The Nationals made a one-year, $13.3 million qualifying offer to impending free agent Adam LaRoche.

LaRoche has seven days to accept or decline. The Nationals will receive a draft pick if he declines and signs with another team, but the two sides continue to discuss a new contract. The 32-year-old is aiming for a multi-year deal after tallying 33 home runs and 100 RBI this season to go along with a Gold Glove Award.

Ketel Marte (thumb) is expected to be activated from the disabled list next Monday.

That's the first day he's eligible. Marte, who has been out since May 21 with a left thumb sprain, will begin a minor league rehab assignment on Tuesday. He's expected to play a total of five games through Saturday before rejoining the Mariners. The 22-year-old was batting .276/.307/.378 with five steals in 40 games prior to the injury.

Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) could begin a minor league rehab assignment this weekend.

D'Arnaud, who has been out since late April with a strained right rotator cuff, resumed baseball activities last week in Florida. The big test will be game action. Assuming he can avoid setbacks, the Mets could send Kevin Plawecki to Triple-A upon his return and keep Rene Rivera as the backup.

Carlos Gomez will bat seventh in his return from the disabled list Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

This is where he batted most of the time before hitting the disabled list with a bruised left rib cage earlier this month. The 30-year-old returns to a disappointing .182/.238/.248 batting line.

Domingo Santana (shoulder) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Double-A Biloxi.

Santana has been out since May 18 with a lingering injury to his right shoulder. The 23-year-old should be back with the Brewers within a week or so, but Jonathan Villar has run away with the leadoff spot during his absence.

Twins recalled OF Byron Buxton from Triple-A Rochester.

Buxton will return to the majors after Danny Santana hit the disabled list with a hamstring injury. The 22-year-old hasn't hit so far in the majors, but he batted .336/.403/.603 with six homers, four steals, and a 26/11 K/BB ratio over 129 plate appearances after his demotion to Triple-A last month. He's no sure thing to succeed this time around, but it's not like the other internal options are all that exciting. The last-place Twins should just let him play.

Red Sox activated LHP Eduardo Rodriguez from the 15-day disabled list.

Rodriguez, who injured his knee during spring training, will finally make his season debut Tuesday against the Orioles. The 23-year-old tossed seven innings of one-run ball with a 7/1 K/BB ratio in his final minor league rehab start last week. He showed some promise as a rookie last season, but most fantasy owners can afford to see how he fares for his first start or two before making him active.
May 31 - 10:35 AM

Daniel Murphy went 3-for-4 with his eighth homer and 15th double to lead the Nationals past the Phillies 4-3 on Monday.

Murphy has been on fire since day one this year, and he shows no signs of slowing down. He's already more than half way to his career high of 14 homers, and his 1.047 OPS is 278 points higher than his career mark of .769 with the Mets.
May 30 - 10:23 PM

Bryce Harper is day-to-day with a right knee contusion.

Harper was forced to exit Monday's game against the Phillies after he was hit in the right knee by a pitch from Jeremy Hellickson. It doesn't sound like a major concern, but the Nationals will see how he feels on Tuesday.
May 30 - 10:20 PM

Jeff Locke pitched a three-hitter for his first career complete game as the Pirates drubbed the Marlins 10-0 on Monday.

Locke hadn't completed any of his previous 100 major league starts. The left-hander was looking like the obvious choice to be bounced from the Pirates rotation when the team promoted Jameson Taillon or Tyler Glasnow, but this certainly complicates things a bit. He lowered his ERA from 5.08 to 4.33 tonight. That's better than what Jon Niese (4.42), Francisco Liriano (4.63) or Juan Nicasio (4.79 (or 4.21 if Andrew McCutchen hadn't whined about an error) have done.
May 30 - 10:06 PM

Ian Desmond doubled and ripped a two-run homer in Monday's victory over the Indians.

Desmond's two-run shot two batters into the game proved to be a hint at what was to come for the Rangers' offense, as they pounded out nine runs over the first four innings. The shortstop-turned-left-fielder-turned-center-fielder has been a beast in May, sporting a .345/.371/.527 batting line with three home runs, 18 RBI and six stolen bases.
May 30 - 9:07 PM

Marlon Byrd went 4-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Rangers.

The Indians had a couple longballs in this one, but unfortunately for them they were pretty meaningless. After the Rangers jumped out to a 9-0 lead after the top of the fourth, Mike Napoli smashed a long solo shot in the sixth and Byrd added a blast to left in the seventh. Byrd will turn 39 in August but has remained pretty productive, hitting .270/.328/.459 with five homers and 19 RBI.
