Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports that the Diamondbacks have signed Cody Ross to a three-year, $26 million contract.

The deal includes an option for a fourth year with a $1 million buyout. The Diamondbacks seemingly came out of nowhere to land Ross, who will join a crowded outfield that already includes Justin Upton, Jason Kubel and Gerardo Parra. His signing likely precludes a trade of either Upton or Kubel, as the D-Backs appear set to let Adam Eaton open the season as their starting center fielder. Ross, 31, had been holding out for a three-year deal after batting .267/.326/.481 with 22 home runs, 81 RBI and an .807 OPS in 130 games this past season. He should have a decent chance at repeating those numbers playing half of his games at hitter-friendly Chase Field.

Kris Bryant is being evaluated after he rolled his right ankle while running the bases in the third inning.

Bryant singled and eventually came around to score in the third inning. He was also hit by a pair of pitches during the game, but his exit wasn't related to this injury. More should be known on his status on Thursday evening or Friday afternoon.

Kris Byrant left Thursday's game against the Brewers in the fifth inning after being hit by a pair of pitches.

Bryant was hit by Taylor Jungmann in the first and fourth innings. He ran the bases after being hit in the fourth inning, but Javier Baez eventually replaced him in left field to begin the fifth inning. The Cubs should pass along an update at some point on Thursday evening.

White Sox placed RHP David Robertson on the bereavement list.

Robertson will be away from the club for 3-7 days following a death in the family. Nate Jones has been excellent in a setup role this season for the White Sox and should slide seamlessly into a fill-in closer role.

Thursday's game between the Pirates and Rockies has been postponed due to wet weather in Denver.

It was actually snowing at one point this morning at Coors Field. Tyler Chatwood was set to go for the Rockies and Juan Nicasio was scheduled for the Bucs. Those starters will presumably be pushed back to Friday.

Miguel Montero underwent an MRI for his back.

Montero has already been placed on the disabled list after experiencing a flareup of the chronic bulging disk issue that has bothered him since 2013. It sounds like this could be an extended absence. David Ross and Tim Federowicz will share time behind the plate, with prospect Willson Contreras waiting in the wings for a mid-summer callup.

Michael Taylor is out of the Nationals' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Phillies.

Matt den Dekker will start in center field and bat leadoff versus Phillies righty Aaron Nola. Taylor is slashing just .192/.231/.301 in 18 games this season and is in danger of losing significant playing time with Ben Revere (oblique) getting closer and closer to activation. Anthony Rendon is also sitting out Thursday, with Stephen Drew filling in at third base.

Brewers transferred RHP Matt Garza from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Which means he is going to be sidelined until at least early June. Garza was placed on the 15-day disabled list April 5, retroactive to April 2, with a right lat strain. The initial recovery timetable was 4-6 weeks.
Apr 28 - 11:03 AM

Brewers placed 2B Scooter Gennett on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique.

Gennett suffered the injury during batting practice Tuesday on a cold evening at Wrigley Field. He could be out for a month. It's an especially tough blow because the second baseman was off to a great start this season, sporting an .877 OPS and four home runs in 18 games. Yadiel Rivera, Colin Walsh, and Hernan Perez will fill in at second base.

Carlos Gomez (wrist) expects to return to the Astros' starting lineup on Friday.

Gomez made an early exit from Wednesday's game against the Mariners after taking a pitch off his right wrist, but X-rays turned up negative. This might be a good excuse to get the ultra-active 30-year-old center fielder some physical and mental rest. He's batting just .197/.228/.250 through 21 games this season. Preston Tucker entered to play left field on Wednesday with Colby Rasmus shifting to center.

Huston Street has been diagnosed with an oblique strain and is headed for the disabled list.

Street felt the strain during his warmup throws on Wednesday night against the Royals. Joe Smith handled the ninth inning instead and earned his first save of the 2016 season. Smith is a must-own in all standard formats given that oblique strains will often sideline pitchers for over a month.
Apr 28 - 1:32 AM

Aledmys Diaz had a homer, a walk, and a single in the Cardinals' 11-4 rout of Arizona on Wednesday.

Diaz finished the night 2-for-4 with two RBI and three runs scored, and he's now batting .468/.500/.823 with four home runs over his first 66 major league plate appearances. This incredible start from the 25-year-old Cuban shortstop is already in historic territory. Maybe it's time for Cardinals manager Mike Matheny to hit him higher than eighth.
