Latest Headlines

The Blue Jays announced Wednesday that Darren Oliver will be back with the club for the 2013 season.

The Blue Jays picked up Oliver's $3 million club option for 2013 in October, but the veteran left-hander indicated last month that he wanted a raise or a trade to the Rangers in order to come back for his 20th season in the big leagues. It appears that Oliver backed down, as he will return without a raise. The 42-year-old posted a 2.06 ERA and 52/15 K/BB ratio over 56 2/3 innings last season and should be a valuable late-inning arm for a team which is expected to contend in 2013.

Kevin Pillar went 3-for-4 with a pair of home runs and four RBI as the Blue Jays topped the Nationals on Tuesday.

It was a rare offensive outburst from the outfielder, who entered Tuesday's game with a .321 slugging percentage. His first home run was a solo shot to break up a 0-0 tie in the second inning. His second put the Jays up 4-3 in the sixth inning. Pillar is up to four home runs on the season with 21 RBI and a .234/.273/.360 triple-slash line.

Ben Zobrist walked and hit a grand slam in five plate appearances Tuesday, helping send the Athletics past the Tigers on Tuesday.

Zobrist sent an Angel Nesbitt offering to right field for a four-run four-bagger. He had been scuffling at the dish in six games since his activation from the disabled list. He's batting .243/.305/.419 on the year with a pair of home runs and 14 RBI.

Marcell Ozuna hit a bases-loaded double and finished 2-for-4 with three RBI as the Marlins beat the Cubs 5-2 on Tuesday.

Ozuna came up with the bases loaded in the bottom of the fifth inning and cleared them with his 10th double of the year. The runs batted in were his first in more than a week, giving him 18 RBI on the year. Ozuna hasn't found the power stroke yet this year, hitting .272/.329/.372 overall.

Clay Buchholz pitched brilliantly on Tuesday, racking up eight scoreless innings in a win over the Twins.

Buchholz scattered three hits (all singles) and a pair of walks while striking out eight. It's the latest in what has been an elite stretch of pitching. In his last five starts, Buchholz has a 1.95 ERA and a 30/8 K/BB ratio in 37 innings. Overall, he's lowered his ERA to 3.82 with a 1.21 WHIP and a 70/18 K/BB ratio over 68 1/3 innings. He matches up with the Athletics at home in his next outing.

Ricky Nolasco (ankle) is not expected to make his next scheduled start on Friday against the Brewers.

Nolasco is dealing with a right ankle impingement, an ailment that forced him from Sunday's outing. An MRI revealed no structural damage and he's hoping to avoid a disabled list stint, but he won't be ready Friday. More will be known about the right-hander's status when he throws a bullpen session Thursday. J.R. Graham is an option to make a spot start Friday.
Jun 2 - 9:25 PM

Lucas Duda (knee) is back in the Mets' lineup Tuesday.

Duda was hit in the right knee by a pitch Sunday and was too stiff to start Monday. He's back out there Tuesday, though, against Ian Kennedy and the Padres.
Jun 2 - 6:45 PM

Jorge Soler will undergo an MRI Tuesday on his ailing ankle.

The results are expected on Wednesday. Soler hurt the ankle when he landed awkwardly running to first base on Monday night. The Cubs haven't ruled out a potential stint on the disabled list.
Jun 2 - 6:24 PM

Padres activated 1B Yonder Alonso from the 15-day disabled list.

Alonso missed nearly four weeks of action with a right shoulder injury, but he played in six rehab games with no issues. The first baseman was off to a .333/.427/.437 start this season before going on the DL.
Jun 2 - 6:07 PM

Adam Lind (back) is back in the Brewers' lineup Tuesday.

Lind didn't start the last two games due to a back issues, although he had a pinch-hit single on Monday. He has a history of back problems but it appears this was just a minor bump in the road.
Jun 2 - 6:04 PM

Edwin Encarnacion is being bothered by leg discomfort.

There aren't any specifics available at this time. Encarnacion was limited to pinch-hitting duties in the first half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals and is he out of the starting lineup for the nightcap. We'd expect the Blue Jays to have an update soon.
Jun 2 - 5:39 PM

Mariners recalled LHP Mike Montgomery from Triple-A Tacoma.

Montgomery will make his major league debut Tuesday at home against the Yankees and could be up for an extended period if the outing goes well. The 25-year-old left-hander has lost his top-prospect status, but he's put up a decent 3.74 ERA and 47/15 K/BB ratio in 53 innings this season at the Triple-A level. There may be some value here for deep mixed-leaguers.
