Edwin Diaz worked a perfect ninth inning for his ninth save Monday in the Mariners' 6-5 defeat of the Rockies.

Diaz struck out Gerardo Parra and Trevor Story before inducing a game-ending groundout from Tony Wolters. The young right-hander spent nine days in the dog house earlier this month while he worked through some mechanical issues, but he's back in Seattle's ninth-inning role now and carries the upside of a top-tier fantasy closer moving forward.

Charlie Blackmon slugged his 13th home run of the year Monday in the Rockies' loss to the Mariners.

Blackmon tagged Mariners starter Sam Gaviglio for a solo shot in the bottom of the third inning, finishing the day 1-for-4. The 30-year-old center fielder has been one of the best players in baseball through the first two months of the season, with his .329 batting average, .989 OPS, 13 home runs, 46 RBI, four stolen bases, and 38 runs scored in 52 games.

Bryce Harper was ejected Monday after charging the mound and throwing punches at the Giants' Hunter Strickland in a benches-clearing brawl.

Strickland famously served up two home runs to Harper in the 2014 NLDS, and this was the first time he had faced him since then. His first pitch drilled Harper in the hip, which was surely a coincidence. Harper barked at the pitcher and pointed at him with his bat before then charging the mound, throwing his helmet and then wielding some wild punches. The star outfielder is no doubt facing a suspension, and Strickland, who also threw punches and was ejected, is, as well.

Rangers activated 3B Adrian Beltre from the 10-day disabled list.

He'll make his season debut Monday after missing almost a full two months with a strained right calf. Beltre originally suffered the injury back in mid-February and then aggravated it in March.

Mike Trout will not play Monday, but the Angels are still awaiting MRI results on his left thumb.

They seemed to tip their hand with Eric Young spotted in the clubhouse, but nothing is official in regards to the extent of Trout's injury yet. Obviously, more news on Trout will be available soon.

Melky Cabrera's bat stayed red-hot Monday, as he ripped a three-run homer and had an RBI single in a win over the Red Sox.

David Price got through his first two innings of 2017 in scoreless fashion, but he issued a pair of one-out walks in the third and Cabrera made him pay with a blast over the left field wall. Cabrera then plated the winning run in the seventh inning with an infield single. The veteran outfielder got off to a rotten start this season but is now batting .327 with four dingers and 14 RBI over his last 13 games.

Carlos Beltran slugged a three-run homer in an 11-run eighth inning as the Astros came back to beat the Twins 16-8 on Monday.

Ouch. The Astros entered the eighth inning down 8-2 before going off on the Twins' bullpen. Josh Reddick delivered the go-ahead hit in the frame, but Beltran provided the exclamation point with a three-run blast off Matt Belisle. It was the 427th home run of his career, which ties him with Mike Piazza for 49th all-time. The 40-year-old Beltran went 4-for-5 with a walk on the day and is batting .253/.301/.424 with six home runs and 18 RBI through 45 games this season.

Dustin Pedroia is headed back to Boston to undergo an MRI on his injured left wrist.

Pedroia sprained his wrist on a collision at first base Monday and it was still swollen and tender after the game. X-rays were negative, but it's possible he could have some structural damage. The Red Sox are holding off on making a roster move for now until they get MRI results back, but a stint on the disabled list looks like a distinct possibility.

Gregory Polanco was carted off the field with an apparent right ankle injury in Monday's game versus the Diamondbacks.

Polanco banged up against the side wall in right field. Obviously, the fact that he required a cart to exit the field is not a promising sign. The Pirates should have more on the outfielder's status after the game, but expect a disabled list stint.
May 29 - 5:41 PM

Cody Bellinger homered for the second game in a row in Monday's win over the Cardinals.

Bellinger was given the green light on a 3-0 offering from Mike Leake in the fourth inning and he blasted it well into the right field seats for a solo shot. The rookie has predictably tailed off a bit in the average department of late, but he's gone deep four times over his last 10 contests.

Francisco Liriano (shoulder) will rejoin the Blue Jays' rotation this weekend.

The exact day hasn't been determined yet, but Liriano felt good during a rehab start Sunday at Triple-A Buffalo. The left-hander has been on the shelf for nearly three weeks with inflammation in his pitching shoulder. He was really struggling before going down, so fantasy owners would be wise to take a wait-and-see approach.
May 29 - 4:44 PM

J.A. Happ (elbow) will start on Tuesday against the Reds.

Happ allowed three runs on seven hits over just three innings in his lone rehab start, but he feels good and made it through a bullpen session Sunday with no issues. His pitch count figures to be relatively limited Tuesday, so fantasy owners might want to bench him for what will be his first start in the majors in six weeks.
