Dodgers avoided arbitration with C A.J. Ellis by agreeing to a one-year, $2 million contract.

Ellis was arbitration-eligible for the first time as a Super 2 qualifier. The 31-year-old backstop hit a nice .270/.373/.414 with 13 homers for the Dodgers in 2012 and will be their regular catcher again in 2013.

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.

Leonys Martin homered, tripled and drove home four runs, leading the Rangers in a 12-0 rout of the White Sox in Texas on Friday.

Martin wound up 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored in the game, finishing a double short of the cycle. He's doing everything in his power to show that he deserves to be hitting higher in the lineup, slashing .315/.373/.444 with a homer, nine RBI and two steals on the season.

Martin Perez was terrific in his first career shutout on Friday, scattering just three hits and striking out nine against the White Sox.

Perez needed just 109 pitches to complete his masterpiece. The 23-year-old southpaw has been dominant through his first four starts, compiling a 1.86 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 20/7 K/BB ratio in 29 innings. He'll look to extend that success when he takes on the Athletics in Oakland on Wednesday.

Howie Kendrick homered twice and drove home four runs, leading the Angels to an 11-6 win over the Tigers on Friday.

Serving as the team's DH and hitting in the cleanup spot seemed to come naturally to Kendrick. He tagged starter Drew Smyly with an opposite field two-run shot in the third inning, then blasted another off Luke Putkonen the following inning. He finished the night 3-for-5 and is now hitting .261/.320/.391 on the season.

Aaron Harang threw seven no-hit innings in a win over the Mets on Friday.

Harang was pulled after throwing 121 pitches. Six walks cost him a chance to finish off the no-hit bid. The Mets finally got a hit when David Wright singled off Luis Avilan with two outs in the bottom of the eighth. Some questioned the Braves' decision to release Freddy Garcia and sign Harang at the end of spring training, but things have worked out brilliantly for the Braves so far. Through four starts, the 35-year-old has a 0.70 ERA and 22/12 K/BB ratio over 25 2/3 innings. He'll try to keep his surprising resurgence alive next week against the Marlins at home.
Apr 18 - 10:42 PM

Giancarlo Stanton blasted a walk-off grand slam off Yoervis Medina on Friday, powering the Marlins to an 8-4 victory.

Stanton had a huge night at the plate, going 3-for-3 with a pair of runs scored, five RBI and also walked twice. He's been an absolute monster in the first few weeks of the season, slashing .329/.390/.657 with six homers and 26 RBI. As long as he can remain healthy, the sky is the limit.
Apr 18 - 10:36 PM

Carlos Gomez blasted his fifth home run of the season on Friday, powering the Brewers to a 5-3 victory over the Pirates in Pittsburgh.

Gomez finished the night 2-for-5 with a pair of RBI. His long ball, a towering shot to center off Charlie Morton in the fifth inning, proved to be the difference maker in the ballgame. He’s off to a tremendous start to the season, hitting .329/.385/.629 with five homers and 12 RBI in his first 17 contests.
Apr 18 - 10:19 PM

Gio Gonzalez limited the Cardinals to just one run over seven innings Friday in a 3-1 win.

Nice to see after he was knocked around for six runs last time out. Gonzalez gave up just four hits (three of them singles) and one walk. The only run scored on an RBI single by Mark Ellis in the fourth inning. He struck out seven batters in the victory. Gonzalez now owns a 2.88 ERA and 24/8 K/BB ratio in 25 innings across four starts. He'll get the Angels next week.
Apr 18 - 10:02 PM

Pirates acquired 1B Ike Davis from the Mets in exchange for RHP Zachary Thornton and a player to be named.

The 27-year-old slugger has fallen off after a breakthrough 2012 campaign where he smashed 32 homers and drove home 90 runs. The change of scenery, and the likelihood that he receives everyday at-bats, should be a tremendous boost to his fantasy value affords him the chance to get his career back on track.
Apr 18 - 7:22 PM

Manny Machado (knee) will play five innings at third base in an extended spring training game Saturday.

Machado was cleared after doing some sliding on Friday with no issues. It will be the third baseman's first game action since last October's knee surgery. The Orioles have been careful not to make any hard and fast deadlines for Machado, but it's beginning to look like he should be ready to go pretty early on in May.
Apr 18 - 5:32 PM

Athletics signed LHP Sean Doolittle to a four-year contract extension.

The deal was announced as a five-year contract, but it includes this season. The A's will also have club options for 2019 and 2020. The financials of the contract are not yet known. Doolittle would have been eligible for arbitration for the first time this winter, so the new deal will buy out his arbitration years and possibly his first two years of free agency. Doolittle holds a 3.10 ERA with 129 strikeouts over 125 innings over his first 122 relief appearances for the A's.
