Indians designate RHP Alexi Ogando for assignment.

He's being sent out to create a spot on the 40-man roster for Melky Cabrera. He's still talented enough that another club could take a chance on him on waivers.
May 20 - 6:01 PM

Tyler Austin homered twice and drove in four runs as the Yankees pummeled the Royals 10-1 on Sunday.

Austin was a big fan of Royals starter Eric Skoglund, twice victimizing him for two-run homers before the lefty was chased from the contest. Neither one was cheap, either, as he hit one way out to left in the fourth inning before going to straight away center an inning later. Austin has run hot and cold this year, but he's in the midst of a heater at present, having gone 6-for-11 with three homers and seven RBI in his last three games. The hot streak has the 26-year-old's overall line up to .261/.324/.587 with eight homers and 23 RBI through Sunday.
May 20 - 6:00 PM

Indians optioned RHP Evan Marshall to Triple-A Columbus.

He's being cleared out to make room for Melky Cabrera on the active roster. He should get another opportunity with the big league club in short order.
May 20 - 5:58 PM

Aaron Hicks went 2-for-4 with an RBI triple and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Royals.

Hicks hit a fly ball to the right field corner that came about as close to a home run as possible without leaving the yard, instead bouncing off the top of the wall and allowing Hicks the scoot to third for his second triple of the year. He's been on a tear in recent days, going 7-for-12 with a triple, homer, two RBI and five runs scored in the series against the Royals. The good weekend raised his overall line to .250/.354/.435.
May 20 - 5:56 PM

Yasiel Puig hit his fourth homer of the season in a win over the Nationals on Sunday.

After struggling to hit for power earlier in the year, Puig now has four homers in his last six games. This one was a two-run shot off of Wander Suero in the eighth inning that scored Matt Kemp and gave the Dodgers a 5-2 lead in the eighth inning. His line still sits at .215/.278/.364, but Puig is clearly seeing the ball better as of late, and those numbers should (hopefully) shoot up in the coming weeks.
May 20 - 5:51 PM

Trea Turner went 2-for-4 with a homer in a loss to the Dodgers on Sunday.

Turner's homer was the sixth of his campaign, and it was a two-run shot off of Alex Wood. It was also the only runs scored in the game, as the Washington lineup couldn't figure out Wood or the Dodger bullpen on Sunday. Turner still doesn't have the elite numbers many projected, but considering his slow start, you'll take his .267/.371/.426 line and 13 steals in 14 attempts over 46 games.
May 20 - 5:48 PM

Matt Kemp went 2-for-3 with a run scored in a win over the Nationals on Sunday.

Kemp also reached via walk, so he reached three times against Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals on Sunday. It's been an excellent reunion with the Dodgers so far for the outfielder, as seen in his .321/.361/.511 line with five homers and 20 RBI over 44 games in 2018.
May 20 - 5:45 PM

Austin Romine drew the start Sunday and finished 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored against the Royals.

Romine had an RBI single in the fourth inning and also doubled in the game before doing his best Gary Sanchez impression in the ninth, blasting a center-cut fastball out to center. It was his first homer in 15 games this year. Sanchez is the unquestioned top dog post-dish, but Romine has been a capable fill-in when called up, batting .326/.396/.488 to date.
