According to Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com, Albert Pujols will participate in the World Baseball Classic for his native Dominican Republic, provided that his surgically-repaired knee continues to feel good.

Pujols underwent a very minor knee procedure in early October to relieve some mild pain that he played through during the 2012 season. His rehab has gone smoothly so far, but he'll probably opt to test the knee out during spring training before officially committing to play in the WBC. The Angels still owe him a total of $238 million.

Mike Minor (shoulder) will throw a side session Tuesday.

Jean Segura has been dropped to seventh in the order Monday against the Padres.

Segura has batted second in his previous 17 starts this season, but he's hitting just .233/.263/.301 through 78 plate appearances, so Brewers manager Ron Roenicke is going to try something different. Scooter Gennett will slide into the second spot Monday.

Pirates placed LHP Wandy Rodriguez on the 15-day disabled list with right knee inflammation.

Rodriguez has been a mess to start the season, allowing 17 runs in 20 innings over four starts. He has also surrendered a league-leading seven home runs. Rodriguez has struggled to throw with his usual velocity. The Pirates hope some rest will make their lefty better in the long run.

Indians activated DH Jason Giambi from the 15-day disabled list.

Giambi is fully recovered from a broken rib suffered on March 7 when he was hit with an Edwin Jackson fastball. He has been rehabbing over the last two weeks, going hitless in 10 plate appearances with Triple-A Akron. The Indians optioned RHP Blake Wood to Triple-A Columbus to make room for Giambi on the roster.

Mets recalled OF Bobby Abreu from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Abreu, 40, hasn't been in the big leagues since 2012, but he has been performing well for Las Vegas to start the season. Over 45 plate appearances, Abreu slashed .395/.489/.579 with more walks than strikeouts, seven to five. The Mets optioned OF Andrew Brown to Las Vegas to make room for Abreu on the roster.

Clay Buchholz was on the hook for six runs in 2 1/3 innings as the Red Sox lost to the Orioles on Monday.

Buchholz couldn't ramp up his velocity and the Orioles were making solid contact as a result. The right-hander threw 55 pitches, but induced only three whiffs. Overall, Buchholz allowed seven hits and walked one while recording one strikeout. He will look to right the ship against the Blue Jays in his next start.
Apr 21 - 2:28 PM

J.J. Hardy (hamstring) is not in the Orioles' starting lineup on Monday against the Red Sox.

Hardy suffered a mild strain of his right hamstring in Sunday night's game at Fenway Park and will sit out of Monday's early Patriots' Day tilt. The Orioles believe he will avoid a trip to the 15-day disabled list. The full Baltimore lineup for Monday: DH Nick Markakis, RF Nelson Cruz, 1B Chris Davis, CF Adam Jones, C Steve Clevenger, 3B Jonathan Schoop, SS Ryan Flaherty, 2B Steve Lombardozzi, LF David Lough. Wei-Yin Chen is the starting pitcher.

Ryan Howard went 4-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Sunday's 10-9 win over the Rockies.

The game was an absolute slugfest, and Howard provided plenty of punch. The first baseman hit a two-run homer in the third inning before legging out his first triple of the season in the sixth inning. He finished with three runs scored in the game. It was Howard's first four-hit game since July 30, 2011.

Justin Morneau went 2-for-4 with a home run and five RBI in Sunday's loss to the Phillies.

Morneau got it done in a number of different ways, singling in a run in the first inning, producing an RBI groundout in the third and lifting a sacrifice fly in the fifth before blasting a two-run homer in the seventh. He's been on an absolute tear lately, mashing three home runs and collecting 12 RBI during a five-game hitting streak. He's up to .344 with a .981 OPS for the season.
Apr 20 - 9:36 PM

Buster Posey hit a two-run home run as the Giants beat the Padres 4-3 on Sunday.

With one runner aboard in the first inning, Posey took Robbie Erlin to deep center for his fourth homer of the year. It was his only hit on the afternoon, and the catcher is batting an uncharacteristic .238/.314/.444 through the early games. He's got just three RBI in his last eight games.
Apr 20 - 9:07 PM

Yasiel Puig hit a three-run home run en route to a 4-1 win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

With two runners on, Puig deposited an 88 mph cutter from Josh Collmenter into the seats in left-center field. It was his only hit of the game, as the Dodgers mustered just five against the right-hander despite going home victorious. Amid plenty of controversy, Puig is batting .241/.349/.426 with two homers thus far.
