Cubs re-signed 3B Ian Stewart to a one-year, $2 million contract.

Stewart could earn an additional $500,000 with incentives. He's guaranteed a little less than what he figured to make in arbitration, but he could earn a little more if he reaches his incentives. It's a pretty fair deal all around and a risk the Cubs can afford to take. Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune hears that the deal is not guaranteed and Stewart could be released if he doesn't make the team in the spring.

Matt Wisler permitted just one hit over eight shutout innings in Tuesday's 3-0 victory over the Mets.

Wisler didn't exactly dominate Tuesday. He struck out only four and walked two and was the beneficiary of a handful of line drives right at fielders. However, it's obviously hard to argue with the results. The young right-hander picked up his first victory of the season while lowering his ERA to 3.24 and WHIP to 0.90. Wisler will try to keep it going next week versus the Phillies.

Jake Arrieta yielded just two hits across seven shutout innings in Tuesday's 7-1 victory over the Pirates.

Arrieta walked the first two batters of the game, which made you think he might have a rare off night. Instead, he allowed only two singles and no runs the rest of the way. Arrieta struck out five on the night and now sports a 37/12 K/BB ratio across 43 innings to go along with a 0.84 ERA, 0.74 WHIP and 6-0 record. Absurd. Arrieta goes up against the Nationals this weekend.

Alex Rodriguez will undergo an MRI on his right hamstring.

A-Rod pulled up lame while running to first base in the fifth inning Tuesday and manager Joe Girardi acknowledged after the game that the situation is "definitely worrisome." It sounds like a disabled list stint could be coming for the veteran slugger. Dustin Ackley replaced him in the Yankees' lineup on Tuesday night.

Billy Hamilton was removed from Tuesday's game against the Giants with a jammed left thumb.

Hamilton first jammed the thumb April 15 at Busch Stadium while making a diving catch and it has bothered him off and on since. He was 0-for-2 before exiting on Tuesday night and is batting just .215/.271/.354 in 23 games this season. Tyler Holt took over in center field.

Francisco Lindor went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer and three runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Tigers.

Lindor's long three-run homer in the bottom of the fifth inning off of Justin Verlander effectively ended the game, extending the Indians' lead to 7-2 at the time. It was the young shortstop's second longball of the season and pushed his RBI total up to 12. With a .315/.380/.438 batting line in his first 23 games, Lindor has certainly avoided a sophomore slump to this point.

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) allowed three runs over six innings Tuesday with Triple-A Pawtucket.

But he didn't walk anybody and those three runs came on only five hits. It was a much better outing than his rehab debut with Pawtucket last Thursday, when Rodriguez gave up three runs on six hits and three walks in just 3 2/3 innings. The young left-hander should be a start or two away from returning to Boston.

Aroldis Chapman is expected to make two appearances this week in the minors before joining the Yankees next Monday.

Chapman has been looking sharp in extended spring training games at the Yankees' complex in Tampa, Florida and he should roll through a pair of innings on the farm. Yankees manager Joe Girardi reiterated Tuesday that Chapman will immediately take over as the team's closer when he is activated May 9 from his domestic violence suspension. Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller will work as setup men in what promises to be a shutdown bullpen trio.

Ben Revere (oblique) is on track to rejoin the Nationals this weekend in Chicago.

Revere is playing in his fifth rehab game Tuesday at Triple-A Syracuse, though he's yet to go a full nine innings. The speedy center fielder has been sidelined since the first game of the 2016 regular season because of a right oblique strain. Michael Taylor and Jayson Werth figure to lose playing time upon Revere's return to Washington's outfield mix.

Robbie Erlin needs Tommy John surgery.

Erlin was placed on the disabled list on April 21 with discomfort in his left elbow and further testing revealed a partial UCL tear. He's going to miss the rest of the 2016 season and the early part of 2017. Erlin, a 25-year-old former top prospect, holds a 4.54 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 109/35 K/BB ratio in 148 2/3 career major league frames.

Mariners placed RHP Tony Zych on the 15-day disabled list with rotator cuff tendinitis.

Zych was rocking a 3.00 ERA and 19 strikeouts through 12 innings this season out of the Mariners' bullpen, and he boasts a 2.67 ERA in 30 1/3 career major league frames. It's not clear when the 25-year-old right-hander might be able to pitch again. Steve Johnson got the callup from Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday to provide relief depth.
May 3 - 6:17 PM

Joe Kelly (shoulder) is expected to make a rehab start Friday with Triple-A Pawtucket.

Kelly will make at least two starts in the minors before the Red Sox consider bringing him back. The right-hander owns a brutal 9.35 ERA and 2.77 WHIP in three outings this season for Boston and landed on the disabled list April 19 with a shoulder impingement. He's not worth stashing in a standard fantasy league.
