Zack Cozart left Sunday's game against the Pirates with an apparent right knee injury.

Cozart reached on an error to start the top of the eighth inning but then was met by a trainer at second base. He appeared to point to his right knee and then walked off the field. It's the same knee that Cozart had ACL surgery on last season, so it's reasonable to have some concern. The Reds should have more on Cozart's status later Sunday.

Marcus Stroman was superb in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Rays, yielding one run on three hits over eight innings.

Well, that's one way to celebrate a birthday. Stroman turned 25 on Sunday and with the win, the birthday boy improved to 4-0 on the young season. He struck out nine against two walks, throwing 103 pitches (65 strikes) over the course of his eight innings of work. Only an Evan Longoria solo home run in the sixth inning prevented him from the shutout. With the superlative outing under his belt, Stroman will take a 3.77 ERA and 0.95 WHIP into his next scheduled start. That one will come against the Dodgers.
May 1 - 3:54 PM

Jake Odorizzi was sharp in earning a no-decision in Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Blue Jays, hurling seven innings of one-run ball.

Don't be fooled by the 5-1 final score. This was a juicy pitching duel by starters Odorizzi and Marcus Stroman until the Rays bullpen coughed up four late runs. For his part, Odorizzi struck out six, walked two and allowed just a pair of hits. The lonely run to score on his watch came when Josh Donaldson clocked a solo homer off the 26-year-old right-hander in the fourth inning. Odorizzi is off to a smooth start with a 3.12 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 30/7 K/BB ratio across 34 2/3 innings. A road date with the Angels awaits him in his next outing.
May 1 - 3:52 PM

Angel Pagan left Sunday's game against the Mets with an apparent injury.

Pagan was thrown out while trying to stretch his single into a double in the top of the seventh inning and was replaced by Gregor Blanco in left field to start the bottom of the frame. The Giants should have an update on his status shortly.
May 1 - 3:43 PM

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday that Andrew McCutchen's left knee "just felt a little cranky" on Saturday.

McCutchen is back in the lineup Sunday, so it doesn't appear this is something to worry about at the moment. However, keep in mind that he dealt with a knee issue early last season, as well, so it's certainly an item that needs to be filed away. McCutchen entered play Sunday batting just .226/.339/.441 on the season.
May 1 - 3:39 PM

J.J. Hardy departed Sunday's game against the White Sox after fouling a ball off his left foot.

It's unclear whether Hardy will undergo an X-ray or whether his exit was purely precautionary. The Orioles should have an update on their shortstop's status later Sunday.
May 1 - 3:30 PM

Josh Hamilton has been pulled off his rehab assignment after feeling soreness in his surgically-repaired left knee during his first rehab game Saturday.

Sadly, this comes as no surprise. Hamilton has been given a cortisone shot and the Rangers aren't ruling out him resuming his rehab assignment later this week, but that obviously isn't a given to happen. Hamilton had been expected back in mid-May, but that surely won't happen now.
May 1 - 3:16 PM

Scott Van Slyke (back) is not expected to return before June.

Van Slyke has been out for three weeks with a lower back injury and still hasn't been cleared to resume baseball activities. The 29-year-old has been a weapon for the Dodgers against left-handed pitching the last few seasons, so his absence for what looks like will be at least a couple months is notable.
