The Seattle Times' Geoff Baker projects Jon Garland and Blake Beavan to grab the final two spots in the Mariners' rotation.

That would mean Erasmo Ramirez would begin the season at Triple-A Tacoma. Beavan's inclusion is not a surprise, but Garland's is, as most figured he would just be around as organizational depth after missing most of the last two years with shoulder woes. Baker notes that Garland chose to sign with the M's over the Indians, and he thinks manager Eric Wedge probably assured him a spot on the staff as long as he was healthy and effective, which he has been with a 1.50 ERA over three starts. There's a chance Garland could slide into a long relief role and leave a rotation spot for Ramirez, who obviously has way more upside and is unscored upon this spring. Ramirez could also wind up beating up Beavan for a spot.

Travis Shaw went 3-for-5 with a home run and five RBI in Tuesday's 8-2 win over the Rays.

Shaw hit a solo home run in the second inning, his eighth homer of the season, added a two-run double in the seventh and a two-RBI single in the ninth to extend the Sox' lead. The home run was the first in a month for Shaw, who has fallen hard off his early-season pace. His numbers have been buoyed by that great start, as Shaw is still batting .273/.338/.455 with 44 RBI and 39 runs scored overall.

Corey Kluber held the Braves to just two runs across eight innings in a 5-3 victory Tuesday.

Kluber was pushed back a day in order to get extra rest following last week's shutout. He came close to another shutout in this one, yielding only a two-out, two-RBI single in the sixth inning. He was at just 87 pitches through eight, but the Indians pinch-hit for him in the top of the ninth and wound up breaking the tie. Kluber will carry a 3.50 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 110/23 K/BB ratio over 110 2/3 frames into this weekend's start in Toronto. The Indians have won 11 in a row.

Zack Greinke was pulled from Tuesday's start against the Phillies after just two innings due to an apparent back injury.

Greinke felt something and grabbed for his back after throwing a warmup pitch before the third inning, and that was enough for the D'Backs coaching staff to lift him from the game. He allowed one run on four hits while striking out two before departing. Expect an update from the club shortly.

Lorenzo Cain was lifted from Tuesday's game against the Cardinals with an apparent leg injury.

Cain lunged for first base in an attempt to beat out an infield single and appeared to tweak something. He also had hit base hit taken away from him on video review, literally adding insult to injury. He'll get checked out in the clubhouse and the Royals should have an update on his status shortly.

Cole Hamels struck out seven across seven shutout frames in Tuesday's 7-1 victory over the Yankees.

All six base knocks were singles, and Hamels issued only one walk. The veteran left-hander has been on some kind of roll, dropping his ERA from 3.39 to 2.60 over his last five starts. Hamels now sports a nifty 102/38 K/BB ratio over 103 2/3 innings on the season. He'll go up against the Twins in each of his next two outings.

Carlos Beltran (hanstring) is considered day-to-day after Tuesday's MRI came back clean.

The 39-year-old outfielder was forced to leave Tuesday's game after his first at-bat due to tightness in his right hamstring, the Yankees appeared to have dodged a bullet here though. He may sit out on Wednesday as a precautionary measure, but expect the hot-hitting Beltran back in the lineup by the weekend.

Joe Panik was scratched from the Giants starting lineup on Tuesday due to concussion-like symptoms.

Panik was hit in the head 10 days ago and passed his concussion tests on three consecutive days, but these things tend to linger. It wouldn't be surprising to see the Giants give him a couple of days off. Ramiro Pena will start in his place and bat seventh against Kendall Graveman and the A's.

Aledmys Diaz is expected to miss a few games until the swelling above his right eye subsides.

Diaz is with the club and in good spirits after getting struck above the eye by a foul ball during Monday's game against the Royals. He went through the full concussion protocol after Monday's game, with everything coming back negative. Greg Garcia is starting in his place on Tuesday and should continue to see action until Diaz is cleared to return.

Trevor Story (finger) has returned to the Rockies starting lineup on Tuesday.

Story tested out his injured finger before the game and it appears to have held up just fine. He'll bat second in a premium matchup at home against Blue Jays' southpaw JA Happ.
Jun 28 - 7:00 PM

Athletics activated OF Josh Reddick from the 15-day disabled list.

He'll rejoin the A's lineup immediately, batting third and playing right field against Albert Suarez and the Giants. Reddick had been sidelined since May 19 due to a fractured left thumb. He returns to a .322/.394/.466 line with five homers and 18 RBI in 44 games.
Jun 28 - 6:35 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday that Clayton Kershaw is heading to Los Angeles to visit a back specialist.

Kershaw, who has been battling lower back discomfort for weeks, is hopeful that he'll make his scheduled start against the Rockies on Friday. If he's forced to miss any significant amount of time, it could be devastating to the Dodgers and fantasy owners alike.
