Matt Holliday (side) is back in the Cardinals' Grapefruit League lineup on Wednesday.

Holliday was a late scratch from Tuesday's lineup due to some tightness in his left side, but the Cardinals were merely being cautious. It shouldn't be an issue moving forward.

Madison Bumgarner (finger) struck out eight across 3 2/3 hitless innings in his first rehab start with Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday.

Bumgarner walked one batter and that was the only baserunner he allowed as he threw 47 pitches over his 3 2/3 frames. He also singled in his only plate appearance. Giants manager Bruce Bochy said earlier this month that he expected Bumgarner to make at least three rehab starts, with his next one scheduled for Thursday with High-A San Jose. For what it's worth, Bumgarner thinks he could return sooner if necessary. "I obviously didn't know before today, but judging off the way I felt out there, I think so for sure," Bumgarner said. "I wouldn't say I'd be back and be in midseason form, but I feel definitely good enough to get some outs." Whether the Giants consider moving up MadBum's timetable remains to be seen, but if anyone could make a quicker-than-expected return, it's probably Bumgarner.

Mike Zunino hit a walk-off homer in the bottom of the 12th inning to give the Mariners a 4-3 win on Saturday in 12 innings.

Zunino was having a miserable night before the blast; going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts. One swing of the bat changes miserable night to hero. It's the eighth homer of the season for the backstop, and it came off of Matt Magill with two outs and no one on. Zunino is still hitting just .198, but he's slugging .432. Another hot run could be coming soon for one of the streakiest players in all of baseball.

Christian Villanueva homered twice and drove in three runs in a 7-5 victory over the Dodgers on Saturday.

Villanueva's first blast came off of Alex Wood in the sixth inning with a runner on, and he added insurance with a solo shot off of Josh Fields. The surprising slugger now has 14 homers on the season, and while he's not hitting for average like he was at the beginning of the year, the power is still very much there. Villanueva now owns an .887 OPS over his 44 games this year. He's one of the best stories to begin the 2018 season.

Edwin Encarnacion went 3-for-3 with a two-run home run and three runs scored, and the Indians outlasted the Astros 8-6 on Saturday.

The two sides combined for six homers in the contest, and Encarnacion and his parrot got in on the action with a two-run shot in the fifth inning. He's now got 11 homers on the year, and the 35-year-old has begun to heat up in recent days, picking up five hits in his last seven at-bats. Fantasy owners have been waiting for his usual summer warm-up, and perhaps this is the beginning of a big stretch for Encarnacion.

Jose Altuve had a huge game Saturday against the Indians, finishing 4-for-4 with a triple, a homer, two RBI, two stolen bases and three runs scored.

When we talk about five-category contributors we usually don't mean that they contribute all five categories in one game, but then again, Altuve isn't usual in many aspects. The homer was arguably the most surprising aspect of the line, as he's got just three homers in 53 games this year. The diminutive second baseman is hitting .321/.369/.447 with 26 RBI, 30 runs scored and six steals overall.

Scooter Gennett went 5-for-5 with a homer in a 6-5 victory over the Rockies on Saturday.

Gennett's first hit was his 10th homer of the season, a solo shot off of Colorado starter Tyler Anderson. The other four hits were singles. Gennett is now hitting a very impressive .337/.374/.554 on the season while driving in 36 runs in 51 games. If you haven't yet, it's time to start taking Gennett seriously as a legitimate offensive threat.
May 27 - 12:15 AM

Byron Buxton left Saturday's game against the Mariners after slamming into the outfield wall in the sixth inning.

Buxton was trying to bring back a Nelson Cruz two-run homer but came up short, and ran hard into the wall in the process. He left the game shortly after with a Twins trainer. More should be known about his condition soon.

Mike Trout went 5-for-5 with a two-run home run, three doubles, four total RBI and three runs scored in Saturday's 11-4 win over the Yankees.

Just a monster all-around game for Trout, who stepped up to collect a career-best five hits in what was an impressive win by the road squad. He got his night started with an RBI double off Sonny Gray in the first inning, later knocking out Gray via a two-run home run in the fourth inning and cleaning up with one more RBI two-bagger in a four-run sixth inning. The All-Star outfielder has now homered in three consecutive games. Through his first 179 at-bats this season, Trout is slashing .313/.461/.687 with 17 home runs, 34 RBI, 45 runs scored and 12 steals. Simply remarkable work to date from the perennial MVP candidate, who's still somehow finding ways to top himself.
May 26 - 11:16 PM

Brandon Crawford went 2-for-3 with a double and a two-run home run to help the Giants edge the Cubs 5-4 on Saturday.

Crawford went yard in the fourth inning to get the Giants on the board, his sixth homer of the season. The multi-hit game was his third in his last six contests, leaving his overall line at a surprisingly robust .312/.358/.491 with 23 RBI and 20 runs scored. The traditionally (offensively) boring veteran has hit his way into MI relevance at this point.

Justin Upton left Saturday's game against the Yankees with a left forearm contusion.

He was hit by a Sonny Gray pitch in the arm in the fourth inning, but stayed in for two more innings before being replaced by pinch-hitter Chris Young in the sixth. X-rays were negative, and Upton should be considered day to day at this point. He should be back in there in a day or two, if not sooner.
May 26 - 10:11 PM

Tim Anderson yanked two longballs, drove in four runs and scored three times during Saturday's 8-4 win over the Tigers.

He also made three errors in the contest but his fantasy owners don't care one bit. He popped a solo dinger off starter Francisco Liriano in the fifth inning, then topped that by belting a three-run jack off reliever Louis Coleman in the next frame. He also walked and scored a third run in the ballgame. The leadoff batter has added considerable power this year and is stealing bases at a rapid clip as well. He has a .246 batting average with 10 homers, 18 RBI and 26 runs. He's swiped 11 bases and has been caught only once.
