According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Braves have reached a deal with free agent outfielder B.J. Upton.

The terms of the agreement are not yet known, and Upton still has to pass a physical. But this baby is all but official. Upton also drew interest this offseason from the Phillies, Rangers, Nationals and Giants before settling on Atlanta, where he will start in center field. The 28-year-old batted .246/.298/.454 with 28 homers and 31 stolen bases in 146 games this past summer for the Rays.

Adam Duvall had his first career two-homer day in Monday's win over the Rockies.

There were seven home runs hit on the day, which is no surprise in a matchup of two mediocre starters at Coors Field. Both of Duvall's longballs went to the opposite field, as he took Chad Bettis deep with a two-run shot in the fourth and then added a solo blast off of Jake McGee in the ninth. Duvall has now homered 11 times this month and 13 times on the season, emerging as a legitimate power bat for the Reds.

Joey Votto smashed career home run No. 200 in Monday's slugfest victory over the Rockies.

Votto took Jason Motte deep in the seventh inning with a shot to right field. He also nearly had a grand slam in previous at-bat, as a drive in the fourth inning landed on the warning track and then bounced over the fence for a two-RBI, ground-rule double. Votto's production has been way down this season, as he's sporting a .213/.332/.391 batting line. However, he's hit safely in five out of his last six contests and has a couple dingers over that stretch.

Carlos Gonzalez doubled and smacked a two-run homer in Monday's loss to the Reds.

Both hits were to center field and they were both lasers, with the longball coming in the ninth inning off of Reds closer Tony Cingrani. Gonzalez also walked twice on the day. He has been inconsistent this season, sandwiching a couple homer binges around the longest homerless drought of his career. The good news is CarGo is in the midst of one of the good streaks, as he's gone deep in three straight and four out of his last five.
May 30 - 7:48 PM

Nate Karns struck out six while allowing two runs over 6 2/3 innings in Monday's 9-3 win over the Padres.

Karns has pitched well overall this season but has had trouble going deep into games, as he's failed to go six frames in half of his starts. That wasn't the case here, though, as he also encouragingly only walked one batter. The 28-year-old sports finishes his first two months with a 3.43 ERA, a strikeout per inning and a 5-1 record. He'll try to keep it going this weekend in Texas.

Twins placed INF/OF Danny Santana on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Santana injured his left hamstring during Monday's game and will require an extended absence. The Twins will call up Byron Buxton to take his place on the active roster.
May 30 - 7:03 PM

Jason Hammel left Monday's start due to a right hamstring cramp.

Hammel was forced to exit the game after two innings. The Cubs say that he's currently being evaluated, so no other information is available at this time. More should be known after the game or perhaps on Tuesday.
May 30 - 6:21 PM

Angels activated RHP Huston Street from the 15-day disabled list.

Street has been sidelined since April 23 with an oblique strain. Joe Smith filled in at closer during his absence, but he'll move back into a set-up role.
May 30 - 5:32 PM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Monday that Dustin Ackley (shoulder) could require surgery.

Ackley, who was placed on the disabled list Monday, was diagnosed with a torn labrum in his right shoulder. Either way, he's facing a lengthy absence. There should be more clarity on his status in the coming days.
May 30 - 5:26 PM

Carlos Martinez struck out eight batters over eight scoreless innings Monday in the Cardinals' 6-0 victory over the Brewers.

Martinez was 0-5 with a 6.84 ERA in May entering the Memorial Day outing at Miller Park in Milwaukee, but he finished the month with an exclamation point. The hard-throwing righty yielded just five hits -- all singles -- and only issued one walk. He now stands 5-5 with a 3.69 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 50 strikeouts in 61 innings (10 starts) this season. Martinez gets the Giants at home next.
May 30 - 5:03 PM

Yunel Escobar (wrist) is not in Monday's lineup against the Tigers.

Escobar bruised his right wrist on Sunday and will get a day of rest. Gregorio Petit will start at third base Monday while Kole Calhoun will bat leadoff.
May 30 - 4:55 PM

Steven Wright allowed two runs in a complete-game 9-2 victory over the Orioles on Monday.

It was his third complete game of the season, which ties him with Chris Sale, Clayton Kershaw, and Johnny Cueto for the MLB lead. Not a bad group. He threw a career-high 122 pitches to go the distance. The knuckleballer walked five and struck out seven. Wright gave up just four hits, including three of them in a two-run fifth inning. However, he bounced back from there by retiring 13 out of the final 15 batters he faced. Wright has now thrown seven innings or more in four out of his last five starts. He’ll bring a surprising 2.45 ERA into a start against the Blue Jays at home this weekend.
