Latest Headlines

Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Orioles are nearing a contract extension with manager Buck Showalter.

Showalter and team principal owner Peter Angelos met face-to-face this past week and "established parameters" for a multi-year deal, according to Connolly. The specifics are expected to be worked out before a contract is finalized sometime in January. Showalter's current deal is set to expire after the 2013 season. He led the Orioles to a 93-69 record in 2012 and finished runner-up to the A's Bob Melvin in the AL Manager of the Year voting.

Domingo Santana (shoulder) is back in the Brewers' starting lineup Tuesday versus the angels.

Santana was a late scratch from Monday's series opener due to tightness in his right lat. It clearly wasn't anything too serious. He is starting in right field and batting leadoff Tuesday against Nick Tropeano.

Ryan Braun is out of the Brewers' starting lineup Tuesday due to general soreness.

It sounds like a routine day off, for the most part. Braun went 3-for-3 on Monday night against the Angels and is batting .372/.443/.605 in 24 total games this year.
May 3 - 4:02 PM

Mike Moustakas is out of the starting lineup for the second straight day Tuesday.

The thought was that he was just getting the day off on Monday, but it sounds like something could be up. The Royals should provide an update soon. Christian Colon is starting at third base versus Washington.

Zach Britton (ankle) will play catch Tuesday and could return this week.

Britton sprained his left ankle Saturday while trying to field an Adam Eaton bunt, but X-rays and an MRI both revealed no structural damage. He should be back soon, but Darren O'Day could vulture a save chance or two this week, so he's worth stashing for now in fantasy leagues.

J.T. Realmuto will bat leadoff Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

It's an outside-the-box choice as the Marlins try to fill the void left by the suspended Dee Gordon. But Realmuto has some speed and is batting .312/.329/.455 through 20 games this season. It's worth a shot, especially with lefty Patrick Corbin on the mound.

Reds activated LHP John Lamb from the 15-day disabled list.

Lamb will start Tuesday in place of Jon Moscot, who has been dealing with a shoulder issue. Acquired from the Royals in the Johnny Cueto deal last July, the 25-year-old Lamb was forced to begin this season on the disabled list following back surgery in December. He had an ugly 9.22 ERA through three rehab starts in Triple-A, but he had a 12/3 K/BB ratio in 13 2/3 innings and averaged 10.5 K/9 over 10 starts with the Reds late last year. He's worth grabbing in NL-only formats.
May 3 - 3:26 PM

Orioles placed SS J.J. Hardy on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 2, with a left foot fracture.

Hardy suffered the injury when he fouled a ball off his foot in the fourth inning of Sunday's game. He's expected to miss around 6-8 weeks. Manny Machado is an option to fill in at shortstop during Hardy's absence, though Ryan Flaherty is getting the first start there Tuesday. Chris Davis and Pedro Alvarez could see time at third base if Machado makes the move to shortstop.
May 3 - 3:12 PM

Jason Heyward (wrist) is out of the starting lineup again on Tuesday against the Pirates.

The struggling Heyward is dealing with a sore right wrist, but hopes to return as soon as Wednesday. Kris Bryant will play right field Tuesday while Jorge Soler will start in left and bat second. Javier Baez will play third base.
May 3 - 2:41 PM

Tigers activated C James McCann from the 15-day disabled list.

McCann, out since April 11 with a sprained ankle, went 2-for-15 with two RBI during a minor league rehab stint. Jarrod Saltalamacchia has swung the bat well during his absence, but he'll presumably shift into a diminished role now that McCann is healthy.
May 3 - 2:16 PM

Red Sox activated RHP Carson Smith from the 15-day disabled list.

Smith, who began the season on the disabled list with a strained flexor tendon, was cleared to join the Red Sox after making it through two minor league rehab games. The 26-year-old was acquired from the Mariners over the winter and is capable of being a dominant set-up man if healthy.

Pablo Sandoval needs reconstructive surgery on his left shoulder, per ESPN's Buster Olney.

Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reported Monday night that the surgery is "significant" and the odds are against Sandoval playing this season, so Olney's report appears to jibe with that. The 29-year-old has received all sorts of criticism for his level of fitness, but his situation is much more complicated. The big question is what sort of future Sandoval has in Boston. He still has three guaranteed years (and $58 million) on his contract. The Red Sox will have the DH spot open after David Ortiz retires, so that could be where Sandoval slots in if healthy in 2017. A change of scenery might be the best for all involved, but the Red Sox would have to pick up most of his remaining contract for anyone to take a chance on him.
