According to Nikkan Sports, Andruw Jones has signed with the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles of Japan's Pacific League.

The deal is reportedly worth around $3.5 million in U.S. dollars. It's a surprising decision, as Jones will automatically become one of the biggest names ever to make the jump over to Japan, but he apparently preferred the guaranteed money over a potential spring training invite with an MLB team. The 35-year-old batted just 197/.294/.408 with 14 homers and 34 RBI in 233 at-bats for the Yankees last season. The 10-time Gold Glove award winner has a 254/.337/.486 career batting line to go along with with 434 homers and 1,289 RBI.

Desmond Jennings will be limited to pinch-hitting duties on Saturday and Sunday due to groin discomfort.

Jennings is aiming to return to the Rays' starting lineup for Tuesday's series-opener against the Twins. He has a cool .825 OPS in 17 games this season.

Max Scherzer picked up his first victory of the 2014 season on Saturday, surrendering one run on three hits over seven strong innings against the Angels.

The reigning American League Cy Young winner punched out nine while walking just two in the game. The only damage against him came on a leadoff home run by J.B. Shuck, but he was able to settle in nicely and dominate the rest of the afternoon. He’ll carry a 2.33 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 34/7 K/BB ratio into Thursday’s home start against the White Sox.

Carlos Beltran (shoulder, wrist) is back in the Yankees' starting lineup on Saturday against the Rays.

Beltran sat out of Friday's game after flipping over a short outfield fence while trying to make a diving catch on Thursday. He has some soreness in his right shoulder and wrist, but an MRI was taken and came up clean.

Lance Lynn yielded one run over 5 2/3 innings in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Nationals.

Lynn left with the bases loaded and two out in the bottom of the sixth inning. Fortunately for him, Kevin Siegrest was able to get Danny Espinosa to fly out to center field to end the threat. Lynn gave up five hits and three walks while fanning five batters. Oh, and he also had an RBI double in a three-run second inning against Jordan Zimmermann. He's now 4-0 with a 3.42 ERA and 27/7 K/BB ratio through 23 2/3 innings. The Mets are on tap for next week.

Bryce Harper was pulled from Saturday's loss to the Cardinals for not running out a groundball.

Nationals manager Matt Williams called it a "lack of hustle." Harper has been bothered for over a week by quad discomfort, so you can understand why he might be taking it easy on routine groundouts. This is a truly odd situation, but one that should ultimately blow over. "I respect what he did," Harper told the media.

Jenrry Mejia (blister) will try to throw a bullpen session on Saturday.

If it goes well, he should be cleared to start Monday against the Cardinals. Mejia tore open a big blister on his hand Tuesday after throwing five scoreless innings against the Diamondbacks. The 24-year-old right-hander is 2-0 with a 2.84 ERA and 18 strikeouts in 16 innings this season for the Mets.
Apr 19 - 4:06 PM

Mark Buehrle continued his early season dominance, hurling seven shutout innings to defeat the Indians on Saturday afternoon.

Buehrle surrendered just four hits and three walks while striking out three. The 35-year-old southpaw is now a perfect 4-0 on the season with a stellar 0.64 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 19/5 K/BB ratio through his first 28 innings. He certainly won’t continue at this pace, and may not even prove to be mixed league relevant the remainder of the season, but he should continue to be started until he comes back to earth. He’ll look for his fifth victory when he takes on the Royals in Kansas City on Thursday.

Troy Tulowitzki had a huge day at the plate on Friday against the Phillies, going 3-for-3 with a home run, five RBI, a walk, and two runs scored.

Tulo terrorized the Phillies on Friday, delivering a three-run homer in the second inning, an RBI double in the fourth, and an RBI single in the sixth. Oh, and he also drew a 14-pitch walk against Jonathan Pettibone in a four-run first inning. The veteran shortstop is hitting .360 (18-for-50) with eight extra-base hits (two home runs), 11 RBI, and a .460 on-base percentage through 16 games. It goes without saying, but he's a fantasy monster when healthy.

Jason Vargas spun seven scoreless frames in 5-0 win over the Twins on Friday night.

Vargas scattered seven hits (all singles) in the victory while walking just one batter and fanning four. The 31-year-old left-hander has been excellent so far this season, going at least seven innings in all four of his starts while allowing two runs or fewer in all of them. We don't expect the 1.24 ERA to last, but the Royals have to be thrilled with the early returns on their offseason investment.
Apr 19 - 12:59 AM

James Loney went 2-for-4 with four RBI in Friday's 11-5 win over the Yankees.

Loney knocked in two runs with a double in the fourth inning and later delivered a go-ahead two-run single off Adam Warren in the bottom of the seventh inning. The 29-year-old has hit safely in four out of his last five games, including two multi-hit games, but he's still hitting just .235 on the year. If he can't hit for average, he's pretty much useless in fantasy leagues.
Apr 19 - 12:24 AM

Jonathan Schoop was 4-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in Friday's 8-4 win over the Red Sox.

The four hits were a career-high and included a pair of RBI doubles. The big night pulled his batting average up from .244 to .304. The 22-year-old has swung the bat better in recent days, so he's making a case to stick around even after Manny Machado (knee) comes off the disabled list.
