Latest Headlines

Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star reports that the Royals have had discussions about trading top prospect Wil Myers for either James Shields or Jon Lester.

The Royals have already added Ervin Santana via trade this offseason from the Angels and recently signed Jeremy Guthrie to a three-year contract, but they want a true front-line starter and are apparently willing to deal one of the most promising young hitters in the game in order to acquire one. Myers, 21, batted .314/.387/.600 with 37 home runs and 109 RBI in 134 games this past season between the Double-A and Triple-A levels.

Billy Hamilton (thumb) will sit out Wednesday.

Hamilton was pulled from Tuesday night's game against the Giants after reaggravating his left thumb, which he originally jammed April 15 at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. Consider the speedster day-to-day. Tyler Holt is starting in center field and batting second Wednesday versus San Francisco right-hander Jake Peavy.

Zack Cozart (knee) is back in the Reds' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Giants.

Cozart tweaked his surgically-repaired right knee in Sunday's series finale against the Pirates and was held out of the first two games of this three-game set with the Giants. It sounds like that was all mostly precautionary. The 30-year-old shortstop has an impressive .347/.350/.533 batting line in 19 games this season for Cincinnati.

Jason Heyward (wrist) remains absent from the Cubs' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Pirates.

Heyward has been bothered by right wrist discomfort for a couple of weeks and recently had a bad flareup. He has now missed three straight games. Ben Zobrist is in right field, Tommy La Stella is at second base, Javier Baez is at third base, and Kris Bryant is in left field Wednesday afternoon against Bucs right-hander Juan Nicasio.

Lorenzo Cain hit a walk-off RBI single to complete the Royals' 7-6, comeback win over the Nationals on Tuesday.

It will go down in the scorebook as a single, but Cain tattooed a Jonathan Papelbon pitch to center that was just out of the reach of a sprawling Michael Taylor, plating Mike Moustakas and ending what was a three-run inning for the defending champs. Cain finished 2-for-5 in the game. After seeing his average dip to .200 a little over a week ago, Cain is 9-for-26 (.346) during a six-game hitting streak. It has his overall line up to .240/.305/.302.

Kyle Seager went 2-for-4 with a three run home run in Tuesday's 8-2 win over the A's.

The Mariners already held a 5-1 lead when Seager strolled to the plate to face reliever Marc Rzepczynski with two runners on and nobody out in the eighth inning. He essentially put it out of reach with one swing of the bat, clocking a three-run home run to send the Oakland faithful home in a dour mood. Through his first 94 at-bats, Seager is slashing just .181/.274/.436 with five doubles, six homers and 17 RBI. The sky might be brightening, though, as Seager has notched three doubles, two homers and seven RBI over his last four games.

Hisashi Iwakuma was fantastic in Tuesday's 8-2 win over the A's, firing seven innings of four-hit, one-run ball.

Lovely work by Iwakuma, who struck out three and walked two. The strikeout total is modest enough, but the A's simply couldn't square the veteran right-hander up at any point. He did not allow an extra-base hit on the evening. The only run to score against him came in the sixth, when Jed Lowrie burned him for an RBI single. Otherwise, Iwakuma cruised. Through six starts (38 innings), he holds a 4.03 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 28/11 K/BB ratio. In his four major league seasons prior to 2016, Iwakuma never finished with an ERA higher than 3.54 (2015). He will hit the dusty trail for a road outing against the Astros next time out.

Sonny Gray struggled in Tuesday's 8-2 loss to the Mariners, yielding seven runs on 11 hits over seven-plus innings.

Gray was coming off a two-inning debacle against the Tigers (the shortest start of his career). While he managed to pitch into the eighth in Tuesday's tango with the Mariners, the end result was still unsettling. Four of the seven runs on Gray's line came after he trotted out to start the eighth inning. He would not record an out in the frame. It is understandable if fantasy owners are unnerved by his slow start (4.84 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, 32/16 K/BB ratio over 35 1/3 innings), but patience is a virtue. Gray will try to turn the statistical ship around at Fenway when he does battle with the Red Sox in his next scheduled start.
May 4 - 12:51 AM

George Springer hit a two-run home run and scored twice as the Astros topped the Twins 6-4 on Tuesday.

Springer's two-run shot in the fourth inning was his second homer in as many games, giving him six in all. He's got 14 RBI and 16 runs scored to go with those six dingers. There are some highs and lows that come with the 26-year-old's offensive game, but he's hitting .274/.347/.500 through 27 games, a line the Astros will certainly take over a full season.
May 4 - 12:50 AM

Chris Carter homered twice and had three RBI as the Brewers edged the Angels 5-4 on Tuesday.

Carter hit a two-run homer in the third inning and added a solo shot in the fifth. He's now got nine home runs, third-most in the National League, with 21 RBI and 17 runs scored. The power production comes as a shock to no one; the fact that he's hitting .287/.356/.713 while doing it is the real story. That won't last, but the power should, for what it's worth.
May 4 - 12:22 AM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-3 with a double, triple and three RBI as the White Sox bested the Red Sox 4-1 on Tuesday.

Abreu had an RBI triple, his first triple of the year, in the first inning to get the Sox on the board. He then capped the scoring in the eighth with a two-run double. Abreu has a seven-game hitting streak during which he has six multi-hit games. After an ugly start, his season line is up to .252/.331/.398.
May 3 - 11:52 PM

Justin Smoak was the Blue Jays' offense Tuesday versus the Rangers, tying the game in the ninth with a homer and winning it with another homer in the 10th.

Not a bad time for your first two longballs of the season. Smoak took closer Shawn Tolleson deep to the opposite field with a solo shot to lead off the bottom of the ninth and then deposited a Phil Klein offering again over the left-field wall with a runner on in the 10th. They were the only three runs of the game for the Blue Jays. Smoak is sporting a nifty .267/.421/.422 batting line on the season and will continue to hold down first base with Chris Colabello suspended.
