Jim Thome is in the Orioles' starting lineup for Game 2 of the ALDS on Monday night against the Yankees.

Nate McLouth will lead off and J.J. Hardy will bat second. Behind those two, the O's order goes Chris Davis, Adam Jones, Matt Wieters, Mark Reynolds, Thome, Manny Machado and Robert Andino. The Orioles lost Game 1 of the five-game series on Sunday night at Camden Yards.

Tyler Saladino did a bit of everything Tuesday, finishing 2-for-2 with a two-run home run, two stolen bases and two walks in a 6-4 win over the Mets.

The stolen bases were his first two of the season, a surprising fact given that his speed, not his power, is what stood out in the minors. The homer, off Mets reliever Hansel Robles in the eighth inning, was his third of the year. Saladino's playing time continues to be erratic behind Jimmy Rollins, but the 26-year-old could be garnering more at-bats while hitting .290/.320/.449.

James Paxton will be called up Wednesday.

That's the only detail available at this point. Felix Hernandez is currently scheduled to start Wednesday night against the Padres, so this could involve a health situation with him (purely speculation). Paxton, 27, is sporting a 3.97 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 50/14 K/BB ratio in 47 2/3 innings this season at the Triple-A level.

Mookie Betts had a night to remember Tuesday, slugging three home runs and driving in five runs in a victory over the Orioles.

Betts deposited Kevin Gausman's second pitch of the game into the left-field seats and he got Gausman again with a three-run shot just over the left-field wall in the second inning. After a lineout in the fourth, Betts victimized Dylan Bundy with an opposite-field shot in the seventh. Betts had a shot at a four-homer night but grounded out to second base in the ninth. The 23-year-old has actually been a tad disappointing this season from an average (.283) and on-base percentage (.325) perspective, but he's provided a ton of category juice with 12 homers, 40 RBI, 49 runs scored and eight stolen bases.

Brad Boxberger was removed from an appearance Tuesday with an apparent injury.

Boxberger just returned from core muscle surgery and appeared to be stretching his side several times in his short, rough outing Tuesday night against the Royals. It was actually his 2016 debut. The right-hander gave up a single to Eric Hosmer and a two-run homer to Kendrys Morales before leaving with a Tampa Bay trainer. Alex Colome's hold on the ninth-inning job just got much tighter.

Jake Peavy turned in a surprising gem Tuesday, holding the Braves to one hit over seven scoreless innings in a 4-0 victory.

Peavy entered the game with a 7.26 ERA over his first 10 starts of the season, so this was unexpected even in a juicy matchup. The veteran right-hander permitted a leadoff single to Tyler Flowers in the fifth inning and that was it, as he faced the minimum through seven frames. He had thrown only 77 pitches, but manager Bruce Bochy had no choice but to pinch-hit for Peavy as the offense rallied in the eighth. Peavy will have a much tougher matchup on Sunday in St. Louis.

Jurickson Profar belted his first major league home run since September of 2013 in Tuesday's victory over the Indians.

The longball was a solo shot off of Corey Kluber in the fifth inning. Profar also singled and scored a run. The infielder is sporting a .348/.348/.565 batting line five games since taking over at second base for the suspended Rougned Odor. The Rangers are reportedly considering keeping Profar on the major league roster after Odor returns, although it remains to be seen how they'd plan to get him playing time.

Dodgers recalled LHP Julio Urias from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Urias is being throwing back into the Los Angeles rotation with Alex Wood (triceps) suddenly landing on the disabled list Tuesday. The young southpaw gave up three runs on five hits and four walks in 2 2/3 innings last Friday in his major league debut against the Mets, but he has terrific stuff and it looks like his second MLB start will come this weekend against the punchless Braves. There's no official schedule yet.

Dodgers placed LHP Alex Wood on the 15-day disabled list with left posterior elbow soreness.

Wood began experiencing the discomfort after his five-inning start Monday against the Cubs. He'll be examined and likely run through some tests before the Dodgers can come up with a proper recovery timetable. Julio Urias is going to take the vacant rotation spot.

Seth Smith cranked two home runs in an epic beatdown of his former team the Padres on Tuesday.

Smith took James Shields deep for a three-run homer in the third inning, then added a solo shot off Padres reliever Luis Perdomo in the fifth. He wrapped up his day going 2-for-4 with a walk plus four RBI and three runs scored. The 33-year-old outfielder shows no signs of aging. He is slashing .269/.392/.438 with six longballs, 26 runs scored, and 22 RBI.

Yasiel Puig was scratched from the Dodgers' lineup on Tuesday because of a sore left hamstring.

Trayce Thompson will start in right field and Carl Crawford will start in left field versus Cubs ace Jake Arrieta. Puig was limited to 79 games in 2015 largely because of hamstring issues, so this will be a situation to monitor over the next couple days. He's slashing just .239/.286/.364 over his first 196 plate appearances in 2016.
May 31 - 8:15 PM

Brandon Phillips was scratched from the Reds' lineup Tuesday due to a sore left foot.

The veteran second baseman is considered day-to-day. Jordan Pacheco will fill in at Coors Field.
