innings. The young righty is a pretty intriguing deep-league option. He gets the Dodgers on the road next.

X-rays came back negative on Matt Duffy's left wrist.

Duffy exited Monday's game against the Braves after taking a pitch off his left wrist, but fortunately it doesn't appear to be serious. He can be considered day-to-day.
May 30 - 4:04 PM

Mallex Smith tallied three RBI on a bases-loaded triple Monday as the Braves beat the Giants.

Smith cleared the bases in the bottom of the second inning with a drive to the wall in left-center. Giants left fielder Jarrett Parker was playing in and had to hustle all the way back. Smith has an underwhelming .242 batting average and .298 on-base percentage in 42 games this season for Atlanta, but he's collected 18 RBI, six stolen bases, and 17 runs scored. We'd expect him to keep racking up the counting stats.
May 30 - 4:02 PM

Jeff Samardzija yielded five runs -- four earned -- over five innings Monday in a loss to the Braves.

It was the shortest start of the season for Samardzija, who had been averaging 7 1/3 innings per outing over his last five turns in the Giants' rotation. Atlanta scored three runs in the second on a bases-loaded triple by Mallex Smith and two more in the third on a Brandon Belt fielding error and a sacrifice fly. Samardzija will look to get back on track in his next start on the road against the Cardinals.
May 30 - 3:53 PM

Matt Harvey fired seven scoreless innings in a 1-0 victory over the White Sox on Monday.

Coming off two disaster starts against the Nationals, Harvey bounced back with his best (and longest) outing of the season. That’s baseball for you. He also had his highest fastball velocity of the season. Harvey limited the White Sox to just two hits and one walk while striking out six batters. He appeared to be in some trouble after the first two batters reached in the seventh and were moved over to second and third after a sacrifice bunt, but he got Todd Frazier to foul out to first base before retiring J.B. Shuck on a ground out. It was an encouraging step in the right direction for Harvey. He’ll try to keep it going this weekend against the Marlins in Miami.
