Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Pablo Sandoval (elbow) was pain-free Tuesday and the club is feeling more optimism that the third baseman will be ready for Opening Day.

Sandoval will do some light work Wednesday, including hitting off a tee and playing catch. He shouldn't be penciled into the Opening Day lineup until he shows he can get through a few throwing sessions with no issues, but he's certainly trending in the right direction.

Alex Rodriguez inched one step closer to tying Willie Mays, blasting his 659th career home run in Sunday's 6-4 victory over the Mets.

His solo shot came courtesy of Mets starter Jon Niese and got the Yankees on the board in the first inning. He would also add an RBI double, finishing the night 2-for-4. The 39-year-old has been awfully impressive thus far in 2015, slashing .267/.405/.583 with five homers and 13 RBI.

Mike Trout hit a two-run home run in the seventh inning of Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

Trout smashed the long-ball off of Anthony Bass. It was his fourth homer of the season and his first since April 17. He finished the game 1-for-4 with two RBI and two walks. After a nuclear start to the season, Trout's "cooled off" to a .318/.432/.545 line. There's no reason to expect his usual brilliance to legitimately fade any time soon.

Joe Mauer tripled to drive in two runs in the eleventh inning, helping the Twins to a 4-2 win.

Mauer hit the big triple off of Tyler Olson. In addition to the extra-inning heroics, he also smacked an RBI double in the third inning. He would finish the game 3-for-5 with a walk and three RBI. The Twins star now has eight hits in his last 19 at-bats and is slashing .299/.392/.373. Mauer's lack of power remains a concern (he has yet to hit a home run and hit just four last season), but he's clearly seeing the ball well as the calender nears May. Hopefully Sunday's game is a sign of things to come.

Francisco Liriano delivered a strong performance in Sunday's victory over the Diamondbacks, whiffing six over 6 1/3 scoreless innings.

In typical Liriano fashion, the hard-throwing southpaw allowed just two hits but issued six walks, giving the Diamondbacks ample scoring chances. He was able to make big pitches in key situations though and came through the outing unscathed. He now sports a 2.22 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 30/12 K/BB ratio across 24 1/3 frames on the season. He'll look to replicate this effort when he does battle against the Cardinals in St. Louis on Saturday.

Brandon Morrow pitched a gem against the Dodgers on Sunday, allowing just one run over seven innings.

This is the third time in four starts that Morrow has pitched seven innings (he went six innings in his other start). Pretty impressive for a guy who had to win the No. 5 spot in the rotation out of Spring Training. Against the Dodgers, he struck out four, scattered five hits and walked just one. Morrow's only mistake came on a solo home run by Alex Guerrero in the fifth inning. Otherwise, everything came up aces. Through 27 innings, he holds a 2.67 ERA and a 19/6 K/BB ratio. As long as he stays healthy, he has the talent to put up numbers. Morrow will look to continue his sparkling run on a mountainous road date with the Rockies next Saturday.

Francisco Rodriguez notched his third save of the season Sunday in the Brewers' 6-3 win over the Cardinals.

Rodriguez delivered a perfect ninth inning, getting Kolten Wong to ground out and Peter Bourjos and Tony Cruz to fly out on just 10 total pitches. It was career save No. 351 for K-Rod, whose fantasy stock should rise rapidly as the Brewers work out of their early-season rut.

Hanley Ramirez homered twice and drove in four runs in an 18-7 loss to the Orioles on Sunday.

Hanley's onslaught didn't come until the game was well out of reach. He hit a solo home run in the eighth inning and a three-run shot in the ninth to draw the team to within 18-7. Close but not quite on the comeback. Han-Ram now has eight home runs and 17 RBI, with a terrifying slash of .300/.359/.643. Some guys crumble under the pressure of playing for the Red Sox, some guys don't. Ramirez is clearly of the later species and is making his club look very smart for signing him to the big off-season deal.
Apr 26 - 5:21 PM

Delmon Young drove in five of the 18 runs the Orioles scored in Sunday's 18-7 romp over the Red Sox.

Toss a dart at a name in the Oriole lineup from Sunday and you'll likely come up with a few RBI. Young led the crew with five, but he was far from alone, as Chris Davis, Steve Pearce, and Jimmy Paredes each had three. Where to begin? We'll just roll through some of the highlights. Young had RBI singles in the third and fourth innings, then hit a two-run double in the seventh. He entered the game with just two RBI on the season and left with seven. Davis supplied a two-run double in the third and a solo homer in the sixth. Paredes chipped in his first triple of the season. It was simply an offensive supernova. Guys like Young and Pearce aren't suddenly going to turn into RBI machines, but for one game, everybody in the middle of the Oriole lineup was locked in.

Nationals manager Matt Williams said Sunday that Max Scherzer (thumb) is unlikely to pitch on Tuesday.

Scherzer was unable to throw his scheduled bullpen session on Sunday due to his thumb still being swollen. The Nationals don't believe that he will miss multiple starts or require a stint on the disabled list. Tanner Roark is the most logical candidate to start in his place and makes for a decent streaming option against the Braves in Atlanta.
Apr 26 - 4:37 PM

Miguel Cabrera finished 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI as the Tigers topped the Indians 8-6 on Sunday.

Miggy singled in the first inning, singled and scored in the third inning, jacked a two-run shot in the sixth inning, and then plated James McCann with a sacrifice fly in the eighth. Cabrera is off to a tremendous start in 2015, batting .377/.463/.580 with three home runs and 13 RBI in 19 games.
Apr 26 - 4:35 PM

Jake Arrieta held the Reds to two runs over six innings Sunday in the Cubs' 5-2 win.

Arrieta had a perfect game until the bottom of the fourth inning, when Todd Frazier slugged a two-out solo homer to left field. Arrieta allowed only one more run the rest of the way -- on a Billy Hamilton fielder's choice in the bottom of the fifth inning -- moving to 3-1 with a 2.03 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, and 25/7 K/BB ratio in 26 2/3 total frames. He gets the Brewers at home next time out.
