CBS Sports' Danny Knobler reports that the Tigers are "pushing hard" to trade for a closer.

The Tigers were hoping that hard-throwing rookie Bruce Rondon would take control of the job, but it's already obvious that he could be overmatched, especially for a club that is built to win right now. It's not clear who the Tigers have spoken with, but Knobler notes that the Nationals aren't interested in moving any of their late-inning relievers (Drew Storen and Tyler Clippard). Meanwhile, the Tigers haven't contacted the Red Sox about the availability of Andrew Bailey. If the team can't find a fit outside the organization, they could rely on a closer-by-committee.

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI to help the Phillies top the Indians 4-3 on Saturday.

Galvis took Indians starter Trevor Bauer deep for a two-run shot in the first inning, but it was his RBI single in the bottom of the seventh that proved to be the difference in the game. Galvis now has three home runs, 10 RBI and 10 runs scored to go with a .233/.264/.419 line through 23 games.

Curt Casali hit a walk-off single as the Rays topped the Blue Jays 4-3 on Saturday.

With runners on second and third and no outs, Casali lined a single over the drawn-in infield to bring home the winning run. The single was his only hit in four at-bats. Casali has served as the Rays' primary catcher this season but hasn't brought much to the plate, batting .146/.180/.250 overall.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy has not considered shaking up the starting rotation.

Aging starters Matt Cain (0-3, 7.00 ERA) and Jake Peavy (1-2, 8.61) have both struggled this year but Bochy doesn't see any big changes coming. "I have too much confidence in these two guys," said Bochy. "I don't think there are options that are going to make this staff better." The Giants, who have won every even-year World Series this decade, are off to a disappointing 12-13 start and rank 22nd in the league in starter ERA (4.64).

Jacob deGrom survived a hectic third inning to pick up his third win of the season Saturday against the Giants.

He scattered two hits and three runs (all unearned) over six innings of work. DeGrom didn’t allow a walk in his first two starts but he handed out four free passes Saturday including one with the bases loaded. His fastball touched 95 mph at one point but mostly sat in the low 90s. DeGrom unraveled in the third after a throwing error by Wilmer Flores but he buckled down and threw zeros the rest of the way. It was a trying month for deGrom both personally and physically, but he still managed to go undefeated with a 1.02 ERA in three starts. The long-haired right-hander will go to work again Thursday in San Diego.

Michael Conforto clobbered his fourth home run of the season Saturday in the Mets’ 6-5 victory over the Giants.

Conforto contributed three hits while raising his average to a super-human .365. He finished a triple shy of the cycle. Giants starter Matt Cain simply had no answer for Conforto, getting beat in all three of their encounters. Conforto began 2015 in High-A and finished the year in the major leagues. Now he might be the Mets’ best hitter. His hot bat is a big reason why the Mets have won eight in a row.

Jesse Hahn made a statement in his season debut Saturday, holding the Astros scoreless over 6 2/3 innings in the Athletics' 2-0 win.

Hahn gave up just three hits and walked two in the game. He began the season at Triple-A Nashville after struggling in spring, but he posted a 2.04 ERA in four starts in the minors prior to being recalled. With Chris Bassitt on the disabled list, Hahn will keep his rotation spot for at least the next few weeks. If he pitches well, his stay in the A's rotation will very likely extend beyond Bassitt's return.

Andrew Heaney (arm) will be given a platelet rich plasma injection.

GM Billy Eppler said he expects him to miss at least six more weeks and possibly as many as 12. Heaney went for a second opinion on his strained flexor muscle but doctors didn't find anything new. The only silver lining is that Heaney won't need surgery. The left-hander hasn't pitched in a game since April 5.

Avisail Garcia (hamstring) is not in the White Sox lineup Saturday against the Orioles.

He's not expected to play on Sunday either. The White Sox are off on Monday, which means the earliest we'd see him is Tuesday. Garcia tweaked his hamstring in Friday night's loss. "It’s a little tight," said manager Robin Ventura. "I don’t think it’s a DL situation there but he definitely did something going down the line there." Jerry Sands will DH and bat seventh Saturday with Garcia sidelined.

Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) felt discomfort in his side during Friday's rehab start for Low-A Dayton.

He reported feeling a "sensation" in his injured oblique after throwing 77 pitches over five innings. "We’re really doing everything we can to avoid a setback," said manager Bryan Price. "He was good until the last inning or so, and then it was an issue." DeSclafani was expected to join the Reds for his next start but that seems unlikely now.
Apr 30 - 6:24 PM

Raisel Iglesias is in danger of missing Sunday's start against the Pirates with a right shoulder injury.

Iglesias said he felt a "pinch" on Friday and was examined by team doctors. This could be a recurrence of the shoulder fatigue that plagued him late last season. Louisville right-hander Tim Adleman was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday in case the Reds need him to fill in on Sunday. Iglesias' first five starts have yielded mixed results. His 3.49 ERA is impressive but opponents are hitting .296 against him with four homers in 115 at-bats. Fantasy owners should prepare to be without him on Sunday.
Apr 30 - 6:18 PM

Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Padres.

He'll get the day off after laboring through a dismal 0-for-4 showing on Friday. Puig has watched his average fall from .347 to .250 over his last 10 games. Enrique Hernandez will fill in at right field and bat sixth.
