With the Diamondbacks down to their final out, Aaron Hill smashed a walkoff three-run homer off Rafael Betancourt to deliver a come-from-behind 5-3 victory over the Rockies on Tuesday night.

Hill finished the evening 3-for-5 with a double, a homer, a run scored and three RBI. After a one-out single from John McDonald and a two-out knock from Gerardo Parra, the stage was set for Hill's dramatic blast. Offensively, he's been arguably the best second baseman in baseball this season, hitting an outstanding .305/.363/.526 with 26 homers, 85 RBI and 14 stolen bases.

Rangers activated LHP Cole Hamels from the 10-day disabled list.

Hamels, out since early May with a right oblique strain, allowed one run in 8 2/3 innings with eight strikeouts and two walks through two minor league rehab starts. He'll make his return to the Rangers' rotation Monday against the Indians.

Indians activated OF Michael Brantley from the 10-day disabled list.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Nationals are pursuing free agent reliever Francisco Rodriguez and he's likely to sign with them.

Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports that it's expected to be a minor league deal. Rodriguez was released by the Tigers last week after posting an unsightly 7.82 ERA over 28 appearances this season. It's no secret that the Nationals need bullpen help, so they are hoping to catch some lightning in a bottle here. We're not optimistic.

Yankees activated OF Jacoby Ellsbury from the 7-day concussion disabled list.

As expected, Ellsbury will replace the injured Aaron Hicks (oblique) on the active roster. The veteran outfielder went 3-for-8 with two doubles during a brief minor league rehab assignment. He put up a .281/.349/.422 batting line over 39 games prior to suffering a concussion last month.

Diamondbacks placed OF Aaron Hicks on the 10-day disabled list with a right oblique injury.

Hicks suffered the injury during Sunday's game and is expected to miss 3-4 weeks. It's a shame, as the 27-year-old has enjoyed an excellent first base. Jacoby Ellsbury (concussion) has been activated from the disabled list to take his place on the active roster.

Paul Goldschmidt is out of Monday's lineup against the Phillies.

Goldschmidt will get a day of rest with the afternoon game. Daniel Descalso will fill in at first base.

Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports that the Rays are "believed to be the front-runners" to acquire Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria.

The Rays would presumably install Hechavarria as their regular shortstop and move Tim Beckham to second base. Frisaro notes that the Marlins are in discussions with multiple teams, but they hope to get a deal done before Tuesday. Hechavarria, who is nearing a return from an oblique injury, was batting .277/.288/.385 with one home run and six RBI over 20 games prior to landing on the DL. The 28-year-old is making $4.35 million this season and is under team control through 2018. The Marlins want to clear his salary and net one or two pitching prospects in return.

Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) tossed three no-hit innings Sunday in his first minor league rehab start with the Giants' Arizona Rookie League team.

Bumgarner, who is coming back from a sprained left AC joint in his shoulder, struck out two and walked one. According to Tommy Stokke of FanRag Sports, the southpaw sat in the 88-91 mph range with his fastball. The plan calls for him to return to San Francisco on Monday and throw another bullpen session later in the week before continuing his rehab stint. If all goes well, the Giants' ace should return by the end of July.
