Marlins optioned OF Bryan Petersen to Triple-A New Orleans.

Petersen didn't exactly play poorly this spring, batting .250 (11-for-44) with a homer and four stolen bases, but sometimes having options left works against you at this time of the year. Austin Kearns and Chris Coghlan now both have a pretty good shot to be with the team on Opening Day. The Marlins also reassigned right-hander J.D. Martin and infielder Nick Green to minor league camp.

Dylan Bundy was scratched from Sunday's start against the Rays due to a strained left hamstring.

So, it doesn't appear the Orioles had plans to shut Bundy down, but they might have the decision made for them. It's unclear if the injury is something the righty had been dealing with or if he might have tweaked the hammy while warming up Sunday. Chris Tillman is starting in Bundy's place.

Daniel Murphy hit a solo home run in the 10th inning to help the Nationals edge the Mets 4-3 on Saturday.

Murphy cranked a Jacob Rhame curveball to straight-away center, his 23rd homer of the season. He finished 2-for-5 in the game with a double and another run scored. The 32-year-old is fourth in the National League with a .316 batting average, and he's got 90 RBI and 90 runs scored to go with a .917 OPS to boot. If not for a couple teammates having even better offensive years, we might expect to see his name on a couple MVP ballots in the coming months.

Giancarlo Stanton finished 3-for-6 with a double, a solo home run, two runs scored and four RBI in Saturday's victory at Arizona.

Stanton is up to 57 homers for the season. The slugger has eight more games to reach the magical 60-homer mark, and three of those outings come at Coors Field in Denver starting on Monday.

Whit Merrifield drove in three runs with a bases-loaded double, and the Royals downed the White Sox 8-2 on Saturday.

The Royals had a 3-1 lead in the seventh inning when Merrifield stepped to the plate with the sacks jacked. He emptied them with his 31st double of the year. The 28-year-old has followed up on a surprising 2016 debut with a true breakout season, batting .290/.329/.465 with 18 homers, 76 RBI, 76 runs scored and 33 steals in 137 games.

Jose Abreu went 1-for-4 with two RBI in a loss to the Royals on Saturday.

Abreu had an RBI single in the first inning and added an RBI groundout in the seventh, driving in both of the Sox's runs. The first baseman now has four consecutive 100-RBI seasons, and he's just the third player in MLB history -- along with Joe DiMaggio and Albert Pujols -- with four seasons of 100 RBI and 25 homers to begin their career. Abreu is hitting .304/.356/.548 through 150 games.

X-rays turned up negative on Hyun-Jin Ryu's left forearm.

Ryu was removed from his start Saturday night against the Giants after getting struck by a Joe Panik comebacker in the top of the third inning. He only suffered a contusion, but that contusion could keep him from making another start before the end of the regular season.

Rio Ruiz homered and scored two runs as the Braves came back to best the Phillies 4-2 on Saturday.

Ruiz did well to wait on a Kevin Siegrist breaking ball in the sixth inning, staying back and yanking it over the right field wall for his fourth homer of the season. It's been a steep learning curve for the 23-year-old at the major league level this year, as Ruiz is batting .206/.281/.328 through 131 at-bats with the Braves this year. As with many of his Braves teammates, Ruiz's best years are still ahead of him.

Jake Odorizzi allowed just one unearned run over six innings Saturday in the Rays' 9-6 victory over the Orioles.

That one unearned run came in the bottom of the first inning, after a throwing error by Rays first baseman Lucas Duda. Odorizzi was terrific, yielding just three total hits while striking out nine of the 23 batters he faced. He's in a nice groove entering the final week of the 2017 regular season.

Carlos Santana is getting X-rays on his left shoulder.

The shoulder got bent back awkwardly on a play at first base in the bottom of the fifth inning. He remained in the game, but there is obviously at least a little concern. "We won't play him Sunday, but he's going to get an X-ray that's precautionary," Indians manager Terry Francona told the media on Saturday night. "But you could see the way he was swinging (after the collision) that he was letting it go pretty good."

Efren Navarro clubbed a pair of solo dingers during a loss to the Twins on Saturday.

He didn't even start the game, coming in to replace the injured Miguel Cabrera in the second inning. He popped an Ervin Santana offering over the wall in the sixth inning and then victimized reliever Gabriel Moya in the ninth. The dingers were the first of the season for Navarro, in fact he's hit only one other major league home run, and that came way back in 2014. The 31-year-old first broke into the majors in 2011 with the Angels.

Miguel Cabrera will undergo an MRI on his back.

Cabrera has been bothered by lower back discomfort for the last couple of months and he had to make an early exit from Saturday's game against the Twins after hitting a single in the bottom of the first inning. It sounds like an early shutdown could be in order for the 34-year-old slugger, even if the MRI shows no major damage.
