Red Sox signed RHP Oscar Villarreal to a minor league contract.

The deal includes a spring training invite. Villarreal, 31, hasn't pitched in the big leagues since 2008 and spent last season with the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate. He's likely to serve as organizational depth.

Jorge Bonifacio went deep again Tuesday, swatting a two-run shot in the Royals' win over the Yankees.

Bonifacio just missed a homer when he flied out to the warning track in the second inning. After striking out in the fifth, he took Adam Warren deep in the seventh to the opposite field to give the Royals the lead. Bonifacio, who will turn 24 in a couple weeks, has now homered in four of his last five games.

Anthony Rendon had two homers, a double and five RBI as the Nationals crushed the Mariners 10-1 on Tuesday.

That's not quite three homers and 10 RBI, like he had last month against the Mets, but it does make him the third player this year with multiple two-homer, five-RBI games, joining Jay Bruce and teammate Bryce Harper. Rendon has seven homers and 29 RBI in 42 games.

Ervin Santana became the first pitcher to reach two shutouts this season on Tuesday, holding the Orioles off the scoreboard in a 2-0 victory.

Dylan Bundy was good in this one, but Santana was better. Singles from Welington Castillo and Jonathan Schoop and a couple walks were all the Orioles were able to muster off the right-hander. Santana struck out six batters on the night, needing just 105 pitches to complete the gem. The righty's other shutout came back on April 15 against the White Sox. Santana's 1.80 ERA is the best mark in baseball, and his 0.83 WHIP is second only to Chris Sale's 0.79 mark. He'll face the Astros next.

Jay Bruce left Tuesday's game against the Padres due to back tightness.

Bruce was 1-for-3 with a run scored and two strikeouts before getting replaced in the sixth inning by Juan Lagares. It's probably going to be a day-to-day thing.

Yonder Alonso (knee) is back in the Athletics' starting lineup on Tuesday night.

Alonso will start at first base and bat fifth against Marlins right-hander Jose Urena after missing close to a week with a bruised left knee. Hopefully the 30-year-old slugger can pick up where he left off. He boasts a .991 OPS (173 OPS+) with 12 home runs and 29 RBI through 38 games this season with the A's.

Avisail Garcia is out of the White Sox starting lineup Tuesday due to the flu.

It could be a multi-day absence for Garcia, who's off to a tremendous start in 2017. Willy Garcia is starting in right field and batting seventh Tuesday night against Diamondbacks left-hander Patrick Corbin.
May 23 - 6:22 PM

Yasiel Puig (back) is in the Dodgers' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Cardinals.

Puig missed some action this weekend with mild back tightness. He will start in right field and bat eighth Tuesday versus Cardinals right-hander Lance Lynn.
May 23 - 6:13 PM

Dallas Keuchel (neck) plans to return to the Astros' rotation Saturday against the Orioles.

That's the first day he's eligible for activation from the 10-day disabled list. "I feel a lot better," Keuchel told reporters Tuesday. "The plan is still the same ... good for Saturday." The ace left-hander was 7-0 with a sensational 1.84 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, and 54/14 K/BB ratio in 63 2/3 innings before going down with a pinched nerve in his neck.
May 23 - 6:12 PM

Kolten Wong (elbow) remains out of the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Dodgers.

Wong remains day-to-day with mild discomfort in his left elbow. He was probably going to sit anyway with the Dodgers throwing left-hander Clayton Kershaw. Jedd Gyorko is starting at second base and batting cleanup. Jhonny Peralta is at third base and batting sixth.

An MRI taken Tuesday on Trevor Cahill's right shoulder showed no major structural damage.

Cahill was sent for the exam after experiencing lingering soreness in his right shoulder while attempting to play catch from 75 feet this weekend. He'll be shut down from throwing for the next 10-14 days and will then have to begin a rehab program from scratch. It's doubtful we see him again on a major league mound before mid-to-late June.
May 23 - 5:29 PM

Padres manager Andy Green has confirmed that pitching prospect Dinelson Lamet will be called up to start Thursday against the Mets.

Lamet has registered a 3.23 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 50/20 K/BB ratio in 39 innings (eight starts) this season with Triple-A El Paso. The poor command makes him a risky play in standard mixed fantasy leagues, but the 24-year-old right-hander carries intriguing long-term upside. He could be up for multiple turns if Thursday's debut goes relatively smoothly.
