Rockies activated LHP Christian Friedrich from the 60-day disabled list.

Friedrich is still recovering from a stress fracture of his L5 vertebrae in his lower back, but is expected to be ready for the start of spring training. The 25-year-old left-hander posted a dismal 6.17 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in his first season with the Rockies.

Yovani Gallardo fired six innings of two-run ball in Sunday's victory over the Yankees, allowing just four hits and a walk along the way.

Gallardo punched out six on the night. All of the damage against him came in the first inning on a two-out, two-run single by Brian McCann. He was able to settle in nicely afterwards though, keeping his team in the game and allowing the Rangers offense to come from behind. Now 4-6 on the season, he'll head into Friday's start against the Red Sox with a 4.13 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 40/16 K/BB ratio through 56 2/3 innings on the year.

Nolan Arenado went 4-for-5 and finished a double shy of the cycle as the Rockies thrashed the Giants 11-2 in Colorado on Sunday.

His three-run blast off Jean Machi capped off an eight-run uprising in the fourth inning that gave the Rockies an early 9-0 lead. Arenado scored three runs and plated four in the impressive performance. He's now hitting .275/.321/.516 with eight homers and 25 RBI on the season.

Chad Bettis was outstanding in Sunday's victory over the Giants, allowing just two runs on six hits over his 8 1/3 innings.

Bettis racked up seven strikeouts on the afternoon while walking two. The right-hander carried a shutout into the ninth inning before finally allowing a pair of runs to score. He'll carry a 4.19 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 15/6 K/BB ratio into Saturday's start against the Phillies in Philadelphia.

Justin Upton had a monster game against the Dodgers on Sunday, hitting a first-inning grand slam, doubling and driving in six.

Upton had six RBI by the end of the second inning, clubbing a grand slam off Carlos Frias in the first inning, then smacking a two-run double in the second. These would be his only hits of the game, as he finished 2-for-4. Good on the Dodgers for closing that barn door after the horse was halfway to Mexico. The early MVP race in the National League is something to behold at the moment and Upton's certainly in the running with 12 homers, 35 RBI, 32 runs scored, nine steals and a .284/.343/.562 slash.

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and three RBI in Sunday's win over the Cubs.

Goldy almost single-handedly won the Diamondbacks the game, as he drove in three of the four runs. The other was driven in by starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson. Goldschmidt hit an RBI single in the first inning, then decided to up the excitement factor with a two-run homer in the third. Just another day at the office for the slugger, who is hitting a phenomenal .333/.438/.635 with 12 homers, 38 RBI and 34 runs scored.

Steven Souza has been diagnosed with a sprained left wrist, and was spotted wearing a brace after Sunday's game.

He sustained the injury in a collision with A's catcher Stephen Vogt on Sunday. While initial X-rays came back negative, he will undergo an MRI on Monday to make sure there's no further damage. At this stage, it doesn't sound like a trip to the disabled list is imminent, but check for updates before setting weekly lineups on Monday.

Brian Dozier hit a pair of home runs and drove in four in Sunday's 8-1 win over the White Sox.

Dozier's been on a tear this month and the hot bat wasn't cooling on Sunday. He hit a solo shot off Jose Quintana in the first, then smashed a three-run bomb off Scott Carroll in the seventh to finish 2-for-5 with four RBI and two runs scored. With the recent stretch of offensive goodness, Dozier's hitting .253/.335/.506 with nine homers, 24 RBI and three steals.
May 24 - 5:35 PM

Kyle Gibson pitched a strong game in Sunday's 8-1 win over the White Sox, striking out eight and managing eight innings of four-hit, one-run ball.

With the win, Gibson improved to 4-3 on the season. The only run against him came when he served up a solo homer to Jose Abreu. Other than that, Gibson was simply superb. The White Sox had no answer for him. Neither has most of the rest of baseball this season, as Gibson boasts a 2.72 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 27/17 over 56 1/3 innings. Perhaps the best takeaway from Sunday's start was that he did not walk a batter. We still question his long-term viability as a reliable fantasy starter, but if he's able to keep the walks down, the ERA is less likely to jump the tracks. A home start against the Blue Jays is up next for Gibson.
May 24 - 5:22 PM

Mike Napoli hit a two-run homer and a two-run double to finish 2-for-3 with four RBI in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Angels.

Napoli had been as cold as the dark side of the moon for most of the season, but over the last two games he has been as hot as a moon that has flown out of orbit and just hit the sun. After a solo homer on Friday and two homers on Saturday, Napoli followed up with another huge game. He smashed a two-run homer off of Hector Santiago in the second inning, then hit a deep double to score two in the eighth to finish with four RBI and two runs scored. After slugging under .300 a week ago, he's dragged his slash-line up to .203/.304/.420 and has now hit eight home runs and driven in 21. Get him in your lineups immediately if you were waiting.
May 24 - 5:06 PM

Michael Wacha allowed just one (unearned) run over seven innings Sunday in the Cardinals' 6-1 win over the Royals.

Wacha scattered five singles and two walks over his seven dominant frames while striking out four. It was exactly the kinda outing the Cardinals needed after losing three straight and the first two games of the weekend series against their cross-state rival. Wacha now has a brilliant 1.87 ERA in 57 2/3 innings this season, and St. Louis is 9-0 in his nine starts. The 23-year-old ace will try to keep it all working next time out against the Dodgers.
May 24 - 4:54 PM

Wade Miley hurled a strong start in a 6-1 win over the Angels on Sunday, tossing eight innings of one-run ball and allowing just four hits.

Miley cruised through this one. Outside of an RBI double by Mike Trout in the sixth inning, the Angels were unable to touch him. He allowed just four hits while striking out two and walking one. After a rough go of it early, Miley's now won three straight starts and has dropped his ERA to 4.47 to pair with a 1.31 WHIP and a 31/19 K/BB ratio in 50 1/3 innings pitched. He'll gun for a fourth straight win in a showdown with the Rangers next Friday.
