Corey Hart will be sidelined four months after undergoing surgery Friday on his right knee.

Dr. William Raasch performed a debridement of the knee joint surface and repaired a "small" meniscal tear in Hart's knee. The 30-year-old was originally scheduled to go under the knife on Tuesday, but he decided to get a second opinion first. The Brewers are expected to use Mat Gamel at first base until Hart is ready to return, which will be in late May, at the earliest.

Zach Britton earned his fourth save of the season Saturday in the Orioles' 4-1 win over the Red Sox.

Britton retired all three batters he faced -- two via strikeout. The 27-year-old closer has been missing bats at an elevated rate so far this season and has nailed down saves in four of the O's six victories. He looks capable of carrying big time fantasy value all year.

The Nationals are likely to activate Denard Span (abdomen) from the disabled list on Sunday.

Span underwent core surgery on March 9 and has spent the last month and a half recovering. He went 4-for-8 with a home run during a rehab stint with Low-A Hagerstown and made it through Saturday's team workout with the Nationals without any soreness. Span's return should push rookie Michael Taylor back to the pine, or maybe even Triple-A.

Starlin Castro had a walk-off RBI single in a 7-6 win over the Padres in 11 innings on Saturday.

After Craig Kimbrel walked pinch-hitter David Ross to load the bases with one out in the 11th, Castro pulled a pitch into left field to win it for Chicago. He finished the day 3-for-6 with two RBI and a run scored. The 25-year-old has just two extra-base hits (including one home run) so far, but he's hitting .317 (13-for-41) over 10 games.

Justin Upton is day-to-day with a strained quad.

It's unclear when the injury occurred as Upton never left Saturday's game against the Cubs. Upton has been his usual productive self this season, hitting .326 with three home runs and eight RBI. Will Venable could see time in left field if Upton has to sit out a few games.

Kris Bryant got his first major league hit Saturday against the Padres and reached base five times.

Bryant finished the day 2-for-3 with three walks. His first hit was a bloop single in the bottom of the fifth inning which brought home a run. He also had an infield single in the 11th. After going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in his highly-anticipated major league debut on Friday, this performance was nice to see. Fantasy owners are banking on lots of power from Bryant, but ups and downs are to be expected.

Miguel Montero was 2-for-3 with two home runs, three RBI, and a walk against the Padres on Saturday.

Montero hit a solo homer against Tyson Ross in the sixth inning before launching a two-run shot off Chris Rearick in the very next frame. It was the ninth multi-homer game of his career. Montero came into Saturday's action with just two hits over his first 19 at-bats this season. Perhaps this will get him on track.

Giants placed RHP Jake Peavy on the 15-day disabled list with a back strain.

It's the right move as Peavy hasn't looked sharp in either of his two starts this season. With Ryan Vogelsong already filling in for Matt Cain (flexor tendon strain), Yusmeiro Petit seems likely to replace Peavy in the starting rotation. Catcher Andrew Susac was called up from Triple-A to take Peavy's roster spot.

Billy Hamilton is day-to-day with a sore groin.

Hamilton tweaked a groin muscle Saturday when he leaped awkwardly over Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams after beating out a hard grounder to second base. The young speedster looked to be in a good amount of pain and can probably be ruled out for Sunday night's series finale in St. Louis.

Carlos Beltran (illness) is not in the Yankees' lineup on Saturday night against the Rays.

Beltran is dealing with flu-like symptoms and might miss Sunday's game as well. The veteran outfielder has produced a weak .184/.238/.289 slash line on the young season.
Apr 18 - 5:27 PM

Matt Holliday (back) is expected to be in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Sunday.

Holliday's back flared up on Saturday afternoon, leading to an early exit. But it's nothing serious and he should be good to go for Sunday night's series finale with the Reds. The veteran slugger is off to a hot start, hitting .364 with a team-high .476 OBP. He'll have a chance to extend his hitting streak to 11 games if he plays Sunday.
Apr 18 - 5:19 PM

As expected, Garrett Richards (knee) will start Sunday afternoon against the Astros.

Richards tore his left patellar tendon last August. It's a welcome return, as the Angels' rotation entered Saturday with the fifth-highest ERA in the American League. Richards enjoyed a breakout season last year, compiling a 13-4 record, 2.61 ERA, and 1.04 WHIP over 26 starts. Expect more of the same in 2015.
