Dan Uggla was scratched from Monday's lineup as a precaution due to swelling in his right hand.

Uggla cut his hand during the Braves' postgame celebration last Tuesday, though it's not considered serious. Martin Prado will fill in at second base Monday while Reed Johnson plays left field.

Mike Trout will have surgery Wednesday to repair an ulnar collateral ligament tear in his left thumb and will be sidelined for 6-8 weeks.

The non-surgical route could have potentially cut Trout's rehab time roughly in half, but evidently the tear was deemed severe enough that surgery was deemed the best option. It's simply a brutal blow for fantasy owners, as Trout just isn't a guy that can be replaced. As far as the Angels go, they will move Cameron Maybin over to center field and will likely use Ben Revere most of the time in left. They've also called up Eric Young Jr. to provide depth.

Hunter Renfroe launched a grand slam Monday in the Padres' 5-2 win over the Cubs.

The four-run shot off Kyle Hendricks in the bottom of the fourth inning gave San Diego the lead for good. Renfroe has been highly productive in May and now has 10 home runs and 24 RBI in 52 total games this year. The 25-year-old outfielder should continue to provide useful fantasy value in the power departments.

Andrew McCutchen hit a walkoff solo homer to lift the Pirates over the Diamondbacks 4-3 on Monday.

Pirates closer Tony Watson let up a game-tying two-run homer to Chris Iannetta in the top of the ninth inning, but McCutchen ended the afternoon affair as the first batter in the bottom of the ninth. It was the only hit of the game for McCutchen, though he did draw a walk and score a run in the bottom of the seventh. The veteran outfielder is slashing just .215/.290/.398 in 50 games, though he has tallied eight home runs and 24 RBI.

Gregory Polanco is expected to miss a couple games after being diagnosed with a sprained right ankle.

It certainly could have been much worse after Polanco needed to be carted off the field Monday when he tweaked his ankle as he ran into the side wall in the outfield. However, it appears that he's managed to avoid a serious injury.

Tanner Roark worked seven shutout innings Monday in the Nationals' win over the Giants.

Roark scattered six hits and one walk over his seven scoreless frames, striking out six. He's been dominant in two straight outings since getting hammered for seven earned runs May 18 against the Pirates. Roark will bring a 5-2 record and an improving 3.86 ERA into his next start on the road versus the Athletics.
May 29 - 7:45 PM

Ryan Zimmerman went 3-for-4 with a home run Monday in the Nationals' defeat of the Giants.

Zimmerman slugged a solo shot off Giants starter Matt Moore in the top of the second inning and singled and scored in the top of the sixth. He also singled immediately after Bryce Harper and Hunter Strickland's on-field brawl in the top of the eighth. Zimmerman has an incredible .374/.413/.707 batting line with 14 home runs and 40 RBI in 48 games this season for the first-place Nationals.

Edwin Encarnacion launched his 10th home run of the season Monday as the Indians beat the Athletics 5-3.

It was a solo shot off A's starter Daniel Mengden in Cleveland's four-run fourth inning. Carlos Santana also went deep in that frame. Encarnacion has enjoyed a productive May and is now slashing .226/.346/.418 through 49 total games this season for his new team. We'd bet those rate stats will continue to rise.

X-rays on Byron Buxton's right finger came back negative.

Buxton suffered a cut on his finger when his hand hit Eddie Rosario's spikes during a dive in the outfield, but he avoided a serious injury. The young outfielder thinks he could be ready to play as soon as Tuesday.

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.
May 29 - 6:53 PM

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.
May 29 - 6:50 PM

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.
